I'm pleasantly surprised they actually showed some gameplay, but it's still not quite enough to convince me to buy yet. I want to see how it's all going to tie together and if they fix the exp growth system to be a little more open-ended and the combat to be a little more experiment friendly.

The fact is that, the E3 trailer was obviously designed to exclude all of the main playable cast except Lightning, except that they threw in that final curve ball that she is presumed dead.

The trailer itself had some rather strange points of contention.

1. For one, why the hell would Serah call 'Lightning' 'Lightning' at that point in time? Even Snow called Lightning by her real name at the end of XIII.

2. The way Lightning implied, she seems to want to let people assume she is dead while she goes off doing her thing. And her last sentence possibly forebodes that Serah alone knows about it.

3. Lightning + Odin vs Chaos Bahamut.

4. Noel running through seemingly 'unstable rifts' towards a gate. And the gameplay demo screenshots also indicate that Noel is a newcomer and does not know the places around well.

5. Noel's words... "A future... where everyone lives."

I put on my detective cap and proclaim these from those 2 minutes...

Quote:
Noel came from the future to change the past, he is the Future Trunks of Final Fantasy XIII.

And Serah is his mother!

Well good job done by the trailer to leave me utterly confused on what is going to be happening in this sequel . Certainly the story doesn't appear to be what I figured it would be after the ending of XIII.

Still should be interesting to have Serah playing much more of an active role and getting to understand this Noel guy. Would agree that it's probable he's kind of a Future Trunks trying to change things so the outcome is better.

...You can hit me later but I think Noel looks like Hope in a way o.o;
.........and I bet Lightning is his mother !
He wanted to go to the past so that she can save her mother !

I'm not sold on this as much as I was when we first heard about it.

I don't like Noel being the protagonist all of a sudden, but this DOES appear to be the very beginning of the game so who the hell knows what's going to happen.

I'm crossing my fingers that they animate Episode i and not just assume people will read it themselves. If I remember right, Snow is alive at the end of it right?
I'm sure they excluded him in the trailer just to make it more exciting.

Just saw the XIII-2 E3 trailer... meh. Yeah, ok, Lightning facing off against that dark Bahamut (flying dragon) was visually impressive... still, I'm not excited at all for this game.

FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0, this is the game I'm hyped and excited about. If they port this game to the PS3 like they did for Monster Hunter 3, I would faint from over-excitement.

Seems like they've made some improvements to the battle system. You actually have to do something more than change paradigms and hit X now. The dungeons are more than giant hallways and it looks like there might even be some towns this time. It seems like they listened to the complaints.

About Snow's absence... yeah, I don't care. At all. I'm just glad Serah is a playable character now.

Okay, if that is, in fact, the case, or anything like it, I will calm down a bit and more strongly consider purchasing the game.

I would be exceedingly pissed off if Lightning was reduced to a minor character role in this. She's the freakin' cover character of XIII. She's my damn PS3 homepage background image. She'd better be well and good all over XIII-2.

Also, interesting call on the name calling part. But I have an awful memory; when does Serah ever call Lightning
Spoiler for Lightning's real name:
in FF-XIII? I don't ever remember her real name actually being used during the game. Don't you just learn about it in an encyclopedia update?

Whoopee! Dungeons don't seem to be long frigging corridors anymore, though still unsold if there's going to be actual exploration this time around (ie. branching pathways).

And confirmation that Laura Bailey still as Serah? HELLZ YEAH! Definite day one just for that.

As for Snow vs Noel... still undecided on which side of the ship battle I am there.

She might not be the actual main character but she still seems extremely important overall. I'm just happy Serah gets to be playable this time around. (I use Lightning's background as well btw, but only because I failed at getting Serah's. :c)

What was the unlock for getting Serah's?

I was fully prepared to replay the final boss fight as many times as I had to in order to get Lightning's background image. Fortunately, my way of playing RPGs allowed me to blitz the final boss and easily 5-star the sequence.

As long as Lightning is not ACTUALLY dead and she's not just playable in a dream-sequence (shades of FFVII?), I'll be somewhat placated.

'Serah' said that during an event in Gran Pulse.

Hm...I guess that means that we still can't change leader during battle?

Did you see the moogle flying around the new dude? IT GLOWED.

Yes, that was my personal highlight XD


I'm unsure if I'll get the game on day one ... I'm kinda skeptic how entertaining it'll be. I'm let down by the prospect of a full new cast, but a big surprise might be as well worth it. Still skeptic, my hype for XIII wasn't met so ... I might await the reviews instead of preordering like usual.
.... unless you can always have that awesome moogle flying around you! X3

The one and only time anyone used it iirc.

As long as the characters are somewhat more unique, I'll check it out...but FFXIII didn't leave much in the development section; pretty standard crystarium paths, with some being practically impossible to use till later on, but in the end everyone maxes everything in a very FFX way. The only condition for the meta-game was having Fang or Vanille as synergists for the advanced buffs...

When considering the fact that a game over only occurs when the leader dies, changing leaders during battle wouldn't be so fair.

And because I somehow messed up on getting the Treasure Hunter trophy (I even had a guide with me, I must've missed an item or two to make), I wasnt able to get both Serah and Fang as backgrounds. :/

Here's to hoping they'll include background unlocks again in XIII-2. xP
