Anyone here a fan of some moe demon fusing games?

Only played Strange Journey so far. And quit during the teleporter maze. I liked the underlying mechanics, though. And the demon designs were incredible.

Only one I've played is Persona 3 (I borrowed it from my school's library and burned through it in a week and a half), and I loved the hell out of it. I plan to do the same for Persona 4 before the summer is out.
>> No. 154464
Yeah, I loved Persona 3 and am planning to get Persona 4 as soon as I get a Vita (though that might be some time since there's not much else on it I want to play yet), but I've heard the other games in the series, even the earlier games in the Persona subseries, were quite different.

Megaten fans, any thoughts on if I'll like other games in the series if I actually liked the Dating Sim elements of 3?
>> No. 154466
I enjoyed both the combat aspect and the dating sim aspects of P3. Although I'll admit, sometimes when I was grinding my way up Tartarus I'd wish that part of it would just get out of the way and let me S. Link to eternity.
>> No. 154468
I really hope Sony eventually allows you to actually play PSP/Vita games on PS3 because I can never comfortably play their portable systems. If a PS3 can actually download and hold an entire PSP game, then I just can't for the life of me figure out why they don't let you play those files like PS2 or 1 games they put on PlayStation store.

Would love it if they somehow found a way to combine FES and P3P into some kind of HD remake. Atlus wouldn't even have to tweak the graphics that much. Just make sure every persona game can be played on either current or next gen consoles and maybe release some info on Persona 5.
>> No. 154470
If you liked P3, you will most likely consider P4 a god send, because it takes P3's many, MANY flaws and fixes basically all of them. The dungeon crawling is better (less repetitive/no annoying fatigue mechanic), almost all of the Social Links are enjoyable, your party members are actually LIKABLE, the list goes on and on. Literally the only thing P3 has over 4 is that the final boss is better in the former.

As for the other games, I've yet to play a main series SMT game, but I found Nocturne in a bin recently and plan to play it after I'm done with Xenoblade. Other than that, I played a few hours of Persona 1 PSP, then returned that piece of shit game to the store. I also played Demikids Dark, which sucked, though I liked that you got a dinosaur you could ride and that the ultimate answer seemed to be to fuse all demons into said dinosaur. What I didn't like is that by the end of the game you could auto everything. I BEAT THE FINAL BOSS BY DOING NOTHING BUT AUTO ATTACK.

Other than that I've just seen GB's quick look of Devil Summoner 2, which looked kind of cool.
>> No. 154472

I actually only rarely encountered the fatigue mechanic at all after I was out of the first block. Usually I could get through a month's climb with only a night or two without anyone every becoming tired.
>> No. 154473
Yeah, I'm looking forward to 4. If I didn't find portable games so much easier to play for long periods of time, I'd have already bought it on PS2, in fact.
>> No. 154474

Carleton University. It has a game development program, so they asked the library to acquire a small collection of video games. It's got Persona 3 and 4, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Silent Hill 2...that's what I remember off the top of my head, but there's more. It's not a particularly large collection but it's there.

PS VITA ペルソナ4 ザ・…youtube thumb

...I have no words.

Anyway I'm playing Nocturne now with a friend. Pretty rad, though the dungeons themselves aren't very good, particularly the Amala Network. Was doing okay until I hit a certain boss. Those of you have have played it probably know exactly who it is. I'm grinding and getting a few choice anti-force demons right now.

I think the new op is super cute! Naoto is best dancer.
>> No. 154985
Oh I appreciate everyone's swagger (and yes Naoto is the best), but the song is shit. I mean, after Pursuing My True Self and Sky's The Limit, what the hell is this?

Come to think of it P3P's OP was also pretty bad. Soul Phrase I think it was called?
>> No. 154992
P3P's song was SO BAD god but I'm really kind of bummed that we didn't get a really swank OP like P3:FES had, where you got to see more animated segments and stuff... I mean, this one is CUTE AS FUCK but what I'm saying is that I miss my random french in a my japanese game
>> No. 154997
The only reason people didn't like P3P's intro was because the anti-Rastafarian shittyness of Burn My Dread grew on them after time.

I once hated both, but grew to love them.
>> No. 155000
No, Soul Phrase just sucks. Burn My Dread is just kind of okay. As for P4G, maybe I do just need time to grow on it. /vg/'s been raging at the intro a lot, to the point where someone slapped Eternal Punishment's PSP OP over it with tubedubber.
>> No. 155003
The video is good but the song doesn't fit at all...
>> No. 155033
/vg/ has found the video goes with damn near every song besides the one that they actually put to it.

Also they've got a new battle song that apparently plays whenever you don't get Player Advantage (if you do it's still Reach Out To the Truth).

One of my internet friends and I decided to play some Imagine on a lark.

My god this game is weird. We haven't played much, just got out of the tutorials (we think) and made it to Baby's First Real dungeon. We have limited understanding of what we're doing, the map is almost useless (we couldn't find the Cathedral), and stepping out into a vast horde of Jack Frost's running player shops was an incredibly surreal experience. Not to mention the paranoia I get when some random asshole passes us with a fucking Matador following him.

I'm pretty sure you started that sentence two times too many.

Anyway, this was an after-the-fact realization. I obviously got that NYX WAS THE MOOOOOON while playing, it just didn't hit me to connect that to the lunar cycle that dominates the game until later.

He's Pierrot, apparently.

I can't really imagine what the fuck a social link with him would be ABOUT though, but then again it's likely a better addition to the game than Marie ever could be.

Also I'm not really all that educated on the Vita, but I'm told that if you have a PS3 you can connect it to your Vita and play Vita games on your TV or something? Because if that's the case I might actually be interested in getting the Golden (though I'm getting a 3DS before a Vita either way).

That's like...anti-Kanji. Like that's what a new Shadow would look like. He's gone from punk looking to looking like a dude who steals underwear. And he doesn't even sniff it, he puts it between fiberglass screens or something. He somehow looks more threatening.

I think it's his haircut, really. That's what does it.

It's stupid because the entire point of his story in the original game was that he COULD be the macho biker guy and also like sewing.

I guess it's because I haven't gone through P3 yet, but I totally forgot there were robots in this world. I guess that's what happens when you put the sequel to a strange super-techno-horror-thriller thing in a rural town in Bumfuck Nowhere, Japan where nothing important was happening. You forget people in Tokyo have fucking androids at their service who are capable of having souls.

Also yeah, out of context Naoto fanservice that looks like it should have been in an H Doujin. I wonder what's going on there. I assume it's somebody's daydream or something. The bath thing is prolly the robot dude walking in and he doesn't realize it's an issue because he's a robot and doesn't have junk.

I'm fairly certain it's just a matter of "this is how long it'll take you to clear all character's story modes" and that it isn't claiming to be a single story mode that goes on for that long, broken up by the occasional fight (which would just make it Little Busters: Persona Edition).

I think my biggest problem with Persona 4 (compared with Persona 3, I might bag on the game a bit here but I really did enjoy it a lot) is that the endgame is pretty disappointing. I mean, after a certain point it basically turns into this:

Cartoon Network Scooby-Doo Masks Bumper #2youtube thumb


Add onto that the utter bullshit that is getting the Good and True endings (you have to behave like a gibbering idiot, I have no idea how they expected anybody to get it without a guide or a lot of trial and error) and the last ten hours of the game really left me cold. Unlike Persona 3, which had one of the most engaging endgames of any game I've ever played.
