Lightning May Be Flying Solo In Lightning Returns: FFXIII

By now, most fans have seen the trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and are at least partly aware of the new game system that will involve a limited time of 13 days in which Lightning must save the world. (Dev, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

Slowbro Kotaku. It's been longgggggggg confirmed since the announcement of the game that Lightning will be the only Playable character.

I like having a party of characters....but I mean if that's the way the designed the game ill still get it, just because I wanna finish the saga...and I more or less enjoyed the story for what it offers. Although FF13-2 story was all over the god damn place.

I miss the days of FF6, where you had like 20 party members or something. That game made it so damn hard to pick a party of 4.

@Snookies: How about the Suikoden series. Try coming up with a party when you have like 60 playable characters. Lol.

Less player controlled variables make combat more simplistic - effectively 'dumbed down' relative to others in the series.

Which is a lame considering how auto-pilot the XIII series battle system is.

I don't mind it. Crisis Core only had Zack playable.
DragonKnight  +   1011d ago
Crisis Core was a better game because Zack had an actual personality.

Same with Kingdom Hearts...sorta/ You just controlled different people at different times. Well, Versus will have switchable characters on the fly during battle. I don't mind either way so long as it's good. Hopefully the different styles or whatever lightning has will make some variety. Even though I likely won't buy this game, I hope the best for it so S-E can move on from it.

So many lightning articles lately yet nobody cares
Snookies12  +   1011d ago
I'm sure some people care, I'm just not one of them. I'll get the game when it's like 20 bucks or something...

That's what I waited 13-2 to drop to before I bought it. I really don't think I'll be getting this one though.

I noticed how many negative comments there were.. typical N4G. Awn..

On topic:Everyone is still alive basically. Aparrently Fang and Vanille will return for batle system too.Anyway, I think its gonna be a fantastic game.

Kraptaku voted down. What's up with all these lame article from Kotaku being approved?
Hicken  +   1010d ago
Crappy article: yes.

Surprised you're here- not really, though- since you hate the XIII sub-franchise so much.

But I bet that you'll be there for the next LR article, complaining about it again.

And the article after that.

And every article about it, even once the game comes out.

You may get it, complain about how bad it is, and get a bunch of agrees/bubbles. Which would be amazing, given your level of hate. Or you may pass it up, and while having no experience with the game, continue to bash it.

I feel the former is the most likely: you'll purchase the game, dislike it, and tell the whole world how the game disappointed you and was a waste of your money, confirming your suspicions. It will fail to live up to your expectations of it, which was impossible from the start, and you will trash the game for failing, and people will agree with you.

I guess what I'm really getting at is: after this long, why bother? Why waste your time commenting about a game you'll hate before you play it that you say you have no intention of playing? Nothing about it appeals to you, so why bother keeping up with it?

Am I the only who thinks Lightning's new costume is so over the top? Personally, she looks like she's the lead guitarist for Kiss.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1011d ago
I think it may have been on purpose since she will have multiple costumes.
wishingW3L  +   1011d ago
She looks like Neo: http://www.thesangeek.com/w...

Couldn't find a picture with his trench-coat closed but still you can get the picture.


This one is still the best though: http://finalfantasy-xiii.ne...

KwietStorm  +   1010d ago
She probably will, cause I won't be playing it.

I bought FFXIII-2 for 13€...will buy this one too if it reaches that price tag.
