Addict of Fiction take a look at what could be one of the bumpiest game releases to date, with mistakes being countered by drops of awesome-ness.
Pretty much this
First I was like: Yeah I'll probably rent it. But then, I remembered the shitty combat system from FF-XIII.
Gamefly is shipping it to me, but I have no plans to buy it. I am spending my hard earn money on better games such as Twisted Metal, Kingdom of Amalur, and 2 PlayStation Vita next month :)
Ill buy one playstation vita , but the bundle itself. can't wait.
Q. Are you going to give Final Fantasy XIII-2 A chance? A. Yes, I already bought it.
It's sitting in my PS3 right now, awaiting me to turn it back on and continue where I stopped last night. Answer: My collector's edition feels nice.
Well, the game is pretty much a mashup of Grandia (in that you attack enemies with your weapon to initiate a preemptive attack), Enchanted Arms (auto-battling and monster allies), and Chrono Trigger (time mechanic) with some tweaks to what was already some bad ideas in FFXIII and its own bad ideas. The demo was pretty average at best and the battling became more of a chore that you could thankfully avoid if you wanted. I'm actually on the fence about it. So I don't really know. I don't want another boring FFXIII-like experience.
When it's like around 20 bucks... Yeah sure, why not.
Agreed. When it's cheaper, I probably will. Not fond of spending cash aimlessly.
of course no!!!!!!! im waiting for a real rpg like Ni no kuni!!
Sadden me this game doesn't have a release date outside of Japan as yet :(
Agree. I'm not usually into the more kid-looking JRPG's out there, but this game is just absolutely gorgeous to look at.
Too metrosexual for me...
of course people will. It already has around 300k pre orders. this game is gonna sell pretty well.
"300k pre orders" That doesn't mean everyone who pre-ordered is going to pick it up.
right...... It also does not take into account the amount of people who do not pre order. Most people do not pre order so most of the sales will be after. 300k pre order sure as hell says it will sell at least 400-500k if not more. thats with it already sold 700k in japan alone. Its a million seller in its first month being out worldwide and thats good.
I Didn't have to give it another chance cause i sort of like the first one it wasn't one of Square Enix best the sequel i already have and enjoying it
Debating going and getting it right now. I loved 13 despite its flaws but im not sure i have time for another 60 hr game right now might wait for a price drop.
game is about 25 hours. Much shorter then the 1st.
to more days and it will be in may hands :DDDDDDDD
of course I will The game is amazing
I'm not sure if I'll ever play this one. Certainly not any time soon. If it drops to $20, I'll buy it. 13 and 14 really turned me off the entire franchise.
Nope. Demo sucked. Thank God for demos. I'd be without lots of money in my pocket if I'd purchased all the games I thought would be good but turned out to be turds.
heck no ff13 sucked maybe if it was ps3 only then ya the graphics gave me a headache
Even when I did like the demo and I did platinum FFXIII, it sad me to say not at the moment. I think the game isn't worth of a $60 price tag especially when MOST of the areas are recycle and the great part of the assets are used from FFXIII... even the moggle sounds are recycle from Agito aka Type-0 for God's sake! so whenever the game hit the $40 price tag or less I would definitely give then a chance especially when my friend said that the story sucks and RPG are "supposed to be" story-drive and FFXIII-2 lack that. $40 price tag or less or even better when the FFXIII-2 International (package with all the DLCs and more) comes I would give then a chance.
I gave FF13 a chance despite knowing it would suck before it even released. Still, people said I had to try and that it got better after 30 hours. I had nothing else to play months after it came out so I tried it (auto-battling through the whole game with ease) and it still sucked just like I expected it to. It didn't get better after 30 hours, it just put me in a bigger dungeon with more monsters and some sidequests (except they weren't really sidequest, just more monster fights). I've watched Japanese people play through this game on streams all the way through and even watched them unlock the ending. The story is worse than FF13 as it takes what FF13 wrapped up, breaks it open, and leaves you hanging. I'm assuming that Lightning DLC is really the ending (Ubisoft sold the ending to the first Prince of Persia game this gen and it looks like S-E is following that tactic with this one). Even the people I watched hated playing through this game (especially when they had to do a bunch of tedious shit to get a 20 second "true ending" which was nothing but someone talking to you after the regular ending). tl;dr version: FF13 sucked and so does FF13-2.
Already gave it a chance by download the demo and i don't like it. Better give my bucks to Tales of Graces F and Ni no Kuni.
In all honesty, there is no logical reason for to give this game a "chance."
