With Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Square Enix has closed the Final Fantasy XIII chapter and is moving on. Just kidding, of course it isn't. Hope you like reading and words and stuff!
Oh dear God no!
Ahahaha. Seriously, I don't know why SE focuses too much in the worst Final Fantasy game of all time. Oh well, FF XV and KH3 delayed again.
I agree I can't comprehend why SE keeps shoving this pile of garbage down our throats . The FFX remake outsold the most recent unnecessary FFXIII sequel yet Square doesn't learn.
I don't know. FF13 wasn't the worst FF game. It was just a convoluted story that left you wondering sometimes what the hell was going on or "so, what the hell did they just say?" It took a good bit to really understand all of it, but it wasn't as if it was that bad or anything. FF13-2 was actually a good game, too, and I liked the whole time travel aspect and monster catching and building in that one. I haven't sunk my teeth too much into Lightning Returns yet, so I can't give a fair assessment of that. But as I hear, this is going to be more of graphic novels and short stories like what Blizzard does with their Warcraft series. Nothing too out of the ordinary for a series where a lot of lore needs to be filled in and explained in greater detail. As I've heard, many of the Warcraft novels aren't that bad, so hopefully these follow suit.
Naruto, Naruto you should just forget about it.... besides it doesn't change the fact that it's still SE.
there must be a reason..
Easy and cheap to create the sequels because of all the reusable assets. Profits are a lot easier to turn on these games.
I'm tempted to say the MMOs are worse, but I can't, because they at least try to have RPG gameplay systems. FFXIII is probably the least fun, most poorly designed combat system I've ever seen in an RPG. Couple that with abysmal level design and a pretentious narrative... Yeah, its the worst of the lot.
Calm down, it just a novel that we can't read anyway.
Square is really pissing me off. Seriously, LET THE FREAKING GAME DIE ALREADY.
http://fat.gfycat.com/Impec... She will never stop returning.
now that was great :) thumbs up
NO! Go away!!!
You guys are overreacting. It's a Novella that most of you wouldn't even be able to read.
Bu someone WILL translate it... and then all the worlds children will be at risk... unless they're illiterate
As long as it doesnt affect FF XV AND KHIII I am fine -but of course they should of quit that game, no body want it apparently lol
I don't see how a novella would affect FF XV's and KH III's development.
Since when have XIII's detractors used sense?
I haven't heard at all, but is FF XV still based on the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology? I don't think there was every a direct connection to XIII, but they shared a lot of the same themes, mostly mythology, religion, and similar stuff. Of course, Lightning Returns pretty much trampled that religion into the ground, but still. Otherwise, I doubt this particular novela would affect those two games, as it's really just a rehash of the original plot-lines from a different perspective.
FF 13-4 FF:lightning returns 2 FF:Rise of the lightning
Final Fantasy: Lightning Revengeance.
Didn't each one sell worse than the one before it? Don't know sales figures now but a while ago FF13 sold about 6 million, then FF13-2 sold 3.1 million, then wasn't lightning returns one of the worst selling in the history of the franchise? Final 10 HD sold more in 2 weeks in Japan than LR life time sales from what I read. Massive final fantasy fan and rpg fan in general but FF13 has been the biggest disappointment in 22 years of being a gamer to me. Oh well FF15 looks pretty epic and hopefully they will do FF12 HD! :)
FF13 wasn’t dat bad, it was abysmaly catastrophic , sorry but I don't care for FF13 or any of its sequels
Say whatever you want but I think Lightning is really hot.
She is hot indeed. Game still sucks.
Lightning is the very worst traits of Squall and Raiden from MGS, multiplied a thousandfold, then given a sex-change operation. She's one of the absolute worst game protagonists ever, female or otherwise. Then again, the FF series has never had good female representation in their leads. The only females that were honestly interesting characters were part of an ensemble cast where EVERYONE was interesting (FF6, still the best by far) or got killed at the end of the first disc.
Jesus christ, who's making these bizarre decisions? Expect SE to say the Novella was well recieved & say they're making another sequel. FFXV to be released 2018 or the company to go bankrupt. :|
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLL Cait Sith is disappointed.
you've gotta be freakin kiddin me...
I don't see how this is a bad thing. FF13 must really be popular if it's spawned three games and several novels. And I've never played the games, but from watching the walkthroughs on YouTube I really like the story and the characters. But different strokes for different folks; I must be in the minority that doesn't hate on it. A shame the novels aren't in America, but if they get translated online I'd be glad to read them.
Why couldn't she do some self sacrifice and die. But japanese only kills males 90 percent of the time, why couldn't lightning been guy so he could do the self sacrifice and die. Just die, and i hope the next ff has better written dialogues and a character with actual characteristics.
Badly written yes. Worst game ever no. I enjoyed the FF13 series because I let go of all bs I heard. I actually learned the game and had a good time with it. With that said don't continue making 13 games 3 was enough. It could of been one game tbh or if they extended part 2 that would of been it. ^~^
