Let’s Fail at Ys Origin: 30 Minutes of Gameplay Nihon Falcom’s ARPG

The first 30 minutes of Nihon Falcom's ARPG, Ys Origin, with Nan Rymer from RantGaming. In this Let's Fail, she covers basic movement, story, and for some reason, Lunar: The Silver Star. She also can't make simple jumps to save her life, but at least the game music is great, no?

Click through for the accompanying review as well. (PC, Ys Origin)

This game was so fantastic... Definitely one of the best RPGs in recent memory. Despite the fact it came out in 2005 (maybe 2006?) not sure there.

Ya, it came out in 2006 in Japan, and is pretty much everything good about the Ys series. It might look dated to some folks, but it's so much fun. And the boss fights (I know it looks like I couldn't even make it past the first jump let alone, a boss) are pretty creative too.

Like I said, the games is up for cheap on Steam a lot, and there's also a demo to try. Really worth it if you're looking for a walk down memory lane. (That and really, it's a timelessly fun game.)

Agreed, I've played most of the Ys games, and this certainly is (in my opinion) the best of the series.

No sweat on jumping though, to be honest it took me a while to get the hang of it as well. I was falling all over the place in the first hour or two of play. This is my favorite, followed by Ys Seven, and Oath after that. Great series though, I haven't been let down by an Ys game yet.

Whatever happened with Falcom bringing over more PC games to Steam? Are they still doing that? I'd have thought Origins and Oath would have sold well enough to encourage further releases.

Maybe I'm just too impatient? I really want to see more Ys, and other Falcom franchises. Don't they have some of the more Legend of Heroes games on PC? With those games, at least, they could probably do something like what Overhaul Games did with Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and use community volunteers to help with the localization/translation process to save money.

I think you might be better off throwing your hopes at XSEED, the guys who did the localization/publishing of the game in the West. I was going through their FB page and check this out about Legend of Heroes. Someone asked (on Nov 30) if they had any plans on bringing the trilogy over to the US:

"That's a question that we've been looking for the answer to for over a year now. We haven't given up yet though..."
