I've said it before, but Altus is the worst video game company that makes good games. Like they're absolute trash, but their games are good.

Fuck lmao

Let's make a direly important story about how Ann's agency over her body should never be questioned and the villain is an irredeemable perverse scumbag for doing so, and then immediately start treating her the same way for laughs.
Yusuke's introduction is downright criminal, and completely contradicts his character as he's portrayed for the rest of the game

it's stupid too because you can make an even better joke by changing it in small ways
like having Yusuke going "haha they'll never agree to tha-" and Ann says yes completely casually
and then intimidates by Yusuke by actually starting and he just goes "PLEASE STOP I'M A PURE BOY I'LL TELL YOU WHATEVER YOU WANT"

bam. ann has the power, ann has the agency, yusuke getting caught off guard is the punchline

This is the game that had to clarify that Ann never had a boyfriend, because having the slightest bit of agency over her body means she can't be a real waifu.

Soejima said that shit too? Goddammit.....
THAT CERTAINLY MAKES ME FEEL BETTER. COME TO THIN OF IT, IT SEEMS LIKE YOU CAN ONLY FORGE THAT KIND OF FRIENDSHIP WITH SOCIAL LINKS OF THE SAME GENDER. OPPOSITE GENDER SOCIAL LINKS WILL REVERSE QUICKLY. DOES THIS MEAN TRUE FRIENDSHIPS BETWEEN PEOPLE OF OPPOSITE GENDER DO NOT EXIST?


HASHINO: I’ve never successfully forged a true friendship with a girl in real life.


SOEJIMA: Neither have I.


HASHINO: I guess that means we couldn’t implement it into the game because we don’t know what it’s like. (laughs)


SOEJIMA: Now that I’m on my thirties, I’m more open to the notion that it is possible, though. Back in high school, I admit I couldn’t look at girls that way.
ignore the all caps the original interview is just like that
Full Interview here, for those curious

edit: for what it's worth, i don't think hashino and soejima are saying men and women can't have true friendships here
but it's clear that they designed the game with that mindset, and the fact that neither of them has had a real female friend definitely... leads to some things making a lot more sense

I refuse to play Persona 3 because of how social links with girls work in that game. It's so freaking dumb.

My only hot take is I don’t like Persona 2’s gameplay. Stories great but the gameplay puts me to sleep.

Persona 5 is my second favorite RPG ever.

I always forget that Ice Climbers got cut in Smash 4. Seeing them in Ultimate seems so natural to me that it's almost weird to think that they were gone for a while.
