Nice... Just when I was asking myself how to kill some time before leaving the house. Perfect timing.

Oh, if it's not too late, check the TV.  There's a show that only airs on Sundays.  I'm not sure if it started yet, but worth a try.

People around school and town will start giving you quests now that you fulfill by killing stuff in the first dungeon.  You only get what they need when you take the quests.  Unfortunately the last 2 quests aren't given out until 5/18.  So you can go in the TV but will have to return if you want to do the quests,.

Also fishing has now opened up-talk to the old guy down by the river

Hell no.

Urgh Yukiko is such a downer. She needs to get laid.

@Babblinmule @endaround That really just depends how much you spend on any particular component of the game. In theory- you could spend 2-3 times as much time as you technically need to in the dungeons- grinding and collecting items- beating the bonus bosses- etc.

The way the game is designed- there are inherent limits on how long you can spend doing any particular activity. SP, Cash, the time/length/relative length of any particular activity. Time blocks are the universal limiter- whereas SP is the combat limiter. As you progress through the game- and especially during multiple playthroughs- these limiters become less and less- as your ability to be both more efficient with your time as well as less efficient (You can spend as much time in the dungeons as you want- etc.) increases.
The calendar/day system  is fairly linear throughout the game- as it was in Persona 3. Individual activities might be difficult- but the patterns of effort stay consistent throughout the game- which is why people say that it gets easier further into the game. This is all a catalyst for the skills/understanding you gain as you progress further and further. The force that acts in opposition to this is the weakness/affinity system. Further into the game- your able to more quickly analyze the weaknesses of enemies- but most of the time- its still very much comes down to a process of elimination. Other forces that limit the player's advancement- regardless of the player's actual development- include high HP bosses/enemies, status changing skills, and non-traditional attacks. There is also the choice that the player makes regarding the original difficulty and the demands they make on their own- like beating the bonus bosses, maxing out all the social links, completing quests-etc. Persona does a very good job of rewarding players for just about any activity or thing they do- but said activities are hardly the most efficient path to completing the game. The counterpoint to this is the story- which exists as infinite fragments- spread amongst all the characters in the game. This is meant to represent a reality that is far closer to our own- which can be difficult to portray- but an amazing tool if can use it. The effects of this can be brought into the light by the situation Jeff and VInny are in. They want to consume the story parts- thats what they're most excited about. However- to truly get the full story of the world of Persona- you actually have to deal with everyone. Or you don't. It all depends on how far you want to go- and thus- the most directly player controlled component of the game- is also the one they'll most likely be drawn into- thus- putting it back into Persona's developer's side of the court.

This might not make sense- but I feel its fairly accurate.
Apologies for the lack of formatting- I was just thinking.

Posted by SunKing

Oh, awesome, this game cracks me up.

Posted by Moridin

Posted by Death_Burnout

This one was hilarious!

Posted by Naoto

I actually find the dungeon episodes more entertaining than watching scenes, and I think it was pretty apparent in this episode why. Still, I had some good laughs!


Please give us a player so that we can watch all of these in order without having to click play or change videos. I just want one loooooong endurance video to watch.

"Big Johnson says: Liquor in the front, Poker in the rear!" XD

Posted by RipTheVeins

haha, my favorite part of these now is Ryan and Brad screaming things in the background :P

Posted by Aaox

Short and sweet.

Posted by pawsoffury

Sounded like Ryan was playing Resi5 in the background with a "I need ammo" sounding at 0:30 :P
That aside, funny episode!

Posted by Helmetz

why does the only black person in the game have to be the "pusher man"???

Posted by EndlessMike

So I really like Yukiko. Her attitude is strangely attractive.

Posted by AllanIceman

Liqour in the front and poker in the rear!!  HAHAHAAHA!!

Posted by LifeByDegrees

Yukiko's laughing fits are the reason why I like her character at all. The rest is fairly hit and miss.
