New 11 minute long gameplay video for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
Looks terrific. Seriously.
Damn shame I hated the first one so much. If I need to know the story for this one I won't be getting it. It looks awesome though.
xiii-2 had a synopsis included that actually made more sense to me than playing xiii. xiii-3 might do the same, though i'd totally recommend trying xiii-2. that game had really solid and enjoyable pacing in my opinion.
I agree with Ipach. XIII-2 is a fantastic game and is waaaaaaay better than the original XIII. It has the story synopsis of XIII so you don't actually have to play XIII.
funny i been watching the playthough since last night 9pm to be exact.. looks good so far
omg looks absolutely amazing!!!
LOOKS SOOOO GOOD
I honestly can't wait untill this crap is over and done with and we get FF15 next gen. It's going to be hard pretending the FF13 series never existed
So, no comments on the actual game, then? XIII may not have been everyone's cup of tea, but it was still a good game. XIII-2 improved on the problems people had with XIII, but was still accosted. LR is almost entirely different in every single aspect, and yet people can't even judge it based on the game it is. The game looks gorgeous, the gameplay is tight, and the usage of time as an integral mechanic intrigues me to no end. Why not actually comment on the game, rather than stoop to the level of hater?
No why would I...things about this game have been said a ton of times before. No point repeating things already said It really wasn't a good game Hicken, please don't lie to yourself and even the second game wasn't as good. An improvment yes but lets be honest compared to FF13 any small details were going to look like huge improvments, they couldn't of made it worse it would be impossible. "LR is almost entirely different in every single aspect, and yet people can't even judge it based on the game it is." How do you know....because of what Square showed you with their great edited videos. Sorry to burst your bubble but they did the same with FF13-2 made it seem like a game changer and it fell flat on it's face. Oh and just because a game looks gorgeous doesn't mean it's going to be good. "Why not actually comment on the game" I did, I stated my opinion on the game and the series. If I did go into depth then you would of still called me a "hater", I would of wasted my time repeating what people have said before and the whole thing would be a waste of time (like I'm doing now to be honest) Why is it someone on here can comment on a game, not directly replying to anyone because they are not their to knock peoples opinions, just state their own because they respect others BUT you still get people like yourself who have to reply to them and criticize their opinion despite not doing anything wrong....have I bashed anyone's opinion on this comments page.....no I haven't because there's no need to. So don't call someone a hater just because they have a different opinion to you. A comment page is for everyone good comments or bad. If you really think only people can post good comments then that's messed up
Stoop to the level of a hater? I think he is one.
@ErryK Nope just a guy with a different opinion That doesn't make someone a "hater". Don't get your panties in a twist because someone has said something you don't want to hear....it's kind of sad. As I've said above I haven't said anything in my original comment above which is directed to anyone so I don't see why you guys have to target me when I haven't done anything wrong. If you can't deal with what your expected to see on a free for all comments page then maybe this site isn't for you.
I'm not targeting you because you're wrong or because you've offended me. I'm just saying, the way you're talking is really negative, and for the sake of all of us, the gaming community could use less people like you.
You gave no opinion on the game whatsoever; let's just get that out of the way. XIII actually was a good game, in my opinion. Did it carry on the traditions of FF? Not as strongly as I or most people would have liked. But was it a bad game? That's horseshit, Terry. What part of the above gameplay is edited? Did you even watch the video? You don't like the XIII series. That's fine. You say it would be a waste of time to go into detail about what you don't like, but it's STILL a waste of time for you to comment, and it's actually MORE of a waste if you're not even gonna contribute anything. Gameplay-wise, this game has more in common with Crisis Core than XIII. There's open-world everything all over the place. No more Auto-battle people were too stubborn to realize they didn't even HAVE to use; or, if it's there, it doesn't prompt the same action repeatedly, which led to the "Press X to Win" label that didn't even work in XIII and XIII-2 anyway. Personally, I liked XIII better than its sequel. Oh, and you can do FAR worse. Cross Edge says hi, among others I can't remember the names of and don't feel like looking up(Time and Eternity had very poor execution, though interesting concepts). This game looks good. It looks like it will be a good game. But you're so blinded by hatred for games I can't be certain you actually played that you won't even give this one a chance. Any RPG fan can see the difference between this and its predecessors. ... but they have to be looking at the game. And you're not. Just making a blind judgment. Hater. Confirmed.
Hey bro, i'd recommend stop arguing wuth them, you're better off doing whatever you want. seriously, its hopeless, you'll see the likes of them in every Lightning related article.
FFXIII was complete torture for me. 20 hours into it before I dropped it. 20 hours, about 17 of them where purely painful to play. With the few redeeming moments...Sazh/vanille chapter where they get ifrit. Just because the story was good in it and the summons where the only good battles in the game besides 1 or 2 bosses. But my god that game had no heart. It was "Press X to win" for about 3 hours of the start. The first 20 hours absolutely crushed my soul. Honestly. It was a terrible game. Maybe the second half was good. But I certainly didn't stick around for it. All I saw was an open world with still only one thing to do - Battle repetitive enemies.
I just cant w8 one of the last few games I'll buy for 360 next year. It seriously looks better and better every time.
Not my cup of tea, but i admit it looks really good. Imagine if SE gave the same dedication for an ff 6,7,8,9 remake. I can only dream. Genuinely happy for the fans of this trilogy though.
Am I the only one reminded of Assassin's creed when she jumped over the roofs in the slum?
haha, she does the journey slide!
I really love how this game is turning out. The graphics and art design is beautiful, the music is great and the battle system looks like it has been improved for the better. I love the first two even though a lot of people seem to not care for them. I am excited to say the least.
oh man, kinda like the japanese voice acting. would totally dig having a japanese audio track option like with ni no kuni... digging the battle soundtrack, too. nice little iteration on the XIII-2 ones.
Can't wait. Gameplay looks mighty fine, and it seems like there's a whole lot of content in this one. :)
