  1. Already?

  2. The Lighting Saga? Must be a spin off from the Lightning Saga. ^^

  3. Final Fantasy XIII-2-2

  4. If this game comes out before Final Fantasy Versus XIII, tables will be flipped…

  5. Vita version?

  6. I still haven’t managed to finish XIII-2, but honestly I would probably get this anyway.

  7. I’m actually quite chuffed that they are making another.
    Loved XIII except the tortoise grinding at the end and the sequel was pretty good too imo! Roll on XIII-3 :D

  8. This has pissed me off to no end (npi).
    Every final fantasy title made in the last half decade can burn with firaga, concentrate on a good FF game and stop making confusing spin off titles, MMO’s with a collision course set to failure and sequels that contradict any thread of chronology that the FF series has.
    N.B. I’m a huge FF fan.

    • What are you even on about?

      • I’m talking about X-2, XI, XII, XIII, XIII-2 & XIV all being terrible games that have strayed so far off the original premise that they shouldn’t even have FInal Fantasy in their title.
        When I pointed out that I was a huge FF fan it was because I’m still clinging on to the hope that Versus arrives on the shelves the way it’s been described to me. As a proper final fantasy game not turn based Tomb Raider or WoW with a FF costume on.

      • Have you even played FFXI or are you just hating on it because it required a monthly fee? FFXI was probably THE best Final Fantasy game I’ve ever played, and I’m a huge FFVII fanboy. Needless to say I think it’s the best MMO out there. FFXIV 2.0 will carry that legacy on.

      • I wouldn’t say I hate FFXI because of subscription, in fact I wouldn’t even say that I hate it. Your probably right in saying that it was the best MMO to date but I found it and XIV very generic graphically and I was never really hooked in by any quests or wanted to play it as a multiplayer..
        TBH I’m just throwing my toys out of my pram because the last good FF (in my opinion) was X and it feels like I’ve been waiting on a proper FF for over a decade.

      • Back in the days I had no girl that wanted attention and was smart enough to get through school without any serious effort so I was able to spend quite some time in FFXI. Let me tell you, it was a blast. Like with any FF game, it takes some time to get to the real content but once you start experiencing that, you wouldn’t want to stop. By the ned of my FFXI time theres was so much stuff to do, I didn’t even know where to begin. The content was really interesting and compared to every other MMO of those times, it looked fantastic. There were some really stunning landscapes and the music is probably still my all time favourite OST. I wish I could run a private FFXI server just to relive some of the things I experienced in that game without having to pay a monthly fee or grind through weeks of leveling up.
        I still have hope that FFXIV can get to where FFXI once was. FFXI was crap for the whole first year but we never got to experience that because it was JP exclusive at that time. FFXIV will be great once 2.0 comes out and I will definitely return to Eorzea. :)

  9. FFS, can’t they leave F13 alone and start brainstorming ideas for FF15(provided 13verus is not 15)? As FF13-2 commited the worst crime in the history of gaming. It murdered the chocobo theme song! T-T

    Lighting doesn’t seem to be that interesting enough to justify having 2 sequels. In fact, i can’t remeber one thing that made her stand out. :O As usually, FF protaganists have one thing that you can remeber about them. Cloud, defies gravity with his hair, Squall, moody emo git etc..
