  1. Can’t believe I got swindled by falcom with this one
    I loved Ys 1/2, oath, origins, and even 7 which I know is similar to 8 but man 8 just felt like shit with the lack of regions and towns
    Quests felt like chores more than from actual foreign people in distant lands
    The camera also made this feel less like Ys and more like an average late 2000s rpg

    • I admit I have not played the older ones but for an adventure RPG I loved the island setting and how it encourages you to explore.
      Hadn’t played a game like that before.

      • there was a period when I was first playing the game that I thought the island would be a small part of the game and you would escape and go back to adventuring. I was really sad when I hit the point where they build up the camp into something permanent and it dawned on me that the whole game was going to be set on the island but by the end I loved it.

  2. which Dana is best Dana and why is it Dana Forma de Naranja?
    because the veils that come down from her hips make it seem like she has thick thighs

    • The reason why blonde Dana has a better design is because her bottoms are smaller.
      I didn’t like how big they were on the other designs because it looks like a diaper.

  3. I didn’t care about the Ys series until I saw a video going over the entries and YS 8 popped up with Deadly Temptation here.

    In my mind I went "HOLY SHIT" because I haven’t heard a beat like that since the early 2000s era from MMOs like Ragnarok or any of those other anime net games that would only receive the bare minimum of English localization. It evokes an era of a bygone era so I’ll definitely get around the the series one day,

  4. I played ys origin but got filtered by the difficulty. how do the other games play? I know the first ones have that gay bump shit but what about the ones I see with multiple characters?

    • The latest ones are way easier in general thanks to how you can exploit the dodge/parry system and carry tons of healing items in combat, plus they have multiple difficulty levels that go all the way down to pretty much braindead. They can still be a challenge on the very highest levels, but you can make it as easy as you want too.

      • this. flash guard and flash move make the game considerably easier once you get the timing down but on higher difficulties it can still be very challenging. Doing an inferno run for that one difficulty achievement was pretty hard just because the enemies are so full of shit and cheap. You basically have to play every fight perfect, everything one or two shots you or you have to just be willing to spend a ton of healing items and pray to god you can get them off before the whole fight falls apart on you and you get murdered

    • because he gambled and it worked out. Now whenever he dies he gets to join his god waifu in heaven and clap her cheeks for all eternity, also I guess make sure the lacrimosa doesn’t come back.
