Phantasy Star Online 2 is Real, PC-Only

Tokyo Game Show hasn't been a disappointment, and here is another big news item that should get a passionate group of fans excited. Sega has announced that they will be developing Phantasy Star Online 2. Phantasy Star Online was the big game that really executed on the promise of the Dreamcast's built in modem, it was an online RPG that allowed four players to team up and go space-dungeon (or SPdungeon) crawling and loot-whoring.  In the video above we see a lot of footage from Phantasy Star Portable 2 before they show the big announcement that PSO2 is a real thing. Some with fuzzier memories may believe that Sega already released a PSO2, but that was actually Phantasy Star Online Episode 2, and not a true sequel.  Read More

It's all so delightful ridiculous, how can anyone resist the allure? Read More
