Phantasy Star Online 2

Recommended Posts

>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm1ZPgxStE4


 


Free to play


Official Site: http://pso2.jp/


Genre: MMORPG (Sci-fi)


Combat System: 3rd Person Action


 


This game has a pretty in depth character creation better than most pay to play MMOs


 


So far the quests I have done so far are all party based instances with scaling difficulty that you select when accepting the mission.


 


Although this game is TBA in terms of official state side release the Japanese version is free to play, and there is an English patch that is mostly easy to set up with the PSO2 Tweaker (http://arks-layer.com/index.php). Most of the English speaking players are on the server Ship 02.

Considering that I am a former Phantasy Star Online player since Dreamcast/Gamecube and then BlueBurst for PC, I am a huge supporter of any  Phantasy Star Online based games.


 


Phantasy Star Universe and Blue Burst were disbanded from SEGA USA not many years ago, and there has been a lot of US players who joined JPN server to play this amazing game.  The third person shooting style makes it feel like you are playing Gears of War/Mass Effect. So whoever plays Ranger/Gunner and you like Mass Effect shooting style, then this is your game. 


 


Should there be any interest in doing any roleplaying community for this game, please let me know! I'd definitely roleplay with everyone else in Ship 02. I have like multiple characters, so I'd have to list them all out of course.

The gameplay is a lot faster and has more open world field to it, Xoza. If you had issues with that. There are more than just four levels of dungeons too. The missions are similar to Phantasy Star Universe / Portable than PSO 1.

So I'm still installing / updating the game. Apparently my SEGA ID went through alright, but it never gave me a screen to register it to PSO2. Gonna check after it installs and see if it'll let me in, otherwise I'll have to fight the CAPTCHA boss again to register it to the game.


 


Seriously. They had me at "Anime Assault Rifle guy"

I pretty-much gave up on trying to install it after the english patches refused to install, and the endless amount of japanese captchas I had to fight through just to activate PSO2 onto my account.


 


Game looks pretty badass, but it's almost not worth trying to go through that crap just to play it. That and it took like 3 friggin' days to install.

Did you go to this site?


(http://arks-layer.com/index.php)


 


Once you go there, download the tweaker. You don't download anything else. Then you start doing the installations as the tutorial says in the client. 


-DO NOT OPEN THE PSO2 OFFICIAL CLIENT. OR YOU WILL SCREW IT UP.- If you did, uninstall and delete the folder and reinstall it.


 


Odin didn't have issues, and neither did I. If you followed the tutorial, it should be all good, man.

Yep. Redid everything, got the patches set up...


 


Then I got back to trying to fight captchas to register my ID with PSO2.


 


After 2 hours of fighting it with that nearly-pointless translator, I nearly punched my laptop and went to smoke a cig. No game is good enough to warrant that type of frustration.

For those who want to play this game and you need help with registration, please PM me or speak with me. If you need to arrange it through online chat on  TS3, you can also set up a time with me as well.

How many of 'us' are playing it? I might get back to it if maybe we can form up team or a get some party runs through. I currently have a lv 21/18ish Fighter/Ranger.

Here is a video of us (Me, Nuzzy, and Aldotsk (with CrimsonNexys as the peanut gallery)) doing the new emergency quest (equivalent to an alert in PS2)
