Star Ocean: The Last Hope Gameplay Videos

I’ve been looking forward to Star Ocean: The Last Hope for a while now, but with the game about to ship next week I’ve suddenly become very worried. Square Enix released these new gameplay videos today, and they’ve made me grow concerned about the game’s narrative. The gameplay and graphics sure look spectacular, but some of the dialogue is just plain awful, both in terms of writing and acting. The female characters sound particularly laughable. Hopefully this doesn’t turn out to be another Infinite Undiscovery where fun gameplay and nice visuals are wasted on a terrible plot…
