>yukari not wearing a slutty bikini
That's wrong according to my dickcanon.
I don't know what you're referring to. I had to go through quite a bit of Chie pictures to find one that looked okay and could easily be censored. I was thinking of picking one where Yu was fucking another girl but that would've been tough to censor.
So I posted this just as the last thread died soo.
So I was just thinking about the teaser and had a idea about what I think the general theme is. It's already known thats It's about social norms and the like and that (From the teaser)Cellphones seem to play some part.
So Phones allow millions to interact with you, maybe not YOU specifically but there general outlook will be read (from their equivalent of twitter or whatever) and then somewhat etched into your mind, you can probably tell where I'm going with this... So basically phones are going to be a mainish plot point similar to tvs and escapism in p4 in that they will be one of the main ways to showcase the social norms being pushed upon people.
Anyone else thinking along these lines? Or is it just something most have guessed?
That thing with Yukiko pulling back a curtain from one episode of the P4GA. I don't have any examples on hand.
Sure, why not.
It's also Teddie's fantasy, not an accurate representation.
Fuuuck I love his design, probably because it mixes P2 and P4.
why is ryuko both naoto and nanako?
Why is he so cute, bros?
I want to pet the fluffy hair.
Dammit teddie I wanna see what the SO girls are wearing for bottoms
Can a man find love and acceptance halfway across the tv world? Or will he find darkness and despair? Tohru Adachi, an escaped convict hopes for the former in the tv world. He may end up finding the latter. Persona 4, Ultimax, Video Game Adapted. Yu x Adachi, Yu x Labris, Yu x SHO/Sho. Inspired in part by Radiohead's "Creep." Please R and R.
No glasses, different eye color, totally different.
>Your waifu is fucking trash
Too bad >>78982243 is canon bro. From the Episode Adachi script.
i dont know i think they would look better in the new one persona 2 EP is pretty close
really... fucking casuals shouldn't be allowed to play if they can't take the time to get good, and it's not like the games are really that difficult, if you suck you can always grind forever and get lvl 99
I'm sure Atlus will listen to your wise business sense
to be fair it was too short not really worth playing to know he was a door
It's real and worse than anything any fujoshit's wet dream.
>Did they go through some fanfics to get ideas of what "the people" want?
What Yu/Adachi shippers want and no one else.
Don't see why, she looks good in a swimsuit.
that entirely depends on what outfit she's wearing at the time.
I fucking hate her velvet room cos
I think we're currently at the point where expectations for P5 are at the highest they're going to be. They haven't released any details to actually allow us to really go conspiracy theorist yet.
Nope. But if you insist on doing that instead of doing social links, look up personas with the absorb skills you need and get those. Fuse downwards null phys and X master for whatever you attack with.
Fuck u all I'm not going to buy P5 with that faggot potterkun
Hell I would prefer playing as shitty fem mc again.
Why the hell have I enjoyed EP so much more than I did ISP? Maybe it's because I used an emulator to speed things up, but I've even enjoyed the cast and story of EP much more, despite them being so similar.
they gave Ken a Shinjiro palette.
how fucking dare you atlus.
Soejima is really overusing thick fringe for his male characters.
So far we got toaster Yu, brown Yu and Shadow the Hedgehog Yu.
He did do the designs, though.
Damn I've been thinking, they really made Pierce the perfect protagonist, didn't they?
The guy's pretty much untouchable. Never lost a fight
Faced some of the nastiest enemies in the series (and also silliest)
His other self befriended him and flat-out told him he's too strong to be taken over, as soon as they met
Arguably got the best ending
All without a wild card, fusion spells, or any trump card moves.
And his game did such a good job at blending him in as an average guy, it's only once you start drawing comparisons that it sinks in just how high he set the bar.
Man, good luck to the new protag. He's gonna need it.
>tfw want to play ken
>going to use nothing but the shinji palette
>mfw I get to use a character I like and cause butthurt at the same time
Oh, by the same I was referring to the story as in many of the events.
Lots of things in EP are intentional callbacks and retreads of IS stuff, but it's just much more entertaining for some reason.
The cast and the relationships were fantastic, Tatsuya was so much better than his IS self (of course) and things like Baofu and Katsuya never becoming BFFs but reaching a point where they each understand where the other's coming from were handled really maturely.
>persona Q comes with 11 tarot cards
>P4U comes with the other 11
Fuck. I really want those tarot cards. I don't want to buy P4U since I have no one to play with and I only have a stick for xbox. God damn it.
Nigga needs to change his fucking mind. He should just go the easy route and say "Because Philly is a weak nigga that's why he chooses special niggas to be his Wild Nigga."
Elsewise if every nigga could use other personas then they should be able to go to the VR and not act like a bunch of bitch ass niggas going "Omg what is this blue room."
Are you 6yo or something?
Anyway, the book spelled it so.
Ever wish your old high school days were like persona? Or am I the only one..?
It shows very poorly. What was the point in asking Tadashi to do the EPP scenario if he's not going to bother to use any of the details like Philemon being a weak faggot therefore everything is fucked.
When I was in high school P1 as current and P2EP was just coming stateside. So what is this about 2D girls.
>not having a crush on girls like Sailor Venus or Umi from Magic Knight Rayearth
Nah, I was into Valcuria from the old Guyver OVA, "Out of Control".
Adachi confirmed as an entrant in the race for Yu's cock.
None have Kuzunoha combat training. Just you wait, P5 MC can fight, and he don't even need the persona boost, like all other characters other than Reiji, Baofu, Ulala and Tatsuya.
It's only natural.
Goes both ways.
I guess they wanted to go back to the moe fuccboi protagonist like MC. Would have been nice if they had a middle ground looking protagonist like Piercy.
I get the impression that he may or may not be the protagonist. It doesn't really matter to me, though yes I will admit that even compared to MC Potter-kun looks like a pushover.
It's amazing what a scowl can do for a character.
>implying I'm a shofag
Grow up and learn to discuss, then we can talk
Potter strikes me as a decidedly generic character. There's nothing very special or interesting about him, which is bad for marketability. Marketability is key for a game and MC that will undoubtedly get milked for the following six years
All of the Persona protagonists have been generic, only the party members get interesting designs.
I'd argue Tatsuya is somewhat the least generic looking.
I disagree. He's more visually unique than potter by sheer virtue of his silver hair, and thrown open and untucked uniform. dude looks different than his peers. Potter looks like any mook on the street, Yu definitely has an Anime Main Character thing going on
I see what you mean. The post and the expression on his face gives a tiny bit more character.
That's retarded. Piercy has typical generic anime hair and he wears his uniform properly.
I think it helped that MC had hair over his eye. Something about it gives a "mysterious" feel. Or just indifferent.
>Sho gets a new look courtesy of the Kurijo group
>Shipped off to school, game revolves around him creating new bonds of his own
>Yu takes the role of being a secret boss you can challenge at any time, hence the ending of P4AU
I mean it's good because if they aren't designing the characters with marketability in mind, they might not milk it to death, or if they do it will be quality milking, and the characters might be good to begin with instead of the shallow characters we got in P4.
slave-kun is generic enough to self insert on, and defined enough to stick out in a scene (thanks to his dark messy hair + pale skin - his colour scheme is high contrast compared to every other character in the trailer)
i mean, if you look at this, where he's actually next to a generic background character, he does stick out
fanartists at least don't seem to have any problem with the design. they're going fucking nuts with it
Choosing the other option when talking to Sho at the end of the route
>opened his school uniform
Generation defining character. Up there with Mario and Sonic.
>Glasses, easily a defining feature on any character design. It's an accessory just like Yosuke's headphones
>Turtleneck with symbols on it that resemble "corporal" in a traditional military ranking system
>Layered, messy hair that falls over his face in a distinct way
>A lot of the trailer he's scowling, more emotion than Yu ever showed
Quite possibly the worst designed character ever created.
Anyway he still sticks out compared to other "generic" looking characters and we have no other students to base their uniforms off of, who's to say their uniforms don't look slightly different?
God damn boi I was bout to cap that from the video himself.
I also don't think the anime main character syndrome is a good thing, pic related. Wow, who's the main character here? I'm sure he's not that stupid looking fuckwit that has to be a special snowflake for the purpose of being a special snowflake.
As near as I could tell, P4 really ratcheted up the 'anime' in character personalities, to the point that anything remotely grounded now seems 'boring' and 'generic'. The protagonist doesn't need to be some crazy-looking monster to be worth playing as.
Jack, is there anyway you could dump the text for golden arena mode, with the skill names and descriptions of all the skills? I's really appreciate it so I know what the skills are doing exactly.
Or am I not seeing in in the pastes?
P4 had far worse Main Character Syndrome than any other if for no other reason than that every character got a specific colour to stand out with. Yu gets silver, Yosuke gets orange, Chie gets green, Yukiko red, Naoto/Kanji purple, etc. Even in the animations where some students do have variation (like wearing a turtleneck or having different hair), no one looks as ridiculous as the main cast.
I look forward to your bitching about how Persona 5 is the worst game ever because you don't like "Potter"
You say this about the only protagonist in the entire series (sans maybe Potter) that wore his uniform correctly.
Why would I go as far as to say that? He looks generic is all I am faulting.
Potter looks like a bitch ass. Piercy looks like an average bloke that could take a punch or too.
Look at this hard ass motherfucker. I bet he could take a punch NOW. An earring adds some endurance, y'know.
So I've been pretty occupied with practicing and just realized that I don't have Adachi. I must've missed something during those initial few days and now I have no idea what's going on because I can't read the moon speak. So...how the hell does one get Adachi?
Make a contract with me and become a Persona user today!
Fuck it, I'm buying Persona 5 and a PS4, I don't wanna play some inferior version on PS3
and there is Bloodborne on the line as well
What I love about Golden is how easy taking screenshots with the vita has become for me, I can't do that with a PS3 sadly.
Also performance wise I think it will the same case as what happened with AK2, where the PS4 version had better framerate and higher NPC density.
>higher NPC density
Persona 5 is open world now? Must have missed that memo.
Sounds like you're just trying to convince yourself that getting a PS4 is a good investment. Go for it, but stop pulling shit from your ass to make yourself feel better.
They are probably going to make a Jap exclusive bundle for Persona 5 which could either be pretty good like the DQ Heroes one or lackluster like Yakuza Ishin one.
I own one already so I don't mind
I hope P5 isn't as gay as the last three games.
P2: Tatsuya and Jun
P3: Shinjiro and Akihiko
P4: Yu and Yosuke/Kanji/Teddie/Adachi/Dojima
Surely they've tapped out on homo after how much of it was in the Persona 4 series.
I'm hoping for a gay protag because the reaction from all the autists on here would be fucking hilarious.
And watching the SJ fandom fracture in two between the fujoshits who adore it and the bitter as fuck lesbians who're crying about no FeMC would be just as good.
we all love assburgers naoto.
at least i do. i think its adorable.
288 page 'Persona Q: Official Visual Materials' artbook announced. Out next week.
>No middle ground
My detective intuition tells me you might have some of the autisms yourself.
It better look as good or better than Catherine.
Also, thanks to you guys, I keep thinking of Vincent whenever I see Slave-Kun's hair.
it's ok, you already got me, you don't need to keep going
So what are some things we want to see with Party Members in persona 5?
I want a boy navigator.
Teddie barely qualified as a person, yet alone a boy.
P3 and 4 have a deity attempting to give humanity something they want via a proxy and an avatar, so maybe.
Nyx attempts to give death to humanity via Erebus and the Nyx Avatar.
Izanami attempts to obscure the truth for humanity via Ameno Sagiri and Kunino-Sagiri/Kusumi-no-Okami.
YHVH attempts to chain humanity down via ____ and ____.
Or alternatively someone else attempts to free humanity via ____ and ____, since freedom taken to it's extreme or too literally (free of bonds, maybe?) is just as bad.
I think the earlier games follow the same kind of pattern, but I dunno.
So if 9 and 15 are SMT, 10 is BB, and 11 is GG, then what are 7 and 8?
Sorry man, I'm done with P4U2, but I uploaded all my tools here:
So if you care enough, you can do it yourself. I'm too busy with P1P now.
Should I continue playing Persona 1? I've made a bit of progress in the game (about 7 or 8 hours I think) but I'm not really enjoying the game that much. The story seems interesting to me, though. Should I just skip to 2?
Are you shitting me? Hibiki is awesome as a protagonist. He has all kind of dumb/jerk/amusing options to pick and his reactions/the reactions of people around him fits. Acting like a retard and having your party members annoyed is great, different from P3 or P4 where you can say all kind of shit and no one gives a fuck because you're so perfect.
Anime Hibiki is a shit though.
So I see all these numbnuts over the past few days arguing blindly over who the Persona 5 MC might actually be.
There can only be one answer and it's so fucking obvious
Cap this post.
>Choose Marie in Ultimax
>Receive a message "HURR MARIESUE"
This is exactly what I wanted, thank you, /vg/
Your rage makes my dick do jumping jacks in my pants.
P3P would be nice if they didnt removed the 3D walking around and the cutscenes
I know they did it for the PSP because it couldnt handle it, but still. FES with all the new shit from P3P would be the goat version
FES is outdated and the fact that people think the game is too easy because you can now control your party is retarded.
Difficulty shouldn't come from gambling wether you party members are going to cast what you want them too.
>And watching the SJ fandom fracture in two between the fujoshits who adore it and the bitter as fuck lesbians who're crying about no FeMC would be just as good.
Wait, this happened with Strange Journey? What the hell?
>I know they did it for the PSP because it couldnt handle it, but still.
Nope, they did it because they were lazy.
PSP can take much better graphics.
They were simply lazy because that would mean they'd have to make 3D events and cutscenes for the FeMC and they were too lazy for that.
>I suppose a better way to say that chained down thing is "free of free will", maybe?
Who wants to bet that the final boss of P5, regardless of whatever the actual plot, will be a deity who sees free will as something that holds humanity back or as the REAL slavery?
This is the shit I'm talking about.
I'm glad they made Yukari a lesbian in Ultimax. Really smart move on their part, too. Keeps three out of the four waifus from ever possibly marrying some other dude and insures their loyalty/purity is rock solid.
>Also the plot to Beyond Two Souls but reverse
>>78980354 was right all along.
Well, Hashino is already intent on giving every protagonist under the Sun a Special Snowflake Power™
So he may as well take it a step further and give the protag the ability to spread his Persona powers to other people. Within limits, of course.
That way, you could recruit absolutely any random NPCs you want into your party, each with differing starting stats, aptitudes, equipment compatibility, arcana, sociability, etc. for limitless party mix variety.
>But something something dedicated character writing
Whatever, I care about gameplay.
But there could be plenty room for those too. The PS3's a big guy.
>That way, you could recruit absolutely any random NPCs you want into your party
>Whatever, I care about gameplay
P-Team doesn't or barely does.
Should I bother finishing P4A's Story Mode?
I mean P4AU is coming out soon for plebs like me that don't have a ps3/4 and I just finshed Kanji's story. Is the ending as typical as the normal arcade mode's story? My
XBLAjust ran out so I'm losing interest in games on that console since all I play is P4A Skullgirls and DAS2
I was trying to finish story mode before U came out but I don't really care anymore
>no golden eyes
it's just, it's just not the same.
>Become the mega furry
Because demons are more attractive then humans. Duh
Its basically ERPing with the person except you're using their avatar and real dick things
ARMY RAGYO MUH DICK
If you fuck your own persona would it be masturbation?
it doesn't have a text language change option, so unless you can read Japanese I wouldn't suggest it.
Either have a hacked PS3 so you can run the -P4U2 English Patch + DLC Unlock- in the OP, or just wait another 27 days.
>Is the ending as typical as the normal arcade mode's story?
beat the story mode enough that you unlock and finish Liz's story mode, because hers and Labrys's are important
>mfw my shadow appears to me

Implying you'd be ready for what your shadow tells you.
>"you spend the days posting on persona general, don't you?"

Yeah. That's me.

the point is not telling your weakness and shitty stuff to you dummy, you already know them
the point is telling to your loved ones, to the whole world, broadcast to everyone that the only reason you have a cat is because you like licking its asshole every night while you masturbate furiously. and all your friends, coworkers, family and shit will be watching. and then you will deny furiously and your shadow will bring a cat with a pleasant looking anus and you won't be able to control yourself and this is when you lose your shit and the shadow wins
