Awesome game, to be sure. I never read the instruction manual, but does anyone have any thoughts on the story behind the hero? It's such a strange game in that regard. You're just put into a world and the first thing you kill is a fucking huge ass titan. This guy is brave as fuck, did he know what he was getting into when he came to the land? What kind of experience does he have before? Is he tied to the royal people that show up in the end to stop him in any way? Is he part of the royal family? Is he just some street rat that wanted to resurrect his street rat female friend, going into restricted areas to do so? Did he know he was going to turn into a demon thing at the end (by the way that was such a fucking weird, cool, and unexpected turn of events)? I liked the game, but I get pissed off at it too easily. A friend of mine has been playing it like crazy though, she's trying to get the Queen Sword and white horse and is having problems on just one or two of the titans. Oh, and she's on the hardest of the difficulties in the time trials now.
