I mean that says alot right there. The characters are really interesting where you actually want to read what they say rather than just click through. The story is pretty good better then most. Doesn’t stack up to persona 3 or 4 relatable too those though with the dating. Actually one of the most interesting parts imo. This game is a ton of fun and the art design is great. Pre-owned by bohley2 12 May, a rare gem This is the perfect example of a quirky game. The idea is simple, a young man wants to follow in the footsteps of his father, a legendary Spirit Blacksmith. What this entails is he must find beautiful women and use their love to forge stronger, more powerful weapons. Depending on which woman you use, the sword could be forged with magic, healing spells or just more strength.
One day a group of robbers attacks his hometown, and he is forced to leave to Boyzby, the capital city of the country. There he meets a lovely girl named Sodina, who introduces him to her brother, who also happens to be a spirit blacksmith. Soon the heroes discover that the attack on Meis’ hometown was part of a much larger plan, and find themselves fighting for their lives.
Thousand Arms is an anime-style role-playing game with turn-based combat, featuring 2D character sprites on polygonal background.
From the Bonk’s Adventure games on the TurboGrafx , to the assorted Tengai Makyo games, to the spectacular Sakura Taisen games on the Saturn, gamers have almost always been treated to a quality gaming experience when the name Red is involved in the development of a title. In Thousand Arms, you play as Meis, the only son of the Triumph family. The Triumphs rule over the town of Kant, and, despite their reputation of being moderately perverted, are well known and respected for their skills as master blacksmiths.
At the beginning of the game, an evil army called the Dark Acolytes, en route to taking over the world, attacks Kant. Meis’ father, in an attempt to avoid casualties, orders the town to be evacuated rather than trying to make a stand and defend the town. During the evacuation, Meis stops to check out a girl, and subsequently is trampled to unconsciousness by the panicked townspeople fleeing the area.
When Meis awakens, he discovers that the attack has ended, but the town is completely abandoned. Miraculously, Meis has managed to escape serious bodily harm during the chaos.
No matter how modernistic you are, you cannot deny it. Quite simply, Thousand Arms is a very solid, very entertaining, and very unique abstract of ideas; one mig Read Full Review 0 of 0 users found the following review helpful Rating: The game has a good amount of dialog for it time 12 hours , and has an anime styled c By Tsuska Review Date: I thought the graphics where some of the best the ps1 had to offer.
Langoud rests on the coast, Sharan is the floating city where most of the trade and business is done, and Myscatonia is clouded in mystery and wonder. Each city has nothing in common with the other except for the fact they share the same country. That is until the Dianova sets their sights on them. Dianova is a dark evil empire bent on conquering the world through swords and magic. You get to go out with all the girls in your party, y’know?
It’s pretty cool, because the more they like you the better your spells are. And if they’re lusting after you you’re gonna get a good weapon, yeah? The power of a woman’s heart is unimaginable, especially in this game. You would need to be sooo high to not enjoy this. That or too sober I’m never either so I wouldn’t know. You gain spells by having your many many girlfriends 10 go up in intimacy level up to
Hardcore Gamers need not apply, but lots of light fun for anime fans
Rei Blazehart What if Sodina was reincarnated? What if he was needed yet again? The gift shop was piling, and the hotel was really getting full. All the couples were wearing smiles and blushes, as were the singles: Smoochy, the god of love was making his rounds again, cohering with the local ladies, much to their distaste.
It is probably best known for it’s perverse humor some scenes are laugh-out-load hilarious , novel dating-sim portions, and unique comic-book style anime cut-scenes Reminded me of Wild Arms 4. It was a pretty quick paced, mostly fun game. It was held back in a few areas of mediocrity, some significant like the battle system that might be a deal breaker for some people. However, I give it an overall positive review and would recommend a play-through if you aren’t turned off by the battle system.
The dating system is probably what this game is most known for, but really it wasn’t that big of a part of the game. Basically, you’re required to date girls and raise your intimacy levels with them in order to forge weapons with them for spells and skills. In fact, it is the ONLY way to get any spells or skills in the game! It was certainly a novel addition to the typical RPG, especially of that time period. It also helped fill a gap of otherwise low character development.
It was a welcome feature in the game and I think the game was better because of it. Unfortunately, the questions become repetitive. Every girl seems to have a common bank of questions.

Story Plot The game takes place on a ” steampunk ” type of world. The Dark Acolytes, a mysterious organization of cyborgs and robots , is trying to find the five legendary Sacred Flames, and bring chaos to the World in the process. Meis, a womanizing “Spirit Blacksmith” with the ability to make magical weapons, finds himself chosen to find the flames before the Dark Acolytes do. However, to increase the power of his weapons, Meis must have the help of a woman, and must increase his ‘intimacy level’ with her by going out on dates.
Along his journey, he meets a colorful cast of characters, including girls to date and heroes who join his party. Stubborn and lazy, Meis is forced to change his ways against his will, first when the Dark Acolytes force him to leave his comfortable home, and then when the spirits of the Ancient Blacksmiths give him the mission of finding the sacred flames. He is attracted to Sodina, but can’t resist hitting on other beautiful women.
In addition to his ability to reforge weapons to increase their power and grant them magical spells or special attacks, Meis can obtain “Elemental Beasts” to use in combat, similar to the “summons” seen in the Final Fantasy games.

Jill1 Kyleen has a project One day in Boyzby Meis Triumph stood at the date statue, fixing his hair with a small comb. He then sprayed a little Binaca c into his throat and glanced at his watch. Where the heck is she?? A girl with a red tanktop and white mini skirt came running to him. Kyleen skidded to a stop and checked her watch.
Her eyes went slant and he quickly panicked. This isn’t even a real date. I do have one favor to ask.
