    Anyhow, I've passed the 100 hourmark and just passed the school field trip. I may be staying too long in Tartarus, but how much longer do I have leftbefore the Journey is done?

    Also, I disliked Junpei from the beginning becauseof Yukari... he's a pervy guy stereotype and gets on my nerves how far he takes it.

    iirc if you fall asleep in class your condition turns to Great

    but you miss out on the Knowledge boost by staying up through the lecture - and you can get your condition to Great by using the bathroom after classes most of the time anyway

    Chie sounded different to me at first as well since she sounds more composed and calm than during the events of P4A. She then sounded familiar again after she started to yell as Yosuke, haha. And I don't mind at all about Naoto being voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Major Kusanagi, Nina Williams, etc.).

    Which version are you playing? Maybe I'm wrong, but I found the "Great piss" for lack of a better nickname was fairly rare in P3 Vanilla, almost as (or just as) rare in P3 FES, and much more common in P3P.

    I wouldn't rely on pissing yourself to Greatness that often unless you're playing P3P, and not even then.

    That said, it's not worth losing points in Academics, or classroom knowledge, by sleeping in class IMO.

    It should be noted that all the answers to midterm and end-of-term exams are actually given in those lectures. So if you stay awake and pay attention, you should have no problems answering those questions correctly on those exams. Of course, you could always consult a FAQ, too...

    edit: Also, maybe I'm just wrong and it's the same rate in all three versions. Since there is some random chance involved, YMMV of course. That's just based on my experience with all three versions.

    That's really the thing that makes me dislike P3 and 4. The game expects you to never do the actual RPG. It wants you to spend 90% of your time doing the dating sim.

    That was also the main problem I had. I wanted to go into the dungeon and grind every day. Instead I probably spent 30 of the 40 hours I played just talking to people...when most RPGs are exactly the opposite.

    Checking a FAQ and finding out I'd done literally everything wrong with the social links/stats was the last straw.

    The general pacing of P3/P4 is pretty bad, but I appreciate the overall mix of time spent in dungeon vs. out of dungeons... if there were more incentive to make shorter weekly trips into Tartarus/Midnight Channel instead of once a month it'd probably be close to ideal for me.

    Actually, those are solid numbers. Not as good as Persona 4 Golden (which did over 100k in its first week) but better than the PSP enhanced ports of Persona 2: IS (62,091) and Persona 2: EP (24,547). Given that Soul Hackers looks to have minimal new content compared to P4G and can't have cost a lot to port, I'm guessing Atlus is pleased with those figures.

    Well to be fair, even with the once a month Tartarus thing, I'm literally spending real-time days (though I only play a few hours a day) in Tartarus on each session, grinding out xp and personas and money.

    But I'm assuming this is the consequence of trying to do-it-all in one playthrough with a guide. Whereas the game was probably designed for you to figure it out on your own with multiple playthroughs and finishing the social stuff over those playthroughs.

    I actually started to loathe going to Tartarus. One trip can last 2-3 hours, whereas an entire month of daily stuff takes maybe an hour. P3P added rescue missions, too, where Elizabeth gives you a range of floors a person *could* be in. They are almost always ~10 floors away from the nearest teleport.

    Yeah, I've never managed to not lose interest in the game where I try to perfect everything. But I usually will complete a playthrough where I accept the mistakes and inefficiencies.

    I did this with Devil Survivor 2 after the first playthrough. Day by day, choice by choice, following a guide. I did that to guarantee that I got the appropriate path by the end... Three times? Many times. I don't know what it is, but the SMT games just cater to the grinder in me. Something like 200+ hours at least back in the days of Nocturne. I really want them to port over those PS2 era games to PSN so I can play them on my PS3.

    Edit: Since everyone's discussing Persona series characters, is it bad to say that I'm a fan of Naoto? That's only based on what I've seen of her character in P4A since I haven't played P4 yet. Soon I will have Golden and all these characters will make sense. Still, she seems like badass in P4A.

    Wait, is "we're not getting EP" a definite thing now? Did it bomb? I'm confused!

    I mean, isn't there a bonus for having beaten both IS and EP? Some extra dungeon or somesuch?

    I should really pick DS2 back up. And DDS. And SJ. I really liked Overclocked, but I think I burned out on tactics games after playing a few in a row.

    I need to find somewhere to plug my PS2 back in for DDS. Not having to fuse demons made it probably the best fit for me.
