Shin Megami Tensei // World Is A Fuck, Kill Em All


#41

Oh I love the Persona games, they are easily my favorite; SMTIV:A was just to tide me over until P5 came out! No need to lurk!


#42

Much as I love the mainline SMT games I’ll admit Persona 3 & 4 has really taken over as top quality for SMT games.


#43

I am so close to finishing Persona 3 Portable. I am on the last day and I’ve been enjoying this game a whole lot this playthrough (third time’s the charm).

Even though my playthrough of SMTIV:A was smoother and in one attempt I think I’ve enjoyed Persona 3 more for the story alone. Some really interesting things have happened that remind me that I wasn’t satisfied with Apocalypse’s ending.


#44

I wish I had more free time, because I would love to actually play Persona 3 again. I know I said that it was my favorite, but I think I neglected to mention how much I love the characters, which is a lot. Especially Aigis. I’m such a sucker for exploring what it means to be human through the eyes of a non-human, even if it’s only through her Social Link.

Ah, but I probably wouldn’t have time to finish it before Persona 5 comes out.

…Or… Would I…?


#45

I am so happy that Shinji didn’t die because I loved him and got him his old pocket watch.


#46

That’s one of the things they changed for the Portable edition, as part of a bunch of changes along the female MC’s path. (I don’t know if it’s changed for the male MC?) In general I think P3P is definitely the best version, but I’m a bit sad it doesn’t include The Answer (the epilogue where you play Aigis), as I really enjoyed that FES addition.


#47

Which is amusing to me that you mention FES because everytime I tried to play it around my boyfriend, he’d always try to stop me. -shrugs- I CAN TAKE HARDER TARTARUS! LET ME AT IT.


#48

Winter 2014 is almost here


#49

So, this seems like a good place to mention it: Atlus just announced SMT: Deep Strange Journey for the 3DS.

And here’s the announcement trailer.

New graphics, new demons, full voice-acting, a new character… And, of course, no word of a western release yet.

But, hey, if they do bring it over, it’ll be a chance for me to see how the story of the Schwarzwelt ends!


#50

I liked the setting of Strange Journey but it’s got some bad dungeons that feel like trekking through the old SNES SMT dungeons.

Buuuutttt I really liked the setting and characters so I’ll try and finish SJ and get this new one.


#51

Part of me has wanted to go back and give SJ another try because I always felt bad about giving up so far into the game, but if they make any changes to make the dungeons more tolerable, I’m sold.

…But I might be sold already just by the fresh coat of paint.


#52

May have misread that’s it’s a remake. I’m on board now.


#53

Wow, I definitely wasn’t expecting a remake of Strange Journey, or for the poster boy for new demon designs in it to be a facelift for Andras of all things.

EDIT: Actually, looking at this full image of him, that’s definitely Ammon/Amaimon, not Andras. Still cool. Also, check out the sudden reappearance of Maria from SMT:NINE.


#54

God damn those are some big red claws Amon has


#55

The better to use Madness Nails with, my dear?
