In short, his name is Kuma ('Bear') and he lives in your television. :P  He also hooks the party up w/ their evokers, which happen to be glasses, not guns.  Nerdcore!


As long as we are on the subject of comedy, has the game tickled your funny bone at all? I thought P3 had a rather brilliant mix of humor throughout the entire story, and it never once made me take the (dramatic) story any less seriously. How is the comedy this time around? Who is the Junpei of P4?

The junpei is obviously the other male character that appears in the party besides of the MC, he appears in a lot of goofy situations in the trailers.

The girl with the short hair seems to be the yukari of the party. The other girl seems to have more of a Fuuka personality (though way hotter).

There are probably more characters joining the party eventually.

The humor in P3 was brilliant, I'm confident that we'll get more of the same. Same goes for translation and voice acting.

long FMVS are a good thing more fmv means more story, and more story generally means a deeper richer gaming experience. i hope theres an OAV leding the game in.

Eternal Sonata's ending (and apparently the rest of the game) completely invalidates your post.


i dont remember them being super long, then again i havent beaten it yet. i guess i should revise that statement to say long fmvs are usually a good thing

Yousuke, who is the guy w/ the headphones, he's funny.  Chie is indeed reminiscent of Yukari, maybe a little more on the childish/clingy side.  As for Yukiko, I wouldn't describe her like Fuuka... Fuuka was extremely shy and socially awkward, whereas Yukiko has more of a 'quiet loner' personality type.

P4 has the same brilliant mix of humor, but on the whole, the storyline itself is significantly darker than P3, but less so than P2: Innocent Sin and P2: Eternal Punishment.  We're talking murder victims who are tied up on telephone poles, and traumatic sequences where each character confronts his or her "dark side" and all of the negative/perverse thoughts that people try to hide.

That sounds very good. Thanks for increasing my suffering.

I'm glad to hear that Yukiko isn't like Fuuka. I just got that impression from the trailers.

^Not really spoilers, but it is a boss fight later on. Nothing bad that'll ruin the game for you.

But damn, this is the coolest dungeon/boss ever/!

That is the most awesome boss in the series next to Nyx in my opinion. I saw a video that was awesome too but I don't want to spoil it for you guys so wait till December. :)

Am I the only one who likes to live in complete ignorance when anticipating a new game? I'll give the OST a shot and then crawl back under a rock until December. :)

I like a few basic details, and if I'm apathetic or weary about a game I'll check out more than one I'm hyped up on, but I consider this modern tendency to hunt down any detail that appears exasperating. Some sites may carelessly spoil (Kotaku on THE ending twist for MGS4) or some people are baffled as to why YOU don't watch every trailer or see every picture leaves me frustrated.

Nope, I'm the same. I don't really anticipate things much anymore, nor do I try to keep up with details on upcoming games. If I like it, I read about it a bit and then wait for the release date. If no release date is announced on a game I may be looking forward to, I'm more prone to look it up to see if one gets announced. After that, I just wait for the date. This reminds me of the kid at my school who went ape shit over GTA4 and literally read everything he could. He spent some nights just watching videos on it. It got to the point where he brought a GTA4 map to school and pointed out where key events took place. Crazy bastard.

I like to.  This isn't an example for a game, but I avoided pretty much everything regarding The Dark Knight and when I saw it last night it blew me away.  

However, as much as I'd like to avoid knowing anything about certain games I want to play it is often difficult for me to do so since I write for RPGFan.  Though admittedly, ever since I decided to stop writing previews (for which I had to scour for any tidbit of information about a game) I'm enjoying anticipatory gaming a lot more.  I'm looking more forward to Black Sigil since I don't have to write about it for a preview prior to its release.

No, you're not.

I try to glean some general impressions without things getting spoilery.

Save me a rock.

I did exactly the same thing.  If something I'm really anticipating I prefer to avoid everything pertaining to it.  It's gotten especially hard in this day and age with it becoming a trend to spoil things.  I'm sure everybody's had atleast something spoiled for them.  I remember when kids were going around on opening night for Harry Potter #6 and spoiling the ending of it.  I could make a whole side thread for this, but I digress.  It really depends on your viewpoint, some people get very pissed off when major plot points are spoiled for them.

As for Persona 4, I'm attempting to ignore all information about the game except for specific details that I already asked Shiguma about.  So I'll be under a rock until December as well.

I like to know about gameplay details before going into these things. All those most review sites aren't very good at explaining those beyond a "CARS GO VROOM" level of detail.
