Indeed they should probably look into fusing Ishtar, especially if they can get Harlot's repel physical on it(that's pretty much the only reason they use her).

Posted by AdventChild

Did they not realise that this is the place near the beginning of the game?  Where they fought that fog but kept missing?

Posted by Floppypants

They certainly are rushing to the ending.  I hope their characters are strong enough to beat Izanami.

Getting close to my time. took me nearly 100 hours (something like 99hours 57 mins) to finish this game. It will be interesting to see how they handle the last fight, she has one bitch of a move.

The Satan persona is kind of funny looking actually.  It has 8 breasts on it's stomach.

At this point they should focus on getting to level 80 in order to fuse Futsunushi to get Primal Force and Matarukaja.  Ishtar would be nice as well.  At this point they are their team's buffer/debuffer with Yosuke and Chie doing the damage and Yukiko healing.

@AdventChild: It was, what, seven months ago when they did that? They've probably played through more games than you and I, in that time period, combined since then.

I really hope Jeff and Vinny get Yoshitsune/Satan/Beelzebub for the final boss...

Why would any video game that has an optional "true" ending make it a full length dungeon? I just want to see it end. . .

Seriously did they realy need to come up with another boss ?

They realized it in the last episode.

They didn't "come up" with another boss. It was the one intended the whole time.

Conclusion... please!!!

I wish they'd use the agne..whatever it's called that Chie learned.

They really don't seem to be enjoying it anymore and just playing for the sake of it, it makes a much less enjoyable viewing experience. Maybe they are just tired though...

Posted by MoTheHawk
@Stryfeman: I know, right?  If they really wanted the game to be over, they would have said "Yes" when the game prompted them to go home.  The entire point of pursuing the true ending is to be rewarded with more gameplay because you didn't want to leave yet.

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.

Who cares?  They can win without any.
Posted by Gary_Armstrong

This dungeon music... is really melancholic. It's really making me sad.
 
It didn't do that when I played the game last Christmas though. Odd.

@FluxWaveZ: What part of "FUSE SATAN" did you miss?

Oh, was it a direct quote in the video?  Sorry then, I haven't watched it yet.
Posted by Chaossebba

If they're underleveled, they can go to the Adachi Dungeon lowest levels, its like 3.5k exp down there

Posted by Myomoto
@FluxWaveZ: Not really, I was just joking. Jeff seemed pretty pumped about fusing him however..

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'....
Posted by Turambar
@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.

Welcome Satan into your hearts!

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

Awesome laughing at around 11:15.

I hope they realize Chie has a powerful new physical now too.

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!

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!

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.

@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?
Posted by MiserableGerm
@CH3BURASHKA: Of course, you obviously didn't have to point out that. I've been watching since basically the beginning.

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.

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.

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

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.

Actually, Jesus sorta appears in Persona 3, right? They call him Messiah, but he's still Anime Emo Jesus.
