I've been a PSO fan since April 2001. I started with the original Dreamcast version. My first character was a blue HUcast named Big O (named after the eponymous anime that aired on Toonami at the time). I only played offline, since I couldn't play online.
I then moved to the GameCube version, where I recreated my HUcast, and also made a FOmar. Again, I could only play offline. Reached LV 123 or so with my HUcast.
Over the years, I kept missing out on opportunities to play any iteration of PSO online. By the time I could play Blue Burst online, it shut down....same with Universe. I didn't care much for the Portables, and I just plain missed Zero.
And then, in 2012, I heard that PSO2 was coming. "Another chance to get onboard," I thought--but then there was the eight-year wait...but now it's here, and so am I! FINALLY!!!!
I play a HUcast--I mean, uh....Hunter/Fighter Cast mainly, because I want to carry the spirit of my original character with me into this new experience. I also have a Ranger and a Bouncer. I miss the old race/class naming conventions...they were so unique.
So far, I love the game! Haven't made any friends in-game yet, and no one I know IRL does., so there's no one for me to share this experience with.
I typically don't interact with people/communities, but I am taking this chance to put myself out here and engage with this community. I hope to make friends and perhaps join an alliance.
When I don't play PSO, I also do art.
Guess that's it here. Thanks for reading and it's nice to meet you.
