If you never got a chance to play one of the many gems of the PlayStation era, Star Ocean: The 2nd Story, you will soon be able to remedy that mistake. The remake is now available on the PSP, and as any veteran RPG fan will tell you, it absolutely cannot be missed. The real-time/turn-based combat style was one of the very first in existence, and the depth of the Item Invention process is almost mind-boggling. To further entice you, here's a look at some gameplay, which shows Claude on a mini-mission to save his eventual partner, Rena. This footage certainly brings us back to the glory days of The 2nd Story; the only significant difference is the addition of voices. RPG fans, you gotta snag this one!
