That was pretty silly. I suppose that's what you want from that sorta game, though.

My god between this, Final Fantasy X HD and Dark Souls II there is SO MUCH good shit still to play on PS3. Everyone who is boxing up their PS3's already are silly. If I can't manage to get a PS4 before the end of the year I might not end up getting one until summer or later with all the shit I have to play early next year.

The Final Fantasy XIII series needs to die, enough already.

As I have said in probably every other Lightning Returns thread, fuck I really need to get around to playing XIII-2

Question, are any of the other XIII games worth playing now?

@zomgfruitbunnies: Because time travel.

@slax Personally, I really like both of them. They are both really cheap now too and people who have XIII and XII-2 saves I think get some sort of bonus in Lightning Returns

Yeah, me too, although this game seems way more interesting.

Final Fantasy has always (IMO) been appealing due to the quality of the tales villain. FFXIII was a huge flop in this regard but I've heard great things about XIII-2's villain and the games overall improved quality.

Played it a bit today. Combat is a bit punishing for ff on normal. Combat is a weird mix between tales and batman? As in you could button mash but blocking, exploiting weaknesses and switching between customs are much more effective. Some fps dips but no where near as bad as FFXIII-2. To sum up, of what I played of it so far (about 4 hours in) its pretty good. Writing is average for ff games but for the first time in FFXIII universe, I am curious to see certain character's motivations.

@xalienxgreyx: How about instead of wishing that it die, ignore it and let those that enjoy it enjoy it?

I love the XIII games. Something about Lightning I think.

I stopped watching media for this game a while ago, but I'm really looking forward to it. This is coming from someone who thought XIII-2 was a step down from XIII, for whatever that's worth.

People talk some mad yang about FF13 but I'm kinda looking forward to this.

That was the weirdest, most uninformative trailer I think I've ever seen.

@starvinggamer: I made it halfway through then the Last of Us came out, was an entertaining experience and just like XIII you can level however much you want to to make the game more or less challenging (no forced levelling); it is easier in general though. Still an amazing combat system.

Haha, that trailer was cray. Also this still looks alright, I'll try and actually play 13-2 before it's out.
