I'm definitely interested in Ys Origin. Anyone out there play it before? Thoughts?

Ys: OiF was the last review I ever wrote for RPGFan.  Funny how it about half a decade for the PC version to finally arrive.  Better late than never!

And you also get the... well, not SEQUEL, but next game using that gameplay!

Now they just need to get Trails in the Sky on. If all of those can do well then I can take comfort in that the Second Chapter can actually get here in some form.

EDIT: Come to think of it, Ys Origin bodes well for non-PSP games. Maybe we'll be seeing Xanadu Next and Dinosaur Resurrrection too, it'd be great if this actually opened the flood gates for Falcom PC titles, or at least those that have a fan translation to buy/license.

I could see a PSP/PC simultaneous release. Though I guess if they went PC for that it'd have to be sold through online channels anyway, though it would be awesome if they could get a limited, classic PC-style release for it.

Shame they weren't able to release Origin on... Origin.
[dead air]


I have Felghana PSP, but I'll definitely get Origin. Glad I didn't get the fan translated version(at least I think it had one?).

This seems like a really strange match.

From what I can gather, most Steam users don't give a crap about JRPGs, and probably have never heard of this.

It just seems like a pointless market to break into.

I think that depends on Falcom more than XSEED.  If you'll remember, XSEED has no programmers, they simply send the text to the programmers at Falcom.

Either way, this is excellent news.  The more people who can play these titles the better.  I hear the PC versions are the best, as well.

Cthulhu Saves the World, Fortune Summoners, Recettear, etc. have done very well on Steam.

If I had the gif of Adam Jensen punching the break dancer this would've been a great time to post it. Seriously, with how well those did and how many have wanted Falcom games on Steam (and have been pointing out it's the safest way to get all of Trails in the Sky) it's ignorant to say something like that, especially in the thread highlighting people give a shit.

I wasn't speaking about this thread specifically, obviously the forum users here are different.

I mean do Half Life and Team Fortress users really care about JRPGs?

There is definitely a market for Japanese/doujin games on Steam, as evidenced by Recettear's success and such.

As I understand it, Valve are the biggest obstacle. They don't think there's a market.

We need to prove them wrong.

I wasn't aware that all steam users were simply shooter fans.  Considering it is, by far, the most popular distribution service for PC games (arguably more than brick and mortar stores at this point), it's kind of silly to try and pidgeonhole its users, especially when there are examples of very popular Japanese (or Japanese-styled) games on the service.
