A more plot-oriented reason: he feels that by giving advice to help save them now, they either don't die (after all, he'd rather they succumb), or that he can use them to recruit more girls. You know, some silly BS reason that makes some slight sense.

I still think it'll be from Homura's PoV, though.

Homura grabs Kyubey's face; also Brightslaps Madoka.

Slap doesn't look too forceful. Probably just a "snap out of it" slap.

As in Brightslap at half power.

From the looks of it, it looks like only the Bonus Route will be in Homura's perspective.

Considering how clear they defined Kyubey's character, I can't really suspend my disbelief. I suppose Kyubey is the closest to being omnipresent in the game before Madoka rises, but Kyubey's goal is still clearly different than the player's goal.

I dunno, a lot of people seem to want to see the witch form of various characters. That's what Kyuubey wants too.

People also want to see everyone make it out alive. Unless that choice is locked on a first playthrough, that's not very Kyubey-like.

The though of Homura as a witch is ... frightening. Time loops upon time loops, years and years of anger, frustration, despair and repressed emotions let loose as a entity that seeks only destruction. Can you taste the unbridled horror as bombs, bullets, harpoon missiles, golf clubs and who knows what else suddenly appear around you from all directions, scant millimeters from impact? It'd be a Bad End for all involved.

That was speculation, and Walpurgis was confirmed (I think?) to be made from more than one Witch as its name implies.

Yea, it was indeed confirmed that Walpurgis is composed of multiple witches.

Next week. The game that forced me into finally buying a PSP is coming out next week.

There are people eager to translate it, best of luck to them and let's hope the patch won't get stuck anywhere. In the meantime, random clicking, intuition, plot knowledge and AS/4chan/GameFAQs-browsing will have to suffice.

I hope the game gets an official English release. It's certainly a popular enough franchise.

I sure hope so, the game does look interesting enough.

Though they'd probably use the English cast, not that it matters.

The English cast is really good, so I'm fine with that.

I've witnessed horrible dubbing (Xenosaga 2), passable dubbing (Radiant Mythology) and actually nice dubbing (Rune Factory 3), but no matter whhich it is, I'll always prefer the original Japanese cast. First, because of voice acting being a bit more prominent and well-staffed sphere than overseas; second, because I trust the voice acting supervised by someone actually related to the original product, not just its localization. Besides, MadoMagi itself has a very strong cast, so being able to hear Aoi Yuuki or Chiwa Saitou, both already having good grip over their roles and the director-induced understanding of what the characters should be and sound like, is just great.
That said, I won't mind any dubbing since I'd easily welcome any mention of PMMMP getting an official English release. Besides, there are often undub patches to hang on to...

Some 70+ screenshots of the PSP game. Low-res. Beware, as they are spoilerific.

Here's one picture that really surprised me...
