Star Ocean: The Second Story
I like to find common themes in the games I post each week, but Mightyblue had to go and spoil it for me by writing about the second Star Ocean instead of the third. This could totally be a week of collective hallucinations and false realities! But nooooo. Instead it’s about, uh, cooking. Also available: A series overview.

Run! It’s New Games Journalism! Just kidding. This article has nothing to do with vegan burritos and spend almost its entire (brief) length discussing the game and its trappings and this has no relationship whatsoever to NGJ. Unless maybe it was written under the influence of hallucinogens! Also, not yet available: A series overview. Yeah, I gotta straighten out my priorities.
Also, I’ve finally re-added a links page to the site. Don’t weep if you’re not on here. I banged this out randomly from memory, and we all know my memory ain’t what it used to be at this point. To say nothing of what RSS has done to my attention span! I’ll add more stuff later when I remember what sites I actually frequent.
Since kicking off the subscription thing last week — please refer to the lovely images in the sidebar to participate! — I’ve received several common inquiries. Please allow me to address these now:
- Can I just send some money once? Well, the idea behind a subscription plan is that a bunch of small payments can be split among the contributors for each issue. So one-time lump sums would kind of suck for everyone who writes the following month.
- Do I have to use PayPal? I prefer to distribute the cash through PayPal, so yeah, it’s easier to keep it within the family, so to speak.
- Geez, do you not want my money or something!? Hopefully the subscription plan is merely a temporary way to fund the site’s contributors, so I don’t want to go overboard with it. If you’re not keen on the system, that’s fine — just enjoy the weekly updates.
- How can I write for GameSpite? The GameSpite wiki a limited-access thing, and I’m trying to keep the pool of authors manageable by only adding a few at a time. I also want to preserve the community-oriented aspect of the site, so I prefer to draw upon forum and comments regulars. That being said, I’ll probably put out a call for fresh blood soon, so hang on until then.
Anyway, thanks for reading. Someday, GameSpite will magically become a real boy thanks to your support.
