Most of them, I think, though not all. He did Nocturne along with two other composers (Kenichi Tsuchiya and Toshiko Tasaki).

The only excuse needed is how great it looks. Previous Persona character designs actually frightened me, with the excessive use of eyelash and eyeliner and all. This style closer to modern anime works better. At least the old artist can still make kickass designs for the Personae.

I'm really excited for it, but I it better be really good or it'll ruin the others for me too D:
Is anyone else not bothering to wait for the english one? XD

The old art is pretty.... ._. I have no way to describe it. It's not bad, but it is definatly weird/terrifying.


and what, Velvet limo? It looks like Igor's going to kidnap the main character. "Step into my limo little boy, I've got candy"

I thought the games were going to have completely separate storylines.
P4 takes place 2 years after P3 and yes, they are supposed to be separate storylines but they're still going to be fighting the same Shadows only this time, it seems they can consume minds too and not just leave their "victims" in a mindless state. So it looks like the Shadows have evolved

(I still haven't played Persona 3, but I really want to. My PS2 is back in New York and I have no television; I ripped my PS2 BIOS but PS2 emulators aren't far enough along yet that I could buy the game and play it on my computer yet...)
Well, Valdra pretty much answered that question. You can find a list of Shoji's works on Wiki BTW

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoji_Meguro

I haven't actually tried it myself but doesn't PCSX2 run PS2 games fairly well? So long as your computer has the CPU power such as a duo core system. FFX ran very slow on my PC but on a friend's quad core system it ran flawlessly. Then again, maybe it's because that's the title they tried to get their emulators working for in the first place.

That's actually one of the things I like about the MegaTen series and P3. The designs are unique not just the usual designs you see everywhere.

Don't just make it normal looking. Make it extreme and stand out

Thing is with Tartarus in P3 was that you're only really supposed to do each level once as long as you get to the next teleporter so you don't have to do it all again. Only reason why'd you ever go back and redo any level is if you missed finishing any quest, or you're desperately in need of cash. (levels don't really matter as long you've got the right mix of Personas)

So if you're doing Tartarus over and over again and you're tired of it, you're doing it wrong IMO. Two nights a month at the most... the rest should be used to up your three social statistics ASAP. Also helps to rest the day before you go to Tartarus, so you become 'great' and be able to hit harder and crit more often.

I personally only redid Tartarus ever in the final stages in the game, when there's nothing else better to do than fight there.

I personally liked the original character designer better, as the more goth look suits Persona's darker themes better IMO. Not to mention it looks worlds apart from your usual character designs, giving Persona a different feel from all but the Megaten series.

Actually, somewhere around levels 100-150 you need to redo the same level at least 10 times to level up from 30 to 42 (minimum) to get diarama, which is the first group heal you can get. This because the following boss is rather unbalanced and will wipe you if you don't grind the levels and lv.42 is minimum required for the spell.

It's boring too. The reason why I haven't yet picked up the game again.

So many inaccuracies.

Diarama is the more powerful dia. MEdia is the first group healing spell. To get it, you just need the right persona and you may not have to level it up as much as you think, unless you were talking about Yukari. If you didn't get either of those spells before reaching the 100s, there was something wrong you did.

And don't quit on the damned game fool! You haven't reached the good parts of the game!

After watching the 17 minute trailer... it seems like a lot of things have changed since P3.

Spoiler for some stuff other people probably know by now...:

@ Kagedanji

Yeah, I meant "mediarama" instead of "diarama." Been a while since I played it. But according of the guides online, lv.42 persona is the earliest you can get it. And no: I did nothing wrong. My characters were at lv.33 at that time, so it meant I had to do a lot of grinding.

Picked the game today. That elementary school kid joined in and I finished with the 3rd level of Tartarus. Or at least I think it was the 3rd. Unless it was 4th.

True. But you can also reference it from Naruto, if all things fail. ^_^;

Forgot adding a few other names...

You spent too much time in Tartarus.
I don't need to grind that much, because of the extra part after each battle, the amount of bonus exp is just too great that it took me a small amount effort to catch up with the next boss.
And who played P3 for the battle anyway? Better spending your time for Social Link & your girl.
