In celebration of EO3, (and because I feel like it and never have before) I'm going to play through the previous two Etrian Odyssey games. I'm aware that I cannot carry over my data from EO2 to EO3, but that is fine, because I have already come up with a plot point to explain such a thing. I just find it fascinating that I am able to create my own story from the bare bone plot of the Etrian Odyssey games.
I don't know about anyone else, but it's so much fun for me. I wonder how long of a story I can make off of the first etrian odyssey game? I'm hoping to do 1 chapter per floor. And with 30 floors... that's a decent amount of chapters, but that depends how long each chapter is going to be. I know for a fact that they're going to be longer as I go down the labyrinth, so the first few chapters won't be as long.
The next EO blog I post will hopefully be the start of the epic journey of Clan Succubus. I've already started to write it out as I play the game (as I'm typing this at this very moment.)
Well. I have to say I'm getting rather curious about a few things. Some of the puzzles were rather difficult for me, though. But I managed to pull through soon enough. One of the cut scenes in the casino was fun to watch. I wonder if something like that can actually be built in real life? It'd be fun to see. Maybe it's something to throw at the Mythbusters. xD
I think I've gotten over the time travel hurt, though. I'm more interested in the mysteries at this point.
.....Are you kidding me? I suppose I spoke too soon when I said that time traveling worked in Professor Layton. ...Now it seems I have to retract that statement henceforth. I'd mention the plot of it, but it'd probably spoil for people who haven't played yet. So I'll just mark it.
So the evil nemesis is Layton himself. (Or so it is revealed thus far.) The way it's been set up does not make sense. ...Basically because Layton's mere presence in the future of 10 years negates the 10 year future in and of itself, because he is not in the 'past' to set up the future events.
This is why time travel doesn't work. Especially if it involves yourself in the future or anything involving you. Your mere presence may very well negate the whole thing. Oi...my brain. It hurts.
Anyway. That's another blog up. I'll probably be updating as I go through every chapter. (I just started chapter 2.)

I was actually very excited to see the 'Quick Look' at the third expansion in the lore of Professor Layton. It seems to be the most interesting of the series, having to do with time travel.
What's funny is that I actually loathe time travel. But somehow, Layton seems to be making it work so far. I barely reached Chapter 1, so I have a bit more to go before there's more plot involving time. So far the puzzles have been pretty easy. I'm sure they'll get pretty hard eventually, though. As is per usual with Layton.
Hello world of GiantBomb~ It's been a while since I was last here, but I'm very excited about tomorrow! Etrian Odyssey III is finally making its way to US shores! Yay! ...I'm kinda sad that Dark Hunter isn't in there, though. But I'm sure I'll find something suitable.
It'll be a real challenge using all new classes this time around. Will have to re-learn everything from the basics to the tiniest tricks to make life easier in the world of Etria.
