Still, considering I was 40 pounds heavier a year back, having ladies in cars check me out as I ride is totally awesome.

They probably thought you were Lenny Kravitz or something too.

So it sounds like Devil Survivor and Knights in the Knightmare are the two best portable SRPGs out right now. I should pick up Knights sometime.

Devil Survivor... let's see.

* While I GENERALLY prefer demon conversations, the auction is a damn lot better than Devil Summoner's "mash X on stunned enemy repeatedly!" idea. Also, you get auction accidents, too. This is also amusingly nostalgic given that I've imported like five* or so SMT games and it really reminds me of that. I'm a fucking dork :3c

* Battle system reminds me of Disciples/Disciples 2 in the sense that *party composition is everything*.

* Party-based movement also has the added advantage of not having to spend forver moving twelve units around individually. This ALSO helps make doing free battles *really fun* since they don't take forever, you tend to level up fast or crack new skills constantly

* Movement and positioning are ALSO meaningful though, since you need to control who is BEING attacked in your party to advantage yourself and shit like that and so you can pull back more vulnerable characters, and the like, and skill cracking feeds into this...

* Kill the healers first.

(SMT1, SMT2, IS, and the first three devil children games. I'll pick up If... and soul hackers when they get some damn translations. It's like holy goddamn don't mess with translation hacks just release a script if it's quicker. Lots of people did IS with Oracle of Maia).

It was one of those days when I thought, "man, if I was 10 years younger, I'd have tried to score her digits."

Still legal bro.

"Hi do you have shin megami tensei nocturne?"
"SHUMI AMI TASEN?"
"Yeah sure."

"Hi do you have Bloodmoon?" (The morrowind expack)
"BLOODMAYO?"

Look I'm all for being an equally opportunity employer but:

a) handling mentally handicapped people to drive snow ploughs is a BAD IDEA.
b) handling deaf people to work the call center at gamestop is a BAD IDEA.

Additionally, there was the guy that tried to sell me a non-special edition of Devil Summoner 2, spent ten minutes looking for it, and then the other clerk was like "dude that doesn't exist."
6694  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: June 29, 2009, 11:26:05 PM
MY gamestop had the game on the 24th and they're ALWAYS late getting stuff, but I'm pretty close to Canada so maybe I got it faster or shipping was just quicker from Ohio being flat why do I feel so sideways.

Why does this game not have a monster are repository anywhere :(

Anyway how does elemental affinity work in the Devil Children games? Is it just straight up "Water-affinity demons are weak to fire" and none of this "Demon X might have random strengths on XYZ and weaknesses for ABC and reflect QVC" or whatever? I'm trying to play the damn thing in Japanese and I'm constantly DYING because I don
't know what I'm doing.

Somewhere on day 2 in Devil Survivor. Looks like things are a bout to get sort of nuts. Also playing TWEWY. Still no clue how to use the top screen effectively, and I'm on the last day with Shiki apparently.

Oh, and for fun, I'm trying to type up some menu translation for uh... Devil Children White book for my own reference. Just spell names and stuff.

Oh and I got stubbycat back in DQV and it's not Stubby anymore! It's LEGGY.

It's a GPS MMO where you cosplay as suikoden characters and run around your university looking like an insane bitch. And hit eachother with wooden swords.

LARPing rules dawgz.

But considering they haven't even got the right cover for their Nocturne review link (it's the cover to Digital Devil Saga), I guess that they're not worth taking very seriously.

It's a review for DDS too. and they complain about SMT:N trying too hard to be experimental, while also being too conventional or something. What's more concerning is that the DS2 review has the DS1 cover pictured.

Their Rogue Galaxy review is also retarded. I mean, they bashed the game, which I don't really take issue with because I can't say I liked RG much, but their reasons were sort of dumb.

Anyway, played Devil Survivor quite a bit today. Doing battles outside of the story battles to get more exp and stuff isn't a problem because the battles are fun! wish it had a skirmish mode or something. and loving the demon designs. still think people art looks like bleach tho
6698  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Michael Jackson dead. on: June 27, 2009, 11:50:54 PM
From my understanding and everything I've seen, Jackson had some regressionist disorder. In other words, he never considered himself an *adult*. So yeah, maybe he did sleep in bed with younger cihldren, but he didn't see *himself* as *older* than them, and there wasn't anything sexual going on because he wasn't even sexually mature enough to pursue that sort of contac.

Also I've heard his plastic surgery described as a way of trying to look as little like his father as possible or, alternately, a failed attempt to look as *young* as possible.

He probably had undiagnosed schizophrenia or something too, relaly.

Half-decent mana game? I'd like them to make an at least FULLY decent mana game for a change.

LoM's story is at it's best when you're ending two of the three main story arcs. Otherwise it's almost entirely forgettable.

LoM used to be my favorite game and now, like most Square games I liked when I was younger, I don't really like it. So much for nostalgia.

Also it looks like Devil Survivor WILL recquire some grinding ;(

Sweet, Nancy Spungen RealDoll eating a dick on a bun. This fills me with TWICE the urge to vomit than BK usually does!

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.
6703  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Square Enix Game on: June 26, 2009, 06:58:47 PM
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.
6705  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: June 25, 2009, 10:12:53 PM
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 :(
