My only problem is,

Why are the outfits for the characters so cool looking? That outfit on that pink haired chic is hot. Why doesnt PSO2 have cool outfits like that? Oh thats we got a jp community that would rather have bunny suits and pe uniforms instead. >>

It's likely that there will be a collaboration and that PSO2 will get those outfits.

But as towards why they are cool looking? Because the Nova is being made by another party and not Sega...........Expect to see more nicer and badass outfits in Nova than PSO2 early next year.

New darker mid-boss in the shape of a totem pole with the top being a buff body builder with claws. The main boss of seabed looks like a jellyfish with the top half of a chao with flowery arms and a frilly dress-like bottom.

It might be somewhat hard but can't tell from the trailers. Seeing that tunnels have lv 65 enemies, you could say the SVH Sanctum, Coast, Quarry and Seabed have Lvl 70+ enemies...?

Well they said when the enemies appear before us they will atk sooner rather than doing that I see you animation then atking we don't know how fast is "SOON" but this is what they said.

They also said that Electric Banther reskin will give you a ton of exp and have a very high chance of dropping rares. I believe I saw like 14k- or 142k exp when they killed I dunno.

They promised an "Enemy speed up", which, this being PSO2, is probably the extent of it (not counting massive stat buffs).

Either run a desktop capturing program when the video was being broadcast or rip the live and crop out that section after it finishes.

142k exp probably won't be much for getting through level 61 to 64.
Wouldn't be surprised if it was a very rare boss, too.

I dun think that anyone would use that as a means to lvl up anyway just if you get him that's 142exp you got lucky off of and something that would otherwise lessen the grind a little bit.

That's just my outlook on it.

Update looks quite interesting. I really like the new rare enemy (which reminds me, I have never even seen a mesetan yet lol) and that exp you get from it is very nice. Hopefully it isn't a super hard only spawn.

Seabed looks very pretty and the new enemies there look fun. It seems like seabed has three bosses? The jellysquid, the hydra and the totem bird darker.
At least we also now know that that one frame from the introduction trailer of episode 2 wasn't of a photoner but the jellysquid boss.

The next best thing I could imagine is that they are the same creatures as our photonblasts. Especially because of the new infection we are getting, that has the same design elements has photonblasts.

Photoner is what Luther, the head of ARKS Research Department ' Void Facilities', calls himself.

And PB creatures are probably a dead end attempt at creating an anti Darker soldier. Or/and the reason why ARKS created Casts instead of continuing to develop MAG approach.

seabed's theme makes my ears bleed, and not in the good way...maybe it fits better when you're actually in the level

the new enemies look obnoxious, but obnoxious can be good if handled properly (unlike ludda sorcerers teleporting every second attack)

In PSU and the original PSO, the end difficulties were usually just fast moving, hard hitting, high HP mobs...nothing really "new". It's not very "exciting", but at least I might have to try a bit...VH is a joke, and I was disappointed as a longtime PS player.

I second the new Cast parts & costumes though, they look great!

Looks like we're getting just Forest~Skyland SH at first.
I expected that we wouldn't get all SH areas at once, so no surprises here for me. I bet we'll get the remaining areas around 2 or 3 weeks after SH arrives or so, like how the VH launch was separated into 2 parts (part 1 was forest, caves, desert, and part 2 was tundra, tunnels, skyland).




Super Hard: Forest ~ F. Continent

Enemies are sped up, they’ll attack and move towards to the player more often.
Some of the Boss’s attack patterns have changed.
A new type of infection core will be introduced that can perform various actions.
Falz Arms can appear in regular fields.


New Infection Core

This new infection core has a life of its own.
There will be three different types: one that shoots lasers, one that heals, and one that counter attacks.

I'm sure it'll be 50 or 55.

I'm also sure that in a few months the subclass experience gain cap will be raised to the SH requirement, long after most of us have caught up with every class we care about, but still something to fall back on for the ones who have not.

I think that part of the video is about new skill tree skills and new latents.

In bumped, where the new skills and latents are mentioned, it has a couple of pictures from that part of the trailer:

Alltree resets are not skilltree resets. Skilltree resets require you to select an unequipped tree, but alltree resets wipe everything on your character without restriction.

Yeah its the Jellyfish Female bosses Music theme not the Seabed stage theme its self.

They always play the exploration bosses music in all there teaser trailer updates.

I will be honest, the changes they did make towards the update is a nice chnage might be a freash thing for ppl who have not been int he game longer than us to know the bs we went through.

None the less though god I want those Caseal parts and costume right the fuck now SH aint coming fast enough.

Crysteon
Sep 19, 2013, 10:57 AM
I honestly dont feel hyped at all for SH. The new infecton core thing looks more like a pew pew device that will annoy you during boss fights. I wonder if this whole speed and damage boost things will just be a carbon copy of what bosses already do on AQs, lol (which is pretty much likely).

Meduna's theme feels a bit awkward to me, since it has parts where instrumentation just doesnt fit as one would expect. I honestly expected something more KH-ish for her, because her design looks like something a KH game would throw you as enemy.

Also, lol at Madoka's collab (inb4 Phantasy Star Lolicon 2). Well, at least it's not another Hatsune Weeabu thingie this time, for which I'm grateful.

I'm also sure that in a few months the subclass experience gain cap will be raised to the SH requirement, long after most of us have caught up with every class we care about, but still something to fall back on for the ones who have not.
Yeah, that's sounding quite likely.

Alternatively, they would have to change the XP curve again to accommodate the large mass of players who don't have the playtime to get everything to 60, which could also happen - but they're more likely to just make the level req lower.



Also, lol at Madoka's collab (inb4 Phantasy Star Lolicon 2). Well, at least it's not another Hatsune Weeabu thingie this time, for which I'm grateful.

PSO2 JP ?????????2? ?????????? - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrDyi9tKR2E)

Finally, an upload with the enemy readout visible.

Ok, some information worth garnering (and some not):
1. Lots of infection points are targeted on enemies at the start - they're still weak to fire, ice, lightning, and presumably the other 3 elements which are cut off (just like normal infections). I had a theory they would change the weaknesses of certain enemies - this looks to be wrong, unfortunately. That would've been neat.
2. The vader fight shows ギルナッチ・コア selected at one point - Gilnatch Core. Yes, with the chi character, not the su character. I've said for a long time I wish vader had gilnatch adds to heal it, so this is right up my alley.
3. Most enemies look to be weak to all the same elements. Gwana fire & light, vader lightning, quartz dark, but a zaudan is selected and it looks like fire & lightning. It could just be the video quality making that light green look almost yellow.
4. Franka's COs are indeed 60+, but that scrollbar doesn't look like it leaves room for what we have right now. Could it be she's completely replaced with a new NPC with new COs, like how Xie is replaced with new Xies for each season? Each of the 3 selected COs turn in for 11k exp - akrupus, aginis, & digg items (25, 10, and 25 items respectively)
5. That lightning banban reskin is encountered in a free field, drops either a boxed rare or a non-10*, you can't make out if it's boxed or not
6. just guarding with an elder pain looks really silly, the part that guards isn't even covered with anything

NoiseHERO
Sep 19, 2013, 04:18 PM
So far it sounds like tower AI, but enemies have couple more gimmicks to their attacks (varder missile barrage)

And added extra RNG to infections.

At most might seem harder than tower at first because enemies pass 60. But you're asking to get buttfucked getting your hopes up for this game anymore.

Also not sure if I'm feeling it only going up to floating continent (obviously drip fed the rest later.)

An awarding anime from 2011, that had spin-off manga, games, and other media, this tie-in with Sega is set to match the third film coming out in Oct, 26, the serie grossed over 40 Billion yen in all sale through it's show and collab item

he show won the Television Award at the 16th Animation Kobe Awards, as well as 12 NewType Anime Awards and the Grand Prize for animation in the 2011 Japan Media Arts awards. It also won three Tokyo Anime Awards in the Television Category, Best Director and Best Screenplay, and the Selection Committee Special Prize award at the 2012 Licensing of the Year awards. Madoka Magica was awarded a Seiun Award for "Best Media" at the 2012 Japan Science Fiction Convention. In issue 103 of Neo, journalist Matt Kamen wrote, "With its...daring approach to a dated genre, Puella Magi Madoka Magica essentially does for magical girls what Neon Genesis Evangelion did for giant robots."

That's the only thing I've heard about it that made it sound interesting.

Then I remembered that I can hate animes that are "dark" too.

And it's probably still directed at grown men that masturbate to hand drawn little girls.

But you probably don't have to be one of those people to enjoy it. They're just gonna be the ones spending money on it.

Kion's view of the live stream yesterday:

[spoiler-box]http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z88/kion_01/DSC00753_zpseb7dd436.jpg
[/spoiler-box]

Didn't get a chance to talk to Sakai, but I don't think that matters I would have got the same response. I went over to the booth where they had all the PC's for Pso2 setup and asked if I could talk to a representative.

I asked him if there was any information on what was happening with the international release. They announced it and there has been absolutely no information about the release beyond that and yet there's been countless updates for the Japanese end. He replied that it's the companies decision, and he didn't know anything anything and even if he did, it's the company's decision which he doesn't have authority for.

I followed up, I've been looking for some way to get in contact with Sega about this, but there's no phone number listed, just an address, even if you go to the address you need an appointment in the first place, and no email address. So what's going on here.

Here's the response, they actually do take a look at all of the input and support forms that come in. They have a daily report summarizing the opinions of everything coming in, and for special cases where something needs to be looked at by someone with the required decision making power, it actually does get passed along. Sakai even specifically said that the reason they were making Phantasy Star Nova was, "because of the amount of requests we received for an offline story based pso2".

The english patch is pretty much 100% complete, so any official release is looking less and less important everyday. It may not get any response, but posting on it might help to motivate them? [For the love of god, only post mostly positive requests in Japanese]

After that I went over to the station for the press. And asked for a statement for the English release. Same response, "i don't know/we can't announce anything,". I asked her if she could pass the message along that, "everyone really wants to know what the fuck is going on". We'll see how that goes (probably no where).

And other pics:

Don't overreact over nothing. Sakai didn't wake up one day and realize that his sci-fi dressup simulator lacks references to an award-winning deconstruction of the Magical Girl Genre. It was little girls, fetish clothes, cute mascots and it being recognizable to ~80% of the players of PSO2 that let it have an honor of being inserted into PSO2's lottery tickets. It having a mature story for mature gamers such as ourselves played a very little role, even if it was one of the reasons why the anime got popular in the first place.

[spoiler-box]
A lot of people in this thread seem to be missing the link between Madoka Magika and Pso2 in this thread. It's a little more in depth than just magical loli's. Pso2 has a singular story line, where anything that changes that timeline affects everything in the timeline itself. We have a matterboard where the player is able to visit certain predicted events at certain times, and the player is then able to change the timeline in a story event based on the information that was gained before hand.

Up until now it almost seemed like there were limited rules to going back in time. The characters when left or right, but these changes too often seemed of little or no consequence depending on the effect. In episode 2 the changes start becoming more extreme where the character goes back to chapter 8 with the intention of literally changing history.

The character goes back in time to save Zeno during his fight with Dark Falz, and the player, Maria and Sara are able to fight Elder to the last of his strength. Right when Maria is about to land the ending blow, Persona steps in to stop her. The only way Persona would know to be there at that point in time would be for Persona to know in advance where and when something would happen. Zeno is saved and trained by Maria to become a stronger hunter further indicating more events down the line before Zeno's eventual transformation into Persona.

Looking at the data for the next chapters as well, it seems that the character then goes back into chapter 8 again to save Ulc this time, and further on back into chapter 3. Also the events with the rampaging dragon in chapter 9, the break out of the Chrome dragon supposedly coincides with the darker out break on Naberius during your first training mission, which, btw this game is going might have been a result caused by your yourself. And Zeno even says he recognizes you in the first place, indicating that you've changed events in the timeline before even joining Arks, contributing to the current situation.

In these later chapters, what we quickly find is a very tightly woven game where small events have far echoing consequences, and the possibility that the current timeline isn't natural, but the results of lots of events being manipulated and stacked on top of each other. What we find from the is Persona, who while appears to be a bad guy is very specifically trying to impede the player at every possible turn.

-Trying to attack you on Naberius while you're still a rookie
-Trying to find the Clarrisa so Falz can't be unsealed
-Stopping Maria from killing Elder

In the center of everything we have Xion, or who I should possibly refer to as Qyube from Madoka Magika. Qyube offers madoka the option of becoming a Magical Girl without ever telling her the consequences of doing so, and spends the whole series trying to take advantage of her for his own gains which he never reveals. Likewise, Xion has the player use the matterboard to change the future. Except we have no idea of what she actually wants us to change, and no insurance that her intentions are good.

In the scene with Afin after the Arks Battle Tournament where Afin meets his sister, Falz Apprentice, she makes a small off hand comment that Falz only attack Arks because Arks attack Falz. And from what we've seen as well, Arks is a military organization who's goal is to destroy Darkers, except that by using photon weapons, they actually draw more Darkers in the process. And if Darkers are a problem for the whole universe, then why do Arks feel compelled to try and eliminate them more than any other race? And we'v also seen the methods that Arks uses to get more powerful, by experimenting on humans to create dumans and other races for their own benefit.

So we have no insurance that Arks are actually the good guys, or the Xion or Shao are actively trying to help the main character, or what their ultimate goal is otherwise.

The one that appeared at the beginning of the trailer is not a new character, she appears in a couple of cutscenes.

[spoiler-box]One in the Dark Falz Elder arena (after Matterboard 8 is complete), and one in Chapter EX Afin route.[/spoiler-box]

Are they finally making an area that's just going to be endless fights? Or is that just gonna be an EMQ we'll see once a day.

if it's the former then it could've come 3 months sooner. <_<

It's a little more in depth than just magical loli's.

Everything is a little more in-depth than just magical lolis.

Sadly, humans are shallow creatures by nature.
They enjoy generalizing, associating via vague relationship, jumping to conclusions, making wild assumptions and harshly judging things they don't care to know anything about yet act as if they are expert authorities on.

They call it "free speech" and their "opinion", and that makes them feel proud and confident.
They are incapable of appreciating anything for its merits and strive only to make themselves feel good. "Ignorance is bliss".

Bottom line is, don't bother wasting time listening or reacting to those people.
After all, they didn't care enough to spend time researching anything before making judgments and expressing close-minded "opinions".
If they want to blind themselves, it's their loss. Just don't turn it into our loss as well.

What made you think that?

The girl is just a face, a body, a vessel. It has basically zero relation with the entity that has taken it over.

It's not like Elder looks anything at all like Gettemhart, either.

Relating archetypes. You cant simply think a girl-looking thing should transform into a tough and nasty looking monster, unless you really want to defy her looks and cause all kind of reactions from your fandom with it. Yeah, Falz took her as a vessel or way to manifest himself physically, but we fall on the same issue: respect for semantics and symbolisms in general.

I wouldnt be surprised if Sega decided to turn her into a spider (resembling a black widow), though.

NoiseHERO
Sep 22, 2013, 03:21 AM
Wouldn't a female shaped falz type monster be more interesting anyway? >_>

The problem's clearly not about gender equality/uniqueness regardless of gender- Zyru just likes mixing genders. :D

Fuck. I felt like crying throughout the whole trailer. That was the most amazing update tease I've ever seen for this game. The CGI, the music, everything was just so, so, so amazing and perfect. I can't fukken wait. ;___;
Also, Apprentice is the master of the insect(!)-type Darkers - of course she would turn into something nasty. Duh.

I think that "boss" in the CGI is actually those new insect-type darkers. I imagine Apprentice would be similar to Hunar, but probably more "Force" like.

I thought about that too. They do look similar, especially since both share those huge red orbs on top of their back antennas.
And I also just relaized that doing this on SH when nobody has a clue what to do at first will be hilariously fun, and hopefully just as deadly.

Sep 22, 2013, 04:06 AM
I think it is a new boss, even though the quality is not so good of the video you can see differences between the two. First being that the CGI one has a giant horn on his head and his jaw seems to be different. He also has four arms, two giant ones on his back and two normal ones.

It's locked under the RNG. You'll rarely go there if you choose to do an Advance quest. (Sega if you take this seriously, I will fucking shit on your tits.)

I hope the new quest is a two-part deal with the Darker invasion followed by a Dark Falz Apprentice fight.

I've been wanting another large-scale boss fight, even if it's not very difficult (As Dark Falz Elder was).

Railkune
Sep 22, 2013, 08:32 AM
I could definitely see us having to defending a massive large scale zone from an endless slew of Darkers for a set period of time, and after that we'd have to take down more of them accompanied by the big boss this time. Heck, maybe even Apprentice? Seems like it could be cool anyways.

PLOT TWIST!

Because it says meseta will be picked up automatically watch you have to run over the money for it to pick it up.

I can see this happening I would love it picked up by its self while I was still exit bursting or killing a Boss.

I would prefer it pick up money automatically without me having to go out my way to rush over there, like some mmo's it actually did that money was already there in you inventory,no need to walk over it,same for items.

That is pretty much was I was expecting but meeh.

The meseta octahedron is too iconic. They'd never completely abandon it.

Yes but the difference is that you don't even have to touch the mob for full exp/drops, all you could actually do is just stand there and let others kill the mobs and get the exp/drops (leeching).

Edit:

LOL Late to the party and just saw the trailer Ezo posted.

Dam, December get here already!!!!

Seems like the next two major updates are promising and that Sega finally began to get the buts off of the chair.

P.S.: I swear to god that Sega better release Apprentice's darker outfit into the AC scratch.
