While I am happy for this thing I wonder how will you access games which requires kssn and such because not all asian mmos are so easily accessible?

How can I start the game? I only get blank square instead of characters in the main menu, and I don't know what to do... it throws some kind of error, but I can't understand...

I forgot to ask something earlier.
I followed some guides to make an account and guessed my way through the download and install process.
I don't speak a work of japanese and I do have the time to learn but I'm too lazy.
Now I know there is an english patch but I was told on that JP sega posted on their website that if they catch you using an english patch they'll ban you.
They didn't really specify so I don't know if it's just your account that gets banned or if it's an IP block.
Does anyone know if this is true or was I told wrong?? (Please say I was told wrong).

At first I couldn't remember who Spunkify was but after hearing his voice I definitely do. He's really the only reason I went to mmohut. Good thing he's on mmobomb now. As for pso2 I can't wait to try this. Been a huge pso fan since I was 8 or 9 (I'm 20 now).

Just In Case Anyone Else Is Wondering About Where To Find The Patch. The Guys Who Made The Patch Rule, And Humbly Have My Thanks. Though The Game Was Fine In Japanese, Just Took A Little Bit Of Time To Alt Tab Back And Forth (in Windowed Full Screen) To Websites That Have Information, And Majority of Translations Down.

Enjoy All, And Thank You So Much For Doing This Spunkify, I Love PSO2, Well, All PSO Games.

For many reasons I really like the idea of foreign Fridays! Looking forward to hopefully a very long educational series for years to come!
Asia without a doubt will be the best region to feature online games from, but sometimes there is some nice EU stuff that could be worthy of an episode! Awesome new show!

Hi Spunkify, Thank you for the awesome video of pso2 ^^

Now I wonder where you get the english patch because your's seems like the best around.
Could you send me a pm with the info because I can't find anything on the forums either.

Thanks ;D

SNAK4ATER 11 years ago
Thanks for the first episode of Foreign Fridays. It was a great and very informative first episode.

The game looks totally awesome, i was a little concerned when you mentioned a little of the grind on the earlier levels, but like you also said, the game just looks like a blast to play, so a little grind wouldn't matter to me, i cannot wait to play it.

Thanks again for the vid.

rockandroll89 11 years ago
That was a great first show Spunkify, I can't wait for the next one. I was just wondering do you take requests, or maybe recommendations on what Foreign games you could try next or sometime in the future. If that's a yes than here it is: their has been a game from Foreign that I had not seen anyone talk about and I think it should be by time that someone did. Their is one game that comes to mind when it comes to a game that I haven't head much of besides of what I read online and not seeing gameplay at all yet. Hmmm O anyways, the game is called: Blade & Soul,link= ; the game company that makes this game is Based in Korean and yea I would like to see Spunkify give this a try and see what he thinks about it. Mmobomber's what F2P Foreign game do you think Spunkify should give a try.

Love the character customisation, probably the best one I've seen yet, although from this Foreign Friday, it seems like majority of the stuff has a "Asian or Anime" feel, which I'm sure won't appeal to everyone (I'm fine with it tho).

I'm curious though as to why the character customisation is in English instead of Japanese, unless you applied some sort of English patch for that particular section.
