Wild Arms 2 will always hold a special place in my heart. I was going through a very hard time in my life back then and the game helped me overcome that crisis. However I don't think I could play it with the same enthusiam anymore, some puzzles were downright awful.
But seriously how awesome were those opening movies, especially the parts with the trumpet playing?
I entered the series with 2nd Ignition and fullheartedly agree that trumpet opening was incredibly awesome, as it was memorable. The music and game itself hooked me something fierce, and I was entertained that the way your game sessions are treated is like an anime:
Start/load game: Anime opening
Play X amount of time: Episode length
End game after save: Ending theme.
Wild Arms 3rd Advance did the same deal, but included vocals into the intro/outro sessions. I adore the outro so much because of the singer's tender, soothing voice. What's even more sweet is that it's a lullaby
. Only the Night Sky Knows
Lyrics: I can still recall the smell of smoke from rusting guns
Lying here beneath the starry desert sky
Tired from the fight, I fall into a slumber
'With the memories of days gone by
What was the name I called out in my dream
Guess for now only heaven knows...
Very, very pretty song.
Wild Arms 4? Enjoyed it very much. You know what, this is frustrating, I can't find a decent walkthrough/let's play of this game...It's definitely worth running through and recording, some of the dialog is interesting--at times Wakkie Nu Nu
Also, Dean is a moron. He is on the same plane of Moron as Justin from Grandia
