No love for the Phantasy Star? </3 Well, this is the second iteration of Sega's Phantasy Star Online Series. Released in Japan on July 4th, 2012. And coming to the West, sometime 2013. If 2013 is too far away, you can can sign up to play on the Japanese servers. This game is also coming to PSVita, and Android/iOS platforms. It's Free-to-Play too.
Well, I was just wondering if anyone on PC playing/excited? I haven't seen a thread mentioning it, so I feel there isn't much Phantasy Star love on PC. I myself couldn't wait, and I had to sign up for the Japanese version. So far, its pretty fun, very reminiscent of the first Phantasy Star Online . It does get however a little bit grind-fest early on though, still fun though..
But, enough of my opinion. I'm wondering about PC's thought about this game?
I had the Gamecube version of this, shame it's only Episode 2 though instead of both of them. But this game back in the past took up nearly 2 years of my time, and I was playing offline. I may get this depending on how good the online base turns out, that and if I get a Vita. xD
I'm getting in. The biggest reason I'm getting a Vita is for Persona 4: The Golden, but this is a great incentive. Having said that, I might get the PC version. I've actually never played the PSO franchise before, but I have played PSU (online and offline) and had quite a bit of fun with it, so I'm excited for this title.
I love the Phantasy Star series, and after seeing a few gameplay videos for PSO2, i'm impressed with what they have done.
Most likely i'll be playing this on the PC, because I don't plan on getting a vita until the price drops. Besides, PSO2 looks like it will be best played on the PC because of the amount of freedom in terms of keyboard binding. (Assigning multiple skills to different number keys as opposed to however Sega decides to setup the controls on the vita)
I haven't heard of an official date for the beta yet or even it's release date, but hopefully it will be available sometime next year. If I have to wait two more years i'm moving to Japan.
