I don't like the game much, but the music kickass!

And sorry for my terrible engrish, i hope my comments don't seem rude or something. :)


No problem at all! :D
I'll definitely still play it, it'll just be lower priority for now. Thanks for your input!


For a random battle? Yeah, that's pretty awesome. Back when I was still in a band, we did a heavy metal instrumental version of "Fight On!", the boss battle theme from VII. I think that the theme you sent me would have been much better though.

Yeah it is one of my favourites, to be honest the music outlive every aspect of the game in my opinion :)

Agreed, music is very important in a game!

I was actually gonna research the Ys series next. I currently don't have any of the games and don't have any in the "to buy" list.

Any one in particular you recommend?


Start with one of the Ys Book I & II compilations.

As far as I'm concerned the Turbo CD package is the "definitive" version, but you can't go wrong with the PSP or DS ports either.

As always :) I come recommending DQV & Phantasy Star IV!

I've never played the JPN PS2 DQ remakes but hear good things.

All the more reason I should get a Genesis next! I have PSIV on Steam but I know I'm not gonna enjoy that.. at this point, I don't even know why I bought the Genesis/MD classics there. :lol:

The only versions I have of DQV are the SFC and JP PS2 remake versions. I have the English patch for the PS2 version, but honestly have/had no intention of playing it... I guess I'd rather play it on SNES!
I was going to do a search about this, but I figure I'll just ask you now while I have ya. How were you able to play DQV? With it being in Japanese and all. I know there are English ROMs, repro carts, and yeah an English patch for the PS2 version as I mentioned. But I noticed that the guy I bought it from had some saves on there. (I'm assuming, of course, he doesn't read/speak Japanese :D) So yeah, how were you able to play it?

I bought the three DQ ports (updated graphics but still 2D & 16 bit inspired) new a few years back b4 the prices jumped.

We finally got V & VI in English... 15 years later :)

DQV takes places over a large time span, you see your character grow from a boy to a man, get to make life decisions (impacting story lines)... and there is the monster catching (years before Pokemon). I was really surprised at how addicted I got to this.

You can recruit monsters to join your party & switch them out with team members. Comes in VERY handy for tough bosses (ie, recruit a water based monster to fight the boss with fire attacks).

PSIV has such a cool art style. Classic. Get a Genesis!!! I'm a huge Sega fan but actually beat this one for the first time on the PS2 Sega collection. There's some pretty surprising plot twist for a 20 year old RPG.

Yeah, that's one of the things that particularly interests me about DQV, the idea of it being an "epic". I didn't know that about recruiting monsters, though.. that sounds pleasantly complicated.

haha yeah, I need to get a Genesis. It's definitely the next console on my list. I actually also had PSIV on PS3 as Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection with the intention of playing it there, but after finding my childhood Genesis controllers, I knew I "had to" play it on Genesis.

Awesome, thanks for the suggestions man!
