sounds sorta similar to lighting in D12 if playing rpg mode.

Not exactly.You would enjoy FFXIII past the 20 hour mark when the combat system develops some options.In the start its very boring and can drag on.The graphics and the music are the best parts of the game in my opinion.

I trust that they wont make the same mistake this time, people are familiar with it now anyway and they can always have a separate tutorial

The story will still suck.

"Why is this guy betraying me?"

"What the-- who the fuck is this last boss? Why am I doing this? WHAT OF DONUTS?!?!?!"

Fuck FFXIII and its datalog.

I hope they try to address some of the complaints and issues the game had, namely being a bit more open for exploration and not taking forever to really get going. If they fail to do that then fuck this direction SE's taking.

I just hope they don't make it into another tech demo.

The official trailer got me even more excited for this. I wonder if we'll at least run into some of the old cast besides. Not that it matter because we have Lightning.

Trailer was pretty good... but I can see the story being stupid though.  I kinda hate having Serrah take the lead, she looks...so weird.  Seems the game forgot about her "better half", Snow, so far haha

Graphics look great (sans Serrah), and I'd like to see more of the old cast too.

It's Square. Are you SERIOUSLY expecting them to put out a good story when they're pretty much proven that they're consistently bad at that? And I don't mean recently I mean since like forever?

Credit where it's due... I think FF6 was okay.

People with hopes for a good story are delusional, it's that simple.
This trailer confirms the ability to recruit monsters, apparently there's only Serah and Noel so your third party member will be a monster. Gotta catch'em all!!!
Otherwise it looks like more of the same so people who didn't like XIII should just stay away.

Off-screen gameplay:

Looks like the cerberus paradigm brings the recruited monster into the fight.

Well, I played FF13 through to the end and just felt unhappy with the game overall due to the sheer amount of fighting (no breaks to explore or go to towns or even do a sidequest for much of the game) and not enjoying the fighting much either. I felt like I was just wanting strings of numbers all the time and bars as opposed to being able to enjoy the fighting. Heck, they could have had a black screen behind the number/bars for all I saw of the battle graphics. So if its more of the same? Meh.

I miss the older FFs.
