I love the moment where I ask if someone wants a cider because I'm going to get one from the fridge, the person decides to not only tell me that they don't drink, also why they don't drink and also that my drinking this one lone cider makes me practically one with the animals, being unable to comprehend their superior intelligence. Then they have a smug look on their face like they are now the fucking Dalai Lama of wisdom.


Look, I was just being nice. I don't really want to give you one of my ciders, it's just a faux pas to not offer. I am aware drinking is bad for me, I have taken upon me, the seemingly  Atlas type responsibility, to choose to have a cider once a week with my Sunday dinner.

Last night I got drunk and took a tumble.

Today I spent six hours in the hospital and now have a month of crutches ahead of me for a severely sprained ankle.

The joys of drunkenness.

Many times, enjoyment is a process in which one actively seeks to enjoy something and eventually does.

Made me think of this, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_of_hedonism

And I agree more with the wiki page. Enjoyment almost never comes from actively seeking it

I love how manly seems to mean womanizing asshole with a violent streak and no sense of self-preservation. :)

What about the guy from Nocturne? huh? He Actually turns into a demon himself and goes to battle alone in a wasteland full of demons.
Now that I wrote that, I thought the protagonist from Demon's Souls run into almost the same category, but the guy from Nocturne was not a fighter to begin with, as opposed to the MC of Demon's Souls, and he's customizable so I think it doesn't counts.


Demi-Fiend is the guy from Nocturne.

I thought the same as Thoren, I thought Hero meant the MAIN hero. I could have named all those guys if I thought we were including secondary characters and sidekicks.

Demi-Fiend? come on

I already retracted my suggestion, he was manlier in my head for some reason, then I googled him and a picture of his snuggling a puppy came up and all manliness went out the window.

Demi-Fiend, I guess.


EDIT: Strike that, he is still pretty feminine, I just don't fucking know. Nor do I care, JRPGs have two kinds of male. You have your skinny poe-faced ones, and your big, hairy, bushy bearded ones who are either Pirates, Palace Soldiers,Barmen, Fishermen or the crazy hermit who lives in the mountains.

I don't really care how they look, if the art is still pleasing to the eyes and their sprite is well made, its all good. Seeing the "lol, he looks like a gurl" comments on a lot of JRPG heroes rubs me the wrong way.

Mine never crashed either, but on the upside, Devil Survivor saving is the fastest i've ever seen in a DS RPG to be honest. Barely a second and its saved.

In Devil Survivor you and your friends are trapped in a locked-down Tokyo, demons have started to appear and over the course of 8 days you get to watch how a city with access to luxuries descends into utter barbarism when taken away. I thought the story was really great. The writing and dialog is as good as any SMT title. There are a lot of mysteries surroundeding the lock down, the strange cult-like organization popping up offering salvation,  as well as the sudden appearance of demons.

Yes, multiple endings are worth it as you are never going to get the full scope of what is happening in one playthrough, and due to the time constraints the game puts on you (Each action is 30 mins of in-game time) You sometimes have to pick and choose the battles you fight, and the people you talk to.

The gameplay I feel is excellent, though different from usual SRPGs, which often have you massing large armies, you are mostly just a party of 3 teenagers, with occasional latchers on. most of the time you are saving people from demon attacks, or sometimes civilian attacks for stuff such as food and water. SMT fusion is still in the game, as well as a huge roster of demons to summon. Each character controls 2 demons, each of those demons have racial abilities (Megami can heal a distant party without wasting a turn, Beasts can move again after attacking, Dragons can attack from 3 spaces away, etc) and you actually get to pick and choose which skills/passive abilities get passed down to the offspring of a fusion. And you get your demons form an App on your glorified Nintendo DS (Called a COMP, in true SMT style, in-game) which is an auction where you bid on demons of varying strengths. Stronger demons usually are more expensive, and even some of the same demons can have different stats/movesets.

I think thats all I can say, if that doesnt convince you, nothing will. It does have its bad points, i'll admit. You will lose a lot on rescue missions, until you figure out the correct way to span large distances in under two turns.

I don't get what you mean either, insertnamehere - can you be more specific?

There is a calender in the living room if you want to save...and you check the TV for the weather forecast.

Extra Mantra Rings, a few added stats to your characters if you got them over a certain level, extra Macca if you had a lot by end game, Hard Mode is unlocked, Gale will get a secret ability in the final dungeon, there is a secret dialog choice which gives Argilla a secret skill and the final benifit is a story spoiler, so I don't want to tell you.

I completed Persona 3 and 4, whilst also having a life. I'm more talented than I thought if this isn't within the boundaries for a normal human.
My Persona 3 time was about 72 hours, and my persona 4 was about 83 hours. I am a very relaxed kind of player though, and will usually do pointless things I don't need to do, fix my inventory more than needed, etc.

Aren't there those action-rpg SMT games? No idea how good they are, but how bad can it be, it's SMT.

That should be their slogan I think. "How bad can it be? It's SMT."

Also, I loved Devil Survivor, you only have 3 or 4 controllable characters (Each with two partners) but the customization is rather in-depth.
