  1. Another game I want, and will no doubt buy day 1. Problem is i’m no where near finishing FF13.

  2. Sweeeeeeet! Good timing for me.

  3. I’m going to wait for the review as i am very concerned that we may end up with another 10-2. The story of 13-2 seems to be simular. Find lighting is the same as finding tidus. Plus, chances are that i will be trying to catch up on this year’s games. :)I have yet to complete 13. :O I just keep getting bored of it, so chances are that i may not like 13-2

    • nothing wrong with x-2 steven. Told you yesterday :P

    • What put me off X-2 wasn’t the “finding Tidus” part, but the battle system with the dresses. I thought it was pretty weird that you could miss special dresses because they were optional. At the end of the game Pain didn’t have her special dress and I felt pretty bummed about that. Imagine VII without Limits or IX without Trance states for certain characters.
      Despite all the hate towards XIII’s battle system, I loved it very much. It came down to reacting to your enemies moves within seconds or less by changing your paradigm and work out a strategy by combining different sets to succeed.
      Add a great story to that and you have a very happy KeRaSh.
      It’s a shame we have to wait until February. I hope Ico, SotC, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Journey, Borderlands (3rd playthrough), Minecraft can keep me busy until then… Well, now that I made a list I’m pretty sure I will be fine. :D

  4. I loved FF13 but 120 hours in and still have done all the missions, I will be keeping an eye out for this one

  5. Final Fantasy XIII-2? Why is it not called Final Fantasy XIV?

    • Because it is a sequel to 13 and FF games are generally seprate games that have nothing to do with each other. :)

      • This, and FFXIV already exists. It’s the second FF MMO (FFXI was the first one) that is currently only playable on the PC.

    • plus FF14 is online

    • Each number is a completely different universe, with just a few carry-overs just so you know it’s a FF that you’re playing (like Cid, chocabo’s etc). That the system they adopted in the beginning and if they changed it now it would be confusing.

      • Dammit, sorry. I blame my phone.

    • Ah ok, thanks for the info. Never played a Final Fantasy game so wasn’t sure what the reasons were.

  6. Wasn’t the Final Fantasy in Zanarkand?

  7. Another game on the preorder list. Thankfully not November or December otherwise I may have to sell my body.

    • With you there Roynaldo! The next three months are looking to be quite expensive.

    • I’d rather sell my body and have this still in 2011 than having to wait until February… Good thing I have the funds to buy games when I want to buy them without having to drop the trousers.
      This doesn’t mean I would decline an offer from Bar Refaeli to be her pleasure boy in exchange for video games…

  8. ‘…this side of the holidays…’ – gone all American on us TC? Did you really mean to say ‘…this side of Christmas…’?

  9. I cant wait for this, when they announced it I thought we would be waiting a lot longer for its release. So many games I want are coming out, better start saving lol

  10. I can’t believe that it is so soon! I just about finished 13 in 200 hours and hopefully this is as great or even better!

    • Oh my, that’s a lot. I hope finishing the treasure hunter trophy doesn’t take me that long as it’s the only thing I have left to do (other than beat mission 64 with 5 stars) n I’m 85 hours in.
