Persona 3 Reload – PC Review

Persona 3 Reload is an Adventure RPG developed by Atlus and published by Sega. The Persona series first originated as a spin-off of the Megami Tensei games. The series always has us being high schoolers going through some extreme situations. When it comes to controversy, Persona 3 Reload does have a few that even I agree with. Because of the missing content of both "The Answer" and FeMC. However, recently a trusted leaker when it comes to the Persona series, says that we are getting this prologue as DLC. Which has a lot of fans of the series fuming about it being DLC. But, what was sacrificed by this was the FeMC option being forsakened. This is because it was a part of P3P and Reload is a remaster of P3FES. So, you're telling me I'll get free food and board, I'll get a gun and you wan...
