I only bought the game yesterday on a whim. I've only seen a few gameplay videos and they looked boring but actually playing the game is so addicting, and I'm only like 3 hours in. The music is fantastic also.

Oh, and any tips for talking to demons? Most of the time they end up getting angry with me or leaving the battle, are their replies random?

There are several personality archetypes for demons that take some getting used to (e.g. the old fogey, THE CRAZY BEAST THAT TALKS IN ALL CAPS, the seductress, the haughty noble, etc.). And the preferred responses to each archetype's questions have a chance of backfiring. But for every personality type, there are some responses more likely to please the demon than others. After some trial and error, negotiation gets easier.

A general strategy that seems to work at least 90% of the time is to satisfy 2 or 3 of a demon's requests (e.g. give money, give MP, give an item) and then end negotiations. Most of the time, this will make demons apologize for making unreasonable requests and offer to join.

I'm glad you're enjoying the game, but... did you seriously buy a game you thought was going to be boring?

Yeah pretty much. I heard it was good, and I like rpg games. RPG games are sometimes boring to watch but fun to play, at least in my opinion. Plus I had been wanting to get a new 3DS game and heard it had a dark story which is a plus.

Yes, SMTIV is an amazing game.

I've been playing it for more than a month now, and I still can't put it down. I'm on my sixth playthrough, currently hunting down all the rare Fiend demons.

The story only gets better as you go on. Naraku can be somewhat of a slog, but after that is when the game gets really good. I won't post any spoilers, of course. I feel that this is the kind of game that you just have to play unspoiled, so it's more memorable.

It's quite amazing. Haven't touched any other game while playing this one, 54 hours in.

I'm guessing you bought off of eshop? It's always on sale. I feel dumb for buying retail

Demons cannot equip bullets, but they can use gun skills, Consort their stats though, especially hp/mp as some demons may be better suited as gun specialists than others (as well as other specializations such as hard hitters, magic spammers, buffer/debuffer, and crit machines)
