    If this is just an exception, I'm gonna be disappointed.
    Except that this is not "crazy shit."

    This is settling into the lukewarm, no-risk theme of generic teenage girls in what is, for all intents and purposes, modern Japan. Gee, because we've never fucking seen that before.

    Need I remind you that we just got off the climax of a story with evil space gods and time travel over multiple worlds. THAT is Phantasy Star. That has always been Phantasy Star, since 1987. This? This is the same dull as a brick setting I've seen in anime after anime over the past decade, with paint-by-numbers characters.

    But let's be real: We should all know why this is happening. This is tying the game into that god-awful looking anime spin-off, a spin-off that only exists as it does because Sword Art Online got popular, and SEGA is nothing if not desperate to chase 30 meters behind the biggest trend. Fuck the lore, fuck integrity, fuck any semblance of logical story progression, gotta go fast if you're gonna chase that money.

    Jump that shark. Jump it hard.

    OP here. This really blew up @[email protected]

    AkuTenshiiZero: You are an excellent writer and you're very good at illustrating and defending your points. I feel like you took the words right out of my mind and in a manner that was clearer and more striking than I could have ever hoped to convey.

    I myself will give it a chance before I make any verdict. And by chance, I mean a few episodes. It would be wrong to pass judgement on something that isn't even released yet. So I will wait before deciding if it is good or not.

    Also.

    PSO2 Episode 4 hurts so bad that I don't even want to play PSO1 now; knowing that the story in which I am participating, through a manner of convoluted events that I cannot keep track of, eventually leads to THIS point.

    <_<

    I'm probably in the minority; I play PSO2 solo 99.8% of the time, and the main draw for me (admittedly) is the story. It's been easy for me to turn a blind eye to things that don't seem to 'fit' within the setting from my perspective. Hopefully it'll remain easy when I'm Sonic sprinting through the streets of Tokyo killing dinosaurs on Earth alongside kawaii schoolgirls(?)

    I think it's worth a shot, at least. I don't think it's fair to cry RUINED before we even get a chance to play it. Who knows, you might even like it?
    same here (or i play with 1-2 friends) and lets be real its a space sci fi they can make any bs happen for any reason

    You guys are too fast to pass judgement on things. Wait until it releases first before you pass judgement on it. Besides, as one person mentioned, you might even like it. So for now, just wait until you actually pass judgement.
