I never saw anything before about the Gears2 price drop. Thanks for the heads up.

If any of you are PSO players that didn't like PSU much, Ambitions of the Illuminus might change your view on that a little. It adds a bunch of weapons from PSO, all the PSO levels (except Ruins, I think), and it adds Boomas as a rare monster in some of the other levels. Definitely worth a download for free. Hell, I still feel pretty satisfied with the 1600 points I paid for it.

Nice to see some permanent price drops on DLC; something they should be doing for older titles across the board as well as older Arcade games. I picked up a lot of these DLC items already, but how are the Katamari levels? Also, for PSU is online play free w\ XBL Gold or do you need to pay an additional fee like FF11?

Also picked up the Kameo power pack and the free PSU Ambition scenario. Got quite far into PSU but set it aside for well over a year now...nice little incentive to get back to it soon.

$1 DLC. Sold. Thanks op :)

I just beat the game a few months ago, and I was reading that the dlc shows up as a place on your galaxy map. does anyone know if I just have to reload an old save to use the dlc, or what would be the best idea.


i had the same question too.
I beat Mass Effect and my save is on the last boss.

How would i go about accessing the Bring Down the Sky DLC?

All of the game content DLC for BulletWitch was originally 20pts (with the costumes being free).

None of it is marked any different than it was when it was put on the marketplace.

"Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus expansion pack - FREE(was 800pts)"

I picked this game up for 4 bucks about a year ago in a bargain bin. Looks like a perfect time to check it out and subscribe.

Start a New Game+

You'll have to complete Noveria and the Citadel again, but BDtS is worth it. It's a rather decent DLC for $5, $1 is an amazing price. (This time around, shoot Fist in the mouth, and tell the Consulate that her gift's a piece of trash).

Pinnacle Station wasn't worth my time reading its title, let alone $5 and 2-3 hair-pulling hours of my life. Fucking Bioware -.-

It's fee based. If I remember right, it's something like $10 month and you only need Live silver.



I swear BW was 80pts per DLC, but I'll remove it.

So you have to pay an online fee to play the game or is it optional? In other words, does it offer an offline single player game without having to pay for online multiplayer? And if so, how is the single player game?
Thanks!

From what I've read, and it's on the box, you have to have an internet connection to play it, and I've seen some threads through google say that you have to buy the "license" in order to play. Unfortunately, I haven't found anything definite saying you have to pay the $10 a month to be able to play offline/

Same here. You can find the game cheaper than the DLC now.

The PSU expansion is online only. It adds nothing to the single player campaign, and still cost 9.99 a month to play. It does however make the online play more enjoyable by offering better weapons, more meseta, and better exp.

From IGN:

"The sequel to SEGA's dual offline/online RPG game in the Phantasy Star saga. Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus continues the exciting single player action-RPG storyline as a new Human Fundamentalist group, known as the Illuminus, disrupts the peaceful Gurhal System throwing the Gurhal Government into chaos. Using their custom-made Guardian, players investigate a series of single-player missions where they will meet familiar characters like Ethan Waber from Episode 1, and other new characters including GUARDIAN instructor, Laia Martinez. Gamers can now experience the wonders of the Gurhal System through the eyes of a personalized avatar – whether tackling quests online with a party of up to six adventurers, or fighting through the next chapters of the exciting story missions that started its single player experience in the original Phantasy Star Universe. Players will explore exciting new levels, such as the Ruins of Old Rozenom City and the subterranean Granigs Mines, where they will encounter new and more powerful enemy types and bosses, and master additional versatile class types."

Sounds like there's a new offline single player campaign to me...

PSU has an offline mode. Take on missions and whatnot. But, you CANNOT play multiplayer on the same console like the GC or DC versions. Single player only. My biggest problem is that the CPU sucks, they don't heal or attack nearly enough, so you will need to learn to do everything. I'm not sure if they still have the demo, which lets you play online for free, but they reset your character at the end of a certain time period (week or month, can't remember), but otherwise you will need the Hunter's License.

Edit: Looks like this was answered while I took forever to type this out at work. Oh, and in order to use your custom character offline throughout the game, you need to beat the single player mode entirely. In other words, your custom character can only go as far into the game as the Ethan Weber solo game has gone, if I recall correctly. Fairly, easy 1000/1000 achievements, though they will take a while to grind up to especially since all the rares are online only.

Final Edit (I swear): Here's the official PSU page, which makes it seem like it's online only, so I don't know what to make of it at this point.

Now playing: Gears of War: Judgment, Fire Emblem

Bring Down the Sky is worth $1, although it's annoying to try to play after you've finished the game. Really better ahead of time. I wonder if that Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey stuff is worth anything (especially since I finished both games year ago).

The price is definitely right on Ambition, but PSU ended up largely being a single-player title for me, and everything Google has turned up suggests that Ambition requires a subscription to play. Meh.

Yeah, it's basically just another mission, so it fits in pretty well and is pretty good, though trying to go back AFTER you've finished the game is kind of a pain (and wipes out your final save file...)

A follow-up question.

Which game save do I import when I start Mass Effect 2???

- The New Game +?
- Previous save?

If I start a New Game + (completing the BDtS DLC), will I have to beat the game all the way to its' entirety again? Or will my original game save suffice?

The ONLY one it seems to use is your autosave file. What that means is if you go back and play Bring Down the Sky, it'll overwrite the autosave and you'll have to replay stuff to get a ME2 compatible save. I found that out the hard way.

I didn't even KNOW there was a New Game + by the way :lol:

To clear up the PSU + Ambition of the Illuminus confusion:

Phantasy Star Universe has a single-player, story-driven mode; however, it does not have an offline "multiplayer" mode, like the PSO iterations. If you want to play a custom-made character, you need to play online, and pay the subscription fee associated with doing so.

Ambition of the Illuminus just adds to the confusion a bit, as there's two versions of the game: one for PS2, and the other for 360. On PS2, it received a full disc-based, retail release, which contained both an extension of the single-player story mode, as well as the additional online content. On 360, however, it's download-only, and only has the additional online content, with absolutely nothing added to the single-player side of things.

Hope that helps clear things up.

Correct.
