**Contains MAJOR spoilers for both the ending of FFXIII-2 and the “Lightning’s Story: Requiem of a Goddess” DLC**
Square-Enix needs to make a /good/ Final Fantasy game. There, I said it.
I swear, if I see a XIII-3 before a versus XIII, I'm gonna lose all faith in square.
I already lost all faith in them. They've been terrible this gen.
Look in the direction of Bravely Default instead, then.
WHEN HAS square-enix made a good ff game...NEVER...
...or they could just do KH3 and save us all the trouble. I'm tired of waiting Square, give me my fancy real-time combat RPG now.
Versus is fancy real time combat RPG as well. But in all seriousness, Square needs to get a move on. Finish Versus, we've been waiting since 2006 for it. Then get started on KH3 and Final Fantasy Next.
I know. I want my real time combat RPG fix NAOOWW.
If they were to announce ANYTHING other than a release date for Versus XIII (God forbid they announced XIII-3...) - I'll be giving up on them! And this is coming from a guy who's been patiently waiting for 6 years. Whatever crap game they decide to do AFTER Versus I don't give a rat's ass about, but - It's Versus' time to shine damn it!!
No but they probably will make it.
Bull, if u played the game u would know they NEED it, the ending was so good and unexpecting in 13-2. need to know wtf happened
If they give me full party control I wouldn't mind it. So long as Versus XIII comes out first! I never beat the first XIII because of the lack of party control. I died so many times because the computer was to stupid to heal me!
Or because you were too lazy to press L1 and switch to the correct paradagim ;p
You died because you don't know how to play the game.
... i dont think the computer is the one to blame in this scenario.
I'm not sure I 100% understood the end of Requiem for the Goddess, so I don't know if XIII-3 needs to be made. There's a kind of cliffhanger I guess, but I don't know where they're gonna go with it. SPOILER ALERT BELOW Lighting says she'll wake at the end of eternity. She's crystallized herself to preserve Serah's memory and to basically contain a non-chaotic timeline. She goes on to say that she'll awaken at the end of eternity, I suppose to banish the chaos and to restore the correct timeline as contained within Serah's memories because she's a seeress, I suppose the cliffhanger then is how and when will this actually happen, but I'm not sure... I don't know, I think the story is good on paper, but I'm not sure how coherently it's told...
if you 5 star both the battle you get an extra cut scene that explains a little bit more
Yeah I got that, that's the scene when she says she'll awaken "at the end of eternity".
So you're basically saying 40 hours of gameplay boils down to one fight. And the worse thing is that neither you and certainly not S/E see how that's a bad thing. How they've supposedly made the series accessible to the main stream, but are only rewarding the most excessive fans. This is almost as big as the technical F-U they gave with FFX-2 when you had to get 100% for the best ending. Which meant at least two play throughs.
I never said it wasn't a bad thing, but after playing the whole game if the ending turns up for £2.30 it's my choice to make. I will buy things for games I enjoy. I know what is not good for the industry but do you really think that one digit among a load is really significant? Yeah it's not what I expect from FF, but it's as close as SE are offering. I can get bet JRPG fixes elsewhere but I don't plan to give up on FF just yet. Honestly though it didn't take me two playthroughs to get the best ending on either the main game or the dlc.
definatly needs a sequel. i mean Caius is still alive and in the 2nd secret ending it shows caius sending us (the player) or noel? to do exactly what he planned so the ending went the way it did. caius is alive, light and serah are Effed, basically dead, well serah is dead, Noel and Hope are in the middle of the end of eternity, aaaand yeah it needs to end. Massive cliffhanger. people will not give credit where its due and admit 13-2 was good, wait i lie, people wont even play the game and will judge it. only the ones who play it know that its actually good
Yeah Caius is still alive, Lightning is slumbering in crystal waiting for the right time to re-emerge, banish the chaos and restore time, and Valfodr says something about a person of legend who will awaken someday when you defeat him or something. There's a lot of loose ends. If Requiem for the Goddess was the last dlc, there kind of has to be some sort of sequel. If XIII-3 was to make as much of an improvement over XIII-2 as XIII-2 did over XIII, it'll definitely be a truly excellent game.
Yes I love the battle system...I wouldn't mind it being on XV either.
Yes. Whether they need to or not though, they are doing it, Requiem of the Goddess pretty much confirms it.
Requiem of the Goddess really didn't confirm anything. It just sort of left a small door open. The question of what they could even do in a XIII-3 still remains.
i want another one, love the final fantasy games, i think 13-2 was the best one since X, also didnt they not register ffx13-3 domain?
NO! They need to finish FFXIV 2.0 on pc and bring it to ps3~
What Square Enix needs to make is a Just Cause 3!
Oh wait Square Enix was just a distributor for Just cause 2
they need to finish versus 13 first and snot announcing games that they cant seem to finish
No, they don't need to. And I don't think they will.
They need to finish Versus. Then work on Kingdom hearts for ps3.
they can barely finish the trilogy "fabula nova crystallis" what makes them need to 13-2. they need to focus on finishing versus 13 instead of these crap sequels!
I hope not. I know I'm not buying it. Sales of XIII-2 should be an indication that people just don't want any more of this universe.
Due to the ending I'm expecting a XIII-3 and its welcome. If It comes out beforre VersusXIII I won't be surprised XIII and XIII-2 use the same engine it would be ez to make another game seems like they planned to anyway.Versus as far as we know isn't gonna appear at E3. XIII-3 possible announcment.
No one NEEDS to do anything in this world. It's what people WANT to do e.g find away to cure diseases if people WANT to do it they will try their best to do it. In this case I think the vast majority of people don't have the WANT for another ff 13 game and what people WANT is ff vs 13. The only NEED that should be going around is like the NEED for food, water etc oh and the NEED for Nomura to get vs done so he can work on kh 3 which I NEED. Contradiction is fun :)
Gonna go ahead and say no.
The first was trash and the second sold poorly. No they need to finish versus XIII.
Making XIII-3 in no way would compromise the production of Versus XIII. Completely different development teams. It's common sense....its like saying the production of Tomb Raider is holding back Versus XIII which is ridiculous.
Like asking if we need another bird flu epidemic.
Square-enix need to look back at old final fantasy games that were successful and improve that further. as of XIII-2 if you finish the game on perfect you will see a ending that leaves open door's for a Prequel
