Sign me up the battle system was the only reason I enjoyed FF XIII. Nothing like picking the right combination of characters and chaining attacks so bosses go down in minutes.
Except there was one combination that stould head and shoulders above the rest (Fang/Light/Hope), so you would end up only handicapping yourself if you used any other trio. I hope they put more diversity and viable combinations in this one.

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Serah was the Osaka Street Whore right? One of Snowe's sidekicks?

That was Lebreau. Serah is Snow's lover.

I don't mind if they keep the battle system as long as they allow me to modify the AI's behavior, or swap characters mid battle.

I really don't see Kingdom Hearts here. He looks like generic samurai type in sci fi setting to me. Looks sterile like Star Ocean technology.

I'm going to assume that Noel is the old Fang (Fang used to be a boy until they decided Fang is going to be a girl).

I thought the same as well. His outfit definitely has similarities to Fang's.

This is true. I can't remember having Snow or Sazh much in my party. At least I have Vanille in once in a while.

Hell no, that was the only redeeming quality with FFXIII

Do not want mmo feel in my jrpg's , EVER

Lol, she's Lebreau...LeBlanc was in X-2, the crazy hearts woman in love with a cripple.

...It's pretty sad how we don't really remember the characters in 13 because they're just that insignificant...

Hopefully they'll put more effort into adding on to the game's world than they did in X-2. Hated how that game had like 2 original dungeons, and all the rest of the locations were either reused, or boring stone corridors. It would be nice if they manage to make Cocoon feel like a coherent world rather than a hodge-podge of "wouldn't this look neat" levels.

Nice that they're keeping the core battle system from FFXIII, it was a good one. They should revamp the character/weapon leveling systems though, they were way too tedious in XIII

Think it'll have towns? Sorry, I just had to! I wonder how many assets they have to use from XIII. Expect to see a lot of reusing of models and stuff. Specially in how fast this game is coming out.
 

Yoshichan

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

There's more micromanagement needed in FFXIII than every main FF combined. The hell you talking about?

I still enjoyed FFXIII, despite all it's faults. I hope they take all the feedback into account this time and try to open the game up a bit.
And add a hard mode or something. FFXIII was the easiest FF ever and that's what made it so excurciatingly boring (at least until you got to Gran Pulse late in the game).

Wikipedia time!

Watch the ending on Youtube as well. It's pretty, if nothing else.

It already has a town:

When her town is suddenly overrun by monsters.

:p

Edit: I am now glad I didn't take the time to finish that game.
The biggest spoiler is even on the box itself (i.e. the logo), so eh.

oh boy I cant wait to hit x for another 100 hours.

throw in some shifts for good measure.

Isn't this pretty much any RPG? Hit X, alilttle up/down, and more X's.

I liked the combat it just need some gambits, leader switching ability, and alot more towns/open areas. Then we will have a pretty good FF IMO.
