Y's Y's Y's - I have all sorts of Y's cds but the original soundtrack to Y's I & II remains my favorite. Y's III was quite good as well.

*psycho fan alert*

NO APOSTROPHE!!!!!!!!!!!

Y's = incorrect. It suggests you should pronounce like a plural of the letter "y". As in "Wise."

Ys = correct. Pronounce it as if you were saying "East," but drop the t.

Had to say it. Also, he's right about the music. It's freaking fantastic.

The least memorable Ys soundtrack probably goes to Ys V. Ys IV has good music, but it's RARE stuff. I and II has been reprinted in all shapes and sizes, and is a great buy. III recently had its music remade in "Oath in Felghana" -- awesome soundtrack. Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim is a completely different sound from a whole new era of Falcom...but personally, I liked it.

Finally, Ys Origin has a soundtrack coming out in late March..expect a review from us. :P

Other good Falcom albums? The arranged albums for the Legend of Heroes series is good, and they're still available. All the other good stuff is super-hard to get these days.


HA! Thanks for the correction, Ramza, although I've known the correct pronounciation for quite a long time. It's that dang apostrophe I forget to exclude.

As for Oath in Felghanas music. I actually prefer the original Ys III ST over Oaths. It's still great stuff, of course, but it sounds a bit overdone to me.

I always liked the music to the one Legend of Heroes game I had for the TGCD. Dragon Slayer? I thnk that was the name. I get confused over the names.

sorry about the thread derailing, but...

I actually kind of made a quickening work last night. I had Van, Balthier, and Basch in battle, all with one Quickening each. I started it up, then just hit the Triangle, Square, and X buttons. Seemed to work. A MAJOR problem that I see with using them is that you end up with ZERO MP. That sucks. I think I'd rather keep my MP.

To keep this journal-like, I DID beat another hunt last night. I think I'll do a few more before continuing on with the story.

Nan and I were off on Friday so we found the last theatre still playing Pans Labyrinth and went.
I enjoyed the movie, but it was not as good as the hype made it out to be.
I know they had to make her do it to enhance the movie, but the girl WOULD NOT have eaten the grapes! This continues to bother me.
I found it interesting how the Captain somehow became a supervillain, capable of withstanding numerous knife wounds and a large dose of sedatives. I pretty much knew the girl was going to die, but how sad was that ending? Even to the end, she was embroiled in her fantasy world.

This is a movie I look forward to seeing again at home. It was certainly well made and entertaining.

Also, I forgot to post that I saw Heavenly Creatures a few weeks ago. I really liked this movie. Kind of Similar to Pans in a way. Growing up and innocence lost. Well made movie.

Actually, I really don't like "Creative Cornucopia" It doesn't make sense. It would have to be "Cornucopia of Creativity". Are Cornucopias Creative? Then again, does the imagination need a sanctuary?
What the hell does it really matter? Why did I write this? I rarley go in that section anyway.
I vote for " The Imaginative Sanctuary for Creative Cornucopias!"

FFXII - Haste + Berserk = awesome!
Quite a bit of stuff going on. I played through the Stillshrine.
Beat the first boss pretty easily, but had a hell of a time with the Esper boss. It kept putting my characters to sleep! Add in all the minions and it took me forever to beat it. It came down to keeping everyone hasted and Balthier berserked. Then I went back to Mt. Bur and got in a fight with one of the Judges. He was pretty tough but I somehow managed to beat him. Now I'm supposed to go all the way to Archades

Instead of continuing with the story, I am going after some hunts.
All my characters are around lvl 29 right now.
I have no clue how to use Quickenings, so I never use them. What the hell are you supposed to do after initiating it? Anyone feel like enlightening an idiot?

Good job, CW, beating Garuda without the berries. I got my ass kicked the first time I fought it. BTW, I have no idea why that would be a spoiler.

FFXII - I am now in the Miriam(that the name?) Stillshrine, after some fancy sword. I wish I had Haste. Hopefully, it won't be too long before it finally makes an appearance.

I am at the point in my life where I barely have time to play an rpg once, let alone 2 or 3 times. There are far too many good games out there for me to play, than to go back and play something I've already been through. I miss enough good games as it is.
Anyone wanna spot me some cheese?

Most everything that needs to be said has already been covered, but I feel like chiming in anyway.
DR's got it right with the Castlevanias. Great tunes. Still havent played Curse yet, though. I need to pick that up.

Y's Y's Y's - I have all sorts of Y's cds but the original soundtrack to Y's I & II remains my favorite. Y's III was quite good as well.

I agree on FFXII. While the music doesn't outright offend me, it is certanly nothing memorable. My fav FF ST's were IV & VI.

The Chrono games have great music. I prefer Trigger over Cross.

I stopped playing Suiko V due to boredom. The music didn't do much for me either. I can't recall a single tune.

No one else ever brings it up, but I love the ST to Dungeon Explorer II for the TGCD. The game didn't do much for me, but I still listen to the music after all these years. Great stuff.
Same with Gates and Lords of Thunder, if rock is your thing.

There's been very little good music in games lately. My personals faves of tyhe last few years are Skies of Arcadia, Dark Cloud 2, and Okami.

Still reading the first Thomas Covenant book. I am about halfway through, and it HAS improved. It's starting to feel like a genuine fantasy book now. I Still cant stand how whiny Thomas is, though.

I don't really care about the subject at hand. I just wanted to commend you for your topic title. If only more people would come to such a conclusion, no matter how they got there.

I don't understand all the love for this series. I played through about half of the first game and had to stop. While the settings are great, that godawful judgement ring completely ruined the game for me. To leave everything up to chance button presses just completely turned me off. I can see using such a mechanism for bonus type stuff, but not for the whole game. UGH.

FFXII - Played through the Henne Mines and beat Tiamat last night. I expected Tiamat to kiick my ass all over the place, but I beat him/it pretty handily. Back into the jungle I go. Most of my characters are around lvl 25. I've put in about 45 hours.
2698  The Rest / General Discussions / 4# lanruoJ emaG on: February 06, 2007, 10:38:47 AM
FFXII - Finished the Tomb, went through a bunch of story stuff, and am now back in Rabanastre. I'm supposed to go find some people south of the Giza plains, but I want to do some hunts.
While I just got the Gigas esper, I wonder if I wlll ever use it. I haven't done anything with the quickenings yet. Not sure if I even understand how they work.
2699  The Rest / General Discussions / Non-RPG interest. on: February 06, 2007, 10:32:35 AM
I still primarily play rpgs like the FF games and such. I'm not sure why, as they take me forEVER to get through.
I really enjoy adventure games like the Zeldas, Okami, Dark Cloud 2, Metroid, etc.
Castlevania games have always been favorites. Too bad I don't own a DS or a PSP, though.
I like playing racing and puzzles games with my wife. I still bust out F-Zero for the occassional rush of adrenaline.
I like action games, but I mostly suck at them. I play stuff like God of War and Metal Gear on easy mode. Much more fun for me. I love Resident Evil 4, but it is too hard without an easy mode. I suck.

For starters, I don't have a PSP.
Second, I actually still have my TG CD, along with a copy of the japanese version of Rondo of Blood.
I also still have my copy of SOTN.
I am not going to buy a psp just for the 3d "enhanced" version of Rondo.
That being said, this IS great news for those who never got the chance to play it.
