Bah, I still need to buy the first one. Smilie

Still got Skies 1 on the ol' Cube, so I'd be chuffed to bits if this one gets released.Smilie

Really strange if the PS3 is being considered alongside the Wii, would this game have a special emphasis on tilt control or something? Smilie

Yes please.

Yeah it would be odd if it\'s a PS3 and Wii release...hope the sequal is true though.

Wouldn't mind a port of the first one as well since I missed out on the first one. Smilie

I have yet to play the first. I recently saw a copy at Gamestation but bought something else after shoving it to the back of the shelf. Hopefully it will still be there when I return. I know it's rare.

Do I need a microphone to voice my opinion?

Har har!

I read about this the other day. Apparently "Sega Gamers Day 2008" was held yesterday, did anyone hear if any info came from it?

I\'ve never played the first, what kind of gae is it/is it good?

If this is going to really come out on Wii it\'s good news. It\'s also a good chance for SEGA to show they still really mean business.

Yeah it's a good game, traditional JRPG random encounters, turn based battles type stuff.

Only thing I didn't like about it was the random encounter rate was a bit high.

thanks, but no PS3 version.

As long as it's not as high as it can be in FFI/II/IV I'm OK. I can put up with that too. Sometimes on FFI/II it's just too much to bear though. ^^;

Skies is a classic. In my opinion its the best game on the Gamecube. If you like RPGs then you need to play it!

In some cave in either FF1/2 there was a bit were each step results in a battle. Very infuriating!

Thankfully Skies 1 lost some of the infuriatingly high encounter-rates when it made the transition from DC to GC. Smilie

Would be great if the sequel could have customizable/purchasable ships, I'd be able to make the Phoenixus at long last.Smilie

They mustn't have reduced it that much, either that or the Dreamcast one must have bordered on FF1 type ridiculous encounter rates!

I loved the first one and completed it on Dreamcast twice and the cube twice. Its really something special. Hopefully Vyse and some of the original characters will be featured. I;d love to see Vyse as teh father/grandfather of the main character - seeing as Vyse comepleted everything anmd become Vyse the legend, i think it'd be hard to take him elsewhere.

If anyone HASN'T played this game, seriously, i recomend it.

It\'s a very nice, very charming game, but there\'s definitely an element of it\'s one of only two well-known JRPGs on the Gamecube and equally it\'s one of only two well-known JRPGs on the Dreamcast in its popularity.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Thats true but hey at least it wasn\'t shity game that everyone likes just because it was the only game of it\'s kind on that particular system.

Oh yeah, at least it's good unlike Tales of Symphonia which is popular for that sole reason despite being a humanitarian atrocity.

Yep, I remember that bit all too well. It\'s in FFI, and it\'s in the first big dungeon. There\'s a little path to the left of the main path and every step is a battle.

I\'d gotten halfway down the little path before I realised what was going on. Same distance back on both sides... the pain!

If a game gets generally positive reviews and has many fans then that means you just don\'t like it Smilie

It doesn\'t matter what you say about it, nothing really changes that.

I still haven't bought the first one... I cant find it anywhere!!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

GTAIV?

Yes, and Metroid Prime, unfortunately.

When you may think a game is shit, you have to accept that if it got positive reviews that means it's considered good in many peoples' eyes.
