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

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

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 (five 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

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

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

Just noticed that the URL is misleading:

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

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

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

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

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!

5 Royal is the best
