Persona 4

Postby Inxth » Fri Aug 06, 2010 8:11 am

The year is 2011. The location is Inaba, Japan. Persona 4 is an RPG/Simulation game that you can only like. The graphics are great, the music is awesome, the characters are well-developed and the synopsis is far better than most others. You play as the 17-year-old protagonist, who is staying at Inaba because his parents are working overseas. Right before you arrive, you lose consciousness and regain it in a room that exists between dream and reality - the Velvet Room. There your fortune is told:

"When you arrive at your destination, a great mystery will be imposed on you."

And a few minutes later, you are in Inaba, meeting up with your uncle, Ryotaro Dojima, and he escorts you to where you would be living for the next year. Soon, you begin hearing rumours of a Midnight Channel - a channel that comes up if you stare at a blank TV screen on a rainy night. Supposedly, it shows you your soulmate. While all this happens, bizarre murder cases are popping up all over Inaba - and soon you learn that the Midnight Channel actually shows the figure of the next victim of these murder cases. How the victims die are most peculiar - they are thrown into a TV, which leads to a world that is reality for those who enter it, and their 'shadows' or inner, malevolent thoughts appear and state out their thoughts out loud, and the victim generally denies this, while slowly the fog lifts, and when it does, the shadows go berserk and attack anything in range - in other words, the victims were killed by their own thoughts. Your task is to solve this mystery. (obviously)

This game was rated one of the best RPG games of all time. I suggest you play it!

Indeed, although Persona 3 FES is better IMO.
Plus, I love ALL of the Shin Megami Tensei games.

    Nel mezzo del camin di nostra vita
    mi ritrovai per una selva oscura
    che la diritta via era smarrita.
    Ahi quanto a dir qual era è cosa dura
    esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte,
    che nel pensier rinuova la paura!
    Tant 'e amara che poco è più morte;
    ma per trattar del ben ch'i' vi trovai,
    dirò del altre cose ch'i' v'ho scorte.

    -Dante Alighieri, The Inferno.

Right now I'm stuck fighting Shadow Kanji. That gay dungeon is REALLY awkward. The boss is even worse.

They say it's the most disturbing dungeon in the game XD Using stat boosts in boss battles really helps. Eliminate the 'nice guy' first, then concentrate everything on the shadow. Use Yukiko or Yosuke to heal everyone if needed, unless you have a persona that has mediarama or something. Oh yeah, and it's good to utilize the wild card system - using different personas at a time really helps. That's about it. :D

My PS2 can't save anything on slot 1 so I can't play P4 D:

I'm borrowing a friends copy, and he's returning to New York on Sunday. Which means he needs his game tomorrow. Drat.
I can't find a copy in any store, of 3 or 4. You can't buy it online unless you go to Ebay or amazon. And they're charging 35-45 average per copy. It's insane. Gamestop is ironically the cheapest way to go. P3 FES is 13$ and P4 is 15$. Really funny considering how they're almost ALWAYS 2x more than ebay or amazon. But Gamestop isn't selling it online. Only in stores and we dont have it in both our stores.

Take note that you shouldn't keep attacking her after she uses supreme insight. Either rush or defend yourself.

Shadow Mitsuo. Second time...
