    i also bought it but I wish they'd started by bringing the first game over. Maybe they will if this gets enough sales? would be nice to see Genius of Sappheiros and Fantasy Maiden Wars make it to Steam in English as well. tbh I haven't played a whole lot of these games yet but it's always good to have more good games getting translated.

    This is probably the only time in my life when I gave the devs money for the same game twice, but those autists deserve it.

    With this release I have officially run out of reasons to delay trying this series any longer.

    Try to endure the beginning 3 or so dungeon floors, they are the most boring part of the game, it really opens up after you get more party members than you can bring with you at any given moment so you actually have to think about who to bring for which encounter.

    Unless you want to do all the optional shit, you will not need to grind in this game. If you're stuck on a boss, try a different strategy. For example, if you see that all your abilities do 0 damage to an enemy, there are ways around that.

    Don't dump all your resources into a few characters (this is the only situation where you can get stuck and be forced to grind).

    Dumping all resourses into your favorite character IS the way to play the game!

    Especially if that character can only do magic damage and you fight a boss immune to magic :lol:

    I have never played any Touhou game before, but I will pump all my ressources into the Yata Garuso girl with the nuclear reactor arm because she has the best remixes.

    The funny thing about Touhou is the best games are actually not the shmups made by the original author but various fangames like this or Touhou Luna Nights

    Isn't that the point of Touhou? The series mostly got popular because it was one of the first to be basically open license, in a country where IP laws are hell and everything needs 50 confirmation steps.

    I know why it's popular but there are so many high quality fan games (and other media) and the IP is so widespread that a large portion of the fandom never actually played a "true" Touhou game made by Zun and I find it a bit funny.

    Now that I'm done with my current games it's time for a second playthrough of this in which I'll finally see the DLC content. I'll try going hard mode and also abstaining from using the super broken units (at least until I reach the new areas). Wish me luck boys.
