Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst

Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst

I downloaded the client for the beta test of the PC version last night. This evening, I have struggled and fought to get the bloody thing to work – and after two hours, I’m giving up.

Firstly, I couldn’t type anything. That meant that I couldn’t even get into the game. Turned out to be something to do with Japanese language support. Then I could type, but it wouldn’t recognise the ID and password I was setting up. It seems that “Register ID” actually means “Go to this webpage we’re not going to tell you the location of, sign up there, and then come back and use the Register ID button again and use the ID you’ve just signed up with”.

With that out of the way, I could start the game and actually get into some of the menus. Sadly, I accidently quit out of the menus, and now I can’t get back into them again. Also, I can’t chat to anyone, nor quit the game.

Unless I Alt-Tab out, which actually quits, meaning I can’t tab out, check the forums for help, and tab back – as the game has quit and I need to reload it and log in again.

Most. Frustrating. Game. EVAAR.
