You fucked up. Nice going, now this thread is dead before it even starts.
Depends on my mood which I like more
They'll join in anyway so make them feel comfortable
Where's aspect raidou?
Probably waiting for more personages to show up
The OP needs to trigger it.
trust me I made it
Just no fucking pierce if you're going for TDE, I keep him anyway though.
guess it makes sense why he hides his neck then.
Nigger, these designs were made by Kaneko himself.
Even Marie is better.
Do you think they'll have Lucifer do something big in SMT V to make up for not putting him in SMT IV?
Oh, but they were used for DMC3. Pretty sure the deal was made after Nocturne, where they included Dante.
>for not putting him in SMT IV?
You fookin wot?
Maybe. We'll just have to wait and see in 15-20 years.
Will I like Nocturne or Raidou if I didn't like the gameplay of Persona 3 much at all? I always loved the demon negotiation stuff people seem to mention about, managing a party, and buff-centric combat that people talk about, but I'm not even sure what games these correspond to. SMT has so many titles that I hardly know which has what mechanics. Thanks in advance, /v/.
>Physica for true demon ending
>magic for everything else
>Lu and ag for the lulz if you feel lucky
get 99 magic quickly and get "last word" + magic buffs and defence de buffs to eat boss fights
Probably my favorite demon. Use her in whatever games she's in. Not a fan of how SMT4 went with her old design though, the Nocturne one is more unique.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the demon conversation lines
Is that meant to be Son of Man?
Nocturne or old one?
>These Jack/Black Frost scenes in DeSu
Can't believe I missed these on my first run of the game. It's also nice that Keisuke isn't dead this time around I guess.
Matador's probably the hardest boss in the game IMO, in terms of how well-equipped you are to deal with him at the point you fight him. Protips:
- Fuse Nozuchi, or any other demon that nullifies Force
- Buy and equip Hifumi from the shop in the underpass
- Try and get a demon with Media, or for the love of god at least have something with Dia
- You should have a Dekaja Rock or two, sic 'em on him when his Agility is at maximum
- Use buffs, faggot (he can remove negative buffs on himself, but I don't think he can remove positive buffs on you)
He can still ravage you off Andalucia+crit, but if you do some or all of the above it should at least give you an edge.

All of them are shit tier
Come back when they get this BUFU
Anyone else pick up Quantum Devil Saga?
I finished it in one sitting and it kills me having no idea when the other volumes will be translated, if at all.
Plan on it, but still never got around to playing DDS yet. Kinda afraid that if I read the book, it will kill all motivation to complete the game. Only this considering how long and tedious jrpgs can be.
Best girl in SMT spin-off
SMT4 was my first and I just finished it today.
Went law. That could've gone better. Gonna go through NG+ for neutral, hopefully I don't fuck up my math and end up just out of it
I shamelessly used the DDS glitch to bring matador with me. Hola amigo.
I'll admit that Haru was easily the hottest DeSu girl, but as far as best in a spin-off cases can be made for Nemissa, Maya, and Ulala.
DeSu was my first, I only just completed it a couple of days ago.
I can't imagine that this game feeling complete without the 8th day routes. That Belzaboul and Belberith fight on the Yuzu route were fucking great, not to mention the song they added for the final boss.
Also best demon
>Please try to keep waifuing to a minimum
I fucking loved it. Delicious character interaction everywhere. Serph having a personality and being in his head as he tries and fails to resist cannibalism is a pretty different experience from the game, where he accepts the situation a little too easily.
The one complaint is that the Harley battle was a little awkward to me. It was the one point I felt like I was reading a video game book rather than a stand-alone novel.
Is it harder to fight Beelzebub in SMT3 or DDS? I managed him in SMT3 without much trouble, but my friend seemed to have a lot harder time of it in DDS, and neither of us has played the other game so we can't compare.
I'd still wait until after playing the game to read QDS, but the translator said that their stories branch off significantly from DDS. In just the first book, somebody who died in the game survived, and I'm eager to see how this changes the sequence of events.
>not getting Neutral on your very first playthrough, without a guide, choosing only the choices that reflect what you would actually choose in that situation
So with lucifer gone when SMT 5 comes out and this guy is the leader of chaos would you convert.
Just because he wasn't in SMT IV doesn't mean he won't be in SMT V!
You just have to believe
>Doesn't have one neutral demon in his party when his alinement is neutral.
Good work Skippy.
Trying to do this on Nocturne but im worried.
Kagutsuchi said he cant see my heart.
I'm scared of getting the Demon ending.
I have two saves:
One for this unknown path and the other for TDE.
No need to worry friend
Half the fun of playing the game the first time through is seeing what alignment your choices get you
After the first playthrough you can worry about getting the alignment you think you like best.
Just started DDS, and I was wondering what stats I should focus on? I was thinking of dumping most of it into STR, because that pink-haired chick seems like she already has tons of MAG points just after clearing the Vanguard base
But i dont want to be a Demon.
I'm a bit of a lawfag.
>tfw i thought i had gotten the Yosuga ending.
Just started Nocturne, my only other SMT experiences were a few dozen hours of P3, P4, and SMT1.
Is this game overrated or is it really da bomb
Face it, Anon: beneath that Lawfriend exterior lies a repressed demon that's just waiting for a wurld of str
you've been lying to yourself your entire life
What worked great for me was having Serph as magical damage and vital buffs like Voids, a physical nuker in the middle, and Argilla at the end for healing/support.
I've also seen other people say magic is best for Serph. Like in this very thread.
Why is there no Law alignment?
> Hikawa a shit
I wanted to join Metatron and defeat the big evil.
Also why did the seraphs help Chieki?
Why would they assist someone as foul as that woman?
Legion is so damn funny looking.
For some reason my brother is crazy for him, and hasn't even played any of the games.
I tried playing P3 and P4 yesterday and i couldn't
Nocturne's combat system is so superior its not even funny,it ruins P3 and P4's combat.
Yosuga is the Law route, basically. It's more Dark Law, but still Law nonetheless. It calls for everyone's complete submission to the rule of the strong, with no free will permitted for anyone, which is in contrast to Chaos where they want the strong to constantly challenge the strong to defend their right to live whatever kind of life they want. Rule by the strong is still rule, so the Angels supported it.
I think it's pretty good. Personally I'd say SMT II > SMT I > SJ >>> Nocturne >>> SMT IV
>I wanted to join Metatron and defeat the big evil.
It was the same with me. He just fucking appears with the best song in the game. I had this urge to follow him
Then when you defy him and fight him, he is definitely the most intimidating boss in the game.
I know his demon form is shit but he is in the game
If i were to do something evil it would be to make myself the absolute one.
Everyone would be weak except me.
Because i'm strong i would control everyone below me for my purposes.
I have yet to fight picture related.
Fighting Metatron was something i didn't want to do.I did it because i'm hoping i get to betray and defeat picture related in the final fight.
He was intimidating.
How would you say DDS fits in? I think I may have played 5-6 hours of DDS1 a while back. Seemed cool as hell.
Bearit with me here.
Musubi - Neutral
Shijima - Chaos(?)
I thought Shijima was law.
>Have Demonica L as one of my party members from the start of the game on SJ.
>Started off pretty weak, but his stat growths were great (High VI and MA meaning he could take a massive beating with a huge health pool, decent physical stats to boot).
>Get a lot of really nice abilities on him, manage to fuse Grand Tack to him later on turning him into a complete monster.
>By endgame though, his lack of innate nulls/absorbs finally caught up with him, along with the fact he had no support abilities beyond that one single target full heal.
I'm sorry demoinca bro, I wanted to keep using you to the final boss, but she just wipes the floor with you in the party. At least your null nerve and mind made you great against status effects though.
>My face when I went from P3 to Nocturne to Persona 4 and didn't give a fuck
Nocturne fags overrate the hell out of that system I swear to shit. (Boss) Enemies are more threatening because they have more turns and are more attuned to fuck you proper if your element isn't set right but beyond that it's the same shit.
>I have yet to fight picture related
At that point, it's not intimidating because you most likely have pierce, focus and friekugel, so he is easy.
He does some pretty fucking scary shit though.
No where near as cool as Metatron descending from the heaven in ray of light and unleashing biblical phrases at you.
>tfw no junpei bf
>tfw i have none of those skills
Metatron whooped my ass for some reason.
Our second battle i was able to destroy him.
Former picture related is more symbolic to me.
I just want to beat him
He had great friends that showed him how not to act.
The Reasons aren't necessarily supposed to be representations of the classic alignments, they're really supposed to be their own choices. It's just that Yosuga is really the closest thing to Law in the game, though in a way that makes most Lawfriends a little bit uncomfortable.
Great games, just not something that really fit in a ranking of the mainline SMT games.
I had none of those when I fought Metatron either, and he was probably one of the hardest bosses for me in the game.
However when I decided to fight Lucifer, I made sure I had everything done before I set off, so I had all the best skills and the demons I wanted.
You shouldn't have Pierce before the Metatron fight, since Pierce is your reward for descending to the bottom of the Kalpa and Lucifer unlocking the full potential of the magatama he gave you.
Duhh... Ice? Nah, that's stupid. MAN THIS GAME IS HARD!
Not that guy but DDS is my favorite MegaTen game. It has good combat with Press Turn while also having strong story and character presence. Personally, the bare-bones narrative is what prevents Nocturne from being a favorite game for me, but I know that some SMT fans actually prefer it that way.
Also there's no demon fusion which is a deal-breaker to some, but having played 5 hours, you know that already.
One of my favorite games, but I almost stoped playing near the beggining (at Ikebukuro) because I lacked motivation from the story.
It really picks up at
Obeliskthough so I glad I didn't drop it.
>beat nocturne and strange journey
>get a little into tokyo
>losing interest fast
i hope this gets better
Been playing since Persona Revelations on the PS1, with Nocturne as my first non-Persona game when that came out, but my favorite remains DDS 1+2.
And I'll always be thankful to whoever made the decision to put in "Danger" for the intro for DDS1. It introduced me to a band I still enjoy and listen to to this day, and it blows the original japanese intro song out of the water.
Maybe we can work on that poor motivation of yours?
Tokyo is where I regained interest until the end of the game, it was such a cool change in atmosphere. I don't know why people suddenly get bored when they reach an underground tokyo with all that shit to explore. Not to mention being able to start fusing cool shit.
Same happened to me. I got maybe 30 hours in with the help of a guide book that came with the game. Guide out of pages and haven't played it for a few months now. Really want to get back in, but interest is just lost for now.
I dunno man, she was pretty nice but that chick wearing the blue dress in SJ was undeniably the hottest.
When will get a family portrait of Louisa, Hikaru, & the caretaker women together?
Strange Journey style dungeons for Persona 5 pls
Best demon is Metatron
It is viable but use dex not strength. Dex gives you physical moves more damage.Str is only good for regular atk which is useless
>best demon is metatron
>Implying Metatron, True Servant of YHVH isn't the best demon and husbando
I bet you kiss Mastema
>If you want to go physical, go for DEX. STR is useless.
Mother fucking shit i already put the majority of my points into STR already man shit
though why is DEX better that STR?
Str gves like i think 1.2x to phys moves while dex gives 1.5
Not sure why they decided to do that but whatever
Persona Q has different battle themes based on which protagonist you choose.
Which sounds better?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=454IG6mfiK8 <- Persona 3 Version
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNoqBPlOvZg <- Persona 4 version
I got P3 FES yesterday, this is my first SMT/Persona game. It's pretty fun, and i'm enjoying more than i thought i would because i used to hate jrpgs when i was a kid. I'm on floor 14, i think, but it still feels like an intro level or a tutorial stage. When does it pick up?
Why is Persona usually treated as the only spinoff of SMT? It's almost always "I like both SMT and Persona" or comments similar to those but they never mention other spinoffs like Devil Survivor.
I like the chorus in P4's version better, but P3's version has better build up and overall feel.
Seriously? At the 10th floor, i think, there were 3 giant glove guys that raped me like twice, until I looked online and saw that orpheus' "bash" was the only thing effective against them, and then the whole fight took like 50 seconds. I don't really know what to expect from a jrpg, so maybe i'm just not used to how the games are structured
The mainline games involve taking advantage of buffs, debuffs, status effects, instant kills, and weaknesses
You can get by in Persona 3 and 4 easily by just fusing Personas that cover some weaknesses while having some buffs though.
It's because Persona is the most popular by far, and that it has an overall tone different from the rest of MegaTen. There's a good amount of people who have only played Persona and ignore the other SMT games, while I think that most people who play things like DeSu and DDS are also interested in mainline.
I did most of them by myself but there was one that broke me. I looked it up.
I felt so dirty.
Definitely the hardest boss in the game.
Seriously, I was about to use a guide from the start on that dumb mini-game because I wasn't in the mood for a high-condition side game, but "nah, I should play normally, but I just really want to see which magatama it is though."
...It was easy, then around the levels near the tens I got stuck on many inbetween on for over 6 hours. I was going insane, then I gave into the guide.
It was only a stupid ice magatama...
fuck that game.
Don't let him fool you
Demiqua is a cold-blooded killer.
Alright, let's hear it. How many of you were fucking atheist fedoracore faggots and told Nanako that her mother was rotting in the ground?
How many agnostic pussies forced a child to deal with your pansy doubts by telling her you didn't know what happens?
How many good Christian gentlemen reassured Nanako that her mother was in Heaven?
Depends on if they're even available or not, but I always try for at least one of Hitokonushi, Ongyo-Ki, Huang Long, Murmur, Eligor, Titania, Fafnir, or Jack Frost.
One I took by far the longest on though was Zeed even though he became completely useless come the endgame.
SMT could really use a cute genie girl demon.
I think the last time Djinn was used was P4.
Just trying to think of good ideas for Kaneko's next set of masterpieces should he ever try to make a whole new generation of demons.
I'm not even religious but if a kid asked me about their dead mother, I would tell them she was in heaven every single time. You tell a kid that there's no afterlife and people just rot in the ground, they grow up to become those all black wearing emo faggots who cut themselves.
You let the kid grow up and decide for themselves what they believe.
you had to talk shit didnt you
That's weird, your image isn't loading. It must not be important.
Anyway, like I was saying, Pixie is too pure for porn
Santa Claus and Krampus.
Sventovit is already in Majin Tensei II but since he never had any kind of actual art, let alone a modern design, he'd make for a good new major boss or something.
Ah, denial. That's only stage one of realizing you're waifu a slut.
>4chan is a den of porn and assburgers
I left the thread because I found out how to play strange journey without hurting my eyes and I come back to people thinking metatron is good
Nothing, I just found it funny that it was a first page search result for Pixie porn.
>Ultimax ends with everyone severely fucking up
>Persona 5 takes place in a new timeline
>only one person remembers the events of the previous timeline
