    If you know what you're doing, he's pretty easy to beat in NG+ his hardest battle is either tackling him with Crono solo or when you face him at the Ocean Palace where he kills Crono.

    As for Frotz, it's not so much a special scene, just some foreshadowing. You talk to his father in the shop, and you can meet his wife at the pier. It's just some little details I've always liked about the game.

    The question is, did you meet the wife and father before you rescued him?

    Stealthing is incredibly difficult, but pretty impressive if you can pull it off. Did you rescue the merchant's son while you were there?

    So how did you tackle the escape from the prison in 1000 A.D., did you stealth it, fight everyone, or waited the three days until Lucca rescued you?

    How did Crono's trial go for you?

    Thankfully CT is pretty short and getting most of the endings on a second playthrough is pretty easy. So...

    It was actually. I'm glad you enjoyed it, especially since it's hard for some people to play older entries and wonder what all the fuss was about. Are you going to check out Radical Dreamers and Chrono Cross now if you haven't already?

    If you like Tactical Turn based combat on a grid map, that deals with giant robots and realpolitik then certainly. Don't let the giant robot thing deter you either, the wanzers are simply tools and rarely the focus of the plot which is really more about the various nations all being cutthroat with each other. If you like Tactical RPGs, it's not a bad one to consider.

    Ys and Trails, as well as giving Tales of a second chance are all on my bucket lists as well. Still, I've got an itch for Front Mission at the moment, and I'm reminded that I never finished FM4, so I may start a new replay of that one.

    I'm still going back through Kingdom Hearts and Front Mission at the moment, but I may chime back in sooner or later.

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,
