Something other than Xbox platforms, you mean?

Yes. At least Microsoft has been good with backward compatibility.

I have the discs but no (working) Xbox :(.

Lost Odyssey was one of the main reasons I bought a Xbox 360.

The main reason was to play a bunch of cool CAVE bullet hells games, but Lost Odyssey looks fascinating. I still need to actually dig into it.

Congratulations to bobbywatson, our first Ys VIII finisher! I had said earlier that our song theme this month would be "normal" battle music, and why not start the celebration with a game that we all wish we could play on other platforms?

First game I'm going to (re) play once I finally get my hands on a Series X

And I'm the second Ys VIII finisher, with Sundown close at my heels! I'll share with you all some of my favorite regular battle music, from FF X:

Sundown slides in at number 3! In honor of his finish, I present you with a remix of a classic battle track that's sure to get you jazzed:

For comparison, see Final Fantasy V's battle music:

And congratulations to Malkroth, our fourth finisher!

I'm stretching the category a bit here, because this plays while exploring each battle map, not (technically) during the battle cutaways. But for Ogre Battle, I think that counts:

Oh dang, thank you, I love the Ogre Battle games! I really wish they would make them available on Switch. I think Ogre Battle 64 was available on either the Wii or Wii U VC, but I really don't want to have to hook those systems back up for that.

FINISHED IT!!!

I attempted to have several saves to get all the villages.. but i just deciced to finish it

My VERY 1ST Ys game.....
It was OK... not stellar for me but ok.

Satisfied with the ending.

I remember back in teh the 90s. I saw Ys on a Gamepro magazine...always wanted to play one ever since

It's time for the Black Friday sales, so games are going down in price. Of note to the club is that frequent contender Xenoblade Chronicles is on sale for $27.

If you want it and don't have it, it's probably not going to get much cheaper.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is also $27, which is an all time low.

There are probably others as well that I'm not thinking of that are out there.

Congratulations to Darkhaund, our fifth finisher! Your battle music is another banger from Falcom Sound Team:

You're welcome! I was such a big fan of the original Ogre Battle (never finished 64). Switch would be such a perfect platform to replay it, or Ogre Battle 64.

Thanks for the song.... remiends me of the 1st Trials of Cold steel game I played. ahh the memories..
