Does anyone else get really mopey after you finish something you're really enjoying? I haven't always been that way, but the last couple of years I've hated endings simply for the sake of being endings. I start to feel a little depressed for quite a while afterward and find it hard to start something new.

EDIT: Paged Mickey FYI

I am in an odd position where I enjoyed the game and yet can't argue against any of John's points in his scathing review.

moss Sophia

Star Ocean 5's twist is totally going to be that your childhood friend and possible love interest is actually an intelligent aggregation of moss.

And the villain. And the main character. In fact, the main plot twist in SO5 is going to be that the only thing that survived the ending of SO3 is sentient plant life dreaming of the universe before Luther happened.

Except it's not *really* sentient, because... well... SO3.

On a serious note, I didn't mind the plot of Star Ocean 3, particularly the plot twist UNTIL along came Star Ocean 4 with, while a prequel, plenty of references and homages to Star Ocean 1 and 2, but not even a single minor Easter egg to acknowledge what the universe actually is.

IF Star Ocean 5 also doesn't acknowledge the plot of Star Ocean 3, then I will be convinced that Tri-Ace has no conviction in SO3's plot and that game will be dead to me as far as the plot is concerned.

I'm happy to play these games and pretend I get the story for the sake of some fun friendship drama with a layer of Star Wars on top...but yeah I have no idea what's happening beyond broad strokes.
What is confusing in BBS? O.o The series isn't even close to being confusing until 3D.

Actually let's throw that into the unpopular opinions pile. KH is not confusing. :p

I actually agree. But I do also agree that the plot gets a bit muddled in KH3D, mostly because it's presented in a way that is needlessly obtuse.

XBox Chronicles (Because that's how I keep accidentally reading "XBC")

Finally further in to the game than I've gotten before. Right now I'm looking for Brogs on the Bionis' Leg to finish up the Refugee Camp sidequests. Every time this game starts to feel grindy, it does something to redeem itself. Like this time it was stumbling on the Giants' Mirror and watching as that giant spider crawls up the cliff one leg at a time. That totally freaked me out and had me running back through the ravine like I was Indie running from the giant boulder.

Armor in this game quickly starts to look pretty ridiculous. They waste no time with the RPG trope that is silly hats.

I think all of the Star Ocean games have had lousy plots.

I think you misread the title of this thread.

@Klutz64 - oh neat, I'm planning on playing the PS3 Ateliers soon, too. I would've started already, but I had the bright idea of buying them from Gamestop.com, so instead I've been playing the "on-hold with GS customer service" game for the past 4 days...today I even have to return Escha & Logy (in Shallie's box) to a physical store, because like hell am I paying for their mistakes.

Ha, no worries! With the pace I play games at, you'll be way ahead of me in no time! I take it you'll be playing the remake of Rorona? I still have the original so I didn't see the point in spending extra money when the additions probably won't matter much to me.

Officially abandoned once again my playthrough of Persona 3 FES: The Answer. It isn't even so much the lack of the social gameplay, after all I love a good dungeon crawler. Rather, the add-on fails to offer any kind of hook story-wise even after the first two dungeons. It's just hard to invest in something that doesn't want to promise any kind of payoff.


So I've started the project I've been wanting to start all summer (while still working a bit on XBC): Playing all of the PS3 Atelier games. I keep buying them because I like the art style, but the gameplay makes me anxious and has me constantly doubting my choices, so I've only even opened three of them (Rorona, Totori, Ayesha) and finished none of them. So now I'm making a determined effort to play through as many as I can.

they also butchered blitzball.


I know some people didn't like it to begin with, but I had fun with it in the original.

Hatsune Miku Project Mirai DX:

This game is too adorable for its own good. Hadn't played in a while, but it's always good for a smile.

I kind of want a gif of the first few seconds of "Animal Fortune Telling" as a good zerofucksgiven.gif

I assume we'll atleast get some colour swaps. Red Checkers with blonde hair, now 20% more slutty!

And you'll only get that after you kill 1,000,000 slime enemies, do exactly 314,159 damage to an enemy, overkill an enemy by exactly 64 damage, defeat the final boss of the coliseum with only Checkers, defeat the final boss of the coliseum with only Checkers at level 1, beat the game 5 times to unlock Beyond The Reaches of Time and Space difficulty level then beat it at that, find 100% of the game's treasure chests, and 10,000 other menial tasks.

Just jesting. No hard feelings, TRI-ACE <3

^ Different strokes for different folks.

I know a lot of the guys on here, myself included, have mentioned before that the usual GIANT BOOBS ALL UP IN YOUR FACE!!! does nothing for them.

O.o That pie is staring at me.

That's no pie, that's a Pokemon.

Xenoblade Chronicles -

About 10 hours in and finally leaving Colony 9... again.. I've tried playing through this game 3 times now and every time I get distracted around the refugee camp by another game. I do find it hilarious when Reyn asks when they're leaving and Shulk tells him right now and then I turn around and go back into Colony 9 for more quests.

I love the game it's just so daunting.

Good lord....so...tacky......
It's worse amongst a group of, y'know, adequately dressed people.  I don't care if you like sexy characters in your game, I have no problem with a sexy design, but goddamn that's trying too hard.

But hot damn that environment!
