I just found out there's a secret area in Megami Tensei 1 called Hades and I don't think I did it. Do you get anything for going through it? I'm literally in the room before Lucifer.

If I like Persona 4, will I like Persona 3?
>>
>>97790874
Probably.
>>
>>97790874
No, it's too edgy. You should just watch the Devil Children anime instead.

Don't worry about it. There's just a higher Fiend rate.

What are some recommended builds for characters in Megami Tensei 2? I'd imagine it's kind of the same as MT1 with the main character but how about the other two?
>>
>>97792976
Pretty similar. You can't cast magic ever, Hiroko is the Heroine and wants magic, all that jazz.
>>
>>97790789
Get fucked.
>>
>>97793150
>Hiroko

MT2 has a Hiroko?
>>
>>97794127
Oh haha I thought you were asking about SMTII

MTII still follows the basic shit though, you want strength and your friends want magic
>>
>>97792976
If i remember well you have to choose between the heroine or the friend so build the one that you will choose as a partner.
>>
Man, MT2 has a pretty great tutorial area. There's no real penalty for dying so the player can get a good grasp on most of the mechanics before being thrown into real danger and yet there's no hand holding. It feels kind of ahead of its time for what was an NES game.

>Get to Mem Aleph
>She oneshots my entire party on turn 1 with mother's kiss

It occurs to me that perhaps Neutral route was not the optimal route for a first playthrough. Is level 76 supposed to be good enough or do I need to grind more?

Any particular demons/passwords that would do well?
>>
>>97795932
If you are a coward and just want to finish the game
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeTRX9wt5Wg

If not, get the last enemy search and grind for a few hours
>>
>>97794365
I'm not that guy, and I haven't played MT2 yet, hence my own confusion. No worries.
>>
>>97796293
That's fucking hilarious, but I'd rather do it the right way.
>>
Has anyone played the translated mt1&2 rom on the SNES? Is it worth a play though if I really enjoyed smt2?
>>
>>97797316
Eh, it's fine. Not as good as the anime
>>
>>97795932
76 might not be good enough.
>>
>>97797316

They're pretty good. MT1 is pretty much straight dungeon crawling with hardly any story and MT2 feels more like proto-SMT1. Also the player character in MT2 has a fucking cape and robot arm so that's neat.
>>
>>97798790
Ugh, what a prep.
>>
>>97798790
What do you mean proto? Isn't the kmt version more advanced since it was updated and made after the SMTs?
>>
>>97798953
I think he means in terms of plot.

If SMTxFE does come to fruition, will it just be characters from the main MegaTen games and FE or could we see some from the spinoffs or even MT1 and 2?
>>
>>97799117
40% SMT 4 characters, 40% Persona 3&4 + Raidou, and very very maybe Demi-fiend and Strange journey
>>
I just talked to a Kobold in MT2. He said "Know your place before talking to me!" and then ran away. I'm getting mixed messages.

>>97799286

I can't remember, did they just show characters from mainline in the trailer?
>>
>>97799449
SMT I - IV, and If... were shown. No SJ.
>>
>>97799449
They only showed mainline protagonists in the character, but that doesn't mean more can't be added I suppose. But god do I hope it's only mainline protagonists and supporting characters I'm so fucking sick of Persona being everywhere
>>
>>97799286
>P3, P4 which only got a sidegame on 3DS

Since somebody asked this in /feg/

Have you played any Fire Emblem games since the announcement of SMTxFE?

Should I start over? I love my nigga Makami but I'm only at DANTE DA DEMON KILLER

So how do I grind for Law points in SMT4 again?
I wanna get Neutral but the Cynical Man's telling me I'm Chaos.
>>
>>97800107
I've always been meaning to, and even the announcement wasn't enough to get me to start one.
>>
>>97801723
Do the hunter tournaments and don't kill anyone when you beat them.
>>
>>97801723
If you're too neutral you could end up law or chaos.
>>
>>97800175

My hope is that ATLUS will translate SMT2 and If... on Mobile once they're done with Persona 5. Around then I imagine they'll need something to do.
>>
>>97801723
You're forced to get a lot of Law points in the infernal/blasted areas automatically. You kind of want to be chaos before entering the reactor so it'll balance out.
>>
>>97800107
Always been a fan of both SMT and FE.
Been playing Genealogy of the Holy War.

Nice, good taste.
>>
>>97801872
They have P5 to milk and make spinoffs of.

Plus there are still P3 spinoffs to make (Its obvious Arena 2 shaped new journeys to explore).

No SJ 3DS hurts my soul :/

Looks like it's law for me then.

>>97801713
If you fused your Pixie into another demon, her descendants are always at the top of the list when you go to do fusions. If you released her at the beginning of the game you're shit out of luck

Correct.
>>
>>97803286
There's more than one God.

And some of them don't like Law.
>>
>>97806209
But wouldn't a name based on hebrew necessarily in context refer to the hebrew god?

I suppose you could make an argument that mem aleph is part of the hebrew god though.

in what language?

>>97803286
>going law because of your name
>not being ironic and reject any ideals
Kazuya was the reincarnation of Adam, and he was the creation that DIDN'T disobey him, and he still went neutral
>>
>>97800107

I liked FE before smt, been playing devil survivor recently, it's a nice mix of the two worlds
>>
>>97808180
Devil Survivor x Shadow Dragon when?
>>
Have played neither DSS1/2 or Nocturne. Which emulates better?
>>
>>97811286
Both about the same: they use the same engine.
>>
Tarukaja also increases magic attacks, right?
>>
>>97811582
Depends on the game
>>
>>97811667
What about 3, 4 and SJ?
>>
>>97811858
3 nope thats Makakaja, in SJ yes.
>>
>>97812120
Thanks.
>>
>>97811858
>>97812824

the later games merged makakaja into tarukaja so that it effects both magic and physical damage.
>>
Why is neutral the only good solution?
>>
>>97816098
Because it isn't a solution, only stalling for time and embracing ignorance.
>>
>>97816438
No, I'd say that law embraces ignorance more than neutral. You know, because of the literal brainwashing and shit.
>>
>>97816535
Your definition of ignorance is missing the point though. Law and chaos are both straightforward in that they identify something they like and go to it. Neutral is ignorant in that it vaguely identifies something, acts inconsistent, and doesn't get to it. One of the "features" (though you're also supposed to wonder if its right) of law is that law endings are never shown to be disrupted from the inside. IV even emphasized it multiple times by showing three different cases.
