Lightning Returns new video

Lightning Returns new video

The Japanese release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII wasn't particularly successful from what we've heard, so Square-Enix decided to release a new dev diary video to show us what the game is made of.

I really want this game to be good...but many folks who played it (japanese version) overwhelmingly gave it thumbs down. I'm gonna cancel my pre order, and get it at a later date.....bargain bin purchase.

annoys me they continue spend time and money on this garbage ff13 series

This was surprising given the fan base in japan. Maybe this will push them to finally make a proper title worthy of the name. 13 was such a let down, this company has not aged well, best of luck to them in the coming future.

Getting a Nier vibe form the countryside bits. Doesn't look too bad.

Eh I actually like XII-2 for the most part so i'll check this with the intend of finishing the story at the very least

There is a fan-base for this installment, but, I'm definitely not one. I'm happy it's finally released...so they can devote time to working on FFXV (squee!!!!).

This could not look any more shit to play.

I'm a busy man but I need to take the time to bash this game:
This looks utterly terrible! What a disgusting stain on the SE-brand. How did you manage to fuck up an entire trilogy of FF games?
Cocoon and the L'Cie/Fal'Cie had so much potential but you succeeded in getting everything wrong even in the first game: pathetic story, mary-sue characters, mostly horrendous art direction, somnific combat.
EPIC FAIL!

Yeah, I seen a couple of playthroughs on twitch tv...and those textures looked very PS2-ish. I was kind of surprised by that, because the first Final Fantasy XIII looked gorgeous.

Square-enix.. why did you even bother with this trilogy. What a waste of time.

    Sdarts The only bad thing is that now I'm dying to play Crash Bandicoot. I didn't notice the sounds the first time, but from the second onwards they hit me so hard with nostalgia. Those are great games. (3 Hours ago)
