Honestly, the best thing to do is to do your trips into the TV world in one go, giving you more time to socialise and build up Social Links. This becomes a lot easier to do when you meet Kitsune.

I've had to stagger my TV world trips over a couple of days or so (up to now) because I've eventually hit a wall where I run out of replenishing items. I'm sure this will be a less-frequent occurrence once I have a bit more cash under my belt.

I'll be getting this as soon as I finish what i'm playing at the moment. Got 2 big RPGs on the go so I want to wait until I have time to focus on just this. I've not played a Persona game before so I don't really know what to expect although it looks amazing Smile

It's really unlike anything I've played before. I'm a sucker for RPGs set in the modern day, and RPGs set in conventional settings. I can't see how anyone wouldn't like it. Smile

It really is. Tbh, it's actually quite surprising - despite "modern" Persona's success, nobody seems to have tried to copy it at all (besides Cherry High Comedy Club or whatever that small PC game is, but even then that only copies the Social Link side of Persona anyway). You'd think there'd be at least some clones by now.

Inventiveness-wise, it most commonly reminds me of The World Ends With You, despite being nothing at all like it. Not a bad thing at all.

My only real gripe thus far is that the dungeon crawling is a little dull, though I think that's more a side effect of how wonderful everything else is.

That was definitely the case with me mid-way through the game. I was eager to blast my way through the dungeons to open up the next chunk of story.

However, towards the endgame, I became obsessed with trying to fuse the best Personas to use. There's a lot of subtle nuances to the fusion system, like inheriting abilities that a Persona wouldn't ordinarily be able to use. It's possible to make your very first Persona endgame worthy. Although, from what I hear, that's a lot easier in Golden because of the skill cards, right?

Ah, so the skill cards are new? How did you stumble upon new Personas in the original game, then? They seem to be exclusively available from Skill Cards and the fusion of your existing monsters here.

To be honest, I've messed with the Fusion system without really learning about cause and effect up to now. Besides my Inazagi and my (later obtained) Jack Frost, I've basically ditched a flagging Person and Fused a brand new one that's a closer level to my current cap. Am I playing the game right here? It's easy to fall back upon the 'train a winner' mentality from the Pokémon games, though I do sense that Personas are a little more disposable.

No, the cards with the Personas on them were in Persona 4 Vanilla, I'm meaning the cards that can teach your Personas a single skill. Or am I completely making up a game mechanic I thought was in P4G?

Pretty much, although I'd ditch Izanagi if I were you. He's not actually all that great. I'd never spend too much time with a Persona, save the endgame Personas. Once they've learned all their skills, and if you can fuse a Persona of the same arcana but of a higher level, then there's really no point in keeping that Persona. Even if your current Persona is of a slightly higher level than the higher tiered Persona, the chances are after Social Link XP through fusing, the new Persona will easily dwarf the old one's level. That's how I played at least.

Ah, I thought that could be the case. The benefits of Social Link seemed to great to really bother training an old Persona up from scratch. And I'm not much of a fan of Inazagi really, but I love Jack Frost! <3

I've been slightly distracted by Plants vs. Zombies (again!) this week, but I'm hoping that my holiday next week will allow me to catch up with all the games I've been badly juggling recently.

This seems like as good a place as any to ask this. But speaking as someone who hasn't played Persona 4 but is considering buying a Vita mostly to play it, how does it stack up to Persona 3 in terms of things such as tone? I can see it looks like it'll have a much lighter tone (the cast not shooting themselves with blanks to use Persona's kinda tips me off to that) but how does it stack up in other areas like characters, plot, and so on?

I haven't played the original to be able to compare, unfortunately. I'm jolly well enjoying the game they've given us, though.

P4's tone is much lighter than 3's, definitely the lightest tone in the whole series. It has it's serious moments, but for the most part it's very much happy-go-lucky. P3 has the better plot imo, but P4 has the better cast.

Sounds like Persona 4 will be a fun game then. A lighter tone would be nice to be honest, and if the cast is still strong then there won't be a problem. I'll check it out then, cheers guys.

Well time to bring back a old thread (almost went for the late to the party thread) as I've bought Persona 4 Golden which some of your guys fav RPG.

EofGizmo has been telling me about the game and due to how long go it came out, I know a few things but any tips or stuff I should be doing when my VITA turns up.

Enjoy your first playthough - there's a way to go through the game and get the best ending in NG, but there's no point in following a guide for your first run through. Have your "True Ending" run be in NG+. Enjoy the ride, and stay away from Marie.

I don't know if I will play twice maybe if really good as people say, hope it's not been over hyped as had someone think that about Wicther III who's playing at the moment at work. I'm mainly playing P4 due to what people have said and the hype I've built up for Persona 5 based of this game.

What's wrong with Marie as I saw Athrun also not a fan but I like the look of her from searching the character.

Turn the difficulty down, there's no reason to have it high and you can't change it once you've started. That's a hell of a commitment if like me you hit a wall.

I'd be getting into spoilery territory if I talked about her in-depth.

So just play on easy then, what about trophies, aren't they affected by the difficulty?

No difficulty trophies and you'd need a guide to balance everything anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much about them.

Easy mode?  Game's a cakewalk on easy!  Go Normal at the very least!  Game's no fun if you don't sweat during a few of the bosses, heck I found Normal almost too easy when I did it, although I had played Persona 3 about four times so I had an idea of what I was doing from the start with regards to fusing Persona's.  

Normal's the best for newcomers in my opinion, gives em a taste of the good ol Atlus difficulty without being overly brutal with it.

As for Marie, without going in to spoilers I'll just say she's everything wrong with her archetype.

Nope, it's not Laughing I got stuck on the 5th dungeon with no way of moving forward without grinding. There's no reason to play it on a high difficulty because it isn't a game of skill. You die by the numbers.

I'm still convinced this would be a better game without dungeons or battles altogether. I gave up on the game because the dungeon I was in was just so much of a slog (that and trying to get rare random drop items for side quests is super dumb).
