It ain't happening, folks. It just ain't happening.
Eagle-eyed Reddit users have discovered that the English-language site for Phantasy Star Online 2 has shut down, after five years of ... well, just existing. It used to be at http://www.pso2.com/us/, but that's gone now, and with it, the hopes and dreams of Magicman, the #1 supporter of this lost cause, have been similarly dashed.
In this sad time, let us not mourn this unquestionably breakout game that would have been totally different and so much better than all the other Asian games to come to the West and was absolutely worth carrying water for for five years. Instead, let us look back on the happier times, when we could all cling to a sliver of optimism, a thin thread of hope that fueled our wildest fantasies -- or is that "phantasies"? -- for half a decade.
So long, Phantasy Star Online 2. Now, how is Bless Online coming along?
