@forevercloud3000: I don't know...maybe I'm just really pessimistic towards Square. I mean, I HOPE they had a bunch of amazing ideas that are being implemented in FFXIII-2. Because it would be great to see what the game could have been if that is true. But I'm not holding my breath. This is the company that has come up with some pretty awful games this gen...hell, even last gen they made some pretty awful games. And they had no excuse for those ones (they couldn't really blame...

"At least Final Fantasy XIII-2 cant be any worse than FFX-2."

I don't know...Have you played FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus? Square must have been high when they came up with some of that game's awful ideas. D:

@WhiteLightning: I wouldn't be surprised if Square had plans for FFXIII-2 all along. They would have come up with something for a sequel, even if it made no sense in context of the original game (*cough*just like FFX-2 and FFVII:DoC*cough*)

I don't know why Square thought it would be a good idea to completely revamp the FF battle system for FFXIII. They should have just updated the FFX-2 battle system and run with that. FFX-2 might not have been the best FF game in the world, but it did have a really good fast-paced battle system. Dare I say, one of the best battle systems in the series.

I mentioned this in another article but...I miss the more strategy-based battle systems of earlier FF games. I miss being ...

I really doubt FFXIII would have been THAT better of a game even if it had been a console exclusive. In the end it was Square's fault for not making a decent game. They made a lot of stupid design choices (awkward automatic battle system, linear world, boring samey locations, lack of different enemies, convoluted and dry plot, mostly unmemorable music, etc).

They tried too hard to create an RPG that was unique and revolutionary, and forgot that the main thing fans want to...

It's been a while since I played Twin Snakes so I might be wrong, but didn't most of the original voice actors return for that game? I remember being so disappointed with the new recordings...especially Mei Ling and Naomi (who mysteriously lost their accents after MGS1)...

I can't imagine Silent Hill without Akira Yamaoka's music.

His music has been a part of the series for so long, it's as though it's a part of Silent Hill itself. :O

Answer the unanswered questions!

- What happened to all the viruses that were sold on the Black Market? This means there are companies all over the world with unstable viruses like the T-virus and G-virus.
- What happened to Sherry Birkin?
- What happened to Steve Burnside and Nosferatu? Wesker said he had plans to resurrect them both. So did he?
- Who is the "Agency" at war with if Umbrella doesn't exist anymore?
- According to R...

Kudos for mentioning Blood Omen 3. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE a new Legacy of Kain game (preferably one that Sony buys the rights to, so that Amy Hennig can write it).

It wasn't mentioned in this article, but I did a quick google of Zelda cosplayers and her name was one of the first ones to come up, so I put it in the description for anyone who was interested. I'm guessing that's her 'cosplay name' or something.

"I hated having to go to a separate screen to battle, is this the PS1 era again?"

Maybe I'm alone here, but I didn't mind needing to shift to a battle screen. I've never seen it as an "outdated" concept. Just a style choice that many RPGs have.

With that being said, I really wasn't a fan of any other aspect of FFXIII's battle system. Why bother coming up with your own strategy when the game does most of it for you? As l...

How about a release date, Square?

NGL, I was expecting a trainwreck...but that actually doesn't look too bad. Not great, but not bad either.

Why not round it up to a 9.7/10?

1954d ago 2 agree0 disagreeView comment

It's a new game alltogether. New story, new characters, new battle system, etc.

Squaren's original plan was that it was going to have a connection to FFXIII and FFXIII:Agito (now known as: FF-Type 0)...but I think they dropped that idea a while ago.

The only thing that matters is whether or not the game is good in the end. And if making a game multiplatform genuinely makes a Square game a worse game, then Square really need to fire some people on their team. If they had no problem making amazing games on Nintendo and PSOne consoles (which had much more limited technology than the 360), they should have no problem making a multiplatform games on HD consoles either.

I know a lot of people like to blame the 360 for FFXIII&...

True, but the point is that their outfits are based on enough realism to make them believable for the person playing. The STARS (and Raccoon City police force) wear a sort of modified police uniform and the BSAA wear modified army fatigues, so it's easy to believe they are either a police force (in STARS case) or special force (in the BSAA's case) of some kind. It's not TOO much of a stretch of the imagination that these characters have such a job.

Meanwhile Rache...

IDK a lot of people say Cloud was just as emo as Squall, but I don't agree. The Cloud from the Compilation might be pretty moody, bu the Cloud from the original game was pretty chipper and upbeat. Hell, he was basically the dorky butt-of-all-jokes to everyone else on his team. He might have started off fairly grumpy and aloof in Midgar, but by the time they all reached Kalm, he opened up and became a much more talkative and friendly guy.

I know people say that was Zack&#...

For all its flaws and silly plotholes, FFVIII really is an amazing game. Hell, it's easily one of my favorite games. And I have played through it multiple times, and still don't think I've done everything that can be done in the game. A lot of people complain about the annoying characters or the nonsensical third and fourth discs, but I'd give anything to play a new FF game with that much thought and heart put into it.
