Megami Tensei/Persona Discussion Thread

First, a little bit of history. Shin Megami Tensei started as a novel series written by Aya Nishitani in the mid s. These novels have never been translated into English. Luckily, Atlus started developing games based on her novels not too long after. And the rest is history. So what is Shin Megami Tensei? Let us spell it out for you:

Set in , Persona 3 begins with the protagonist returning to the city of Tatsumi Port Island ten years after his parents died from an accident. He is introduced as a transfer student that has just moved into the Iwatodai Dormitory , but arrives late in the movie adaptation, it is revealed it was due to a suicidal subway train jumper. A mysterious boy, calling himself Pharos , introduces himself to the protagonist and asks him to sign a contract that states the protagonist will accept full responsibility for his own actions.

He is quickly brought into SEES Special Extracurricular Execution Squad , a club at Gekkoukan High School which disguises itself as a completely normal after school club where nothing of supernatural significance happens, when his awareness of the Shadows and the Dark Hour is revealed. The Dark Hour is a secret hour which only a select few with the “potential” are aware of; the rest “transmogrify” into coffins.

It is impossible to discuss this game without revealing a few spoilers. Though all efforts have been made to minimize them, some spoilers lie ahead. There’s an app for that. Need to tell the entire world exactly what you had for lunch in great detail? Summoning beastly demons from out of thin air? There’s now an app for that too—at least there is in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 — Record Breaker. In this sequel to the spin-off of the Shin Megami Tensei series, you take control of the protagonist, an average kid in Tokyo just trying to pass his college entrance exams with his best friend, Daichi, the jokey best bud to the hero.

What could possibly go wrong there? The bad news is that Nicaea actually works, and when you, Daichi, and Io, a classmate of the pair, all receive one simultaneously, all three are instantly slaughtered by a catastrophic subway wreck and the game is over. You survive by forming contracts by demons which are then summoned by a mysterious phone app, upping the what-the-hell factor, and if the three don’t figure out what’s going on within seven days, everyone in the world is going to die.

Nocturne , and Yakuza , and both of those turned out to be really good games that forge their own paths in artistic expression. Oh Atlus, you hilarious bastards you. You had me going there. Now if you would be so kind as to bring out another real Shin Megami Tensei game, I would be happy. There are no new main-series games currently being developed?

Like standard RPGs, the player typically controls a finite party and battles a similar number of enemies. And like other RPGs, death is usually temporary. But this genre incorporates strategic gameplay such as tactical movement on an isometric grid.

Shin Megami Tensei Series

I’d been clued into SMT when Strange Journey made it to the DS, and had thought the preview material sounded really interesting, but I never actually got around to checking it out. Devil Survivor Overclocked was already out. Soul Hackers was coming up quick. I did my homework real quick after that, and finally taking the time to try out Strange Journey.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 is a role-playing game in the Megami Tensei series developed by Atlus for the Nintendo is a sequel to the Nintendo DS role-playing game Shin Megami Tensei: Devil was released in Japan in July , in North America in February , and in Publisher(s): Atlus, EU: Ghostlight (DS), EU: NIS America (3DS).

June 18, Nice idea, I’ve been meaning to do this. So I sold it, but when the Overclock port came around, I decided to give the series another try, and thank goodness I did. I had spoiled myself on the plot long ago for Nocturne, as I had with DS during the period where I expressed interest in the series, but had yet to buy DSO. Even so the dungeon design in Nocturne is incredibly good, if at times a little unfair, and the gameplay holds up incredibly well though I’d like demons to level faster.

Unfortunately a data loss meant I’ll have to trudge through the entire game again if I want to tackle the TDE superboss. On the Persona front, I like SMT gameplay enough that I’m tempted to nab some Personas for that reason, but the dating sim aspect repulses me every time. And Persona 2’s problem is that I can’t get over Hitler’s appearance in the games- it’s just a turn off for me.

It is the epitome of bleakness, it is the spirit of SMT. For when one stands back and examines the central struggle in SMT, one is left to conclude that objectively, there is no hope of ultimate victory. Whilst I don’t agree with the White, they do have a point on the nullity of everything. To remedy this ennui of meaningless and insignificance, one must forget about objectivity and the big picture.

One must focus on the one world they’re in, the one world where they can make a difference, if just for the briefest of times.

My friend is a huge Persona fan and convinced me to give it a shot and I’m glad she did. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to finish all the Social Links Naoto and Kanji so I’m doing a new game plus playthrough now. I’m considering playing Persona 3 next since it is also 5 bucks on PSN. I’ve heard the battle system may be harder to get into after playing P4 first. Depends on which version you get. The original and FES force you to give tactical commands to your party members as you can’t control your party members.

From what I’ve heard though, the AI is not that bad. Portable on the other hand, the version I got allows complete control over your party and also inherited some of the changes to the battle system 4 made. Which one you should get is totally up to you. The original and FES retains it’s graphics and presentation and also has a 20 hour or so epilogue that expands on the ending somewhat, while Portable shifted to a more visual novel style due to the PSP’s limitations, but also has the ability to play as a female character with her own social links and music.

Anyway, I just started Digital Devil Saga. Pretty awesome game so far.

I had bought it,expecting it to be good.. There are more than a few things to talk about,but it’s important that they are known. First of all,chances are you might not see a used copy at your local game store. So you might have no choice but to get it the way I got it,on Ebay.. Secondly,if you like games that take a good long time to finish..

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor marks the first time the popular RPG franchise has made its way onto Nintendo DS, and it certainly takes advantage of the opportunity. An incredibly innovative RPG/SRPG system, with tactical yet action-packed combat, compliments a powerful narrative in the great tradition of the SMT s:

Page 2 The newest fighting game from the Arc Systems, the team behind Guilty Gear and Blaz Blue, is out this week and for most fighting game fans, that’s all they need to know. But the game in question, Persona 4: Arena , has a ton of history attached, reaching back as far as the late s and the NES. If you never played Persona before or any of the related Shin Megami Tensei games, or even you have, there’s much to learn. Though the series is known for its density, well take you through the history of Persona and its parent franchise Shin Megami Tensei as delicately as we can.

It all started more than 20 years ago in Japan Shin Megami Tensei begins It all began on the Japanese version of the NES, the Famicom, with the original Megami Tensei, which in turn was based on a popular novel of the same name. The role-playing game had you playing as a Japanese teen who accidentally releases demons into the world using a computer program. Despite the differences between the diverse collection of SMT sub-series, this intersection of technology and ageless demons is almost always present.

From the start the series stood out from JRPG competition like Final Fantasy, not only because of its modern setting, but also its more PC inspired first-person view.
