Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium GirlDate Started: 6/30/19

The story’s getting really interesting.  My characters were asked to commit genocide, which none of them were cool with.  You get dialogue options as the main Highlander character, and even though I know it’s “just a game,” I can’t respond in a way that’s against my own moral compass.  Plus I’m hoping to get the one character to like like me if at all possible, lol.

What I Bought

  • Suberbeat: Xonic – $0.89 @ Nintendo eShop

What I Demoed

  • Cadence of Hyrule – Crypt of the Necrodancer featuring Legend of Zelda – I ultimately ended up passing on this game, but only because I suck at roguelike even if they are rhythm based lol.  I wound up watching an Olizandri play-through of it, though, and I was up late listening to the shopkeeper mix of the music.  I’ll talk more about that below and share the awesomeness.

Nothing to really update.  I haven’t played this in the past two weeks.  I may pick it up a bit tonight, and I’ll probably really get into it during my two week vacay.  I need to look up what to do with the grimoire stones.  There’s an option to combine them, but I don’t want to do anything until I know what the hell I’m doing.

I haven’t really played much of this.  In fact I don’t think I played it in the past two weeks.  I’m still interested in it and hope to pick it up again soon.

I try to play a little of this every night.  It’s a cute dungeon crawler that has more of a story as opposed to the Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth.  I’m also hoping there’s no level cap.

The last case in this is probably the longest of any game, and holy shit, is it intense.  This is one of the best written series I’ve ever played.  It’s up there with Final Fantasy with regards to attention to detail and narrative tightness.  Every character, every character is connected through one case that affected the course of all of their lives.  There’s no case that isn’t connected to another, and no matter how simple it looks, the circle just enlarges the deeper Phoenix and co dig.  The final case is just heartbreaking no matter which direction you look, BUT I do have some great ideas for fanfics 😀
