Guess what I found...

Postby Wing-0 » Sun Jun 07, 2009 7:53 am

A Neiclaw!

Ugly B rank claw with two LONG ass blades.

Here's the description in the menu:

A claw said to have
appeared from a
dimensional rift deep
inside a RELICS site. It is
said to have belonged to
a legendary Newman

Six stars

So... Who was complaining that the more recent PS games had no connections to the old PS series and thus were not Phantasy Stars?

HERE BE A LINK!!!

Off to play moar...

Except thats more of a PSO reference as Nei Claw and Rika Claw are from that game, and with PSU calling the Rika Claw a Falclaw. Sure, Fal's her original name, but the PSU guys probably haven't played a classic PS in their lives and just went with the literal translation because, hey, who the hell is Fal?

That, and Neiclaws have been old hat in PSU for ages.

So it comes from PSO. What's the big deal?

It's a reference anyway. And the reason they kept it as Falclaw instead of changing it to Rikaclaw may well have been since they wanted to keep a standard... let's face it... the translations of the classic PS aren't that great...

It's a reference... How many PS characters have been named Nei? How many Fal? And if you argue about the sheer size of the thing, I may like to remind you to go and check the official PS4 promotional artwork... We get treated to Rika or Fal being equipped with a gigantic claw like this one... And if you tell me that claw is nothing new, well, guess what... I had never enountered that particular claw... =P

Addendum:

I booted Ambition of Illuminus for a quick check if my characters were still there. I pick my newman, go and do a quick run on S rank, and BAM... a Neiclaw...

DAMN...

In PSO it was a reference, but in PSU it feels more like they were just porting over PSO weapons for the sake of PSO nostalgia, which is why they didn't bother to rename the Falclaw for it's English counterpart. That's what I'm getting at.

I agree. Since there is rifts happening and such It looks like PSU is more directly connected to PSO than both of the online series to the previous PS games.

Yes, but that does not mean Rycross is Ragol. It is bring an access point(s) to the Gurhal system.

My guess is that the developers are just using the name for a fourth planet where the seed originate... That's all.

(In PSU at least)

Also, Rykros looks nothing like Ragol. How did you come up with that theory?

Rykros, as seen in PS4, was a planet seemingly covered in crystal formations that even had 3-4 tower-like structures composed (entirely?) of this crystalline substance.

Ragol, as seen in PSO (was there a planet of the same name in PSU?... I won't bother making a reply if the answer is yes. You can already guess what I'll say), was a rich, beautiful planet laced with a wide variety of geography. This is the main point on why it was chosen as the "New home" for the refugees in Pioneer 1 & 2.

I never did figure out what the big story behind PSO. I always think back to that, "Pioneer _ had a population of ______, but records indicate ration consumption at _____." which basically meant there were a lot of people on the ship who weren't supposed to be there.

Please explain to me why you think this is so.
