WE'RE BEARLY GETTING STARTED SHO BEARKLE YOUR SHOLTBELTS AS WE PREBEAR TO UNSHO-EATHE AN UNBEARABLE BEARRAGE OF ETERNALALLY PUN-ISHING PUNS!
Now I can't stop thinking of her as a girl who's been so used to being alone that she would believe colleagues are trying to murder her than actually just inviting her over for fun and that's depressing.
But I'm sure it's just because it hits close to home for some of us.
To be honest I don't think Atlus really give a fuck about the characters anymore, they're stereotypes nothing more. All of their character development effectively ended the second they left their respective dungens, and in 4 sequels so far they haven't had any more development.
I still feel violated.
>no dual languages for story mode (Not really a dubhater, just that I liked listening to the original Jap VA for a change. Besides, half the characters sound unrecognizable thanks to recasting)
I feel like a idiot for wanting to buy P4U
sho is ikutsuki's adopted son, he summons a big fire demon guy to destroy the world, yu and adachi do a fusion spell to beat it, and then sho reforms and gets a wild card. he's the protagonist of perosna 5.
MC comes back and inhabits Sho's body
He fuses his persona with Ikutsuki's persona (Ikutsuki gets a persona) to kill the final boss
Ken dies for Mitsuru
That still won't erase the hole in my heart for MC
Seriously? Seriously? Aaah! Seriously? Aaah! Aaah! Aaah! Seriously?
But that's different, she has the voice of an angel. An angel with a mildly annoying and at the same time cute accent
I think that's going a bit too harsh here. Something that I appreciated about P4 is that the problems the characters face, including the odd ones like the detective, the idol, and the shadow, are really far more down-to-earth problems. Problems with identity and feeling right with your place in the world. These are issues they address but do not solve, because these aren't problems you just have some miraculous encounter that completely changes your way of thinking, it's something you adapt to slowly over time.
I'm not going to say that P4 handled it perfectly. Not even close. And there are some things they could have addressed, but overall I think the way they handled it was pretty good. At this point I don't need characters to go through second or third arcs, especially in smaller games like Arena or adaptations. Just neat little details or stories is fine.
They don't change as people at all though. It's fucking boring.
Yosuke acts exactly the same at the very start of Persona 4 as he does at the very end of Ultimax. There's no journey, the characters just stagnate.
A lot of them are personal, internal problems. How exactly was Yosuke supposed to change to make it believable for you? He starts seeing Inaba in a better light, which is what his problem related to.
How do you feel knowing that you're NTRing the guy who worships you as a kid worships a super hero? He can barely talk to the girl of his dreams without spaghetting all over the place while you're pumping her full of your seed day after day?
Why the shit is your version of that image so low quality? What the fuck did you do?
He starts off in Inaba a goofy dipshit with naive perceptions of justice.
In his social link he starts to realise that there's more to it than that, he starts to realise that he was jelly of Yu for being a perfect mary sue, and he says he wants to be more mature, because he's got to live for Saki.
Then he's back to being a goofy dipshit who wants to kill Nametame without even hearing his side of the story, and has wacky misadventures with watermelon woaawhawowahaoh.
Compare that to Junpei in Persona 3. He starts the game off an asshole jealous of the P3MC and intimidated by the role he needs to play. He sucks in school, he doesn't take things seriously, he thinks it's all kind of fun and games. He relishes the chance to have a special power nobody else has.
Then all that shit with Chidori happens and he realises that he's gotta act mature.
In The Answer, he's the most level-headed character of the group, even Akihiko acts like a hothead compared to him, whereas Junpei just calmly tells everyone to relax. Yosuke and Junpei have pretty much the same character arc, it's just that Junpei's actually sticks.
Of course Ultimax completely undoes that because "MUH ANIMOO STEREOTYPES"
>Kanji stopped dyeing his hair and concentrated on his studies
>Chie got in touch with her feminine side, as well as Naoto as the both don't hide who they are.
> Yukiko has adopted a more mature look and has fully accepted her role as the next head of the inn
>Rise has adapted her Rissette lifestyle in with her normal life.
>Yosuke is more comfortable in his skin and took charge while Yu was away.
>Nanako has become more like her mother and has taken up learning the piano
>Dojima has started being home more and visits adachi regularly
>Adachi enjoys his visits insted of turning him away.
>Marie has a much more friendly disposition and even has a job
> T-the characters do have an arc, look! They added a special cutscene where they're all dressed differently!!!
>Then he's back to being a goofy dipshit who wants to kill Nametame without even hearing his side of the story, and has wacky misadventures with watermelon woaawhawowahaoh.
The problem with Yosuke wasn't that he was a goofy dipshit. That's who he is. His problem was his perception of the world and Inaba specifically. Hew was just sort of angry at the place for being a middle of nowhere place where he had nothing to do but work at his family's place.
And even Yosuke himself admits he fucked up with Namatame, but people take too much out of that scene. Namatame had essentially just killed Nanako, Adachi comes out and says that there's no way they can convict Namatame because none of the evidence would stand up in court, and the guy seemed to be trying to escape with his Shadow effectively showing up to say "yeah I killed people, and I'm going to kill people again, the police can't touch me." This is more like deciding if it's fine to just send the Joker back to Arkham when you know he'll just break out next week and kill some more people. Yeah, it's still wrong and there was more to the story, but if you can't see how that might be tempting, I don't know what to say. And more importantly, he, and everyone else, still manage to calm down and listen to reason.
My point is none of the changes in the social links ever actually have any effect on the characters, and that's the problem when you offload all of your character development to an optional part of the game.
It's really not my fault that they made Kanji the best fucking male character ever who happened to have the mad hots for the best girl in the game too.
I've got to give the D to someone, and it won't let me give the D to Kanji. There's only so much a man can do.
Are you going to really fucking act like their Social links aren't meant to add more depth throughout the year?
That is what they are for dumbass.
Your only argument against it is buzzword ridden tripe so truthfully I'm done talking.
You don't have to like the game but copy pasted buzzwords only work for SJW's and other sheep minded anons.
What's the absolute cheapest way to get P4U2 right now? I can't wait for the American release anymore.
Honestly I would find that more of a problem if I believed there were scenes where their development would have significantly changed the outcome. Take Kanji for example. He decides to be more open about his hobbies and what he likes. But that's not something that's going to change over night. He's not going to come right out of his dungeon and say "All right, gonna start wearing a pink shirt, take the dye out of my hair, get a proper education, stop picking fights, and I'm going to knit a pink alligator for everyone in Inaba." The dungeon was just the start, an acknowledgement of the problem. We see tiny bits of the real Kanji over time, where he's more open about the things he likes but any major and totally unavoidable changes would have been really jarring. It was only a few months. People don't change that fast.
If you can get me an Adachi DLC code somehow that still works I'll gameshare with you for free, I swear. I've also got all the DLC except the characters obviously, if that matters, including famitsu/dangeki.
social links are optional
this is a fact
you can true end the game with only star, fool, and judgement
social links are meant to add more depth to the characters, but they exist separately from the narrative. since the narrative can't assume that you've completed a social link, it has to assume that you didn't complete a social link, or otherwise avoid making reference to the changes that occur over that social link during the narrative. the epilogue is the only real deviance from this - and it's mostly aesthetic changes that won't be present in any spin offs or further works
>He only came with first print physical purchases, right? That's gonna be tough.
Yeah, and I really wanna try him out before I go off to school. Seriously, if you can somehow grab one that's still good I'll give you the account and everything.
What if Atlus makes /pg/ non-canon? I can't die yet. I have more games to play.
But I didn't post any spoilers!
If Sho ends up as the P5 protagonist, he might retain a little of his personality but I imagine a lot of it will still be up to the player. Just expect choices with more puns and maybe a bit more hot-bloodedness.
27-29 show up as existing palettes, I assume because the data for them doesn't exist yet and only placeholders. Similarly to me already unlocking Margaret but not being able to select her since patch data with her actual code isn't out yet.
The game has English dub selectable ingame normally, Japanese apparently love dubs as much as we like undubs/dual audio.
It's the text that's not selectable ingame which I had to force.
As to why it would have english text, because clearly Japanese and English versions of the game are one of the same and Atlus USA pushed the release date by a month (as well as remove Dual Audio) to kill reverse importing (Japanese importing American copies, since it's MUCH cheaper than buying in Japan).
Yes, also be warned as the poster above didn't mention that JP version of the game has english only for audio, no text.
If you have a PS3 with CFW you can pirate it and use my modded files to enable english text though.
>It's the text that's not selectable ingame which I had to force.
so if you get the game and use the custom firmware and your patch. is everything in english then or do you have to toggle it somewhere?
i'm really fucking dumb when it comes to this stuff, sorry. the instructions to install stuff seems simple enough though and it looks like the CFW is reversible, so i think i'll do it.
I really wish we could just get MC as a playable character. No involvement in the story. No dialog needed besides his generic noises.
They want to make money off DLC? They're ignoring the one that would sell.
Very educated guess built in experience and knowing ArcSys history. It's not happening.
>It is impossible to get CFW on a slim PS3 using softmods, right?
CFW is a softmod, there are no hardware mods for PS3.
You just need a PS3 with firmware 3.55 or lower and you're set.
If you're above 3.55 though, you need a special device called E3 Flasher to downgrade your PS3 to 3.55 before you can install CFW on it though.
You can only downgrade PS3s that came out of the box with 3.55 or lower (so all Fats, and most Slims, Super Slim was never 3.55 and as such can't have CFW).
>so if you get the game and use the custom firmware and your patch. is everything in english then
Yes. Nothing else required, installing my modified patch 1.01 will automatically change language to english and unlock all DLC.
>the instructions to install stuff seems simple enough
If you have a PS3 with 3.55 or lower, sure.
Watching Persona 4: The Animation, and know what, it pretty fun and good.
Yeah, I'm talking about P4U2.
I don't see it anywhere in-game. Do I need to do something to unlock it?
I just want the best theme from PS3PSP, damn it
I'm here and I still want to fuck him
>We got a pastebin about this shit?
Nope. You unlock it by beating that characters arcade mode on risky, I only know because I just did it. Have you done any SA courses?
>P4U2 site has the vita logo at the bottom
I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but nothing in the game's files indicates that they were at any point working on a Vita version. Still there's a chance another branch might be doing it separately, who knows. But I wouldn't hold my breath.
>being mad about SHO TIME
I want anti-SHO faggots to leave.
I jope it's not ATLUS trolling data miners. I'm actually really hype about SHO TIME. Every choice of response should have a really shitty pun option.
I like you
Why is Adachi crying, guys?
>music rips straight from the fucking game aren't 320kbps
Are you fucking serious?
You were being too rough with him, anon.
I want Jack to upload them in .at3 like he was going to, I'm a big boy that can convert music on my own.
>You will never see official art of Adachi in the PQ artstyle
The way I see it, there are a few possibilities:
1. Atlus told Arcsys to call him that internally in the game for whatever reason, or they told Arcsys that he's the P5 protag and Arcsys ran with it during development and they were all too retarded to change it before release.
2. Arcsys developers are familiar with Persona and see the "true ending" as setting up Sho for a protagonist role so they just decided to call him that without input from Atlus perhaps as an internal joke (remember the nuts and bolts work for P4U2 was done by Arcsys).
3. Atlus knows all their games get hacked and parsed and so decided to insert that into their game either as a ruse or to give a little hint to their hardcore fans (the type of fans who would be pouring over game files).
1 seems the least likely to me. I just don't see why Atlus would up and decide to call him that for no apparent reason. 2 is quite possible I think. 3 is a maybe, but I don't think Atlus has done any jokes like that ever or for a long time.
>I want Jack to upload them in .at3 like he was going to, I'm a big boy that can convert music on my own.
could you reupload them in 320kbps/flac, or would I have to?
Also, do you have more complete images of Adachi like that, and could you post them? I've only got a few.
Do you want all of the new songs in .at3? I could probably do it thanks to the other rip having the file names.
> it's extremely likely that details were shared with Arcsys
There's no reason for them to share anything about P5 with Arcsys. Arcsys isn't helping Atlus with P5. Keep in mind just how tight lipped Atlus can be about their games.
They are in 160kbit AT3s, that's very compressed and equivalent of about 192kbit MP3. There is absolutely 0 reason to waste space by converting them to 320. I went overboard already by making them V0, should've gone with V1 really. It's like you guys know nothing about audio. You might as well convert youtube ripped music to FLAC and think it's suddenly lossless.
I don't think we knew what kbps they originally were and just assumed because they were in the game that they'd be 320kbps.
Sorry, didn't mean to frustrate you.
>tfw it hasn't even been announced
Wait, you're telling me there's stinky smelly BOYS in /pg/? Ewww!
>yfw P5 ends with
Sho creating a group to fight P4 cast
I wish Atlus was once again bold enough to do that sort of stuff. Gay/tranny NPCs are fine and all, but I want the protagonist to bang one of them.
W-what? Are you telling me for all these years I've been talking to men!?
3 is completely bonkers and unrealistic, so you can discredit that option at once.
2 is a possibility, but there's too much evidence pointing towards 1.
Besides I can tell you here and now that changing existing code calls from P5HERO into "SHO" in an already finished/near finished game is a hell. In fact going back and changing any early code when you're late into development is insane so it's natural they'd leave it at internal codename without messing with it in fear of breaking the code.
Also one more thing about audio, AT3 doesn't even support bitrates higher than 132kbps in case you're interested. AT3+ can go pretty high though.
I mean - just watch it. More like trailer for neonoir phyhological thriller, then one-more-hurr-durr-friendship-happy-shit.
Please tell me Yukari hits on Naoto in P4AU.
That's why so many people were excited. This Sho thing just broke everything for a lot of people. Even with themes and tones changes, if Sho is really the protagonist, a lot of people will hate it.
Calling Hashino a hack can never be reiterated enough.
That doesn't necessarily tell us much. It may mean that from a gameplay standpoint it's similar. Use of the calendar system and social links, even if one or both of those are heavily modified.
She has an ending with both Aigis and Mitsuru. She's full blown gay now.
Maybe once you've had MC, you just can't go back to other guys.
>tfw it's the day I move out and I'll have no internet for a few days
So I know nothing about the design process at Atlus, but wouldn't they have a name for the main character in one of their most anticipated games by the time ArcSys started developing P4AU?
She was already ruined
Sounds good. They could start the episode directly after the end of episode six's events and finish up from there.
Ain't saying anything bad about Da Man or Vic Rigatoni.
Here, have Mitsuru's VA
Fuck, I thought I had at least one pic of her cosplaying as Mitsuru. Here, have some Nugu
Sorry amigo. Just imagine she screams "BRILLIANTO" when you give her the pleasure of being filled
In P5 everyone will wear catsuits. Including the guys. Especially the guys.
The women are always screaming.
Do we know how long it's gonna be? 20 minutes, more?
Shit's gonna be gay
>twenty minutes of intense yu/adachi homolust
????????????Another End Episode?Thank you Mr. Accomplice???????!12?10?(?)??Blu-ray&DVD4?????!
This means that Adachi accomplice ending is the Another End episode, so only 14 episodes after all.
Also we're gonna have to wait until 10th of December for it, it seems.
Unless they will air it earlier.
Tomokazu motherfucking Sugita in the latest episode of Persona Stalker Club, a collaboration with Bururaji (BlazBlue Radio).
He dressed up as Yukiko, i have no words.
These events are always atrocious; they pander hard to whoever is watching. I watched a stream with Adachi's seiyuu playing P4U, and him and the other seiyuu who was there (HanaKana and someone else, can't remember) kept making lewd jokes when he was up against Brotag.
But at least they're not idolshit events. They're even worse, the girls are literally all over each other.
>Rise's persona has a fucking camel toe in Arena 2
He is a huge fan of Shin Megami Tensei and a bit lesser so of Persona.
He was so excited to be voicing Daisuke in P4.
I hope he has a larger role in P5. He is one of the most noteworthy male seiyuu after all.
>Adachi no longer in the series
>no one cares, zero discussion, dead /a/ thread even
>more Adachi announced
>everyone picks it back up
And you can get the game's PKG straight from Sony's servers:
Just install that, then install my PKG.
If you have PS3 with CFW you can use my modded patch 1.01 which unlocks all DLC and changes language to english.
It's just as embarrassing as male seiyuu going on about yanking nipples, if not more so. You can practically see the yen signs in the idol's eyes when they're acting all touchy-feely with each other, it's horrible.
Idolshits are literally the worst.
Well shit, my P5 hype penis just went flaccid.
Here I was thinking it'd have the same appeal of P3 and P4 where you play a blank slate and make it your own story.
Guess I'll go kill myself now.
Well I'd look at it like this. In P3P Vincent had his name similarly in the data even though in-game he was only referred to as Man Drinking Alone. I really doubt it's them attempting to troll.
>and him and the other seiyuu who was there (HanaKana and someone else, can't remember) kept making lewd jokes when he was up against Brotag.
Tell me more about it. What kind of jokes?
I don't have the image here but it's pretty much the only translated interview about it available so far. Maybe I'm remembering it wrong but I do think they said something about the lines of "something players can relate to" or whatever
Maybe he's talking about this?
I know it's been confirmed that the character models will be in full scale like in Catherine.
great to hear this.
im really getting hyped and ive only just started xillia 2.
if i remember correctly, in the first arena, the story mode is separated for each character,
so, im guessing its the same menu and mechanics, with true ending unlocking after playing all of the firsy games story?

It's all cool.
When you search something and get a load of results, there should be a Buyee banner at the top. Towards the left there's a box that says 'overseas buyers click here'.
This looks like a dream-job, if only I had the talent
>5A non-CH corner starter, uses 50 meter that you build during the combo
I-is there any chance you can account share that Adachi DLC? I'll give you my account in exchange, I just want it for a few days, p-please.
want me to post the fucking chie copy pasta instead?
Speaking of collaborations, there's a P4U2 x Lawson one going on at the moment where you can buy straps and shit.
Would anyone happen to have a link to where they can be bought? Tried looking on the Lawson site earlier and couldn't find anything besides general collaboration pages.
Also holy shit, this ring looks good.
What the hell is this, a coaster? Who pays that much to put your glass on Adachi's face?
>not going broke buying every last bit of merch with your husbando on it
Step it up, anon.
Soejima himself drew the chie on the chalkboard for the latest ep.
>Adachi form the P4 Anime
Why? He looks like shit.
That's not really a fair comparison. They live in Japan and have plenty of access to merch us filthy gaijins don't (like that cloth and most of the straps; Movic doesn't ship overseas).
The real question is, who's desperate enough to buy Adachi coasters and nail clippers?
Lack of a lot of other merch probably.
Naoto, Kanji, Iggie and Mags
Naoto's going to take some getting used too but it's not terrible. Kanji was eh at first but he grows on you fast and is pretty great. Hell, I think the real reason Baker decided to not return was because he wanted to throw Mercer a bone.
Remember to bring ear plugs for new Igor and Maggie
It's like he's a different character in every frame.
Good point. Maybe Atlus' plan is to release information slowly that will cause the dissenters among us to kill themselves. Then all they will have left are the masses, the chosen ones, who will inherit Persona 5 as it truly is.
I know that, I just like to pretend he hasn't become a greedy forgetful dick
