Got Persona 3, just started it and I'm gonna play through a good amount tonight(hopefully)... haven't played through an RPG in awhile(Dragon Quest VIII), so I hope this one is good... :)

I've been looking forward to it though... if anyone has any questions on the game please fire away... I'll try to answer and post my impressions soon.

Real quick... about the start of the game...

Okay after about an hour of play, I'm happy to say I'm enjoying it... again I really like the art direction/look and feel of this game... The English voice acting is better than I thought it would be and the cut scenes are really well done...

The game is VERY Japanesey compared to most RPGs that make it out here... I'll be devoting as much time as I can to this game within the next week...

Has anyone played through the Japanese version by any chance?

Only diff between Easy/Normal is exp gain and generally 'stronger' enemies.

Also, I think I've seen MarkMan state that he's a reviewer, just don't know for whom.

I hope Persona 3 is as good as Persona 2 when it comes to characters and storyline.. Persona 2 had one of the best stories in any RPG I've played. Give us good news MarkMan. :)

I need to go pre-order this later. I tried to do that a week ago and the EB clerk had no idea what I was talking about...

The game has Shin Megami Tensei prefixed to it, so make sure they search for that.

Yeah, I thought about it afterwards.

FYI if your all intrested post here http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=141775

I brought up the little known Shin Megami Tensei anime that never made it to the US and sadly never got fansubbed as far as i'm aware.

Maybe if we hope really hard they will make a Persona anime.

I am really interested in this game, the grapnics are my kind of style.

Plus I hear that a large portion of the game occurs outside of dungeons, which pleases me.

Hmm, how long into the game until you fight your 1st battle? Wondering if the game takes a while before it gets going.

Doubt I'll be finished with DDS1 + 2 by the time this comes out, but I'm going to get it soon afterwards.

I'm going to throw out a question for the OP:

How is the flow of the game? My main gripe with action RPGs is the transition to battle screen/reward tally at the end of a fight bogs down the gameplay. Games like Kingdom Hearts avoid this but feature hordes of boring enemies.

Random dungeons + only control one character = me scared to purchase. I'm looking forward to any impressions you have, MarkMan.

Wait, you only control one character, as in the others are auto controlled?

Ugh...

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.

I really liked Persona 2...although I never finished it...cant remember why.

Only half the game involves dungeons, the other half is supposed to be Bully-esque class schedules.

You know, I keep forgetting about the whole 'control 1 character' thing. I didn't like it in Dragon Quest IV, and I can't imagine liking it now.

man I wanna play this game so much, but my rpg backlog is 3 games strong in regards to this particular game.

Persona 3 is like my reward for finishing those other 3 games!

Alright, a few more impressions... I'm a few hours in... the game has a good mix of dungeon crawling and social interaction type of gameplay... I'm really enjoying it... I'd play it more actually if it wasn't for all this Tekken 6 news being released lol.

The battle system is good, although as said earlier, you only really take control of the main character...

Voice acting is impressive for this title, but that's just my two cents...

More later...

Does the rest of your party require babysitting? Or can they make decent choices on their own?

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?
