    Yeah, I've played a fair bit of BB on SCHTHACK and Ephinea, but generally a majority of parties these days run Towards The Future because it's just a bumrush of EXP,  which is disappointing. Ephinea's really good, mind - it has a bunch of decent features, like being able to pick your Section ID, an individual drop system and a common bank. It also lets you have 32 characters per account, if you're really that inclined.

    A couple of the old Phantasy Star Universe crew have also been playing on PSU Clementine , which is really the only current Private Server for PSU. It's decent, but it's currently down for the forseeable future - it basically got to a point where the server was running for the sake of running with a bunch of things just not working, and instead of the original goal of making everything work it ended up with people just wanting to play (and, surprise, running the best EXP farm continually instead of beta testing shit).

    Thankfully, for Clem, we're getting constant dev updates on what they're actually doing, including figuring out how to make and rebuild new and existing missions.


    Nice one. I am always a little worried they would just shutdown those servers at any time. I have a copy off PSO Plus and was thinking of doing a legit run offline to 200 again as it the only official version with the most offline content. Yes I am mad....

    Apologies for the double post, but this actually got me thinking - as I'm playing the JPN version, I'm still doing emergency quests. Which didn't make sense, as it's during the dead of night in Japan.


    As it turns out, the emergency quest system runs around the clock every 2-4 hours, as well as random occurrences. You can see here: http://www.bumped.org/psublog/pso2-jp-maintenance-and-patch-7302014/ .


    With any luck, we'll just see a wholesale transfer of this system and we'll just skip concerts.


    You'll still get wrecked by Server Maintenance, however - this week was an 'extended maintenance' period, which due to JST was precisely 15 hours between 5pm to 8am the following day in UK time.


    The server maintenance seems really excessive, but I have no idea of what they actually do, so it may be warranted. When I think about it, I am too much of a fan of Phantasy Star to miss out on this version even if it doesn't get an EU release.


    Slightly off the thread title, have you ever played Blue Burst on private servers on PC? I only just found out about them so I downloaded the client and it seems pretty cool so far.

    Damn this 3DS is working out expensive


    In the last week I've bought

    Mario 3D Land

    Wario Ware Gold

    Ridge Racer 3D

    Elite Beat Agents

    And now Bowsers Inside Story


    Cheap gaming soon adds up. 


    Haha, yep it adds up even when they are cheap. I think I bought and still have all those brand new retail price when they first came out.

  4. I went over to Scarborough today to check out the arcades. First time I have been back in about 10 years, so obviously didn't expect much. Amongst all the 2p machines and fruit machines I came across one pretty cool game. It came out in 2015, so I am sure many of you have seen it before, Namco Dark Escape 4D. I thought it was pretty good effort considering the arcades were pretty much dead even back then. I found some info on it on a website.




    Anyway, in-between some personal nostalgia, amazing weather, fish and chips, this was a great end to the day.

  5. Well, I personally was disapointed by my X in terms of performance (I bought it at launch), it felt more like another stop gap like the S. Games wise, with it been Microsoft, you are better off investing in a good PC as pretty much all the games can be played on PC at higher res and more importantly 60fps.

    Posted in the bargains forum but worth noting here - price drop on console versions at Game to £19.99.


    Thanks. I just picked it up from Game and they gave me a Steel Book as well for £19.99. It also has the Gold gun codes with it - Not that I was bothered.

    The DLC is definitely not worth what I paid for it in terms of quantity of content, but if you look at that overall deal then I would say spend the £30. You get three extra missions and three extra planes (plus some skins/emblems).


    The extra missions really let you 'stretch your wings' with lots of enemies and lots of ammo replenishment (and no interference from weather or other handicaps), so they are great for messing around in.


    edit - if you have VR then this is a no brainer, although the DLC doesnt add anything to that mode.


    When you read the description of those DLC missions is sounds like they are in VR.

    Finally got a chance to try this out now, and it's fucking outstanding. Seriously adds a whole new level to the game, and to think that it's a free update is just fantastic.


    I was kind of thinking they might create specific 360 degree song packs that you needed to buy but the fact that they have added them into a load of the free, and already released DLC packs is amazing. I believe they have also said they will be adding more 360 modes to songs that currently don't have them so that's a bonus as well.


    360 mode is definitely not the mode you are going to be throwing new users into, but once you are happy with the mechanics it's a wonderful addition, and it's quite funny at the end of a song when you realise that you are facing in a completely different direction to the one that you thought you were. It's also a wonderful advert for tether free!


    Oh cool, will have to try that 360 mode, I presume it isn't available for PS VR lol.
