I agree with you Eusis however I've been spoiled enough times throughout my lifetime that I wouldn't want to do it to someone else.

I thought after *the giant spoiler* you switched to a more modern planet.


You do, but it's only a very small portion of the game. Most of it is spent on "bumfuck planet" and
Code:
they even force you to go back there come the end of the game.


Yeah.  It also kinda sucks that on the modern planet, once you finish your little session on it there's little reason to go back outside of the fighting tournament thing.

But the promise of sci-fi, futuristic stuff, and the exploration of space has always been in Star Ocean games, and all of them (1, 2, and 3) have blue-balled us on this and stuck us on backwater bumfuck planets for the entire game.  I hope Star Ocean 4 makes good on its promise of interstellar travel and more sci-fi futuristic stuff.


Totally agree on your points.  Great games but missing out on their primary advantage and promise.

Yeah, I admit I understand that it's better safe than sorry, and if it's safe (or someone's a jerk) it'll be revealed right away anyway. :P

With that said, it's not that I feel all things should be laid out to know what to expect, but there's things meant to be surprises then things that are kind of just the basic premise. Some things that fall under the basic premise are fun to find out quickly, but this really isn't one of those.

Theres a scan with the chick too, she's pretty, better than her male counterpart.

Fan Girl moment: he's the first male protagonist who ISN'T 19.  He's 20! =D

True, however playing SO2 wasn't so bad for me, because they bearilly give you ANY time to think that it's going to be a space opera. After only about 3 minutes, you're whisked away to a backwater planet, and spend most of the game there, only to be wisked away to another (though more contemporary) non-sci-fi planet. In fact, after not having played SO1, when I played SO3, I was pretty shocked to find that they dangled the space opera thing in front of you for so long, and yes, it hurt the game severely.

I enjoyed SO2, I hated SO3 for that very reason, among many others. SO2 just felt like a medival fantasy with a very basic sci-fi framing. SO3 was this weird sci-fi/medival fantasy/cyberpunk hybrid that couldn't decide what it wanted to be, and was severely weakened by that fact.

One moment it's Xenosaga, the next it's Tales of Symphonia, the next it's .//Hack, WTF?!! Weak game.

The introductory FMV in Star Ocean 2 showed spaceships and stuff so the promise of a sci-fi adventure was there.  But as usual, the series cockteased us.  

Still, the best part of SO2 for me was the Iron Chef mini-game.  That's what got me into the Iron Chef TV show.  Whether it's Iron Chef or Iron Chef America, I still love to watch it.  

With SO3, at least Nel was hot.  

I'm not completely sold on that SO4 male character design, especially that outfit.  It looks like rather old-fashioned clunky medieval.  This makes me think "oh great, another medieval backwater thing."  I want a sleek cybersuit, dammit!

It's all speculation, though it does seem logical for SO4 to be a PS3 exclusive, considering Infinite Undiscovery is a 360 exclusive.

I dunno. Granted the Star Ocean remakes are Sony exclusive, but I get the feeling that this could be multi-platform.

Losfer's right though. Just announce the damn platform already.

Or Infinite Undiscovery might go the way of Eternal Sonata.
I dunno.  It could also be about who they're really trying to appeal to.
