What does the "EX" in Quick Look EX mean? Is it just "Extra" or something?

Exclusive? That's the only thing I can think of that makes sense considering it's the dev coming in to demo it.

That sounds right, actually.

I don't know. I think the answer that sounds right is that it doesn't really stand for anything and just sounded like a weird/fun way to easily tell the difference.

I normally like Arc System Works games, so I'd probably like this one. However, Aram seemed to be making a ton of apologies and 'well...'s for the game during this Quick Look, so I have to wonder if they don't have much actual faith in this game.

Man I can't wait to get my copy of this. Also, this has really gotten me into the mood to rewatch the Endurance Run.

I wanted to hear some of the game sounds but the talking head never stops speaking at machine gun pace for even two seconds.

The only bits of dialogue we got out of this video is from Yosuke and Chie. Obviously, Chie is new, but if you think Yosuke sounds any different...Dude. I don't what to tell ya, he sounds exactly the same to me.

I've seen the story mode and the only character I'd say sounds off from the original is Yukiko.

I know Yosuke's voice actor is the same. But it seemed like he was the only one.

Based on the trailers and those gameplay videos they released, everyone but Yosuke sounded different. I find it hard to believe they're the same people.

Well, the credits aren't lying!
 
I think you are putting way too much stock in being able to recognize anime grunts and one-line catchphrases from the trailers. Wait until you hear some actual dialogue. I have-- and seriously, the Kanji in this game is the same Troy Baker-ass Kanji from the original.  Naoto still does a terrible boy impression. Rise is Laura "chirpy anime girl" Bailey as fuck. 
 
I suppose Aigis sounds a little different too, but there are story reasons for that.

YES.

Been waiting for this Quick Look.

I think it's just something they crapped out when they did their first one and needed something to call it.

This makes me want to watch the Endurance Run again.

Yep, oh boy does it ever. I can't go down that rabbit hole again for another aproximately 100 hours, can I? Just a little taste and then I'll totally leave it at that ... maybe.

Turns out this universe is still incredibly charming and fascinating. I sort of forgot a little how many cool characters the cast has. Great stuff!

I meant the voice actors for Teddie and Chie may not have been able to come up with an agreement with Atlus to comeback.

The others do sound a little bit different as their voices have aged a little and seeing how the P4 came out 4 years ago it's hard to expect them to get their voices as exactly as they were then.

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

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

While I agree with you, this will probably be the only fighting game I have played since SFAlpha3 and I don't know how many actual people I'll play against. But I suppose for that level of casualness xbox controller is probably enough.

And to be fair, saying you should be playing fighting games with a stick is like saying you should play racing games with a wheel. Sure, if you're way into the games and really want to it makes sense to buy peripherals but not for people who buy maybe one or two a generation. Seriously, the game pad is fine for most people.

snoop lion!

@Flacracker: Yes (or in my case a while ago as I run the dev channel releases instead). It still won't display the total video length though...

Edited by MeatSim

Big Persona 4 fan obviously but not really into fighting games. Though if it's somewhat accessible like Jeff says it is I might pick this up.

Posted by Rmack

I was going to buy this game anyway but the QL has me extra excited. Love me some Arc and Persona. Oh, and this guy is one of the better PR people for fighting games out there. He was really good on the Gamespot E3 stage and he was good here too. PR must be hard for fighting games, so much respect.

Vinny + Jeff + Persona 4 = $Profit (no mystery here!)

Posted by Rayeth

Ah ha! Is this our chance to see P4: Arena?

Posted by metalsnakezero

Good to hear that they are liking it. Persona 4 Arena for TNT next week!

Where's Funky Student...

He's mentioned in one of the achivements. He is not totally absent.

I think I can hear Jeff's fight stick.

Get. Bent.

Oh, man. They're implying some weird shit about Charlie with that "sister complex" stuff.

Posted by TheBrainninja

I'm more attached to Persona 3, so I'm kind of bummed to see so few P3 characters in here. Mitsuru, Aigis and Akihiko are nice, but I'd really like to see Yukari, Shinji and the Protagonist.

Is Ryan working for Atlus now?

This PR guy just isn't clicking with the guys. He's just not all that personable, just all canned dialog.

I'm always ready for more Persona. Also, I believe they knew about @PerfidiousSinn said:

I've heard Yukiko, Yosuke, and Charlie/Yu talk and they are the same. There is a story reason why they sounded off in the trailers.

Remixed velvet room music on the character select screen was great, I have that on my ipod!

Posted by Mijati

This game looks great, but I'm not a huge fighting game fan and that training thing sort of put me off. So much stuff in there that seems overly complicated for what I want in a fighter. Will probably pick it up when it's released in Europe mainly for the story as it looks really good and the fighting looks fun, despite being complicated.
 
Also, Chie's new Voice Actor seems good, can notice the difference if you're looking out for it but I think she's pretty spot on with most of it.

Posted by Twinsun

I always figured EX stood for executive.

Edited by Milkman

I know the dev explains it in the video but....THAT IS NOT CHIE'S VOICE

Beyond that, this looks rad up until the point where it's BlazBlue. I might end up giving it a shot anyway though.

Posted by JackSukeru

Ah man, I am all onboard for this game. I like fighting games fine and with all the story stuff I'll at least have something to do when I can't play with someone else.

It's a joke guys. Like Street Fighter EX.

This game is looking great! I cant wait to pick mine up!

I'm currently watching the P$ Endurance Run as a run up to this game, started a few months ago. Makes this quick look tons more enjoyable.

You can have Fuuka as an announcer! Amazing.

I was like "nice" when I noticed this QL.. when they hit the main menu and the music started playing I was like "OH YEAH!"

Man, that news scroller on the title screen is way too fast. Hurt my eyes to try to read.

What?! Clearly, the only P3 character that should have been included, is Koromaru. And maybe Ken, because his spear style could be pretty cool. It would have been nice to see more P3 character's, but I guess we're lucky that this game exists in the first place, to be honest.

P3 never really stuck with me though. Can't put my finger on why, but I definitely prefer 4. Maybe it was because you social linked more, or at least sooner, with your main team or something. Hard to say.

Koromaru is a good idea, small dog would at least be unique. Also P3 is better because its more epic! :P

mitsuru, aigis and akihiko make sense within the story, while those others don't necessarily; Yukari probably wants to forget what happened, Shinji is... well you know, and the protag is also... that.

Posted by JesterPC238

It's a shame that P4 the Golden isn't launching first, as I'm now super pumped to play this, but I gotta play Persona 4 first. This'll exist in November though I'm sure, looks fantastic though.
