    jrpgs are the "filler arc" of video games. they pad them with inane bullshit to create the illusion of content when in reality they are just trying to arbitrarily increase the game length to 80 hours so they can pretend there is content other than mashing X through text boxes.

      why didn't he bring the sister back

        because that doesn't make him feel better, he truly believes Sumire is happier being her sister than bringing kasumi back

          then he's actually dumb and someone in game should have called him out for that, especially because it makes him look unnecessarily villainous tentacle raping sumire into being her sister again when he could just bring Kasumi back and change Sumire to just not have an inferiority complex

          • 4 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            The point is that he only ever does what people want or specifically ask for. He never makes judgements about how their life could be improved unless their want is unattainable. The Sumire situation does feel a bit like a plothole, though, because Maruki's intention was to rewrite reality, not just change some people's cognitions. In his new reality, Sumire's parents still saw her as Sumire and she still only perceived that they saw her as Kasumi. It's not really clear how this would become reality when there's an inherent conflict there. It was clearly created with the intent of making Maruki's reality seem less ideal. Without this, it would have been much harder for the game to convince players that Maruki was misguided.

            • 4 weeks ago
              Anonymous

              I use the example with Sumire, because as a functioning adult Maruki should probably know that taking a grieving teenager girl at her word (especially for something so life changing) probably isn't the best idea. It just weakens his character when it doesn't have to, if this was solely a conflict ideals between Maruki and the Phantom Thieves I think it would make the whole Royal plot better as a result.

    You can skip most of the dialogue and not miss anything because so much of it is

    >"Do you think stealing the treasure will work? I know it did the last 5 times, but do you think stealing the treasure will work?"
    >"We can only wait and see"
    >"Yeah...I'll text you again tomorrow to ask if you think stealing the treasure will work the way stealing the treasure worked the last 5 times we stole the treasure"

    I played the game a second time when Royal came out, and despite the fact that Royal has more content and I did about the same amount of side stuff as in my first vanilla playthrough, I got through Royal 20 hours faster because I skipped any dialogue that repeated something already discussed. 20 fucking hours.

      Fuse personas into stronger ones as soon as they learn all of their skills or when they're lagging behind. Make sure to try and cover every weakness and you can bullshit your way through pretty much any fight in the game until maybe the last few areas.
      Also bring personas with the same arcana as the social link you're about to do so you waste less time in the long run.
      That being said, do whatever you feel is more fun since the game isn't very strict with time management compared to other games in the series.

      Prioritize levelling up Takemi's confidant and get it to rank 7 asap, rank 5 unlocks SP adhesive accessories and rank 7 halves the prices, a team with all SP adhesives is a massive boon for a big portion of the game
      start Tora's social link (dude on a soapbox in Shibuya at night) he gives the ability to shake down shadows for more money
      Hifumi (girl at the church, you unlock it later) lets you earn more money for ambushes in battles and lets you swap out party members in combat
      Bring along a Persona of the corresponding arvana when doing confidants (have a death arcana when doing Tae's confidants for example) even if you just have to buy a cheap one in the velvet room
      always be keeping up with fusion, its the bread and butter of this game
      Try get palaces done with as few trips as possible, the aforementioned SP adhesives help massively with this
      The devil confidant isn't that great, but you get +3 charm every visit, so its worth doing early

      Max ryuji,hifumi,caroline and Justine,the politican dude and mishima confidants,these are the most useful for overall experience of the game with ryuji literally destroying shadow by just running on them,hifumi with letting you change members all the time and mishima sharing same exp for the members who don't fight,the politican dude helps with shadow negotiations who overlevel you and caroline/justice basically gives you more options in general

      It's really bad. Animation is really mediocre, pacing is break necking, if you never played the game you'd be lost what was going on most of the time. It takes revisions on the story that are pointless but then leaves things that could use some rework alone. It also tries to fit all the confidants in one way or another which mucks up an already rough plot.

      He topped the polls in Japan, so they brought him back, which is fair I guess, what I didn't like however is how they pussied out with the conclusion to his arc. The game never tells you if he lives or dies. Are you fucking kidding me? He's a big celebrity and literally no one is gonna report on his fate? Main story wise, he's supposed to be dead, but again, no reports and you see his silhouette pass by in the post-credits scene, so you're free to headcanon whatever (which is awful writing).

        That's just typical Atlus stuff. Make no mistake that he's dead for all intents and purposes, his fate and current status will be debated for years because of "muh ambiguous ending" but he won't appear for anything other than a Q style story that takes place during a period where he's alive ever again. Think Chidori after FES added the option to save her.

      By the 8th palace I said to myself "if not now then when" and summoned Izanagi-no-Okami Picaro, maxed him the fuck out, gave him Null Phys and equipped that accessory with Null Bless/Curse. Basically he had 87 Magic by the 9th palace and I was casually one shotting everything. Way stronger than Alice as nothing at all resists/blocks almighty.

      Did I miss out on some fusion autism shenanigans? I had about 80% compendium completion by the end.

      It’s the same all the way through. The new arc in Royal is better than most of the game, but still structured about the same. The dialogue only gets more repetitive as the game goes on, and the worst parts of the story are later in the game.

          I stand partially corrected. Looks like it does range from location to location. Still, it's consensual so if a tree falls in a forest but nobody's around to hear it, etc. Kawakami and Joker both WANT to be together. We can debate morals, but that much is true. Shido and Ann didn't want to be with Kamoshida, hence why one threw herself off a roof and the other had to be convinced not to put a bullet in his metaphorical head.

          Yoshizawa has to be rank 5 by December 18th.

          Alright. I might still have time for that.

          For akechi you also need specific dialogues to unlock his third form persona with telling him "we are rivals" and "don't forget our promise"

                I'm still doing my first playthrough at the moment, and I definitely didn't manage my time well, but I will have unironically maxed out all the adult female confidants before the game is over, along with one or two other random characters.

                First was Tae, then Kawakami who I actually chose to date, then Chihaya, and last will be Ohya. I don't hate her as much as others tend to. She's fine. A different haircut would revolutionize her appeal, though.

      ...I didn't need to get Yoshizawa to a particular rank before the 17, did I?

      I just barely managed to get Akechi and Maruki to their needed levels, meanwhile I kinda left Yoshizawa on the backburner since she'd only be useful in the even that I got the third semester and I didn't want to date her.

    I'm probably the only person who noticed/cared about this minor subplot, but basically there's a mother and a daughter in Aoyama-Itchome and they have a dog at the beginning of the game, Kotaro, he eventually gets sick and dies, then Maruki does his thing to give the little girl false hope, and then the dog dies again, for real this time. Their final bit of story concludes on 3/19.

    Honestly, this little subplot is the best piece of writing in this behemoth of a game.

      Eh, it starts pretty cool by throwing some Evangelion tier weird shit at you, but then immediately undoes it and it's just another palace and your party is already maxed out at that point, so you one shot everything all the way to the true final boss. And the ending itself has 0 twists, everything is played straight.

      Basically, don't hype it up too much, treat it as a DLC (which it was) and you won't be let down too much.

        The start was super cool yeah, I was hyped. But then it turned into "go visit on friend a day to convince them to help this guy who wants to end reality. Also, feel free to sleep in until the afternoon, you lazy fucking cunt, just ignore the stakes."

          That's just their solution to stretching one palace arc to 3 months lmao, by simply showing you one 1 cutscene per day and disabling all other activities. I would've preferred a time skip to be honest, like what they did with most of February.

    Not gonna lie, bros. The Phansite poll and comments are probably the absolute best superfluous feature I've ever seen.

    They must have lurked a decent amount of forums and blog sites to get the internet slang like those. It unironically felt like I've been playing with all of you this whole time. Just shitposts, psyopfags, moralfags, shills, and getting banned by mods for off-topic posting. It's funny every time I pause to read them.

    Just finished the game a few hours ago. Did everything (all confidants maxed out, all achievements) on a semi-blind playthrough. Didn't follow a guide but made liberal use of wikis to look up the benefits of various activities etc to help me plan better. Took me 170 hours total. Am I a slowpoke or is this the longest singleplayer game ever made?

    Note that I did listen to voices in full, always (just an OCD thing, can't control it, gonna feel like I'm missing out if I start skipping voices). Never left the game idling though. Also, the save file time is 149 hours for some reason, maybe due to savescumming or something.

    I played Caligula Effect 2 a few months before P5R finally came out on PC, and what do you know, the Kasumi twist is blatantly the same thing as that one character's in CE2. I guess CE2's writers plagiarized it? Man, that's pretty low, they're former Atlus employees, why would they burn their bridges like that.

      Can’t tell how serious you are, but Satomi Tadashi is this game’s only link to Atlus, and he wasn’t even as involved in the second one. Also, P5R’s new arc is very similar to the first Caligula. And the bridge between Atlus and Furyu was already burned years ago.

        I'm serious, it just felt like blatant copycatting to me, even their hair color is the same. Unless it's a super common anime trope? I don't really watch anime these days, so idea.

          I think it was a clear response to Atlus taking so much inspiration from Caligula 1. Furyu was pissed at Atlus for sending the original Vita release out to die in the west, and has since cut ties. And then the plot of P5R is clearly similar to Caligula, the game they killed by releasing it as a digital only title with basically no marketing, right around the time Persona 5 was set to launch.

            Interesting, had no idea there was a rivalry between them. But then again Furyu is so tiny, it's more like one side bullying I guess.

              It’s not a super open rivalry, but it’s there. Recently they put out a game called Monark, and made sure everyone knew that ex-SMT devs worked on it. But looking further into the game it doesn’t seem like they had much to do with it. The director, Fuyuki Hayashi, was the main creative force behind it. And the game has more in common with his previous work Crystar than any Megaten game.

    I won't say Makoto felt forced, but it felt like I speed ran her Confidant without even trying.

    Like when I went to Hawaii, I was able to go on the date with her and I felt surprised since I didn't think I'd been spending that much time with her. I even managed to finish her confidant right before Sae's boss fight almost instantly.

    Her slapping the piss out of her free was funny.
