30 thoughts to “PSO2 3rd Anniversary: Maximum Attack [Web Panel Rewards]”

  1. If you look closer at that Costume presentation, the yellow-blue one in the middle appears to HAVE NO PANTIES AT ALL. (Unless it is some “G-string from the chest downwards”-body suit thing.)
    These customs won’t be sold under 50 oder 100 Million Meseta.

    1. Are you sure, I can make out a white or blue panties on her. I like how Suzuhito Yasuda’s been revealing more leg on his character designs.

  2. I was hoping to see PSO1 costumes? wtf are these shit things they are throwing at me? why should I give a fuck about more whore costumes?

    1. frankly, why would SEGA give a fuck about your PSO1 costumes when those “whore costumes” you speak of brings in more money?

    2. You should go back a few months and watch the first announcement trailer. They ARE bringing back the standard outfits from PSO1 as well.

  3. Last obscene costume was added somewhere before March.
    PSO costumes come in July, altogether with Hunewearl getup that is nothing to write home about, if we speak about chastity.
    Is everything okay guys?

  4. Actually, wish sega added a “imput number of X” or “scratch all your fun” or even “trade all your rares for cubes” options, 1, 10, or fk u seems too rigid, and even if inventory fulls up they can send it to your storage or ask you to keep/discard stuff, the excube one has no excuses however.

    1. “all” would only be useful once you figured out which square had the shop passes for that character during that scratch rotation. though possibly not even then depending on how many tries it would take to figure that out in the first place; you might have so little left that burning 1k at a time would do the job just fine.

      complete agreement about the excube/weapons-to-spheres thing though. if they can fix the “break down items” thing to be as many as you have up to a threshold, there’s no reason for those exchanges to not be that way as well.

  5. What is that golden message that just appeared it said “10” Then had a bunch of japanese after that?

    1. Can’t edit comments, but now I’m thinking…
      Are our translators Chinese or something? Literally ANY time there’s a name in katakana that has “sh” in it that isn’t obviously a loanword, “xi” is used for the translation. Xion and Xiao are fine since they were officially named that by Sega in the ED credits, but… really? Xie? Louxia? Did it not occur to anyone that her name might just be Shii? Or even Sea? Or even simply C? And I already addressed Louxia in my previous post. It just bothers the shit out of me.

    2. No one cares and no one is impressed. Stop trying to show off. Or, you can ask to join the Tweaker team and help translate with all of your “knowledge”…

    3. Whoa, calm the fuck down.
      Dude’s got a point, AIDA’s team has been consistently doing this. Who says he’s trying to impress anyone? Seems like you’re antagonizing him for nothing more than pent up frustration at something else.

    4. Whoa, calm the fuck down.
      Dude’s got a point,

      If he’s so bothered by the translation then he shouldn’t even use the Tweaker in the first place. He didn’t even contact the translators to attempt to fix it and ranted here which accomplishes nothing at all.

      And why are you replying to a 3 week old post? You’re exaggerating NHISSO’s reaction when A NON E-MOOSE’s rant is a whole lot more negative.

    5. Oh for god’s sake. Everyone is always acting like anyone who says anything negative, even when responding to negativity, are being over the top and/or are freaking out.

      My point was that instead of coming here to complain, ask to join the tweaker team if you think you are a Japanese language expert. As far as me poking a little fun at the OP for trying to show off; I wouldn’t have said it if his post wasn’t so snooty and pretentious. Couldn’t just offer up his corrections, had to act high and mighty.

      How bored are we for being back on this 3 week old post? 😛

      DAMN YOU MAINTENANCE NIGHT!

    6. Not as bored as me, reading these arguments that I had nothing to do with and trying to figure out who’s who from the proxy-chat just to pass the time until the game is back up. I’m guessing that A-NON E-MOOSE is Bobby from gchat.

    7. it probably did occur to them that there could be other ways to spell her name, but japanese transliteration is not a straightforward process. most likely, the translators figured since there were already official named characters with chinese-style names, they could do the same for the names of other characters.

      at the end of the day, it’s the choice of the translators for how those names will be spelled.

      if you want a real answer, you could contact AIDA’s team directly or even ask AIDA herself in-game.

    8. I don’t know what a Louxia is (if it’s an item name, then that is done by a team different than the core patch with which I am familiar), but I can comment on the others. Xion was named such because she was a weird mysterious character, and we thought it conveyed that better than “Shion” did. Xiao was named to follow suit. They may also have been named that way internally, I forget.

      Xie…should probably be “Sea” as in “seasonal.” At the time she first appeared, the game had seen only one other limited time event, which was headed up by a different unique NPC. We believed that Xie would be a one-timer as well, so we did not make the connection. Given the lack of information, Xie seemed a more interesting name than Sea. By the time it became clear that she would be the recurring seasonal NPC for all events, the name Xie had already stuck, and everyone was calling her that, so we decided against changing it.

      And now you know the rest of the story.

      Oh, and if this is about the DF [Dentist] mag, I’d personally go with “Loosier.” Rhymes with “hoosier.”

    9. Chill pill brutha. I don’t know who does the names but it ain’t AIDA’s team. It’s the tweaker team people i think. They don’t talk to the story translators. So don’t throw em all under the bus.

  6. Ill admit theres alot of flaws with some english names, but try to keep in mind that jp to english is seldom 100% accurate. That term transliteration, means to take a literal translation to w\e language your translating to.
    The most important thing to remember is those translations are meant for your english-speaking brain. They arent going to make perfect sense to those that actually can speak Japanese.
    On another note, the Npcs in gate lobby and shop area were named after astral bodies, which id why her name aint Sea. Sea is what u get from google translate….something thate wildly innaccurate. Her name is Xie. Get over it or play in vanilla like i do.

    1. and since you’re the grand sage who thinks they know everything, can you tell us which astral body is named “xie”?
      or even better, which one is named “dudu” ?

      yeah.
