Remember the basics of CQC, Snake!

Alright, just got to the final boss in Ys 1 and between laughing fits over how loving stupid this all is, I gave up. Even 1987-me would've thrown in the towel because holy Christ-eating-poo poo is that bad. The difficulty didn't even bother me. It was the whole yakety sax routine of having to run around in circles.

Doesn't really matter as Ys 2 is shaping up to be much better. Looking forward to playing through Ys 2 and then hitting up the Ys: The Oath in Felghana remake that I heard was really good.

Fighting this boss over and over with my brother, and getting just a little closer to winning again and again until we made it is honestly one of the high points of my childhood. I remember exclaiming to my father that we got his health "as low as a wolf's"

The Steam sale today makes me overjoyed that I held off from picking up Origins when I bought Chronicles the other day. I need to take the time to finish Ys II and give it a shot.

I usually just recommend people play YsI on Normal difficulty at most as the difficult balance really just is weird as hell. YsII is great on Hard though, feels like pretty much the perfect setting.

I can't remember, is it actually possible to hurt Dark Fact without the Silver gear equipped?

It for sure is, but you do an insanely pitiful amount of damage.
