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 first line is one of my least favorite localization decisions in the entire series, and … Continue reading Trails of Translation Ep. 3: Choke on a Pom (FC and CS1)

Trails of Translation Ep. 2: My Pure Glass Heart is Broken (Sky FC, Ch. 1)

This week in Trails of Translation I’ll be looking at Olivier Lenheim’s introduction in chapter 1 of Trails in the Sky FC. The translators took a few more liberties here than they did in the last scene I wrote about, adding some flavor to the dialogue and making a couple of changes for added humor. … Continue reading Trails of Translation Ep. 2: My Pure Glass Heart is Broken (Sky FC, Ch. 1)

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky The 3rd – Review

Everything about Trails in the Sky the 3rd is strange. It’s the third game in Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky series, following Trails in the Sky First Chapter and Second Chapter (referred to as FC and SC from here on), but it’s not called “Third Chapter” for a reason. It’s a mostly unrelated … Continue reading The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky The 3rd – Review
