sorry for necropost but this game is wonderful. Downloaded it the other day. Hits the spot. Easy to pick up and play, fun battle system. Happy to get into some Ys; major Falcom fan in the making.

Started playing my first Ys -game; Memories of Celceta. Somehow segwayed into that from Trails of Cold Steel and high praise of Falcom from a few RPGFan podcasts.

Well, I love it; battle system is really fun. Also, music is great and seems to be a general theme with Falcom games.

Yeah, that story was Revolutionary Girl Utena levels of fucked up, from what I remember. It was great.

Asellus is the best out of the 7 IMO

I'm liking it, I reserve final judgment until the game is over hopefully though.

Oh, wow, I didn't last 10 hours with that game.

First up is Suikoden 4.
Why would you do that to yourself?  The first game in your backlog should not be one that is almost certainly going to put you off your backlog.

And nothing says saving the world like SCUBA gear and shorts so short they let your ass cheeks breathe.

*looks to own avatar* You were saying?

At any rate, I'm willing to hold judgment on XBC2's fashion until after we've seen the game's Citan/Jin/Dunban/Nagi/resident badass Iado Swordsman (although Citan wasn't so much a badass as an asshole).

Dark Savior - Got past the opening platformer bit at the start of the mines. It was a lot easier to get the timing right when I realized I could jump farther than I thought -- there's like this grid of boxes basically and you have to get to the end of them before this door shuts. You can jump far enough to land on ever other box. Anyway. Got a more chocolate and bottles.

So about that -- I remember reading in EGM that in the original version you were collecting cigarettes, booze, and probably girly mags instead of comics. I think the mild censorship in the US version fits the tone of the game more.

Planet Dob - Cleared the first Piece (pieces are basically just triangular blocks of the city you're in). To do this I had to complete some tile matching minigame which uh... led to the pink-suited police officer guy from into repaving the road so I could cross into the second piece. Didn't get all the bits in Piece 1, and I think if I had one complaint about this, it's that you can't backtrack (Also the tile matching thing had different difficulty settings and I wanna try it again on pro) :< Otherwise, everything about this game is just so deliriously cheerful and the music's great.

Solo Crisis - Quintent strategy RPG with some Populous elements. Sort of like the city mode from Actraiser developed into its own thing. From what I can tell, you build houses to generate magic for terrain deformation spells. The map has a light side and a dark side, and changes to the terrain on one side have the opposite effect on the other so like, you can build a mountain on the light side to create an ocean on the dark side and drown the dudes there. Sometimes defeating an enemy causes them to turn into a human and join you. Also the monsters initially speak in weird symbols but when you kill them the symbols get translated into, uh, actual words. This might only happen if the monster turns into a person?

Multiplayer RPGs / Re: MMORPGs are dead

My nephew just told me this morning that he and his brother are getting into The Old Republic. I don't know how long they'll stick with it, but if teenagers are still at least playing them some, MMOs must not be completely dead.

I'm not qualified to talk about them overall, though, because they've never been my genre. I'm pretty uneducated on the subject.
