The thing you people aren't admitting is that the reason there's shitposting is because there's not enough people here asking real questions, so a few people get bored. That + the occasional teenager. If you want the general to function for real, you need to actually get more people interested into the games, and / or into it. And you might meme about how its wrong, but this even includes recruiting people from gamefaqs and reddit. Its not like there's not autism here already.

There's no canon name to date. Part of this is because of the way the localization is handled; the protagonist in the Japanese version is from the Japanese military, in the US version he's a former Marine, etc. It's the one game I just rolled with my own name.

Newfriend here.

What's the best game to start off with? I've never played any Megaten games. I've heard Strange Journey is fairly good at providing the player with information on critical aspects and is gentle with the demon talk, and Persona 3 is fairly easy but still solid all around.

Opinions?

>>
>>96085729
If only there was something in the OP, that helped people decide which game they should play. That kind of information would be really helpful.
>>
>>96085729

SMTIV.

If you don't have a 3DS, Nocturne.

If you don't have a decent CPU, Strange Journey.

If you have a toaster, SMT1.
Persona has its own general and is typically for people who want less game and more waifu. It's pretty vilified in this thread, so don't expect unbiased opinions on it.
>>
>>96085729
Persona 3, SMT4, and Digital Devil Saga are probably the best starting points in the series.
>>
>>96086243
Persona isn't vilified here, feel free to talk about it. The only people that complain are teenage tryhards that want to fit in and maybe the 3 people that actually dislike Persona 4.

>>96088412
Yeah, they really needed that general to talk about a fighting game with dead online.
>>
>>96088780
Persona discussion is fine here as long as it relates to the actual game. That's like saying you can't discuss pre-2000 games on /v/ anymore because /vr/ exists, or you can't discuss mech anime on /a/ because /m/ exists.

I dislike Persona 3 and 4 and can't understand how people can unironically like those shitty games but I have nothing against anyone discussing them here because it's actual discussion unlike the shitposting which makes up most of these threads like almost all other generals.

Seriously, how can anyone like Persona 3 and 4? The gameplay is one of the worst of this franchise and the story isn't really that good that it would make up for it. Even the waifu aspect isn't great, S-Links are completely isolated, you can go out with all girls and it doesn't even have an impact on the story.
Shadows are probably the most boring enemies in the history of MT, there's no negotiation, the only time demons appear is those few seconds when they get summoned as personae (which, I admit, isn't that bad), dungeons are not even dungeons at all and in P3 they look almost completely the same for the whole game (except those on full moon) etc.
Yeah, I started with P3 and went on to 4 and really liked them because of the demons and freudian touch I never encountered in video games but after I played Nocturne and other games, I couldn't look at P3 and 4 ever again.
Please, I'd like to know how someone who has played other games of the franchise can still like them that much.
>>
>>96092803
They're easy and accessible, and people who don't have the stalk for mainline can just cut their MT experience short where you said "but". That's how.
>>
>>96092803
>freudian
Jungian, please excuse my Freude/freudian slip.
>>
>>96092803
I like them for the characters and the symbolism. P3 has a lot of references to Freud, so you aren't too far off, and P4 has quite a few references to Nietzsche. I can't stand Personages as much as the next guy, but the games themselves aren't too bad when you get past the dating sim mechanics (and honestly, I kinda like those too).
>>
>>96092803
Hey, do you mind taking it to /pg/? Thanks
>>
>>96093391
>P4 has quite a few references to Nietzsche
What?
>>
>>96092942
Yeah, like I said, I can understand people liking those games when they never played other games of this franchise, I was one of them but it seems to me that there are people here who still really like P3 and 4 and even claim that P3 is the best of the Persona series which I really can't get behind.

>>96093391
But the characters aren't even that good, the dating sim mechanic could have been done a lot better, it has no impact at all except persona exp and the gameplay really is one of the worst.

>>96093471
Pretty sure most of the people there haven't played other games, so yeah, I would. I'm sorry.
Only visited it once to see it with my own eyes, it expectedly wasn't that bad but I never felt the need to go there ever again.

>>96093696
Was wondering too.
>>
>>96093762
People like to be accepted. That's why word of mouth works. On the flipside, people like to be contrarian. If they can find the good in something bad, or vice versa, it makes them seem observant. That's why we have hipsters.

>>96093762
I play some games of both SMT and Persona and have /pg/ and /smtg/ open at the same time

>>96094107
That's cool. I think most of us do.
>>
>>96092803
If P3 was my first megaten I'd probably never bother with the series ever again. I was pretty hyped for social mechanics, too, what a disappointment that was. The music is cool, tho.
>>
>>96094107
>some games
What?
Like I said, I don't think /pg/ is worse than /smtg/ but I really don't want to read another general. Generals are full of shit most of the time, I'm glad that /smtg/ is one of very few I actually bother to check in regularly.

>>96094217
If P3 and 4 hadn't been my first, I probably couldn't ever have played through them.
I can imagine your disappointment.

>>96093762

Here's a quote from Nietzsche

"The pride connected with knowing and sensing lies like a blinding fog over the eyes and senses of men, thus deceiving them concerning the value of existence. For this pride contains within itself the most flattering estimation of the value of knowing. Deception is the most general effect of such pride, but even its most particular effects contain within themselves something of the same deceitful character."

The idea of "The Fog" was taken literally in Persona 4. All of the characters rejected truth, while constantly seeking it. Teddie was the biggest representation of this, since he constantly would seek the meaning of his existence, while the answer was always right in front of him. Persona 4 is riddled with this sort of literary irony, but it's often ignored by the fanbase entirely.

Plus, I could also mention how battling Shadow Teddie the day after the lesson about Nietzsche gives him the skill Nihil Hand.
>>
>>96094754
I think you're looking too much into it.
>>
>>96094824
Not sure if I am or not. The entire Persona series has stuff like this throughout it, which is something I really enjoyed about it. Persona 3 does something similar, except it's more-so based around classic Greek tragedy than anything else.
>>
>>96094754
Philosophers throw 100 parts fluff in with each 10 parts thought. That part is fluff. Sorry, anon.

>>96094754
>Plus, I could also mention how battling Shadow Teddie the day after the lesson about Nietzsche gives him the skill Nihil Hand.
I made a point of fighting Teddie before that lesson and he still used that attack.
>>
>>96095149
Really? I thought he only did afterwards. Guess I was wrong about that part then.

Actually you fight the two of them a total of five times.

First you have to beat them twice. Then you have to beat them after they fuse.

Also, there's a mission where you defend the Frost Five uniting and joining you.

And there's a bunch of demons released through spotpass each week for free, and can fill up your compendium even if you don't get all the ingame demons.
>>
>>96096623
And it'll still be incredibly easy casual shit because it's DeSu 2, I get it. Bragging about making the compendium even easier to 100% is a pretty shit selling point. Keep shilling for Atlus though
>>
>>96096718

Because he went to the very bottom of hell and found Lucifer frozen and wanted to be like Lucifer.
>>
>>96097315
Thanks for the meme response, he has Null Fire. It seems like it has something to do with it being grey.
How does a skill get grey? It would be pretty shitty if you fused perfect demons but some of the skills didn't work.

Thanks for answering my questions again. Did you play DeSu?
>>
>>96098414
Thanks.
What factors play a role? I guess Lucifrost can learn the skill only later on because it nullifies his weakness, but why Samarecarm?

why does Jonathan say his demons are a bit different if he doesn't even use any when he fights with you?

Gameplay mechanics =/= what actually happens. The game also implies that there aren't as many demons til the gate is opened. Despite there clearly being so.

He actually means his genitals.

>>96103082
But still, even if he DID use demons, what makes his different? Just because they're rare or something?
>>
>>96103195
He probably means that he only uses law demons, or angels. Since a lot of people may be indiscriminate in what they use, it may seem different than some others that you use. With zelenin in sj refusing to use demons til she gets given an angel to use, its not unlikely.
>>
>>96103296
But he wasn't in angel territory until well after Tokyo, yet he says that as soon as he can partner with you. Plus I'd say angels are more than a "bit different".

That's why I also said law demons. If they're actually alive and have personalities you could probably tell the difference fast. And at the very least game-wise you can fuse angels early on. If your demons are also your friends, you would expect people to want ones similar to them.

So basically all he's saying is "My demons are lawfully aligned"? That's a pretty dumb way to phrase it then; makes it sound like there's something special only his demons have.

Maybe this translate to them actually acting different in universe in a noticeable way that leads to them using different battle tactics. You don't know. The phrase certainly seems to imply something noticeable.

>>96103960
After I played the first one when it came out, I had a dream which was basically that + twewy + some time travel powers. It was actually the longest dream I ever had and it flowed like a real story that could have been a movie. The highlight (and only surreal part) was when agent smith wanted to betray the government, and so requested a fat chick to be his partner, and for their mode of transportation to be magic carpets made out of roast beef. She kept eating hers while flying, and so eventually fell to her death during the mission, allowing him to do his own thing without it seeming suspicious that he was alone during that time.

So SMTG, I Just got finished beating Hell biker. The fiends so far have been pretty average in terms of difficulty. I really only had a problem with matador the first time I fought him because I didn't switch my demon that absorbed force magic fast enough. I haven't really been grinding either.

The way they were built up I thought that I would have a harder time or that I would have to go for a more specific strategy. Does it get much harder than buffing/debuffing and spamming focus and physical attacks?
>>
>>96105092
Not really. Matador is probably the hardest because you have so few options.

The reason most people claim Nocturne is hard is because in most JRPGs, buffs debuffs and ailments are all but worthless. These people go in to SMT games with that mindset, and we all know where that ends up.

Nocturne is my favorite game, but I fucking love the idea of IV's world.
>humans using other humans' bodies to harvest drugs to stave off demons, even brainwashing kids to make ideal harvest candidates
>the ceiling over Tokyo causing a perpetual nighttime
>humans only thriving by surviving in underground metros
>the medieval kingdom of Mikado right on top of Tokyo, with an entirely different society and rules
>that sky tower
I could go on.
The mental imagery I come up with when thinking back on IV is incredible though.

It's impossible to miss stuff in Nocturne.

>>96142637
Don't forget all the backstory it has, like how we can see the result of how that Tokyo would have end up if the CDF's soldier went Chaos or Law instead of Neutral. That plus all the backstory and details you can collect through talking with random NPC's is great.
If IV did something right, it was it's worldbuilding
>>
>>96142637
IV's atmosphere and worldbuilding is incredible, and that's not even including all the little details they put in.

>nearly all the bosses have unique dialogue for the negotiation skills

Didn't sound like it, you implied that you either can give them the "valuable item" or not.
You can complain all you want, it's the same with Matador some people have problems and are really vocal, a lot don't.

Do the leaderboards in SMT4 matter at all?
>>
>>96173169
Only if you go neutral.
>>
>>96173169
No, it's just fluff. You need to reach #1 in the Neutral route but that's just by doing specific quests, nothing else.

I saw an image of Desu1 + 2, where Keita steals all the medical supplies, only to die from an infection.

So is this optimal?

Assuming >>96167934 is correct, you have no way to know whether they'll be thankful for your gift or see you as weak. I wish some hackers could get into the code and see what's really going on in this... they figured out the formulas for Fire Emblem, surely this can't be much harder.

>>96175507
You underestimate how crueler the God of Random Numbers is in SMT games.
>>
>>96175507
Try it out yourself if it is optimal, Jesus.
You assume wrong by the way.

>>96176092
Why did you call me Jesus? I don't get it.

I hope the ronde protag is in it.

I love you and you love me.

>tfw defeated Mastema

The world of Chaos is soon among us.
>>
>>96180973
Long live the Matriarchy!
>>
>>96180973
Yes, yes. Mastema is defeated. He is absolutely gone and there is no reason to check if he is alive. Continue on your way, son of man.

Hey. They're streaming SMTI in case anyone wants to watch. Channel flazkavacid

Speaking of the music patch. Does anyone know how far along it is?

The last time I played Persona Portable w/ the patch, some of the tracks sounded a little low quality.
>>
>>96182526
it's baked. it's done.
>>
>>96182803
But the quality of the patch fucking is garbage.
>>
>>96183107
Why are you surprised?
>>
>>96183148
I don't know. I just want to play Persona Portable with most of the original version's soundtrack.

Problem is, many of the songs in the patch sound like they were recorded with an MP3 Player from the late 90s.
>>
>>96183386
Another problem is that the Portable version has less songs. If you really want to listen to the original version's soundtrack, you either have to play the original or listen to the OST while you play PP without sound.
I never understood the people here praising the patch because its shittyness is on par with the remix.
>>
>>96183916
You realise its way too difficult to make the patch better right? Seeing as they have to work within the same filesizes of the original songs.
>>
>>96185312
If it's way too difficult to bother making the patch better, why bother with producing such garbage at all?
Well, I guess some people were content with it, so there's that. Surely wasn't a lot of work anyway.
>>
>>96183386
Isn't it mono too? what shit.
>>
So I take it that everybody hates midori?
>>
>>96188876
Mostly because of her VA. I finally gave in and turned off the voice acting because of her. As far as actual character goes Keisuke is a much bigger shit.
>>
>>96188876

No. She's a little naive and loud, but she seems like a pretty reasonable person. And she's hot, and the sex would probably be pretty crazy.
>>
>>96188983
What about honda?
>>
>>96188983
>>As far as actual character goes Keisuke is a much bigger shit.
Nope.
>>
>>96189110
I'm only on Day 6 and haven't really interacted with him much.
>>
>>96188992
More like crazy boring. She's a 15 year old camwhoring cosplayer. Like most camwhores she probably doesn't have a single clue about sex aside from "cock goes where?"
>>
>>96189110
Honda just wanted to save his son.
>>
>>96189227
You got to feel bad for the guy.
>>
>>96189335
Well no shit people act like they're 15 when 15. When dealing with characters you have to assume context, and scale up proportionally. If she made that outfit herself at 15, and in a bad situation is willing to help people and have fun doing it, she sounds pretty reasonable. She might grow out of naivete and being eccentric.
>>
>>96189406
What I meant was I haven't noticed anything particularly terrible about him. All I've gotten about him so far is he's willing to go through hell for his son.
>>
>>96189363
His suffering is kind of entertaining.
