FFXIII had a terrible story, and bad writing, but solid character concepts. If they could just get their story concepts as good as X, their writing as good as XII, and their characters as good as XIII... all at once, they'd have a KILLER game.

Besides, Deus Ex 3 looks better than XIII-2 and Versus combined.
FFXIII didn't have random battles ;-)
Who cares, I just want to jump through that window and I know that is going to be great
