Old School Games: Shin Megami Tensei games


Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
My price: 39.99

Still in the plastic. I thought "Oh hey, I'll buy Persona 4 new. Since I'm only a few weeks away from beating Persona 3." No. Wrong. Read the last paragraph above to find out where I'm at and what's going on. I really, really wnat to take it out of the plastic and try it out, but I'll wait. I told myself to wait until I was done with Persona 3 and I'll wait. I don't care how long. An interesting thing about this is that this is the only time I've had a game in the plastic for this long. Unlike some collectors, I'd rather PLAY my games than look at them or just have them.

June 20, 2009 I opened Persona 4. I've yet to play it now. I noticed the price of the game has dropped a little, and I probably should have kept my copy in plastic for resale. But I'm not a resaler. I bought this to play it. And when I do, I'll be sure and talk about it here. June 24, 2009 I'm now playing Persona 4. Today or tomorrow I'm going to buy the new game in the series on DS.

And that’s it for the PS2 games. Or one’s that are in English. Except the one that just got released on DS! And the few gameboy titles. Also the one title on Virtual Boy (seriously) that's related to the series. And maybe a few more.

Being in a Megaten mood today, I also now have English versions of Shin Megami Tensei and Shin Megami Tensei II. I’ve yet to play them, but I will. And as soon as the original Nintendo ones are translated, I’ll play those. The other spin off’s, the If… and whatever else there is (devil summoner on saturn for example), I’ll play it. One title for the xbox of all things is only in Japanese and I can’t find any information on. There’s an MMO I’m going to start playing soon, if you want to play with me e-mail me: [email protected] I’d love to play with some people who are into this stuff. I know I missed quite a few, don’t yell at me. When and if I get time to find and play them, I’ll be sure and update this page.

Supplemental websites:
A full list of the Megaten games on Wikipedia, including English releases.
Hardcore Gaming’s articles on the series.
Gamefaqs of course has information, if you can find it.
Megaten Wiki
Megami Tensei Wiki

If you want to check back from time to time, I’ll be sure and tell everyone when I update this and I fully intend to do so.

Coming soon as an actual book you can buy The Bonerquest. Hopefully you'll buy a copy when I'm done with it.

Will you accept The Bonerquest?

Zombies Ate My Neighbors is the best game ever.

Read fun articles Josh (Charlie) wrote for Tomopop or Nukezilla! Professionalism! Also I did some news for Destructoid. Sort of a real writer!

Check out Josh Hayes, a name Charlie uses for journalism on the internet so that he can say silly personal things without the fear of them being exposed openly. That and to hide from people he knew who he don't want to find him, not no way, not no how.
