Now I really want to hear Jeff say "fart."
The sound of them getting a chicken dinner should be the new sound that plays when you sign up for premium.
I really hope I'm not the only one that caught the P4 Endurance Run reference.
Good post, but I don't buy your stress argument for Persona 5. I enjoyed this game. It was stressful at times, but not any more stressful than the other games were.
The red in Persona 5 represents boldness. Instead of staying back and letting people walk over you and your friends, you're standing up for yourself and others. Every character that awakens their Persona goes through roughly the same process: they've been letting people walk all over them, but now they've resolved to stand up for themselves, and their Persona awakens! Throughout the game, you're standing up to these villains, stealing their hearts, fighting for change.
Sure, you have to be bold and fight evil in 3 and 4. But in those games, the idea of standing up for yourself/others isn't as central of a theme as in 5.
Seems appropriate that a game with a shallow name like "Arms" would be missing a deep level of gameplay.
I appreciate the reviews Giant Bomb posts. The quick looks are great for seeing the game in action, but it's also good to get these guys' overall opinion on games, which I feel are communicated best by a written review. Thank you, Dan.
Kiss on the cheek for Dan!
