So I bought a PS4 off of eBay to continue putting my life back together, as shallow as that sounds, and there were problems, but more on that later because hell yes, I’ll sacrifice Netflix quality to keep game downloads rockin’ steady.

If I remember correctly, everything I did with my PS4 from launch would halt a download’s progress, but Arrested Development leading up to new episodes I haven’t seen didn’t last night.

It’ll Be Awhile Until November

I’m frustrated because rather than MAX several Confidants at once, I should have run through them as they came. “Finishing” the game with only two was a mistake. Nobody told me, if you couldn’t tell by my referencing a full year of gameplay yesterday.

Better than the game itself is my discovery of the Japanese VO pack on PSN. Thanks, Atlus!

I Maxed A Confidant

Playing a Persona game connected to a TV and an outlet is weird. It’s about as weird as subplots raised and dropped by Mishima Yuuki. This guy texted me one night and wound up my first MAX Confidant. Sakura-chan’s trouncing him with that natural 20 only moments prior felt satisfying.

I’ve got all the Confidants registered, but I’ll really need another half a game to level all of them up in my first play through. More irritating is how slowly stats are leveled, but I’ve lost sight of activities that raise them more than marginally. All in all, I don’t want Persona 5 to end!

The game is fantastic and a totally direct sequel to Persona 4 Golden, so I feel right at home.

Popcap and Criterion Executives Leave Their Studios

I like Electronic Arts and the software they put out, but they also seem to have the highest rate of turn over for executives. Over the new year, two stories broke about the restructuring within key studios at Electronic Arts. First, Criterion developers responsible for founding the studio left. Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry are working to form a new studio together. Next, Popcap CEO Dave Roberts and co-founder Jason Kapalka have left, though Kapalka will remain a creative consultant. What's going on over there? Hope this doesn't spell disaster for Criterion's new IP. I'm still really excited for Garden Warfare.

Biggest Surprise video game of 2013

Most Surprising Game of 2013 Award
I only played one of the games nominated for this award and that was Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. That downloadable spin-off didn't win the award, but I desperately need to play the game that did. Path of Exile really took off in the wake of a botched Diablo III. Click through for Game of the Year awards and video game news, reviews, previews, and more.

New Video Games for the week of December 15th

New Video Games December 15th - December 21st, 2013
The year is slowing down but I'm still dying to get my hands on these final Sega 3D Classics. Shinobi III and Streets of Rage are out this week and I can't decide between the two. I promised myself I'd only buy two of these 3D-remakes but I'll probably download both of these in addition to 3D Sonic the Hedgehog from last week.
