Oh shi-

So I’m watching Sega’s TGS live stream which currently is just playing trailers for their upcoming games while no press conference is going on. I was just happily playing it in the background as I catch up on some work while minding my own business.

Suddenly I head something that fills me with nostalgia and fond memories. Pioneer 2, Spread Needles, Rappys and beautiful Caves 3 come flooding back; It’s the main (vocal) theme of the original Phantasy Star Online! What the?

I quickly Alt-Tab to the stream and what do I see? Phantasy Star Online, the original, what is this? Then it shows PSOv2 and proceeds to go though each game in order of release right up to the very newest announced game, Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity. I’m excited about the game so I continued watching but that wasn’t all. Right at the end… My mind was blown.

Phantasy Star Online 2
Release: 2011
Known system: PC

[More info as it comes]

Saw this over at GAF posted about 10 min ago, they are going into epileptic seizures right now. Didn't see a thread over here about it.

Big news?

    I don't like the way the series headed after ep2 but it's certainly exciting news.

    Agreed. I am still hopeful, but PSO on the Dreamcast (and Gamecube) were really the highlight of the series for me.

    Is this an actual new game or is it Phantasy Star Online + Extra New Content? Hopefully the former. And hopefully it's more, uh, fun.

    Also, fuck Sega, stop ruining everything. Make Phantasy Star V.

    oh god

    don't suck don't suck don't suck

    Would be interesting to see a PSO that was completely designed from the ground-up as a computer game, not a ported console game...

    PSO is my crack, though. Bought a Broadband adapter for my GameCube so I could play it way-back-when.

    I think they could finally do another good console PSO(U), because PSP2 is just so good. It's all I ever wanted for a handheld PSO. Unfortunately I know that I won't be getting this because it's PC and I don't play anything on PC. I'm stuck with my laptop anyway and there's no chance it'll be able to run this.

    PSO was on the original Xbox. PSU was 360.

    And yes I'm excited for this. I really hope they keep the photon arts and HEAVILY revamp the crafting system (i.e. not the ONLY way to get items).

    PSP2 on the PSP is really good, damn good. It the best thing since the original PSO imo. If any of you are wanting to play I recommend picking it up.

    Hell yeah

    I don't know what it is about PSO, but I lost hours to that game, and still never beat it

    If they can make this not suck like Phantasy Star Universe, I'm game

    And it sounds like they're taking this seriously, since it's PSO2 and not PSO: lame subtitle

    Someone needs to make a parody trailer in the style of the Duke Nukem Trilogy one using the logo.

    I'm glad they went PC only. Not so much for the PC bit, but I'm sure the botched cross platform attempt is a big part of what left PSU to be so awful.

    I lost far too many hours to Blue Burst, high hopes for this. Probably higher than they should be with the complete absence of information.

    I'm really weary of the fact that they've only said it's coming to the PC. I tried BB on the PC and it was just...eh.

    All my PSO good times were on the DC. I did some on the Gamecube too but the DC was where it was at.

    They really need to put PSO out on XBLA.

    Either way I'm tentatively excited about this.

    Best announcement of TGS.

    I'm fine with it being PC only for now... I'm sure Sega will make it controller compatible, at least that is my extreme hope.

    Lets hope we get some gameplay and screenshots soon.

    Seriously, just four people all huddled round a tiny screen.

    I would be amazed if this isn't for the consoles as well. Pretty psyched for this as long as it is an actual follow up to PSO. I tried universe and it didn't grab me at all.
    Spoiler:

    Sounds like more of the same, with an autogeneration feature for dungeons. Taking the copy paste enviroments they had and running with it.

    If its still a heavily instanced based loot generator and they decide to do their hunter pass bullshit im gonna have to sit this one out. I was silly enough to pay 10.99(?) when i played it on the GCN, but that was also 6+ years ago and my free time now is somewhat limited.

    Still super excited though, cant even imagine how many hours were logged on my lvl 167 HuMar.

    I'm pretty positive they'll do the hunter's license thing. PSP2 is free and they still managed to work it in, albeit for anti-piracy. The only game that hasn't had that at all was PS0. They still charge for PSU and the only version that even has servers now is the 360 version.

    Ladies and gents, early this morning over in Japan there was an event that led up to... the showing of a gameplay trailer and some screenshots for PSO2! All alpha of course.

    Check out the screenshots here

    A few previews for the thread
    Spoiler:

    And for a low quality version of the trailer

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7uCoa3mJ7M

    Needless to say, all of my dicks right now. Happy easter, PSO fans. The Rappies have heeded our call.

    One of my favorite things? Ranger gameplay is drastically different from the other two classes. Rangers play a Third Person Shooter-RPG hybrid. While the Hunters get the real deal hack n' slash. Not much of anything on the FO characters yet, but I can imagine they will have something nice for them as well.

    EDIT: Oh god more info coming in, some translated info from Andriasang
    The video also mentioned a few key words and phrases:

    Is there adventure in today's RPGs?
    Always, to a new field. Random field.
    Original Combos
    TPS style
    Jump Action
    Hybrid Custom Action
    It gives you a foreboding feeling -- seamless weather.
    Something will happen every time!? Interrupt event
    Aiming for "Endless Advneture."
    The adventure without end, once again.

    Cautiously optimistic. Nice simplistic UI, though I hope mods/customization are allowed.
    Graphics aren't terrible per say, but they could be a hell of a lot better for a PC game.
    Hope the gameplay's good.

    Yay, Rangers can move while shooting, you can jump, sweet combo attacks, "interrupt events" (probably just random dynamic objectives) and that sweet sweet PSO like music <3

    However, still need to see my FOnewm back in action. I remember having him on my first run on PSO GC, the AoE fire attack reaped in so many EXP points that when the mem card got accidentally wiped my cousins who played with me in splitscreen (thank the lord for splitscreen) wisened up and got half-magic chars themselves :lol:
