In defense of SMTIV, most of its DLC are just an easy way to grind and honestly, I'm just too happy to be worrying about any DLC that may come out.
We'll pretty much get 4 games, P5, the rhythm game on Vita, the mix of P3 and P4 on 3DS and the update of P4 Arena.
I hope P5 stays true to the formulae of P3 and P4 and doesn't bring back the demon conversation systems of P1 and both parts of P2, since I don't like using a guide when playing a game and thus didn't like that particular aspect.
I'm completely with you on this.
I think in SMTIV there was a nice balance of its use but I have to confess I preffer to play the game without it, especially because in SMTIV the shop to bring back demons from your registered are extremely costly, so if demon conversations happen to come back to P5, I hope at least they make the buying them back not too expensive.
