Be a little careful with your support because it will sometimes show up in interupts and, personally, it'd be a bit embarassing to have Dongs SonofDickbutt, Ardeem's Supporter running around. But that's just my opinion.

It was expected though as that's the same time Microsoft is dropping support for it as well.

The game will assuredly still work on it just fine. They're just covering their collective butt.

GameGuard is a whole other beast, though...

The conspiracy theory is that when Gearbox took all of Sega of America's money for Aliens Colonial Marines and spent it on Borderlands instead, Sega was too broke to spend anything on titles with less guaranteed returns than Sonic the Hedgehog.

The more probable theory is that there was some internal powerstruggle/bickering and whoever was the proponent of PSO2na was on the outs and their pet project got buried/forgotten until Microsoft showed up.

There are vendors to sell things to in the shopping area of the game.

In multi-party areas mobs will continiously spawn.

The disk shop and the costume shop never get upgrades, they're just there to help you get started. If you can't find what you want from a drop, you'll have to buy it from other players in the shop option at the visiphone.

Yes, layered wear clothes work for Casts, but there are still a lot of older clothes floating around in the Mission Pass that they can't wear.

Once upon a time those cutscenes were out in the field, or you had to walk up the NPCs on the ship to get them, which was good and made the world feel a little more alive. But they were also gated behind things like "kill 1,000 of this mob for a weapon with bad stats" or "Fight this rare boss whose event hasn't happened in months." And that was bad. So they took about 2/3 of the cut scenes and stiched them together into the story mode we have now.

For one point you should just wait till the free reset passes get sent out again the next time the game hits a milestone or something gets changed with the classes. If you've completly messed up your entire build, the "recomended" build will give you something passable, but not actually good for free.

Ok cool. All of my tier missions rolled over to super hard and I just started doing very hard so I probably won't hit level 20 before the new pass next week but I'll probably be able to finish the next one so that's good enough for me.

But speaking of tier missions, one is to defeat 5 rappies and it's stuck at 2/5 and I guess my definition of defeating rappies differs from Sega's because I don't know what to do

Nav Rappies don't count, the rappies you're looking for right now are wearing seasonal costumes and look like this at the moment.

Am I doing myself a huge disservice by basically skipping the story missions? I mean, I feel like I know what’s going on. There’s a couple planets, an evil force, the evil force is bad and we need to kill it but it also corrupts things. My allies are various flavors of anime, there’s a shy mystery magic girl, robots.

Right now beating them on hardcore is the largest source of Star Gems in the game, and there's a campaign to beat about half of episode two before the end of the month for a fancy cape, an emote, and 40 more Star Gems.
