Cheap tricks (and treats) don't come cheaper than free.


Already well-stocked in the demon department, Shin Megami Tensei: IMAGINE wasn't content to just ride its dark thematics out this Halloween. Pieces of unique equipment sets for guys and girls, the R's and Elegant Sorceress sets, respectively, can be obtained by collecting Pyro Jack varieties and talking to DB Saien by the Shinjuku Docks. If you remember to ask for a Treat, there's a chance you'll get one of the set items, as well as three colors of Pyro Jack hats, a Drill COMP unit, and some fall-themed snacks. DB Saien also offers a Trick option, which can result in somewhat unpleasant surprises.

And, finally, newcomer Bullet Run isn't being left out of the festivities, at least not entirely. While the male side of the character spread has little to look forward to besides a new, leather-daddy Domination set (which has its own ladies' variant) and some masks in the Style section, those of a more feminine persuasion can snag a cute, tiny, purple witch's hat, or a more sinister-looking evil witch mask.

With all these options, and likely a few more that I may have overlooked, there's no reason even the cash-strapped gamer can't find someplace to get a little dressed up and pretend the someone else they're already pretending to be is pretending to be yet someone else entirely this October. May your questing, deathmatching, or whatever other playstyle fits your taste be filled more with treats and less with tricks, devils, and skeletons. Unless, of course, you're supposed to be killing devils and skeletons. In which case, more power to you.

About nekobunone of us since 5:17 PM on 06.29.2007

Hi, I'm Chris, though I've been going by nekobun and variants thereof for so long, I kind of answer to both anymore.

While I've kind of got my own thing going in the realm of indie coverage, at least in the form of playing through (and streaming) (and writing about) the huge backlog I'm developing of games gleaned from various indie bundles, I try to keep my more mainstream, game-related features here, as well as opinion pieces on the industry at large, out of mad love for the 'toid. When I'm not rambling here or trying to be clever in comments threads, you can catch me rambling on Facebook and my Twitter, and trying to be clever in the Dtoid.tv chat.
