      So far I'm really enjoying this game. When I'm in front of my PC I want a game that's deep and it can be time consuming as long as I'm having fun, but I like how PSP is a streamlined version of it's big brother. The story is very 'meh' and it has what I call "Fire Emblemitis"...which is way too much talking with still characters on screen. I love Fire Emblem, but I'm not a fan of all the talking. Then again the online Phantasy Star games always have a weak story (I put about 10 hrs. into the story mode of PSU and that's all I could stomach)... it's the gameplay, weapons/armor, and building your character up that I love about PSO/PSU. Oh, I forgot just how annoying Hyuga is.

      Winning a copy would be cool, but having a PSP to play it on would be even cooler. XD

      what's disappointing is its one of those games that uses a reduced colour palette.. guess that's a way of making games run a little faster.. but hell they could have run it in full colour with the cpu at full speed, id rather have 2 hours life and a nice clear picture at 333MHz than 2 hours and 30 minutes with that damn grainy fuzzy picture at 222MHz or 266MHz or what ever they used... at least it only looks like that during game play, in shops and menus and cut scenes its in 24bit colour.. still damn annoying.. and i have a psp 1000 from dec 2004, dunno what newer models are like but mines got one blury ass screen, must have a really bad latency cause moving around in most games leaves a big blury trail lol.. *sigh* and as someone else said the story is meh... lotta talking but the story is pretty empty so.. its kinda boring..
