Last year, I started a marathon on my favorite game series of all time: Phantasy Star. It went on a lot longer than I thought it would, but I enjoyed writing all the posts on it all the same. The last post I did was Phantasy Star related, so I thought I’d follow them up […]Read More Sweet As Syrup: Phantasy Star Portable 2 Review
It may be hard to believe, but it’s been a whole since the anime adaptation of Phantasy Star Online 2 aired. Believe it or not, I love animated series based off video-games. Some of my favorites include the Viewtiful Joe anime, Bomberman Jetters, Megaman Starforce anime, and Sonic SatAM. The thing is, those shows were […]Read More My Thoughts On The Phantasy Star Online 2 Anime
I’ve been talking about Phantasy Star on this blog quite a bit as of late. This Phantasy Star marathon was only going to encompass the 5 Phantasy Star games that I played, but I recently played through a sixth game: Phantasy Star Zero. I’ve wanted to play this game for years, but only got a […]Read More Sweet As Syrup: Phantasy Star Zero Review

I find the characters and story to be forgettable thus far, but it still is a very fun time indeed. It plays like the old PSO, which […]Read More Played Phantasy Star Zero For The First Time Ever
It’s been fun going back to the Phantasy Star series for this review marathon, but sadly I cannot review Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity for various reasons. For one thing, the game was only released in Japan. I could import it and try to play it here, but I do not have a working PSP. […]Read More Skipping Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity
Phantasy Star, my unrequited love. I enjoy this game with every fiber of my being, but much like a dog who is annoyed when his kibble is switched out for a diet equivalent, I too am put off by this different tasting game. Phantasy Star Universe is a bizarre attempt to cash in on the […]Read More Sweet As Syrup: Phantasy Star Universe Review

I thought since I talked about the original Phantasy Star Online game a few days ago, I’d talk about the spinoff. I have mixed feelings on this game. I appreciate that they tried something completely different for this game, but to me it just failed to impress. It did have a lot of parts that […]Read More Sweet As Syrup: Phantasy Star Online Episode III: C.A.R.D. Revolution Review
There are some things that are special to me and one of those things is a game I cherish greatly: Phantasy Star Online. I loved this game since I was a child and I recently posted a review up of it. I honestly want to get people interested in this franchise since it means a […]Read More Relive The Phantasy!

This could be to reflect on the nostalgic bliss of the franchise they love, or it could be just to have fun enjoying something they have long cherished. To me, Phantasy Star Online […]Read More Sweet As Syrup: Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst Review
