Episode 25 - Ys: Books I & II

12May

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Floyd (Fleach), Steven (Disposed Hero), and special guest, long-time member and RF Gen contributor, Addicted, as we discuss our April playthrough of Ys Books I & II.  In this episode, we discuss the various versions of the games we played, the story, music, and the peculiar gameplay "bump" mechanic that makes Ys stand out among its contemporary RPGs. If you played Ys Books I & II with us last month, or are thinking of getting started on this classic series, this podcast will be a welcomed listen. As always, we are always happy to hear your thoughts on these games and our podcast on our discussion page (linked below) and are always happy to respond to and discuss the game more. So, how do these games match up to their contemporaries?  Are the Ys games RPGs or do they take more from the classic action/adventure games of their time?  And, what memory did one host "make" while finishing Book I? You can get the answers to these questions and more by listening to this month's podcast this month!  

We hope you enjoy our show, and please join our discussion on the thread linked below.  Also, be sure to rate and write a review of the show on iTunes to help us increase our listenership. Thanks for the listen!
