All Star Ocean Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
It got delivered to wife's shop (easier..sometimes) Awesome set Jackanape cheers for the find (y) game looks cracking on my X
I'm sorry for causing you marital woes. I took mine into the house and hid it before the wife got back from work, ha ha.
Tomb Raider turned up today. It is freaking massive. No sneaking this one past the wife...
Say no to Assassins Creed deal and feel all smug about my willpower....and order Tomb Raider (poo)
Ordered Tomb Raider. Love the statue, shame about the delivery charge. Heat added.
Nice price, but awful game, very disappointed. Worst in the series in my opinion, clunky controls, dreadful cut scenes. Did not like this game but heat for price :)
unfortunately guys this game lacks many features and Last hope is 10 times better. I've completed this game with ease, the main problem is literally is that it only really has 1 side quest from the main game. It's just so dam very basic and not worth your time and effort. However last hope is just brilliant apart from those stupid bunny races!
Honestly use the £8.99 towards the newly re-released last hope game instead, far better game.
haha indeed but I've come to accept this in SO lol, Till the End of time had some annoying ones too but they are amazing games. I already have it on PS3 but really want this version now. Was very tempted but need to at least get rid of my PS3 copy before I consider this lol. I've also heard the DRM is bad and to be avoided on PC version. Not sure why they went this route with it.
wonder if it is full 4k on the ps4 then as much as i like the game it has to have one of the most annoying characters in JRPG history and thats saying something!
This is the international version btw that was released on the ps3 I can confirm. So has all the extra content. I been playing through and love it. Can tell because of extra chests on lemuria only on ps3 version. Oh and you have the extra options too.
Really wanted a physical version of this on PS4, sort of let down by S-E. Still, I'll get it in 3 months when it's knocked down to £9.99 on PSN like Star Ocean 3 did.
that was the just the 360 version the ps4 was on one disc
It's been a long time since I played it but I'd say it's fine. Because characters talk over combat and important times and because you control the camera in cut scenes it loses weight in the story telling part. A party of 7 is large too probably to large. For cheap go for it though at least you can have it for a collection etc.
For £9 give it a go? Be warned that at the rate the price fell it might not be very good.
Same question ive been asking as well
Even as a standard RPG is it any good? Or not worth the hassle ?
For a star ocean game and from my perspective it's terrible. I never even gave anything post game a chance. Just feels like a step backwards all over.
Ohh it's been completed, phew!! :D
Back in stock. Reported for unexpiry :)
Yesterday was the weekend - give them a chance! ;)
Ordered yesterday but it still says pending.
Yes I think there is an element of fond memories, although I think that the story and character development have been lacking of late. As the technology gets better they seem to put more emphasis (and a lot more money) on showing it off. The reason people play these types of games in the first place is for a great story and interesting characters with depth I believe and they need to start getting these basic things right before anything else. I would happily forego any graphical enhancements and ridiculous battle animations for a truly great story again.
Back in stock at GAME for those who missed it: http://www.game.co.uk/en/star-ocean-integrity-and-faithlessness-limited-edition-1174639
Still not cheap enough for me.
They sold out, so it's now available from a third-party seller who charges a higher price.
Did the price go up now?
Good price! Heat. Thank you.
I enjoyed it. Took about 200 hours to platinum (have to play through 3 times) sold my copy to Cex on Saturday as no replay value after 3x completed :p
Just finished this two nights ago, pretty poor JRPG, awful characters and terrible plot. Cutscenes were so uninteresting that afterwards I didn't know where to go because i had at some point lost interest in the abysmal dialogue.
Fine price but not that good. I had high hopes myself but for an rpg it's just missing something. I've finished it but couldn't Be bothered to start again or even do post completion stuff. And I'm a fairly Hard-core rpg lover.
yea and at moment you can get both sword arts for same price
my bad it's £19 px so you would lose £1 if you don't like
It seems this one was kinda rushed and had a limited budget sadly
Read the Kotaku import preview. The game got slated. I am a big tri ace fan but this does not look good.
Wait i'm being thick, that's for the standard edition, my bad :(
£32.85 over at Simplygames, not sure when they take payment though
To be fair shopto is selling the standard copy for £40 which I pointed out in my description can be bought for £32.85 from TGC but GG is selling the limited edition which comes with steel book and is still £5 cheaper than shopto. Unsure what part of it is unclear for you? ;)
Yeah then they raised the price again, now its back to 33.99 No info about it yet but I'm guessing it would later, if this did have Collectors Edition I'm gonna buy that one :)
Anybody know if there is a collector/limited edition for UK/EU? Japan's collectors edition looks hot
I've had it preordered at this price from Amazon for months. Great price for a new release!
Didn't mean to spoil the deal mate. Amazon is just price matching Argos.
Do they do free delivery too? Also do they take payment now or at dispatch? I'd rather order from Amazon tbh
Just noticed myself. Will expire deal
39.99 here now
i just hope that all the other game are released when this comes out would love for them to bring the psp games to the vita and release till the end of the world on ps2 classic or even do a kingdom hearts and remaster them all for the ps4 Well SO2 is getting remade for the vita and ps4. Strange that they are not doing the first. Mind if its sales are good they might http://www.siliconera.com/2015/09/17/star-ocean-second-evolution-releasing-for-both-ps4-and-ps-vita/
Not much integrity to be found here... [img]http://i.imgur.com/jMrdvNN.jpg?1[/img] (not that I'm complaining)
**** missed it
How do people find these deals as i can't see anything on the play site that allows you to easily browse all games by price. The only way to search by price that i can see is to search by genre within a platform which is a hassle because it's not like i only have one console or only like RPGs.
seems to be out of stock
It's an awful game in my humbles and I love JRPG's
It's £4.99 :lol so you can excuse these niggles
Gotta b worth a punt for a fiver :D
I've heard the voice acting (and it) is terrible. English dub, no option to switch it off. Below are just a few snippets to give you an idea of what to expect: - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlN4E-1I80Q http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-oLBkSxrho&feature=related Still for £5, it's a bargain for jrpg lovers; another 360 rpg called Tales of Vesperia cost me 10 times as much as it was out of print and had to buy it used from ebay.
the price been like that for weeks now or maybe months.
Very good price. Not sure how good a game it is though
Direct Link: here
Cheaper @ Tesco, I'll expire!
I feel many JRPG producers need to start upping their game. I'm not saying Star Ocean in particular is bad or anything, but generally I find JRPGs need to introduce more comprehensive depth, stronger narrative and character development along with a lot more satisfying gameplay elements. Many of the next gen JRPGS no longer have enough to keep veteran RPG gamers happy IMO. If I'm gonna be spending 50-100 hours of my life on an RPG I wanna get to the end and think that was amazing fun! Not that was a waste of my life, which is a statement I've found myself repeating a lot recently with games :S I've still got Eternal Sonata to play and was gonna get through that first- anyone know how that compares to Star Ocean?
:thumbsup: youve obviously played it then! :-D
Hot deal but with so much to play already im gonig to wait - it will surely drop further by the time i get round to it - hot deal though!
Good price for a good game, this is a very solid JRPG. They are what they are, no need to change a formula that works imo.
i agree with most of the comments here i cant believe this hasnt sold that well so far. Either its totally underated or the JRPG is dying everywhere except....err..Japan! I got this for 17.95 also in the Zavvi deal a few weeks ago and its not come out of my 360 yet. Granted its no pick up and play title you have to have at least an hour to spare each time you play it as its quite slow moving but the battle system is one of the best. Graphics and sound are also top notch (apart from the slightly cheesy voiceovers) I too have now put in around 20 hours or so, and am still on disc 1 of 3, so no complaints whatsoever about value for money
Been in 3 Asdas this weekend and the games that were £25 are back to their normal prices, looks like it was an offer for just 3 weeks.
OK, fine. I'll be sure to return the favour to the anti-voters and not do you a favour by posting a bargain again. Meanwhile you've all put a copy of my post up to 65 degrees. :roll:
Reasons for negative votes? This is the cheapest for Fuel, Damnation or Battlestations Pacific, on or offline.
Damn I paid £30 the other day for Fuel. It's awesome, so well worth the money! But wish I had waited a little longer. Hot!

Is that the inFamous that currently gets 85% on metacritic? Something no 360 exclusive has managed for quite a while... so no wonder they need to keep implementing 'backyard compatability' on the 360.... not that this game has anything to do with this thread, still as you asked, so heres the latest figures from vgchartz...
Must of been the same reason why it happened to the higher rated Valkyria Chronicles then, it could be they have had plenty of stock or more likely that JRPGs do not fly off the shelfs like WRPGs(I.e Fable 2) it's no big secret.
