Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII sounds like the best game coming this year

#1Retroxgamer0Posted 4/5/2013 10:37:20 AM
if Tomb Raider didn't already "Win" this game will..lets look at the facts:

-lightning is the only character
-you transverse towns and places using stealth, jumping, etc in a robe..kind of looks assassins creed-like. think assassin's creed, at least thats what i am thinking
-combat is action rpg where you can move around in combat in real time, but your attacks all have separate atb gauges and you can swap styles midcombat to make combos
-you block and dodge in real time, making it more interesting than boring hack and slashes like kingdom hearts
-the story is a grand finale for ff13, meaning itll be focused on an epic story, and im sure it wont be linear as you are trasversing towns and have a large world map to explore, as hinted by the fact that you can ride monorails and chocobos to get around more quickly
-the 13 days aspect makes it so npcs move around, hinting that theres sidequests you can only do at certain times similar to majoras mask..


omg this sounds amazing its like ezio had three way sex with deku link and lightning

open ended non linear epic story action packed and challenging and made by an A+ studio, sounds like the recipe for the best game of the year.

To me it looks and sounds like Majoras Mask staring Lightning so I'm optimistic although I'll wait and see what happens closer to release date.

I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

that sounds good to me, imo majoras mask is the best game ever made by nintendo

Seems interesting enough enough, although I'm optimistic too.

I actually haven't been keeping tabs on it since it's announcement, however I did catch a small article preview on it.

I can already name two games I'm interested in that probably top it--Bioshock Infinite and Sen no Kiseki. Both involve tight storytelling that the XIII saga is not known for to this point.

Games people hated on here on Gamefaqs are getting a lot of releases for the PS3, Vita and WiiU it seems. I wonder if it's the same people that hated on them trying to hype them now.

It's like some reverse Back to the Future of Gaming. This could be a topic from years ago. Ha ha ha ha!
