While some companies are pretty predatory such as Gacha or even types of DLC, I do think that nothing is more worse than Korean MMOs, and they've been doing this for years, way before the DLC floods lol.
Some of their MMO history is pay-to-win or they end their service at a set date line if I remember.
Tales of Arise is pretty impressive so far. Areas of the game are probably the most detailed of any of the Tales games currently.
Honestly my only gripe is the characters and every NPC out there. They feel and act like sandpaper, though i'm sure they'll grow on me eventually. Think Vesperia and Abyss has the best cast overall that not even Berseria can hold a candle to honestly.
Overwatch changing a character name based off an employee because of the recent issues of Blizzard. And to think all this started from World of Warcraft, can't blame them for changing it but the effort seems so little.
