Default Final Fantasy XIII

****** POSSIBLE PLOT SPOILERS IN THIS THREAD *****
*********** READ AT YOUR OWN RISK **************



I'm really looking forward to this game. I'm not even a fan of the Final Fantasy series, but I just need something different. It seems like every game that comes out these days is the same; First Person Shooter or Hack and Slash Action game. I try to play games like MW2 and Bayonetta.. but it just feels like the same ole shyt I've done a million times (probably because it is).

Anyway, I've been looking up some reviews on the Japanese version of FF XIII, and it looks really cool. It's been a long time since I played a Japanese turn-based RPG, so I can't wait.

Here is a decent clip of the gameplay from the already released Japanese version:


edit: Possible SPOILER footage if you speak Japanese or know the FF series!!!

Can't wait for this game. I've been waiting for a new FF this generation for the longest and it looks like it's gonna be a blast. People who imported the japanese version are comparing this to FFX and complaining about it being "linear" but I for one loved FFX, and as long as the story and gameplay is great(which I hear they are) then I'm set. Did I mention that this is probably the best looking PS3 game based on just the trailers released!?

In all fairness, FFX was VERY linear and in my opinion, had one of the least interesting characters in Tidus.

I'm still gonna pre-order the game. Can't wait to play it. I need some JRPG fix. I haven't played a decent one since FF12 and Rogue Galaxy.

Perhaps a lot of RPG heads will go to this thread... Is Star Ocean the Last Hope a good enough game?

FF12 was terrible story/character wise. If it wasn't for the gameplay I'd return it the day I bought it lol. I loved star ocean 4, a lot of people didn't like it but I'm a JRPG nut so.....

I see that you mean. I would like the story to have Balthier and his playboy bunny. I read somewhere that the main character was supposed to be Basch but they felt he was too "manly" so decided it be Vaan.

IMO if you're wearing green shorts to battle then you could use some more "man" in you.

Well FFXIII comes out in a few days. I'll just wait for it rather than Star Ocean INternational. But if if there came a shortage in games I'll definitely give Star Ocean a try.

How about White Knight Chronicles? Have you played it?

I haven't played a Final Fantasy game in forever? Once they got all cutsceney, I lost interest. The combat system sounds interesting. Will this game have online multiplayer?

Really? I thought FFXIII would be something you'd definitely play.

If you wanna complain about cutscenes then take a peek at FF8. Now that was just pushing it. Endless Rinoa / Squall crap in the final 2 discs.

I wish they'd make a remake of FF6

I haven't played a FF game since Nintendo I think. I assumed they were all linear these days... or certainly not a sandbox game like many MMORPG's today try to be.

Personally, I prefer sandbox games... but there is really only one good (true) sandbox game on the market today (Darkfall), and I don't mind a linear game if it has a good story.

I'm watching Spurs vs. Nugs right now, and the announcer just said, "The NBA All-Star game, brought to you by Final Fantasy 8...".


Apparently nobody taught him Roman Numerals!
