How was this game?
Fucking terrible. Fiore and Anne are hot though.
Awful. I feel bad for the witch bitch.
>>454539363Fiore? What happens to her?
Certainly mediocre. Worth a playthrough if you are a fan of the series though. Trying to 100% it would try anyone's patience though, do not recommend.
>>454539671Even as a fan of Star Ocean, I couldn't stomach the god awful stiff feel of combat in this game. 4 might have had absolute cancer characters but at least the combat was still solid and felt good. I don't know how they fucked up 5 so hard.
Had a shitton of potential with the party system, ended up being underwhelming in all aspects
>>454539590She's stuck in a shit game.
>>454539009I was thinking of going for the platinum in this a while ago, but then realised it would take 3-4 playthroughs minimum with unskippable cutscenes. I also don't like savescumming for good gear.
Are any of the star ocean games worth playing? If so, which ones? I have tons of jrpgs on my backlog and probably won't get to all of them before I die so I need to prioritize.
>>454540942The PSP remake of 2 is good, otherwise no.
>>454539009Super fucking average but unbelievably short for a Star Ocean.
>>454539009to put it short, the last hope is a master piece compared to this.
>>454539009Not good. It's actually pretty sad since it sounded like Tri-ace knew what they were doing during development interviews.
>>454540942The remakes of 1 and 2 on psp are pretty solid
>>454539009Atleast none of the characters were extremely annoying, is all i can say. I did find it neat having every party member in battle
>>454541110>>454541663No. Stop being gay.>>454540942The first three are all worth playing, 2 on Playstaion, not the remake, in particular. 3 is very noice too.
>>454542674The remakes literally have extra content, though. They're objectively better in every way.
>>454543097>They're objectively better in every way.Except for the drastically inferior art, scaled back graphics, a dub that's every bit as unconvincing as the original yet has not even a tenth of the charm and comedy factor, casualised combat system and no doubt a few more changes for the worse that I've forgotten about out of pure disgust. But none of that matters, huh. It's got more 'content', and that's what matters, eh?
>>454539837They aimed 5 at the western audience.
>>454544969No they didn't. 4 was the one they aimed at a Western audience, it had a generic Star Trek inspired cover, released on the 360 exclusively at first, and used CG portraits until the PS4 release where they gave them proper anime portraits.5 was always touted as being a return to form pre-release. One of the developers even said SO3 was a big inspiration for it. And he was fucking lying through his teeth.
>>454539837I could take this comment seriously but when there's people who like xenoblade 2 combat style i just say no fucking way this is true.
>>454545926What the hell does Xenoblade 2 have to do with anything? One is turn-based, the other is an action RPG. And for an action RPG, SO5 has shit combat that made me drop the game.
>>454545759Those development interviews for SO5 straight up hurt to read now. The game sounded great and on-track during interviews and then it was flaming garbage. It sounds like Tri-ace might get another shot with SO6 due to the mobile game doing fine.
>>454546516All the development stuff had me hyped as fuck, it looked great. Star Ocean has to be the most wasted potential in the JRPG genre. It can be an amazing sci-fi adventure with a cute anime style but each game always has a massive flaw.
>>454545926Xenoblade 2 has pretty satisfying combat to be honest with you my familam
Star Ocean 5 is by far the worst buyer's remorse I've had in years, and fuck you faggots for going into the Tales threads saying it would be any good.
>>454539009I played for a few hours and just couldn't get into it. The cast didn't really interest me except Anne (mainly because she's the puncher) but I couldn't even make it to her. That was almost 2 years ago. I'll probably try again sometime. I mean it's Star Ocean, I want to like it.
>>454539837I didn't even make it halfway through 5 it was just so god awful and half assed. Even the story parts were awful since there wasn't even cut scenes but instead just looking at my character through the normal camera while they talked.
>>454546831Phantasy Star is the better Sci-fi Fantasy Rpg.
Still mad about the diaper.
>>454548073Yeah but Phantasy Star is either old turn based games or an MMO that never got localized. Star Ocean scratches the ARPG itch.
>>454546108>>454547092Xenoblade 2 combat style is a mess and it looks like this one,but nintendick suckers says is shit for the same reasons,why would i take it seriously when the shitposting is obvious?
>>454546831It sucks that there's no real scifi JRPG series to play anymore. Everything's back to basics fantasy now.
>>454544359>a dubThere's an option for original voices, I have never suffered from forced American voices not even once
>>454544359>ArtMad the tomboy looks less so now, right?
>>454548449You never played Xc2 or any xenoblade game at that matter
>>454551296He's trying to shitpost and start a console war, ignore it.
Do not get it Anon. It sucks the soul out of you. It is that fucking bad. Half the plot is >Loli gets kidnappedAt one point you go in to a base to save her, you come out of the main entrance after finding her and she gets kidnapped again.They only good thing about it was the DLC battle music from VP1 and 2.
