Y'all might know this breed of threads at other gaming forums as "Currently Playing/Daily Check" Threads. Post whatever you played for the day, or big accomplishments, brag about getting your new game or tell how great that underrated game you tried was.

I haven't been doing much gaming the past month because I have been a bit busy. However the other day I spent some time playing Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu for TG16 and had a fun time making it all the way to that last level.

Adding PCE console specific layer on top of that, makes for an interesting challenge (no, not a reference to Ys II).

I've been trying to organize my PCE collection for the last week or so.  Popped in Vigilante and Lode Runner for a little bit.

But, the games I've been playing on and off for the last few months are:
Spikeout Battle Street
Virtua Fighter 4 FT (arcade)
Tekken 5
Resident Evil 4
Gradius 5
Tatsujin (PCE)

I tend to lose interest in the new games quickly these days.  Just can't bring myself to turn them on.  I was playing MGS3 for a while and just stopped.  Not because of lack of interest, but just don't feel like committing much time to it.  Same with RE4.  

I guess I have a short attention span. :)

Practiced PC Guilty Gear XX #Reload on my new laptop. Runs a whole lot better than it did on the desktop.

I was playing Sapphire, Dragon Slayer, Cosmic Fantasy 2, Valis 3 and Valkyrie Profile but I got Ys: Oath in Felghana like a week ago and I haven't even touched another game since. Really the job Falcom did on remaking 3 is just amazing. Its music is beyond awsome, its gameplay is an enhanced verison of 6, and they tweeked the story abit to fit in with the rest of the games. The game difficulty is also back with a vengence. Its about 10 times harder than the SNES verison on normal with a Hard, Nightmare, and recently released (from the lasest patch) Inferno mode. Hard is rough enough but Nightmare and Inferno will likely make me brake my moniter in frustration. Then again I don't have a controller for my PC so I'm using a keyboard.

I need to beat Ys on Nightmare so I can go back to playing those other games. That and I need to finish Dragon Force 2. I've still got a month before college starts up though so I should have the time.

Sorry about the off topic Ys rambling, but I just couldn't help myself. :oops:

Any word on a stateside release or a translation for this? Are you playing in Japanese?

Yeah I'm playing it in Japanese. So far no one I've heard has stated they are going to be fan translating it. Even if you have absolutely no knowledge of Japanese it doesn't hinder the game too much in terms of gameplay. There are already a couple FAQs out there and they get the job done.

As far as a stateside release I've heard that it might be ported to the PSP if Ark of Napishtim sells fairly well on it. Of course that is just people talking; it isn't official. I would rather see it ported to a console, but I'll take what I can get.

I should really make some screenshots, and, or movies to show off the game.

I give major applause to your friend, Steve! Using an Apple ][ for necessary needs today is ultra hardcore! He must be a radical person.
