    I found PSO for 20 bucks new. I really want to get into this game, but should i just wait for the append disc? I hear that most people are cheating anyway...What do you think? Are there any peeps here that still play this fair and square?

    Any advice would be appreciated fellas........

    1) Play with either friends or those you trust. Unfortunately, the amount of character killing I have experienced makes me feel this is the only way to really enjoy PSO version 1 these days...

    2) It is a fun game, in a Diablo way. Some will really enjoy it and meeting new people (if it wasn't for the bloody character killing) is great. However, for many, it will eventually be "hack & slash and find treasure." But really, wasn't that obvious from the beginning?

    3) Version 2 sounds good as you can actually battle out with each other (under good terms) among other things. Cooperation and adversity on good terms is a good thing, no?

    I've been fairly lucky, I usually play with unknowns (that's part of the fun, ain't it?) and I haven't been PKed, guess since I don't have that much rare stuff there's no point. Don't let a couple of idiots ruin your fun. Plus playing against people from Japan is cool (good way to learn Japanese). I must admit though, it's just not the same as playing the game the first two weeks the game came out when everyone was finding stuff out about the game and people were cool to each other.

    Adam, it's up to you if you wanna get PSO or wait for PSOv2, PSOv2 has everything PSO has and more battle modes and stuff (the main bulk of the game is the same, with an added difficulty level after you reach lvl 80) but you also gotta pay $15 for 3 months on it. Eventually you'll probably wanna upgrade to v2 though.

    It's better...it's essentially an upgrade of Ver 1
    so why pay twice when u can only pay once?~
