You can change the difficulty and also even change it midgame if you want, but you can disable that too if you don't like that.
Here you can choose which 3 characters you want. They all have their backstories and I'm sure you'd be interested but I guess they said to make one priest, one warrior and one musketeer so I'll do that. The blonde is cute and I don't want the mask guy.
Pretty interesting scenery here. A lot of the game can be controlled with just the mouse. Click left to move there, click continue to go on, stuff like that.
The comment before this was "I feel I'm not on good terms with the Lord" or something like that. Her comment was pretty good.
I'm sure they'd prefer it to be with a woman rather than an altar boy. Geez I really picked the wrong character, this guy is obnoxious.
So I am fighting a boss. Here I get to use Explosion, Strike and Slay over and over until I'm low on health, which then I recover self. He can't recover others as far as I know. After going through the tutorials of Recettear, these tutorials made me want to skip through them.
I rather like the victory music.
Levelling up gets you skill points to distribute.
Some mechanical tentacle looking thing came down and took some crazy guy. I'm just as weirded out about it as you are.
I don't think I posted much on the battle mechanics. I really don't get them either. You can click on one of the 3 commands (I thought in the menu you had more, but I'm not seeing how to get them?), and then just wait until its their turn to act. Repeat until the enemies are dead. It shows the enemies health though, which is nice.
We're headed towards that fortress.
This is the last guy on our party, he's a fairly cool old dude. He's a Soldier of sorts, still in shape and makes fun of the old priest for his whining, and is pretty knowledgeable. Way more tolerable than the priest.
A cool mechanic: When your health goes down to 0, they're down. But the R number below them shows how long until they're revived again. They won't have very much HP but it really helps.
I didn't get this boss. It kept going down and healing all its damage, which simultaneously smashing into the ground and dealing damage to all of us. With all that, I thought it was one of those "You're supposed to lose" bosses, so I just died and waited to see what would come out.
GAME OVER. Well, I dunno, I didn't really enjoy it. Some of the characters talk way too much, some are really annoying, and I didn't get what I was really doing. The side view thing wasn't even taken advantage of, it seems to just be there.
