This opening felt... A little rushed or something. I dunno, felt like it needed to be longer.

it felt like extra cheese and extremely cringe worthy. You wouldn't caught me dead playing this....
Why do you come to these videos just to bitch? Stop being a troll dude.

This actually looks really good, and I want it. But I couldn't complete FF XIII-2 because i didn't really like it, how essectial do you think this game will be to the previous ones?

Did anything in here majorly shout FF 13-2?

I don't know on this one. The first 13 was horrendous so I skipped the second.

FF13 was better than FF13-2 story wise. All that time-jumping made me dizzy.
Goku781  +   798d ago
I might check this one out.

Does the story make sense anymore? Not that it has ever made, but I don't think it's coherent and consistent from FF XIII and XIII-2. I'm not even sure why this game exist?

Square Enix could have done so many things, such as localize Final Fantasy Type-0, Finish Final Fantasy XV, start making Kingdom Hearts 3, release KH Birth by Sleep on the PSN, develop a new The World Ends With You, etc, but they decided to make ANOTHER FF XIII?

it doesnt make sense because u obviously didnt play the first two games cuz if u at least saw the ending of 13-2 you would know that it wasnt a happy ending and it said TO BE CONTINUED and if u ddnt know two completely different teams are working on 13 and 15 and 15 has the team that works on home console kingdom hearts thats why kh3 is taking so long and there decision on a sequel to twewy or western type-0 are not affected by the 13 series

I've played and beaten both and I still don't think the story makes a whole lot of sense. They went from being a completely linear story way of telling things "Save the princess", to the second one being about time traveling with a worse story IMO (better gameplay). I feel liek they are trying to hard to establish FF13 as something with each game trying something completely new. This one is going for the complete dark vibe now.

I get it, each FF13-X is suppose to be a completely different scenario, but at this point it's hard to connect the dots between each game beside having the same characters and an ending point. IDK man, i just don't know anymore XD.

If you think that the story doesn't make sens then youweren't paying attention.

And no each game of teh FF13 trilogy isn't a different scenario, the events are actually properly linked within each game.

If anything else fails , just read the damn datalog to pick the clues you've missed.

The production of KH, FFXV and TWEWY have nothing to do with this game.
CrossingEden  +   798d ago
You do realize that this is the most profitable and popular FF sub series in Japan right now right?

It doesn't feel like an openong of a game. I expected to start as she breaks free of the crystal.
Kalebninja  +   798d ago
she got out of it in the 13-2 dlc
FamilyGuy  +   798d ago
Yeah this definitely seems like a scene that's from within the story rather than it's opening sequence. :/
smashman98  +   798d ago
I thought that was cooler than anything I've seen from xiii or xiii 2
Williamson  +   798d ago
I just started 13-2, it sucks that lightning is only playable for a little bit.
Z501  +   798d ago
I don't care what anyone says. Game looks good. I liked 13-2. Haven't played 13 yet. Will be playing this come Feb.
Hicken  +   798d ago
As far as story and characters, I prefer XIII over XIII-2. LR is looking good, and I can't wait to play it. I'm curious to see what this power is that Snow's got, and why he seems more like an antihero than a true villain.
young7yang  +   798d ago
I like it.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   798d ago
It looked pretty kool but it didnt exactly feel like an opening to a game.
Sharius  +   798d ago
i don't deny that i think lightning character is kind of cool, my second favor female character after Garnet from FF9

but the boring gameplay of FF13 and the terrible story of FF13-2 make me afraid of getting this game at launch

maybe i'll wait for some preview before make the decision

I dont know. I kinda liked it.
Nerdmaster  +   798d ago
I hope the story makes any sense.

I thought that the world becoming Valhalla would stop time and death, but somehow now the world is going to end in 13 days...
GirlOnFire  +   798d ago
It feels like Lightning hits again and missed me because this is an passer upper. Wake me up when they make an real Final Fantasy.
Z501  +   798d ago
what's a real Final Fantasy? ... Mystic Quest? FF4? FFTactics? Crisis Core? FF11? FF12? Dissidia? FF14? FFXV?
smashman98  +   797d ago
Dirge of cerberus was a real final fantasy wake us up when that happens again
