This week I decided to continue my foray into the Shin Megami Tensei series and purchased Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army. This one is interesting in that it's an action RPG, rather than a typical turn-based RPG like most SMT games (or at least all the ones that I've played thus far). I've been having a blast playing it so far, so I'd say the action RPG gameplay was a good idea. It keeps things fresh. 



My favorite part about Devil Summoner is that you can actually control your demons directly, in battle and on the map. The thing that I really enjoyed about Nocturne was that I was finally about to see more of the Megami Tensei demons, through conversing with them, battling them and recruiting them to your party. Now, in Devil Summoner, I can take things a step further and fully control them! I've been having a ton of fun just walking around town as Jack Frost, investigating things and such. 

Actually, I think my new favorite SMT demon might be Mokoi. He's been in other games that I played, but I never got much of a sense of his character. But he's hilarious in Devil Summoner. He makes ridiculous sounds, he walks funny, he throws a boomerang and catches it with his head. Even his dialog is funny, as is the dialog for many other demons ("No praise needed. I know I rule.").

I haven't beaten the game yet. I just encountered Rasputin for the first time. I'm having a blast, though, and I can't wait to see where the crazy storyline goes.
