It was nice to hear Aisha again. Was Brodeur off hiding somewhere?

I love Kung Fury!

I was glad to have Aisha back, as well! In hopes of having her on more frequently, we’re working on upgrading her sound setup. As for Brodeur, he had some lame excuse about being sick.

Brodeur was hiding from me.

But he can’t last forever.

I will hunt him.
And I will find him.

This is horrifyingly funny for me, because 10 years ago Mass Effect came out, in which you kill bad guys and complete quests for XP, and use talking to people to influence story elements, and said your choices matter, when all that’s needed to prove they don’t is a second play through. Which means ME is just an American version of Persona 3 with one fewer endings.

Then ME2 came out, which used the same dichotomy, and effectively had 2 endings,* which again meant that it had one fewer endings than Persona 4.

And now, a decade later, I sit completely unshocked that Dan likes Persona 5.

Friggin’ WEEB!

You may also want to pick up Persona Q for the 3DS, 3D gimmick not required, if you like Wizardry/Grimrock style RPGs. That also means it’s also more like original flavor Persona.

* Unless you count the same cut scene with fewer surviving characters as different endings.
