Thread: My PSO Journey

  1. #1

    Default My PSO Journey

    Hey all,

    About 13 years ago, I saved up $50.00 for a brand-new copy of Phantasy Star Online: Episodes 1&2 Plus. I proceeded to spend an obscene amount of time item hunting, mag raising, and character re-creating across 3 or so years. The game spread to many of my friends, and we spent many hours huddled together around insufficient quarter-screens.

    Fast forward 10 years later, I’ve basically forgotten about PSO and moved on to other games and hobbies. Last week, I randomly had a dream I obtained the famed “Sealed-J Sword”, an item I was obsessed with obtaining in my youth. I awoke with newfound determination: I was to fulfill my childhood mission of finding, arguably, PSO’s most powerful and scarce weapon.

    The next day, I booted up my game to find my latest character still intact: a level 115 HUmar sporting a Skyly section ID and fully developed mag. I’m super happy to rediscover this amazing gem of a game, and I hope to have many fun interactions with fellow fans

    That’s my PSO story! Feel free to post about your love for PSO, or how you managed to (re)discover this wonderful game.

    My story starts back on the Dreamcast. The trailer video came on one of my demo disks. The game looked so amazing that when version one came out, I ran to the video store to rent it. I was only level 3 or 4 when I hopped online and right away invited to a party to kill the dragon. The party leader had a teleport ready for the rest of us. Not one member was over level 10 and I am pretty sure three of us was not even over level 5. The dragon wiped us all out within seconds. I didn't really get to play it much until I got my hands on V2. Now I had to run back to the video store to get the game disk serial number and ID so I could fire up V2. Then after the DC died off, I moved over to PSOX until those servers shut down. Logged on to BB until it shut down. Suffered through several private server shut downs and PSU 360 until it shut down. Finally bringing me to PSO2, until it shuts down. It's been a long voyage but well worth it.
