Megami Tensei (46)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2017-06-07 17:53 ID:KWxzW/og

Let's talk about Atlus's Megami Tensei franchise.
Persona 5 came out and next is Deep Strange Journey in 2017 (and 2018 for NA and PAL territories).

Persona 5 is such a damn long game. I've been playing it since it came out in the UK in what little gaps of free time I have and I've only just gotten to December.

It's a great game, but it's been a while since I played something this long. I'm getting fatigued.

You're almost done so keep pushing forward.
The second time you play it (if you're planning on playing again that is) things will move definetely faster

Okumura on hard is seriously too strong.

Made a Trumpeter in Persona 5.
It's a pretty nice persona but the three riders and the Hell Niker were cooler.

20 days left to max Haru (3( and the gamer kid (3).
I don't think I can do this.

Started playing SMTIV: Apocalypse.
Four hours in and I can already say that this game destroys its prequel.

I finally got around to playing P2: Innocent Sin. It's fantastic, really enjoying it.

I want to play it too but there's no Eternal Punishment PAL version so playing only the first part would be annoying.

At least one person here is actually discussing mainline. Have you beaten it yet? I think it's superior to IV purely because of it's battle system, but the character design/writing is terribad.

>At least one person here is actually discussing mainline

Hahaha, posts 1,3.7 were all made by me (site's a zombie, can't help it).

>Have you beaten it yet?

I haven't beaten it yet but I'm almost there, crawling around in the final (and worst) dungeon.

>but the character design/writing is terribad.

You think so?
The story is interesting enough to me and the writing it's absolutely superior to IV, a game that I didn't like at all.

kek

>the writing it's absolutely superior to IV

Can I ask what you think is better about the writing in IV:A? I can see you liking it more because the story itself is more densely packed and there seems to be just more story in general, but the characters (besides maybe Dagda and the Divine Powers) are just so fucking bad and pandering in my opinion. Not to offend the rest of the thread, but IV:A seems to be taking lots of things from Personas 3-5, which I very much don't like and don't think is a good direction for the series.

Mainly how the story is more tense and overall solid than the previous entry of the series.
Everything before you go to Tokyo in IV isn't good at all in my opinion, Naraku, the very fist dungeon, was abysmal and that shit lasts for hours but Armageddon put you in between the real action right away, that's a very good thing if you ask me.
The general character design is okay if you ask me, did you particularly dislike certain characters?
>Not to offend the rest of the thread, but IV:A seems to be taking lots of things from Personas 3-5, which I very much don't like and don't think is a good direction for the series.
Are you worried about the next SMT volume to still be partially (or even more) influenced by Persona?
I doubt it will happen but who knows?
Maybe at the next Tokyo Game Show we'll see some actual footage of the game, with gameplay and all.

>the story is more tense and overall solid than the previous entry of the series

Agree to disagree I guess. I enjoyed the slow burn of IV's beginning, and since I hadn't really seen any promo material for the game, I wasn't spoiled for the Tokyo reveal or anything else.

>The general character design is okay if you ask me, did you particularly dislike certain characters?

I was mainly talking about the characters' roles in the story and dialogue etc. but yeah I also don't like any of Doi's designs at all, besides Dagda's.

>Maybe at the next Tokyo Game Show we'll see some actual footage of the game, with gameplay and all

I'm fucking hyped for whatever the new game will be (I'm assuming SMT V because of the 25th anniversary logo). It looks like a return to form for SMT with how minimal/abstract the teaser was. With that said, I kind of doubt we'll get anything new for that project until Deep Strange Journey comes out in Japan at least.

I was spoiler free too when I played the game but I still didn't like how slow everything was before getting out of Mikado.

>I was mainly talking about the characters' roles in the story and dialogue etc.

Ah, I see.
The characters are nothing special but I enjoyed them for what they are (and I also enjoyed Navarre's ''character redemption''.)

>It looks like a return to form for SMT with how minimal/abstract the teaser was

It definetely felt like a teaser in the vein of III with all those shadowy demons around...big boy Mara was in the trailer too as usual.

Yeah, you could tell the teaser was rushed and kinda cheap, but I really enjoyed it. What's your opinion on SMT 1&2? Or what do you consider your favorite Megami Tensei game?

Never played 'em but I would absolutely play I, II, if... and all the titles in the franchise that I haven't/can't play.
My favorite is probably Nocturne, which is a total killer game if you ask me.
How about you?
Favorite games/demons/characters?

18 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2017-08-27 00:10 ID:kT8LxImt

Hopefully we'll be able to play a translated if... someday.

My favorite game ever is SMT II. It has an amazing story with good dungeons and unrivaled atmosphere.
Unfortunately it's soundtrack isn't as good as SMT I's, which is another one of my favorite games in the series.
Favorite demon is Satan, and you'll probably find out why if you play SMT II.
I can't think of a favorite character, but they would probably be one of the alignment reps of Nocturne.

Oh yeah, and I have a poster of Strange Journey in my house if that tells you anything

That's nice.
The 25th Anniversary Memorial edition of Deep Strange Journey looks darn sweet and I would buy it if I could.

Yeah I pre-ordered that the first day possible. Really looking forward to the CD's and the art book.

YHVH is one cheap piece of shit.

23 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2017-08-31 15:52 ID:eRLdS8Vr

Scratch that, YHVH was ''tough'' only because I misunderstood the fight and approached it the wrong way.
The ending was good and I enjoyed my time with the game.

I still thought he was a cheap piece of shit even when I knew the weakness gimmick.
Glad you liked it though. IV:A on war difficulty is legitimately the most fun I've had playing
a turn-based game. And that's saying something because I love turn-based.

>And that's saying something because I love turn-based.
Me too
The combat is really exciting in this game.
I hope the team behind SMT Switch, the Persona studio and all the people working on future MegaTen spin-offs will take note from the action side of Armageddon.

I started to play SMT Raidou 2.
It's better than the first one. It has more demons, more "gimmicks" in the gameplay, like the Business card thing and the luck down thing. The only bad thing that i have to say is that is too easy.
I am at the beginning of the game.

I would love to play that sub-series but only the first game was released on PAL consoles.
I hope one day ATLUS will make some sort of collection of those two games (and maybe even develop a third entry in the series).

Well, I don't know about ''>lol'' but thanks for the thread bumping.
DSJ came out but I haven't bought it, how about you?

46 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2018-06-04 20:25 ID:H1w70F4J

>>45 I didn't buy it either, I played the original already. Even the law route. I haven't played a game yet where law seemed anywhere close to being reasonable.
