I think its awesome how hidden gems like this game still have a passionate fan following even today. I played Drakan a few years back when I was trying to build an extensive PS2 collection. There's nothing else like it on the system. It truly stands out on its own. I'm happy to see a fans keeping the memories alive. I checked out your first vid and will watch some others later on. Great job!

It truly is one of a kind and here on this board you'll find people who share the same thoughts for the game. Drakan: TAG is a perfect example of good storytelling as well as fluid and satisfying game play. Even though it is without beta testing the glitches it encounters (primarily those on the original PS2, which is the system I am using for my videos) are both exploitable and avoidable, which makes the game very much playable. Even some glitches can be undone by other glitches (did Dehrimon fail to give the Kragmor quest? Just do the mountain bypass glithch into Kragmor). So it appeals not just those who love this type of fantasy story or RPG adventure game, but to those who enjoy this game as a playground to explore and discover glitches (or a mixture of the three mentioned. I hope to do a video play through when I am done with the glitch tutorial videos. Let me know how you like them, and more will be coming soon. ;)

I hardly know what to say.
I see this lone thread standing... A testimony to gem-quality effort, and I have been here for none of it.
I will watch all of your vids, and gratefully so.

When I am at greater leisure and armed with coffee, I'll give feedback and any clarifications I might be able to offer.

You, Mighty Warrior, do please the Gods.

Thank you guys. I have been out of it for a few days cause I was sick. The next episode should be up soon. I will also post the last few episodes I have down soon as well.

Swampeh I will be looking into that glitch of yours while I still have some ballistas left in the game. I actually did not know about Arokh's melee attack. Thank you for sharing and I will be sure to quote you for the find.

Thanks for the feed back and keeping this thread alive Gelbot and SwordCzar. I owe you guys.
