Re: Persona 5 (PS4) - 4/4/17

It's something you do towards the end of the palaces. Basically the cadence is, grind through palace, find the treasure, leave the palace and send Calling Card, re-enter palace to fight boss.

I'm only on the 2nd palace but this seems to be the scenario for all of them. I pointed it out since it's one of the hard stops. When you find the treaure, you leave the palace and go to the next day to send the Calling Card.

I'm right about where you are in game (just entered first dungeon) and I've got all the same questions you do. Appreciate someone asking!

Re: Persona 5 (PS4) - 4/4/17

but once you send the calling card you can't go back in to grind or get all the treasure boxes. So make sure you're done with all that before you send the calling card. depending on if you're over or under leveled for each palace, you'll probably want 2-3 days in each before you send the CC to get everything and grind enough.

although, there is another option for grinding depending where you are in the game, so you may be able to back that down to 1-2 days depending on your level.

Re: Persona 5 (PS4) - 4/4/17

Man, the game is great. But I just passed the 25 hr mark and I'm not even done with the 2nd dungeon. I'm assuming all Persona games are very long?

Re: Persona 5 (PS4) - 4/4/17

I may be walking away from this one. 30 hours in and at the end of the second palace. Things just still aren't clicking. I'm spending waaaay too much time x'ing through dialogue options, and maybe I'm missing something, but the combat is growing super tiresome.

Honestly, if Best Buy took this in as a trade it'd be gone today, but it looks like it'll be sticking around for at least a little while longer.

You're not the only one. As a huge fan of Persona 1, Persona 2 Innocent Sin and Persona 2 Eternal Punishment, as well as pretty much the rest of the mega-ten games, I just don't see the draw in this series starting with Persona 3. There's way too much of the dating-sim aspect to this one and the forcing you along with what it wants you to do is really annoying. Add to that the ease of the battle system thanks to the all out attack and dumbed down communication aspect, not to mention viewable enemies on the map, as well as hiding, which makes it near impossible not to always ambush your opponents, and there's not much aside from a glimmer of what the series used to be keeping me playing.

I'm glad the series is thriving for those who enjoy it, but it really makes me long for the older titles.

Curious, for those who are enjoying this, were you fans of the series from the get go, or at what point did it come on your radar?

Re: Persona 5 (PS4) - 4/4/17

Always been a fan. I thought the added changes starting with Persona 3 were needed to breathe new life into a dusty genre. Persona 1 and 2 were great, but a product of their time and I'm not sure I could return to them now. P3 is probably my favorite of the franchise so I may be quite biased.

If you don't like the social aspects, this may not be for you. I think having to do those and build relationships with characters is one of the most fun things in the game. If you find it too easy, just bump up the difficulty. It can be done on the fly and IIRC one of the free DLCs is a super-hard mode.

Thanks for the input, I think I may have to come to terms with being an old man stuck in the past.

Re: Persona 5 (PS4) - 4/4/17

I actually think I'd like the social activities. It's the general banter dialogue that's driving me nuts. I know I'm still relatively early in the game, but I wish it'd open up a bit more already. I feel like I only had maybe 3 total days in game between palaces that I could use for whatever I wanted. The rest were all "let's go here" "take these tests" and that cat making me go to bed all the time. I want to socialize with my group more.

Re: Persona 5 (PS4) - 4/4/17

That's been my hesitation with picking this one up, back log aside. It's fun enough but the High School Sim part just never clicked with me in the last couple.
