>There is nothing good about dying to some random encounter because of shitty luck or because Walter or Jonathan went full retard and used a move they shouldn't have. There is also nothing good about every single boss fight in the game ending before you feel like they've even begun.

The fast paced combat is pretty much my favorite gameplay element in SMTIV. I disliked the new fusion system (due to no Mitamas) though.

I did enjoy the overall story and world direction though, returning to humans attempting to survive among demons and such, rather than just the demon worlds from Nocturne and Strange Journey.
>>
Is there something like a story synopsis for SMT1? Combat being so easy "broken" (zio, nerve bullets etc.) ruins everything for me, but I still want to know what transpires in the game so that I can get maximum satisfaction out of SMT2.

You're worse than a casual. Go look at the wiki.

Implying it matters. You just get to see "Hero: Died alone in a cave" and that's about it. Maybe a few jokes like getting High Pixie instead of Pixie, and getting Kalki instead of Vishnu in order to show that there has been a passage of time since the first game.

SMT2 doesn't reference SMT1 much at all but if you really want to know:

>america, controlled by god, wants to nuke japan
>some chaosfag in response uses demons to take over japan since the military refuses to fight back against america
>you're some kid in the middle of all this, who got the demon summmoning program via email from STEVEN
>you meet with law hero and chaos hero, your mother is killed by a demon
>you meet with your waifu, trying to stop the nuking and the chaosfag's invasion
>you fail, japan is nuked but you and your buds survive due to your waifu's powers
>you awaken in nuked japan 30 years later
>lawfags and chaosfags are in all-out war
>chaos hero fuses with a demon and goes full retard
>law hero is killed by a demon but is brought back by god and is implied to be brainwashed into full retard
>waifu does whatever you do
>lawfags build a gigantic cathedral to summon god, chaosfags want to take it over as a monument to the ancient gods
>chaosfags invade cathedral
>the founder of taoism leads you to the cathedral
>god floods japan, killing everyone who wasn't in the cathedral
>you fuck up chaosfags and lawfags
>you kill law and chaos heroes
>yaaaay neutral end, humanity gets to live independantly and prosper fuck yeah, and you get to play adam and eve with your waifu
>oh woops, after you die the lawfags take power, chaosfags are oppressed, and SMT2 happens

Well, the odd prevalence of Hindu goddesses might make me wonder if they might take consorts if they felt like it. Their husbands are too busy anyway and probably can't say shit as long as they still get dicking priority.
>>
>>88579805
But in the actual context, I doubt they would ever touch another man because they're supposed to be infallible examples of socially acceptable gender ideals. The goddesses would be pure for their hubbies in order to teach women that it's expected of them too.

No, not as a rule that is stated in exposition. Just an assumption. Why bother if it doesn't make him suffer? Aleph or not, I still think there was that bit with Hijiri where he realized every that he could have done, but only just before Isamu kills him.

Did you ever watch your older brother or anyone else play vidya when you were younger? It's kinda like that. Watching someone play fun vidya and talking about it. It's cozy. I really don't know how to describe it. I'm not big into the LP thing, but streams are nice because you can talk in real time to the person playing, tell them hints, see them react to things for the first time.
