So I'm asking you all, who have actually played, if this is true. Do you think the story was pretty empty, or do you think they do a decent job tying up loose ends?
Story has always been the factor that keeps me interested in an rpg, if the story is empty, I usually stop playing at some point, the only thing that keeps me going is if the gameplay is really really good to make up for it... --- Not only am I the Official Male Chansey of the pokemon boards, I am the Official Male Chansey of the pokemon boards!
It's not too bad if you do the main quests in order but the thing is with the freedom/exploration in this game people can do the story out of order if they want so things can end up rather jumbled. --- Official "Vanille" of the Dissidia Duodecim boards "To hate, to hurt, to destroy ...

The story is pretty meh, yes, best I could put it is it's a fanservice game story wise filler with well cheesey moments kinda like a fan fiction but not quite as bad. It is not the strong suit of the title which is open world exploration and a wonderful combat system like Dragon's Dogma and Kingdoms of Amalur. --- The fastest way to ruin a series you like is to get to know the other people playing it.
I think the story itself is quite uninspiring for this episode for all the other characters except Hope, Lightning and the XIII-2 cast. --- Lightning Collection: http://imgur.com/a/ibrsD#0 Tumblr: http://raitningz.tumblr.com/
Really? As a Vanille and Fang I was quite satisfied with the resolution of their story. I was happy with Vanille's importance to the plot, also that she was one of the people Light saw along with Hope and Serah) ^_^ --- Official "Vanille" of the Dissidia Duodecim boards "To hate, to hurt, to destroy ...

FXIII and XIII-2 both had crap stories so I don't see why honestly the story of the 3rd game would break the trilogy.
? XIII was fine, it was just not well told.
Xiii-2 wasn't bad either, it was just more of a seperate title. I think it would have done better, with all the time travel, to actually work into and possibly manipulate events in xiii however. --- Not only am I the Official Male Chansey of the pokemon boards, I am the Official Male Chansey of the pokemon boards!
