There’s at least one evil penis


#367

#368

#369

those strange journey rock remixes, badass as fuck.


#370

so strange journey remake is out in jp- whats the deal? is it ok or not? @index-j bemoans it in the hween thread


#371

I love that they opened with motherfucking Ginza. :metal: And the SMT1 battle theme is so good.

The bassist is having a pretty good time.

#373

Great, so I need to buy a Switch again. :expressionless:

(lol new Final Fantasy/Growlanser-esque NA logo)


#374

yeah it’s looking like i might have to buy a switch sometime in the future if it becomes the platform all the japanese stuff ends up on

though i’ve slowly developed the same kind of ‘the very mention of this brand gives me conniptions’ thing with nintendo that a lot of people have with apple


#375

buy a switch lol


#376

Hope I feel like I can afford a Switch by the time this lands.

Atlus seems to be trying very hard to tell me this game is a lot like Nocturne, and I hope that’s true.

I don’t want it to be exactly like Nocturne. But I want it to be as interesting at every level as Nocturne is.


#377

same, and I’m trying to wait until they ship a newer tegra at least


#378

I just hope it has the same kind of cold atmosphere and setting that Nocturne had, and it isn’t just another fucking Persona 3/4/5.


#379

The faces are kind of weird on Beth and Chaos Hero, but I really want those + Bodyconian.

From Chemical Reaction.


#381

#383

persona 5 isn’t really my thing i guess

Since the SMTif… translation is out, here are the partner characters you can choose (you can only choose one):

Yumi Shirakawa
Yumi will confront you immediately and ask you to help her. She wants to save everybody. The most straightforward path. She also looks pretty cool.

Shinji “Charlie” Kuroi
Charlie’s a firestarter, twisted firestarter. He’s also hot-headed and brash. His route takes you through the World of Wrath. He likes to steal bikes .

Reiko “Winnie Cooper” Akanezawa
Reiko is the coolest cucumber of the lot. She’s calm and collected, and her route gets you some extra story. She’s the final partner option.

You get another partner option who is basically one big Devilman reference if you beat the game once.

The questions in the intro determine your character’s initial stat distribution when you begin the game, and also affect the guardians you’ll get. Each question adds a certain amount of points to a pool that are added up at the end of the questionnaire. If you get Luck type (just choose the last answer for all of the questions), you start with an extra 4 stat points (in LUK), and 5,000 Makka (the currency).

An easy way to get the initial stats you want: always give the first answer for Strength, the second for Speed, third for Balance, and last for Luck.

Your partners also have “types” that are randomly selected for them. Your partner’s HP is based on your player character’s gender, for some reason. :man_shrugging:

if_yumi_spr YUMI
Yumi’s A-type build is pretty good.

Type HP♂ HP♀ MP STR INT MAG STM SPD LUK DEF EVD MPW MEF Focus

D 17 12 10 3 5 5 3 4 4 7 7 6 6 INT/MAG

if_charlie_spfr CHARLIE
All of Charlie’s initial stats are awful. Charlie is garbage.

Reiko is much better than Charlie.
