One thing I repeatedly read and hear is that people who talk about PSO seem to complain that an XBox Live subscription and a monthly fee is required to play Phantasy Star Online. While I can understand being a little disappointed, for the life of me I can't figure out why these things come as such a surprise to some. I was just wondering...in a "more mature" internet environment like the HTF (at least compared to some other boards), is there really a huge band of people who want to play this game but are *stunned* that you'd need a subscription to XBox Live? Is there anyone around here that thinks that $9 a month (after 2 free months) is too much to spend? In my best "Paul Baldwin" voice: "Discuss." Oh, I hope to see you online sometime next week. My character is a Hunter named "Beavis". So far, I've levelled up to Lv 7 offline, and still want to gain a little more XP. I played PSO on DC way back in the day with a Ranger named RockMeister. I've never played Episode 2 though. Can't wait to get into some new territory. How long do you think it would take to reach level 100+?
