Turning Serah into some goth chick who rambles in bullshit forcibly dramatic 2deep4u pseudointellectual Kingdom Hearts doomsdayspeak instead some derpy optimistic genki girl just... isn't Serah to me. She was better off staying dead. At least then she would have stayed pure.

It's like, hey, we're going to bring Darth Vader back to life for Episode VII, but now he wears pink and has a Yosemite Sam shtick for some reason. It goes against the entire premise of the character. I didn't even change her personality that much when I wrote that story where she's brainwashed by Not Kyubey and goes on a killing spree.

edit: why is she wearing nylons with little crosses on them? SERAH IS NOT GOTHLOLI.

I'm reading into this a little bit more, and the sad part is I think her design is kind of interesting. It's just sooo not Serah. And if this "Lumina" girl is identical to Serah for some important plot-related (like she's using Serah's image to fuck with Lightning and deceive her), durrrr maybe you shouldn't be acting all creepy and do blatantly villainous things the moment you first meet Lightning.

I'd probably buy the PAK figure of her if they ever made one.

So the plot of the first two games was you were going through hell and back to prevent the end of the world.

Now the plot to FFXIII-3 seems to be "lol fuck you Third Impact still happens anyway and all you can do is evacuate a limited number of people to a more stable world."

And fanboys across the oceans of Internetria are defending this trite with arguments of how it's "darker" and "more realistic" that you can't actually save the world.

Uh, no. That's not how that works. When you have two games building up to the idea that you're relating with character's struggle and it's leading somewhere and everything you do actually means something, you're just pissing all over the audience and wasting their time when you randomly pull the rug out from under them. That's why Mass Effect 3 was torn to shreds when it was released. Three whole games of being told all of your choices will make a difference in the end, and then LOL NOPE THE LIGHT CHANGES COLORS.
so trashy.




This is probably going to be my thing from now on. I hope you guys like it.

The FF13 saga is apparently the gaming equivalent of Rebuild of Evangelion. I mean ending FF13-2 is basically the same as 2.0's ending+3.0's premise and they made the entire world dependent on another person for the second time. Serah already died twice and it appears the writer wants to revive her. I know this is Final FANTASY but there is a limit to reviving others.

Some of you guys sure know an awful lot about the plot of a game yet to be released.

Seriously though, whether Lumina is Serah or not (Lightning sure doesn't seem to recongize her), complaining about that when we know nothing isn't constructive. Even if she does happen to be her revived or whatnot, its hardly out of the realm possiblity for this series. Whatever the case it may be save the like or hate till when the game drops.

Nah, plenty of people like FFXIII's story even on here. There isn't an FF that doesn't have it's fans.

Doesn't that hint at a really forced and stupid amnesia angle as it is?

Stories in the vast majority of video games are awful, why do people still care? Just give me a game that's fun to play.

Because for a lot of people, if the story is bad then the game isn't fun to them? Some people only care about gameplay, but others care about the whole package.

No, I mean she just speaks to as she would anyone else. No reaction of familiarity at all that usually happens with amnesia.

They must not find a lot of games enjoyable then, especially JRPGs.

What's with the purplish looking one? Is it supposed to be a femme-Caius costume?

Yet watch as all the complainers mysteriously play the game anyway for some reason.
