Well, I officially got my sea legs back, or whatever the expression is. I remembered just about everything I needed to gameplay-wise, picking up where I left off, back on my grind and everything's going smoothly now. Damn, it's good to be back. I guess playing Elona is kind of like riding a bicycle. You never truly forget it.
Despite the high tax issue I mentioned, I think I'll stick with Omake for the time being, mostly because I've grown fond of my current playthrough. I definitely intend to give Plus a try sooner or later, though. I've read about how they changed Kumiromi, and I'll admit it intrigues me. I'm not in a rush, though. I'll take my time.
My most memorable recent moment is when I approached a dungeon room full of hostile suicide bombers. The dumb fucks were all tightly grouped, so when the first one exploded, so did all the rest. They all died in a big chain explosion, I survived and never had to lift a finger to fight them. What a bunch of retards.
