Oh my god, something huge happened in the fifth and final turnabout.  I’m not sure if this is the DLC I saw or if there’s still another case I can download afterwards.  Most games have four cases with Rise from the Ashes as another notable exception with its five.

So the prosecutor in this game has a hilarious and ironic status, which just goes along with the bonkers situations all the characters get into.  He’s apparently an ex-samurai with a pet bird that likes to terrorize the judge, and he uses the honorific “dono.”  I have one more case even after the one I’m still on, so there are more hijinks to look forward to.

Some of my questions have been answered, or, well, more some of my theories have been verified.  I still have quite a few questions, but I’m loving this game.  There’s one more case left.

It just makes sense to declare DNF on this.  I’ll start writing the essay review on it as soon as I can, which will probably be December at this point.

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

So I kind of finished this!  I beat the final boss, which was actually easier than some of the optional bosses, but there’s still more game to go.  There’s a final floor of the labyrinth to complete, and I could challenge the final boss again once I reach the bottom in a harder battle.  I’m not sure if I’m going to do that.  I might just finish up mapping the labyrinth and doing all of the quests before I call it a game.  I’m currently trying to beat this lightning dragon, but I’m just not taking off enough HP per turn and eventually I run out of TP (the game’s magic point system), and none of the restoratives restore enough.  Like I said, this game is much harder than my Final Fantasy fare, but I like the problem solving opportunities it presents.  I wound up switching my main character back to a Highlander after watching a bit of a video on that fore mentioned dragon, since they were using techniques only a Highlander has and KILLING it, so I need to level my guy up again, possibly rest my Protector so I can put skill points into Volt Wall, and then see what Grimoire Stones I can mess around with.

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.

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.
