Persona 5

#1

So this is my next game…and probably will be my game for the next couple months. From what I’ve read, I’m probably looking at 200+ hours.

Only annoying thing so far is 1080p30 on everything. Even PS4 Pro.

As for the actual game, I’m not sure how to explain it other than it’s a very well polished jrpg. You’re a highschool student that passes back and fourth between the real world and an imaginary/simulated/cyber world. I don’t think I’ve played far enough to explain it properly. I’ll post more later.

Ok so the world you transition into is a cognitive space. You fight in other people’s minds. Yet somehow they use a phone app to find them.

You can replace your sms app with this one! I didn’t even think that was a thing! Turns out it’s no diff than picking a default browser.

Nope. Anyone with any capture device can do it. You just can’t use the built in ps4 screenshot/video features. I don’t have a capture device so no go for me. Plus I only wanted to share a couple funny screen shots and also make a little vid to show my friend how awesome the ui is. Oh well.

I think I am now living this game. Just as the characters have to get their school crap out of the way each day in the game, I’m doing the same with work. Heh, same music running through my head too lol.

Turns out it won’t be as long as I thought:

I just want to beat it, I’m not a completionist.

For a lot of jrpgs that’s normal. I think the reason everyone is saying it’s so long is that it was hyped here in the west and most western games are short. Since it was hyped, a lot of people are playing it as their first jrpg.

I’m in the late 80s… The story is one of those that shows you a tiny bit of what happens near the end of the story at the beginning. I’ve just gotten to that part and saved. I think I’m in the home stretch! : ]

Well the bit it shows you at the beginning isn’t the end, just soon before. Still more to play.

Game. It’s like a drug where you don’t have to chase the dragon. It just walks beside you holding your hand. : ]
