I HAVE however heard rumors of Demon Vs. Demon PvP.
[...]
Fused demons do inherit said skills, so this means that if one wants a demon that has one skill or another, one will have to raise a demon up somewhere along in the chain for the demon to have said ability, as opposed to the SMT/2 method of static demon levels with their "Get 'em and mix 'em" ability. On the upshot, this does allow for some rather dandy mixin' comboes.

Seems that grinding up demons may prove more important than grinding up your character... which makes me think of Nocturne a little.  A Nocturne MMO with demonic gladiatorial combat against your friends... sounds nice.

Q) IIRC, this one follows the free-to-play, pay-for-stuff approach; how gamebreaking is the stuff you can buy with realcash, or (on the flipside) how hosed wouldja be if you're a cheapskate?

Do note, the rumors of DvD is apparently really old and nothin' has come of it yet.

Anyway, cash shop stuff isn't available for the CB. However, other then some expanded storage and demon storage slots, I haven't seen a whole lot in the "You need this" market.
Hell, there's even hair styles and dyes available without goin' Cash-shop. So unless they start sellin' pieces of gear or over-powered consumables, I don't think it will be too problematic.

Also, the Noctune Demon designs are used.

Fair enough, but I'd think it wouldn't be a stretch; most MMOs have some manner of PvP somewhere down the line.  I can easily see things going full-circle and having a pokemon-style league start up in Imagine :-)

Meaning spare inventory and extra room to store non-active demons? Hm.   How harsh are the base limits on those?

50 slots of free storage, 0 slots of demon storage.  One can hold 6 demons on-hand at once. Each "Rental" slot for both kinds holds 50 and are rentable for 30, 60 and 90 day periods.

Now that I go back and look, I think I was confusing AP, which they points to raise your Stats is called and AP which is the psuedo-realcash currency, Aeria Points.

Yay for potential  demonic chickenfights~

Is Hitler a boss, then? Possibly wielding the holy spear and power of Nyarlathotep?

Only one, the Cerberus Server, for now.

I'm always on Channel 8, so anyone wishin' to run into my magical self had best align themselves accourdin'ly.

Also, Gratz.

And one last play tip for anyone playin'. Don't use the wounded Cerberus, it leaves.

Argh, dude, numbers on the end of the name. Just makes it hard to type.

That said, I've already stated my name there is the same here.
