Myself and the rest of the Playcast crew are really excited to see such a great turnout for this game. Though considered a classic of the RPG genre, I would guess that many people have heard of (and mispronounced), but probably never played this game.  Should be a great month!

CHECKPOINTS:
Each Book is listed as about 7-8 hours each.  I think that the best way for us to tackle this is to finish a Book every two weeks. This means that we will discuss all potential spoilers of the first book after April 15th. Before then, you are still welcome to discuss your thoughts on the game and any gameplay mechanics you note.

April 1st - 8th = Start Book I & save before entering Darm Tower (you can't go back!)
April 9th - 15th = Finish Book I
April 16th - April 22nd = Start Book II & save at Solomon Shrine
April 22nd - 30th = Finish Book II

Hmm. Time to bust out the PC Engine setup. I'll try to play a little, but once Dark Souls III hits I'm going to disappear into a hole...

Before we even start, I just want to say how much I love the music, for the Turbo CD version....soooooo good. OMG, you guys have no idea how long I have waited for this. About two years! lol As Rich well knows, I have been bugging the community playthrough guys, to do this game for a awhile now.

I've beaten Ys I on my PSP but I haven't made it through Ys II yet. Count me in.

I'm going to be playing the Turbo CD version via the Wii virtual console.  I bought it several months ago in anticipation of this playthrough.  Looking forward to it!

@Shaggy: Do you have a power supply for a Genesis Model 1?

MK-1602: for use with SEGA GENESIS 1, CD 1, CD 2


INPUT: 120V 60Hz 35W

OUTPUT: 9V - 1.2 Amp (1602-1: 10V - 1.2 Amp)


This is a good power supply to have. This is used for the Original Genesis and both versions of the SEGA CD. There are 2 or 3 different cases for the unit, but they all work the same. And a version 1602-1 which outputs 10v but works for all. It is also known as the “Black Tip”, referring to the plug color.
