This mod adds a universal photo mode to over 300 Unreal Engine games

Photo modes are undeniably in fashion now, so much so that I’ve just started assuming most major RPGs and third-person action games will have one built in at launch. I’ve never put in the time to get particularly skilled at lining up the best shots, but I’m always well impressed by those who do. It’s a bummer though when a looker of a game doesn’t have a way to really get up close and personal with its pretty cast and environments.

How Tales of Arise rose up for a new audience

Bandai Namco’s first Tales Of game, Tales Of Phantasia, weighed in at a previously unheard of 48MB when it released in 1995.

Later Tales games have had better success in the west – 2003’s Tales Of Symphonia was arguably its first breakout hit outside Japan – but the series as a whole has always seemed to exist…
