Let's discuss the best JRPG series ever made.

>favourite game?

>favourite spin off?


>expectations for SMT 5?

Will it be a real successor to magnum opus that is SMT 3 Nocturne unlike the steaming pile of garbage that was SMT4?

Spin offs like Persona welcome, but keep the SMT vs. Persona faggotry minimal.

Kaneko art, misery, less handholding than 4 and cool new demons.

Also an interview for anyone who hasn't read it by now.

>Shin Megami Tensei V producer Kazuyuki Yamai shared a development update on the upcoming RPG in a new magazine interview.

Here are the tidbits:

>“We’re working hard on it. Yes, it really is in development. (Laughs.)”

>“Mostly everything, from existing demons to new characters, is currently running on the hardware.”

>“We’re making a game with content appropriate for a numbered title and without any compromises.”

>“We’ll share an update when time is ripe, so please wait a little longer.”

>“We’re constantly considering a port or remake of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. We’re thinking we want to watch for an opportunity.”

All they should do is add the option for a cute female demi-fiend, add an Ancient Cave like section to the Labrynith of Amala (with some obligatory new demons) and make non-strength, non-magic stats actually do something.

I hope to god they don’t just try to make another SMT like 4. I want them to try to go back to how they were in the PS2 era with the series but without the core team, I don’t think that’s going to happen. Atlus becoming heavy on DLC is also dampening my excitement for 5 since you know damn well demons will end up locked behind that shit.

Is nothing sacred? What is this obsession ATLUS has with ruining everything good they ever did with needless remakes? Nocturne without Kaneko art no thanks.


Agreed. Nocturne remake would have needless Marie shoved in and a True True Demon Ending added for no reason at all. The only thing they SHOULD add to Nocturne is that scene that did not make it (was cut) in the original with Isamu getting pissed off at the Demifiend for stealing his waifu.

I just want them to allow me to transfer the skills I want instead of having to reroll for an hour.

That's it, I don't want them to touch anything else, maybe one new dungeon that's optional but I really don't want them to touch it too much.

If it's anything like they did with the Devil Survivor games we would just get voice acting which could be turned off and maybe some expansion based on our paths, it would be nice fighting an army of angels after the True Demon ending.

This is the best scenario, the worst scenario would be adding a Marie into the game and replacing all the original demons with the new art.

It's gonna be the worst case scenario isn't it.

In the long run, shitting out DLCs instead of having good content will just harm them as a company just look at Street Fighter the only people who still play that garbage are niggers. We saw that Persona 5 was selling well, infact it was the best selling Atlus ip ever next to Snowboard Kids. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they have to decide if they want to sell peanuts and have a couple retarded wales paying for their microscam OR make good games and 10x - 100x as much. Being part of SEGA doesn't mean you're mentally handicapped.

You’re not understanding something here. If you constantly reroll a Fusion, you’ll eventually get the combo you want. You just have the obstacle of time to get over to get to that point. The other option is having that same Fusion setup and then just choosing what you want, bypassing the time it would have taken. In both scenarios you get the skills you want on the fused demon from the list from the other two. You complaining about getting rid of the challenge by letting you choose from the list makes no sense when you can still get rid of the challenge by eventually rerolling for the Skills you want from the list.

092871  No.15411706


This, I fused shit like Victory Cry and Hades Blast onto shit like Preta and Will-o-wisp to make early game replays easy.

The only time I've noticed shit doesn't inherit is when the attack is just too fucking powerful like Hassohappa. I tried getting a bunch of really good normal attack-augmenting skills onto late-game demons and had to use really stupid roundabout fusions to increase the likelihood something would inherit.

They actually did re-balance, it used to be with enough tries the RNG could give you a perfect build, for example, when Persona 4 yes yes I know >nusona but I needed a clear cut example got it's Golden version, it switched to the choice inheritance system, but they actually outright restricted some skills from being inherited. What used to be possible with enough autism before became literally impossible in the new "less autistic" version. Thus enabling slightly good builds more, but disabling the god-tier ones outright.

879e89  No.15411741


Nocturne already has restricted inheritance based on whether or not a demon can actually do the move. If they lack a mouth for example they cannot learn breath skills for example.

647e88  No.15411803


That's not what I'm referring to, original P4 has those restriction as well. When they changed the system, they added new restrictions that arbitrarily restricted whether or not certain Personas could, for example, reflect or null resistances.

>The games are balanced around not having all the skills you want when you fuse

If they wanted to balance the game around you not having specific skills they wouldn't allow you to have said skills through fusion in the first place.

How do you even can say that they balanced a system that revolves around complete RNG on whether you get a good fusion or not?

> Adding the ability to choose exactly what you want to inherit takes what little challenge the game

And the little challenge the game has is based around a time restriction on how much are you able to wait until you get a perfect fusion?

And this is a good challenge?

So you can get it, so how did they balance it?

Did they balance around you not having these perfect builds? Well no because they are very obviously accessible, and most people who are aware of the system go for them.

They probably just thought it would be cool to have the demons inherit skills at random to allow for replayability, but they didn't take it into account that players would abuse this system to get the skills they'd want, thus making the player stop the game for an unknown amount of time until he gets what he wants, killing the pacing of the game. And ruining replay value.

There is a reason why even games like Devil Survivor and Strange Journey have systems that although restrict the player slightly, allows him to pick which skills the demon will inherit, instead of it being completely random.

Any system that halts the players progress and forces him to wait for an unknown amount of time based on a RNG value is a bad system no matter how much you try to sugar coat it.

2a4b20  No.15412738


Shit, meant for >>15411648

fc6c97  No.15412809



IMAGINE had the best inheritance system, where your fused demon had all the skills in a learning list and eventually would learn enough to activate them by either using similar skills or being hit by them, but the demon still only allowed 8 skills at max. There was also a pool for skills when your demons leveled up as well.

Don't believe american weebs, the SMT series is so atrociously repetitive and off-key that no sane man would suffer to play more than one a year. 1. It's a collect-a-thon full of micromanagement, meaning a huge grind that you have to start all over every time. 2 And it's way dumber than its acolytes pretend it is, since eventually you will realize how dissonant and cheap it is to play a grand tale of demonic invasions featuring evil pokemen and bad snowmen. It's like grinding Evangelion fanfiction.

<SMT is like grinding Evangelion fanfiction

I blame the yanks, though. Once a year, the grindan game is bearable; the turn press system was always a good idea. Pretending you have to follow this shit religiously, now that's idiocy. Amerifats can't even realize the shit surrounding them, let alone understand japanese media correctly: weebs are attracted by whatever means aggressively japanese - independent of quality.

The biggest problem with Caligula's story was the cringy villains with poor motivations. The good guys were pretty solid in comparison, strangely. It's almost like the game had two different writers at the same time.

I don't think it can be overstated how bad SMT4A is.

e21187  No.15422406


Ok since I am somewhat free now I can elaborate on this

SMT4A is what you get when you mix SMT with Persona/#FE. Its the epitome of everything wrong with modern atlus, from the plot retcons to introduce a third wheel shitheel down to dumbing down everything for god knows what audience. It gets so bad I can't even force myself to finish it

>you play as a 15 year old with a 15 year old girl friend

>in fact majority of your party is 15 year old(this becomes relevant)

>the entire plot starts because you are forced to take idiotic decisions nobody in their right mind would take

>this is the theme of the game with you being forced to take stupid decisions but not actually having to face the consequences of them because it all ends up working out anyway

>another "theme" of the game is the power of friendship or the power of retarded AI in this case. At least now you can now chose which tard you want to wrangle.

>awful localization(similar to SMT4 in this respect) with Dagda speaking like an edgy redditor and some demons having straight up wrong descriptions

>the gist of the plot is your character fucking up everything the protagonist of the original game did while ruining his own life

>this is supposed to be some kind of master plan by Dagda which I assume doesn't make sense like everything else in the game

>game balance/progression is fucked. the first major boss can smirk himself but then that doesn't become relevant until 40 hours into the game at which point almost every boss is spamming almighty or smirk piercing

>enemy demons have stupid amounts of health(almost double of what you get when you recruit them) with you having random encounters with 3 demons with no weakness with 1000+ health

>none of the balance issues actually matter because the game is pathetically easy anyway. They just take longer because of how sluggish they made everything from SMT4

>from increased loading times to decreased speed of auto battle, atlus has made sure that every single part of this game is excruciating

>every single character is cringe worthy,they have a fucking love triangle in this piece of shit

>basic features like healing when you level up are locked behind App points, which are finite every NG run and can only be grinded using paid disc locked DLC

>the way the plot is presented every single human being in tokyo is fucking retarded along with all of the hunter association, they send 15 year olds posing as samurais(something you can only become as an 18 year old) to infiltrate Mikado which leads to a "disguise" scene where male and female party members split up to change into disguises and you get the option to peek on the females

>the disguises in this case are a fake mustache, make up and a coat to fool angels into thinking that they are 18 year olds

The thing is, that isn't even peak of the retardation of this game. There are dozens of tone deaf moments with one of the party member being a discount puck except he is a ghost of a dead samurai from SMT4 playing comic relief.

>The story of this game begins from a point where the Persona 5 protagonist wanders into a strange world and pops out of a screen into a place that looks like a movie theater. When this happens, however, two people who should be there with the rest of the characters have disappeared: Makoto Niijima and Haru Okumura.

>The Phantom Thieves then meet Hikari and Nagi in the movie theater. After the two hear what they have to say, they conclude that Makoto and Haru were left behind in the movie. Suddenly, a movie trailer appears on the screen featuring a character that looks like someone who shares an important connection with the main character of Persona 5: Kamoshida.

>In addition to the male protagonist, the female protagonist featured in Persona 3 Portable appears in this game. She has also wandered into the movie world for some reason, running into the Phantom Thieves who are looking to rescue their lost teammates. Where is the SEES group she belongs to…?

Looks like PQ2 is inheriting P5's button-based combat UI. While it looks cool, I'm worried it might translate horribly to the 3DS with its tiny buttons, but I guess we'll see. Either way, I hope they'll include a classic UI option (but I won't hold my breath).

I don't know how to feel about this video. A man turns into a female demon. Basicially, a tranny. In this same game, Lucifer also secretly masquerades in the body of a teenage girl. Seems like demons can change their sex, whether at will or via transformation.

The implication of this being: There's a likely chance that the hot SMT female demons you face either were or weren't originally male in the beginning.

Most of the mainline SMT protagonists were teenagers. Strange Journey's guy is an exception.


Yeah, demons can be quite loose when it comes to gender. To begin with, a lot of mythological figures are sexless, so MegaTen is adapting them faithfully for the most part. And then there's the whole demon fusion thing to consider.

As for Dullahan specifically, he/she has appeared throughout the franchise in different forms, from male to female.

One very interesting case in the spin-off "Persona" is Hidehiko. Most initial personas (so far in the series) match their user's gender, but his didn't.

Well yeah, its teens and anime and haven't played a single one of them but i am guessing some of them are in school or some teen relatable stuff.

That sameness used to piss me off, but its obvious they are trying to make their players feel identified, teens are most likely the ones who would play this and school because they need things in common, also anime because its japan.

In my case if jrpgs started having mostly bitter adult guys as protagonists and darker themes id probably find them more appealing than the usual college teens save the world game.

SMT Nocturne trio were all canonically high school students and MC had the option of getting wet over his teacher's dream. While I admit that it was more ambiguous in the past it's silly to be shocked by them being youngsters in and of itself. I do agree with the disguise complaint though.

> The characters are fucking teens in 9/10 JRPGs.

It's less a problem in the earlier mainline games since as someone pointed out you played a non-descript aged individual in SMT1 and you're a genetic experiment in SMT2. Nocturne is also ambiguous as to the MC's age and I don't know about IV since I never played it but you could go anyway with Flynn. But for the Persona games, having nothing but teenagers has just led to some really boring characters overall because of the greater emphasis on plot.

The groups from P2:IS and EP show that if you put some adults in the party, you can draw upon the fact that these characters will have more life experience behind them to inform their own character, growth, and troubles. Even mixing the age groups helps with party dynamics and dialogue.

While you could have kids that have seen some shit the Persona series really hasn't done that outside of P3's SEES group. So what you are left with are a bunch of normal high schoolers going through a situation and unlike P1 where story beats are sparse and concise, with P4/P5 it's hours upon hours of the same high school shit.

I'd like them to at least do college aged people in Persona 6 but I'd also want them to drop or severly overhaul stuff like Social links and dungeon pacing because these games have become a slog to bear through.

All paths in SMT are comically bad, because they stem from the japs' poor understanding of monotheism. The notion that right is always superior to wrong and not striking a balance, is something that clashes with their opportunistic nature. Imagine a smelly chinese entering a cathedral and shout that God has no right over his creation, because it now belongs to China: that's SMT in a nutshell.

I recently beat Strange Journey, the alignment bearers Jimenez and Selenin must be the most hamfisted and misguided rethorical artifice I've ever read in vidya narrative. Weebs believe it's a masterpiece.


>you just like it, because it has content which applies to your preferences

>No shit

I love it when a cretin talks too much and something like this slips through. He just fucking admitted that his preference is first thing anime period, he doesn't actually care if it's good or not.

I've played Nocturne, I liked the atmosphere but there was almost no story so I felt like I was just doing mindless pointless grinding for hours, big waste of time. Should I play IV, Personas (played 1st one, grindan again) and other spinoffs?

>tfw the classic Persona theme plays when the player starts a new game in PQ2

Neat. I'm glad the best theme is still getting the recognition it deserves.


Don't conflate Ishida's poor narrative with the classics.

I just started with IV myself, and I already regret it. Grindan games should't be played back to back: wait a while before going back, to restart it all is just a chore.

You can always try one of the spinoffs without fusion, which are normal JRPGs.
