[SMT/Persona] Lu Bu wants to Scramble

I'm ready go tonight. There's a party, alright. We don't need the raisin for joy, oh yeah. Tick down to midnight.

And I love everything about her. Time to buy the game again and play it for probably 90+ hours (due to all the new content) again... I might be ready by 2020.

Obviously I'm into rose-aesthetic dancy-fencer, but I also feel it's slightly overlapping with Haru who was already an underfocused character outside of Her Dungeon.

Persona's always been pretty good on gender parity, but it's pretty sweet to see this installment so female-heavy.

Unless I'm totally blanking and forgetting someone, she technically evens that out, rather than making it female heavy. It's just that Goro isn't counted by most people because he isn't playable for very long (among other raisins) and Morgana is a cat, so it makes it seem that way.

There was a Japanese live stream of P5R info just now and some people are already translating the info. It's pretty easy to find. Meanwhile, I love one of Haru's new outfits.



Some other info is that there will apparently be a gallery mode (I guess just portraits and a way to re-watch cut scenes?)

Kasumi's arcana is apparently "the faith" in French. Really not sure how that fits in with the usual Persona arcanas yet.

You can use grappling abilities more in the dungeons and reach areas/items/enemies from father distances.

Guns are more customizable with abilities (I hope there are easier ways to earn money, then).

And in pure Atlus fashion, there will be more info in July.

Just beat PQ2. Took about 70 hours, so it's an investment. I liked the original PQ better, but this is still good if you liked that one.

I just felt like the last area of this one was kind of bland. Nowhere near as dark or epic as the grueling last area in the original.

Watching the credits now though, and it's cute because there's a bunch rotating artwork that's really good. Soundtrack was pretty great, too.

It's apparently Ryuji's birthday in the real world and people are posting about it and posting pics of their plushies of him next to ramen, since he loves it so much. I inadvertently had ramen for dinner tonight. My anniversary with Mike was yesterday but that just wasn't a good day to go out, so we went tonight to a new Japanese fusion place in town. The communal seating made it kind of loud but the rest of the environment was nice. I got spicy shrimp ramen and it was amazing. Mike got spicy noodles (a bit different since they were udon noodles and it wasn't brothy) and that shit was great too.

Not really related to Persona aside from the Ryuji thing but yeah, I will never turn down ramen from an actual Japanese restaurant (especially when egg is involved- I always think of that option in P3 where Makoto can steal Kenji's egg, heh). Those 30 cent ramen packets can fuck off, though.

New P5R info.

I know the original game was already long as hell, but I'm totally looking forward to this.

There's a P5R livestream going on right now with a new trailer, but I can't find a version of the trailer by itself on Youtube yet (I lost track of the tweet, damn it). Lot's of new stuff and you'll get more out of it if you know Japanese, of course. Between this and all the Fire Emblem stuff, my feed is lit.

Regarding a small detail in the trailer that most won't notice, that is being pointed out on Twitter:
Spoiler :
There's a zoomed in picture of the party's hp headshots and Goro is in the party with his Loki mask on. So, as many predicted/wanted, I guess he's playable beyond the casino in this version. Hell yeah. I liked his skill set, used him a ton in PQ2, and well, I guess I'm stanning Robbie Daymond characters now XD
E: Found it (doesn't show video here but should if you click on it).



E: The stuff in the spoiler tag got its own trailer. So yeah, the word is out, Goro is playable for longer and basically gets what is probably a redemption arc. I'm just curious if he's an actual wild card, or if he can only switch between Robin Hood and Loki. Maybe that new kid is his Velvet Room attendant? But he's hanging out in Mementos, which is weird.
