Tales Of Xillia 2 - Story and Cutscenes

Haven't played too many games this year though I did finish up Tales Of Xillia in preparation for Tales of Xillia 2 which came out not too long ago.  Both Xillia games were interesting enough to keep me occupied for over a hundred hours or so (combined).  Though repetition starts to fatigue you if you end up playing both games back to back ( combat and explorable areas).  The major difference between both games is mostly how the story unfolds and the new almost silent protagonist Ludger.  Xillia 2 takes an almost western approach to RPG design with dialogue choices and somewhat different paths to take in the story, though the different choices you make almost seem to affect the surface level of the game and you don't get radically different scenes in the fairly linear story.  So there is marginal replay value if you want to NG+ this game.  All in all I enjoyed it but if you don't want to take the step and buy the game, I made a basic playlist of the main Xillia 2 storyline for viewing below.
