Oh, hello there! You seem to have stumbled into this blog, either by accident or chance. The name's Phoenixor, or Phoenix/Pho/Phoebe/whatever else you want to call me, and this blog will contain my fumbling, stumbling and misadventures through a little game called Persona 3. Now, before we begin, allow me to shamelessly rip off from Wik- I mean, explain the basic plot of this game!
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, originally released in Japan as simply Persona 3 (ペルソナ3 Perusona Surī?), is the third video game in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series of role-playing video games developed by Atlus, which is part of the larger Megami Tensei series of video games.In Persona 3, the player takes the role of a male high-school student who joins the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad (SEES), a group of students investigating the Dark Hour, a time period between one day and the next that few people are aware of. During the Dark Hour, the player enters Tartarus, a large tower containing Shadows, creatures that feed on the minds of humans. To fight the Shadows, each member of SEES is able to summon a Persona, a manifestation of a person's inner self. The game's most iconic feature is the method by which the members of SEES release their Personas: by firing a gun-like object called an Evoker at their head. In addition to the standard elements of role-playing games, Persona 3 includes elements of simulation games, as the game's protagonist progresses day by day through a school year, making friends and forming relationships that improve the strength of his Personas in battle. The North American release of Persona 3 includes the aforementioned art book, along with a selection of music from the official soundtrack.
Wow, thanks Wikipedia!
Anyway, as this is my first Persona game, I have NO IDEA what I'm doing, so I'll be relying on you, yes you, to help me get through this game. Who should I romance? What social links should I pursue? Why do I keep dying to these mooks? You decide everything, including the name of this story's hero. Just not something silly like "Susan Bearstrangler" or something.
Actually, scratch that, Susan Bearstrangler is a totally legitimate name. But yeah, the fate of my gameplaying experience is in your hands, so don't screw up!
Now, as I don't actually have the game yet (it's on its way, don't worry!) you shall have plenty of time to heckle/encourage/suggest stuff to me in the comments. So, without further ado, let's get this trainwreck rolling! May God help us all.
PS: Yes, I will be doing the post-finale stuff, so don't worry there.
