        I like @luis_cypher 's musings that Christianity has absorbed the Celtish and Germanic heroic myths and as such is the inheritor of the pagan spirit. Certainly fits the saint worship and all. But I need to spend more time thinkng about that one day.

        Stella Glow is shit (not my taste). The tactical combat is very easy, slow and braindead. Often it is just enough to circle the enemies with your troops and spam basic attacks with sluggish animations. Worst srpg I ever played.
        It has good music and a neat story, also some decent characters, but bad combat is a cardinal sin in an srpg.
        Also you have to rub the clothes off a bunch of lolis in a bonding minigame.

        Risen 1 falls off harder than most games, because the scavenger hunt for the crystal gears is genuinly retarded. Still, it is much closer to the quality of Gothic 1,2 and Elex than to Piranha Bytes dark age.

        I checked Risen 2-3's credits and Risen 1's just to establish a comparison and I didn't see a difference. It was almost the same staff making it. They tried something different and it ultimately failed.

        I think with Risen 2/3 they were trying to be more mainstream. Irony being the further they deviated from the Gothic formula the worse the mainstream reviews actually became.

        They seem to have somewhat taken that lesson to heart with Elex, though that still makes quite a few allowances for "modern" design.

        I didn't game too much in my absence, mostly read a bunch of stuff. Kant's critique of reason, Pynchons Gravitys Rainbow and The Sandman by Gaiman. Also I really want to be done with that so I can read this French comic Lagole Gon introduced me to Black Moon Chronicles.

        Northerners have genetic admixture from Viking raids here, Easteners have a lot from taking Slavic refugees after Wolgadeutsche were thrown out of the UDSSR. Apart from that Germany is fairly homogenic, but the Bavarians down south were historically a different tribe than the Saxons up north, unified with them in their hatred for Magyars.

        Right side looks a lot better in full UI. The two weapon buttons are almost symmetrical now aswell.
        What still needs work is the health, stamina, xp bar and event log. The boxes those are in clash really badly with the underlying boxes in the brownish main panel texture, and at the top even clip above it, giving the whole thing an unfinished look.

        1 released the same time as DQ III, and has some of the same charm, but not being able to change class during the game cuts down on the flavor.

        3 is much more advanced than 1, but there is not really a good version of it as the SNES version never got a proper port, and it introduces some JRPG tropes and streamlining which DQ III does not have.

        5 is more normal JRPG than 1 and 3, but it has the best multi classing ever invented in JRPGs, and the default for tactical games to this day. As it is very easy in all versions version differences do not matter, unless you play difficulty mods.

        That reminds me of some cursed shit I read today in Journey to the West. In the country of women there is a river with so much Yang energy that everyone who drinks from it immediatly becomes pregnant. That is the reason for why the country needs no men. If men however drink from the river they become pregnant aswell.

      Finished SMTIV. It was pretty good, if a little boring setting/story wise. The gameplay is top-notch. I still don't get the notion that Naraku was way harder than everything else. The game had a pretty consistent challenge curve to it, I thought. The Hordes can hurt you even if you're a much higher level. I thought Pluto's dungeon was more challenging than Naraku for sure.

        IV A has even better gameplay and even worse story/setting. My big hopes for SMT V are that it reaches the golden middle between III and IV when it comes to gameplay and story quality.

        Agreed. Nocturne has really cool characters and a very cool setting. IV's gameplay is just a little better tuned. Very fun. I do want to try IV:A soon, but it'll probably be after I play V.

        It seems that V has taken over the most important parts that IV A brings to the formula, so thats a sound plan.
        I plan to drop everything for V aswell.

      It's indeed intimidating since theres like 30 years of them, but ironblooded oprhan is a stand alone, so any watch order will work.
