I, for one, can't wait!

I'll probably replay the first 2 games during winter before that one comes.

Glad to see it got such a good review already.
So many people keep complaining about it without even giving the game a chance.

Saw it in Japanese today. It's pretty cool. Not what you would expect from a FF title.
maximus1985  +   293d ago
is it on youtube?
Benjammin25  +   293d ago
Yeah, that's where I watched it.
maximus1985  +   293d ago

I am one of the few who actually enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII, and XIII-2, so for me this is a must buy.
rlacorne  +   293d ago
I don't think we're that few. People love hating, and hating on a juggernaut series like final fantasy is a god send for some. Because yes, XIII was linear, XIII-2 was convoluted, and that's more than enough ammo to attack such a venerable series.

I can see the flaws of the XIII string of games, but I still enjoyed those a lot, and I believe a lot of people are in this situation. :)

fool me once shame on....oh you know already what im getting at :).

Im just glad this will be the end..i hope, unless theres 13-4 lightning one more time or something. I hope to play this send it off and look forward to ff15!

Yeah, I'd say it's less that there are few, and more that many people REPEATEDLY hated on the first game. They bashed it so bad that hatred automatically transferred over to the next game, and STILL it persists.

I'd wager most people decrying XIII either haven't played it, or did so with some crazy expectations they made up on their own. And of course, when they were disappointed, they blamed the game rather than themselves.

@hicken

for most they watch it in on youtube and then act like they actually played game

Can't wait to play this game next year. The wait is killing me.
maximus1985  +   292d ago
ok i just found and watched the ending of ff13-3. Im not going to spoil anything but i will say that if you werent a fan of the previous 13 games then this one wont even be blip on your radar especially after that ending.

FFXIII is the worst Final Fantasy I have ever played. (FFX-2 a close second) I even gave the sequel FFXIII-2 a chance and thought it was a very slight improvement but still really hated it. Cheesy, linear, immature and way to focused on graphics and not much else. The most interesting thing about FFXIII-3 from the screens I have seen are the environments and artistic design, everything else is just more of what I really don't like. But hey ho if you're a fan of the FFXIII trilogy then have some fun and I hope we can all find some common ground when FF15 is released.
