Persona 4 Golden Review

Any PSVita user should play this game and I mean it! This game is so huge and so complex that I never played a game like this in my life.

Persona 4 Golden is a remastered PS2 game for the PSVita. It even cost less than the regular Vita game and IT IS SO AWESOME!

The game starts a mysterious velvet car with a freaky man and a pretty woman and they’ll introduce themselves as witness and assistance to your destiny. Persona 4 Golden is like a TV show which lets you somewhat control the story.

The game plays on a per day basis which lets you spend time in events or people in your social link. A social link is needed for you to become strnger. If you’re OC like me, this game will freak you out. You need to schedule what you want to do for future days but sometimes the game introduces a new feature, event or person that you need to take care off. You need to pick which event or person you want to spend time with most of the time and I always choose women first hahaha.

Character development is extreme in this game. I promise you that you’ll care for most of the characters in Persona 4 Golden. I’m almost half in the game and I still need to max out about 60% of the social links I have.

The game has two worlds. The real world and the TV world. The real world has mostly all social links and events and the TV world has the dungeons and Teddie.

Dungeon crawling are sometimes dragging since mostly you’re looking for chests and golden hands. Golden hand monsters are rich in EXP and Money and they are plenty per floor. You’re not required to finish the dungeon in one go. The game will let you go back to the real world if you need to replenish supplies and heath.

Most players have timed in 100+ hours before finishing. I think I’ll reach that time or more because I want to max out the social links before the New Game+. I’ll update this post once I finish the game.


Old Skul Games


Me and my wife watched Wreck It Ralph last month and it was awesome. For a gamer, that movie showed a lot of reference from past games. It even has the phrase “Aeris is alive!!” in one of the scenes. That movie will make you want to play Mario Bros. 2 in your big old NES.

I wish I still have my old game consoles. I wasn’t the type of kid that collects stuff. I used to have NES, Gameboy, Super Family Computer, Gameboy Advance, PSX, PS2 and PS3. All of them were the first version of the hardware.


I was able to play SNES, Sega Saturn, N64 and XBox in a rental shop. That shop consumed my life hahaha. I spent more time there than home. I watch other people play when I don’t have money. I even stole money from my Mom just to play there and I lost my first bike because I was busy playing. My dad said he will never buy me another bike hahaha. I played and finished Final Fantasy VI (I was FF3 before) at that shop and I finished a lot of RPGs there. That shop fueled my gaming needs back then.

Retro video games are awesome and should be experienced by everyone. The feel of adventure from those games are not found in most games today. Most games are into realism and money making features.

Before in Resident Evil (1 to 3). Finishing the game will open up new clothes for the player, new modes and infinite weapons. Now you have to buy them to unlock it. How crazy is that?

Now I have a DS, PSP and PSVita. Handhelds are what you need when you have a very active baby boy. I don’t have time to turn on the TV and setup a game console anymore. Maybe I’ll get back to consoles when Geoff turns 3 years old. 🙂
