I’ve been playing PSO2 on and off for a few months on the Japanese client, now I am loving the game but unfortunately since I left japan in 2008 and haven’t been speaking or using the language in my daily life. My Japanese language skills are rusty and leave a bit to be desired. I think I’m seriously missing out on the story of the game as well as misinterpreting various parts.
The first time I played PSO2 in 2012 I remember looking up the release date and it was some vague answer like “2013” well guess what. Now it’s early 2013 and I’m still looking for a solid release date on the game.
I’m a power gamer. When it comes to a new release or a game I’m just breaking into. I live and breathe it, I devote every waking moment to the game until I make it my bitch.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to do that with PSO2, because currently I feel like it’s a waste of my time. I know once Phantasy Star Online 2 is released in the US I’ll completely abandon the JP version and never look back. Oh I’ll certainly remember my time with the Japanese client fondly. A quiet night, the two of us and a bottle of chardonnay. Wait she’s F2P so maybe that’s more like those sake shots you can buy at the convenience stores in Japan.
I’m also a bit of a social gamer, but with PSO2 another set back is most of my american friends don’t even know the game exists. I can’t enjoy the game with them, or prove to them how awesome I am at the game. Which seriously destroys the spirit of competition for me.
But seriously looking forward to this F2P gem once it’s released in the US. Looking for Phantasy Star Online 2 Release Date US? Why are you excited for it to come?
