A Year of One Hit Wonders - May - Rogue Galaxy
This month, we'll take a look at the broadest spanning game of the year: Rogue Galaxy. Produced by Level-5 and originally released in 2005, Rogue Galaxy follows the tale of a young man named Jaster Rogue (see what they did there?) as he is invited to become a space pirate and his adventures thereon. Instead of travelling to the different countries on a continent or planet like in many JRPGs, you can freely travel between worlds... which ends up being very similar, in all honesty. Combat is real time with no separate battle screen, ala FFXII among others. There is crafting, weapon synthesis, and a mostly optional side game. I'm a fan of Level-5's other work (they have been doing some really good stuff for the Nintendo e-shop lately) so I'm looking forward to getting into this one. Enjoy!
