Greetings, fellow hunters. I have been playing on this server since last summer (or maybe the one before, I cannot remember for sure) and, quite frankly, I did not expected to come and post any message on the forum. But I recently had a few questions (which I will ask in the appropriate part of this forum in due time) and figured the polite thing to do before asking away was to at least introduce myself. So, to get on with that, I started this series with Phantasy Star 4 on emulator, which I liked enough to start farming and trying to beat the "megido-giving" boss, instead of simply playing hard-to-get and say I didn't want the all-blasting technique (never succeeded though, but as I never reached level 99, I still do not know if it is technically achievable, nor if the damn thing would still teach Megido to Chaz or simply vanish away after giving a puny meseta and experience point). I then discovered PSO on GC by chance (someone traded it with my brother for Skies of Arcadia. Still can't shake the feeling he got robbed, but well, it seems PSO was not his favourite kind of game). I then played this game for quite some time, but as it turns out, memory cards from BigBen are unreliable (to stay polite) and I had the opportunity to start multiples characters, none of them going farther than the Cave in Hard mode before the memory card got corrupted and needed to be repaired. Later, I played it on Dreamcast (yes, I played version 1 AFTER GC version. I am still not sure why I did that, though) and had a bit of fun casting two or three Megid with my ranger and finally getting to Very Hard (and getting wrecked by Dark Falz a few times) before realizing there was no Ultimate difficulty on this version (or at least I believe. I might be wrong). And quite recently (like yesterday or the day before that), I finished the first Phantasy Star on Nintendo Switch. And so, last summer, while I was getting bored since not many games seemed interesting enough, I told myself "Hey, what the heck. Weren't there a PC version of PSO?". And so there was. So I looked for a server that would allow me to play with a near-vanilla experience. Ephinea was the first I found and after reading a bit about it specificities, it turns out it propose something I like even more than a vanilla experience : a vanilla-enhanced experience (basically, the XP sharing based on PSO2 caught my eye. And the European server finished the job). Now I am playing from time to time, leveling my old faithful RaMar at my own slowest pace and quite recently had the opportunity to reach Ultimate (and the sweet feeling of dealing three times 0 damage with my mechguns) and also discover episode 4 (which seems to be unfriendly towards rangers, but I guess this is payback for OlgaFlow, which seemed REALLY unfriendly towards close-range hunters). On a separate note, I would consider selling my immortal soul for playing PSO2, but it turns out when Sega says "we will (finally) release the game for Occident", they only mean North America (I am French, if you are wondering). So I guess I will keep playing Xenoblade Chronicles X with a photon saber and dual guns on my Wii U and pretend it is the same. On a finishing note, and despite I do not think I have anything to bring on the table that anyone here does not already know about the Phantasy Star series, I am always happy to share my knowledge about pretty much anything. Should you find an information I might have and want to hear about, do not refrain and ask away.
