Shin Megami Tensei Thread

Discussion in 'Other Video Game Discussion' started by AuraChannelerChris, Feb 29, 2012.

  1. Persona Eternal Punishment and Innocent Sin. Those two are one of my FAVORITE ones out of the Shin Megami Tensei series ever.
    The story really broke my heart during the middle and the end. Especially Eternal Punishment too... *sniff* Oh Tatsuya ; n ;

    I can't wait to get the PSP version of Eternal Punishment. I'm currently playing the PS1 version right now.

    I was kind of excited until the persona 4 animation team was mentioned. Devil Survivor 2 is probably a little more difficult to do poorly however. and I know I am going to watch the series anyway.

    I just hope they don't end up beating the game with a dead horse like they did with Persona 4.

    This reminds me that I still need to play Devil Survivor 2, I have had the game since it released and still never got around to playing it much.

    Makes me regret getting DS 2, though I'll probably trade it in for the remake if there is one.

    Guess that's another anime for me to think sounds great at first, then to never, ever bother watching because it will probably be awful.


    Do we really need more of these expanded rereleases? I'm getting a little sick of them.

    Here's a teaser video of 23 seconds of the anime adaptation.

    Leave the theory about selling the DS version to GameStop. I'm really not very upset about this.

    I REEEEEEEEEEEALLY want to see a voiced scene of Airi & Kama.

    I'm glad the Devil Survivor series is getting the same love ATLUS gives to the Persona series. That's the main thing I'm taking out of this and the inevitable DeSu 2 re-release (voices and high res sprites alone will make me double dip).

    EDIT: So, there's two DeSu 2 websites. ds2.atlusnet.jp and ds2-p.atlusnet.jp. I assume that this means that the inevitable DeSu 2 sequel/enhanced port will be called "Devil Survivor 2 P____."

    It also means that this will be the fourth MegaTen game on the 3DS in the span of just 2 years. Three more and the 3DS will be equal to the PS2 in the number of MegaTen games.

    I've never played any Shin Megami Tensei games, and I'm interested in trying it out. What game should I start with?

    Gonna give this series a try.Hope it lives up to the hype.

    It depends on the system you have. If you have a 3DS, start with Devil Survivor Overclocked, and when it comes out, Megami Tensei IV. If you have a PS2 or PS3, definitely get Persona 4 as it is on of the best SMT games and one of the best RPGs. If you have a PSP, Persona 3 Portable is your best bet. PS Vita? Go with Persona 4 Golden, a remastered edition of Persona 4 with bonus content. If you have a DS, then try Devil Survivor 2.

    Odds are the DeSu 2 remake game will be released for 3DS. If it isn't, then oh well.

    *Opens repertoire*

    If you have a PS2, you're bound to play many SMT titles. You can start out with the Persona series, or start with Nocturne (it has Dante from Devil May Cry in it as a bonus).

    If you have a PSP, you can access almost all Persona games except for Eternal Punishment, & 4 on the Vita.

    If you have a DS, you can play the Devil Survivor series and possibly even try Strange Journey. If you live in America (unless you live in Europe and wishes to wait till February), you can try Devil Survivor: Overclocked (the first 3DS to be fully voiced).

    Really, any option is very good. The sequels can be played and be enjoyed fully without having to play the prequels as they're not really mentioned that much.

    I have a 3DS and a PS3. Are any of the PS2 games available on PSN?

    I know that that Persona games aren't, but I'm not sure about about Nocturne, though I highly doubt it's on PSN.

    As far as I know about PSN, no, unless you can somehow order copies online if your PS3 has backward compatibility.

    But your 3DS can play all the games, but they're all hard copies for the moment.

    Persona 3 is on PSN

    I'd start with Devil Survivor: Overclocked. Devil Survivor is a great way to introduce yourself to the other 3/DS SMT games (this is where you're gonna have to look if you don't have a PS2 - Persona 3 FES is your only option on the PS3). I'd play the 3/DS games in the following order:

    Devil Survivor: Overclocked ->
    Devil Survivor 2 ->
    Strange Journey ->
    Soul Hackers ->
    Shin Megami Tensei IV

    Are you guys seriously suggesting Persona titles to a newbie?

    Oh boy.

    I'd say just get Overlocked first.

    Wait, what's so bad about suggesting the Persona series?
