    Limitations force people to think and make tough choices which is why I stuck to it. Besides any higher and people would probably only skim responses at best.

    That's cool. I usually wait awhile before tackling the extra endings anyway to avoid fatigue as well.

    I've been spending most of my time trying to come up with my OST list for the 10 best VGM thread. Lot of great music over the years.

    Good to learn I'm not crazy.

    How's the Chrono NG+ going?

    How many games are in the Ys series by this point? I mean, I'm pretty sure it was around when I was a kid and that was some time ago.

    Honestly, DS has a pretty rocking OST. Maybe not anime stylish but still stylish. Course I'm really bias with gothic style music and choral chanting. Course there are some Souls fans who feel it would be cool to be a bit more like anime.

    I'm going to do a much longer entry for the next Let's Play. Try to get up to the second world and move this along a bit faster. Mostly, I'm replaying for the retrospective article. I kind of want to get to VII before the remake hits.

    Yeah, mostly retro gaming, though FFV is both for the Let's Play, and I finally started the retrospective article on it.

    I believe so. Its been ages since I played the updated version of the game. I'm pretty old school with CT and usually play it on my SNES. The secret boss ties into Chrono Cross btw.

    If you're looking for exhilarating action, perhaps you should give Dark Souls a try?

    I'm bouncing back between KH: Birth by Sleep, FFV, and Suikoden 1, with a possible attempt at finishing Tactics Ogre on the PSP as well.

    I believe it's just the shell, but he does put you in a bad spot cause I don't think you get the save point when you enter him, and your party will be quite battered after the shell. His "Destruction Rains from the Heavens" attack will knock like 2/3rds of your health from a party with max health.

    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.

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,
