If you've ever wanted to know what pure mania sounds like, look no further than the OST for Stretch Panic. I was listening to it earlier today and it reminded me how upbeat, yet unsettling that game is. Honestly I feel like if I listened for too long I might have a nervous breakdown or something, how did they make this music so...chaotic?

RE: What Are You Listening To?
Lot's of great music has been coming out lately.
First up is Twice with their new "What is Love?" comeback. I know pop music isn't super popular on these forums, but I think that the MV is worth watching just for all the great movie references! Also the song is catchy as hell, I think this might be my favorite era for them.
Next up is EXID. Great 90's throwback, LE's verses are great as always, I think Hyelin really stepped up for this comeback. All around, and awesome track.
EXID - Lady MV
After that is Egoist from Loona's 12 and final girl Olivia! Her color is black, and surprise, her animal is the wolf! I'm so psyched for all the members to be revealed, I can't wait for their official debut! Egoist is up there with Eclipse and Heart Attack for my favorite Loona song. I think that generally Loona has been a little weaker in the vocal department, obviously there are some exceptions, but I think that their biggest strengths are their visuals and their wide range of styles. Not every style gels with me, but I admire their dedication to giving each member a distinct identity within the group.
Olivia Hye - Egoist
And Here's Some Slightly Older, but equally good stuff!
WJSN - DCT Live (Ugh, this choreo and song are so good. I'm obsessed.)
CLC - Black Dress Live (Great comeback, I'm really glad their embracing the Hobgoblin concept again.)
RE: MMORPG recommendations?
I miss MMO’s. I haven’t gotten into one really since SMT online, it was so cool! But as for ones that sill exist, Phantasy Star Online 2 is a hoot if you patch it into English. Go for the rocket boots if you want a good laugh. The character customization is bonkers too. It’s coming to switch soon, so if you know some basic Japanese or have a guide that could be fun. I’m not sure if it will be one of the few games that they region lock, if not I plan on importing a copy some time down the line.
RE: What Are You Listening To?
So uh. Spoilers I guess. But I've been all up in those P3Dan and P5Dan remixes. I'm buying the OST's ASAP. These remixes are god-tier. I didn't think it was possible for these songs to get better, but they all have.
Spoiler(How they made this song happy is a mystery to me.)When Mother Was There
**How did they make this song better? How?! Whims of Fate
Get it Misturu-sempai! Ugh, best song for best girl. Burn My Dread
Please give us Minako. You cowards. Wiping All Out
No surprise that the best song in P3P has a positively godly remix. Way of Life
RE: Is a Persona 3 Remake Coming?
@dmcmaster I think you’re right about the P2 PSP version. I hope that Atlus stays true to that schedule and that something P3 related is coming. Honestly it might be Golden-esque remaster and I’d be happy with that. If they combined the content o FES and Portable it would undoubtedly be the definitive version of P3. The fact that FES and Portable are both unavailable for download on PS4 makes me wonder why they would make P3Dan before moving those games (or at least FES) over to the PS4 store. Because it stands to reason that a lot of people who will play P3Dan, won’t have played P3 before. A good junk of players will probably be P4, P4Dan, or P5 fans, and P3Dan might encourage them to play the originals. But it’s not available on PS4, so why miss out on such a clear opportunity for more sales of P3?
RE: Is a Persona 3 Remake Coming?
@bard91 I don’t know how much money exactly was poured into P3, but it’s clear that P3Dan is the larger undertaking. I just think that’s kind of suspect I guess? Because if they were doing another dancing game, P5 just makes more sense thanP3. There’s more people interested in P5, and because they can reuse models/environments from the base game it would be cheaper and faster to make. And if they decided to put P3Dan’s budget into P5Dan, they could have made new environments and such for that game. The fact that comparatively, more money and time is being spent on P3Dan then P5Dan or P4Dan, seems weird considering that the two of them are more sure successes. I just have to wonder what would make Atlus decide to make P3Dan, before P5Dan, if they didn’t have plans to do something with the IP. I just don’t think you make a whole separate game to promote your IP if your only plans for that IP is to have them be in another spinoff (PQ2) that is being sold on an entirely separate system, when the game it’s based on isn’t even available for purchase or download on current gen consoles. My heart says remake, but it could also be some kind of remaster or special definitive edition. Maybe up res-ing FES and adding the content from Portable? That would be interesting. Because while P3P is technically a PSP game, it does have 3D models for Tartarus and uses all the same environments. I could also see them tweaking Tartarus itself or something, adding a character, or working in some new story events/gameplay elements like P4Golden. So yeah, not sure a whole remake is coming, but I figure it has to be something. Dancing games aren’t as big of an undertaking as a JRPG, but it must have taken a lot of work to make all these new assets, get individual dancers/choreography for each character, and assemble the entire original voice cast. Atlus talks often about how much more care and resources are being put into P3Dan, than P4Dan, and that makes sense, they’ve learned from P4Dan, but why not put all that care and resources into your new, best selling IP. And furthermore to have to Dancing game based on your new IP be an afterthought rather than your original plan. If P3 was smaller scale or just DLC for P5Dan it would make sense. It just seems like a lot of work to put into an old game that people can’t even buy on a current gen console and Atlus can’t make much more money off of.
Sorry for how long this response was, I tend to type stream of thought style and I just kind of rambled on.
Is a Persona 3 Remake Coming?
Hey everybody, there's been a question plaguing my mind recently, and I'd like your input.
Is Atlus Remaking Persona 3?
With Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night on the horizon (at least in Japan), I couldn't help but wonder if Atlus was working on some project for Persona 3? I am unreservedly in love with Persona 3. It is my favorite game ever, so I fear that my suspicions might just be the ramblings of a mad woman.
Here's My Reasoning:
-Why make a P3Dan at all?: Persona 5 just came out. It is definitely more popular with P3, and it's the only Persona game that a lot of people have ever played. It just doesn't make sense to make a Dancing game for P3. At least not in conjunction with P5Dan.
-P3Dan Definitely Cost More to Make: Persona 5 is a somewhat current gen game, it has models and environments that can (and have) been reused or at least modified/been used as a base for new assets in P5Dan. There is nothing about any version of P3 that could be reused or modified for P3Dan. All of this stuff was made from scratch for this game, and its just an insane amount of work to put into a game that will probably sell less than its counterpart.
-The New Environments Look Amazing: The new environments that have been made for P3Dan look great. Honestly, some of them look better than the ones in P5Dan, and so much detail has been put into them. They've even gone so far as to make versions of in game environments that are explorable in VR (which very well may be the thing that finally makes me get VR). I know that is is present in P5Dan too, but like. Why? Why do this for P3? It is a PS2/PSP Game. In the original you couldn't even walk around in most of the rooms they're letting you explore in VR. This is such a big undertaking for a game much older than its counterpart. They didn't even do this stuff for P4Dan, the literal golden child of the Persona series.
-The Models!: I play Persona 3 Portable pretty much year round. So it's safe to say that I know the game very well, and to say that they've nailed the P3 cast, is a grave understatement. I cannot even put into words how incredibly faithful the team making this has been to the characters of P3. Every gesture, dance move, character action, and weird quirk is true to each character. The facial expressions are so perfect. I found myself moved to tears watching the reveal trailer of this game!
-Official Press Releases/Statements From Atlus: I've read pretty much every interview I could get my hands on, about this game and common thread is discussing how P3Dan is the first game that has had models that accurately reflect the original concept art they were based on, and how much of a big deal that is. It was also revealed that P3Dan came first and development and P5Dan was a bit of an afterthought. Following the success of P4Dan, Atlus started making P3Dan, and they decided to make P5Dan because they were still in the process of making P5.
What could Atlus' Plans Be?: The only other currently announced Persona game is Persona Q2. P5 has already been confirmed as a cast for that game. Persona Q's whole thing is being a crossover fanservice fest, but is P3 going to be in it? It seems unlikely to me, or at least it seems less likely than P4 or P2/1. Why pour so much effort into this game, if you aren't planning on doing something with the IP its based on? With P4 it made sense because P4 was the center of the Persona universe for many years, and a P5 dancing game would make sense on its own because it just came out and was extremely popular. But P3, what does it have going on? It's manga, movies, and stage plays have all long since ended. It doesn't have an anniversary coming up. Why are they making this game?!
-If They are Making a P3 Remake, P3Dan Makes A Lot of Sense: P4Dan did very well. Even if P3 is less popular, a lot of people would probably buy it because they liked P4Dan or because they like Rhythm games and good music. P5 is hugely popular and a lot of people's first Persona game. Riding the success of both P4 and P5 puts the music, characters, and world of P3 into a lot more hands then it would otherwise. If people play P3Dan then they'll be more likely to take interest in the game(s) that it's based on. But what would they do then? Persona 3/FES is a PS2 game and Portable is a PSP game, both out of print. Atlus won't make much money from people buying physical copies of those games. Furthermore, not many people want to buy PS2 or PSP games anymore. Then, what about digitally? P3FES is $10 on the PSN Store, and Portable is $20, but neither of them are available for download on PS4, the system most people will likely play P3Dan on, because so few people own Vita's! They'll make less money then a full priced game, which is further reduced because it isn't available on a current gen console. So what's there game? Well, here's my guess. The environments and models for P3Dan look so detailed and well done, that I wouldn't be surprised if Atlus reused them in a P3 Remake. If Atlus could capitalize on the success of P3Dan/P5Dan, to act as extra promotion for a P3 Remake, it would undoubtedly help the game's chances at success.
-P3Dan probably cost way more money and time to make. Entirely new models and environments had to be made for this game.
-P5 just came out, P3 came out in 2006. It is out of print, and isn't available for purchase on a current gen console (for any of its versions).
-P3Dan was in development before P5Dan.
-Atlus seems very keen on reminding people how exciting it is to see the P3 characters fully realized with modern technology for the first time.
-P3Dan benefits both from the success of P4Dan and P5, and it could act as extra promotion for a remake.
So, Am I crazy, or is there something there?
