No, Galerians wasn't just a phase, I've always got a passion for the game/story, even if it does have its funny, little flaws (~ω ~;
But who am I to judge? *Keeps judging*
I finished the second game AGES ago, but never had the chance to draw fan art. I thought I would take the chance now, especially while I was feeling the burn of inspiration.
This artwork isn't entirely accurate to the original character, I was having a bit too much fun with the outfit, and thought I'd give it my personal spin
The ending of the second game was a real bummer, I'm kind of glad the characters acted a tad robotic, or else I would've been torn. The total duration of the game was 5-6 hours-long. Take out the tedious running around and "puzzle" solving, and you've got yourself a 4-hour long PS2 game (it didn't help that Rion was a slow-@$$ jogger.) I think the first game was longer, and you were only slowed down with puzzles, where-in the second game, you're literally given NO direction. It was merciful the fact they'd given you a map.
But I guess that's the charm of old games, they didn't hold your hand unlike the current ones. It's certainly more of a challenge.
Then there was a bit of obvious fan service which only bothers me because it clashes with the story.. But I won't get into that. If you've played the game, you probably know what I'm talking about. One of the biggest things that disappointed me were the locations of the game, you spent most of your time navigating the one largest facility. A lot of backtracking was involved. I did enjoy the cutscenes though, all-in-all it was worth the playthrough for me personally. I had an inkling the game would have its kinks, but I'm such a fan, I enjoyed it anyway.. Despite all of this complaining
I don't know how I was drawn to these games so strongly, it had to be the dark atmosphere and the unique setting. The story's old, so you're gonna have some left over cheesiness, but I'm positive that if it was ever remade.. It would just be epic.. And I would probably die of happiness at the news (´；ω；`)
