Wow, I just had an epic adventure with some random folks online. Started out pretty awkwardly since I couldn't even find a game at all at first, but eventually I did connect with some people.
I hadn't actually played on infernal yet since making it there with Agent D. so I was still just at level 60 but I figured I would try to last as long as I could. Well, I ended up getting teamed up with some very high level folks (some of them were level 99...) and just tore threw map after map. OK, so they were doing most of the work but I think I managed to carry my weight. Just doing random maps one after another I managed to get all 9 talismans in a single run. There were a few duplicate maps, but honestly I got pretty lucky there. And at the end I made it all the way from level 60 to level 76 in one go, plus got like 23 S-ranked pieces of loot. Woot.
This game just hasn't stopped being fun. Now I really want to start thinking about taking on the Demon Lord at the end of the Labrynth of Chaos...
I think this game might actually be fun to try and platinum (and this is coming from somebody who never platinums anything...). I was just looking at the trophy list and honestly nothing there looks too crazy. The biggest timesink is, of course, beating the game with every character class, but could also be pretty fun in its own right since they play so differently. And you do not have to beat the game on hard or infernal with every character, just normal is enough (of course you do have to beat it once on infernal).
