Happy for easy mode.

Why? The game is very easy to begin with. Even if you die there is no consequence.

Becuase I like playing on easy.

I wonder what some of the details of easy mode are? I think the main difficulty of the game was not the balancing, but the number of systems to worry about. If you’re paying attention to all of them, the game is easy. However, if you’re ignoring some of them, it can become very difficult. This is why every now and then you see someone requiring 10+ levels higher to defeat an enemy you may have found very easy.
