This is already better than Persona 4.
Will this be the best game in the series, /v/?
Can I play P5 without playing the previous ones?
Shes pretty much Yukari 2.0. So she is literal perfection.
yukari was the worst girl, I maxed out charm first so I could turn her down every single day
I'm gonna have to get this at launch just to have a chance of completing it in my lifetime.
I've got 16 hours in P4G and I'm at Rise, I'm really bad at RPG games, but they're fun enough so I keep at them.
Any tips, lads?
How can people like 4 better than 3?
persobna 3 is a fuggin masterpiece with one of the most well done theme/atmosphere of any game
p4 is just a waifu rpg
more clunky gameplay, tartarus, the complete lack of a story for the first half of the game, and some people just enjoy the characters more in 4.
>p4 is just a waifu rpg
unlike P3 where you can romance every single girl without pretty much any consequences?
>fucking loved it, considered it a masterpiece
>played P3 after
>wonder how I could have ever considered P4 good
It's too early to tell for sure, but the characters seem like the same old same old. Especially the blonde dude. Did we REALLY need another "bro" type character for the third game in a row? Junpei and Yosuke were fun, but damn Atlus. Shake it up a little.
You had me at guns.
Persona 4 was a little too happy go lucky. Characters in Persona 3 would realistically act bitchy/asshole-ish here and there but in Persona 4 everything was rainbows. It was actually kind of gay.
>mfw I will be able to play Persona 5 at 4k/60fps on my PC
I have high hopes but the release will be announced in the next 100 years.
As long as my Nigga Daisoujou and some SMT4 Demons, I'll be happy but the game won't disappoint anyway.
Yup! All stand alone.
Even if this were the case, the translation would be injected for the sensible people who have a modded PS3.
Your PS3 -is- modded, right anons? You aren't that dumb to have it running on their proprietary firmware, right?
SMT has good combat gameplay too if it's your first two SMTs
After that the general progression is always the same with final bosses being luster candy+ debilitate + spam almighty moves
So yeah after your first two/three SMT games the combat gets dull and the only thing that can make a game good is unique and deep dungeons which only SJ has
it's hard in a cheap unfun way.
one hit kills aren't interesting. honestly, they should've gone the raidou route and made it an arpg. that or made it more strategic like an srpg (valkyria chronicles, fire emblem, etc.)
show me one game Atlus ported to PC in the past 10 years
limit each member to their arcana. meaning only love can use arcana demons.
that way there's no redundant demons and there's still "uniqueness" and a semblance of balance. there was never a point to put the opposite arcana demon on someone anyway. I think it even gave you lower stats or something.
It's great when it's your first couple of SMT games, you are just figuring out all the skills and combinations and learning to use buffs properly, but after a few you know that around level 20 you're gonna have the 2nd level spells including mediarama, around your 50s mediarahan and around your 60's luster candy and debilitate, after that you just fuse a team with no weaknesses in your 70s and you're done
You can say that the P3 characters are just as cheesy don't be 'tarded
although that first dungeon always makes me cringe with chie crying and shit. she made me hard as diamonds my first time through but now I think she's just kind of a shitty character
wouldn't be hard to make the best game in the series now that they can put minigames on loading screens we might finally have some gameplay in one of these shitfests
>They constantly complain about how small Inaba is
>Evidence conveniently goes missing constantly
>They can't put two and two together
Or my favorite:
>They call Adachi out on the "well that settles it" remark
>Adachi easily could have said that it was because he still had suspicions about the missing people who turned up being related to the kidnappings and would have gotten away scott-free
To their credit though, they are just dumb high-schoolers that fumbled through a case in a town with even more retarded detectives.
I'm really hype because
>interesting MC, might even top Minato
>even more style than before
>I like Red
>You play as "villain"
Only thing I'm slightly worried about is the OST, but Meguro showed with the opening and boss theme that he still has it
look at this fucking GRIN. this nigga has fun being phantom
P3 characters actually have some depth to them, whereas the P4 characters have such minor issues blown up into fucking boss fights. I guess Kanji feeling emasculate was a decent one, but thats really it. The rest have some half assed character growth in the form of SLinks, while the P3 cast actually develops over the course of the story
Basically it was
>Do this thing because Mitsuro is 100% behind it
>Yuka's father also said in a video to do it
>Maybe there's just more people getting sick because the last Shadow is getting nervous
>Oh lol it was just Ikutsuki being a jesus
And what exactly what would have happened if they didn't kill the 12 Shadows? They still would have gone after people in the Dark Hour.
I still have to play through P4, but i never know how to manage my time right
On one hand i want to grind a little on the other hand i want to talk to everyone and don't want to miss shit
I'll never understand how people think P3 is so much better than P4. P3 characters and the writing in general is just so much more bland. And the story feels like every other JRPG where you have to stop the ancient evil from wiping out humanity, whereas P4's story is about a serial killer stuffing people inside TV's. It's way more unique and interesting. Also the gameplay changes they made are superior in every way.
The only thing I think P3 takes over P4 is the soundtrack
I don't think they will honestly.
But maybe it happens, who knows. Japanese are trying to get into digital stuff as of lately and more companies are trying to bring stuff to steam.
I don't think they will but if they do then i'll gladly play the game again.
>Game being milked for over a decade
>Not fucking tired of it already
Let me guess, you're super excited for the final fantasy seven remake to be the best thing ever too, right?
Or maybe your favorite RPG is earthbound but you only got it years after its release?
Sure it was good, but P3 was better
The only ones who prefer P4 have started with that
Thankfully, P5 will put both to shame and unite both sides
my point exactly. the mainline smt games function basically how I suggested they make 5, so there's no balancing issue. and honestly, you pick characters for their personality, not be forced to use them just because of their skills.
that's one of the worst things in rpgs.
Most of the appeal to me has always been the party building, but most of the later bosses in the games shake things up to break away from spam megidolaon monotony, like Ahriman's "Simon says" stuff, or Baal Avatar turning someone into a fly.
Press Turn is a really interesting system but it's not used as well as it could be, sadly.
yeah and it's lame, but its the last 3 hours of the game instead of the entire 90.
I'm not saying P4 is a perfect game without faults, I just think it's better than 3
Why don't P3fags ever give any reasons for why 4 is so bad and 3 is the best game ever? All they ever do is throw out buzzwords like waifufags and bring up dancing all night or the fighting games as if they are relevant to the conversation
It is easier and has less mechanics than the other games. The only thing P4 has going for it is that it is a decent entry tittle, and that their characters are more weeb friendly.
>>You play as "villain"
More like a moralfag chunni that dresses dark because it's cool.
At least Kaito doesn't pretend to be a bad/chunni guy so when he does good things you know it's how he is, P5 cast should learn from him.
This kinda annoys me too. I hate those characters
>Wow i'm such a bad edgy guy
>I'm going to help this people because i'm such a bad guy
And Persona 3 wasn't about killing Nyx until late-game.
Why don't you play the fucking games instead of reading the wikia and spouting bullshit?
I can't wait to see that shit eating grin in 1080p 60fps.
Hence why I put villain in parentheses
We might do everything for a noble moralfag cause but the means to get there FEEL villainous.
As long as I can immerse myself as edgelord thief I couldn't care less what the point of the heist is.
I just want to act as smug big bad, breaking into high security building of "da evil corporations"
>running something at 1080p/60fps
u w8 m8
>make persona thread
>smtfags don't fix it
>thread about persona past 2
>everyone shits on 2, 2.1, and 1
>they start waifu discussion
/v/ has always been and always will be shit
>make thread about videogame
>othervideogamefags have to come in and shit it up
welcome to /v/, you're favourite game is shit
It is currently in my backlog.
I am trying to finish DDS1 and DeSuO first, since I am at the endgame of both games.
I also loved SH and SJ, so hopefully I'll have no troubles to get into P1.
Wasn't Naoto trying to seem more like a boy because all her grandfather's mystery books starred male characters or something? I guess her being worried about getting looked down upon for being a female detective is legit, but it was presented in a really weird way, like "I thought I had to be a boy to be a detective"
>make a Persona thread
>"group that I don't like" comes in to shit up the thread
Also, once you have played more of these games, you'll learn to identify the people who know what they're talking about from the ones who are just shitposting.
Because we have this discussion since 2008 and in heated, rational threads P3 always stands victorious
After 8 years you and me are both tired to repeat the same shit every time. Unless you started browsing 3 years ago you should've encountered many arguments from both sides
>y'all just contrarian shitposters
It really is slightly worse, anon. It's time to let go
Fusion absolutely sucked, especially endgame. Party members were retarded. Story couldn't decide whether it wanted to be serious or lighthearted, likely a result of there being no small design document and the dev team really not giving any fucks about what everyone else on the team was doing until halfway through development.
no where NEAR the degree that 4 shoves it down your fucking throat at all fucking possible moments. P3 was mostly about intelligent shit like psychology and dealing with death. P4 was LOL HIGHSCHOOL AMIRITE? LOL MEMES AMIRITE? LOL SENPAI NOTICED ME XDXDXDXDXDXD AREN'T I SO JAPANESE?!
I don't think Japan really gives a shit about that sort of thing but why would it matter? As long as it doesn't reach Undertale tiers of forced shilling from tumblr it'll be fine.
I hope P5 gets another shota in the party. Ken was only adorable in his social link and P4 just didn't have one.
>mfw SMTfag and watching P3fags act as if their game is hardcore and dark
Remember when we could steal back release date?
Well Tatsuya was in 2, so It's not that bad.
