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.

Alright. But to be fair, I too, am well aware of the fact that Uematsu's past his musical prime barring some kind of random musical experimental success.

Plus, I genuinely don't remember much from the game's soundtrack beyond the completely out-of-place J-Death Metal, and the fact that at one point during the LP of the game I was watching, the LPers decided to play some Xenoblade music over the game's (due to the boredom of grinding to MAXIMUM POWAR!!!). The game just seem to play it incredibly safe outside of the Death Metal, just like it did with the gameplay (outside of the platforming) by adopting towns, NPCs, collectathons, time travel, reducing playable caricatures from 6 to 2, and adding recruitable monster party members.

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.

Heart of Chaos, Eclipse and Eclipse Aggressive Mix, Divine Conflict, Historia Crux,  Caius' Theme, Labyrinth of Chaos, Eternal Paradox... wait, sorry, you were wanting us to not have an answer, right?  :)

I rescind my previous comments and concede my point.

Edit: Jesus Christ; I am an idiot! The idea that I was trying to convey was that I 'cede my argument'. "Concede my point." sounds way too much like terrible innuendo ("All right baby, you win. I concede my point to your hole.").

Here's the ACTUAL outfit.  Daresay the "guess" joke image was almost right.
I *kinda* like it, it's clearly going for "cool looking"; but it's also entirely too busy for me to really dig it.  A siliconera user dubbed it "awesomely stupid", and I like that.

Now for gameplay screenies and trailers, please!!

I love how many exclamation marks Japanese media uses.

I like what I've seen in the trailer so far. Lightning looks very stunning in her new wardrobe too.

Why does this game exist?  I completely fail to understand what S-E is thinking.  People who liked XIII (I don't understand them, but they exist) aren't going to want a completely different kind of gameplay in the third game.  People who hated XIII and didn't play/finish it or XIII-2 aren't going to jump in at this point because they're not going to have a clue what's going on.  XIII-2 didn't sell even close to what XIII did so there are a lot of those people.

Lightning is a terrible character and I find S-E's completely insistence on pushing her in everything they make these days to be baffling.  She's not Cloud no matter how much they wish she was (mind you I don't think Cloud is a very good character either, but he is at least genuinely popular rather than simply manufactured to be as such).  Not to mention that outfit...even by JRPG standards it is completely bizarre and impractical.  Such a complete mish-mash of themes...it's like they grabbed a bunch of crap from the fetish store with their eyes closed and insisted that Lightning wear all of it...at the same time.

S-E, stop milking this crap and localize Type-0.

Pretty sure that XIV has something to do with the whole thing of XIII becoming a "saga", that and in the 'Requiem of the Goddess' DLC chapter they left the story of XIII-2 complete but Lightning's story is still not finished (retcons and all).

Why do I get a feeling there's gonna be cross-promotional marketing to release those sunglasses (hopefully in a less pretentious/ostentatious design...).

I was hoping her outfit would look better it context and moving around... it looked stupider.

The town looks pretty... in a Majora's Mask kind of way.
