November 8, 2011: Let’s Defeat (?) King Leo
King Leo went on and on about how Nahui-Ollin and the Oracle of Maia had been forgotten. He said that Joker’s face is as beautiful as a goddess. Lisa seemed to suspect that Joker was “Big Sis”.
Long story short: We had to commandeer a blimp and defeat King Leo. He wasn’t even as tough as Ixquic. Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Part Four
April 13, 2011: They retrieved some of Chidori’s personal effects from the hospital. It appears that before the end, Chidori drew nothing but painstaking portraits of Junpei. That made him feel a little better… Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable Part 12: The Tower
March 21, 2011: October. The leaves have turned. And on the 4th…
Operation Day. Fuuka sensed two Shadows in the plaza at Iwadotai Station Mall. Shinjiro and Ken were missing, but we went ahead anyway. Kasumi took Akihiko, Aigis, and Koromaru with her to confront the Shadows. Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable Part Nine: The Hanged Man
March 16, 2011: 9/12. Early Morning. Theodore called Kasumi to tell her that one of her acquaintances was in Tartarus. Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable Part Eight
March 2, 2011: Fuuka determined that the Shadow is on Shirakawa Boulevard, a hotspot for love hotels. That’s why the most recent victims of Shadow attacks and the Apathy Syndrome that they cause have been pairs and couples.
Yukari was unsure if she should go, but Junpei teased her, so she decided to tag along. “But this time, I want a piece of the action!”
Kasumi took her, Mitsuru, and Akihiko to the Boulevard…
The arcana of the next Shadow is not the Lovers, but Hierophant. Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable Part Four: The Chariot
June 5, 2011: There are varying degrees of mutation. It ranges from A (normal), to B (Benign), to C and D (Malignant). You can splice the malignancy out of corrupted OE chips…
On the field, I discovered something useful: If you activate Liberation just as you suffer a fatal blow, it will restore your health to full after the meter’s dried up!
June 6, 2011: Operation Red Fog! I finally got past the subway train section. Beyond that? Scratchers. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
I don’t really have a plan for my OE Boards. I definitely want to keep Odds Up on them. 😛
June 7, 2011: Once again, Aya’s attempt to enter the past altered the present. Thelonius vanished from the timeline. Blank realized what was happening and ran to Thelonius as he vanished, only to completely forget why he went to the rooftop in the first place.
Aya remembered seeing Kyle dressed as a groom at the altar, only to be shot offscreen. Kyle appeared before her at the Twisted nest again, and she begged him to protect Eve. He pledged his guardianship over “our little princess”.
Episode 4: The Moment of Truth
October 1, 2011: Chipping away at Operation Blue Hail. Let’s find Kyle Madigan. Continue reading The 3rd Birthday Part Three: Aya’s Counterattack
April 2, 2011: A battle with tough Twisted in T3B.
If you don’t set the OE Board correctly, Aya could wind up with a disease spliced into her DNA!
I feel bad about my guys dying due to my carelessness. What will I do when they’re not around? You just know that Aya is going to go in alone at some point.
I wasted time trying to fight a Twisted that does too much damage; is hard to hurt; regenerates health; and creates small cyclones?!
I guess the manual says to just shoot at Twisted until they’re stunned, but this particular Twisted becomes a lot more dangerous once you nail it with an Overdive Kill for the first time. It also says to heal your guys by OD’ing and hiding behind cover. SIGH
T3B‘s voice acting is better than a trailer led me to assume.
April 4, 2011: I learned how to overlay chips on the OE Board for greater effectiveness, AND I defeated the Emily Jefferson Twisted. Protip: Exploit Aya’s Liberation ability. Any time it’s full. Every time. I also took my magnum into battle.
Aya encountered Emily in Club Sacrifice. The young lady reminded Aya of someone who looked similar to her. Continue reading The 3rd Birthday Part Two: Aya Getting Married
December 29, 2011: Live-A-Live! It’s been too long, old friend.
Previously on L-A-L, we got fed up with Akira’s oddly tedious chapter.
I found a… Shower Cap.
Maybe this chapter isn’t that bad, but it’s not very intuitive. You’d think that having a telepathic protagonist would avert that, but no. Continue reading Live-A-Live Part Five
May 3, 2011: Live-A-Live, how I have missed thee.
The old master had to kick his pupils’ butts. They learned some of his moves from being on the receiving end of them. How cool is that?!
He had them train atop the mountains to build their endurance and in the forest to train their reflexes. That night, after Li and Sammo passed out went to sleep, the old master caught Yuan training alone outside. Aww.
You do not get an equal number of training sessions with the three students. The reason why is soon revealed. Continue reading Live-A-Live Part Three: Living Legacies
October 18, 2010: Three months. That’s how long it took for me to get back in the saddle again.
Well, two and half, technically.
Allow me to describe Barthandelus’ basics. He has 3.3 million HP, nasty lasers, debuffs, and two particular moves you’ll come to hate: Thanatosion Laughter and Apotosis. The former is just a brutal laser barrage. The latter neutralizes all of your buffs and cures his debuffs.
