New pictures of Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope in high quality.
it's looking very nice, i like these 4 http://image.com.com/gamesp... http://image.com.com/gamesp... http://image.com.com/gamesp... http://image.com.com/gamesp...
Yeh this game looks very nice, like the visuals looks promising. only star ocean game i've played was Star Ocean 2; Till The End Of Time and that was pretty good. I see this game has simlar style of graphics pretty kool
I really hope this is good, I thought Undiscovery was a pile of cack, so I'm still waiting for a good RPG since the almighy Mass Effect and Lost Odyssey.
Looks good but my only question is, what about the backgrounds? It seems all these games now are filled with nice HD up close but the backgrounds are all blurred now, where's the full experience?
Have to admit even though the backgrounds are in most if not all cases blurry but there is no denying that those are some really really good looking screens maybe even the best yet from any game but that is my opinion.
They are good, but I wouldn't go that far.
I was blown away when i saw them! I wasn't expecting much from this game and now I'm really really impressed..
and the screenshots just have me looking forward to it even more!
Beautifull screens , and they are keeping SO style , i love it , where i will find time to play all these games?!!!! :0 Thx to share them :=)
Too bad the most of the Xbox Owners are not going to buy this game, because they dont like that stuff. Yeah, its not a lie that the most of the Xbox Owners are brainless Shooter-Freaks. Dont disagree with me, everyone of you knows it. I only bought my Xbox 360 for one sole reason, the J-RPGs.
360 has more of a selection of RPGs than wii or ps3 (not trying to be a hater on either console) and those games did hit good sales marks. i'm a fan of both RPGs and JRPGs, and judging by these pics, this game will sell pretty well, just like tales of vesperia. edit, (btw i did not click disagree.)
Yeah, its allright, but still, you may like RPG/JRPG too, but dont say others do so too, i mean, look at the Halo 3 Sales, i mean, thats just a plain shooter and sold that much. Sure the Xbox 360 has more RPGs than the PS3 or the Wii, thats the reason i bought one, but still the Xbox Fanbase is made of Halo-Lover.
but, "HALO" soled well because it's was an anticipated title, now gears and fable have become as well, and their not even of the same genre, same thing with mass effect. edit, (in other words, it doesn't necessarily have to be a shooter to be an anticipated title, that goes for all consoles)
Many 360 owners play love rpgs and grew up playing them. Just because Sony had them on lock last gen doesn't mean we don't like JRPG's. That's a stereotype and I bet these games sell really well regardless of the image some people have on 360.
Im just telling what i see with the Sales of some games. And really, i dont like see it that Games like Infinite Undiscovery, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon or Tales Of Vesperia doesnt sell well on Western Terretory, just because Microsoft thinks they dont need to make much PR about those titles. You are completely right, Games like Mass Effect, Bioshock, Gears Of War and Fable were selling fantastic, because they had a good PR. But Microsoft just uses the JRPG for Japan, they may release them here in EU and over there in America, but they dont show how great they are. Okay, there were some Inet-Advertisiment. But that just happened after a bit before it got released. They need to make up a hype about those games, especially Star Ocean 4! The same thing goes to Sony, they should advertise their titles more and more! Like i said, i dont like to see good games getting low sales, just because there were no PR. :/ €dit: Those who know what is good, dont need PR on Games, they buy it. But still there are people who're going with the Advertisiment. If Star Ocean 4 gets a nice PR it will sell like the double amount like it would without PR. Just 5 Months then we going to get this Masterpiece... I hope its going to be not so short! Want atleast 50h Gameplay.
How can you expect every single RPG that comes out to sell in the millions? The fact that these games don't sell a lot doesn't have anything to do with the console its on. JRPGs are a niche market. They generally don't sell extremely well. After Final Fantasy, and maybe Dragon Quest, the list of top selling RPGs falls off sharply. Don't generalize the whole 360 gamer base like that. Its just flat out wrong. A lot of 360 owners are multiconsole owners and have had PS2s, PS1s, and SNES and such well before this. And they are no strangers to this genre.
I agree only on my end, I'm more of a standard american gamer. I have tried to expand myself and really enjoyed fable 1, and mass effect but their very western anyways so who knows.
Microsoft wins the Tokyo Game show!
This game looks very good.I have been a fan of Star Ocean for years since the PS1 days.First day buy for me.
TGS and MS a console like x360 doesnt even exist in Japan. lol BOTS win TGS after seeling like just 670k consoles in 3 years Those screens look just like IU we have WKS --1080p and better looking and playing than all mega flop RPGS on x360
are you forgetting about White Knight Chronicles? besides i want one of those pink PS3's!
We will wait and see but Microsoft has not win until it actually happens. This is just one game. So may the best man wins. I'm supporting PS3
Although I am a PS3 only owner, I have SO3 for the PS2 and the story is horrible and the gameplay mechanics are just as bad, so some advice to 360 owners is to wait for the review and take the respectable review sites somewhat seriously
I can confirm this, SO3 was pretty bad, long ass cutscenes, annoying characters, (Peppita Rosetti WTF?), and the story was just retarded. The battle system was OK, but hitting the enemies was a bit hard. But Im pretty sure that they will fix all that crap, but still... I think this will be a 8/10 game...
I disliked "Star Ocean till the end of time" on ps2, the pre-puberty voice dubs, the mediocre story and the weird battle system. But this game looks damn gorgeous... If I had a 360 I'd buy it for the visuals lol.
the first and second SO were really good, only the third was crap...
sounds a lot like MGS4!
I don't care what other people say.Whichever console has the RPG series I love gets my money.I have always liked Star Ocean more than Final Fantasy also.
same with me, Final Fantasy, Star Ocean (i started from 2), Dragon Quest and Kingdom Hearts also the Tales Seires are awesome also there are many others, RPgs rule
The SquareSoft Final Fantasy's take a poop on star ocean.
@Final RPG Yeah but Phantasy Star on the Genesis was better than all the Final Fantasy games combined. $EGA
The problem is,FinalRPG is probably only 14 years old and has zero clue what you're talking about. Good comment.
All RPGs are good in their own way, each rpgs are different from one an other wich meakes em each of em good (cus of that diff people like diff franchises) and if they were all the same then what wud be the point of new rpgs to be relesed.
can't wait for TGS E3 2008 all over again ;P
Ick! What a gorgeous game. Now announce it for PS3 and I'll forgive you Squeenix! Anyway, this is looking great, but it will take far more than this to take TGS from Sony. :)
when it will open their unannonsed games.
May not come to PS3... Buy a 360, and you'll have the best of both worlds. If it sells well, it won't see the light of day over in PS3. It's all about sales.
jealous gamers going nuts with the random disagrees
This looks good if the image is ingame and technically thats not impossible now to do, may be hard but not impossible. I know most of the 360 users are graphics enthusiasts they will definitely go for this game.
Is there some dude with multiple accounts going around disagreeing with everyone for the lulz?
Two people actually.One is named Bloodmask and the other is named Nasim
Everything is for the lulz.
I only wish it'll be a step forward & not a clone of SO3 on PS2. I wish there were more RPG's like: tales of symphonia on GC, shadow hearts covenant & finalfantasy 10 (ff 12 is a step backward, imo)on PS2...and of course skies of arcadia on DC...there were good times for RPG fans.
Skies of Arcadia was a masterpice.My second favorite RPG of all time
W O W
But let's all remember the "graphics over gameplay / story" mantra, and wait for reviews before we judge this one. Though I normally wouldn't go straight to reviews to judge a title, the Star Ocean series hasn't been the same since #2, and thus I will be paying attention to review scores soley for this game.
...gameplay and graphics should go hand in hand. Looking at just graphics is like trying to have dinner with a very attractive person that smells like $hit and their breath stinks of used diapers. That being said it's a very attractive game and I cannot wait to see more. 360powah!!
wait a minute xbox aint supposed to be producing those kind of visuals
hope the graphics turn out that good in the game, infinite Undiscovery looked more better in the trailers and screenshots, but in teh game the graphics seem a bit messed up with harsh texturing wich makes the characters look a bit 2d sometimes (if ya get what i mean) Tri Ace arent to strong with their graphics
It looks just like IU Nothing impressive
FULL DENIAL MODE - ON looks like cahill is jealous!! FULL DENIAL MODE - ON your jealously is MEH! hahahahaha
Juuken,gamedev,nasim,and the rest of your asshole entourage.
This game will flop just like every other JRPG on Xbox360 this year and just like every other SquareEnix JRPG to be specific (this year)
yh thats all you can really say dying duck wat a twat
hey! hey! don't forget me! :(
STUNNING visuals right there. I'll keep my eye out for more.
Generic character design, sure (how many more blonde hair, blue eyed protagonists must we endure?), but visually stunning. Easily on par with White Knight Chronicles, possibly even better. Now to see if the gameplay is up to par, eh? :D
Agreed about the blond hair/blue eye thing...ack. As a Ps3 owner I'm jealous and pissed about this... so far the 360 has had a bunch of mediocre RPGs and I didn't care but this could be a loss. 12
on par with WKC? this game supports 1080p like WKC? the only video and pics of WKC that we have seen are from last year and look at Resistance 2 that the graphics were looking bad some month ago and look at them now, they look incredible. Level5 are class A devs, Tri-Ace are class B Tokyo Game Show it's only a few days away....
Ugh... Don't try to pull that one, okay? I've probably forgotten more about White Knight Chronicles than you'll ever know. But there's no disputing that this looks just as good as that - while it may not have native 1080p resolution, it DOES have an amazingly beautiful art direction that puts it right next to WKC in terms of gorgeousness.
im starting to get tired of japanese RPGs. Y cant they make games without using cutey pretty people.u cant even tell the guys from the girls. they need to grow up and make some mature looking RPGs
It's the staple fashion for RPGs. It's called a "style", as with how almost all western FPS games are really just a bunch of different shades of brown.
oh come on. u know im right. sticking to one style all the time like that? the girly guy thing is getting old. i guess u like girly guys too
It's not like FPSs don't stick to that same style. There's nothing wrong with that style of RPG - the whole point of it is to be as anime-like as possible.
so u want jrpgs to have characters like marcus, gordon free man etc???? basic boring ugly bad haircut character designs??? so ALLLLL games look like that??? naaaah i'll keep my realistic looking shooters and anime looking jrpgs/action games ur obviously the minority bomboclatt u just want the characters to be ugly like oblivions characters
Now, this looks like a next gen RPG!
but but the cell NO!!! loolz
well the cell have proves itself already; MGS4, Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, Heavenly Sword, GT5:prologue soon Resistance 2. if all that doesn't prove to you that the Cell's pretty powerful just wait for the 2009 line-up with GOD3, Heavy Rain, WKC etc. SO4 pics: this http://image.com.com/gamesp... = CGI this http://image.com.com/gamesp... = real time it has a lot of flashy colors and good art direction. that's all...
