    Can't wait to see Old Adol. Although, the most I'm betting on is him getting a square chin.

    Reads really cool. I'm really curious about the story, though. The premise is interesting and Falcon gets praised for the yarns in the Trails -series, so why not up it up with Ys too (haven't played Memories, but I found the one in Oath and Dana quite good and really good in Origins. And what I read about VII seems promising. So, there is hope)?

    Really? Hrm. But I got a chance to play Ys VIII and I enjoyed the story enough. Not perfect, but it had a good build-up and even was okay with the ending, after thinking a bit about it. So if they keep that niveau we may get something good? One can hope. At least the gameplay should be fun.

    Trails writing brought about Sara and Olivier, it doesn't get any better than that.

    I am a trails fan plating Ys for the first time (except this one i played in highschool but forgot about)

    playing origins, i enjoy it so far. The dungeon is tight, the combat, while not pretty deep, flow pretty well and you can pull some nice moves.

    The story surprises me, people said Ys story are usually pretty flat, but at rhe very least i am intrigued by the central mystery.

    It is not as detailed or expansive or well written as trails, but still compelling all the same. The dungeoneering and stuff remind me of trails in the sky 3.

    If it has Valestein in the title then you know it's got to be good.

    That's the greatest strength of Ys-Stories. There characters may be just solid, but the worldbuilding and the build-up to the mystery is always excellent. They did the environmental storytelling stuff, before Dark Souls put in the public eye ... just not as cryptic as those :D.

    finished oath of felghana. damn that final boss is tough.

    pretty good game tho.

    i also like the suble connection with the previous titles
    Show Spoiler
    how the final boss talk about the winged people, basically the godesses from Ys origin and Ys 1/2 and he also talks about the black ark / black pearl from ys origins.

    AKTCHUALLY, the black ark is most likely the Ark of Napishtim.
    Glad you enjoyed it, Felghana was tons of fun
