  • So it’s been around for nearly a decade longer and barely inching out over Persona…

    Sigh, well, I suppose that’s why they called the latest, and probably last Megami Tensei game, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final.

      They said in an interview that SMT IV Final is not going to be the last installment of SMT.

      Sadly people love Visual Novel style games more than RPGs and Dungeon Crawlers.

      Etrian Odyssey is a gem tbh.
