At this point I am just praying that the inevitable (and currently unrevealed) second female party member has a better persona choice than Carmen.

In all honesty, I highly suspect that Carmen Sandeigo is still under someone's copyright and thus was never actually an option to begin with. That said, it was still less stupid than what we got.
Carmen Sandeigo is most certainly still under copyright. General rule of thumb for copyright, is it younger than Mickey Mouse? If so then probably under copyright (excluding weird cases like Night of the Living Dead). Also I feel like Carmen Sandeigo is mostly an American thing, so P5 developers may not have even ever heard of her. *shrug*

Beat Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker over the weekend. Extremely well done all things considered. I'm so close atm to getting one of the ultimate weapons in the game (just need to beat one mission), but it just is not working. So on to grinding R&D ranks so I can build a silenced sniper rifle and just head shot all the stupid escort troops without them knowing. >.>

Finished MGS2 and MGS3. Those damn frogs in MG3 are evil. I spent several hours trying to get the ones in the chase scenes. Pure evil. >.>

Started MG: Peace Walker. Not too far into it yet.

I'm happy to play these games and pretend I get the story for the sake of some fun friendship drama with a layer of Star Wars on top...but yeah I have no idea what's happening beyond broad strokes.
What is confusing in BBS? O.o The series isn't even close to being confusing until 3D.

Actually let's throw that into the unpopular opinions pile. KH is not confusing. :p

I wonder if KS is a passing trend, I feel like it's getting more issues than successes, and there's so much chances for abuse of it (see MNo9)
Eh KS is just as strong now as it has always been from my perspective. Pillars of Eternity funded in October 2012 with 3.9 million and Shenmue 3 funded with 6.3 million in July. Since 2012, I have backed 75 projects, and of those 75 there are maybe 2 or 3 where I have any regrets over backing them. Kickstarter is a great platform, and it is here to stay.

You just have to be careful on what you back as there are a lot of projects where the creators have no idea of what they are doing (although most of those are easy to spot).

= Square Enix hasn't had a game with a good story in like a decade.
*double checks release date of BBS* Lies! Square Enix has had at least one game with a good story in the past ten years. :p

Officially abandoned once again my playthrough of Persona 3 FES: The Answer. It isn't even so much the lack of the social gameplay, after all I love a good dungeon crawler. Rather, the add-on fails to offer any kind of hook story-wise even after the first two dungeons. It's just hard to invest in something that doesn't want to promise any kind of payoff.

I can tell you what the "payoff" is...

It reveals why the MC of Persona 3 ends up dying at the end.

Beat Metal Gear Solid 2 on Very Easy last night with all dog tags. Now onto Easy to collect all of those dog tags so I can get infinite ammo...which seems fairly useless unless ammo gets rare on higher difficulties.

We got some names! Not sure if it counts as spoilers or not, but I'll use tags just in case. Fox mask guy and Persona names forthcoming:
fox mask guy: Yusuke Kitagawa
Protagonist's Persona: Arsène
Anne's Persona: Carmen
Ryuji's Persona: Captain Kidd
Morgana's Persona: Zorro
Yusuke's Persona: Goemon

They're all famous thieves!

Yeah I sort of guessed Zorro upon seeing that persona making a Z with a rapier during the last trailer. Knew Ryuji's was a pirate also, even if I wasn't sure which one. Going to guess his upgrade is Blackbeard. Not familiar with either Arsène or Carmen. I'm not sure how I feel about all of their personas being thieves. On one hand it does fit with concept of the game, but at the same time a persona is supposed to represent the face that you show to the world and yet I doubt these characters are not hiding the fact that they are acting as thieves. I suppose a counter to that is that the thieves that are their persona probably also hid their identities (except maybe Captain Kidd), but I dunno. Almost feel like these persona make more sense as their shadows, although I suppose a persona is just a tamed shadow in universe so that may have something to do with it? *shrug*

Started MGS2 yesterday. Based on the number of dog tags I have, I think I am about 2/3s of the way through. Going to be working on this one for a while because there is apparently a trophy for collecting all dog tags on all difficulties. Yay?

^Ugh, I hate when they switch the X and O buttons, especially if you can't easily remap the buttons. I was playing Dragon Quest VIII the other day and it was like I had never played a game before - I kept having to look at the controller, frequently hitting the wrong buttons...ugh...

Sad to hear you lost progress due to a little mistake, though. =(
Well technically speaking they didn't switch the X and O buttons. My understanding is that in Japan the standard is that O is confirm and X is cancel, so what they did was not switch it...probably because MGS is old enough that the US standard of X for confirm hadn't become so ingrained yet.

O.o That pie is staring at me.

I think that once all of the cast members are revealed, the full cut of that opening scene will have all of them skating / dancing whatever on that highway overpass.  Right now the trailer scenes are edited in a way that seems disjointed.  Still looks fresh as f***. 
Yeah, pretty sure that is what is going on here. Pretty sure they did something similar with some of the earlier trailers with opening footage as well. For example, fox mask guy was not in the skating scene in the previous skating sequence, so they are clearly making sure to not reveal too much of their hand...or face. Get it? because masks? eh eh eh? I'll go hang my head in shame in the corner now...

So this was basically me last night as I finished up my second playthrough of MGS.

"Really got the exact same rank even though I used Stealth the entire time? Oh well. Yes I would like to save so I can have a save file with both stealth and the bandanna and then get to bed." *presses X* "Huh why am I at the title screen instead of the save screen?" *realizes he hit X instead of O* "FUUUUUUUUUUUU..."

Don't think I'll be replaying again as I hate the final fight and the second phase of the fight right before the final fight
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 5 on: September 19, 2015, 06:19:33 AM
So a thought occurs to me while watching the most recent trailer, did we know that the masks the characters wear are their persona summoning method prior to the most recent trailer? I don't recall knowing that before. Either way, doing that is so freaking on the nose considering what concept of a persona represents that it is kind of hilarious to me. XP
