nice pricing, but if you truly want to save space. get one of these: the New ASUS EEE Box B204 or B206 with HDMI and Win XP. more than capable of playing Falcom games. for about 400USD. the B206 also has Bluetooth out of the eh... box
seriously thinking about buying one of these to replace my PC. don't do anything more graphically violent than watch movies and play falcom games
The Ancient Land of Ys is running trough my Blood....
then again. if you use it as a console, your HDTV supports up to 1920x1080 (1080P) resolutions. no need for max settings in resolution
Not sure I follow (I understand that 1920x1080 is 1080P) If you are implying that just because a computer can support 1080p that it will perform wonderfully at said resolution, I disagree (based on lots of experimenting/experience with that exact topic). -ud

Very nice job with "the Box"! I like to hook up my laptop to my HDTV sometimes and play my Ys on there, although there is sometimes a wee bit of stutter with the refresh rate, but no biggie. Your YsBox even LOOKS nice next all the games themselves. Again, nice job!
If the boss before the final boss had been a little more difficult (I juggled it to submission - maybe I need to replay hard mode...) then I might have just seen the awesomeness in the final boss . . .
Honestly, it did have epic scope, but victory over something epic is minimal if you don't feel threatened.

Most would agree that part of being epic is difficulty, I think. If a boss is easy, then it doesn't really feel like they were the threat that the plot was making them out to be. Also it helps if the were a significant part of the plot as a whole, as opposed to Necroning out of nowhere. But that is another debate altogether, I think.
Warning: thumbnails might not be dobby for work, oh my brothers!
I didn't much care for the FInal Boss of Ys VI either at first. It was alright I suppose, but it was hard to really care about it since there didn't seem to be as much of a built up confrontation. However, I actually like it more now after having played the English version of Oath in Felghana, because there is a small, but notable reference to the final boss of Ys VI, which was all too cool in my book. : )
Yeah the whole Zeromus reference to Necron still didn't make it any cooler, just worse in my opinion. There is however another final boss of an rpg that I feel deserves the ultimate spotlight of shame in terms of "Why the hell is this thing the final boss!?"
And that'd be the final boss of Granstream Saga. : )
