Well the news hit recently of Index corporation(Atlus’s parent company) filing for Bankruptcy, so now’s the time for wild speculation about the future of Atlus! Potential buyers, whether or not Index would actually auction off Atlus, if they were sold what company would be the best fit and so on.
Also, we’ve got another big guest coming on the podcast this Friday, and if you want to know who it is in advance, it’s announced at the end of the episode!
Once and a while the formalities need to be laid to rest and casual discussion needs to occur. In this episode we discussed the rumors that were surrounding a potential reveal of Persona 5 at E3 2013. We also talked about our favorite non-Persona/SMT related games from the show too. We assure you, S.Link FM is not becoming a general gaming podcast. This episode was recorded more to hold people over till the juicier episodes in the future arrive.
Episode 6 is finally here! This one is all about Persona 4: Arena, the competitive scene surrounding it and fighting games at large. Our panel consists of Levito and Armada, with GAF’s own fighting game enthusiast MotheHawk and pro fighting game player, Dacidbro. We talk all about the FGC, overcoming competitive gaming anxiety, the differences between the various fighting game genres. Dacidbro and MotheHawk give comprehensive detail on the mechanics of Persona 4: Arena. Don’t think, feel!
Dacidbro also live streamed the whole show, which you can watch here.
The occult has always been a huge part of Shin Megami Tensei, and therefore also a huge part of the Persona series. In Episode 5 of S.Link FM, we delve into the theology, mysticism, tarot influence, philosophy and myriad of topics pertaining to the ridiculous amount of detail that goes into the SMT games. Joined by resident SMT/Persona Keeper of Knowledge cj_iwakura, psychotherapist venfayth, and theological/philosophical enthusiast ScraftyDevil, this was a heavy discussion, but ultimately one of our best yet, hope you enjoy listening.
On episode 4 of S.Link FM, we discuss the various anime adaptions of the Persona franchise. Firstly our panel gives a brief history of our experience with the Anime medium, where we’re pretty all over the place. CJKeats being the Anime connoisseur of the group, and the only one brave enough to watch Persona Trinity Soul. From there we tackle Persona 4: The Animation, and the upcoming Persona 3 movies. Most of the discussion spotlight was on the Persona 4 anime, and our general feelings on how it handled the story, plot, and characters from the game.
The S.Link FM podcast rises to the top of a mountain made of burning questions and shared experiences to to summon a storm of LBGT topics for discussion! Is Kanji gay? Who is the Sumaru Genie? Were you guys offended by that babe hunt scene in Persona 3? Why isn’t anybody talking about the casino guys in Persona 1? Our guests shidoshi (writer for EGM, podcast legend of WAHP, and pressing issues panelist) and Inorigo (writer for GameRanx and RPGSite) lay down the knowledge and perspective you’ll need to conquer society’s many pitfalls. Lend us your ear for another S. Link FM!

The S.Link FM podcast returns to speculate upon hopes, dreams, and what little “info” we have about Persona 5. Our guest Inorigo (@Talespun, writer for GameRanx and RPGSite) chimes in with some great points for your consideration. We ask questions about Persona 5’s combat, social link system, dungeons, cell phones, release date and even what console/handheld it might be on. Will our dreams come true or is S.Link FM a place where dreams go to die? You’ll just have to listen and find out!

In the very first episode of S.Link FM, we decide to start things off a little casually and go over how each of us got into the Persona series. We decided to do this podcast on a whim last night so I apologize if the first episode seems disorganized. Nonetheless, we manage to talk about how great Persona 2 is, how we got into the series, Persona 4 Arena at EVO2013, Persona 5 speculation, and jello’s utilikilt.
