As for the Nocturne guide, assuming you guys are talking about the Doublejump Books one, you can download it from their site for a nominal fee.  It's not as nice as having the physical copy, but it's better then having nothing, especially with the GameFAQs guides being notoriously incomplete for Nocturne.

Neat fact: The guy who owns Doublejump Books gave me a printer's copy of the Nocturne guide's poster as a birthday present.  It is the most sweet thing ever.

Yeah. I like DJ's guides, they're pretty complete. I have the P4 one and always wanted a P3 one. I'm perhaps too big of a fan for physical guides, but only when they're as good as these ones. Mine is used, because the brand new ones are ridiculously expensive, but still in really good condition. The bookmarks and poster were even still in it.

Ha. At E3 04, I left Atlus' booth with a big ol' SMT:N Maniacs poster and some Atlus pins and postcards. Not sure where some of those are, though the poster remains on my wall.

I really don't live off of GameFAQs like some people like to. I find guides (depending on the maker) more convenient for me for some games. I don't care if they ain't free.

Lucca - yeah, it can be expensive. But there were some reprints a couple months ago - I managed to get one off Amazon for $30US plus shipping. I'd keep looking, it might show up again.

Sometimes I read these boards and think some people like to argue just for the sake of arguing.

Let's just call it Gin/Haru's route, so that everybody knows what the fuck everybody's talking about, and move on!

I nabbed a Nocturne guide off eBay a couple weeks ago. It finally showed up in the mail (eChecks suck) and... God, this thing is huge.

I haven't played The Answer but I hear it's quite the grindfest.

DDS2 - In the 6th part of the last dungeon. Went back and sold shit so I could afford some decent Mantras. =P Beat two bosses (go me!) andddd only really stopped so that I could get up early tomorrow.

The no-transform dungeon kinda sucked even with that spray stuff, but the one with less turn icons wasn't so bad.

And besides. From a story perspective why WOULD Junpei act particularly smart in battle?
See, that's what I was thinking. :P Especially when he first joins.

Also P3 was fairly easy as far as SMT games go. If you were ever at a point where your party members would get you killed by either doing or failing to do something, you probably weren't approaching whatever battle you were at right. The MC has like, a dozen persona's available to him. That's plenty of room to cover your bases.
I've now played six MegaTen titles, and yeah, P3 was by far the easiest. P4 follows, and would more closely if it weren't for a couple of really tough bosses.

Well to me, someone already said this but not having direct control over the others made me feel more like the other characters were individuals, and the main character felt more like... you.

I've always been fine with P3's AI but P4's was substantially worse. Direct command was more uh, needed.

Of course... Direct control is proooobably preferable if I'm going to try Maniacs in P3P, heh.

Not sure I like the song. Actually, it's not terrible but it isn't Burn My Dread. I really like the video though.

How hard can it be to 'control' the characters' actions in P3/P3 FES? I didn't need to very often, except maybe Mitsuru, but I imagine in Hard you might need to do it more. Even still, just read the commands, know what the character's good at/enemy's weaknesses etc and whatever else the situation is.

Oddly enough, this new version makes me MORE likely to play it.  Haven't played it before, have a PSP with me pretty much all the time...  I just hope that despite the changes, it's a great game.
If you've never played P3, I'd give it a shot for sure. Already you're less jaded than us when it comes to the game. :P Not that it isn't a great game, because it is - but you won't get to bitch about changes and whatnot since it's all new anyway.

The final dungeon of DDS2 makes me want to bash my head into a wall. I'm in the 4th, uh, layer (out of 6 apparently) and I hear the final boss is a nightmare and a half...

I actually didn't have much trouble with the final boss once I laid out a decent strategy. The SECOND to last boss on the other hand, uhhh...
Maybe that's the one I'm hearing about.

DDS2. Still stuck. Think I'll just warp back to the beginning of the last dungeon, sell shit since I have lots of plants, download some badass mantras and just fight my way through again. :P

And the last boss I fought:
Code:
My God I hate Bat. Took me a few attempts before deciding to spend one turn with a magic shield up, then a physical shield the next turn, then alternate each turn. Made it that much easier.

Chrono Trigger.

....It's the only DS game I've actually, er, beaten :P

Although if I ever do finish it, Devil Survivor might be even better.
2848  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: August 20, 2009, 07:00:16 PM
The best route (especially for the first time through) is Haru's isn't it? Wait.. does she HAVE a route? I wouldn't know, I haven't beaten the game yet. :P

I haven't touched the game in a month. :( I've been slightly sidetracked by DDS...

Like I said, it could be a friendship s-link. In which case I still think it'd work. Not all s-links with the opposite gender have to be relationships, I'm glad P4 took note of this!

I wonder who you'll have to max Charm, Courage and Academics to talk to. :p
2850  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 3 portable on: August 20, 2009, 06:07:37 PM
Apparently there is a Junpei s-link too, but my Japanese skill level is only at 'lazy' so I...don't really know how to confirm it.

If it's true, I'm sold. :p
