Hoh, Nocturne heh ? 

Kind of a surprise you haven't touched that one in the first place since it's the one most people in the gaming would've experienced the series first.

My entry in the SMT series is odd compared to most people.

The first time I played a SMT game was Shin Megami Tensei I for the SNES via emulation in the early 2000s, I didnt really play it much but gave up in the first 10 min after getting destroyed lol

My first fully played SMT universe game (though a spinoff) was SMT Persona 1 Portable for PSP back in 2011, I played SMT Persona 2 Innocent Sin for PSP and SMT Persona 3 Portable on PSP back to back - and Persona 4 OG on PS2 in 2015.

I didnt play a mainline SMT game until SMTIV for the 3DS until 2020 and after that I played through IV Apocalypse, Soul Hackers 1, Devil Survivor, Devil Survivor 2 and Strange Journey all on 3DS.

I'm planning to play III Nocturne which I have on both Steam and PS4 and planning to play OG V on Switch (to play the original route) - I'll get Vengeance later on either on PC or PS5.

In terms of how much I score the series....

Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS): 95
Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse (3DS): 93
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked (3DS): 92
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker (3DS): 96
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (3DS): 83
Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Redux (3DS): 91
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 1 Portable (PSP): 88
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 2 Innocent Sin (PSP): 85
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3 Portable (PSP): 95
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 4 (PS2): 97

And on how long it took me to beat each one....

What a journey you had so far with it. I remember browsing my local store in search of a good RPG since I hadn't got to play my 3DS in a while after Bravely Second. Found the game, though I recognized the franchise because of the internet osmosis of Nocturne popularity. 

It was love the moment I got to explore Tokyo undergrounds ! The gameplay aspects were quite addicting too.

Followed that I decided to play Devil Survivor Overclocked since it was recommended by most fans. Superb game too.

Yup. People were right in thinking the PS5 would have the edge over the Switch since it hadn't release on it yet. A nice upgrade over the original and Switch release. Will prolly wait to pick it up and it on my future Switch 2 I think



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Enjoying the game quite a bit. Already level 35. My team composition sucks, so I keep changing it around. Eventually I shall find more ideal combos. Took out a level 45 obstacle, as long as I planned properly.



xblock getting it too...really!
What a waste of time and resources on that useless porting!
They did it in hoping m$ put it on random rental pass to get bribing money 😑

Warned: Trolling

Received the Steelbook Launch Edition yesterday.  Another great JRPG for the collection.

What platform did you purchase yours on?

...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

I finally cracked and got vengeance for the switch

Initially I didn't feel like buying it because I already had the base version, but after a few good paydays I changed my mind and got it for the new stuff.

I do like that some stuff carried over though, that was nice
