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.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
