Okay, no to be terrible, but for a second in the "I'll shade myself" image I thought the skirt-girl was Velma and that led to a "Scooby-Gang VS. DARK Scooby-Gang" image in my mind. Which was hilarious.

The dark Scooby-Gang terrifies me... they've got a fat blue thing that's more annoying than Scrappy-Doo.

How can forces this evil exist.

How about that version of the song at the end where they literally say "burn my bread"? You can't convince me that's not what the dude is saying, I just won't believe it.

I hope the new one has good music!

I really should complete one of these games. My friend let me borrow Persona 3, and I kept yelling at it.

"I don't wanna go to bed! I'm not tired. I wanna explooooore..." (Cue my friend telling me, 'But...but plot!')

"Aw yeah, we get to shoot things! ...why are you aiming at yourself? DON'T AIM AT YOURSELF! Oh, the gun got knocked away. Phew. All right, my character gets to shoot monsters! What? DON'T AIM AT YOURSELF! What the heck?! Hm... I guess shooting yourself WAS the right thing to do. BUT SUICIDE IS AGAINST THE LAW!"

That was about as far as I got.

I wonder if that game is just about shooting yourself on the rooftop of a school and then hallucinating the rest of the wacky stuff...

Well, if dead people could hallucinate.

Oh, Lord.  I full sized the image to get a closer look at everything and did a double-take on Shadow Kanji'.  Those eyes and that face...hilarious but mildy shocking to say the least.  I like how the shadow versions are cloaked in, well, shadows and give off a bit of a malevolent jack-o-lantern look.  On a closing note I really enjoyed the Investigation Team's expressions.  Everyone seems so (appropriately) offended by their shadows existence.

Maybe everyone's offended by Kanji's shadow instead!

Beautiful piece of work, right there. And that it's from a game that will be fondly remembered by everyone who played it doesn't hurt.

Kanji, a chair is not a very functional nor effective weapon.

It will be fondly remembered, it uses a kind of ageless art style. It's kind of weird how Shin Megami Tensei went really 'modern' with these games but then backpedaled like crazy. That or they're just staying true to the fans of their respective spin-offs, which is cool.

I'm sure pro-wrestling weapons will diffuse all those 'gay' rumors about him. :P

Yeah they went way back to their original art style with SMTIV it would seem.

And yeah, those 'gay' rumours... I think it can pretty safely said that Kanji is going through a very confused phase :P

:iconobstinatemelon:
ObstinateMelon Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013
Not even art sytle, SMT3 was also a huge leap forward but 4 and Strange Journey went back to their SNES roots. They're all pictures and static images, 4's soundtrack even sounds the same. I actually feel like I am playing the SNES game again... and I'm not even saying that like it's a bad thing, I love it. Tokyo is bleak as fuck in the Megaten universe, it's like Akira if Akira were a game. That's what's so funny about 4 as I play it, I keep thinking it's the 80's with all the vest-wearing, foul mouthed punks and old-style Yakuza people.

I thought he was going to embrace the gayness after dealing with his Persona, as that's kind of the point of the game, but when all was said and done he still denied it... which definitely gave me my own confused phase.

Oh, well, I never played the SNES versions (back in the day when the SNES was big, the European market blocked most japanese games), and I have yet to play 4 (I suppose I'll have to buy a 3DS for it), but yeah, I get what you mean. It's always good when a game series goes back to its original style, that's for sure.

Well, for some reason Kanji is relieved when he finds out Naoto was a girl all along (BECAUSE IT WASN'T TOTALLY OBVIOUS!), but from a psychological standpoint, this is moot: if he has the hots for someone he thinks is a man, he is still homosexual even if it later turns out his crush was NOT a man. Then again, the whole homosexuality angle could just be Kanji's fear of being gay because he's afraid to talk to girls after they rebuked him for having feminine hobbies. I suppose the developers deliberately left it open. Apparently in P4 Golden, he metamorphoses into a total nerd, which I personally think is taking it a bit too far. But then again, in P4 Golden, Naoto suddenly grows an enormous rack and doesn't mind showing it off, so yeah... :/

Exactly what kind of game is Persona 4? I've heard about it a ton, but up until now I was under the impression that it was a dating sim. :I

Short version: It's not NOT a dating sim.

Long version: It's an RPG where your main character (and tangentially, his party members) gets powered up by playing a dating sim during the time you aren't fighting monsters.
