question about plot twist *spoilers*

#1mr_rush101Posted 5/15/2012 10:54:21 PM
I haven't played this game in like 5 years but I've read in places that Tri-Ace actually had hints that they were in a video game in previous games of the series. Can somebody point them out or was it just bs?

I haven't played them (YET!), but I heard that hints were retroactively dropped into 1 and 2 - in their PSP remakes.

I do not know if there were any actual hints in the original releases that would indicate that event.

The only hints I can think of is Planet Styx being present in Star Ocean 1 and Indalecio/Gabrielle in SO2 wanting to destroy the entire Universe. I guess that could imply the creator of the Video Game wanted to erase it a few hundred years earlier by using Indalecio but failed thanks to the heroes of SO2.

But honestly, the plot twist was probably thrown together at the last minute.

I don't see how you can say it was "thrown together last minute" considering Ameena's existence was a HUGE foreshadowing of the plot twist, and that nearly all of Disc 2 revolves around that plot twist.

Nearly all of Disc 2 revolves around the post-game, and how is Ameena a foreshadowing?

I can think of a number of works which had dopplegangers but did not turn out to be video games.

"It's a far, far lesser thing I do than before I could reload from the save point."

ALTHOUGH, if you do take this sort of thing for a hint, then didn't the Prince of Cross in SO2 look like Claude?

How is Ameena is foreshadowing of the Eternal Sphere twist? >_>

She is an under-developed subplot that was meant to make Fayt decides to help Aquaria.

I'm talking about Disc 2's plot, smart one. Jesus.

And about Ameena... are you serious?

This is why Fayt was wondering why Ameena looked and sounded exactly like Sophia. Ameena's like a "re-used asset" or "worthless NPC" created by 4D beings, that's why she looks and sounds exactly like Sophia. It's a good way to foreshadow the plot twist.

Take out the post-game, and almost nothing happens in Disc 2. Were you smart, you could have extrapolated that. Now that we've devolved to name-calling.

If Ameena is foreshadowing, it's half-assed because it's meaningless until you already know what the context is. A nifty thing, but nothing exceptional.

And what M_C said is pretty much it as far as the story itself is concerned.

Why would you even bring in post-game content to a discussion about the game's PLOT? So clearly when I said Disc 2 revolves around that, I meant plot-wise.

And that's what foreshadowing is. It's foreshadowing of a major plot twist, so of course you won't get it until later on.
