I was very excited that an article I wrote for TAY about why Phantasy Star II is one of the great works of science fiction was translated and published in Japanese by one of the most prestigious science fiction magazines in Japan, S-F Magazine. It’s expanded on the original essay to incorporate elements from PSIV which I wrote about at Tor.com and is arguably one of the best overall JRPGs in gaming history.
I love publishing online. It’s accessible, fast to edit, and is great for sharing. At the same time, there’s something special about being able to hold something you’ve published in your hands so it’s always a treat and an honor to have a work physically published.
There are so many great games out there and I’ve been enjoying Zelda, FFXV, as we as looking forward to Persona 5. But Phantasy Star II and IV always hold a special place in my heart and I hope you all get a chance to check it out.
