[SMT/Persona] DX2: I'm Gacha Frost, ho!

I'm ready go tonight. There's a party, alright. We don't need the raisin for joy, oh yeah. Tick down to midnight.

Oh yeah, I guess there's an SMT gacha (?) thing on the way west, who knows when it'll get here though.

My friends who played the beta really liked it, but I know nothing about the actual gameplay. I'm signed up to be notified when it's ready to play.

so DX2 apparently has a rating system for demons I guess? anyway it's pretty funny



that and Rika being kind of an awesome goofball might be all that keeps me going with this thing 'til I eventually upgrade my phone.

I spent a little more time with DX2 last night and it seems to be running a little better. Turning off speech may have done it, weirdly? Maybe not. Definitely download the full files if yer on wifi though, and if you've got the space.

but like I said 100% of these performance issues on old/bad hardware would be gone if they had just used a 2D battle system :pacdown

Anyway, ugh, this game is actually pretty good, huh. Combat is exactly what you'd imagine based on the words "mobile SMT." It does the same smart streamlining FEH did to get battles flowing smooth and quick, but without any noticeable compromises. It really is just SMT III/IV press turn stuff in a mobile interface. That's kinda impressive actually.

Supposedly there's friend list stuff? I can't actually find my ID though.

You gotta unlock it. The tutorials are frustratingly hand holdy.

Yeah, I'm getting to the point where I think they're mostly over, so I enjoyed the game more last night than I did previously. I have friends, but they're random people that I assisted or assisted me. Not sure if my ID is unlocked yet either. I most recently unlocked aura gates but haven't tried them yet.

Somewhere before Chapter 1-9 but I don't remember exactly when. It'll show yer ID at the bottom of the Search tab on the Friends page.

I just cleared 1-7, yesterday, so I guess I'm not that far behind.

Just when I was wonder if I'll ever find the time/energy to level all these demons, I discovered that clearing 1-9 will get you Leveling Quests, which let you farm XP for multiple teams simultaneously versus nothing but weak-all Slimes. Woop woop.

I need to fuse more, but I dunno if it's a better idea to hang onto duplicate or low-rarity demons for other raisins, since there are still so many fusion options that haven't unlocked for me yet.

Oh, I'm definitely past that, but haven't had much time to play anything. I'll look for it later. These menus are not intuitive at all. That'll need to get streamlined if I'm going to stick with this game.

HYPE

Return of Femc, some cute new chick, and this is P3, 4 and 5... I already felt that PQ had too many playable characters with just 3 and 4, so I don't know how well this will work, especially with an additional P3 protagonist, but I'm excited as hell regardless.

Nice! Never bought any of those before, though. I have the Bobblehead-looking figures of Strega only because I'm shocked they even exist in the first place.

But I set up a nice little nerdy Persona shrine in my new house, so maybe when that time comes in 2019, I can add Yusuke.

December 4th US release date for the dancing games. I thought we'd have to wait until 2019, so that's nice, but it's also so close to the Tales of Vesperia release and Christmas, so money will suck that month.

Thinking of just getting the digital Vita bundle since the artbook will end up scanned online, and the PS4 code for Dancing All Night isn't something I care about since I have the Vita version of that already. Since there's no other extras, I might as well save a little money there.

I saw those today and literally said, "I've seen everything now."

I mean, there's a fairly large female fan-base for Persona, but who thought this was a good idea?

It seems to happen almost automatically once any franchise reaches a certain size

That's kind of funny...

It was also pointed out on Tumblr that Koromaru is not included in the scents, which is funny to me. The concept is already absurd enough; I'm sure people would buy the dog smell.

Edit: And an online friend pointed out that this is more evidence that an eventual P3 HD remake is coming. I sure hope so.

The Futaba PQ2 trailer was released today. Thor, she's so adorable. She has a co-op attack with Rise and Fuuka, so the support characters seem to have more of an active role in this game.
