specific questions about persona 3

#1 Posted by zaldar (93 posts) -

Sooo the used copy of this I picked up (that I think isn't fes unfortunately what is the difference anyway?) didn't have an instruction manual and it seems no one online has scanned one...so I have some specific questions. It seems to start more quickly than 4 but I am about 25 hours in (middle of second level of tarturus floor 42 or so) and I haven't been able to start any social links with my party members...should I be worried? (If date is important I have gone through two full moons). As well is every floor supposed to have some sort of access point? A couple didn't seem to...and oh boy did floor thirty with either way to many enemies or none but death coming quickly scared the crap out of me...

There are no Social Links with party members except for the female ones. I don't remember at which point you can engage in a social link with Fuuka, Yukari or Mitsuru, though.

Ever floor does not have an access point.

The FES version of Persona 3 adds "The Answer", which is a follow-up story to Persona 3 that explains some things about the ending. FES also adds other extra stuff like a Social Link with Aigis, being able to walk Koromaru, surveillance footage of the dorm, a bonus ultimate boss, a harder difficulty setting and it adds to the original ending of Persona 3 in "The Journey" with some aspects that I think would be a shame to miss out on.

That surveillance stuff was not in the original? Sorry OP you messed up. On topic, I am surprised you have not gotten social link with at least Yukari yet.

@zaldar: Yukari and Fuuka are both very late game links, and 2 other party member links happen even later (scarily so, if you are looking to rank10 them). I'm fairly sure you can start Fuuka during the summer but she requires a high Courage stat, Yukari was later than that (might be after summer break) and requires Charm.

mitsuru is after the school trip

Chihiro is all you need, bro.

Forget all those other bitches.

@psylah: Yeah! You can't go wrong with the androphobic treasurer who has problems standing up for herself.

@EquitasInvictus: She is my favorite so far but ok good to know that I haven't screwed up entirely on getting the others. Charm and courage is only at level 2 with academics finally up to three. Given how money seems to be much harder to get not going to be raising those quickly...

Odd I am getting different answers on some of them...can people who say you can get yuki now explain?

man I am going to have to find FES now...

@zaldar: I remember panicking about not having Yukari or Mitsuru's social link, too. You shouldn't have to worry, theirs just gets unlocked at later points of the game.

For example, there's a trip you'll take out of the dorm and it's not until after that trip you'll have Yukari's s-link.

Mitsuru requires max academics, she hints at it if you approach her after school on school grounds I think.

For Fuuka you'll need to join one of the non-sports artsy clubs and then have courage maxed.

It requires a bit of micromanaging your skill sets for the later two, but Yukari's will come naturally so don't worry about hers.

@EquitasInvictus: Ah ok I'm in the crazy homeec club now....I am amazed the french didn't invade Japan after persona 3 came out man...I really hope they never have an American exchange student in one of their games...all of the other clubs currently seem not to be accepting new members...and the old note on the door of the homeec room before it changed was really odd (and I think someone mentioned something about hearing words they thought were witch like...I'm assuming they just didn't recognize french..).

I all ready love Fuuka...though the voice gets old quickly the character is wonderful.

I was really hoping P3P would have a social link where Chihiro and Kenji were loaded on a rocket and launched into the sun. I'm a huge fan of Persona 3, but god damn those are two awful characters.

I think you get shuffle time more often when you defeat enemies with an all-out attack or with the main character, so it may be advantegeous to skip other party members' turns and finish the enemy off with whatever you named your dude.
