It's at least slightly more interesting than yelling out "Persona!" in a terrible voice.


XD

I liked how they summoned their Persona in 1&2, it was amusing. PERSONA!!!

Penny arcade doing a parody of persona may help sales and the reviews I have read are overwelmingly positive. I really hope the more conservative aspects in the American media dont get onto this otherwise every teen suicide for the next 5 years will be blamed on persona.

Not to mention every incident of japanese kids fighting shadows alongside Androids and dogs in schools with in depth charaters.

The characters really  seem to be well thought out this time around. Granted science fiction and cyber punk inspirations make things more quirky then again how realistic is HS students fighting for the fate of man-kind anyway? As usual at least Atlus is trying to stay true to originality. I find the concept of P3 far more appealing then most of the new breed of rpgs hitting shelves.

To me...eh, it wasn't that funny.

Besides that, like someone mentioned...the method does have a meaning, and doing a parody of it feels sort of...weird.

I try not to take anything too seriously especially parodies. If anything Penny arcade's cheap shot about Atlus's eccentricities likely will help the game sell better. In my opinion comedic artists will only target something that is "good" or at the very least "anticipated". It's like that in show biz too. The actors and actresses they are doing well are also the ones that get "spoofed" so to speak.

Bulimic witches would be fun.

The Shin Megami Tensei series as a whole aren't that big over here. I mean. c'mon, Lucifer's Call (the PAL Nocturne). I mean, the "True" Ending is obvious anyway and no one batted an eyelid.

The Evoker thing is a very awesome stylistic choice and it will indeed be more interesting than just yelling "Persona" again and again. Chris in Revelations sounds like a 60-a-day smoker when he yells it (made me giggle).

I agree - if all Penny Arcade can come up with is that parody then Persona 3 will hopefully be immense. I've heard it's playtime is 80 to 105 hours as well.

Can't wait!

This is the first SMT to be featured in a mainstream web comic publication isnt it?

I never understood why Dante was put in Nocturne other then perhaps the main SMT artist did his devil design. Yuri from Shadow-hearts and shadow-hearts covenant likely would have been a better choice. The Shadowhearts mythos parallels that of the SMT universe quite closely IMO.

I think some people making Nocture thought it would be cool.

Yeah and at least it was the older more mature Dante in Nocturne as he was in DMC 1 instead of the arrogant dog and pony  show complete with corny catch phrases "young Dante" from DMC 3. Yet I admire DMC in that they show Dante grow up and how he wasn't always the same. I still prefer his personality from DMC 1 though.

Well I think some other game designer may have cornered the bulemic witches market.

Not sure about the point of this game is and it kinda scares me but here you go.

 Under 15's may not want to read/see this as your minds are sensitive.

I heard about the game. Sorta a cute very mild soft core touch pad/dating sim excursion. I didn't think ill of it but then again it didn't fascinate me either.

Um no. Yuri does not fit SMT at all.

Shadow Hearts parralel to SMT? lol SH is light heated. SMT is anything but, aside from the Persona series, and even that is darker than all of the SH games.
