I was planning on picking it up anyway, I enjoyed 13-2 enough that I want to finish the saga and then I shall wait for 15 to come out by playing kh 1.5 and 10 hd

I'm right there with you. I rather enjoyed both previous games. XIII had it's problems but it was an ambitious title. The Soundtrack was still stellar. As for XIII-2 it was refreshing and more upbeat (like X-2). The soundtrack had a Jazz feel to it that I was really able to appreciate.
And after the way XIII-2 ended, I need to know how Lightning rectifies it

The damage is done, FF13 was terrible, FF13-2 was crap so FF13-3 AKA Lightning Returns won't be any different. The game is being made for those who like the games for whatever bizzare reason....them talking about all these things that will appeal to old school fans is just PR talk to try and lure you into buying the game, the more old school FF fans they sucker into buying the game the more sales for them.

They said FF13-2 was going to be changed to suit old school FF needs and adress complaints about the first game and they hardly did anything...just a few things here and there.

Them adding all this Cloud stuff to Lightning Returns is just desperate in my opinion. They are trying way too hard for people to like her and the sad thing is which they don't realise that the majority of FF fans don't like her. She's bland, boring, depressing, a moan and sometimes a bit of a b****...she has no character development what so ever unlike people like Cloud, Squall, Zidine or even Tidus.

I know a ton of people reading articles for FF, love the way the game has gone or still hold out hope. I agree with you man. I wish they would bring back the old school game style. Sadly until they can prove that, FF is lost in Bermuda right now.

Oh spare us. You Square-Enix apologists can say whatever you like about Legend of Zelda, at least THEY keep their dignity in check.

>They are trying way too hard for people to like her and the sad thing is which they don't realise that the majority of FF fans don't like her.

Stop right there. Recent polls show her as one of the most popular female characters out East, even beating out Aerith for the #1 slot once. She's well liked over there, period. Here in the West is where she's debatable, and even then she has fans.

Going 'Everybody hates her' simply isn't true. You can not like her or the games, but that part is flat out false.

-Foxtrot1072d ago

Japan likes anything new or "in" at the minute, once the next FF game comes out the female character or main character in that will be the most popular. So don't give me the polls speech, america and Europe are a bigger place then Japan.

"'Everybody hates her' simply isn't true"

Never said everyone hates her...I said the MAJORITY do.

Oh, so that's why Aerith, a character from a game in 1997, has consistently been one of the most popular female FF characters. That's why Yuna and Tifa almost managed to win as well. Because they were new. Got it.
>So don't give me the polls speech, america and Europe are a bigger place then Japan.
What's your point? Size doesn't matter, the amount of fans does, and guess where most of the FF games are most popular. You have no evidence that the amount of people that dislike her in NA, EU, and JP are more than the people that like her in NA, EU, and JP. I, at least, have offered some kind of evidence that she's a popular character.
>Never said everyone hates her...I said the MAJORITY do.
Of which you have no proof or evidence to base that on. You don't like Lightning. I don't particularly care for her either but to flat out say "Most people don't" with no basis is silly.

Because Lightning is the best character ever to be created in the history of the human race.

Blackcanary1072d ago

u just made me spit my drink out.

KonsoruMasuta1072d ago (Edited 1072d ago )

I'm buying it.

I'll be picking it up while I'm in Japan in November.

XIII may not have been the best FF but I had some fun with it and XIII-2.

SirBradders1072d ago

I still cant believe she is called lighting imagine her kids names fire, ice and ground.

Rai1072d ago
