The first 10 minutes : Demo of Phantasy Star Universe

The first 10 minutes : Demo of Phantasy Star Universe

As you certainly know already, a demo of Phantasy Star Universe is available for a limited time on the Marketplace right now. Of course I HAD to do a video of this, and a few people from the french forum and even demi from angry-gamer joined me to record it. Another video from the very colorful planet level should follow tomorrow.
Update : Added the second video, showing the most interesting parts of 2 other missions. Much nicer looking, and also much more difficult.

Why thank god you didn't download this ?

It's actually a lot of fun.

Looks like a lame port, i mean, a little bump mapping would've helped, and don't see much improvement from PSO, which was awesome :

I'll wait for Huxley.

i have played everquest2 for about 2 years and i was under impresion this was similar,when i got on the game it was the worst online game ever,its got the interactions of zelda on the NES,which was good at the time but now in next gen ,the speech and everything was just painfully ugly,and a monthly fee to play it OUCH.
this is another attemp to get pc gamers over to console ,if they any sense they will be sticking to pc for this genre

Was it just me, or was the music GODAWFUL?
Commented on 2006-10-14 18:53:42
@ MyManD: I just turned the music volume in-game all the way off.

I really enjoyed it, and was actually impressed by the graphics. They weren't good in regards to other Xbox 360 games, but I went in with pretty low expectations after seeing some screenshots of the game. The bloom and depth-of-field were actually pretty nice. This video, surprisingly, doesn't do the game justice. It's much brighter and more vibrant when you're playing. Ah well. Graphics aside, it's a great game, just like I expected it to be. A few little quirks here and there, but it sure as hell sold me.

Don't know why but that music reminds me to StarCrafts soundtrack. I am going to listen some StarCraft musics next time I play this :)

I like really much this game. Game is better and better more you play it. Monthly fee is the only thing that prevents me to buy this :/

Nice to get some other planet videos too becouse that first place is quite boring.

After playing, damn this game sucked :(. And I miss the anti-aliasing in this game, (at least.. it looks bad on my cute little 1024x768 LCD screen -- wants a widescreen lcd)
Commented on 2006-10-14 22:25:23
aww the memories and number of hrs i put into Phantasy star online!

that video was great! just brought back all the memories. Really loved PSO, looking forward to this game
Commented on 2006-10-14 22:45:23
At least many people like the game.

and i think i should wait the game really come out then say it's good or not.
Commented on 2006-10-14 22:49:47
Played it was fun but really no step up from PSO at all, just more of the same again. Not worth the monthly sub but a nice fun beta game to play a little.

excuse me. the large majority of gamers out there believe that zelda OoT is the greatest videogame in all of videogame history to this date. interactions of zelda on the nes? hmm interesting. NOT. i played pso v1 and 2 on dreamcast for thousands of hours. this game is awesome. it has a lot of depth once you get into it. the boss battles are pretty much the greatest thing you can do online in a videogame.

i played EQ2 for a year or so and that game sucked. i think i played in one group by the time i hit level 28. what a joke of a game. yeah it looks great on my insane pc at max settings, but so what.

you sound like one of the high and mighty pc idiots that have never played an n64 a day in their life. get bent.

---------------------------------------------------

i would get this pso if it had no monthly fee.
Commented on 2006-10-14 23:33:45
Is this being released simultaneously for the Dreamcast?
Commented on 2006-10-15 00:25:09
After seeing this video I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything remotely interesting.

Trust me your not, there's no marked improvment at all this is jsut PSO with a few bells and whisles on it no major improvment morel ike tacked onto the main 1 player game.

I played the demo on XBLM, it's terrible in my opinion.
Commented on 2006-10-15 01:57:45
Get WoW problem solved.
Commented on 2006-10-15 02:05:20
To be honest the only thing I don't like about this game so far is the terrible environment you start out in... It really helped PSO that you started on a nice looking forest planet. This isn't that important though since I know there are other planets in PSU.

I think I would buy this game if it was priced competitively and didn't have a monthly fee… That being said, I will not even consider buying this for 10 dollars a month. Games like WoW can charge 14 a month because they just offer a TON of stuff to do and PSU just isn't one of those games.
Commented on 2006-10-15 02:59:27
Folks, to be fair, there IS a single player game this time around, let's not forget that.

That said, I don't think I care to pay monthly for what is essentially Diablo online, except more limited.

What I'll probably end up doing is renting it from gamefly for a month and using up the free trial, and then picking it up in the bargain bin for 6 bucks in a year or so to finish up single player.

About the game

    aphex187 Wow noway i'll be buying CoD Remaster anytime soon, just over 200 people were playing it on PC in the last 24 hours :/ Rest of the maps are coming including Winter crash :( (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (6 Hours ago)
