Anyone know what kind of penalty alonso will get for cutting that one turn?

What a crazy race, I swear every time danny says something is historically one way the exact opposite happens lol. And what a move by hamilton at the end

Everyone keeps talking about the gameplay but I haven't heard a lot about the story. Is it any good? (no spoilers please)

So fair warning to anyone planing on playing through these games again with the DLC, lair of the shadow broker is broken as shit I cant get it to go past the car chase no matter what I do

I just love the "glitches make this thing bullshit" people.

I don't mind any of the absurd glitches, but I draw the line at rebooting the game and/or reloading a savegame. Technically that should not count as a continuous single segment run, but hat's just my private opinion.

I am pretty sure there are different records for glitched runs and 100% runs

I swear danny has some weird power over what happens in F1, he mentions Pastor never finishing a race he DNF's he claims nothing exciting ever happens at the german GP hella crashes

No one in the Arena games goes to the Velvet room at all, the only mention of it is the character select screen. But those are canon and this is pure fanfare.

Didn't they say this was non-canon? I got the sense that they were given license to kinda just do whatever because of that. Maybe I'm completely wrong.

Yeah, definitely gonna skip this one. A silly, non-canon story probably would have been enough to make me not wanna play it, but I just cannot get into these first person grid-based dungeon crawling games at all for some reason.

According to wikipedia the atlus USA people claimed that this game is indeed cannon

You're right. I found this article that confirms it. Don't know if anything else has popped up that contradicts it, but here's a quote from the article:

The biggest takeaway is that Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is canon, a representative from Atlus USA explained. However, the representative could not explain why the game is canon, since that would supposedly be a story spoiler.

Spoiler? There's a big friggin CLOCK TOWER in the game. There's gears all over the art work. My guess from the very beginning was that it was time travel.

Time travel can make anything canon, as exemplified by Futurama and Rick & Morty.

I'm sure it's canon in that it wraps up neatly and doesn't need to effect the rest of the series or ever be mentioned again. In that sense, it's either canon or not depending on if you want it to be.

Like "Whoa, both of our groups got pulled out of the timeline of our games simultaneously into this pocket dimension where we learned, laughed, and loved together and beat the big boss, but now that we're going back to our own adventures the process of travelling back will give us very specific amnesia as to what's happened in this pocket universe adventure! We may forget each other, but we'll still be bonded in our heaaaartssssss............................."

I bet that's what Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright does too, since that also takes place at specific points in each series' chronology. Hyrule Warriors may do this too, unless they decide to just go balls out and say "fuck it". (They've said Hyrule Warriors is non-canon, but it could just as easily fit this "inconsequential mode" where you can consider it canon or not just as easily.)

You may be right but there is already precedent for these 2 games taking place in the same world. In the re release of P3 on the PSP a younger Yukiko works at the inn that the characters stay at on a vacation event. And minor characters from P3 also appear in P4 proper. Not to mention all the cross over stories from Arena which I am pretty sure are considered cannon at least in the P4G version since Yosuke references how "things got crazy last time you visited in the spring" in the new ending that was added to P4G.

This series is getting comic book complicated with its cannon so it wouldn't surprise me that much if Q continued that. It makes me somewhat hopeful that the p3 and p4 characters will appear in some role in 5. Which they could somewhat easily pull off since all of the not original game P4 stuff has set somewhat of a personality for the main character (even if they do spell his name wrong).

I'm not saying P3 and P4 are different worlds. I'm saying Q probably takes place in a pocket dimension outside of time and space, which is why people from the same world, but two different time periods (since P4 takes place a few years later) could interact simultaneously. So they both get sucked in at different points in time, but appear together, and when they go back to their own times, they "forget".

Both games already involve alternate dimensions. I'm just saying that this game takes place in one of those outside of our version of time.

Could be right its japan so who knows until someone translates that game or it comes out. But my money is still on dream sequence of ether p3's main character or teddy that the rest of the characters get pulled into.

@corruptedevil: I dont mind ether way if they want 5 to be its own thing that's fine if they want to continue those characters in some minor "hey looks its Chie" 20 second scene I am good with that too. I just want to know what the fuck that game is going to be (other then the obvious stuff). And I wouldn't count out 3 and 4 being in 5 just yet since japan has a bad habit of running popular characters into the ground.

@corruptedevil: You are clearly not thinking with your anime glasses on. It wouldn't surprise me if the entirety of the game takes place in the main character of P3's mind since Hes locked to some door for all time or something like that.

But then again with the chibi art style it could just as easily be happening in teddy or rise's minds
