Dark Souls

General Overview

Touted as one of the toughest RPGs of all time, Dark Souls offers an engaging experience and a grand adventure…for all who dare to go through its endless amount of buttfuckery. However, is it too much or just enough? Is there enough to keep you going to put up with the rabid difficulty or is it a carrot that’s constantly just out of reach? Well, I hate carrots, but you know what I mean.

Megami Tensei

Before I get started, this is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but I have to warn you of two things. One, I am NOT the most widely versed individual in SMT. I’m a huge fan and have been for over a decade, but that’s not saying much considering how long the series has been running. And two, while I will be providing as much information as possible, it’s possible I may miss a few titles here and there or otherwise get stuff wrong as I’m mostly going to be referencing Wikipedia.

That said, again, I am a huge fan of SMT, MegaTen, Persona, and whatever. SMT is ever-changing, but one concept that usually remains the same is that of the occult. In many games you may communicate with demons, form demon contracts, recruit demons, fuse demons together, and all kinds of crazy stuff. At times it feels like Pokemon, but with demons, and other times it can operate more like Eye of the Beholder, but with demons.

Naturally, the key word is demons, but sometimes they’re referred to as persona, shadows, monsters, and whatever else, sometimes to get around the censors and other times because they’re not really demons within the SMT universe. Again, this will ATTEMPT to be a giant, canonical listing of all SMT titles, but it’s possible I may skip a few, so I implore you to investigate on your own time as well.

Before we get started, I will try to be as chronologically correct as possible. However, I will also try to present the original North American release date when possible as well. This may get confusing as games like Innocent Sin, originally released in 1999 on the PS1, but never released until the remake on the PSP far later in North America are always a possibility.

According to Wikipedia, the MegaTen series is the third most popular RPG series in Japan, just barely being inched out by Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy. Read on to find out why.

Disgaea 2 – Cursed Memories

General Overview

Better in many ways and worse in a few others, Disgaea 2 is a great sequel that will remind you why you liked the original and keep you just as addicted. However, are those few niggling flaws enough to keep you from enjoying this one as much as the original?

The Fantastic World of Japanese Games – Episode 1

People who understand emulation, even to a small degree, know all about the fantastic world of translated games that never left Japan. Most of the time it was for reasons like RPGs not selling well in America at the time, more mature content than they felt an American audience was ready for, or simply having un-American themes in place during an era where a lot of people really fucking loved America.

So as a result, to help kick this new series (hopefully a series anyway) off, I will give an example for all three of those reasons. Don’t forget that I always attempt to embed the pics with movies for your viewing pleasure! With that, let’s get started.
