So we don't keep taking the Final Fantasy XIII thread off topic with the Star Ocean love, here's a thread for all things Star Ocean! Appropriately enough, I'm currently working on finishing off Star Ocean Til the End of Time, aka Star Ocean 3, and have completely finished Star Ocean First Departure. I've also won Star Ocean Second Story (PS1 original FTW!) though I never did get around to tackling the optional dungeons. I'm aiming at finishing every single secret dungeon on Star Ocean 3, even the inevitable god-moded monster that is Iseria Queen. Overall, three games and three hits. The battle system is always a blast, being more of a real-time action battle system. It's also one of the few RPG series out there to go with the full-on sci-fi plotlines, although it's still set on fantasy worlds. Tri Ace is probably one of my favourite development teams out there. They always seem to come up with a battle system that is very fun to play. That's what lies at the heart of the Star Ocean series - fun, pure and simple.
