JuMeSynJuMeSyn Code: KirinAdministrators
edited December 2010 in Latest Updates
Today we're flying through the skies in ships powered by moon stones, fighting with and alongside the other denizens of the airways, and competing with the nefarious grip of an evil empire. Relive the Dreamcast's star RPG with us.
You want your Skies of Arcadia, people.
It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    Rats, I kept putting off recording that "review." I know I can send it in for the next episode, but it just seems kind of silly to have it be on an unrelated episode. . .

    I most certainly have to agree with you all about the charm of Skies of Arcadia. While the copy of SoA Legends I had was apparently buggy or something (it sometimes took a long time to load scenes or battles, and I would on multiple occasions get a "An error has occurred" message. This prompted me to save often), I absolutely loved the game, despite its archetypal nature. Actually, seeing as I hadn't played very many RPGs at the time I first played this game (Mainly Pok

    It's a shame Mike didn't finish the postgame dungeons in Chrono Trigger DS, as they were better than the other extras.

    Instead of fetch quests they were simple dungeon (with the odd puzzle). Although unfortunately with a mix of old areas reused, as well as the new ones.
    If you have played FFIV Advanced's post-game Lunar Ruins you will have a good idea, except better from being much shorter. (As if it stopped after completed Yang's trial.)

    If I were to play through again then I would happily redo this extra, but would skip the arena and fetch-quest village ones.

    I loved what I played of Skies of Arcadia, but regrettably never finished it. That was back before I realised that taking a break from a game, meant that I wouldn't find the time to finish it later.
    Before that Gamecube era I used to have more time than I would (good) games, so always used to go back to favourites as I desired.

    But on to other things:
    - I still normally think of Fina when I say "Thank you very much".
    - I beat those 4 big ship battle monster straight away, so was pretty annoyed to find out about the extra items with a crew member which I hadn't gotten yet.
    - The base was pretty cool, but I can't remember how I had mine set up now either.
    - That lollipop boomerang was amazing. ;)
