        The store page is the same as the old version, that version is steak deck verified. When the game is updated with the updated denuvo, it may be broken. Such things have happened with Capcom game being Steam Deck verified for a year or more and then it being completely broken by the adoption of denuvo and the green check still being there for a few days after it was broken.

    • 2 weeks ago

      The heal is for "a tiny amount of restoration" and the offensive item "deals a small amount of damage". Both of them are said to be for battle, so the tiny heal seems like you can't use it outside of battle (but not 100% sure on that). So unless the heal can be used outside of battle (which I doubt), there seem to be early game use items at best.

    I liked SMT 4, but really disliked persona 4 and 5 (tried both for like 20h each). They were way too easy compared to SMT, and frick high school life I'm too old for that. Too many cutscenes too. Is SMT 5 just as teenager-y or more like 4?

      SMTV has teenage characters and school bullying melodrama. The reason why it’s not as bad as Persona is the lack of emphasis on the story. Persona has dozens upon dozens of hours of cutscenes, while SMTV has like an hour or so. I personally found the “story” in SMTV to be non-intrusive for the most part. Apparently SMTVengeance will have a bigger story focus unfortunately.

                I'm a big fan of both WRPGs and JRPGs, and the biggest advantage JRPGs have will always be that, in being comparatively less complex, they're able to better take advantage of their systems and provide a more tightly designed experience. In essence it comes down to encounter design and whether or not it actually pushes you to engage with the different mechanics. WRPGs often fail to really take advantage of their complex systems with interesting encounter design, and whilst I don't think their complexity necessitates lackluster encounter design, I do think it makes it far more likely. Still, when a WRPG rises above that shit, it can be really damned good, it's just rare and even when it happens it's not always consistent.

      Yes, SMT 5 is much more teenager-y than other SMT's, and also the game sucks on so many levels.

      Story and the endings are fricking laughably bad, gameplay is mixed, the fighting itself is good but you can't frick up that part, my main problem was with the level scaling which basically made you completely unable to fight enemies that were 7 levels above you, no matter how much you prepared, how many items you had, how lucky you were, you just simply were dealing single digit damage.

      Also worth mentioning, the level scaling was probably there so that you can buy the DLC where you can increase the Mitama spawn rate so highly that you can get to level 99 in like 2h of grind.They're apparently removing the scaling in Vengeance though.

      The exploration was also pretty boring. The game is not Nocturne 2, the only thing that has a Nocturne-y vibe is the aesthetic but that's it.

      I wanted to buy a Switch solely for this game but played it on an emulator instead, and oh boy, if I bought a Switch just to play this piece of shit I'd be so disappointed.

      Just go and play 4 or Strange Journey again.

        I stopped reading there because it's blatantly untrue. SMT V is the least story dependant game in the series and the one most focused on the demons themselves over your plucky teenage compatriots. The only other games that are arguably less teen story are II and SJ because they're pure Sci-fi setting and you don't have teen allignment heads running around.

      SMT4 was trivially easy after the very beginning though. Its difficulty peaked with the Minotaur, then took a fricking nose dive and never recovered.
      SMT5 was harder all around. For the wrong reasons at times, mainly the level scaling, but it definitely was harder.

      4A on the other hand was harder and far better balanced than both of them. Shame about quite literally everything else.

        Ganker was saying Pluto and Kenji were rough back at launch, but honestly I'm inclined to agree with you. They never reached Minotuar's level, he was simply the best boss. 4A was better at least, has it's lulls but the Divine Powers boss rush and YHVH were great.

        I feel like 5 suffers the same, You have Hydra who will kick your shit if you don't know what you're doing, Nuwa aka filter mommy, Fionn who on hard mode can just RNG into a full party wipe, capped off with the multi-phase Lahmu fight that really puts a strain on your resources. After that though, none of the bosses pose any sort of threat aside Shiva and Demi. Fricking Transformer Lucifer was even a joke. 5 just felt unfinished, I'm really hoping 5V is brutal as 4A on apocalypse.

      Completely new. SMTVV is your average ATLUS re-release.
      There's the vanilla story (Canon of Creation) and a new story featuring a new waifu character (Canon of Vengeance).
      There's new content and gameplay features and such as well. Again, average ATLUS re-release.

        Most of those re-releases integrate the additions with the existing story as well as expand that story. This isn't that. Creating a completely alternate route that is parallel rather than integrated with the original story is not typical.

                The new story starts from 0, but the beginning of the new story is basically just the original with more stuff (new girl joining you and commenting on everything that's going on afterwards, a couple of new bosses appearing in the middle of the original content).

                Which happens after the entirely of SMT4 is already done. So it isn't an alternative story of 4.

                The dome literally gets broken in the Neutral ending anon. The dome is still there in 4A.
                You have not actually played either of those games if you think 4A is a sequel.
                It plays alongside 4 and diverges shortly after Flynn's big sidequest arc.

              Nocturne's story is good too; it was an attempt to tell a more minimalist story which 5 also tried and failed at probably because of the failed dev cycle.
              You're probably 100% right that the homosexual only played 3 though and yet talks about being a 'true fan'. There are a LOT of those homosexuals on Ganker

      Do you intend on playing both? If yes, then assuming the new story is actually an improvement (which is the hope), depends on if you prefer to play the best part first, or get the bad parts out of the way first and saving the best for last.
      If you are only playing one, my guess is the new route (again, under the assumption it is a better story experience)

      From the 6 hours demo, the characters often stop to talk about stuff or yell at each other when you progress a bit through each area. So, they're trying to avoid the feeling that things only happen between each area.

              Yes it would be their fault. SMTV plays fine with a barely serviceable story, and they seem to be already addressing its major gameplay issues such as level scaling and postgame difficulty.

It's only a potential issue for people who actually care for at least an iota for story, which you clearly do not. Just skip all the cutscenes and enjoy your gameplay and leave the actual criticism to others who actually want to have the game improved on all fronts, not just a part of it.

          It is not censorship because that is the way it was intended. It is suppose to be a silhouette. Its hotter because you think she is naked. It is a tease.

            No i don't think she is naked. The model exist, you can clearly see it, and is obscured for a precise reason. Because she is doing a sexy pose and her breasts juggle. That's censorship by definition.

                They removed the skirt in the animation so it looks like she is naked. To me she does look naked in the animation. They use to do that in cartoons and movies, show a woman's silhouette from a changing screen. I think that was the vibe they were going for.

                Thats an extremely dupe reasoning to justifying censorship because if they wanted to to for that effect there are way better ways to do it. Also if this was their effort why bothering to just dim down the lights (if you up the lighting you can "dimmer" the black cover) instead of completely blacking the model?

                Why does that matter? In both cases, the model is going to appear black. And if the alternative you suggest makes her less black, it reduces the effectiveness of the presentation since you'll be able to see her clothes.

                By your extreme logic, being behind a veil would still be censorship. And it doesn't change the fundamental point: the ''''''''''''censorship''''''''''' is to make the character appear naked when obviously they cannnot literally make the character appear naked. Any technique that does this is equivalent, and any technique that doesn't make her appear naked is a downgrade (this includes removing the "censorship" entirely and just showing her without the skirt part of the dress).

                She is seducing them with her silhouette. It was a common trope. Not everything has to be in your face. Sometimes women are hotter clothed than naked. In this case, her silhouette and she could be naked is hotter to me than her doing it in her normal outfit.

              Right. It was a good decision for the weak hardware. We aren't on that weak hardware anymore. The visual effects in SMTV are better than the 3DS games, and a SMTIV remake would likely look better than even that if they did it.
              >I dont want them tampering with the game other than making all the assets 1080p appropriate
              I get this. I just don't agree with the notion that being .pngs is better. The only reason they did it was became 3D doesn't look so good on the 3DS, and also making them .pngs saves time so they could fit more demons into the game.

                To be clear, if they rerelease SMTIV, I am pretty sure it will be a regular port, not a remake. I don't think the conversion to 3D would be worth the effort in Atlus' eyes, as you said. I just think it would have been cool if it did happen (provided they don't frick up other stuff in the process).

                Wasn't P3 a different case though? Since presumably the P3P was to allow people to experience FeMC who wouldn't be in the remake? Even if the remake was just SMTIV and not SMTIVA with it, they could just release SMTIVA standalone as a port to fill the hole.

    when has an "enhanced edition" of an Atlus game ever been better than Vanilla?

    P5R is worse than P5
    P4G is worse than P4
    P3R is worse than P3

    How is SMTVV not gonna be worse than SMTV? Usually it's because of the balance of RPG systems that these enhanced editions are worse. Like P5 Vanilla had a pretty tight difficulty curve on Hard. Royal made the entire game a joke you just sat through.

      Because the base version of SMT V was so blatantly unfinished that it really doesn't matter what they add. As long as it addresses the plethora of issues the original had, it'll be leagues ahead of it.

      Normally, they frick up the balance AND make the story worse. This time, they might not frick up the balance, and even if they do, as long as they improve the story/characters a lot (which they have a LOT of room to do), it can still offset the balance downgrade.
      Also Nocturn Maniax and Persona 3 FES were improvements over the original. I'd argue DDS Overlocked as well.

      We'll have to see how the balance is affected. Vanilla V was actually really well balanced, arguably the best balanced Atlus game, but they've also clearly put a lot of thought in VV's mechanics so it may work out well. I have a lot of faith in Vengeance because they left the entire original game in the game as an option to play as that instead of Vengeance, which I think is the best way to do added content.

          how is this the mark of a well balanced game?

          First of all, that's not what level scaling means. Second of all the damage calculations are not as aggressive as you describe. And third, the reason it's a well balanced game is that their is a lot thought into putting you into the desired level range, the game usually puts you at exactly the right range for next story context doing sidequests and side objectives, you will never have to grind. The skill balance is also phenomenal, they all are fully viable and have their niche, and the MP economy is very tightly designed. It's also a rare RPG with fully viable status ailment LCK builds.

            i was cruising through the game and when i reached this guy all my attacks were doing shit damage despite me being able to handle the bosses prior to him. So i had to stop all my progress and just start doing all of the sidequests that i havent done (basically all of them) or just grind, i did not like this.

              Fake News, Taito's gimmick is that it's actually an open zone where you can reach the final bosses as soon as you arrive. The way they block you from clearing them quickly is that they're way above your level, but doing sidequests that also open up at the same time will prepare you. This includes story important sidequests that unlock a new part of an earlier map, and recruiting demons that are immediately strong enough to take on the boss (Fionn, Adramalech and Futunoshi, Tao already at their range too). What you're describing isn't playing the game it's playing like a moron.

              That was the entire point of the area. You'll be going into it at like level 55, you're meant to do the sidequests and abcesses in that area. Taito is also very open and the branch leaders are the end of area bosses essentially.
              You can say it's bad design and maybe the bosses' levels are too high but I liked the side quests so I didn't mind. This area might have been the entire reason for the extreme level scaling but that's just a guess on my part.

            The level scaling is dogshit. It's not a good thing at all. It incentivizes grinding over building a good team and strategizing.
            They obviously tried their best to always keep you "at level" and never stray too far below or above it with the scaling exp rewards, but it just doesn't feel very good when your build basically doesn't matter and you'd get a bigger leg up over bosses by just grinding another level than optimizing your build and team. There's a reason they went back on it and highlighted "diminished level scaling" as a big part of their marketing.

            By the way, SMTV is the only MegaTen game that has level scaling of ANY kind.

              Technically there's physical skills that scale with your max HP in loads of games, which increases as you level, soooo
              But yeah, them rebalancing the level scaling is great. It was really harsh. 1-2 levels below the enemy it was +/-10% taken/dealt per level, then 3-8 levels below the enemy it was another +/-5% per level. Conversely 1-3 levels above the enemy it was +/-10% per level
              Shit was way too much. Going from 2 levels below a boss to 3 levels above a boss made a bigger difference than hitting Weaknesses vs Neutral dmg...

                That's wrong. Level is at the very least a factor in magic damage in Nocturne.

                >Magic DMG = 3 * Power * [2 * MagicStat + 70 - (0.4 * Lvl)] / 100.
                So it really doesn't matter much unless you go nuts with it at the endgame and is a far cry from the single level giving you +/-10% damage taken/dealt in SMTV though.
                It's a fricking stupid argument to begin with though, the level scaling in SMTV was so fricking atrocious the actual developers made them lowering it into a selling point for this enhanced version. When even the devs say "we fricked up" you know it's bad

                I think the effect from level in V was too aggressive, but people are completely out of it when they describe how much it affects things. The main difference between V and Nocturne's calculations is that VIT in Nocturne only affects max HP while in V it is also used for damage reduction. Because of that you'd see big fluctuations in damage at big (10 level) differences, but it wasn't actually a problem except to people specifically trying to make it a problem.

                Taito being non-linear with big level jumps is where most people end up noticing the level scale. People don't need to be trying to skip content to end up in battles with huge level differences there.

                I disagree there. It did make a dramatic difference and felt really awful.
                I remember when I was preparing for Shiva and optimizing my team I gained 2 or 3 levels while doing it and my Nahobeaner despite having nigh on identical stats and skills would suddenly absolutely demolish him to the point that I didn't even need any of my shiny new demons. Felt incredibly bad and unsatisfying for what should have been a really fun fight.

                I do like SMTV a lot and pre-ordered VV day one so it's not like I'm an anti or anything, but in my opinion the level scaling shouldn't just have been diminished a bit but removed entirely.
                It factoring into damage formulae a tiny bit is fine and all, but it should NEVER be a sizable procedural modifier for both damage received and dealt at the end of it. That was one of the stupidest decisions they made for SMTV.

                That's blatantly untrue. The only calculation in the game that doesn't factor Level is weapon skills that scale of max HP which, surprise surprise, also scales on level.

                STR calculations in Nocturne are almost identical to V's. MAG's are completely batshit insane calculations that scale spells based on the difference to the spells optimal level (generally level 36) so the farther you get from that level the less damage your spell does. VIT (max HP) doesn't use level just a straight calculation based on HP (but even without raising VIT your HP scales off level). Agility is the most moronic shit in the world where you get different hit/evade buffs based on your agility status compared to your level, so if you pump agility at low levels it does literally nothing, but if you aren't raising agility leveling up can cause you to LOSE your stat buffs, it's completely mental. LCK doesn't do anything at all in Nocturne, just minigame shit.

                You have to come up with contrived scenarios or build your entire team specifically around the others skills for them to be superior.
                For damage Critical is simply the best general purpose skills bar none.
                Of course Feast and Banquet are great support for bosses early on, but as a general all purpose damage skill Critical is just busted beyond believe. It really should not have allowed you to crit with Magic.

                Critical doesn't actually give you any extra press turns in practice for most encounters because a well constructed team is going to be capable of landing the weakness and consistently generating max turns. For reference, as long as slots 1/3 are capable of landing a crit or hitting a weakness, you will always get the full 8 turns you need. Nahobino can even abuse half turns from sending demons back to stock or swapping them out, too.
                Meanwhile, we have stuff like Dance/Adversity that drastically increase damage output, Feast/Banquet that instantly swing the buff in your favor especially when used by a Boon Boost demon (and a surprisingly large amount of enemies don't have purges for both). And most importantly, it has a skill that casts debilitate and has a 100% chance to instantly land any ailment that the boss isn't immune to which also includes Seal. And let me tell you, it gets very broken when a moronic amount of bosses including popular road blocks like Lahmu 2 can't use anything for like 3-4 turns and you can just burst them down.

                By the way, using Dance for reference
                2x Ice Breath = 180 Power for 25 MP
                1x Bufudyne = 215 Power for 35 MP
                4x Ice Breath = 360 Power
                1x Bufubarion = 265 Power
                This is Ice Breath, we aren't talking about Calamity or Glacial Blast which are even stronger.

                If you're making any remotely competent magic demon, then they're using the multi target spells because they're superior to the single targets in 99% of the fights and the ones where you don't use them are the ones where you use the piercing ones instead or simply use Impalers before firing them off.
                You barely have to do any "building" to make Dance better. Especially later on when physicals are swapping over to Critical Aura stuff to guaranteed Criticals so Crit is just wasting your bar.

                Single target is pretty good in V because so many end bosses are multi-battles where you're fighting a party of enemies instead of one strong enemy. For Shiva for instance you'll probably be doing more consistent damage with Bufubarion than with Glacial Blast because you don't have to worry about his party taking hits away from him.

      However, they're adding tons of optional stuff that should make the end-game better, like we've seen one of the boosted Magatsuhi demons using Freikugel EX. There's also all the boss rematch stuff with levels that can just get higher and higher.

      It's hard to say at this point because all we have is marketing, but the story seems to be improved from how bare bones the original SMTV was, and Atlus did seem to take that criticism about the lack of story to heart.

            I mean, as much as I love FF6 to death it kinda already is.
            If you believe that 10 was the last good one as I do, then the series has been bad longer than good (FF1 to FF10 - 14 years, FF10 to now, 23 years)
            If you think FF 12 was the last good one, then it's the same in just 2 more years kek (19 years vs 17 years).

      No, even the developers recommend doing Vengeance first.

      Creation's story was too barebones to the point it got complaints. Seeing it as an extra option for a replay after knowing the characters in a more developed route should work out better.

    • 1 week ago
      Anonymous

      Honestly we just don't know.
      Atlus have said it's optimal to start with Vengeance and it should offer a more complete experience, but that could just be their sales team talking so people don't buy the original dirt cheap SMTV instead of the brand new release.
      The original story was kinda dogshit and clearly very unfinished so unless they suddenly start referencing stuff from it constantly I'd be inclined to agree even without having played it though.

      I fricking hate how in SMT3/5 all of this demonshit suddenly happens, and the normie students are completely unphased by it all.

      In 3 an undisclosed amount of time passed between the Conception and you waking up, it's very likely they all spent weeks if not months coming to terms with and getting used to it while you were in a coma getting mindraped by worms. The bigger issue there is them surviving the beginning stages at all. Later on it makes sense since they all have divinities looking after them in various forms, but early on when they are surrounded by mindless Pretas it's kind of a stretch.
      5 is pretty fricking dumb with it. The entire world they've ever known turns out to be an illusion placed on them and they all take it with stride and go on like nothing even happened.

      Entirely new alternate scenario, you can choose to play old game or the new game at the start of the game. Every demon has unique abillities and a bunch of them have fusion spells now. Changes to damage calculations so level isn't such a strong factor. All the human characters are now recruitable and usable in battle (including Demifiend). VR rematch for all story bosses that amp up their level endlessly, NG+ that raises all enemies up 100 levels, player level cap raised to 150. New ability to interact with your party demons outside of battle and chat with them. There isn't a super dungeon tho, the dungeon you saw was probably the new one in the new story that replaces the castle on that route.

Backwards compatibility would be cool vut neither Nintendo nor Atlus would miss the chance to just resell you the same games.

      Shiva and Lucifer probably Creation exclusive while Masakados and Satan will be the Vengeance super and last boss respectivdly. Demifiend will be ultimate super boss on either route tho.

        Masakado actually might be Creation exclusive. The trailer showed his encounter in Chiyoda and we've seen nothing Vengeance related story-wide in Chiyoda. It's also confirmed the characters don't join the battle against the Demon King's armies in Vengeance's story.

        Of course, he also could just be thrown into a different location in the Vengeance route.

                Shameful. I see a bunch of posts screeching about reporting them as well. Wonder if anything came of it

                NTA but OLD TRY/ARS (underneath list of countries) for Armored Core had higher than regional price, on release hour they set it to what the price should actually be and then quickly raised it back up.

        I am uninterested in your ranting. I already bought the expensive special edition but I forgot playing games on the switch kinda blows and they announced a better version of the game before I played too much of it. I refuse to buy the game a second time at full price.
