      PSO2 was the peak of the series but NGS is shit.

      So whats the next region? Stia was a step in the right direction compared to Kvaris. But still doesnt instill much confidence in NG's future. Im still banking on this game giving us an End of Service notice within 2 years.

      For me P2/Infinity was the peak.
      PSO2's core gameplay is fun but I've never really liked the rest of the game's mechanics/features (especially EQs).

      Blue protocol is the true pso2 successor.

      Amazon shit aside, honestly I have no faith in anything "live service" made by Bamco, and Blue Protocol's gameplay isn't that impressive either.

        EQ were interesting in the sense that they sped up raids, you didnt need to look for a party if you didnt want to, the drop rate was absolute garbage but the game compensated it with the cast dude weapons shop

        We were on the verge of greatness, luminechs were actually interesting enemies mechanically, many actually designed with the 3D space in mind... but its all gone now

      PS3 has a lot of issues but the story really feels like something that could have been written by Vance, Brackett or a similar author back in the 70s or 80s. It absolutely nails the pulpy mix of science fiction and fantasy stuff.

      If Sega released something like that, it would be a mobile game.
      Some dude at PSOWorld made an "expansion pack" of sorts for Card Revolution, a mod that puts all online-only stuff and cut content in the single-player mode (plus some other features). Give it a go if you haven't played it already.

      I don't think NGS' story-related problems are about dumb writers and their dumb target audience.
      Considering the game's current state, I'm absolutely sure there are no (non-AI) writers in NGS' dev team and the game's target audience just wants to enjoy their hyper bimbo ERP scenarios in peace.

      I'm playing through the story mode now. It's decent, decent charm to it at the moment. I'm actually surprised how different it is from the rest of the series, possibly for the best as well. It's shaping up to be a peak of all of the games.

      Also no, PSP2i was an expansion which included the original PSP2 episode with it. It's all pretty much self contained for story as well.

        Yes, you can bring NPCs to missions if you are having trouble with them or just want cute girls following you around.
        >Do I need to play the previous entries?
        PSP2 Infinity includes both the original PSP2 and the new Infinity storyline, they are directly connected so start with Episode 1 and get the good ending (may take two playthroughs if you are bad with women, but the second playthrough is hard mode so at least you get more EXP and cool items).
        You don't need to play the original PSU trilogy or PSP1, PSP2's story is standalone (timeskip after the events of the original trilogy, old protags saved the world and are adults with successful careers so the new story have nothing to do with them).

        The online servers have been shut down for ages. It's still possible to play multiplayer through tools like hamachi or whatever people use these days.

        That said, nothing prevents you from just entering multi mode and playing missions on your own, aside from the fact that they're harder than solo missions. Some multi mode missions are going to be very difficult to solo, though.

        You can ignore the online if you only care about the Story Mode.
        Multi Mode has a couple of exclusive Missions that drop some of the highest rank gear and are a decent way to get EXP/Type EXP.
