    I don't think the set of a major film production qualifies as a "public place", though...

    Just got my first 3 2nd classes in Fire Emblem.

    Sully and Chrom and my avatar.

    Sully looks so much cooler as a paladin.

    So there's a Game Dev Tycoon game and if you pirate it then all of your games will be pirated. It creates some delicious irony.

    It's less "what happens if you pirate it" and more "the devs released this specifically altered version on file sharing sites"

    I would also have more sympathy for them if their game wasn't literally Game Dev Story.

    Ah I see you'd be interested in the Early Edition game I've been working on.

    WHAT?

    I WILL BUY THIS GAME IF IT IS A REAL GAME.

    Sorry, I just got my future paper and it says the project fails miserably.

    The real question is:

    What happens in Game Dev Tycoon when you rip off a successful mobile game?

    Depends on whether or not you're able to leverage your ripoff into coverage in the gaming blogosphere. If you are, well...

    like I could be okay with "yeah chie is the worst of the dateable girls"

    I mean, you'd be wrong, but that's okay I can accept people with awful opinions

    but worse than yosuke

    like for real yosuke is just awful

    if you didn't hate him after the camping trip bit then there's really no hope for you as a person

    but Yosuke has the best idle animation and also is the most fun in P4A so

    the worst thing about yosuke (minor, general gamewide spoilers)
    is that the way he's written into the game it seems pretty clear his awfulness is an intentional depiction of how carelessly and unconsciously bigoted young people (any people but this is a game about teenagers) can be, but there's no point where he turns around and realizes what a tremendous creep he is.

    Realistically this makes sense, as I can't imagine many teenagers with that problem get over themselves quickly, but for the purposes of yosuke as a character in a story it almost turns into like a tacit approval. I really don't think that is the intent considering the rest of the game but it's gross nonetheless.

    This sounds like a betrayal of the highest order against Naoto, real best character of all Persona.

    more for watchin' fighting games than playing them but it's fun to run through a story mode now and then

    I will grant that Labrys's accent is pretty fantastic.

    major, ending spoilers
    I think Adachi might have been meant to be that?

    like Yosuke is written as a proto-Adachi, the complaints of his shadow mirror those of Adachi's complaints about living in the boonies, and Adachi's attitude towards women is where Yosuke's attitude will lead if he doesn't straighten up

    Not sure how much you know about P4A story mode, but it's literally a visual novel with pages of texts and multiple paths that unlock further endings. Which was what I wanted! But...word of warning regardless.

    not only is it fantastic, it is literally addressed in the narrative

    someone at atlus came up with a reason why she has a terrible jersey/kansai accent
