Demons aren't human, thus don't think of them as thinking with a humanized mindset, they are completely alien.
>>
>>255122893
No, They think like humans. Every single one I've met followed a very unique mindset.

Knockers are self inflating, Pixies are obsessed with humans, Koppa Tengu are laid back but also elitist, and Malchom are old fashioned, don't trust technology, and value knowledge.

Hua Po is a fucking bitch, literally thinks like the worst woman stereotypes.

>>255128379
Well, you know how there are 4 types of demons in that game, Law, Neutral, Chaos and the last one is Dark(?). Dark demons under normal circumstances are unnegotiable an can only be fought, but when it's a full moon you can negotiate with them with completely random results. That was the only way to recruit them.
>>
>>255128253
>>255128252
No.
There's no RNG.

During full moon you can't negotiate at all, they'll just end up attacking you anyway.
Otherwise, you have to decline a number of time, accept the right question, be at the right level for the demon and sometimes bribe them with mqcca, magnetite or some misc item.

Oh yeah I remember them. I usually didn't give a shit about them because I had that rare chance to be full moon and get a dark demon in a battle I already had better guys by fusion and shit
>>
>>255128636
There's RNG the moment there's not consistency during negotiations. Selecting "the right options" just depend of whatever RNG % you get by chance during that moment. Sometimes, during not full moon days, you would find there's not correct options and demons would attack you anyways just because you are unlucky.

I know because I played with emulator and I could prove that with quicksaves.

If your level is higher, the success rate is always higher.

If you answer yes and no to the right questions, after a few questions the demon will give some comment implying it wants to join your party.

That doesn't change there's a success rate involved. You could actually improve that sucess rate with skills if I'm not mistaken too.

And sometimes there was not correct answers, or all of them would be correct answers. The game just generate some random % of sucess to answers before the battle and you need to gamble your way until you get the "the demon looks to you with interestest" or whatever would the game say.
>>
Why aren't there more games out there that involve demon/monster negotation/capturing AND fusing?

SMT/Persona series, DQM Joker games, and the two Jade Cocoon games are all I can think of that do this.
>>
>>255129396
Completly different games. I hate items off in smash because is a party fun game. This is a RPG with a negotiation system that is based purely in luck. Completly different things.

Party based game is a good thing because who cares. Negotiation system that is completly random doesn't even make sense. Don't call it negotiation in the first place then.
>>
>>255129494
The questions are random but the answers are the same.

Answer it right a few times and you WILL get the choice to recruit them.

>>
>>255129674
The answers are random dude (at least Strange Journey is the one I'm talking about).

I mean, yes, the text is the same, but the chances to get it right or wrong are random every battle. The same kind of monster would response completly different to the same kind of answers. I know that's somehow "realistic" but at the same time makes the game a gamble so every negotiation.

>>255130126
Strange Journey because I played with emulator so I could prove this. Don't know about SMT4 because Europeanfag.

I was never really able to figure out the logic for most of the others so I just winged it half the time.

Also nerf fusion attacks because there's no reason to use anything else and you can win the game by spamming them.

The whole point is that every demon is 'different'. If you run into a pixie and piss her off because the answer you gave her didn't suit her, the next time you run into a pixie, the same answer isn't going to necessarily piss her off either.

it's like asking your mom what her favorite color is and then asking your dad and getting pissed off if they aren't the same.

RNG was probably introduced because demon negotiations were overpowered in earlier games. I remember going through entire dungeons in SMT1 without having to fight any demons because I had the correct responses to every demon memorized.
>>
>>255148670
Yeah, I had to stop playing Nocturne after only a couple hours because I was getting insane eye strain headaches from it, too.

>>
>>255148916
They should just make negotiations longer and give each demon multiple personality types, so you can chat and get to know them basically. And if they make you dig for the right answers, then you could still 100% it if you take the time, or just roll the dice by rushing and picking blindly.

But that'd be mad effort.

The cel shading holds up pretty well, however if you played the later the SMT games before Nocturne, then you've seen these designs before.

It's not Nocturne's fault but rather of Atlus' laziness at times

Suck it, lawfags.
>>
>>255149964
>how we've had the same designs since Soul Hackers
This is really annoying to me, because one of the things that was supposed to set Devil Summoner apart from mainline was that it got so many completely new demon designs that were meant to be Devil Summoner-exclusive.

Now mainline has both its demon designs and apps, and hardly anything makes the Devil Summoner series stand out anymore.

It's supposed to say "Do you want something with me, son of man?" but AGTP translated it as "What do manchildren like you want with me?".
A lot of negotiation options show up as soon as the text finishes printing, so they block the demon's dialogue instead of prompting the player to press a button.

Strange Journey is a pretty good entry point yeah. It's different from most SMT titles in that it doesn't take place in Japan, which I guess is why it isn't SMT IV even though it was spiritually labeled as IV.

Just remember that Neutral Route is hard as fuck

Aleph at least gets small breaks in between having to witness the end of the world. He lived a pretty okay life as Hijiri before things went to shit.

Avici is just constant, non-stop suffering.

Raidou's fate can be changed by the actions of others, in theory. If the worlds are recreated, all things can and will change.
Aleph's suffering is truly eternal across all the worlds beyond the beginning and ending of all time. And you know that what little good he had in his life as Hijiri and other incarnations is only there to make it all the more brutal when it comes crashing down again. And it will never end, because YHVH is a vindictive asshole.
That shit is rough.

I don't actually care about Raidou since, similar to Yu, his games treat him as if he shits rainbows and he'd probably be able to escape anything, but the standard punishment for failure is Avici, going off of the non-Raidou Devil Summoner game.

And there really is no escape from Avici. It's as eternal as Aleph's punishment, if not more.
>The hell that has the most suffering is the Avici Hell. The first suffering is uninterrupted time, meaning there is no rest. The suffering is continuous, there is no respite for even one minute or one second. The second suffering is uninterrupted space. In Avici Hell, space is filled with one or many persons. If there is a lot of space, a person will multiply himself until he occupies all the space. So this hell can be full with only one person. The third is uninterrupted suffering. One has to suffer all the kinds of suffering in the world. There is no hell which has more suffering than this Avici Hell. Such suffering is called unlimited suffering. The fourth suffering is uninterrupted grade, meaning this hell does not differentiate, whether one is a god in heaven, a human in the human realm, a hungry ghost within the ghost realm or an animal within the animal realm. If one "qualified", anyone can enter Avici Hell and receive the same treatment. The fifth suffering is uninterrupted life. There are numerous lives and deaths within a day and a night, and, between one life and one death, one suffers.

>There is no hell which has more suffering than this Avici Hell. Such suffering is called unlimited suffering.
So it's the Mary Sue of hells? But in all seriousness, there is no world or sub-world/dimension that can't be reset by a suitably high enough power. Aleph's fate could be changed, but that would require the Great Will to be destroyed or fundamentally altered to the point that it's no longer a tyrannical asshole, which probably isn't going to happen or the entire SMT series would just end.
And yeah, the fact that Raidou can just avoid that fate by winning rules him out of the runnings, considering that Aleph gets the shit tier fate for winning.

I also dropped SMT IV at that point due to other games, so I can't comment there. I can say that Devil Survivor is a solid 9/10 SRPG game. Each one has a few small flaws, but they're overall solid games.

>>
>>255163526
My point wasn't that Raidou had the shit tier fate. My point was that Raidou is the exception to the rule, not the standard, so being a Kuzunoha isn't exactly something anyone should want. I don't know why the Raidou games treat it as some sort of honor, but it's made explicitly clear that it's a punishment in the first Devil Summoner game.
>there is no world or sub-world/dimension that can't be reset by a suitably high enough power
The problem with that is that Avici exists outside of normal time. An eternity can exist within an instant, so even if someone strong enough eventually came along, it wouldn't matter. To the person suffering within Avici, they will never be able to wait for that day to come.

>And yeah, the fact that Raidou can just avoid that fate by winning rules him out of the runnings, considering that Aleph gets the shit tier fate for winning.
Basically I'm arguing that the new Kyouji has the shittiest fate, though. I agree that Raidou probably has it the easiest of any protagonist who isn't Yu.

Perhaps. For me it was just that I was deeply involved in this linear slog and suddenly had what felt like the weight of an entire game dropped on me at once.

Well that's more of a technicality. Considering that people are continually reborn, die and get reborn again, individual perspective is a little small-scale. If the world is reset, whatever state the person who was Raidou ends up as will be free of the suffering, or at least should be free from Avici. Whereas Aleph, no matter how many times he is reborn, will always get shat on because the Great Will ordains it to be so.
So on an individual scale, it would suck to be Raidou, but in the grand scheme of things, Aleph has it worse.

I don't understand why you keep bringing up Raidou when I said that this isn't about him, it's about the DS1 protagonist. The whole point of Avici is that it interrupts the normal birth and rebirth cycle, anyway.

"The Great Will" isn't infallible, either. SMTII, Nocturne, and SJ all show that it can be severely weakened to the point where it no longer functions properly. Demifiend even effectively stops the world from going through Conception forever in TDE, which eases Aleph's burden a great deal since his punishment is to be reborn and have to live through every Conception without being able to do a thing to stop it.

Man, you guys hyped Nocturne so bad that I had no choice but to give it a chance, just to be disappointed by it.

The game feels dull and lifeless most of the time, only picking up at some bosses (mostly the candelabrum ones). I ultimately dropped it due boredom. Still have to give DDS a change, though, is it any better?
>>
>>255169296
It really doesn't matter if it's Raidou or not.
>The whole point of Avici is that it interrupts the normal birth and rebirth cycle, anyway.
It may interrupt the normal cycle, but a grand reset would influence everything.
>"The Great Will" isn't infallible, either. SMTII, Nocturne, and SJ all show that it can be severely weakened to the point where it no longer functions properly.
You're confusing the Great Will with YHVH and its other manifestations. The closest the Great Will has ever been to being stopped is TDE, and even that was ambiguous and probably didn't happen.
And while TDE may have interrupted the Conception for all worlds (in theory, at least), it doesn't actually end anything, as the Great Will is still around and has to be fought, with Lucifer, Demi-Fiend and all the Chaosfags on hand to take him down. Which clearly didn't work, because SJ and IV still happened and the cycle commenced again unabated.

Nope, because Avici's whole point is that it exists outside of time and excludes the people within from being influenced by the cycle of birth and rebirth.

I really don't see why you think a single buddhist hell is beyond the scope of the top cosmic powers of SMT just because it's beyond space and time. I mean, Lucifer's entire hoard and the Demi-Fiend were unfased by the ending of space and time, so why would it make any difference?

Fixed that for you.
Need to learn you some stuff about power levels, man.

Also, Doomguy is great but he's just a normalfag with tech, like many SMT heroes

Because you fight Lucifer and he's got damage resistances out the ass. Everything hits for 20% or something. You need Pierce to bypass it and I'm pretty sure that pierce only works with physical attacks.

It's just a joke, m8. I like most protags.

>>255122601
The only SMT games I've played are a little of SMT1, Strange Journey, and PE3. Which iteration would be best for Demon interaction such as this? I really loved it in Strange Journey.

Thing about Hercules I didn't get is why they combined the Fates with the Graeae
>>
I really want to play an SMT now. I could replay SJ but considering how many I've gone through would be best to do a different one.

Only got a PC though. /v/ pls which smt should i emulate

Your Mastema pic makes me think you're a raging faggot

Yet your post makes me think you're an alright guy.

Well played, anon.
And I agree

Nocturne.

DDS is also good but its a bit different because no negotiations or fusing. Your team is composed of Party Members.

This series always confused me. Why are there multiple Odins? Thors? Athenas?
>>
>>255183576
why not?
>>
>>255183576
multiverse is a thing.
>>
>>255183576
That's like asking why there are multiple Pikachus, Zubats, and Doduos.
>>
>>255183576
Those gods aren't powerful enough to warrant being a single entity in SMT.

>>255183576
reincarnation
multiple universes
etc

i like how megaten, castlevania and the souls series handle using lore from the real world, the way they integrate it is well done and makes for great world immersion, because you already recognize some components despite the game taking place in a completely different world, among other things

If Demifiend's so amazing, why can't he take a shot from Dante the Demon Slayer has a nice ring to it don't you think?

Light hair pulling and light spanking are godlike. Holding a girl by the back of her head and holding her hair firmly as you kiss her, or when you fuck her, and that sensation as they melt under your touch... it's like viagra.

have you ever wanted a sandwichc and suddenly felt like you didn't want to eat it?

Is Nocturne one of those games where one could feel 'lonely'? I get that impression from what I see around here, I'm not a fan of main character solitary gameplay, especially after playing Persona games.
>>
>>255186657
Never.

Yeah.

I can't believed I passed on such an obvious opportunity.
When I get around to playing SMT II, that'll be his name.
