Megami Tensei (64)

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
