Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (Hands-On Preview) [NoSleepGamer]

NoSleepGamer writes: The character models are excellent too, although I only had a few cutscenes to take in the sights. One slight concern is Lightning’s new victory poses. She tries to pull off something of a ‘sexy’ pose, which just feels so out of character someone we know to be deadly serious all the time. The boob jiggle feels unnecessary too. Oh well, roll your eyes and carry on.

The State of Play: Mapping numerous attacks to the face buttons is yet another departure from classic turn-based gameplay, but it seems to be giving the combat a slick feel and it may well offer more depth than the last two XIII games, which bored even the most dedicated fans to tears on the battlefield. When playing XIII-2 my PS3 died and I Iost my save file from the last boss stage of the game. Instead of the blind rage that I felt at losing my progress in my other games, it felt like a relief that I wouldn’t have to play XIII-2 anymore to be honest. Call me a glutton for more punishment and heartbreak, but I find -again- I’m willing to give the XIII series another chance. (Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

I am excited for this game. I liked 13 and liked 13-2 more, so going with that trend it should be pretty good. 13 is not the best FF in the series but not the worst either, its somewhere in the middle

xiii-2 definitely surprised me for the better. i know I may be in the minority, but I'm glad to revisit the world and see it wrap up, especially with more lightning as a badass
