See, I recently encountered a webcomic.
One page, just one page. One. page. Had a character who looked like Deugan, from MARDEK.
And now I have an urge to play that ridiculously addictive game that I never completed because I am obsessed with 100% completion. (I got midway through Chapter 3, but when I did so, I did so by sacrificing Chapter 2, and this was my first time playing so I wasn't going for 100% completion back then.)
100% completion for just Chapter 2, mind you, is...about level 40 or so on all four characters. You can beat the game at level 12, if not level 10. At least in theory, going through at the pace you're supposed to be going at. And that estimate of 40? That's an incomplete estimate because I've never gotten to 100% completion on Chapter 2. I've gotten relatively close, in the 30s and farming for the last few upgrades requiring a ton of fights and a ton of times basically clobbering myself (self-attacks, though sadly those don't boost defense, merely attacks), not to mention, standing there and doing nothing just so that a magical creature can attack for those magic resistances...
,,,But I've never done it, yet alone, managed the much longer Chapter 3.
And while I haven't caved into temptation yet...
...I'm awfully close.
WHY, MIND, WHY?!?
