Were the Manikins of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne based upon the Popol Vuh of the Mayans?
I want to be fully clear; I was able to max Luck by level 42. It's my 7th playthrough of Nocturne from the point of view of having played 4 full playthroughs of Nocturne in its PS2 form on my 60 GB PS3 back in the early 2010s and my third playthrough of the PS4 version of the HD Remaster. I had to level up vitality for the hospital to clear the hospital dungeon faster, but after that I only ever increased Luck and relied upon NG+ bonuses of higher level demons to get through the game. So, by level 42, Demi-fiend had a maxed out Luck Stat.
A small portion of my improved Thematic Analysis of Nocturne.
I’ve cogitated on what to say and how to address certain viewpoints within the Megami Tensei community who treat mine as idiotic or “crazy” and after writing down a list of Pros and Cons on different ways to approach this, I’ve concluded that I’m not going to bother anymore. I’ve written a set of objections … Continue reading My Thoughts on the Megami Tensei Franchise and Community
This will contain massive spoilers to the Raidou version of the True Demon Ending / Rejection route of Nocturne.
Nocturne HD Remaster makes it clearer: The Manikins represented Fascism under Futomimi.
With the full release of Nocturne HD Remaster, here's a short General Impressions for people on the fence or curious about early game experiences from someone who got the Deluxe early access edition.
Well, that earlier expiration date by Fanatical was wrong, evidently.
Fanatical is providing a Steam Preorder Sale for select countries until April 6th, 2021.
https://youtu.be/nuv1Rs_VcKo?t=8017 At 2:13:37 Credits go to Buffmaister for rapidly going through the entire game on Merciful (with the boss battles being on Hard mode) for the True Demon Ending route on the Dante version. Dante version has no epilogue just like before. No changes and while the scene after defeating Kagutsuchi is absolutely fantastic in … Continue reading Completely Disappointed with the HD Remaster of Nocturne: Last TDE scene is the 4:3 Bordered PS2 version
I understand it is a Remaster of the second re-released version in Japan meaning the Amala Labyrinth was the extra bosses and dungeons from years prior. We’re getting Dante as DLC likely for licensing reasons pertaining to Capcom along with the addition of voice acting, but the direction of these other planned DLC has really … Continue reading Progressively less enthused by Atlus Japan’s direction of the Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster
Toxicity as villainy. How SMT Nocturne presents a well-written toxic human being as arguably the true villain of the main plot of SMT Nocturne.
Be warned it spoils SMT1, SMT2, SMT3 Nocturne, SMT4, and a bunch of animes made by Go Nagai and Megazone 23.
Note: This'll contain Major Spoilers for Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha versus King Abaddon and Major Spoilers for Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne.
Don't mind this, just me being a total nerd. lol
One of my favorite games ever is getting an HD Remaster and I couldn’t be more excited! >:)
Examining the unresolved mystery in SMT Nocturne: Who was the Lady in Black? Surprisingly, it probably isn't Paimon. Read and find out why. Here are my best guesses based on my research into the best kept secret of SMT Nocturne.
If you need convincing that Eirikrjs has no idea what he's talking about, then please give this a read. I debunk Eirikrjs by quoting SMT Nocturne itself.
SMT Nocturne is referencing the Qliphoth, not the Sephirot as Eirikjrs claimed; there's some evidence to show Eirikrjs knew it and deliberately lied.
