You’d think I’d just be numb to Arc Systems’ stupidity by this point, but no.
I swear, I’m just going to pull fan discontinuity on this crap, because this is just so stupid.
Because they clearly aren’t even trying at this point. Like, Arena was poorly written and all but really? Pulling the Dark Hour back? They’re just pulling things back out of nothing. The Dark Hour is done. Think of something new for Christ’s sake.
Excuse me, but no.
Just because you don’t like something, you can’t just push the “poorly written” stamp onto it like it were fact.
Arena was surprisingly well written for how fragmented it was with it’s story modes, and even with the more comical tone that I didn’t like too much, it stayed very true to what the games were about in its connections to Analytic Psychology and how everything was tied together neatly and with reason. It also did the rare, and bold move, of acknowledging that people *can* step backwards in their developments and may require wake-up calls to not reset back to where they started with, which is something media RARELY do, because many people don’t *want* to consider this possibility, because it’s frustrating and depressing, but that doesn’t make it any less true and I applaud Arena for addressing this fact.
As for your issues with the Dark Hour being back, this is NOT news in so many ways:
1.) The (canon) Japanese Fanbook on P3, which was released before P3FES ever even hit the shelves confirmed that the Dark Hour is not a unique phenomenon, but a state that occurs when a being that shouldn’t exist in the material world (usually a powerful Shadow) attempts to manifest in it. Ryoji was the cause of P3’s Dark Hour, but he is FAR from the only being that could cause such a state, so it would make LESS sense not to use such states again than to bring them back. Also, note how the setting of P4U2 has subtle differences from P3’s Dark Hour; that’s because this time around, a different being is the cause and we’ll see which in the game. If you’re complaining about a Dark-Hour-like state being used again, you could just as well complain about P4 using Shadows; because Shadows, as mook enemies, were a concept introduced in P3, just like the Dark Hour, and bringing THEM back is just as “uncreative” as bringing back the possibility of the real world being wrapped into a semi-unconscious state.
2.) In P4U, it was confirmed that the Kirijo Group had been experimenting with ways to artificially cause Dark-Hour-like states. So how exactly is it news this could happen?
3.) The merging of the worlds, as it almost happened towards the end of P4? How is that NOT a Dark-Hour-like state! Heck, we’re even getting the fog again in P4U2!
4.) The game isn’t even out yet and you are already complaining about the plot. That’s a bad habit fandoms have. It’s like looking at the cover of the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, taking out random excerpts, and then complaining the story revolves entirely around dragons . That’s not legit criticism, it’s just being impatient and *wanting* to hate on something.
Look, legit criticism is good and well, there will always be plenty to criticise, but before taking apart a work with so much determination, maybe you should wait for it to actually be *released*. And also get some background information, if possible? You didn’t even know the scenario was written by Atlus and *not* ArcSys, after all.
I waited 4 episodes of P4GA to complain about the pacing. Why did I do that? Because you need at least four episodes to know if the pacing is actually bad! It’s being patient, waiting and seeing!! It’s not that hard! And even then, I rationally pointed out why the pacing was bad, instead of just complaining they “weren’t even trying”. Criticism is supposed to be constructive, even if the person you criticizing will never read it, because SOMEBODY who writes is going to read it, and they would probably like to know what could have done better in your opinion for their own future endeavors!
Just. Please. Put more thought into saying these things. While you have a right to complain about problems, as an author myself, I know how hurtful it is when people complain about things you haven’t even released yet. These people write for a living. Let them do their job before you rip into it. Please.
Thank you, you beautiful knowledgeable person you.
