I actually like that goofy song. It's what I think stuff from Japan should be, self-mocking and over the top. On the other hand if that's used more than once in the game then it sux

For the parody to exist, there needs to be original work first. Something can only parody itself so many times before it self-combusts into a smoldering heap.

I think the game[play] looks pretty stellar so far.  I'm probably gonna tune out every cutscene... or watch it only to end up curdled up like Steven Hawking and drooling at the mouth.  But gameplay wise, everything looks pretty oh-kei to me.

Final Fantasy XIII-2, much like XIII, is going to be a smouldering pile of shite.

Please Square-Enix, prove me wrong.

That's why I like it. It's so WTF worthy it's amusing.

I just want to play as Lightning in that badass Bahamut Chaos or whatever fight.

This is apparently the chocobo theme if you can believe that...

EDIT: Scratch that, this is, most likely: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFhy6n4R4I4

At least I hope it is, that other song's just awful IMHO. Totally kills my ears.

Holy jesus, both songs are horrible.

The rest of the OST so far has been pretty nice, I did a youtube tour of it.
I can't say I care for the vocal tracks, but even the good ones from The World Ends With You didn't sit well with me.

That metal chocobo song sucks balls, but I kinda dig the groovy one.
I also love this Last Story music. You may not like that kind of music for normal listening, Yoda, but it will work perfectly for a title or ending theme. Or even some emotional moment in the story. It's very pretty.

The metal chocobo song seems more like something found in a parody than what should be found in the actual game.

My problem with the groovy one is that it's too high-pitched and chaotic. It's sounds like something Prokofiev would create if he downed a case of 5-hour energy shots.

A couple of the other songs I checked out seemed pretty good though.

I was kind of hoping that their solution to FFXIIIs lack of player interaction in battles would be giving the player more control (over all the characters), instead they opted for QTEs... What happened to the Square from the PSO era, the guys that made games like Chrono Cross, Xenogears and FFVII - IX (yes, VIII wasn't exactly stellar at the time, but it was a masterpiece compared to the stuff they make now). I could smell something was wrong when FFX came out, it was a decent game but there ware already signs of things going off the rails. The ironic thing is that going OFF the rails actually meant putting the game ON rails. It already had some of the symptoms that ended up plaguing XIII but at the very least X had a decent battle system.

I doubt it's self-mocking.  I'm sure some people from SE listened to it and thought that people are going to eat that shit up.  It's so bad it's funny.


God this game gets worst and worst. Its amazing how brand name and a budget can keep such a shitty company afloat for so long.

Just finished watching some live-streams and the game is looking really good. The environments are more like your typical FF game rather then super corridors of FFXIII. All the new additions to the battle system work well so far while still retaining FFXIII's core aspects. The most interesting in particular being Blood Damage makes the game more challenging without having needing "Party Leader Death" that quite a few RPGs use nowadays and Syncho Drive/Feral Links are your basic old-school limit-breaks which is always welcome. The Monster System seems solid too with lots of variety in terms of stats and abilities, looks like it can get pretty addicting. I would like to see more usage of the Paradigm-Tune though.

OST is pretty fantastic overall too and really works well in the game. Outside the character designs which may, or may not appeal to everyone I don't really see what to hate here.
