Where could I have messed up to get a good, but not that good ending? SPOILERS

#1White Wolf KibaPosted 1/30/2013 2:10:20 PM
I was maxing out my social links, I had more than half of them maxed out
all of these were maxed out:
Nanako
Dojima
Yukiko (girlfriend)
Chie
Youske
Marie
the band girl
the basketball guy and his buddy

I was also working on these guys
Rise was up to 8
Kanji 6 or so
Naoto - none because I couldn't figure out how to activate her s-link thing yet
the creepy nurse at around 5
Fox - 7 I think, i was on the cats guy quest
Teddie 9

Nanako got sent to the hosptial, stuff happened
I chose not to throw the guy in the TV, Nanako got better and the game just skipped ahead making me miss not only Marie's dungeon but more s-link opportunities and everything.

I hate the fact that now I might have to replay the whole game just to get a better ending.
I read that if I throw the guy in the TV Nanako dies and I don't want that.

The ending was pretty lame, Yu goes home while there's still weird fog in the town, his friends see him off and that's it.

Did you guess the murderer correctly?

Having to explain your joke doesn't make it clever, but having to have a joke explained to you doesn't make it unfunny.

I mean, P4 is a fantastic game and I will replay it on NG+
I just feel bad because I had a good thing going with S-Links and everything

There's a very specific path, if you will, for the choices when you confront Namatame to continue the game

That's not what he's talking about, there's another choice you have to make on Dec. 5 and it doesn't sound like you got that far. You need to go back to Dec. 3 when you're in the hospital room and choose the right responses when you're talking to Yosuke. It's not simply that you choose not to throw him into the TV, all six of the responses have to be correct in order for you to move on to the Good or True ending.

Hopefully you saved when the game strongly encouraged you to...

When I confront him in the dungeon or the hospital?
Because in the Dungeon no matter what I said I had to eventually choose the 3rd option

Make different choices at the hospital. There's a very specific path you have to follow in the conversation in Namatame's room.

If you haven't saved over your 12/3 file, you can reload and try again.

If you're looking for a more specific tip, insist that something's not right; your info is lacking somehow.

Thanks
that's good to know :)
I hope Nanako still lives at the end of the game

This is hands down one of the best JRPGs I've ever played
P3(played it on PSP) was great too, but this one's even better

Waiting for Ni No Kuni Wizard's Edition to get here now

Since you've already gotten hints on how to avoid the timeskip, to activate Naoto's S. Link, go to Central Shopping District, North and talk to the guy in a suit on the right side just after you enter the area, then go talk to Naoto.
