A weekly post updated every other Thursday detailing my current gaming projects. I have an account at Grouvee, which is a site you can use to keep track of your backlog, so please feel free to friend me there!
What I’m Playing
Title: Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl
Series Title: Etrian Odyssey
System: Nintendo 3DS
This game is much harder than the RPGs I’m used to (i.e. Final Fantasy, well after IV at least). By the time I was at the same level there (60 or so) I was wrecking everything pretty easily and at least not needing to heal every battle, but Etrian Odyssey really makes you employ strategy. I’m still getting one shotted by some enemies, especially since I changed my main character’s class from the original Highlander to Landschnecht (sword and axe user). Doing so throws their level back down to 30, BUT you get the difference in skill points. It lowered his HP though so a hard smack will knock him out. I also rested my Protector, which makes you go down two levels, BUT you get all of your skill points back to redistribute. I realized I could put more towards party defense so I can better shield every one. I’m still struggling with two quest bosses, so I need to level up some more before I can take them on (they’re worth 50k ental, the game’s currency, a piece). I believe I’m near the end of the main game, though, since I’m on stratum five out of six in Yggdrasil and there’s only one more floor of the Gladsheim facility. I may replay it in Classic mode as opposed to Story, which lets you choose your classes like prior EO games. My characters are in utter beast mode in Etrian Odyssey V.
