>just beat Persona 3 today
>mfw that fucking ending with MC with his head on Aigis's lap softly passing away
>mfw that entire fucking game
>mfw i dont have a face sad enough
i can add persona 3 to the list of games that made me cry along with MGS4
but thats the thing: its a good story. and since i was playing FES, i can start The Answer anytime
but do i really want to know what happened?
Does the Answer really improve on the Journey in any way or should i not play it, and leave a nice story being a nice story?
>but do i really want to know what happened?
I had the EXACT same feelings and reaction to that ending as you, and I can with absolute certainly tell you do NOT want to know "the answer".
It's the stupidest, most juvenile fucking asspull imaginable and severely cheapens what was otherwise an amazing ending. Also it cheapens the characters themselves.
So yeah, stay the fuck away from the Answer and don't make the same mistake I did.
The answer was pretty tedious. I have to suggest watching the story of it on youtube. It really isn't worth playing through that tedium. Maybe if it had social links and a compendium I wouldn't complain, but it's pretty damn barebones.
am i the only one that never used the compendium
if i had a persona i didnt want in combat i just fused them until i had something mildly interesting and if what i end up with is still useless it frees up some slots at the least
I think you should be a
pretty big girl, Aigis.
I liked P2's combat system better than P3's.
Full party control is where it's at.
And it was a hell of a lot better than P1's combat.
its kind of funny to think of the tortured sould that was the p3 protag living a truly happy life for 8 months and then lying that life down for his freinds
and then thinking of this guy blowing into town, fucking a few bitches over the course of a few months, solving a murder because he was bored, and then just going home again
The combat is tolerable, it's the random encounters every 5 steps that gets really annoying.
You'll get to one of the later dungeons with n increased encounter rate and want to kill yourself it's so bad. But it's worth at least one playthrough.
I'm playing P3 again, undubbed this time.
Having trouble with the Tartarus bosses again is a kind of Hell, but beating them again feels so good.
>tfw the revelation that the first episode of the animu is a restart from this ending.
They shouldn't be a problem if you're on NG+
Are you on New game plus?
good for you
>you sign a contract, promising to respect your decisions throughout the game
>one measly fuckup and it just cuts you off and sends you a week back so you can make the right choice, stupid
I fucking love robot girls. Kills me that I can't seem to get into this game.
>Little to no porn of robots category 5, 6, 7
>Nearly all porn/stories are robots that LOOK AND ACT EXACTLY LIKE HUMANS
Fucking why? What the fuck is the point of a robot girl then?
The tards man, they even infected this place.
>benched Yukari after I got Mitsuru
>get to Heirophant boss
>"Im coming no matter what!"
>she's like 5 levels lower than everyone else
>boss uses lightning
>she's weak to lightning
>playing through non NG+ P4 on expert
>tfw beating Shadow Yukiko and the Contrarian King
Damn there's not much combat, but it feels good actually having to use guard and shit.
When is there a dungeon that's not The Castle? I just got Dojima's S-Link.
P4 (classic only, P4G was nerfed as fuck) was hard-ish at a few points. The true boss heavily hinged on you having at least one of a small list of personas, several other bosses were reasonably hard. Anyone good at games went through them fine, but anyone who isn't experienced would get wrecked.
The "dating sim" stuff sucks assholes anyway. you actively have to pursue grills so you could just ignore it if you want and if you do end up going out with one it just changes how they act in that scene, nowhere else
you will have a better time
becoming frieindswith Kenjithan listening to a girl tell you she loves you because you went out with her for lunch 10 times
The only Tartarus boss (& major boss) was the one right after you pick up Mitsuru, the final boss looked challenging, but I was disappointed in seeing it was just a walk in the park.
no, P3P is the portable one, it's easy, VN like and you can play as a girl and /ss/ a dog and elementary school student
Nah its the updated version of the PS2 game with an optional ending segment at the end that explains things better (though it's very grindy).
The PSP version has positives like actually being able to control your party and the option of playing as a girl. But all the walking around the school/town is replaced by menus and it's ridiculously easy.
Junpei, Akinigo and Aigis
All phys and proud
Anyone else love the Tartarus music?
too bad it devolves into waifu wars, play a real smt game or muh P1/P2
I fucking loved the slight change in music as you went up, I just wish tartarus itself was interesting to explore

P3P Menu theme. The Beginning.
The answer is really long and tedious but it was worth it for the
boss fight with the MC clone near the end and the rest of SEESIf you just want to know the story you're better off watching a playthrough on youtube or something.
Also it has some of the best boss fight music for those battles.

What is the best pairing and why is it FeMC and Shinji?
well that failed.
non retarded link hopefully.
That looks like someone familiar...
Fire - Surt
Ice - Gabriel
Electricity - Dionysus
Wind - Some Sun arcana persona that starts with an S. Over level 70.
Healing - Cybelle
Light and Dark - Thanatos
And a bunch of other high level stuff for physical attacks and assorted buffs. The only things I'm lacking are status ailment lifting spells (I use items) and sukukaja and tarunda spells.
We all would anon.
>I will never leave you
>Literally quote from Aigis' final social link
>Bad ending ends with MC hanging with Yukari
>mfw Yukarifags still think the song is about Yukari in any way
>not getting multiple magics on the same persona
What are you, incapable of basic Human thought?
Switch Dionysus for Thor if you get the chance. His elec amp, strike null(lifesaver) and weapons master make anything struck by his zio dead.
If you can get magic charge on him you win the game.
I wish I had an Aigus figurine.
Well, it certainly seems to be a risque technique.
the charm symbol is a heart, it works
Thor is the ultimate strength arcana, right? I never maxed that one. Dionysus is pretty crappy but he gets the job done. I've been unable to find anything better at electricity through fusion.
I have all three variations of her figma. They're pretty good
>scroll down to see comments
>'First time I heard this song it started off good then....my stomach bled, then my ears, then my horse burnt down from lasagna. XO the hell did this make it out the studio lmfao!'
I deserved that for even bothering to look
Summoning your Persona in 5 is gonna involve blood isn't it? I bet you anything that the characters have to at the very least prick their fingers to summon them.
Someone will chop off a limb to beat a seemingly unbeatable boss. MC will bleed out fighting the final boss.
I doubt it'll be any more edgy than 3. It probably just won't be as sunshiny as 4. Besides the reason they had to shoot themselves in the head in P3 was to invoke fear or something.
Is having a better electricity persona absolutely essential for Nyx? Because I don't have time to get Thor and I doubt I'll find a better one than Dionysus through fusion.
I only whip out Dionysus when I need to apply masukunda or use an electricity attack.
I wish I had a labrys figure
I'm ready for some kind of digital thing where maybe they summon using mobile devices or something similar to the ones in devil survivor.
I can't think of anything else a high schooler would be into unless they involve a cult this time around.
remember the good old days when we used to fight demons
>You'll never be a teenage girl with Mara as your persona
>You'll never initially refuse to join the persona group out of embarrassment
>You'll never be constantly teased about your penisona
I wish. The normal figure is either impossible to find or expesive as fuck now.
>yfw P5 finally lets you date a hot teacher on the sly
You can start it in late November, but you get hit with the career experience shit, then everyone gets depressed for 2/3 of December and isn't available for social linking, and then you get winter break which steals the last bit of December and a third of January.
So you can start it all the way back in November, but can only get it to around rank 5 or 6 and then you're stuck until January.
In one of the interviews Katsura Hashino the director said something along the lines of :
> “To answer your question more directly, I feel that in today’s world, there’s no shortage of people that are bored and discontent with their lives. They’re at a dead end, chained down to a world of which they resent being a part. Persona 5, in that sense, is a game about freedom, the kind that those sorts of people haven’t had living in the real world.”
so its highly likely it has something to do with that message. My guess is maybe a corporation
loosely based off comcastwill be tied to causing deaths through social media or some form of online contact and you have to shut the whole thing down.
I see your Power of Friendship, I raise you betrayal and murdering your comrades
>Tfw instead its an online game and you play with the teacher from P3 on the sly.
A game within a game. Maybe like dragon warrior monster online where persona are your creatures. In game events could be the boss fights causing some kind of .hack online syndrome. There are a lot of possibilities.
Best song coming though.
You don't just get to be executed by Mitsuru anon.
You have to beg for it first.
Us true SMT-fans have our sworn duty to protect and uphold the quality of the SMT fanbase.
As such, we must expatriate all waifufags the fuck out of /v/, or cleanse them with better games to enjoy.
she has multiple D-arts, one with a christmas garb and one with her usual and a velvet room chair. They are okay I suppose
this one is from alter but she has plenty.
A character you thought was decent is actually an insane villain.
An ancient evil was behind it all and shows up at the end.
The ending is bittersweet.
There I spoiled it for you.
>Not letting people enjoy different things.
No Anon, YOU are the faggot.
Preach it, brother.
Ignore demi fiend, he's just mad that there are no good waifus in his game
Good to know they're still patricians on /v/
C'mon anon. There could be content like
facing off against hitoshura or the DDS teamfor recruitment or facing raidou kuzunoha in an online tournamentnot to mention DLC since this is a ps3 game now.
The only true SMT fans on this waifushit infested thread
You mean another thread cleansed?
Sorry to break this to you, but SMT fans are also weeb losers
Both of these series suck ass
Well anon, the problem with margaret is...
she's not elizabeth
No, dude. Stop.
A true Master Baiter stops at one, because one is all you need. More just gives away your game.
>having a nice Persona thread
>MUH SMT comes in and attempts to ruin everything
the cycle continues
It's just not a persona thread without the fun police showing up
>Not realizing that you can't force it, and you need to let people experience SMT at their own pace.
It's how I did it anyway, started with the P3+4 and continued onto Nocturne and Strange Journey.
R.I.P. in pieces Arthur.
I just enjoy video games, and how they're all different, good and bad.
>Having a nice shit-eating buffet
>Your fellow brothers come and try and intervene you trying to save you from Moe/waifu/datingsim-shit
It's okay anon you will slowly realize the error of your ways. The most important part is admitting your mistakes first, then its safe sailing from there.
BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY
>fun games are fun!
not this buzzword again.
You could be eating SHIT, just because you think its fun doesn't mean its good for you.
Sorry but your preaching skills suck reverend, hang yourself in a bowflex.
>Makoto riding in on the bike to save the day with this playing
Why John Cena? seriously that always bothered me about this picture? Cena himself is a fucking weeboo.
Junpei is better.
B-But that's like eating shit! Can't you see my anime reaction image?
>not liking a contemporary classic that is Code GEASS
no anon you're the faggot.
>play persona 3
>never finish it
>know what happens
>want to replay game but do everything in one playthrough
should i just use a guide? I dont think ill be playing it again after beating it
Because that will kill him which is why comparing video games to eating shit is dumb because liking 'bad' video games doesn't kill you.
I'll never understand the popularity of shit eating analogies here
>Persona 5 takes place in the WWE as you must play as the MC returning CM Punk, the story is CM Punk faced his shadow a few weeks back and realized that he needed to come back to the business, after his return a strange case of suicides have been happening backstage with some wrestlers, stage crew, and even fans that go to the show, now punk must team up with Cena and 3 other Superstars and 4 Divas as they uncover the mystery of all these suicides.
>Personas that have the forms of WWE Legends
>Since you are punk every girls wants to fuck you so better dating sim.... but if you pick AJ you have shit taste
>Not only will hanging out with friends raise your personas powers but how you act with the fans will give your personas different powers depending on whether you are heel or face
>Fantasy wrestling match booking
>Triple H with a Chris Benoit persona is the final boss
>tfw I'm as tall as Door-kun
>tfw I'm as charming as him
>triple h with chris benoit persona as final boss
>not the undertaker with chris benoit persona, vince mcmahon with abusive stepfather persona, and kevin dunn with bucktoothed beaver faggot persona
>tfw same height as Door-kun
Also, is his canon name Makoto now or is it still Minato?
You had to remind me of that goddamn table, didn't you?
It's worse now because I remember it and know it's coming.
Next to Aigis.
Height-wise, next to the two 165 girls, but I don't even know who they are.
>tfw like girls who are taller than me
I just finished P3P. Going into P4 now to fill the void left by P3. It'll be hard to top it...
The music is worse, the characters are more unique but not as interesting as P3s, the combat is better, the story is complete shit except for the twist with adachi being the killer.
Sorry anon, Persona 3 is the superior game. I played Persona 4 first, and went in with a shitload of bias, but once I beat it and cried like a little girl, I knew there was no way in hell Persona 4 was the better game.
Emulate FES and play The Answer if you're a bad enough dude
I'm really open to anything at this point, I haven't played another SMT game so I'm looking for more.
goddamn, all the non-schoolmate Social Links were sad as hell
Don't forget to bring some Almighty resistance
I really loved the symbolism in P3. The whole deal about a false savior and you being the real one...while tying into solving the paradox of life and death...
Plus that final boss fight. I think I spent like
90 minuteslast night fighting it.
Finished the rest this morning and I got teary eyed.
>Shinji fucking Akihiko in the ass
Way to ruin the moment.
I actually found those lines very poignant. Like the accumulation of everything I've done in the game thus far. I loved it.
Also I scrounged around and some people didn't understand the ending and thought it was too ambiguous.
WHERE THERE'S NO RULES TAKE OFF THE GLOVES REF PLEASE STEP DOWN
>tfw you'll never see Maiko already grown up >tfw you'll never go on vacations only with Yukari >tfw you'll never play Innocent Sin Online with Maya again
MY LYRICAL DEMPSEY ROLL ABOUT TO SMACK DOWN NOW
Should I grind the hell out of Tartarus in January every other day, or just speed straight to the 31st? I cleared the sixth block before school is supposed to resume. I had no trouble with any of the bosses in the final block.
Mutatsu means "No achievement" in Japanese.
Your guess is as good as mine, buddy.
Meh. I see the mainline games as their own self-contained stories anyways. The spin offs are canon but it doesn't really affect my enjoyment of the main series. Besides, the spin offs exist purely for fanservice anyways, might as well go all the way with it.
DON'T YOU BE AFRAID MAN GOTTA DO HOW IT FEELS
I thought the goal was to reach lvl 100
They were always asking to go to Tartarsauce, how could I say no?
I will choke Nanako-chan and fucking punch her in the stomach while Dojima and Big Bro watches tied up in the corner.
"Your lips Nanako-chan...I want them" I'd grab a knife and cut off her lips. The fucking bitch would cry tears while blood pours from her face as I'd grab her arm and yell "SING IT! SING IT YOU CUNT!"
She'd sob while trying to sing "Erredayy g-g-g-weat at yaa j-j-jeaunes..." and then pass out from the blood loss.
Oh what a day that will be. Just wait till Persona 5 Nanako-chan.
Possibly but I doubt it. It is a spin off after all. There seems to be some references to P2 and Sho could possibly have a bigger role than we think but I doubt it would amount to anything more than a cameo in 5.
I WALK AWAY
FROM THE SOUNDLESS ROOM
I want him to come back, but only temporarily. At least give the guy some time to fight and a say a proper good bye
