A couple of my friends pointed out this absurd LinkedIn post from the gentleman behind the actual monetary success of the popular webcomic Penny Arcade, Robert Khoo. Here it is in full — http://www.linkedin.com/jobs2/view/9887522?trk=job_nov — but allow me to summarize:

Persona Q Shadow Of The Labyrinth Famitsu Plot Synopsis & Gameplay System
Again just a very short summary (but longer than that for Dancing All Night) and really just an introduction to the gameplay system. So here’s your Glee-style recap/summary.
The story takes place in the middle of Persona 4 (during the culture festival to be precise) and also Persona 3. It takes place mainly in the P4 world, while the P3 members are teleported to Yasogami High. They will need to battle shadows in the labyrinth in order to retrieve the memories of new characters Rei and Zen, who hold the key to explaining things. You can choose to play as P3 or P4 Protagonist, but you get different storylines and interactions based on who you choose. AKA PLAY TWICE! YAY!
For more details check out the cut.
A word like Huh?–used as a repair initiator when, for example, one has not clearly heard what someone just said– is found in roughly the same form and function in spoken languages across the globe. We investigate it in naturally occurring conversations in ten languages and present evidence and arguments for two distinct claims: that Huh? is universal, and that it is a word.

I am so excited for this game you have no idea
A while ago, someone mentioned that there was some cut dialogue found in the Persona 4 game with full voice acting, including piece of Yosuke’s Social Link that were changed.
Naturally I had to find out exactly was being said, and after obtaining the proper tools for the job, got into my copy of Persona 4 vanilla, found the files, made a wav of the dialogue, then edited them into mp3s and…I was not disappointed. There are a few interesting things in there including the near complete soundtrack of Persona 3 dumped right after P4’s, including testing tracks like that really weird Tartarus one and a version of Burn my Dread without lyrics.
Anyway, this post is about the entire cut dialog of the Yosuke’s social link, stringed together in almost order for your enjoyment. And because it’s posted here, as you may have guessed, it dips heavily into “this was probably a romance option” side, including reactions that you find in the girl paths, and a different way of him saying “don’t go” compared to when you finish the true ending.
It’s also really good voice acting work on Yuri’s part, and I’m pretty disappointed it was removed. When you think about it, it means something had been planned into the late stages if the voice acting work was done for it in both Japanese and English or at least be in the script Yuri was given and cut and edited for the game. Why it was removed, or where exactly it was and what they were going to do with it may depend entirely on what Atlus was planning, and what they ended up doing. Still, it’s a pretty interesting piece of trivia.

So long as I don’t try… nothing’ll change, even if we catch the killer. Right now, I’m just plain old me.
And I want to do what I can with everything I’ve got! With you guys!
I never knew I had such heat inside…
…Argh, don’t make me say stuff like that!
I like you.
