Is there alot of anime cutscenes?

Does the game have an emo feeling?
Considering the whole "shooting to the head" thing)

Also how did you obtain the US copy of P3?



- There are quite a few anime cutscenes.... from what I played so far... at least.

- Not EMO at all...

- I'm really Paris Hilton in disguise.

In your opinion, is this game worth buying at full price or should we wait for a price drop.

awesome. i have been looking forward to this game for so long. i don't think i'm even going to mind that i can only control one person. from the videos posted on youtube, they don't look completely helpless, or retarded. i can't wait!

You can see your enemies before you attack them (or vice versa?)

Fucking sold, instantly.

The quality of the game looks sky high too, Atlus went all out on this one.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

There are no random battles at all.

You can initiate the combat... You hit X to do an attack while you're on the play field... if your attack hits your enemy before they touch you you will have the "ADVANTAGE" and attack first.... vice versa if the enemy touches you first.

This game is great so far... I'm liking the mix of both styles it shows... :)

Is this like SMTIII where the demon will learn 8 skills, then you have to forget something when you want to learn something new? Because looking at the FAQs, it doesn't look like anything learns more than 8 skills. Not having to forget skills would be a plus in my mind. That and Shoji Meguro.

What deluxe version?

There is only one version of the game and they will all include the soundtrack / artbook, and that's the only thing I see on NIS's store... and I'd rather not pay shipping fees and just get it from Amazon or Gamestop.

Yep, only one version.

I'll probably use my Amazon Prime to get it with no tax and free two day shipping, since I don't like shopping at EB / GS if I have a choice.

Hey, even better!

I'll have to throw down a preorder next week when I'm in my new place. Hopefully it'll still be $46.99 :lol:

That' saving a good $7 over the retail one since I'm not paying tax either.

EB's whole "ZOMG PREORDER MADNESS" thing with Persona 3 almost tricked me. I was going to preorder it from them so I could get the soundtrack, but since legitimate retailers will have that as well... Fuck them.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

About 20 hours in... I'm really diggin' it... some ppl might find it a bit repetitive but the whole way you progress through things is unique enough for me at least, that I keep going back to it.

This has got to be one of the best mixes of RPG/SIM in recent memory... I'll try to get some non spoiler gameplay/cutscene vids soon....

hope a better online pre-order comes up. I don't have to have this one on launch day (since I'll probably be working through DDS2), so screw EB/GS and their "bonus offer" of stuff that already comes packed in the game.

I'm pretty excited for this. Next month for me seems to be Ninja Gaiden and this. Nothing else big that I can think of coming out next month for PS3/PS2 since LAIR got delayed I believe.

I really like the idea of doing stuff in school and not fighting all the time.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Has the story held up well? One of my biggest pet peeves is getting 2 hours of story, then just running around for 4 or 5 hours with nothing then repeat. When I heard about the sim/rpg format I was a bit scared that this would be the case.

How different is the game depending on the relationships you form? I'm curious just how it affects gameplay. I've read there's around 20 or so interactions you can have?

There are 22 different 'social links' in the game...

Basically you date/befriend a person connected to a certain persona type, that is a social link... once you have established a link it will grant you bonuses as you 'fuse' Personas.... For example...

Yuko is the social link of the Strength Persona. When fusing persona cards and the end result is one of the Strength type, however strong your social link/relationship is with Yuko will be added in as a level up bonus to your person that you create.

Hope that wasn't too confusing :(
