Gram, Cecil, and Kaelin

I was never a fan of going back to other floors for a gimmick, but I guess "floor" was never a concept for this stratum, was it? I can't wait to go through it myself

EO2U 28F's teleporters have a pattern, actually, they always send you to the exact opposite end of the map. A teleporter on the top right corner will send you to bottom left corner, etc.

Anyway, voting for Cecil, Raven, and Magda

I'm personally not going to vote because I feel I don't know enough about this game, but just want to say this LP made me check out the demo for EOV and I'm really enjoying it as my first EO. Thanks to this LP for its hot tips

I make alive things dead and sometimes the other way around.


As someone who's grown used to opening doors in the labyrinth as he comes across them, that trap in the northeast corner of 29F can go gently caress itself. Atlus just couldn't leave without at least one more "screw you" moment, could they.

Also holy nine hells, Lamia's design is insane. It's like someone asked if they wanted Alraune, Medusa, or Scylla, and the answer was "yes but pink". I'll throw my votes in for Gram Falcon, Magda, and Jana.

By way of asking alcharagia who she'd most want to see, the party for Lamia shall be Iseria/Cecil, Gram/Mio/Magda.

Oh by the way Iseria's going to have the Assault Wand and Cecil's going to learn Giving it Everything/Overexertion 10 and it's going to be amazing.

Now that EOV release date is close, I am seriously curious to people's reactions to that demon lady event in the 3rd stratum.

You know, the one that is completely different if you have a Celestrian with the sense mana skill I think? It's some Celestrian exclusive skill.

People are gonna run different parties and not all of them are gonna have a celes with the needed skill.

I can't wait.

Edit: Also, I posted here because I didn't want to spoil anything in the master thread. I'll just let people post their experiences of meeting evil ghost lady.

Hello, everyone! I apologize for the dearth of updates recently, but I've been absolutely hammered with school, personal business, and EO5's US release and have not really had enough time to just sit down and write an update.

As penance, allow me to relay a bit of fanart someone off-SA drew:



This was drawn by Olivine Arc, whose Twitter can be found here: https://twitter.com/thesummerwars. Go check them out!

There was an undub patch on day one of the full release and people were arguing on the day the demo dropped, so I can very confidently say yes.

(as someone who's spent over a year immersed in the Japanese version and a translation of it I can also confidently say the US version is a good localization and has overall good voice acting)

I really, really like how Genetta turned out in the localization at the very least.

The undub patch just replaces all of the voice files with the JP voice files. It doesn't alter the text at all.

Undub patches replaces all the voice acting in the localized version with the voice acting from the original version of the game. So basically in this case, English text but with Japanese voice acting.

Lets be honest, there aren't a lot of games anymore that DON'T sneak memes in there one way or another. Some are very nuanced, others just rub it all over your face and tell you "WE ARE HIP WITH THE CHILDREN, PLEASE KEEP PLAYING OUR GAME!". One of these is better than the other, clearly. And I'm pretty sure Atlus is more or less in the former category.

Dammit, I was just joking!

But yes, the dub does seem really good so far. And beyond that, I'm just happy to finally be playing it myself.

I'm on Floor 7 and just encountered the giant enemy crab meme so far, so it doesn't seem to be too bad. What I found really odd is when some monster attacking the party was described as "pissed", that word didn't fit in with the general style of the writing at all.

Ragnar, once you beat the game, do you gain access to all voice clips? Like in the untolds we had access to the voice clips and stuff.

Do we get access to voice clips and see the panic lines and stuff?

Comparing the translated scripts to what I've seen in the NA version so far, I have to say, the localization had a ton of fun with this game.
