Phantasy Star Universe scans

Phantasy Star Universe scans

Phantasy Star Universe is back with these 2 pages scanned from Famitsu Weekly #919. I'll have a hard time not getting back to playing a Phantasy Star game for hours every day...

^Well it’s true. It’s a PS2 port. I’m still going to play it even if it doesn’t have the most amazing graphics.

Geez Jolli, why do you always get on the defensive about Japanese games, one would think you were part of the development crew on all these games.

What kind of game is this exactly? Is it an mmo? Because after wow I vowed NEVER to get into another mmo ever again it drains your life I tell ya.

Port or not it still looks a HELL of a lot better than samurai warriors I use to give this game shit about its graphics, but I've come to appreciate them after seeing crap like samurai warriors.

Can't wait..i loved PSO 1 and 2..and this looks like how PSO would look like with better graphics , bigger outdoors etc..can't wait for it.


PSO is a game where, you have the main single player mode..it could be split into say 4 sections each having its own boss until you beat the last boss in the final area and finish the game..you could do this alone..or go online..have upto 4 players on your team and do this quest..exploring each sections as a team..

Also on online mode..there was a section where you could pick up new quests and do them as a team, say you might have to find someone in a quest or rescue them..join your members and head to the section..battle monsters, level up..and do the mission...when you finish you get money, new weapons, items, armours, etc

You also had mags, pet like beings that floated around you which you could feed and look after..if done right they transform and even give you powers..strength up, shield, no stun or poison etc..you could even swap mags and give other members yours for theirs etc..

that's how the previous games were..i take it the new one would be similar and explore more..

I loved PSO..it was great fun to play and one of the best games around for it's time..i remember getting hooked to it on my dreamcast and then playing it on my PC

LOL how exactly are they to make a game like this... like Gears of War?

Oh, it's the first time I see the X360 box on a Japanese scan of PSU. Has Sega decided to release it on X360 in Japan as well alongside with PS2 and PC? I can't wait for this one.

I hope the servers aren't separated. Regionally and platform wise.

Hehe:)... But it would be nice to see some truly "next-gen" japanese title's. I mean, I really love the art-direction of these japanese games, but it would be awesome to see, what they can really do with the power of the 360.

Are you going to have to pay like a monthly-fee on this game?

More than likely yes.

Geez Jolli, why do you always get on the defensive about Japanese games.
Cause i like Japanese games.

Well Jolli, you're wrong. I'm really looking forward to this and will happily spend full price plus monthly fees to play it :D

One thing is sad thoght, that the Xbox 360 one is locked to it's own worls, the PC/PS2 ver and so on they all can play on the same servers but not on Xbox 360 :/ Wich kind of sucks very badly.

So not sure I'l get an Xbox 360 ver, as MMO's is all about social interaction.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (18 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (23 minutes ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (1 Hour ago)

  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (4 Hours ago)
