Does anyone else think Square is desperate at this point?

XIII-2 was piss poor and didn't even have a story that really connected to the first game even though they "tried" to connect the plots. And now Lightning Returns is changing basically everything gameplay wise to the point where it may as well be an entirely new game. And again the new story has almost no connection to the last game. Not much. At least with how XIII-2 was received by fans and critics it finally convinced Square to get off their a**es and finish Tyoe-0. Which we still aren't seen outside if Japan.

I think XIII was good but XIII-2 was terrible. Square is well aware of how everyone feels about both games but instead of leaving XIII alone and moving on their still trying to "reinvent" them to appeal to gamers (mostly western audiences) and its just not working.

Go cry a river because I don't care. Threads like these are stale and boring.

No, SE experiments with game concepts all the time. And they'd rather do it with sequels to games rather than in their main titles though, because there is less to lose if they fail. They have been doing this for ages. The main reason parasite eve even exists is because they were using it to test the graphical system that'd be used in FF VIII after all.

Not exactly sure what TC is getting at. When has any of the sequels ever been more than quick cash?

Not sure how that makes them desperate.

I think you might be mistaken because SE has only done a few sequels like FFX-2, FF13-2 and Parasite Eve and a mecha game Front Mission. I don't know all the games SE made since I only focused on FF games BUT I know SE is showing desperation because they re-made (or ported) FF games for current consoles.

I think SE is showing desperation because the recently been focusing on fanboys & fangirls instead of the true FF fans, its true because FF fanboys & fangirls gets crap like more Lightning while true FF fans are screwed out of main FF games like FF vs 13 or a real current FF game.

SE has reeking of desperation for years now. They just can't seem to get their act together.
