Waiting on my amazon shipment.

Also, I haven't beaten FES yet. Stupid real life.

I really want one of these games on the DS - that seems like the only way I'm able to sit down with RPGs these days. Still, super stoked for this.

I'm waiting on Amazon shipments too, and am incredibly excited about this game. I've even been reading up on the previous SMT games out of curiosity about this series.

I'm hoping for a "99 Names of God Boss Rush" myself.

Just found out this morning that it's on the way to my place via Amazon as an early Birthday present. Hopefully it will come by Friday!

I have the P3 soundtrack disc in my iTunes library at work, and every once in a while one of the tracks will come up if I'm in shuffle mode. Every time this happens, I get super psyched for P4 - and it just happened again! Although Want to be Close is perhaps not my number one nostalgia pick from P3's soundtrack.

Yeah. This is why I won't be participating in this fun club. I mean, I'm about 10 days away from finishing P3, but I know I want a break, not to immediately jump into P4.

Persona doesn't deal in YHVH. This would be an amazing feature for SMT4 though.

Also, Kanzeon is the best persona and I'm already disappointed you can't fight with her.

The only thing I miss about working in technical support is co-workers that understand the importance of taking time off around important video game releases. Now, I'd be surprised if a single other person in my building had even heard of SMT.

I hope my copy arrives today. I suppose I could log onto Amazon and find out myself.

Edit: Nope, still one state away.

According to Amazon, mine won't be here until tomorrow.

Good thing I played the first couple hours a few weeks ago. IT'S SO GOOD.

I just hit the part where you first meet the history teacher - where she says "I don't know how much you know about world history, but I'm an expert" - and I was lollin' so, so hard. I unconditionally love this game already, and I'm not even into the real game yet.

Yeah, that was great. Too bad I was reading so greedily that it whizzed right by me (and I was immediately reprimanded for it).

I'm off tomorrow, so I'm planning on heading out and finding a copy somewhere.

No, I didn't reserve it. Yes, this may actually be the one time I probably should've done that. But we'll see.

The new camera in the dungeons takes a little bit to get use to but I'm diggin' it so far. The characters are so dynamic and amazing.

My only complaint is that [when i first went to buy a weapon, i had to stick to a katana].

WTF.

At least Teddy's voice isn't overtly annoying. I like that. I know I'm gonna hit up Chie first. She's AWESOME!

Sadly, there is no Persona 4 in Mudville. I mean, Montreal. Guess we'll have to wait 'till tomorrow.

Dammit, I couldn't find a YouTube clip of Jimi Hendrix playing that song, there were only covers. Now I'm twice as sad.

Gamestop was supposed to get 12 boxes from UPS today - and only 11 arrived. The 12th? The one with the new releases, of course. I'm not going to be able to pick the game up until tomorrow, and that's IF it's in.

I just went to fight the first boss. [Yukiko's boss] and [there were no teleporters before the fight].

Now I'm about to repeat the past hour of gameplay. I wish I could download a persona 4 theme for my computer, the game is so hip.

Always stock up on Goho-Ms in P4. Also, before you confront any boss, you'll always receive a warning that something awful is behind the door. Use this opportunity to warp out and save at the entrance, since you can re-enter the dungeon on the same floor you warped out of.

Chie is awesome, and she gets a 1-hit kill move when you level up her persona some.

It's pretty helpful.

I'm hoping this fun club goes on until at least the first week or two of January. Mostly because there's a 100% chance that I won't own the game until the end of the month.

Have fun without me, lucky jerks.
