The year may be fresh, but the hell never ended. It's been a ride, and the ride finally caught up to us here at DDP and has slowed our ongoing series detailing the "first" game in the Megaten franchise, Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei. Justin pops by to give you an update and assure you that the show will go on, all to the blissful music stylings of Brent and Chat Pile. Take care!

Surprise, it's the book episode!  The back half of Kyuuyaku really suffers from the lack (see: a supermassive black hole) of narrative so we dive head-first into the kiddie pool that is the Digital Devil Story light novels to try to make sense of all of it, from ritual magick and Whitesnake, to cybernetic astral tentacle attacks, and god-fights in stinky tombs.  Brent will also do their best to put forth a working theory as to why this game is so gosh darned mean to us, providing they can piece their brain back together after going down the rabbit hole of decades of worth of translated Famitsu articles and interviews with early Atlus staff.

The dungeon of Mazurka is huge, and it's brutal, and it's empty.  This week, instead of dwelling on the most frustrating aspects of an incredibly frustrating (and old) game, we're cutting all that out and leaving you with a lot of horsehockey about facebook marketplace lewd drawings, space fortresses in the Gundam universe, daytime Overwatch ranked matches, and being accused of "colorbusting" as a child in the Mississippi public school system.  We convince a Basilisk to join us also.

We chatter about P4/P5 too.

We finally unlock the recreation area in the sky city via wining the battle of attrition against Medusa, and we try to soak up every last bit of the ol' razzle dazzle the game hits us with in the big mid-game info dump!  After another gear up, we head out to find Rag, the last friendly face we'll meet before the long, cold, dark back half of Kyuuyaku Megami Tensei.
