That'd be great if you could.

This'll be fun.
Hm, no guarantees that they'll be any good, though, if I get to it.

Though, so far it seems like 2 vs. The World, and most aren't actually betting. Mass bets always turn into chaos if avatars are involved (which I revel in).

I just beat (P4G spoilers)
Shadow Naoto, found it kinda easy after Shadow Mitsuo. Called that he was a she since her first appearance! Btw I don't really like the fact that Teddy's Social Link isn't like the others, since he now hangs out in the real world it could have been just like the rest of the Social Links.

You couldn't find Teddie in the normal world in the original version, that was added in Golden.

For every person not commiting Atlusprime personally delays P5 by a week ;p

Is the bet for 2015 in general or specifically NA?
Release of NA

-----

So,
#InHardinWeTrust wins if Persona 5 get's an NA release in 2015, that means on/before December 31th, if it doesn't #TeamRuins wins

Avatar is to be decided but some of the options are already pretty good, anyone saying a team name and not opting out is in, you'll have to keep your avatar for one month after the release date is confirmed.

Aye or Nay?

Oooh, that explains it. Thanks!
They did a lot of these kind of improvements to Persona 4 Golden. The game was noticeably lacking in the casual dialogue that was present all throughout Persona 2 and Persona 3. It's a lot better for it too.

I really liked the addition of
Kashiwagi's
sidequests, which gave her some positive characterization.

Assuming he's in with the bet, it's going to be funny when Corvo and I are the only people left in this thread with our original avatars.

If my MSPaint image wasn't enough, put me in the the camp with those who #BELIEVE in 2015

We all know how well my last several avatar bets went, right

I'm kind glad that I have still P4G and many other Persona games to play, so I don't have to wait for P5. But hell, I'm joining too. Put me in #TeamRuin, so I will have more time to finish the other Persona games
and buy a PS4

As a suggestion, wouldn't it maybe make more sense for the team wishing for 'Glory' to get the 'Ruin' avatars if they lose, and for the Ruin team to get 'Glory' if the game is released before 2016?

...Saying this as an #InHardinWeTrust member. All I know is I'll be feeling pretty Ruined if we lose...

While #TeamRuin would have to taste our Glory as the enlightened non-believers.

Yeah I was thinking about that as well, to be honest the "ruin" one would fit for everyone.

Finally started playing the story mode of P4AU specifically the P4A part that I purchased. Only completed Yu's story to the cliff hanger glad to see I don't need to do finishing moves or intentionally lose certain fights to get 100% in this game. It's also really nice to be back in the world of Persona 4 and see some of the Persona 3 characters again but the story while okay falls flat due to only having 1 original character to work with in Labrys.

Were you also traumatised by BBCT's story mode?

I personally think P4A's story is total garbage and AU's is even worse (but less annoying to chip at), but I respect that some people
have bad enough taste to
like it.

what are we betting?
People who bet for #InHardinWeTrust must change their avatars to "Ruin" if Persona 5 gets delayed into 2016 in NA/Japan.

Similarily, people who bet for #TeamRuin must change their avatars to "Glory" if Persona 5 gets a release date in 2015.\

I'm in it to win it, more than willing to change my Avatar if #InHardinWeTrust loses.

PS: In regards to the Rise hate, while I admit that wallscroll isn't the best and comes off as too sexual, I think she's one of the best characters in P4, beside Kanji and Naoto. (She's my personal favorite)

I'd put Rise above Yukiko on the list. Her social link is only slightly better and more different than Yukiko.

Yup. It's only $10 too. Unless you wish to give away your physical copy when done with it, there's no reason to play the first Arena.
Dang. Oh well. Paid 6 dollars more and got the soundtrack disc as well.

I liked Yukiko better than Rise and I didn't really care for Yukiko.

Naoto is best girl forever.

If we're talking about the main cast of Persona 4, I'd rate the quality as such:

  1. Kanji
  2. Rise
  3. Naoto
  4. Yukiko
  5. Chie
  6. Marie
  7. Yosuke
  8. Teddie
Thoughts: Kanji was handled very well IMO, and I loved how Rise's character and story tackled things we don't usually see in a "they had/lost it all" kind of scenario.
Too often is Rise's character downgraded to "the clingy girl with a big sex drive and a strip-tease dungeon/boss" - she's so much more than that. In the same vein, too often is Kanji degraded to "that closeted gay character who turns into a walking gay joke." He, too, is so much more than that.

Similarly, if I was making a rating regarding the quality of the cast in Persona 3, then it'd look like so:

  1. Mitsuru
  2. Aigis
  3. Junpei
  4. Shinjiro
  5. Yukari
  6. Akihiko
  7. Fuuka
  8. Koromaru
  9. Ken
Thoughts:
Mitsuru's loss and Aigis' unique "learning to live" make them my favorite characters in the game. Junpei's story of growing up also stands out. In general I like the P3 cast more than the P4 cast.

Also, f*ck Ken.
