Probably for the better. 2, 3 and 4 form a nice trilogy.

and that's a bad thing?

I have beaten 1, Gaiden and 2. All of them were massive grindfests. Give me a reason to try out the others.
>>
>>283402246
Isn't more like 1,2, and 4 make the trilogy ?
Ever since SEGA Sammy got Altus, I been hoping they would make a phantasy star 5. Just hope they don't make teens foi themselfs
>>
>>283402526
Just try 4, it's pretty good.

Eh, it's debatable. I don't really remember exact details to discuss about it, though. Really need to replay them one of these days.
>>
I fucking love PSIV
>>
>>283402526

4 is fucking phenomenal. I'd place it up there with Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 6, and Lufia 2 as one of the best RPGs of the 16-bit era.

And no, no nostalgia goggles here. I didn't play the game until I was a grown man.
>>
>>283402883
PS games had the misfortune of being released on SEGA consoles which didn't exactly have a strong JRPG offering so people ended up overlooking them. It's a shame, really.
>>
>>283402775

1, 2, and 4 are related to one another. 3 is more of a side-story that doesn't involve the Algo system planets, but is still directly related to the events in 2.

>>283402775
I've been play 4 and a bit of 2 recently and I can say, it was 1,2, and 4 that makes the trilogy. 3 is kinda it's own thing, taking place somewhere else.
>>
>>283402526
4 doesn't require any grinding, and is one of the best RPGs of that era.

I would avoid 3, though. It's not particularly grindy, but the game has deeper problems. The developers had all sorts of cool, innovative ideas they wanted to try out in PS3, and they failed to implement a single one of them well. The game is a mess.
>>
Has anyone played the PS games on the psp? I love the shit out of it but I never played 2. Please tell me 2 was goat!
>>
>>283403117

3 is

A world ship from Parma. When Parma blew up, some ships managed to escape and brought humans to Dezolis and Motavia. However one ship got lost and ended up floating through space for 1000 years and the people on it regressed to a middle-ages level of civilization.
>>
>>283403316

PSP2 was indeed GOAT. It was like the smarter, faster, prettier cousin of Zero.
>>
>>283402964

to be honest they are pretty clunky (no spell descriptions, managing item is a nightmare, super high encounter rate) compared to something like... FF6
>>
>>283403554

1 was 8-bit, and pretty advanced for an 8bit RPG.

2 on the other hand, was rather crude for a 16bit RPG but it was released early in the Genesis' lifespan.

3 was just a mess.

4 is great. I wish someone would take the other 3 PS games and remake them using 4's combat engine and assets.
>>
1 was ahead of its time
2 was also ahead of its time
3 is very different but I liked it
4 was by far my favorite entry in the series that only 2 rivaled

I enjoyed PSO on the Dreamcast, I just wish they'd revisit the actual original series but then again Sega is mongoloid retarded so that will never happen.

I'm not so interested in a new sequel. The original series are pretty much complete, and I don't think I want to see Sega trying to fuck up such nice story, like they did with PSO storyline with the time/space traveling adventures in PSPo2i (or so I heard, never played it).
I would love to see a "Remake Collection", though. Maybe something like PSGeneration 1&2.

3 also ties in to the original PSO.
>>
>>283405546

Dark Force (Falz. Lawlz) wrecks shit constantly there. Planets blow up. Planet-wide terraforming computers go haywire. A shit-ton of time passes between 2 and 4 and a lot happens and society just kinda crumbles. Also 3 is it's own thing.
>>
>>283406097

It doesn't.

PSO makes lots of nods to the original PS games, but is not connected to them in any way, shape, or form. PSO is it's own universe.
>>
>>283406219
When the first Pioneer ship arrived on the planet, there were already signs that someone else had been there.

One popular fan theory is that this somebody else was one of the lost ships from the Parma exodus, carrying its own Dark Falz on board.
The people on board knew how to seal it, but somehow their civilization went down anyways.

The people from Pioneer 1 undid the seal while exploring, releasing Dark Falz.
>>
>>283405371
PSZ is hardly a sequel to any of the PS or PSO games, with how it doesn't even take place on any of their locations.

>spend entire game fighting the moon
>"oh, by the way, I've heard of this "Dark Falz" once..."
>Dark Falz comes out of nowhere

It could be set on Earth a few centuries after the ship has departed, I guess, but then it's just a side story.
>>
>>283406504

No.

PSO is it's own universe.

Chaz killed all the Dark Force when he killed the Profound Darkness. Dark Falz =/= Dark Force.

PSO is it's own universe.

Original timeline is 1 > 2 > 4. 3 isn't exactly connected to the rest of the series, Adventure is supposed to be after 1 and before 2, I believe.
Also, PSO timeline is Zero's backstory > PSO Epi1 > Epi2 > Epi4 > Epi3 > Zero's actual story.

>>283406564
PSZ is set on planet Coral, the origin of Pionner 1 and 2. Timeline-wise, it happens after all PSO episodes, but all info about the old Coral (Mother project, for example) is related to some of the PSO's storyline.

>>283406810

Isn't PSO's Dark Falz called "Dark Force" in the japanese version?

3 is connected to the other games, it's just doing it's own thing. It's actually happening at the same time as PS4 but a billion miles away.

Then what is Dark Falz doing on Coral? Pioneer project was created specifically because Dark Falz lured them on Ragol. Presumably, it's because it wasn't already on Coral. Multiple Dark Falz incarnations existing at the same time wasn't a thing until PSO2.

Not to mention that scientists in PSO suspect that there was no crisis on Coral to speak of, and that the story about it was just a cover-up. Which makes the theory about them fleeing from a malfunctioning Mother a bit shaky.

>Then what is Dark Falz doing on Coral?
I guess that Dark Force is everywhere because Dark Force is just a "dark force". You know, the basic concept of a generic evil power that wants to ruin everybody's day just for the sake of it. Or maybe Sega is just wanted to use the name again (a bit similar to how you fight Dracula in pretty much every Castlevania even though he is "supposed" to revive every 100 years or so).

>Not to mention that scientists in PSO suspect that there was no crisis on Coral to speak of, and that the story about it was just a cover-up
Well, I admit that I don't remember this part. I'm replaying PSOBB right now (trying to complete all government quests), I will try to find this dialogue.

>Which makes the theory about them fleeing from a malfunctioning Mother a bit shaky.
I thought Coral's Mother[brain] was completed after Pionner 2 left the planet, as a special AI that would find a way to fix Coral's environment problems, because Pionner project wasn't planning to "save" the whole population, and I think the communication between Coral and Pionner 2 was lost during PSO's storyline so the project (was a way to find another planet to live) was a failure. Shit, I need to replay PSZ too.

>>283407970
Nope. Just some achievements, I think.
>>
>>283411573
>I will try to find this dialogue
Pretty sure it's one of the scientists in Principal's room who says that. My memory is shaky, but I'd guess it should be in either one of the Ruins, or one of the Mines quests.

And I don't remember Mother providing much insight on her actions other than that she was doing something about the environment.

>some player will eventually post on the main forum a way to play the JP version with translations and shit
>localized version dies eventually
Sega can't even keep PSPo2 on the PSN store or keep a fucking flash/emulator site alive (PlaySega). I bet they will become a JP-only company in the next few years, and SoA/E will either die or become an independent company.

>fan theory
You've just defeated your own point. Fan theories are ALWAYS bullshit without exception, especially so when developers have confirmed facts, as with PSO. PSO continuity is not related to classic Phantasy Star in any way, and that's str8 from the horses anus.

>>283406810
>Dark Falz =/= Dark Force.
=/= does not equal "does not equal". And Dark Falz and Dark Force are both transliterations of Daaku Farasu. It's closer to Dark False than Force and Falz is just a bullshit transliteration created due to a character limit in the original Master System game, I can't beleive PSO went back to using it...
In any case they have the same name regardless of continuity, ignoring the woeful translation that the entire franchise suffers from.

telepipe breaking game trick...?
>>
>>283424174
If you sell all your stuff at the beginning of the game before you get tossed in prison in PS3, you can afford a Telepipe. The Telepipe is an item that teleports you out of a dungeon. If you use the TP in the prison sequence, you instead get teleported to a special room where you're told it's usually a good idea but doing it where you did broke the game script and you have to reset.
