    1. yes, the yamato themed weapons leave riggings on your back when in use. the machineguns' rigging even has a :3 face on it kinda like rensouhou-chan. (admittedly it's more like what some of the chinese kancolle knockoff's girls have going on with their gear…)

      they're killin' me here. evil yamato clone that needs to be sunk, weapons that come with riggings, we have an admiral outfit, sega has the kancolle license because of the arcade game, and they're dittering around with sakura taisen (which despite it's fans' interest has basically been dead for eight years now… I hope they're using it to build hype for a new sequel because goddamn that's some horrid c***tease to that fandom if not.) and FFXIV crap.

      SEGA. Y U NO KANCOLLE COLLAB. hell, sakai could have more school uniforms to beat off to as part of the deal.

    2. Sakai must of became too salty from not getting Yamato from LSC. Tanaka's power over RNG is too much for Sakai.

      But seriously. SEGA needs to up its game on the Kancolle cashing; all the convenience stores, chain restaurants, etc know where the money is at. Although if I were them, I'd wait for the Kancolle movie and release stuff around then.

  1. >AIS sword for player use
    maidoll's comic came true…!

    it's not bad to see them grabbing at the Project Cute stuff again, but it's burnin' my ass that the racequeen outfit STILL hasn't been brought along.
    contrast -yet more- realworld fashion, the stuff that hasn't been selling well. someone's missing the point in that department.

    zelazny's appearance explains why the area boss for tokyo is an in-universe movie monster when the guy seemingly behind most of the trouble in the tokyo was a .mil otaku. makes you wonder what else we're going to find with regard to all that. of course, you wonder as well why hitsugi is stopping by her apartment without backup, when mother cluster wants her head and knew quite well where she lived. on the ship we see her ducking behind planters in hopes of not being seen by MC members, and then she goes home alone? c'mon girl.

    aaand I have to grump about it again because people seem like they're not noticing it: all these collect file things have end dates, meaning they go into "and now you pray for drops" territory like so many other things after that point. kinda completely misses the idea of replacing the eight million pyroxenes, if they're gonna take the less miserable option away. the stones may be an inventory space waster but at least they remain so that if your lowbie alt or some new player should happen to want something associated with them, they can earn it. making the ability to earn stuff a time-limited thing is going to get really bloody irritating.

    1. MOST people seem like they know better than to go on whine binges based on extremely scant evidence.

      Also, "kill X of Critter A" =/= "sacrifice barnyard animals to RNGesus in hopes of drops" last I checked.

  2. when i run tweaker is says do not detect me gameguard the tweaker work before update now i cant play so what am i doing wrong

    1. some great ARKS was posting in this site chat, about his personal PSO2 launcher "mock2launcher", you can try that.. it works for me.

  3. I wonder if they're updating overall boss behavior, or adding separate enhanced versions. Update emblem contains amduscia bosses, so it wouldn't be limited to emergency quest bosses.

    1. His name is Bethor Zelazny. Surname suggest that he is polack, and name was taken from the roster of olympian spirits, just like Hagito.

  4. remember dark falz? remember when pso was cool? you know laser swords and space mages? REMEMBER ULTIMATE MODE BEING FUN AND DIFFICULT AND CHALLENGING?

  5. So… collection files will have end dates, after all, as well as cooldowns. What this adds up to is more of Sega insisting we play on their schedule, not our own, just like the whole EQ system itself.

    Oh, well, not like I have ever cared about having the most powerful stuff in the game. It's not like you actually need it anyway.

  6. are those A.I.S and Yamato collection is going to be a weapon, or camo? 'coz I like the A.I.S ones /o/

    1. "•Phantom Battleship Yamato and A.I.S themed *Weapons* appear." (emphasis added)


  7. Hi, Kenneth or anyway who might know, if i buy the April 21, 2016 famitsu weekly but it ships and arrives after the 28th… will the item code still be valid to use? Any insight is appreciated… I just want to get it in time… also is the 'tact' in the 2nd camo mean takuto aka baton?

    1. You typically have over a year from the time of release before an item code expires.

      The [*Sigh of A God ] is indeed a camo for the Summoner's tact (baton) weapon.

  8. Anyone here can help me where could I find the item code for the PSO2 Animation Guide Book No.1? I recently bought that magazine and I've been trying to look for the code in the book. Does it had some special ticket being placed inside the book that has those codes?
