Oh yeah, Tales Of Graces is all about that. Itís really the big form of progression outside the traditional level ups.
I see. Three more questions come to mind.
No trope that I know of.
That's Tales Of Graces too, each title you earn has to be equipped and has 5 levels to be grinded. 1, 3 and 5 usually had skills or enhanced the already earned skill if it was the same. There were something like 200 titles per character.
Some of them were like "Resist (block) Petrify 5 times for the Stoneproof title" or "Cooked Curry in battle 10 times for the Curry Lover title".
Equipping some titles would change victory quotes or change the character skin.
The Star Ocean games also had titles which gave benefits, being made by old Tales Of game makers, they were slightly different in that they didn't need to be equipped and the number earned is what gave you bonuses.

So, I have been having fun with Uncharted 2 and I'm almost near the end of the game. I only have two chapters left.
Anyone wanna play some Rocket League with me? I'm TekkenGirl4Lyfe on PSN.
As far as titles and Tales games go, itís not just Graces. Most of them have it in some form or another. Theyíre usually earned throughout the game and affect stats. The older games even had costumes tied to them.
So, since I finished playing Uncharted 2, I decided to replay Drakengard 3. It's still fun and I really like the banter between the party members.
Finished off Metroid 2: Samus Returns today. Went from getting the Power Bomb to the end of the game in one sitting.
Man, sometimes I forget how long it can take to get though games unless you focus on them. I started trying to clear my backlog about 2 weeks ago, and so far just KH 2 and that is done.
I also got Octopath yesterday, which brings my currently playing list to three: Octopath, A Hat in Time and Earthbound.
Although I'm playing along Earthbound to Chuggaaconroy's Lets Play, so that'll probably get played 2-3 times a week, unless I get sucked in.
I also am aiming to knock off A Hat In Time if possible this weekend.
So, I finished God of War (2005) yesterday evening. It was a pretty fun game. I like the combat and the music was pretty good. Kratos isn't a good guy at all but he's an interesting character. The game has its flaws but I liked it overall. I'll start of God of War 2 when I get the chance.
Besides that, I'm almost done replaying Tales of Symphonia for the third time. It's been going pretty good so far. I really like this game. The combat is pretty fun and the story and characters are pretty good.
Finally, I'm playing The Darkness 2. This game is pretty good so far. The graphics look really for a 2011 game and I like the art style. The shooting mechanics and the powers you have are pretty fun as well. I'll keep playing

I recently got myself a new desktop computer, mostly for the purpose of replacing the old, crappy, broken-down laptop that I've been using since around 2012.
I've never been much of a PC gamer (consoles were my thing and always will be), but I've started dabbling a bit with Steam. As of now I've gotten the SPY Fox bundle (I grew up with an old PC and several of Humongous Entertainment's games, with SPY Fox being my favorite), Ultimate Doom, Quake I, and Vanquish.
My main gaming system right now is the Switch, but I'm considering using my PC for games that are not on Switch right now and most likely won't be ported over any time soon, like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Assassin's Creed Origins, Resident Evil 2 (remake), and Devil May Cry 5 (even if I'd rather just wait for those games to be ported over if possible).
Last year I made a list of games I owned that I 100% intended to play one day, although I did end up adding more to the list over time.
Since then I've completed 11/19 of the games on the list. So I decided to re-update it, since I felt it really helped me in getting though more games.
This is my updated list for this year.
It doesn't include everything, since I was mainly aiming for physical games, but its still a hefty chunk of gametimenote I used a rough number based on the website How Longto Beat specifics doesn't matter too much for me, its just helpful for pairing a game length with my mood .
I really thought this approach worked well for me. Initially I thought maybe the idea of a checklist would take some of the fun out of it, but I found it makes it easier to decide to play next. Especially since the initial 3-4 hours to decide if I like the game or not generally comes out of time I'd just be meandering/browsing the internet/not doing much otherwise.
Maybe it might not work for everyone, but if anyone else has a bunch of games sitting around collecting dust I think a list is a good thing to try.
Big news, folks - scuttlebutt from a usually-reliable source on Fromsoft that Miyazaki is giving us Escaflowne Souls.
Sad news, possibly due to Telltale Games ending, all of their games will be removed from all digital gaming stores like Steam and Gog.com by the end of the month.
Just discovered that Ethnic Cleansing is an actual thing.
... How the fuck did this not get shut down as blatant hate speech???

Ah since I dunno where to put, the seventh and final episode of AMID EVIL has been released and with that the game is finally out of the early access.
What a glorious time for throwback shooters + Doom and Doom Eternal! After a over a decade of Halo or Call of Duty shooters, this is refreshing and makes me happy.
We probably need an EVO general thread for this, but:
EVO is partnering with PlayStation for 8 of the 9 events going on at EVO 2019.
Is there a name for gamer behavior of keep buying games without finishing the ones already bought? I KNOW it's a ridiculously common thing, especially those with Steam account, and I think I have that issue as well right now.
Hah, I finally found this sucker.
And with some bad news: Gamestop has surprise laid off 120 employees, both at its cooperate office in Grapevine, Texas and at other offices, including Game Informer in Minnesota where half of the employees were laid off.
Kazuya Ninou, Dragon Quest Builders 1 and 2 director and Etrian Odyssey creator, has left Square Enix.
