    Default Phantasy Star Universe

    Can't wait for this to come out. It's been like 5 years since I played PSO (Didn't have BB to play it on Xbox or GC at the time).

    Anybody else interested in this game?

    depends on what type of game it actually is. some write ups say it's an MMO, other say it's single player, while other still call it an MMO with a single player aspect.

    if it turns out to be a true single player turnbased RPG, I'm all over it. Phantasy Star used to be an awesome series, why they removed the story and single player aspect is beyond me.

    If it's an MMO I won't get it as online hack n slash dungeon crawlers bore me.

    It has both an online and offline component. Both modes are more of an action-RPG, there is no turn based content found here. The offline mode has a full story and is about 15 hours in length.

    The online mode is much the same as offline - all action- RPG. You're able to have up to 6 team members in your party as you go to the different locales.

    All in all, it's much like the true sequel to PSO that we never got. The fights have a much faster pace to them. I found the PS2 controller to be a bit akward at first (unlike the DC controller when I first played PSO), but you get used to it.

    I haven't been able to play online yet, as there is a DNAS error preventing me from playing it (has to do with needing a J PS2). I've played about 4 hours into the offline mode and it's pretty good. I'm just not-so-patiently waiting for the domestic release (supposedly on Oct 24th) so that I can finally play online.

    Phantasy Star is really the only RPG series I've ever really enjoyed.

    Yes, I'll definitely be buying this, but I'm hoping for a good single player campaign.. I'll be a little more hesitant if it's strictly an MMO.

    Yeah, mags were only cool if they were hacked. I remember having a complete collection of hacked mags at one time.


    Definately my favorite.

    Mags are gone, replaced with "Partner Macherinery". I'm not quite sure how they work, but you can supposedly level it up to the point where it will fight alongside you. I wish I could read Japanese during the single player campaign, as I've just gotten to the point where you get your PM, and it doesn't make any sense to me yet.

    woop i was playing it and its confusing because the tutorial is bugged and crashes the game if you go through it.

    Plays like a refined PSO.

    Which is not worth $10.00 a month, or whatever the fuck Sega is charging.

    Also, the lag really is starting to bug me. Could this be just because it's a beta?

    Damn right - I got to the 4th floor on the tutorial. The game freezes up.

    Not a good sign, Sega...

    I played the game on the xbox and liked it except the 2nd boss was hard for me to beat alone so I stopped. Def looking forward to PSU (and it's the name of the college I went to as well!) but no online access on my xbox 360 (old xbox adapter doesn't allow my level of wireless security) to try out the beta. I'll probably get it for my PC because I'm addicted to MMOs. Sounds like more to the MMO side than the single player side.


    Deaf, female, and a gamer. Got a problem with that?

    to all of those complaining, all of these bugs and slowdown and all are native to the 360 version. People have been playing the PC version since august without any of this happening.

    So should I get PS2 or PC version?

    PS2

    Pro- Better controls, it feels right to play a PS game on a console

    Con- worse graphics, harder to play online (have to buy a wireless adapter or have a long ethernet cord running through the house), have to somehow get a keyboard going, worried about fitting patches on a memory card

    PC

    Pro- better graphics, internet already set up, keyboard is already there, easy to patch

    Con- worse controls, but I could buy a USB-PS2 adapter thingy.

    Ok it totally looks like PC is winning, but damn playing it on a PC would be totally weird... maybe I should just buy both lol. Play the single player on PS2 and MP on PC.
