    Doesn't look nearly as gothic as Nocturne or DDS, but it does look awesome in its own right. I'll definitely be looking into this one.
    Maybe I'll log out and check my e-mail or something...

    I've been hyped about P3 since the release of the awesome first trailer. Finally the long wait is close to pay off.

    I hope to hear from Atlus if they have plans to release the Fes expansion in the future. Only because it's not coming out bundled with the game it doesn't mean they don't have plans to do it later, right?

    Oh, Igor and the Velvet Room, I missed you both. biggrin.gif

    Sorry, no FES as of right now. Maybe they'll wait to see how P3 does in sales to decide if they'll release it.

    This is the return emailI got when I asked them about FES.

    "Hi Shane,

    We are currently not planning on releasing FES. However, thanks for
    showing interest in the title. Be sure to pick up Persona 3 later this year."

    Yup, that's what I meant when I said that "only because it's not coming out bundled with the game it doesn't mean they don't have plans to do it later", but thanks for sharing the reply they gave you. smile.gif

    I also sent them an e-mail when Fes was announced some time ago, and I got a similar response.

    Anyway, I'm just glad they didn't turn off the possibility to release it in the future.

    I think my princess is right there o.O

    So does this mean they didn't cut it? Because that would make me a happy panda!

    I'm pretty certain it hasn't been cut too.

    Reminds me more of a thin Shoko Asahara, the leader of the Aum Shinrikyo. ?Of course, they don't actually look alike; it's just that the association, in my mind, makes the game feel even darker than before... ?

    Looks exactly like my ex... except that he had black hair, same length, wavy, same jaw, same crusty slight beardage... same druggy eyes. Yup, that's my ex.

    Sad part is that's likely true. The only things he seems to know exist are Counter-Strike and GTA.

    Does he even try to play even five minutes of any of the games he complains about?

    But I agree, P3 has a high chance to never get his attention, but if it ever gets, in the end he'll end up helping advertising the game. tounge2.gif

    I doubt it'd be censored, and it it will, I'll import a japanese copy as I had originally planned to.

    Our beloved Jack probably mostly bashes CS or GTA because that's what really young kids usually play. You don't find 10-year olds playing a deep SMT title, because it generally doesn't appeal to them.

    That sort of thinking has me worried. Considering just how expensive games are to develop, the industry might move to try to make games as controversial as possible, emphasizing things that would get "moral majority" activists like Thompson riled up in order to get the mainstream talking heads going.

    Jack Thompson probably has never even heard of Persona. It's too obscure. He, like Lieberman before him, only knows the popular mainstream games, so games like this get to, fortunately, fly under the radar.

    I was just kidding there, it's just that I don't think anyone takes the guy seriously anymore. Of course, the best scenario is when people get that the game is mature and kids should not play it, instead of complaining about those same mature themes.

    That would require people taking responsibility for their actions. And we all know that won't happen.
