I finally tried a demo of one of the Etrian Odyssey games. I found mapping kind of annoying and painful. Like, I just want to move and on and experience the story, but nooo, I've gotta map stuff.
What happens if I just don't map a floor? Will the game tell me to go back and map?
I have to admit, it was kind of intriguing, but the mapping kind of got to me.
The game won't make you map the floors. But it will be very difficult to play without doing so.
This is a series in the vein of original bards tale and might and magic where mapping was done on paper while playing. There are warp tiles and puzzles that will make the game near impossible if you haven't mapped certain attributes.
Woulda bit if that was the Deluxe system. Not liking the 8gb model.
As an owner of a deluxe system I would say that the deluxe version is not worth the additional cost. You're only getting 24gb of additional space... better to take that cost savings and invest in a powered external HD. For $60 you can attach a 500gb external drive -- something you are going to need to do anyway if you download a lot of games.
