Alright, thanks for all the help, everyone!

I think the Polygon review said that both the P3 and P4 parties are midway through the events of their respective games when this time travel stuff happens in PQ. That would explain certain character choices, like why P4A characters and Marie aren't in it.
As long as the game takes place before whatever "HUGE thing" that @wemibelec90 mentioned happens, then I should be fine.
Out of curiosity, roughly how far into the game does that huge thing in P3 happen? I don't want to know anything about what it is that happens, just a ballpark estimate of whether it's in the middle of the game, mid-late, or right at the very end. I ask because if it's somewhere in the middle, I might not be too far from just seeing it myself.
I remember hearing that the Persona Arena/Ultimax story modes take place after the events of 3 and 4, and subsequently address major plot twists/turns from the two games. I've watched the P4 endurance run in its entirety, but am still working my way through P3 (I'm in like September, I think).
Should I hold off on playing Q until I finish P3? I was hoping to pick it up to play on the road for Thanksgiving, but not if it'll ruin anything major in P3.
The last few times I've tried to upload pictures with the "My desktop" option, I've gotten the message "Error uploading images: Internal Server Error". This happens in both forum posts and comments.
I originally tried uploading this image from my computer directly into this post, but it gave me the error again. I was able to upload the image file to imgur and then use the "upload from URL" option.
It's somehow both disheartening and reassuring to see so many people share my profound disappointment with Ron Gilbert.
Best of luck to him, though. I hope he proves all of us wrong by making an awesome and wildly profitable game.
@bbalpert: Strange to reserve the 1 score to games they can't finish. If it's complete garbage it's complete garbage, regardless of whether you can actually finish the game or not. But whatever!
Justin mentions on his new(ish) mini-podcast, Quality Control, that he was brought to tears by this game, but just barely managed to drag himself across the finish line. 1 point scores are games so bad that he (or whoever is doing the review) can't even manage THAT. So I guess it's the difference between completely intolerable and juuuuuust barely tolerable.
