Amazingly well animated, produced and directed nonsense. Square-enix still are true masters when it comes to CG. but man, what a bunch of melodramatic, over the top garbage the story is.

Those characters we're boring years ago, and still are. Final fantasy games need to start mixing it up more! Seems like there are max five archetypes for character: brooding, cutesy, gentle, cool and angry. They just change the color of the hair, gender and the amount of belt buckles to differentiate them from each other.

So bad. So terribly bad.
Whom do they still want to impress with cutscenes?
FFXIII is definitely one of the most terrible game trilogies I have ever seen and put a stain so dark on the entire series that many will never even touch it (again). By now I just want Square Enix to vanish completely from the face of our planet.

Badass trailer, a shame the gameplay is nowhere near as actiony as they make them.
I enjoyed Lightning's super speed movements as well.

PS. The guy had a cool looking coat.

actually the special move she used is one of her moves in combat, and she can slow time. the gameplay is very action heavy for an RPG.

I meant it looked more like an action game or action RPG, thats something the series isnt exactly known for with its boring menu ordering combat lol

I'm not gonna front, I'm actually excited for this game. It looks like they (Square Enix) added features fans has been asking for. Like going in town, and talking with folks for various mini-missions. Also, I'm likeing the new direction they're heading with Lightning.

    droezelke @KORNdog: sssst, if you say here that the Switch doesn't sell well, you get butchered... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @aphex187: if i was in the market to play MS's "exclusives" at this point i'd definitely build a PC to access them. especially if you're looking for graphical superiority. (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @KORNdog: If you are a pc gamer and fancy a console then PS4 is the only real option to take. Absolutely pointless me buying an XBOX when all their exclusives come to pc anyway. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog like, i expected switch especially to be taking way more wins per month than it has done. i thought it was flying off shelves? (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: also, about NPD. how is PS4 STILL having their best sales month in may 5 years after launch and still being the best selling console? (3 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane That's sales in the US according to NPD. The same has been the case for Sea of Thieves so MS game sales are clearly not affected by game pass at all... (3 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane So State of Decay 2 sold twice as many physical copies as State of decay 1 even though it's available with game pass.... MS has to be very happy with that not to mention digital sales are not included (3 Hours ago)
