I can guarantee I won't. Mostly because I'm not a big fan of the XIII universe. XIII-2 was better than the 1st one, but still not worth shelling out more money for the low point of Final Fantasy. No thank you :)
(Now playing Dead Island, Vanquish, and PSASBR Beta)
Look at all these "stuck in a box" complaints, and I bet they are coming from people who will bash FPS for being generic. Seriously, I see so many people clamor how dynamic, deep, creative, and rich the experiences you get from JRPGs supposedly is, but the second developers step out of the textbook definition established from the SNES era, people just flip out.
We got a game with an interesting concept that will keep you actively involved and aware of what's going on at all times. We got exploration that actually has involvement and meaning, since 99% of JRPGs just has you pushing your stick in a direction and running through vast environments with zero interaction. We got what already sounds like the deepest customization system in any FF game. We got a battle system that looks incredibly precise and flexible. Instead of churning out a lot of generic commands like the past 2 XIII games, we can actually chain and input commands in a more real time manner that allows for better combat flow and adaptation to the scenario, all while still maintaining a menu/turn based vibe that the genre is known for.
It's going to be fun to play a JRPG where all the elements are active, dynamic, and tie into each other to potentially create a fun and involved experience.
