Lotus: Parasite Eve

It’s time to tackle one of Squaresoft’s gems! This is a horror RPG, where our goal is to take on a force of nature that we do not yet fully comprehend. It all starts with a massacre at Carnegie Hall in New York City. We’d better stop the enemy from doing something like this again. Let’s go crazy!

I remember thinking this game was Square’s version of Resident Evil and was surprised it wasn’t. Are you going to also do the Sequel?

This is an incredible game with an amazing sound track and a main character I love. I finally got a copy of the book and read it; it’s a little dry but a good read. I also found the live action movie. It’s pretty neat. The only thing I didn’t like about the game were the controls, but you get used to it right quick. The story is captivating, the cut scenes add to the story, and I love how everything comes together at the end. There’s also a Giant Enemy Crab Thing. He’s optional, if I remember correctly, and… Read more »

Yay! I remember when I requested this. It came faster than I expected! I didn’t know that it was a book first. I learned a lot before you even put in the game. Also, so far this game gives a good first impression.

Your Eve voice was surprisingly good. Haha. In fact, all your voices were.

The music is good. It’s like the best of 90’s. Also, I like the idea of something happening while the game is loading. I can’t wait for the next set of videos.

Don’t know if I’ll be sticking around to watch this Let’s Play, but I will admit that I missed hearing that theme music “Primal Eyes.” And the main piano theme throughout the game has always stuck with me as my favorite piece in video game history.

You have fun with this series.

This was the 1st game I bought for my PS1 (because a girl I was crushing on loved it) and the combat system was so unwieldy I stopped after the 1st random encounter. Although, ‘Somnia Memorias’ from the OST has been in my WinAmp since.

So Eve was named after an Eve who had her *birthday* on December 24th? That’s funny, because many countries have a tradition to celebrate certain names on certain days of the year, and Eve’s traditional *name day* in many countries is… December 24th.

Sadly hadn’t heard about this game before, possibly because I was born less than half a decade before it came out. ^_^’ Quite like the idea of a game as the sequel to a book, and the story seems pretty good for its time so far. The only problem I have is that the mitochondria stuff is really really ridiculous. The doctor is right about what the attributes of mitochondria are (they are the energy converters of cells, can divide more quickly than cells depending on conditions, have separate DNA from the nucleus), but his conclusion is essentially the same… Read more »

In the first part of the videos you mentioned there were other games that used the same gameplay mechanics as Parasite Eve, or at least resemble it. As a big fan of Parasite Eve, may I ask which games these are? On another note, I am more than happy to help you to the best of my abilities, granted as far as I can do so is via the comments. I have played through the game no less than 100 or more times, and have done and found everything one can save with outside influences to the game play such… Read more »

I remember the only thing I didn’t like about this game was the Museum stage. It’s was just labyrinthine and tedious. Reminds me of the dungeons in Xenogears. Ugh. Years later I finished it properly by going through the Chrysler building which wasn’t hard (I believe I had far too many healing items) but utterly mindless and… see my second sentence.

Okay, hopefully about to comment at a regular pace now! Took me a while to go back and look at all your videos after I realized you were back on the site, (posted some comments in all never alone and Q&A posts) but I must admit that I’m intrigued. Parasite Eve is a game I’ve heard a lot about so far, and I am eagerly looking forward to what it has to offer. To start off, I dig that the battle system lets us weave in between enemy projectiles and react in real-time, even if some attacks seem less dodgeable… Read more »

My primary problem thus far is that the writing feels a bit clunky so far. of course, completely smooth and natural-sounding dialogue wasn’t exactly custom back then, but many little things add up to make the plot so far seem a little too on the nose. Like how Dr Kramp is just bafflingly hostile and happy to exposit right from the get-go, even to the extent where he makes it obvious he knows what’s going on but acts like he can just shut down a police officer without repercussions. And of course he’s connected to a dark and strange conspiracy… Read more »

I don’t know- maybe it’s just the way the script is written and how the models can’t really convey mood and emotion and tone that well. But it just feels like she’s mad at Baker because she’s a rough rookie who plays by her own rules, and he’s the stuffy man trying to bring her down and why does Daniel obey that stuffy old man who’s just WRONG about how people are going to think she’s delusional, like for real-totes, insert radical 90’s lingo here… I mean, you can MAYBE get away with those cliches in a ordinary police drama.… Read more »
