Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII won't let you use MP to heal -- Source: Siliconera

Is said that 'Glory Points' are called 'Energy Points' in the English version.*

Lightning Returns adds SNS boss battle score upload -- Source: Gematsu

"When you clear boss battles and such in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, you can upload your resulting score to social networking services like Facebook or Twitter, the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation reveals.

Additionally, you'll be able to freely change the color of Lightning's various outfits (though it's not clear if this is possible for all of her outfits)."

Goddammit Japan! First question is about her fucking armpits. :uugh:

Also apparently Lightning has been upgraded from C rank to D rank. At least they revealed new previous FF heroine outfits for her to wear, including that doofy Valkyrie Chrysler outfit that what's her face wore in one of the loosely connected spinoff FF titles.

At least they admitted the breast size thing, and daresay it was for "good" reasons.  I remember Kiera Knightley talked about how they "shadowed her boobs" to make her ironing-board chest look like it's an actual size than -AA.  The armpit thing though.....wth......

The game DOES look pretty.  I might preorder and see how it goes.  If the reviews suck, then I'll take it back.

The guy who asked the question definitively plays Touhou games.

Kotaku's is reporting boob-jiggling physics are in.

Not surprised more "I hope it actually looks realistic if they're going to do it".

Agreed.

Maybe it's because I'm so desensitized from playing Japanese games most of my life, but, er, this isn't really a big deal to me. In fact, I'm baffled at the response. Larger breasts does not mean she has less of a personality.

^Yeah... this whole deal is pretty normal to me since I've always been more into Japanese games. But also this was discussed before of how in the West a lot of people have double standards with sexual stuff in their entertainment, or whatever.

Honestly, I'd be surprised if she did manage to have even less of a personality than before given how little she had to begin with.

But I thought all breasts bounced at the slightest change in barometric pressure?

But you honestly never cared about any this from the beginning for whatever reason. I mean, is not like you care if someone comes to you and explains what he/she likes or sees in Lightning's personality as appealing.

Most of the time I feel ambivalence towars the characters in XIII but I don't really dislike them.

I'm actually a big fan of optional conversation in games.  Tales titles, Last of Us, and why they ever forgot about the ATE system from FFIX is beyong me.  I think FF13 reeaaallly could have benefit from more character interaction, but too often cinematics were about fleshing plot and the "teen drama" among the characters.

That's the point... big part of the narrative (so far) has been focused on the mythos because that's what everything comes down to.

I don't know about the teen drama part in your post though. I know what you mean, but I never got that the drama in the story was superfluous. In what I think XIII failed though was the way a big chunk of that drama was presented, I'm not saying that is bad but I understand all bitching and moaning that there has been with fans feeling so bothered by the story and characters in the XIII series.

The entire story is told in a very Japanese manner and it doesn't feel as "universal" or relatable as how themes are presented in some others games in the main series. Personally I don't mind but I would like to see Final Fantasy XV bringing back the weight of drama backed up by the scenario and the characters, not just having it there for the sake of it.

Though just to be clear I do think there are parts in XIII and XIII-2 that have a good balance in their drama, but most of it is just there to keep the tone of the narrative going.
