Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Beat Y's: The Ark of Napishtim last night. Or rather, early this morning. Anyways, it's sweet stuff. Illusion of Gaia for the PS2 generation kinda. I'm pretty surprised no one is talking about it here.

The story is pretty crappy though. I thought doomsday weather control machines were left to mad scientists, not ancient deities. And the voice overs, my god. They're not so bad as to be funny. Just annoying. The thing is that they're so inconsistent. All the important NPCs sound pretty bad, but the various townsfolk tend to turn in a decent performance. It's like Konami had their priorities mixed up or something.

Anyways, that stuff isn't important. It's the gameplay, which is simple, old-school, and fun. I'm about to start up a new game on Hard mode today.
