Phantasy Star Online Episode III: C.A.R.D. Revolution (Cube) - Probably the second most exciting thing on the E3 list (if it is what it sounds like), PSOE3 (handy) expands the universe offering "a new style of strategic combat", combining card collection and deck settings with team-based battle tactics. There will be the usual lobby areas with status upgrades and all that, and strategic combat via a "turn-based card system", which sounds a bit like Lost Kingdoms. Online and offline play will be thrown in, and on the whole it sounds like Sega wants to develop the franchise without alienating its core userbase - a noble ambition.

Along with the news on the new PSO game for GC, I have some screenshots i'd like to share.

the pics look awesome! I wonder if it'll be like a final fantasy where you go exploring and unfold the story with the turn based fight sections thrown in...

Ok how nice does that look. Looks like they are heading towards final fantasy design art works.

Hmm pso is pretty much turn based isn't it? :D

It'll be more taem based/ You have to depend on others to play the right cards. And once you know your team well, you will be unstoppable. (At least in theory :D ). I think it will be good. Graphics look nice. Cross between real and comic book.

I personally think its a mistake to change the essence of the game as it is. Why not just have this "Episode 3 card" nonsense as a seperate game?!

I think it has spoilt it by using a Card based way of fighting. I think the original way of fighting is fine.

I totally love the graphics of this game. I just can't wait for it. Anything PS is finger-licking goooooood.

Ive got to admit, the graphics are amazing. I just dont like the ideo about using the cards to fight

O......................M.........................G

I want this game NOW. Not NOW, yesterday. The graphics are soooooo cool. Nice combination of monsters in CCA area. Lol. I wonder how battles are going to work online. If turn based then everyone has to wait for their turn. What would happen if someone afk . Automatic turn after minute?? That would be best.

I think this turn based card game junk is going to suck, but hey that is just my opinion. :D But I'm stilling probably going to check it out.

Ill most probably lend it out first to see if its any good. If it is I'll most probably buy it

When i first heard about it i imagined it to be something like YU-GI-OH:Forbidden Memories but looking at those screens it actually looks quite cool. Does anyone when its schelduled for release in EU?

Well, I am trying to make an applet that will help me convert Japanese text to English. But you have to look at the Japanese text, look for the symbol and then putting in the romanji (the english character version of Japanese characters). I hope I can get it to work

Hope work goes well on it. I was a bit confused when I first seen it.

in my view it sort of defeats the purpose of pso. i mean look at all the turn based rpgs out there and all the card games. there taking out what is great and unique about pso and turning it into the average old turn based rpg.

it would be great if the cardgame was like a bonus game and not the main combat system. i must admit the graphics are brilliant.

I know what you mean. But the original PS series were turn-based RPGs. So you could say it is returning to its roots. I think the great thing about PSO is the language thing. You can have a good team game with anyone around the world. Take C-mode for example. There isa pretty comprehensive list of things you can say. And card battles seem more tactical than real-time, which is what PSO is about. Team work. And you get to play the bad guys which is cool.

Have any of you watched the Anime Series Yu-Gi-Oh? If the games anything like that, it's gona rule! I just love watching it. You have to be smart (something that I'm not :rolleyes: ) and you've got to have stratergy to win. I just love it!

Hopefully the game will be good to play. And the graphics are amazing! Best I've seen in a while.

i have seen yu-gi-oh and i have also played the gba games (eternal duelist soul and world wide edition) but i still stick to my point i made earlier games like pso are too few and games like yu-gi-oh eternal duelist soul are the type of games u get board of very easily.

Proj3ct_Zer0
05-06-2003, 06:08 PM
I've never played a game like that, so I wouldnt really know :). Thats why I'm going to rent the game out first and see how it goes. If its any good, I'll most probably buy it. The only problem is, the video shop near mine doesnt rent out many games (good ones like PSO anyway). So it was really a game of chance for me and PSO.

Iknow how it feels not to be able to hire gamecube games as i have to go all the way into town to hire a game from the only place in christchurch that hire gcn games.

the chances are i'd probably end up buying ep3 just because its pso and you can still interact with players online but i doubt it will be as good as ep1&2

The nearest game shop for me is just up the road, but they dont give the choice of quality games such as PSO :(

decswxaqz
18-06-2003, 11:51 PM
They don't rent out PSO because you need serial codes and such forth to connect. You can't replicate the codes on another console without causing errors.

Proj3ct_Zer0
19-06-2003, 04:49 PM
That maybe why then. You can just imagine all serial codes being posted everywhere for use.

When i first heard of the sequel, i thought COOL. When i saw some picies, i thought, ooooo nice graphics, but whats that in the corners, cards, CARDS?! poo!

But now ive played Phantsy Star Online, Episodes I & II online, ive thought differently about Episode III. The card based system will definately work and is perfect, but only if your playing offline multiplayer, or online. If your playing offline or online on your own, its pretty much gonna start getting boring quite quickly. To be honest, id rather use weapons and get stuck in!

Ill still buy it anyways though, its got the words Phantasy Star Online in it, so its worthy of a purchase!

...... The way ur talking it sonds like ur going to use cards to sumin monsters (yu-gi-o, lost kingdoms)... LOOK AT THE CARDS!!! i think that the cards are just a new butin bar like a basic atack card, a lv24 barta card and yore deak is yore custimiz screen, i might just be a fool...........

After searching the SEGA sites, i found a trailer for PSo, Episode III i hadnt seen before, complete with music and everything. If no-ones seen it yet, you can download it by clicking here (http://www.sega.com/images/gametitle/psocard/movie1/mov_psocard_gc_1_qth.mov). Im so nice, and the game looks brilliant!

That screenshot holds no sign of cards of anything, making it look incredibly similar to Episodes I & II...

That green dinosaur looks like a Garanz to me. The one to the right looks like a Barbarous Wolf. The next one looks like a Xfos or something. One of those things in Seabed.

Well im sorry to disappoint u but ure gonna have 2 depend on those thinly sliced pieces of trees with little markings and special powers, bcos episode III is reliant upon cards n cards only!

I think making Cards and changing the battle style was A "HUGE"mistake.
I loved they batle style they had.And now you seem useless cus you'r cards willl do evreything for you making you seem like a weak loser.

26-07-2003, 09:03 PM
I was expecting a much advanced version of Episode I and II. Better graphics, bigger levels, more characters and enemies and much more. But its alot different.

Id have to play the game first before I buy it to see wether its any good. Unlucklily, they dont rent out PSO games round the video shop were i live :(

26-07-2003, 09:07 PM

Id do the same but Im usually the one to get the games first out of all my friends. Then they play it at mine anf buy it if its good. So its gona by a luck thing for buyin Episode 3. I dont doubt Sega, and I expect it to be good (hopefully).
