So Persona 5 is delayed to April 5th, which is annoying for many. I hope as the game gets played by as many people as possible and have their minds at ease without fear. Here's some other trailers just in case.













Makoto Niijima's my favourite.

Apparently Persona 5 is gonna have 50% more voiced dialogue than Persona 4 Golden, also here's how everyone favourite waifu Futaba sounds in the english dub.

Less than a week before Persona 5 comes out! April 4th to be exact. I do hope they have a guidebook available because it would be much convenient to check what Personas I need to get into order to fuse them to become whatever Persona tickles my fancy.

IGN's given it a 9.7 but that's no surprise, Metro-GameCentral gave it a 9/10 (despite their routine disdain for other JRPGs), lots of 9s, lots of 10, blah blah blah. Sadly, people are once again attacking The Jimquistion website for Laura K. Buzz's review which gave Persona 5 an 8.5/10, which is still a pretty damn good score. It's been over 10 years since Gamespot gave Twilight Princess an 8.8 and nobody has learned that whining over scores makes you a big baby and being shamed as a collective.

Apparently you're the worst person never if you don't parrot other reviews regardless of one's own preferences or faults of the game itself that others ignore because of the name brand. Persona is always slow at the start and that's not for everyone.

These so-called true hardcore gamers say 'We want ethics in journalism!' What they really mean is 'We want everyone to give this game a 10/10 regardless of how they feel and a 0/10 for a game we decided to rage about!'.

I won't be able to play Persona 5 'til the summer but I might beat it before these people as they'll whine about the score forever.

I mean, there are objectively negative reviews made badly. You can't tell me IGN's reviews of recent Sonic stuff are in any way fair, and the fans don't even want 10s anymore, they just want negatives that aren't made up.

But back to purse owner. Doubt they changed much from SMTIVFinal and P4G, Steve, except for the new additions and elements. You should be good getting the guys that were reliable in the last few games if they still look that way.

God ****ing dammit Atlus shut down any LPs of the game past **** hits the fan month. I was so looking foward for Zaibatsu to play it since this would be the first time Pat would play an SMT game blind.

edit: Most people here have a PS3/4 and probably play the game, but since I'm poor and go wherever Bayonetta goes, I managed to scrape a good stream of the first 3 hours.

God damn. Forbidden fruit is the most tempting, but even without that, this game looks and feels so good.

Still a nice pace watching the game, and really enjoying it regardless. Wish I had a PS4 so I could make the guy stop ignoring Mementos and the plant but I'll survive.

Also, a friend told me about the mission failures since I can't go searching for that without running into spoilers. Needless to say...



Upping the rating because of japan getting stricter laws? Oh, they played the fans like a damn fiddle.
More because they added rape, suicide, and someone pulling a bullet through the protagonist's head.

The game is literally about rebelling and they didn't expect people to do that just to know
Nothing even happens in that day it's just 2-3 days from one of the important confession sequences.


The day itself is just supposed to scare people into not streaming. Only the big people, mind you, I don't think they removed a single non-soundtrack video ever since because the only ones with nothing to lose have small channels anyway.

He can't make up his mind if he'll skip the night entirely,prompt you to sleep at the first floor, or just let you think you have a free night only to turn down anything you look at. Sure, it's so you can take care of the plant and see if Sakura has new dialogue, but it's not that worth it if you'll block everything else.

Also oh man I thought the jojokes about Yusuke on twitter were just fooling around on launch
he poses in every animation

The dub is great, and they really chose the actors well since most of them aren't going for an existing character(except the reporter and Sojiro, but his VA really only has one voice as Nier-Gestalt or Cartherine's narrator). Only weak one I feel is Joker/Akira/MC, because as much of a cool guy Xander Mobus is, he really can't keep a young tone and some lines randomly sound super deep.

This being the first time an MC has to actively talk and have a character is one thing, but some of the game save and battle lines barely sound like the same person.

P3D (Persona 3: Dancing All Night? Persona 3 for 3DS?)
P5AG
P5D (Persona 5: Dancing All Night?)
P5R (Persona 5: Racing?)
P5U (Persona 5: Arena Ultimax?)
Persona Dance
PQ2 (This one's obvious)

Idk, she's kind of in the not-waifu territory for me like Futaba. She was best girl for me before the game came out, but uh with the story circumstances it just feels wrong to think about that. Milady is still my favorite persona tho.

Gah I can't wait until it's actually revealed in the walkthrough I have to talk about this

Traitor spoilers
it's amazing how Akechi blows his cover literally when they meet, but you only notice in replays or if you're paying plenty of attention

In the TV Station, he ends up overhearing Morgana and responds to him, since he was in the corridor and couldn't see who was talking
(Either that or I remember the dialogue wrong)
If the trio actually noticed none of them mentioned pancakes the plot wouldn't have ever escalated like this -
sure, both gameplay and story give you hints later, but this one moment changes everything and already tells you he's going to make up the Space Station encounter


I'm actually almost at this reveal but I've glued my eyes to the dialogue and I could see it coming from a mile with the help of a friend

Edit: also Atlus now is acting on the defensive on their literal threats to the LPing community but didn't adress the problem, only pushed the restrictions to the
Good Ending
threshold.

I don't give P Studio enough credit for their writing, that was amazing. Oh yeah, and everything else that happens in Nov 19-22nd, holy ****, I thought the P3 movies got dark and intense but this is another level - and it's just the start of engame. Hype.

replaying 3 right now and its really frustrating on how heavy the game punishes you for doing nothing wrong. like "opps i missed a move with a 3 percent chance of missing" and then you die because the enemies just so happen to have a move that you're weak to so have fun restarting up to 10 floors of the same copy and paste dungeon. then there's the ai which is just plain awful because they really can screw you over just to the point where they will waste turns by attacking an enemy that don't get affected by that type of move. then theres the endless amounts of rng that will ****ing kill you because **** you thats why.

#78 Posted: 01:49:41 06/05/2017
I finally finished watching P5 AND I CAN POP OPEN THIS CHAMPAGNE OF SPOILER LINKS I'VE SAVED

I'll probably post thoughts tomorrow I'm way too hyped to be reasonable

edit: tl;dr game is great, plot is amazing, a few downfalls and the sound design bothered me but otherwise fun from beginning to end


big positives:
-oh my god the writing. Everything in this game is relevant, not one important-sounding thing goes unnoticed, and very few parts feel hamfisted or go nowhere
-the character interaction is so much better than in P4. Maybe they don't stand out as much and are "normal" compared to the other teams, they don't overuse quirks or have characters overstay their welcome(yes, even Ryuji, as plot endangering as he was it was pretty funny to see him be smart in all the situations the team expected disappointment) and their events feel like friendship rather than 'oh man I'm glad the MC put us in this situation'
--And everyone matters! I barely remember non-major social links from the other games(except one or other with REALLY good stories) because they don't matter when they arrive or when they leave except for fusion bonus. More than the bonuses from every Confidant, anyone you encounter/max out eventually appears in the story or sends you messages and makes an impact.
-The gameplay changes everyone loved, no different here. From making everything faster without removing the catharsis factor, to little improvements that remove a lot of frustration(boss retries are a godsend). The introduction of Psi and Frei is also pretty nifty since before you had little to no reason to invest in statuses.
-Dungeon design is great, but coming from copy pasted RNG areas it's not thaaat much of an improvement; even Mementos has more than two color schemes and changes assets around.
-Story is a+++. It was a ruse cruise but what a ride; so much good stuff like when you notice Goro was never meant to be the twist, but that your party holds nothing back as soon as they suspect something. The moral is also really good and more realistic in application, since in the end they don't magically get Personas back to solve all their problems and have to rely on their newfound smarts; looking at you P4 spinoffs.

cons:
-Everything to do with Goro after the ending choice threshold. It's SO obvious that they cut content from him for the updated release and the result is that his next few twists go by way too fast and he dies/escapes with no one caring any further. It's worse than Adachi since you already get a good glimpse at how screwed up the kid is, but you're never allowed to do anything about it or dig a bit deeper; not to mention everything to do with the failed Wildcard and his ability to permanently Rage things. You bet he's going to get a January dungeon in a few years or be the central plot for Persona 5 Arena but I don't want to waaaait
-by extension, the gap between Shido's Palace and Qlipoth. The previous games treated this buildup to the climax SO well, but probably for the Christmas deadline the game just throws all this plot in your face at high speeds and you're given no time to absorb it, the worst offender being the conspiracy from the politicians getting two cutscenes and then shoved out for the outer scope plot. Easily a point that P3 and P4 unfortunately still do better.
-Sound design. The music is GREAT, maybe too few tracks, but the SFX and the actual placement of the songs is just ugh. Lots of loud noises that get repeated over and over, music changing to another far too quick, LOOKING COOL JOKER all the goddamn time when this is obviously a script that'll repeat in the entire game. Some soundbites make no sense in the non-voiced sentence and feel misplaced.
-no gay option more than ever. Even Akira's dialogue choices for Yusuke(also one of the possible classroom dreams) clearly show he'd be into it and you're not allowed
-Ruse Cruise is fun and all but the Rat puzzle. Why. It was actually entertaining until it became shortcut hell, not even Akira desperately trying to climb doors with the status could save it.

mixed:
-Joker/Akira/MC is both a blessing and a curse. I love that the games ditched the 'player as character' facade and just put you in the shoes of this showoff snarky kid, but you have to dig in and observe his reactions to really know what he's like and what he'll mostly likely show in the adaptations. But god damn this guy is thirsty except for Futaba he wastes no time and it's pretty awkward
-All cameos except for Tanaka being mentions. It's less dev time, sure, but it's freaking Tokyo. Wouldn't the team bump into SOMEONE from the previous games,especially the Shadow Operatives as they'd be the first to suspect what the Metaverse truly is? There's even a DLC costume themed after them, I don't get it.
-Robin Hood is a trash tier Persona. I was expecting him to be a purposefully butchered and badly inspired design, but no, he's on the artbook alongside Loki. Except for the tunic and the bow(which he doesn't even use) he really missed the mark. Considering Adachi's Joker social link it's odd that they didn't give Goro a straight up fake Persona to go along with his Featherman outfit.

Small bump but the Goropocalypse was the best missed meme holy ****
The hype on 4chan was so out of control even the game couldn't predit enough how people would react to him("akechi is bae" barely describes that mess)


Best part about the out of context spoilers is that by digging around you find out there are three Goros, but the one in Sae's palace is never seen since the team beats him up offscreen despite her cognition of a nice harmless kid
Darn missing secret dialogue is always painful in date-relevant games like this


Either way looking up stuff the LPer missed is an adventure in itself here, not to mention the memes

WEAK
-0 HP noise-



Also, someone got the audio files for the characters, Joker has a TON of unused files that are either alternate readings of existing lines or voice clips for activities.



While Xander straight up screws up in some and sounds like Sonic, kinda wish that most of these stayed in. It's not like it's one line for everything like Morgana, he has at least two variations for most situations.

The game also crashes a bunch or spawns a blank enemy group so expect to be skipping ahead a lot.

2:26:40 for Joker and Goro versus the Goro Gangbang
After that it's just the second Goropocalypse the game doesn't want any other enemy spawn

Atlus' form of milking is always a fascinating one. Haven't played Dancing All Night since I don't have a Vita, and I haven't really played that many rhythm games, but these do look interesting.
It's also nice to hear that Q is getting a sequel, and the Persona 5 anime is something to look forward to as well.

That all said, I need to get back into SMT/Persona and RPGs in general first. smilie
