    @feenwager Don’t let them fool you, P4 still has the same grinding, easier or not. Tartarus is replaced with similarly bland dungeons, but the theme changes at least. Personally, I liked the characters/relationships better in that game, and murder mysteries are fun, but I think the overall plot (and ending) of P3 was my favorite of the two.

    Edit: Isn’t there an anime? I guess you could skip the grinding and watch that?

    @impynickers @unmanneddrone Yeah, they really do a horrible job of explaining ANYTHING in that game, so you run around saying “WTF am I doing” and “WhereTF am I going?” for a few hours.

    But man, I played Planetside 2 for an absurd amount of time this holiday weekend. I knew the only MMO that still had a chance to hook me was an FPSMMO, and well…here we are 30 something hours in.

    The battles are just incredible, every day in Esamir is like Hoth. *Holds on to dove* I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships flying into drop pod rain over Mani Biodome. I watched phalanx cannons glitter in the dark as two entire armies tore themselves apart. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

    @bowlisimo Say, where is the download link for these things anyway, I seem to keep going back to the wiki and so far haven’t dug up a link

    Also: I’m actually finishing up the Persona 4 Endurance run (even if I finished P4 myself) great fun to have running while I’m on the net and I’m glad they put themselves out there like that. Love seeing how others react to games. (Though it certainly highlights that the main feature of most games journalist’s is the journalist rather then the gaming to put it tactfully c_c)

    @impynickers Yu Narukami? Pshh, he’ll always be Charlie Tunoku to me.

    @beige Interesting thought there, about the dregs of the internet being the best qualified to pen a game like that. So…does that make 4chan worthwhile?

    @unmanneddrone No amazing war stories at the moment, although at one point I did have a convoy of two half tracks full of rangers and an m10 tank destroyer roll up to the front while I had the MGS4 Love theme playing, needless to say, that ended up like the ambush scene in Clear and Present Danger.

    I REALLY need a coop buddy for that game.

    Also I agreed with everything those guys on Three Moves Ahead said, and then moved on to the episode dedicated to the wonderful Alpha Centauri, with Bryan Reynolds and Soren Johnson.

    @beige Our protagonist is a soft spoken fellow named Yu Narukami.

    So I watched the first episode of the Persona 4 anime. I think we have a winner for most faithful translation from a video game ever. The show doesn’t miss a beat. Every scene is based around something that happens in the game in the order it happened. The show is even divided into days with the same transition graphics displaying the passage of time. The soundtrack is just as it was, awesome. There are tons of cues that will instantly remind you of the game. Its pretty much everything I imagined while reading the games text and watching the animations. I honestly do not kid when I say it would be pretty impossible to make this more faithful than it is.

    @beige Well see, Persona carries the same virtue in my opinion.

    Yes there is an 80-hour storyline there, but it’s told pretty sensibly compared to most JRPGs. What drama is in Persona actually has purpose and leads to meaningful character development.

    The key here is efficiency, a word that most JRPG developers don’t seem to understand. We could get into the whole conversation about how Japanese audiences tend to be more patient than American audiences, but the results speak for themselves.

    On Persona 4’s music and how it can be made relevant to anything in everyday life, as I alluded to on Twitter the other day: http://angryjedi.wordpress.com/2010/06/12/oneaday-day-145-overly-ambitious-interactive-post/
