    Yeah thanks, I need it. It's been a rough year for me so far in the personal sphere. I'll make it through though.

    That is interesting. Makes sense when I think about how Penelo, whom I kept as a pure mage, could take damage pretty well despite only having access to Mystic armor. The higher HP and buffed armor would certainly make her more tanky. It would be nice if SE could release a patch for the game to restore some of the old elements just to change up the difficulty.

    I tend to fall more in line with the usual popular classics like the NES Mega Man or Castlevania titles. Breath of Fire has always had pretty strong OSTs as well, if a bit unconventional for the genre. Again, that's Capcom and like Square, they have always had strong music for their games. Honestly, listening to some of Yoko Shimomoru's early works, especially on the original SFII OST is pretty sublime.

    I feel a lot of music back then gets a bit glossed over outside of a few standout tracks from popular titles. I feel the limitations of the tech meant the composers back then had to really work some magic to make something out of it.

    Yeah, that's definitely an improvement over a lot of the hardware at the time.

    It had a pretty snazzy audio come to think of it. I take it you've been playing some classic Ys?

    I understand all too well about distractions. I think the easiest thing to do is simply find the simplest and easiest thing you need to do and start there. Usually for me, I'll get on a roll of productivity if I start like that. Same with exercise. I also try to avoid certain websites nowadays that I know are pointless for me, or in cases like EoFF, I convince myself to only reply to interesting threads or comments and then check out for the day. Struggling with the last one, but I'm at least getting better about noticing when I linger on the forum despite a lack of activity.

    My blood pressure is fine, it was more a figure of speech. Though it does run in my family, so mine could be pretty high for my age and lifestyle.

    I might be able to relate to that, but I usually try to stay clear of things like that for the sake of my nerves and blood pressure. I'm sorry to hear you're frustrated.

    I'm doing okay, trying and losing a fight to stay on a schedule to be more productive. I keep piling on distractions. Have a minor vacation coming up, so I'm hoping a change of scenery and seeing some old college friends will improve my state of mind.

    How about you, other than the frustration part?

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

YS VIII: LACRIMOSA OF DANA

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)

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

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

YS ORIGIN

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)

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,
