This is my first time ever playing a final fantasy game and its trash. Sorry to the fans but I couldn't get into it.

I finally played the demo and its amazing! Everything feel so much better then FFXIII. I played it on the 360 and It looked really good. The 360 version of FFXIII had a lot of problem so I'm glad they made a good 360 version this time.

So glad I preodered the Collector Edition. Can't wait for full game!

I actually thought the demo was BRILLIANT! It has definately restored my fate in the game. I can see myself having a blast with it. Pre-ordered!

god, now i know that resolution means jack shit when it comes to bad frame-rate. there is virtualy no difference in terms of FFXIII multiplatform, even with apart resolutions, but now having a 25 constant framerate is just garbage.

What a dreadful demo. A dull as can be boss battle followed by a run around a basic town with a dreadful frame rate. The awful, awful american dub is still present too, with whiny, nasal, irritating teen voices still in place.

It's a train wreck.

Everyone got their own opinions I guess. :)

I though it was a great demo. This is what a demo should be. It was long(if you do all the side quest and exploration) and it give you a lot of freedom.

As someone who enjoyed but didn't love FFXIII I don't know how to feel about the demo. On the one hand it's far less linear and the combat is more fine tuned. On the other hand I can't stand any of the new characters, and the visuals and framerate seem worse than the original.

When will Japanese developers stop catering only to Japanese tastes? Making Serah the main character has got to be the strangest decision I've ever seen. I'd be embarrassed if someone walked in and saw me prancing around as her.

It's only Square who think women run in such a bizarre fashion.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
