It really says something when the press was more eager to tear into the trailer than to do any footwork in verifying its authenticity.
It's an unfinished game and the footage was obviously meant for some other purpose. At this point, I have no idea how to judge it, so I'll withhold any comment on the game and simply shake my head at the journalists that fell for it.
This kind of worries me, actually. Judging by this article and a few other sources I saw, a lot of them said things like "I can't prove that it's fake, and there's no reason for me to, despite the trailer looking like shit. Everyone else posted it up, so why shouldn't I?"
Not to say that I wouldn't do the same, but it's a reminder that people can still think that it's okay to do things just because everyone else is doing it.
@metalsnakezero: You'd actually buy skill cards? Well I guess when it came time to create uber Personas, that'd make sense - but to me, it just doesn't seem worth the trouble. Like you'd have to get rid of all your other Personas for the right card, you'd have to spend a day's time, and you'd be spending money? Dayumn homeboy I ain't got time for that.
Anyway Happy New Years Eve, guys. Here's today's goods.
