I assumed because Persona 5.

Currently playing through the original SMT, SMTIV, Persona 3 and Persona Q. Just kinda rotating through each one as I feel like it.

Also are instakill attacks useless in SMT1? I fused a Samael but its M Effect stat seems too low to reliably use its two instakill attacks.

Most important things for mainline SMT games: Buffs, debuffs, weaknesses. Make sure you resist the element the boss throws at you, have not one demon in your party that is weak to it. Also, buff and debuff the shit out of yourself and the enemy. Then you should be fine.
>>
>>285568412
You can get it at the Junk shop in Ginza Underpass.
I'd argue that you'd better use the physical resist magatama in combination with the force negating Uzume, but that's up to preference. Still, don't forget the Hua Po for Rakukaja

Sure, if she has the buff you want why not. Maybe a better choice since I believe she has more HP, but Hua Po is more common since she's easily acquired.

Nintendo was going to shitcan the franchise if Awakening didn't sell well, and Awakening came out only nine months before SMTxFE was announced.

A mix of devil survivor and fire emblem would be neat. But the crossover is so bizzare it's difficult to guess how it's going to work. It's a good thing SMT has expanded into pretty much all RPG subgenres because I can't see FE adjusting to non-SRPG mechanics very well.

I'm not sure how they're going to do it, if they do choose to do it.

I've always liked them on handheld, and the dual screen shit on the DS/3DS is just top tier for immersion and gameplay. You know what puts me off JRPGs on console? Fucking repeated animations for every goddamn attack. I hated it in Persona 4 and I hated it in Nocturne, I hope they keep it on handheld, but with 3D exploration like SMTIV

Can we please stop this meme? It's okay, but calling it the best SMT game is pretty insulting to the entire meta series. Now that SMT4 is here it's in an awkward place where it's not as good for beginners but not good enough to warrant immediate playing.

Just my thoughts

It's not really the same because it's an SRPG, but a lot of the core mechanics like fusion are in it so it's not a waste to start there. Also has one of the best story lines in the series. I started with the vanilla version on DS so overclocked should be fine. IV is good too though.

You can ingest different Magatama's that you learn set skills from and also set your resists and weaknesses.

You get a manta, but I never used it. If you like bonus challenges give them a shot, though.

In Nocturne, you learn skills by equipping Magatama. These magatama give stat bonuses and resistances/weaknesses also. If you forget a skill you can't relearn it.
Demons learn skills by level-up, and you can pass skills to new demons via fusion.
>>

That one is a tough fight, but you're still right at the begging. If the fight is giving you trouble I'd suggest getting a demon of the wilder family for the 7 movement bonus or a demon with animal leg as a racial skill for move again after battle. It's one of the few roadblocks in the game

I have done that, that's why I say I've only just begun the game and also have little motivation.
I've no idea how they managed to break things in the euro version.

Imagine a Pegasus that comes from the sky and lands on Building 109 of Shibuya, Tokyo. I always thought that would be incredible.”
>“At the same time, I know it’s hard because of how Fire Emblem is. I visited many companies to express these ideas. When I went to Atlus, I was told that Shin Megami Tensei together with Fire Emblem is what I wanted. So, I soon said that to Intelligent Systems and started this very special collaboration.”

Pretty near the end of SMT 1 now. It's a great little game, especially for its time. And the soundtrack is baller
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8TCwi0z3BU

Thing is, now I've played 1, Nocturne, and IV of the main series. My personal ranking is
>Nocturne>IV>1
Keep in mind SMT so far is definitely my favorite JRPG series, and all these games I've played are better than most other in my opinion.

I just don't get why people shit on IV saying it's "easily the worst in the series"
Yeah it had some questionable design decisions, but it was a really well made game, and comparing it objectively with games like SMT 1, it's way better. SMT 1 has a super limited fusion system, a broken battle system, and an obnoxious map.
I loved the hell out of SMT 1, but I can't honestly say it was better than IV.

I'm convinced they're people who've played only Nocturne and/or SJ. Especially since they usually cite IV being "easiest in the series" when that really isn't the case. Also the only hard SMT is your first SMT.

It's most complaints about the dungeons or lack of Kaneko, which to be fair aren't unreasonable complaints. I loved how a lot of the dungeons were seamlessly integrated into the overworld, it's the only SMT game that's really given me a sense of exploration and, but when you enter dungeons like Kagome Tower and Lucifer Palace thinking, "ahh yeah, time to crawl some motherfucking dungeons" and they come off as blatantly unfinished, it sucks.

I wish Doi redrew all the new demon art at least, he's a better artist than most of the guest artists and it'd be a consistent style.

Not really. Both are awful in my humble opinion. And I'm not that guy that posted it.
Also Lucifer isn't Satan.
Also Lucifer has never been a loli, nor has Satan for that matter.
That's just a bad design, it's not fearsome in any way, and it's not really based on anything either, which is something I love about the usual demon designs in SMT, like Kushinada being based on a comb because of her backstory

>>285582963

So when kill Kaneko learn to draw feet?
>>
>>285583374
Actually the main problem I run into aside from the poor inates is their HP / MP growth as low level demons don't scale well and end up less than an equal level demon caught at a higher level (controlling for MP/HP types) Actual raw stats are insane because of all the stat bonus apps but they all die in one hit and it's impossible to cover ALL the elements on them so I need to have enduring soul on each of them as well as MP surge and ideally HP surge.

I didn't think the story was anything special. All SMT games are preachy to some degree, but SJ really went overboard with its environmentalism bent.

>>285587808
Are you letting their loyalty drop? Stop making them use moves that they dislike. Learn the different personality types and figure out which moves they like. Most of them are fairly simple - wild ones like physical attacks, kind ones like to heal, dumb ones just hate being ordered around. Once their loyalty reaches a certain point, they'll pretty much be willing to die for you. Use sake if needed.

Well Sumio is a spirtual being and has "been" several characters, including Garcian from Killer 7

Sumio from Flower, Sun & Rain carried around a briefcase at all times, as did Garcian (for different reasons)

Edo, the hotel manager, makes an appearance in K7 for a brief moment, and references that he "remembers" Garcian, alluding to that he is Sumio at least in some part

OH FUCK

MY BRAIN
>>
>>285594935
Kyouji's the descendant of a group of Chinese summoners who could control demons without COMPs, create artificial demons, and make pacts with powerful gods/goddesses and use their powers.

He refuses to die and just hops from body to body, taking on a new identity each time. The Raidou novel seems to sort of hint at there only ever being one Kyouji, meaning that he's just been hopping from body to body for centuries. In Devil Summoner, he's sort of the protagonist and sort of not - his soul accompanies the protagonists' and are technically in one body.

So they're kind of similar in that they've both been several characters, I guess?

I like Nocturne the most, I also like 4 and SJ though. So maybe I'm not irrational enough to answer your question.
Story isn't that important in Nocturne, but story isn't really important in any SMT.
Atmosphere is fucking great dunno why you would think that, and it has some of the best visuals the PS2 offered. The real key is that has really solid gameplay, it's one of the more central SMTs, it has press turn like IV, but it has actual dungeons like SJ. Both SJ and IV excel in their respective areas, but lack in the others. Nocturne is a middle ground that is solid all around.

IV demon designs were done by like 5 different people. And even then it was only like 20 demons.
How do people still not know this.
The vast majority of the 400 demons in SMT IV were just SMT II sprites though that Kaneko did.

My big problem with 4 was that too many of the demons were similar. I like that there were so many, but when you get to Tokyo you run into another group of starting enemies with basically the same skills and it feels like a waste of space. That and stats and stat growth became almost a non-issue with apps. Also learning every spell made the MC the most broken fucker around, and I think you should be limited for what skills demons can inherit (like things weak to ice not being able to inherit ice skills) to give demons more individuality.
>>
>>285596650
There is more than IV.
But having just played through SMT I there isn't really that much dungeon crawling in that either.
SJ is the only one I've played that's actually been focused on dungeon crawling.
Half of the "dungeons" in I are glorified cities.

And Nocturne had the luxury of having actual gimmicks to do in dungeons. The entire labyrinth of amala is way more complex than nearly any dungeon in I.

IV has the most spells as well as demons. For the most part all the demons have the same spells they've always had. They're actually on average more individual than they have been in older games. It's just that there's more.

>>285597437

>>
I just started SMT4, I'm new to the series.
Fuck, I need to git gud
>>
>>285597863
Sure there are lots of them, but selecting their skills just makes them less individual. Part of the appeal of SMT is that these demons are legendary figures with their own history that their skills and weaknesses should play into. When a Jack Frost can learn agi easily it just makes what the demons actually are worthless, they might as well have random numbers for names because it's all about min-maxing every one of them.

>>
>>285598691

At least that lets you feel that you're getting a kind of mastery over the game. I already like the style.
>>
>>285597863
>They're actually on average more individual than they have been in older games.
They're really not. In the older games, there was some limit to which skills a demon could inherit. In Nocturne, you had to reroll to get the skills you wanted (which was bad and I'm glad they did away with that), but each demon also had skills that they had absolutely no chance of ever inheriting if those skills made no sense for them to have. For example, clawless demons can't inherit moves that are related to claws; demons without eyes can't inherit moves that are related to eyes. In SH, each demon had an "affinity" for certain skills and a priority list, meaning they would always inherit the skills that they are the most compatible with.

SMTIV's fusion system allowed for a lot more flexibility, but the results were that each demon was a lot less unique.
>>
>>285598362
Don't put points into STR.
Fuse often.
Save often.

>>285598369
I see what you mean. I personally am just glad they revamped the system from Nocturne. But I agree that it's almost too free form at this point. It's an unfortunate trend that's been around since Persona 4, where basically every persona would automatically learn a skill that canceled their own weaknesses every single time. Then they added in the free demon trading skills and all hell broke loose.
>>
>>285598362
Until you get some decent demons, like past the first or second dungeon, SMT is pretty difficult. After you get fusing or get some higher leveled demons you'll be cursing right along.
>>
>>285598824
mastery isn't really the issue though. it's having limited resources and options

i've played a ton of SMT games and am generally really good at them but I was dying often in naraku

I meant that it was possible to individualize demon's more. But you're right I wish they didn't just let loose the flood gates and give you entire control.
It was easier than ever in IV to have a dedicated healer/buffer demon and they didn't need to be daisobro

So having 6 STR for the whole game is a good idea?

That place has been dead to me ever since they got their own dedicated shitposters.

Sometimes I remember the good times and miss it a little, but then I actually visit and see them throwing fits over completely off-topic garbage.
>>
>>285599451
Pretty much yeah.
Also stats don't actually cap at 200, it's just the limit that they show.
But Basically every skill is worth except STR.
But if you wanna go mag, then ignore dex and vice versa.
Luck is actually useful as well.

>>285599451
the strength incenses will keep it at a level thats not totally pointless

It's like going to /a/ to get a recommendation.

Reposting my SMT2 questions from the General since it moves slower than Isamu's world:
How do I know if I'm underleveled or not?
In the Coliseum right now, heading to fight the Anti-Messiah, and fighting Beetlegeuse clowns is pretty much guaranteed death.
Chris the Car is also terrifying to me.
Level 20 at the moment, Beth is 25.

Is money going to become easier to come by?
If not, will it get easier/cheaper to revive my Demons?

There's another version with more buildup in it but I prefer it to be crazy from the get-go

I'm just starting SMT 2, but there were a few times in SMT 1 where I would just check the level of a boss I was at online to see how I was doing. I don't really know of any way to see otherwise, other than analyzing demons you random encounter then trying to be a level or two above them.

That's what I read it as, too. Didn't realize what it actually said until people started posting songs.

>tfw just beat SJ with the chaos ending

Holy shit Pillar Zelenin is a bitch to fight. Time for the Raidou games I guess.

See, I just took your advice and went to go Analyze that Beetlegeuse guy thats been giving me hell, and it just says No Data.
My assumption is that this is because I have not fought him upto this save point, but if I were to fight him, I'm gonna die.
Nice game dotards.

After playing through SMT I for the first time, I was so blown away by the music. It's so god damn good for a SNES game.
The only downfall is that SMT 1 doesn't have nearly the amount of music any other game has. But it's all great.
>>
>>285601693
Yeah think you gotta beat the enemies to get their data. Just beat up on some other demons. All their levels are going to be similar in the same area. But if you're struggling with him it looks like you're underleveled regardless. Fuse some demon's and level up a bit. Have you been skipping random encounters?

I wish they hadn't stopped hiring Masuko for the mainline series. The guy is amazing.
