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.

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

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

eight months pass...

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!)

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.

3 is the best ending

rip all my jokes about how atlus's ps4 game will come out in 2025

ciderpress, Monday, 21 February 2022 15:13 (seven months ago) link

if they are willing to make a Soul Hackers 2 this means that Digital Devil Saga 3 can't be far off ... right?

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Monday, 21 February 2022 15:51 (seven months ago) link

define "far"

anyway finally something i might want to buy for PS5

I have a voulez-vous? with death (Noodle Vague), Monday, 21 February 2022 15:54 (seven months ago) link

So I've beaten Persona 4 Golden now... the (true) ending was kinda underwhelming? Like most stories have a trajectory where they build up to a thrilling climax and then there's a denouement and conclusion.. but in P4G it hits a massive climax in december, then there's a period where not much happens, then suddenly there's another big confrontation at the end that happens so suddenly the payoff doesn't feel too large?

Of course it's still an incredible near-perfect game with characters i love to death, but P3 had such a more satisfying ending! and (slight spoiler!) i may have shed a tear when all your maxed-out social links visit you during the last battle

josh az (2011nostalgia), Sunday, 6 March 2022 05:27 (six months ago) link

over time i've come to appreciate the relatively downbeat P4G - there's a lot going on with rurality and mythology and connection to place. 3, 4 and 5 all have very distinct moods

Nordle (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 6 March 2022 09:18 (six months ago) link

xp isnt that because the stuff after december is all after-the-fact additions in Golden?

P3 has always been considered the one with the good story. 4 was a hit due to the cast and setting, 5 due to style

three months pass...

Finally time to play the other ones?

Just noticed that the URL is misleading:

There’s no mention of the Persona games coming to Nintendo Switch

Antifa Lockhart (Leee), Monday, 13 June 2022 17:15 (three months ago) link

oh good i can buy Golden again, probably Portable too but i hope they buff the mechanics

Armenian Idol (Noodle Vague), Monday, 13 June 2022 17:23 (three months ago) link

v disappointed that P3 is a port of the PSP game and not a remaster of FES
learnt the other day that there's a fan hack of FES that lets you control all the characters, but it's very unstable

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Monday, 13 June 2022 23:03 (three months ago) link

two weeks pass...

And 3-5 are coming to Switch now: https://kotaku.com/persona-5-royal-4-golden-3-portable-switch-release-jrpg-1849118719

Antifa Lockhart (Leee), Tuesday, 28 June 2022 20:06 (two months ago) link

aaaaand now i'm making my way through Persona 5 Royal. And it's just as amazing as everyone said it is. the writing, characters, dialogue, combat... it really feels like the peak of entertainment

it's also been super fulfilling playing them in order from 3 to 5 and watching the series grow and get better. 3 blew me away (even without directly controlling party members!), but it feels like an atari game in comparison to 5's maximalism!

josh az (2011nostalgia), Friday, 8 July 2022 12:59 (two months ago) link

5 Royal is the best
