Couldn't get the limited edition, but I have this game pre ordered. The hype is real.

Hmm, malak is a "divine messenger" in hebrew, is that what they are called in Japan? Interesting, are they simplifying their terms from critisim of them becoming overly complex in the past?

This will be the game to tide me over until Zelda. I enjoyed Zestiria enough to beat it, and if Berseria is a better game I'm there day one. I have it pre-purchased on Steam already.

I'm guessing malaks are the equivalent of seraphim from ToZ but they're still visible to humans?

Here's hoping for this one. I'm kinda iffy going off Japanese and import impressions. The people didn't like Zestiria, which is the best title since Graces (best overall since Vesperia?).

I had the reg edition with the same delivery estimate. I talked with cs, but they couldn't commit to a delivery time. So I just cancelled, and got it from Best Buy. I mean if you don't mind waiting, you could just keep it since you have the CE.

Kinda feel like getting it, but I guess I've got Yakuza 0 to play tomorrow and Wednesday. I'll wait for the PC version.

done, I just deleted the whole section...

I wish sites would mark these things as "plot spoilers" instead of casually listing them with the rest of the characters...

I literally just finished Zestiria last night after 60 grueling hours.

That game just refused to end, with so much forced padding that it made the WW triforce hunt feel breezy. My interest and motivation nosedived hard in the back third as the story also went completely off the rails and became a confusing, illogical mess doing whatever it can to attempt an explanation to what is happening. My desire to engage with the muddled skill system and even character skits checked out long before the conclusion. All interest was lost as I just wanted to get my completion trophy and delete. Shame as I quite liked the game early on too, but Zestiria really did turn out to be my least favorite Tales game on the franchise(of those played). It's a mess and GAF was right.

That said, I am ready to jump into Berseria! Thought I would burnout playing both back to back, but I really am looking forward to a good Tales game especially now.

Berseria is a notably higher game in quality than Zesteria is. So it stands to reason it would get higher scores...

That's.... pretty good actually if most reviewers will share the same opinion.

Visuals has always been bad after Vesperia, so it's not surprising.

Ign gave it 8.8, a really high score. I think the reviewer is the resident JRPG fan so that's cool.

Also, I'm strongly considering cancelling my CE at Amazon and just pre-ordering on PSN. If anyone is interested in the CE still, I can post here or PM when I cancel it so you can try to grab it.

Expected harsher reviews. So far they're actually lining up pretty well with many of the impressions in the import thread.

Also I recommend playing this game on hard mode. Normal is really easy IMO.

The OP has a paragraph describing it. Sounds more like FFIX where each piece of equipment has skills attached you learn passively by equipping. Once you master learning each skill(likely via combat) you can swap the piece for something else and keep what you learned permanently. So yes, very different from Zestiria.

How is hard mode compared to xillia difficulty? I found xillia normal mode enough challenging, not too frustrating but punishes enough if you are low on level and gear. Is berseria's hard mode equivalent to normal mode in xillia?

To me Hard in Berseria would be around Normal in Xillia. The main thing in Berseria is that each character has special abilities that feel overturned in Normal Mode, and if you've already played Graces and/or Zestiria this game won't feel too unfamiliar, which can further reduce the challenge. It's fun if you just want to wreck stuff but I feel Hard mode asks for a little more finesse in normal encounters without necessarily requiring a super high understanding of the game or a lot of precision.
