BT - "Before I begin, let me share an anecdote. Six years ago, I was taking a break from my public speaking course to browse the new DS games at Gamestop. As I perused the various RPGs that graced the retailers racks, I happened upon Etrian Odyssey. The game had just come out and its old-fashioned gameplay style made it stand out from the puzzle and brain improvement games that surrounded it. It seemed strange and mysterious and it called to my love of adventure."
