postgame bonus dungeon seems obnoxious but i guess i'll do it since i've come this far

finished the game w/ the true ending. enjoyed it overall but its exhaustingly long and kinda drags in bits especially the summer months. i could imagine this being my favorite rpg if i had played it 10 years ago but today it just lands at pretty good. will def play 3 and 5 at some point but not right away

four months pass...

yeah it's a similar upgrade to p4 golden as expected. the additions in golden other than quality of life tweaks mostly kinda sucked though

Knew i'd have to get a PS4 eventually

Mildly annoyed that this looks like it's a separate purchase.

yeah it's a new version of the game, not an expansion. the original was a ps3 game that was released on ps4 out of necessity because it was so late, this is the ps4 "remaster"

ciderpress, Wednesday, 24 April 2019 19:15 (four months ago) link

they did a same gen update of p3 too though that was the pre-DLC era

persona 5 S turned out to be persona 5 scramble, a musou game. ps4/switch, no release date.

three weeks pass...

So i had a little disposable income for the first time in a while and i'm now the excitable owner of a Playstation TV which is downloading P4 Golden as i type. FASTER YOU FUCKER, FASTER

i finally got persona 5! about 10 hours in, about to take care of the gym coach, who will hopefully be fired and go to jail, or just die.

i have never played a persona game, and i am really loving it so far - more enthusiastic about it than any rpg i've played in years!

it's completely insane in the best way. i love the absurd leaps of dream-logic the characters make, all of which turn out to be absolutely accurate.

5 so far has managed to sidestep the thing from 4 where they ran not very funny by-the-book versions of every standard high school comedy bit

three weeks pass...

just got P5 on sale. my gosh this game is great so far.

did spend the entire evening just clicking x though.

thomasintrouble, Monday, 24 June 2019 12:51 (two months ago) link

There are sections of that in all of them but it's usually fun/bearable/worth it

Finished P4 Golden at the weekend. Feels the weakest of the last 3 to me, the balance is off and some of the just clicking x sections felt ridiculously long. Still amazing, obv. Started straight back into NG+. Think the balance issues are probly mostly to do with the added missions, haven't played the PS2 version tho.

beyond QoL improvements the added stuff is mostly just marie and her social link and postgame dungeon. plus some of the shitty 'comedy' scenes with the fat girl

ciderpress, Monday, 24 June 2019 14:54 (two months ago) link

i think there might be some changes to persona fusion that make the game easier too actually yeah

ciderpress, Monday, 24 June 2019 15:08 (two months ago) link

The fusion in 4 is great tbh, the comedy is bad, the game hangs around way too long between the original bad guy and Marie and her dungeons' SP mechanic is a pain.

Rory end to the lowenbrow (Noodle Vague), Monday, 24 June 2019 15:18 (two months ago) link

Idk i feel like without Marie the game is a lot shorter and easier than 3 and 4 but maybe i missed a boss first time round or more likely i just know how to smash the dungeons now.

Rory end to the lowenbrow (Noodle Vague), Monday, 24 June 2019 15:20 (two months ago) link

3 and 5 i mean

Rory end to the lowenbrow (Noodle Vague), Monday, 24 June 2019 15:21 (two months ago) link

it's definitely the shortest of the three, golden or original

ciderpress, Monday, 24 June 2019 20:31 (two months ago) link

I'm unhealthily obsessed with the series at this point tbh :D so there is never enough of it to spend time in

Rory end to the lowenbrow (Noodle Vague), Monday, 24 June 2019 20:39 (two months ago) link

yeah there's really only the 3 games with that formula, i'm sure we'll get a p6 in another 4 years or something though

ciderpress, Monday, 24 June 2019 21:21 (two months ago) link

The redux of P5 is gonna be the thing that makes me finally get a PS4 next year i'm sure. The thought of how far off P6 is is just depressing.

Rory end to the lowenbrow (Noodle Vague), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:24 (two months ago) link

Didn't they just do a P5 redux?

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:40 (two months ago) link

they announced it, it's not out in english until next year
