As for the online mode, there's good news: Things have definitely improved since PSU first launched.There are many more missions available (including a new, currently online-only storyline), which immediately gives characters more options for monster-slaying and item-collecting. To go along with these new missions, there are now more monsters and new areas to traverse. A bunch of new items have been added, and drops and synthesis rates have been adjusted. There are extra lobbies to hang out in, including a casino with minigames, for when you just want to chill with other players for a bit. And, for those of you who love building your characters into gods, there are some new skill classes available that you can swap into- provided you meet level requirements, of course.
