    You say that now, but a week after the game's out everybody will be complaining that something is cheap or somebody is cheating. It's always the same with online gaming, only the DS' wifi infrastructure doesn't support the sort of patching and oversight mandated by the PC and derivative consoles.

    Online co-op and battle modes without friend codes would be awesome.

    In your heap, shifting bits.
    My excitement for the game is sadly short lived by the inevitable hacking and cheating that will take place. If you've played Phantasy Star Online for the Dreamcast, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Hell, there were codes that would reset the targeted players Dreamcast! Even still, I have vivid memories of being the victim a BSOD immediately following a boss kill, which resulted in me not getting items, experience, etc. It was a terrible experience... until I went out and purchased an Action Replay Disk [​IMG]
