Uncover your ears: Final Fantasy XIII-2 will not start off with a J-pop concert.
absolutely can not wait for Final Fantasy XIII-2, had a blast with the first one, played for days on end, couldn't put the controller down. Loved the graphics, gameplay, characters, Everything. Plus this will held me up until Versus XIII.
Do you really enjoyed the XIII fail?
FF13 was fun. sure it was no perfect but it was still good.
i sure did .. i did not regret my purchase ..played all FF , and many rpgs ..ff13 is a good rpg ,not a great a FF and that's ok in my book . there are many things that should be corrected for the sequel however
Wasn't Versus supposed to be "Dark and Mysterious"? Anyways, I won't expect much in this game.
FF13 really isn't as bad as people say it is; I find it pretty fun overall. May be partly because I played it with original voice overs and subtitles?
I also didn't find it terrible but wasn't great either. Sigh why do I only have 2 bubbles =\
i wish i could have played it with the original voice overs cause some of the dialog was super cheesey in english
Ive seen a lot of anime back in the day and if theres one thing that the Japanese know how to do is write Cheesy dialog.. but it could be that its just misinterpatation when the dialog is translated to english. I do know they cuss a lot more in the jap versions :P
It is what it is. It's definitely a graphical showcase (on PS3, at least), the art style is great and pretty reminiscent of Panzer Dragoon Orta (one of my favorite games ever!), and the music is top-notch, especially the boss themes. Yoko Shimomura was definitely running on all cylinders. The English voice acting was decent; mostly non-offensive. Sazh's voice acting was great. The battle system? Well, if they just threw it at you with a little tutorial, it would be great, but they spoon-fed the system in little bits, so it was boring for quite a while. Earth to Square: your consumer base is older than you think, we can handle it. Content-wise (creating cities and towns, side-quests that weren't "fight this thing," etc.), they failed, but that was expected considering what was being said in interviews: they spent way too much money on way too many staff creating a graphical engine; they should have tweaked someone else's and put the money toward content creation. It wouldn't be as pretty, but it would be engaging. It screams mismanagement, just like XII's production did when it switched teams three times (and lost depth to every city but Rabanastre, lost the airship battles, created a void in the plot and shot you to the ending, etc.). It's totally a mixed bag, and it depends on what you like, and what you can tolerate. I was fine with playing through 25 hours of "okay" to get to the good stuff - I was unemployed at the time! Couldn't do that now, and I'd be pretty impatient. Anyway, the subject at hand - FFXIII-2. We've only seen a few shots of this thing, but it's comforting knowing Vanille won't be doing her best Britney impression this time around.
I'm going to wait until someone besides the company calls it "dark and mysterious". This means about as much to me as Apple calling their own products magical.
FF13 was probably not the best FF game, but I didn't think it was that bad. Yeah, it wasn't ur typical FF game, but once I started playing, and got used to the new battle system, I really got into the story, and the characters. And I'm actually looking forward to part 2.
How the hell did they finish making another FF so fast!!?? Didn’t they just announce this game like a month ago; usually they take like 5 years just to make one FF game. I'm just guessing, but they might be using some of the extra content they had to cut out because of the limited space (xbox 360). I remember a post on n4g a while back ago where the developer said that "they had to cut so much content that they could make another game with it" or something. Just a guess though, but if they are shouldn’t this be DLC.
I don't think it's finished yet. The game is set to be released next winter.
Throw in a few towns, make the story dark (and can follow it), then you know...hey...Ill give it a shot.
FFXIII was fun at times, but overall something just didn't feel right about it. The battle system put me to sleep and reminded me why I'm so in love with the Mario and Luigi handheld series, especially Bowser's Inside Story. It was pretty and boring, so I guess you could say it was pretty boring.
So erm....... more emo?
lol. ffxiii was okay but i hope this one is better.
I hope, Hope gets better developed this time around then the whole "you killed my mother..... you must die!"
i feel like this new ffxii-2 is the left-overs from the post production phase of the game during the dev cycle.
Agreed, it’s too fast especially considering how long they usually take to make a single Final Fantasy game
I think X-2 gets too crap. Was it a bit corny and girlish? Sure. But I was genuinely excited to be reunited with the characters since it was a first for the series. The battle system was fun and a nice change of pace after the slower system in X.
So ummm... No more Hope for a better story?
So for US is the release date winter 2011 around Christmas time and early 2012 OR Late 2012 and early 2013.
Whatever. I'll believe it when I see it. Mediocre title after mediocre title has soured me on this company making lame ass promises and delivering an underwhelming experience. 5 years for XIII? Blah. 1 year for XIII-2? Probably more of the same with some tacked on "improvments" like NPCs or towns but still annoying characters and a convoluted story that you can't even be bothered to care about. Most likely reason Versus is being delayed even beyond 2011 is because they're scared shitless it'll be received badly so they're getting Nomura to add on as many shit as he possibly can.
Of course there going to say something like this about the game.....they want it to sell. Dosen't mean it's true, it could have one small mysterious dark moment in the game and that would be it I don't understand the hate on FFX-2...it was pretty fun. I enjoyed that more then FF13. I still remeber LeBlancs first line in battle "You want in on this number. Then show me your moves" :)
I hope this sequel to the worse ff ever will not be the reason for FFversus13 delay. I want versus to come out this DEc
