Couldn't care less what she looked like, I really hope the sales of this game are poor and will make SE reflect on their priorities cause this business model they are touting is a shambles.

You would hope that the game's sales suck to maybe make a point instead of hoping they make a great game? Because I actually thought xiii-2 was a good game.

13-2 was good but it was little to late for the 13 saga after 13 anyway so yes the sooner this saga dies the better everyone will be.

Squares priorities and management have been terrible this gen, Edios is the only exception. Square has lots of ips and new game ideas but instead they keep plugging away at some game no one wants.

Why feed the Lyon a veggie meal when he wants his meat. Give me versus/chrono/kh3

um because the gamers that made these companies are tired of these same companies spitting back in our faces for these mass appeal shit games.

ff13 6+mil
ff13-2 2mil

its pretty sure that ff13-3 sales will fail

talking about their IPs I think instead of making FF13-2 they should have saved the time-travel premise for a new Chrono Trigger/Cross game instead of using it to milk this not so good FF13 game. =/

And I remember that like 4 years ago they said they were going to bring back Parasite Eve to consoles again but it never happened.

FF XIII is the black sheep in the franchise to me. I just want X HD :')
DA_SHREDDER  +   832d ago
Agreed, where's my FFX remake they promised?! Also, what's their obsession with Lightening? This is their worse FF ever made and they are clinging on to this universe for what? Give me an open world old school FF with dungeon crawling with a turn based system or don't give me anything at all!

I don't wanna bash Lightning, but I'll say this one more time: She isn't that popular and likable as a character, so SE should stop shoving her to people because it would only make them look like they're desperate.

Lightning, after this, let's move on. It's not working out...
Jinkies  +   832d ago
She's a bland, boring, depressing b**** with no good qualities to her. The only reason she stood out was because she was surrounding by worse characters then her.

Seriously the only people that really like her are mostly girls (it's true) or gamers who are new to Final Fantasy.

I hope this game flops bad. The last remaining strand of square is riding on FFXIII Versus. If that sucks I'll never-ever come back. The only game I liked recently was Type-0 and it'll probably not see the light of day over here who the hell is in charge of treating hardcore fans like this? I'm not gonna blame COD either lol.

If this game flops bad then thats millions of dollars that Square Enix will lose and you may never see FF13 Versus because of this game's failure. Never think that a company simply cannot go out of business. I hope this game is an amazing return to form for the FF series, because I am a Final Fantasy fan.

You fail to understand the corporate mindset. A failure causes them to re-evaluate, a success makes them believe everything is ok. The Final Fantasy 13 Saga of Lightning is a terrible and poor example of a Final Fantasy game (each of them) and SE are trying to force it to be a success because they want to continue down this mind numbingly awful path. If Lightning Returns is a success, then the Final Fantasy you are a fan of will cease to exist ever again. Think about that.

fu.k lightning.. they screwed FF Franchise with those stupid chracters.. Those are the days i was enjoying FF.. ff7-ff8..
aiBreeze  +   832d ago
How about they show Square's new (out)look without Wada? That would be the best Christmas present they could give fans at this point. Don't know about Japan but I don't know a single person who is overly excited for this game let alone asked for it.

I love Lightning.

I just hate the battle system and time-travel theme.
NoTheMama  +   832d ago
I hate the ff13 games, yet love the character of Lighting. Im weird I know lol
RoXante  +   832d ago
Nice, cant wait.
Catoplepas  +   832d ago

Do I care if a bunch of people that never had any intention of playing the game boycott the franchise?

Not a lick.
cleft5  +   832d ago
It really is unreal and extremely sad how many people are wishing for this game, or any game really, to be a failure. I am hoping for a great game personally.
wishingW3L  +   832d ago
these games went from Lightning and friends trying to defeat a demi-god on a technological universe to time-travel and Lightning becoming some kind of Valkyrie and now to different dimensions and stuff. This series is a freaking mess, it's like 3 totally different games that have nothing to do with each other but recycling the same characters.

Lightning and Fang were the only two likable characters in that very very long and drawn out game...
J86blum  +   832d ago
Seriously...go away lighting. This character has single handed become the stigma of the FF universe. When I think of her I think crap and then on the other end when I think CLOUD I think amazing.
Griffin4871  +   832d ago
Not a fan of the saga, but wishing the game will fail is going overboard. This is the end of the saga. SE doesn't need a reason not to draw it out.

I also don't see why people are even excited for Versus seeing it's attached to 13, the number everyone here seems to despise.

You can't judge a game by it's title or sequel number. Lightning is a boring b**** but Lightning Returns can still be a decent game.
