Do any /nen/frends here like the MGS series, like really really like it and grew up with it?
nen, I am in a lot of pain. It's the phantom pain… it's really real and it's hurting me a lot, you don't understand. You don't understand! /nen/ I thought I would be okay, but it’s my spirit… so many months have gone by, and still that beautiful game… still holding me very tightly. I want to overcome it, this feeling. It’s not just about playing the game again, I need a frend that can help me move on, this summer. Will someone be my frend?

The emotions are real. Why did Kojima do this to us? The whole experience… I almost want to cry. What am I to do


I did, the first three still has the biggest impression on me, there were so many iconic moments. The first MGS was so exceptional for its time, it was unlike anything up until then. Completely, blew my mind as a kid.

I thought V wrapped up the series very well though. Not many series were fortunate enough to get such a nice farewell.

On an unrelated note, I'm currently struggling to get over Nier;Automata having completed it only a few days ago.


Such passion!

I've only played the first MGS long ago…


Mario Golf!


Hot Shots Golf is fun too!


Now I have an itch for a golf game. I've played a lot of mario golf. Maybe I'll try what >>12227 said.

I'm trying to play Disgaea 5 without playing any previous games in the franchise, am I supposed to recruit a bunch of characters from the start? I don't know what I'm doing…

I've never played a golf game before, what is the appeal for you?


They're nice and relaxing. Probably like real golf would be, without having to have a course near by, having to pay a fee to get in, buying/renting clubs, months or years of practice to get good, holding up other players and embarrassing yourself because you're bad…

I've never played real golf though. Just putt golf and frisbee/disk golf.


Thanks for responding, I've never played real golf either. Relaxing games are the best, maybe I should try one out and see if it appeals.

Yes! MGS really shaped me too and how I appreciate a lot of things. Everything about it is so cool! I can't get over it. I really tried to! I ignored everything thinking I need to move on, but it turns out my heart won't let go. I was spending all day listening to music that reminded me of everything, like the last part of your song fills me up with so much emotions… so many memories and things to talk about, the lore! Waiting for V was the most fun experience ever with a fanbase. I miss it so much, so many people miles more passionate than me, it was so exciting to be around. I feel so lonely now that it's all distant and everyone has moved on. Really lonely… I don't know what to do.
But that's exactly how Snake always feels right? These heavy emotions we have to bear with on the battlefield.
Shenmue2 came out that same time MGS2 released too, and I think everyone knows how we didn't get a nice farewell for that (but soon!). I have a Dreamcast still and was thinking about playing that too, it's really nice and I have fond memories of it. Does anyone here play Shenmue?
I want to play NierA too, but one day when I have the money. Does that one hurt?

It takes itself a lot less seriously than DoD1 and the tone is more light-hearted but the plot itself is your usual Taro wackiness and it gets very dark and emotional sometimes, particularly towards the end. I liked most of the characters, especially the intoners but most of their characterization comes from the overpriced but neat DLCs and novellas/manga (if you like the game make sure you check these out after you finish the game since half of the story is side stuff material).

As far as the gameplay goes it's kind of the same as 1 but better (e.g. you don't have to stand in a room for an hour to get a weapon) with the exception of the aerial missions which are a lot more railroaded, kinda like a Panzer Dragoon. I prefer 1's aerial missions.

If you liked DoD1 you'll probably enjoy this one too if you can stomach the dragon piss jokes in the first level. Oh and the OST is really great too.

I got back into Elite Dangerous some time ago. Just recently I unlocked the Federal Assault Ship. It's a medium-sized, heavily armoured ship with big mass. Ramming pirates is a fun and surprisingly effective tactic with it. I've rammed a full shielded Anaconda with it, punched straight through its shields and shaved off 10% hull integrity off him, while my shields survived the ram (I had 4 pips to systems though). I hope the Federal Gunship is just as fun when I unlock it. 7 hardpoints for weapons and the ability to install a fighter hangar has lots of potential for shenanigans.


The anticipation building up to V was certainly exciting, with all the suspense Kojima built around it. I think the way Kojima wraps the series up without leaving too many glaring loopholes makes it easier to get around in time. When did you last play the game? Speaking to you about it like this and listening to music from the game floods me with memories.

Unfortunately I didn't have a Dreamcast and never had the chance to play Shenmue just yet. I've always heard about how great it was for its time and had wanted to play it. I think I might emulate it one of these days. With regards to NierA, it was a typical Yoko Taro game. It felt a little different for me though, I don't know how to explain it. Perhaps I feel a little more unsatisfied at the end.

I've restarted Nier for the third time. I have a bad habit of starting games and never going back to them. This time I'll finish it!

I haven't played 5, but unless you're trying to minmax you can't go too wrong with any recruiting decisions because the main stories in Disgaea games are pretty easy and grinding will get pretty much any party through the more difficult post-game stuff anyway.

i found this game on the eshop called Gotta Protectors its really cute and fun and the gameplay is crazy more people should know about it, please try it!


So far my only issue with P5 is ``I am thou, thou art I'' should be ``I am thee, thou art me''.

They've been saying it like that since the first game, so maybe they just thought it would be weird to change it now.

Speaking of which, I finally finished the main route in Persona 1. Overall, I really liked the story, and it was fun to see some of the Persona 2 characters as high school students. I had to redo half of the game just to get the good ending, but the unexpectedly tough final boss and seeing everyone happy at the end made it all worth it.

I will probably get back to it and do the Snow Queen route once I finish Persona 5.


Do any of you ever stream? It's really easy!


Only twice, when a friend asked and wanted to watch.


All DLC content in 100% Orange Juice is unlocked until next week! It's the perfect opportunity to see which DLC characters you might like!

PAYDAY 2 is completely FREE on steam right now!!!
Get it while you can!


I got it, but maybe I shouldn't have got it because they're only giving away limited number of copies.

Usually it's limited by time, but this is limited by number of copies and idk if I actually play it now. I feel bad because maybe I take a copy that someone would've liked to have.

Oh no. I've made a terrible mistake.

How can I untake my copy? I'm so sorry.


I noticed that they are only handing out a limited amount of copies as well after I got mine but it looks like a fun game to play with frens so I think I'll play it!


>completely FREE
No it isn't, it is free of charge, or gratis, but it still requires one to install the proprietary Steam software, which is not free in the most important sense!


steam is american so it must be free. if america is so free why does it allow notfree software then, huh?

sounds like america is more like a commie state if you ask me. maybe you should complain about it on a message board, it's like complaining to your local congressman since the NSA will find it and feed it to them anyway.



its free as in beer


Beer is not free…

E3 has been a massive disappointment so far. I hope Sony saves us. Or we'll have to wait until TGS for good video games news…


I never pay too much attention to E3, usually I just check a list of all the games that got announced once it's over and watch a compilation of the worst moments on Youtube.


I'm used to it by now. I know I'm not the target audience for most games, but I still watch anyway in case something interesting shows up.


I havent watched e3 in 5 years I just wait for the news to come out after the show


I don't pay attention to western games so TGS is the one I normally look forward to. Nowadays, there are rarely any surprise announcements though, since everything is out in the net way before the events.


I feel the same way.

Did they have their conference yet? Did they announce anything good?


new kirby
metroid prime 4
'core pokemon rpg' for switch
lots of details on Mario Odyssey


Also, new Yoshi! And Metroid II remake for 3DS.


The game is on sale again this week. If you want to pick it up and play with nenfriends now is a good time!


The youtube AI has been playing it again as well and they added some cute voices for the main characters in the latest dlc!


I bought all the DLC for 100% OJ I hope i can play with frens soon


We'll wait warmly for you this Saturday!

Sorry it's been a while! It's summer NOW and I will finally start playing!! Am thinking about trying to relive the hype and start with GZ, and then go over anything I miss in the lore with videos and such. I haven't even started… but there are things in the game that are really relevant to things happening in my life right NOW and that is maybe why I have this calling? Last time I played the game… was around November of 2015ish. I remember not even trying the online multiplayer year after because I was not interested and was too emotionally involved and quit COMPLETELY! KOJIMA HURT ME!!!!!
Also! I am going to purchase NierA really soon from the sale!
I mentioned Shenmue, because I wanted to practice my Japanese comprehension, and I think it's a very nice game that has lots realistic interractions. Hehe, maybe nobody here was into it like I was.

Sounds great! I hope you'll have a blast. I didn't get to play the online multiplayer for Phantom Pain either although I remember MGO for MGS4 was really fun. Why did Kojima hurt you? That's nice, I look forward to discussing NierA with you in the future. I was very intrigued by Shenmue and I still regretted not being able to play it when it came out. I think the game that was closest to it that I've played would probably be the Yakuza series.


WOW I just found out that animal crossing nl will automatically maintain your town for you if you leave the game for long enough!!! I had been afraid to touch it for a year after forgetting about my town…

And I hope you all have a nice day today!


Thanks for posting Ranko. You seem to have a lot of friends!

I just finished Gothic 1 yesterday. The setting was neat, but the game itself was a little dull. Everyone raves about the second game so I hope it's better.


I recently got a PS4 and just finished Persona 5. What should I get next? I have Disgaea 5 ordered and have already played NieR:Automata on PC.


I miss the Harvest Moon series so much.


Yeah, it's been sad watching the series get dragged through the mud like this ever since the Marvelous/Natsume split. Apparently the new Harvest Moon game looks so bad that Natsume didn't want anyone taking pictures of it at this year's E3.


I don't have a PS4 yet, but the two games I really want to play on it are Bloodborne and Future Tone.


Technically, the legitimate successor would be Marvelous' Story of Seasons since they have always been the developer whereas Natsume only owns the name. The latest entry you spoke of was developed by a western studio if I remember correctly. Still, the whole series have been going through the handheld route for a while now. The gameplay as I recall was also becoming a lot more objective based. I quite miss the older console entries where it was more open and "vast".


Bloodborne and Nioh are great choices if you like those types of games.


last time i play killing floor 2, i spawn and then all the boys surround my girl character and started to make weird noises and they surround me and they block me and i couldn't move!

and this is the second time it happened!!!!!!

why they block me like that??? is so weird!!!


Sounds scary.

So basically every monster that ever destroyed Tokyo is coming to destroy Tokyo at once?


Uh oh!


It sort of is. I think it's a twist of the Zettai Zetsumei Toshi series which is a survival game that puts you as a survivor of a major (natural) disaster. I think the concept for this is quite interesting since it puts you in the same situation but as a survivor of a sci-fi disaster. Although I've read that it's not meant to be related to the series though supposedly since a new installment is supposedly in the works.

The developer, Granzella, is made up of the former staff of Irem and technically their spiritual successor. They are also the ones who made and maintained Playstation Home.


This looks better than the new Godzilla movie.


Wait there's another?


Written by Urobuchi.


WTF is it with Japan getting anime directors into godzilla??


Toho knows the average movie-goer will probably see a new Godzilla movie since it's a summer blockbuster. But they can draw in the anime otaku by putting in a name that's big in the anime world. The average movie-goer won't care either way. And besides, Anno and Urobuchi are skilled in their own right.


The last godzilla movie was quite similar to EVA in a lot of ways (even my dad noticed it). I wonder how this will turn out.

Your reminder is too early… You could call it a preminder.




Was reading about Sega consoles last night, its actually appalling how they built so much momentum with the Genesis and then completely squandered it pumping out garbage, the story of the Sega Saturn is also tragic but seems overshadowed by the Dreamcast.


Can you summarize the exciting parts, I'll read it all.


Sega Master System came out during the NES age but struggled because Nintendo ran extremely draconian licensing practices; if you developed games for NES you were not allowed to make games for other systems, or you lost your licensing privileges. SEGA in turn developed the Mega Drive or Genesis and ran an extremely aggressive marketing campaign against Nintendo, attracting their own developers in the process. SEGA was ultimately successful, beating the SNES in marketshare and reducing Nintendo to lying about their sales numbers.

As the next console generation started to roll around, 32 bit was all the rage, and SEGA wanted a piece of the pie early while they were still developing the Saturn. So they made the 32X, an addon to the Genesis, which was 32bit, but was crap. Then they made the Sega CD, which unlike the 32X was redeemable. Sonic CD is considered the best Sonic game ever made, but that is pretty much the only good game for it, still better than the 32X which had nothing good.

SEGA developed the Saturn shortly afterward. Saturn was an interesting console with very complex hardware as well as being EXPENSIVE. An interesting tidbit is that it used quads instead of triangles for its 3D. It has been said that if the Saturn had been successful, quads would be the standard instead of triangles. Saturn had almsot no 3rd party support because of the 32X and the CD's failure. Its life was cut short 4 years after launch. Many people cite the lack of a sonic game as the reason for its failure, though Sega had one in development that never got around to being published.

Sega's last ditch attempt was the Dreamcast, released in 1999. Unlike the Saturn, the Dreamcast was made to be CHEAP. A former executive said that the Dreamcast was built like a typical PC instead of a gaming console, and Microsoft even released a version of Windows CE for it. Dreamcast was made to be so cheap in fact, that there was squabbling in Sega's board of directors about adding the built in modem, which would add $15 to the retail price. Another interesting tidbit is the fact that by 1999, SEGA's brand had been so tarnished (Genesis had only launched 10 years earlier) that SEGA was considering not even putting their logo on the console. To quote Wikipedia: "Dan Whitehead of Eurogamer, discussing the Dreamcast's portrayal 'as a small, square, white plastic JFK', commented that the system's short lifespan 'may have sealed its reputation as one of the greatest consoles ever': 'Nothing builds a cult like a tragic demise'. According to IGN's Travis Fahs, 'Many hardware manufacturers have come and gone, but it's unlikely any will go out with half as much class as Sega.'


Not him but as far as I know they bought into their own hype about 16bits and made the 32x which was supposed to have double the power, then got into the CD fad too early with the sega CD, wasting a ton of money on products that were way too expensive for the general public meaning they never got proper returns. Then when they made the saturn they had the american and the japanese branches competing with each other to come up with the console instead of working together and the american team won with an atrocious design that, while powerful, was never used to its full extent and was so complicated it was hard to make games for much less port them, condemning the saturn to depending mostly on exclusives, to the point it's still a pain to emulate today. Also losing the source code to panzer dragoon saga.

This video shows very well what people who made games for the saturn had to deal with. It also shows all the crap about 60fps is meaningless (starting at around 3 minutes).


I guess it's time to dust off my saturn and play SEGA Rally Championship.


Stream it.


I don't have anyway to do that or I would


>still better than the 32X which had nothing good
Personally I had a lot of fun with Kolibri, Tempo, and a few other 32X games. The add-on itself was still a huge mistake though, and it makes me wonder why some developers even bothered making games for it instead of the Saturn.


Thanks for typing all of that up, I read everything. I had a general idea from watching sega consoles come and go. I had always thought the dreamcast died cause anyone could pirate games for it, but I never spent any time researching.


The Dreamcast died because better consoles were being released. Remember what it was competing against at the time: PS2, XBOX, GameCube. Tough competition for a brand that was on its death throes.


Can you post the link to the full story?


>It also shows all the crap about 60fps is meaningless (starting at around 3 minutes).
I don't see how it shows that.

Nothing perverted about splatting some squids.


I've been replaying the PC port of Mighty Switch Force today and have been having a blast. The switch mechanic livens up the platforming, so it's not just about timing your jump to get maximum distance but also timing the switch to enable certain blocks to appear; it's a special kind of suffering knowing you were solely responsible for spawning the block which killed you. I'm also a huge fan of the music throughout the game; the tempo sets a good pace for the game play, while the songs themselves are light and uplifting, lending to the games pleasant atmosphere.

Anyone watch the Nintendo direct? I was really hoping for Pikmin 4 since they said it was "close to completion" years ago, but somehow they're still not giving us news on it.
But on the other hand, Octopath Traveler looks amazing. We already knew how beautiful the artstyle was and now it looks like the gameplay's going to be great as well.


Wow, it looks interesting. It's like Saga Frontier + Final Fantasy Tactics + Tactics Ogre.


Yea. I was getting Saga feel from what they showed of Octopath.

Pokemon trailer was underwhelming but I'm excited to play GS again. Hopefully the Pikmin 4 you mentioned wasn't Hey Pikmin.


The SaGa series was good, wasn't it? I hope this could be a success and set a precedent for the revival of the RPG genre. I've always felt that RPG should't evolve by way of graphics but rather content. Admittedly I don't play much of it nowadays but I look fondly to the past as I grew up in the golden age of rpg. I Still hope we could get another sci-fi/mecha epic like Xenogears.

It came out on vita months ago.

I've been playing way too much Nioh… the combat and the loot system are just so addicting


I didn't realize Okami is getting a HD remaster that is coming to PC. I guess it's a good reason to replay it. I really liked it and had always hoped that Japan would make more games with mythological Japanese themes. Now if only the Shadow of the Colossus remake would be released on PC as well..


I never had any relevant system for it in the past, I'm really excited for the hd re-release.



Meant to post this as well but there was an error embedding. Seems like the Japanese version has furigana, maybe I'll try practicing.

I've played it on the PS2. I was surprised to find out that it was created by Hideki Kamiya and (for the most part) the Platinum Games team.


It had an HD release on PSN years ago.

I only played a bit, I'm enjoying fire emblem quite a bit more right now.


FE Warriors?


Yes, I'm having a lot of fun with it. They added Japanese audio as an extra free DLC which was a pleasant surprise.


I've been playing a lot of Helldivers lately since it was free to play on steam!
It's a bit like Alien Swarm but with giant mechs.
I think I like it more than Alien Swarm gameplay wise since it has a lot more ways to customize your loadout with upgradeable weapons and abilities but I wish there were some in-door missions like in Alien Swarm where you're inside a facility or cave with tons of rooms instead of just running around outside on pretty similar looking maps…
Still a pretty fun game!

Decided to playthrough Gothic 2. Doesn't really seem like much of an improvement over the first game. The beginning is even more tedious with the combat changes too.

Also don't know why everyone says to skip the first game and jump into the second. You play as the same person in both games, they take place 2 weeks apart, and many characters from the first show up in 2. Feels like you'd be missing a lot if you just skipped it.


That era of graphics is probably my favorite. Detailed and realistic enough to be aesthetically pleasing, but still distinctly "video-gamey". Maybe it's because I grew up with a PS2.


I actually prefer the first game over the second, the whole mine setting and the different factions were a lot more interesting than the setting in Gothic 2 in my opinion although I liked both games!

Yeah I think the first game had a better premise overall too. A magically sealed off penal colony with multiple factions at war with each other? It had promise. Shame the game all but drops that when the second chapter starts up.

Animla Crossing Pocket Camp is out! I'm liking it so far!!


I saw a lot of people complaining it has the usual mobile game thing of "You must wait # hours to build thing, but you can pay to skip it!"

But the original games already had lots of waiting like that so I don't know why everyone was surprised by it.


I'm playing it too we should share friend codes and become pocketnenfrens!


So far after a few hours of playing I can say the game is VERY generous and hands out leaf tickets like candy. If you link a Nintendo account I think you can also spend your platinum points for even more ingame rewards including the tickets. Also funnily enough stuff regenerates even faster then they do in the main games like fruit regens after 3 hours compared to the 3 days it takes to regenerate in ACNL. I can't see Nintendo making lots of money on this game at all.


Anyone here play Paradox Grand Strategy Games? They're fun and all by themselves, but I've been wanting to do some MP matches for some time. CK2 EU4 Stellaris or HOI4 are all options as I own all 4.


I imagine that's only for the first few days and then the handouts start drying up, but I'll wait and see.


I finished RUINER recently and it was really fun!
The soundtrack was very good, I was surprised when I noticed a Hirasawa song playing in the background! I think the game does a good job with the atmosphere for the cyberpunk setting!
The story was so-so but it still had me invested until the end, even though it wasn't really the main point of the game in my opinion.
Gameplay wise it's pretty similar to Hotine Miami although you have an actual life bar and you also have a variety of skills and abilities that you can level up through the course of the game. There's also stuff like side quests and hidden items although I didn't pay too much attention to those, maybe something I'll look into on my second playthrough!
I'd definitely recommend the game to fans of fast action games!


I do but I'm also a filthy pirate, sorry..




Those are the only Paradox games I don't play oddly enough. Vic2, EU3, HOI3, and DH are what I usually play.


The game definitely has a unique look. Maybe I'll pick it up some time.


Sigh…. EU4 is the "new" EU game. You haven't grabbed it ? Been out for awhile now. HOI4 only came out this year I think though.


anybody else having trouble getting onto 3DS online? I hope they aren't killing it like they did with nds


It's working fine for me. And don't worry, the New 2DS just came out, it's selling well, and Nintendo is still releasing new games for it, so I doubt the servers are going down any time soon.

Are the Xenosaga series good? I liked Xenogears and Xenosaga were supposed to be the spiritual sequel. Xenogears were supposed to be a trilogy but because of the relationship between Square Enix and Tetsuya Takahashi, he had to remake it as Xenosaga instead but I've heard that it's not as good as Xenogears.

Playstation Vita and PS2. I thought the Vita would be an economical alternative to the PS4 but is seems not everything comes out on the Vita due to bullies.


I haven't played the games in years, so this just may be my nostalgia speaking, but I absolutely love the series as a whole. I would at least recommend playing the first game. Xenosaga II wasn't as good, but the third game makes it worth getting through.


So Mega Man 11 was finally revealed.

I'm not a really big fan of the whole 2.5D thing. That style always puts me off. I won't write off the whole game over it yet though. Can't be as bad as MN9… right?

Any of you looking forward to Monster Hunter World? I hope it(the series) doesn't make a turn for the worst because of it.

Also, do you play XX?


I downloaded the jp demo for xx but I never ended up buying it. MHW looks absolutely incredible though, I can't wait to play it. I think there's a beta event this weekend?

I'd give World a try if my computer could run it. I doubt it can though.


I'm considering it but I've never played a MH game before… I've seen some gameplay of older games in the series and the combat always seemed too slow-placed to my taste

I have a PS4 and PS+ sub so I'll definitely check out the beta this weekend


oh finally monster hunter is returning to sony! I was really sad when I got a vita & ps4 and capcom decided to stop making monster hunters for sony. I haven't played a monster hunter since freedom unite 2. Is it possible to emulate the ones they released for the nintendo consoles yet?


The GC/Wii emulator, Dolphin, is really good and could probably handle MH Tri. Of course you'll need a computer up to the task as well.

The developers for that WiiU emulator only seem to care about getting Zelda BotW running perfect on it. I don't know if you'll have any luck playting MH 3 Ultimate.

XX is quite fun. Some people say the flashy skills are too anime but I enjoy them. It's great to hear (read) someone say something cool as they fly past!
The nicknamed monsters do not play around too.

Same. But I hear MT Framework is like magic so who knows, it just might run. Maybe on low settings.

The combat's about positioning, timing and patterns.
It's quite common to forget all that and get tossed around if you're having a bad day or tired.

I think you can emulate 4U on citra as well and online for 3 is coming soon


I'm kind of worried about what they're going to do with the scaling difficulty in World. They have said that difficulty scales to the amount of players, which I guess might be a good thing for the average player, but I and many others enjoy playing the game solo rather than multiplayer and we enjoy that level of challenge. In fact I really didn't like 4U's village quests because of how easy they were. So if they've suddenly made it impossible to have that challenge it might just ruin the entire game for me. Hopefully it's just scaling HP and not damage, because that I can probably live with, but as far as I know they haven't really specified how it works.

Other than that though, World looks fun. I mean there are other things I don't like, like the new skill system which seems to take all the fun out of mixed sets, but I can understand why they want to simplify it for new players and it doesn't affect the core gameplay too much. The new monsters do look really cool and fun to fight and the changes to the weapons seem fine for the most part, and at the end of the day I guess that's what matters. I guess things like no loading screens between zones will be an interesting change too, although I'm not convinced that it's going to make as big a difference as everyone seems to think it makes. Same with monsters attacking each other, people make it sound like this has been some massive flaw in all the games that has been long overdue to be fixed, but I don't see how this even makes that much of a difference other than making you not have to dungbomb when a monster enters the area. And all the environmental stuff, sure it might be a fun gimmick to stun a monster using some environmental thing or whatever, but I don't think it's going to be as big of a deal as people act like it will be. Not to mention healing, which seems like the kind of thing where if you asked a lot of these people before World was announced what they think of flexing I'm sure they would have said it was a good thing and synergised well with the style of gameplay MH has, but now they are all acting like flexing was this horrible mechanic that should have been taken out ages ago and that World is going to be amazing now that it's gone.

Sorry this post ended up being so long, but I've had quite a few thoughts about this game and about what others are saying about it for a while. I know I sound pretty negative but I do think the game will probably be fun, I just have some worries and I feel like the game is getting a lot of undeserved praise, and I feel like so many people are just ignoring a lot of potential flaws and instead just saying how it's going to be the best MH game ever because it's on better hardware now.


I remember when all the Wii hacking stuff started up, someone made a mod that added all the online quests and bosses to the single player mode. Don't know how easy it would be to find, if it even still exists.


I heard blade and gunner armor got merged which kinda sucks. I like a lot of the gunner designs (I'm a bit annoyed you can't transmog blade armor to gunner and vice versa in XX). And don't forget about the regular updates. I hope band wagoners and cry babies don't run this into the ground.


I want to play Shin Megami Tensei and Persona. Anyone know where I should begin?


What are your preference and what are you looking for? If you're not put off by older graphics then Persona 2 would be a good place to start, or you could play either series chronologically. Otherwise the easiest entry point would be SMTIII:Nocturne for the SMT series or any of the Persona series from 3 onwards. The Devil Summoner series is good too, it's often overlooked.

Personally Nocturne is my favourite and if you want something with deeper plot then I would suggest playing it, the Persona series is more easygoing and there are a lot of social aspect to it.


Incidentally, I just came across this.


It's an omake side-scrolling game featuring Jack Frost and Jack o'Lantern that was originally a fake game in the trailer for Strange Journey titled Shin Megami Tensei: Synchronicity Prologue. It's free to download until the 24th of December.


I think ill start with persona 2 because I can put that on my PSP. Like do I need to play SMT 1 and 2 to understand 3? Is it better to?


This is fantastic advice as long as you're not the type of person that burns out or gives up easily, and as was already said, you don't mind old graphics. I'd actually expand on the old graphics to include heavily dated ui and gameplay too. I mean this too, follow this advice if you're willing to keep going with the series and don't mind how dated the games are.

Otherwise, just play Persona 4 Golden or SMTIV first, then move to Persona 5. I'm skipping even Persona 3 here cause a lot of people aren't used to gameplay like working your way through Tartarus anymore. This is what I would recommend to someone that wants to check the series out but clearly won't play through any of the older titles.

Deep Strange Journey is out in Japan and we should be getting a NA release soon as well.


okay i just googled smt nocturne and why is dante in this? is dmc in the same universe?


i dont mind the oudated ui and graphics, so i'll start with persona 2 then?


Sounds like a solid plan to me, enjoy fren!


I wouldn't give up on the series though if you find Persona 2 isn't your thing, just move onto the next one and see if that works better for you.


No, he was just added as a guest character in the second version of the game.
Go for it. Start with Innocent Sin, and if you enjoy it, play Eternal Punishment as well.


alright thanks guys!


Not exactly, it's a crossover but he is part of the plot as well. It will be explained in the game.


ah ok. one of the reasons im so interested in the series is how much they are influenced by Jung, and gnosticism


The SMT and Persona series are independent plot-wise in each entries but there are direct connections between the SMT series and especially Persona 1&2(takes place in the same world and shares characters). You don't have to play the older ones to understand the newer games but it makes a nice addition to know the reference alluded across the series.


Same goes for me, Nocturne blows my mind in that regards with the world building and the concepts present in the game.

I'd recommend starting with the later Persona games since those are a bit more beginner friendly, 3 and 4 are usually recommended to beginners, haven't played 5 yet. Digital Devil Saga is pretty beginner friendly too but not nearly as popular as the Persona games although it's a good alternative if you're looking for a different setting.
If the social stuff and modern setting isn't your thing and you're more interested in the gameplay aspect then Nocturne is probably a good starting point but keep in mind that it's one of the more difficult games in the series.
There's no real reason to play the games in order since they are only loosely connected, at best, story wise and the only localized versions of the first SMT games are for the iOS as far as I know. If you want to play the older games in the series then Persona and Persona 2 for the PSP are probably your best bet.

From what I know the two companies made a deal, they get to put Dante in the game and in exchange one of their artists designed the devil trigger forms for Dante and Vergil in DMC3. Very stylish!


I ended up starting with nocturne, kinda wish I went with persona 3
