Won't be playing this game anymore, but I did laugh my ass off at this picture and thought the rest of you would enjoy:

15 hours in P4G. This game is everything that is right with JRPGs.

That guy on the right has a haircut.

While I wasn't thrilled by any of the games today (other than InFamous, because I love Infamous), the hardware itself looked solid. Sony's been taking an "everything and the kitchen sink" approach to control methods, and it's one that I think works fantastically with Vita. If the price is right, this could be the only console I'm interested in.

I have become one with PC.

So they're trying to make Dark Souls again. Hmm.

I'm okay with it.

And it got that, along with IS getting a translation at all. EP actually had a very good translation

The goodness of a woman isn't in her bra.

Is this somehow a bad example?

Yeah, that kind of baffles me. If he pulled out something like "This guy are sick" it'd be clear cut, but that actually looks like a line they'd keep.

+1

I don't know if it was just bad english but the one square guy said something that sounded like "i'm your sister's older brother" or some shit.

Dice back me up

I thought he said he was married to his sister.

You can tell he was more business than nerd though -- he failed his joke then quickly moved on instead of waiting for the tumbleweed.

I also loved the audience Blizz-tards clapping as soon as a rep came on -- I wonder how rock hard their nipples got.

...Why can't people just be fans of Blizzard and not Blizz-tards? I no understand.

You score another point for using that image.

Also, they mentioned third-party service integration. PC architecture + Steam library available on PS4 = something we need.

It's been 4 years, and given the sales of P2:IS and in Japan P2:EP there apparently weren't that many eager fans (though the fact it seems something else blocked release seems to indicate there's some odd problem that cropped up).

Plus if they REALLY didn't care they wouldn't even bother with the PS1 game, they hadn't been making a habit of bringing out anything pre-PS2 to digital services, why start now?

The original Persona *desperately* need a proper re-translation. P4 didn't.

Agreed. I wanted both P3:P and P4G much more than P1 and P2, personally.

Why in god's name would want a second version of games you've already played fairly recently? Or in P3's case - twice already?

Because I didn't play them already on consoles, and I hated P1 on PS1.

I never had HUGE issues with it (though maybe it's because I just learned to compensate), but sometimes the game was a little bit sluggish in executing your actions-- the enemies were sluggish in that regard, too, but it did feel a bit wonky at times.

I know some people have speculated that it's related to how much you've spent on the PSN Store.  That's easier to track, anyway.  So if you're only buying physical games I guess that wouldn't matter...

That could be. Although I've been on PS+ forever and I THOUGHT I had bought a good amount of stuff, but maybe not in comparison to others. I COULD HAVE USED THIS TO BUY SOMETHING CHRONO CROSS FOR MY VITA

Did anyone *really* want a portable version of P4 so soon after the original release?

It's been 4 years, and given the sales of P2:IS and in Japan P2:EP there apparently weren't that many eager fans (though the fact it seems something else blocked release seems to indicate there's some odd problem that cropped up).

Dammit Sony, I've owned your consoles since you first MADE them! Why I no get $10?

How many people go through the same experience, of not realizing how very real and very serious mortality can be?

And then you do get that sudden realization and it's terrifying and hard to keep down, and you're staying up till four or five in the morning every night because you can't stand losing consciousness, especially not when it's dark out, and then everything makes you jumpy and you're sleep deprived to the point of being incoherent and inexplicably /cold/ all the time. And it goes on for months.

Or maybe that's just me.

Or you shoot Ultima spells at a planet. Different strokes. :D

Also, Persona 4 is fucking awesome. It's been a while since I played a Shin Megami game, and it's clear they still rock the house and own the show.

You just won all of the internets I have to give.

I was on board right when you said, "FFIX's dark 'cause on the surface it ISN'T dark."

This is the exact point I try to make so often. Real darkness is relative, and if there's just DARKBLACK BLAR MY SOUL IS SO WRETCHED for the entire experience, it's hard to relate to it. FFIX starts out happier, but it gets into some deep and dark business. I mean, the bad guy's entire deal in the end is that he is TERRIFIED of death (kind of like Lord Voldemort :3). It's not hamfisted (at least, not until Necron, but that was basically a nod to the rest of the series and its SURPRISE BITCHES final bosses). But the point is, because it was relatable, you are able to actually empathize with the people in the game. That line from No. 56 is relevant, too. How many people go through the same experience, of not realizing how very real and very serious mortality can be?

Maybe it's not the point you were making, but this is exactly why I enjoy games like Tales of the Abyss and FFIX-- they're light-hearted on the surface, and that helps you become attached to and relate to the characters. THEN, when crazy business starts flying about, you actually care.
