  1. The Famitsu issue coming on June 4th was confirmed to have something that ''will rile up the game industry". Zenji Nishikawa mentioned it's something related to SEGA, but he said it's not a Dreamcast 2. What do you guys expect this announcement to be?
  2. Today I learned Knights of the Holy Lance found its way in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment for the PSP.

    Aparently it's part of Tatsuya's scenario, which is only in the PSP version.

    This also makes me realize how odd it is that it's the second theme to be associated with the duology, after Maya's theme. It plays during 3/4 openings (only exception is Innocent Sin's PSP theme), and has like 7 different remixes.

      This is just reminding me how badly I need my Pi4 case to arrive so I can finish this new Retropie build. Persona 2 is a game I've been dying to get to.

  3. It's weird seeing so many people asking for a Persona 3 Remake. I'd say Persona 1 and 2 (both IS and EP) need a remake first, but I guess most fans would just use the "Persona 1 and 2 don't exist" joke.

      Persona 1 really needs an update. Its too much like SMT than the later games with a ton of gameplay flaws.

      2 is too perfect though. Yeah it could look prettier but it would make 5 look like a NES game and Atlus doesn't want that.

    2. DiamondX


      It makes me wonder if a remake would keep the positioning mechanic where you have the battle map made out of squares and the attacks have a certain range.

      As for 2, I can see what you mean, but I still think they can improve some aspects.

  4. As someone who never ended up buying the Encore DLC for Mania would you say it's worth getting?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Yes. Especially on sale.

    2. Sean


      If you want more playable characters and harder special stages then yeah. Ray's the second most fun character to use after Sonic.

      It's also necessary for some mods if you're going to look into those.

    3. KHCast


      I never got it cause I didn’t play Mania itself much after completing the game a few runs through. I eventually will get it, but mostly for the multiplayer aspect, as having more local multiplayer games on PS4 is always great for me

      Encore Mode is probably the best way to play the game if you haven't for a while and felt you had your fill of the regular mode before (always end up taking the same routes etc).

      It also has the perk of a much better checkpoint bonus stage that doesn't feel like a horrendous interruption when you decide to go into it, as well as an extra mini act and an completely new layout for Mirage Saloon Act 1 that all characters share.  I feel like some new areas were added to other acts too for Mighty and Ray to find but can't remember if they were just for Encore or whether they were added to the base game too. Might be wrong on that last one. Also yeah, as mentioned the Special Stages are also completely new tracks for Encore Mode.

      The only downside is that the shifted palettes aren't always as appealing as the original looks for the stages, and you can't access Egg Reverie, so it's not the definitive way to play the game.  But definitely worth at least one playthrough.  Personally I also enjoyed it most as a self-imposed challenge where I never allow myself to manually switch characters - just have to adapt to who I'm given.

      To me, Encore Mode is more valuable for it's character swap mechanic and life system than the pallette and level design changes.

      Mighty and Ray sweeten the deal of course, as does 4 player racing. It's worth $5.

    6. Strickerx5


      Mighty and Ray alone make it easily worth the $5 imo.

  5. The Yakuza trailer was great.

  6. https://steamdb.info/app/1235140/

    Yakuza 7/Like a Dragon spotted on Steam.


    This is gonna be interesting.

      Perhaps I'm the only one that doesn't understand this?



    1. Bobnik


      I can understand Silver, since he was voiced by Bryce Papenbrook in TSR. The rest I have no idea who they are

    2. DiamondX


      I recognise 3 others:

      • The second one is Noriaki Kakyoin from Jojo. I really don't get why he's here.
      • The fourth one is Goro Akechi from Persona 5. I guess he somewhat makes sense.
      • the fifth one is Goro Majima from Yakuza. He makes sense in the way that he acts as crazy as Nagito, but there's more to him than that.
    3. Kuzu


      I don't get it.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      Akechi makes vague sense, he and Nagito are comparable for their backstabbing nature to suit their true purposes of hope and justice. The only real difference is Akechi makes an effort to hide his insanity while Nagito rolls with and embraces it.

  9. Yakuza 0's final chapter on Legend is really annoying.

    The game has you fight like 4 waves of enemies as Kiryu as well as 4 mini bosses, and tons of guns that take away like a third of your HP.

    After that you fight as Majima with a really long fight and 2 bosses.

    You then return to Kiryu to fight the final boss.

    The catch it that normally, the game lets you restart any fight. This is not the case in Legend mode where you can only start again from the last save. The last save you can do is before the first fight starts.

  10. Not sure if this was posted yet but...


    This might happen.

      Thanks for clearing that out.

  11. Spoiler for Yakuza 0's two extra bosses:

    I kinda wish they mixed up the mechanics for the two fights. So Amon starts with the cannon and then the helicopter while Jo starts with the Dragon of Dojima style and then goes to the Mad Dog of Shimano style. 

    So's fight seems way to gimmicky while Jo's is more straightforward. Maybe have So start with the cannon and then go Mad Dog while Jo starts with the Dragon of Dojima and then calls the helicopter.

    Both fights are great, but still...

  12. I started to realize I'm becoming less and less active on this forum. Maybe it's just the lack of news about Sonic...

    1. DanJ86


      I know that feeling.

    2. Indigo Rush

      It's definitely a lull period. Don't worry too much about it. After 2012 the forums got kinda boring up until Sonic Boom became a thing, then another lull until 2016-17 for obvious reasons.

    3. Milo


      @Indigo Rush Sonic Lost World happened in 2013 and the forum was pretty active around that time

    4. TheOcelot


      Yeah, once the next Sonic game starts being teased the forum will get busier again as we'll have something to talk about.

  13. https://www.gamesradar.com/best-persona-games/

    I don't get how people write articles ranking games they clearly never played.

    Persona 2: Innocent Sin introduced Persona summoning? What? What about Persona 1? And 2 didn't have negotiations? The main character has a meme around his motorcycle noises which come from his negotiation... There's more but this status would get too long.

  14. Catherine coming to Switch instead of Persona 5 is most likely gonna cause an uproar from the fanbase.

    1. DanJ86


      Meh, not from me.

      It suggests that more Atlus games are likely on the way. Or maybe I'm being naïve...?

  15. I think the best way to tell how much the Persona series changed in tone over the years is these two songs. Both are the battle themes for Persona 1,the original and the PSP remaster:

    Megami Ibunroku Persona/ Revelations Persona/ PS1 Persona 1

    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona/ Persona/ PSP Persona 1

  16. You really cannot pause cutscenes in Yakuza 3 or am I missing something?

    You'd think they would add that option.

  17. Started playing Yakuza 3 Remastered on the PS4. It looks great, but I still wish it got the Kiwami treatment for the combat. 

  18. Seems like Kakarot isn't coming soon, so I canceled my order.

    Most likely will buy it digitally. Sad that I lost the pre-order bonuses but they were only early unlocks either way.

  19. Pre-ordered Kakarot and yet still didn't get the game.

    Next time I'll just buy the game digitally most likely.

  20. Perhaps I had too many expectations (I really wanted Dante,Phoenix or Kiryu) but after 4 third party characters, this announcement feels out of place.

    If Byleth was in the 2nd pass I'd completely understand. Maybe even here but not at the end.

    Still hoping for 2nd pass to be great but I will try to lower my expectations.

    ATLUS decided to confirm Scramble is basically a sequel to Persona 5.

    Wonder if it's canon.

  22. Now Joker from Persona 5 gets a 3rd name: Mao Tomokawa will be his name in Persona 5 the Stage.

    Why can't they just choose a name and stick with it?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      I don't even get why, if you go by the only name actually featured in a game - his canon name is Ren - which appears in both Dancing in Starlight, and Dancing in Moonlight.

    2. Kuzu


      They did this with the last two protagonists.

      The only reason Narukami kept his name is because it was the most consistently used.

      But you still have debates over what the P3 Hero's name is, and now the same is happening with Joker.

  23. Still can't believe that Shun Akiyama (Yakuza) and Beerus(Dragon Ball) have the same voice actor.

    Their voices don't even sound similar.

    1. Zaysho


      He's also Spike Spiegel



      and Japanese Donald Duck

    2. Jango


      The guy who voices Sponge Bob also voice Goku here in Brazil, so yeah... Versatility is key

  24. The show is available to me already due to timezones. Only dubs available are english, spanish and german. Kind of a shame. Expected japanese to ba an option at least.
  25. Is there any way to see which languages it will be released in? It will be on Romania's Netflix as well starting December 1st and I wonder if a dub might happen since when we got the show here they only aired the first 15 episodes and then just stopped.
