Square Enix published some new Star Ocean: The Last Hope screenshots. Check them out.
I think this will be one of the best RPGs for the next year.
i think it will end up like the last remnant.
we get more info on this game than we do about FF13 , which has been in development way much longer...lol looking forward to this game hope it's better than SO3... and looking forward to hearing that the PS3 will indeed be getting a version later down the road..XD
nothing can be worst than that so signs point up for SO.
SO3 sold relatively well, but it was poorly received by critics.
I think that it's clear that the Xbox 360 has the best line-up of JRPG games **by-far** this generation. Start Ocean 4 is just another in a long line of excellent JRPG games.
I'm generally not a fan of JRPG's, but this game looks very charming.
to bad the best line up of rpgs suck ass
looks serious. I do hope it does come out for the ps3. I can see myself getting lost in a world like that. It really appeals to my sci fi anime side. I hope its good because despite my qualms over SE's practices of late they need a hit in terms of both quality and sales. I for one would NOT like to see them die off @JasonXE, ;)
Dunno about that, considering Star Ocean first departure got pretty average score.
I loved SO3, if the SO4 on X360 doesn't have technical issues (like frame rate slowdown) then its gonna rock.
its going to be a good game and I think Star Ocean The Last Hope and White Knight Chronicles will get very similar reviews
Unlikely the last hope will be hugely more popular for being a well known IP alone. regardless of game quality which although am still buying it White knight is abit buggy at the moment. Not to mention the battle system in Star Ocean and White Knight being worlds apart. White Knights battle style will be like standing still compared to Star Oceans. Disagree all you like unless you have played Star Ocean 3 for the PS2 you have no comprehension of what am talking about and your being an out and out Sony Nancy. Don't get me wrong am going to enjoy White Knight chronicles but Star Ocean 4 will make it look like a snail.
I played all the Star Oceans,, and I thought they sucked. Im not being a fanboy, considering they were all on the playstation am I right? This game looks alright graphically. The combat Ive seen so far looks a little too glamorous if you ask me. The action rpg genre really needs to focus more on the rpg part, because I would rather play a true action game then a half assed action game with rpg elements. Also, You say that WKC was buggy. Do you have the game or something? Because Ive seen hours of gameplay footage the day it was released and I seen no slow down. Not one time did I see any bugs, slowdown, framerate issues. Just a little bit of Clipping, and it wasn't bad at all. Ive seen worse clipping in Gears of War 2 and COD, and WKC is thousands of times bigger then both those games.
Star Ocean 4 Xbox 360s Last Hope In Japan.
last hope? you act as if 360's dead over there. its not. most likely will pick up when microsoft gets there act together over there
Xbox 360 JRPGs have sold better and been reviewed better worldwide. Xbox 360 == the home of the JRPG this generation. You == sad delusional toolbox.
I dont know Sqaure has floped on its last couple of games....what makes this any different?
O shush you dirty little Sony homo Square-Enix's Final Fantasy 13 versus and Sega's Valkryia Chronicles is the only reason I bought a PS3. Although I have to say I love diseaga 3. @below Infinite undiscovery also which is a sort of little bother to Star Ocean 4 but with no content and a broken battle system. And the most terrible game name but Square just released it as a quick money boost it wasn't supposed to be good. And although the Sony Defence Force so often loves to forget this The Last remnant is multi platform. It was just released to early sadly but if you take the time to play it its an enjoyable game.
what couple of games? The Last Remnant is the only RPG made by them
Blame Tri-ace if this fails, like their Infinite Undiscovery garbage.
Was the game that made me hate Square Enix. The music was pretty good though.
I'm anxious for this title. Hopefully they announce the PS3 port soon.
Same here I would rather have it on a Sony Platform just because of only having 1 disc and the last releases being Sony. But I will get it for the 360 anyway just because I love Star Ocean so much.
Last hope for 360 worldwide. Poor bots.
i did play Star Ocean 3 and I like the battle system but I had a problem with the confusing story and I like any of Level 5 games over Tri-Ace game
Yeah because Level 5 games are known for there "story" that's the worst part about them. I love level 5 games to but don't go kid yourself the Story just blows on Rogue Galaxy far more then Star Ocean 3 that had the weakest story in the Star Ocean series.
felt very refreshing playing it the first time but got very boring very quickly. the first rpg i think i never finished but i got very far.
this game looks sooo generic and cheap, like all those 360 S-E and Mistwalker jrpgs. Level5's PS3 game is no better, at least it's built around an MMO gameplay mechanic, so it might be A BIT refreshing, maybe... As for the jrpg we are all waiting for - FF13 - judging from the recent trailer and gameplay scans - it's shaping up to be the pinnacle of that generic-jrpg-ness
Level 5 does not have the greatest stories but at least they are easy to follow and Star Ocean 3 was not and I have not played the first two Star Oceans but I will get them for PSP and all I am saying is Level 5 has a better track record then Tri-Ace. My favorite Tri-Ace game is Radiata Stories which was great
Whats with those new screenshots!? Looks like a PS2 game and they make the old screenies look complete bullshot! Argh, anyway I'd wait for the reviews and probably pick up this game for my PlayStation3. Yea for my PLAYSTATION3 you heard me! This is just only a time-exclusive.
your a idiot, if you think those look like ps2 games, i just bought a ps2 for the rpgs, since neither the 360 or ps3 have any console selling ones out. and i have to say, KH2, and FF12, the 2 best looking RPGS are weak compaired to even phantasy star univers on the 360, which looks like crap compaired to this. just cause your pissed its not going to the ps3. dont come over hear bashing it. -nai- http://www.eurogamer.pt/vie... http://www.eurogamer.pt/vie... hows that look like this. http://ps2.ign.com/dor/obje... http://ps2.ign.com/dor/obje... -nai-
Nai, that's your opinion! And, at the best stupid and pathetic one too. I have no intention for bashing this game just because its faultbox360 exclusive(Time-exclusive actually) I can bet you on that. But you probably miss the point here because you ditch what I wrote! Where I was referring to the "new screenshots" looking like PS2 games then here you're posting all the nonsense BullShot of SO4! Furthermore you even pick the worst FF series for comparison(I love KH2 so I'd put that aside). Why don't you be man or whatever species you are and bring out a masterpiece that truly show whats the PlayStation2 is capable of? http://www.stoneschool.com/... http://www.thedjlinkdomain.... http://ps2.ign.com/dor/obje...
i went out and bought a ps2, and a whole lot of RPGS that i missed cause i sold it, and i have to say, i played SO3 when it came out... and that was along time ago, so i was expecting when i played it to suck, and im still loving it, so after they said SO4 will play like 3, im going to love it as well. any haters who dont like that fine, but keep in mind, you hate it cause its a 360 title, your loosing one great game. -nai-
If it turns out OK, i might get the PS3 version...
Yeah you're right, a year wait isn't that long.
The sony fans are hating, but I don't care. This and White Knight Chronicles, plus anything from FNC (FFXIII series for the uneducated) will make 2009 a good year for me RPG soul! Oh! And Dissidia!!!! WOOT!
Totally ridiculous. I bet its really hard to drive cars or ride a bike with such epic lobes sticking out like that. Frankly I think this giant ass ear trend in fantasy games is getting way out of line and it's all Blizzard's fault.
Squeenix needs to get rid of TriAce and just stick to making a couple of great games every 3 to 4 years.
