I was expecting a 3 month gap like with XIII (December-March). Let's hope that every SE game from now on will be localized this fast.

Multi plat. You're probably thinking of Versus which is PS3 only.

I don't see the point of keeping the 360 version a secret but who knows?

If it's a more open game it really might be unfeasible (or at least really annoying) to put it on the 360. Depends I guess if the data for the WORLD is able to fit on a single DVD with plenty of room to spare and they can just divide based on story events.

I recently replayed FFXIII. The story's still shit, the dialogue is jejune, and the characters act like low functioning autistics, but the gameplay at least is now much more tolerable. The main bosses and enemies in the game just require constant staggering and attacking over and over with a few debuffs in between. The marks really made me use the full spectrum of the role system (I ended up turtling the last mark to death to get a five star ranking) and the optional enemies (like Long Gui and Shaolong Gui) are exercises in your knowledge and efficiency in using the paradigm system. There were a lot of missed opportunities. I really wanted to fight Titan, but never got to. It's like a tease or something. Here's this giant ass monster, and you don't get to fight it.

That being said, FFXIII-2 still looks atrocious to me. Noel's design is absurd, and I really want to know how they explain away Serah fighting and Snow not caring. What, is it like:

"Alright wifey, you can go out looking for your missing sister. I'll kick back with a beer, some chips, and fist bump my buddies."
"Why did I marry you again?"
"I looked like Cookie Monster in the ending sequence of the original game. OM NOM NOM!"

Ridiculous.

I'm curious why you felt the story was so shitty? I read your review and honestly I feel like this is one of the strongest stories to come out of the Final Fantasy series. I wholeheartedly like the characters and they feel quite real and honest to me. Sure, they are all very naive, but they are all also really young and carry a level of naivete I would expect of people that age growing up in that kind of environment. I'm not yet finished with the game, so maybe it drops the ball later on, but it seems like they did a really fine job with the most part and I've liked the trajectory the  game has taken.

I'm actually more curious to know why he replayed the game considering he hated the hell out of it, especially considering the time it takes to complete.

In the review he actually said he enjoyed it. He gave it an 81%. He didn't like the story though. I guess I'm just asking more in depth as far as why he felt that way about the story. I mean his opinion is his opinion, but I really do feel it's one of the stronger stories in the Final Fantasy series.

I have a friend who didn't like XIII's story, but when I finally got the reason out of her, it turns out that she just didn't like it being character driven almost to an extreme. And the database system was just annoying, but I agree on that point.
