>PersonaQ: P3 side chapter one, NEEDS to be added to pastebin.
this 5 Confirmes P5MC is voiced by
People arguing about stupid things like Anzu's nationality when we should simply be talking about her outfit.
Don't forget your daily dose of medicine.
I fucking despise her, but she's literally the best party member in Q, and if you're playing Risky, I hope you chose Narukami, since he's doesn't have a permanent weakness to Darkness
I'm a huge idiot, if I'm gonna play Snow Queen Quest eventually then that means I get to use all nine characters in two playthroughs.
Reiji it is, then.
What if this character is like a Main Pawn and is a customizable waifu/husbando?
Sometime in November or December
>Saving the thumbnail size
Pathetic. Please don't use resized images from tumblr.
Is there something that Persona 5 can't do good?
Jesus christ Atlus didn't go one wrong turn at ANYTHING
What if it's one of the 5%? That would make sense, it's P5 after all.
>implying his hat isn't a giant
p3 was all greek/roman stuff, p4 was japanese mythology, right?
given that arsene is probably ripped straight from Leblanc's novels, the other personas will either be other characters from those novels or other good-oriented thiefs throughout myth and literature. Prometheus seems likely, Fantomas, maybe even Robin Hood?
>tfw Morgana asks you where have you been everytime you go into the cafe
I can feel it
Are there that many good-intentioned thieves in literature?
>I fucking despise her, but she's literally the best party member in Q
Best girl made it to the top in the end
I wonder what reason he has to keep a secret identity.
Morgana will be great.
As the character closest to you, not as le meme ted d punfucker mascot character
Cliche as fuck
>That mysterious thief is so mysterious and handsome, he looks young too, maybe hes about our age, ohhh maybe hes in our college!
>Oh its you Potter, what do you want?
>Implying people who didn't waifu who didn't use her
i dont even care anymore
>Are there that many good-intentioned thieves in literature?
Oh god yes. Between Robin Hood archetypes and Gentleman Thief archetypes (of which Arsene is probably a founding character) literature is saturated with this shit.
Interestingly, there's a widely known Japanese "Robin Hood" in their mythology - Goemon. There's no fucking way Goemon isn't someone's Persona.
because he's a thief, dumbass. Stealing is illegal
I really hope they don't put demon negotiations in P5. They're kind of cool at first but get old pretty quickly. Save that shit for SMT5.
Well, minmaxfags probably did. Granted, I picked her because waifu
in more sense than one, thank you Atlus for the marriage scenesbut she ended up being amazing so as far as I'm concerned this is a reward for being faithful.
And by that you mean all they had to do is not redo the story, right? Cause the gameplay is going to be mostly the same shit.
This isn't Final Fantasy where they redo the battle mechanics every damn time save for some reoccuring shit, it's going to be rock/paper/scissors with buffs/debuffs and instant kill shit.
The stealth mechanic, whatever it is, is new, and there's bound to be some new stuff involving the guns and whatever situation in which you fight 'demons'/persona shadows.
>P3 to P4
>P4 to P5
Geez I wonder why people can't stomach P4 anylonger
>completely different games in completely different genres are somehow remakes.
I come back to this general after a year, and this is what I see.
I was hoping people would get less retarded overtime. I don't know why I even bothered.
If you really want to go that way you can blame the new engine and Catherine for 3+ of those years. I'm glad they did it though because it was basically a demo to show what they can do with P5.

Nigga it's a fucking copypasta
I think you're right.
And I love every second of it.
I just came here to say I prefer P3's story and characters but the gameplay in P4 was better and the dungeons felt less grindy. I hope P5 has a tone closer to P3 but a bit more lighthearted, and that it has some dark twists to it.
Also, Aigis is best girl, P4 has shit waifus in general but Ai is pretty gud.
Nah, P4 was way too "childish", I never felt any sense of danger or even sadness, it felt like something was missing to make me truly feel for the characters. Idk, perhaps having played P3 for the first time in the days when I smoked a lotta weed might have made me more sensitive to it.
I left out PQ and Arenas because it counts for both, except for the Arena manga because Yosuke is definitely the main character.
Alternative Heart also should be on P3 side, dunno why it's listed under P4 when it wasn't even out by then
>Yeah you're me. Let's go steal,
>Shadow turns into Arsene
How much of the remaining development time do you think is going toward the PS4 version than actual development at this point?
Remember, it was initially announced to come out 'Winter 2014'.
Because everyone knows Yu will not only appear in P5 but he also will be the gay romance option
>I want it to be popular but still I want to be cool for playing something not popular
On that note what would be the fitting reaction image for internet hipsterdom? Like I feel like an actual hipster wouldn't be right and a fedora wouldn't be right either.
It makes sense. Now that we've seen that Personas are separate from their users now, in addition to the yellow eyes, that was almost certainly shadow MC transforming into Arsene.
that's like the opposite of how people on tumblr draw
What about P4's gameplay do you think was better?
I personally prefer the direct control system (every Persona and MT game except Persona 3 had it, after all) but mechanically the only major difference between 3 and 4 is that the protagonist can only use one type of weapon and physical attack types were further reduced down to just one generic type. Fusion spells were also removed.
So what exactly is better about it?
Did they have Matthew Mercer redo all of Kanji's lines in P4U or did he just do the new stuff?
>an empty slate
>has a shadow
That's the one thing I like about P4 and they completely butchered it after.
I still don't understand why people think P3 is darker than P4. There's really only the drug addiction persona part that could be seen as blatantly darker. One was just apathetic and depressed people wishing for the end of the world and the other was people gleefully wishing for the end of the world.
Is it the blatant angst visuals of P3?
Morgana and Ryuuji are shown. There are two women, and neither them appear to have Anzu's light hair, so these were probably prototype designs.
That's not Ryuuji. Prototype designs wouldn't make it into a cutscene presumably in the final version of the game. They wouldn't release a trailer that they spent a lot of money animating with prototype designs. That blob is not Morgana. Since that cutscene is seemingly when the protagonist gets his Persona, there's no reason for any of them, unmasked to be on the huge TV screens in Shibuya. I think you guys are really reaching with this one.
Pierce had like 10,000's of dormant personality aspects.
Everyone has a shadow precisely because everyone has things that don't surface.
>> Music CD for Persona 3: Falling down in march
Seriously,OP the CD is out, You can buy it! where the hell did you get March from?
What more proof do you need to drop this? An anon ordering the CD and taking pics to show you proof?
Oh I couldn't find any better footage of it online, and I won't even try capturing my own stuff because I suck at it.
I doubt it, but I suppose it's possible among the many things he's hiding.
This is just a small guide for those looking to get into the Persona series. Despite what everyone says, Perosna is a great series through and through and you can start at any game and know what's going on, as each game is its own self contained story. However, I highly recommend that you start with Persona 3 and 4. 3 is fun for the story, and Persona 4 Golden is often viewed as the best in the entire series, mostly [ADACHI IS THE KILLER] due to its fine tuned gameplay and excellent replay value, as well as interesting/relatable characters. Good luck with the series and I hope you have fun!
You fucker I'm playing through game right now.
did you just get here you stupid nigger? Atlus asked people at the concert to not upload the CD, I haven't even seen it on Yahoo! Japan auctions, but everything else, including the premium seat benefits, are up there.
its going to get publicly released in March, not exclusively like now during the concert, we talked about this a few days again, several times.
That whole exchange was literally Atlus breaking the 4th wall in as subtle a way they can, which isn't very. The thousands of personalities are the various players on the other side of the screen.
>mostly the same
well they're improving it. sometimes I wish FF really would just stick with something and keep refining it through iterations, instead of throwing the baby out with the bath water. that's what they used to do anyway.
MOTHERFUCKING FUCK FUCK
I MANAGED TO AVOID THIS STUPID FUCKING MEME UNTIL NOW AND IM CURRENTLY 3/4 OF THE WAY THROUGH P4 FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUU
Square wants to make action RPGs because old school RPGs don't sell without street cred or managed expectations. Atlus has street cred and a tight wad for an accountant, Square has neither so they buy into AAA development practices.
He's just messing with you, Yosuke is the killer
Why aren't you showing your love for the series /pg/?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but you can't imitate perfection.
Yu sprayed his spunk on Yosugay's gay face.
you actually let him in the party
ahahah, you absolute mad man!
He's 'that guy' the one who thinks he's hot shit but is really the biggest loser ever. also he's homophobic to kanji, complete fedora to saki and general jerk to everyone else. In conclusion he's just a shit.
I would eat ass for a main character to have a unique mothman persona that looks like this
Maxen X/Maken Shao
A shitty action game but it had some neat ideas (your 'player character' is a sword that possesses its wielders) and some great Kaneko designs
I don't think that's literally Mothman though. I think most of those Maken designs are original as opposed to based on mythological beings.
But I haven't played them, so take it with a grain of salt.
I tried. Not very hard, but I tried.
well, here it is either way because cute.
I don't suppose there are other versions of this image with different words? I feel the sudden urge to build up a collection.
pretty sure they just wanted to see how it would transition to P4 style music, kinda. either that or its leftover from P3, since they are on the same engine, makes sense some things would be left on the disc of P4 from P3. sounds really nice too.
>you see this face
>it's the dude from the band "disturbed"
Just in that specific screenshot, of course she's not Aigis.
Aigis is better.
Eikichi was a chill dude
Also a good bro
Junpei was a great bro but you can only form boring S.Links in Persona 3 so obviously he wasn't allowed one.
I like P4 more, but I think Persona 3 is a better game. So I voted for P4.
Making strawpolls is only stupid because people like you manipulate them to show that making strawpolls is stupid
>implying a personality isn't a program
Your brain is still just a glitchy biocomputer. You can't deny someone rights just because their thought patterns have been custom tailored rather than haphazardly compiled.
Machines are built to serve people, not be people
So does anything with tactile sensations
I can control Aigis with a fucking TV remote, it's a tool meant to be used. Old and busted once Shadows are gone.
Are we talking about the concept of a robot being considered a sentient being again? Wasn't this question answered already?
>a platonic bed
>the platonic ideal of a bed
>the best and most perfect bed that exists, which all other beds are but an imperfect imitation
Calling it know. Waifuing Anzu will heavily imply S&M relations.
Slave-kun would be the M, of course
Someone remind me, Fuuka and Junpei quit Gekkoukan after P3 right? Makoto died, Shinjiro died, Ken and Koromaru were at the Elementary building and Mitsuru and Akihiko graduated. As far as I know, Only Fuuka went to college. Good for her. without college you usually end up serving burgers for the rest of your life.
I think P3 is a better game mostly due to its combat being at nighttime rather than P4's system of "do a dungeon in one day and then don't do any combat for an in-game month." But I like P4's story and pacing and atmosphere better. So P4 is my favourite.
Only if you major in something stupid like "History" "Culture" and "Arts" smart people do some form of computer science or engineering. Others who don't are better off at a trade school than wasting coin learning just a fourth of what kind of physical style of work you plan on doing.
>tfw real girl but no other real girl to be with
So i finally started playing Persona (the PSP remake) after seeing the Gun system in P5 and my friends told me about how similar it is with the one on the original game.
And i fell in love with the soundtracks and got heartbroken when seeing all the pastebin links are down.
Does any of you have another link to access the soundtracks? I really need to listen to all the soundtracks.
Thanks in advance
>>tfw real girl
yeah, sure anon. I'm a girl too.
Okay, I looked for help on /v/ and they told me I'd probably get more help here so here's a copy paste of my OP:
So I just started playing Persona 3 (FES I think?) and I only kind of understand what's going on. Is this game on a time limit? If so what happens when it runs out? If I don't get stats high enough by the set boss fights am I basically just fucked? Can my personas evolve? Do I get to have multiple girlfriends? This game has so much stuff in it and it feels great but there's just so much I don't understand. Pic related is how it makes me feel. I'm on the second full moon event now and I just got one shotted by the boss.
I'm pretty sure she can get a better job at kirijo
ikutski betrays you
adachi is the killer
I wanna touch it either way. Although what matters most is what's on the inside.
You don't need booty to be the best
although it helps, why did I have to fall for the girl with no ass?
But she has tits!
