I'm glad, this game looks like a rushed cash in. Therefore it did not take up much effort or time for a certain other game

best example of optimism I've seen in quite a while, kudos to you sir.

Sorry to say that .. but i start to hate modern Gamers who likes "Anything modern" since the beginning of the current gen especially from this game and likes games that took the course and a new direction in their own sequel.

I'm really looking forward to 𝑽ersus and 𝝧ersona 𝟱 more than anything to have some confidence .

So I just noticed a trend. The first game Vanille said it had been 13 days since they awoke(her and Fang), and now it's Lightning who awakes 13 days before the end. Does this mean that she is going to be playing a similar role that Vanille and Fang served in the first game?

I hate Lightning.
Chard  +   865d ago
I hate what she represents - a lack of Noctis
yaz288  +   865d ago
I love Lightning, I swear .. the fact that you play with her sister in x13 2 instead of her ( the most stupidest thing squire could do!) is what made me skip the fucking game!

she is what made me buy 13 (my fist ff game )

and I AM definitely GOING TO BUY THIS! But please squire .. add the fucking jap voices!!! with sup.

(I understand the new design thing .. squire were playing ac lol)

I love Lightning too. She's so cool!

I just wish this game will be more like the original FF13 rather than FF13-2. Those time-travel themes are just ridiculous!
belac09  +   865d ago
the battle system actually looks like they finally found a formula that is fun and works.
wishingW3L  +   865d ago
battle system is just a copy/paste from Valkyrie Profile. They didn't even tried to make something new or to refine the old one.
belac09  +   863d ago
dont get me wrong im sick as hell of the whole 13 series. i hated the battle system in 13 and 13-2, this just looks better than those is what i mean.
Bellcross  +   865d ago
I really hope she dies in this one....
Nicolee  +   865d ago
last shot of Lightning with glasses look great so cool.
youndamie  +   865d ago
Come on tho, the glasses design is the same type of glasses Cloud had in advent.
AdmiralSnake  +   865d ago
So.... whats your point ? Lol?

Does it REALLY matter ?
youndamie  +   865d ago
@Admiral It doesn't matter. What I was trying to say is they are trying too hard to make Lightning cool.

Well I don't know about you guys but I know that I'm getting this game when it comes out.

Oh and as for the textures, yes I agree they look pretty bad. Who knows though, I wasn't there so I can't say for certain but I don't think it is the finished product. Maybe they just put in a quick thing so that they could start advertising the game.

Even if I'm wrong I don't really care, I liked the first two and I don't doubt that I will like this one.
rainslacker  +   865d ago
The textures will probably look a lot better than this. It's pretty apparent since Lightnings texture doesn't quite mesh with the environment, and it isn't like Square to use such generic textures, especially in their flagship product.

The battle textures themselves for the buildings look like placeholder's to me.

Hopefully once this trash is released, along with the much improved ff14, we'll get around to seeing some good games come from square again. Such as vs13.
betan21  +   865d ago
trash it is lololol
Spenok  +   865d ago
Lol at all the negative comments. This is the FIRST gameplay shown for the game and, because you didn't like the first one (or two) this one is also trash. OR because it's made by a company who has made a few bad decisions this gen.

Not to be rude, or anything, but you don't know a damn thing about this game, other than the obvious details. How about you wait for it to come out before you pass judgement on it. Wanting a game, or any product to fail is just stupid. And/or, if you aren't looking forward to this game, then IGNOR it. Stop coming to the article just to talk back about it. The people who are looking forward to it don't care what you have to say. It simply wont affect their decision to buy the game or not.
rainslacker  +   865d ago
I agree with you, and said the same thing the other day. I hate how all these articles are being hijacked by the haters. Up above I made an observation about the trailer, and asked a question and got a disagree. Seriously, this is a discussion thread about the game, so I wish people would just discuss it. I don't really care who hates it, I say good for them, now go away. Obviously they have an opinion that is based on bias and they've shown me that they can't express any opinion that wasn't put in their head by the media.
goldwyncq  +   865d ago
That's true. Haven't seen one article about the game without negative comments or people getting impatient on Versus XIII.
Nemesis4567  +   865d ago
On Most games what you are saying is true. But this is Square Enix and not Squaresoft. To many people, they have had too many chances to prove themselves. When Final Fantasy X-2 trailers came out I never saw a negative comment. Same with Final Fantasy XI Online. However, then Final Fantasy XII came, then dirge of cerberus, then XIII, and then XIII-2. Each game a disappointment to a lot of people. Can you really blame them for being skeptical?

Well I had an incredibly long and thoughtful reply, then Windows decided it would update, without warning, and restart itself.

Long story short, I don't deny anyone their skepticism, but that doesn't mean a game they know nothing about is shit, or what have you.

Judge it when it comes out is all i'm saying, NOT before.

But how about not being a bunch of hypocrites huh? (Not you necessarily, don't know your thoughts on this matter lol)

And I mean about VS-XIII btw.
rainslacker  +   864d ago
I get what you're saying, and I understand it completely. I have nothing against skepticism at all. In fact I would say all these games that get hyped up to no end, regardless of publisher, should receive a bit of skepticism just because very few games live up to what people make them out to be. Versus itself is heralded as some sort of god-send to the FF line of games, and there isn't much more known about it than 13-3.

So how are the two games different that it warrants all the criticism that 13-3, or accolades for Versus, is getting? The only logical one I can come up with, other than art style and presentation, is that people didn't like FF13. This is fair enough, but after the second game, why do people even bother to comment negatively anymore? The 2nd game improved on the first, and if the 3rd improves on the 2nd, wouldn't reason dictate that it may be the kind of game people that like FF want to play?

If someone came in and made a rational response, much like you did, it would further discussion as opposed to comments like "It sucks", "Lightning is awful", "SE sucks", or "I hope it fails". However, as I said above, the attitude towards this game is just hypocritical, and very few people really offer up reasoned opinions on the matter.

On a side note...I remember quite a bit of complaining about Dirge of Cerberus, but it was after the game came out.

Some of those buildings look awful, but the gameplay actually looks pretty fun.

I'll wait for some hands on previews before I form a solid opinion.

The final Final Fantasy XIII sequel coming in 2013.
cleft5  +   865d ago
The remix of the ff13 music sounded really good. I think these guys really have their pride and egos invested in this franchise, so I look forward to seeing what they do to redeem the series image. I liked ff13 and ff13-2, but I recognize those games are a far cry from the other FF titles.

With that said, I am looking forward to seeing what this game will be like, these guys have made amazing games in the past so the talent is their. The only question is if they can get over their egos and make an amazing game again. If Lightning Returns is bad then I am not very hopeful for FF Versus 13.
ApolloTheBoss  +   865d ago
Goddamn it just release Versus!
j-blaze  +   865d ago
it looks really good! i like it...hopefully better than FFXIII and XIII-2 not that these were bad, just not good as previous FF games
rawshack  +   864d ago
looks whack kid
Blackcanary  +   864d ago
hmmmm have to wait and see not to sure about this. wasn't sure about the first one which was a waste of money skipped the 2nd not to sure about the 3rd. have to wait and see.
Cuda52  +   864d ago
I miss the days when I was excited for a new final fantasy game. SE has really dropped the ball this gen. I miss having enjoyable characters that you care about like Zidane, dagger, vivi, tidus, yuna etc, not lame ass hope, vanilla and snow. I just hope that eventually they regain that magic that made final fantasy games so special.
