Clearly Rise was best girl in Persona 4.

So this! Ann was there as blonde western/American waifu fodder for the Japanese players.

The girls in P5 were really awesome as a group though. That's why P4 feels so tired and played out. Those characters were lacking compared to both P3 and P5; specifically the girls, when Rise and Naoto are the most attractive ones. Kanji and those two were cool but the rest of the cast was pretty lackluster and often annoying. The girls in P5 were top notch by comparison. Makoto and Futaba rule and Haru was pretty cute too. Ann wasn't bad either for a distant fourth. Honestly I love Futaba's style and fashion. Ryuji was also the best partner when compared to annoying Yosuke and Junpei. They always set you up with that annoying hornball sidekick that the girls loathe, and start you from the very bottom of the social caste.

I'm really hoping for a P3 remake. Still think that one has two of the most attractive girls in the series.

These are just my opinions.


I haven't played enough P5 as yet to compare the casts, but P4 had a significantly better main cast and set of social links than did P3, when taken as a whole. There are a few specific exceptions, but overall the cast of P4 was just more likeable, which I'd say is the main reason P4 has a few more spin-offs than P3, despite P3 being a better game.

Thanks for the heads up about that 20% off PSN code. I guess it's a good thing I held off on that Little Witch Academia, the 20% makes it a bit more appealing.

 

I read a review of LWA that didnt sound promising. Like the 'anime' parts were great but the 'gameplay' parts sucked...like almost broken sucked.

 

Lol, didn't know fluffy death curls alluded to Haru, since she's probably the most innocent. But yeah, her English VA is amazing, and those lines were entertaining when she gets mad, but like cutesy adorable mad.

 

Did you listen to any of her lines in Mementos? I'm barely a weeb, but I think her archetype best fits as a "yandere."

I think that was my problem with P3 - I didnt really like the characters as a group. Individually, some of them were okay, but as a whole they didnt mesh. That has only been made more apparent by P4's and P5's teams. Heck, even the MC of P3 was kinda a dick. Still, ATLUS, give us our P3 Platinum. We've been patient long enough!

p3p edges out p4 slink wise.  Larger cast and most of p4 s links derailed not like some of 3's didn't crash and burn like junpeis.  But what little they did do  of junpeis background made me appreciate him more since he has a bad home life.

 

Shinjis link was awesome and mitsurus is significantly improved with femc.

nope. But as with most rhythm games, easy to navigate with a quick menu translation guide. Plus too much happening on the screen for me to actually read the lyrics. :lol:

 

But biggest win is getting the entire thing for 25 on disc.

I don't understand how those are just your opinions when everything you just said were literally facts. It's like you ripped that paragraph right out of my head. I couldn't agree more, since the P4 cast always irked me a little as being pretentious. The P5 teammates were definitely fantastic companions, and the synergy and dialogue were done really well. Up to the point where I wished it wasn't just the Protag and his harem, but like Ann and Ryuji could be a couple. And yeah, out of the 3 lame sidekicks, Ryuji imo was the most fleshed out and the one I could sympathize with the most.

 

But P3 has Aigis so that reigns supreme.

Speaking more about his Persona's Ice Moves.

 

I eventually dropped him since one of my Persona's already had Vorpal/Brave. Especially when I finally got Yoshitsune. In the end, team comp became Ann, Ryuji, and Makoto/Haru.

 

I never used Morgana, just using him as a spare healing bank. LOL

Got my P3/P4/P5 Famitsu DX Crystal triple pack today. It's very nice =D I didn't notice that the posters were going to be lenticular 3D and they look really good. It was a nice surprise :D

To be fair they fixed chie in golden so she can get better spells but yeah original chie was hot garbage.

 

I still used kanji over her though because of higher damage when an enemy is knocked over.  But I did put them both in the party occasionally for bosses.  yosuke yukiko yu naoto was otherwise my regular mob party in both version.

Bullet Girls Phantasia Limited edition preorder is up at Play-asia for $110 for PS4 or Vita.

I still wanna see some gameplay and how it performs on vita before I commit, but I'm probably gonna get the LE since I like Silvia's design and the mousepad looks nice.
