I just arrived to the second Boss, Nuwa. It's funny you know that you are going to die the first time you face a Boss even before the combat starts.

If you know what you're doing, that becomes rare as you go on. If you're playing in Normal or below, then that should be a given. 

I started Nocturne after being thoroughly satisfied with V, but it's tough getting used to it, feels very dated. Character movement is even clunkier here, you cannot adjust camera speed (not that it matters in a game like this, but most 3D games allow you to do so nowadays), there are lots of fixed camera angles, level design is obnoxious. IDK. Combat is almost identical, though, so I'll proceed. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Nocturne is the most frustrating RPG I ever loved and I beat it twice in the same year. Like the game makes you scream FUCK I HATE THIS SHIT! Then the game asks if you want more and you say YES PLEASE! Something about it is addicting and keeps you going. The dungeons are mostly annoying and SMTV only has 1 of those really and wasn't nearly as frustrating, since it's short. Nocturne had 1 idea for a dungeon. HAHA warp you here, warp you there!



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Anyone noticed that Nahobino is quite similar to Link (Legend of Zelda) in several aspects?
- The Protagonist never speaks
- Link has Navi, SMTV protagonist has Aogami
- You can customize its name at the beginning of the game
- When Nahobino attack with the sword...it is almost the same voice as adult link in Ocarina of Time (at least Europe version)



Zelda didn't invent the silent protag. That's always been in SMT and naming your Protag is in both SMT and persona. Having a guide is not unique to Zelda either.

Are you using buff and debuff spells? They really make a difference in battles.

There are plenty of games that have run with the OoT formula, tbh, not just Zelda games, but the translation team of SMT V surely must have used that gag specifically. Aogami is more like Fi, but Amanozako is absolutely Navi, I mean, just hear her "hey hey hey!", and she's annoying just as Navi. Amanozako is better because she finds you stuff, though. 

Also, if you're having problems with Nuwa, bring force dampeners, you'll thank me later.

I finally beat Nuwa. Thanks all of you for the advices.
I already beat 3rd Boss, this was quite easy.
I Hope this post os updated soon when SMTV reaches 1 millions.



I just beat wolfman Boss. The game is so amazing and adictive
