ARGH EXTRANEOUS APOSTROPHES ARRRRGH

But to address your question, I think there have only been compilations of Ys I+II. Bunches of those. XSEED has put them on sale quite often recently, though. Not hard to get the ones they've put out.

Six months ago, I owned zero Ys games and hadn't played any of them seriously.  Now I own eight Ys games and have beaten four of them.  New obsession for the latter half of 2013 (first half of 2013 it was Persona 4).  

So I've beaten Ys I, Ys II, and The Oath in Felghana on Steam, plus sunk roughly a dozen hours into Ys vs Sora no Kiseki: Alternative Saga.  I own Ys Origin, Ys Seven, Ys: The Ark of Napishtim (PS2), and Ys: Memories of Celceta.  I don't own a Vita, so Celceta will have to wait, but I want to start on either Origin, Seven, or Napishtim soon.  Which do you suggest?  

Left field recommendation: If you liked Ys 1 and 2, and want to see what Celceta's origins were, Dawn of Ys is great, and also tends to be ridiculously cheap for a PC Engine game (12-15 dollar range).
Thanks, but no thanks.  I don't own one, and haven't explored PCE/TGX emulation before.  But more on point, I'd rather play the games I already own first.  I'll consider emulating after I've beaten those first three. 

I was shocked to find an English version of this in Seoul last weekend.

I was seriously tempted, but it's hard to justify getting a Vita for just one game.
I think in mid or late 2014 I'm going to get a Vita for... like four games.  Including Celceta.

That was one thing I thought was strong about the Dragon Age games.  Magic is given context and is key to the story, as well as being something equally useful and dangerous / risky.  Dragon Age III is probably going to have the legal vs. illegal use of magic as a key plot point. 

The Tales series, on the other hand... hasn't been very thorough about its magic systems since... Phantasia.  Maybe ever?

Actually getting a Vita, then playing Ys: Memories of Celceta, Persona 4: Golden, Gravity Rush, and Virtue's Last Reward.  I'm getting a Vita in 2014.  Already saving up for it. 
Whatever Persona **** that we get in North America.  Although that's almost certainly 2015. 
Dragon Age: Inquisition
Transistor
Child of Light
Cosmic Space Heroine
Project Eternity
Massive Chalice
Bravely Default (though I lack a 3DS....)
inFamous: Second Son (though I lack a PS4....)

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky: Second Chapter

Okay, don't think I can make it this week either.  I'll be out of town until Sunday afternoon and don't want to try on my phone's IRC app.

Well, I bought the Silver Edition.  And I don't have a Vita.  But I have a CD player! 

(this Ys music collection is pretty baller, guys)

I would stay away from a list of "best stories in an RPG" because that is SO subjective.  Nobody could agree on anything.  It would only invite controversy.  The thread for that article would break 100 pages in 90 days. 

...You should start on the article tomorrow.

I tried Wanderers from Ys YEARS ago on the SNES and thought it was terrible.  Earlier this year I started Oath in Felghana and really liked it, so much so that I bought Ys Seven and Ys Origin.  I (barely) started those but liked them as well.  I *finally* finished Oath in Felghana this weekend, and I'm around the middle of the Chronicles+ version of Ys I.  I've also put about 12-15 hours into Ys vs. Sora no Kiseki: Alternative Saga. 

Question: does character appearance or displayed weapon change at all in Ys Seven or Memories of Celceta?  I really liked completing item sets in Felghana and getting the new looks for Adol.  Anything like that in the two most recent games? 

In Ys Seven he does not change appearance except for one scene in an arena fight, but other than that he has the same skin the entire game. His shield and sword change but not the armor. Im not too sure about MoC because I try to avoid reading too much into the games I am anticipating.
OK, that's good.  I like seeing weapons change cosmetically.  I think I got used to that somewhere in between Final Fantasy VII and Dragon Quest VIII and now judge when an RPG doesn't do that.

Oh please.  The spinoff **** is silly, but that kind of expansion is to be expected with something that's been as successful as Persona 4.  But I guess I don't take the creative decisions of game developers personally.  Whatever.  I'm looking forward to hearing more about Persona 5.  Not interested in Persona Q or Dancing All Night.  Probably will get the P4A sequel because I liked the first game quite a bit.

I reserved the special edition yesterday.  I'm not getting a Vita until next year.  This is an "investment" for a game I'll eventually play.  I have a problem. 

...six months ago, I owned zero Ys games.  In a few days I will buy my eighth.  Yup, new obsession. 
268  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: November 24, 2013, 08:26:13 AM
I'm not surprised that Persona 5 is PS3-only; Persona 4 was PS2-only in 2008.  I would be equally unsurprised if it received a PS4 and/or Vita remake a year or two after its initial release. 

And I'm... weirdly relieved by this news.  I was worried that A) there would be no Persona 5 or B) that Persona 5 would be yet another Persona 4 game.  Instead, we get a bunch of spinoffs AND a legit Persona 5 announcement.  I'm glad it worked out this way.

It's probably not counted as an RPG for the purpose of this site, but Advance Wars: Dual Strike is waaaay better than Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.  Use that game for your DS strategy fix.
270  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: November 22, 2013, 05:31:52 PM
Leslie Ann Warren has the right of it.  I really really hope this is a new Persona with a new cast, but I'm starting to worry as well....
