And on that note, from what I've been hearing, Star Ocean 5 is going to have slow, unskippable, realtime dialogue cutscenes to go with the 'everything is in real time' gimmick of the game...excepting the regular cutscenes which are not in real time and still not skippable in any way. And this includes a few real-time dialogues, that segway into regular cutscenes, that come before battles you'll probably lose due to bullshit like a shoddy battle camera, poor AI, bullshit escort quest failure conditions (on a character who's utterly prone to ending up in escort quest failure conditions) and a swarm of enemies ready to dogpile your escort quest character in the blink of an eye.

From what I've heard, it sounds like it might be a small mercy that SO5 will be a short game.


Well, I'm happy I got a spiffy looking CE to help the pain.

Support your local Dice (and pitch her ideas)!

Did they include the DVD in the US as well? I thought it was exclusive to the European version, because Xenosaga 2 was the only one of those games that was released over here.

The box even says something like "Don't worry! X1's Cutscenes on bonus dvd!" But yeah, it's totally incoherent.

I have it. It was a bonus if you preordered XS episode 2.

XS ep 1 is my all time fav game so I have no problem with long cutscenes as long as they are good.
