@Th3solution I'd actually say play it on hard, on normal it is a cakewalk and basically beats itself. The combat system is solid but EXTREMELY dated, so you might want to really have your decision have a strategic impact and high stakes to make it pop and come alive imho.

Good to know that the final boss let me win on my first go.

One shotted by the casino boss last night on her final form. Open mouthed after a great battle I switched off persona 5. I have been so unlucky this run with 5/6 one shot deaths to the main character, I just don't understand why I cant revive him. Grrrrrr.

@kyleforrester87 haha, beat that boss this afternoon in the end.

Then sat through over an hour of nonesense which was fun but flawed.

Spoiler territory!
Dont get me wrong I clicked what Fatuba was doing with the phone at the time although I totally missed the doughnut morgana thing. But blanks in the main characters memory left me shaking my head. I didnt piece anything together and it seemed like a strange coming together tbh, the convesation with sae was confusing as hell prior to being left alone in the cell. I thought the overall bad guy was that person, directing the group to act in certain ways leading up to the casino etc. It was good, enjoyable but ultimately a let down and the big reveal was a bunch of mcguffins which had replaced sense.

@themcnoisy I saw the pancake thing coming tbh! But I wasn't too keen on how they selectively removed pieces of narration just to show them to you later so you would be surprised, it's a weird story-telling device in a game that lets you see every single moment. All in all I felt the big reveal was enjoyable, especially how detailed it was but also really contrived... and they took too much time to explain it. You could feel the screenplayets struggling to come up with something quirky.

Ugh I feel like I am always complaining about this game but seriously I really really liked it, I just find incredibly strange how a lot of people seem to consider it flawless, a masterpiece etc.

@Feena "selectively removed pieces of narration just to show them to you later so you would be surprised"

Yeah it was weird and It didn't surprise me at all. I was confused, like did I skip these scenes?

Maybe similar to what happened to Makotos sister, keeping information from her, the team could have done the same with the protagonist with maybe Ryugi (as he hates the bad guy) scheming with Makoto after findong something on the police harddrive but Makoto still wanted to save her sister, which would lend credibility to leaving the protagonist in the dark..... That would have been way better and more coherent.

Oh well, im gonna sneak in a couple of hours tomorrow and see how far that gets me. Not long now!

Im upto the 2nd of December with 13 or 14 days remaining until the election or something (next palace deadline). Ive hit mementos to get to the bottom, par the first obligation to get the true ending. Ive saved in one of the shelters to come back later and finish.

Anyway my question is, should I hit the palace the next day or can I wait a few more days as Ive nearly maxed Futaba? Ive already spent a good few days messing around and hit the computer game trophy. But Im worried there could be a hard ceiling on the date I should finish it by rather than the one thats set ie) I have to return to the real world at some point then return.

@themcnoisy I always got the palace bosses out of the way quickly so I didn't have to worry about it when building up my social links but I suppose it doesn't matter either way. I can't recall if the last palace is the same in that regard.
I still need that Golden Finger trophy (beating the video games) because I just couldn't do the last stage on Power Intuition. Grrrrr.

@ApostateMage yeah that was a rubbish level. I used the game book on that stage luckily. Id maxed proficiency whilst playing power intuition level 2 so didnt need the additional proficiency points. That was way lucky, It gives you 15 seconds to hit the commands.

Rather than pressing the inputs like a rhythm action game put the action in your head and do it quickly. I messed it up twice but did it on my 3rd try within the 15 seconds.

That "special move" i put was annoying! I read those inputs as the Haoh Shoukou Ken from Art of Fighting / King of fighters then I realised it wan't like it - grrrr made me lose an evening on the first play trough.

@Feena Art of Fighting / King of fighters

Off topic but on seeing a load of neogeo fighting games on the store which one should I give a go? They are all cheap but as theres like 20 of them ive never bought one. Too much choice.

Onto P5 and Ive got as far as I can in mementos and maxed out kuzuke and fatuba. Got my team ready for the cruiser!

Does anyone have tips for the homerun mini game trophy, i suck at that.

@themcnoisy I aimed on the bottom half of where the ball would be thrown so I could get some height to it. That and a bit of luck. It was a cakewalk compared to that bloody fighting game.

@themcnoisy As a Streets of Rage fan, you would probably like the Sengoku games quite a bit.

@themcnoisy I'd wait for the King of fighters 98 to be ported (it has already been rated!) if you want it on ps4 - that is the best SNK fighting game imho.

Yeah aim for the lower part of the ball for the homer thing!

Started playing this again today and I decided to start over from the beginning as I feel like my first time playing this game back when it launched was quite turbulent. Now I decided to play the game on 'Easy' as opposed to Safe or Normal and I'm gonna test it out to see if it feels good for me. There's always the chance that I'm going to lower it to Safe as I can imagine the end-game part could be quite difficult as typical JRPGs always like to turn things up a notch with a steep difficulty curve at the end of the game.

But yeah, I'm going to try to finish the first dungeon throughout the next couple of days and start using my free time towards that clinic lady as some of you mentioned that she gives you an item that helps you recover SP, which sounds good to me. This game will most likely take me the rest of the year to finish so I hope it'll be a fun ride.

@KratosMD happy questing, you're in for a long ride

I read data miners found some unused Persona 3 assets (as the Iwatodai dorm) in P5, I am starting to belive those P3 remake rumors...

@KratosMD Woah man ... don't forget Danganronpa 3 comes out in less than 2 weeks! And what about Yakuza 0?! You were so excited about those. 😮
Haha, it's okay, I'm trying to juggle Persona 5 and Danganronpa 2 at the same time. Both games are just great so far. I'm expecting Persona 5 to last several months since I'll be splitting time. Let's see — a 120 hour game .... at my average weekly play time ....(does some mental calculations) ... I should be done in mid December. That's depressing. Maybe I'll be lucky and come down with some horrible illness that forces me to miss work for like 2 weeks so I can game all day.
But seriously, I notice on the forum here that a lot of people just make it through half of P5 and just have to take a sabbatical from it for a few months and come back to finish it later.

If the other guy is getting better, then you'd better be getting better faster than he's getting better, or you're getting worse.

KratosMD

@Th3solution I'm actually planning on a taking a break from P5 when V3 releases in a couple of weeks. But right now, I feel like I need to play a game which I can devote my entire attention to. This past week, I have not really found a single game to be completely engrossed in (I've been juggling my playtime between Yakuza 0, Mafia II and Pokémon Sun) so I decided to put them on hold and just focus on one long game and P5 is the right game for the job. This is mainly because I'm back to studying again and I need something extra special to get me through the semester and Persona games are usually the remedy.

And it is true that I will probably take a long break from the game after a while. I mean, it took me almost seven months in total to finish P4G, with a lot of breaks in between. So it doesn't really bother me if I do the same with P5. It will be worth it, as this game may become the best game I've ever played if people are considering it to be better than P4G. And for my final year in university, I really need a game like that, hehe.
