"The cause of its sudden appearance in Yamal - its name means the 'end of the world' in the far north of Siberia - is not yet known
A scientific team has been sent to investigate the hole and is due to arrive at the scene on Wednesday."
The hole is the Schwartznelt. Demons will escape into out world and the hole will progressively get bigger until we die in the atmosphere of the demonic world and/or are destroyed by its plasma walls.

>Ever going Law
/v/ is Chaos, a complete and utter hellhole but full of freedom that occasionally allows wonderful things like OC to shine through.
/vg/ is order, dissent is quickly put down or banned, it's a productive but dull place.
/vr/ is neutral,
/vp/ is just faggotry
/vg/ is certainly not Law if it's productive, since all Law allows is 24/7 prayer and no free will.
/v/ & /vg/ are Chaos
/vr/ is Neutral
/vp/ is Law since they're both worthless
Who even made the demon summoning program in smt? Did Louisa give it to them?
I'm only chaos because I want to fuck a demon
Strange Journey is my favorite SMT game.
The spooky si-fi atmosphere along with the amazing dungeons and demon customization just goes so well together.

Its time for /v/ to assemble a team of able-bodied spelunkers equipped with demon fighting equipment to delve in and defeat the soul of the planet that has been waked by mankind's destruction of nature.
That's sort of what I think. He'd probably attempt to study them even if they clearly broke the laws of our universe. I'm just complaining that if he saw stuff that was clearly supernatural, I doubt he'd ever say it was, rather than become his SMT self who hates demons so much, he makes a computer program to bind them.
>not picking the only logical alignment
Megaten overall I've liked Raidou, Digital Devil Saga, SMT 1, SMT 3, SMT 4, and Soul Hackers. If you want to count Persona I thought 3 was much better than 4 and that 1 and 2 had some good songs as well.
Because Atlus fucking said it was.
It was gonna be SMT 4, but because fans. were all like "MUH TOKYO" they changed the name.
One of the goons claims they received the DSP from a random email urging them to use it, just like Stephan did in the first game.
To unlock the full potential of the DSP you need the Stephan app.
Isn't that Darkness not so much the lack of light but some sort of demon magic? I don't understand why you'd need three different night vision modules when a flashlight would work. Hell, you could even use Sonar or something instead.
>You will never go around demon recruiting with your comp
I was playing 4 and loving it until I found out I have to grind 150k to move any farther in the story and dropped it. My question is, what's the next one I should tackle? Release order or is there any p[articular stand out from the series? Haven't played any besides 4.
Its just the earth processing excess methane its why yellowstone is most active right now because the extra methane in the magma chambers is at critical mass so like my great idol Kazundo Goda says "like water in the human body always chooses to run down the simplest hill" so is the same happening with the methane choosing the least resistance patch to expel itself which happened to be in Yamalsk Sibera region no worries

I have a feeling this is bait after seeing matador reposted here endlessly but I'll give it a try since it's on psn.
50k for the platinum card and 100k for the black card or something along those lines. I have only about 10k on me and I didn't feel like grinding money for hours. I really liked the battle system though.
Its not. Matador is a casual/retard filter that forces you to learn to buff/debuff.

The sides of sinkholes don't look like explosive and/or impact craters. What it probably was was a massive explosion of Methane locked up in the melting permafrost of Siberia due to climate change.

Tell me that isn't some limited release. I'm tempted to hit an order down on Mandy for Jack Frost
I use money to fuse from memory since I never have to buy items or equipment. Plus I'm not going all the way back to naraku just to grab some asswipe demon when I can just pull him back for 2000.
I thought that was the story quest, I did a quick check on gamefaqs and they made it sound like it was required to proceed? I don't remember the plot directing me anywhere else
That was a side quest to tell you about an area in the game that will offer shops who sell the best equipment at premium prices.
I surprised the idea of getting that much money didn't indicate that maybe this isn't a main quest mission
you don't need any cards to progress in the main story, I bought the cards only to get to one of the riders.
I would know because I grinded for all 4 riders before finishing up the main story.
Head of Ashura Kai wants me to kill the leader of the red gang.
Well I thought that's what I had to do to see her, all the quest said was succeed in the trial in order to join. I had no idea it wasn't the main quest.
You will die if you don't have the demon summoning program to protect you.
Don't forget an assault team with the most advanced technology in the world and the best trained soldiers got their ass kicked by a couple of pixies before they were given the program.
Which is funny because Kaneko says that any random person being a hero is a major theme of SMT.
I haven't play a lot of the series, but I've only seen that it's true for Strange Journey and Soul Hackers.

Join me, son of man, so that we might be rid of demons!
Question for SMT fans: which is a better place to get started with the series - Nocturne or DDS? I've already played Persona 3 but I want something more combat-focused. The fatigue system in P3 made me rage so fucking hard.
>You're a weak, skinny loser.
>But you get lucky, and a cool demon joins you.
>He teaches you how to fight, and you and him/her push each other to get stronger.
>Both of you are rolling in demon ass.
tfw this could never happen.
If you want something with more of a story, you might want to go with DDS.
If you're okay with very little story, go with Nocturne.
The gameplay in both is about the same, just that DDS has the mantra system instead of demon fusing
I bought Nocturne on PSN because it was $8, whereas the DDS games were $10 each. I think I might wait for the DDS games to go on sale and then start with them. I have a feeling they will be put on sale soon for $4 each like the Devil Summoner games were.
>couldn't handle the fatigue system in 3
>the system that was virtually non-existant after 10 hours
You are too fucking casual for SMT. Go wank off to Persona 4. It was made with people like you in mind.
>Work hard to summon a demon, set up all the proper magical items and stuff
>Realize you have nothing to offer any specific demons halfway through or even any names in mind
>Quickly decide to just invite any demon that would like you for any reason and only offer your friendship
>Somehow it works and you successfully summon something
>It's fucking Mara
>You ask her why
>"You masturbate more than any one else on the face of the earth, we're meant to be"
>mfw I brought ken, kuromaru, and aigis along with me to the final battle
i never grinded during the game and just wanted to have akihiko in my party and him do something
i liked the dog
ken has mediarama and since i knew nothing of fusion back then (or really anything about smt) i just used him as healer
i want to go back and play it now that i've beaten nocturne on hard mode and see how difficult it is
I played FES and quit because it was slow and boring and the party AI was absolutely retarded to the point that it would have been just as easy if certain members were not there at all on some fights.
Enemy is weak to my magic?
Better only use normal attacks that they are almost immune to.
Remember to break them out of stuns before their turn and to not focus fire properly!
Don't give me any shit about the useless battle tactics that work half of the time either.
>this fucking hole
I don't understand.
Is this really the end?
I wonder how many anons will get the program.
On one boss I had to tell akihiko to do nothing at all, not even heal, because he would only break my stuns and give the enemy their turns back.
I tried setting him to heal only but he would attack anyway.

>Without the aid of the Demon Summoning Program, you can’t understand demon speech (discussed in the next section) and can’t talk unless they voluntarily address you in your native language (which is very rare). However, it is possible to make contracts with demons through other means, either through rituals or by having a strong will. The demon, Lord Yama, for instance, will come to the call of one with a strong sense of justice. However, this is very rare.
What's all this weeb shit. It's almost Emergence Day, and some dumbass Grub just jumped the gun, that's all.
b-but i am neutral
I've played 3 and 4 in addition to this
4 i dropped when i realized the combat was bullshit, right around the time when you're fighting the giant white dudes towards the end
and i've never dedicated enough time to 3. got past the thor fight twice, then walked away. i have no excuse, i just have shitty attention
Does the capacity of my device whit the DSP APP afects the number of demons i can have?
like, my 1 tera computer can hold a bunch of demons instead of the 3-7 of a cellphone_
if have a server can i get an army
or haremof demons_
Nah, it's a planet called Sera. A lot of early fan speculation was that it was a planet colonized by humans from Earth years ago, and that the Locusts were its originial inhabitants before humans showed up and drove them underground. This wasn't the case in the end.
Fan speculation on Gears lore is actually way more interesting than the lore itself.

Lotus Juice confirmed for Strange Journey WiiU port
When I delve deep into my psyche, sometimes I get disturbing thoughts. I'm fearful that I harbor too much resentment, and that if I got this sort of power I'd use it irresponsibly, to murder and conquer. Simply because I could.
But no, that's not me! It can't be!
In any case, I'd choose the path that allows me to survive for as long as possible. Anything else is denying your humanity.
Having Sariel or Chernobog as companions would be really rad.
Herlad zomie and fungus skeleton
Nah man, you have to remember that the devils that you summon from the program for the first time straight up try to kill you so they can be free.
You know all those demons that weren't summoned by other summoners? They all got summoned to this world and killed their respective summoners to be free.
>In any case, I'd choose the path that allows me to survive for as long as possible. Anything else is denying your humanity.
Even if that means permanently fusing yourself with a demon?
>Not being bros with the Jack gang
Seriously, free snow cones, you'd never need to light another smoke, and you'd get summon demon ho-hoes for sexy parties.
I hope the next SMT game allows us to recruit and fuse humans again.
This isn't a fucking gunfight, dude. Suppressing fire doesn't mean jack shit and if the command says Heal/Support I should expect the character to use Heal and/or Support skills, not Attack or use offensive Spells.
Or is it too casual to want a menu where the words match the actions you get?
Dunno anon, what do you think?
Welp, been good to know you all.
This is my first reply, but if there's nothing Akihiko can do regarding healing or supporting, then he'll act as if he's been set to act freely. Setting him to heal/support will only increase his priority to heal, not guaranteeing him to heal every turn. He'll only heal once a character goes beyond a certain amount of HP.
they only attack if there is no one to heal since that's the only way they can support the team at the moment
they don't use magic that is reflected or attacks that are blocked.
Did you scan the enemy?
DDS : Easier game with customizable skills. Party Members and story. No demon fusion. WAY easier, less robust. Have to play both games, both are considered 1 game.
Nocturne: More Robust game, more dungeons, more bosses, Demon fusion. Only bad thing is once you forget a move you can't learn it back, and its not casual friendly. no need to grind, all bosses are puzzles to solve
Yeah, he didn't use magic.
He used is sword for 3 damage hits on enemies that were knocked down just before their turn started.
All while another character with who used an element they were weak to that was set to, "nuke the living shit out of these assholes," would also never use magic or use a charm spell that always failed.
It was easier to win with them dead.
The comments are even like an SMT game.
>mfw summoning Jesus and God as demons
It's a roleplaying game.
You should put yourself in the main character's shoes and do what you would do in the situation. That's the only respectable way to play the game, otherwise there's really no point to any of it.

I was sad.
I'm not saying it's hard to grasp once you know what's going on, but it still makes things
artificially difficultby giving you a choice between AI roulette or a turn wherein you do nothing.
Again, playing the game you realize these things, but they're still counterintuitive to what you're given in the menu.
The forces of Law and Chaos laugh at you.
It's not outside the bounds of conjecture.
You can already summon all 9 of the ranks of angels, as well as the archangels and Metatron, so Jesus is the next obvious step. And you can also already summon both actual historical humans as well as mythological humans. They WON'T do it, though; Japan knows that it would raise a shitstorm that even they don't want to deal with.
Can't possibly summon YHVH, though. That would mean you couldn't fight him, and what kind of SMT game would it be if you can't fight God?
I'm not indecisive, I want to stop both sides because they're retarded.
>it's an understanding that you need both Law and Chaos
More often than not it's an outright rejection of both extremes. Not so much that you want to have both, but rather that you'd like to not deal with either.
But, more than ANYTHING, it means relying on humanity's power instead of God's or demons'.
>tfw need to get a new phone soon

Almost every design I've seen of SMT4 has been really killing the interest for me. Is every demon that bad? Why the fuck did they change from the other art style?
The older designs were what got me into this series in the first place.
A lot of the old ones are still there.
SOME of the new ones aren't so bad, like Minotaur
Dammit OP, I opened this thread because I thought you were talking about a SJ sequel
>I mean we do control the world.
Why are other currencies worth more then? I can't believe Americans actually believe this, most of you only speak english and if you do speak another language its spanish which is useless unless you just robbed a bank and want to hide.
>tfw the world ends before you ever play Strange Journey
I kept putting it off...
I don't mind that too much that's kind of a cool reference, I just think the monsters look like shit, most of the SMT mosnters were simple comapred to these that are just vines connected to a bunch of shit.
