Full Version: So who's staying past the Beta?
Apocalypse Tribe HQ > Diversions > Phantasy Star
Frosty
I ask this a lot in game, so I just figured I would make a topic about it. How many people will be playing PSOBB past the beta? I'm getting my bank card pretty soon, so I'll most likely still be playing until PSU comes out. Anyone else?
donkeybeatz
I would as long the servers stay up for a good amount of time =\
I'm not sure if I'll be playing past summer.
Bryn
At this point I'm planning on staying past beta. I don't have any timeframe in mind, but I'll be in for a while. ^^
Vitamin D
I plan to stick around past the beta, but i'm not sure how long. It's hard to up and quit PSO though haha.
tanshin
Not really sure, it depends on what comes up.
Knightsword
I may play past the beta as well
DarkEpyon
Definitely considering it... if they find a way to fix it so my chances of a successful login are more than 50/50.
Nynaeve
What sort of $ are we looking at, anyone know yet?
Frosty
$8.99 a month, not sure if they charge for the client or not.
Bryn
It would seem that indeed the client is free.

I think I will continue past beta, as long as there are cool people playing.

It's a good warmup for PSU.
Scan_Man
Let me play EP4 now. And I'm sold.
Castoth
Wait, wait. Your character data will actually end up transfering to the retail version after all!? beigebigeek.gif

Maybe I should switch to my real character class now and actually take the beta more seriously than before.
Dive
We're coming up on the retail release, anyone still considering staying?

I haven't been on much lately, but I gotta check out Episode 4. I will try it for a month at least.
DarkEpyon
WOLKAISER's destiny of becoming one of the top 10 HUcasts to 200 must be fulfilled.

How many different levels did you guys get to see in the beta? Only EP1 stuff and only to Hard? That's what I am reading...
We have seen the pics for EP4 online, right? Is that the one with the huge hole in the ground?

and...

I know you guys are loving this BB stuff, but do NOT burn yourself out before PSU comes to town. I will be super pissed at you guys. It's killing me that I have missed out on this BB action and I am looking forward to seeing everyone on PSU next year.
Dive
That's correct, we only got up to Hard Mode and only Episode 1. No C-Mode or Battle was released either. It got a little stagnant with only the dreamcast equivalent stages which we have all played to death, so I really want to get to the new areas.

We miss you as well in BB. I know if you had been there you would have owned the Team Point Challenge. beigebiggrin.gif

Don't worry about anyone getting burnt out before PSU, this is only a warmup.
Vitamin D
Yeah, no worries on burning out. I do plan to play past the beta, but I haven't been playing much right now because there's a HUGE lack of variety haha. The new stuff will revive my interest though, and I'll be playing a LOT more. ninja2.gif
Azrael
I'm staying past the beta. I will reach 200 this time or die trying. At the most, it will keep me entertained and busy until PSU does come out, at which time I hope to had reached said goal.

Do you think you could`get him to release PSU earlier? king.gif
kyori
Woo, I haven't clocked in on previous bits :/ but I'll be playing retail. I've just been playing with my usual Gaming-age crew or lack there of. beigebiggrin.gif I currently lead team Gaming-Age in fact. In anycase, I usually hang around Tethys 6 beigebiggrin.gif
DarkEpyon
Well, here we are. The billing site's under maintenance, but everything else is up.
Dive
Yea, so I decided to sign up.

Let me know if you are a member of the Team, and you are not going to be playing any further, I will remove you from the team to free up slots for others interested.

I'll give this a few days then start deleting names if I don't hear from you or see you in game.

Send me a PM and let me know of your intentions.
DarkEpyon
Nice to see you (and Bryn) are sticking around, Dive. As all of you may know, episode 4 comes out this coming thursday. I have one bit of advice: be afraid, be very afraid. I have it on good authority that the difficulty factor is up there. If you play in standard 4-player mode, you better have a good balanced team.
Dive
Hell yea, I can't wait to try out some new pso stages. I hope I have free time on thursday to check it out, we should get together and recon the new areas. megaman-run.gif
DarkEpyon
If not, then it'll have to wait till Saturday, since I'll be out of town to see my girlfriend on Friday (she had been bugging me to go and see her the past couple weeks).
donkeybeatz
I'm still waiting on my new video card to come in (which would probably be next week).
Then its FO action time.
Azrael
I'm up for that. Do you guys still play on Hyperion 7? I haven't seen a lot of ATers there recently, but then again I have been playing solo a lot recently for rares and to catch up. I havent had much luck until just recently in that department. Found an elysion for my FOmar and SParts ver 1.16.
Frosty
Expect me to be back around August 20th. If by chance that laptop I'm getting is decent, possibly sooner. But I'll mos def be playing until PSU comes out.
