Retrospection: Persona 4 (Story) Chapter  4 - Golden Week

Recordings : The Good and  the Bad :

I've been experimenting with Widescreen capture and it seems to be coming along smoothly.  While there are some videos in chapter 5 (parts 1-2) that are still 4:3, and am working on making widescreen my standard recording definition. That means rest assured that all future episodes (chapter 5 part 3 and on) will be targeted to be widescreen. In one of the chapters I forgot to filter out the mouse curser in my post screen recording I am deeply sorry about that.   

Castle King Boss (and my failure):

I actually had trouble with the King Boss as you will see. This was the case because one I had grinded my characters to a obscured level the week before (when I was not recording), this resulted in the King's attack doing very little to Akira, Chie and Yosuke. However, Yukiko, who was lower level and more vulnerable than the rest of team unfortunately got knocked out. The major error was I kept casting Agi (when maybe I should cast more Bufu...). Here's why, the regular  versions of the King Boss,  whom called "Positive Kings" are usually weak against fire (Agi), so I from battling those underlings I got into the habit of casting Agi at them every time. However, as you saw in the video, King Boss, called "Contrarian King" obviously are the opposite, he absorbs Agi and regains HP from it.  This resulted in me healing the Contrarian King a few times, and dragging out the battle.

Gameplay Social Links: 

The Golden Week is the intermediate chapter between Yukiko’s and Kanji's upcoming chapter. Multiple social links are opening up, my primary strategy is to be solid with everyone on the investigation team which means I will try to strengthen my bonds with my teammates however, that doesn't mean I will neglect my other school friends and family. Yumi's social link events are one of the most interesting of the club social links and I'm also going to strengthen my social links with Dojima and Nanoko when I have the chance.
