entry very much in progress.

i’m writing from the perspective of someone who’s played the game thoroughly and explored the backstory in some detail, but it’s as much a process of rediscovery as enjoying the good ol’ times because it’s been two years and my head has in the meantime filled with the alphabet soup of EBITDA and PVIFA.

meta for my own reference more than anything after the cut.

backstory

music

  • karma lyrics and translations. besides being great to work out to, it should be noted that karma is a gigantic spoiler for the entire game, hohoho. abyss being all about the score and all, the music is wonderful, especially the final-boss themes – yes, two or three of them – tying all musical motifs into one.
  • crossreference songs for tales of the abyss and luke’s journal (the game’s synopsis script), paying attention to key phrases.

game replay videos

game omake

meta

  • i find CFUD, as always, very useful for character-driven storylines such as abyss’s, although i REALLY need to track down previous generation players
  • guy backstory dump
  • awesome replay logs: 1 2 3 4 5
  • more replay logs 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21
  • even more replay logs + meta 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

wank

editor’s note: everything not discretely listed, wink wink yourself kthx.
