Way of the Samurai:

So, anyone else played this buried gem of a series? I've only played the 2nd game (tried the first, my slim PS2 hates blue discs and vibrates like crazy while reading them, plus the first copy I tried consistently failed on an early transition. Will get the 3rd, and 4th if it's out in the US by then, when I eventually get a PS3), though I enjoyed it a lot. I recommend it to fans of the C&C oriented wRPGs.

The games are a, Better Than It Sounds, cross between a Visual Novel (heavy on the branching paths) and Soul Calibur with some RPG elements (Your sword has stats that are increased by paying a blacksmith) and lots of New Game+. It starts a bit hard, but upon finding a decent sword (and making sure you have the resources to kill the guy with it. Remember that "easy" is a trap and sticks you with shit swords), it gets a lot easier.

So far I have gotten the good variations of the following results: Police Samurai (which I got completely by accident after the playthrough I first got a decent sword in), Sayo, Kasumi and "Don't do shit till the final day" variant of the lone samurai ending. Any suggestions on what to do next?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
