Persona 5
 
Deserves its own thread.

Strong contender for best game of this console generation.

Probably will only be used by seph and I...

Fignuts 10-08-2017 04:36 PM

I redboxed it and beat the first major dungeon. Absolutely a contender, from what I've played but I'd have to finish it to make an accurate judgement.

Probably the best JRPG in a VERY long time.

Destor 10-08-2017 04:40 PM

It just gets better and more deep as it goes. Witcher 3 is the only thing that ranks up there for me. WRPG vs JRPG for the title

#BROKEN Hasney 10-08-2017 04:44 PM

It's fantastic, but the only bummer is that story and character wise, it doesn't live up to the highs of 4. Which is a shame, because the combat system is in the best place it's ever been along with the dungeons being designed instead of generated.

Could have dine without Mementos too. As well as the daily text messages, especially once you've beaten a dungeon "Hey, do you think his heart will change?!" Every day. I think it is 50 hours of greatness stretched out to be 90-100 hours.

Destor 10-08-2017 04:48 PM

Morgona telling me to go to bed instead of working out/crafting is my only gripe...love the characters though. All the standard Shonen tropes that i want from a hjghschool anime.

screech 10-08-2017 04:59 PM

Would I be lost story-wise playing this without playing the others?

Oh yeah, I still love them. They're just not Persona 4's characters that were just a slight level above.

Nah, think of the games like Final Fantasy where there's little nods to the other games, but it's a whole new setting and story.

Horizon just barely eeks out witcher 3 for me. But a lot of that has to do with my personal preference of horizon's ranged combat system.

Destor 10-08-2017 05:38 PM

Cherami Leigh plays Queen ftr and i love her.

Played the 1st hour...need to go back to it at some point...

Seph 10-09-2017 10:25 PM

Ryuji is the best comic relief character in YEARS. Love trolling the shit out of him.

Almost felt the need to troll Makoto too, but felt wrong about it when it came time. BEEP BOOP.

Destor 10-09-2017 10:30 PM

Haha inalmost said beep boop to her but i thinknim gonna romance her. My Cherami Leigh love is fierce thanks to her playing lucy heartfelia

Seph 10-09-2017 10:36 PM

I'm going to do that most dastardly of things in regards to romance....I'm going to date all of them at the same time. Already scored Ann. Kawakami is next.

If I had to choose one though, it would be Tae Takemi. Punk rock doctor is just....yeaaaaaaaaah. Plus she experiments on me at work. Can only imagine what she's gonna do to me in the attic.

Destor 10-09-2017 10:39 PM

Haha thats how i played witcher 3. Fucked them alllllllll. But i dunno...joker feels too honorable for that to me ...then again...i am a lecher at heart :lol:

#BROKEN Hasney 10-10-2017 01:24 AM

I got with them all. Man, valentines day was awkwaarrrrddd.

Destor 10-10-2017 02:54 AM

Finished palace 4. One go again. Not easy but doable.

Seph 10-10-2017 09:28 PM

I haven't been able to play much the last couple days. Too much work to do. Gonna try and finish up palace 4 tomorrow.

Destor 10-10-2017 11:03 PM

Its really good. Post palace 4 i got the STM accessories...went through mementos...they kinda break the game.

Seph 10-11-2017 12:30 AM

STM? Stamina? Sorry probably being daft right now.

Destor 10-11-2017 09:04 AM

correct

Destor 10-11-2017 09:05 AM

I guess it's SP in this game

Seph 10-11-2017 02:05 PM

Oh yeah, those. I got one before the 3rd palace and another before the 4th. They definitely make things much easier, especially once you find which enemies to sleep on, like the high pixies in palace 3.

Destor 10-11-2017 02:07 PM

The thiefs in palace 4...ones with the moon heads and the loot over their shoudlers...

Seph 10-11-2017 11:44 PM

I'm abusing the SP accessories in an attempt to farm the mats necessary for the unbreakable lockpick in Palace 4. Getting the aluminum sheets at a good clip....no luck on the liquid metals though. Anubis is a stingy with the liquid metal.

Destor 10-11-2017 11:49 PM

They spawn in the last 3 floorsof the next section of momentos as well if you need to keep farming

Seph 10-12-2017 12:37 AM

Don't know when I'll actually go to mementos again tbh, I try to wait until I have a bunch of requests built up so I waste as little time as possible in there. Unless the requests start pouring in I could easily see it being like a month of in game time before I make another trip. I didn't take my first full trip into their until after palace 3, so some time in July. And I'm working through Palace 4 as we speak on July 31st.

I'd get in there when you've got some that block social links and clear a bunch if them out when you can.

Seph 10-13-2017 08:50 PM

I FINALLY had the time to finish the initial run-through of Palace 4. However I am sticking around a bit to grind up some more yen and maybe actually get the mats for an eternal lockpick. Surprisingly I ended up with half the required liquid mercury on my first initial trek through the place, and just under half the required aluminum sheets. Figure I might stick around and get up to level 37 so I can go ahead and capture the LVL36 Baboon and LVL 37 Anubis enemies.

I hung around the other palaces long enough to capture all of their personas, save maybe 1, but I'm not sure that one was catchable anyways.

Seph 10-13-2017 08:55 PM

Off-topic a bit:

This game is QUICKLY moving up my all-time list, that's for sure. I love it. Can't get enough. I feel like I may end up putting more time into a single playthrough of this game than any other, save maybe The Witcher 3 and Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii. Speaking of which, stoked for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Got my son a switch for Christmas...but hey, added benefits for me with that release lol. It's kinda funny I've had this switch sitting in the closet for like 2 months now, along with Mario+Rabbids and have Odyssey ordered already, and my son is constantly BEGGING for a switch and doesn't think he's getting one. Hope he doesn't chance across it being nosy like kids tend to be; he'd probably open it and start playing it lol.

I maxed the politician so i dont have a level cap on personas now. Totally worth it.

When this gen is over i think there will be a huge library of quality rpgs for the switch. Im pretty excited for the potential it has.

Seph 10-15-2017 02:47 AM

So I'm done grinding the Futaba palace first run. Captured Anubis and Thoth. Got 12 liquid mercury....and only 10 aluminum sheets. UHG. Can't really fight the Anzu enemies that drop aluminum now as I am overleveled and instakill thanks to ryuji and don't feel like starting every battle without an ambush, thus wasting time and resources. Kinda sad :(

Oh well, I'll get the goods in mementos later I suppose. Really wanted that eternal lockpick, though lol.

Destor 10-15-2017 09:30 AM

Ive got the mats for it. Next time i get to slack off in class il. Make it.

Also domt ambus em and ryuijis skill work proc...yeah?

Seph 10-16-2017 01:36 AM

Yeah but if you don't ambush them and you happen to pull an Anubis he will get multiple hit-all and/or insta-kill moves in before you can kill him. I've gotten frustrated af a couple times when I hadn't saved for a little while I was farming the stuff only to have an Anubis target Joker with instakill moves. Once he targeted me, missed, then immediately targeted me with a different instakill and landed it -_-'

In a game where your main character dying is automatic game over, having instakills is definite wekasauce.

Doesn't matter anyways, I moved on from that palace now. I'm in early September, right before the school trip. Ended up with 16 liquid mercury and 12 Aluminum (used some in a different craft I was knocking out for progress on the crafting trophy). I'm going to make another trip into mementos in the next couple of in-game days, before the trip, and I will just farm a bunch of aluminum from the random drops on the ground in the new area by continually reloading whichever zone I happen to find one in first. Also hoping to go ahead and knock the red phosphorous requirement out at the same time, too, as they are super rare and I already managed to get like 5 of those from Palace 4.

Seph 10-16-2017 01:37 AM

Meanwhile max rank Ryuji repeatedly survives instakills with 1hp lol

Seph 10-16-2017 01:44 AM

WOOOO TRIPLE POST TIME

Dunno if you watch any anime but I have noticed a distinct similarity between Persona 5 and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. In the anime all of the main characters, good and bad, are tied to the different tarot cards like Sun/Star/Hanged Man/Emperor, etc, and their powers are this invisible creatures that stand behind them and attack for them and can't be seen by normies. Several of the bad guys in the anime are converted to the good side by removing a small parasite from their forehead that changes their cognition. Also in the overall JoJo narrative, the magic power they all have comes from an energy called Hamoan, which is a bless instakill move in P5. Kinda weird how much they align.

Another excellent reference in P5 I noticed was when Yusuke rearranges Futabas rip-off power rangers action figures into the Ginyu Force pose from Dragon Ball Z, and then the next question you get when school is available after the break is about King Kamehameha and what he is holding in his hand in a statue of him and one of the answers is "A Dragon Ball".

Excellent.

Equip Joker with your own Anubis and you'll be immune to bnoth curse and bless instakills... I keep atleast one persona in my party with NUL to both just incase I hit an insta kill heavy area.

I watch an unhealthy ammount lol I will check it out though I havent seen it.


Tons of subtle refferences in the game; tons more Im sure that are lost on wetsern audiences.

Seph 10-16-2017 05:13 PM

Convenient -_- I quit farming when I caught the Anubis LOL then had to ditch him in favor of my confidant link spamming lineup of personas for the next month+ of social interactions without a palace.

Destor 10-16-2017 05:40 PM

Lol there are a few options other than him but you can just buy one from the velvet room

Seph 10-16-2017 09:50 PM

Oh yeah, I know I can summon another one, I just don't have the space for him right now. I'll max a couple more confidants soon, probably Yusuke and Miss Teacher Lady and won't need to carry an affiliated persona at that point so I'll have more free spots.

Trying to be efficient with my money atm, don't want to overly waste on summons if I don't have to.

Also tend to leave one spot open so when I run through mementos and instakill everything, I always automatically get the persona from that potential battle. Then I just go into the menu and discard it to free the slot up again. They are always available in the velvet room once caught, after all, unless you catch them while in a battle and immediately discard them due to lack of space; then you don't get credit at all.

I'm on the day before we fly out to Hawaii now, have made my way all the way down to the bottom of Mementos, done all the requests other than the cheating gamer one that you can't do the first time through, got the aluminum for my eternal lockpick, pretty sure I have all the personas available from mementos thus far, and I'm sitting on a cool million yen. Also up to level 41. Feel pretty good about my current situation. About to go dick around with the velvet room and progress with the twins a bit now, then prob grind back to a million loots. Still want more aluminum so I can go ahead and craft everything for the trophy other than the one requiring red phosphorus. I'll get those in time.

Also, I did get the politician up to rank 10. USEFUL ability that gives you. Does it work when fusing though? Doesn't seem like it will as the twins warn me about destruction and the result preview is still blacked out. Don't want to waste on a fusion that won't work.

Destor 10-16-2017 09:53 PM

Does not work on fusions no
