Why the f*** would a guy cross-dress as a girl!?


Fetish reasons. They lost a bet. Or they just want to.
I think Bridget's story is that twins of certain gender combinations (can't remember if it was same gender or opposite gender, and I'm too lazy to hit up google) are considered bad luck in his home village, so he was raised/dressed as a girl. He's on a quest to become more manly, but doesn't seem to realize the first step might be to take off the nun cosplay.

It's been a long time since I played GG, but that was a big WTF moment for a middle schooler.

Wind Waker is one of the greatest games ever made. Hoping the HD Remake does it justice.

Please OH GOD PLEASE tell me that was a girl!!!


nope bridget is a dude


Why the f*** would a guy cross-dress as a girl!?

story from guilty gear he was raised as a female so he's pretty much used to dressing like a female.
honestly trap characters make a game interesting, cause it's not like "guy likes girl end of story" which by this point has been done a million times.

I'm not gonna lie that one was shocking to me too.

Even more weird is how Jade looks like a female character in his default outfit (as well as during the spa scene). It's just that his voice and the actual artwork for him save him.

BTW nothing can be as bad as the aforementioned Bridget and Teddie's Alice Costume in P4.

I love how people insult the voice acting in the game. It might not be on par with games like Mass Effect, but Abyss has better voice acting than any Tales game out there. And the characters are just absolutely fantastic.


I disagree. Vesperia is better.


^ 100X better

Love Abyss since PS2, but it is by far not the best Tales game in any genre.

That prize is Vesperia. Which is exactly regarded higher than a normal Tales game since it's that good.
