I stumbled onto the weird part of youtube, but I may have found gold. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjMk5PL2bjg

^^ That made my night :)

Thank you... not much actually makes me laugh out loud (though I over use the hell out of "lol" ironically)... actually nothing in recent memory. At about 45 seconds in the "you'll never see me again" had me in stitches.
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Demons cost magnetite to keep active. Your best bet is only to keep one or two around and summon the rest for boss fights. The cost decreases as their loyalty does, and increases with level.

So it costs energy to keep demons in your party while you walk around and you have to summon them as you go into every battle?
I'm trying to see if I understand that correctly.

Pretty much. There's a demon in the mid-game you can fuse called Greyman who repels physical. Once you get him and keep him in the front row, you'll practically never have to keep demons in your party besides him and the Zoma, which doesn't cost mag.

Don't you take damage while you're using turns to summon demons though? This is why I'm confused. That seems like a ridiculous system.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

You can summon outside of combat. The only time I've found a need to summon more whilst battling is during boss fights. And to be honest, lack of magnetite has been a complete non-issue for me thus far. Granted I'm not too far into the title yet though... I seem to burn through yen way quicker than magnetite as a result of healing costs.

Huh.

While I don't have a 3DS I had the intention of getting the limited edition of SMT IV and save it for when I have a 3DS, but with The Last of Us coming a month before it I doubt I'll have enough to money to grab one for me now...

*sigh*

Yeah. This is getting to be a crazy expensive year in general.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Yeahhhh I need to pre-order SMTIV like yesterday. One of the reasons I own a 3DS after all and I'm not missing that damn LE for anything.

That special edition of SMT IV! Jeepers! http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/04/17/shin-megami-tensei-iv-special-edition-revealed
I must have it. And Soul Hackers. Just gonna need that 3ds first..

So if you pre-order the game your getting the special edition no matter what? No wonder its 10 dollars up normal price.
Laugh and the world laughs with you.
Weep, and you weep alone.

I've just seen this news about the first run on SMT IV and I can't be happier.

Even though I'm trying to buy a little less games in between now and august, SMTIV surely was not going to be missed and now we find we'll get soundtracks and a guide bundled with it!

I haven't pre-ordered it yet, but I think I'm going to.

Pre-ordered the moment it showed up on EBgame's computer :D

I love all the loot Atlus puts with their games - I don't mind paying $50 for their games to begin with and then I find out I get THAT? :D

It would actually be kinda nice if they didn't slap that tacky ass "GS".

The last thing I want to do in the game is be a walking commercial.

It's just kind of disheartening to see things like retailer DLC happening to a game like this.
