Pixels or Death's Chris Leddy sings the praises of the Phantasy Star Online 2 open beta:
"PSO2 breaks these boring MMO tropes; Oh you have to travel here? Nah fuck that, here’s a stage, get yo’ party and go for it. Oh you have to collect 50 feathers? Nah bro, how about some fun quests instead. Oh you want a story in a sci-fi setti–Oh well okay, they might not have have seen BioWare actually releasing The Old Republic within the next decade, but still – there’s a story in there too. And the hack and slash gameplay? Oh my! Some of the best."
