Gamesugar’s Ys I & II Chronicles Contest!

Ys Contest Ys I and II Chronicles
This is the week that Xseed Games wraps up their PSP Ys trilogy, with tomorrow’s release of Ys I & II Chronicles serving up a retro dose that includes a bonus soundtrack with the retail version, which Xseed has dubbed the “Hair Metal Pack.”

Xseed’s whole hair metal kick got me thinking that some of you out there are probably pretty “metal”, and as is the tradition around here, we’ve got a few codes for a digital copy of the game courtesy of Xseed – three codes to be precise – so here’s the deal…

Hit up the comment section of this post between now and 11:59pm est on Sunday February 27, 2011 – and tell or show us why you are, in fact, Metal.

Since that’s open to wide interpretation, we’ll spend the following Monday combing through the comments to find the most entertaining and ridiculous responses in order to crown three winners with a digital copy of the game.

Throw up the horns!

Also, good luck!


  1. I’m a raw molten beast of pure metal and victory. My unending force of raw power and fury lay waste to the landscape and sear the very skies above. While some people’s fingers dance across the buttons of a PSP, mine ravage and rock the system, my sheer force of will transferred into the game with every touch. No weakness, no surrender, no mercy, I bust away from the limits of gameplay like Meatloaf riding a bat-winged Motorcycle out of hell.

    …Plus like, I totally beat the Black Pikkard once. That was pretty sweet, yo.

  2. So, can I take a shot at it? Hahaha.

  3. I just wanted to say… Xseed rocks! (Obviously this isn’t an entry to the contest… I just want to post!) :) Xseed would be ├╝ber metal if they’d get on that Brandish Dark Revenant localization now that Ys is out the door… just saying! C’mon Tom! ;)

  4. Ok, I’ll have to agree with Ujn. It’s time for Brandish to shine!

  5. After a car accident, most of my body parts were replaced with prosthetic parts. The doctors went a little overboard and implanted special abilities in to these parts, so now I can shoot lasers out of my arm and fly around. I use these new-found abilities to help save people.
    Therefore, I am metal because most of me is made of metal, and what could be more radical than saving people from impossible odds?

  7. Well, my roommate has been having a Saw movie marathon for the past few days. Watching it has made me wish I had the Metal Blade weapon so I could toss saw blades in 8 different directions dicing up any foe that would get in my way. Wouldn’t really want any of the rusted metal from any of the movies though, because I wouldn’t want to give anyone tetanus.

  8. Sometimes I wish my family were a secret race of metal-infused genetics. Then even women will match the men in strength and help around with the chores. The only problems i have to watch out, is when i create a magnetic connection with metal objects I touch. Occasional visits to the doctor a few times to get metal screws out of my ears, and picking out needles and bits. But I could impress my fellow classmates, pretending to levitate objects, and show my metal birthmarks. Otherwise life as a half-metal person is pretty interesting, as well as it’s downsides..

  9. I have a high defense, a low HP total, immunity to most spells, and I give away a ton of XP if you defeat me. I also have a tendency to run away from direct confrontations. I must be Metal!

  10. I eat Magnetons in the morning, while controlling my Metal Gear;
    I finish Metal Slug with one credit;
    Detonate Metal Sonic with Metal Mario (and vice versa) listening to Metallica;
    And do 100% in Through The Fire And Flames in Guitar Hero’s expert mode while playing Ys I & II Chronicles in my PSP using my feet!

  11. I go to work dressed as Doctor Doom. I train my body bumping to bears and other random stuff. I train my fingers playing JDK Band songs. I’m just so metal! In the mornings though, I’m just wood :o.

  12. I listen to a lot of heavy metal music. Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Epica, Ozzy, demons and Wizards, Sonata Arctica, and believe it or not Stryper!

    Comment by Homersteve — February 22, 2011 @ 7:02 pm

  13. But… do you listen to The Darkness? Because they rock.

    Comment by Ujn Hunter — February 22, 2011 @ 8:57 pm

  14. Too bad the lead singer went to rehab and the group disbanded.

    Comment by EdEN — February 22, 2011 @ 11:33 pm

  15. I know… it makes me sad. I want another album! Two is not enough! I need more sweet music to sing along in falsetto to!

  16. …………(sorry im metal and cant speak……..)

    Comment by darkmark — February 22, 2011 @ 7:21 pm

  17. Because I love to say “You’re rockin’ with Dokken”

    Even though I’ve never heard a Dokken song. The phrase just fascinates me.

  18. Well, I’m what happens once Robert Boyd and all his brothers merge together. I AM king!

    P.S: Don’t hit me too much or else I’ll have to split with Robert and the gang and that’s never fun. Too much pain loosing all the memories…

    Comment by EdEN — February 23, 2011 @ 4:18 am

  19. I’ve got the touch, and I’m always ready to roll out. Don’t drift off into the Dream Theatre or a certain Decepitcon might just leave you thunderstruck.

  20. Steam comes from me when I get hot…… oh I thought you said to show I’m a kettle.

    Comment by Jon — February 23, 2011 @ 6:57 pm

  21. I watch hours of disney movies every week with my kids… If sleeping beauty isn’t metal than I don’t know what is.

  22. I am metal for a million reasons, but the most important being that as sustenance I consume the souls of children. I travel into their dreams with my weird helmet thingy and have bizarre things happen to them. I even make Ron Pearlman shudder!

    Also Im the greatest backyard wrestler of all time!

  23. I hit the green block and got a cap that transformed me into a living metal with a heavy tread I am now able to walk under water and get stars that were previously unattainable.

  24. I am metal because metal is way more harderer than iron. While the literate man may examine that statement and say it makes no sense, the problem is that he isn’t metal. When you’re metal, you get to make up your own phrases (like “way more harderer”) because you drink a cup of HEADBANGING every day with a side of FACEMELTING GUITAR RIFFS, and therefore have attained a state of total omnipotence – allowing you to use double-neck guitars and beat the original SNES version of Ys III without a single death.

    Being metal also allows you to instantly cure cancer, create or destroy matter, instantly grow a beard to any desired length, divide by zero and open packets of sauce for toaster strudels without getting any on your hands.

  25. Hear that metal ringing? Do you know how hard it is to carry these things between my legs?
