    You do that

    From what I remember, only one ending is necessary to get the true ending, and it's neither of those two.

    Are you using a guide or are you just trying to get all of the endings without one?

    I'll be making a top 10 - bottom 5 FF soon, so you'll know I'm also done with my number q favorite game (finally!), which I'll post on the evening.

    My biggest gripe with X is because I really don't think it deserves all the praise it gets, while many games that I consider better, even within the series, get overlooked. It's still not a bad game. Just not for me.

    I hope you don't really think any less of me for disliking FFX

    You can give spoilers if you want. I always put a spoilers tag in the topic title when a review has some so it's nobody's fault but their own if they get spoiled.

    How about June 3rd, then? If yes do you think you can have your half ready by at least June 2nd? I usually like to have everything a day before the review so I have time to proofread. Are we agreed on the categories? Gameplay, story, characters? Anything else you think should be touched on? Been a while since I played it. I also usually like closing statements. Oh, and did you want to introduce yourself or do you prefer I introduce you?

    I also just realized I haven't reviewed a handheld game since September 30, 2013. This is looooong overdue.

    I'd like to do it in June if possible. Which week would be more suited to your schedule?

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a crossover review with me? Might be a little tricky to pull off in text form, but I was thinking we could decide what to focus the review on and separate them by category. Like gameplay, story, characters, etc. and then each write our piece and share it with the other and I'll edit it all. Since you mainly deal with visual novels and I reviewed the first Phoenix Wright game I was thinking maybe we could review Justice for All together?

    Let me know what you think. Naturally, you'll be credited and I'll link to your stuff at the bottom of the review if you agree to do this. I think it could prove an interesting experiment.

A Modern Guide to Ys - Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA

by Karifean on 01-12-2020 at 01:17 AM


If it's not clear by now, I adore the Ys series. I love how purely fun these games are, I love the simple sense of adventure, and the sense of genuine mystique from uncovering the lore of ancient places of legend. I love the way Falcom humanizes their characters and really makes them feel 'real' in a way other studios' JRPGs struggle to match. And whatever I may have said about Celceta it still is a game that has a lot of that.

A Modern Guide to Ys - Ys: Memories of Celceta (Ys IV)

Time for a quick history lesson! Ys IV's history is a strange one indeed. Back around its initial release there were actually two games that were Ys IV, there was "Ys IV: Dawn of Ys" by Hudson Soft on the PC Engine (TurboGrafx-16) CD-ROM, and then there was "Ys IV: Mask of the Sun" by Tonkin House on the SNES. How did that happen? Well Falcom were in a bit of a situation at

A Modern Guide to Ys - Ys Seven

Heading into the final era of Ys games and in the series' timeline the chronologically last of the localized games so far we have Ys Seven. Released for the PSP in late 2009 and ported to the PC years later, this game marks a heavy departure from earlier titles in the series in terms of graphics, gameplay and storytelling alike. The shift was met with mixed reception, but given all that came out of it, I couldn't be

A Modern Guide to Ys - Ys Origin

by Karifean on 12-31-2019 at 11:03 PM


Now for perhaps one of the best-known games in the series, Ys Origin has gained quite a bit of notoriety especially on Steam, probably mainly because its Steam trailer is super hype. Does it deserve it? Well, to put it very simply... hell yeah it does.

As mentioned already, in Ys Origin you do not play as Adol. That's because this game is a prequel to the Ys I & II duology,

A Modern Guide to Ys - Ys: The Oath in Felghana (Ys III)

The third Ys game was known in the SNES era as "Wanderers of Ys", and was the game to introduce a lot of the western world to the series. Its reputation overall has been mixed, being a sort of "Zelda II: The Adventure of Link" of the Ys series, ditching the overhead view for a sidescrolling adventure and as already implied not really being about the land of Ys at all anymore,
