Chris’s Chronicles is an ongoing set of game logs by our Reviews Editor, Chris Scott as he plows through a game from yesteryear that has been sitting on his shelf gathering dust. His first batch of chronicles is with Level 5′s role-playing game Rogue Galaxy on the Playstation 2.
I decide to “leave this planet and travel through space” but I do it without telling Father Raul. His confrontation hurts a bit but honestly he should be happy, he could have ended up in a smoldering heap outside his church. I’ve seen it happen before.
I say my goodbyes, make promises I probably can’t make good on and head across the desert on a space camel to my destiny as a swabbie on a space pirate ship. Once I get there R2-D2 seems very excited to see me and they show me the Millenium Falcon. But before I can board her a thresher maw eats my space camel. I run for the ship but it starts to take off without me, leaving me to fend for myself against a herd of thresher maws.
I run after the ship because it makes more sense than getting eaten alive. Thankfully not everyone on board the Falcon is a heartless ass and a serving wench rescues me on her speeder bike and gets us both on board before the Falcon exits Rosa’s atmosphere. That serving wench is named Kisala and I want a piece of that but before I can thank her, umm… properly, I am introduced to the bounty hunter Zegram, who seems like a stick in the mud. And if that wasn’t enough, the ship’s first mate is a plucky feline named Monsha. I have a feeling some Fancy Feast will tone him down though.
I still haven’t met the Captain though, who seems to feel that sleeping is more important than greating new hires. I can’t say I blame him. Turns out I did meet his daughter though and he employs her as a serving wench. So yeah… I’m definitely going there.
Turns out this bucket of bolts isn’t quite as strong as the crew led me to believe though as we were besieged and had to crash land on a small forest moon, named Endor or something like that. Evidently there are furry little people that live here and they have spears and stuff. I want to smack them with the flat of my sword but I suppose that will have to wait until tomorrow.
