Brad on Persona 4: Golden "We're going to revisit that"

#1 Posted by Fistfulofmetal (678 posts) -

Or something a long those lines.

Speculation time: What did Brad mean when he said they were going to "revisit" Persona 4 Golden?

Review?

Quicklook?

Article?

Endurance Run?

@Fistfulofmetal: Ryan for sure and probably Brad (just got a Vita) are both playing/going to play through Persona 4 Golden. 
 
Edit: Didn't answer your question, but probably just Bombcast talk, maybe a review. Sony won't release capture tools for the Vita, so virtually zero chance of video content.

It means they will play the game. Talking about it on the Bombcast at some point.

No Endurance Run. No Quick Look.

Somewhat off-topic, but is it just me that think that's insane marketing by Sony? I mean, do they not want video game websites (and similar) putting up clear footage of their console? Or am I missing something?

Also we don't need another endurance run of the same game. I know they did it with Deadly Premonition but I bet they won't be doing that again. Probably a review or QL is the most they'll do.

I don't think Nintendo does either, they were just able to find the tools for the 3DS somewhere else.

I took it to mean the game's a strong candidate for 2013's 2012 Game of the Year since a lot of them will probably be playing it next year.

@theguy: I don't expect a review since I don't expect either of them will finish it for a long long time. Giantbomb may not always be the most timely with their reviews, but after a few months I think it's safe to say it won't happen.

Actually, Nintendo does. They provided press outlets with video capture units for DS games and did the same for 3DS games.

I imagine Brad was predicting 2013's 2012 GOTY.

No, it's not perfect. It's like getting long form quick looks of the same game on different platforms. Doesn't make sense when you can just go back and watch the old video as many times as you want. I don't want rehashed content.

No Endurance Run because A)no capture equipment(which is KA-RAZY on Sony's part!) and B)they could barely manage Chrono Trigger. Even if this would be twenty five percent shorter (or more, someone should figure out how much time was spent fusing) it would still take too many man hours to maintain.

I'm imagining bombcast talks, which I honestly can not wait for!

Ah, alright. I know there are 3rd party solutions for 3DS video capture out there, and they just use a camera for the small screen for WiiU stuff. So I wasn't exactly sure.

Like others said, I'm almost positive he means 2013's 2012 GOTY.

OK I should really just hurry up and buy this game before this comes to be. Haven't read / heard a single negative thing about the game, both the original and the Vita version.

The capture units for the 3DS weren't readily available at the handheld's launch, either. I'm not sure if they'll provide units for the Wii U controller, but they'll come eventually if they do.

I think he's talking about next year, for 2013's 2012 GotY.

@Jayzilla: Not really the same thing, as the best thing about Endurance Run's is seeing the guys reactions to what's going on. It's why I enjoyed the P4 ER so much despite knowing every last thing that would happen in that game already.

Not that I'm saying they should do an ER, just saying it's different.

Hopefully they don't do another endurance run, VInny and Jeff's original run was fucking perfect and classic, wouldn't mind a quick look with the orignal two guys who gave birth to the legend of Charlie though.

I will guess an award during the 2013 discussion will be named The Actual 2012 GOTY and will debate whether XCOM or P4 Golden is better and P4 Golden will win.
