Also I think that was my closest game against your Labrys. You just have to play really patient because once you get momentum it can be over. Though I thought I was feeling input lag, I probably wasn't and I ain't DSP, gg.

Stingray, I'm not sure if you already know, but you can hop during a chain in order to continue it if they're blocking. I usually do that, then after landing try for a grab, continue punch, or get out of there.

The P3/P4 characters barely show any emotion while parting ways while Rei and Zen didn't grew on me enough to care that much.
It is kinda sad in a way, mostly because it's the end of the tale, but it is miles away from making me emotional enough to the point of crying.

>>85357369
What happened to that guy? I wanted to see more PQ concept art. That was pretty neat.
What are the chances for it being released in the west? P3 and P4 artbook were rereleased not that long ago and we got Arena design works.
>>
>>85357578
okay bye
>>
>>85357585
Yeah but we don't think what we're doing is bad.
>>
>>85357568

The camera in P4 wouldn't be a pain with the mouse?

In p3 I hardly changed angles
>>
>>85357702
...So? Neither do the waifu people.
>>
>>85357532
Waifuspam is much more related to the series than you guys talking about each other using Ultimax as an excuse.
>>
>>85357585
My memory might be off, but I'm pretty sure I can remember this general split off from /smtg/ when Arena first came out. There was a lot more shitposting back then and it was over the exact same shit we're talking about now.
>>
>>85357745
I used a keyboard for everything in P4 and it worked fine.
>>
>>85357767
I mean what else is to talk about? The frigging game is based around people, we shitpost as much with waifus that with male character
>>
>>85357745
What? No. P4's camera angles are fixed outside dungeons and school, where you can use the triggers to rotate and O to set the angle. You wouldn't use the mouse at all.
>>
>>85357745
Oh hmm, I'd have used another set of buttons to handle the right stick
>>
>>85357524
Just because Atlus decided to go whore mode for neutral fags and add 5 hours of content to neutral route
>>
At the end of the day, I don't know why there's bitching about this is the first place. Is the Ultimax discussion actually interrupting anything? Do any of you feel fucking magically incapable of posting anything else when you see it? Not once have I seen anyone playing Ultimax bitch about seeing waifutalk or just talk about the main series when its brought up unless we're confronted.

Just kick out Arenafags and send them to the fighting games general. If they don't want them, that's their problem.

So long as the game remains a part of this general, you can't complain about them talking about it. Make a choice.

>>85358819
I'd gladly say kick them out

Fighting game meta doesn't have much to do with persona anyway, but things pertaining to Arena's storymode are fine.
>>
>>85358541
Those are all shit no one cares about except for people who post it or are mentioned in the post.
Shit like that belongs in a chat, either the PSN one or on Steam where you made a group exactly for this kind of things.
Go on and talk about actual gameplay all you want, but no one cares about how you did in a match or that you want to learn some character because of whatever.

That's a discussion on what happened in the game we were playing which is covered by this general.

Also discussion covered by this general.

It says Arena right in the title.

>>85359092
Okay then, let's remove Arena from the title.
Will this save us from your blogging?

>>85358915

>y-you guys can't talk about things I DON'T LIKE here, even if it's about the game

But we can freely have a discussion of Chie's big, greasy, shitty diapers. Something that's completely irrelevant to a game and is tertiary to the topic, at best. Deal with it babby, we aren't leaving just because you don't like the topic of discussion.
>>
>>85359191
So depending on if who ever makes the general fast enough gets to decide whether we can discuss a game or not? Yeah man, that'll work.

I'll concede the TRISMEGISTUS shitposting serves no purpose at all, but discussing aspects of Ultimax and offering advice about Ultimax is relevant to Persona. Much more so than

and other various, off topic posts.

>>85359513
If you think "How would Yukiko react to having her fingers cut off one by one?" is more related to a game than "How can I keep Akihiko from destroying me in the corner?" well, we might just have different ideas about what's directly related to the game.
>>
>>85359657

Loneliness seems to be a common thing for P4 characters. I think Yukiko and Chie are the only ones out of the main cast who don't have issues about being lonely.

They really do phone in the bonds with that, huh.

As an arenafag, none of you fuckers talked about the story mode once besides, "oh its fucking shit" and "fucking fanfiction writing" when pretty every single review on it said the story was excellent.

You should also let the mods know if you're doing this so they can remove posts from Arenafags if they insist.

>>85360407
>really? what a shame, his voice is the best thing
Overall the Golden VA does a good job at replacing the old Teddie, but he really falls flat at voicing shadow Teddie. He can't get his voice as low as the original guy.

>>85360428
Well what did you think of the story mode? Personally I don't think it can be salvaged, with the even more exaggerated stereotypical character writing, roundabout nonsensical plot, and stupid ending.
Mitsuru is the plainest example of how bad the characters got written, and the resolutions to the characters in the epiloogue scenes weren't very satisfying.

>>85360504

Opinions. The P4 story on its own was pretty terrible, but the P3 and Adachi mode had excellent resolutions. I hope we never see the P3 crew again, not because I don't like them, but I want to see them put to rest.

I loved the p3 epilouges, teared up for a couple and I never really gave a shit about fuukaa so I had no problems there. They gave perfect closure and I imagine the Public Safety shit was just for fanfic writers to sink their teeth into, same with Elizabeth's journey

I dont know I just get pissed off when I see it being talked down so hard here. Probably because most of the hate isnt what it is but rather what it wasnt (something that made P2 relevany in any way)

Two Wild Cards meeting only gives everone a Wild Card lite. The entire deal is caused by Chronos who brought both teams together to solce Zen&Rei's issue.
Then Arena and Ultimax happen, several Wild Card meet and no one gets special powers because of that.

To be fair, Chie always had brain problems.

Mitsuru was the only part of P3's story mode I was dissatisfied with. Seeing her and every SEES member complain about burdening herself with responsibility again just left me feeling like she had not progressed. Writers neglected Fuuka even in P3, so I expected that.

Labrys' epilogue made me tear up a bit. Stuff about what Featherman teaches kids too was also rather touching, as was Ken deciding to give up his role as an Aux member to embrace being a kid.

>>
>>85362324
Junpei continues being a little league coach and tells obnoxious kid to cool down and be a team player, which is the exact same thing he was doing at the beginning of the game. Not a bad ending for him, but kind of redudant since we get to see the exact same thing earlier in his story.
Aigis' was fine, Labrys' was good.
Fuuka's was awful.
Ken gets to be a real shadow operative and also go to school and be the soccer star. Woo hoo.
Akihiko goes to college so that he can do powerful deskwork and puts protein in his alcohol. Not especially engaging.
Yukari's turns into Mitsuru talking about how she's still too busy with Shadow Ops to hang out but being a Featherman makes Yukari a national hero or something.
Mitsuru is gasp she had friends after all who want to help with shadow operatives stuff.

So that's about three that I found as bringing a good resolution to the characters from where they began in P3 (or arena, for Labrys).
>>
>>85363453
> Akihiko goes to college so that he can do powerful deskwork and puts protein in his alcohol. Not especially engaging.

Well, at least he has a pleasant life. His college bills are probably getting paid by Mitsuru. And he has Aigis with him all the time as his assistant/nanny/manager.
>>
>>85363028
Even Naoto and Yu's endings are more along the lines of "And the adventure continues." They plan to keep working and investigating these things forever. Can't really give a final bit of closure when the characters aren't looking for a specific end.
>>
>>85363043
>They probably have some cheap ass excuse like Aigis was Chariot first or something.
There is still Liz and Sho though. That's four Wild Cards. Even using that excuse it's like one full Wild Card from Aigis and Sho, half or one from Liz and one from Yu.
>>
>>85364037
I'd like Mitsuru to pay for my college bills.

Akihiko is a lucky bastard.
>>
>>85364105

>Can't really give a final bit of closure when the characters aren't looking for a specific end.

More like "can't really give a final bit of closure because it gives us an excuse to keep their stories going on forever with a dozen sequels".
>>
>>85364229
Po-tay-to po-tah-to.

But I can't wait for the P5 spin offs.
>>
>>85364229
But why would they stop fighting shadows? I don't think any of them really want the world to end, and unless P5 is in 2100 they're not going to be dead. Even then Aigis would probably still be up.
>>
>>85363453
If Chidori died in your play through, it was great seeing Junpei's still strong feelings for her and him telling the kid to hit a homer showed how he's gonna move with his life.

Fuck fuuka

Ken was always in the shadow of everyone else in SEES and after everyone was doing big shit for the shadow ops, he was left behind. Now he gets that they didnt ditch him, they're just waiting for him to get older.

Akihiko spent his years after p3 being a wandering bum trying to get stronger after losing so much in his last year of high school. After the events of arena, he's grown up and going to move on with his life

Yukaris was great probably because I've always liked her and mitsurus relationship. It also had that not-so-subtle references to the mc when they talked about the themes of her tv show

mitsurus was good mostly in virtue of that last scene where everyone came together

Again, its all opinons. Its just disappointing how dissmissive /pg/ was of story mode

It's easier to get a harem when you don't actually want one or care about one.

>Its just disappointing how dissmissive /pg/ was of story mode
The more we talk about the story, the more it hurts and we start to notice plotholes and how retarded some things were and it hurts more and we just want to forget and move on too.
The one thing I'm glad for is that they didn't revive MC. Though earlier I looked up translation of the PQ ending and remembered that Yu promises MC to meet again and it makes me worried.

Kens was more he's going to enjoy his life as it is, which is why he gave his SO pin back until he's older, as it was pretty bored with his normal life at the beginning. He pretty much wanted to go on Shadow hunting adventures with the group.

Yukari I think finds a way to connect with Mitsuru by doing Featherman, as her problem at the beginning was how busy she was and how little time the two had been spending together. Heck Mitsuru was getting pissed with guys coming up to flirt during it, unlike when Yosuke asked her out in the True Ending.

Fuuka's probably would have been understood better if they included her own intro into the games, because she pretty much decides to help the Shadow Operatives until they no longer need her services.

>>85364186
Sho didn't get his till the true ending, and Minazuki had to disappear for that.
Elizabeth: Was trying to stay out of the events to see the battle between Solitude and Bonds.

>>85364668
pretty sure actively going for the social link means hes going for them
>>

No he's still a power addict. It's just that now he wants political power to go with brute strength, and he's being ungrateful to Mitsuru paying for college and has to have Aigis constantly nag him.

Yu's adventure continuing was impled with the Sho parts. With how he will have to be his senapi now and he will have to deal with him
>>
>>85364906
Anon, no one actively wants to be weak, and everyone wants to be stronger, socially, mentally and physically. If Akihiko wants to get political power to make the world a better place, then why the hell not? Its damn better than beating up cartel guys in Mexico.

>Junpei
Junpei's resolution is fine, presentation could have been better though.

>Ken
Ken really feels like he hasn't gone anywhere since P3, he's just a popular bishie now but otherwise the same little team detriment he always was. He only gets his faith restored in the rest of the shadow ops because Mitsuru tells him he's allowed in later, so it's not like he's expending any effort to keep on good terms with anyone else in SEES - even though Junpei, Yukari, and Fuuka shouldn't be hard to reach.

>Yukari
But it doesn't add anything to Yukari's character. She started out in P3 not trusting Mitsuru, over the course of P3 makes friends with her. This scene is more of a repetition of her already-happened development, than clearing up any other loose ends with her character. I guess there isn't much to do with Yukari after she got cleared up in the Answer.

>Akihiko
His reasoning for going to college is so that he can become "more powerful" to defend the shadow operatives on a political basis from the police. It's the same "I need to be stronger, to protect others!" shtick he's always had, but now he's not punching things. I guess he is pursuing a career and not just out punching bears, though.

>Mitsuru
Handled poorly. I guess she never realised over P3 that she had friends she could trust. Oh wait, but she did. So this was a step backward for her.

The Wild Card thing, how Marie had no idea that Kagutsuchi is in town even though she knows about everything that that happens in it. I temember also people talking about how Kagutsuchi's objective changed between the games, that in Arena he was still looking for a vessel and worked with Sho even though he was upset he has to deal with him while in Ultimax Sho is the vessel or sonething like that. I don't remember Arena that well so I wasn't really paying attention to that discussion but I think it qas sonething like that

And you can ultimately see the utter shit that it became. That Shadow Ops image still makes me upset.

>I feel like I can say goodbye to the P3 crew now and its thanks to Ultimax's story mode

I personally wouldn't. It's clear there is an intentional unresolved tension with Public Safety. We still don't know how or why the Public Safety Officer knew that Naoto was a persona user.

Sho always had Labrys' remote control, he was the hacker in Arena 1's ending. He could've just found it in the box Labrys came in that the hijackers briught to him

>>85366218
And yet he's strong enough to cause unbelievable pain and make it impossible for you to move as the Red Fog, create copies of people using shadows, and turn Inaba into a Dark Hour/TV World hybrid that forcibly turns normal people into shadows.

Then abandons this perfectly useful form for a crappy Eva knockoff that just makes things hot.

>P1P first
I strangely agree but only because it's the shittiest entry and the games to follow would only get better.
>>
>>85366523
I-I liked Persona 1.
>>
>>85366278
If I had to play P1 and P2 before P3 I probably wouldn't even be here. The games are pretty shit m8.
>>
>>85366389
Oh please, we'll never see the P3 crew again. Public Safety was just for the fanfic writers to chew on.

And maybe Mitsuru never knew who solved the Inaba case, but Public Safety could've been monitering shit and figured out who the Persona users there are. Its not like they're obliged to share info with kirijo

>And yet he's strong enough to cause unbelievable pain
Just look at Yu's portrait, dude is lying. Is that the face of someone in unbelievable pain?
>>
>>85366625
you don't need to play them but if you have enough self control and money, you should play every game in order
>>
>>85366596
I liked the story and the music but the rest wasn't in the right place. P2 improved upon pretty much everything.
>>
>>85366639
it's the face of someone with very few (used) portraits
>>
>>85366416
>He could've just found it in the box Labrys came in
Alright, I can accept that. But there's a difference between being a 'hacker' and having a remote control.

>>85366389
>how or why the Public Safety Officer knew that Naoto was a persona user.
I think they mention that the official police report made reference to Personas or the TV world. Which I think is bullshit, but ok.

>>85366425
Yeah, this too. You have a near-omnipotent enemy that you can't do anything about, with a powerset that doesn't make a lot of sense, and his end goal is to exist and destroy everything. Because I guess he couldn't do this already?
Also, the references to Tartarus felt pretty phoned-in to me. It's like the game had to go back and rehash the setting, because they couldn't make it interesting otherwise.
>>
>>85366638
PSO didn't even know what the hell a Persona was when he met Mitsuru.

As for how, I suppose I could imagine he got more information from another government branch considering that the government was well aware and backing up the Nanjo Group and NWO during EP.

I find it hilarious that the Nanjo Group gets out scott free from reprimand, but Kirijo is labeled as worse than Hitler.
>>
>>85366667
I will never go back to P1 or P2. I got to a monster pretending to be Makis mom in P1 and quit, I couldn't force myself through anymore. I went on to P2 afterwards hoping it would be better, it wasn't. I stopped when the Lion mask guy came up and maya started going on about m-muh fire. I am so glad I started on FES.

Everyones talking about the epilouge's but I just fucking loved that final fight with Sho in the True Ending when he immediately goes into Awakening mode and fights with Minazuki's moveset while Break Out was playing in the background
>>
>>85366758
I wish they updates the protraits for P1P. They would have definitely benefited from that. There's only so much of Mark's dopey face with dialogue saying "YOU'RE AN ASSHOLE" a person can take.

>you'll never date a cute, bubbly female version of yourself

In all honesty, would the anons here their female clones? Similarly, would the femanons also date their male clones?

How is this related to persona?
and yes, i would

The epilogues were meant to provide closure, not contribute to any further developments for the characters.

You seem to have expected something that has already been done.
