Persona 4 was originally released by Atlus in 2008. Players control a teenaged boy who moves to the small Japanese town of Inaba and immediately makes some bizarre discoveries--a series of unexplainable deaths, and a world inside the television where human thoughts take lethal form. Resolving to unravel these mysteries, the boy and his new friends call on the power of Persona to do battle against the monstrous denizens of the TV world and the unknown criminal or criminals attempting to use it as a murder weapon. During downtime between battles, you hone your Persona abilities by petting cats, making models, eating beef bowls, and establishing Social Links--bonds of trust with Inaba's various residents. Gameplay is a mix of dungeon crawls with turn-based combat, and visual novels or dating sims no wait come back. Something like Harvest Moon is probably a better comparison.

In November 2012, Atlus released Persona 4: Golden, a special edition for the PlayStation Vita with bonus content and a host of much-needed technical improvements such as motor scooters, gardening, and ski trips. It is a pretty adorable game, in that cornball family-sitcom sort of way, and I am comfortable recommending it to a JRPG fan or just a person in general.

This LP will be in screenshot format. Any text in update posts that's not in italics is transcribed from the game. Anything in italics is from me, and can be safely ignored.

I'll be playing with Clear Data--basically just the game's name for New Game Plus which allows you to keep your Personas, money, social stats, and a few other things from your previous game. I haven't quite decided how much I want to cheat break make use of Clear Data's expanded options, though. The gameplay mechanics are all explained in detail as you go, so let's get right into it.
