Finally broke down and ordered YS VIII CE from NISA.

 

I don't really have the spare funds and I don't really know how to pay for it yet, but I am weak, so very weak.

Does your review have punctuation? I'd like to read it.

This and God Wars, it is always only the PS4 version that gets discounted, I wonder why.

Unless you're someone who takes 6+ months to play through one game that's 50-70 hours, I would just start it. You can easily take breaks after the games and longer ones in between the major arc plot lines (TitS FC/SC -> TitS the 3rd -> ToCS I/II). I mainly say that because the endings of Trails in the Sky FC & Trails of Cold Steel I basically kick you while you're down due to their endings. Some people have issues with breaks in between direct sequel endings that hit you in the face.

 

Also a lot of changes have been made to the Trails in the Sky SC & FC scripts in retrospect after finding out things in later games to help connect the wording better. One in particular even got their name changed entirely. Unfortunately the PSP version does not have these changes. Only the PC version does. Plus the PC version of Cold Steel will have a lot more voice acting. Particularly the main character who was silent in a lot of dialogue when other allies weren't.

 

EDIT: Also, the EVO versions were done by Chara-ani, which aren't great. Some people prefer them, but ehh, I'm not particularly keen on them and the changes they made to it.

Fortunately I can actually mathematically plot out my game time, since the only time I have to play games is on my Vita during my commute, which is 90 minutes round trip per weekday. So a 60 hour games is about two months if I play it on every trip.

 

I should finish Escha Logy this month, then will probably do a short indie game to refresh, and decide to play Disgaea 5 (still sealed, sigh) on my Switch or start FC EVO next.

Man, Trails in the Sky is one of the top games for my back-log. I started playing the first 45 minutes, but haven't committed to digging into it deeper. The crazy thing is that I originally acquired the game for the PSP, so I've basically had it for as long as it has been available.

 

I think my reluctance is associated with how long those games tend to be, and how strong their stories are rumored to be. I love a good story, and have a very hard time stopping when I get into any such story. I just know that if I get into it, I'll be spending the next month and change doing nothing else.

Same. Imported FC Evo and still yet to open it. Just this series (FC/Planned SC EVO Import) and Sky 1/2 can extend my Vita life by at least a year after literally no games are coming out to the Vita.

 

Compound that with the Atlier series on Vita, which I'm currently finishing up Escha Logy, and YS series (Memories and upcoming VIII), and God Eater 1/2 import, along with preordered Danganronpa V3, I feel intimidated and happy at the same time.
