its just the english localization team changing it as far as i can tell, atlus/hashino still don't care

i like persona 5 now. the black and red plaid punkish aesthetic really turned me off at first, strong early 00s mall punk sum 41 vibes, but i have come to terms w it.
5 makes a lot of the social mechanics more explicit which takes away some of the immersiveness of 3 (the best game of the entire megaten series imo, followed by nocturne) but also makes it less stressful, wondering if i was totally blowing the late game by eating the wrong ramen or whatever. music is also not as good as 3 or 4 but there are def some tunes.

it's a good game, though i did stop.
the dating stuff gave me massive anxiety. what if i gave the wrong gift and didn't get to fuck the one i wanted to fuck????
there was also a serious difficulty spike in mementos which scared me

3, 4 and 5 are all near-perfect no back answers

no i agree - i feel that i failed it, rather than the other way around

hey Persona 4 Golden is out on Steam, only $20/£16 toohope they port P3 next

Here I am, 12 years late to the party, playing P4 for the first time, having never played a Persona before. I like pretty much everything about it except for the bland randomized dungeons. The soundtrack is having a Major Effect on me, let me tell you.

it's a shame it's a straight port otherwise i'd've bought the fucker again
the dungeons are one of the weaker elements until 5 tbf

Ugh I am so tempted to rebuy it and play it again but I have enough to play

i bought a PS TV just so i could play the Golden so i'm not gonna get the PC version

I’ve been thinking of getting P4G because it looks like the kind of game I’d like (turn-based RPG, colourful visuals, weird as hell), but i fear it might be too dense for me since I’m not much of a gamer.. should I just say fuck it and go for it anyways?
― josh az (2011nostalgia), Monday, 22 June 2020 06:24 (one year ago) link
yeah, it's very user friendly and the learning curve is gentle

P5R is on sale and I'm trying to be smart and resist buying it as I played the base game already. Maybe if it ever goes under $20, I'll give it a try.
― Basic Chan Ho Park (Leee), Wednesday, 25 November 2020 17:49 (one year ago) link
Lol that didn't last long! Bought it just now anyway.
― Basic Chan Ho Park (Leee), Wednesday, 25 November 2020 18:04 (one year ago) link
i'm tempted to give it another try, i own the base game but fell off it 25-30 hours in and there being a Better version makes me less inclined to resume

Apparently Royal has quality of life improvements too.
― Basic Chan Ho Park (Leee), Wednesday, 25 November 2020 18:30 (one year ago) link
i've put 400+ hours into P5 and i'm getting Royal as soon as i've got a machine to play it on, worth every penny
― Bandscamp Fryday (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 25 November 2020 18:42 (one year ago) link
i should play TMS first though since i already own that one
― ciderpress, Wednesday, 25 November 2020 18:51 (one year ago) link
actually P5R is half price on the PS Store over here, very tempted to buy it now so it's ready for when PS5's are available next summer

been playing a lot of persona 3 lately. I haven't played any other games in the series yet so I don't know how it stands up against the others, but the world it creates is just so perfect. and the characters! and dialogue! I'm far from even being halfway through the game, but I already feel so attached to the characters and story
the summer vacation beach scene -- where junpei drags akihiko and the protagonist into trying to pick up girls at the beach before they meet aigis -- is such a good portrayal of adolescent male awkwardness and arrogance (except for that one part where it gets weirdly transphobic. that part has not aged well!)
― josh az (2011nostalgia), Monday, 26 July 2021 04:10 (four months ago) link
sadly you get those little moments of stupid unpleasantness in the series but yeah otm, the Persona games have become the most emotionally affecting games I've ever played and I'm fairly obsessed.
(not obsessed enough to take a chance on Strikers yet tho. has anybody played that?)

those atlus writers are really queer-phobic. look up the scenes they added in catherine full body if you want to be disgusted.

Finally finished P3:FES (The Journey) after 4 months and 100 hours of gameplay. Man, what an absolutely incredible — and just downright heartbreaking — ending. I know 4 and 5 get more acclaim (probably because 3 does have some gameplay flaws), but I’ll be amazed if either of them can pull off a better finale than that.
― josh az (2011nostalgia), Monday, 11 October 2021 20:42 (one month ago) link
3 is the best ending
