    The quality ports and localizations were made by a quality company called XSEED. For YS VIII, Falcom went with NISA instead, apparently because they are so cheap.

    Well, you get what you pay for.

    You do not have to configure any controllers in Steam, nor do you have to use Big Picture mode.

    Hopefully Falcom walks away from this understanding that paying less for localization means that you get less from sales as well.

    NISA has been consistently proving that it's a joke so they should do that. At least folks like Atlus USA aren't gonna somehow make a game broken.

    This is even worse than when Ubi fucked up Tetris on PS4.

    I enjoyed Ark of Napishtim more. Still pretty good though.

    Oath, Origin and Ark are all really good. Such a shame they abandoned that particular style of gameplay, really.

    how is the keyboard and mouse support working on ys 8 pc port? do you need to use the vertical axis (like, for example as in Nier Automata), OR is the game playable with only a horizontal axis?

    does the horizontal axis automatically follow your movement or is it manual?

    For example, could I play this only using the keyboard?

    It's a no-brainer that a track with the name "Valestein" is good.

    Stay away for now, friend- Lots of people are having trouble with it. The port is a mess.

    I think you need mouse + keyboard. The camera is pretty unruly with the mouse, and it's annoying to hit the number keys above WASD to use special skills, but it is playable.

    Controller is way better though.

    I hadn't played any of these 'modern' party-based Ys, but I installed this today and what is this shit? When did Ys transition from a kickass action RPG to full weeabo garbage?

    Haven't encountered any graphical issues reported by other people so far (4k maxed, constant 60fps at 20% gpu utilization, it's a very light game, but why is the install 21gb? WTF)

    I did run into a weird audio glitch though - music was skipping ahead every few seconds. I had to disable the unused HDMI audio devices on my videocard to fix it. Never encountered this problem, very strange.

    Got bored with Ys 8 and started playing Ys 1.

    Game is simple but has real old school charm. And awesome music.

    ...aaaand done. What a short game.

    Pretty fun, although it's irritating to be max level before even entering the final dungeon. Also had shitty backtracking. I like though how you need to use the silver gear instead of the highest level equipment to beat the end boss. Tricky.

    Yeah, Ys I took me by surprise too. Really simple, but somehow really fun and charming.
