Ok with Christmas coming up and the Steam Winter Sale going on I'm going to give away 1 steam copy of the second Trails in the Sky game(right now 18 but usually 27 bucks). There is a little condition though. I want to give the game to someone that falls in love with the series.
The way I'm going to judge it, this is basically a opt in for everyone that gets the first game on steam (it's only 8 bucks currently in the steam sale so if you want to opt in it's basically best to decide until the 2nd of January).
After that I want the people that basically want to opt in just to share their impressions while playing through the first game.
Depending on the number of people(I don't expect all that many) the game goes to the person that impresses the most while sharing their own journey through the game/the first one to finish the game.
I expect there are probably going to be ways to cheat this by watching LPs or what not but I hope people going to respect my wish that this copy goes to someone that actually wants to play the game.
Right now the deadline is a month, but I'm also okay with extending it. Should nobody participate I'm going to give the game away through other channels.
Anyone that wants to participate just drop a post in this very thread indicating so.
Feelings on the game from 4 years ago:
Just finished the game and well it was pretty damn good. This game makes me just scratch my head thinking about how many good psp jrpgs I've missed.
It's a really well rounded solid jrpg with a really fun battle system and a heartwarming and charming story (that said I'll admit that it's probably not winning a price for originality but pacing and execution were excellent).
It seems the status of bringing the second and third over is still hinging since it seems to have gone a bit under.
So vita and psp owners if you'd like something to play on your system I really recommend to get this from the psn store, it maybe isn't the best jrpg ever but it's a damn shame to miss out on this one. Especially in a time when good jrpgs are somewhat harder to come by compared to the ps2 era.
