Still, I wish they rerelease the others. Specially with the PSP store closing down, getting the first two games will become just about harder. Whether remake or original, though I think SO2 original is in the PSN, I think.

I have them both on the PSP in hard disk version. First Departure, a remake of the SNES-era SO1 in the engine of PS1's SO2, was recently ported to the Switch with a few additional art enhancements called First Departure R. I picked it up on sale for $10USD but haven't been able to play it yet.

I hope Second Departure, the PSP enhanced port of SO2, gets the same treatment.

I have heard it didn't do as well as previous entries, yes. Hmm...

I've been wanting to play other SO games, as I only own TtEoT. I know the fourth one is on Steam, but haven't gotten the chance to try that one yet. I'd wish they added the other ones to PC as well...

I picked up the 4k version that was released on PC and started it in summer 2019. I didn't finish it. It wasn't bad per se, just painfully mediocre. The plot wasn't very engaging, and some of the characters were just outlandishly bad.

I still need to finish it, though.

That's what I was honestly leaning towards the most so I'll probably get started on it today. I really enjoyed Star Ocean 2 so I hope this title delivers. For the most part, what I enjoyed the most from the series was the item creation and from what I know I don't think this one has any, but oh well.

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time is solid, but not as good as Star Ocean: The Second Story. In my personal opinion, anyway. SO2 is the pinnacle of the Star Ocean series.

General Discussion / Re: Secret of Mana: Redux

We recently finished translating five blog articles that Shinichi Kameoka wrote about his time working on Secret of Mana: https://manaredux.com/lore/the-story-of-those-days-part-1/.

What's interesting is that the Maru project was defunct before Secret of Mana began development.

Hmm, I'm torn between Persona 3 or Star Ocean.

Go for the latter, I'd say.

Hey, everyone I managed to beat Suikoden (PS) today. Got all 108 Stars of Destiny, and did everything for the save transfer to Suikoden II. Decided to play a PS2 RPG this time:

Shadow Hearts, Digital Devil Saga, Persona 3, Star Ocean Till the End of Time.

Anyone have any recommendations between these titles?
