Ah ha! Details on Voice Operation!
*Two players only!*
The quest is administered by Nol Rinale. She wants you to use their latest communication simulator: RVS. This takes place in VR Temple.
There are six stages to RVS, each divided into two phases. The goal for each phase is the same: collect all four capsules within the time limit. One player takes the role as Operator, the other as Hunter. At the completion of Phase One, the users switch roles for Phase Two. It is up to the Operator, using Voice Chat only (you don't have access to anything as Operator, not the software keyboard, not anything) to guide the Hunter through the mazes. (As Operator, move the camera with the Directional Pad. Hunter controls are normal.)
Collect the capsules. As you progress through the stages new perils are added--moving capsules, ice bullets which freeze you and penalize you thirty seconds, fire bullets which cause you to drop capsules, and complete and total darkness to the hunter.
At the completion of each stage, points are rewarded, up to a maximum of 100 for each stage. At the end of the quest, you are given a rank. I walked away with a B Rank and my prize was a Trimate. It's safe enough to believe that the better your rank, the better your prize.
Hah... by the way, the quest is set to the Chu Chu Rocket music, quite appropriately. You feel like a rat in a maze, really, lol
The RVS consoles. Note that my partner is on the other side with his own.
The Operator's perspective.
The Hunter's perspective.
Being penalized for touching an ice bullet.
Egh... the second or so voice chat delay really complicated that quest! lol
I wonder what the top prize is?
