For the first episode in (checks last post) eight months... we’re looking at one of the most memorable scenes in the Trails series, the Weissmann villain reveal at the end of Trails in the Sky FC.

Top 10 Trails from Zero Moments

Similar to Trails in the Sky FC, I believe Trails from Zero to be a massively underrated game by the Trails fanbase. I’ve seen the sentiment that Zero is a boring and uneventful game, but I couldn’t disagree more. It has a relatively self-contained story and is light on the big-time action that make games … Continue reading Top 10 Trails from Zero Moments

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC – Review

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter was developed by Nihon Falcom and released for PC in 2006 in Japan. Despite being over a decade old, it’s still relatively new to the west, as it was not released until 2015, partly due to its monstrous script and years of localization hell. Western … Continue reading The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC – Review

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC – Review

If you don’t like reading, this game may not be for you. If cutting-edge graphics are something you look for in an RPG… go play Final Fantasy XV. But if what you do value in RPGs includes world building, character development, intriguing plots, and the some of the best writing in the video game industry, … Continue reading The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC – Review
