In the beta, I noticed the mission system was a lot different from PSU, in PSU you actually had to progress to that physical place & there would be really nice hang out areas in between the missions. Are those still present in PSO 2? I remember we had beaches etc to hang out at & I just didnt feel there was many social areas in this game so far.
Also when purchasing player shop items do you goto their rooms & make the purchase still? I really enjoyed the first come first serve aspect & it was nice seeing your room be filled with random people, made the shop feel authentic to me.
