    Phantasy Star Online 2 is on XBOne

    I've wanted to play an official English version for a few years. I installed it last night but haven't played it yet.

    I'm worried it will suck.

    it has 5+years of content already, so it should be pretty good. The PC crossplay is not ready yet. If that takes too long, then I will likely skip out on it again. I played it on the Vita and PC for awhile with translation patches. the hiragana captcha was a bitch to get past, but smooth once you have an account made.

    I've always been interested in this game too, Im amazed its finally getting a US release. Always wanted to get into PSO1 but never did. As far as I know, PSO is mostly unrelated narrative-wise to the OG PS series. Is PSO2 a direct sequel to PSO? Or is it more it's own thing again, with similar items/naming conventions etc?

    I've played a couple days into it and it is really a lot to take in. I think it's definitely geared towards the PC players because some of the commands in the UI all have keyboard shortcuts instead of button combos.

    Some of the missions are odd and don't complete properly. I was being told to finish a Mag mission for a coulple or hours and I had already completed it.

    Another one tries to show you how to set auto chat messages and tells you what to type in. So you do, and it says to "activate" it but there's no activate button anywhere so the mission won't complete.

    I'm sure a lot of it is the learning curve but still. The action missions are pretty much like the DC version so that's pretty cool.

    I'm gonna keep at it and see how it goes.

    I played like 20 hours of the closed beta and 5 of the open and I'm still trying to wrap my head around all the menus. Game play is fun as hell though. The biggest bummer for me is the forgettable music.

    Played it with PSO2 Tweaker in the past. Classic, PSO style fun.

    Is the content up to date with the Japanese version? Also, did they go nuts with the microtransations?

    So weird that they only decided to release it in the US now, even though they had an English version (now decommissioned) years ago in some Asian countries.

    I love PSO on the Dreamcast. It was so far ahead of its time.... like most things on the Dreamcast. It might be time to pull that Xbox trigger...

    Its similar for sure. However its got jobs and plenty of other things. I'd also say learning how the flow of the game works is insanely hard. Theres so many client counters, quest orders etc. It takes times to learn and is vastly more complex than pso. Its also scaled way down from psu so its not nearly as big as psu and doesnt have as much to do. Its much more return to form and focuses on the grind again. Microtransaction kind break the balance though. A lot of the best stuff is easily earned with actual money. Or once you learn how to grind mesta you'll have way to good of gear for the levels you're supposed to be at.
