These barely audible lyric-packed songs in Japanese video games get repetitive real fast.

Yeah, but are any as truly awful as Persona 3's memorable hook "Some dancers/Wanna put you in a TRANCE's!/ Let's PAWTY!" I swear, my roommate can recite every single some from that game from the 200+ hours I subjected him to.

Sorry Jeff, Manteca Waterslides was closed years ago.  Like early 2000's.

Jeff mentioning the omelet that ruins the rest of your day reminds me of the Subway breakfast sandwiches. Those things made me wanna take a nap immediately after finishing it. Had to stop getting them cuz they were completely throwing off my schedule.

So the P3 Messiah is supposed to be more of a generic idea covering the messiah myths present in many religions, not just the Christian one, but I will now never be able to see it without thinking "Anime Emo Jesus."  Nicely done.

Thanks for the link.  That helps to explain Izanami's presence in P4, and isn't just some random final boss.

@Mistral: Yeah, but the video page itself is normally up before the video is put live to the masses. You can usually use the search function to find the videos early; since the page isn't there you can kinda tell that today's episode hasn't been recorded yet.

"Late video today as well? The page for ep. 153 isn't up yet so... "

It''ll be about 40 minutes until the video goes up, at the very least; It's 7:18 here, and the videos don't usually go up any earlier than 8AM.

" HOW MANY ENDINGS DOES THIS GAME HAVE ??? Seriously did they realy need to come up with another boss ? "

remember the name of the game? Shin megami tensei? its definition is "goddess reincarnation" so basically izanami is the bowser of persona, she is the main villain behind it all usually or at least what the story is about so this was the end they had in mind from the beginning "
Not really. Izanami is the heroine of Megami Tensei (a pre-SMT game based off of the poorly written original book series), but not involved in later games.  The actual main Shin Megami Tensei games* are about the end of the world, usually caused by Yahweh, and a hero who has the choice to fight against God with the help of Lucifer, who takes various forms.  *Persona is part of the "Megami Ibunroku" spinoff series in Japan; Atlus USA added the "Shin Megami Tensei" prefix for more sales in America. "
Izanami is also one of the creator gods of Japan along with Izanagi in the Shinto religon. Since like as mentioned in the previous comment all of the Megami Tensei series and it's various spinoffs the whole game ends up with you taking mythological gods who for some reason want to destroy the world. For instance Persona 3 *Spoilers*   Has you take on Nyx the primordial greek  god of night, and in FES Erebus the deity of shadow and darkness and son of Nyx.   Also as said in previous posts YHVH does show up in some of the mainline Shin Megami Tensi and Megami Tensi series usually trying to destroy the world because he's bored or is pissed off someone is trying to rebel against his orders like in Shin Megami Tensi (1 I suppose) where he sends Jeff and Vinny's friend Thor in disguise to destroy Japan via ICBM's.  Now an astute person would realize that Thor is from Norse mythology and not Christian mythology but that's just how the story goes a bunch of gods try to destroy the world/humanity for some reason or another and the protagonist and their friends have to somehow find out what's happening and fix everything or watch the world be destroyed. That isn't definitive but it's usually some sort of varient of that with a pretty cool story made out of it.  Now that is why this multiple series of games dating back to the 90s or so are awesome. "
I did not know that. Now I know, and knowledge is power.

On a side note, to those that didn't quite notice, no, Satan is not the ultimate form of any arcana.  He's just a dude hanging out with 8 (6? )breasticles on his stomach.  So don't be too disappointed when he doesn't prove to be as awesome as his name would imply.

@iAmJohn: Christian probably isn't the right word for it.  Socially conservative would be more active.

The Boy Scouts are Christian?  I'm not so sure, dude; my friend Dan's jewish and he became an Eagle Scout back in high school.

Manteca Sucks. And so does Stockton. 
No offense to anyone who lives there but if you do, your city sucks and smells like a Dairy farm.

@CH3BURASHKA: Of course, you obviously didn't have to point out that. I've been watching since basically the beginning.
Posted by ch3burashka
@MiserableGerm: By now, you should realize that Vinny ain't that great at the strategy, much less 'remembering shit he has', aspects at this game. Must I bring up bufu?

Fantastic and hilarious episode. I laughed at how Vinny and Jeff are in the true ending dungeon...90 hours in...and Vinny is NOW noticing Charlie's sword stance. Go Endurance Run!

i love how they see the chests gaurded by 2 enemies and avoid them not knowing their a characters 2nd best weapon.

Edited by Mezmero

Great run as usual fellas.  Fusing Satan doesnt seem like such a big deal.  Sure the name is meaningful in American society at large but unless you have hang-ups on offending religious gamers, just think of him as a Judeo-Christian boogeyman.  His design more depicts him as the "serpent of temptation" from eden anyway.  How is that reference any more offensive than mocking all the personas from Egyptian, Scandanavian, or even Shinto beliefs?  As a side note, I always direct my comments to the makers of the video after watching the video and not to other commentators like some forum thread.  :P 
 
Keep up the great work giantbomb!

So no one thought "Use Debilitate Just in Case?" for Neo Minataur. Of course they offed him pretty quickly but...ya know?

Welcome Satan into your hearts!

@Meatsim: Actually, the "you have welcomed *persona* into your heart" only happens with shuffle times.  It'd be more "Satan has emerged from the sea of your soul."  Birthing Satan, now that's something.

Because SMT is huge here unlike Persona? ;)
 
Anyway, the guys should probably equip Charlie with a Null Fear accessory if they get one. They can be found in the gold chests in the last dungeon. No particular reason, just sayin'....
