Unable to remember even his own name, Adol Christin awakens to find himself in a city called Casnan, on the eastern end of the Ispani. It is here that he meets Duren, an information dealer who claims to have encountered him previously. Evidently, Adol was last seen heading into the Great Forest of Celceta, a massive expanse of woodland filled with such danger that even the mighty Romun Army fears to tread within.
What happened to Adol inside the Great Forest, and how did he lose his memories? The only way to find out is to step back into the foreboding woods and brave its dangers once more. But Adol will need to have his wits about him, or his second trip into the Great Forest may cost him more than just his past…
Ys: Memories of Celceta is an Action RPG in which you follow amnesiac Ys series hero Adol Christin in his quest to recover his memories. This game was originally released in Japan under the name “Ys: Foliage Ocean in Celceta.”
Playing Ys: Memories of Celceta was my first time in a Ys game, although a few people had already told me that they were great RPGs. I had the chance to review this game, and I’m glad to tell you that it is a perfect addition for the PlayStation Vita RPG library, and you should not hesitate to pick it up… even if you haven’t played a Ys game beforehand!

We’re back! It’s only been a few weeks, I apologize. There has been a lot of traveling for some of us over the holiday season, while others had to work, so we couldn’t ever get two of us together until now.
I’ve had the PS4 since launch and I’m enjoying it a lot. There are a few things I’d like to see updated in future patches, though they’re not a huge deal at the moment. My biggest complaint over the past few weeks is with DICE and Battlefield 4 with the lack of a pre-game lobby system.
What about you guys? Did any of you pick up a PS4? Sound off in the comments below!

GTA 5 is a technical masterpiece. The parody of LA is masterfully done, the level of detail is amazing, the driving mechanics are perfect, but the story and the writing are a big let down.
GTA has always had amazingly sarcastic writing. GTA 3, VC, and SA had such unique sarcastic and brilliant mockeries of America. I can still YouTube the radio commercials and they are still hysterical. Even many of the missions were outrageously funny or just driving around and viewing the city would make you chuckle: just seeing the NPC pedestrian fashion in Vice City made me laugh or the oversized cell phones.
Even the LC Stories side game and the Lost and the Damned expansion had really interesting characters, dialog, and story. It wasn’t just GTA either. GTA styled offshoots Red Dead Redemption and Bully were brilliantly written and hilarious. Manhunt wasn’t funny, but the writing was absolutely spot on. The game mechanics were slow and grindy and behind the times as far as cutting edge action games, so I can see how that turned people off, but it was the perfect way to experience the brilliant story/art/music/dialog content.
There is still some quality writing in some of the side missions and the radio still has quality content, but the mainline story is a big disappointment from what I’ve played.
GTA 5 is technically better than ever, but the mainline story is the first major disappointment from Rockstar. The jokes are peurile. Watching dogs or celebrities humping is supposed to be funny? Watching grown men plan bank heists or Ebonics spouting black Americans revel in their gang culture is just completely flat to me.
