Like Kim said, this game very much evokes childhood nostalgia. It's unfortunate that our adult sensibilities can lead us to associate animal characters with the dark side of the furry fandom, because this game quite obviously has nothing to do with sex. To me the game feels like a lighthearted Cowboy Bebop mixed with Samurai Pizza Cats. Besides, floating islands! Baten Kaitos and Skies of Arcadia, eat your hearts out.

I can't live without Adol X Dogi anything.

It was nice to see some videos of these, and I appreciate that the representative actually knew what he was talking about. Most game news sites seemed to gloss over the Ys titles at E3.

I officially need a Shimama. I intend to ride it across Isshu, doling out electric fury to all who impede my noble steed's path.

I ended up buying the digital version too, because I couldn't find it in any stores. I dislike the idea of not having a physical copy, but I'd rather have the game digitally than not at all.

Aside from that, I've enjoyed the game thus far, and I'm in Chapter 6 of Levant's Tale. My opinion of it wavered a little at points, because I felt like the game was rushing ahead without building any backstory, but some of it came later and I was satisfied.
Code:
I still wish there was more of a backstory on each of the Hexyz and how they came to possess their Ragnafacts. "I was guided by a voice in the castle until I suddenly found myself holding this sword." Really? That's all the explanation I get?

As a huuuuuge fan of Lufia, particularly the second game, I was tremendously excited when this remake was announced last year. I've been crossing my fingers ever since for a US release, and it looks like Natsume is making those dreams come true.

This news couldn't have come at a better time for me, either. I almost bought a Japanese copy from eBay yesterday. Haha.

A few days ago, I found a nearly flawless copy of Arc the Lad Collection, complete with sealed standees, analog stick covers, manual, etc. I... had trouble suppressing my enthusiasm. It was $60, but I had about $50 in store credit, so it wasn't too bad.

I've also had a number of amazing finds at the same local used game store, including Dragon Warrior VII, Breath of Fire IV, Saga Frontier 2, and Suikoden III/V. Most of them were pricier than I would've liked, but they're all in great condition and it feels awesome to have them in my collection again.

Haha, I love the name "Piglit". Somebody also suggested that it should evolve into "Pyroink", which I also love.

I'm probably still gonna go with Smugleaf, though. Unless his evolutions are hideous.

It saddens me that everyone is crapping on the Water Starter, I love him! I'll be picking him as my starter because he looks cool to me and I always pick the Water Starters on my first playthrough of any pokemon game.



Personally, I think it's adorable.

Go, Klonoamon!



...that reminds me, I never did play the Wii remake of Klonoa.

Back on topic! I'm totally going with the Tsutaja. He has my favorite design since Cyndaquil.

Color me absolutely friggin' stoked. My experience with Ys is mostly limited to Ark of Napishtim. I played through some of Ys III on the SNES when I was a lot younger, but I don't remember much of it. I also own Ys I&II for the DS, but I haven't played much of it. :/ Shame.

As for the Sora no Kiseki trilogy, I've heard nothing but amazing things about it. I'd been hoping they'd localize it. :D

I like my RPGs mostly linear, but I also love sidequests. I prefer when they open up towards the end of the game, but I'm also fine with them being available anytime, as long as there exists a fairly clear indication of when a quest is going to become permanently unavailable. ("It looks like we won't be able to return to Ruin City for quite a while... are you sure you're ready to leave, HeroGuy?") I absolutely detest it when I discover I've missed an important item or quest that I can no longer complete because of where I am in the game.

I'm probably also weird, because I find open-world games like Fallout/Oblivion/Mass Effect to be more stressful than enjoyable, with the exception of MMOs. I guess I just miss the typical structure of SNES/PSX-era RPGs.
