Is it just me, or are the characters of DS2 pretty much DS1 characters all over again, barring a few differences?
Abel > Bunny (Even more so in Break Record)
Yuzu > Io (Pretty clear)
Atsuro > Daichi/Fumi (Split between the computer person and best friend role)
Naoya > Yamato (Silver haired Chaos representative who knows more than he's letting on)
Misaki > Makoto (Soldier who follows her duty)
Mari > Otome (Nurse of the group)
Kaido > Keita (Literally the same fucking person)
Amane > Miyako (Oh, hey. A waif girl who's actually harboring a monster inside her body and is determined to save the world)
Midori > Hinako (Annoying attention whore)
And so on.
That just made me remember how much I like the first game more, although I think some of the characters are more different then you let on, for example, despite fulfilling the same role, Yuzu is much more annoying then Io, who I just found kind of bland, and Hinako and Midori have extremely different personalities and motivations. On the other hand, Keita is Kaido if you removed anything decent about Kaido and turned him into the blandest, most psychopathic cardboard cutout ever.
>Wants a world where the talented rule
That's pretty much one of the major themes of Chaos: Survival of the fittest.
If anything, it's Naoya who's less Chaos aligned. He just wants God to butt out of human affairs permanently, and is more than happy to accept a Neutral end.
Except a Meritocracy is based on you getting your position based on skill and strength. Incompetent people or those who cheated their way to the top will not be placed in positions above their power.
And as a shota shows, the strong will lead and protect the weak under them at the expense of their own life if needed. Chaosfag Darwinist are all "Tough Luck faggot".
Plus you can't compare mainline alignments with spinoff games routes, because it gets blurry as fuck because Chaos does not equal world of str in most spinoffs. Which is why the logic doesn't work.
Yamato was all about imposing order upon humanity and brainwashing them to acquire it. He's not trying to overthrow Polaris or anything.
That role belongs to Alcor, the real chaosfag who unlocks Asura and Lucifer through his Fate, and all fate demons are connected with the character.
Miyako even got Sandalphon, the loser sibling of Metatron in Break Record.
Hey smtg, is any of the SMT4 DLC worth buying?
I think there is one that makes the game easy mode? I'd like to avoid that, but if there is some DLC that adds more challenging content I'd be happy to buy that.
I know the "Ancient of Days" boss lets you get a skill called Spiritual Focus midway through a playthrough, it stacks with concentrate and triples magic damage (Yes, 600% total damage).
That would be pretty game-breaking but I never bought any of the DLC.
It's not the money, the DLC itself makes it easier, when you start any grinding DLC, it resets the RNG, so you don't have to leave the room. I was saying you might as well get the money DLC since money is difficult to get, and the full Demonica set is over a million
The grinding DLC is useful for getting fiends to spawn. It's also pretty necessary if you want to get the DLC bosses done with in a reasonable amount of time. I'd say pretty much everything except the armor DLC is good, although the armor can also come in handy for said DLC bosses.
Basically just get the boss DLCs and when the time comes, see if you really need the ability to grind up macca quickly/some kind of special resistances.
Like I said before, I'm having dinner with some old friends.
It's surprising... Most of them are already married, and almost half of them have kids. They're all showing off pictures of their families and it makes me feel left out.
Maybe it's time for us to get out of our "comfort zone" too.
Catherine confirmed for robot.
Yamato doesn't impose order. The ending makes it very clear his world is in-the-moment and you're free to act however you please if you're strong enough. It really emphasised that nothing was set in stone and you could enter strife at any time. You were living on the edge. It shows some will use their strength for good, and some just as much for bad. Don't use that kid's personal choice as an example of how the society as a whole is run while ignoring how it shows examples of clear darwinism happening as well. Also that "brainwashing" involves removing empathy from humanity to get his dog-eat-dog world.
I can't tell if you people are willingly ignorant or what.
Speaking of Yamato, a week or so ago, some people here were wondering about Yamato's eccentric behaviour in the ending scene of his Triangulum route.
After he becomes self-aware of just how badly he's socially retarded after multiple failed attempts at casual socialization with your friends, he decides to travel so he can discover the world and understand normal society better. That's presumably why he was throwing darts at the globe map and had clothes on his couch in the ending.
Also if you want, you can choose to say you'll go with him, which causes him to become ecstatic and blurt out something rather gay.
He's some sort of dark-law/chaos hybrid.
While he manipulates Polaris to get what he wants, his motivations are chaos-driven and the end result is a slightly more practical world of STR than the usual, basically a world of STR for real life, like Ronaldo was law made to work for real life.
Yamato and Ronaldo's routes were real-world politically influenced rather than the usual megaten religious fare.
>the "best friend" character is similar
Really? I've never noticed. Junpei and Yosuke are such completely different characters, as are these two.
It's not like every best friend character is some retard who does stupid shit all the time. That's never happened.
