(Lack Of) Progress

Sign in to follow this  


Progress on the net lib has been nonexistent, as I've been pretty busy at work. I don't expect to get much done this weekend either, because I just got my hands on SMT: Persona 3. The game is very interesting, so far (only a few hours in), I really enjoy it. It's kind of half turn-based RPG, half dating sim. It may not sound very fun, but it comes together well. Basically, by day, you are a typical high-school student, and have to answer questions in class, join clubs, make friends, and the like. By night, you fight "shadows" with the aid of a persona, which is similar to an Esper in FFVI (you equip your persona and it grants you abilities and spells to use in combat). The point of the sim part is that you can build up social links. New persona's are made by combining old ones together, and the stronger your social links, the better the resulting presona. It's an interesting system, and I think it comes together very well.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) series, they've been around for a while, and I quite like all the ones I've played (SMT: Nocturn and SMT: Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2). They're incredibly stylish, if a little lacking in originality. What I really like about them is how much they seem to draw from eastern mythology. Player, enemy, and skill design strikes me as being very Hindu, which serves to give the games a unique feel amongst all the typical orcs n' goblins RPGs out there.

So, if you can get your hands on any of the SMT series, check them out, if you've got a couple dozen hours to spare.

Oh, and I'll try to get some networking related work done this weekend, but no promises.
