Go To


Aaaand we're back!

'Ello there. Some of you might recognise me from my old handle, or the one before that, or the one before that. I've since abandoned that foolish, childish endeavour of crafting magnificent and insightful tales set in worlds created by the creative geniuses of our time, and moved on to yelling at little flashing boxes while hitting them with my fingers until pretty music comes out.

A little background, if you will allow me: I know precisely the amount of 'Fuckall' about Persona 3 other than it's set in a school at midnight (and that only thanks to Little Kuriboh).

Okay, okay, I do know a tiiiny bit more than that: you can be a boy or a girl, and there is plenty of homo-tastic dialogue. This last point was what attracted me to the game in the first place, as one of my friends offloaded the game to me for a small price because 'his time as one of the Hallowed Brethren Of The Shiny Box' was drawing to a close.

Hearing of the game's slashyness and multi-playthrough appeal was enough motivation for me to proceed to merrily mug him and flee back to where I now live in fear from his retribution. While I'm waiting for the police to arrive, however, I may as well attempt to give the game a go with the aid of my once-and-current fellow Tropers.

So, here is your challenge: give me advice on how to play the game for the maximum possible slashability, and maybe even chuckle infrequently at my helpless flailing as well.

The first choice of the game is, of course, fairly simple: play as a Boy or as a Girl? Troperinas and gentlemen, leave your suggestion in the comments below!

EDIT: I should mention that, unless otherwise stated, most of the choices I'll ask for a solid vote on will be open for about 12 hours after the episode where they're in is posted.

DOUBLEDIT: As noted above, I know nothing about the plot of the game. If y'all could keep your spoilers in spoiler tags, please do so. Thanks!

Short 'n Sweet version: This prick is back with a shiny new Multiple-Choice Past and a game clenched betwixt his fanboy-y hands to document playing through, for the amusement of veterans and the education of newcomers.

Play as girl. If you play the PSP version, you should do what other versions can't give you. Plus, unbreakable relationships are good.

Do spoilers even work in comments?

Anyway, the fMC is exclusive to the portable version, so you might as well take advantage of it. Then again, since the male's storyline was made first, you might want to do it first...

I'm casting my vote for female as well. You got the portable version you might as well play as Female since this is the only system where you can play through as a her.
