Alright /pg/, I expect a post at least once every 30 minutes. If you can't do that at least bring me cake.
Thread theme for the next 3 days!
MC doesn't even like Mitsuru. If he was ever freed, he'd want a dicking from new and improved Boygis first thing.
Yu should be the one to take door-kun off the door. Saving someone from an eternity of agony basically gives you boypussy privileges for life.
Rise should do it, because reasons.
Evil spirit club is okay, dungeon four will get you pretty hype because the first floor is great. then it hands you two of the most tedious and time consuming puzzles in history.
Dungeon Five (did you think there wouldn't be one?) is pretty cool and has good labyrinth music for once, but the puzzles are a little contrived and one wrong step tends to throw a mahamaon and mamudoon at you before you can vanish ball.
dude it's not even hard, it's just fucking annoying,
step based/restricted puzzles in a setting where you can't turn off random encounters and can carry a very limited amount of vanish balls. fuck that.
ffs, why was P3 so fucking hard?
Even with minor cheating, I still had a hard fucking time.
Why does reality have to be this harsh?
You might want to check your math there, Risette.
But that's wrong.
You just can't get the epilogue.
Shipping is a cancer to any series, why even bother entertaining it. Especially in what is essentially a dating sim.
Also I'm trying too hard? all I did was take a second out of my day to respond. If anything shipperfags are too insecure to handle any negativity without feeling like it's a personal attack on them or something.
P4 being a half hearted dating sim is exactly why shipping gets entertained.
Whats is so halfhearted about it you choose the girl you want, do her special event and then you are in a relationship the game may have other elements to it other than purely dating but the protagonist is still the only one who can date any of the girls. In games like the 3ds Fire Emblems where anyone can pretty much marry anyone to anyone else I can understand it, but in a conventional dating sim it feels like people are just missing the whole point.
why cant it be me and her
Sliding time line makes him a like 5~ years younger though wouldnt it?
Yeah roughly. Though I don't think Atlus would ever use a sliding timeline like Marvel on account that it would mess up a lot of dates, specifically with P2 since it actually uses a year, unlike P1.
It didn't take me long to edit it. I still have the .psd file. I did, though, lose my birthday chart .docx when I had to wipe out my computer. I had forgotten to save it on my external.
Oh well. I'll make a new one when Atlus finally reveals the P5 characters' stats.
It's basically a retcon except it involves time. Instead of claiming that an event happened in 1999 and the current year is 2012, some stories, usually in comics or video games, will go out and mention that event was "9 years ago." Or say a character that's supposed to be older is actually younger than their current age.
Example, Captain America is from the 40s, but they keep changing the year he was unthawed so that it justifies his lack of aging.
Got a gamestop giftcard over the holidays so went in and bought Ultimax even though I hate the store.
Turns out they still had copies from the first printing, so I got the blow-up shit and tarot cards.
For once gamestop did something that was in my favor.
Not him, but I would buy a PS4 version just so I could jump around as Rise.
I dont even play fighting games.
Maybe we'll see it again during Rise's cameo in P5
Alright, I'm gonna get Marie this playthrough! I don't care if she's trash!
Is there anything in particular I should do? One month isn't a lot of time to max a social link.
Nah, she's not only there bfor the enture December (so until like 24th), but she's also available almost every day exactly so people who ignored her until then can still get the bonus dungeon and more time. He will be fine.
>Atlus claims new info will come soon
>Will probably not come for at least two fucking months
Yeah Atlus has a liberal definition of 'soon'.
I don't think we're getting new info until a firm release date comes with it. And that could be as late as a few months before release.
>A FUCKING PURSEOWNER
CANNOT FABRICATE THIS SITUATION
Probably replaying P4, replaying the IT routes in arena, and replaying the IT side of Q, all while listening to the DAN OST while two different TVs play the 2 different anime series that P4 got.
People who like P4 have been pandered to death
Good morning, /pg/. One less day until real life waifus.
so which persona girls would get the Quentin 3:17 seal of approval
And this is the part where it's confirmed it's all just deliberate crazy.
>last year during PV01 I was unemployed
>one year later and im still unemployed
Rise would be imperfectly perfect no matter what she did.
I wish her the best.
>dubs vs. subs battle
Oh boy, here we go again.
>The anime as fuck slice of life video game set in contemporary Japan, with Japanese culture and folklore, with Japanese teens, in Japanese high school, making Japanese jokes, voiced and voice-directed by Japanese people, made by people in Japan for a Japanese audience, in a language rife with situational context, is better in english.
Japanese is a dumb language, but you would have to be pretty insecure to cling to the english dub of a 100% Japanese product.
Thats got to be some weird American hangup, where anything other English or Spanish scares you
That is the greatest insult you can throw in Persona.
>where anything other English or Spanish scares you
From past experience, it seems that non-americans are much more inclined towards original dubs while americans are too scared of anything other than english
Its just easier to use the dub if its good quality, I like to watch Anime while doing other things and if I have to watch the screen for subs its a bit more difficult. Sure I'll watch the sub if its noticeably better but for Persona its not.
I'm not American either
>Sure I'll watch the sub if its noticeably better but for Persona its not.
Lets wait for the Atlus NA PV03 to judge the quality of P5 VA's since we are not on the 2000's anymore
It goes both ways.
And Yukiko is fine either way.
Of course, then the spin-offs change shit and mess it up. Point is that I can go either way.
Horie is best Chie.
Hanakana is best Marie.
Saito is best Metis.
Kugimiya is best Rise.
whatsherface is best Yukari.
Jap Mitsuru is best Mitsuru.
English Ulala is the best Ulala though, because its Yukiko. and Elly. and Lisa.
This is my view on it.
I get it. And I get that a lot of people don't like the dub voices. And that's fine. Dual audio is always the best option because it gives people a choice to do it how they like.
The people I can't fucking stand are the "You're enjoying it wrong" types and the type who scream because Junpei calls Yukari Yukatan instead of Yukarichi. The former are mostly trolls and assholes, and the latter just need to learn Japanese already, because if you're going to read translations, you're already not getting the "original experience." You're already getting a tainted, altered experience and just because you hear the Japanese audio that doesn't match up with the English text doesn't mean you're staying true.
Theres so much more to a language than just a translation, even in dumb cartoons and games made for kids.
Theres intonation and timing that anyone can pick up on, whether you know the language or not.
Any comedy anime will never work with an english dub, its just not possible.
Also voice acting anime has got to be the bottom of the barrel for acting.
Anyone whos really good is voiceing shit like the Simpsons, or doing real acting.
subs arent perfect, but its better than a dub.
Games have an advantage where they can talk as much as they want with sprites and portraits.
Anything that needs to be lipsynched to match the mouths and scenes on screen are shit outside of the original.
P4 dub may be fine
but inferior, but watch those cut scenes in it again, they're awful.
>Any comedy anime will never work with an english dub, its just not possible
God your so fucking deluded
I really would like to see an english dub of Joshiraku.
P4 was set in the countryside, where rain was a major plot element.
P4 was basically a cliche ridden dating sim with some JRPG bullshit on the side.
and yet they never used the "stuck in the countryside bustop with waifu" cliche.
Such a waste.
There was that one Rolling Girls pun that was way funnier in english
subs, but thats the only example I can think of.
Shit's random, I remember being punished for going with either liberal or literal translations.
Why is he the one doing that shit anyway? Shouldn't that be the localizator's job or at least decision?
Trying to translate the joke correctly had a greater chance of failure but still sometimes worked compared to direct translating it which gives you a higher chance of success but less cash
It wasn't translating it "correctly," it was creating a similar joke in the new language that would fit. A literal translation would destroy the joke but took less effort and had no chance of failing.

How do I break free of the depression spiral, /pg/?
again, how is that sad?
Ai has plenty of fanart.
Try being a Yuko fan
She does, you just have to look harder.
top tier taste lad
Its because all the P3 girls are so good she just gets drowned out.
There is no canon for her though
All of them bar Chihiro are top tier and she matures into top tier.
P3 girls being better than IT shouldnt mean anything.
You should know better than respond to those people.
Can Philly recreate me as a velvet? I want to hang out with Maggie and Liz and kiss Theo.
I hate Theo's outfit t b h, it's ugly
What exactly is that thing in the middle of the P Studio logo?
Of course she does. He's the only human that made her heart go doki doki
It's literally a P.
a shadow of P
What the fuck? How did I not notice that?..
Velvet Room girls/guys are the Animus, they pertain to Jungian psychology just like the rest of the game
I can't really remember but basically they're the human representation of opposite gender aspects within the minds of the protagonists
There better be chill-ass music with these pre-heist scenes.
Her character arc is good, that doesn't make her look good though.
If it's P4 the only correct choices are Margaret or Yukiko.
Golden anime should have got her to go to the beach as well, if we can see Marie in a bikini then why not Ai?
>they are still wearing their winter clothes
ATLUS YOU HACKS
I want to get scared and have Yukiko laugh that I'm afraid of horror movies.
So that makes sense for her to be one of the main choices for P4 girls that look good...
Ayane looks like pikachu and an 8 year old fused together. Yumi is good but her forehead puts her down. Big tits IIRC though. Chihiro is great but not quite Yukiko and Margaret, I' also count her more as a P3.
>Why not Chihiro?
Because she's too lovely!
Idk about that. There are better looking girls.
You're right, Waifufags are terrible
Fagfags will save /pg/
I want to be devoured by Elizabeth's eldritch Vagina!
So im bored and I gotta a group interview tomorrow and im nervous as fuck, in consequence, lets theorize
>January, current month
Atlus is focusing on marketing Odin's Sphere, it will release on nippon soon, but the marketing campaign should last till near the end of the month
SMT:Final propaganda throughout the entire month, it will probably die down on the last week of february
This is where things will get interesting, mainline persona games usually get marketed throughout a span of 4 months or less, so this month will likely mark the start of P5 news, anime included
Im betting on a july-august-september release date
It works fine in Persona 3 :^)
what are you, gay?
She's not autistic, just inexperienced and it would be cute to teach her how the world works.
She's too self aware to be the most autistic.
That picture is amusing. MC couldn't look more scared and if he wished he was anywhere else but next to Aigis. I don't know if the artist failed at whatever expression he was trying to draw, or if even he is tired of the Aigisfag and did it on purpose.
But having a review of MC's and Aigis moments together topped by MC looking uncomfortable as fuck is actually kind of great.
To be fair, we won't know how P3 movies fair against P4GA until #4 comes out. P4GA was mostly bad but it mostly just said fuck you towards the last few episodes. I expect the same for P3M.
Nothing in the PVs for the 4th movie was in the game. They added a lot of scenes with Aigis that don't even fit her character. Akihiko punches Junpei for shouting at the robot fucker. They indeed promise to go the same way.
It definitely won't get as bad as P4GA. I mean, at least the movies try to follow the story, with few changes. P4GA just said fuck the main story entirely, let's make everything about Marie!
Remember how Yu literally OHKO'd Ameno-Sagiri almost instantly, before it had a chance to say anything? P3movies are shit, but at least they try to pretend there is something more to them.
In a way, it makes sense. Why make an OVA/anime/whatever that's just an exact copy? They would want to make at least a few changes to keep things fresh and interesting.
Unfortunately, every change seems to be for the worse.
Comparing just the two may have P4GA as worse. But comparing P3 and P4 adaptations has P3 as the loser. P4A was quality as fuck, but it was faithful to the tone of the game, didn't favor any girl (or guy) and added scenes to everyone. You really couldn't tell who the director's waifu was, if he had one. In the other hand P3 gets just one adaptation that was taken over an Aeonfag who can't hide his preferences or even write his favorite girl decently. Also the story is filled with edgy moments as if that was going to make it deeper or better. Overall the tone is much darker and distant than in the game, SEES were shit friends, but they got along on a basic level. In P3M they barely interact with each other.
At this point in Persona's popularity, it's kind of unacceptable that Atlus would be so super secretive/stingy giving information about their new Persona game. No one wants to read mini-comments featured in some random Japanese magazine that states "Oh the way the story is made is different. I hope you like it." That's just stupid information that literally tells you nothing.
P3 was only looked forward to people that played the previous Persona games. After Persona 4's release, the series gained it's massive traction.
I still feel that P-Studio have their heads up their asses, but what can you do about it? We're at their mercy and can't do anything about it.
>At this point in Persona's popularity, it's kind of unacceptable that Atlus would be so super secretive/stingy giving information about their new Persona game.
Atlus gonna Atlus. Japanese studios do what they want. What's anyone going to do about it?
I already mentioned we can't do anything about it. Might as well twiddle my thumbs.
Though I still think it's silly when people get excited over dumbass blurbs that say nothing in magazines. "LOOK THERE'S A NEW INTERVIEW!"
>Persona 5 will be different. We worked hard on the story. Did I mention that Ann is part foreign and Ryuuji is a delinquent and Phantom is the protag?
>Though I still think it's silly when people get excited over dumbass blurbs that say nothing in magazines. "LOOK THERE'S A NEW INTERVIEW!"
It is, but people in general shouldn't listen to PR. But that's basically the only source of news we're going to get. It's vague news blurbs and interviews or raw speculation for years.
>didn't favor any girl (or guy) and added scenes to everyone.
There was a clear bias for Yosuke and Rise, but they handled it so that it didn't take over the concept of the game: friendship.
P4GA Yu just humps Marie's legs, fucks over his friends and family because she might disappear and is just overall a fucking mistake. He brought MC down a couple notches in popularity.
The worst changes in P3M involved Makoto and Aigis. They made him a retard who was half heartedly responsible for Shinjiro's death because of 'muh friends' but we never see him so much as blink at anyone but Aigis. Aigis is just a fucking parrot and it doesn't help that she looks gross.
It didn't really have any bias fir Rise, not anymore than any other girl or the game. Yosuke, yeah, there was very clear homo pandering.
>He brought MC down a couple notches in popularity.
Why would Yu bring MC down?
>It didn't really have any bias fir Rise
It did. Every other girl gets maybe half or one episode dedicated to a slink aspect. Rise got two just for her introduction and extra fanservice scattered throughout. Yu
Yosuke still was the winner though, that's true.
If you don't get Adachi by the end of December the shadows leave the TV world and begin their cull of of the world, you get a phone call from Naoto as she panics and then she screams as the shadows kill her before it fades to the Velvet room and Igor says you fucked up and resets time back.
>Aigis is just a fucking parrot and it doesn't help that she looks gross.
This. I wouldn't mind she that much if she looked good or was an interesting character. Aigis doesn't have much going for her in the game, so expanding on her is not that bad of an idea. But instead making her interesting like Arena, or funny like the manga, they just take the worst trait she has in the game and throw away every other trait about her that could make her a character that is bearable to watch.
> Got Snowflakes stuck in my head
> Making me super depressed
I got P4Golden (never played a persona/SMT game before) and I'm currently in the process of saving Rise. I have no idea if I'm doing well or not. I've been managing to save each person without a whole lot of trouble but then when I try to return to the dungeon to kill the extra boss, they always just destroy me. The yukiko one did an insta-kill move on me and the kanji one was just a massive tank who did a ton of damage.
What kind of shit should I be focusing on? I've just been randomly fusing shit and picking personas based off their resists/weakness without much thought. I haven't been buying weapons/armor all too much either but I can't seem to find anything decent in the dungeons other than accessories.
Or should I just not worry about it? I know there is a new game+ but I don't know if I'll bother with that.
Well, they might make her suicidal in the last movie, if only for some forced angst.
I always thought Aigis' arc was stupid though. She originally wants to protect MC to monitor Death and that makes sense. It gradually develops into genuine care, yadda yadda. But what makes MC more worth of protection than anyone else? He's the strongest Persona user in the cast and is the only reason everyone lived in the first place. If anything, Aigis should've just focused on protecting all her friends but she just remains static to make the player feel good. It's disappointing. Atleast The Answer fixed that.
There's 10 levels of diiference between each dungeon. Yukiko iss 15, Kanji is 25, Rise is 35 and so on. You are on high enough level to take on her.
Sounds more like you either aren't using buffs and debuffs(crazy useful in Megaten games) or you are just shit at fusing and shuffle time.
She does have her ribbon though
To clarify, I tried the extra boss soon after beating that dungeon. Was it still due to me sucking ass or should I have just waited to level up a bit more?
As for buffs/debuffs, I tend to only use those during the bosses and not during normal monsters so I can't say if I'm effectively using them. I try for shuffle time whenever I can and try to priotize stat raises. As for fusing, you are probably right because I don't really know the specifics when it comes to fusing. I just know that you can inherit skills.
Just a strong against phys persona should be enough, since he's after Kanji, Rakshasa will do just fine.
Still, he shouldn't have problems with Kanji's bonus shadow at this point.
Sucking, in my opinion. You should be able to beat the bonus bosses after you get to the top of next dungeoon but before you beat the boss. As mentioned above, try bringing Rakshasa with you for that one.
Nah, until you have tons of SP, using them on random shadows is a waste, unless you have trouble with them. Don't prioritize stat raises though. Focus on Magicians and Empreors and try to always get all cards, even if that means getting -50% exp or money, because that will make the next shuffle time easier.
Like I said, I tried each one right after beating the dungeon. I'll take your advice though and go back to the earlier dungeons.
And I usually go for the +2 draw cards even if they have shitty effects if it means I can get another sweep bonus.
>claims to be a fan of persona
Yukoisn't his favorite
If I won the lottery I would buy a boyfriend like MC.
you know what's better than Aika?
