So, here I am typing in this forums, without an avatar but with lots of wonders.
I've always been fascinated with Phantasy Star since the DreamCast title, which I never got to play despite of my friend playing on it all day.
And now, after I corageously bought both main game and expansion and started enjoying the offline game as much as I can, I am more and more tempted from the calling of the true Phantasy Star: the online mode.
But, since this is a monthly-fee game, I think I should be sure about what I'm doing. I know I could just pay the fee for the first month and try it out, but it would be reassuring to know the community is active and the online gameplay is actually so much fun before bitin' it, you know.
I'll admit I already read through the forums before registering for a couple of days now... Let me tell you, many and many topics actually scared me off a little. Those topics didn't really appeal me as far as in community, reading about senseless debates over trivial stuff becoming actual arguments instead of silly talk. But that can't be the whole truth, now can it?
Soooo... Call me whatever, hate me, do what you want about the previously posted: here we go with the non-blahblah part of this post =P
Does this game need you to work a lot before you get to the cool stuff? I know the game's easy enough anyways, but I don't really enjoy the need for days of grinding when you're still a low-level.
Are the rewards for what you do worth it? I ain't talking about the items or the levels here, but about the satisfaction for actually doing the stuff you need to.
And, mostly: do you guys actually have fun playing this game? I know, silly question, you're here so, duh. But... I don't know, it's just the question I want to ask.
On a sidenote: I'd be joining the GUARDIAN ranks from the PC flank.
Thank you for your time spent reading this patiently, hoping you can forgive my silly english. ^^
