@Ralizah my friend is offering me his older model. I believe graphics card is a GTX 660. I am not gonna buy it from him for now but maybe later. RAM in it is about 8 GB

@Pizzamorg I would buy 5 over Nocturne for now

I'm gonna get both (:

We got about a month until 5 right? So I figured I'd play Nocturne in the meantime.

Game throws you into the action super quick.

Calls the game a massive technical showpiece for the system, even moreso than Dragon Quest XI S.

Says the difficulty is decently challenging even on Casual difficulty ("safety" difficulty isn't available)

Better storytelling than Nocturne.

"Love letter to the series, but feels new."

Uncapped framerate, bleh. Says it can hit 60fps in smaller areas.

"World is huge, but not BotW big."

Hasn't encountered any dungeons yet, but overworld features side-quests, collectibles, and exploration.

You can explore the school, but "it's not Persona."

Says Atlus hasn't come anywhere close to showing off all the stuff in this game, even in his limited time with it.

Gushes about the soundtrack.

@Ralizah framerate isn’t bad, I guess?????

Maybe Atlus will fix it or something

@anoyonmus The only thing they could "fix" is introduce a cap, I imagine. Maybe this being uncapped means it'll run butter-smooth on an eventual successor system, though.

He doesn't make it sound like the framerate is hugely intrusive when it dips, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

@Ralizah so is framerate targeting 30 fps or 60 fps? If it is 30 fps and dips to 25 fps, then it really shouldn’t be bad then. It’s barely noticeable.

I do hope they cap the framerate or at least make it an option to do it

@anoyonmus I imagine most of the game is probably around 30fps, since you're in a large open world much of the time. It sounds like it dips when a lot of demons are on screen at once in the environments.

About what I'd expect from a demanding Switch game like this.

@Ralizah that shouldn’t be too surprising then. Even musou games are like that, I believe.

Also just saying, every game has technical issues. Even first party Sony and Xbox games

I’m keep peeking between my fingers as this approaches, especially when the previews came out. Spencer’s above was a lot more informative for me than most of the others.

This isn't out for a couple of weeks yet, is it? So if they trend remains, they'll drop probably about a day before the game comes out or on the day it comes out.

@JaxonH I'm glad some previews have emphasized that, even early on, there's a lot that Atlus just isn't showing, because after years of silence I can't help but seek out and absorb every little bit of info I can about the game.

This last half month is going to be the worst. It's like the days leading up to Christmas when you're a kid.

All, and especially @Ralizah, how long does it usually take for atlus games to go on digital sales? I'm soooooo tempted to preorder just because I wannit I want I wannit right now, but I also have a dozen and 10 games to play and probably won't even get to it more that for giggles for a short while, so if a little patience saves some cash, might as well pretend to be a mature adult and demonstrate patience. BUTIWANNIITNOWSOBAAD!

Ahem...

@NEStalgia Depends.

Taking a couple of their last few releases into account:

Tokyo Mirage Sessions took almost a year to get a 33% discount on the eshop:

SMT III: Nocturne HD remaster took scarcely two months before it started dropping in price in digital sales:
https://www.dekudeals.com/items/shin-megami-tensei-iii-noctur...

Nocturne HD was sort of a cash grab, so I'm not surprised it dropped in price quickly. Being an ambitious exclusive on the system, I'm inclined to think SMT V will take longer before it starts dropping in price significantly

SMT IV: Apocalypse took five months before it went on sale digitally:
https://en.psprices.com/region-us/game/949699/shin-megami-ten...

Strange Journey Redux appears to have taken closer to eight months:
https://en.psprices.com/region-us/game/2336614/shin-megami-te...

The game WILL go on sale eventually. It just depends on how long you're willing to wait for the price to drop to a reasonable degree.

Keep in mind that pre-ordering the game should still net you a free steelbook.

I mean, I have my opinion on what you should do, but I'm also a rabid fan, so that's neither here nor there.

@Ralizah The steel book really tempts me..... And I was planning on digital, lol 😂

Haha I'm also a rabid fan so I'm trying to talk myself out of it. It's not so much that I insist on a sale on it so much as I'll kick myself if I pay full, end up not playing it for months, and then see it on sale anyway. Buying now is more fomo/digital hoarding for the backlog than actually buying it . And unlike Nintendo games I know it's possible...

I actually like smt games in the summer as outdoor handheld games. A little ritual from the 3ds Atlus boom era, so in all likelihood I'll play the game a few hours then save it for then. Maybe.

Still have nocturne.... But honestly I'm not that into the old school design anymore. And I still have p5r on the backlog!
