    Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst will go up for free download tomorrow (05/10).

    No subscription charges will take effect until June, and you will not be pressured to give out any credit card information before that time.

    US Download site - http://www.psobb.com
    Europe Download site - http://www.psoblueburst.com

    This game is online ONLY. All your character data is held securely on their server, and you can log onto your character from any PC that has PSOBB installed on it.

    PSOBB includes Episodes I, II and IV of the popular saga. Although Episodes I & II have previously been released for home console systems, Episode IV is unique to this latest PC version and rounds out the plotline of the series. I'm currently unclear as to whether Episode IV comes part of the free download, or if it will be released as a seperate charged expansion like it did in Japan. We'll find out in a bunch of hours when the site fully opens I guess.

    Neat. I wonder if the game will lend itself to gamepad control.

    This game was fucking fun as hell back in the golden-age of gaming (when the Dreamcast was still kicking :wtc:).

    But then the hackers and player killers totally ruined it. :madfawk:

    This new version is ok. It's got server-side saving, and it's very well moderated. The console versions were turned to s*** with hacks.

    There's currently a problem with BB - the patch server is down, and you need the latest patches to be able to play. But it should be resolved within the hour.

    I was able to get the patch yesterday while I was at work, but just poked around on one of the ships for a few minutes before I had to log out. But then I couldn't get the patch last night or this morning at home.

    Yeah, I've heard they had more than 20,000 downloads on the release day. The game servers went down, and the message board on the official website also went down due to traffic.

    I was able to play the game for about 5 hours yesterday when things were working. I've written the install file onto a CD so my friends can use that instead of downloading it.

    Try http://www.fileplanet.com if the official site isn't working for you. That's where I got my copy, since they had it a day early.

    Been playing this game, but it's hard because my comp is shitty :hs:

    I need a new comp, and then I'll probably be paying the monthly fee to play :o

    Lvl 22 Ra___ (the male Ranger with spells)

    Named "ZiG" I hang out in the Hyperion servers.

    Though I'm studying for finals, I'll be online constantly after the 25th.

    EDIT: Anyone know how to set the 1-0 buttons to use items, spells, attacks?

    I'm using a controller to play and keyboard to type if that helps. I can only config the controller to those 6 button layout patterns.

    I'm a Lv 40 RAcast now.

    Currently they still only have Episode I, Normal/Hard mode up.

    Not sure when Ep II/ IV are due, but Sonic Team tend to spring updates on you without warning.

    Speaking of Episode IV (the only completely new part of PSOBB), have a look at some gameplay vids of the Japanese version here http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=903.

    I can now use Ryuker!

    My best rare weapon is a lowly Varista pistol and I have a Club of Laconium in the bank.
