Post 360 star ocean
Im playing the 360 star ocean right now and because the rom I have is a piece of crap I cant tell how different it is from the snes version. Has anyone else played it and can anyone tell me how bad or how amazing this game is. I love the 360 version so you wont change my mind but you may intrigue me into looking into the snes version and finding an actual working rom. Anyway the real question is which one is better the old snes or the new 360?

No ROM requests ever. Not to mention this is somewhat the wrong place to post this kind of question (Game Comparison).

Sorry, your writing isn't the greatest and I read it as a ROM request. So what do you mean by version? The SNES game vs the PSP remake? And as far as I know Star Ocean only had one version on each platform. I hope you don't mean that the Xbox 360 game, The Last Hope, is supposed to be a newer version of the SNES game when it's just another story. Sorry its hard to understand your writing.

EDIT: I guess I should contribute to the topic, I have no idea since I haven't played SO: The Last Hope yet. I wonder if there is a demo.

Also I just realized you are talking about a Bad ROM file, I recommend using NSRT to check it and see if its fixable. If its not redump it or find a better copy.

Last Hope is a plot prequel, the "first" Star Ocean story. However, it does make a *lot* of references to Star Ocean 1 and 2. Saying any more would be spoiling things, especially if you haven't played SO1 or SO2.

I played Star Ocean on the Xbox for about two hours. I got bored with the grindfest.

Same here, stopped playing after about 6 hours. Didn't really dig the battle system either. Fucking gorgeous looking game though.

Yes, and it was the only Square Enix game on the 360 that was actually good. It wasn't that bad, was it? Sure, the voice acting sucked (*cough* Lymle and Meracle *cough*), but the graphics were awesome and the battles I liked (especially satisfying for taking your anger out on a cheap, annoying boss). Also liked the Star Ocean 1 and 2 references. Oh, and Motoi Sakuraba's a genius.

And it's a tri-Ace game, not a Squeenix game.

Ah, my bad. I remember hearing that Tri-ace was formed by former, disgruntled Namco-Bandai (back then, just Namco) employees.

The battle system in The Last Hope was very good, apart from the fact that you couldn't lock onto enemies manually, which made it a bit awkward at times. Especially for the boss which kept spawning those larva things that kept killing my party. Vesperia's battle system is a bit more refined and diverse.

This game also lacked of good dungeon design and save points. I hope that tri-Ace can recover their act with End of Eternity/Resonance of Fate.

I hooked up my 360 last night and played it again for a good hour and beat the first boss. I still think it is a grindfest, there aren't enough save points, and the fighting system is mostly a bunch of button mashing. I shall continue on, though.

Maybe you fucking suck because the games a cake walk. You dont even need to grind. If you use back attacks your exp modifer always keeps you over leveled.

Did I say it was hard? I was saying it merely because the amount of fighting done is excessive. It is hard to avoid enemies in those narrow caves unless you want to risk a back attack.

So yeah, fuck you and fuck your mom. And fuck your dog.

I don't know why a person must defend a game even with it's flaws. The game was average but it still was a disappointment to many.

Hey, let's not get carried away here.


I guess the point here is that clessoulis should tone down his aspie-style outbursts.

It was guaranteed since the beginning due to the lack of "only on xbawl" logo (which is the double edged effect of that kind of logo, btw) and I do care (positively, especially with the slight polishes we'll get)... but wait for it, I'm getting a hunch of japan only.


Fuckers.
