Etrian Odyssey 4 - not too impressed

#41FindmeElseweyrPosted 2/8/2013 4:27:50 AM
Honestly, I expected to fully hate EO:4 because I've never played a oldschool dungeon crawler before (I prefer to see my characters on screen, always have, since the SNES days) and lately, turn-based combat (outside of SRPGs) has been boring the crap out of me.

However, I've been playing a lot of text-based browser games that essentially have you click a button to choose your next move, and I'm utterly addicted. So I figured EO couldn't hurt to try.

I'm actually very pleased with it. It's a pretty good game. Not sure if I'll pick it up at launch, but I'll definitely consider it; if I can find it on the cheap (~$20) I'll definitely get it.

All other EO games have that kind of exploration style...

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

I was excited to try it out so I booted it up. The menu system was good, graphics were great. Then I got to the first forest and saw the attrocious exploring style and was immediately turned off. It was horrendous.

Thoughts?


we care what you think why?

I grew up with the likes of SNES RPGs, and I've never touched one of these first person styles before. It was interesting at first, but eventually I started to get a headache. Not only that, but I found the battles sort of boring. I was really disconnected from my party, not only because most of them are pedophile lolis, but also because they never talk, etc. This game is not for me. Maybe I've turned into a casual now that I have a life.

I have a life, am married with a mortgage and two kids, and I find pretty much your entire post to be shortsighted, not grounded in reality, and pretty damned offensive to boot.

Why don't you do everyone a favor and shut the hell up?

None of my characters are "little girls"- the game uses an anime artstyle with large eyes, and you don't even have to use a fem avatar in any capacity if you don't want to.

Just because you're so god damned ignorant about anime culture that you keep spewing this crap doesn't mean anyone wants to actually listen to you.

Anyone who thinks any of my party is either loli or in the least bit scantily clad is just stupid.

Well, I guess that about sums YOU up. Screw off and go play in traffic.

You took the b8, m8. Anymore proof you're not a sicko? Any one who fervently compiles such a tl;dr paragraph must be pretty desperate to cover up the truth. "B-but I don't use the lolis! S-so.... you're dumb!" I feel bad for your family to have such a vapid, insecure, and immature patriarch as yourself. Let's keep it to game discussion.

-Seacrest out.
