Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Part 10

April 14, 2013: Grindy-grind. Yawn.
Even the doors in Horologium open with a brutal heaviness.
Horologium? Sounds like someone has a Horo-loogie-um.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Part Nine: Calling

March 19, 2013: The Grus Grind
This dungeon is annoying~ The enemies are brutal, navigation is done mostly through warp tiles, and it looks like palette-swapped versions of earlier sectors. Gawd.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Part Seven: The Wages of Sin

April 27, 2012: Damn, Maya’s father was hot!

Masataka Amano. He’s covered wars, y’know…

Masataka Amano was a war correspondent. Before Maya met the other kids and established the Masked Circle, Masataka prepared to leave Japan to cover a war. Maya made a stuffed rabbit for him and called it Mr. Bunbun, but he refused to take it. Her father told her that if she cried, Mr. Bunbun would laugh at her. Masataka told her that he would accept Mr. Bunbun when he returned home, but he died before he could make it back.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable Part 12: The Tower

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

The 3rd Birthday Part Two: Aya Getting Married

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

The 3rd Birthday Part One: CTI Training Manual

April 1, 2011: Episode 0: Sacrifice

December 2012 – New York. Strange roots burst out of the city streets. These sentient beings are called the Twisted. Their nexus is known as the Babel.

December 2013: The Counter Twisted Investigation Team sends agent Aya Brea into the past with Overdive technology. This technology utilizes Aya’s strange powers to dive into the bodies of others in the past to investigate the Twisted. With the power of Overdive, Aya heads to Club Sacrifice in Manhattan, which is under siege by Twisted.

Overdive is also featured in gameplay. It lets Aya dive into the bodies of other soldiers and occasionally civilians. This can yield unexpected benefits like new weaponry and DNA chips, and the opportunity to trigger the skills on Aya’s DNA Board. Aya can also Overdive into enemies when they have been critically wounded (indicated by a triangular symbol over the creature) to deal devastating damage. Hitting the enemy’s weak point with a sniper rifle makes it easier to OD into them.

With Overdive, Aya can dive into the body of a healthier soldier when the one she is currently inhabiting is dying. However, losing too many soldiers in an Episode will negatively affect your final ranking. Also, there are some situations where you may run out of soldiers and have to hold out until more enter the battlefield. There are some situations where Aya has to kill a boss alone.

In the opening cutscene, you are introduced to a flurry of new characters, such as Hyde Bohr, Thelonious Cray, and the young Dr. Blank.

Aya was found on December 24, 2010 in New York in a wedding dress near St. Thomas Cathedral. She lost her memories.

Finding Maeda’s bio in the manual gave me feels.

Live-A-Live Part Eight: Green-Eyed Monsters

April 2, 2015: We limped back to the castle. The guards could hardly believe that Hash died.

The king apologized and told the trio to rest in one of the rooms.

Orsted dreamt about Alicia in the grip of the Demon King.

Stay away!”
