Looks great, one of my most wanted titles :D

Hopefully SE don't screw us Europeans over with a later release date.

En environments (like grass and stuff) doesnt look too good... but the characters does. I think japenese developers are much better on making character models.. looks more natural with the skin and hair

Looking good. I think this looks better than The Last Remnant tbh.

some shots look great...some look like they could be a ps2 game. A strange one this.

There is always one villianous woman, I'm guessing thats her.

No demo has been hinted at and I doubt there will be one.

I find this one a lot more appealing than LR.

Crap graphics, but i'll forgive that since it's tri-ace. It's tri-ace right?
Commented on 2008-06-30 23:02:33

The "enemi" rocks :)

I don't think it has crap graphics, and yes its Tri-Ace.

Looking at Screen 20 it looks like it may play like SO3 :O

Jolli: while the graphics are tolerable(meaning i could stand to play the game with them) i still expect more from games this gen, particularly when we're talking about devs this big.

Tri-Ace isn't that big though. Most people have no idea who they are and haven't played their games. I really couldn't care less about Star Ocean myself, but if this has half the personality of Radiata Stories you can count me in

You sure there won't be a demo though, Jollipop? Almost every JRPG has had one released so far.

This looks better than LR imo

they're a 100+ crew developer.
which is pretty large for an independent studio (they've always worked with Enix/S-E, but are independent) that doesn't handle publishing or anything more than just game development.

and define "most people". if we're talking about the general western audience, "most people" probably don't know anyone outside of S-E, so that's not really saying much.
they're pretty well known amongst those that know jrpgs (the amount of ppl this adds up to obviously varies from market to market)

Taken from gaf

Very extensive update today. They updated the world map, showing the 4 major regions in the world as well.

The Battle section is also updated with tons of more detailed gameplay specifics.


There are 6 party AI commands that can be active at any given time. Move freely, Split up and attack, Concentrate on one enemy, Stay behind and wait, Combo, and Conserve MP.

The Attack Point (AP) system is also explained in more detail, along with the Force system. I'll try to explain it in more detail because it's a little tricky to understand. You have two normal attacks (normal and heavy) as well as 2 battle skills that can be equiped at any time. Battle skills takes up MP, but normal attacks do not. At the same time, the heavy normal attack and most battle skills have "additional" physical attack properties. This can come in 3 possible forms - "knock back", "lift" and "knock down". This is when AP comes into play. The AP bar on the right has a "target" indicator which shows you how full the AP bar has to be, at least, before the targeted enemy you're locked on to will suffer those effects when you use a heavy attack or battle skill.

What does this mean? Say you have a battle skill that can lift the enemy into the air. If your AP bar is currently below the "target" indicator, you can use that skill to attack, and it'll take up MP as usual, but it will not lift the enemy into the air. If your AP bar is high enough, it will. So... why DO we care if enemies are lifted in the air, knocked back or knocked down? Well there are obviously advantages in gameplay as it's an action RPG and in these circumstances the enemy will be open to more combo attacks... BUT... the Force system makes it even more interesting.

The Force system rewards the player for pulling off combos (it doesn't have to be the main character that pulls off the combo, anyone in the party can do it, hence the Combo AI setting) on enemies in different circumstances. If an enemy if comboed while in a normal state, you gain yellow Force which fills up your AP bar (ah, so that's how we get AP), and as your AP bar fills up, it allows you to pull off the additional attacks as stated above. When an enemy is lifted in the air, all aerial combos will result in red Force, which is extra experience for everyone. When an enemy is comboed when in a knocked down state, green Force will result, which replenishes HP and MP for everyone.

Hope that helps!
Sounds incredible :)

Sure, sure it does.

Backgrounds look like a high res FFX and the characters are generic. Hopefully we'll get more Star Ocean media soon. Vesperia looks nice, too.

Generic my behind. The art is incredible. Nowadays it seems like people equate generic to anything that doesn't contain a spikey haired character with tons of zippers and belts.

Go back and take a look at FFX. A high res FFX? Yea.. no.

    droezelke @Sdarts: there needs to be a breakthrough in transistors before a huge next step will be possible. The next consoles will not have the power of a gtx980ti simply because of heat problems. (5 Hours ago)

    Sdarts ThouThough only a few people would be able to run it, even among PC gamers, which is not viable financially. Hence why I'm thinking of the next generation of consoles. (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @alimokrane: Yes, but I meant that even now PC can do so much more. If an amateur can do that much with an injector in 7 days, you can bet DICE can do 10 times better with the source code, engine, etc (6 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Sdarts: Of course you can do more with more powerful hardware. (6 Hours ago)

    Sdarts But at the end of the day, that's not feasible. Consoles is where the vast majority of sales are, so first we need more powerful consoles, which in turn will drive PC titles' technologies forward. (6 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @droezelke: Crysis 3 will be a 3 years old game in February next year, and it's still one of the best - if not the best - looking games. I agree AAA companies could do much more with PC titles. (6 Hours ago)
