If you've seen Young Frankenstein, you know which scene I'm referring to in the headline above. If not, may I suggest watching the following clip before continuing on?
So, which sweet mystery of life have I discovered? Why, Atlus' dungeon-crawling DS RPG, Etrian Odyssey. (The original, not the 2008 sequel.)
I bought this Kazuya Niinou-developed title (used, of course) ages ago but, as is all too often the case for me these days, I played it for a few minutes and then promptly put it away--until I returned from vacation early last week.
Well, I've been playing it ever since. Sure, it's not for everyone, but I can't get enough of item-and-loot-gathering grindfest.
Sadly, it's likely going to fall by the wayside again after my copy of Dragon Quest IX arrives in a few days. I won't leave it for long, though--it's too captivating and compelling for that.
