Win an Etrian Odyssey II Soundtrack!

Etrain Odyssey II Soundtrack

Atlus has a totally awesome contest going on right now to help promote their upcoming RPG Etrian Odyssey II. Basically you write a story or something and if it’s good you win the 3-disc Etrian Odyssey II soundtrack. Seems pretty rad, I’d love that soundtrack…If your interested, you can go here and participate. My story would be all:

You see a really big and scary dragon in the woods. You are scared. You turn to your party members Greg, Robert, and Liz and are like “Uh, I’m really not sure what to do in this situation. I think we should run.” Greg is like “OK” and Liz agrees, but Robert is stupid and decides we should fight the dragon because we have many fighting abilities to beat him.

Robert casts “Find cheap deal in Best Buy ad”. “Find cheap deal in Best Buy ad” misses Dragon A.
Greg casts “That girl looks hot except her [insert body part] is messed up”. Greg’s attack fails, Dragon A is male.
Mike puts on “Old lacrosse shirt”. Mike gains 1 armor.
Liz drinks a wine! Liz gains 50 HP. Liz’s status changes to slightly drunk.
Dragon A crushes you all.
You die.
Never trust Robert.

I only make fun of Robert because he never reads this. Actually, I think this is a good start to my real life RPG starring all my friends.

I Can’t Wait for Etrian Odyssey 2

Honestly, this might be one of the worst “trailers” ever, but it’s Etrian Odyssey 2 so it’s OK. I don’t know why the first Etrian Odyssey wasn’t more popular, it’s a really great RPG. It’s tough at first, but once you get into it it’s great. Regardless, Etrian Odyssey 2 is going to be awesome. The trailer looks exactly like the start of the first one, where the soldier asks you to map out the first floor…I imagine the Japanese is saying something like “Suddenly you see a soldier wearing a crazy mask with no apparent eye holes appear out of the forest.” There’s another trailer after the link, but if you can’t read Japanese I wouldn’t bother.

Etrian Odyssey 2! F-O-E!

The video above is only funny if you played the game, and won’t make sense if you didn’t. Well, it’s funny either way. I have no idea what it’s saying, honestly, I just found it when I searched for videos of the game. If it doesn’t make you want to play the original, I don’t know what will.

Etrian Odyssey was totally rad. In case you’re not one of the 30,000 or so people who bought the game, Etrian Odyssey is a first-person dungeon crawl RPG. The game was pretty hard, and you had to draw your own map, but the graphics and music were awesome. Continue reading Etrian Odyssey 2! F-O-E!
