Some naughty stores are selling FF13 early - but we're not complaining! Images of sealed copies of the game are starting to appear as well as screenshots from early sections of the game.
Sayonara M$. Japan won't even remember you. LMAO
lol they never stood a chance its like stamping on a babys toys really
Game will be amazing on both. There's more to life than system wars, guys.
The game on both systems will be great. I'm actually waiting to see how Square Enix will deliver on the 360 version as this is their first time developing a FF game for the XBox.
If you call a game thats compressed to death on the xbot good . I have no comment. but it does show that the bots don't know shlt about graphics or audio.. all there games is compressed and the bots are blind to see this .
My import should ship tomorrow!
Do you speak Japanese or the game has English subtitles?
But you'll be able to find a translation guide by the end of December or sometime in January so it doesn't really matter.
Looking very stylish and clean! I can't wait for this game to come out here in the States!
just make sure you buy the right version (its got one disc!)
Le sigh. Let's just worry about the one version in Japan, for now... and yes, it does look absolutely amazing!
The graphics are extremely crisp, and the menus look tidy.
Japan Madness Exprosion!!!
I have to admit, if any JRPG is worth it this time it has to be this one and soon FFversusXIII. Hopefully Enix really did use the PS3's hardware POWAH.
Ha, if only. That will be a good day! I'm so hyped...more so than I have been for any other game in the FF series. & I've just finished reading the translated FFXIII web novel, which has got me even more excited :D
yeah massive hype for me too. I just hope it will live up to it. If it ends up being good I call that an achievement.
Dang, japanese subs. I was really hoping the game would have english subs. I'm still gonna get it on thursday though.
Does the game have an option to switch to the english language in menus and subtitles?
That's something we are all hoping for.
No option, but sites like this one are providing translations so importers will know what everything is.
Almost makes me want to learn there language just to play some of there games!
that's actually what I'm doing. lol tired of waiting on great games and anime. lol
Lots of people are, and websites like the one posting this story are doing import walkthroughs to translate and help people understand. There's plenty of help out there.
Too much of a hassle... Forget it. On top of that you'll gonna miss on a lot of little details.
I ain't got time to be translating and converting jap to eng. I can wait 3, 4 months.
That what im doing atm. Its a lot harder then i thought though. Kanji is crazy hard.
crazy hard is right. Kana and hana are easy in comparison. I got this book on Amazon that shows funny figures to help you remember in a funny way the meaning for most kanji. Also I recomend learning the 200 basic radicals which almost all other Kanji are made off. If you learn those 200 then the others will make more sense and easier to understand. Even with all that its really hard to learn. I still have a really hard time hearing the langauge to break it down to translate unless they talk slow. Anyone have any suggestions?
actually, it's easier than I thought it would be, but I haven't gotten into kanji yet.
looks great...at least one version of the game will rock
Can't you play the game and let everyone else enjoys theirs?
I agree. Its funny japanese is the easiest from all the other Asian languages but goodness it freaking hard...go figure huh. I was thinking about get Rosetta stone buts its expensive. Maybe I'll crack the wallet open next Febuary and get it. I also heard Rosetta stone is really good if you want to learn a different language.
It is, but I strongly suggest not using it to learn Japanese. I got it for Japanese and its almost worthless. The mike does not pick up on your dialogue well and each lesson is either in Kana, Hana, or Kanji so to learn it correctly you have to do each lesson three times. It doesn't mix in three like in real life. lol. Its only good I guess to hear it, and even then they talk slower than normal, so you don't really hear like they would speak it in normal speed. Pick up another software if you can or there are some podcasts that will help on the listening and speaking part.
try thai or cambodian... i would say those are by far easier than japanese. cambodian being easiest because there are no tones, but the written script is so much simpler than katakana, hiragana, and kanji... i say the best way to learn any language is to immerse yourself in it. go live in japan for a few years, i'm sure you'll start picking it up in no time (else you'll be one frustrated mofo)
well yeah living there would be the easiest. I learn a lot just visiting for a week, however most people can't just quit their lives and live in another country for 2-3 years, no matter how bad we want to. lol
thai is pretty difficult. My girlfriend is thai and she teaches me new phrases everytime shes in town but whenever i think i'm getting better at it i'll hear her and her friends talk and i can never understand a word they're saying, lol.
I think the screenshots of the trophy list might contain some spoilers so you might want to avoid looking at them too closely. :edit: Disregard, no spoilers.
Looks like this will be my very first Final Fantasy Game I'll play. Good thing I have my 10% discount to save some money, I can wait until March 2010. Everyone is going to have fun with this game all week and this month.
ok..i'll take that into consideration.
SPOILER!!!SPOILER!!! Someone has passed the game already and has said Lightning dies, Serah and Snow love story. FF7エアリス死亡→映画でライフストリームとして復活 FF8はリノアも一回宇宙で死亡寸前→ハッピーエンド FF10ティーダ死亡→FF10-2復活エンド FF13ライトニング死亡→？？
the game should have multiple endings, just like most of the RPG's are now a days
So far all the FF games I played have 1 ending with the exception of FF-X2 which had multiple endings.
yuck, I don't think so. From My experience from gaming whenever you have multiple paths or different endings the overall story as a whole suffers. There are only very few execptions to this rule. If thats what you like stick with your Western styles, don't mess with my Japanese style. Thats why there hasn't been many great next gen games so far, because they are trying to appeal to people like you, no offense. They need to stick at what they do best, and let the west stick to what they do best.
Umm please tell me Subjgeta (forgot name its finals week spare me) is lying here? Cause if the ending got ruined, all hell will break loose
The graphics look very good. If square enix pulls this off the PS3 Final Fantasy XIII visuals on the 360, then it may turn out to be the 360's best looking game.
