Love the idea of seamless battles. Means the areas are going to be massive to allow for battlefields anywhere. Really looking forward to this one!

Yeah I'm saying it: Go eat your heart out, Tales.

Tales games always sucked compared to Star Ocean!
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

New E3 details!

> 6+ fighters?!

With the current trend, I'm expecting 7-8 characters.

SO1 13/14
SO2 12/13
SO3 10
SO4 9

I'm still on target with my estimate =P

Star Ocean 4 is Star Ocean's Tales of Xillia or Dawn of the New World. Take your pick.

Don't know. The guy said something along the lines of "...Featuring lots of characters, up to six fighting at a time."

Still better than any Tales game. Hey - you like to bash Dragon Quest, I like to bash Tales. Sue me.

When was the last time I did that?  You've also been an ass in about five other topics.  Who shat in your cereal this morning?  Or every morning?

Great year for fan like me: Tales of + Star Ocean. My favorite subpar decently and predicably mediocre yet super fun JRPGs. = My favorite games ever.

Still pretty meh on the character designs but the environments look great. Honestly, I'm most excited about the battle system. Having six characters all in battle at once sounds like a blast.

Six? We can go "beyond" six!

Not only that, but it sounds like that the producer is at least aware that something went horribly wrong with SO4 (though saying that they got up to 'halfway' towards western appeal with SO4 is being rather generous).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Inserting a childhood friend character, a catgirl, and a loli while another one of the main cast enters vaguely 'flirty' territory with her doesn't sound like they were appealing to Western tastes.  SO4 is better described as a 'fuck up', the tech demo looked way more like appealing to western tastes.

I do find it funny not even PR-speak wouldn't stop Kobayashi from gently tossing it aside though.

I didn't know much about this Kobayashi guy before he started talking about Star ocean 5, but I like what he has to say. The game was announced only recently and both him and the director have been quite open about what direction they want to take this installment in. It's refreshing compared to all the PR bullshit you usually get from Japanese developers.

Having parties of more than six active members sounds pretty ambitious, but I really want to believe they can make it work.
