as always, my takeaway from P5S is "damn it would be cool if a Persona game was good"
the (seemingly) siloed nature of its development harms it way more than I expected it would. That said, it's still fun, the interactions are good, and the new chars are really likeable! I just wish it had that extra bit of quality that the Persona spinoffs always seem to lack
I'm still going to finish it, b/c I love seeing these kids, but it just feels like typical Persona wasted potential in those bits. There's an entire mechanic around "interacting with stuff far away from you" that you'd think would fit perfectly with P5R's hookshot... but... nope
Though this all comes with the standard Persona spinoff caveats - the chronological placement of the story means that very little character growth can happen, the lack of *any* QoL improvements from P5R feel glaringly obvious, there's no Yoshizawa. All of that stuff weakens it.
It's still goofy and over the top, but battles are quick (like they were in P5) and super stylish (like they were in P5), so I can't complain. It feels like a completely different style of game than Hyrule Warriors was, and while I liked that, I much prefer this
turn-based JRPG combat always feels like an... abstraction of combat in many ways, and P5S feels like it's removing the abstraction layer, since you're now pressing the button and swinging the weapon or whatever. Being able to pause time and do Persona magic also works real well
The Tron Legacy OST is still an all-time banger extravaganza but the remix album was just "what if all these were dance tracks" and had a truly incredible lineup of collaborators. Extremely fuckin sick album
I think the first thing I heard of Daft Punk was probably Discovery, which is still my personal favorite album, but I remember listening to the Tron Legacy R3C0NF1GUR3D remix album just on repeat for HOURS. That one will always have a hold on me
I think that Sabine Wren should- and deserves to- behead a guy with the darksaber
other than that though, it's a banger
the biggest problem with Star Wars Rebels is that, unlike its forebear show Clone Wars, Rebels actually stays true to its TV-PG rating
