Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Playlog 7

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 59.5 hours
  • Level 33

Not much happening today, as I rescued Rise quite early the dungeons were closed to me for some time so I focused on boosting Social Links, reading books and eating at Aiya to boost multiple stats (especially on those rainy days).

Rise and Teddy joined the team and The Nose granted the ability to fuse using 4 or more Persona’s so there’s some interesting experimentation to do there.

Current date in game 12th July

Back to Dungeon 3 and I decided to start grinding from the first floor again to build up a few more levels – during this process I played around with fusing some persona’s and managed to luck into the ‘The Nose Doesn’t Always Know’ achievement for experiencing a fusion accident.  I can’t remember what I was aiming for but I got an Oni which had some nice physical attack skills so I wasn’t complaining 🙂

I continued through Dungeon 3 and managed to reach the 11th floor and the boss room with very little difficulty.  By this time it was getting pretty late in real life (around midnight on a Sunday) but based on the difficulty of previous bosses I decided to take a peek.

Spoiler alert!

Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Playlog 5


  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 54.5 hours
  • Level 31 🙂

Today has been one of those days where I’ve managed to get some serious time in but it’s been pretty broken up – I managed to grab just under an hour this morning whilst the family was out and then some more time on and off over the course of the day before culminating in 1-1.5 hours this evening.

Still grinding Rise’s dungeon (although have taken some time out to bump a few Social Links in the real world between grinding sessions) – currently camped out on Level 9 after rinsing the Amorous Snake boss on Level 7 although a bit more grinding seems to be necessary to blast through these levels so I might return to Level 1 again.

Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Playlog 4

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 51 hours
  • Level 29 😦
  • Achievements earned –
    • Granter of Your Desires
    • An Acquired Taste

Deciding to take a short break from dungeon grinding I headed back out of the TV realm to the real world and progressed a couple of quests and some social links.  Whilst there I sold off my spoils to the Weapon Master and gained access to some new weapons and armour #win!

In addition to this I gained a trophy for buying from the TV Shopping Channel and another for drinking coffee at the cafe in Okina

After this I went back to dungeon grinding with Kanji instead of Yosuke and blasted through levels 1 to 4 before an unfortunate party wipe on level 5 due to the Silver Dice’ Last Resort skill.  Reloading I got back to level 4 (with a handy exp boost taking me to level 30 thanks to a random encounter with two Treasure Hands) only to be subject to defeat when my the main character ate a 299 damage lightning attack.  To be honest this is, in my opinion, one of the most irritating mechanics in the game – anyone else can die as often as you can rez them and you can carry on but once your main buys the farm it’s Game Over.

  • Difficulty – Very Hard

  • Level 29

Continuing my grinding of the Strip Club dungeon – progressed to floor 6 before restarting from 1 and progressing to floor 7 (where the difficulty definitely ramped up and everything seemed to kill various party members in one hit!) and stopped just outside the boss’s door.

Goho-M’ed out and saved progress with hero at level 29 and Yosuke, Chie and Yukiko  between 27 and 29.  Based on the prevalence of mobs weak to electricity I may swap out Chie for Kanji on my next run through to level him up beyond 26.

Turns out skill cards can only be used on the hero’s Persona’s so no need to invest in Zio as planned.

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 46.5 hours
  • Level 27

Not much time spent on this tonight – Rise has been kidnapped and spent some time roaming town to find out information so I could unlock the dungeon.  Cleared first 4 floors now entering level 5 – almost everything seems to be vulnerable to electricity which is a pain as I only have these skills on the hero character… may need to invest in a Zio card (or better!)
