Then again, I haven't gotten into the game myself. I'll do it eventually, though, I swear.
It's been so long since I played it, but yeah, the game is easier once you get the hang of it. With that said, I wouldn't mind getting a cag night together for this game. Could be fun since the only people online it seems are the japanese and beating them is impossible.
