Hmmmm


This shit for real? The Fuck? I played it for the first time a couple years ago when the translation patch came out and it's at least an 8, if not a 9/10. The game has held up very well. Much better than P1.

Can't argue with much in there.

Yea, P1 didn't hold up for shit, IMO. I played it about 1/2 way though and just couldn't get into it so I sold it. And somebody said it spiked in price. No fuckin' way. You've gotta be a liar. That was cheap for the longest time. No fuckin' way.

Almost preordered this, while picking up Move stuff from Gamestop.

I'm still on the fence: Having not really enjoyed the first Persona, paying $40 day one, and only to see it drop to $20.

My only drive to get this is having Persona, Persona 3 FES on the PS2/backlog, and having missed out on the other half of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. When EP was available/reprinted at Gamestop a long time ago.

Then feel free to look for yourself, because in fact it did spike up in price, insane as it sounds.

Makes no sense....at all. (about the price increase)

I can see why Eternal Punishment spiked up when IS was announced for remake (and the fan translation) but P1 no, that confuses me a lot.

Next week = Persona 2 goodness.

A month ago the cheapest new copies were in the $35 range - and there were a bunch of them. I guess all but the most overpriced ones sold. :lol:

Anyone else pick this up? The music is better than I was expecting, and goddamn this encounter rate really is that bad. Doesn't seem to be too hard though, so I'll probably stick it out.

Will post impressions later when i dig into it.

I preordered this in July and have Prime, and yet it's only set to be here tomorrow. Oh well, I'm still playing through Xenoblade anyway. I'll probably play through Solatorobo first though because I know I am going to love this game and thus won't be in a rush to resell.

LOL gamefly shows Now now now ... so i upgrade to get it shipped out and as soon as i pay 7 bucks to get another game out the game goes to VERY LOW

went into live chat with gamefly and they mostly told me to go #)*)*#$# off.

i think im done with gamefly as soon as my membership is up after what happened today..

also copied the picture before and after i extended my membershp and sent it off to the bbb


I can see something going from NOW To VERY LOW in hours but within seconds .. its like they were pushing this as NOW to get people to upgrade even though they know they had no copies left.


I will now have to wait for a sale... (wont pay more then 29.99 for it) or see if gamefly ships it tomorrow doubtful

Yeah my copy is sitting 3ft from me at the moment, cardboard case got a little crushed in transit. Listened to the music sampler, could've been better (unless they are releasing the OST locally, why not do a better selection?)

Now it can go with my copies of Persona 2 (IS & EP) for PS1 I have. I'll play it a bit tonight just to see what it's like compared to the other version.

Might be because the box the game comes in is getting damaged in the mail because they were fucktards who shipped it in an envelope instead of a box. My box is slightly damaged but I'm not one of those people who really cares. If I did care though, I would be pissed.

Me too, the bloody cardboard case will be put someplace anyway out of my way, so I really couldn't care less about that.

I played about two hours tonight (last time I tried it was my PS1 copy on an emu ages ago when I got IS) and was really intrigued by the story and all of the cross-over from other games
Spoiler
(which they really should have kept doing since it was cool)

If possible, I'd recommend installing the game data though, the load times started to annoy me after awhile. Otherwise I look forward to spending time playing it and its sequel in the near future (into DQ8 at the moment) lots of intriguing stuff in the game, that makes you want to keep playing (plus how cool is

Played quite a bit more and finished the first dungeon. Good game so far, though I'm still not a fan of the increased reliance on chatting with demons in order to get new Persona. You have to grind eager responses out of them to get more cards out of them to spend on summoning new Persona in the Velvet Room. It seems like it's a bit easier to get good results out of them, but it still feels like fighting is that thing you do when you get bored with contacting demons. I can see why this series took a break and was retooled for Persona 3, as it's very complex and tedious even for a monster-collecting JRPG on the PS1.

I do like that it's more of a sequel to the first game than 3 or 4 seem to be for the PS1 games.

This game doesn't make you grind for demons nearly as much as EP. You're fine with the story demons you get for most of the game.

Sucks you had such a hard time getting a hold of it and that Amazon did such a piss poor job of shipping it properly (and people were being too damn picky about a stupid cardboard box, I like mint condition things too, but for Fuck's sake...) and that you (and others I'd say) had such a hard time getting a hold of the game. Bet that didn't help the sales on the game, that's all Atlus needs is a hallmark title of one of their most popular series not selling well due to cardboard box issues...:roll:

But at least you have a copy now and that's what is important. :)

Almost 20 hours in and loving it so far. The story & characters really are that good. Encounter rate hasn't bothered me much because I contact instead of battling about half the time. Truthfully, the dungeons would be really short if the encounter rate wasn't what it was.

Somewhat unfortunately, it sounds like they cut the Climax Theatre Quest-Creation feature out of the US version. It's not a major loss, since it was something that was apparently added for the PSP version, and its removal doesn't detract too much from the package. As the blog post above points out, more unfortunate is that Atlus is sticking with the "Well, even though it was in the Japanese version, we didn't promise it..." when the bigger sin is that they didn't say anything about this removal before release. Even the topic on their own forums regarding the feature was posted on 9/2, while AtlusAram and the other Atlus employees didn't respond until today, 9/28, to confirm the feature's removal.

As I said before, the removed content is unfortunate, though not a deal-breaker. How they went about its removal (silently, with no transparency whatsoever), however, is another issue.

When the PSP port of Persona 2: Innocent Sin was announced earlier this year, Andriasang unveiled a few new features added specifically to the port, including the Climax Theatre, complete with new subquests and the ability to download extra missions and create your own quests.

Sound kind of cool? Well, the subquests are still there, but Atlus removed the DLC and mission creation from the North American localization and neglected to tell anyone. The official explanation can be found at Atlus' forums, which includes these quotes:

"As has been the case with other similar games and their custom content features, a number of challenges—technical and otherwise—prevented the inclusion of the basic creation/customization functionality within the Climax Theatre for the North American release of Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP System."

"And, before people ask, no, we really can't go into the "why"s and "what happened"s here, but it was not a decision made lightly, and it was not a case of something being removed just because we're the Big Bad Publisher that hates fun."

"The only thing I want to add here is that this [quest creation being in the NA version] isn't true. At no point from the NA announcement to the release was the Quest Creation aspect mentioned in any press releases, Faithful blasts, or website updates."

This does little to clarify the matter. Functionally, it's probably not all that big of a deal, because many players probably wouldn't have used it anyway. (I know I wouldn't.) It's certainly nothing approaching the Snow Queen quest from the original Persona, which was a huge part of the game and was hacked out of the original English PSOne release, but included properly in the PSP version. As noted by them, technically the quest creation was never announced as being part of the NA version, but Atlus should probably realize that a good number of their fans read import blogs like Siliconera and Andriasang, heard about it there, and assumed that it would make it in (like the forum poster that brought up this issue!) But the biggest concern is that Atlus USA did nothing to say contrary up front, thereby committing the sin of omission. It's a no-win situation if they can't include it, but they preferred to go the skeezy route by letting people buy it and find it missing, rather than deal with a minor fan uprising before release and having them swear off purchasing it (though they likely still would've bought it anyway.)

Holy Christ, Atlus pulled this stunt?! Of all companies?! I wouldn't mind that much but they didn't fucking tell anyone until people were wondering where it was. Wow Atlus. Just. fucking. wow.

Xseed and Aksys are apparently the only two reputable localizers left in the business. Even Sega was more upfront about Yakuza 3 being cut apart.
