Everyone knows that the coolest character in a video game isn’t the hero; it’s the villain. They get to wear cooler outfits, have master plans and let loose diabolical minions rather than sully their own hands. No Heroes Allowed! lets you do all these things as an 8-bit God of Destruction working along side the powerful demon lord Badman.
No genre gets more people online and blowing each other up than first-person shooters.
This week, SEGA released an application that will let fans pre-create characters for the upcoming PC/PS Vita MMO, Phantasy Star Online 2. This is great news for me, because with about one year before the game’s release, I might finally have enough time to make the character I want.
The software is in Japanese, but it’s pretty easy to figure out. If you really want to know what’s what, you can check out this guide explaining many of the options.
I love how you can pick pre-constructed builds for each body feature if you’re not looking to dive in too deep, yet you still have the option to fine tune minor details like chin size, or how pointy your Newman’s ears are. It’s a vast improvement over any other Phantasy Star title.
You can download the application here which also has a benchmark to see how well the game will run on your PC. Be sure to share with me any of your creations and tell me what you think of these two characters I made!
