So has anyone played this yet? It's actually surprisingly fun. It's kinda like a simple PSO mixed with Zelda? I dunno but it's very charming and cute and fun to get a group together and just kill crap.

I LOVE SPIRAL KNIGHTS

I can't play it as much as I'd like though. Stupid Energy restrictions and the ever inflating cost.

Feel free to add meh: Kiyobi

It is. Soloing this game is boring very fast.

Also a bit difficult and it feels unrewarding.

I heard about this on Ars Technica during the closed beta, they even gave away 50 keys when the article ran. I really enjoyed PSO but never had the chance to play it online so if this game is in the same vein, I might give it a shot. It's nice to see Sega supporting smaller devs, even if they aren't making the most of their own in-house groups.

I'm hooked. Which is a problem considering the whole "energy" system.

The music in the trailer is the music heard in the game (The Battle themes and Haven city music if I remember correctly). So cool :D

Yeah I've been playing it, catch me as Lorenith if you can I guess?


If you find you can't afford the trade rates for crowns>crystal energy and don't want to use real cash to buy some, there are a few ways to help a bit.

Mainly by using less energy, the loot doors are very rarely worth it so don't bother opening them. Be wary of danger rooms, and if able let a friend revive you rather than using energy (as a general rule if you are energy reviving you shouldn't do it more than once or twice, it's more efficient to just lose all your heat and start over).

Just doing that can save you alot of energy, and that is often all the difference between finding enough crowns to trade for 100 more CE to keep playing.

Edit: It's also worth noting that you can't "friend" people as far as I'm aware without being on the same screen as them, it's like that in other OOO games as well. So if you guys all start playing you'll want to set up a meeting area to friend each other.

I gave it a shot. You can probably figure out my screen name, if I choose to play it again.

I can see this energy thing is a real problem. I used all of it going down several levels, and I had fun with it, but... Man, I don't know how much fun I'd have with that game if the energy issue becomes a serious problem.

But I'm looking back on it and thinking that I was enjoying myself, and it wasn't as horrible of a timesink as other online games.

NeoForte managed to friend me while I was offline. o.o

I guess I'll have to go poke at the wiki to figure out how to do that, cause there is no obvious way to do it. (oh I figured it out)

If you don't like the microcurrency, you may as well get used to it because OOO has found this system to work best for them in terms of player #'s and revenue over the years and it isn't going to go away. Although they may tweak the energy cost associated with some things.

It appears that energy has stabilized at around 3600 crowns, or it's been sitting about there for almost a week now.

3600?!
It was like 2500 last week!

BTW, on a side note, I don't think I'll be playing for the next couple of days. I'm putting my mist EN up for free if you guys wanna craft something.
I can craft:
Calibur
Blaster
Shadowtech Alchemer
Cobalt Armor Set (Helm and Armor)
Magic Hood
Jelly Shield
Owlite Shield

These are all 2 star weapons, so if you wanna get into Tier 2, you might need some of these. Let me know if you guys are interested. Just spot me the materials and crowns, and I'll provide the energy.

I have a bunch of materials that you can simply have if you want to save yourself the trouble farming and get into T2 faster.

All I gotta say for now is Fuck the graveyards. :)

Other than that, it seems like a neat game. I'm playing as Garianse so feel free to add me :)

Name's Jayshen on the game, so far it's fun, but I kinda hate the limited dungeon crawling we get.

Insert signature here.

Yeah, graveyards are retarded.

Having an elemental type sword helps. Or one that has Undead bonus...

But other than that... THEM RED BUGS
