I'd be more interested to play an adventure game rather than an action RPG, which I've never been very fond of.

No official source has said that it's a rpg AFAIK, it's an action adventure.

I know, I was just expressing my thoughts on it.

I don't even think it's a RPG.  The descriptions I've read say Horror/Action/Adventure.

I'm hoping for more Horror/Adventure, myself. I'm sick of all of the Horror/Action, but anything that has "horror" in it I'll usually enjoy.

Oh, missed that, thanks.  

I can deal with a Horror Adventure game, as well.

I wonder if it will have some sort of social link system? I ask because I have seen the same indications of a calendar, like from Persona 3 and 4.

Maybe not a Social Link system, maybe more like "Solve the murders before this date" sort of thing.

Official site open with HD trailer:-

That is one disturbing piece of art.

Seems to much like bush to me.
Actually, I'm hoping the "sexuality" aspect of the character doesn't get in the way of any serious character-building.

C huh? Either that fretting over an AO is truly unwarranted or Japan is just that much more lenient in sexual content. Well, the latter should hold true whether or not it gets an AO, since it'd undoubtedly get an M.

Sexuality, and even deep level relationships, still aren't handled as well as could be in most video game scripts.  It's like how early comic books didn't take heroes' love stories beyond an innocent/superficial kindergarten-crush level, even when they were teens or adults who, by virtue of puberty, are more sexual beings. 

Why can't sex and sexuality BE a part of serious character building?  Hey, when it comes to relationships, people put stock into how many partners their boy/girlfriend has had.  If they're a virgin or promiscuous (depending on how you perceive their numbers), it affects what you think of their character.  Often deeply.  The nature of sex, sexuality, and its effect on the human experience is deep.

Catherine's promiscuity could go both ways with regard to character-building (no pun intended).  If she is portrayed as promiscuous, a flood of stereotypes come to mind, and that could be the extent of her charcter building.  On the other hand, maybe she'll have had a tough upbringing... maybe swallowed by Leviathan and forced to live with monsters in an alternate timeline, resulting in her whips and chains fetish.  That makes you promiscuous too, maybe.

I have faith in the Persona team to AVOID stereotypes; especially the way P4 brought out more of... opposites in what we were presented with.

I suppose I'm a bit use to J-things keeping stereotypes consistent.  The sexy-girl of a series stays sexy through ANY and every situation.

the more and more I look at this game the more and more I know this game is being made with a localization in mind.  Don't worry about it not coming here, I'm 100% sure it will, and very likely uncensored(if there's any censorship its likely to happen before release).

Kotaku say it's a persona spinoff. Those guys can be really retarded.

kotaku probably took one look at Vincent in P3P and decided it must be related
though maybe it will have some connection besides that.
concerning that promiscuity thing holding back character development, I think it seemed like she was flirting in a similar way to Chizuru from Kanokon, and for a game like this with "serious and darkly-toned" written all over it, that could be a really bad thing.
I'd guess she is probably a result of those dreams he has and is a fantasy (like a wet dream) made real.
edit: new stuff on silliconera about this game (and that giant, weird hand thing)
