Salvia trips are supposed to be crazy, but it's still legal because physically it's harmless and you're not really likely to DO anything dangerous on salvia.

What. Romancing Saga 4 or Saga 4? A... A square game that I'd care about? That's not TWEWY 2?

Impossible !!

Wow. Popmatters reviewed Raidou 2.

http://www.popmatters.com/pm/review/102216-shin-megami-tensei-devil-summoner-2/

This is fucking retarded. By popmatter's standards, even, which are *goddamn low* (See: Most videogame reviews they do). They don't discuss the gameplay except in the barest sense and spend the entire review misconstruing the demon negoation system for two whole pages, give it a 5 out of 10, and their only complaint is that it's too sprawling compared to Persona 3.

The hell?

This is like, even worse than Tidwell and his inability to grasp multi-clausal sentences.

Speaking of demikids, I should give dark version another shot. It seems better than light. more interesting fusion system and actual difficulty. although the story is still retarded and dark/light are STILL pretty much the dregs of that side-series (which is sort of annoying since Fire/Ice is supposed to be quite good and a return to the cheeky subversiveness of like, Black/Red/White, which I'm sure really isn't considered that subversive in Japan because it's Japan. Go Japan!).

I also wish Devil Survivor was coming with a soundtrack :(

So uh... Eusis can you explain this further how thet timelines work out and all :(

(Also wasn't the MMO called innocent sin online, too?)

And since all 5 Persona games are decidedly in the same timeline, they're not the same Kuzunoha family.

Wait, P3/4 are in the same timeline as P1/2/2? I thought it was established otherwise with the MMO SLink.

Also doesn't the Kuzunoha from the first Devil Summoner posess Tammy or something?

Hey. The first two names in your name are "generic"...

And I kept parsing that as geriatric. Whoops.

Also got Devil Summoner. just started playing it. Named my MC "Yulan" after a subgenus of asian magnolias. The music reminds me of the music from Caverns of Zeux. Also goddamn did they get the Bleach guy doing character art or something.

Music also reminds me of SimIsle. Damn.

---edit---

Wow this game DOES get hard fast.

Is there a bigger popular culture figure who could have died worldwide?

If so, name him/her,

JP

Tidwell.

Goddamn didn't see that coming.

from what I'VE scene P2: EP is more of a direct sequel to P1 than P2: IS which is also one of the reasons I think EP got a stateside release over IS. Both P2s rub me wrong so whatever.

Well Persona 2 has the Kuzunoha Detective Agency, so you could argue that Devil Summoner and Persona take place in the same world, though I think that was more of an Easter Egg for fans than anything important.

I THINK it's the same world since the reference is pretty pervasive in uh IS I think. It's just some really obfuscated way. SMT If... is also in there. I never played the first two devil summoner games or SMT If so I couldn't get the details without horribly butchering the hell out of them though.

Also the character design for Raidou Kuzunoha was invented sometime in the late 90s, which is odd.

It's awwwwwwright.

... daikatana came out before all three of those.
6643  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fallout PC bundle on: June 24, 2009, 05:17:20 PM
I liked the fighting in Fallout.

I did not like the endless fighting in Fallout 2.

Okay honestly as I've said a MILLION times before, I thought Fallout 1 was better than 2 in pretty much every way. Fallout 1 was a concise, punchy, and well-written RPG that you could beat in about 15 hours and replay readily. Fallout 2 tried to reimagine Fallout 1 as an epic-length RPG with lots of dungeon crawling and really crappy humor that was based on nothing but pop culture r...

Comparison!

Fallout 1 = pixar.
Fallout 2 = dreamworks.
6644  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What RPG(s) Are You Looking Forward To? on: June 23, 2009, 10:08:54 PM
Yeah. The review made it sound like the latter.

It's possible the reviewer just sucked at the game and was grinding to compensate but I like giving the benefit of the doubt.

(mind turns to sacha baron cohen; leonard cohen; national film boards of canada; boards of canada; and i am away lying on my back and watching airplanes fly across the surface of the moon. --kjetl)

Admittedly the game sounds like it lacks backtracking and most SRPGs have finite enemies in battles, so... kinda of confused.

well the RPGFAN review of Devil Survivor said it was grindy so I guess I'm not looking froward to that anymore. And now my signature is SUPER relevant. !!
