I have the first game from last summer, that I picked up on some really cheap sale yet haven't gotten around to playing as of yet. Likely it will be the next one up after I complete my journey through Troubleshooter.

Is it just me or does it kinda feel like you're supposed to drop acid before playing this?

I played the first one and really enjoyed it. Its a Wizardry like game with some dating game elements that can be largely ignored. The Anime graphics and the way that the female characters (the blood maidens who basically make up all of the party with the exception of the one male protagonist) are portrayed won't be for everyone. It is trippy though. Your caught in a demonic underworld and the main characters have connections to fairy tales. That's part of the story though.

Gosh Forgottenlore, that's just the kind of tease I needed, now I'm likely to speed up playing the game I'm currently on to get to the first Mary Skelter sooner! That wizardry comparison got my goat.

You probably wouldn't like the game "Infinite Sunshine Dust" very much if Mary Skelter gave you that feeling.

It *was* a really bizarre game. I am trying to recall the beginning, something about being trapped in a living prison, and it's a JRPG. That is about all I can remember but that is making me want to play it again.

There are some key differences. All the characters are set, though there are a few base classes, where the sub-class can be changed and customized as often as you like. You also have multiple characters of each base class by the end of the game, so you have by game end a lot of freedom about who you want in your party. Only the main character Jack is fix, but he is a unique support character. I would say its more forgiving than Wizardry in general as well, though there are some pretty difficult battles especially in the second half of the game. There is also a JRPG trippy story overlayed on the dungeon crawler.
