Anyone remember "Skies of Arcadia"?
« on: 17 Jan 2009, 17:17 »

You know, the RPG that was on Dreamcast and then on Gamecube. I've been looking back at some of my old stuff and it struck me at just how masterfully made Skies of Arcadia really was. Probably the best RPG I've ever played and I've played a lot of good RPGs.

So do you remember that game? Have you played through it? Is it totally awesome they-don't-make-em-like-that-anymore or am I just crazy?

I thought everybody remembers this game? I prefer WRPGs and I still remember this game.

 I have actually always wanted to play that and forgot it was on Gamecube. I should pick it up some time.

It had a pretty cliché plot and an incredibly simple battle system, but the sheer novelty of it made it pretty rad, sure.

The simplicity of the battle system was a good thing (they should have just made it a little faster-paced), and the plot wasn't THAT cliche, at least, not in context. I mean, the plucky hero defeats evil empire is like the basis for the plot of EVERY RPG EVER; I for one thought Skies did it with a decent level of originality.

And also yes. Fina was hot.

"Yeah, they know I'm banging both of them.  You know you're just jealous."

Seriously am I mis-remembering or wasn't it pretty much explicitly stated that they were both "with" the main character in THAT way?

It wasn't explicitly stated, but it was strongly implied.

This game is both sweet and win. Good memories from being 12ish.

Good memories from a month ago, too.

And if you played too hard it'd flop out and dangle around by the wire and that is just super ugly

It was a pretty enjoyable JRPG, although my (non final fantasty) favorite will always be the Grandia series because of the fucking awesome combat system.
