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.

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.

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (54 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (2 Hours ago)

    nostradamus Prey, just reminded me when i used to lure headcrabs/zombies in Half-Life 1 (1%Hp/Suit), to lasers and eletrick shock cables to zap'em withou loss of ammo. It's like we needed a whole generation to (2 Hours ago)

    Loakum Stranger Things is such a amazing show! Just finished season 2, episode 7 (I won't post spoilers). (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I mean, didn't you just buy an X to play the same games with better visuals? Your stance doesn't really seem very consistent tbh. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog If you have no Interest in either of those things your only option is to move onto some other hobby. Because you're not going to see any mainstream Dev making something truly unique...ever. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: whether I sound like a snob or not. It's the truth. The industry is all about playing it safe now. If your after original experiences you have 2 options. Indie or VR (usually also indie) (3 Hours ago)
