    I noticed that the game is on sale on the eshop for $29.99 compared with its $59.99 price tag. it may be on sale on other platforms as well. it's a very good game, so I'd highly recommend it especially if you like adventure/action rpgs. :D

    I've gone through the game twice. :)

    I'm still missing some parts of the map. I got 100% the last time, so I'm not sure where I'm going wrong. on a side note, I've started playing new super mario bros. u for the switch again. well, actually, I had beaten the game. now, I'm looking for star coins. some of them in worlds 5-8 are a major pita. I have all of them memorized, since it's one of my favorite games on the wii u, but getting to them... now, it's time for some dkc returns goodness.

    This came out on PS3 as well right? I have played most of the Ys games I truly love the first four on the PC Engine.

    I'm not sure. I know it's on the vita and probably the ps4. the games are pretty amazing, especially the soundtracks. I have ys book 1 and 2 on my wii and wii u. and, I have all four of those pc engine games on discs. I bought all of them a long time ago. in fact, ys book 1 and 2 was my grandfather's. we'd play the games together. he died before we could beat that game though. I bought the other two sometime after. anyways, that's one reason the series holds a special place in my heart. :)

    check this out too:


    it's from the same composer as ys. I haven't gotten this far in the game. gateway somehow corrupted my save, and I haven't been back. it's my favorite series of the ds/3ds.

    btw, @Fin9ersMcGee , do you know if you can get sparkling stars in new super mario bros. u? I don't think you can. I know you can in the wii nsmb. I didn't get them the first time, but I accidentally got them the second. you just have to have beaten the game without dying more than 5 times in a stage. I think nsmb wii is more difficult though. I don't remember ever getting sparkling stars on the wii u version.

    I think it only shows sparkly stars if you've beaten the game without the special block appearing (die 5 times). it's only in the wii nsmb afaik. once you've beaten the game, you can die all you want trying to get the missing star coins. that's what I did, but by accident.
