That really kills the fun of the game. Half the fun is that moment where your deciding whether to venture deeper and risk losing a ton of time, or going back to town.

Either way, i cant wait for this game. It's what got me into Dungeon Crawlers.

How horrible, adding a completely optional mode for people who think the game is too hard.
This will absolutely ruin the game for the ones that won't ever touch that mode.

Interesting, I spent so much time trying to progress on the previous one, not sure if I'll do that kind of time sink again

I thought the first 2 games were too hard, there is reasonably hard and too hard and they were both too hard, i dont know what it was about the 3rd that seemed easier but i really enjoyed playing the 3rd one, especially the added sea stuff, y'know, up untill i got to a rage inducing boss.

I think this can only help the game sell coz as most of you have pointed out, the casual mode is optional, i really hope they have retained the ship/sea stuff from the 3rd one too.

F***ING CASUALS!
Learn to NOT SUCK at games.

I like that this is for casual mode, but you know what would be cool? If they did a Contra where the game is all like; "Congratulations! You finished the 2nd Stratum! This is as far as you can get on CAUSAL MODE now play the real mode to discover the TRUE ENDING, you F**KING CASUAL n00bS!"

Nice, as I've already said, it'll be lovely to not pass the first 40 minutes of the game on the first floor grinding monsters :P

No dungeon crawler is a true dungeon crawler without grinding experience.
Lovely, but I haven't got anymore 3/4 of my days free as when I was a kid. I'd appreciate a game that is completable in 40 hours, instead of 200 :P

I'm not one for codes, but on the 3rd game, I had to flip the switch for 10 times xp. (I haven't played the others) when I went to face a boss without codes (10th) floor whale boss, or somewhere in the under sea level), I was absolutely screwed (I was Level 25 at that time). Even on codes, it took me about 3 hours to grind to level 40 at which I still only just beat him. I probably would have lost interest if it wasn't for the codes. The games are much too grind heavy.
