Posted by SmasheControllers

Can't wait to pick this up on Tuesday.

Awesome quick look EX. Less then a week is too long!

Posted by nemesisND1derboy

Oh man, they need to hurry with the European release of this game. Fuuuuuuuck.

Posted by Devoid

Man, I wanna play this game so bad. Zen United, get your shit together!

Also, I'm pretty sure it is pronounced "or-ji-a", or at least that's what I remember from P3.

I am sad that the first comment on this video is not "Aha! Is this our chance?"

With the glacial pacing of that story mode, it's a little less surprising that it's going to be thirty-plus hours long.

The whole Chie voice is really off putting but I guess that what happens when you get more obscure voice actors. Game looks great though.

Ressentiment is a word. It was actually brought up in Persona 4 if I recall, a class quiz right?

Rumor-loving student is back!

Expand that niche with another niche.

Yeah! All 6 of you!

Man, this whole region locking business is such an effing bummer.

You are correct.

Posted by GuardianKnux

This looks way better than I expected. Much more excited to play this now!

That music.

Xbox version? I don't know how I feel about that for Persona and that d-pad...

Didn't you think they might be using arcade sticks or better pads?

YES.

Story mode may be substantial but it also seems unnecessarily long winded. So yeah, a persona game I guess.

The storymode is way too slow for its own good, but that Chie part isn't very representative of the writing for the most part. Only the first 10-15 minutes of the original 4 members is as glacial as that.
 
The real problem with story mode's pacing is that too many character stories follow the same basic beats. You're way better off only playing 6-8 of them rather than all of them.

Looks and plays like KoF13.

Back in the TV... Bitches!

Cast more Bufu!

Posted by Orange_Pork

@phrosnite: Er... this doesn't play anything like KOF13. It's Guilty Gear with Jojo stands.

This video is going to help me decide whether or not I will pre-order this. I'm a total newb to fighting games, so we'll see about this one.

Posted by theuselessgod

Wait, Arc Systems made this? Ok, I'm on board now. Dunno how I missed that.

Posted by AlexanderSheen

Funky Student, DLC character, calling it.

Posted by White

Also, new Chie sounds weird.

Posted by Yadilie

Gee, love seeing copy pasted moves from previous Arc System games.

Posted by UberExplodey

Aram is the best.

Posted by NancyDrewFan123

I had to turn it off at the end because apparently they decided it was a good time for Dark Knight Rises spoilers : |

Posted by Tesla

Oh man, when they got to the main menu and my jam started playing...I think I have to start the P4 Endurance Run over again.

ressentiment is totally a word, ryan. a french word. but a word, nonenthless. Chie's story mode is the most boring one, along with Yukiko, sadly.

How did you get the game so early!?

Being in Europe I have to wait until next month :'(

Posted by Bourbon_Warrior

Paid Colour Variations? No sir!

Posted by Sooty

Ressentiment is indeed a word.

 I didn't! actually, I'm european too. 
 
Thankfully, online videos aren't region locked. And since the JP version has full english text/voice...
 
Also, Aram says almost all songs are remixes/arrangments of P4 songs, but that isn't true. 80% or so of the music is new stuff. Its actually one of the things about this game that bums me out. They have such a solid library of music to draw from!
 
edit: Oh, another thing I'd like to say: Story mode is 25 hourish, tops. Unless you're a really slow reader and go through every single alternate route for every character without skipping anything. Average story mode length for each character is 2 hours.

Where my Funky Student at yo? Yaaay-yay!

Posted by The_Nubster

Ressentiment. . . that was a joke in P4, right? I feel like Vinny and Jeff had that conversation before.

@Duffyside: I'm pretty sure it was just a joke. There's probably a NDA pertaining to mentioning payed previews, so if he mentioned it, I doubt it happened.

Posted by artofwar420

AHA?!?

Posted by Zacagawea

Will probably pick this up after Christmas when I've played through a lot of Persona 4 Golden.

Posted by RVonE

WHO'S NEXT IN LINE FOR A STOMPING?

Posted by Kowalo

I've never really tried to play fighting games, but I might pick this up and try.

Edited by 12_Oz_Mouse

This QL makes me even happier I have this hitting my mailbox next week. I haven't watched much game play for this but a Vinny, Jeff joint meant I had to watch it! Persona in a fighting game seems like a pleasant surprise and I think this alone helps me justify having played through P3:FES and P4.

Posted by dr_mantas

The Persona 4 Endurance Run is why I started and kept paying Giant Bomb money. I of course know it's free, and the stuff I get as a member is cool and all, but my appreciation for it makes it worth every cent for me.

To be fair you should be playing fighting games with a stick anyway.

Posted by Ulong

This game looks pretty cool. I want to play the most annoying keep-away character, and that looks like it will be Aigis. That is good too since my avatar here is Aigis' persona, Palladion. I still remember the persona name. I've wasted my life on persona games.

Posted by buzz_killington

I did not realize how much story was going to be in this game. Effin' cool might have to pick it up now.

Posted by Soulblitz

Oh man the main menu music threw my right back into the ER. So good!

Posted by erinfizz

Yay, a QLEX that I enjoyed. Thanks Atlus guy. :) Seriously considering getting this, but man, I'm the worst at fighting games.

Posted by falling_fast

the Atlus guy seems unusually laid-back for a company man on a quick look EX. usually those guys are, understandably, wound pretty tight.
