I'll just be over here, horrified at this DLC costume in particular.

Evil turned Lightning? The true final boss revealed!


Well isn't my face red.


May this adorable baby duckling take the attention of me in what little ways it can!



It's too late to duck and cover.

Classic Square!  One step forward, one step back!  They look like PS2 Moogles too.. =/

But I actually like the one that WASN'T posted the most.  I love that burgundy colour...and the weird bow-and-arrow-looking crotch piece.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were all still alive. They owed Lightning a costume for completing a side-quest, and this was the best they could come up with. Now if all of them were equipped with Snow Mufflers then Lightning would literally become the Juggernaut Bitch! She could just bullrush Behemoths and cast them aside like blowup dolls.



Like so.

What you really wanted to post is something like this, right?

Why are you teasing me for? We went through this dumb thing already before. :|

Honestly, that is probably a little better than I would have expected. It managed to keep 50% of the fans from FFXIII-2. That is a lot better than FXIII-2 managed. The third in a trilogy is almost always going to be the worst performing.

I'm actually interested in playing this and 13-2, but I'll wait for the eventual GOTY repackaging.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

XIII-2 did get a re-release in Japan but the same was not made for other territories.

A sensible reaction after spoiling myself on the story.

It's sounding really weak thus far so I'm definitely waiting on price plummets this time.

FWIW I thought XIII-2 was a great RPG, better than XIII in pretty much every way possible.

I don't think Lightning Returns will be able to top it. But that's probably because I fell in love with all the time travel (and the ability to *re-do* a time/place scenario to open alternate paths). Not sure how Lightning Returns will hold my interest. But we'll see!

I got it preordered and I heard the Cloud preorder DLC is actually really good.... but yeah, the more I hear between dubious plot elements, half-baked gameplay, and technical issues, I think I'm gonna wait till it's $20 or less -- I think I'll justify it more there.

And I did like FF13-2 as well (well, not so much its plot... amusing?  Definitely.  Well-written?  Aaaaoo?)
