I like the fact that it takes place in Boston and uses real locations around the city, even if their geography is dead wrong (The statehouse is about 3 blocks from Park Street station for instance) creative liberties and all.
I felt the same way about Fallout 3, since it takes place in the DC area right where I live.  Seeing certain locations, especially the Metro, was practically surreal.  My hometown was appropriated into a suburb of cannibals.  Love it.

Possibly noteworthy: There's a "Persona Music Fes" event happening on August 13th.  Maaaybe they could have some kind of Persona 5 reveal then?  It'll definitely be on people's minds.

Eh.  Every game after Persona 1 has characters from prior games in it, at least in passing.  They aren't direct sequels, but they're iterations in the same franchise that take place in the same world.  I don't mind the semantics of "sequel" in this case.

My guess - we get some kind of teaser at TGS in September, then a 2014 release date.  This is my very, very hopeful guess.

Since it was on sale and there was a buy one get one half-off deal I finally picked up two games that I've wanted forever. I got Valkyria Chronicles and Soul Calibur V for $22. Valkyria Chronicles is extremely good, I love the art and gameplay. This game is as good as I thought it would be when it was released, but there was always other stuff in the way. I'm 9 chapters in and it has been tough, but fair. I've only lost one mission (the one with the huge tank with a million guns) and I thought Selvaria as backup was pretty bullshit and unfair, but the rest of it has been great.
That first mission with Selvaria is a bit of a breakpoint.  One of the hardest missions in the game.  When you're in similar situations later you either have an abundance of cover or an equalizer technique of sorts. 

And Darilon, man, hearing you talk about those makes me want to replay DAO again.  I beat that game twice back to back in 2011 (plus Awakening once and DA2 once), but more doesn't sound half-bad. 

So right now I think I'm in the home stretch of Tactics Ogre: Knight of Lodis and I will soon be looking for the next thing to play.  Right now leaning towards XenoBlade Chronicles.

I haven't played FF VII in 10 or 11 years, so this might be the next way I do it.  Once it's on sale. 
457  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NISA announces Danganronpa and Demon Gaze on: July 06, 2013, 09:57:33 PM
I'm excited for Danganrompa.  Those were blockbuster PSP games in Japan, and the Danganrompa anime is starting out soon.  My guess is that NISA is also licensing that anime and wants to see if they can create some fans of the series outside of Japan.  I have zero problems with this.

Knight of Lodis is one of the best approximations of Final Fantasy Tactics without playing Final Fantasy Tactics.  I already like it loads better than FFTA.  I might dive right into Let Us Cling Together after I finish. 
460  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Best **Badass** Moments in games on: July 04, 2013, 05:14:55 PM
The respective last stands of more than half of FF IV's main cast.  Even if most of them survive.

FROG. CUTS. MOUNTAIN.

When you see Zack's final moments in Crisis Core just before and during the end credits, it's something really special.  100x better than the same scene playing out in FF VII. 

And that was your Square in the 90s Badass Minute.

Playing more Tactics Ogre Knight of Lodis.  Currently iI'm at a map called Ostorea Castle, which has two consecutive encounters that can't share units. Basically, you ought to have 16 characters around level 20 to challenge the first two stages (eight for each one). I have 13 characters TOTAL, and zero of them are at level 20. Only nine of them are above level 12, with most of those nine in the level 17-19 range. I have some character creation and level grinding to do. Gonna get on that.

I find it unusual that the most AMERICAN game ever was made in Japan.



Fuck yeah

Almost done with inFamous 2.  Gonna wrap up the story, then do some UGC grinding for trophies.  I think I'll 100% this one by tomorrow. 
464  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Index (Atlus' parent company) declared bankruptcy on: June 28, 2013, 01:18:47 PM
...from Index Corp and not Atlus. I'm sure they'll find a buyer soon. Marvelous and Square-Enix both make sense, but I won't place any bets.
