Scary good deals haunt the October Atlus eShop sale.
So "tons" is seven? Only six of which are RPGs. None of which are "great." Some aren't even good (Conception II).
Six RPGs in a sale featuring seven games is a pretty vast majority. But, you're right, I should have titled it "Six Great RPGs and a beat-'em-up With RPG Elements Get Prices Slashed in Atlus' eShop Sale". Wouldn't want to be misleading, right? As for the quality of the games. I had a ton of fun with both Etrian Odyssey titles listed, and SMT: IV and Soul Hackers are very enjoyable entries in the SMT series. Though your enjoyment of them obviously is going to be impacted by whether or not their your cup o' tea. Conception is a mixed bag, but our reviewer thought it was worthwhile, and at $25 bucks it's hardly breaking the bank.
Gee, I must be doing something terribly wrong because I have fun with good games, above average games, and even mediocre games on occasion.
Ahh,Shin Megami Tensei IV, I am glad it finally got released but I truly wished it got the same treatment as it predecessor in terms of visuals and direction (but then again I am haven't finished the game completely yet so fingers crossed...). I felt they tried to make it similar to Persona by creating a slightly lighter atmosphere with upbeat characters however the battle system and OST are downright perfect.
Yeah, I can see what you're talking about in terms of tone, Nocturne is a hard game to follow up in terms of mood and atmosphere. But I agree, the combat and OST in SMT: IV are excellent.
I have Shin Megami Tensei IV Etrian Odyssey IV Conception II
I already have all of them, except for Conception II, in which I have zero interest.
Its not very good
it seems like there's an atlus sale of the same games every month.
