Phantasy Star Beta Extended

Having fun with the beta for Phantasy Star? Sega's official site says it will be extended until 10/21. That's really good news due to Xbox Live being down for 24hrs & the demo coming out late last week

more bugs than expected? or just cruddy graphics?

Smellslikepie6344d ago

Hmm, now why exactly would they extend the beta if it was just "cruddy graphics". That has no effect on the beta. It'll be because of network issues, and bugs.

The main reason will be because it was delivered late and has been interrupted. Did you even read the article?

I'll be sure to keep playing even though I just picked up my copy of Splinter Cell DA!

(Too bad sarcasm is so hard to show in writing!)

I deleted this POS demo the same day I downloaded it!

SEGA just needs to do what they've needed to do for over a decade now. Release a TRUE Phantasy Star sequel. (which would be Phantasy Star 5 for those of you who are counting) Sega's Phantasy Star series was easily on par with Squares Final Fantasy series. Any RPG gamer in their 20's or older would LOVE to see PS5, not these lame MMO titles.

..I like the lame MMO titles. I would love a true Phantasy Star sequel and yes it would leave FF in the dust. No question about it. But the MMO version of Phantasy Star is a great way to breath new life in an old IP. It shows how versitle Sega is as a game publisher to switch up their styles with the times. Any Gamer in there 20's and older will recognize that a lot of Sega's ideas were ahead of the times. I say if you take the time to ignore the industry's prospective of what a next-gen game is and look at how deep and fun PSU is you'll immediately find yourself lost in an addictive game.

What's the point, I was unable to connect to the server; so I deleted the freaken demo. I pre-ordered this game, and chances are I will be cancelling it.

PoE: Deadfire, Unless you have a or PS5 or an SSD don't bother, loading times are insane. A minute and a half to go into a room to investigate a desk in an inn and then an additional 1 1/2 minutes to leave the room and then load to leave the inn???

And they never fixed it.

Definitely don’t start your Final Fantasy VII experience with Rebirth

Start at the beginning.

Well that's how it should be, but too many now buy sequels rather than starting at the beginning. That's why more sequels now have no mention of the previous game.

SDuck13h ago

I already used to do that back in the day. Bought both God of War 2 and FFXIII-2 without knowing anything about their prequels

Too many people need to be told this anymore... it really blows my mind.

GoodGuy0913h ago

Square didn't name it Remake 2 to maximize sales anyways lol

jznrpg12h ago

Yes play the first game it’s really good

SegaSaturn66912h ago

The first game was so bad i couldn't finish it. Endless fetching, nonsense additions, etc. Cool visualization of Midgar, but it's all filler.

Snookies1211h ago

"Endless fetching" - Don't do the side quests then, they do kind of suck.
"nonsense additions" - Most of the additions are actually very welcome to some parts that NEEDED fleshing out.
"it's all filler" - That isn't even the least bit true...

There were some lacking moments in Remake, and some odd choices at times I'll give you that. Trying to say the game was "bad" though is very far off the mark. It's a fantastic game.

RonnySins9h ago

Bad my a**. As for the fetching quests, don't do them. Simple.

NukeDaHippies8h ago

absolutely true. i coulda still accepted the less desirable stuff if the story didn't shit the bed in the last hour

Rebel_Scum11h ago

Yeah hard disagree on this. If you skip remake you wont miss out on anything. The story truly kicks off when you leave Midgar.

Snookies1211h ago

The heck do you mean? You will miss out on EVERYTHING if you skipped Remake, lol. Who the hell goes into a story driven series without playing the first part of it? There's absolutely no point in jumping on mid-way through something like that. You'd have no context for any characters or their relationships, nor their goals or plot of the series as a whole.

Rebel_Scum8h ago

Just watch the story catch up video in Rebirth. Remake just wasnt a good game.

To anyone new to FFVII I’d suggest the play the original then rebirth.
