Hmm. This sounds rather good actually. Though how is the story? I imagine it's very light-hearted, but how light-hearted are we talking here? Pokemon?

Okay.


The main series (1, 2, Nocturne ,Strange Journey). You control the protagonist, he's really the only human member that will ever be in your team. The rest of your team will be filled up with demons you have either coerced to join your side, or fused with another demon. The landscapes are usually pretty devoid of life and full of demons. The atmosphere is very oppressive and the storyline is heavily influenced by various religious and philosophical ideals. They are probably the toughest of all the games. Battles are played using a press turn system, where exploiting your enemies elemental weakness earns your party an extra turn to attack. There are multiple endings based on your alignment, Law, Neutral or Chaos.


Digital Devil Saga: This is a two part story. It has nothing to do with the main series, besides sharing things like spell names, demons you fight, and underlying themes. Battles are more traditional, as you have 5 permanent party members (3 allowed in a battle). Each character has an element and a weakness, ability levels are gained by eating your enemies. (As you are part-demon in the game). I don't want to say much about the story, only that it is amazingly well written and dark.

Persona: You play the role oh high-schoolers who are going through something extraordinary.  Persona are facets of someones personality given shape and form, usually representative of their hidden feelings. The main character in 3 + 4 is the only member who can switch between persona at will, (1 and 2 let all members change), Persona's are fused, leveled, bought (with tarot cards) at a place called the Velvet Room. Unlike the other games, Persona 3 and 4 are also part sim, where you go to school during the day and fight at night, though the day isn't wasted as the people you meet, and the strength of your relationship with them (Representative by the Major Arcana in tarot) decides the strength of your persona's.

Devil Survivor: Is an SRPG. You are trapped in Tokyo by the government and you only have 7 days to find a way out. It has all the staples of SMT including the multiple endings. Time matters, so you have to pick and choose your battles, and who you talk to before the timer runs out. It's grid-based, though when you attack, you are taken to a more tradition RPG battle screen.

Devil Summoner: I have no idea. It's an action RPG. That's about all I know.

I stay inside and close the curtains and hide from the little children dressed as clowns :(


I also watch Hocus Pocus.

I admit I am interested in it, but I haven't bought it.


I don't want to be let down again :(

People have thought I was over 18 since I was 12 :(

Curse of being tall. At least I got to sneak into clubs.

I wouldn't mind people being crazy, stalker, psycho bitch over someone if they at least stayed with that one person over a longer course of time. People like Madonna and Micheal Jackson ,who have had huge fanbases for ages. Instead I'm constantly subjected to this bloody new person that I've never heard of nearly every single week, while their predecessors are completely forgotten from public memory.

I hate having to hear about the new big thing, the constant rotation of brainless, soulless puppets wheeled out to distract people from any other, probably more meaningful, piece of information. Then it just gets worse when not only are people salivating over talentless morons, they also get worked up in their personal and/or sex lives. As if they have ANYTHING to do with it. Then eventually when brainless moron's lover does something stupid, they become cause célèbre and take the place of their once-famous-but-not-any-longer ex.

Then there's the whole culture of building these people up to near God-like status only to have the pleasure of ripping them down. And they LOVE it. The fucking public eats that shit up. They want to see the people who have everything torn down into nothing, in a childish powerplay to make their own fragile ego's seem relevant and needed. We want our celebrities dead. Preferably.

I agree that Disgea is a bit overly complex. It's just a big balancing act of numbers, numbers numbers.

You have levels of shop rank, levels of weapons, levels of characters, levels of magic, levels of items, levels of stats within the items, levels of class, levels of aptitude, levels of influence, a bonus gauge at the end of battles, chain reactions of geo panels to plan out, carry over of stats from reincarnation, judges who like or dislike you.

Theres just a LOT to deal with.

I hug and kiss my PS2 every night.



Okay, I don't but I do in my mind.

Yeah, that would be near impossible really. Best you could do is compare it to the average length of another well known RPG

You have to be above 18 to buy knives here in the U.K. The lady at the counter asked me how old I was and when I told her, she asked for proof of identification.

And yeah, what Starmongoose said. Less hold-up robberies, more stabbings. I hear Glasgow is stab central. :P

Just around the night clubs and such, not so much in the city center, but yeah, notorious for stabbings.

Knife crime is more common here in the UK Dincrest, since guns are hard to get ahold of.

We get apples in vending machines here :/

Is a banana that much of stretch?


EDIT: That cheese and ham toast vending machine was none too impressive.
