Devil Summoner 2 Making Headlines

Thursday, May 14th, 2009 by wolfzau at www.digitaldevildb.com


Is the sequel to Devil Summoner everything it should be?

Let’s find out…

The recently released “Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs King Abaddon” seems to be worth your money so says the internet buzz. Released on May 12th, the sequel to the popular first installment has gathered a rather high number of positive reviews. None of which seem to fall below the 80% mark. A high achievement indeed.

Here are some blurbs dredged from the internet…

RPGFan.com »“…one of the most vastly improved sequels I’ve ever played for an RPG.”
Thunderboltgames.com »“Raidou vs King Abaddon feels like the product of a company that listens to it’s customers.”
Destructoid.com »“Shin Megami Tensei and Devil Summoner series fans, we shouldn’t even need to say it: You need this game.”
1Up.com »“…the total revamp of the battle system makes Devil Summoner 2 more than “more of the same.”

So what is everyone so excited about?! Improved combat, graphics and extra content (not to mention multiple endings and story progression) are just some of the things praised with almost every review also adding that the game is a vast improvement over it’s predecessor in just about every way possible. But don’t take our word for it.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona (PSP) “Coming to America in 2009”

Sunday, March 1st, 2009 by Emilio Morales at nijiko.wordpress.com




In one of their more recent ATLUS Faithful emails, Atlus USA have announced that the enhanced re-make of Megami Ibunroku Persona, will reach North American PSP’s by the fall of this year. ATLUS seem to be taking this updated version of the PS1 classic seriously with reworked cut scenes, tweaked gameplay, and all new BGM featuring Persona 3 vocalist Yumi Kawamura.

Although not really surprising (the Persona series has garnered a lot of attention and attracted many new gamers to the Megaten franchise in the past couple of years) we at digitaldevildb.com can’t wait for them to localize this game, if only so that we can play it the same year that it will be released in Japan.

More information will be revealed in the following weeks including, we hope, a specified release date and some other cool goodies that will be included with the game.

Devil Survivor ready for North America come June

Saturday, February 7th, 2009 by Emilio Morales at nijiko.wordpress.com



Atlus USA announced Megami Ibunroku Devil Survivor will reach North America in June of this year. The game’s release appears identical to its Japanese counterpart. Until now, Atlus USA has made no comment regarding any “extras” to come bundled with the game or any special editions (maybe we can expect a soundtrack or something, of course, if we ever see some goodies for this game) but at least we can prepare ourselves for the wait ahead.

Gamers who’ve played the Majin Tensei series should find this game familiar and entertaining. Similarly Survivor is a fusion between a classic first person RPG and a tactical RPG. I have personally played the Japanese game and is really cool, the music and the gameplay are just fine. One interesting part of this game is the way you collect demons. You buy them at auctions and are able to see new ones every time you defeat them in battle. And of course you will be able to fuse them into ever more powerful allies.

Are you ready to survive?

Persona 3 Impressions, Release Tomorrow

Monday, August 13th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

As you all should know Persona 3’s “release date” is officially tomorrow, August 14th. It’s likely your local retailer won’t see it for another day or so afterward, so just give them a call if you’ve pre-ordered locally. Unlike Devil Summoner and Digital Devil Saga, it appears even retailers like Best Buy will be carrying this game. . . at least on their web sites. If you’ve not pre-ordered already, I would suggest you do so tonight.

If you’re still not sure, I suggest you check out Metacritic. The overall score from all submitted professional reviews puts the game at 88 out of 100 currently, which is quite good.

As for our review, I’ve unfortunately not finished the game yet. I am, however, a good 45 or so hours into it and thus feel safe posting my overall thoughts on it so far. I have no intention of attaching a score, but it might be a good read if you want some more input on the game. To keep it short: I really like it.

You can check that out here, if you so desire. Expect the Persona 3 section to expand more in the coming weeks as I (and others) progress through the game. The character and Persona sections will be revamped (hopefully to provide indepth info to those who want it, without spoiling every one else), just to give an example.

Thanks!

First Persona 3 Package Shot

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Gamespot’s product listing for Persona 3 now includes a very small image of the final package you will receive when you pick up the game. Looks pretty nice when it’s all together.

Persona 3 EGM’s “Game of the Month”

Saturday, July 28th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Continuing our last reviews post, a friend informs me that EGM has reviewed Persona 3 and given it the “Game of the Month Award”. The magazine uses a three score system, netting the game an 8.5, 9.5 and 9.5. Very nice.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a review copy for Digital Devil Database just before the delay. If there’s anything else you’d personally like to know about the game, feel free to ask in the forums. It also looks like our interview with Atlus for the title will be made available closer to the game’s new release date.

Thanks to Charles for the information.

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
