    Austrian! Curse you and your curvy streets :v Anytime me and my family went on vacation to Italy, we had to drive real slow so we wouldn't get sick.

    That and learning not to be greedy with attacking which is the usual learning curve with bosses in these games.

    Looks pretty intense. Reminds me a bit of the final boss fight in Star Ocean 2 when you remove the final boss limiter and he suddenly becomes the strongest enemy in the entire game with an opening move almost guaranteed to wipe out your whole party.

    Speaking of challenging boss fights.

    Good thing it's been so long since I last watched the anime. I barely remember anything anymore. Except for how confused I was that Rika and I think another character from Higurashi seemed to appear in Umineko, too, but as somewhat different characters. o_O *still confused by that* On a different note, do you happen to be german as well?

    Finde ich schon. Hast schon das Recht das zu schreiben, was du schreibst, bzw. geschrieben hast. Und es war nicht ungerechtfertigt.

    Yeah, despite sucking at melee combat, I had more fun with 9S actually due to the variety of hacking missions with him. Course its Route C and D where everything really goes crazy.

    Interested, just not a high priority. I've got to be in the mood for it kind of deal but I won't turn it away if it pops up somewhere. Honestly, the bullet hell sections in Nier Automata saved Route B for me. I hacked everything because it was more fun and interesting than the simple combat.

    Just the old school arcade stuff from way back in the day. They would hardly be called bullet hell titles these days but top-down shooter just seems like a lazy definition. So not really outside of some of the stuff from Nier Automata.

    She's a bit like a female Yasunori Mitsuda imho. So I wasn't really bothered when she took over composing duties for Xenosaga since I felt she would have been the best replacement. Yoko Kanno is still my favorite Japanese composer, though she doesn't do video game music much anymore.

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,
