Shin Megami Tensei (SNES)
Taking a break from study for a long overdue update. I've loads to write about and no time to write it up. I'm going to try keep things a lot shorter from here on out as well.
Anyway on with the main show for the few people that care. Ever since I was introduced to the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) series after playing Persona 3 and 4 (absolutely amazing games by the way) I've become a little bit obsessed with the franchise. SMT has a big following in its native japan but it wasn't until 1997 in the US with Persona on the PS1 and even later in europe with the 2004's SMT: Lucifiers Call that the english speaking world got it's first taste of the series. The series has remained quite niche but has a rabid following. SMT has always been much more mature than its rival RPG franchises and by mature I don't mean gore and nudity but more so treating its audience as being a bit more intelligent. I decided I wanted to try the first game in the series to see where it all started.
