I don't know why you people are so....dramatic.  
 
This is Final Fantasy and not some western game.

Seriously, shut the fuck up about the voice acting, its not that bad.

Posted by Koobz

Ugh, anime melodrama and voice acting.
 
Graphics look really good, though.

 that was the fastest 7 minutes of my life

Posted by President_Evil

The melodrama... ugh... I love Final Fantasy but that was seven minutes of unfiltered, overwrought emotion, oozing with un-needed teenage angst.  The combat system looks awesome but... I'm not 13 anymore Squeenix.

i want japanese audio

@88Fingers: Amen brother, don't forget X360 on that list. I don't want to run around as some sissy boy man and open treasure so I can buy a new dress for the lead male, Square should have just made this a FPS from the get go. I know they wanted to put it on both consoles though and ps3 isn't good at running FPS's because cell can't render the unreal engine, but surely they could just halve the framerate and blurry up some textures like all the other devs do when they make multiplatform games.

I don't know, this looks absolutely amazing, and I dug the acting as well. I think people are just jaded. I can't wait for Spring now, SSFIV and FFXIII!

I was jazzed for this in 2008, now, not so much. There is such a thing as missing the hype bubble.

You just answered your own question.
Posted by DavidSnakes

Ugh!!!  That is some of the WORST most melodramatic dialogue I've ever heard.  Square-Enix has never been more out of touch.  Compares this to the debut Gay Tony trailer, which absolutely shits on this embarrassment.

I wouldn't say every single Japanese developer is out of touch.  Most of them?  Yeah, absolutely

Visually it looks amazing, but the voice acting and the dialogue is terrible.

Posted by SoothsayerGB

Im just not a fan of FF anymore.  Looks good, for what it is.  But is, isn't for me. 

Posted by pause422

From the start I was all over actually trying this FF because the combat looked pretty interesting, the new battle system and everything, but wow...everything else, just as overly dramatic and terrible as I expected. Ugh.

Edited by barkertron

After watching this my feelings veered between: 
 
1) This looks amazing 
2) I don't know if I can actually be bothered sitting through hours upon hours of melodrama, MGS4 style. 
 
Confusion reigns supreme.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight... of course it's not. Terrible. Awful at running FPSs. You complete idiot.

Voice acting was fine, you fucking japanophiles.   Being an American voice actor would suck ass.   They get so unfairly bashed.

I would fuck all tha bitches in that game

Posted by Meltbrain

The music seems awful... that theme towards the end is terrible... everything about the story looks totally uninteresting and overwraught. The gameplay better deliver, that's all I gotta say. I'm a big fan of the series and I loved 7, 8 and 10. I even enjoyed 12 for a good while, am I the only one who feels this way about 13? It just looks really... bland.

Posted by Giantstalker
Even though I count myself as an FF fan, this video montage comes off as incredibly cheesy.
 
I think it's mostly the fact that it's all taken out of context and then put together rapid-fire, in the final game it'll be paced so as not to be so poor to watch.
 
This game is a good half a year away or more from North America, so it'll definitely get more localization work done on it between now and release.
 
But as a trailer, this definitely doesn't seem to speak to many of the game's strengths. It's just bad.
Posted by Cribba

Oh god... if I ever play this game I'm skipping all of these cutscenes, this is 
embarrassing haha.

Hm, this is starting to become interesting to me again. It certainly looks hella good, and those were some awesomely performed pieces of japanese-ish melodrama. Will try to keep this one as a mental note and not watch any more trailers.

Posted by ElectricHaggis

I can live with the dialogue.  There's nothing wrong with some melodrama now and again.

Edited by Xymox

The character models look absolutely stunning in my opinion -- but there's something I don't like about some of the voice acting. Wonder if the japanese voice acting is better. All right, whatever, I'm on board again.      

Posted by SpacePenguin

oh man this is lookin better with every trailer, voice acting is a bit wierd but i can live with that.

Posted by skaune

I really don't see what all the fuss is about.

Posted by Sinnix

lol I'm excited to play this game when it comes out but that music was *awful*. Totally killed the trailer for me.

Posted by Darkstar614

Yeah, I don't think square is trying to capture any new audiences with this. If you are already planning on playing this, you know what you're getting into. Which I fear isn't exactly the main audience of Giant Bomb...
 
As for the characters, It's just the way the Japanese culture is. Americans tend to favor older protagonists(ie. Marcus Fenix, Gordon Freeman, Shepard from Mass Effect, etc.) while Japanese tend to favor much younger and, god forbid, 'emo' characters. So no Square is not out of touch with what is relevant. They're making a game for Japanese players. And then its being localized over here. Really unfair to say that Square Enix doesn't know what they're doing just because they don't make games for the entire world as a whole.
 
 
Guy who played Kanji as Snow is pretty epic though, "GET BENT!"

Posted by mrfluke

persona 4 people are voice acting in this game ... i think kanji is voice acting snow. and naoto is lightning . and rise is the pigtails girl

Posted by NoXious

Since I never had a console before I'm dieing to get my hands on FFXIII. It looks great, bar the GF summons - those just look horrible if they all turn into something modern to do the damage.
Being a huuuuuge fan of FF8 - I'd prefer that system personally.

From what I know, no Final Fantasy has ever had blood or gore. Keeps it more like a Final Fantasy game. 
 
I apologise on behalf of PS3 of not putting useless red stuff in a Final Fantasy game. Both of you are morons. I apologise for that as well.

" Ah yes, Finaru Fantasi . High-art... The zen of video games. The plots in these games are richer than any film or book ever written. I scoff and the western attempts at duplicating the magic of these games with blunders such as Fallout, or Planescape: Torment... When Sephiroth stabbed Aerith (Aeris for you plebians) I slammed my controller to the ground in a whirl of rage and sorrow. After waking up several hours later with self-inflicted claw marks all over my body, I grabbed the controller. This was not the end. No. this was the beginning... I would have my revenge on the one who killed her. I mouthed the word, but did not speak it.  Sephiroth... "
Am I the only one picturing Shawn Elliott doing a dramatic reading of this?

@X360_boner
 
I'm going to assume you know nothing of the FF series from your comment on making it 360 exclusive. They do not have excessive blood. Violence, yes, not blood. In each FF there has been one scene, and one only, with blood. The series is story and character driven.  Excessive blood  would detract from the melodrama. If you want a more violent, bloody RPG maybe you should try some of the western ones. JRPGs are not known for blood. Odd really, considering that the bloodiest cartoons with some of the greatest stories come from Japan. It's just not a Final Fantasy/any JRPGs really thing to have blood, though they've moved so far away from the original feel of the series that maybe that'll happen soon. Not in this one though, this one seems all about the cheese, two demensional characters and convoluted plot frequently found in the newer ones.  
 
 I'm not touching the comment about making this an FPS.   
 
Not directed at X360 ;

SquareEnix needs to stop adding the FF title to their new RPGs. They could do so much more if they just broke away from that series. It ended with IX. VIII was a stretch and the first sign that the company wanted to make something different, they could have started in a new direction there without the FF title (I still have fond memories of VIII but it did not fit in with the others and had the worst finale I've ever seen- TIME KOMPRESSION...no).
 
 IX was for the people, like me, who remember FF as ending with VII. It was their way of telling those people that the series was over now, "Here is your parting gift that is wrapped in so many references to other games and such an awesome homage to the FF stories of the past that you can safely ignore any new FFs as they will be so completely different that it will crush you to see the FF title attached to it."
 
Why didn't they just let it die there and make X and beyond their own games? I liked FFX, I had to pretend it wasn't an FF and wanted to shoot myself after playing X-2, but I liked it. The main character may have been annoying at first but he actually grew, so did the others, there was development there. I'd play the other new ones too, and maybe even like them, if they weren't FF. I have no idea if any of this will make sense to people who do not think how I do, but there it is.

This trailer makes me not look forward to playing FF13.

Edited by Jeffsekai

Oh man that totally sold me on FF13, the story looks like its trying to evoke the emotions I got while playing lost oddesy which is great!
 
 
EDIT: oh man between this and Super Street Fighter 4 my spring 2010 is gonna be fully booked and then battlefeild will come out lol argggg

Posted by BirthdaySuitBurns

I guess I'm the only one that thought the english dubbing wasn't good at all.  Every line felt forced.  I wish they would just include the original Japanese track.  It just sounds more natural.
Posted by EvolutionX0

  I'm Only interested in that insanely detailed CGI, Needs to be a movie to me lol. 

Posted by RVonE

Square-Enix better not fuck this up by not including the Japanese voice track.

Are you kidding? Having to do 360 versions of games holds back the PS3's potentional, because developers have to account for the 360's inferior hardware.

Looks great, but the music made it seem so cheesy

Looks fully epic, so many great games to look forward to.

You're both idiot fanboys, that is the only fact.
 
More on topic, I definitely prefer the Japanese voices.
