Obviously different cultures have different standards on what is age-acceptable. Japan's CERO rating standards have changed since the release of Tales of the Abyss, hence why newer Tales games are often rated B or C.
The "darker" and societal themes that are prominently featured in the Tales series aren't a foreign concept to western animation, anyway (see: The Land Before Time – A Philosophy of Childrens Entertainment | Guerrilla Ontology). It's just a really common thing for western culture to shelter our children from these concepts in media, or at least portray them as something totally not meant for the eyes of the youth, which in my honest opinion is total BS since it's more enriching than damaging. Horror games and their rather... erm, sublime imagery are a different matter though. Nightmare fuel and quantity of blood in Zelda-esque doses aren't too bad, really.
Wow! Why can't they release three?
I am one of the few EarthBound fans that is upset. For one, I don't have a WiiU, and two... I have the SNES cartridge... It will likely lose its value.
Nintendo uses Remake! It's super effective! Greece fainted!
Personally I don't have much interest in the game, but after hearing about all the issues with this over the past couple years, I gotta say I'm glad to hear it. ^^
Happy Bulbaversary to you, Greece! ;D Sorry I haven't been on more often. But hey, you know where to turn if you ever are feeling chatty about those Tales games! lol

According to this preview we're getting "Carpet Diem" on April 5th (the idea isn't new, as Mr. Hirsch admits to here, but I'm so looking forward to this bodyswap episode! xD), and Wikipedia and the GF wiki say "Boyz Grazy" will air on April 19th. (Which after the months long hiatus isn't too bad of a wait, but you know, withdrawals and gross sobbing, standard symptoms of a fangirl without her fix.)
Thanks for saying I'm entertaining. I love meeting people who share my same odd sense of humor. xD
Happy Anniversary of the Day You Joined This Website That Led to Us Becoming Buddies! :D
