Greetings, whassup and hello. Welcome to No Stopping Us, a fanmix for the underrated 1996 Playstation RPG game Revelations: Persona. Yes, it is the first game in the series that Persona 3 and Persona 4 came from. The bandwagon has been jumped on by many (and for good reason -- it's a great game XD), but some haven't searched out Persona 3/4's roots. ;D Those that have, I salute you. And those that originally played Revelations and Persona 2 (either part) before 3/4 was even announced -- I <3 you.

(And it's getting a PSP remake! I AM HIGHLY EXCITED BY THIS TURN OF EVENTS. SEPTEMBER 22! :D)

So whether you're a fan of Revelations: Persona, a fan of the third or fourth game looking to broaden your Persona horizons or even if you have no idea what a Persona is, I hope you enjoy this fanmix!

Here is your extremely basic backstory: The story is set in contemporary times, with high school teenagers serving as the heroes of the game. Armed with weapons and imbued with magical beings known as Personae, they band together to repel demons that are invading their city.

Here's what they left out: DRAMA. Unrequited love (Mark! --> Mary! --> Main! <--Ellen!)! Annoying principals (DARTH HARDING)! Alternate dimensions! Creepy little girls! Robot mice! Toilet kids! Kickass music! Contacting demons! Mark dancing seductively! A class full of losers who are all totally different but BFF! Penis Monsters (sorry, not in the American version)! First-person to third-person! Kids with guns?! A silent protagonist! Yellow butterflies! Family angst! Evil corporations! A kickass butler named Alfred!

In closing: "ZOMBIES?! HOW DARE YOU!"

Let's get it on.

I dreamt I was a butterfly... )

YESSSSSS, happy I finally got it uploaded! (MARK AND CHRIS <3)

OH AND.

WOOOOOO! -- new Persona PSP preview movie.

I still can't describe how giddy seeing them actually move makes me. D:

Also, when did Philemon start looking so badass? I love his jacket.


Mmm, weekend. Mmmmmmm, video games.

PSP Persona remake! Set for OFFICIAL NORTH AMERICAN RELEASE BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR. :D

Besides Final Fantasy VII, this was the first RPG that got me to want to play more games. I remember being at Blockbuster looking for games to play on my PSX and I saw this game called Kartia. I turned it over to look at the back of the box and saw a tiny ad for some weird-ass looking game called Revelations: Persona. It had some of the character art on it -- I specifically remember seeing Ellen, Alana and Chris. I fell in love with Chris (I COULDN'T HELP IT HE LOOKED SO SNARKY AND TORTURED AND I WAS RIGHT) right there and knew I had to play this game.

I couldn't find it anywhere.

I finally found it at a flea market in Florida while we were on vacation. I got it for around $20. It was an old copy as it is, but I played that game so damn much the disc cracked and would skip and freeze when I got into a battle. I had to get another copy off of ebay. I still have the cracked disc hanging on my wall in my room.

I will definitely admit I'm a little worried about the rumored changes. Like the WHOLE BRAND NEW SOUNDTRACK and so on. But I'm reserving my judgement, I'm waiting before I flip my lid. Right now I'm just excited about the fact that they're actually bringing it over here. The fact that I'll get to see my favorites in the pretty new cutscenes and hear my pharmacy music!

A poster on the Atlus forums summed up exactly how I feel:

"No offense to those whining about the way the game looks, but for us older fans of the series, this was our little treat, since we've been dry-heaving on Persona 3 and 4, which while they're good games, just lack the dark, brooding essence of the regular-line of MegaTen games. Persona, while one foot in the high-school train, still was a very dark game, with the ambiance in sound we'd grown to love, so for us, it worked great. Not only but the way you explored the dungeons in first person was something that to us (older fans) was a very appreciated sentimentality, since that's how the start of this series was.

Persona 3 and 4 are great, but there's a much, much darker universe of MegaTen out there than that. Some of you guys should give it a chance, rather than complaining that there's a lack of hippity-hop, and light-heartedness in your Persona soup. Take it for the ingredients it has to present on its own."

It's coming out in Japan in April, so we'll get to see some of the changes then (music, etc.) -- but I'll have to wait a little longer to see what else they do.

STILL. STILL EXCITED. PERSONA~! :D

I get to revisit these babies! YAY EYE CANDY~ (soooo cute!)

Also, will they change Mark's skin color again? Keep their japanese names? SO MANY QUESTIONS.

AND OMG THIS MEANS I GET TO SEE ALFRED AGAIN. AND I REALLY HOPE THEY KEEP IN NATE'S, "Zombies! How dare you!"

NEW SONG :O (I love how it goes from normal boppy PERSONA YAY to ROCK YOUR FACE -- it's actually sort of perfect and I actually kind of love it. It fits and that's the most important part. XD)

And and and dskdsadsfamsdjfksdljfasd TEASER MOVIE:

http://persona.atlusnet.jp/introduction/index.html -- Mary (Mark loves you still)! LOOK THEY'RE MOVING~ AND CHRIS ALWAYS IN THE PARTY CAUSE HE'S AWESOME. AND THE SNOW QUEEN QUEST. AND MY FIRST PERSON DUNGEONS LOL~ <3

I don't think I breathed at all while watching the teaser movie, dudes. This game corrupted me a decade ago and to see this happening -- it's exactly like this:

dslkjfalksjdfjlksjdf iewjfioesjf sdfij disjfasd fWHAT OMG.

(I will do some pitchforking and angry letter writing if Atlus isn't able to bring it over. I will move to Japan. D:)

OMG.

Looks like this will be my costume lineup of doom for Katsucon:


Friday: Jack Frost (SMT/Persona -- femmed out, of course. I am not skilled in the mascot costuming D:)
Saturday morning: Joshua Shepherd (Silent Hill Homecoming -- possibly post-Alex lake trip for the photoshoot at 11am... which means I actually have to wake up :O! And this probably just means it'll be regular Joshua since I will be too lazy to get up early to get the whole thing just right.)
Saturday night: Hunter (Left 4 Dead -- YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.)

LOL, I like how it goes from happy Jack Frost on Friday to GROSS GROSS GROSS on Saturday. I was going to wait till Dragon*Con for the first appearance of the Hunter costume, but I can't wait. It will be warm and toasty in the February weather and it'll be so much fun. XD

(And you know me and my nasty, nasty, nasty costumes. MOOOHAH~)

Ashley and I played Left 4 Dead last night with a guy from Japan and he was a total sweetheart (and you know I was gushing the whole time, especially whenever he would start talking in Japanese) and thanking us for everything. In his bio on his LIVE profile he says he can understand simple words in English and Ashley and I were squeeing whenever he would go "SMOKER SMOKER~!" or "BOOMER!" and I lost it when we killed a Tank and he went, "YATTA!"

And also during the finale of Dead Air when we hit the radio button and Francis was dawdling and he just starts going, "COME ON, FRANCIS! FRANCIS!"

SO AWESOME~ <3 I wish we always got people that cool and polite in public campaigns. D:

HAHAHAHHA~

Okay, so last night I hit 7/11 and got to witness drunk Dojima (hilarious), boy!Teddie (whom I love with all my heart), and this line which was and always will be classic:

Kanji (to Yosuke): "Ohh... I get it. What you're REALLY asking is: 'Will you please beat the shit out of me, Kanji?'"

And Kanji wanting to feel Teddie's Bear Fur, "C-can I touch it?" -- "NO."

THIS GAME. <3

THANK YOU FOR THE LINK, BB.

1.) Twin Peaks suddenly turned into SILENT HILL. It was kind of Silent Hill before but now it REALLY IS. We just watched the episode where they find the dead vagrant with the chess piece in his mouth. Also, the DVD menu music = SILENT HILL.

AND LOLOLOLOLOL LEO WHAT IS THIS?

2.) "The Letdown" by The White Tie Affair pretty much seems to be a song about a guy cheating on his girlfriend for one night and her finding out -- he sounds so earnest and sad about what he did but I don't feel bad for him at all and am like DAMN RIGHT BITCH when he sings, "If I was you I wouldn't take me back~" -- also, lol, he wants to be let down slowly. Asshat, you are the one who cheated, I will let you down as hard and angry as I want.

Even if the guy in the song is a tool, I still love this song. This album is very good. XD

3.) The campout in Persona 4. Yosuke hording bikinis on his person for Chie and Yukiko to wear, Kanji the badass pitching a bitch cause Yosuke is eating his animal crackers and he WANTED TO FIND THE PENGUIN, Yosuke and your main character almost fainting of gross when Chie and Yukiko presented them with curry featuring like every ingredient under the sun. LOVE.

4.) It is almost 2009? WHAT?

5.) In February, Andy/Akiva/Jorma (aka The Lonely Island) are releasing a cd called INCREDIBAD (these are the boys responsible for SNL's digital shorts) and on it, it will have -- wait for it -- "Dick In A Box", "Natalie Raps", "Lazy Sunday", "Ras Trent", "Jizz In My Pants" AND "SPACE OLYMPICS"~ YESSSSSSSSSSSSS.

There is also a song with T-Pain. But it'll never be as good as, "DOWN AT THE STRIP CLUB, SPENDING CASH. ONES AND FIVES AND EVEN TWOS!" or "I THROW A SILVER DOLLAR AND A LADY GETS HURT~" and of course, "ROBOT VOICE, ROBOT VOICE, ALL OF THE KIDS LOVE THE ROBOT VOICE."

(I DIDN'T KNOW THEY DID BLIZZARD MAN BEFORE THE EPISODE WITH TIM MCGRAW, HOLY CRAP. LOL Ludacris needs to come to the show more often.

HAHAAHAHAH, "THEN WE HANG OUT AND DO LOTS OF SEX WITH GIRLS~")

Oh Andy Samberg. <3

GONNA GO PLAY SOME PERSONA 4 FOR A LITTLE BIT. Heheheeh.

WOO!

So I need to catch up on LJ but mad, but besides that I am having a very good holiday season. Valerie and Brian are here and we're all sitting around and being dorks and such. We played some Left 4 Dead last night (ZOMBIES ON CHRISTMAS~!) and it was a good day.

I got Chrono Trigger DS, lots of shirts -- Space Olympics, Ghost Hunters, Alchemilla Hospital from Silent Hill, Electric Dream Machine and OMG BERT BRINGING NERDY BACK I LOVE YOU (I love my t-shirts), a cute sweater, a jump drive I needed very bad, a heated blanket I had been eyeing in the store, the Haunted Mansion version of Clue -- there's much fun I received and I can't even remember it all now.

And omg, Valerie made me these effing adorable notepads at VistaPrint with the Solo Family on them! You know, when they were all awesome and alive. There's Han, Leia, Jacen, Jaina, Anakin, Chewie and A CRYSTAL SNAKE. I MUST TAKE A PICTURE, THEY'RE SO CUTE.

Now my mom and Valerie and Brian and I are sitting around watching American Gladiators, LOL. And I am being asked where we will all be eating for my birthday and I HAVE NO IDEA. D:

Valerie is also helping me plan out one of my Katsucon costumes -- the one I will be wearing for all the Shin Megami Tensei fun. She mentioned it last night when we were talking about Persona 4 and now I'm super excited and nerdy about it. IF I CAN PULL IT OFF, OF COURSE.

Also, INTO JUNE NOW IN PERSONA 4. GOT KANJI! SCHOOL CAMPOUT NEXT WEEK. :D

YOSUKE ASKED ME WHERE I KEPT MY PORN YESTERDAY. I TOLD HIM IT WAS UNDER THE FUTON.

I LOVE THIS GAME. XD

HMMM.

So maybe I shouldn't have stayed up till 4:30 A.M. playing Persona 4 because I have so much stuff to do today, but I really couldn't help it. I'm still only in like... mid-May. But I met Kanji and he is pretty awesome (okay the bathhouse stuff on the Midnight Channel was CLASSIC <3) and Yosuke's reactions to everything Kanji are amazing. Yosuke also called me on the cell and was like, "SO WHO IS MORE YOUR TYPE, CHIE OR YUKIKO?" And I said Chie and I was hoping that meant he would try macking on Yukiko -- then he asked for her phone number the next day and she basically didn't hear him and started talking about tofu.

OH YEAH, THIS IS MY DARLING TALKING TO THE ALMOST EQUALLY DARLING MAIN CHARACTER GUY OF MINE.



MY MIND, YOSUKE, WHY MUST YOU HELP IT INTO THE GUTTER?

(Also, Yukiko smacking the shit out of Yosuke when he asked for "PRIVATE LESSONS" = YES. XD)

SO TODAY: I need to finish wrapping all my presents, clean the basement and wash the sheets on the bed/couchy thing since Valerie and Brian are coming this week (yay!), finish cleaning my room, finish like three assignments for my class since they're due at midnight tonight, make a real layout/logo for Kriff This/Mindbreak (the votes went towards Mindbreak!) and update all the fanlistings I have.

SO MAYBE I SHOULD GO DO ALL THAT STUFF.

I'll update later on how much I'm actually getting done. LOL~

OH MAN.

LOLOL GAMEFAQS PERSONA 4 BOARD:

Poster A: It's gonna rain in my area for 3 days. *gasp*
Poster B: Make sure you stare at your tv at midnight!
Poster C: I'm in Michigan. If one of yall ain't dying, nobody is living.
Poster D: It's going to snow for 3 nights in my area. So uh..what do I do? Stare into a fire place at midnight?
Poster E: No, snow = computer screen.
Poster F: What if my screen is both my TV and PC screen at the same time?
Poster G: TIME PARADOX occurs.

LOVE. XD

Also, I failed to mention how awesome the part was where Yosuke was swinging those weapons around outside of Wal-Mart Junes and him and the Main Character got arrested. YESSSS~ XD

"HOW ABOUT THIS? OR LIKE THIS?"

Y'ALL NEED TO GET THIS GAME. <3

And oh man! Kou and Daisuke! -- "I LOOOOOOOOOVE THEM BALLS!"

I also absolutely giggled like hell when Kou needed to clean up after basketball practice and Daisuke was gonna help him and it gave me this exact option:

. stay and help out
. be an ass and leave

It wasn't STAY or LEAVE. It was STAY AND HELP. Or BE AN ASS AND LEAVE.

AND HOW AMAZING ARE THE SHADOW'S VOICES? AND OH MY GOD I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE CROSS-DRESSING! (YOSUKE'S HAIR CLIP AND KANJI'S HORRIBLY DONE LIPSTICK LOL~)

I APOLOGIZE FOR ALL YOU HAVING TO DEAL WITH MY CONSTANT FANGASMING AND CAPS LOCK CONCERNING MY LOVE FOR THIS GAME.

(LOOK AT THE JAPANESE ARTBOOK~!!!! <3333)

THROWDOWN~

For some reason Persona seems to be the fandom where I put the most random characters together and absolutely turn them into an OTP even though I'm the only one. Reiji/Eriko, Ulala/Baofu, Mitsuru/Akihiko (actually, I know a couple others who like this one) -- and now this. This sudden urge to write Yosuke/Yukiko.

I don't know -- there's just something about them when they're on screen together. Like when that random guy came up and asked Yukiko out and she was like, "UM NO?" and then Yosuke was all, "HEY REMEMBER WHEN YOU TURNED ME DOWN LIKE THAT?" And she goes, "No."

... so he asks her out again. Love it.

I know people are digging Chie/Yosuke -- and maybe something happens later in the game to cement that. But I'm totally all over Chie/MY SILENT PROTAGONIST OF UTTER AND ABSOLUTE DOOM. Maybe it's cause I have a girl crush on Chie, I don't know.

Also, what the shit is with people bitching about the voice acting in this game? This is actually some really damn good voice acting. There's actually EMOTIONS and such, unlike lots of games that have voice acting so WHAT PEOPLE STOPPPPPPP. D:

Yeah, I went to bed early last night and then couldn't fall asleep so I ended up playing Persona 4. SHOCKER. D:

I swear the Persona games have the absolute best dialogue EVER. First there was the critical hit to the nads -- there was a bitchload of other awesome quotes too numerous to write down -- AND THEN I GOT TO THIS GUY IN THE HALLWAYS OF THE SCHOOL AND ALMOST DIED LAUGHING AND HAD TO TAKE A PICTURE WITH MY PHONE.



OH MY LAWD I LOVE IT SO MUCH. XD


(I'M SO PROUD OF ALL THE GOOD REVIEWS IT'S GETTING~ <33333 MAYBE THIS WILL PINCH ATLUS IN THE BUTT TO REMAKE THE FIRST GAME.)

AND RISE IS SO HOT WHAT AM I GONNA DO WHEN I GET TO HER I'M GONNA HAVE LIKE AN OT8 WITH THIS GAME. D:


(YOSUKE/TEDDIE LOLOLOLOLOLOL??? I LOVE WHEN HE CALLS HIM TED.)
tenel_ka: ([ smt - yosuke ])
I love how I I'm not even a week into the year on this game and things are going ABSOLUTELY BATSHIT. BODIES FROM ANTENNAS? WHO DOES THAT?

Also, whenever I turn the game on I have to watch this, cause it's so darling and I effing love the song -- it makes me want to get up and dance. I was listening to the soundtrack cd while I was cleaning my room yesterday and I don't know if you've ever tried before but cleaning and dancing aren't two things that go together well. D:

(Unless you are sweeping and mopping or something -- okay, flashbacks to Alvin and the Chipmunks when Alvin couldn't go with Dave and the others somewhere and he had to clean and he was singing Bippity-Bippity Bop With My Favorite Mop. Does anyone else remember that shit? XD)

Anyways, of course I squee like mad at 0:59 and ANTENNA AT 0:47. WOOOOOO! INSANITY! :D

And glasses and school uniforms have always been hot -- but this game ups that factor like ten-fold. I LOVE THEIR GLASSES.

P.S. YUKIKO SO PRETTY~ AND TEDDIE SO CUTE~ I LOVE THEM ALL SO FAR.

I JUST GOT MY COPY OF PERSONA 4 IN THE MAIL. AND I BET YOU ALREADY KNOW WHO MY FAVORITE CHARACTER IS.

Today I was at my desk with my headphones on jamming to the Revelations: Persona soundtrack -- which is some of my favorite video game music ever (along with Silent Hill, Myst and Bioshock). I have been on a Persona kick lately. The fourth game comes out tomorrow and this past weekend I put a nice, happy little television in my bedroom which I hooked my Playstation up to. My old games (Persona, Persona 2, Silent Hill, all my Final Fantasies, etc.) won't work on my PS2 and I have a bunch of PSX games on my Video Game Heist of '08 list -- which obviously won't get finished by '09 and will just turn into the GREAT VIDEO GAME HEIST IN GENERAL list. XD

So I continued Revelations: Persona last night before I went to sleep and giggled myself silly at it. I love this game so hard. Especially Chris. And Mark. And Brad. And Ellen. And Nate.

... and everyone. D:

And the music. kdsafjksjdfkajsdfljasdfkjsdkj~

In basement video gaming news, since I've already given the bedroom video gaming update lol (see how much I love my video games) -- Valerie, Brian, Ashley and I stayed up till 6 a.m. playing Left 4 Dead on Saturday night/Sunday morning. We were playing No Mercy on Advanced and the finale kicked our asses hard. We only got to the second tank maybe once or twice. And we tried everything. Hiding in the closet, running away, finding different spots... sfdajfakjsdfkjasd ONE DAY WE WILL BEAT IT ON ADVANCED. The closet always works until the Tank comes. Bitchface can take like twice the firepower he can in Normal. It doesn't help when he knocks us off the roof of the hospital either. We worked so hard to get up there, you ass. :|

"Francis. Bill. Zoey. Ammo over here! Zoeeeyy! FRANcis! BIIIIIIIII-ILLLLLLL~! GWABBIN' PEELZ~! GRAB-BIN-A-PIIIIPE-BOMB. GET IT OFF ME GET IT OFF ME GEEET ITTT OFFFF MEEEEEEE!!!11"

I love Louis. <3



LOLOL GUYS GUYS GUYS: I CALL SAM. I WONDER WHAT HIS STATS ARE. BITCHFACE +6! WAIT WAIT NO. CAN I BE THE METALLICAR? POWERS: NOISE DISTRACTION? DEAN: DUCKY LIPS +4!
