Welcome back to another episode of Pass The Salt, the Internet’s saltiest gaming talk show! Daily Dork's Joe is hours into Persona 5 and so far he’s loving it! Could this be another contender for game of the year or another dead note?
Without a doubt
Could be even Game of the Decade Contendor.
Edit: 130 hours in and have not even reached the fifth Palace.
Thats practically impossible to do when the game nudges you forward. Unless the time limit they place on missions is just a bluff and nothing actually happens when its reached.
Well your time within the palaces and mementos is virtually unlimited as you can just keep exiting the levels and return to respawned enemies. So if you wanted to grind out for dozens of hours its definitely possible.
Nah.. I just know how to play the game. Having played more than 400 hours between P3P and P4G I understand the mechanics. Also I do not particularly grind mementos or the castles but rather make use of every available thing to do in the game. The hardest are the twins.
Here is a pic of my save. https://ibb.co/ko5mFv
You could spend 100 hours in the first palace alone, since there is no time limit in the palaces or later in Mementos.
Ah duh, forgot about the time you can spend in mementos and the palaces.
Takemi sells some equipment that regenerates SP. I can stay in mementos/palaces as much time as I want without getting drained of sp or losing the very few itens that give you sp and I'm playing on merciless difficulty. Didn't notice if you have to advance her link to some level before buying them though.
True, but as I said I do not particularly grind. I finish up requests and palaces on the same date I go in and it is just a few hours compared to leveling up confidants etc. I maxed 2 and about to close 5 more. The twins are currently rank 5, but are proving a bit hard, which takes time... fusion etc.
EzPzLmnSqz GOTY Contender
Extremely tough to decide between Nioh, Nier: Automata and Persona 5 for GOTY.... Damn 2017.... You rekting my wallet..... Most competitive year since 2011.
Of course it will be. The winning title belongs to Breath of the Wild however. 😉
The only other game I'd consider my GoTY. BoTW is fantastic!
Btw. if any of the Daily "Dorks" are reading this. The confidant subject is spoilerish!!! Lets people play the game and let them find out themselves. Kinda spoiled it for me! Knew i should not have watched it... always something smh...
So far it is my GoTY
It does have stiff competition, but it may win some GOTY awards.
It is crazy f**** good. Persona 5's storytelling is damn brilliant.
Persona 5 is amazing. There's Tales of Berseria and Horizon Zero Dawn as well. So many great games. A wonderful year for JRPGs and RPGs in general
Am i the only one who hated it? To me it just boring. Ill keep it just in case i find it interesting later on but for now its a game i wish i didn't spend £49 on.
I think youre the first person that i heard that disliked it. So maybe the problem isnt with the game xd
I said i hated it. Not you hate it. I find it tedious and not very interesting to me. I bought it and thats what i think. If you enjoy it then great. It just isnt for me.
Wow sorry if it came out like i was trying to offend you. (Reading the comment again i can see how it would seem like that) i was just trying to say that maybe it just wasnt your type of game
After playing Horizon, I didn't think any game would be able to beat it for GOTY. I was wrong there is a better game and it is Persona 5.
Without question. It will definitely win some GOTY awards, maybe not as much as Horizon or Zelda, but I believe it's at least as good as those games.
Excellent game. Between P5 and Zelda its a close match.
That totally depends on who is voting on it I suppose...
Still struggling to find the GOTY in it, then again, only played for 3 hours so far and way to many X button presses. Will continue and give it a fair chance tho...
Yeah the introduction is quite long. But once it starts letting you explore the palace at your own pace it gets much better
More like GOTY winner.
The game was sold as an rpg. Is it shit. Its a awalking around sim. Lifeless and devoid of any excitement. If i had my time again i wouldnt of even thought about buying it. Walking sim at the most. And a boring one at that.
I just don't think you are getting it. But you made up your mind it seems as you call it "shit". So.... whatever
I dont get it. Your right. Look i don't mean to piss you all off but i just dont see where the fun is in this game. But this is just my opinion. We all have to differ. And for me this the game was a waste of money. Not the game i thought i was buying. Not an rpg. Edit. I didnt call it shit i said is it shit an rpg. And it isn't.
How far did you get in the game?
Read what i said. i didnt call it shit anywhere.
