You forget unnecessary garter belts that hold MORE guns.


o shit sorry the fact that i forgot her favorite lacy thigh highs is unforgivable i mean how else are women supposed to know it’s OKAY to be super feminine in a way that appeals to men’s fetishes?? feminism is about empowering women to dress how ever they like, ESPECIALLY fictional ones designed by men :)) #realfeminism

Person: what are you doing?
Me: not reading the work of a stranger on the internet interpreting the relationship between the protagonists of an established media series by thrusting them into unrealistic situations in which they for some unknown reason have intense gay sex that's for certain

The only one who can save the universe

Anonymous sent: the best part about pso2 is that you'll never HAVE to use arks cash to get any of the costumes or weapons. you can buy any costume from a player shop (though they're likely to be expensive as shit) and you can find ANY rare weapon in the game by killing enemies (though it'll likely take a long ass time. i've got 800+ hours and have never found a single 11 star weapon.)

Thanks, anon, that’s good to hear! :D I actually went and looked up costumes in the player shops after getting your message, and while the female costumes are pricey (100,000+ meseta, at least) it’s something I can see eventually earning.

I feel like abysmal drop rates are just par for the course when it comes to the Phantasy Star Online games. I spent years in PSU hunting for an Amore Tippies board. :S

Some more beginner junk in PSO2…

1. I love the combat so far! The versatility in movement is a lot of fun, although I do wish it was a little tighter and more responsive—jumping feels a bit loose and floaty, and the pauses between dashes means you can’t really chain them together which would be AWESOME. I hope there’s some way to address the second part through leveling up/skill point distribution, but I don’t think that’s possible.

2. I really liked that player’s outfit, especially the floaty flowers. I think you have to use Arks Cash to get all of that stuff, though…sigh. 

3. Other things I like: Having to drop into the pool of water(?) to teleport to the planet. It’s a much more interesting visual than simply walking through a door or using a teleporter.

4. So uh, what is the G A S and Aika show supposed to be about? Like…it looks like a comedy show? I was hoping it might have some references to Skies of Arcadia because, you know, Aika, but uh…it doesn’t look like there’s any other connection besides the name. 

5, 6. Just some ‘My character and these environments look cool’ shots. It’s kind of amusing that there’s always enough of a breeze to stir your character’s hair dramatically. :P


Does this bedroom look like a dream come true or a saccharine nightmare? Either way it’s complete kawaii overload. A bright and disorienting “swarm of neon-colored cuteness.” Entitled Colorful Rebellion — Seventh Nightmare, the room is an immersive installation created by Japanese artist Sebastian Masuda.

"This installation, which filled the Kianga Ellis Projects in Chelsea, New York earlier this year, features a room bursting with manufactured objects of cuteness, including bundles of fake fur, stuffed animals, plastic jewelry, girl’s hair accessories, dollhouses, and other colorful toys that completely cover the walls and ceiling of the room. In the middle of the room is a bed, which visitors could lay upon and gaze up at the explosion of “Harajuku kawaii” closing in on them from every direction.”

Harajuku is an area in Japan known as a hub for Japanese youth culture and fashion. Fans of Japanese street fashion gather to show off all sorts of distinctive and outrageous styles. Masuda recognizes that this is sometimes much more than a flamboyant hobby. It’s often a vital coping mechanism for youth in Japan.

"One must understand that in Japan, therapy and psychological outlets are not as acceptable as they are in the United States," Masuda explains in his artist statement. "The majority of the time, these girls do not fit in with their classmates and community. Harajuku is not only a place where they can be different without consequence, it is also a place that provides fashion alternatives for girls to express dark emotions in flamboyant, alternative styles."

In addition to being an artist, Masuda owns a Japanese boutique called 6%DOKIDOKI and has been very influential in popularizing kawaii culture, both within Japan and around the world.

April 2014: Horrorscopes for thefreshzine

More of my day as a beginner in PSO2—I’d worry about cluttering the PSO2 tag, but it seems pretty dead, so…

…it’s time to be really excited about GETTING SPARKLY WINGS. I thought they were a customization/costume item, but they’re actually an armor piece for low-level characters. woooo! (they even match my costume color, mostly)

Got some rare stuff to drop too, although given my level it’s rather unlikely that it’s genuinely rare :P I think I have to give the unidentified box to the item identification counter to make it useable, and the wand (rod?) is lost on me since I don’t plan on playing a teching class, but at least…rares are rares?

On a final note, I loooove the Wire Lancer weapon. Whipping around chain whips with blades at the end is…deeply satisfying.

I finally started playing Phantasy Star Online 2, after giving up on an official NA/EU release. And I’m reminded of how much I love PSO’s ridiculous ‘space fantasy mixed with japanese teen fashion trends’ aesthetic. Seriously, what the hell is everyone wearing?

Oh, Phantasy Star. I missed you. <3
