People usually get mad at me if I send them two messages when they don't respond. Didn't want to get anyone angry but I'm glad you sent something back.
Never even started Margaret's link. In fact I never got the true ending or maxed my stats. Makes me want to pull out my PS2 again and attack the game head on... What was the first social link you ever maxed? In case you want to know, mines was Yosuke XD.
Nowadays? Do you mean in the remakes or something? From what I've seen, he doesn't seem that nerdy at all. Maybe I haven't gotten far enough in or something. He would be more appealing as a dork but it seems misplaced in a way.
I haven't played a single SMT game either but I scrapped that idea. I'm too much of a perfectionist XD. I dunno when but I think I can finish it over my spring break.
Goodness, I completely forgot that I never replied to you! No wonder you haven't said anything to me lately, you ought to speak up when I do that! D :
And I didn't get all of the social links in the first playthrough, I got, if I remember correct, Marie, the Dojimas, and all of my party members except Yosuke. Kinda sad actually. I did get all of the social stats maxed out though, surprised I forgot all about that. I need to conquer the Mega Beef Bowl though. I never got a rainy day after maxing my stats. And I haven't gotten a Fusion Accident either. Appearantly you're garaunteed one if you max out Margaret's social link though.
If you stray out of the Persona area I'm afraid I'd be of much less help. Not that I'm trying to condemn it, but the sad fact is I haven't played any of the main SMT series. I've played FF7, though. And I am familiar with the general details of 6. I think 7 is rather overrated, to be frank. BUt at the same time the thing that annoys me about it is that the laregly inaccurate, exaggerated fan interpretations of things were inexplicably taken on as solid canon. Cloud's a great example. Cloud was hilariously dorky in the original 7. Sure, he brooded, but he also had a degree of snark and nerdiness and just... amusement about him. But nowadays he's just this bland... emotionless... one dimensional... ugh.
I think avatar's are supposed to play gifs. In any case if it's important just ask a staff member. I understand that feeling too although I feel like she should have had her own route as well. So much room for more stories, kinda makes me hope for a similar project from 4leaf.
:p don't rush yourself. If you've gotten all the social links in your first playthrough and got close to maxing your stats then you must be pro. Never had a "fusion accident" in the game before (almost forgot they were possible).
The same thing happened to me when Brawl and Melee came out respectively. The only reason I really got a wii was because of Melee to be honest although I loved my gamecube to death R.I.P. It stopped working after a good run of ten years and along with it went a significant portion of my childhood (reminds me how awfully close I was to becoming N.E.E.T. in the future).
I look at the gaming industry, no society in general, and always think This is Why People Can't have nice things.
I figured out a few more ideas for the Persona RP although this makes it more out of the Persona Range and just SMT. Regardless, once I finish, I'll be sure to show you. I've started FF6 and 7 recently, and I think I can use both as an inspiration. FF7 really gives the kind of feel that I want the RP to have.
It's actually supposed to be a looping gif of her laughing, but for some reason it's not working. I sympathize with Misha because I've been in the same position as her before, it kinda sucks a lot... I really wish we could've had a route for her. (Katawa Shoujo Omake Version? I'd totally play it.)
And I have too finished Golden. The trophies for getting the true ending and such are all hidden trophies, so they wouldn't display on your system since you haven't gotten them. At the moment I'm trying a new game + on hard mode, seeing if I can both max out the last few stats I need as well as try to nab all the social links this time. My first time through I pretty much just got the party's done except for the Dojimas.
And screw the next gen consoles. I've just started so much as considering getting the PS3, I don't need that kind of hype for a PS4. And the Wii U? I don't want the Wii U but when they bring out the latest Smash Bros I'm gonna HAVE to get it...
...now that I think of it, I got a Wii for Brawl and a Gamecube for Melee... looks like history really does repeat.
I love that mirror motif... doesn't seem too far out there if that persona game didn't develop into something else although I don't think it'll happen. I guess I'll leave persona creation and arcana up to the RPers.
BTW. I love the avatar... always felt amazed she was a lesbo... never expected it and her story is saddening.
I see you haven't finished Golden yet... shame on you :p I feel lucky for 8 although part of me is upset that all the hype is going to the next gen. consoles... everyone just forgot about the games for the current gen.
I wouldn't necessarily compare Dynasty Warriors with Soul Calibur, they aren't even the same genre. Although if you are gonna play a Dynasty Warriors game, and you don't mind not having any english voice acting, I'd reccomend Warriors Orochi 3, it's definitely the best in the WO series, and gives you all of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors characters to play with, as well as Achilles from Warriors of Troy and Joan of Arc from Bladestorm. DW7 was pretty good, though. But if you hold on a bit I think 8 is coming out soon, and it's PS3 exclusive, you lucky bugger.
I'd reccomend letting players do their own searching for Persona ideas as I've ran into some really good ones from mythologies and fables and such that I never knew about. You learn a lot doing Persona RPs, that's for sure. At the same time you do get a lot of trite and cliche ones, so while I do want to reccomend leaving the decision open, it may be good to restrict it to one mythology. If I remember correct all of the P3 cast's initial personas were Greek mythology, while all of P4's were Japanese mythology.
Also, holeeee crap that is a lot of work to put into a fanmade concept of all things. The thing that got me was that they had pictures and links and videos and music and everything. If it weren't for you telling me it was fake, I would've assumed it was real speculation for a real upcoming game until I noticed they used Brick In The Wall as a dungeon theme.
My playstation screename is HearingFootsteps although I have none of the same games (I had MGS4 a while back). I still wanted to play through P4 although I also wanted to try out Dynasty Warriors 7 because it looks awesome. Looked kinda look a better Soul Caliber. Also the Ps3 debut retail price was insanely high compared to now.
I'm thinking about how I should allow people to select a persona. I'm debating on just saying anything based on a mythological figure or creature but I feel I should specify a specific like Nordic, Greek, Persian, Etc. Also I'm thinking on whether or not it needs a motif. If you look up AtlusxP5, you'll see an amazing fan-made concept of a persona game and this made me think deeply about what I need to do. Once I figure out the theme/motif, I'll be on smooth sailing seeing as the persona thing is more of a whim.
Ahh, when it came time for me to pick between PS3 and XBox, the Xbox was actually affordable and the only two games that interested me that the PS3 had that it didn't were Folklore and Metal Gear Solid 4. If you want I do have a Vita and a PSO tag called gia_bro, but I'm only ever online playing Playstation All Stars Battle Royale (really hyped about the new dlc coming out on the 19th). Rising has been hella fun so far, and I only really know anything about Fist of the North Star through the Ken's Rage series. I'm a big Dynasty Warriors fan so that's what got me into them. I stayed for the awesomeness though. (Gawd I'm gonna have to get all of the achievements for Ken's Rage, Dynasty Warriors Gundam and Warriors Orochi again... and I don't even know how I'll get the Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing ones...)
Feel free to ask me for advice on the Persona RP anytime you want, by the way. Like I said, I've been in a lot of 'em. They were my introduction into the series.
