Just started playing Soul Hackers a few hours ago. I'm enjoying it so far.
Which stats should I invest in?
>only one Bel in DeSu actually had the right name
>Belberith - Baal-berith
>Beldr - Baldur
>Jezebel isn't even an actual demon, it's a fucking normal name
>Belzaboul - should be fucking obvious
str, en, agi and lu seem to be the consensus.
I'm starting over since I put points into Ma/Int since I didn't know you couldn't use it ;_;
I was only level 10 but still kind of annoying since some fucker on /v/ told me "not to go pure str or I'll regret it..."
If SMTxFE is ever a thing, what should they do with the SMT protagonists, who are normally silent? I think they should give them personalities canon to that game.
Here's what I had in mind for SMT1 Hero:
make him turn his gun on himself. Because deep down he knows Heroine is happier with me. Chaos Hero would walk in on Hero at that defining moment, screaming "NO!!!" But it would be to late. The nerve bullet would smash his neutrality-filled head. No pain, only release. Chaos Hero would rant about muh power, much like he is accustomed to, hoping it will fix everything. But it won't. Not this time. The funeral would have a decent turnout. Law Hero, his autism still shining through even in the wake of this suicide. "I told him to try not to feel too bad..." He would sigh ass he looked down at the coffin. A single tear rolling down his face. Law Hero loved him. Of course Lilith, Pascal, Stephen and the rest of the gang would show. However, Heroine and I wouldn't show. We'd be to busy fucking in the spot where Hero ended his pathetic life. All the while, joking about how beta he is. As she gave me her anal virginity, Heroine said she didn't like anal, and never did for Hero. But she would do it for me. Yep, life in Tokyo would be great.
Unless I missed new BR content, I think their relationship is still unconfirmed, as her character page says on the JP site. I went back to fix some translations I did for the artbook and it says that while there is talk about Miyako, not even Yamato himself is sure about her and her existence/them being twins can't be confirmed with certainty.
Speaking of missed new information, can anyone fill me in on where her "Profile" section came from on the wikia? Was that based off Famitsu scans or is it someone's theory about her role in Break Record?
yes, it increases magic def but it doesn't touch negotiation, you're thinking of SMTI on that one
it's not worth it for the magic defense because endurance gives you enough raw health and agi helps you evade and stuff
and don't really worry about negotiation from luck since it's marginal as hell. this ain't SMTI style negotiation
Guy who translated the shit in >>89343154 here.
According to the Japanese fansite I got it from, no. Since they have info like the exact HP and MP of the bosses as well, I assume that they got their info directly from the game's files and that it's all accurate.
So it looks like In doesn't work the same way in Devil Summoner..
Okay I'm confused...
I'm the anon who was asking about Soul Hackers.
I just restarted and I'm at the part where you have to save Leader at the beginning.
Problem is when I get into the building I take two a step, Kinap tells me I can't return to my body, and I get a Gave Over...
This definitely didn't happen the first time I played this part... is my game glitched or what?
>Waiting for SMT X FE info
How many years have passed since we've heard anything other than "it's not vaporware"?
That sounds like the HP glitch.
The game has a glitch where, if die and then immediately start a new game with the same name, the game will register you as still being dead.
I still can't believe Atlus USA decided it was okay to not patch this shit.
so I have to restart AGAIN?!?
fuck my ass.
No, anon, it's not.
I don't even want to play anymore.
Tell that to the guy who ran into the variant that makes the game remember every chest you've ever unlocked and got stuck when he couldn't collect the mall key.
How do you even fuck up that bad when localizing something?
It's actually a really glitchy game.
The reset glitches are the only gamebreaking ones, but you'll also get text that runs outside of the box, and I think sword fusion descrptions don't display correctly either.
This is what happens when you hire /v/ to localize a game.
Look, it'll be okay. If I remember right there was enough space to name your character Hardcore Hacker, with your nickname Hack You. You're at the beginning, and this is a perfectly good name. Let's just forget the glitch that when I heard you succumbed to I laughed my ass off, and get spooky up in here.
I know I know, I already started over. Too late for that neat name though.
The worst part is going through PradigmX three times honestly.... Other than that it's not too bad.
I want to get Persona Q badly but I've never played 3 or 4.... and I won't be able to for a while.
Hopefully they put it on sale in the next few months. All my atlus games are digital and discounted! I don't see why this one shouldn't!
I hope they put out a straight SMT game with the EO engine. I haven't played Strange Journey yet, so I have that to look forward to after Soul Hackers, but I drawing my own maps :3.
I know! that's why I said the next few months.
They're going to do it eventually and $50 for a digital game is ridiculous.
I can't, my computer is boned atm.
What do you guys think is next for SMT after Break Record?
SMT V or a return to a sub-series?
I got her earlier this year already.
>tfw you paid close to her PO price
I still find it a bit of a shame that she seems to be a pretty cheap figure since I like how she turned out. I guess the anime just wasn't popular.
>Personafag or not, picked best mascot
So Girimehkala in SJ has Enduring Soul and Tetrakarn as source skills.
Which is a decent bonus skill, given that you can only pick one: Madness Crush, Fleeting Rain (both pretty much the same), or Charge (which seems to have indefinite utility, so I might have just answered my own question)?
Nevermind, Charge it is.
I hope this means maybe some of the megaten shit has a chance of release...
and i still want that final fantasy one
Let's improv the plot to SMT x FE, since we aren't getting real info anytime soon
›Once upon a time, in the faraway land of Tokyo
1 Kings 18 states that Jezebel had commanded that all the prophets of Yahweh in the kingdom of Israel be killed, while entertaining "four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and four hundred prophets of Asherah"  at her royal table. Elijah, prophet of Yahweh, had escaped Jezebel's persecution, however, and confronted King Ahab, demanding that all the prophets of Baal and Asherah meet him at Mount Carmel for a competition. The prophets of the pagan gods and Elijah met before "all the people", and Elijah had two altars set up, one dedicated to Baal, one to Yahweh, and a bull sacrificed upon each altar. The supporters of Baal called upon their god to send fire to consume the sacrifice, but nothing happened. When Elijah called on Yahweh, fire came down from heaven immediately and consumed the offering, whereupon the crowd fell to the ground, crying "The Lord, he is the God." Elijah ordered the people to seize the prophets of Baal, and they were all slaughtered on his orders. Jezebel swore to kill Elijah in revenge.According to the biblical accounts, Jezebel incited her husband King Ahab to abandon the worship of Yahweh and encourage worship of the deities Baal and Asherah instead. Jezebel is said to have persecuted the prophets of Yahweh, and to have fabricated false evidence of blasphemy against an innocent landowner who refused to sell his property to King Ahab, causing the landowner to be put to death. For these transgressions against the God and people of Israel, the Bible relates, Jezebel met a gruesome death - thrown out of a window by members of her own court retinue, and the flesh of her corpse eaten by stray dogs.Jezebel became associated with false prophets. In some interpretations, her dressing in finery and putting on makeup before her death led to the association of the use of cosmetics with "painted women" or prostitutes.
Hey, Jeff you fucking asshole, you still owe me 30 bucks for last friday. I'd like them back, I'm a little broke right now and have to buy my gf a christmas present this week or else I'm fucked
more like I won't be, if you know what I mean. I'm a man and I need my love.
So, I'd really appreciate if you could drop off by my place tomorrow, dude.
>introduce possible best girl
>kill her off right after
im a bit upset i guess
Go for it. The only time when Mazio would screw you over would be if you're fighting a group of enemies and one or two of them are immune to it or whatever.
You'll want Zionga eventually, and Ziodyne after that. You can't hold on to that zio forever.
>Zionga eventually, and Ziodyne after that
I know that, but I was wondering if I was going to fuck up if I was going to start finding enemy groups that cover each other's weaknesses. Thanks for the tip.
So, i just hit the factory area in SMT2.
Party is me, Beth, an angel and an ocypete.
I went around in Holytown and killed the king frost, i searched everywhere i could before moving into here, but there seems to be a new breed of enemies which simply have a shitload of health, that eventually kill me. Like Chris the car and Depth in the factory. Did i miss something..? new weapons? the guy in the shop only seemed to be selling guns. Guns dont even work on Depth!
tl;dl SMT2is kicking my shit in the factory, did i miss something here?
Naw, that's less of a factor than you'd think. It's easy to take out the enemies that resist your element. Plus a magic Flynn generally goes quad elemental so a lot of the time you can find coverage to hit all enemies.
There's a son of man named Absnerdity on twitch suffering through the beginning of SMT2.
The sheer sadness on his face is so delicious.
What's fun is watching another son of man's struggles you've already suffered through.
Watching that same person succeeding after their long struggle of trying to figure out how to win.
Is this what empathy does with a person?
Playing games makes more sense.
Or do you go to the cinema to look at other people watching the movie?
Also if that thing would really be that much fun, why not going to a friend personally? Wouldn't that be even more fun?
You could even suck each other's dick while you're at it.
People who deny emotions are disgusting.
Coherently suck my cock, you fruitbowl.
I never said I was any of those things. You shouldn't reply to thing so seriously.
>anons squabbling over the perceived autism in each other's posts instead of posting actual content or discussion
How is this not universally bannable?
>anon perceives the autism of anons squabbling over the perceived autism in each other's posts instead of posting actual content or discussion, next thing he does is squabbling over this observation while not posting actual content or discussion and wondering why that isn't universally bannable
How is this not universally bannable?
What really gets on my nerves isn't even the shitpostg here but the people who bitch about it as if they were something better.
I really hope you're always the same hypocrite. Maybe you're even the guy crying about metaposting and calling the metaposters the real cancer not seeing that he's a metaposter himself.
I want to believe that there is only one retard like that in this general.
So, I plan on playing SMT1 right now. Is the game full of bullshit logic that 80s and early 90s games have and I should use a walkthrough (Of course, making my own decisions when the time comes.) or can I just play normally without fearing a dead end?
I thought it was pretty straightforward actually in terms of what to do. You'll jsut get lost a lot. When it was time for the
decision with the nukesI was getting lost on the map the whole time.
Recarm trick if you want to cheese him. Other than that I have no idea to be honest. He's bullshit hard.
>metaposting about metaposting about metashitposting
>acting like you're any better.
True quality right here.
I'm actually glad to share this general with you.
On other notes, what is with the Bel shit in DeSu? Is it something straight outta Japan, or is Atlus USA knowing that the American audience is too dumb to do basic anthropological/etymological research on Wikipedia?
Or was it because making a connection between Abel and Baal is too much of a stretch?
Eh, I dunno.
Abel is pretty much just "herdsman" or something to insinuate that he kept livestock. The King of Bel business seems to be about Baal=Lord, and so it's chief gods and demons duking it out.
Yeah, it seems like they forced the Bel thing to make a connection between Cain and Abel reincarnation drama, and the demons fighting for supremacy.
Poked around a bit more, Bel is a legitimate Akkadian/Mesopotamian/Babylonian cognate of Baal.
Oops, a few of the accepted names of those demons, as used by Megaten/most of the western world, are based on 'baal'/are inherently semitic, and I took that for granted.
Eh, you learn something new.
Cam you read? Where did I say anything about hating metaposting? Also do you really believe that I'm as retarded as the guy I was calling out on his calling out others and at the same time not being aware of what I'm doing? Do you really think my "universally bannable" was even remotely serious?
I clearly said that the one thing I don't like is hypocrisy.
But yeah, try harder, retard.
Let me sleep please! I am a man, half human
I am tired as heart and person weaken
On the name of God! I will not crack. Can you hear them?
God! I will not crack. Can you hear them?
What's the problem exactly? Are you suggesting that they think you don't know those names don't usually have Bel in them?
It's the premise. Because someone makes a story about "what if King Arthur was a girl" doesn't mean they're saying he actually was.
Fucking hell why is DeSu Overclock so expensive for a Japanese copy? Been looking for a copy to go with my JP 3ds since I'm selling my pal one due to Nintendo being money grubbing fucks.
Cheapest I could find was 6000 yen preowned.
I know moon so I can get stuff early and actually get stuff like DQVII. Best part is my pal 3ds is a special type so I'll make a profit on it. Nintendo and their region lock can burn in hell.
There is no canon timeline except that one from the Raidou Book that revealed that the future Raidou is XL.
The fanmade timeline isn't accurate concerning a number of things and even includes speculation when it shouldn't.
SMT > SMT2 > SMT3. Then it's a threeway split
The first split is over whether or not Demifiend wins. If he loses, this creates the Failure timeline which houses P3, P4, and all their spin-offs. The second split is created when the Demifiend goes back in time. When he goes back to his childhood, he creates the Demikids timeline. And the timeline he leaves eventually becomes the SJ/IV timeline.
>full comp of new demons
>trying to fuse them
>every single combination is this thing
Holy shit, fusion in this game is pretty useless
>accidentally press yesMOTHERFUCKER
So is Soul Hackers more or less what Strange Journey is? I'm really enjoying SH so far.
Voicing acting is great, the music is great and the combat is fun despite being kind of lackluster on the animation side due to it's age.
And the demon negotiations are fantastic. Much better than SMT IV. Other than these two games I don't have much experience with the mechanic. I trust SJ has it?
please anon, take this Pixie as my thanks.
>Use Hama in Persona for the first time
>it works like a regular elemental spell
>SJ is also regarded as one of the best games in the series
I've heard as much. I just wasn't sure how similar it was to SH exactly. I was mostly concerned with muh negotiations.
Is there a skill type that Masakado doesn't drain? because I'm having trouble finding any. and do the skills "Aim Carefully", "Move Slowly", and "Prayer" actually do anything, or are they just there to make him look more intimidating?
Oh no, I love Shinji as a character. And
I just wanted an excuse to post some Eva pics
Now let us please hold a moment of silence for our European comrades.
>main character of video game doesn't show up until the last chapter in the very last page
He showed up a couple times in the first few chapters though. In dreams or some shit. Still retarded as fuck, but I guess it avoids the trouble of giving a self-insert personality.
Like I said, you should educate yourself. Gonna leave it at that since this isn't about true reincarnated goddesses though.
>They'll only be able to get digital copies too
He's basically Ashnard's pet project
Even in death, Ashnard was able to get Ike to change the status quo
>the goddess of law to restore her two halves
No he fights her because she turned every one into stone and was going to kill off every one because they disobeyed her. He did not want to accept her judgement.
On the topic of FE, its going to be really interesting when they and the cast of SMT meets up, like will there be law chaos neutral routes? Who do you get to chose to be your main character ? Will it have two stories one for FE and one for SMT?
>hate eachother at first
>eventually work together
>Lucina and Flynn wil undoubtedly be the most important characters
Who's the bigbad gonna be though? Lucifer? YHVH?
They said they where on track with it I still have hope.
Now if next E3 we get nothing, then I will be worried. There my two favorite Jrpgs franchise.
Why not all 3?The goddes of the FE universe will the megami they have to tensei if they go to the neutral route?
