Guys, this entire topic is spoiler tags with no narrative. The title of the topic already says "spoilers" so unless you are talking about a MAJOR story spoiler, there is no need to mask regular battles or ordinary boss battles.

Game: Star Ocean The Last Hope International

Got the Ambush trophies for Edge during the Phantoms fight. Very tricky to get as they need specific conditions.

Also got Bacchus's Deal over 4000 damage and Edge's Deal over 10000 damage trophies during my runs.

I also found out that you have to save in order to save the Battle Trophy/Monster Collection data.

Actually this is from Sunday, but...

Beat the Kokabiel; HP boost really helped a little there, but Arumat was a real life saver. Main party is around level 48 - 50 average, while others are around 40 - 44. I should start finding a proper leveling spot <_<

Not too motivated in questing either, since I missed few of them at the beginning. I rather get both quest trophies in one playthrough.

5 words: Armaros Manifest and Comet Impact.



Game: Star Ocean: The Last Hope International

Did a ton of Private Actions and wasted all ~760,000 Fol I had on buying several things. Looking forward to the rest of the area because Stab the Sword of Justice plays ;D

Game: Star Ocean: Last Hope International

Finally got motivated to beat this game on Galaxy, but I can't see myself beating Universe or Chaos-difficulties anytime soon. Good game overall :)

Instead I plan to start a new save on Earth-diffuclty to start getting some trophies. I really need a checklist for beginning part, so I don't miss on quests and recipes. Plus getting certain battle trophies should be easier on Earth.

So, I take it that the trophies, monster data and ship data all carry over from one game to the next, as they do on Xbox? Earth Mode would indeed be the easiest for some trophies, particularly Faize's because he's not a powerful mage nor really a powerful tank, more of a generalist I'd say. Also too, any of Sarah's and Lymle's would probably be easier too on Earth Mode.

I know that some bosses are harder in the PS 3 version, but if it's any consolation, or challenge to you, I can say I watched our member rinimt beat the most difficult version of the most difficult post game boss live, via ustream, on Universe Mode.

Hehe, yep, all Collectable data carries over. I don't know about difficulty of Xbox-version, but I didn't find any main storyline boss particularly hard on Galaxy. Even the final boss was more time-consuming than tough.

And yeah, I picked up Earth for keeping my sanity while acquiring certain battle trophies. :D I always have Universe unlocked if I ever get bored, though.

if so that's impressive. XD I've already cleared Cave of the Seven Stars (sans Gabriel) at the moment and will now mess with duplication and synthing before going for Gabriel Celeste. Then I'll tackle WD and after I'm done with all that I'll start a Universe playthrough (I actually found Galaxy challenging enough, so Universe would be really challenging for me XD). That is, if FF13 isn't out yet.

In the long run, I might actually platinum... no, scratch that. All 900 battle trophies is nothing short of tedious. =.=

Yes, Megafun you are right about what I meant  :P

You can check out rinimt's videos on YouTube since she recorded that battle and pretty much all the game. She has the same name on there.

You don't even have to complete the game to transfer collection from one save to new one.. so yah, pretty good.

It's how I was able to fill up the missing Cardianon Mothership data. Thankfully I have a save just before the Cardianon Mothership so I could get the data, save, and reload my current file.

I did that for the Phantoms Fight for Edge's Ambush trophies.



Game: Star Ocean: The Last Hope International

Just entered the final area of the game, and got Sarah's Jump 2000 times trophy along with a ton of Arumat's.

What. The. Hell.

I might've lost all my trophy data PERMANENTLY because PlayStation Network is down. EVERYONE is having the same problem, as when I tried to open up Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, the game won't load trophy data, forcing you to quit and remove any Star Ocean 4 trophies in your Trophies section.


Got the 75% Battle Trophies Trophy today, and got them while farming Arumat's consecutive battles without healing trophies + Defeat 100 enemies with HP less than 5% trophy at the same time.
