Also I mean





Was this ever covered in some capacity? lol...

And I'm aware that Tales/Star Ocean/Wolfteam etc were all like that one thing or whatever once upon a time... but still..

...What about it? Am I supposed to be seeing a resemblence here? The Tales character there is obviously sporting a Joker motif, one of which has been done plenty of times before by both series, I might add. The other is just a mage costume with diamond-shaped holes cut into it...seriously, wtf were they thinking there?

Reasonably in the case of the former, barely in the case of the latter.

Checkers and Book-Skirt were something of a joke here at RPGFan, what was it, a year or two ago?  Felt like much longer ago.  Either way, it's like a meme that only gets 5 minutes of fame rather than the requisite 15.

Yeah, there's no shortage of terrible female character designs. Just look at the Nights of Azure series.

Calling that character "Checkers" was something this whole forum agreed on prior to SO5's release.  Then after SO5 came out, everyone just called her nothing, because we all tried to forget the game.  Cute nicknames only last when people like the game.

I saw a used copy of SO5 at one of my local game shops for $9.99. I looked at it and thought "Hey this might actually be worth picking up at this price" then I thought "Dude, don't ruin Star Ocean for yourself. You almost did with SO4." So, I did a hard pass on that. Lolololololol

Easily the best thing you did that day.

It feels like Star Ocean is becoming a running gag.  Every time, we get hyped up on the potential the franchise has and the hope/promise that it will be an epically interstellar space opera and not, well, pretty much everything we've gotten so far.  The Star Ocean franchise has so much potential, but it just squanders that potential every time.  I want to believe in the franchise, but not when it keeps crying wolf.

People got hyped about SO5? I do not remember that happening.

It totally happened.  At least here.  Many of us were very enthusiastic about it.

Star Ocean should have ended after 3 really. I don't like 4, but it's much better than 5. Maybe it's because I actually paid full price for 5 and not 4.

Star Ocean shall remain in mobile game hell probably.

Star Ocean 3  had the potential to get there, then that boneheaded, cop out of a twist came.
