It sounds like they're actually doing some interesting things for this game.  I just wish they were doing them in a game that had nothing to do with FFXIII.

you call that interesting? to me interesting would be reuniting FF13 cast along with noah and using FFX battle system.

I'm still scratching my head as to why they insist on pushing more and more games in this world, given that direct sequels in FF seemed to have always done worse than the original, and FFXIII had a relatively mixed reception. Was this the plan all along or something?

That's the beauty of opinions.

I'm personally not quite sure what to think about this game yet, though.  I like what they're doing with the world, and some of the details sound interesting, but from a story perspective, I can't really say I'm too fond of the direction they took Lightning in XIII-2. Overall, I don't think we've nearly enough information to make any final decisions on the game's quality just yet.

I doubt it. XIII-2 begins with a huge retcon of the ending of XIII.

The music and gameplay of 13-2 were pretty damn good if it means anything.... unfortunately the rest was shit (mainly plot).

Cheaper to make the game due to reusing things, I'm guessing.

That, and supposedly they had quite a number of things left over from XIII-1 that they didn't want to go to waste.

In my opinion, as Toriyama said, they're just Call of Dutying the licence. Either way you put it, one Final Fantasy a year (a year and a half precisely), even sold at 2.5 or 3 millions is much more lucrative than one big Final Fantasy every four years costing 100 million dollars. Plus, with this Final Fantasy XIII saga, Square can save money on the artistic direction, the conception of the world, etc. In short on every aspect of the previous games that are reused in the next.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 composers reprise their roles for Lightning Returns -- Source: Nova Crystallis

"Familiar faces will be heading up the score to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Confirmed via a poster given away at Distant Worlds in Chicago, composers Masashi Hamauzu, Naoshi Mizuta, and Mitsuto Suzuki will be lending their talents once again to the final chapter in Lightning's saga."

Moar Deathclok-wannabe Chocobo/Boss Fight themes? :laffo:

Or were these the people who composed the bland elevator music used in the rest of XIII-2?

Sure, and every soundtrack of FF has to be composed only by Uematsu because every other mofo is a talentless losers according to the most deluded fans of the series.

Alright. Then name or link one memorable track from FFXIII-2 (that wasn't one of those goofy Death Metal tracks). Go on, I'll wait.

I'm not going to play that game. I respect everyone's opinion about the series but sometimes the hate gets ridiculous.
