This is actually pretty cool, I was playing as a FOnewm and having fun smacking things with my staff and shooting fireballs. I also started off with a gunsword, it's a sword, then you press shift and it's a gun, that was also fun to use. Later I found this weird looking weapon, I couldn't read japanese so i had no idea what it was, when I tried it out I realised I was throwing card-shaped energy thingies at enemies, so that was cool.
I didn't really know what I was doing when trying to join quests, I accidentally joined someone elses party and quest and then later when I thought I made my own solo one I ran into about 5-6 other randoms wandering about the same area.

you don't have any invites do you? even if you have one; we can use that to get everyone on the forum an account.
each person that receives an invite from someone else also gets invites.

This was just the pre-open beta, the servers were only up for 4 hours each day(though they may have extended it an hour or two).
The open beta starts on the 21st I think, i don't have any invites bit I don't think I need them, should just be able to sign up on their site.

Beta starts on the 21st, you can sign up and download the client now in preparation.

Here's the link to the sign up page if you don't have a SEGA ID

Here's a helpful guide to signing up if you can't read japanese

If you want, add me on steam and we can play together.

Man this looks good at max settings on my LCD, seems it was designed with controllers in mind because I'm using my Xbox controller and it works brilliantly, also, I found an option to change all the button icon prompts to xbox button icons.

finally became un-lazy to try the open beta. its rough working through that moonspeak, but i got it done enough to run around, finish the tutorial and do a mission. There is so much i have no idea about due to the language barrier, but man its good.

Think I have a pretty good handle on the game now, pretty confident in combat. Thanks to a wonderful guide, I know what the NPCs want when I am accepting their quests and I blitz through a few of them last few nights.

Also, anyone waiting for the English release will be waiting until early 2013.

Was helping a friend get started, thought it'd be more interesting if I switched classes so I'd match his level, playing as a Hunter is fucking awesome, the whip blade thingy is so much fun.

A video my friend recorded while we were fighting a boss, Not sure what it's actually called so we just call it the Slinky Dragon for reasons that are obvious after watching the video.
You can see me running around making Ice everywhere and sometimes healing people in the background and a special guest appearance from Sleepy as an NPC.
