The last few weeks, between binging on Saints Row 3 and napping with my cat, I’ve been plugging away at Shin Megami Tensei IV. It’s a massive game, bursting with heavy duty themes and complex systems, one that fully rewards you for in-depth exploration of its mechanics and world. It also has a lot of dicks in it. Vaginas too.
In short, it’s eating up my time like a ravenous beast.
I have managed to write a few things about it over at Pixels or Death though.
One article is about how it’s better classified as a survival-horror RPG, the other on how the presence of thinly veiled stat boosting DLC makes me wonder how long the handheld market can stay sacred in the face of the massive Japanese mobile gaming market.
Expect more here soon. I’m working on something…big.
