Okay, I guess I wasn't aiming for "obscure as hell". More along the lines of "may have a good degree of fans, but gets overshadowed by another title in the series a lot".
Anyways, time to share another title: Megami Ibunroku: Devil Survivor
(or Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
), aka my first game in the Megami
Nice blend of turn-based strategy and JRPG, a cute protagonist,
and one of the more user-friendly games: in fusions, you can choose which skills to inherit (instead of rerolling skills for as long as 20 minutes), you can search which demons you can fuse
, and I actually like the lack of dungeons in this game (you grind on "free battle" spots instead). Plot-wise, it's a deconstruction of Mons games—ever wondered how Pokemon would work out in reality?
And, on a New Game+
, the game removes Anti-Grinding
, so you don't spend as much time power-leveling so you can beat Lucifer's
I've played 3 other Megami
games since (Persona 3
, Strange Journey
, the latter two of which seem to be the face of the SMT franchise in the United States) but I still have plenty of appreciation for Devil Survivor
. Totally looking forward to the sequel, especially since it's on normal DS (meaning I can hold out on getting a 3DS for now).
