Her hat is magical, and she does that thing where you rapidly mutter a string of words under your breath. Also, yea, she's some of the most obvious new content.

I love Marie. Sorry. Besides wanting to marry Kanji.

Speaking of Marie, after a while she doesn't want to go out of the car anymore and it says a "spark" needs to happen. What is this spark?

Yes!
I finally understand everything there is to know about axes!


It took me mucking around with the voice feature to realise you can go to Aiya at night. This is pretty awesome. Also I'm one of the Yuu people, it's pretty amusing when people go "Hey Yuu."

Battles are much easier then when I started to play this on Hard on my PS2 this year though. I decided to go through on Normal mode. It's a refreshing change I guess, but I'll be playing a harder difficulty on NG+ for sure.

For some reason, all of Yu Narukami's dreams seem to be about wearing luchador masks and wrestling Chie or Marie. Yu Narukami is a strange man.

Don't think, feel.

Marie is dull, like super dull. Nothing about her is interesting it's just hearing her say a few funny things and then she makes like 20 obnoxious comments and writes crappy poetry. I also hate her design, but that's a different thing altogether. Anyways, I'm at the third dungeon and this is probably the first time in any playthrough of P4 I've been OCD about leveling my Personae up so I can fuse them for better skills and to register them with all of their abilities. Before I'd just make the strongest thing I could and then waste whatever showed up.

Also, whoever though of adding in the "If you die you start at the beginning of the floor" idea deserves a bonus. Games where your main character dies and you lose are obnoxious and it's nice to see games like FFXIII and Persona 4 Golden find ways to make that less of an inconvenience.

I can see the old-guard SMT fan objecting to it, saying it's going "soft" on the players, but I agree, after just beating P3P and dealing with myriad bullshit deaths in the last leg of that, I welcome a restart function.

I always thought game over because MC died in P4 was weird anyways. I had assumed it was in P3 because of, well, canonical reasons, and never really understood why it was in P4.

Before we do the whole Marie backlash because she's popular train, can someone answer my question about why she won't go outside because we need a "spark" in our relation? I'm post-Kanji if it helps.

Since her scenes have a lot of character cross-over, she probably won't do anything until you get Rise/Teddie.

Ehhh, this isn't really as serious a situation as the potential situation in Persona 3. It's really just a gameplay hold-over, there's no justifcation for it besides the fact that you falling in battle just causes your team in P4 to flip out and die.

Too early, eventually when you pop in the car they'll be like, take her out and she'll be all "well i'm angsty and pronounce things wrong so DEAL WITH IT"

Beat Shadow Yosuke, finally. Shoji Meguro's score really helps these scenes, and it's good to know I've finally started this game. Only a hundred more hours to go!

You can just go in and out of the Room from the 18 onward, until the event triggers. I like her party member interactions.

Why? I mean I've only got up to her S. Link level 4, but the unconditional love that the group seems to have for her so far and how nothing she says ever seems to actually annoy when it is genuinely mean-spirited to them just sort of annoys me.

I got the Adachi S Link, whenever I meet him it says he's busy and I have to wait until the case dies down. Does this mean don't bother trying to talk to him unless you're between kidnappings?

I think you might have to visit him in the evening when he says that. He's dicking around at the shopping strip during that time.

... I fail to see how the entire world being shrouded in fog and everyone being transformed into Shadows is somehow less serious than the moon crashing into the planet and killing everyone since either way it means the end of humanity as we know it.

Another question about the spoilered S Link (probably don't read unless you've finished the original P4)

He's the Jester arcana, and it says I get an EXP boost for fusing Persona of that arcana. Did they shuffle some old ones around to be Jesters now, are they all new, or is it a red herring? I know they do something with his arcana later in the game, so I'm curious how that actually affects your fusions.

Also, what's the lowest level Aeon Persona you can have to get the S Link bonus with Marie?

If I remember correctly then they shuffled around some old persona and added a few new ones for the Jester Arcana.

I've only got two unlocked so far, but they seem to be new to P4. I've got the two lowest levels, Gurr and Take-Minakata.

Lowest level Aeon you can get is at 18.

Is Izanagi still a bleh persona? Kinda sad to me that you can't keep the PC's signature persona.

You can't expect the thing you start with to carry you through the whole game! At least not until you see the True Ending and can fuse his souped up version in NG+. When you reach level 90 or so again. Because your level doesn't carry through to NG+. (This was in vanilla P4, by the way.)

The damage formula uses a Persona's base level as part of the calulation, so Izanagi is always going to be pretty handicapped in anything but the very early game.

On the other hand, it's still better than Orpheus in P3. At least Izanagi is actually vaguely useful in the first dungeon.

If you really wanted to, you could run around gobbling up the level up and stat boost arcana and make it work. Slap on some skill cards that you pick up for higher tier spells and go to town.

It wouldn't even let me do it (I had two Sharp Students). She took one and the other never showed up to give her.

So no.

I hadn't realized that the Resist X abilities essentially replaced Wk with Str - that makes Narcissus (Aeon 24) a great early-ish choice for putting maragi/mabufu/magaru/mazio on. Enough slots for that, Resist Phys and Resist Fire and an empty for whatever. Maybe Rampage or something?

Ever since they worked on that project together, her life turned around and became more exciting.


Didn't pick this up, since I recently beat P4, and didn't feel the need to pick it up and re-beat it on the Vita, but every single thing I see of this game, just seems like a wacky insano version of Persona 4, and I'm absolutely loving the things I'm seeing, will probably have to pick it up soon.

Oh right, I had 4 Agi cards and just hit register all and they disappeared from the list. The rest are probably still in my inventory.

The only thing I wish this game had was the ability to help people out without having to constantly hit SOS SOS SOS. I'd totally love an alert system just hanging out in the upper left or right corner. But, make it optional for those that wouldn't want it.

So I just got a Vita from target for like $180 just to play this game. Holiday sales own. Pretty shiny little thing, maybe i'll actually use it outside of P4 time.

Anyways I have no idea how vita works, I still need to -get- the game though. Is there any reason to not just buy it from the psn or is there a reason to get a retail copy.

There was a preorder bonus that gave you the screen cover that came out in Japan. If you got the space and aren't a sperg about reselling games then no, digital is fine.
