Thanks all! Yeah, he was very annoying for that one stretch in the police station. I'm past that now, and thankfully I could still explore after that. I'm sure he'll show up in some capacity again later, but hopefully that's the worst of it. I really like this game, but I do not care for Mr. X... he could have been a lot more overbearing for sure though.

So I just got to the part where Mr. X starts chasing me around, and boy is he annoying. I want to explore and find ammo/items, but he appears all the damn time so I have to run, and can't get back to those rooms again without him appearing. I have a couple questions that may help down the road. I'm playing as Leon on normal if that's worth noting.

First, and most importantly, does he go away permanently at some point in the story? To the point where I could explore in peace again? If so I may just critical path things until he's gone, then explore all the red rooms I have later. (I personally don't care about spoilers here.)

Second, does he really respond to noise? It seems like he shows up every 30 seconds no matter how quiet I am. I can lead him to one side of the station, then slowly walk back to the other side and avoid all combat. Only to have him appear anyway by the time I walk there.

Basically, I want to scrounge and can't really do that right now. Any thoughts here are appreciated.

@arbitrarywater: Yeah, I think there's a decent chance this window has closed for you by this point. Especially if you're already familiar with a lot of its major plot points. And that's totally fine. Something I've struggled with lately is digging through the longer old games in my backlog. Even when I can recognize them as good games, and even if they hold up fine enough, it can just be hard to get into them for more than a couple hours today. It is difficult to fit in a 50+ hour long older game, like you said, when there's more than enough good modern stuff out there.

@shorap: I also played this game as much as I could after I got it. My parents divorced when I was little, and the PlayStation was at our dad's house, so I only had access to it when I was with him. But I remember being so eager to play it every second I was there. I wasn't old enough to follow games that closely, or be aware of the delay between Japan and US releases. But if I had, I probably would have been right there with you. It certainly had a big effect on me!

I've never finished a Metal Gear game, only played a little bit of MGS1 and MGSV.

Never played much of GTA, just an hour or 2 running around in GTA3.

Those are by far the biggest ones, but I also missed a lot of PC games in the 90s. I have also never played Fortnite...

@riostarwind: I totally agree on touch based rhythm games, and it is one of the few genres I prefer touch to buttons. Go into any Japanese arcade and like, 80% of the machines in there are touch-based rhythm games. It's a lot of fun.

@dudeglove: Ha! That's a great story :) I would definitely love to see more games this quirky and creative be given a shot. Somehow visibility on the touch screen never bothered me that much, even in the Ouendan games. Maybe I managed to hold my hand in the exact right way. Or maybe I just ended up memorizing the songs, haha, who knows. Could definitely see how that could be an issue for sure.

@quantris: They are all wonderful games. I played both Ouendan games almost as much as EBA, so much fun.

@charlesfishman: Thanks much!! That is weird timing, but it's nice to hear that this game holds up and still works for someone playing it for the first time now. I always liked to think that, but I'm also blinded by nostalgia on this one, so am pretty unqualified to say :)
