    Oh hey, I happened to see your post in the fourth wall thread just now. Is Umineko's VN easier to follow than the anime? I watched it a few years ago since I loved Higurashi (both the anime and the VN) but I found it really confusing.

    Foolish and a bit too outspoken is probably more like it...

    Hauptsächlich vol. 4.
    G.U. auf der PS2 ist da auch ein Schwergewicht, weil es die bei uns ja nicht gibt. Aber ich würde sie (1-4) dir ja nicht schenken. Nur solange herleihen, wie du sie brauchst und den Versand würde ich eben auch zahlen. Ich habe schon öfters Sachen verschickt wenn jemand etwas ausprobieren oder auch durchspielen wollte.

    .hack Liminality wäre auch dabei.

    Durch die Zusammenfassung in Last Recode, nehme ich an?

    Hättest du eine P.O. Box würde ich dir die vier schicken, frei Haus.

    Not bad, you can tell the composer was trying to replicate the style of music Yuki Kaijura did for the Signs TV series. Yes, I enjoy this type of music. Here's one back at you since I mentioned Kajiura.

    Sounds like you have a pretty big wish list yourself there.

    Yeah, I actually enjoy playing 9old school games for that reason to be honest. You have to be a bit more on top of things instead of flying by the seat of your pants.

    Papers Please is a little stressful but still really fun. I have a soft spot for Cold War era style films and media so the game is scratching an itch I didn't realize I had since MGS3.

    For SMT, I still need to tackle Digital Devil Saga 2, Devil Summoner Raidou 2, Persona Q, and SMTIV:Apocalypse. I need to finish Soul Hackers and the first Raidou Devil Summoner game, as well as SMT 1 where I'm on the last quest before the final dungeon which I am not looking forward to because that place is a labyrinth and I'm on the Neutral route meaning I have to explore all of it.

    Which ones do you still need to finish/play?

    Wenn ich das richtig verstanden habe, gefällt dir Chrono Trigger ganz gut?

    I feel Sakaguchi's greatest contribution to the games he works on is adding a real sense of charm and humor to his titles. I feel you can always tell which entries he personally had a hand in cause they tend to have more humorous moments or characters. Characters like Edge, Sabin, Yuffie, and Quina can all easily be stereotyped as comic relief characters when you think about it. He likes womanizers and old guys too, so they tend to pop up more often as well.

    Glad yo hear you're still churning along with .Hack//G.U. I still need to play through it properly.

    Papers Please doesn't have a whole lot going for it graphically, so I can see how screenshots don;t really do justice to it. Its really more about dealing with the moral dilemma of helping strangers who have it much worse than you, or simply sticking to protocol no matter how heartless in order to protect your family. The game is pretty challenging though as you really need to have both a good eye for detail and the ability to process information quickly. I'm a little too slow at the moment so I never get as much done in the time frame as a I would like and I ended up with the ending where I went into debt and had to go to prison.

    I have Odin Sphere, but it is unfortunately in my PS2 backlog hell along with a Lupin III game, a few SMT games, Metal Saga, and Yakuza. I meant to play it awhile back but got caught up with new shiny objects instead, which is my usual problem. I just picked up Tactics Ogre again since I'm practically at the game's end.

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

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

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 10:03 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,
