    its less effort to make a video than to actually have a coherently typed guide book.
    literally push record and start playing the game.

    And then overlay a taste in shitty music over the actual game music.

    People with much more time on their hands than myself make guides. I dunno why people rely on them and don't just head to GameFAQs or something. They're usually more thorough, and you can actually ask questions.

    Also aren't guides usually not made by the publisher? So they don't get any money from the purchase anyway?

    It actually makes sense, most those guides will be written from the point the game comes out which means you will usually be ahead of where the guide is thus making the guide 100% useless if you play the game at launch.

    And then for a game like this where I'm going to want to check back frequently to make sure I'm not missing shit I standing up to walk over to my computer constantly would really take me out of the game and my phone is garbage for trying to flip around through a guide on.

    So yea, gamefaqs is not a replacement for guides at all.3

    I wish my translate worked properly for that. I tried but It couldn't make clear which end was positive and which end was negative or which end was owned and I ended up picking the opposites and had to close it.

    Morale is.... LESS REMAKES AND MORE NEW GAMES PLEASE ATLUS.

    I'm actually fine without Persona 5 The Better One. I don't care that much.

    But I still need that version, because I'm not going to trust Atlus if they say that they aren't making it, and that makes me feel bad when I put time into the first version.

    If you're crazy like me, this probably sounds delicious.
    http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3299/
    Introducing Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne - Hardtype! This is a hack of the original game designed with several primary goals in mind:

    1) Rebalance many aspects of the original game.
    2) Create a gameplay experience that is challenging to veterans of the SMT series.
    3) Add in some fresh new enemies and skills to revitalize the gameplay experience.

    This hack is intended for people who have already played (and generally mastered) the original game, and is designed to be played on Hard mode. For those who don’t fit this profile, or don’t want a more challenging experience than the original, then feel free to play on Normal mode.
    Qualify of Life Enhancements:

    Lower quality skills are no longer more likely to transfer in fusions (I’m looking at you, Pester)
    Unlearned skills on demons and magatama are no longer hidden
    Swapping demons now uses half a press turn
    Demons can now swap themselves out
    Demons in stock gain 75% of the XP gained in battle (100% with Watchful)
    Geis can now be bought in a shop in addition to being won from Puzzle Boy
    Shop prices are now only doubled on Hard mode, not tripled
    Son’s Oath now gives Dante the Pierce effect
    Retreat is now possible (albeit unlikely) in Hard mode
    MP pools are increased by 1/3
    AoE healing now affects your entire roster, not just the active party

    Difficulty Enhancements:

    After the earliest areas of the game, new and powerful enemies will show up during full Kagutsuchi
    Enemy encounter sets have been enhanced
    Enemy scripts have been enhanced
    Boss scripts have been selectively altered, and their stats have been increased substantially
    The HP of random encounter enemies scales up more over the course of the game
    New maximum of 2 -Kaja stacks on the player and 2 -Kunda stacks on enemies
    Trafuri is removed
    Tetra/Makarakarn now only affect the caster
    Estoma’s effectiveness is reduced (until you get Masakados)
    Mitama stat bonus cap lowered from +100% to +25% of base stats

    Balance Changes:
    Physical skills have been improved in the early and mid-game
    Magic skills have been improved in the late-game (and magic damage no longer caps)
    Pierce now also penetrates Resist/Null for magic skills
    HP-based skills now use strength for damage, and their damage output ranges from 60%-100% of normal based on your current HP% (the power of these skills was raised a bit to compensate for this)
    Agility and Luck now have much higher impact on the things they effect
    Luck now affects the rate of ailments and instant death
    Luck now affects critical hit chance
    Luck is now the primary factor in magic accuracy (yes, Luck did almost nothing in the original game…)
    Dark/Bright Might crit rate reduced to 50%
    Might crit rate increased to 30%
    Might skills, Drain Attack, and Attack All can now all stack with each other
    Drain attack healing increased to 100% of damage dealt
    Shock and Freeze can now work on bosses and only last through one physical attack
    Tarukaja now affects both physical and magical attacks (Makakaja was repurposed)
    Tornado damage reduced from Heavy to Med
    MC’s unique Phys skills have been re-tooled and re-balanced (check ‘em out!)
    Many new skills have been placed on Magatama
    Stat bonuses on Magatama have been generally improved
    Magma Axis now treats a target’s Drain Fire or Repel Fire as Void Fire (works with Pierce)
    Resistances and skillsets of demons have been rebalanced
    Elem Boost skills reduced to +30%

    New Skills (a few are re-works):

    Scald: AoE Light-Mid Fire damage. Lowers enemy physical attack.
    Laevateinn: Acts as Fire Boost and enhances Surt’s regular Attack
    Chill: Single target Light-Mid Ice damage. Inflicts Sukunda.
    Cocytus: 3-7 hits of Mid Ice damage. High odds of Freeze.
    Niflheim: AoE Mega Ice damage. Lowers enemy evasion.
    Zap: Single target Light Elec damage. Extremely high chance of Shock.
    Mjolnir: Single target Mega Elec damage. High chance of Shock.
    Thunder Reign: AoE Mega Elec damage. Moderately high chance of shock.
    Odinson: Passive skill that acts as Elec boost and doubles Shock chance. (unique to Odin)
    Dervish: AoE Light-Mid Force damage. Lowers enemy evasion
    Panta Rhei: AoE Mega Force damage.
    Vayavya: 3-7 hits of Heavy Force damage. Low odds of Stun.
    Antichthon: Single target Heavy Almighty damage. Inflicts Debilitate.
    Last Word: Single target Severe Almighty damage. Uses all remaining press turns.
    God’s Curse: AoE Med-Heavy Almighty damage. Inflicts random Curse/Nerve ailments.
    Sol Niger: AoE Heavy Almighty damage. Dekaja effect.
    Babylon Goblet: Sukunda effect. Mid odds of Panic.
    Soul Drain: Drains HP&MP from the enemy. (More powerful than Life Drain / Meditate)
    Fang Breaker: Single target Light Phys damage. Tarunda effect.
    Akasha Arts: Single target Heavy Phys damage. Greater damage with lower HP%.
    Primal Force: Single target Severe Phys damage. Cannot crit without Shock/Freeze.
    Skull Cleave: Single target Heavy Phys damage. Rakunda effect.
    Chi Blast: AoE Light Phys damage. Low accuracy, high crit rate.
    Earthquake: AoE Mega Phys damage. High accuracy, low odds of Stun. Cannot crit without Shock/Freeze.
    Gate of Hell: AoE Heavy Phys damage. Low odds of Petrify.
    Poison Arrow: 3-5 hits of Light Phys damage. Low odds of Poison.
    Bloodbath: 3-5 hits of Mid Phys damage. Low accuracy, high crit rate.
    Sakura Rage: 3-5 hits of Mid Phys damage. Low odds of Charm.
    Amrita: Heals all ailments on the party.
    Cadenza: Increases accuracy and magic attack.
    Heat Riser: Grants all -kaja effects twice to one target.
    Luster Candy: Grants all -kaja effects to the party. (AVAILABLE AS CONSUMABLE ITEM ONLY)
    Anti-Magic: Grants Fire/Ice/Elec/Force resistance.
    Anti-Ailments: Grants Nerve/Curse/Mind resistance.
    Void Ailments: Grants immunity to Nerve/Curse/Mind.

    Man, after playing TMS so much, it's going to feel weird going back to P5 and not having Session skills. (Unless it does have a equivalent, I haven't actually paid that much attention to new systems.) I actually rather like having the entire party active in fights and having a reason to keep them leveled up and equipped and not just the front row.

    It does not have them.

    And good. The system would need to be refined a bit more before I'd be happy having something like it in a main series game like that.

    Also I don't like leveling characters I don't like/use and even in TMS I didn't level them. It did not not matter at all.

    Got around to playing through SMT4A in the meantime. Pretty good even if it's basically just the entire original game's assets reused with another story. It does get a little too "anime" towards the end(probably influenced by Persona) and the final dungeon is a tire fire of bad level design, but otherwise I liked it overall.

    Also includes one of the best boss themes they've composed to date. (previously it only existed as part of one specific SMT4 DLC)

    I'm really glad we've reached a point with Persona where people are excited about being a part of the games. Let's you know it really is getting that traction. I'm curious about who pops up in Persona 5 who just wanted a part.

    Kinda like how Norman Reedus played one role in one episode of the Netflix Voltron show. You don't get someone like that on your show for a cameo unless people are excited about what you're making.
