Playing it right now. Starts out better than 3 and already enjoying the characters more than 4.....

Only an hour or so in but its good (not great but good) so far.

And it supports remote play and plays well through it, deserves ATLEAST a 60 just for that.

 

edit:  I cannot seem to get the First Day DLC Code to work.  Get the Thank You Screen for entering it but nothing else. 

I didn't know it would have DLC

Tell me more pls

Bunny Statue - 20% more XP/FOL (money)

Valkyrie ring - ups atk, critical 

Book - increases all cure magic potency 

2 other items

Switch to Valkyrie Profile 1/2 battle music .



The reviewers are being generous with tri-ace. This game should be 40/100 max. Even Japanese gave it 2.5/5 on amazon.jp:

https://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%B9%E3%82%AF%E3%82%A6%E3%82%A7%E3%82%A2%E3%83%BB%E3%82%A8%E3%83%8B%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E3%82%B9-%E3%82%B9%E3%82%BF%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AA%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A3%E3%83%B35-Integrity-and-Faithlessness/dp/B015E13132

 

Dont waster your money as it will be 1/6 of its MSRP soon like the Asian market.

I pre-ordered the Collectors Edition on SE's site, hopefully I'll be able to enjoy this.

I'm still going to get this game, SO 4 was one of the most horrible things I ever played and it had a 72-74 on metacritic. Metacritic can suck my dick.

This is a fair point actually. No way this game is worse than SO4.

As expected. That's how much SO4 should have had.

Is it overcorrection? There's no chance that this is worse than Star Ocean 4.

My sentiments exactly. So whatever problems this game has, I doubt many of them will be the same as the problems I had with SO4.
Gonna check out some reviews later.

I dunno if that helps assure if SO5 is a good game. They also gave FF13 39/40, and I know how that game really is.

You mean a great game with a kicking ass soundtrack, memorable sequences and, albeit easy, fun gameplay system? Sure seems worth of 39/40.

I think he means the tunnel simulator (until Grand Pulse, a.k.a. 30-40hrs into the game) with an awesome soundtrack, memorable sequences often for the wrong reasons, no towns to explore, and a chaotic battle system. ;p

Im combat your allies standing behind you off screen would cast spells that fly over your head past you and you often can't make out if that was a Firaga that flew past you to the left, or a Ruin that flew past you to the right, and whether or not any of them hit an enemy weakness, or how much damage they did, etc, all in a short moment while you're focused on your own actions at the exact same time. And the blocking sequence could look like this: L1 (Paradigm shift), Up, Up, Up + X (select Sentinel). Now that's an intuitive thing to do in a split second while Bahamut casts Megaflare on your party that's about to hit in two seconds... (In XIII-3 blocking was never further away than two inputs.)

And in spite of all that, that game was nowhere near as bad as SO4, and I didn't actually feel like I regretted playing it and that I had wasted part of my life, as I did with SO4. It's hard to imagine SO5 being worse than SO4 for me personally.

How is it xenophobia if i point out that most reviewers are from western countries while japanese reviewers are absent like Famitsu? 

There were quite a lot of people in this thread who openly said they are going to cancel their pre-order or prospone the purchase. So its clearly a lot of people do listen to these reviewers, western reviewers. 

You have long since displayed a spiteful attitude towards most Western games and devs, favored Japanese games, devs, pubs and systems easily over anything Western, that type of attitude towards a different side of the world is a case of xenophobia. I've yet to find anyone else on this forum who displays the exact same attitude and behaviour as you towards the entire Western world.

If there are no Japanese reviews for the Japanese game then simply blame those people, not the West, don't even involve the West in something that has to do with Japan getting their reviews out and their shit together.

Listening to a few reviews alone isn't what you should be basing your purchase on entirely, I go by extensive (not shown just by trailers) gameplay footage, price points, all sorts of reviews, not just only the big sites, I go by certain youtube reviews as well since they tend to go in depth to places that big reviewers tend to skip. I basically do my own research before buying a game, big name reviews alone don't even begin to suffice, so those relying only on meta can do what they do but personal research and using more sources of input are better than one source.

Also some people here have decided to cancel their *pre-order*, that isn't to directly say they will never ever buy the game and even then this forum is but a very tiny fraction of people who would/wouldn't buy the game vs those outside this site around the world.



Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"

Switch to Valkyrie Profile 1/2 battle music .

I dont even get past Step 5.  Never get to a screen for Download. 

Just the thank you for putting in the code and I hit Continue. 

Thanks for the list.  I also did the DLC stuff prior to playing the game, have stayed at inns since with no luck. 

Ill do it again and throw up an update.

Oh, and Im kinda digging the game the more I play.  Battle System seems a bit more sluggish than Id typically like and the Environments rather ugly...and it doesnt seem to bother me at all.

Check your key items tab. You should see a bunch of key items that say when you sleep at inn you get em. If those are not there then you have an issue
