It would please Atlus' fujoshi fanbase, which is already the majority based on popularity polls and overall fan production. But I'm not sure they have the balls to do anything but bait.
You see this as you walk in the room, what do you do?
It would be too predictable if they used Yusuke BECAUSE of Jun, actually. I don't think anyone would see Ryuji being the gay option for example. Right now, Yusuke fits more into the mold: similar character design to Jun, 'weird outcast', enjoys beauty/art, played by Sugita who has done homo characters before. It's almost like Atlus wants us to think this.
And that's exactly why it won't happen.
Or will it?
I think if they did it, it would have to be like Ai or Naoto's slink where you can easily fuck everything because it's 'hidden'. Unless they're proud enough to admit it publicly like Nintendo did Fates.
>Implying we won't get to rail Ann
She was made to breed. They can't just NOT let us.
It's not gonna happen, ever. They have to find some way to tie relationships to actual gameplay and commu does exactly that. It's likely they've just improved and changed the system than outright removed it.
p3 had better boss music but that isnt saying much. master of shadows sounds so much more satisfying than i'll face myself.
i do miss being able to use spare time to boost persona stats from paulownia arcade. just finished the ps2 version, those two months i just skipped at the end made me really wanna play golden.
Totally, but I guarantee at least one SL with a girl will have the chance of romance and one of the biggest things about Persona now is the social links/friendship making you more powerful. Even if "cooperate" isn't literally SL, you're still going to be hanging out with people you cooperate with
doesn't sound like cooperation to me
>in on the heists
I think it would be either this or the power, you convincing them to help you somehow or the power of friendship giving you stat boosts, better personas, weapons, items, etc.
FOR CONTINUING HOPE!
Also, is this the first time we've 404'd since pre-Golden days?
I want Sexyhiko to take his rough, manly anger out on me.
Is the 3rd movie out online in English yet? I need it already.
Anyone have links to hot images of Yukiko in the animation style?
This is so cute
Don't know of any others.
Did half of /pg/ regulars kill themselves on NY or something? Why so ded?
Well, I live in New York, so I assume if I were to kill myself I'd do it on New York, but no. There's just nothing left to say besides ironic shitposting. Why bother even having a discussion with someone if you suspect they don't even believe what they're saying?
Not from NYC, but the few times I've been there, it wasn't like that. I think they're trying to attract Atlus to set Persona 6 there. I mean, after Tokyo, you gotta do NYC. And then London for P7.
What if I like each in their own way and don't see the point in comparing them?
6 months till persona 5
Around 1 or 2 till news
why the voiced version of P5 OP is so fucking terrible ? Not only the woman singing sucks but the lyrics are shit
>Who am I? Am I not to be? Maybe I'm not here at all, Look, the fakers, Lining up their lies They'll break us all — what for?
GilGil confirmed for Persona
All of the monsters are part of the greater whole, said greater whole is the main for the last half of the game. It has a coherent narrative linking all of the monsters.
Monster/villain of the week/month requires the monster arc to be wrapped up at the end of said week/month otherwise its something else
They can put /pg/ on your phone, like that fake Twitter thing in Akiba's Trip. So they can get comments as they steal hearts
">Not killing people and then getting away with it
>Shit/10, lame ass characters"
"I WANNA FUCK YUSUKE"
"Sam V. is the Thief Taker General chasing you"
I see. So I wasn't giving it enough credit? The point still stands you spend two thirds of the game fighting a monster or two a month (which only appear on one day of course) and then spend the last third waiting on the last monster to show up.
The characters being the same old tarots you would expect them to be
If Ryuuji is Magician or Anne is Lovers, Atlus is dead to me. If not magician, I'm guessing he will almost certainly be emperor or some shit
You have like 20 cards; use them
Thats not monster of the month, just because its paced with the monsters appearing at a certain time doesn't make it monster of the month.
It sounds like you haven't even played Persona 3.
The only ones who should steal hearts, are those who are prepared to have their heart stolen.
We need a Zero mask photoshopped onto Phantom or a Phantom mask photoshopped onto Lulu
>I miss when Atlus didn't give a shit
you mean the Jun bait that they themselves in a interview say it was bait ?
this is not fallout 4 were the characters dont have likes or dislike and are blobs that will fuck anything
Yu is the biggest whore of them all. That's why he's such a perfect foil to Adachi.
I don't think you read my post. I stopped saying it was monster of the week. The point was clearly that it's amazing to think people think it has a better story than another game in the series.
I accidentally pressed submit too early.
It's the 7 deadly sins now, it's all over the trailers. pic related.
Would this be animation style?
Not that I have anymore, not enough were posted though
Even more super duper pic related
Doesn't one of the menu screenshots show Phantom as the Fool or something?
No. I think it's a weak story because nothing happens for two thirds and after that, when it actually starts getting great, it's nothing but waiting until the final boss. Don't even get me started on fucking Strega, having absolutely no need to be included whatsoever.
When Ikustki reveals he was manipulating you and the backstory of the scientists comes together, the story shows promise. Then it doesn't do anything with that promise, with the rest of the game waiting, then waiting more to kill the big bad.
>nothing happens for two thirds and after that
Thats no more true than it is for Persona 4. Having a countdown and build up to the showdown is better than being able to finish the months content on the first day like in p4.
P3 is paced with waiting and events leading up to the showdowns and it benefits from it.
Difference being there is actually a story in the first two thirds of P4. In P3 you are literally just killing monsters because you think that will help. In P4 you're actively trying to catch a murderer with many events throughout the months dedicated to that, and mentions of your task throughout social links you'll do when you're not doing those events. When rescuing people (and trying to prevent people from getting kidnapped) you actually get story as well as learning about the different characters. In P3 you fight the monster and that's it, Strega may pop up to remind you they're around, even when there's no need for them.
The events in P4 also happen without you being able to really anticipate them. You'll get the midnight channel then spend some time waiting for them to be kidnapped, then going around getting information when it happens (as tedious as the process is). In P3 you don't have any of that - you have a fucking counter going down until the actual event of the month.
Why bring up P4 and not the other games in the series? This isn't a P3 vs P4 discussion.
I think I found a more suitable game for you
haha jk, ghosts is probably too slow for you
I'm not even a waifu guy but even Yukikek is better than a literal who
It's not, its just as good as Burn my Dread and Pursuing My True Self. Sure, the instrumental version was better, but the sung version is by no means bad also>>127340175
M8 do you even Persona music? Lyn is the singer with the least broken English in the entire series.
Are you serious? I hope you're joking senpai
What sorts of thief/outlaw archetypes would you like to see explored with Unannounced-chan?
We already have
Phantom: Gentleman Thief
Ann: Cat Burglar
Morgana: Cartoon Thief
I would personally like to see her as some sort of cyber-thief/hacker.
The Ghosts story is written as an action blockbuster in game form as opposed to the usual modern CoD being written as a thriller. Its a nice simple story of the heroic Ghosts against the evil Federation who are constantly shown as evil and the eviler Rorke, it switches between "evil federation building evil satelites" to "evil rorke trying to murder us" with them intertwining at points. It does that well but its not exactly hard to pull off a simple good vs evil action plot.
Pulling off a cosmic horror story is probably a bit more difficult than a genre that whenever it gets boring just makes things explodes.
A wild west style bandito
Ok. I didn't know COD stories were considered thrillers, but I guess I had no reason to think otherwise.
It doesn't matter how difficult it is to pull off a story, if nothing is going to happen for almost all of it. There's no reason to even make the story if that's the case, let alone for people to praise it.
>In P3 you are literally just killing monsters because you think that will help
>with many events throughout the months dedicated to that
Theres events in p3 scattered throughout the months about finding out the truth behind the Shadows.
>In P3 you fight the monster and that's it
Except thats hilariously untrue, have you even played P3?
>The events in P4 also happen without you being able to really anticipate them
Apart from the existence of the weather forecast that announces when the events are going to happen and then basically gives you a countdown after the next event is announced.
>Why bring up P4 and not the other games in the series
Because its the easiest one to compare it to as most people have played it
>Hard-livin', adventure chasin', rootin' tootin', gunslinger qt with Belle Starr as her persona
don't be ridiculous anon, everyone knows cyber thieves look like this
How is a female old west outlaw not picaresque?
Why? They have a lovely new engine, their staff is not yet fed up with persona apparently, it's more hyped than ever before, literally why would they jump the gravy train? Expect P6 in 3 years or less.
I remembered they already have captain Kidd and retract my statement. It's just I thought Wild West outlaws are more about shooting people than performing elaborate heists and it's supposed to be a game about thieves and not thugs.
Atlus is giving you a new years present. You can add one of the following (but only one) to P5. Which do you choose?
A) A tie-in phone app designed like the one in the game which allows you to pet Morgana and raise her skill level ala Tamogatchi
B) A sequence in the game where you go back to Inaba, rendered in this gen's graphics and fully explorable
C) Ero scenes
D) Some sort of multiplayer element
E) Same sex relationship with Ryuji/Yusuke/any other male characters
Prove otherwise. You spend the first two thirds killing the big shadows because you think it'll end the dark hour. You spend the last third regretting killing the big shadows because it had the opposite effect.
>Theres events in p3 scattered throughout the months about finding out the truth behind the Shadows.
Like what? There are not many. There's some involving Yukari's dad. The only really big exception to what I've said is the summer trip - that's it.
>Except thats hilariously untrue, have you even played P3?
Of course it's true. You fight the monster, Strega show up sometimes (like I said) and you may not have a party member available - most likely due to them fucking around with the irrelevant Strega.
>Apart from the existence of the weather forecast that announces when the events are going to happen and then basically gives you a countdown after the next event is announced.
They don't tell you when someone is going to be kidnapped though. You get the midnight channel event, then the weather forecast doesn't do shit. The only deadline the weather forecast gives you is when you need to rescue the person, which means you can actually make P4 have a better pace yourself considering you're not limited to one day.
>Because its the easiest one to compare it to as most people have played it
Who cares about most people? I am not happy with the story of P3, if that's going to be discussed then why bother brining in other games? If you were aiming this at me saying it has the worst story in the series, then why bring up P4 and not even mention the others? Because you've only played P3 and possibly P4?
>E) Same sex relationship with Ryuji/Yusuke/any other male characters
all the male characters in the game are gay now wow so realistic
F) Update in P4G to add the female Yu as protagonist, Yui
G) Persona 5 to have a female protagonist option
how about no
Seriously did you even play Persona 3? Very few of the full moon events are just "kill monster, watch Strega", theres normally character development and other events mixed in, did you skip through all the dialogue?
If you think the first 2/3rds of the game was "kill shadows to make them go away" you really paid no attention, there was them trying to figure out the truth of the dark hour along the character development about how they all approached the dark hour and Strega.
If you think Strega are just there for the sake of it you may be retarded, the whole point of them is that they're foils to SEES and are secondary villains that want to take advantage of the dark hour, they don't just hang around doing thing.
The weather forecast tells you when something is going to happen, if its forecast to be rainy on an evening after the last foggy spell, you know the next story event is going to happen then.
Your issues with P3 aren't even present in the game, replay it and pay attention to the dialogue and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Option E was supposed to be "Pick a character who you would like to see a same sex relationship social link with" not "Every male character is gay/bi"
Saying "Did you play Persona 3" over and over doesn't mean shit you know. I asked you to prove there was more to the full moon events, you didn't. Instead you gave some generic reply about character development - you didn't even bother to give details like who or when.
Strega are completely redundant. They are just like the SEES - they didn't know the truth about the Dark Hour and then they find out the truth. Difference being they are always opposed to what the SEES want.
Strega don't do shit for the story. If you took them out then the SEES would have killed the shadows and Nyx would have come anyway. Their cult of Nyx is even more irrelevant - what does it even do? Fuck all. You are told when Nyx will come before the cult is even formed, so what's the point? What did it do for the story?
Sure they're their for some character development but that's about it. The story would have still gone on without it.
The weather forecast does not have a countdown on the top of your screen telling you exactly when an event will take place, you can't even see the weather forecast past a week (or something). It gives no definite indication of when you'll go into the tv world, and only hints at when you'll have to have rescued someone.
My issues are obviously in the game, is that really your defense? I see you ignored everything else I said about P4's story and you have still to bring in another main game in the series, in fact you haven't said you've played any other game in the series.
Loutus juice is a shit rapper and his lyrics don't even make sense, why do people like him?
Hear hear. This should go for the hetero choices too. P5 is revolutionary because you get to play as an asexual POC, with his MtF Finnish trans friend and his polyromantic allosexual. Oh and their cat who is a human otherkin.
is there more art of the character depicted in the image that has been attatched to this post?
well, the first heist film ever was about western outlaws
>not some fujoshi pandering
I'd mention that Persona has always pandered to the fujo crowd, but you'll deny it and pretend you're not fapping to MC art.
Rude, all those words are real anon. If it's on urban dictionary then it exists.
Even though Atlus admited that Jun was for the fujos, he still was an option. Kaneko shipped him and Tatsuya hard.
It's okay though, Hashino will stop the gays from westernizing the Persona series.
tell tumblr to stop making genders up
Alright, senpai. Everyone thinks you're cool and you're girlfriend will be there for you at your second period class tomorrow at high school.
P5 looks like it is going to be less pandering than 4 did, but who knows.
Because Persona grasped me with its normal non-animeshit characters and storylines, as it did most people I know that played and loved P4.
All of them, as well as me, hate anime
No it hasn.
As a matter of fact its all the contrary, all the faggots on /v/ fawn over the homosexual stuff in games like Fallout and Dragon Age.
You should go there, you seem like the type of person who enjoys these kind of things.
>getting THIS mad about something so fucking petty
It's so petty, I literally don't even know what you're getting mad at, senpai. What's wrong?
Obviously. It's the second best behind P2's.
Figuring out Adachi is the killer before the 2nd victim doesn't mean shit. The game actually shows you that he is not the kidnapper when Rise is kidnapped. Therefore any reasonable suspicion that he is the killer would mean that you;d have to assume that he had a partner, which is wrong.
Why pretend you knew it was Adachi? It just shows you didn't understand the plot if you thought it was him.
wow nice way to uncover yourself there
4chan figured Adachi was the killer for me, before I even started the game.
I'll probably stop browsing this site after summer.
You find Baofu attractive? If you mean character wise then I agree.
Not as attractive as her shadow, but I'll take it.
Appreciated. Are there no artists that actually draw similar to the actually animation style? I don't like stuff like this.
If Atlus offered a "prologue" to P5 that was essentially a tech demo with a handful of dungeons (basically Ground Zeroes) but releasing it pushed back the release date to late fall/winter 2016 would you capture it or just let it slip?
It will be 1080 vs 720.
>tfw I find P4G on PSTV good looking
>tfw P5 on PS3 will be beautiful
I wish Shinjiro could have lived so I could have changed him.
In the canon FES universe.
This game better be optimised properly because i don't want no shit loading times just like FE#
Nanako's future career path will be __________?
Her, Dojima, one of the non-party S Links or
Kanjiare most likely.
That would be weird at least for me. It's that psychological thing where it's harder to be sexually attracted to people you knew during their childhood. Nanako will always be lil sis.
i wanna cuddle with /pg/
Reminder that poochie is actually hundreds of years old and her underwear reflects that.
She was just trying to get on Yu's dick by making it a group activity. If she only wanted a live band dudes literally would have parachuted in to help her.
plus it is a HUGE plot contrivance.
sell 300 of anything at a 5000% mark up and you'll probably turn a profit. P4 cast was at the time pretty cheap anyways, and they had the time to wait for their scheduling to be cheap, probably alongside the voice work for P4G and arena.
MC touched her neckgina. That's close enough to a sexual act.
You touch the neck while she puts a couple of gunfingers up your butt. It's like 69. MC likes that kind of stuff.
Ken is pretty /fa/ for a kid. Shorts are at an uncomfortably short length though.
kids these days hardly ever wear shorts.
went to a catholic school in canada with a uniform very similar to that. can confirm, -40 without a wind-chill is still miniskirt time.
thats dumb, if they have to sit down on any cold furniture it's going to be torture
i cant tell you how it feels to wear a short skirt outside in the winter, but i can tell you how it feels to poop with bare legs on a cold toilet
you can sit on the inside of the skirt... I think. Keep your posture forwards and your thighs need not contact the chair. In a skirt you're supposed to sit forwards so you can meet your legs at the knees and angle your feet back and to one direction.
Hahaha Japanese schoolgirls are better at withstanding the cold than you, Anon.
If the girls equip the leotard or any of the other armors where they have a comment, they should have to wear it to school as well.
I don't know exactly how misogynistic the japanese system is, but the catholic school system allows for pants to be worn as an alternative so it isn't completely unfair.
And if you're cold you can always wear panty-hose to help a bit, but none of the girls in those pictures seem to do that.
If we had any goddamn text boxes in english to work with I'd be busting out spicymemes in photoshop as we speak.
As for what will come packaged in the game itself, remember the
So <character name>, if we pull the mask off, do we die?
alright, my photoshop is open and I'm bored as fuck, give me some memeterial screenshots of p3/p4 to work with
alright now granted I haven't played P1 or either of the 2's but something is bothering me.
The kirijo group works with the nanjo corp right? so those games exist in the same timeline. But then you get an odd scenario in which, by which both MC and Toriumi state they played Persona 2 and named their characters in innocent sin online after them. So by this token Persona 2 is both an antiquated piece of fiction and a real thing that happened.
This is some Drew Carey show shit. remember when they unironically watched Tool Time to fix their roof and then the next season they had Tim Allen appear as himself?
doesn't canon mean anything to these people?
the whole leather jacket oi oi look stopped being punk like two decades ago m8
Did they change Teddie at all for Golden and that's why everyone hates him? I know he was bad in Q, but pretty much everyone is bad in Q. I've only played P4 vanilla and I actually thought he was a solid comic relief character and certainly had more of an arc than most of the other party members.
40 seconds in a god appears
He's getting thrown in the TV next, I see.
His voice changed but it wasn't too bad of a change. His character, like everyone else in P4, became more of a caricature with the spinoffs and so his perversions became less cute and more obnoxious.
How did Dancing All Night end up with the best story of all the spinoffs?
genderbend chee and yukek are lovely and good
The only one I'd really complain about it Ultimax. And even then I'd complain less if we just had the comic.
Arena was pretty alright, it was just ruined shitty presentation. Labrys was a nice addition to the cast with a heartfelt backstory. It was also the start of the character shitting.
Ultimax had a better presentation but at the expense of a shitty plot AND shitty one-note characters. Literally Muh Bonds the game.
DAN had the great presentation of Ultimax and the decent plot of Arena. It didn't shit out the same gimmicky jokes and just focused on developing new characters while reminding us that this is the P4 cast. It felt like a genuine homage to P4 for the first time.. in forever.
I'm a bi man, and that scenario appeals to my need for hot robot girls and anal stimulation.
Oh, and nothing can turn you straight. Don't forget, you're here forever.
What's the point of that jacket without the flair?
idolboy is the purest rule 63
>The whole reason for this delay was to shill the fucking anime
It's not just that they don't know how to cook. If PQ is canon their cooking is literally poisonous to the point where it is enough to kill a shadow.
Remember, this is CANON.
Only when combined. And it didn't kill Kanji.
