The combat is fun. The story and characters are godawful.

The story and characters are blueprint Japanese RPG style, down to the last archetype. The game is a lot of fun, but the characters have about as much personality as cardboard, and the types of characters are textbook jrpg. Japanese voice acting helps a bit (the english is horrible, but its no chaos wars *shudder*).
Say, "fuzzy pickles."

Deal is dead.

Bought this back when it hit $29.99 and haven't played it yet. People warned me that it'll drop, but better safe than sorry, I guess. It's a new year so I'm motivated to be patient and be an even bigger cheapass in 2011.

BB price matched GS I had to buy it from GS though and show the receipt b/c of the distance of the GS that had it in stock. But at least I this and white knight chronicles for $43

the BB in fairless hills/oxford valley PA has at least 10-12 copies in stock of star ocean for ps3

Would of jumped on this but was at work. There is a GS about 45min from me with a new copy for $20 but I have a feeling it's the 'display copy' least that's what happened when I hunted down a Fallout 3 CE from this same store. I don't really mind it since its $20 and long as the disc looks near new.

I mean its like 5minutes from my college but its still break so I'm debating just waiting to see if it's still in stock when the semester starts up again.

I tried hunting down a used copy originally but Gamestop usually never carries them with the original case and manuals and I don't like buying it with their cheap crappy cases.

Also with it new as musicjunkie pointed out, its a display copy which they somehow decide to charge you the full price of a new item which doesn't make sense.

I kept checking Amazon hoping they'd match it and when I finally saw the price today I just had to grab a copy.

They should really use their crappy cases for the display ones if they have new copies and keep all the sealed stuff behind the counter. If it's a matter of 'we don't want to advertise a game we may not have in stock' just have the employee put the display case that says new on the tag off the floor if they pull the last one.

How is it logical to open sealed games just to have a placeholder on the floor. Well aside from the employees checking out these games.

Discovered this on my own, being how I always review my 'zon wish list for daily price drops before I check CAG, and just jumped over here to see if anyone spread the word yet. Good job OP ;) And of course, in for 1.

I've been telling myself that I'd get SO4 when it hit $20...so I just bit. I suppose that rationally, I should wait for a future price drop, since I don't really have the time to play it, but $20 is a good price point for current-gen games.

Ended up grabbing it for $21.99 from warehouse deals just now. Tired of missing out on it, so I finally snagged it at that price :)

Dang, oh well got last copy from Gamestop for $19.99, can't really complain about the $.43 difference. Looks like I was too late anyhow.
