QCF: Persona 5

hen I was ridiculously unemployed, I was afforded the opportunity to see what the all hubbub was about with regards to Atlus' Persona series, starting with the excellent Persona 3. 130 hours later, I asked myself, “How could this series honestly get any better?” Immediately (and almost foolishly) I dove right into the then recently released Persona 4 and found the answer after another 110 hours: Persona 4 was hands down the greatest RPG I had played until then, and ended up being a game that was never matched.

It was a game so good that not only did I spring for the game again – in the form of the P4 Golden: Solid Gold Limited Edition for PlayStation Vita—I also bought a PlayStation Vita for that express reason alone. Yet another 100 hours well-spent.

Naturally, when Persona 5 was announced, I was pretty stoked: If P4 was able to so easily crush P3 with the kind of quality that dripped from its DVD case, what will Persona 5 do? Once again, new hardware was obtained to guarantee the best possible experience – in this case, the PlayStation 4. Another huge box was preordered to continue the Limited Collector's Edition streak that has so far remained unbroken. Was it worth the wait?

In a word: Yes.

PPR Presents Play Play: Jack Bros.

hile Atlus is currently cracking down on anyone who decides to stream/upload late gameplay of Persona 5, we’re pretty confident that there’s one pseudo-Persona game that they could give a shit about anyone posting—WE ACTUALLY DID A PLAY PLAY OF JACK BROS.

Out of the twelve or so games that made it to the Virtual Boy, Jack Bros is considered to be one of the rarest games out there, and it stars the cutest adaptions of Shin Megami Tensei bestiary in obnoxious red on black action. Join Ser and Georgie as they get down to the criminally overlooked tunes of Atlus’ mascot powered rogue-like dungeon crawler for the doomed Nintendo console.
