Klyde- when I think about it that way, yeah, I relate to so many of the P2 characters.  Maya, Eikichi, Katsuya... 

And, not gonna lie, I did have a bit of a "grown-up pixel crush" on Yukino in IS back when I played the import.  <3 her! 

Games I've given Editor's Choice to:
Ever 17, Hourglass of Summer, Anachronox, Persona PSP, Radiant Historia, To The Moon, Revolution 60

Nothing to be ashamed of there good sir! Hell, I figure if things don't work between me and Rei Ayanami,  I'll probably just go after Ulala myself..... Good to know I've finally found some "options" in life...
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…

So there is day 1 DLC guys.
http://www.siliconera.com/2013/05/23/shin-megami-tensei-iv-dlc-makes-leveling-up-easier/
Its kind of an extra dungeon if you really really really suck at the game, you go their, kill them, and they drop experience point boosts. This sounds like a cool thing for beginners, but...WHY ISN'T IT JUST IN THE GAME?

There's an extra demon as well. I was *really* hoping they weren't going to pull this with their DLC but I should have known better.

It's a palette swap of another demon.  Quit crying.  It's not a big deal.

It's the first DLC that was announced, so no reason to assume the rest of the DLC will follow this trend. I believe Atlus will give us some quality in the future.

So I've finally picked up Soul Hackers again, but man, this game just doesn't excite me. The Haunted House got a bit annoying so I just put on auto map and easy and rushed through it. The dungeon itself is cool though. I like how your choices affect how difficult that boss fight can be too. I just didn't feel the want to actually try at it though.

Now I'm on the Mayone fight and getting my ass handed to me. If I grind up two levels I can make Byakko with marakaran, where can I grind that will actually give me xp? That optional dungeon doesn't give me very much xp per fight.

Edit: I also picked up Strange Journey. Does anyone know where i can get some cover scans, because mine didn't come with a case.

Can you go into any past dungeons to grind? It probably won't help you too much if you grind, honestly. It helps to have a better demon set-up. The Byakko with Makaran will definitely help you, though. I can't remember how I won that fight, but I remember it being really easy the second time I tried for some reason. I think I had Leprechaun in my party with Rakunda.

Oh yeah, I got leprechaun. Doesn't help much, my party is destroyed within seconds. I can't get Byako until I'm level 40 though, and I'm level 38.

That is ironic... I put it down at the EXACT same spot a week ago myself... It is really rare for me to abandon a title this far into it but I (like you) just don't seem to have a real itch to continue.

I imagine I will pick it back up once I finally polish off P2 EP, but I am not looking forward to that boss fight... I think I lost like 9 times in a row last I turned it on-LoL

Well you have Persona 2 EP as an excuse. I have started so many SMT games its ridiculous. This is the farthest I've made it into an SMT game since I beat P2 IS like four months ago. Soul Hackers has been very enjoyable for me thus far, but once I put it down, I just never wanted to pick it up again. The story is great, but the gameplay is so uninteresting. Kind of like my feelings towards P2. I think I'm doing with this game, what I did with that. Playing it nonstop when I get it, getting burnt out. And never really wanting to pick it up. Although when I did it with P2, the minute I picked it up, i was not going to put it down. Soul Hackers doesn't give me that feeling.

Also random thought, but am I the only one who really loved the Deva Yuga in P1? I started humming the theme to that earlier, although Revelations: Persona had more moody music, the PSP version seems to me like the music is FAAAAR better out of context.

Edit: Mayone is beat. Just had to do some creative fusing, and beat that awful woman. Didn't need Byako either. I got Kaso with Marakaran who would cast it right as they were about to hit with powerful attacks. Ten hours in, half way through. Either this game is short or I'm fast.

Just chiming in to post that I lost desire just slightly before the Haunted House as well.  I suppose you could say I lost it at the haunted house as well because that's where I'm headed to save a certain someone.  This game is pretty good, but I'm just not feeling it for some reason.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

More deep and meaningful Shin Megami Tensei IV DLC announced -- NeoGAF

Seems fair to assume that the DLC for P5 is gonna be just as good.

Rather it be this kind of stuff than something else. Plus, they need to make money. This takes nothing away from the experience of a player who chooses not to buy it.
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

I'm at the final boss in Soul Hackers. The magical one I think, because I killed Tiamat. What demons are good for this fight, because the ones I have now suck.
