    Back to Devil Survivor 2 again. Day 2's big boss fight was surprisingly easy. Maybe because all my characters were fairly leveled? Whatever the reason, it had some fairly simple attacks, and event he special objective wasn't that troubling: all you had to do was beat the boss before a certain spawned enemy reached its destination... although you could just beat up on the spawned enemies for easy EXP, but hey, a massive AoE attack from the boss is hard to deal with.

    Still really early but it seems that most BnBs are not overly long while still dealing ok damage, which would be a HUGE improvement over blazblue.

    What is OG?

    So far Overclocked is better, although some of the menus are nicer in this one. I really, really miss the voice acting already. As I said, the music is nowhere near as ludicrous, not enough guitar solos for me. Some of the system stuff that seems to be missing from the first game is probably just not unlocked yet. I'll have to give it a day or two.

    Been talked about before, but Devil Survivor 2 was planned way before Overclocked, and tons of OC's skills and newer mechanics were borrowed from DeSu2. Overclocked was them "testing the waters" for the 3DS.

    On another note, my Phys MC is kicking ass now. I feel more like Atsuro after OC came out, what with the newer Phys skills and all. The sheer amount of Phys attacks also means I can now have two Phys hitters on the field without worrying; at least until I come across the Phys resistant enemies, but that's what Pierce was made for.

    I've been meaning to give this series a shot for a while, but what's the best place to start? Nocturne, Digital Devil Saga, The PSP port of Persona, Persona 3, or something else?

    Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army sounds really interesting, but used prices are a bit ludicrous.

    It all comes down to your tastes in the end, really. Almost all Megaten games are great, but they are in ways that are very different.

    Imo Nocturne is the best in the series but I think I was able to appreciate it more since I was able to 'warm up' with other games. I'd say that P3/P4 are the most accessible, but keep in mind that they aren't very representative of the series as a whole. They're pretty much a completely separate series by now(hell, even Atlus USA has dropped the Shin Megami Tensei title for P4 Arena), but they were the gateway series for me, at least.

  • Gaming-FreakGaming-Freak Registered User regular
    Nocturne is good, but it is definitely not the game to start out with. It's a game where if you're not careful you can really screw up your main character and make it nearly impossible to win the game. It's also pretty damn hard.

    Nocturne is best played on Hard. It will force you to learn the battle and fusion systems as you break enemies over your knees and express maniacal laughter.

    Or you don't learn the system and get crushed with game over after game over.

    Unaware if this has been mentioned yet, but apparently Atlus has hidden a nice little copy protection gem inside Devil Survivor 2.

    There's an event that is supposed to take place that makes the first boss at the end of the first day killable. Apparently in a pirated copy, that event doesn't take place, so your group will get unceremoniously stomped by the (damage immune, your level +~15) boss. So apparently people posting on forums asking why they can't hurt the first boss are dead giveaways.

    I love Atlus.

    Is there one standard game to start with?

    I mean, the series as it were is so fractured anyways. You have real time with rasputin, ffx clonery with dickgirls, popular dating sims, gravity defying tits SRPGs and old school dungeon crawls. Now they'll be people who glom on to the series with an Arc fighting game, and years back we had people introduced via Pokémon clone and or fantasy RPG spinoff.

    If you want a proper SMT experience, and don't mind the thrill of death, start with Nocturne.

    If you want a gradual introduction, and a great experience in its own right, I'd say Persona 3(FES).

    I started with P4. Good enough place to start, but it's still a fair and moderately challenging game. Then maybe go with P3FES, where you'll definitely miss being able to control your allies in combat. THEN go with Nocturne, maybe after playing P3FES on Hard.

    Pfft compared to Nocturne or SJ the only hard thing in the modern Persona games is getting all those social links to work out.

    Going from Persona on any difficulty to a real game is like going from Tee Ball to the pros.

    Man P3 and 4 aren't THAT easy. They're challenging enough to make you have to think about what you're doing. Honestly I think they hit the perfect balance between challenge and fun.
