Random Nostalgic Video of the Day: Vyse is easily distracted!
You know, there’s one RPG that help get through my awkward and confusing teenage years, that role-playing game was SEGA and Overwork’s magnum opus, Skies of Arcadia. You play the role of an Air Pirate, Vyse who embarks on a quest to stop an Evil Empire from obtaining sacred gems, while fulfilling his life long dream of exploring the world.
It’s not just fist-pumping action, though, take this little amusing cut scene, in which Vyse and his crew find themselves stranded in a small town and are having a chat over how to plan their next move. Aika and Fina catch Vyse gazing upon the belly dancer, during this segment, the player gets to choose what Vyse is going to say. It’s a cute design element in which the options you choose during the conversation will build points that change Vyse’s nickname throughout the course of the game.
Here’s a pretty curious piece of trivia, this cut scene was the primus movens of one specific rule/cliché in japanese RPGs, the Vyse rule.
