Really I'd go listen to the first skip to after the mistborn block and then listen to the rest. All the stand alone are safe and some are really interesting worlds.

I bet somewhere online there is a timestamp list if nothing else.

Emperor's Soul: fffffffpersonaaaa

Ys I Departed Ancient Ys Omens Chronicles Complete 2009 & II with Knuckles: Oh lol I didn't realize this was Falcom as well. B8 hype machine, don't let me down! This is the most JRPG lookin' JRPG what ever did JRPG. I approve. I am not sure I quite grasp the Bump System, and getting immediately murdered by the first enemy I found did not exactly boost my confidence! Not entirely sure yet what I should be doing- I need a full set of equipment for the fortuneteller, but that seems like it's gonna take a looooot of grinding. Still, this seems like it'll be fun once I get the hang of it, despite my general apathy towards action-RPG. Do wish I could play windowed, though. Z and X being the reverse of usual is also gonna throw me. Booted it back up after work and got as far as the shrine, where the ghoul boss thing has me completely stumped.

There's a secret to beating Ys bosses okay i've only beaten the first but sources have informed me this is consistent

the key is

be overleveled

I spent an hour trying to figure out the trick to that thing and it turns out you need to just face-tank the fire and bump the hell out of him until he dies (preferably before you)
Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination.

I am not sure what that reaction is to but I have a guess.

Emperor's Soul: Beated, good times! Kinda surprised she never used the normal-person-who-doesn't-know-she's-a-forgery seal but it worked out nicely and we DID get to see the martial artist one.

Sixth of the Dusk: I skipped more stories than I meant to, but I don't think it's super worth it to spend an extended period fishing through the CDs to go back when there's a decent chance I'll listen to this whole thing again anyway. >_> Sixth of Dusk is a dang mood, and I am excited to learn more about Aviar. I am gonna keep asking how many cool magical ideas Sanderson has until he runs out.

Yeah the martial artist is really cool and I like knowing she has this special stamp that isnt used. Man I loved that story.

You only really missed two. One is volume 1 of what ended up being a comic book and the other is kind of a ghost story.

He second is cool but I'd say it's not worth hunting back for them. You can check them out down the line after mistborn if you really care

Sixth of Dusk: Beated. I kinda liked how it didn't go the solid-but-cliched route of noble nature vs evil development! Tied up nicely at the end too. For some reason I'm always kinda hooked by jungles that are actively hostile like that one.

Ys: Lv. 5 Adol with upgraded armor laughs at that phantom dude! ...Kinda lame fight though if that's how you're supposed to do it. At least grinding is painless! I snagged a girl from the floor below, and got a mask of eyes which is probably super helpful if I have the patience to try it in a bunch of places. I don't think I do. Escorting Reena out of the dungeon was kinda a pain! Her pathfinding is...not great, and she's slow and dies quite easily. But we got her out eventually. Game sure has a lot of waifus! And husbandos too, actually. Looked it up and this was originally an NES game! The earliest copyright date I saw was 2001 but it was giving me a real NES-y vibe so that explains a lot, lol. Neither a point for or against it, it's just kinda interesting to go back to that style of very minimal storytelling and information.

Edgedancer: Poor Wendell. I hope the other Voidbringers stop making fun of him for being vegetarian :(

Edgedancer: Oh, Wendell almost went to that cobbler guy! That woulda been nice up until a certain point.

LP MGS4 3-1: Oh, Johnny's here. And we...get his poop barrel. Lovely. We get to see the little robot in action some though!...Meryl! :O

STEAM BATTLE #3 Touhou- Tried Reimu out, and got all the way to the backup dancer duo, so that's fun. Some of these spellcards are rough for me even on easy, but maybe once I've played more it'll get easier to follow.

THE VERDICT: ....hm. It was a tossup going into the match, and it still is. Solid characters, both sides. Solid music, both sides. Graphics: edge AA. Gameplay: ....hm. I like both. Convenience factor: edge AA- can't touhou during lunch breaks! Listing it out like that, it looks like Aviary Attorney bumps off one beloved series. Can it repeat the performance in the finals?
