About three hours in. One of the first fights in the game (when Ryuji gets his Persona), and I get absolutely slaughtered on the first go. Haha! Hard mode seems aptly named so far.

Oh well, if I could get through the entirety of SMT IV: Apocalypse on the hardest (non-DLC) difficulty, I can do it here, too!

@Fight_Teza_Fight Haven't gotten to one of the negotiations yet, but the negotiation system in P1 & 2 was terrible anyway. I really like the added element of randomness in the more recent SMT games, where you actually feel like you're talking to a creature with an actual personality and not just getting a multiple choice question wrong.

@KratosMD I actually downloaded that, but I still haven't found the items in my room yet. I'm wondering if I'm still too early in the game to get them...

I will say that, while I'm loving the game so far, I kind of miss the warmth and feeling of community I had in Persona 4. I get that this might conflict with the themes of victimization and alienation the game is exploring, but it's really a downer when everyone acts like my character is some sort of hardened ex-con.

Then again, I guess you could say the way the game puts you in the psychological shoes of someone who is constantly viewed with suspicion is brilliant. You're treated like a nuisance. People assume the worst of you, and there are constant whispers about me when students think I'm not listening in.

What really hits home for me is how cold my character's guardian seems so far. He's a far cry from the gruff but deeply caring Dojima.

Very small thing, but I'm anal about this stuff - the quality of the recording of the voice overs is bad. The ladies in particular sound like they are speaking with a lisp due to the compression or because they were too close to the mic or something? Basically, the S's sound weird!

Otherwise, 3 hours in, it's excellent.

Finished work, picked up my Steelbook, deleted my digital copy and reinstalled the game.
Totally worth it. I don't really collect gaming memorabilia, but this alongside my UC4 PS4 I'll treasure for life. It's beautiful!!

Careful people, if you download dlc after starting a playthrough of the game you won't be able to access it on that playthrough...

@kyleforrester87 how you finding P5 bro? Better than P4G?

@Ralizah Dojima is a brilliantly deep character who gets over looked. His story hit me hard as the dad of a young Nanako like little girl, my wife almost died earlier this year and it was absolutely terrifying, literally left on our own trying to manage when my wife was in hospital. So massive props to the writers for being able to convey his and Nanakos situation.

@themcnoisy Yeah man I'm all in on it now, it's fantastic. I'm about 5 hours in and well invested. At this point in number 4 I still felt like I was waiting for it to start.

I won't be at home tomorrow until Sunday so won't get to play much until then unfortunately

@themcnoisy Sorry to hear about that! She's okay now? But yeah, the game is full of great, relatable, and incredibly human characters. Especially amongst the smaller side characters.

@Ralizah Yeah she's getting better, she went into a coma which originally started from tonsillitis which developed into a serious infection in her throat which spread. That was in January and she's on the mend and almost fully fit.

@kyleforrester87 I was going to wait until months end but I'm finding it pretty tough!

@KratosMD I did it over 5-6 days I think. Once the treasure is taken the palace disappears, so when I ran out of lockpicks I left to make new ones. I also like filling out my persona compendium so I exited the dungeon whenever I topped out my carry limit.

I'd normally hammer the dungeon in one day and then spend my rest of the time building up social links/stats, but its not designed to be that way in P5. Steady progress. It's literally impossible to complete the first dungeon in one day anyways, so take your time.

@themcnoisy Glad to hear that she's doing better. Dojjima is a brilliant character. Easily my favorite parent figure in any game ever.

I'm a good 8 or so hours into this game now. The tutorial phase is lasting a long time in this one, although at least it's doing it right and gradually opening up the game to me instead of making me watch people talk for four straight hours before opening everything at once. I like how this game kind of eases the player in.

The subject matter is really infuriating at this point. If this teacher is indicative of the sort of worthless human scum my characters will be fighting in this game, I can only imagine there are all sorts of interesting and macabre narratives dotting this clearly enormous game.

Also, even though I'm playing on hard mode, I'm already steamrolling pretty much every enemy I come across. Ambush, hit their weakness, all-out attack, rinse and repeat. I really like the baton pass mechanic, and feel like it'll become more useful later in the game.

@themcnoisy Jesus! Glad to hear she's doing better. That must have been incredibly frightening.

I dived in and got this game but i'm a little unsure of it at the moment? All i seem to be doing is pressing X to close dialogue boxes down, move a little, cut scene, dialogue boxes, cut scene, move a little. It looks and sounds fantastic though

Can't think of anything good to put here just yet, watch this space...

Thanks @KratosMD i am going to stick with it but it hasn't 'gripped' me yet. I also find the map very confusing at the moment but i'm sure i'll get used to it

Persona 5 is a JRPG that deserves to be played, period. There are few other games that understand their genre as well as Persona 5 does. It knows exactly what Persona fans, JRPG fans, and gamers in general want to see. It’s not just a game, it’s an addiction, and if you give it a shot you too will find yourself playing and replaying Persona 5 for the better part of 2017.
