    Yeah, the last boss is incredibly cheap that way. He also sometimes confuses your teammates so they attack you... or you know, their stupid AI that you can't control has them do something stupid instead of what you want them to do.

    I tried the last boss 3 times, he cheaped out at the end every time, even after I'd put on wards to avoid the previous problems. I think I just turned it off when one of my team mates full healed him at the last second. Wouldn't be so bad if he didnt have the 12 other forms before getting to the real fight, or if you could keep going when your hero fell but the other characters are still alive.

    So I then just watched the ending on youtube.

    I haven't played 4 yet, but the general consensus seems to be 3 has the better characters, 4 has the better story and gameplay.

    I'm holding out for a PSP release of 4, since that'd be a great game for on the go.

Of course, I only watched somebody else play P4 with hilarious commentary and I played through P3 on easy mode (way easier than I expected), so those could both factor into my perceptions of the games.
    Well, I agree with you that P4 has a more interesting storyline, but I still I rank P3 a bit higher because it's harder than P4 IMO, and I for one appreciate challenging games. While both games are magnificent, but after I played through both of them I have to say that P4 was significantly easier than P3, mostly because you can give your team members direct commands and the fact that your party can't get tired or sick, and some other minor details. I know that giving direct commands is definitely an improvement as it eliminates false difficulty like stupid team member AI, but I kind of liked the added challenge.

    Anyways, I think you should consider playing P3 on normal or hard difficulty so you can fully enjoy this great game

    Wow, that's the kind of thing I expect from western releases, not Japanese ones.

    Oh Atlus, the one company I can truly rely on. Well, looks like Sony just sold another Vita. Uncharted was one thing, but that AND a P4 remake. Done. I'm sold.

    Neat. Still no intention of picking up a Vita, but I guess I can stop waiting for P4 to hit the regular PSP now. And the fighting game looks neat.


    But will Koromaru be playable.

    Arksys' stuff is plenty weird as is, so chances are better than one'd expect, I'd say.

    *I* wouldn't pass up the opportunity to play as a dog as awesome as Koromaru!

    I wonder how they'll incorporate the Personas into combat. Something like the stands in that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game?

    Is Chie doing God Hand in one of those scans!!????!!!

    My heart is not ready for this.

    I hope this game has all the persona users from both games.

    Jumpei, Chie, Kanji and Koromaru as my mains right now, never going to change that.

    Im so gonna love this! First an anime and now a fighting game! And it was just a year ago I played Persona 4.
    Ill probably main Yousuke and Kanji.
    I have'nt played Guilty Gear and Blaze Blue so im not that familiar with how similiar the fighting system will be. Were there any similarities between those games?

    Persona 2: IS is the best Persona game (though I think P4 is really close behind), so it would be cool if Persona 5 would take cues and try to mix things up. The way P2 game starts as just high school students and they gather more effective and older characters once they actually leave school and go on "the mission" could really switch things up social link-wise. It can still have a town, or city, as a hub and not be a high school.

    Moving from the city and hip-fucking oriented feel of P3 to the country murder-mystery of P4 was a good step (well shit everything was, P4 was every bit better than P3 by a big margin) and so was the more psychological development focus, but after that where do you go with the setting that can determine a fresh style?

    Making them high school student as fuck is the big money maker, sadly, so P5 is probably going to have elements of it, once more information is released, that sound redundant, since P3 and P4 are two different ends of Japanese contemporary culture aesthetics. It doesn't have... a whole lot of room on what it can do to stand out and be, unless they ditch the high school student thing, or really switch it up.

    Also, P4 fitan gaem fuk yah

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Also I really wish they didn't prioritize the Megami Ibunroku games so much instead of the Megami Tensei games.

    I get Persona is the big moneymaker, but fuck give me Shin Megami Tensei 4 alfuckingready goddamit I will murder you Atlus

    They were stylistically very similar but functionally rather different.

    Blazblue is more anime-themed, Guilty Gear is more out there. Blazblue is easier to pick up and learn, Guilty Gear is more hardcore.

    But both the game are essentially balanced, fast-paced 2D fighters with diverse, unique casts.

    Actually this isn't Arc System Works' first time to the adaptation rodeo. They have a bunch of other popular 2D fighting franchise adaptations to their name, including the Fist of the North Star fighter, Sengoku Basara X.

    But reports are saying the Persona team is going to be closely involved in this too, and that can only mean good, good things.

    I'm not one who buys a system for the sake of just one game, but this is highly tempting.I'll likely have a good long while to make up my mind, at least.
