Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


P4G: Review Log 03: We're Just Two Crazy Lovebirds!

Posted on Friday, November 9 @ 19:00:00 PST by

Have I told you how much I love Persona 3 Portable? The visual novel/dungeon crawler sunk its hooks into me like no other RPG before it. P3P relies on the calendar to draw players in. Memento mori, as they say.

But I'm finding myself attached to a daily routine of Persona 4: Golden for an entirely different reason. The hard truth is that Junpei was annoying, Akihiko was standoffish and Yukari was a push over. Characters like Chie, Yukiko, and Yosuke immediately fill the same roles, but in much more entertaining and charismatic ways. What's more, their motivations are a lot clearer. When I choose to partner up with Yukiko, Yosuke grumbles, but he'll get over it once I've established my social link.

As the world opens up and more faces come to light, I look forward to seeing who they are and what drives them. Arbitrary bosses are gone, replaced with character development and creativity. Instead of counting down the days to a new section of Tartarus, I'm engaging with the citizens of Inaba and learning more about them outside of the murder mystery gripping the small town.

The take away here? Persona 4's characters and plot still hold up, but new scenes and added events in P4: Golden make a huge difference in turning my focus from the grinding and combat to the world I'm living in. I know it means I'm running out of time, but I like the rain.
