Alex and Paul dig deep into the exposition fest that is this late-game chapter. In the interim, Akechi joins the team at long last, we learn some not-too-surprising twists, and get a glimpse of Sae's dark side.
BEWARE THE BEAUTY THIEF. Alex D'Arata Wolfe joins Paul to discuss our team's summer fun in Hawaii, get in an argument with our cat, and whether capitalism is the true Hamburglar.
AKECHI IS BAE. Or is he? As our Phantom Thieves enter June, we meet a famous boy detective, gain an important team member, and take on a loser yakuza boss ensconsed in a flying saucer bank. We also start what may be our creepiest and most inappropriate confidant link with a strangely familiar private maid.
What if an evil painter rose to fame on the backs of underpaid labor? No, we’re not talking about Thomas Kinkade here; in fact Madarame is the toast of the art world. The Phantom Thieves are on the case, gaining a new member while they’re at it and sending Mona out on his own Mission Impossible mission. But what is the secret of the enigmatic Sayuri painting?
LET US START THE GAME. In the first month of Persona 5, things start out grim: our protagonist is a juvenile delinquent, the gym teacher rules the school with a mix of intimidation, sexual and physical abuse, and a mysterious app is sending us to a nightmarish parallel world. Along the way we discover a dungeon full of butt statues, forge an unexpected alliance, and meet a talking cat.
THIS STORY IS A WORK OF FICTION. We join the Phantom Thieves and set out to steal hearts with our first episode on Persona 5. In this episode we go into our first impressions, mechanics, and talk about how Atlus's latest compares to previous Persona and SMT games.
Does the Schwarzwelt have an end? To discover this, we delve into the infernal dungeon of Horologium, find out which member of the team is taking style cues from David Bowie, and decide whether god, demons or filthy humans deserve to take control of this burned-out husk of a world.
As we delve deeper into the Schwarzwelt, we discover a utopia for teleporter maze fans, meet the hyper-libertarian Captain Jack who is trying to profit off demons, and watch Jimenez and Bugaboo become intimately familiar with one another.
We delve further into the Schwarzwelt in this second part of our series on Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. Along the way, we learn why demons would want a Wal-Mart in hell, do battle with an eldrtich pig tank, and get some Randian knowledge dropped on us by a discarnate parasite.
