Rumortoid: Star Ocean: The Last Hope coming to PS3?

I thought Star Ocean: The Last Hope was a pretty solid entry in the JRPG genre, and I have to admit I did enjoy playing an RPG in a space setting rather than the usual modern fantasy universe. The game was 360 only though, le...

Destructoid review: Star Ocean: The Last Hope
by Colette Bennett

Ah, another day, another RPG. It's easy to feel that way with all the genre's releases as of late (and it makes me a bit nostalgic for the days in which I would patiently wait through the months between releases), but Star Ocean: The Last Hope stands out from that group for one reason: the setting is not medieval or even in some fantastical invented country, but in space. Like Star Trek.

Funny enough, series creators tri-Ace have actually cited Star Trek as one of their main influences, and any fan of that series can surely see the similarities when your crew is about to throw your ship into warp or facing the impeding doom that only a black hole can present. Does The Last Hope actually come through and provide more than just memories of the great sci-fi of the past, though? Only hitting the jump will tell...

New Star Ocean scans with anime stylings included (for now)

I'm not sure if the news of the change to less "anime" faces in Star Ocean 4 turned any of you off enough to keep you from buying the game when it comes out, but if that type of thing doesn't bother you, you may wan...

The battles in Star Ocean: The Last Hope are nuts

Oh my God. What the hell is going on here. When I started watching a few videos found by Siliconera of Star Ocean: The Last Hope gameplay, I expected a bit of craziness in the battle scenes, but I didn't expect blinding chao...

Who cares if the last Star Ocean sucked: this new one looks f'n awesome

A guy trying to touch a girl while she sleeps. Super busty elf with laser staff. And a dumb anime bitch leaning in to get her head bit off by a domesticated velociraptor in a spaceship (above)? Wow, the new Star Ocean looks f...

More 360 bundles dumped into Japan, now with Resident Evil 5 and Star Ocean 4

I guess Microsoft thinks if they keep dumping Xbox 360 bundles onto Japanese consumers, sooner or later one is going to take, right? Well, I'd say that the Star Ocean 4 bundle -- which hits stores on February 19 -- has a pret...

I just had an RPG-gasm over this Star Ocean: The Last Hope trailer
