You have 10 SECONDS to tell my why you haven't played Persona 5 yet???
Waiting for atlus to slowly port their games
>>446436727I did and I fucked my doctor
>>446437010This. Also, I haven't bought a PS4. I've been thinking of buying one but I'm still on the fence.
>>446436727Because I don’t own a PS4 and my computer isn’t fast enough to emulate it.Waiting for a switch/pc port if anything.
I fucking love Takemi's theme, started playing in my head when I looked at OP's pic. This and Iwai's are so perfect.
>>446436727I’m playing it, just got to Makoto’s persona
>>446436727I don't like jrpgs
>>446436727contradicting themes and plot on top of anime bullshit is a turn offplus the cute loli is a smelly neet
>>446436727>It has been 3 years since JP launchTime sure flies
Cuz i'm an smtfag. I find the dating sim/ social link shit to be tiresome after playing persona 3. The combat is also objectively inferior.
>>446436727I have, but I gave up after the first segment of the fast food dungeon
>>446436727>You have 10 SECONDS to tell my why you haven't played Persona 5 yet???Why would I? Its gameplay is more primitive than turn-based rpgs made a quarter of a century ago.
>>446436727>You have 10 SECONDS to tell my why you haven't played Persona 5 yet???>played Persona 5>play>a 'game' which literally consists of at least 43 hours of cutscenesI don't think 'playing' is the word you're looking for.
>>446436727>90 hours long
>>446436727I disliked Persona 3 and 4.
>>446438048It took me ~135 for the platinum.
No PS4 yet and I can't emulate it. Waiting for confirmation on wether or not a Switch port will happen because it'd kinda suck if I bought a PS4 for this game only for it to end up on switch
>all these pctards cryingIncredible
>>446437884I love how this doesn't even say why anything on the JRPG side is bad, or how there's blatant lies about both sides to make WRPGs seem better.
Longform RPGs are not my bag at all. I really like the setting, art style, character designs, music, UI, etc. but I can't imagine that I'd be engaged for 75-80% of the playthrough.If P5 Arena is coming or one of those various mysterious projects ends up being an action game with the P5 cast/world/music, then I'm down. I'll try Joker out in Smash too, even though he'll probably too fast and floaty for my liking, because I can imagine his Persona mechanics will be fun.
>>4464367271. I don't really care for Persona, I'm a SMTfag2. I don't own a system with a Persona game on it (due to not caring about Persona)If I could get it on sale for like 20 bucks or something on steam maybe.
I don't wanna turn on my ps4
>>446436727i just haven't
>>446436727I did. I can't wait for P5R to come out so I can play it again and date best girl Kawakami again
I did. It's another example of how all you need is good presentation and you'll trick a bunch of people into ignoring 120 hours of mediocre gameplay and shit writing.
>>446438797>I have no retort so I'll say SEETHINGEvery time. Thanks for giving up before it got embarrassing.
>>446436727I don't own a PS3 OR PS4 and my PC isn't powerful enough to handle RPCS3Doesn't help I don't have patience for JRPGS
Put 72 hours into it PS4 died and lost the save file
>>446438553>I love how this doesn't even say why anything on the JRPG side is badWhy would it? It's an objective comparison of both styles of rpgs.>or how there's blatant lies about both sides to make WRPGs seem better.What are those blatant lies?
You have 10 SECONDS to tell me why I should play it.
I'm a PCfag. I'll wait for a PC release. Also, there are weaker Persona ripoffs I can play to waste time till then
>>446439328>Why would it? It's an objective comparison of both styles of rpgs.It's a biased view, but I'm not here to convince you>What are those blatant lies?Every "tell me why JRPGs are good" post on /v/ is literally just a shitpost, so you won't get any more (you)s from me
>>446439697So you have nothing to say for yourself. Duly noted, fucking weeb
>>446439550And you failed me.
>>446439884>Didn't say anything to begin withShouldn't throw stones inside that glass house, anon.
I couldn't run it on rpcs3
>>446439697>It's a biased view, but I'm not here to convince youSo first your complain about that image was that it "doesn't even say why anything on the JRPG side is bad", and now you're complaining about it being biased? Which is it?>Every "tell me why JRPGs are good" post on /v/ is literally just a shitpost, so you won't get any more (you)s from meI'm not asking you to do that, I'm just asking you to mention those 'blatant lies' you accused the image of.
>>446440074The comparison is direct and fair. If you say it's not, YOU have to prove it, not me, you wasted mongoloid
Was about to order it since i got a ps4 finally, but then i remembered they'll probably come with a new version of P5 at some point so i might as well wait for that.
>>446440271>>446440351>This shitposting image is completely balanced and fairNot even that guy but ya'll are retarded
>>446440919Right. Sure. Go play your anime tits crapfest then, you filthy neckbeard wanker
I need to finish the other ones first.
>>446441521>Doesn't even deny that the pic was a shitpost
>>446438797Not him but I would rather have naming conventions that directly indicate the level of a spell than attempts at creative names that don't when playing a video game.
Is there any downside of punishment for dating every girl?I think P3 had some slinks reverse if they saw you with another girl but P4 didn't care so I'm not sure how this one handles it
>>446436727I did. It was my 2017 GOTY. It's in my top 5 best video games ever. I fucking loved almost every aspect of it.
>>446436727I stopped after the first castle to replay Persona 3. Should I go back and finish it?
>>446436727Waiting for the actual final version of it
Do Switchtoddlers unironically believe they'll get a port of a 2yo Playstation exclusive even when P5R just got announced and it's also a Playstation exclusive?
>>446443080It's like P4. They did care by the way but you usually get a reverse S link rather than a broken S link unless you handle the situation really poorly. Then again P3 was horrible handing out revers and broken S links like candy.
>>446436727I stopped playing after I beat the 5th or 6th palace(the one after futabas) in two days. Doing nothing but social links for two weeks is fucking boring.
>>446436727The dungeons are actually really underwhelming, and the stealth segments aren't truly stealth since all you need to do is be hiding behind something to get past enemies, but all in all it's a great game and I just beat it last week. >Kawakami is the best girlfriend
Because I hate JRPGs
>>446444223>you usually get a reverse S link rather than a broken S linkI've never even heard of 'broken' slinks, what does that even mean, that it's gone forever and you can't continue it for the rest of the playthrough? All I ever got in was a reversed, didn't know there was a step beyond, but maybe I just never fucked up that much.Also I don't remember P4 having reversed slinks and I've beaten that game like eight times while dating everyone. Maybe that was added in P4G which I never played but I'm pretty sure it wasn't in the original.
>>446436727>buying a nogamesstation
>>446436727I already bought it for my PS3, but I don't want to start it until I beat the previous games. Almkst finished Persona 3
>>446437105I want to do unholy things to her and with her.
I finished it for the first time a couple days ago actually. Was amazing.Tempted to buy P5 Dancing but it's pricey as hell.
>>446445539Broken S links are specifically for when your girlfriend catches you cheating red handed and they refuse to talk to you for weeks and if you don't pick the right words to apologize when the decide to hear you out they ignore you again for weeks. True I don't think I got a broken S link in P4 but I did get a reverse S link when I came out and admitted I cheated with Yukiko like an idiot.
>>446437589I wouldn't say the combat is objectively inferior. Persona's combat feels more tuned around draining you of your SP while the encounters themselves are pretty easy, which is more appropriate for Persona as it feels like the punishment for playing poorly is that it takes you more days to clear a dungeon which I would consider a much better form of failure for Persona as it lets people who are bad get through at their own pace without leaving them frustrated with the game because they can't get through, while also rewarding players who are better able to get through while conserving their SP or getting through the ends of the dungeon with low SP by giving them more time for stuff in the real world section of the game. If you just stuck the combat of IV:A, or some other SMT, right into Persona it woulnd't be a good fit because each encounter is more difficult and it's also generally easier to conserve SP. My only problems with the combat in P5 are that the items you can get from Tae make SP too plentiful as the game goes on and the boss fights are too easy, I wouldn't mind their difficulty if you had to fight them once you got to the end of the dungeon, but seeing as the game ensures that you'll always enter a boss fight with full health and resources, the bosses themselves should be harder to compensate. I also think, even though I do think that Persona and SMT having different combat systems is generally a good thing, Smirking would have been good in P5, it's just a good mechanic, at least in IV:A, and it would have suited the personality of P5.
>>446436727The only Sony game devices I own are a PS2 and a PSP
>>446443642If you want to.
I'm trying to finish it so I can move on to Tales of Berseria. I don't like the casino level though.
>>446445936Oh, maybe I never got that because I always made sure to max out a girl's slink before I started dating the next one. Someone must've warned me all those years ago and I forgot
>>446436727But I have desu
>>446437105I don't know how Atlus made a character that caters to my exact type but I'm disappointed I'll never meet a woman like her irl
>>446443642just keep playing p3 desu p5 is a waste of time
I have on PC but I got bored of it after an hour.
>>446436727Lack of PS4
>>446436727I have it was a waste of time and I played more 4 after.
>>446436727it's not on pc
>>446446157>Persona's combat feels more tuned around draining you of your SPBut it never does.
I beat it like 3 times in the month it came out. I romanced Tae on my first playthrough, Hifumi on my second and Haru on my third. It was worth it.
>>446447162It does in the early game. The balance just gets worse as you go on because P3-5 each have some option to easily replenish your SP that you can get access to.
>>446436727I did. The only mainline Persona game I never bothered to play again.
>>446447356>It does in the early gameThen it's not designed around it. Also no it doesn't, physical attacks work for the early game and trash mobs.
>>446447257i dont know how you people do ittook me like 3 damn months to beat it just 1 time
>>446436727I did and I had a great time with my mommy gf Kawacummy
>>446436727Because every persona after 3 doesn't know when to end their story
>>446437105Daily Reminder that Makoto only deserves to get MAFIA’D
too busy drawing
>>446436727My reason? I have a backlog of 40+ games most bought this year. I also have not been on my ps4 in months.
>>446436727I wanna buy it used, but no gamestop near me has it.
>>446437010Well all I have to say is one thing when will they port the other series games to ps4? IT would make them a ton of money.
I tried playing persona 3 but unfortunately it sucked ass and was boring as fuck
>>446437342I don't like JRPGs either anon. Listen to me, Persona 5 is different. The dungeons aren't shitty randomly generated corridors, the story and setting are awesome and not the usual fantasy thing, and the soundtrack is lit as hell. Do yourself a favour and play this game
>>446448323OK but what does this have to do with Persona 5?
Because Makoto is such a piece of shit character and the game got to such a low point of enjoyement all at the same time that I just started playing TTYD.
>>446436727When it comes to switch
>>446436727I watched a playthrough on twitch why should I bother playing it now?
>>446448052When you say this year do you mean 2019?Dude, it's not even halfway through January.
>>446447583Just because physical attacks work doesn't mean the game isn't trying to drain you of SP. You're still going to be losing it form using physical attacks that cost HP and if you don't use the skills you have and just use your basic attacks then you're going to lose HP which you will have to use SP to fix. You're going to be gradually losing SP no matter how you approach it and each dungeon feels like it's made with your base amount of SP in mind. The SP recovery in the three games is also expensive enough for it to feel like it's something of a lot of value. The issue is just that, even with them being expensive, they're still easy enough to get and very rewarding, which I would call an issue with the game's balance not the game deliberately not being designed with SP conservation in mind. If the game wasn't designed around that I don't think they would put so much value on SP recovery, I don't think they would reward you with more time for completing a dungeon in one day and I don't think the only thing that can be a real obstacle form keeping you from progressing through the dungeon would be the amount of SP you have left.
>>446437884Man, you made me remember how fucking boring Divinity was. I don't even know why it was popular in the first place
>>446448382>the story and setting are awesomeNot trueBut the Dungeons are pretty good and the snappy, stylish UI and aesthetic make the turn-based combat go down more smoothly if it's not normally your thing
>>446448846>"wah wah the game has mp/sp managment waaahh"This your first rpg anon ?
i did play persona 5, over 300 hours of itmediocre at best and RIDDLED with flaws and shit decisions
Because I cannot romance best girl.
The gameplay is just not good enough to carry through a 120 hour game. This is a problem with many JRPGs but Persona 5 takes an extra step to drag it on longer than it needs to be.
Have you ever done a playthrough where you only romance one girl, or do you always go full harem mode
I stopped playing it for some reason. I think I was getting burnt out worrying about micro managing everything to make sure I didn't fuck myself over and miss something important like certain confidant ranks and what not. I should try getting back into it again though since I already came so far
>>446436727Any time I've tried a persona game I end up just wishing I was playing something like Nocturne or DDS again. The calender stuff is real annoying to me.
>>446449084>plays game for over 300 hours>calls it shitlol
>>446449320I frienzone all of them desu.
impatience, feel like im just slogging through chores and i hate feeling like my playthrough is exactly the same as yours for 99% of the game
>>446448743I meant last year 2018
>>446449242>short hair saeMUH FUGGIN DICCCC
>>446448743Then again I bought some 4.00 games on the playstation website too. today.
Shitty story, badly written characters
when is 1 2 3 4 being ported?
>>446436727I have. I put in 50 fucking hours before giving up when I realized I only actually enjoyed maybe 10 of them
>>446436727I'm not a fag
because I have no idea how to make this run at a stable 30(or 60). I know my shit is old as fuck, but I figured it would be good enough to 30fps.
>>446436727I'm waiting for the Souljagame port
>>446449559i like to see every facet a game has to offer me before i form a full opinion
>>446449456I can appreciate why someone might not like the calendar system, and it does have come obvious flaws, but I like just having something different. There are plenty of games with a straightforward structure like what you see in Nocturne and DDS, particularly DDS, but something like the calendar system isn't as common. If you haven't played it yet and you're interested, Devil Survivor has something similar to the calendar system, but it doesn't carry along the pacing issues that the calendar system has. It doesn't have all the strengths of the calendar system either, but I still think it might be something that can feel like a more palatable version of the calendar.
>>446436727>>446437105>>446445796I want to choke and missionary fuck Takemi untill my balls are out of semen.
>>446436727I dont like 99% of turn based rpgs and I have a limited vidya budget so I can go around buying every vidya that releases.
>>446436727i already watched the anime anonunless youre one of those faggots that say "b-but its different" or "but what about the gaming experience??!?"
>>446450246How can she be a nurse using those prostitute high heels? What if bodily fluids fall on her feet?
Who did you spend your Christmas with?
>>446450172>play a game for a while until you get fed up with it"You didn't even play it that long, you can't judge it">play a game long enough so you can see everything and judge it accordingly"Gee, if you hated it that much why did you play it for so long"You can't win anon.
>>446436727Because you don't "play" visual novels.If I wanted to read a manga, I'd go read a manga.
>>446450492i know anoni know. its even worse with games like disgaea where the first 60 hours is the tutorial
I played up until the middle of the boat palace then lost all interest. Kawakami best girl
>>446450206I get why people may enjoy the calendar but for me it just feels tedious since I honestly don't enjoy most of the slink stuff and would rather just be in a dungeon. Maybe some day I'll push myself through one of tgem but spending 80-100 hours on one of these seems impossible at the moment.Devil Survivor has always been one I'm cautious about trying. The srpg stuff does look fun but I really dislike Yasuda's art and the characters seem annoying. I haven't got around to it yet but I'm really excited to try Majin Tensei II, it serms to be more like what I would want out of a srpg megaten.
>>446436727I will play the definitive version coming out for the switch.THANKS FOR BETA TESTING PS4 KUKS
>>446436727waiting for it to drop to twenty bucks or get ported to switch. I'd prefer it portable like I do all jrpgs, but if its cheap enough I'll definitely get it for ps4
I do not own a PS3/4 and because a PC port is unlikely because Atlus and their corporate masters think PC isn't worth it as a platform.
>>446436727Because i saw the whole game on youtube when i didn't have a ps4 and now that i have one i don't want the game.
>>446436727i played it on release and i enjoyed every second, i kinda feel bad for the people who didnt ... kinda
>>4464367274 was way worse than 3 so if I extrapolate then 5 must be way worse than 4.
>>446436727I don't buy Snoy consoles since gen 6.
>>446436727Can't wait to go back to it to see Takemi's beautiful size 7 feet.
>>446436727Bought a ps4 for it. Finished it and sold it the ps4. Then downloaded it on my PC and finished it again.
Can't romance Sae
>>446436727>>446437010Waiting for a Steam release.
>>446436727What are the canon ages of the older girls like Sae, Kawakami, Chihaya, Ohya?
One of my favorite games. Praying for a switch version so I have a reason to replay it. Also just picked up dancing on vita.
>>446452846>Can't romance SaeCan't romance any of the guys either, pity.
I tried, but the beginning of the game was so boring and slow, it's absolutely unbearable. The fact that the game holds your hand through the first 2 castles like you're some kind of a retard is really annoying, too.I know it's probably like the other Persona games, and that it gets more interesting the more you progress the story, but my God the beginning of the game is one of the most boring things I've played in my life.
I play SMT instead.
>>446436727I was emulating it but got annoyed by the 15fps whenever it rained.
>>446443013Not to mention shit like fira, firaga, agi, maragi, and so on are things.
>>446436727but I did, and I'm playing it on merciless now!
>>446436727Why should I? Looks like every other JRPG.
I don't own a PS4
Self insert waifu trash.Style over substance.But worse of all, the dungeons are absolute trash.
I don't understand the appeal of a 100 hour long game where all you do is be a student and go to a dungeon every now and then. Is it just disgusting otaku waifufags or is there something I'm missing? I played about half of P3 before dropping it.
>>446443013Those are all D&D spells that do similarly themed but different things. Not exactly fire 1 2 etc
>>446436727Havnt been on v for 2 weeks, gays. Have there been Catherine pc threads already?
I finished the Art Museum dungeon a couple months ago and am hesitant to play again because I don't know what to do with the free time i need to kill before the deadline.
>>446459226Yes>>446459460You could just look up a max SL guide if you care that much, it probably won't spoil anything but it will just railroad you
But i dusted off my ps3 just to play it and it wasn't worth it. Boring game.
>>446436727Is there an upscaled fix for Persona 5 portraits if you're playing more than 720p on ps3? Specifically for 1080.
>>446447775Fuck you, Makoto is pure and only a little bit autistic
>>446454643>The fact that the game holds your hand through the first 2 castles like you're some kind of a retard is really annoying, too.There are people who still don't understand certain plot elements from Persona 5 despite the game overexplaining said elements, so I can't exactly blame Atlus.
>>446436727Tried persona 4 and it was extremely boring so skipped 5
>>446436727Waiting for the inevitable switch portWill play it just to piss off snoy shitters
>>446462651>tfw no pent up stressed high achieving gfI actually met a girl like makoto. Double major chemistry and math and honors department projects. Ton of awards and had a sarcastic personality. Shame she was fat and ugly and didnt want to motivate herself outside school. Lotta pent up frustration.
>>446436727I would play it but I don't want to right now and the switch port/improved version is coming soon anyways
I love Persona 5!! LOVE it!!!!
ok so im trying to emulate it. but its laggy as fuck, the anime cutscenes legit freeze every second, and the audio stutters like a motherfucker. i would buy a ps3/ps4, but i legit dont want to get the console just for one game.
>>446469140Then wait for pc or see if there are other ps4 games you want. Kingdom hearts is coming out soon idk if you like that. Couple other stuff may interest you. Although post Christmas is probably best time to buy for price action.
I've watched the anime instead.
too VN for my taste.
>>446436727Because I know from what little I've seen that I will hate it, and I wouldn't want that to potentially taint Personas 3 and 4 for me.
>>446437105My absolute nigger.
>>446436727It is fucking boring.I am at the part for 3 months now when we returned to the castle and the guards caught the dumb blonde bitch.I couldn't force myself to go back to this fucking teenage drama
>>446444071Third party companies are starting to port their shit to the Switch.FFVII is coming to the Switch even though its the Playstation version.How hard would it be to port Persona 5 to the Switch now that the Switch is slowly becoming the go-to weeb console? Joker is in Smash, and will most likely be on a Nintendo console like every other 3rd party character in Smash
>>446436727I did but never finished it, got bored at one of the last dungeon, the bottom of mementos one
>>446437010its funny how people died waiting for GTAV PC
>>446448967I fucking loved it.
>>446436727Because I haven't played 4 yet.
>>446447775can someone give me the source i can't even find it on saucenao
I couldn't figure out what to name my character
>>446436727I have played it, I just couldn't finish it because it was so boring
