I play at least Persona 3 because for the last year I've been really scared of death, to such an extent that I dropped from college because I didn't have a reason to try so hard when there was no reason to any of this.
So I'm playing persona 3 to find an answer to this, as of now, I have to say the game has helped my quite a bit
>So I'm playing persona 3 to find an answer to this
wouldn't studying the writings of existentialists do you better than trying to parse what has been watered down for the sake of narrative for meaning?
Yes, but the problems I find is that there really is no answer. I know deep down that no matter who or what I read we are here just because. And when I'll die that will be it. In a game I'm trying to find a personal connection and reason, not just somo generalization found in a book. I know doesnt sound very intelligent but it kind of makes sense to me. Seeing the characters deal with it helps me look at what is similar in my own life
Believe me that i do have my own opinion, it went from nihilistic to optimistic and back again, I have found a kind of middle ground but its kind of hard to remain optimistic if you know that just because some kids were born in the wrong place they are suffering in many different ways while the culprits will not. Thats one of the reasons I tried to search for a more optimistic outlook, and thought that maybe this game could help me. And I'm getting better I guess
Do you think Dojima would kill himself if Nanako really died? Do you think he would let himself fall to despair? Do you think Adachi would keep throwing people on the TV without Namatame and the IT around?
>neat limited editions of other games
You mean butchered versions due to censorship?
Being german is suffering
We have nothing to do with Hitler anymore guys, don't punish us for stuff we didn't do.
i hate euro versions
it takes so long to release because they have to translate everything four times and give more language options
man fuck spain italy and germany. everyone needs to learn english, it's 2014
only through neglect. he'd never put a gun to his mouth, but he'd probably drink himself to death.
without Namatame and the IT, Adachi would get bored and start upping the stakes. Maybe go on a killing spree to bait in whatever Japan has for the FBI and see how many he can pick off.
>he'd never put a gun to his mouth
he seems pretty shaken up after nanako's death
what would he do going back home? the case fell on a cold trail, he knows it didnt really ended and to make things worse his daughter is dead. i dont think he would hold on long enough to drink himself to death, i could totally see him shoot himself after a few japbeers
tfw there will probably never be a Persona game about war and conquest

You're not tricking anyone. Go talk about your waifu in some fanfiction website goddamnit you're annoying.
That was the first post I've made here
I'm new to this place
And Yuko is cute as hell
Persona 4 cutscenes were really a huge step up over the P3 ones. Why couldnt they use the same artists for the anime?
I'm bored and i have plenty of free time
Should i watch the Giantbomb Endurance run of P4? does it maintain quality through the whole stuff making it worth to watch? i'd hate to watch 20 good episodes just to see it went to shit in the end
>You should better yourself through education and training
>nah. read the red book of Jung instead
i wouldn't be posting here if i wanted to be doing something useful, c'mon
It's pretty good up until the last two dungeons or so when you can start to tell they're getting tired of it.
That being said when I watched I skipped over a lot of the dungeon crawling parts.
I've seen it 2 and a half times.
It makes a great background noise, but it gets a bit boring near the end. You can tell they are tired of the game and were spoiled, even though they claim only one of them was.
The dungeon crawling and fusing parts are probably the worst, but about the others it depends on person.
I think I stopped the third one at...78? Something like that. Story episodes are fun up until after Nanako dies. Or maybe after they save her. Somewhere around there.
>I have found a kind of middle ground but its kind of hard to remain optimistic if you know that just because some kids were born in the wrong place they are suffering in many different ways while the culprits will not
The human psyche wasn't ready for globalization, in any of its forms. Hard to feel special when a million of people are better than you at everything. Hard to feel happiness when there's so much shit to be sad about.
The only solution I've found is, well, to put in /persona general/ words, to close your eyes and cover your ears. What meaning is there in yearning for answers to questions that doesn't have any? You're better off living in blissful ignorance.
That's what this game (and all other forms of , escapism) have taught me.
Izanami, get out. You're dead. Or fused to a tsundere or whatever.
Just bleeding internally on account of being dead.
So it seems. My bad.
Die on a fire.
>japs dont like marie
>yuros dont like marie
>amuricans dont like marie
so who the fuck likes marie then to justify all this pushing? it's a dev thing like nomura and lightining that killed the final fantasy franchise?
I'm currently like 30 hours in with Persona 4 Golden and I'm honestly considering starting over because playing on very hard is just... frustrating. Enemies one-hitting you just isn't very fun imo. I mean like, I'm only at rise's dungeon and I'll just skip the cutscenes on my new playthrough soo yeah.
Because I've played persona 3 fes, 4 and 3 portable (fes and 4 on normal, 3 on hard)
I do and I usually like challenging games but this shit is literally artifical difficulty and it's not like the persona games have mindblowingly awesome gameplay anyways.
How the fuck is this pushing Marie? Marie barely appears in Ultimax, she's a DLC character, and her only real connection is that the villain is tied to the mythology she's involved in. Remember, these gods in Persona aren't the real gods. Izanami isn't actually Izanami, she's a construct of the human CU, like everything else.
Is there that difference? I played on hard and struggled in the first dungeon (had to grind) and then played okay in the next two until I went 10 levels over the boss and 400k in The Game.
Golden shadows fucking everywhere man. Them stormy days
That she's a DLC character at all makes it pushing. Ultimax is also the final nail in the coffin of the vanilla P4 and declares Golden as definite canon now, that includes Marie.
More like Mori and Noel
>That she's a DLC character at all makes it pushing.
If that's all it takes to be pushing, I hope they really, really push Marie and maybe release a poster with her on it. Or maybe a single figurine. Then we can really lose our shit.
Hell, I think there were people on here within the last 6 months that have said stuff like that. Someone saying the Answer is canon because anything not in an initial numbered release can't be.
It doesn't surprise me though. I consider it a rule of thumb now that the Aeon Social link will ALWAYS get special treatment. Happened with Aigis, Marie is pretty obvious and if there's a re-release of P5 that'll include an Aeon Social link it'll be the case there too.
Speaking of that. Is Junpei's waifu alive then?
You get less exp on very hard. Idk it's not like it's completely impossible but it takes so much time and effort that it's just not worth it.
Spending hours on grinding just to get one-shotted by some random shadow is not my idea of fun tbh.
I think I didn't have any problems because I always get avantage.
I died twice and one of those was in Rise's dungeon because 5 guys caught me by behind in the dark (this doesn't sound right) and they all decided to attack Yu.
The other time was a Mudoon and I had run out of 'Eggscapegoat' or however the fuck you call the homunculus veggie.
The Answer is the definition of grindfest, but I kind of enjoyed the fights.
Specially those guys who repel everything but zio and have evade elec (and don't even have the decency of being weak to it, it just deal normal damage) They even where resistant to almighty and I thought that was impossible.
You're at Rise's dungeon and you're at only 30 hours in on Very Hard? I'm at 30 hours on 06/07 in Normal mode(Death Arcana Abuse). You're rushing it.
Does P4G fix anything regarding gameplay? Similar to how P3P fixed some things
and ruined othersI know about the new character, and an extra scene with your waifu, but since I can't get a vita I'm gonna have to read about it or watch it on youtube sadly.
>implying an obsessed waifufag would last more than an hour before lashing out because she failed to stay in character, according to his warped interpretation of chie's character, accusing her of being a fraud and sullying his waifu with her shit performance
man if i ever got a hold of akihiko VA i would trap him forever just to force him to say "Where have you been?" everyday
for the rest of our lives
also everytime i pulled my cock out he would have to shout I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS or be punished
>going to the movies with Koromaru
>"You tried to pass him as a life-sized doll"
It was a poor fit. While I think the original did a good job, she sounded too down-to-earth. Chie's supposed to be hyper and shit.
>not bugging him by quoting Grimoire Weiss
On the other hand, we would all do the same thing to Mitsuru's Japanese VA, right?
Thank her for a job well done.
Like there was any doubt.
The girls liked Pierced Boy.
Tatsuya had girls (and guys) fall for him.
MC had 5 school girls, a teacher, a loli, and a robot into him, plus a creepy middel aged Japanese businessman.
Yu had 7 (though only 6 possible in one run) schoolgirls plus a nurse and a VR attendant.
Yeah, he can't be Yu 2.0 but he has a pretty face.
We can argue about the exact number of each, but every protagonist has been a chick magnet both to people in and outside the party. I sincerely doubt P5 will change that.
I also forgot Liz for MC. Just a mistake, not a judgment. But see above.
Every man in persona is guy
Yu is gay, Yosuke is gay as hell, Kanji is struggling with his discovery of being gay, Naoto changed his sex because he couldn't deal with being a man.
Even Dojima is gay, looking solace from a failed relationship with a woman he never loved (cause he never loved womens) with a young, beautiful detective from out of town.
>Every man in persona is guy
Who are well-known for wearing glasses and neatly-presented suits?
>no "Happy Birthday Aigis"
You faggots deserve all the hate that Atlus has for Europe!
Happy birthday you glorious mechanic lady!
Thanks for the fun and shit
Happy birthday you talking protagonist
The more women you flirt with and the more time you spend harassing and trying to have sex with women, the gayer you are. That's how it works. /pg/ taught me this.
I know. This ones much better
>Finally, a Persona Q-themed Nintendo 3DS XL will be released in honour of the November 25th launch of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. This mode will also be exclusive to GameStop and will cost $199.99. Again, this will not include the game.
if you LOVE Purseowner and EO/"Sending Lolis into the Forest to Die", then yes!

Is there a reason as to why Margareth,Theodore and Elizabeth don't fight the forces of "evil" orchestrated by Nyarl?
When we fight them are they fighting seriously or do they hold back on us?
they work for philemon, and are meant to avoid getting directly involved in the conflict beyond offering their services.
nyarly wasn't meant to get directly involved either, and breaking that rule ultimately got him BTFO in EP
>Is there a reason as to why Margareth,Theodore and Elizabeth don't fight the forces of "evil" orchestrated by Nyarl?
>When we fight them are they fighting seriously or do they hold back on us?
They seem to claim that MC and Yu actually fought them seriously. Margaret even exclaims that Yu pushed her father than Elizabeth ever did.
So Philemon is a lawfag.
I always knew he was cool even with the ponytail.
Do you think it's more expensive because they can, or because they're afraid of how it would perform in NA?
I'm pretty sure when the Vita launched most games for it were $50, it was a terrible time to own a vita.
Yea but most handheld games are 40 bucks. It's not like the 3ds just came out or something.
Owning both machines right now couldn't be the best feeling in the world. Especially if you're a weeb. or you know, just love games
Well, after Nyarly stopped sticking his dick in the pot, humans have nearly triggered their own extinction twice, and the collective unconsciousness still has too much negativity for Erebus to stop manifesting
I'd say we're losing at the moment
They can. They are a special kind of jew that keeps makig stupid decisions but people suck their dick anyway.
Even if the game was 80$ and special edition 120$, people would still buy it.
Then we will have to wait 8 months for the DLC(and it will be 10$ each) and people will buy it anyway.
Europe might get the game in 2018 but it actually won't sell well and because of that, they won't release P5 there. Because we all know it's gonna be region locked, for no particular reason.
Eh something tells me he had a Plan C via P3. Yukari's dad did mention that Grandpa Kirijo and Ikutsuki were acting like a devil was behind it. Also their knowledge if the Fall and the silly idea of them becoming a prince.
>Yukari's dad did mention that Grandpa Kirijo and Ikutsuki were acting like a devil was behind it.
guess fugging who?
>The Symbol of pure Friendship
You'd think they's at least set aside a team of maybe five people once PQ is finished and they have all the assets and everything made so they could just reuse things to make a P1/P2 version.
So why the fuck would I buy the previous model? The new 3DS will play regular 3DS games. The old 3DS will not play newer games. So why would I buy this special edition of an older model?
It would have made the game much longer. Not that that's a bad thing but would the 3DS handle that?
Also I don't think they would have wanted characters like Nanjo or Maya to out-Sherlock Naoto or the rest of the gang.
>you will never have Tatsuya make any of the males, especially MC go doki-doki
Hashino didn't direct P1/2. He doesn't want to touch them because it's somebody else's work, as I understand it.
That's still wasting people and money on something maybe 2000 would buy.
Sure, even with minimal budget they'd get profit, but why waste time on that when you can use those 5 people to work on something that will sell more.
And maybe they don't have the 5 people that would rather work on something P1 or P2 related than P3 and P4. Being a part of a team that worked on something popular looks better in CV too.
After what happened in Ultimax? Yeah I can appreciate that sentiment a lot more now.
Still I would have liked to see cute chibi P1 characters in a game.
Atlus should give the greenlight for a a Persona1 or Persona 2 anime. It would at least make people a bit interested without having to play any of the old games.
Though the quality would be fucking hilarious. "Why are there two Ayase on the screen?"
>After what happened in Ultimax?
disregard story stuff, acquire cute cutescenes, portraits, and fanart.
If the waifus suck in P5, its all over. Still hoping Maya busts in to save the day
It's not Hitler, Anon. It's fuhrer.
I dunno man, they really made IT a bunch of drooling retards in Ultimax. I feel sorry for that bunch.
>replace Shinji's skin with Tatsuya
Time for for MC dokidoki.
People expected Golden to have significant lore stuff inbetween the non stop costumes and extra dates.
They managed to sneak the new story stuff under the cover of a new teenage waifu though, so jokes on us. I guess.
Posted this in /smtg/ and forgot to post here.
Kept you waiting, huh?
P1P PSX Music Replacement Patch.
Read the bloody readme inside.
Make sure to grab the right ISO here:
People were expecting something good and interesting.
Though now I feel kind of dirty playing P4, knowing that Sho is watching everything. It's just kind of weird. Does that count as shaking everything up?
>Why would they think that?
Some people play P4 for the plot and combat.
The irony is that all the changes Golden made to the RPG part, made it the most hand holdy, broken, and boring game in the series, yet Maries dungeon is a 10/10. the only good dungeon in the game.
why do you get to laugh, when I am forced to cry?
Mitsuo is all of us, really. You must face your shadow.
Those guys crack me up.
My nigga. Bloody Destiny is awesome. I'd even argue it's one of the best boss music in Persona.
The guy who did the patch for P4U2 I need help, which files i have to modify to force the english text ? I'm trying with the retail version of the game, the files are the same but after some tries i only get the menu and character select screen in english, the story text continued in japanese, can you help me ? :3
sorry for my bad english i think
>tfw you cant spite mitsuo by dating yukiko while hes still in town
many keks would be had
Speak for yourself.
The fact that you talk to a shadow demon before meeting Isamu that literally says 'You are me' didn't help.
I'm currently making a new one with the 1.02 patch data.
This one will also work for retail.
0/10 You will need a bigger bait.
Not while Lilim exists
I think my shadow would be a mix of Isamu and Adachi
Pic related considering its the best girl of the entire franchise.
Do you think that ghost that stalks Yu when he is working at the hospital is Rei?
It kinda makes me want to replay P4G to see how much hints they left. There are several scenes that obviously hint at P4D, and in EPP Izanami talks about Kagutsuchi.
>and GameStop will be the exclusive retailer
>the game is not included with the hardware
Great, so I can exchange my $130 SMT IV machine in exchange for a $200 PQ machine? Hot dog!
I think Margareth is the strongest considering game dialogue.
Now,do you have something to back up your line of thinking?
>wanting a loli assistant
Philemon isn't going to cater to your pedophile needs, Anon.
So i'm Izanami.
How do i hurt people with the fog?
Maybe the same way it killed Saki and Mayumi Yamano?
You summon your Persona with an app like the Devil Survior cast did with their demons.
Also, you get a disproportionately drawn rack if you're a chick.
I would a Nameless. With those daft fingers and confidence, I bet he knows numerous ways to perform in bed.
Quit saying that shit, dumbass. Catherine takes place in the far future. Space colonies and shit.
Do I have to be a chick to get that?
Don't let your persona take over you.
I hope you enjoy a fedora demon bursting out of your chest.
Now that's scary. A scissors wielder?
