Persona 5 doesn't let you save at all during the school trip which was somewhat problematic lol

Also, a coincidence...?

Whenever I get a PlayStation 5 Iíd use that as my excuse to play again, though I donít think it has any upgrades?

As I was typing this post up I didnít know Persona 5 also came out for PS3 and was ported to PS4. Thatís wild. I canít imagine how good a Persona 6 would look assuming Altus makes it a next gen exclusive.

I was kind of disappointed that they made the plat so basic in P5R. Sure there's the Phantom Thief hideout cheevos, but they're impossible to do in a single playthrough so you would have to be sitting on a NG+ file. I think an all achievement run of P5 would be really interesting to try and route

Isn't the real ballache achievement in P5 the one about beating all the video games because the timing on one of them is absurdly tight?

Well, it sort of depends. It's annoying if you're playing the game, uh, the right way I guess? But it's pretty easy to do if you do a dungeon as early as possible, save immediately after, and then do nothing but play games every day until you get it. Then, just load up your file.

Books are similarly annoying because once you finish the Casino, you lose access to all the books at the school and so if you didn't finish them all by that point, you have one day in December to go get a single book. This is sort of fixed in Royal though because of the new semester

I started Royal on PS4 and switched to PS5 about halfway through. No actual graphic upgrades are anything, but I found load times notably faster, even though they weren't intensely long to begin with (and they can only be shortened so much since the game still wants to play the transition animations).

Not sure if Iím understanding properly... however if you are talking about a single play through platinum run it is possible on Royal (I did that when I played it) but impossible on Vanilla. Pretty sure you have to 100% the compendium and fight the secret boss fight to get platinum in vanilla and both of those are not even possible until NG+

Shorter load times means less time spent listening to Beneath The Mask so no thank you

Yeah, I guess I mean in the context that I've already beaten the game once, so it would be possible to do all achievements in a NG+ file without transferring anything over. I'd be able to just make a new temporary PS profile, transfer my save, and then do every achievement in that one singular run. You'd need to be in NG+, but you wouldn't need to have pre-unlocked any achievements in your first run to succeed in this scenareo

Royal has a few Thieves' Den achievements that are like, one for dating a girl and then one for not dating a girl, so it would be impossible to get all of the achievements in one run unless you were transferring over a save file where you already have a certain portion of the achievements completed. I'd have to remember who I dated in my first playthrough, also, which I don't. But, if you didn't count the Den achievements and just went for a regular Playstation achievement plat, that's super easy and basically just obtained through intended play

It's very easy to do that one though since you can just save before doing a Rank 9 and then reload for the other choice.

A goon was able to get me a PlayStation Vita and I was able to get my hands on a decent sized memory card for it! To honor this occasion and the fact this thing is destined to be a Classic Game/Persona system, I think itís about time I played the older Persona games...

May the long rear end downloads commence

Edit: of course this also means a Golden Switch Port is more likely now that Iím getting a copy of it for this now. Need a physical one eventually because I love my physical copies but 20 bucks for Golden isnít a hard sell

I beat Golden when I borrowed a friends vita, liked it so much I bought a vita for myself. Planning on buying it along with P3P for the console because I liked them both so much. When I was referring to the older games I was talking about Persona 1 and 2 (both of the games in the two story) because I havenít played those yet

Edit: welp so much for that. Bought Persona 1 PSP for the vita and it wonít download. Keep getting error messages... gonna see if tommorow I can get a refund. :sigh:

I mean I can still play in on the psp since I got a physical copy but dammit I wanted to put it on the vita

Edit 2: ok, might have found a work around with my PS3? Will see if that works but if I have to do that with all games that is gonna suck

Edit 3: downloaded it to the PS3 but it still gives me the same error messages. Gonna request that refund tomorrow then and see if they budge

Edit 4: Annnndddd all of a sudden it decides to play nice... finally let me download it. is the Vita store buggy or something?

I haven't had any problems with digital Vita copies of the Persona games but I do know that apparently the PSOne Classics Suikoden 2 isn't flagged properly and won't download to the Vita. I had to download it to my brother's PS3 and transfer it to my Vita from there, but then I hacked my Vita so I no longer give a poo poo. Highly recommended you hack it even if you're not going to pirate at all, it's piss easy and lets you use microSD instead of the stupid expensive proprietary Vita memory cards with an adapter (that goes in the cartridge slot for some reason?).

It could be P6 news, but I'm betting it's a remaster or a port or something. I'm betting they're saving P6 for the last announcement, which is like a full year away.

But, yes, the official 25th anniversary is tomorrow and they'll probably announce something then.

I don't think a P3 remake is out of the question. I see a lot of people on Twitter saying it won't happen and it's more likely they remaster it with the female route, and I think those people are underestimating the amount of work that would be. A full remake just makes more sense at that point.

Well thatís awkward, just installed P1 on my new vita (after a night on the store going ďhah no you canít download thisĒ)

I can see why itís not looked at as fondly though. First two hours of gameplay have been a bit of a confusing mess. However I have never once felt like I was in over my head and ran into a slaughter.
