I know, right!
They just don't pickle schoolchildren like they used to.
So I'm working on the next update. Here's a teaser, if yall are interested.
In other news, still no word on the release date for Book of Shadows. Any day now, Xseed!
Wyrdwad (Handle of the guy primarily responsible for the localization of both CP games) has said that BoS will be available no later then late January/early february, all that's left that's keeping it from being released is Sony's certification process.
He's kind of adorable, it's too bad he's one sick fuck.
In other news, did Kizami ever kill Yuka and her stupid bladder, or has the game just rabidly neglected them for a long ass time?
Nope, pretty sure Kizami and Yuka are both still up and running.
It gets around to that later. It waits until the last chapter to do anything with them, as the rest of Chapter 4 focuses on the characters that it's shown already.
Speaking of them though, one of the Extra Chapters is a little short thing about what happened when Yuka was running away from Morishige, and he ran into Kiiiiizaaaamiiii.
The extra chapters are pretty great. One of them actually explains that voice in the boys' bathroom that yells at you to close the door when you open one of the stalls. Fun Fact, that voice is also voiced by Kizami's seiyuu.
Yeah, I saw that, and I saw that he also mentioned that the website for BoS is being worked on, but that's still not up and running either :<
Balls. That's a long time to leave us hanging.
More reasons I'm sad you won't do any of the good stuff like Seiko's cell phone. I will never be able to play this game myself, and Youtube let's plays are multiple day investments to load on my computer... Such is life, I suppose.
Sooooo.... I kind of panicked when I saw the update for this. I was thinking "oh god. more blood and death." I was happily wrong this time.
I'm assuming this is directed at the teaser. That would be the correct response to seeing him, if the other two were smart.
..I think it's bad I kind of like him. I need therapy, as does anyone else following this thread, really. WHat the hel is wrong with us, watching little kids be tortured?
I've played this game all the way through, and I still like Kizami. I'd be a perfect accomplice too!
It's cathartic, actually, as long as we know that "killing people=bad", I think we're good to go (but I'm not sure what's the moral stance regarding pigeon romancing).
From a complete overview of the situation, it's all pretty fucked up. But I actually agree with you deeply. Having that division in our minds of 'this is fake, it's just a concept, not something I approve of,' makes it not so horrifying.
Pigeons is a whole other bag of worms. ..No pun intended?
Mixed. Feelings. I often like sociopathic villains a lot even if I hate them. I guess because they're fascinating. One of the main villains from Persona 4 is one of my favorite characters like, ever.
Well, there's also the fact that we're explicitly NOT 'watching little kids get tortured'. These are fictitious depictions, and not even particularly realistic ones. That's part of the distancing that lets us identify with them enough to feel the fear and catharsis, but not so much experiencing something bad happening to them would be emotionally devastating. In other words, it's exactly the same way we can watch horror movies without sobbing when our friends for two hours get killed. They're not real, no one is really getting hurt, and our brains are always aware of that fact, no matter how much we buy in to the narrative and universe.
You might want to mention that link has major Persona 4 plot spoilers. I certainly wish you had.
Dang, thought it was implied by the spoiler tag. I'll try to edit now. I'm sorry, quatoria.
Heh, in this forum? We use spoiler tags for everything from snarky messages to big pictures. The one thing we almost never use them for is actual spoilers, at least not without editing the spoiler tag text to mention it really IS a spoiler.
Again, I'm so sorry. I thoguht spoiler tags and a link instead of justposting the pic were enough to deter anyone who hadn't played. I wasn't positive how to label tags either. I didn't mean to screw you on that, so sorry.
If it's any consolation, I accidently got spoiled on the internet of that before buying the game and it was no less enjoyable.
It's okay, Teddybear. Really, don't beat yourself up. By the time I pick P4 back up, I'll probably have forgotten who that link was about and what he did. And if not, wrestlers and idols and the horror that is Teddy will distract me.
Teddie. I assume you're taling about Teddie and not condeming me. ;_;
P4 is awesome, I hope you finish it sometime. There's LOTS of awesome distractions. Damn, that's probably my favorite game.
Thanks for reminding me that I have P4G stting unopened on my coffee table. :/
W-Why?! Because of this LP?
I'm imagining Teddy and quatoria reassuring each other inside Heavenly Host School. I can almost see the children chasing you!
Can he be the Yoshiki to my Ayumi? Because me being posessed and hsterically ranting in ghostvoice about P4 just to upset him makes a certain kind of sense. Then he's all a chill bro and doesn't hate me for ruining all his logic and security.
...I think I just made myself hate Ayumi more. Can we put her back in the drain? No? It'll break Yoshiki? Damn.
Edit: Well played, Ozzo. That just sorta wrapped around to being back on topic.
No, because I ordered it off amazon (Preordered actually, got a sweet Vita skin as a bonus) and haven't got around to playing it yet because reasons.
I just read everything...Because Yoshikiiii!
And NO CLEAVAGE-KUN! Don't kill Kurosakiiiiii! kill Yuka instead pleeeeeeease.
(And make Kurosaki an accomplice, even though he doesn't wanna be, because he's such a nice guy *evil grin*)
Yoshiki is totally gonna die a horrible death, isn't he? After he pacifies all those asdfkjlakjb little blue ghosts...
And then he'll be secretly alive again so we can watch him die more painfully...
And then only the character we hate the most will survive...
DAMN YOU YUKA! Damn youuuuuuuuu.
Haha I love the characters the have for P4. They make for a very entertaining combination. XD
Notification strikes again by not informing anything. Can't wait for the update! ouo
ugu whhhydid i rreadthisnow
i keep thinkign this game cant posibbly break me back down tobieng terrified and i keep bieng surprised TT^TT
So yeah, sorry I've been taking my sweet time getting this update up. I got errands to run today but here's a smidgin of an update. More to come when I get back home.
You just said that
Welp, we're offcially boned.
OH SHIT CALL THE COPS
You mean that was an option all this time?!
No wait, cops here probably just cut the tongues out of any whippersnapper they see. You'll just have to deal with Cuteface McCorpsehumper yourself.
We're gonna have him go through the remains, aren't we? And he's gonna be smiling while doing it, isn't he?
I read this in the middle of one of my classes and it was all I could do to keep my reaction internal. Wish I could have done this out loud:
OH GOD. WHY?! EEEWWW!!!!!
An update? THIS CALLS FOR SHITTY WINDOWS PAINT FANART. BECAUSE THAT IS NOW MY THING, APPARENTLY
Book of Shadows, 15th this month, looking forward to this one finishing (I've got mixed feelings here), and the next one starting.
Sorry, crashed in my bed as soon as I got home, but I'm up now and here's the rest of that update.
OH MORISHIGE I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER BEEN HAPPY TO SEE YOU BUT I CAN START NOW ;_;
We all need hugs. I'm so sorry Yuka ran away from you i mean you're creepy but you're not a murderer
Or so we hope.
Let's blame Kizami
Shit I have so little time then
