Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Battles Wisely




Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana – the next entry in the long-running Ys series – has unleashed an abundance of new footage, revealing its animated cutscenes and action RPG combat but also boasting a scantily clad heroine to help appeal to a “wider audience”, as so many other games have done before it.

ZWEI II – PC RPG Screens

ZWEI II – PC RPG Screens, by Falcom

Falcom offers up a promising looking action RPG for the PC, “ZWEI II”, set for release this summer, with a few screenshots just released, and mirrored below.

Graphics look none too bad; full 3d, and there is the comment that characters display their current equipment on their actual models, a nice touch. I am liable to comment favourably on any RPG involving demon girls – there is indeed one in evidence, with splendid crimson eyes the colour of hellfire, and she is co-protagonist. In case you were wondering, the original ZWEI is a title from 2001, which I will confess to having never heard of.
