    I think I may have finally found the first character in the game I don't like, which is a bit hilarious because the fanbase adores her, so yay for me for disliking what's popular once again I guess. To be fair, she simply turns me off because she's like four different fetishistic anime tropes rolled into one.

    Sadly, I'm not the type of person who feels like investing in seven novels. I enjoy writing fiction, but not so much reading it. I tend to gravitate towards technical manuals or historical non-fiction.

    We'll wait and see, at the moment, an open-world game just doesn't appeal to me, so I may have to wait awhile before trying them out.

    True, but I've already started organizing them. I broke them down into four tiers of twenty five, and I'm kind of organizing them in blocks.

    Man, I'm still having issues trying to organize my list for my top games. Especially now that I figure I'm going to have to add P5 to it.

    I liked the actress one of the Sun Arcana, but my love of the Sun Arcana is more about how gut wrenching they are than the people themselves. Even the guy from P3 could be hard to like hen he got super "oh woe is me" about everything. I'm like "dude, shut it, or I'm going to James Sutherland your ass". Though Toro, is surprisingly likable.

    I love Death, because she's a cute alternative chick (my type) wears a variation of Ulala's dress from P2, and her social link is pretty much like dealing with Washu from Tenchi Muyo! I'll give the game props for the Devil Arcana, she's absolutely shameless like Tanaka but I imagine it will end up like the nurse social link, just less jarring.

    I feel the thing that most people will crucify me for is the fact that P5's Emperor Arcana is my favorite in the series, yes, he beat Kanji for me but his social link has been pure gold. I feel my like for P5's social link is that it drops the pretense of gritty realism that P4 was going for and brings back the idea of the social links being wacky and comically dark in nature. None of this is helped by the presentation of them, the P5 protagonist may be one of the most calculating and sociopathic MC in the series.

    That's good to hear, I wish more developers *cough*Squenix*cough* would do that.

    So I just need four more Confidants unlocked, and barring how weird three of them are in the game proper, I think it's almost safe to say that P5 may have the best collection of social links/confidants in the series thus far. While there are certainly some stand out ones from previous entries, like the fact that no one is going to beat Tanaka as the best Devil Arcana or Nanako for Justice Arcana; P5 has yet to give me a Confidant I've felt blah about. In fact, I like certain characters better in their social link story than the main story proper. P5 certainly has my favorite incarnations of the Death and Temperance Arcana. I need to focus more on the Sun arcana as well since they are traditionally the most screwed up ones, yet it's kind of tame at the moment compared to the previous ones.

    I'm also happy cause I found out I can work part time at Lala Escargot the Drag Queen's bar.

    Yeah, barring the mind blowing nature of P3 when it first came out, I'm feeling like Persona 5 may haven beaten it as my favorite in the series. It feels like a perfect marriage between Persona 2 and the newer entries.
  9. View Conversation
    Yeah, I'm holding off on writing up a list right now because I'm pretty sure P5 is going to make it onto it.

    Well Witcher 3 did rank like number 4 or 5 on Game Informer's top 100 RPGs.

On FFVII (part of my Fmarathon rant)

by Fynn on 11-23-2016 at 11:16 AM
Decided this is worthy of being a blog-post, since it turned out to be a much bigger rant than I expected and I'm not sure the marathon's audience is really there for that kind of stuff

Frustrations of the writerly sort

by Fynn on 07-01-2016 at 11:13 AM
So there's this thing I've been struggling for quite some time. I don't want to call it a "writer's block" because it kind of seems like an excuse for being lazy. And it usually doesn't last long. This is something that's been eating at me for a long time.

I just kinda feel that I can't write anymore.

I mean, I still write articles for the site sometimes and I write other texts at my work, but it seems like, creatively, I've dried up. I'll come up with ideas and flesh

On story expectations

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 11:57 AM
So this is kind of a general discussion, but the general rant I have is based on three popular 3DS RPGs: Bravely Default, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Shin Megami Tensei IV. Sorry if this is chaotic, as I'm just writing this as it comes into my mind. Also, spoilers from the three games abound.

All of those games were very well received, though for different reasons. SMT is kind of here to serve as a neutral ground, as the evaluation of its story is pretty divided, whereas the consensus

Character Appreciation: Junpei Iori

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 10:37 AM
This is in no way an idea I stole from Pumpkin, no siree.


Junpei Iori is a character from the Persona franchise. He first appears in Persona 3 and all of its subsequent releases as a playable party member. He becomes a social link character as well in the female path of Persona 3 Portable, though he isn't date-able. He is also playable in

Creativity ramble thing

by Fynn on 03-03-2016 at 01:02 PM
You know what I'm tired of?

People saying something must have been "made on drugs".

I mean, it's such an ignorant and dismissive statement that really undermines the creative power of the collective human consciousness. Yes, we can create things that go way beyond what we could normally imagine without the help of drugs, be it through teamwork or by one individual's highly evolved imagination.

The thing about imagination and creativity is that it is effectively
