That first pic might as well be the beach scene from the first game or even anything from chapters 7 and 12, I don't see any indication of a fully explorabe town in that pic.

As for the second pic, I think I see boobs.

Since we're analyzing...



Moogles accompany you through some places apparently.



A puzzle area called Unstable Rift? You have the ability to retry by pressing square.



Pulseworker fighting along side Serah and dudeFang. This could indicate some sort of recruiting sub-mechanic or mini-game.


Cinematic Action, also known as QTEs.



The buildings in the background look like present day, real world ones. Those vines growing on the walls and ceiling and the overall look of the city could mean it is another abandoned one with old architecture, similar to Oerba.

The ability to recruit monsters would be nice.

I just noticed the name of the paradigm in the third pic, it's called cerberus, that's new. I guess new paradigms could also mean new classes.

Well..it looks pretty?  Haha.  I really just didn't dig FFXIII, as much as I would have liked to.  Plus, apparently im a horrible player cause I reached the one part where you could actually explore a bit and I just got raped by everything I encountered and just rage quitted.  Still, I will at least give this a rent via gamefly..kind how I do most of my gaming these days since the money is tight.  One can only hope they listened to feedback somewhere, cause then it at least shows they don't completely have their heads up their asses.

That moogle is ugly as fuck. ;_;

And the story seems that is the same from FFX-2, I really can't see anything good from this.

Imagine your average ATB, but there's 2-6 times more of them, and you can only control one character and the only real option you can use is Auto-Battle (if you want to be quick and successful). I personally liked it, but it's been months since I was at the 20-hour mark playing it and... I really feel no reason to continue right now.

The focus of the battle system is managing character classes in real time during battle.

Instead of casting cure you switch to a paradigm that has a healer and that character will do the healing. If you need haste you switch to a team that has a synergist, etc, etc.
Basically you choose the roles and let the characters do their jobs. You control one of the characters manually (think Persona 3) but since the pace of the battles is so fast you can choose auto-battle. This simplifies things because you can use several comands per turn (untill you fill all the segments of that blue bar) and selecting several attacks manually every few seconds can be too much. Some times you'll need to do things manually of course, comands like death, libra, summons and many others are never used by the AI.

It's kinda like the gambits in FFXII but without all the micro-management. In XII if you wanted to create a healer you had to create all the appropriate gambits (cast cure on a character with less than 50% hp, use phoenix down on dead character, etc). Here the AI does all the things you expect it to do within each role.

Then there's the fact that each type of attack will consume a different number of bar segments and stagger. If you manage to fill an enemy's stagger bar by chaining lots of attacks appropriately you'll have the enemy at your mercy. Some monsters are virtually invulnerable untill you stagger them, others will probably die before you even stagger them.
Not only can you stagger bosses but unlike most FF games status ailments also work on them.

The end of the teaser trailer, did I see the hand of titan coming down towards you?

The ONLY thing I want out of XIII-2 is the ability to roam all of pulse and fight extraordinarily large Pulse Fal'Cie. That's IT. If they give me that, I'm in. $60 and all.

Fighting the titan would be cool.

Trailer was a gigantic yawn.  I expect FFXIII-2 to go something like this:

DADS ARE TOUGH
I WONT BE BOUND BY DESTINY
I WILL BE THE HERO MY DESTINY MAKES ME
STOP IT YOU CANT DO THAT
WE ARE THE HEROES
