I'm already 99 with 99 Yoshi + Izanami , only grinding i'm doing now is irl.
gotta get dat moneyyyyyyyyyyy
This is my third playthrough (deleted my first like a retard) and i've used a diff team each time and it still hasn't popped. Guess i'm gonna have to hope it pops when my brother plays.
............ Each time in a game , I thought it carried over into new game plus because people have reported it popping very early for them.
Should I go back and level all my other members to max level in the hopes that I finally get it?
No, you don't have to max everyone, just battle Shadows with them and hope for maybe status effects and shit to inflict them, maybe get them to die, etc etc etc just to spawn Rise lines (every character has unique lines after all)
AFAIK Rise lines don't actually carry over to playthroughs. It took me 4 playthroughs to get it, which convinced me that it's not carried over to NG+ at all.
>Get Purseowner 4 for PS2 because hear The Golden has Marie in it, mistakenly believe she's forced
>Get to Adachi's dungeon
Is The Golden worth checking out? I don't really like replaying games, but I never finished it and it has extra content, right? Is it worth it?
there are several new major scenes and a whole new mechanic of going out at night (not only for fishing or working) and meeting people so even the boring days will feel different when you get to use your free time
The space between the beginning up to after you beat Chie's shadow will feel like a chore, but the game also has a fast forward button you can use on scenes you've already seen.
and a lot of the new content is extra stuff of the Investigation Team hanging out together spread throughout the year, into getting their bike licenses and taking trips into the city.
and there's a whole bunch of different costumes you can get to wear in dungeons to add a bit of novelty to everything,
WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH YOU, /PG/
Hardcore Risette Fan is the only one im missing after 2 playthroughs.
Rise is my waifu forever and always, and this will always be my biggest shame.
I just cant bring myself to playthrough again, without the NG+, without doing her slink, and without using my usual team of Chie, Yukiko, and Naoto.
If you raise her slink too high her initial lines when entering battle will get halved, and if you dont somehow suck at P4 you'll miss a ton of status effect lines, among others.
and of course the rotating party member stuff.
Im sure she isnt mad though.
Well, reading the end of the last thread, I would say a lot of shitposting. If not intentional, just a lot of "Stop liking what I don't like."
Things will probably slow down some more as we don't have any news and won't get some for a while.
So, this is your fetish?
Because nobody likes it. I'm serious.
Hell, yesterday I was watching TotalBiscuit's podcast, which was sponsored by Crunchyroll, and the first thing he says about it was "Just don't watch the Persona 4 Golden Anime. You'd think 'Oh, it'll be a nice little retelling...' Nope!"
Golden anime was even worse than the original one, with the exception of the Xmas episode.
and maybe the Beach episode because of Yukiko's ponytail, and Marie's bikini.
Don't listen to them, you need to watch the Golden anime for its excellency especially in QUALITY animation.
>There is even more QUALITY than P4A
This is one point I will contest, just because the original was so full of QUALITY. To me, P4GA was just your typical low-budget looking anime. Though I'd much rather watch the original.
I wonder how much of that was just fanboys who would buy anything.
>>95156880 beat me too it.
You cant just throw the word QUALITY around to fit in.
Golden just looks rushed, and handed off to some B-team to shit out for a quick buck.
The original was serious QUALITY in parts though.
Dude Golden looks like shit everytime they're not closing up on Marie's face. Original had the budget of a 3min ad and they still manage to be okay and by the time the bluray launched they fixed most of the QUALITY problems. Golden never bothered to fix shit.
One thing about the Golden Animation, too, was the Yu and Adachi fight.
Virtually no goddamn banter. Adachi was talking shit and Yu simply shouted "SHUT UP, MUH BONDS!".
And Yu one-shot Ameno-sagiri.
Yeah, don't watch it.
QUALITY isn't just "looks bad." As I said, Golden looks like your typical low-quality, low-budget anime handed off to some studio. No one is saying "Oh my, it looks so good," just that QUALITY is reserved for more severe "Who the hell let this pass?" type deals.
I did. Sorry.
>original had significant animation errors, on top of just looking way worse.
Original had more quality (like double chie, phantom food, yukiko's monster arm etcetera) i'll give you that, but looking worse? Hell no. The art style for golden is awful, the guy can't draw mouths for shit and the body proportions are all fucked up. Original anime still had some really good shots (specially of Yu) while Golden... eh...
>QUALITY is reserved for more severe "Who the hell let this pass?" type deals.
Golden also had plenty, you just have to look. But of course that means i'd have to rewatch golden so i won't.
Art style in Golden animation is complete shit.
I just got P4G, and from looking around online, apparently there are specific answers you can give on specific dates for social link and raising your skill ranks and whatever.
Does it make a big difference if you bother with all this on a first playthrough? Because I don't really want to use a walkthrough, but I like playing rpg's optimally, and don't want to complete the game with shitty characters because I ignored all the above.
It just saves a bit of time making the rank advance faster. P4 is not on a crazy agenda like P3 so you can goof around a little and still finish the links without problems. Never played golden but if i remember correctly it add even more days and opportunities of gaining more SL points
It barely matters.
Just do the links when you want, and who you want.
Make sure to max at least a couple of them, because then you can fuse some stronger stuff near the end game.
Golden is super forgiving, even more than vanilla. Following a guide first time through will take out what little magic is left.
The only thing I liked about the golden animation was Marie's all out attack cut in with everyone else during the quiz show. The xmas episode was funny but dumb. Sense when is Naoto that retarded?
For Mars and Jupiter
>Golden was still selling ok in Japan
And now Yu is 4th in the P4G poll, when he always was in top and with three times more votes than anyone else.
Anons will say the problem with P4GA is too much Marie. But don't let their Marie hatred kid you, the problem is not too much Marie. Is a shitty Yu who apart from being shitty cares too much about Marie.
I really just want more complexity. A hard mode with better AI or more traditional fusion as opposed to higher HP and lower exp would be great too. Persona 4 especially wasn't that engaging. Figuring out what your teammates were going to do added a little bit more complexity in P3 even if it was annoying sometimes.
give the boss's better AI and bigger movelists. They should be able to compensate for their weaknesses and take advantage of yours.
Bring back the fusion raids from P2
They already did it in P4G but giving your party members a unique endgame skill each is really good and they should keep that in.
make gun a separate kind of phys element
make ailments just as useful as buff/debuffs
I can see where you're coming from, but I don't really want to see AI teammates again. I feel like it just becomes a drag during the dungeon exploration. On bosses it's one thing, but for throwaway trash mobs? Not really all that fun and just feels like a waste of time.
But then all the snark will be gone for the people who have played P1.
>3 phys attack types
>1 gun attack type
>Make ailments that aren't debuffs useful again, im looking at you 30 damage poison
>Make the combat more dynamic with more combined attacks (ie fusion raids,follow-ups), faster and more visceral(atleast this last one seem to be going well)
Needless to say I also want dungeons that aren't just corridors and doors and eventual dead ends
Guns will likely get skills of their own like needle shot and shit like that
I loved using guns in smt
Man I won't do that shit again, specially because I already know the plot for this shit since years ago
Atleast with tartarus you could shut down your brain for 30 levels and I did it on a blind run
>Needless to say I also want dungeons that aren't just corridors and doors and eventual dead ends
For me this is the biggest weakness of previous Personas,hopefully P5 will fix it
finish it properly
son of man.
I know I should have gotten a guide
But I wasn't that determined to get the true ending to begin with
One thing that i hate about P4 is the Margaret shit.
In P3Fes when i completed the game it was very easy to do the NG+/get all personas that i wanted and fight Elizabeth.In P4 you come back to be level 1 again in the NG+ and has to complete the entire game again to fight margaret,i really wanted to fight her but i'll not play the entire game again.
I guess I will do a true ending run when P5 gets closer to release, maybe even a marathon in the final days
But not right now
yes that is also a huge factor
>he crazy guy who was going through every past dungeon before tackling the next one
>The P4 fanbase thinks this is a 'crazy' feat
I do honestly hope P5 is 99% VN though. Cut the BS
You do realize you have some kind of mental disorder, right? I mean, have you ever asked for therapy?
I was not having pleasure mate
It was all strict painful business
>tfw doing yukiko's castle in lvl 75
I believe what he's saying is say he just unlocked Rise's dungeon. He'll re-do Yukiko's castle and Kanji's dungeon again before doing it. Then when they get to Mitsuo, he'd redo all of the above plus Rise's dungeon.
Because he is fucking insane.
And you were complaining that you were sick of the dungeons, right?
Just what the shit?
No, here's the thing. Say you got to Heaven. You wanted to complete the bonus boss in Naoto's dungeon. You can run back and complete Naoto's dungeon, run through it fast and kill the boss. He would, on top of that, also do Yukiko's Castle, Kanji's Sauna, Rise's Strip Club, and Mitsuo's Game on top of that.
Good luck trying to put this on the head of P3 waifufags.
The only good links are Mutatsu, Akinari and to a certain extension Mamoru/Hidetoshi
>Chihiro's is boring if you're not into shy girls that stutter
She's boring if you're into too because THATS ALL SHE DOES FOR 10 FUCKING RANKS
> who has the guts of telling an orphan he is too rich too understand him and his dead daddy issues.
oh my specshul snowflake MC
Mamoru is also an orphan and poor and has to take care of bazillion brothers and he doesnt have magic protagonist powers to make his life better and live in a cool dorm full of hot bitches
MC should just shut his whore mouth and listen
Those cats and dogs were heart pounding moments dude.I thought that cat was gone forever and the dogs? Forget it man I didn't know how they managed to escape that I thought it was the end of the line.
>Look MC now we have a month left you can hang around with me while I rehash my emo robot talk from November.
>Look old woman
>look dead cat
>Look old woman
>Look MC I now want to fuck you, this means I became human bean.
>Fuck my neck pls.
She could have at least talk about how she fucked his life sealing shit in him, or the time she tried to shot his face if she wanted to be emo. It was a pretty pointless S.Link with the same stuff she already supposedly got over of and dead cats. Not a wonder it was added in a remake.
>Forget to save for 3 hours
>It hits Yu
>MC should just shut his whore mouth and listen
Did MC kill your dog?
What I'm saying it's that Mamory and other many S.Links are the ones who try to come off as a special snowflake while the guy they are talking to had it as bad (or much worse in cases like the Keisuke bitch.)
The problem was actually that MC just shut his whore mouth and listened. He could have talk as their equal, but instead he was made a privileged kid who listened to a poor sufferers talk.
Yukari's S.Link was shit, but at least she acknowledged she wasn't the only one who dead daddies.
I had a dream once that Rise and Fuuka married
I wish PQ had the opption of pairing people, because I want Rise to marry Fuuka. they are too perfect for each other, and I know Rise likes Yu but she needs to find a better girl like Fuuka
The persona 3 protagonist is kinda shitty in the movies. In movie 2 he completely stops fighting a shadow just because he thinks that without the dark hour he's worthless and he'll be back to being the loner again. This causes the fight to drag on which causes the rest of the party to be too late to go to Shinji and Ken before Takaya shoots Shinji and kills him and from what it looks like in movie 3 he tries to take on the final shadow by himself because SEES won't talk to him nor to each other because of Mitsuru's depression at her dad's death. Even if Yu was scared of being alone after the case was solved with Mitsuo at least he didn't give up during the fight and cause someone to die as a result. Makato's a shit.
I keep hearing that the FeMC route in P3P is meaningfully better than male MC.
Given that I played P3 FES ages ago, do you think that's true? I want to play P3P soon, and I'll play FeMC if she really is that different/that much better, but I also really want to hear Mass Destruction a whole lot.
The persona 3 protagonist is kinda shitty in the movies because he cares too much about Aigis while no other iteration of him does.
He uses "ore" while MC uses "boku" in PQ, so he is not canon anyway.
