IT IS INDEED A PRECIOUS GIFT TO UNDERSTAND THE FORCES THAT GUIDE ONESELF.
You know I always doubt the validity of her translations. Before the game came out in English, she swore Tamami's father was also famous therefore he is Brown. In the English version, it's her mother that's only famous.
>I was thinking about getting Persona Q, should I?
Persona Q is probably not the best place to start, considering it's a fanservice game for people who played Persona 3 and 4, and takes place within both game's plots. It's not recommended till you play Persona 3 and 4 beforehand, unless you really don't mind.
>How do I get into Persona?
Persona 3 FES, then either version of P4, it doesn't matter which.
>I was thinking about getting Persona Q, should I?
Nope, you'll get the most mileage out of PQ if you've played both P3 and P4 first.
This series is nowhere near as deep as you may be expecting it to be.
I doubt the source material.
Brown is MtF and Tamami is adopted. This is canon. My maid is Atlus.
I just looked up the scene in japanese version, I can't hear much because of how Miku's voice is distorted but I think it doesn't say that it was "their" world of show-biz, like she translated. I have a feeling the entire thing about Dance Instructor being 100% trans is made up too, which only makes her being pissed about people refering to him as a guy on Megaten wiki and telling her "personal army" to keep changing the prnouns much funnier.
Post characters who are angels now.
Based Yu. Always there to take care of his men.
let me tell you about my basketballamerican thor:
>Thunder Reign, best Electric ability in the game
now shadow kanji:
>Uses Physical attacks
>Has 1 electric attack
>tough guy only uses physical attacks
people who use mara because it's mara need to goho-m
This persona makes me feel really uncomfortable and its constant pelvic thrusts are worrying.
We need to find a way to add this
and the few PQ screenshot where he says he wants to be the bride. I think on P3 side when you are about to get the results of the quiz he says that he will win
and Chie's comment from P4D artbook where she says he is hyped about crossdressing
Basically, that image cannot contain all the faggotry
There's far more homosexual moments. Someone just decided, that it might be too much for an unprepared reader.
you gotta learn to love the biomechanical phallic imagery, anon
you don't actually NEED to clear anything in tartarus.
Hell, you could stay on the first floor and painfully get to level 99 from there and then get to floor 265 on the
And then Atlus USA made him use male pronouns in game which only made it even more hilarious.
I don't, but I have this picture of Rise with a duck on her head
Literally 5 seconds, one of the first results on gelbooru. All you had to do was look for Kujikawa_rise and blood
It's probably like the mistake from Ultimax where everyone thought Sho wanted to protect a girl but he actually wanted to protect a boy (Sho himself). The term was gender neutral in nip but more commonly used to refer to girls.
Not really. She translated "kono" as "their", which isn't correct at all. That Ultimax mistake did make sense since Minazuki used "ko" to refer to Sho, which can be translated as either child or girl.
as comes natural to a thorough misogynist, Adachi is an expert cock-handler.
Akihiko is a fucking manlet protein obsessed homo.
Mitsuru always gave the impression of being tall too, even though shes pretty short.
Imposing, but short.
Undub used music from the Reincarnation album, there should be a patch to change it all back to normal.
>Undub used music from the Reincarnation album
Ew, why would someone do that? the reincarnation of deep breath wouldn't fit the settings at all.
Wouldn't mind changing the version of changing seasons though, the opening of that song is way too repetitive because you rarely get to the part with the trumpets before you're finished with your business.
Bad thing imo.
P3 has one of the better soundtracks in the series, P3P included.
Despite how shit the Lotus Juice songs are
I wonder if P5 will still let you use guns against human enemies/persona-users, assuming their are any. Not that it affected anything in P1 or P2, and Takaya certainly shot at SEES a bunch (shit damage, but still).
According to one of the interviews/articles, they're supposed to be modified airsoft weapons, but we still don't know how they work yet.
Say what you want about lotus juice, he doesn't have that horrible accent the female singers in p3 and p4 have that end up giving you lines like "SO MISELABEL"
It wasn't hard for Square to find a japanese sing who could sing simple and clean without an accent so why was it so hard for them?
Presumably they'll explain it when you first get them. Might have to do with that Munehisa guy.
P1 - Found at the abandoned police station
P2 - Given to Maya by JOKER in EP, Katsuya is a cop, can't recall IS's reasoning
P3 - Aigis is a robot
P4 - Naoto got it from her grandfather/police connections
Yeah but if we're going with the "down to earth" way the only way to actually hurt people with modified yet common airsoft guns is what I said - firing 6mm ball bearings from modified gas fed guns. And I'm not even sure if those mods would be readily available in japan, since their airsoft laws are REALLY anal - 1 joule energy limit (which in murican terms is about 400 fps with .20g bbs, if not even less).
Getting a real Tokarev/Makarov would be easier and probably much less expensive too.
Oh I guess there's also air rifles that fire pellets, are fed by revolver style cylinders and use the same gas canisters as GBB airsoft guns. Those can potentially hurt a lot without modifications (that's why they're classified as weapons). I'm not sure about japan's guns in relations to those but as I said you might as well just get a slavshit pistol.
Sure, but I imagine it'll probably be hand-waved with "this guy Munehisa has access to some underground shit" or "he's an expert in weapons modification, he did time with the SDF in a foreign country".
Whatever the explanation, it will be hard to top "the 15 year-old got a revolver from her grandfather" and "we had an advanced robot from 10 years ago hidden in a box".
that was kind of broad
after getting the stuff from the ramen woman apparently Michel grabbed two pink guns
when Maya and Yukino decide to join the party, yukino says that she can fight with whatever she has and maya takes both guns
What about Maya makes you think she would carry guns on her?
Dice, Hogans, Sigils, Mayas, Tanks, Minotaurs, Balances, Giants, Castles, Dancers, Jutons, Tables, Eagles, Ravens
And that's just off the top of my head, and not even counting P4
>The Maya (マーヤ, Māya) shadows resemble black blobs with arms and a mask sticking out.

>I got my moneys worth out of this game.
Arena does some very specific things to make you think Nyarly is related.
Even the promotional stuff for Ultimax hinted at it.
But then Ultimax actually came out, and just took a flaming EVA shit on all of that.
Here is an example.
Any abilities can be used.
Monthly reminder to wake up, get up and get out there!
I'd be more motivated to get a full time job and move out if my waifu had more scale figures.
I don't know why anybody would see this and think that it either means anything or is a worthwhile base for determining how many people got P4D or any of the other games in that image
Persona only sells well in Japan
I meant when it's june or so in P4.
>As long as you plan on finishing it later
I'm not even sure if I'll manage to remember what happened. I'll probably end up with starting anew and giving me max stats like courage anyway.
I didn't mean actual summer vacation, there's a summer vacation segment in the game, basically three consecutive weeks of free time where nothing happens. That's probably the best jump out point.
Not really, gives you more time to hang out with friends, the only true way to ruin the fun of a playthrough is to attempt a max s-link run. that shit is just tedious, reading off spreadsheets and FAQs and shit.
Can I still do shit like build gunplas if I have maxed out stats?
Regular, emulated. Can you even cheat in golden?
Oh, by the way. How do I get actually decent personas? Fusing only seemed to give me garbage.
If by gunplas you mean mechas, sure, any activity that is meant for stats will say "You don't think you can get any smarter... >Study anyways?" and let you do it regardless. it even gives you the little blips for getting additional stats that do nothing.
Fusion in vanilla is a bit trash, in Golden you get to chose all the inherited abilities from a list, rather than having to back-out and reselect your fusion to get new random ones.
In my experience pay attention to things in this order
>Weaknesses >Healing abilities ># of damage types usable >Buffs >Stats(stat importance is obfuscated and barely noticable)
Having a persona that has no weaknesses is most important, this is doubly true for P3 because getting your weakness hit in P3 causes you to lose an entire turn, meaning your team will now operate 2 turns on their own without being able to receive new orders. Big nono. If something is weak to light or dark you can essentially get instantly game over'd at any time and have no defense.
They are pretty uncommon, but they're good for making personas to carry you through somewhat extended periods of the game. Here: http://persona4.wikidot.com/forecast
I don't quite understand the second question. The first time you get a persona, it is registered in that state. This is regardless of whether it was a shuffle time persona or a fused persona. From that point on, if the persona's stats/skills/levels change for any reason, you can register that instance of the persona to overwrite the previous instance.
Any persona that is taken from shuffle time and physically enters your inventory is registered immediately, if you pull one from shuffle time and let it disappear from your mind it will not register. any time a persona is fused it will also immediatly be registered.
Further registration is only to preserve XP and skill gains since they were created.
Alright, that sounds good, at least now I know I can get rid of trash Personas with no regrets. Did the game openly state that feature anyway? If I did I don't remember it at all. That should teach me not to threat JRPG dialogue like flight sims' briefings.
I'm not entirely sure. You MIGHT have to keep that persona with you until you talk to Maggie, but you may auto register if you don't immediately dismiss it after shuffle time.
You can't subject a god to human morality.
Remember those guys who poured liquid aluminum into an ant hill in order to get a cool statue? by ant logic that is undeniably genocide. By human logic it's just fucking radical. Try stepping that effect up by one.
Is it because he used "atashi" as his I? Because if that's the case then that just means he's a goddamn typical Japanese faggot like Tanaka. Just because a man uses "atashi" doesn't mean he's trans. Probably just a literal cocksucker.
i didnt think i'd get a chance to talk about this
dont fuck with your emulator settings
today i realized i was squished in 16:10
i fixed the resolution and it literally wouldn't let me use my memcard files
i'd finished the game but i was trying to create a good save file to upload somewhere
loading/unloading a widescreen patch shouldn't affect your .ps2 memcard files
did you accidentally uncheck the option that autoejects and reloads them when loading savestates and get the data corrupted that way
>Speaking of manipulative forces, is the Nyx in P3 the same Night Queen from P1?
Maybe sort of.
>All Persona 3 girls become the MC gf
>Even though he is ded the posibility of him being revived means he is alive in a way.
>All the girls will get married/fuck someone while he is still a seal.
Is Persona 3 MC a kek?
No females from persona 3 or 4 will ever become romantically entangled and die virgins at an old age because they might potentially have been someone's waifu and must not be sullied.
MC will never be revived in the Lazerus way of revival. His body is gone. In Japan they cremate bodies. If anything it would free his soul and reincarnate, assuming there is reincarnation in the Persona universe.
actually the only time the P3 MC will be released is if there are more happy people than sad in the world, so it'll never happen or he'll finally be released when all of humanity is extinct
Lack of creativity, maybe the main reason they have tried to bury P1&2 out of excistance.
When you look at it it makes sense:
Rise is obssesed with MC and an idol just like Lisa.
Chie and Yosuke fight a lot just like Eikichi and Lisa/Yukari and Junpei, also Chie loves kung fu just like Lisa.
Yukicock is the school popular girl just like Lisa.
Naoto isnt inspired by Persona but its basically a copy-pasted character from an ATLUS game called Growlanser, character is named Julian.
Now look at the main P5 girl, basically Lisa 1.5-
It's almost as if Japanese games and characters are trope-y as fuck and that some characters and plots are basically the exact same thing if you dumb them down to a high enough degree
But MC is dead already.
But anon Kandori was dead and he came back in EP, someone dying doesnt means you are dead for good. Considering Philemon created another whole universe giving MC a body sounds like child play.
Liz and Aigis will become lesbos.
Phil said humanity CAN reach their full potential, its basically a given they will and by that time MC will revive. Besides Nyx coming was induced.
>But anon Kandori was dead and he came back in EP
You damn well know why he came back to life.
Kind of, P3 was also basically snow queen quest the game.
Im saying the P3 girls are that.
If you cant do fresh characters in a series composed of 4 games then you lack creativity to the core. Kagutsuchi was icing on the cake.
Also the Julian-Naoto comparison is actually like the same character, just diferent profesion-era (Julian Knight fantasy vs Naoto detective-modern setting).
Again Phil was the one creating another universe and basically reviving everyone that died in IS (Basically 99% of the world).
He did that mainly to save Maya, im sure he would had no problem doing it for the fucking MC.
Why would he? sacrificing himself was MC's choice, its the same situation in The Answer, so either Uncle Phil understands MC's sacrifice and respects his decision, or he simply doesn't give a fuck.
So? Phil literally lost the bet and he cheated Nyarl of his win.
Also Phil succumbed to the will of the party as Maya accepted her dead, same thing can happen with MC.
Im sure MC would had rather live than being dead if there are no concequences for his friend.
Again the revival will happen if there are no concecuences about Nyx.
Nyx coming was orchestrated and wasnt something natural, the point of Persona is that humanity can become enlightened just like Phil has said and when that happens then MC can live.
Blame ATLUS i guess for making the whole Liz quest.
You mean another seal? What if MC merely replaced the last seal? Like Jesus Christ?
This is assuming that the humanity will reach enlightenment like right now, not 50000 years later.
The main reason for wanting the MC revival is for the waifus aniways, so he will have to be revived in the waifus lifetime.
Only Ms Toriumi will probably die before fucking MC.
Luckily by Persona 10 the P3 waifus will be delicious mature ladies.
They were good, of course the story portrayed more of Aigis and Yukari but the other options are as valid.
Honestly i prefer ChihiroxMC
yukiko loves mitsuo and so does he
If it means getting P3MC back from the dead without the Fall happening, why not just erase his memories of P3?
Rise kinda of is Lisa 2.0, but everything else you mentioned is just circumstantial or plain wrong.
Also Im not sure you've played 1 and 2, because their are way better examples of Atlus reusing archetypes and character arcs.
>Now look at the main P5 girl, basically Lisa 1.5-
For fucks sake. at least get the joke about Ayase and Anzu right
Again people want him back for the waifus.
I have played IS, playing in P1 and EP now.
Want another example?
In the game true love there is a tomboy character called CHIEmi fujimoto that wants to be seen as a girl, has short hair and has an event were its revealed she hates bugs and MC has to take on off her.
And that game came in 1990, ATLUS cant into originality.
well that already did happen, its literally his destiny to become a door, otherwise he would forget, the fall would be postponed and he would die. it's only by the will of man can he come back, and this'll never happen. he'll be forced to watch everyone he loves grow up and die, he'll watch Aegis waiting for him till she die. hell I'm sure that if humanity goes extinct, he'll resurrect. a fate worse than death
Keep your edgy MC, Yu and/or Minako or GTFO
In the meantime, there's the P5 Protag to look forward too. Hopefully with Lupin as his Persona, he'll be a bad mofo that's stealing riches and stealing them hymens.
that won't work, the moment he signed the contract, he was doomed. regardless of erasing his memory, even if you go back in time and made him avoid it, it would ultimately cause The Fall
But i did got pussy.
Sorry you cant take that ATLUS lacks creativity, you probably even defend Kagutsuchi in Ultimax.
But he will comeback anon. The contract said he would take responsability for his choices, and reviving him wont be his choice.
F a m is also filtered.
Such a shame that her romance is so late in the game. I'm at the end of november and just finished her social link. I know there's a few couple's scenes with her since I'm playing Golden but it can't be that much of the game left. She should have joined the party way earlier
The contract ends when humans stop being unhappy, only then will Nyx be fully sealed away. This can never happen. Hell of you think about it, you're also responsible for his imprisonment desu senpai baka
It literally can't happen
It's either the entire human population is happy and he comes back or there are more people happy than sad, forgot which is correct but it can't happen.
Philemon only said humans can reach enlightenment, but that doesn't mean everyone will nor does it imply that they won't be 100% happy. It's extremely unachievable for all humans to not wish for their own demise.
Thats a curse for characters that were also party members, not for every girl in the game.
>go to sadpanda and search for naoto doujin
>expect most of them to be NTR garbage with Kanji
>happily surprised that most pf them are vanilla stuff with Naoto x Yu
>some are NTR but with Kanji as the kekold.
But she bled when i dicked her!
Its not the entire human race, Nyx avatar literally said if more people were like SEES then the fall wouldnt happen. In no place mentioned all people must be like that.
Reaching enlightment means happiness.
The fall HAD to be triggered in the first place, it didnt happened naturally so the desire for death wasnt that big to begin with.
Pretty much this, that's why P3 is depressing as hell. Literally a fate worse than death
She's saying that because humanity is unhappy dumbfuck, the second suggestion I said is true
Nobody deserves this fate
>it didnt happened naturally so the desire for death wasnt that big to begin with.
Yes it was. The game even implies this shit happened before. Nyarlathotep constantly taunts you that he's only doing this because humans want to fucking kill themselves.
Okay, but all I did was propose a "not too cynical or not too idealistic" way to bring P3MC back from the dead. All that can happen as a consequence is that he resume his mortal life, without his memories of his time at Gekkoukan, or resume being the Seal. In short, a Deal with the Devil of sorts, only the Devil, or Devils, being Nyx and Erebus.
Again if the desire was strong enough it would had happened naturally, The appriser was "awakened" because of the huge ammount of shadows gathered.
No what is it?
Then why Nyx didnt appear during the years from P2 to P3? Nyarl says that but the fact that it didnt happened means the desire for death wasnt strong and the fall had to be triggered which is why Nyx woke up in the first place.
Im still her first bf, the rest were just adventures.
No the game tells you that the kirijo group is responsible for bringing the fall.
I guess you fell asleep during key parts of the game.
Maybe the P3 cast should ask the P1 cast to kick Nyx ass.
Look the whole "Kirijo Group learned about the Fall" thing has always struck me as fucking weird. Like how did they learn about it? How does looking at blobs and running them through electricity specifically tells you about the concept of Nyx? And then there's Ikutsuki yammering about "Muh Fall" "Muh Prince!" like he was fucking Tatsuya Sudou.
Some entity was fucking around with Kirijo for all this nonsense to make a lick of sense.
Well it's no longer the original intended Nyx now is it? Or does it sort of apply with the "I'll be back with despair" thing and Erebus?
No the speculation went that Nyarly was pulling the same thing he did with Kandori and Tatsuzou with Kouetsu Kirijo. That he was whispering things into his and Ikutsuki's ears, which is the sort of thing he does.
I still think something had to have told Ikutsuki about the Fall and this "prince" lie he was swearing about.
Also this is random but you guys were not kidding about the MT wiki's talk drama about the DAN dance instructor. I'm dying.
Myabe something they learned from the Nanjo group?
Maybe they found something related to it thanks to Kandori (He knew about Nyx after all) guiven he is also responsible for the artificial Persona user project that the Kirijo group put to use.
It could be, but all that mess was happening at the same time as the events of EP.
I wouldn't doubt that they knew some stuff because of SEBEC since Grandpa Kirijo gets interested in shadows a year before the events of P1.
I mean if Kei Nanjo knew about Kandori, imagine someone which actual executive power like Kouetsu.
Fuuka bought most of the copies
>Stumble upon some Mitusru porn
>Its scat, which isn't one of my fetishes
>Its so incredibly well drawn I am seriously considering fapping to it
Look how smug this fucking idiot looks. Everytime I read an interview with Hashino or just see P-team in general this is all I can think of
I really hope P5 comes out good, but I can't stand these guys anymore, and knowing they're in charge really makes me worried. P4 ruined this studio.
Yep, he also apparently refered to himself as a woman few times though I can't remember that happening more than once in her translation, I've seen English screenshots of that part and honestly, Atlus' version worked much better
>Probably just a literal cocksucker.
He wanted to fuck Dojima, of course he's a literal cocksucker.
Is Kanami also a cocksucker?
Soejima needs to smile more.
She didn't reach out to the truth of her life.

Who has cute pics of cute toasters?
All Chie wants is to be a dominatrix.
Kanji is the funniest kuck ever. In reality, all he was going for was senpai's dick. He's 90% homo and only took interest in Naoto 'cause he thought she was a guy.
No wonder all the girls go for Yu, since the other choices are beta sidekick straight-turned-gay Yosugay and Omega Kanjizz Juggler of the Balls.
Melee Weapon: Dual Axes
Ranged Weapon: Grenade Launchers
Heart of the Sky: Deal Heavy Electric Damage to all enemies and cast Marakukaja to all allies.
>P5 introduces negotiations again
How do you feel about this? yay or nay?
But P5 is going to be the most SMT game ever. Think about all the similarities
It has the color red. There are things that resemble demons. Characters use guns. It's an RPG. It's made by Atlus.
>you'll never fuck Teddie's boipussy like Yosuke does, in exchange for living at his house
Naoto only loves Yu's cock.
You're a random neckbeard on the internet, and Yu is a fictional character that you follow in his struggle for bonds.
Nope, you aren't. I don't want to fuck you so you can't be Yu.
It cannot be explained, he just is
This is all you're getting from me, one picture should be enough to keep you going through the day
Nay. I like demon negotiation but the closest thing that we've had to it in this series has been garbage. Plus, I like to keep my peas out of my mashed potatoes if you know what I mean. Persona is a separate branch for a reason.
Reminder that magicians are meant to be super autistic and forever alone.
>the last game featuring the P4 cast
i think Fuuka works because MC being the leader and her being the support means they have a close relationship to make field work easier.
That and MC is a blank state meant for projection, anything works, really.
Because drinking would let them forget their problems, albeit temporarily. And I like to think that a drunk Elly would be hilarious to watch, and maybe can help Tats and Shinji crack a smile.
Self-incertfags would hang themselves.
>would people kill themselves like with Naruto's ending?
off topic but, what happened with Naruto?
No, but there would be riots.
Pathetic, easily stopped riots, but still.
It wasn't called Naruto SHIPpuden for nothing
I'm here just in case anyone posts cute images I don't already have.
Why is this place dying? You guys are getting a new home console mainline Persona.
In smtg we get a SMT IV handheld sequel and its more alive than here.
Or you are sad P5 its not yet another P4 spinoff?
We won't be getting new info until summer 2016 and we already discussed everything there is to discuss.
Except Risette's ass
