Let's Play Genso Suikoden II!

Welcome, everyone, to my Let's Play thread for Suikoden II, one of my favorite RPGs of all time.

Suey koh den? What?

If you're unaware, Suikoden is a game spanning several sequels and sidestories that all revolve around the concept of the 108 Stars of Destiny. This in itself is a very unique feature and is one of Suikoden's main drawing points, in my opinion. The game also revolves around political intrigue and the struggle of armies leading up to war. Your character is almost always the central leader of this war and you play a great part, as explained in the game itself.

How does this game differ from Suikoden 1?

Released in 1998 in Japan and 1999 in the US, this game had two and a half years (roughly) of development time behind it to improve greatly on many of Suikoden 1's small flaws. Of note:

For this playthrough, much like Thanatos Mazus before me, I will be asking for feedback on who to use throughout this game. However, with one caveat: I can only use the chosen people once, until all of the current Stars of Destiny have been used, then the cycle begins again. There is a boss battle about two thirds of the way through the game that you all may or may not be able to completely screw me for, basically.

With all that out of the way, let's begin!


The Suikoden series is almost always highly regarded for its amazing soundtracks. I will be linking various tracks throughout this playthrough so that you all can enjoy the music as well.
