Final Fantasy Versus XIII won't be at TGS + Other S-E TGS line-up news

I don't even know if I should be annoyed or indifferent about this anymore. Versus XIII was announced in 2006, I was in Highschool when they announced this thing.

This game is going to suffer the "Osborne effect" just like Duke Nukem Forever.

Just pretend it doesn't exist, it's a waste of time thinking about it.

Besides, I don't think it's because they don't have anything to show, they just don't want to take the spotlight away from XIII-2 which will be very close to release by the time TGS rolls around. It makes sense to focus on XIII-2 considering it's the last big event before it hits stores, they will have plently of time to build hype for Versus, it will probably be their main game on all shows in 2012.

Come on, did anyone actually expect it at TGS?  It's pretty clear now that these games weren't even really in development when they were announced.  At least Type-0 is coming soon.

I don't think that term means what you think it means...

Looks like you can throw the moogle to open treasure chests that are out of your reach.

The game has a pretty crappy drop rate so them addressing that is pretty nice.

Agreed.  I'd use easy mode if they made it available.  It's not so much a matter of the game being too hard as it is too time consuming.  Since people who grew up with the series still want to play it, making it more convenient to people with less spare time would be great. 

I can't keep track of time while playing any FF game or any RPG for that matter, but I know some of the boss batters were really long and took forever to stagger even when you had a good strategy.

New trailer:

http://uk.ign.com/videos/2011/08/25/final-fantasy-xiii-2-quest-for-lightning-trailer?objectid=97872

Lots of new footage and one of XIII's characters returns.

So Snow is just a friend now? Are you telling me that after all that shit they broke up?! LMAO!

I guess Serah-chan has either gotten wet for her Nisan or for He-Fang.

Either way, Snow deserved to get friendzoned.

Also why should he be complaining? He's got a motorcycle made out of Lesbian Transformer Twins. Even Vanille's Autobot Vibrator doesn't compare.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

IGN has a new trailer

I am one of the people that fully enjoyed XIII, from start to finish but I'm not sure I'm hyped for XIII-2. I mean, I played the Japanese version and even with my average japanese I was able to understand most of the plot, read the items and abilities with a certain ease but later down the road SquareEnix does what a lot of fans asked from the start, a version with the japanese audio and everything else in english, the asian version.

I think I'm going to wait for that version. The sad thing is that I'll probably have to wait a year for it but at least I'll get what I really want with no regrets.

Oops. My bad.
Well, at least it's a nice trailer. I just wished some of these new trailer showed more some of the new features SE says the game has, like collecting monsters the battles with QTE, etc.
