IGN - IGN breaks down all the details of the first full trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fanasy XIII in our Rewind Theater.
i was the biggest Final Fantasy fan in ps1/ps2 era but this gen every FF game is nothing like the FF games in ps1/ps2 era atleast for me
your right...in the ps2 era final fantasy was king...but square tried to appeal to the west and made their game linear....ff13 sold good but was a disaster.... I hope they go back to ff10 style
:-( I honestly didn't like ffx all that much...the last two I truly enjoyed were ffxii and ffix. But I get what you guys are saying and tend to agree.
I disagree strongly. FF in the ps2 era was only a bit better than ps3 era. FFX was the start of the series losing the world map and making you walk down linear corridors to get to each location. It introduced terrible voice acting which they still haven't got right. At least it looked beautiful and had a good combat system. FFXII i honestly only played foraabout 6 hours so i cannot comment too much but i didn't enjoy what i played. I know i am settting myself up for disagrees and bubble down but i feel these games get an easy ride on n4g at least because they were ps exclusive. FFXVI - FIX were king and i hope Nomura can return us to the magic of those four games
That's why you gotta play and enjoy both the story, music and gameplay in a game like Nier. And also to praise and love Lost Odyssey for being so classic, yet an overwhelming game both in music, characters, and story :P
it looks alright and 13-2 was good but the damage is already done and I really would prefer SE to start really knuckling down with versus and 10 hd aswell as getting KH 3 a teaser trailer or just a hint that it is in production. EDIT* Also the doomsday clock reminds me of Majoras Mask a little bit
For me, the whole 13-day thing, and all that the end of the world thing, are reminding me a lot of Valkyrie Profile. I'd rather SE create Valkyrie Profile 3: Hrist than play as Lightning. I never felt so frustrated in my gaming life. Sigh...
I'll tell you what's not going on, alot of FFvs13.
The sad thing is, the most exciting thing about the trailer is when they say "Lightning's final journey" Also the English voice actress for Lightning is HORRIBLE, she's like trying to do a female Clint Eastwood and failing big time. I didn't even bother with FF13 or 13-2 but wow, I'd have hated to have to listen to that voice for the main character all game.
Then you must hate mass effect because of liara. Same voice actor. She also had a very big list of games and movies she's been in so she can't be that bad of an actress if she keeps getting jobs. Plus you can't even have an opinion since you've never played these games. Just go back to call of duty with their 3 recycled lines
The writing and directing at bioware is a bit better than at SE. For some reason they are too lazy to edit the cutscenes from the Japanese version where the voice acting takes a bit longer to say so they make the western VAs make stupid errrrrs and ummmmms to make it last through the scene. Its so obvious that's what they do and it makes the VA sound had and the dialogue as a whole very cheesy. Sort it out SE!
It all looks like more of the same to me, like they didnt even try to bring anything new to the table. Not only that but some of the battle sequences looks very dull, did you see the way Lightning slashed that Behemoth? So anticlimactic, no action whatsoever. Its all the same game with an uglier costume, she looks like some sort of half assed goth queen or a gay black metal vocalist. Im definitely gonna buy this one used....
FF 13 wasn't too good, 13-2 was a good step, but still was nothing like the SNES and PS! days. If 13-3 can improve on 13-2 even more, then it might be wroth taking a look. The trailer wasn't too bad. I hope they can pull this off and stay true to what they said about the game being more open.
This looks pre-alpha footage.
It's so difficult to openly get excited for this game when all you are confronted with is negativity from people who clearly have no intention of buying the game. Wish you people would just stay out already. You've made your point, we get it, you don't like Lightning, you want Versus. Good for you, at least let those that enjoy these games discuss in peace.
Here's the thing, why should people be quiet about their dislike for Square-Enix's practices and terrible games? People like you are the same kind of people that want fans to stop voicing their dislike for games like DmC. If we stop, then these companies think that everyone likes their sh*tty games and we get more sh*tty games. Two sides to every coin and we're trying to prevent garbage from being released. Lightning Returns is garbage. That's just the truth.
I'm sure Square Enix are well aware of the negativity surrounding XIII. People don't need to repeat themselves anymore. It's always the effing same on these comment sections like Hingle says. "I hate lightning nobody likes lightning give me Versus DERP." It probably get's posted like hundreds of thousands of times a day. SE are definitely aware of it. So enough. If you don't like the look of the game, just don't buy it. You're not entitled to anything. Square Enix will do what they want, taking on board fan criticism to a reasonable degree without compromising on what THEY want to make. So just shut up saying the same goddamn shit over and over again.
If the game turns out to be much better than everyone expected, then I'd like to see all haters eat socks for the rest of their lives.
It won't be.
I'd like to know where you got your time machine, sir.
@Gold There was a time machine sale across the street today. You didn't know? Man I feel sorry for you. This game actually flops HARD.
Also just noticed her outfit has changed in one of the battles, don't know if they picked up on it or its just my bad eyesight but that has a hint of 10-2 about it though am assuming you can just change her outfit which would be cool cause I remember in 8 when you got your seed uniform and I never wanted to take it off but you had to to progress through the game :(
the combat system seems promising, just needs a lot more oomph in terms of sound and impact. it is pretty early in development though. at first I thought this was gonna be similar to versus but it seems like its carving out its own path so here's hoping lightning gets a good send off and square Enix can finally give noctis the limelight.
I don't like IGN, but they did succeed in being amusing. Their is a part where you can tell that they have no real clue what they are talking about though. The part where they start speculating about Mirror's Edge and Assassin's Creed having more polished running mechanics. This may be so, but lets wait until the game comes out before we start talking about how well the mechanics will work compared to other games.
Old days FF was very good, not anymore.
