Persona 3 Portable

31 August 2010

It's been a while since I've actually played anything seriously on my PSP (Dissidia has been the default "five minutes to kill while waiting for the bus/train/rehearsal" game), but I started playing Persona 3 Portable a couple of days ago, and I must admit - I am totally hooked.

Acting as a weird hybrid between a simulation game (a genre which seems to never have gotten very far outside of Japan) and RPG, it's got its own very unique setting and style to it which is a refreshing change from elves, goblins and orcs and humans with magical staves and brutish knights in armour. There's the "collect them all" a la Pokémon thing going on for all the Personas your main character could potentially collect, and no matter how many times I see the animation it is still a little unnerving to watch the little 3d models shoot themselves in the head to release their special abilities...

I'm almost certain that I'll finish this game (though I did feel that way about Dragon Age and I kind of just stopped...) or at the very least it'll get me through to the big group of awesome games on the horizon (Civilization V, Rock Band 3, Gran Turismo 5, Final Fantasy XIV).
