Wow, these comments are reminding me how terrible video game people are with gender issues. For a hobby that embraces technological innovation, a big chunk of you guys are pretty backwards. Harassment isn't tolerable. Sexism isn't funny or acceptable. We've got to grow up as a community.

You're clueless. The fighting game community is known for its incredibly offensive trash talk thats almost always good natured and friendly. Example: In a recent tournament there was a really white guy playing and the commentators (who were both black) called him casper the ghost. I'm sure you would of had that tournament shut down and the commentators sued. Or maybe not since he wasnt a girl eh champ?

Lets completely ignore the fact that the FGC is one of the biggest real life trolling fests where everyone gets blown up all the time. If you can't handle someone telling you that they are going to sniff your hair if you lose then maybe you're in the wrong place. In her audition she claimed that shes into the fighting game community but still she would crack because of Aris acting creepy? What bullshit, she knew she couldn't hack it at the game and didn't really want to be there and this is why this came out. Even Sherry called her soft.

I just feel for the amazing people that could of been on the show instead of her. Regardless of what kind of criticism this brings from various clueless journalists (Jim Sterling) or eeeeesports people, who have ZERO clue what they are talking about, fighting games will continue to bring the hype and big personalities, something other 'esports' still can't do.

Sherry's an uncle tom and she wasn't there in the room whle Miranda was being harassed by aris, she has no say in how super__yan felt or should feel. The fact that you're trying to blame the victim is utterly disgusting. You're blaming Miranda for wasting a spot, you're saying she should have known she was going to be constantly sexually harassed by Aris upon accepting an invitation to the show. Get real.

Don't worry dude I'm sure she'll hold your hand if you defend her hard enough.

Also lets not mention that aris is known for acting creepy and doing this to everyone including sherry, mike ross and tastysteve. Stay free 'journalists'

Holy crap - they actually DID tweak storytelling and added in dialogue/conversation trees, like in western RPGs! Link: http://www.siliconera.com/2011/12/01/this-is-final-fantasy-xiii-2s-travelling-merchant-chocolina/. They actually DID listen to a lot of feedback and changed things up. The storytelling is what I most concerned about - FFXIII was loaded with derivative characters, and also-rans of past character arcs and dumb, sub-anime plots. The game played fine, but it was impossible to listen to - kind of a problem in an RPG. I am totally onboard FFXIII-2 now. All the other tweaks, to the world design, the characters, the storytelling -- Yoshinori Kitase is genuine in his attempt to right what went wrong here!

I didn't play FF13 but multiple choice dialogue in a final fantasy is just dumb and sounds terrible. 'Are you a hunter?' bitch please. Final Fantasy for me has always been about seeing the events unravel and the linearity NEVER bothered me. Guess people want this banal mass effect shit with horrible filler dialogue these days.

Yeah I'm sure this'll end well for Mojang considering they employ people who haven't played video games before Minecraft. L O L

Fucking terrible. How can people call this game perfect 10/10 GOTY best 'rpg' ever when a huge part of the game (NPC interaction) is total ass? When you are talking to a npc and another one comes within 10 yards of you it triggers a random line of dialogue. It's so fucking irritating hearing some guard say 'DONT START TROUBLE' when you are having a conversation with another NPC. Whoever let that shit in the final product should be fired.

Do you have homing soul mass? that makes almost all bosses in the game trivial to beat. Seath is also very easy to beat even if you lack damage, just have to be patient and not get greedy.

Once you start thinking 'whats the point' Dark Souls becomes not very enjoyable. 80% of the covenants are totally useless

each and every covenant has a purpose weither it be helping with co-op, pvp, or just helping in the game like shortcuts (chaos covenant). But none of them are useless as each has its own ups and downs for certain things, and most of them always have some item / spell to give.

Yeah some covenants give you a reward or two and then what. The game is easy as it is so I don't understand the appeal of co-op. Gravelord is 100% broken and does not work, Dragon Covenant is gimmicky and no one will touch your sign to duel you, Way of The White is just what, Princess Guard gives you acces to 2 useless miracles, Chaos Servant is nothing but donating humanity until you get all the spells. The only covenants worth a damn are Darkwraiths and Darkmoon since they actually work and improve your gameplay experience. Forest Covenant is stupid because you can just fight VS level 50 characters with your glitched max level.

Don't get me wrong I love the game and have put over 200 hours into it but the covenant system is not as awesome and deep than it might seem if someone just told you about it. Once you get each covenants rewards theres just no point to being anything but Darkwraith or Darkmoon.
