Star Ocean: the Last Hope
aka Star Ocean 4
aka [II] Star Ocean: We All Wear Tampons We're So Emotional!
Anyways. Conquered the main part of the game (which is an absolute breeze if you take the time to fill your board with the +140% exp crystals). I can't believe the end game plot twists. They aren't bad, per se (my expectations were already on the floor...so...), just didn't really make much sense.
Isn't it kind of ironic that Faize would agree to join the same side as what he was fighting because he fell in love with a medieval hippie, with less than 5 minutes of talking, and he never even learned the name of!??! Thats rubbish!! He may as well go spoon Lymle illegally, makes more sense (and the Japanese audience would surely love it)
Then I went to showed 2/4 superbosses who is boss... me
Gabriel Celeste wasn't easy. The man takes quite a beating, and sometimes the AI enjoys standing in one spot.
Ashlay at the collseum was no pushover the first time. Fortunately, for me, he never really targetted the healers, and he's easy to dodge alone. Nice cameo though.
The Lord of Dragons (wonderful a being of such high stature makes it out to fighting competitions) is next...I'm only worried because it's all alone (colosseum solo Rank 1 boss).
I hear Ethereal Queen will make you want to never touch the game again. With what, a 20 floor dungeon you can't save in, and her 1-hit party KO attack. Fun fun.
