Spend a few minutes talking about how good Persona 5 is.
Spend the rest of the hour talking about how it's terrible and needs to burned alive.

Nobody said that. You're misrepresenting the discussion.

I was joking. I thought the little smiley conveyed that, but I guess not. My b.

My apologies, then. Tone is always hard to interpret via text. :) Persona 5 is amaaaazing, though. I'm trying to decide which DLC pack I want to buy for my second playthrough...probably the Catherine one, once it's out!

I was so confused the first time I heard the song that plays with the Catherine costumes. I'd completed the game, yet never heard that song. After looking up where it came from, my second thought was that it most definitely makes a better battle tune than a tower climbing one... and it makes a pretty freaking good tower climbing one.

Persona 5 is most definitely a fantastic game! Even having played P4:Golden, SMTIV, SMTIV:Apocalypse, and both Cold Steel games for the first time within the past year, each of which have provided me with some of the best JRPG experiences I've had in years, P5 easily stands out above them all. Atlus did a fantastic job, and I absolutely do not regret spending the extra for the Take Your Heart edition. Nor do I regret my desire to buy all of the costumes just to support them more.

While I absolutely understand the fear that it could go to their head, resulting in scummy DLC practices, I'd say there are two major differences. First, they actually made an extremely solid, polished, and complete game that absolutely stands on its own without any kind of added content. Second, it's all purely cosmetic, and doesn't block any important story elements behind a paywall. I totally understand the disappointment of communities (particularly of those like Tales) who feel disappointed that neat bonuses like costumes are now something you pay for, but having seen games where content was removed from the game to be sold back as DLC, or significant plot elements were only explained in DLC, I'm all for cosmetics only.

Not that I'm against content DLC if done well - Artorias of the Abyss was fantastic! In fact, if Atlus DOES decide on an FES/Golden enhancement to P5, I hope they release it (or at least, have the option of obtaining it as) DLC. While I don't mind paying for the TYH edition and costumes, I'd feel a little salty if all of that went to waste because they announced a new model later this year.

The guest on the most recent episode was a pleasant surprise and yall should bring him back more often!

Also I appreciated Derek's rant about minions and rabbids being hot trash.  I'm glad I'm not the only person that finds both characters so contemptible.

T H A N K. Y O U. Minions make me want to die. Of course, announcing my hatred has only pushed my friends into sending me all kinds of minion shit just to get a rise out of me. I can't win, lol.

We'll try to get him back on the show soon! :]

You, Rob and Derek always had a really fantastic dynamic, which is probably the main thing I enjoy in the podcasts I listen to.  Especially with video games as a topic, I feel like it helps the conversation flow more freely and promotes better discussion when the dynamic between the hosts is so good.

I'm really pleased to hear that, Marshmallow. Thank you for listening and for taking the time to write here on the forums. I think we've all said it a zillion times by now, but we do this purely out of love for games, so it means a lot that you're able to get something out of our discussions. :)
