I seriously don't understand how people can put up with the music in Persona. I'm playing Nier and Persona right now and while I like their attempts at music, the amount of repetition drives me insane. I can't stand the music in either game now.

I think I got South Park: The Stick of Truth for free.  I'm pretty sure my pre-order for Fractured but Whole was cancelled long ago (without my input).  Yet I got a message yesterday about it, and now it's playable.

 

definitely, "everybody's golf" sounds like some wii shovelware title

The original Japanese title, since the PS1 days, has been Minna no Golf, literally, "Everyone's Golf," and that's what it's been called there and in Europe.  For the American release, they changed the title and often turned the characters into ugly American stereotypes.  Keeping the original name, and hopefully the original characters, will be an improvement.  Hot Shots Golf is dead.  Long live Everybody's Golf.  The real shame is that it took this far into the PS4 life cycle to get it.

 

I just wish the characters were better. I ultimately think that's why P4 is a better game then P5....the P4 characters were just so much more likeable and I actually gave a shit about them....most the P5 characters are forgettable.

You guys are just attached to P4.  When I played P4, I missed the characters from P3!  I'd imagine you guys must have started with P4, where I played through them all.  There are people who still think Persona 2 is the best one with the best characters.  To say Persona 4 is the best JRPG of all-time is a little over the top.  The characters in P5 are fine, and the dungeons are vastly improved.  The complaints about being forced to sleep and linearity are pretty valid, though. They've certainly all been extremely slow-moving games, and P4 had one of the slowest setups of any game... ever...  You got to learn to love it.

I downloaded it and played it immediately.  Did you get the message where it said to renew your licenses or something like that? Try that?  So in your download list (on PC and/or PS4--I'd check both), there is nothing to click to download it?

pfft

 

I seriously don't understand how people can put up with the music in Persona. I'm playing Nier and Persona right now and while I like their attempts at music, the amount of repetition drives me insane. I can't stand the music in either game now. 

I'm with you there.  Some of the music is good but the issue that the tracks are so short and loop constantly gets old fast.  They still haven't learned that you spend too much time in areas for the game for the music to be so short.  Yet there's a dozen or so tracks that are only played once which could have been put into an areas rotation so then at least you wouldn't be hearing the same song a little less.  

 

Considering the mc's in 3 wore headphones and had an mp3 player you'd think they'd set it up to let you listen to radio music, mc's music or your own stuff in game.


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

Regarding Persona 5...

 

Because I'm already stretching for time on the 80+ hours required to go through the game once, and the fact that it is nearly impossible to max out all the confidants in one try without assistance, I'm using a spoiler-free guide from gamefaqs to determine my schedule, which has kept me from experiencing the aggravation of having Morgana tell me to go to bed at night

 

The guide reveals very little in terms of plot, and leaves you with very minimal assistance for the dungeons and mementos, other than how deep into them you should go on a certain day, when you should send calling cards, and with which characters you need to interact to open up the missions.

 

Some might feel that this spoils the experience, but for me personally, I've been having a blast with the game and marathoned through quite a bit of it during spring break. I wouldn't mind stressing about my choices if I had the time for a full NG+, but with so many games on the backlog, I just wanted to get the majority of the game's content in one playthrough without having the story spoiled for me, which is the main draw for me in the Persona games.

 

As for the music, I love the soundtrack. The main vocal jazz theme is nice to chill to. Love the Velvet Room theme. The battle theme and the victory fanfare are memorable. The dungeon themes... not so much. The themes are simple and repetitive, but very fitting to the context / environment / theme to which they are tied.

 

The art direction is out of this world. I loved the bright neons of Persona 4, and the bold black and red going on in Persona 5 is explosive. Characters are highly stylized and well written, even if some do fall into the anime / jRPG cliches. It's been difficult for me to even remember the names of the characters from the recent / modern Final Fantasy, Tales, and Star Ocean entries, but I can actually remember most of the confidants from Persona 5. 

 

Combat is a huge step above the previous entries in the series, as are the dungeons.

 

I don't know if I can agree with the people who are saying that P5 is the best jRPG ever, but I can say that for this generation of consoles so far, it is the best jRPG.

I'm a sharp shiftah..

 

Even worse is that I can't turn off the music in Persona without turning off all other sound. At least in Nier, there was music volume.

I don't mind the music...it's pretty good (especially the evening music...great stuff). What drives me nuts is every time I hit an enemy's weak point and Morgana says that's awesome senpai or something like that. You don't have to do it with each and every knockdown!

Does he say that in English? I haven't noticed it in Japanese. I just imagine Pikachu talking when Morgana speaks (same Japanese voice actress).

N++ Ultimate Edition is a huge update coming to the game soon and it's a huge update that doubles the content in a game that already had over 2000 levels in it:

 

What’s new in the Ultimate Edition update? So much. It’s so big, it’s like a second N++. The Ultimate Edition has taken over a year to create and perfect, and we’ve added 60 dynamic new colour schemes, new levels, new ninja headbands, new secrets and more.

 

The Ultimate Edition doubles the size of N++, bringing the total to an unprecedented 4340 hand-crafted, finely-tuned levels. Play through the lengthy and challenging Solo campaign, or with friends in Couch Co-op and Race (Competitive). We’ve also added a brand new mode, called Hardcore, which changes the rules of the game and lets you see Solo in a whole new light. Hardcore mode is all about pure skill and grace under pressure, a true challenge for Ultimate ninjas!

I'm curious how bad the voice acting must be in English too. I've never heard Morgana refer to anyone as senpai in the Japanese audio, and the general quips from the team members haven't been noticeably annoying for me.

Yeah weird for sure. "Hot Shots" has been a brand name everyone would recognize going back to the Playstation One. Man, I wish they would patch trophies into Hot Shots Golf - Out Of Bounds & Hot Shot Shots Golf Fore (and port to PS4).


Hot Shots was always called Everybody Golf in other territories. I've been buying European gaming magazines and I've always seen it written that way.

CoD needs to die a slow death.

Based on nothing but the title, this year's COD is the most excited I've been for the franchise in years.  Of course, I have no idea if i'll really care about it in the end.  All that being said, Activision clearly needs to handle the brand better, so hopefully they are figuring it out.  I doubt it.

Has anyone played the PC version of Marvel Heroes Omega and know what it takes to unlock extra characters? How much play time/game money does it take to unlock each character? Will all the characters from these 'founder packs' be unlockable by playing the F2P version once it's officially released? (except the characters with exclusive conditions noted at the bottom of Frisky's post)

 

Basically, is there any reason to buy one of these founder packs now besides getting access to the closed beta?

I was curious and watched a youtube video.

 

Spoiler

 

I get different impressions about how they refer to some people in English vs Japanese also. They refer to "Boss" as "Master", and I get more of the feel they're referring to skill mastery, and not what I'd associate with the word boss.

 

I don't hear them refer to people as senpai etc. There's a lot of scenes where they say to drop honorifics. In those situations, it was just dropping the -san.

 

Lady Ann also sounds weird. Morgana says Ann-dono, the same honorific Kenshin uses when addressing Kaoru.

(except the characters with exclusive conditions noted at the bottom of Frisky's post)

 

Basically, is there any reason to buy one of these founder packs now besides getting access to the closed beta?

There are a big variety of ways to unlock characters. They've had simple "Log In from X to Y date and get Z for free" events, B1G1 events, and sales on the in-game currency, characters, packs, and all that. That's how I've gotten the half dozen or so characters I have on PC despite only playing with Captain America because he's my favorite of the bunch and very similar to the Crusader from Diablo III. There is a currency in-game that you earn by just playing it that lets you redeem for a free character item that doesn't take all that long, though I've only played it on PC for about 10 hours and that isn't purely just playing the game. If they support it in the same way, there shouldn't be much issue unless you're obsessed with getting everything.

 

The other thing is that the PC version gives you access to about 5-10 characters to start trying out up to level 10 before you're forced to pick one to unlock for free, so assuming they continue all of this stuff, you're probably not going to be going in blind so easily. If you're going to jump on a founder's pack, it would probably be a good idea to look up wikis that explain their play style and such so you can have a good idea of who you're buying into since there's no F2P option at the moment.

 

As for straight money conversion, I believe most characters are in the $5 to $10 range with the popular MCU characters being up to $20. I can go look in the PC version to double check if you want. Costumes are similar in that MCU costumes for popular characters are ridiculously expensive and are for crazy people that care more for cosmetics than pure gameplay.

 

Any characters you get with the Founder's Packs will carry over, along with all of the other stuff, so you'd be mainly paying to get in now. You also get Iron Fist and a free outfit if you buy all of the packs, which is only for crazy people with more money than time. There will be a save wipe for progress near the end of the closed beta, but that should be it for what you'll lose if you get in now. There's more info in the Q&A if you want to read up on everything they've announced.

I don't think he says senpai I think he just says Joker. But he says the same line just about each and every time I hit an enemies weakness. Doesn't change the fact I wish they would just not say anything or have to choice for no one to say anything.

Pretty sure Fuuka did it in P3 as well. I don't know why it annoyed the heck out of me...guess cause the last dungeon I was in I got in a lot of fights...think I went up 7 or 8 levels haha. Just got old to me. I much prefer 1 More flashing on the screen like SMT IV.
