Hey, so remember how I said I was keeping track of all my other image counts so I'd know when Persona 3 FES surpasses them all? I'm pretty sure I'm only a few updates away from blowing past that shit. And I'm not even close to done.

Akihiko's into some weird shit.
"Oh, that Koromaru!" [AUDIENCE LAUGHTER]
I don't think that's the word you want.
About what, you don't want to know.
The answer to life's most important questions.
I guess this sounds like me?
"The cops won't believe a thing you say."
"You hear that, Maiko? He's MY man!"
"Where do babies come from?"
"You kinda just get lost in the moment. You know what I mean?"
"That your room smells like kerosene. Were you planning on mixing me a drink? You're so thoughtful."
Go ahead, Yukari. Do it.
I'm now having a hard time deciding whether Junpei or Yukari's the worse character.
Reaction shot #42394230582323508235235023940482....
"Probably because of this giant, bloodless spike piercing my brain."
Get it? Darkest hour?
I don't think anybody did.
"You can read all about it in my manifesto."
Don't make that face EVER AGAIN.
"You. Me. That fire extinguisher. Let's do it."

Still, for as crazy as Brooklyn Rage is, he still has trouble comparing to Yu Narukami:

Not sure about that, I heard it was straight up BAD though. P4 anime on the other hand was amazing. Did you ever finish all the girls on Katawa Shoujo? That was almost a year ago, time flies.

Uh, guys...

And there's yet more below the fold.

This is update #43, by the way.

FUNKY STUDENT!
The teachers have theme songs? Why didn't I go to this school?
In addition to...?
That's a mistake.
Which teacher is this and why aren't I in their class?
"Modern" language" You mean she was speaking like a samurai up until this point? AND I WASN'T INFORMED?!
I think somebody was just fucking with you.
Which mood? There are a billion moods that could apply here.
How wrong you are.
"Even though you're very clearly tied up against your will."
"Yes, Junpei. I'm Mexican. What of it?"
The judgmental disapproval of Chidori. It pierces all.
Rectangles mean man.
Were you even listening, Ken?
This is a JRPG, alright.
"PUT IT ON. IT SHALL PLEASE ME."
I don't think that's the odd part about this.
Because this is 100% possible in Persona 3.
"Damn it, Fuuka! You said this make up would match my skin tone!"
You mean the Greek figure who murdered her children and rode away on a magic dragon? That explains a lot.

#263 Posted by smcn (879 posts) -

I liked The Answer. Then again I also liked the original ending to Mass Effect 3 so I'm obviously a monster.

#264 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

So since that last update, I've reached 100 updates in that screenshot, meaning I've got over 2000 images of this thing. And I'm only midway through November.

"I use a generic personal pronoun, and he accuses me of racism. Real fucking funny."
"No, this is an actual gun. GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES, BITCHES!"
"........Maybe we should leave them be."
Just look at all the emotional instability just oozing off her.
That way, they won't have to give her a new portrait.
"I love you. Here is a watch to commemorate that love."
He gets worse.
Yes.....that's the reason.
PERSONAPERSONAPERSONAPERSONA.
"Well, you're about to."
"Look at that guy! He got an egg in the middle of his beef bowl. He's the shit!"
Less Bikini Party Summer and more Friday the 13th.
Japan: where Pokemon is a subject of small talk.
I bought a movie theater just for this thread. Appreciate that.
Does the narrator want to fuck us? Because I'm game.
I think he's onto us.
Who did you think it was? (Answer: his dead son.)
Because hair is always a deal breaker for old Buddhist monks.
Just in case you doubted that this is a Persona game.
Like, together? This is what happens when there's only one cop in the world.

Consider this a preview for tomorrow, of sorts. I'm gonna make a billion Katawa Shoujo references, but since I have a much better Photoshop for tomorrow's update (it had to get mod clearance and everything!), allow me to post this other Photoshop, just to give you an idea of where I'm going with this shit.

#265 Edited by pyromagnestir (4247 posts) -

Well tomorrow's update is going to be full of references I don't get, then. Oh well, I am curious about this image that needed mod clearance, so I'll have that to look forward to.

#266 Edited by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

To quote one of the great philosophers of our time, this feature "goes on and on and on and on. Don't stop believin'".

You were never seen again. Try again
[AUDIENCE LAUGHTER]
"How much money do you ha-never mind. Just steal that bike and ride as far as your little legs will carry you."
I'm gonna have to Photoshop Muscle Man's face onto yours at some point, aren't I?....is what I titled this picture before I did just that a couple of pages ago.
"Specifically, that guy on the bench over there. STOP FUCKING MY MOM, OLD MAN! YOU'LL NEVER BE MY DAD!"
It was here that I noticed THIS BED IS FUCKING ENORMOUS.
Chidori will never approve of your bullshit. (Also, why is she allowed to wear all this at the hospital? Wait, is she wearing a bathrobe? What kind of hospital is this?)
It's like Rin Tezuka grew hair and arms.
You know I have.
It's like they wrote it specifically to look like a translation error.
"The guidance councilor is gonna have a word with you about respecting people's kneecaps."
Junpei's gonna be feeding her oranges by the end of this, isn't he?
"Get your hand off my thigh before I call the cops"?
Actually...
"What happened to the good old days, when you could give a kid an ice cream cone without getting all these weird looks?"
You know what? I think I'm moving back to my earlier Hanako conjectures.
This dog wants to fucking party.
Across the globe.
It was over before it even began.
I'd ask how that makes sense, but this IS the series where you can just trade Personae like they're effing trading cards.

And here it is, the image that disturbed every mod who looked upon it.

The best part is that I'm working on something far more disturbing that's also gonna require mod intervention.

Hold on to the feeeeeeelinn!!!!

Dammit, now that's stuck in my head. Streetlights, people, living just to find emotion. Hiding, somewhere in the (high pitch) NNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!

Also, that's not the worst picture I've seen on GB.

EDIT: Also, does anyone know if there's a way to re-fuse Surt and grind him up to get his heart item if you accidentally hit "no" the first time? I tried that last night and it didn't happen, but apparently there's a chance thing about it.

#268 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

#269 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

In the beginning, there was nothing. And then VGK said, "Let there be a shitton of screenshots documenting it." And it was alright.

"What parts of a dog are and aren't safe to eat. Which city has the least violent homeless population. How to make a bomb out of cherry soda."
"Remember: you'll only have an hour before the doc wakes up. Make sure nobody else sees you."
"No. I barely know who you are. Plus you've been lying to me since we first met."
Is this going to be a thing between them? I feel like it's going to be a thing between them.
"People talking, having friendly conversation? What sorcery is this!?"
"The orphanage. The therapy. The unbelievably creepy dolls on her shelf."
"Why not?" "No, seriously, why the drugs?"
What's stranger: light that emits temperature, or the fact that this is the Black Knight's blade from Path of Radiance?
Let's implicate the shit out of Shinjiro!
Because there's nothing sneakier than a fucking claymore.
That will soon be replaced by the pungent odor of foot.
Fragile Dreams + Katawa Shoujo = Persona 3.
"Blurry and motionless. I think I have glaucoma."
You know, for mobility.
"Look at me! I'm doing it like my Persona!" "Good job, Koromaru! Who's a good boy?"
"Is this bringing back any memories, Yukari? Of loooooove?"
Why do you have to say it like that?.....Wait, HOW do you say it like that?
He's not talking about magic; he's just gonna discuss history in the sappiest way imaginable.
Isn't the Bible already a bible of magic?
"Pineapple! 47! Hunter Thompson!" "Stop trying to break my concentration!"

It was only yesterday that I realized how similar the plot is to an episode of Adventure Time:

I guess that means Gunther is the Ice King's Persona.

#270 Edited by believer258 (11642 posts) -

A quick Google search reveals that "Aroundight" was the name of Lancelot's sword in Arthurian legend. I thought the word was ripe for a reach-around joke, but whatever.

EDIT: Also, I'm on January the third and I'm grinding the fuck out of the last few levels of Tartarus.

#271 Posted by Petiew (1332 posts) -

@believer258: You have to get rid of the one you have and fuse a new one if you want the item. Save beforehand though, since you're not always guaranteed to get one with the heart.

Also, leave claymore propped up around a corner, target skipping down the hallway, skips into claymore. Pretty sneaky.

#272 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

@believer258:

Given how many Arthurian references there are in Path of Radiance, that isn't surprising.

I tried that. I have the personas to re-fuse him and the money to buy them with. The patience, though, that's running thin. Lucky I have the social link maxed, though, so it should only take an hour. I'd really like to null Mitsuru's weakness.

It's just pictures of him topless.
"In your gut. Now hand it all over."
"And tell him he's off the team. CUT THE DEAD WEIGHT."
You know, Kazushi, when people say they have a third leg, they don't mean a literal leg.
Yukari just felt a chill go down her spine, and she doesn't know why. In fact, if you click this particular image...
"They figured out who's been unplugging patients."
Death is your punishment for slacking off. Welcome to Japan, motherfucker.
"Uh, Chidori, have you been taking the medicine the doctors have been giving you." "No. Why?" "..........No reason."
See that, Aigis? SHE can pass as human.
"Knives as far as the eye could see..."
(Wait, why is her dialgoue in parentheses? Can Brooklyn read minds?)
Mission accomplished.
Well....yea. That's kind of how dreams work.
Maiko isn't going to take this too well.
For whatever reason, she's very pleased with the abrupt finger-blasting you're giving her in public.
You're gonna have to be more specific than that.
enthusiasm, will you ever find the man of your dreams?

#287 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -
I figured it out.

#288 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

If I were to update this every day, I'd still have enough updates for a few months. Remember that.

"No, I'll just stick to hanging out with teenage boys late at night, when there's nobody around."
"Why are you calling me? We live in the same building." "..............."
"I haven't seen her in a while, and neither of us have been able to find good ticket prices."
How does he reach that alarm clock? Wouldn't that be awkward as hell?
"Forever and ever and ever."
How terribly depressing.
"Make your friends green with envy when you show them your devotion to Christ!"
$100 for a health supplement? Jesus!
Seen here.
Maybe you two should sit somewhere else.
"I'm slowly transforming into a frog, damn it. How could you possibly understand that!?"
Well, that's the end of that Social Link.
So you want to be a dog now? What the hell is your character, again?
Where's he find the time between robot fights and Resident Evil?
Which would make him just as scary.
AW SNAP.
IE He cannot deny it.
Are you sick? Why'd you put it like that?
"He says he has no idea how a magazine lazily plastered on his face would have fooled us. Frankly, I agree."
Notice how Fuuka's the only one who's surprised.

#289 Edited by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

Another maxed Social Link. Am I going to max them all by the end of this feature? Aw hell no.

"Why does he think that's how you're supposed to read it?"
For some reason, he sounds exactly like Solid Snake on this line, despite not being voiced by David Hayter.
Where's the security camera that was filming all this?
"How?" ".........I don't know."
How would you even enact something like that without going to war?
"No. Slowly. I want to savor this."
But he's not wearing pants.
"Our friendship is worth about $3-10."
There's nothing luckier than something you use in a severe accident, right?
"I'm pregnant, and YOU'RE the father!"
"...I was severely confused. Shouldn't he have been grilling me?"
AW HELL YEA.
Coming to theaters this summer: the haunting tale of one girl's hatred for Stupei Supreme.
Perfect for someone like Brooklyn Rage.
I see no harm in giving this to Ken.
What a dick move.
Since when would these make you less likely to trip?
Killing people with the power of French theater.
ROBOTS DO NOT GET TIRED. WHY ARE YOU TIRED?
Ever since you started hanging out with Yuko, she's been meddling in all your other Social Links.

#290 Posted by pyromagnestir (4247 posts) -

I always thought the idea was someone was setting up voyeur cameras around the house and teasing the main character with clips for some kinky reason. At the very least that's the plot of my fan fic.

#291 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

@pyromagnestir:

Given what other screenshots I have, this makes all the sense in the world.

#292 Edited by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

Guess what?

And I'm not even halfway through the damn feature.

"Well, fuck."
What astute powers of observation.
Bunkichi doesn't hide his porn well, does he?
"Believe me, it's not the first."
Wait, $60 for a fucking manga?
That's fucking scary!
He's taught you well, Chihiro.
"Just dump 'em off the pier. Nobody will ever know."
Brooklyn's greatest weakness: illiteracy.
YUKARI POWER, ACTIVATE.
"That's not worrying, right?"
All of them immediately off screen.
Turns out she didn't enjoy the grope fest a second time.
Clearly.
"But when you two finally do get it on, can you let me watch?"
"You hear me, China?"
More average, really.
Is she part moth?
"Sucking her dick, right?" "Not even close."
From Tanaka. Of course.

In addition to that lovely stat from before, today marks the first video I've taken of the game. Behold the mediocrity of HyperCam2!

#293 Posted by pyromagnestir (4247 posts) -

I have three thoughts on today's edition of the 2013 P3 Endurance Run (1997 style)

  • I like how I just know I can click on any link in which a mom is mentioned and find Yukari creeping
  • Oh god, the moon has acquired video making capabilities! We must quickly dispatch UN investigators to make sure they are using this technology responsibly and not just using this as a stepping stone to getting their hands on WMD.
  • Talking to yourself is totally not worrying. If it were I would totally have to be worried about myself because more than half of my conversations take place when I'm alone, but I'm not worried because that isn't worrying. Okay?!

I just finished it. If I have three hints, it's

1) Nullify as many elements as you can.

2) Be at least level 75

3) Set aside about two hours for the final boss and pray that no one gets charmed.

#296 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

2) Be at least level 75

For a certain Persona? I'm already past level 75 and plan on reaching the 90s so I can summon Messiah and Metatron. Metatron's gonna be there for all the El Shaddai jokes I can squeeze out of it, and Messiah's there because I want to make Jesus my bitch.

3) Set aside about two hours for the final boss and pray that no one gets charmed.

I have discovered a pause function on my emulator, so this shouldn't be much of a concern. The tricky part will be hitting "Resume" instead of "Boot CD".

Nah, I meant the player character. It was quite a challenge to beat him at 75, but if you plan on doing it in the 90's then you can probably disregard everything I said, except for the bit about being charmed. I did quite a bit of grinding throughout the game and can't imagine anyone actually putting in enough time to get to the 90's, what with the fact that the more levels you get, the less experience from low level enemies you get (and I was already getting pitiful amounts of XP in the higher floors.) That seems more like a New Game Plus thing.

Where are you in the game, specifically?

#298 Posted by Video_Game_King (36026 posts) -

@believer258:

Fortunately, I have rediscovered the "split the party up" function, leading to crazy amounts of XP, especially with a 10 card in play.

January 11, according to my most recent dated screenshot.

#299 Posted by Mento (2441 posts) -

Best part about Metatron is you can fuse one that's immune to everything. Well, besides Megidolaon. Trouble is, the optional boss just instantly fries you if you try that shit with them.

I specifically built an indestructible Metatron to whiz through Persona 4 on a second playthrough if I ever had the desire (though now I'd probably go with P4G). Of course, I didn't reckon on the Compendium charging ten times more money than you could ever earn in the first half of the game. Probably should've saved some cash before making that Clear save.

Does that still apply between P3 and P4? Because I know they changed a lot of the Personas around between those two games (I think Lilith was a level 20-ish Persona in 4).
