    What other options do they have? Everybody forgot about the Korean War, Vietnam is overplayed, and the best you can get in the 80s is a bunch of extremely low-stakes regime changes unless you really want to kick in a couple hornets' nests and visit Israel and Rhodesia.

    Reminds me of some classic historical accounts of people using metal armor at the turn of the century. And of course, who could forget that scene in A Fistful of Dollars.

    The Light World is full of just as many mysteries as the Dark World. While the Dark World's strangeness is largely architectural, the Light World's got more zany characters than you can shake a stick at.

    There are fortune tellers, old wise men living in caves, suspiciously cheerful lumberjacks, thieves sitting next to signs warning you about them, and more. The game teaches you early that every nook and cranny has a story or some loot nearby.

    Oh and of course one of the most infamously annoying bosses in the entire series lives in the Tower of Hera.

    @riderkicker I heard a rumor that a later boss's Big Bang attack deals less damage if you're hungry, which... sounds hilarious in context now.

    The big mystery is the cues they gave the voice actors. The pronunciation of some of the names is pretty strange.

    Two game generations later and I'm still stuck halfway through Awakening on Classic. This happened to me in SMT4 as well: when the game gets so difficult that I am forced to repeatedly reset the game until the RNG gives me the result I want. Maybe the Turnwheel would save time otherwise spent watching the loading screen.Edited 3 days ago by Unknown

    I'm starting to get interested in the teletype display mechanism. Someone told me about a 1971 Star Trek game that used the same method initially as well.

    This fight absolutely destroyed me the first time I came into it. I never got the prompt to make the boss vulnerable, so instead I had to beat him the old-fashioned way.

    Lessons learned:
    - Morgana is on healing duty for this fight. Media all day long.
    - Remember to guard the turn when you see the message about the nose, as it follows up with an all-target wind attack that Ryuji is vulnerable to otherwise. If you're feeling confident in your healing skills you can have only him guard.
    - It's critical that you have the mouth -attack debuffed at all times. It will continually have +attack cast on it by one of the eyes, and that bite attack will rock your world. It helps if you have a persona out that is strong/immune to physical attacks.
    - After the first round of beating up the Shadow, when the paintings appear again you need to take down all the paintings in the same round or they will resurrect the ones you downed.
    - Make sure you have items that can resurrect your party members. When he paints one of your party black, that person needs to continually guard and even then may still be toast if focused on.

    Know how they'd make this the must-have retro console? Netplay.

    It's interesting to contrast 5's jazzy soundtrack with 4's pop-and-rock routine. I guess they were going for something more suave and sophisticated to go with their Lupin-the-gentleman-thief homage.

    Not sure if I prefer it to 4's, but then again I do have a soft spot for spontaneous heavy guitar riffs.
