Prelude to PSO2?
Recently I acquired a Sony PlayStation Portable (or PSP) from my brother who was looking to ‘upgrade’ to a PSPgo. Funny thing is on the day I purchased it the PlayStation Network went down, and with that any chance of me being able to download any games off their store. As I have recently written, I have a immense passion for Phantasy Star Online. I am always looking for ways to recapture that magic from 10 years ago (as I mentioned in my recent Too Human post).
With the PlayStation Network down for the foreseeable future, I wanted a UMD game just so I could make use of my PSP in some fashion. While checking Amazon.com I noticed Phantasy Star Portable 2 available for a mere $15! I thought that was a good deal and also a potential online game I could play with my brother. So yesterday I finally received the game, plugged it in, created a character…and now I wait.
I am a little nervous and daunted about returning to a Phantasy Star ‘online’ game. am worried that perhaps so much time has passed that I may find it difficult to acclimate myself to the Phantasy Star universe once again. But I did buy it, so I guess I should try it. I should consider it a warm-up for the potential of playing a PSO game again. Hopefully it does not take my PSO ‘phantasys’ and crap all over them. I will let you know how it turns out!
