Ys Origin

Upon first glance you might think this is one of them anime JRPGs where the men look like women and the women look like women. You might also assume that everyone has funny colored hair and eyes as big as the island they came from. You would be right. I can’t even pronounce the name. Is it “Why Ess” or is it “Wise?” It doesn’t matter. The point is it’s five bucks for some kind of tower climbing, boss slaying action RPG adventure. But let’s be honest, the style is either a big turn on or a big turn off for you. Potentially literally, which is disturbing on a few levels.

Anyways, you need only watch the first few seconds of the trailer on Steam to see if this game is for you. I’m not going to sell you on the merits of the anime-style video game. You’re either into it or you’re not. Fortunately for me the steep system requirements forbid me from even playing the game. It requires something called a Pentium III 1 GHz processor which quite frankly I have never heard of, as well as 64 GB of video ram plus 3D accelerator compatibility. I can only assume that the whole game is in 3D and it requires both a 3D monitor, glasses, and also some kind of Occular rift, all just to see the hi def two dimensional anime sprites. I can’t afford that kind of hardware.

Yeah well that’s just like, your opinion, man.

You know what you should buy today instead? The Wolf Among Us or Killing Floor, available for 50% off or 75% off respectively. But also if you like JRPGs than this one will do you right. Verdict: Skip it.
