Been waiting for a quick look. Could not try the beta unfortunately.

THIS WILL SAVE THE VITA!!

I totally saw someone named Tuna just now and was like "huh, what if that's actually GB making a quick look?"

You did name yourself Tuna on ship 2, right? Either way, time to actually watch the QL. XD

I don't have any bumpers. What do I press to get into over-the-shoulder combat mode?

This looks great. Any chance we could get this for the TNT?

Posted by Nephrahim

Looks pretty alright. Not going to play a Japanesse beta to check it out, but if it comes to the state it might be worth a look.

The most mind blowing thing besides jumping you can chop down trees now.

Posted by Robaota

Fine, I'll buy it.

Posted by tescovee

fuck yeah! a new weird thing for o obsess about! Sorry skylanders and trackmania you are outtah hear!

Posted by CaLe

Is it because I never played an Phantasy Star before that I find this game so dull? Like, it's an MMO, and there are already plenty of those. Many better than this.

Posted by Nightriff

Looks pretty awesome and I hate MMOs, hope I get a chance to play it in english

Why haven't they played in the Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Events yet?

I thought either Ryan or Jeff was really looking forward to GW2.

Posted by cassus

This looks horrible..

Posted by Petiew

"I got myself a paperclip" and Saber all at once? I need to play this for the symbol chat alone.

From what I remember Jeff played the beta but didn't like it because it was an MMO. I don't know about Ryan though. I agree that we need some coverage of Guild Wars 2. I'm guessing that they won't start making videos for Guild Wars 2 until it becomes an Open Beta and not just for people who preordered.

I loved PSO1 & 2 on the GameCube, and this looks really slick. Hopefully someone writes an English patch for the client soon, as Sega doesn't seem to be in much of a rush, as I'd really like to play this, but don't want to suffer with the menus.

Posted by Nihilius

@insane_shadowblade85: As far as I know the game is not going to be in an open beta, just the BWEs before launch. But yeah I don't understand how Jeff can play PSO but not GW2, seems a bit weird but it's his opinion. I agree, we need some GW2 coverage over here in GB land. :)

Oh man look at that skybox! It's like Daytona all over again.

I want :(

Japanese captcha sucks, but you can do it. Open up the Wikipedia article for katakana or something, and just copy paste the symbols that you see on the captcha.

@Nihilius Jeff has sunk a loooooooot of hours into PSO in the past. Part of it is the lure of nostalgia. And he enjoyed Star Trek Online! The GB community has a LincolnCast for GW2 coverage from BWE.

Uh, did you guys see the top of the front page? PSO2 TNT?

Posted by EchoEcho

Oh snap, Mr. Popo eyes at 7:34.

Posted by Vorbis

I'm willing to lose a year or two of my life, do the right thing SEGA.

Posted by StrikeALight

I'm suprised. I had no idea Jeff was way into PSO, and am thrilled that PSO2 is getting the coverage on this site.

I've been playing a little bit of the beta, and while I was completely addicted to the original, this seems a little goofier than I remembered. Anyway, cannot wait for the TNT this week!

Posted by vorpalparasite

I would definitely give that game a try once it's in english.

Posted by Char12

Was that Saber at 7.20?

Posted by Codeacious

Oh fuck this looks weird. But I'm not crazy enough to download and try to play a Japanese game...

It said "Excalibur", so yeah, it was.

Posted by Vaancor

As a man who spent way to many hours in PSO V1 and 2, S Ranked Phantasy Star Universe and left it insanely frustrated, I'm very much looking forward to an english release. Hearing it's not pay-to-play or pay-to-win and seeing the improved controls clears a lot of the problems I had with the Phantasy Star series after 1.

Also helps that customizable images/emoticons are back. Was rather disappointed I couldn't make talking Dreamcasts, Gamecubes, and Xboxs in PSU.

From playing the Japanese beta it felt like they hadn't really noticed the last ten years of video games. If you really liked the older games then maybe you will be happy but they aren't majorly changing the formula. It felt out of date to me.

Posted by Char12

@AlexanderSheen: Ahh, didn't notice that, just saw the face.

Posted by Kucheeky

I might take a break from WoW for this game. Looks refreshing.

Actually an mmo-esque game with action-based combat instead off WoW-styled combat is pretty much the trend right now for the entire genre.

Does EVERY discussion about MMOs always have to end up talking about other MMOs? I hated when GW2 poped up every other topic in ToR and I don't see it as great here.

If Guild wars 2 is great we will all love it, but hey, if this is fun it can be fun too.

Also, <3 Saber.
