Title: Currently playing The Nightmare of Druaga
Posted: April 09, 2011 (10:25 PM)
Dungeon crawlers are not normally my thing, but this was going for $5 new on Amazon, so I got it.

I've played three hours into it, and I'm not sure yet if I like or hate it. So far, it seems like a fairly typical dc, but it has some little tiny things that irritate the crap ot of me. Like saving; I get the quick save aspect that pops up between floors, but I just don't get why you're forced to turn off the system with normal saves when you're in town. It's annoying because you have to go through at least 5 logos, an intro, the title screen, and finally, the load option, to finally get back in the game. It's stupid.

Another stupid thing is that you have to have everything unequipped when you begin a side quest. You have to do this manually. Everything has to be off and gone from your inventory before they will allow you to do one. And when you finish a side quest, you have to equip everything you stocked away afterwards. It's a headache having to remember what setup you had in your inventory before you did this.

Anyway, the game seems decent so far, but if it continues the way it's going in the next few hours, I might give up on it.

I've thought about picking that game up. However, Etrian Odyssey was such a great dc, IMO, that it would be a tough act to follow. I still might give it a try in the future if I can find it cheap.

I've currently put the game on hiatus after defeating the first boss. I don't think I'm currently in the mood for the game's style of difficulty (you lose all items on you if you die, sans one or two items you can inscribe, and half your gold).

And reading a little bit about Etrian Odyssey, I don't think going from that to this right away would be a good idea. XD
