Default Day One Club #6: Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

It's out today! The magical robot voice on the phone told me so!

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
Atlus/Lancarse | DS | First Person RPG | 2010

It's Etrian Tensei! What's not to like about that?

You got a call? I just got a text page.

I'm naming my protagonist Nich because why wouldn't you?

I also just got a text message. Hopefully I can actually get down there and pick this up today.

I am now seriously considering stealing your idea and naming the protagonist Nich as well.

Yay, my Amazon order shipped! They often ship things out of California, so it should be here soon!

I really, really want this game.

Because after reading the newsletters and the sci-fi references, I was planning on naming him David Lidenbrock... but I suppose Nich Land could work too

Looks like I'm getting my copy tomorrow :\

I guess this gives me another day to try and beat Final Fantasy XIII. I'm probably going to end up playing Cave Story though.

Nothing against my friend Nich, but c'mon guys, be a little creative. Nich's already on his own journey, so make this one yours as well.

I also think I screwed up a little when I inputted my 4-letter first name, as I hit spaces to proceed to the last name and they show up in the formatting. "Levispace!" But if you insist on going with Nich or another fewer-than-8-character name, don't do that.

Yeah, that's exactly what happened with me too. It pisses me off because the game page says it ships withing 24 hours and I preordered it back in the second week of February.

I just got this and Final Fantasy 13 today. I think I already know which one I'll like more.

I got it and have started playing. I like the introduction so far.

I don't really understand the soundtrack CD, however. When I put it on my computer iTunes doesn't see it, and it looks like a regular data CD with a folder of music files in it. Will this even work in a CD player?

Apparently Canada (or at least my part of Canada) has to wait for the end of the week to get it.

And you know what? FINE! I wanted to play Cave Story anyway.

I'm loving the music in this game. So far it feels like this has the best soundtrack in the series.

I have it. It's sitting right here, next to me. But this is my first time dipping into SMT waters... I've seen the other threads though, the persona ones... This whole thing is kinda intimidating and terrifying at the same time.

I almost don't want to put it into my DS...

C'mon, don't be like that... just stick it in. Everybody's doing it. Except for me, because mine has arrived yet and probably won't be here until tomorrow or Thursday.

I'm loving this too. Haven't made too much progress yet due to a certain real-life issue involving a bird and noise complaints, but I'm loving what I've seen and heard so far. I've already recruited my first (non-mandatory) summon in the form of a Knocker, and I'm loving the style this game has.

I'm about an hour or so in, and looking forward to putting more time into this.

My soundtrack doesn't work. I don't think the CD got stamped or burned or whatever they do for real CDs.

Anyone can burn a proper music CD. This one just wasn't in the right file format. You can still get the .wav files with a computer, but I guess we'll have to wait on Atlus about a replacement CD.

Amazon Prime got me this today! Sadly, the adventures of Abraham Lincoln, Science Hero will have to wait since I'm letting the wife play it first. I got through the intro and the first outside mission and the music and mood of the game are great.

Now back to Spirit Tracks/FF13/ME2 for me...

Seems to work on my Lappy, but it had a Disc Read Error on my DVD Player, and it's a player that usually plays anything CD or DVD related without problems. Wonder what kinda file format it uses? o_o?

EDIT: And I missed that earlier talk about it in the thread. ^^;

Can anyone who has played this game in Japanese confirm or deny whether or not I'm going to have to check the walls for secrets a la Etrian Odyssey? It feels weird to since in EO I only draw in walls after checking them and in this one they're auto-made.
