Honestly, you're not going to get a lot of difference in quality of combat between any of the versions of P3 or P4, though I don't remember if they'd implemented party direct commands by FES or not. 

That's the whole reason those that prefer P3P prefer it over FES though - FES doesn't have it

 

For what it's worth, I played Persona 4 Golden up until a mid-game boss, couldn't beat it, dropped the game for Persona 3 Portable then played all the way through it, then returned to P4G afterward and beat that. I had no problem with P3P's overworld being 2D, still loved it and prefer the game overall to P4G.


Now for the picture of the day:

I liked P3P but having played 4 and 5, having no cutscenes and completely cutting some of the animation sequences really doesn't do the game justice. Having played both versions, I think some of the most important moments in the game are lost out on because they don't have the cutscenes or 3d models. Still a great game, and no doubt the combat alone is a reason to pick it over the PS2 releases, but I still prefer FES.

I could help you with the 50 throw techs if you want, it'll only take like a round to get. I was able to get it with Taiga as the enemy, while backing myself into the corner. She goes for throws a lot if you keep blocking her attacks.

 

The other harder trophy is 500 reflective guards, since the CPU never wants to attack you sometimes. Just spamming a multi-hitting move should be easy.

Managed to get them. I only need 10 million damage now lol

 

I cheesed Survival Mode with Selvaria and her Lance Blasts. :lol:

Maybe I just overoptimize my MC personae, because past level... 15 or 20 or so, my party's basically useless outside of all out attacks and occasional cleanup duty in every version of Persona 3 or 4, direct commands or not. Fights rarely seem to last past the first turn. That being the case, I'd rather have non-combat benefits in those games than moderate QoL combat changes.

I played vanilla P3 I think until about the blackout boss fight.  Put it down, played P4G, then started P3P and played to completion. Perhaps in my mind, since I had explored so much of the 'overworld' in vanilla P3, I never felt like I missed anything in P3P. Having the cutscenes VN style is a minus, but not a huge one. I started playing FES, and just got distracted. I dont think any of the versions is the *definitive* one to play, they all have their plus and minuses, none of which are game-breaking. I think it's more personal choice than anything.

 

If you want to see the animated versions of the cutscenes, I think they are all on youtube anyway.

I can't blame people for not liking p4 as much since they took out alot of the good things from 3.  the money and exp shuffle cards, dungeon commands so you could sick your party members on enemies.  They did get rid of the awful reaper though being a randomly spawning enemy while exploring so that was a major plus at least.


Currently on the look out for a decent price on Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.

The story and characters are also worse in P4


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.

couldn't agree more.  I always thought P4 was a bit overrated, mostly in the characters department. 

 

Naoto and Rise were pretty cool though.

Is this just a commercial? Kiki's is actually my favorite Ghibli movie.  I find it odd because the animation is kinda dated compared to the rest of the collection I own.

couldn't agree more.  I always thought P4 was a bit overrated, mostly in the characters department. 

 

Naoto and Rise were pretty cool though. 

I also agree. I couldn't stand most of P4's characters, Rise was okay, and it took P4G's Marie for me to actually like one. Although my favorite is Labrys from P4A if that counts.

 

I think P5 had the best cast though, even more so than P3 (but maybe it's because I played most recently), but I couldn't even find a character is disliked, not even Ryuji.

 

 

 

Also wanted to add to someone mentioning The Answer in P3 FES before. Honestly, 99% of it is a waste of time, but Metis is really cool, and the ending is pretty good, and it's the epilogue of P3 that most fan's needed. Although the definitive ending of P3 is actually in Elizabeth's story in P4A.

 

So my advice to skip the terrible and long hours of dungeon grinding is just to watch the beginning and ending cutscenes on Youtube. There's a lot of character development for Aigis that ties into P4A too. I'd even go on to say, if Persona 3 was like FFXIII, then The Answer would be XIII-2, and P4A/P4U is Lightning Returns. So definitely look into that, since Persona 3's story doesn't end with the first game/P3P. There's a whole lot you miss if you only play P3P.

I'd say story is worse, but characters are better.

Though P3's main character beats P4's hands down.

Miraculously, this was still available. Grabbed it.

I've, uh, never been in a closed beta test before. Are there some sort of actual responsibilities beyond reporting weird bugs or whatever? The legalese in the agreement is pretty thick for my tastes.

Amazon warehouse deals had DQ VIII for the 3DS for $24 shipped so I decided to bite. I figured might as well grab it now before I forget about it again. I been wanting to play that for years now anyway (even though it's going to be backlog).

There is no uncertainty as to fan interest. Nintendo just needs to green light this.
