Masoukishin 3: Pride of Justice

Huge revelation: I like Masoukishin!

So yeah I cleared 3.All routes.

First playthrough took just a bit under 20 hours.

Second playthrough.

And third.

Total time for all three routes was 39 hours, so about 10 hours for each the routes after the first.

I did the routes in the order the options were presented (Bagonia -> Langran -> Shutedonias) so was kind of disappointed with the last (Tytti's) route being kind of rubbish at the end. Ah well.

Stuff in 3 included:




Possession!






 Humour!

Neo Granzon, playable on one route and as a boss in another! 
(Too bad it's at its weakest ever)

And of course, returning from Masoukishin 1 and 2 is everyone's favourite part:
Balance.

No, seriously, they really balanced the game out this time. You can still kill the final boss in 2 hits, but now ALL the enemies can kill you in two hits too! Also the attacks with which they do so have long range, high accuracy, and can be used after moving. Enjoy.

The late game is kind of like XCOM, where 1) whoever hits the other first wins 2) positioning is REALLY important. The accuracy and damage modifiers from high ground are CRAZY this time, and just taking a step up onto a ledge is all the difference between life and death. It's ridiculous. And some stages are plain bullshit (like the Eran route's final stage where you get the toughest enemies in the game immediately rushing you from the top of a flight of steps, with all the bonuses that comes from being up there).

I enjoyed it though.

But fuck DLC.

Edit: The usual
