    i remember buying this new and it came with a CD, and Pillow but that was when $100 were actually very limited bundles and not just cheap ways to scam people of extra money

    True, overhyped as fuck, and I fell into it... I had big expectations god knows why, they were not met.

    I don't remember about that, perhaps?
    Perhaps I dropped it before that also, no idea... I dropped it at the beginning of stage 8 many years ago.

    It is, but I've seen worse.

    There is some strong transphobic shit later in the game. It's gross.

    The 80 is total if you want to do everything in the game through 2 playthroughs without rushing it.

    NO COFFEI!
    I'd say pretty misleading as this would not be the most popular play method

    I think he's referring to Full Body, specifically Vincent's reaction to the new character. As far as I remember the original didn't have any transphobic stuff in it, let alone trans characters.

    You could say this game indeed has sexist elements but on the other hand, honestly, if that offends you then I don't know what you were expecting. I mean, from the very premise:
    Multiple spoilers ahead

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    With that being said, I don't see how someone in the game being shocked/regretting being in a relationship with a trans person makes the game transphobic. If anything, it would make the character transphobic - and even then, the regret comes from one characters unawareness of the fact. I saw the controversy surrounding Atlus using the character's "dead" name in the credits but uh....it's credits. And considering the characters gender itself is a plot point, it would make sense to include it.

    Guess we should be thanking Sega actually. We know Atlus didn't do this cause they wanted to. :P

    Incorrect, though if you're not paying attention it's possible to miss Erika being trans. That said, I thought it was treated fairly respectfully in the original.

    Catherine is also deliberately controversial. People seem to have a difficult time with that nowadays. If anything rattles someone the wrong way now, they'd rather crucifix it rather than just shrug it off. I digress.

    I seriously doubt that Sega forced them into anything, they've been established on Steam for some time though and that's likely why they were chosen as publisher. Maybe they'll publish the Persona games if they ever come to PC, too.

    Sega is the parent company to Atlus. They practically own them. :ninja:

    Oh I wasn't aware. That being the case, it's surprising that Persona hasn't hit PC sooner. :P

    They was obtained by sega in 2013 and as of 2016, that all future titles in north america will be published as sega. It probably took so long since maybe most of their pc porting resources (people) was busy with other games. :P
