    Once you've played through the whole saga you realize that the whole waifu harem is just a smokescreen and Cold Steel is actually about

    Ruan is one of the most interesting acts in TITS 1. But it also heavily involves acting in a school play, so, Max Damage, you can take from that what you will. I will say that you're right, the 4-5 times the game does make you "click on everything for a while, then come back and you can advance," it is really annoying. But if you got to Ruan maybe you should bear with it.

    The scenes with the mayor are pretty damn great. I think it was at that point I was really sold on Trails, and everything afterwards was a slope of incline for me.

    I'll keep that in mind, thanks. I've already moved on to playing Mana Khemia, will give my TitS save another try after I'm done with it.

    Decided to fight the cryptid Volyglyph on nightmare when I first encountered him (my party was at level 75). Whew, he was pretty tough. Managed to beat him on the fifth attempt. Enjoyable difficulty, though I imagine as I unlock more stuff the game will be easier to break.

    New map:

    [​IMG]

    Seems there'll be two more arcs for the Trails series, one in Calvard and one in Leman. An interim title following on from Cold Steel 4 will likely come before the latter arc.

    Nice to see a map showing North Ambria. I think we get to visit it in CS3 or 4?

    Don't think so - maybe it will be the location for an intermission game with Sara as the protagonist? Or maybe not....

    Why is Rean such a pussy? Just have a beer with Sara FFS you’re involved in a war and could die before you turn 20.

    You don't visit North Ambria in CS3 or CS4. It's involved in some important background story, however.

    Borderline harem character directive demands that the protagonist be a wimp when it comes to interaction with female characters in any way.

    Cold Steel 3 fixes Rean in this regard and a few others.

    Thank Aidios. I generally like Rean, but I’ve given the guy like 20 chances to unwind with Sara over the first game and 20-30 hours of the second. He doesn’t even have to bone her, just to be a little less of a cliche shonen protagonist.

    Harems are appealing until you actually have some experience with women, and then dealing with one is enough. If I had to deal with a harem’s worth of hormones and emotion and desire for my attention when I just want to unwind with my playstation, I would turn into a perpetually intoxicated Al Bundy.

    But Seboist & Somberlain why not both Claire and Sara?
    :shredder:
    PS I’m drinking whiskey and playing this instead of Bloodstained because I kept seeing your waifu avatars in the other thread.

    When you've had the best (Sara), you can't accept the rest (Claire,etc).

    They also said that Calvard and Leman arcs will be divided into two games each. But before that, they will release a spin-off closing the story of Erebonia and Crossbell, as did "The third" with Liberl.
