Yo. We doing this. Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together is an SRPG in the Ogre Battle Saga, a series originally developed by Quest before its eventual purchase by Square. It was originally released for the Super Famicom in 1995, received a port and translation for the PSX in 1998, before eventually being completely remade for the PSP in 2010. Rather than mimicking the unique RTS-like gameplay of Ogre Battle, it has a TBS system that should feel quite familiar to folks who've played any of the Final Fantasy Tactics games; in fact, the first two FFT games were made by many of the same people who created the first Tactics Ogre, after they'd left Quest for Square. All things considered, though, Tactics Ogre is (in my opinion) better than its Final Fantasy-themed offshoot, and the remake's attempts to hew closer to its own spiritual successor arguably made it a bit less enjoyable. For that reason, we're gonna be going with the SNES version, patched with the translated script from the PSX release. This might seem a bit odd, but the PSX release has some minor issues with framerates and loading that the SNES version doesn't, so the translation patch makes this a slightly superior way to experience what it ultimately the same game. One thing that was irrefutably better in the PSP version was the script, however; while the story is the same, it's told considerably better in the remake than the original release. I'll still be giving you the original script, but I'll also be discussing and comparing the new one to it, especially in areas where the older version fails to clarify something adequately or is just kinda inconsistent or poorly written in general. I may also touch upon the differences between the two gameplay-wise, as despite being a remake the PSP release plays very differently in a lot of ways. With all that out of the way, let's get started. Sorry in advance for some awkward formatting, TO is more text heavy than I'm used to doing for these LPs.
