Persona 5 (PS4/PS3)



  • @bard91 Not having a Twitter seems to really help. Plus, I don't really frequent gaming news sites often and all the channels I subscribe to on YT are fairly considerate when it comes to spoilers.

    Jealous about taking a whole week off though! I wanted to do the same but someone else from department beat me to the punch as they're going out of town during that week and there's only 3 of us here as it is. Still, I should have enough time to soak in a bunch of the game, I'm hoping.



  • @SabotageTheTruth the one possible spoiler I may have seen was from twitter, thanks some funny guy, but I barely use twitter myself, and I myself have been very selective on who to follow, and I've actually had to use a chrome extension to block videos with Persona in the title in youtube, since I kept getting P5 videos from the JP version on my feed.

    In any case the potential spoiler that I saw was something that can sort of be guessed based on the marketing of the game, so I don't think it was too bad.



  • Hopefully this thread stays safe. Only time will tell.



  • This is the game I've been most excited for the past couple of years. I'll gladly shill for it and buy the DLC costumes.



  • a new english trailer, and a new character trailer, I'm not watching these, but for anyone that's interested. I'm not embedding the videos to avoid any additional info for those that don't want it.

    An interesting question related to these, what will everyone be playing the game on first, english or japanese? I've had a big internal debate about this, and I believe that I've settled for english.



  • @bard91 My first playthrough will be in English. While I'm not too thrilled with some of the voice acting I've heard for this game, I'm giving it a chance to win me over. I believe P3 and P4 had great English Dubs so I have high standards that P5 needs to meet. But hey, the Japanese audio will still be there.



  • First impressions are out, this one is from Kotaku (same reviewer)

    In the wake of Breath of the Wild turning out to be one of the greatest video games ever made, I have some bad news for your time and wallet: Persona 5 might be up there, too.

  • @DizBomber completely agreed while not 100% on the english voices, I'm giving it a chance

    Ugh. Getting tired of all these amazing games already.

    lol



  • @TokyoSlim I feel you! Is it too much to ask to have at least one bad game we don't have to buy this year?



  • i'M SO PUMPED! I'm not as strong as those on media black out, I kept up with all the updates and watched a couple of hours Japanese gameplay. I know a couple major plot points, but I don't know the whole story.



  • I'll be spending a lot of money on DLC (costumes) it seems, sucks that it won't be available all at once.

  • @bard91 Eh.... I'm kinda disappointed that those costume packs are gonna each be 7$
    I hope there will be a discounted pack.

    I love how the swimsuit one is free...

    Good thing I have no interest in the Switch or BotW then. Will be nice to play a solid JRPG again.



  • This is my 2017 goty but I think it'll be a hard fight with how botw and now nier are reviewing. everyone that owns a ps4 and ps3 needs to get this game even if you haven't played the previous persona games. it'll have a awesome story and top tier soundtrack confirmed. Been waiting for this one ever since the p5 reveal.



  • Im curious if anyone can confirm are these just cosmetics or do they also come with soundtrack or have a gameplay element to them.

    Also will this game have option for 4k on pro?



  • @MSBi I beliebe some of them come wirh soundtracks, and to my knowledge there's no PS Pro enhancements



  • So first review is out, and to be fair it is from PS magazine UK, it is good.

    Are you sitting down? Deep breath. This is it. This is the JRPG, in every possible way. There’s effortless charm, thrilling turn-based combat and a core conceit that perfected in this latest series entry makes for an always engaging adventure that redefines the genre for the modern era. It’s a game of relentless,
    uncompromising quality. And in everything it does, it goes a step further. It does it in style. It’s Persona 5’s little flourishes, its calling cards, that inspire goose pimples at every turn. The pop and wiggle of the monochromatic menu options, flashing into new formations at every button press. Loading screens sneakily disguised by the sweep of a black cape or the bustle of Tokyo. Subplots unfolding in street chatter.



  • @bard91
