I’m playing this for the first time right now and I literally just completed this level this morning. I had every experience described, including choking at the last and dying in trying to get the shine. With the notable exception that I didn’t randomly figure out this dismount glitch(?). Read more

That game is scary as hell. Fuck that village, those hard puzzles, those damn characters and all the scary shit in that game. Whoever came up with Mundaun is a twisted sumbitch.

Every time I’ve started a new character on my server, someone has eventually either asked me to join their guild and then showered me in Gil or randomly started chatting with me while I’m questing in the general chat. Really easy to make friends and chill with Read more
