Introduction



Look at this thing. Look at it. It's really simple but effective. It's almost a movie poster in how its framed. It's almost as if it's trying to go "Doesn't it look really cool? Doesn't it seem like this game is going to be awesome?"

Whoo boy, do I have some bad news for you...



Strange Journey is the fourth game in the mainline Shin Megami Tensei series except when it isn't. Just think of it as 3.5 and move on, because that's what I do. It was released in 2010 for the DS and is not very good. It's not BAD either, mind you. It's just... kind of mediocre overall. It has some things to like, some things to dislike but on the whole it's really nothing to get fired up about one way or the other.

Also it's really, really easy which is like the biggest sin it could commit.

EX Missions!

Like, all of them. Whether they are completed or not. In order of acceptance, rather than the in-game order (which puts them in a weird order that makes no sense anyway).

There's a lot of these things, so I'll keep them on the test poster for convenience. If you really care enough to check 'em out, you can find them here:

Note that these only apply to what occurred in the first cycle so keep that in mind before you feel like complaining about something.

Records

Better known as "achievements." There's zero point to caring about these, but they're a fun way to track progress... even though some of them are not remotely doable during a normal playthrough. These'll be in the same order as in-game rather than order done, because keeping track of that is kind of ridiculously hard. And pointless.
