  • Abstract:  During the late '90s, hundreds of thousands of gamers were turned into RPG enthusiasts. This was quickly evidenced by the enormous sales figures for the original Parasite Eve, among other RPGs that followed the release of Final Fantasy VII. At the time...

  • Abstract:  Explaining what the deal here is requires a history lesson. Ys and Ys II were developed for Japanese personal computers in 1987 or so, back before most anyone reading this was born. They were pretty big hits in Japan at the time and were ported all ov...

  • Abstract:  Sometimes it's hard to believe that at one time games were much simpler then they are today. In the RPG genre this is ever more abundantly noticeable. Today's RPGs are often times cinematic experiences with deep combat and more options than you know wh...

  • Abstract:  On the heels of a well-received Ys VII, Falcom has decided to repackage and update a previous re-release of the original two games in the Ys series, based loosely on Breton myth. Since Ys II is a direct sequel to the original game, literally picking up...

  • Ys I & II Chronicles is a nice revamp of the first two Ys games onto the PSP. It has a new localization of the dialogue and some great audio and visual options, and if you’re getting the disc version you get the soundtrack as well, which is a nice bon...

  • Ys I & II Chronicles on the PSP is a 20-year-old game design with a 10-year-old coat of paint on it, finished off with the gloss of an all-new soundtrack. Only consider it if you know you're in the mood for an intentionally obtuse, old-school journey t...

  • Without a doubt the Ys series has an interesting release history, one nearly as convoluted as Final Fantasy; untangling the series releases is a task in itself, partly due to the many Japan-exclusive entries. However, we are slowly starting to see some hi...
