Tips for P4: use Goho-m's! (or however they are spelled) Get as far as you can in a dungeon and then use one if you are too weak to continue without dying. When you return to the dungeon, you can start fromt he farthest floor you reached if you want.

Yeah I know about them. I just didn't know at the beginning, that they would take you back to the first floor, and let you continue later. P3 had an item like that too, so I still kept going, thinking a warp point would be coming up. I use them now, but man, are they a lot of money...I can only get to like, 45000, and then I have to buy items, and all my money goes away...

Also, fun note: I beat P4 (on easy) without fusing ANY Persona. Its more important to have a balanced, leveled party since they have a varied party. However, the protagonist's starting Persona's magic is also pretty weak.

Congrats. Atlus always hooks it up. I'm surprised GameStop didn't strip the bonuses and try selling it separate.

Dezner, FES I believe even uses your old P3 save data for NG+ if you want to. The Answer is basically a second game; it doesn't require any save data. You can play The Answer without ever doing The Journey, if you want to for some reason.

And IIRC, Nov. is pretty close to the ending. The final months go by pretty quickly. I finished The Journey in right around 75 hours, so unless you've been spending a ton more time grinding and doing side stuff than I did, you're probably not too far off.

Good news everyone! I managed to eBay SMT: Digital Devil Saga (no.1 only) for just $29.01 and received it today! I'll update with impressions if anyone is interested.

Awesome, thanks! Whenever I get Okami finished, I'll have to give P3 another crack. :p

Well, SMT: Digital Devil Saga impressions time! First off, the good stuff. The cutscenes and voice acting is/are very well done and are something to look forward to. Unlike the Persona series, they are actual cutscenes, not just voiced textboxes. The battle system is pretty familar, with 3 party members using attacks and spells (BUFU!) although in DDS, there's a new system that gives and takes turns away. The bad part? I'm not quite halfway in (I think) and I'm just not getting into it. The dungeons are a little too nonlinear for such a high random encounter rate and the FFX-esque skill-learning system is daunting to say the least, although it IS easier than in the mentioned game. The bosses are cool and I want to like the game more, but it's so hard to know what skills you should be learning and apparently I made a "decision" early on that results in me not being able to import my clear data into DDS2. That's okay though, because while it's okay/good, I won't be picking the sequel up. ~7/10.

No problem. I really didn't care for it and stopped playing halfway or so in. I'll prolly resell it on ebay and try to get my money back (might be able to even make a profit as its rare and worth a pretty penny for a used game).


I'm surprised no one has talked about Devil Survivor here yet.

I've never played any other SMT games, but Devil Survivor is all right, if strategy RPGs are your thing. They're not mine... seriously, the story was the only thing keeping me going at the end -- it had interested me at first, the whole RPG-set-in-modern-Tokyo thing (reminded me of TWEWY, even though I know SMT came first, so i had to give it a shot), but after getting about halfway through the game, i was so freaking done with the battles. I had to know what was really going on, though, so I kept playing. :P It gets religious, though, so beware if that's not something you want to deal with.

anyway, at this point, I'm having a hard time forcing myself to try for one of the other endings. By the time I came to the last big fork at the end, I had Naoya's, Atsuro's, Yuzu's, and Amane's paths to choose from (chose Amane's, because I was in a benevolent mood), and it really irritates me that there's only one save file for the game (you can't save a copy in a different slot if you decide to continue on, and of course you want to save before each major battle in case you lose!), so if you want to try for one of those endings, you have to work your way allllllll the way back to the end through the week's events and all those battles, which of course will take hours, New Game+ or not. :(

In fact, I think I'll hit up YouTube to see if anyone's put up the other endings there yet. That'll save me a lot of time and hassle. :3

So, I decided to re-sell my copy of SMT: DIgital Devil Saga on eBay. If you're hunting for it, feel free to check it out but I didn't care for it that much. (Not bad, just lost interest.)

Well, I started playing P4 again (After getting FFVII and MGS off the PSN, I got addicted to them...) and I just beat the Lab place. How much longer is the game...?

If I remember correctly, the lab is like...70% through the game. I'm not sure though.
