As playthrough hosts, we like to mix it up every once in a while. Some months we choose a hot title like Life is Strange, others we choose a "hidden gem" that we think others might enjoy (like Folklore), and most months, we to listen to the voice of the people by taking your suggestions into consideration.  This month we do the latter.  After carefully digging through the suggestion thread, we thought it was about time to go back to our roots and tackle a true, ole skool, classic RPG.  This month, we have selected Ys: Books I & II as our playthrough.  Unlike, typical, turn-based RPG's of the time, Ys employs a "bump" system in which the hero attacks enemies by running into them. The stats of your character and those of your enemy determine the damage dealt by each. However, bumping into enemies off-center deals more damage to the enemy than you take, whereas hitting an enemy head-on inflicts more damage to you.

Y's: Books I & II were originally released as two games: Ys I: Ancient Ys Vanished (1987) & Ys II: Ancient Ys Vanished - The Final Chapter.  Over the years, both games have been re-released on various systems and even combined into a single cart/disc for a few consoles.  The story follows Adol Christin, a young swordsman, who is called out by a fortuneteller and told that a great evil is spreading across the land.  Legend states that the six Books of Ys hold the secret to defeating this evil and it is up to our hero to seek them out.  This is where our young adventurer's (and your) quest begins!

Please join us for our playthrough of Y's: Books I & II in April by signing up for our discussion thread here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=16469.0
