Right now I'm at Day 4 of Devil Survivor... So far I'm trying to use some new demons.

Beldr's only really difficult if your MC isn't capable of doing any significant damage to him.

But, it only gets harder (relatively speaking) from here.

If anyone hasn't heard by now, Strange Journey is coming out state-side March 23rd. So be on the look out when it to the US. :3

Obviously its nothing right now but SOMETHING IS HAPPENING. Though I doubt we'll actually hear any Persona 5 stuff anytime soon.

Oh and SMT IV comes out in 9 days or something in the US, so that's cool.

I don't even have a Vita so I can't start that at all until that day comes!

I guess P3 will have to do in the meantime.

SMT IV came out in the US today.

If you're planning on buying it Physical is the far better value with all the goodies it comes with.

And like I mentioned before, buy and register both SMT IV and Fire Emblem Awakening (Physical or Digital) and you'll get a $30 eShop credit that you can use for either the 3DS or Wii U.

Yeah... that $50 price tag is a turn-off for me though, mainly because of the sprites. I mean, SMT Nocturne is a PS2 game and used 3D polygons for battles and everything. I don't get why IV suddenly went back to the 90s.

That being said, I just want to try a demo to even consider buying it. Just like with the Etrian Odyssey IV demo, which made me preorder the game in a heartbeat. goddamit I still haven't finished that game

Are you seriously saying graphics are something driving you away from the game

I'd rather it be more 90s esque in battles and cutscenes anyway since sprites look so much better for that kind of stuff than models do, that and the 3DS has limited strength/game size capacity compared to the PS2 so that could be a reason too.

And regarding demos there might be one on the eShop. I still have to get EO IV, so lazy on following that up.

Not always. It depends on the developer.

You'd have a much easier time making a detailed sprite in comparison to making a detailed model, yes. But that's about it; good, detailed models would be harder to produce. Doesn't mean it's impossible.

Models can look amazing with time and patience.

that and the 3DS has limited strength/game size capacity compared to the PS2 so that could be a reason too.

No.

3DS is stronger than the PS2. It's also higher than GameCube, but slightly below Wii, with more advanced shaders and lighting capabilities. Revelations is proof of that. The textures and bump-mapping are fairly advanced too; Nano Assault, as well as Revelations (again) is proof of that.

(click to show/hide)

Currently, the highest known size capacity for the 3DS is 8GB. PS2's memory only holds 32MB.

Are you seriously saying graphics are something driving you away from the game

Not my point.

I'm fine with sprites, being an old-school gamer and all.
 
What I mean is the mix between the 3D overworld and 2D battles doesn't sit well with me. Either make the game completely 3D, or completely 2D. Looking at the dark, fiery 3D environments with sprites in middle looks silly to me.

Now, I just want to try a demo to see if it's as bad as I fear. Playing it enough times, I may get used to it, and perhaps even like it.

But either way, incredibly lazy of them considering the 3DS' power.

Good to know somebody knows far more about the 3DS than I do(Seriously, I don't know anything about it.). But the 32 MB thing for the PS2... I don't think that's right, do you mean memory? Because games got quite big looking at some of the iso's I have.

But yeah what I'm thinking is that they either had the possibility to make everything models and ran out of space because the game is massive or something or they believed the game just wouldn't run very well in battles against enemies whose models would be massive.

To be fair I actually don't really know what I'm saying, I could be entirely wrong. They probably had a good reason for it though (and again I'm honestly fine with that since Atlus doesn't really try and push the envelope anyway with their graphics that much, and while they have done good looking models in games like Catherine I don't think they would've looked terribly great on the 3DS, especially not with the smaller resolution (though it would've looked better for 3D but hey what do I know.)

I feel I should mention the game's already got some DLC available, three things to be precise, two free and one for $1.99, they appear to be missions and costumes mainly. I'll dig deeper into it tomorrow.

Someone on another forum mentioned that Junpei looks like a college bum XD

EDIT: Videos of Junpei! Looks like one of his alt colors is a much better-looking gray.

So the Persona website has had something added to it.

http://p-ch.jp/

There's gonna be a stream for a major announcement, probably Persona 5, on the 24th, the link to the Stream is on the site but I'll also link it up here.

Also announced were a Persona 3/4 Mashup kind of thing for the 3DS called Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth.

And... A Persona 4 Rhythm game called Persona 4: Dancing All Night made by the Project DIVA team for the PS Vita. I guess that could be fun maybe playing as Rise dancing to P4 music.

Persona Q looks like it could be really neat.

Hopefully it is.
