It's probably been discussed but does anything carry over from a 13-1 save?

Adding on to the list of unimportantness: I was just preordering Amalur, ME3 collectors at bestbuy and almost made a FF13-2 impulse grab. Thankfully they're out of stock on the PS3 CE edition.

This is a good game for me to get when it's $15, see you later thread until then!

I'm thinking that I'm gonna hold off too.... This will be the first FF I haven't bought on the day of release since 7.....

F- for tense inconsistency.

Still more than what I expect out of FFXIII-2s script. =P
XIII-2 has surprisingly natural dialogue and some pretty good characterization overall; it's just hampered by a wildly incoherent plot.

With an awesome ending, IMO.
I thought there were multiple (non canonical) endings?
There are, but most people bitch about the canonical one because it isn't what they wanted.

It was also confirmed that Lt. Amodar (Capt. Cryptic in XIII-2) joins Lightning midway through her Colosseum fight in the DLC, so we can assume he might also be recruitable.

How easy is it to get the other endings? Easily reached by key save points, or are we talking CT-esque 'play the whole game  over' madness?

Pretty easy. Most of them involve using a certain fragment in certain eras to unlock new cutscenes/nodes, since a few of the nodes you see on the Historia Crux are the paradox endings.

You'll need to get some of the paradox endings anyway, as they give you Fragments.

Actually, this sort of thing is handled really well by FFXIII-2.  Once you've gotten to a certain point with a particular node, you can turn back time and replay the node.  So you want to make another choice or do another thing?  Just play that node over.  I only kept one save with XIII-2, which is something I never do, because I didn't need another.

From what I hear you wouldn't have been allowed another anyway.

Not true; you can branch off your saves when you're in the Historia Crux, just not when you are in a node.

Good timing on the release of this game... I need a short break from Star Wars: The Old Republic... and by break, I mean maybe I'll cut out two hours a night for a palette cleansing PS3 JRPG.

Strange how that is seriously my reasoning, considering I have no personal interest in Serah and Noel's happenings.  I really just want a change of pace, and anything with high production value and different mechanics sounds good to me.
