  1. wasn't it "myau" in, at least the localized, PS1-4?

    yeah localization was bad way back then, but I don't know if it was spelled the same in japanese back then as it was here.

    I mean they jumped from "Rika's Claw" in PSO to "Falcalw" for PSU for some reason but I think they just forgot by then

    1. Rika's Claw has always been "Falclaw" in japanese. When they localized PSIV, they changed Fal to Rika.

      Myau was a character, but since this is a different setting, they probably thought to add a throwback type of character by adding it as an enemy.

  2. You forgot to add that Nyau can also sometimes call-forth some "scary" bosses. At least that's what it says in the preview picture.

  3. In before AIS customization and their widespread usage comes earlier than any sort of MAG system update.

    1. the Mags aren't in dire need of an update. Also. the "in before" stock phrase is old hat.

    2. Wow dude, why did you feel the need to bring up that bit about the "in before" phrase?

      Who CARES if it is old? This is the Internet, you'll see that a lot, get used to it.

      Also, for your reading pleasure, Doge. All your base are belong to us. Shazbot. Don't taze me bro. I can haz cheezeburger. I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

    3. I agree Mags don't need any update.

      Old phrase or not, what does it matter? You do realize that Phantasy Star itself is 20 years older than the phrase "in before" right? 😉

  4. WOOT! a clone of Myau! Awesome! I pray they will add in Costumes and weapon camos based on the costumes and weapons in Phantasy Star I, II, IV I'd LOVE to see a "Perseus Shield" arm unit, a Elsydion weapon camo, costumes based on Phantasy Star II and IV character's clothes… that kind of thing…

    1. It's not a clone of Myau. It doesn't even look similar to Myau in any way aside from the fact that they're both cats. I like old Phantasy Star games too, but that doesn't mean every new thing is a callback.

    2. It's extremely obvious that it is a throwback to the original Myau from PS1.

      he even has the vial around his neck.

  5. >na megid not working with charge escape
    ooooof course. the thing where losing your charge on it really is a nuisance is the thing that you can't dodge while charging.

    >letting people skip ep1/2 to go to 3
    okay, I understand that with as cheap as the last fight of ep2ch5 can be, that there would be a lot of folks not quite up to finishing and still interested in proceeding… but seriously just make that fight easier instead of letting people go "tl;dr" about the plot. yeesh.
