So who else is looking forward to it? After the dismal failure that is Star Ocean:1 on PSP, this game seems to be 10x better.
Plus it will be a nice way to spend the time until Star Ocean 4 comes out (unless i decide to rebuy Star Ocean 3)

It was just so boring.....I mean, i was a die hard Star Ocean 3 fan (i even brought the 700+ page strategy guide, and read practically every page), and had about 90+ hours playtime. But i just couldnt get into the first one, the story was so predictable, and the gameplay felt like a cheap version of Tales of Phantasia or something.

EDIT: And wow LOL at my download, went from 94 hours, to 2 hours, then up to 226 hours, this might take a while

The only Star ocean I've played is the one on the PSP, and I liked it, but then I accidently skipped this one area and don't really feel like back tracking and going back to continue the story. Do you need to play the first one to understand the story line for the 2nd one? Is it still hack and slash?

Completely different time-line i think, but this one is way more refined from what i heard, and the difficulty is higher.
On a side note, i just finally hit 10%, my download time keeps going from 2 hours to 618 hours >_>, horay for 300 people leeching, and no one wanting to seed.

Ronyx from the first game is Claude's dad; Claude's mother is never mentioned but it's heavily hinted at who it is in the first game.

Ronyx is also in the intro and a few sequences, but is not playable in this game.

Well im 2% from finishing the download, and going from the comments on the site, it seems that this is actually the ISO, that and the fact the numbers on leechers went from 180 to about 400+ in under 20 minutes.

Meh... in my opinion, the First Departure was so mediocre. The battle system was boring, the constant random battles were annoying, the graphics could have been better. I'm not too excited for this one.

This is the one where they made an anime adaptation of it right? I loved this one on the PSX even though I never finished it because I couldn't find a save point somewhere late game. Really looking forward to it.

I just got home to a completed download! Almost as good as coming back from the bathroom to your dinner table and seeing that the food is already there. I'll be letting this seed for a while, and in the meanwhile, I'm gonna try this game out. I'll let you know what I think... if I don't get distracted.

I played Star ocean 1 on the Snes, year's ago.

I was waiting for the PSP remake version, but I got very disappointed when I saw the graphics were all remade and different.
The game lose it's primary interest (graphically the best game on snes). I wished they kept the graphical Tiles system and not a pre-rendered CG. Even the map is bad

I don't like this version.


Fortunately, Star Ocean 2 was already in 3D, so the game might keep it's visual and feeling.

I'm playing it right now. The beginning has a LOT of dialogue. I hate it when there's way too much dialogue in the beginning. Makes me wanna yawn. I'm sure it'll get better though.

    What's the point of "confirming" games you know will get released. Like Nintendo "confirming" a Zelda sequel. "We can't be sure Nintendo is working on a new Zelda game, or if a new Zelda game will ever be released, until they officially confirm it."
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "There is literally no way to know if they will ever release a new Zelda game, it's wild speculation until they officially confirm it."
