Final Fantasy 13

But this time, it's for real...

Watch Video

Don't be a fake out, don't be a fake out...
Edit: Yes!
"Are you implying that certain aspects of this game were designed just to look cool?" LOL'd
At least the 'planes' look like they can fly this time.

Guys isn't Purge pretty much self explanatory? When was the last time purge meant anything good?

Man I wsih the cut scene was longer I wanted to see to you guys make fun of Snow and his Crew NORA. And maybe Hope and Vinille as well

Giant robo-sawblade-scorpions, chocobo chicks living in some guy's hair... Yeah. I have no idea what happened here. But I think most of it was designed just to look cool.

These were some of the questions I had after four bloody hours of that garbage:
What's a Cocoon?
What's a faicie?
What's an icie?
Who's the blond douche in the trenchcoat?
Who's the black guy?
Who are the people in hoods?
What's the Purge?
Why did the Giant thing turn a lake into crystal?
What do the fourteen year old's have to do with anything?
What the fucking hell is going on?

Tell me this is part 1, I liked Final Fantasy XIII, but there were some things that didn't make a lick of sense.

That was great. One of the best ones yet. The blood sugar monitor bit had me laughing pretty good.

Initiating rabid fanboy rage in 3... 2...

I've not played this yet, does it make any more sense in context?

It does look cool though.

Cocoon is the city in the sky, that sits above Gran Pulse.
Falcie are god like entities that watch over the people of Cocoon (Sanctum Falcie) as well as people of Gran Pulse (Pulse Falcie)
L'cie are people chosen to carry out orders that are given by Pulse Falcie... the Pulse and Sanctum are enemies.
Snow
Sazh
People who are on their way to Gran Pulse because they are accused of being L'cie
It is the immigration of people who may have been in contact with L'cie
Because it carried out its focus
They're part of operation NORA led by Snow
It's a crazy game.

Hooray, FFXIII for real real! Bazookas make everything better. And the protagonists may want to take a lesson from Chell.

Wow, y'know I was considering buying this. Now, having seen this, I would be embarassed to have it running on my T.V.

What.Was.That.

Someday I need to get myself a console just to play all this weird shit.

I've played 30 hours of it, very little of those thirty hours were fun.

When I first posted these I was told to read the codex Why should I have to read a glossary during a visual experience?

I, police chief of Cocoon, depitize you, sawmill scorpian robot, to serve the public, stop crime, and portect the innocent. Do you accept the responicibilities I have just given you?

YES SIR!

Take this badge, and welcome to the Cocoon poli- AAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHH!!!!

Oops...

So good graphics, so bad game.

Yeah admittedly I had know idea what was going on, so I had to read a whole bunch... I kind of agree with you, but it's pretty fun to play the game after you know what's going on. I hated the linearity, but loved the battle system.

I haven't either but according to Yahtzee (praise be upon him) the final fantasy series seems to follow a distinct plot line. I.E. same storyline just different setting.

BLAST OFF!

From now on I'm replacing every instance of teh main character's name with "Nell" and the little emo brat will forever be saying "I'll save you".

I love my Canada

I don't know a good early morning purge starts the day off right.

i would like to know who in japan thought that 70 hours of going down linear corridors made a game good

I love Unskippable. I love this game.
Now whenever I watch this cutscene, I'm going to hear the Unskippable jokes over it. I can't tell if that's a good or bad thing.
Let's roll with good.

This has reminded me that I actually need to play FFXIII. I bought it on the day of release, but never got around to playing it.

I'm kinda surprised you stayed away from the whole Chocobo-nesting-in-Fro thing, but glad that you did focus on its size. :D I was so hooked on "Why is there a chick in the mans HAIR" to notice anything else.

Shame they are not making a series out of Final Fantasy

I really tried to like this game... Maby if the tutorial ended about 20h sooner!

Last FF I played through was 10, the scenery has... changed.

Okay so there is one exception but I doubt that is the context used in the game.

I'll save you the trouble it's a confusing, corridor shooter with unlikeable characters that make you wish you could throw them off the walkways.

Who the fuck are these people?
What is going on?
Why should I care?
Can I stop playing now? Please?

Oh shit, wrong Escapist video series! >_<

Man, Graham, man, Paul, that stuff from FF3 (or really FF6) you guys showed three months ago was far easier to understand than what you had to put up with this time. Why DOES the police need a sawblade-handed robo-scorpion?

Hell... even that LoadingReadyRun sketch "A Stitch in Time" from about a month ago made more sense than this cutscene....

Watching that cutscene made me realize that I do not own the game anymore, and I have Final Fantasy IX. Life is good.

Lmao. Loved the saw mill part! Great ep! Pure gold throughout!

Epic riffing going on there.

I got pokemon vibes with the black guy. He throws his afro into the ring shouting, 'Chocobo, I choose you!'
