Hm, multiple girlfriends?

#1 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

How does Persona 4 handle the protagonist having multiple girlfriends? I want to know before I accept Ai even though I despise her. However, I just think the normal "just friends" dialogue is going to be extremely lame. Is it possible to maintain without reversing?
 
Should I wait for Yukiko/Yumi or just go and start accepting everyone?
 
On hindsight, this topic sounds really sketchy.

No penalties what-so-ever.

I had multiple going at the same time and never noticed any penalty. Might be some math in the background making it take longer to get the next Social Link level, but nothing that stood out to me.
 
Also think it triggers some of the more interesting little scenes like when Yukiko finds you out with Ai at the mall.

i had yukiko and chie, but screwed something up with naoto and i think rise. but as far as i could tell no penalties. the game doesn't even acknowledge it aside from in a menu pretty much anyways, it doesn't do anything to the story or interactions there.

Actually, I don't really like that pic much. The proportions on Chie's hips are all messed up,  her waist looks like a bottle of cola and the eyes are too big. That is to be expected, though. Since Soejima didn't draw that. The manga team did do a nice job overall trying to emulate his style...The shading is almost accurate and they did get down the way he draws the noseholes and the lips.

I don't really see the issue when you can be "just friends" with anybody else anyway?

Because you can then see the dating scenes for everyone instead of restricting yourself to 1 girl. We all know they're better.
 
I decided to be "just friends" with Ai, because I hate her so much. I did the lovers route with everyone else so far except for one, because I haven't unlocked the S.Link yet.

@Aus_azn: Fair enough I suppose, never thought of that. 
@floodiastus: Nothing really dodgy about that picture, and if you're that worried I'm sure Chie is legal age anyway :p

@tapuki: Chie is 16

She's 16 at the beginning of the game. 17 by the end of it.

She looks like 12..... who cares what her fictional age is.

@tapuki: Fair enough. Honestly, that was on my mind when I had specified her age but I'm not sure the person you were responding to is from the UK.
#20 Posted by Bocam (3805 posts) -
@tapuki:  So your younger then 18?
#21 Posted by KawaiiInbou (38 posts) -
@Bocam: No, but I also never said I would do stuff to Chie :p 
Told you I was digging myself a hole.
