>he saw Lucifer frozen in his lake of tears. Believing that this demon was the fabled "Snow Overlord" he was searching for, he tried many different things and was eventually able to impersonate Lucifer. He then returned to Hell to become Lucifer's minion, but by then Lucifer had vanished.

WHAT
>>
>>85455072

That was a nice attempt at a save, but it falls short. Being a snow demon, when the other snow demons banished him, he immediately assumed the big king thing frozen in ice like a little bitch was some kind of snow king, so he wanted to emulate that since he didn't know lucifer was frozen since he was literally too much of a bitch to stop crying and freezing himself. He wasn't trying to become chaotic. He mistakenly emulated the wrong person. And in the end, becomes herald race. That's not even just law. Its light too, and by soul hackers standards its Ex. Law. It even says he has nothing to do with the real lucifer other than copying him by accident.

>>85455273

He also appears in soul hackers as herald race. So his only official alignment is law.

>Chaos BTFO again. They don't even have the best lucifer.
>>
>>85455407
>He also appears in soul hackers as herald race. So his only official alignment is law.
Do demons have specific stated alignments in Soul Hackers? Because otherwise him being Herald doesn't mean shit for alignment.
>>
>>85455535

Yes. They do. As the post you're responding to just stated. Soul hackers actually has more in depth alignments than mainline. In the same way for your main character in mainline there's a distinction between just being law/chaos enough that at the end you can't pick the opposite ending, and where it forces you onto specifically that path, in soul hackers for demons there's alignment, and Ex alignment, which means further down that path. Herald race is Ex law, which means he's not even a casually law demon.

Why are we pretending stated demon alignment matters in most games? Its usually just a side effect from the clan they thought would be fitting.

As "big" strongest second to lucifer in the way satan is to yhvh, he's definitely trailing a little behind. If you want to compare satan to lucifer instead, and metatron to beelzebub maybe you have a point.

That's a thing in some hentai.

Eudaimonia isn't an ideology. Its a word for saying you lived a good and / or happy life that different ideologies define differently.

More like
>Law
>neostoicism.

At least since nocturne and on law has taken on a more explicitly stoic nature. And neostoicism is basically stoicism revived in the 1500s in a way that made it acceptable for christian audiences. Some protestant reformers talked about it calling it heresy, since apparently some of them were actually trying to be closer to regular stoicism, but with a christian veneer. Same way regular stoicism used "zeus" as a synonym for god even though their idea of god resembled zeus in no ways.

>dont look at me with those empty eyes. Why aren't you having emotional reactions?! Have you given yourself completely over to god?
>Do you have no human emotions left at all?
>I see my loud growling can't cause you to have any emotional reaction. You must be a true warrior of light!
>Hurr. Angels r like they're mechanical since they have no emotions.
>angels literally look like robots.
>they live in a beehive
>we are animated by the flames of life and passion. You are animated by nothing but the empty breath of god.

You either haven't been paying close attention in later games, or don't know very much about stoicism. Stoicism used virtue ethics too, that expected you to once you became a sage have effectively no consideration for yourself in the equation of morality.

The goal of law = become a stoic sage.
The goal of chaos = become a nietzschean ubermensch.
The goal of neutral = halfway in between. Balance self actualization with duties to others.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pornography_in_Japan

>By Japanese law, the genitals of actors and actresses must be censored and up the mid-1990s so was the depiction of pubic hair. This type of censoring also extends to comics, video games, and anime made for adults. In the attempts of circumvent this type of censoring (and to cater to particular fetishes), actors and producers have featured subject matter unseen or rarely depicted in western pornography. Bukkake, Gokkun, Omorashi, and tentacle erotica are few uniquely Japanese genres known to western viewers. Lolicon and its contribution to the controversy regarding the regulation of pornography of depicting minors that don’t exist has been a major issue for free speech in and outside of Japan.

I vaguely remember seeing/reading something that said tentacle porn became a thing due to not be able to draw dicks. BUT A TENTACLE AINT A DICK SO SCREW YOU CENSORS
>>
>>85463596

It seems really odd that there's just places which allow porn, but only censored. Like you're watching it and beating off, but your dignity is preserved by the minor blurriness. Then a bunch of children walk in watching you beat off to it, but the minor blurriness that they probably don't even notice somehow protects them and they think its a wrestling match.

Uploading the SMT4 undub now, will come in two variants.

You need Gateway or a 3DS with 4.5 CFW (you'll have to convert to CIA yourself if that's what you're using).

Variant 1: Japanese audio, but English movies (good for first time players)
Variant 2: Japanese audio and Japanese movies (recommended for people who are replaying the game)
The reason for it is that the movies are hardsubbed, Funimation style. Jap movies have kanji subs hardsubbed into them, Eng ones have Eng text hardsubbed.

Should 3DS movie format be reverse engineered in the future, I'll make a v1.1 version of the undub using English movies but audio from the Jap movies, remuxed together. For now it's impossible.

There's no real Def stat as seen ingame, which is why Vitality isn't a stat. Rakukaja does give you a buff that decreases damage received though.

>Vitality is defense.
Levels are your defense stat, all Vitality is good for is 6 hp per point in vitality.
>>
>>85474724
The level grind DLC is out though. You can grind from level 1 to level 99 in merely 2 hours with it.
>>
>>85474764
I did not realize this, but it's still more than IV as I take the same damage from early level demons as I would later on in the game at 99.
>>
I just realized something. The reason you're collecting a lot of the shit you are in IV in tokyo is to bring back to mikado so that their paradise can get up to modern standards of living faster. Which is why you see monks using a computer later on. One of the things you bring back is a dildo. You are literally creating a world where the orgasms are neverending.
>>
>>85474792
So? lvl 99 doesn't give you money. You could sell the grimoires though.
>>
>>85474792
So I did good in avoiding it after going in for 2 battles? Expected some story DLC with a boss or something, fucking waste.

There's both story DLCs and grind/item DLCs.
There's two grinding DLCs (one for levels, one for money).
A couple of item DLCs (don't remember how many).
And also a few story DLCs (Two focusing on the angels, one focusing on Sanat, one on Ancient of Days (YHVH) and one on Masakado).
Someone please correct me if I missed something.

ATLUS once again shows they hate Europe. Which is why I pirated all their catalogue on 3DS except for Soul Hackers (only because it wasn't botched like DeSu OC and also had a retail release unlike SMT4).
And DLC was delayed in Japan and USA as well.
But yeah, Europe was supposed to get all the DLC for free already bundled with the game.

Anyhow since I finished SMT4 Undub for now, what should I undub next?
DeSu OC or SH?

The Four Virtues are basically the Four Archangels of Bayonetta. The big difference is that despite their appearance Angels are more organic and fleshy, while demons are more inorganic and made of metal/magma.

And Bayonetta has Four Creator Gods.

>>85478458

No they're not. Stop saying this. They have nothing to do with old testament designs. They're robots. At beast they were inspired by looking odd. Angels appearing as humans happened plenty in old testament.

Actually Christians consider the entirety of Old Testament to be fiction/metaphor.

Jews: Old Testament

I thought it was cool how the conversations seemed to get better in soul hackers as you increased the stat.

>>85479085
God never existed.
Old Testament is 100% fake butthurt written by jews to spite Egyptians (it's been proven by archeology and history that Moses couldn't have existed in the time period that Bible talks about him and couldn't have been brother to Ramesses the Second).
New Testament is probably due to Jesus actually existing but being nothing more than a regular man, versed in chemistry, biology and science back in the days when those things didn't quite exist.
He was probably a man of renaissance before the actual renaissance, and all the apostole accounts are just gross exaggerations of his deeds.

Kaneko wants his favorite fictional story to be the root of everything.

>>85479248
Nah man. Jesus is the true creator manifesting in his own way in our world to guide us from the vile Demiurge.

You seriously think I'd play Nocturne of all games like THIS?
I'd play it on the PS3 or PS4 if it'll have backwards compatibility, just for the better console, but no way in hell would I stretch the image or use a crap filter.

>>85480143
PS3 is backwards compatible on all models now, but Sony blocked the software emulator to force people to buy the PS2 Classics on PS Store.
People with CFW actually unlocked it and it has very solid compatibility rate (about 70% of games work).

Not at all, FF12 designs were great too, but I hated how the localization team completely fucked up and didn't rename the references to past major villains to fit with English ones.
For example, the Ultros reference in FF12 is called Orthros (because that's how he's called in Japanese), ExDeath is called Exodus (again because that's how he's called in Japanese) and the list goes on.
They just fucked up hard on the localization's part.
Generally FF always had inconsistent localizations.
I'm also mad that they never retroactively fixed Tina in FF6 (they kept the shitty Terra name in the GBA and Mobile re-releases).

Huh. All right. I'll just focus on the shop entries and not actually BUY every single fucking sword/armor/ring, but the Apps are another matter entirely.

Honestly it was the English localization team's fault. Fortunately I didn't know much English when I first played FFX.
A couple of years ago I had the chance to talk with the main Spanish translator of FFX and many other Square titles, and she said the English dub limited them in the localization, with Yuna's "I love you" as the most egregious example.

Localizing a game from Japanese to something other than English while keeping the English localization's voice-over must suck.
>>
>>85483150
If you really want more Formas then you should have the item find App equipped at all times, and maybe even one that increases your encounter rate as well. That combined with Enemy Searches should see you piling up the Formas in no time.

This. Even if they were guest designs, Doi should have drawn their in-game appearance, just like Soejima did with Kaneko's characters in P2.

Heck Doi did a better job of the P2EP cast in his own style in EPP than Soejima did with ISP.

So, I just finished SMT 4 (obvious yuropoor) and must say, it's been one of the best games I've played this year. I know it's been streamlined quite a bit, some things I like (especially skill system) some things I don't, but overall it was really enjoyable. Game got me really hooked on SMT after I had to quit on Nocturne thanks to PC related problems halfway through, three times now.

Anyway, what should I play next? I'm thinking of either Strange Journey or Avatar Turner 2 (played the first one). Also, I heard that Strange Journey has some problems being emulated. Is it playable or are there any gamebreaking things I need to look out for?
>>
>>85492009

I'd say Strange Journey. In the beginning the ROMs had copy protection where you got no random encounters and a thing where it erased your save file everytime you tried to load, but a patched version had been out quite quickly. I played through it on my R4 without any problems.

>>85492009
It's playable on No$Z00mer, which is what I'm using. Sure it doesn't look too good, but it runs super smoothly.

SJ will take you a while to get through though, because you'll get caught up in Forma collecting and Demon Searching to get on with the plot.

Ultimately, your call.
>>
>>85492225

I guess I go with SJ then. Still need to spend some time till the big PC games hit so might as well take on that clusterfuck of a dungeon crawler. Out of curiosity, what's the average time to clear it?
>>
>>85492441

It has some Etrian Odyssey levels of crawling, which I think is pretty awesome. I enjoyed it a lot.
>>
>>85492598
It was in no way meant as an insult. I know what I'm getting into, and I actually enjoy it occasionally as well. Though I need something, well, more casual after a while so I won't get angry at backtracking and RNG bullshitting.
>>
>>85492798

Then I'd actually not say Strange Journey because it is in many ways more hardcore than SMTIV.

I suggest doing Avatar Tuner 2. SJ has backtracking galore (for forma, unlocking new areas, and EX Missions) and RNG bullshitting (doesn't happen too often until 3/4 of the way through the game, and even then it can still happen if you're careless, as with all SMT games)

Soloing shit gets you 4x exp.
The more demons you have, the more exp is divided.
Hence why grinding is slow as shit unless you solo demons yourself, Highlander style.

Only you = 4x exp
You + 1 demon = 3x exp
You + 2 demons = 2x exp
You + 4 demons = 1x exp

And the game nor the manual tells you this.

I found that enjoyable, actually. As a silent protagonist you could imagine his personality as whatever you wanted it to be, but EP Tatsuya isn't the same person. Not only EP's universe Tatsuya had a different life since he never met his friends but he also carries the mind of IS Tatsuya who, regardless of how he behaved before, is far more focused on trying to fight fate and attoning for his sin.

No, it isn't mainline, you liking the game does not make it mainline.

SJ was a damn fine spin off. It's still inferior to the mainline though, other than having a pretty decent plot.

unrelated,
it's my OPINION that SJ's soundtrack is obtuse and dumb and tracks sound way too similar. which is the one real flaw of an otherwise great and on-point non-mainline megaten game

From a game dev perspective, it's one of those "the strength is also the weakness" deals, namely the kinda blatantly linear progression through the game. Personally, SJ is probably my favorite SMT title, but it's not one I can recommend to everyone. Also not crazy about the music, with the HOheHEHohOHOHIHOHEHAH that sounds like the contents of a shelf fell onto the synth/keyboard.
My first entry into the series honestly was Revelations: The Demon Slayer (Last Bible) followed immediately by the original PS1 Persona, then started checking into mainline stuffs. SMT 1 and 2 emulation came later, they were neat but certainly dated, 3 was quite fun, and started trying out most of the SMT titles I could around that time.

SJs music was made by a choir of Jack Frosts.

Although, it is a bit naive of me to expect SMTxFE on an English direct, it'll probably be shown off more at a jap only event

The only notable announcement they made on the JP Direct is a new Atelier game for 3DS.

WHEN WILL YOU IDIOTIC GUINEA PIGS LEARN?!

After slaughtering your precious "Big Sis", I'd have thought you would actually TRY to ignore rumors! But I see you're just as stupid as ever!

Highly doubt that there will be more SMT x FE news soon. Maybe in another half a year?

P5 news, on the other hand, I'm predicting we'll get in... roughly 2-4 months. Give or take 2 weeks.

I hope space marine and co ARE in smtxfe though.
