Will buy if they add online as an option for story co-op.


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

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Blazblue Central Fiction releasing on Steam on April 26th

 

New domain registrations hint at Persona 5 fighting game (Take this with a huuuuuge grain of salt, after reading the entire article and the comments, it appears there are misunderstandings everywhere.) It would be pretty cool to see a P5 Fighter though, especially when most of the P5 cast have their Phantom Thieves costumes and weapons looking like actual characters that should be in fighting games, unlike the P4 cast.

I'm still surprised they didn't release a ton of P3 DLC for P4DAN, but I guess they'd rather give it it's own game.

Wow, I wasn't expecting much from an article by a site called "oneangrygamer" but this article is really well written. There is a ton of supporting info and references, all the quotes are clearly laid out, the timeline is easy to follow, and the central argument is sound and well supported. Unlike the Kotaku articles that seem like opinionated blog posts. Kudos to them for keeping journalism integrity.

 

A little surprising is that the user metacritic score for P5 is lower than the reviewer one. Most of the games on metacritic keeps that trend, but I'd expect for a niche game like this to have a more supporting and direct community. 

 

Is it good?

I didn't really like it compared to the Senran Kagura games. It feels a lot more rigid, and lacks the crazy/chaotic nature of the SK games. The number of enemies on screen are a lot less, and special moves are less flashy. The game is also a lot more technical, which isn't a bad thing, requiring dashes, combos, and a system where you can track your enemy through air dashes. The art is really nice though. Overall, it's a lot more complicated than the SK games, and not just a simple button masher. Not a bad game, it might not be what you expect if you've played SK and Neptunia U/Blanc Zombies.

The backlash that P5's translation has been getting is absolutely bizarre. There's been a handful of weird lines and people are acting like Atlus is robbing people. Although it's interesting to note that the people who are really pushing that side of the argument defended Fire Emblem Fates translation.

 

You did get me curious about the reviews though so I checked the low ones and it's mostly just people that either have no interest in the genre, think that P5 looks dated or want to complain about the streaming restrictions (like saying the CEO should be fired for it).

Dating doesn't really have an effect on the story in any way. You get a scene on a certain day no matter how many you date or even if you don't date anybody. There's a usable (useless) item associated with that day and that item will carry over to NG+ but has no real bearing on anything. So if you date multiple, someone might take pity on you.

I didn't really see nothing bad about P5's localization. I honestly thought it was great. There are some questionable things. But overall, it is enjoyable. Just trying to stir up drama for dem clicks.
