Considering that I have gotten into the PSO2 Alpha 2, I thought it would be right to make a thread to share my images, media and anything else I find along with my thoughts and such.

The email for people getting in says that the Alpha actually starts this month, will be announced later this week.

Did anyone else in Sega Retro get in?

No, but consider me hooked on this topic in great interest. As much fun as it is playing PSO, the whole only (technically) having three episodes to play through thing is letting the game's age begin showing regrettably.

I just hope it doesn't leave a bad taste like PSU did. PSU is largely why I didn't look into the Portable series and 0, despite all the praise they were getting.

I didn't even know there was going to be a private alpha. At least there is no NDA, so I'm excited to see how it looks and to hear some feedback.

The only thing I'm kind of hoping for though is a console port because I know that's the only way I could get some of my friends to join in.

Alpha 2 Test 1 starts on the 27th January 16:00 (Tokyo Time) - 23:00

I'll be recording parts and printscreening as much as possible, will post YouTube links or video links afterwards.

Nice, I'm excited! Tell us everything you can.

I really hope this game comes out in English.

Share as much as you can, dude. I've loved PSO ep1 and 2, and the PSU stuff. I 'like' PSZero, but that's by-the-by. Just tell me fucking EVERYTHING. Thanks. ;)

Will be uploading videos, but not too sure on how many they'll be. I'll probably cut down gameplay so that it isn't boring. I will have an entire video of my character creation though. :)

If anyone is interested, I'm running an IRC channel around PSO2 that has 20 or so people in.

I'd recommend checking out the PSO-World thread for information:

Game facts and opinions:
Posted Image
Character creator is AMAZING.
Combat is extremely fresh, focuses around building combos through technics.
For once a PHANTASY STAR game that has a KEYBOARD+MOUSE setup (which is pretty equal to controller)

Posted Image
Lobbies are like a combination of Pioneer 2 and the lobbies from PSO. All of the crappy gigantic, empty PSU cities have been removed and replaced with something that's far more easier to navigate.
Skills are now upgraded by discs, pretty good change to go back to.
The loot you see is all to yourself, stopping loot races and arguments.
You get experience if you're close to the enemies, not if you've hit them or not. A good change I think and the range is just the right size.

These screenshots are from “Phantasy Star Online 2 Alpha Test 2″, since this game is currently under development, the contents may not reflect the final version. Additionally, such contents may be improved upon in the future. Phantasy Star Online 2 Official Site http://pso2.jp/

I was watching someone stream the game on Twitch yesterday. I cracked up when I saw the whole chat erupt into a frenzy at the sight of a red item box drop.

"CHECK WHAT RARE IT IS!"
"inb4photondrop"
"DB Saber! FFFFFUUUUU"

...he never checked what it was. :(

Rares are far more common in this game, found one on the first time we went crazy. If it's the stream I'm thinking of, I was going to be a part of it but my controller messed up for long enough for my brother to decode the font used on buildings. After raging over it I just decided to go with keyboard+mouse instead, maybe it's because it's a game built for PC because it works really well.

Awww, but I fucking love Dagora City on Maotoob. Although that might just be hanging around taking in the music, I don't know. Good to hear they're easily navigable though; althought the only hub I ever disliked was PSO:ep2 - and I warmed to even that one eventually.

Sounds and looks mighty good. Don't suppose I could request more pics of what's possible with the character creator?

I'll take some more pictures during the test later tonight (2am my time) because I honestly didn't think of taking any pictures in character creator. :(

Is the combat still click and roll of the dice, or do you actually have to connect your attacks on the enemy?

To do successful combos as a hunter, you actually have to connect your attacks on the enemies, especially if you want to do well.
