Anne Ladyem (anneladyem.com) and Jared go through the various versions of Persona 3 and figure out which is the best version to play.

We also talk about some things this game does that we wish the series would bring back and other things we are glad the series got away from.

We also talk Persona 4 Dancing All Night since that has been given a PS4 port.
