Etrian Odyssey 4 - not too impressed

The only "truth" I see is that I found someone else to add to my ignore list.

*ignore*

That makes three. Gotta change my sig now.

If I haven't responded to a post directly addressed to me, that's probably why.

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.


Jeez, pull your head out of your ass, Buddha. People like you make me loathe the internet.

I hear Lightning Returns is coming out. That might be more up your alley.

Yep, it's not for everyone. It's a hardcore grindfest and if you aren't interested in some serious pain then that's too bad because EO doesn't really offer much to the mainstream.

And yes, it has some barely-dressed anime babes and that is always a good thing.

You know, someone isn't a "casual" because they don't like this style of game.

There are tons of terrible design decisions that hinder broad enjoyment that a select few masochists like.

Maybe if he had a gun visible onscreen he woulda liked it.

It seemed interesting enough. I loved the idea of drawing the map, and the function worked very well. The one thing that turns me off is the idea that none of your characters actually matter or even say anything during the story, and as far as I can tell, you don't even see or customize yourself. I had the same issue with Dragon Quest 9; it was interesting enough, but you get to make all these unique characters and they don't even make a peep during the numerous cutscenes.

It defeats the purpose of having an JRPG with a party. I might as well be playing Pokemon or certain SMT games instead, at least the party members have a personality via animations and sound effects in those to make up for the lack of dialogue, rather than simply being chibi anime cardboard cutouts in a menu. Part of the reason I enjoy Fire Emblem: Awakening so much is the relationships you can form with the party members.

Granted, I could be wrong. There could be dialogue for your custom-made party members that occurs during the storyline (again, assuming this game even has one worth mentioning), and I'd be fine with that, but from what little I played, there wasn't. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Personally, I can't just play a new game for good gameplay anymore; I need something else to draw me in and put a game on top of my huge backlog of games that have not only good gameplay, but also have meaningful characters and plot.
