  1. This video was a nice surprise, I'm definitely gonna play this, I was too young to appreciate games like this when it came out, I've fallen in love with arpg's like this since though

  2. I like how the watch were 3 feet away from the thieves and they still got away lol, also that intro with the dwarf char is hilarious on account of his short legs, he has to power walk.

  3. I was shocked when I saw the announcement yesterday. I played it originally back when it came out and it's a game I've wanted to see re-released for a while. Playing it tonight on my PS5, it still holds up. The graphics are a bit dated, but still look fine rendered in 4K. You're in for a treat!

  4. I played it on PS2 and it was great! But 30 bucks? And it's no remaster or remake. Just HD Upgrade!

    For example, if you look at Mass Effect Legendary Edition, where you can get real remasters for $ 20 per game!

  5. Definitely hope you keep making these and finish this game. It gets really good the longer you play. Played it on the ps2 and Xbox all those years ago.
    Also try out the damage visual option. They way you can see when you hit the enemy. Makes it a little bit easier.

  6. Fun fact don't press this button combination it will spoil the game
    L, R, X and Right on the D-Pad or Simultaneously hold L, R, Y, Left on the D-Pad and press start don't do this

  7. Had this on my PS2 nearly 20 years ago. Got it as a Christmas present and couldn't stop playing it. Was a blast with mates doing co op too. This takes me back. Great nostalgia Glad this got a remaster. Thanks for the vid!
