The truly annoying part is when people say that Lightning is being shoved down our throats even though her total screentime is only a fraction of Cloud and Sephiroth's and all her appearances are always plot-significant, but gratuitous shoehorning of said characters in a game where they have no place is perfectly fine and even encouraged.

For those who were actually hoping that characters like Cloud and Sephiroth were going to make an appearance in the Coliseum:
what if in the event of a FFVII remaster they add FFXIII characters bonus fights in it? Would you like it or would you think that as a shameless attempt to further shove FFXIII down our throats?

Depending on the answer, you're either an innocent fan who just likes crossovers or a shameless fanboy/hater with double standards.

I personally don't like the idea of major FF characters shoehorned in other FF worlds, though I'm fine with established recurring characters like summons and Gilgamesh.

That wasn't very long ago. Remember when we thought we would get more playable characters? Or when we were promised several guest characters in XIII-2?

Good, good times. Then they ruined it.


I don't recall the promised part.


I do. They stated we'd get several guests that would aid Dumb and Dumber.


Link me an article.

It's not the screentime so much as it is that presentation. You'd have to be pretty desensitized to not see something off with self-declaring your own character a national symbol.

That wasn't stated until the LR presentation, though. In XIII-2, the most you can blame Lightning for was her 180 in personality. Even then, it's justified as a result of......gosh, I can't remember. I know mahroflcopter understood why she became so depressed.

Remember when everyone kept swearing blind that SE stated that the ending would be in DLC?

.....well not everyone obviously, but a lot of people.

There's so much truth to your argument my mind is completely blown.Though I wouldn't have mind having a Coliseum with FF Crossover battles.Perhaps like a "Dissidia Tower" lol.It would really be cool to waste time battling Cloud+Squal and avoiding the cheesy story :p

I can't remember any lies from before release. But to be fair, I never cared too much about pre-release statements or how they turned out.
I'm sure there'll be new lies for this game though.

Remember when we were promised the assassination of all haters?

Wait nvm..just me.

Though it would be welcome :D


If "one of us" had written something like but about fanboys and apologists, "you guys" would've freaked out. >.>
Wishing for the death of a large group of people is only considered fun on certain dates, it seems.
