Only played the demo, waiting on getting it because I'm broke. Now, is Etria our world? Or is the localization team having a laugh? Because I get the sense that it's the latter but, well it's Japan, they could have earnestly made such a connection to the real world as a sly nod wrapped in a joke.

Yes, Etria is in our world.

That's all I'll say as it could devolve into a spoiler.

Or rather, an actually relevant and not blatantly told at the beginning of the game spoiler.

Right then, so I just got Etrian Odyssey for realzy realz instead of just a demo. :3 General class recommendations since I've decided to start fresh, or am I free to experiment some? Also, potential guild names are cool too.  8)

Call your guild Dongles

Or "Extras"

and call them all "movie extra" names like Dave and Mitch, or Extra #1 and Girl #1 and so on

Call your favorite character "Director"

Hue

In this kind of game, take whatever classes you want and experiment. No matter what, barring an old hand being a backseat driver, you are going to fuck up your characters first time 'round.

But bring a medic.

Oh yeah, which etrian odyssey did you get?

Oops, thought I said in my post. ^^" ...this is why shouldn't post half awake.

Etrian Odyssey IV. :)

And gotcha. :3 And but of course I will bring a healer of some sort. :3 ...Because otherwise I will be dying. ...A lot. ^^"

4 is tardedly forgiving with your character builds with the whole 1-19/20-39/40-99 skills sections, that allow you to carefully consider what you are going to shove all your points into once you get to that level, and making you lust after that one skill for extended periods of time.

And either way, you will be dying a lot. Bring ariadne threads! One every time! Do not fight the FOEs until they re blue (on first playthrough)!

i will get all the ariadne threads. all of them

And even when playing the demo and I was brand new and shiny to the whole thing I was evading the FOEs. Because caution is a thing I do halfway gud. :3 ...I didn't get to experience the true terror of FOE until accidentally running into one in III. ^^" Needless to say it didn't end too pretty.

What, the beginning FOEs of IV? Those are easy modo.

I won't spoil anything, but let me just say this: sirens. You'll know what I mean once you get there.

Nah, I don't remember having any trouble with those. :) ...though I was still overly cautious with them anyway, because being overcareful is what I do at times.

Again it was an FOE in III. If I remember right (it's been a bit since then,) I misjudged my steps and ran into it, so the thing tore me to shreds. ^^" III definitely hates you more than IV does, that's for sure (though I haven't gotten that far in either, the former because of time, the latter because until today all I had was the demo, so I could be totally wrong too).

And... oh dear. We'll see how well I avoid getting being torn to shreds once I get to said sirens. ^^"

IV begrudgingly shares its space with you and might secretly like you but expresses its feelings by wailing on you, III outright dislikes you and greets you in the morning with a kick to the shins, II is out to kill you and wear your face as a hat, I pretends to do the same as II but secretly hands you a skill called immunizer to turn a murder session into playtime hour for everyone

And untold is strict but kind and loving at the same time, and while it brings its own characters to the mix it's also fine with letting them sit it out if making your own personalities out of a portrait is your thing. Overall it's the nicest of the siblings, being the grown up murder-playtime EO I.

There's a game for all variances of Darwin mentalities!

Yup, one in every five attempts to insert the cart into my 3DS results in the game booting up the display. The rest of the time the cart doesn't read as being inserted.

I can return it, luckily, and yes, all my other games work without fail.

Must be a one-in-a-thousand thing, since I haven't heard of the problem from anyone else on /eog/ or elsewhere.

I guess all you really lose out of it is the time for another trip to the game shop. Hope you get a good one this time around.
