Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Gee, how many years has it been since I last had a valid double-post on this thread?
Beat Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 on normal mode, unluckily with plenty of social links not maxed out.
Out of all the Personas I've fused, I found Shiva with Repel Physical skills the most useful, at least against the last few encounters. Another advice that I can give is to have all supporting characters learn every skills, and Chie in particular does not become very useful until you can Power Charge her and pull off God's Hand. Naoto can use the same tactics with Mind Charge and Megidolaon, but her defense is weak.
I'm going to replay this game on New Game+. Easily the best game I've played this year.
