Lightning Visits The Dead Dunes In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

By Spencer . July 8, 2013 . 12:18am

Square Enix demoed the Dead Dunes, one of the fields in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII during Japan Expo. One attendee kindly recorded the gameplay footage all of it is brand new. Back at E3, Siliconera played through an area where Snow was an enemy, but we didn’t get to see the Dead Dunes.

 

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII comes out in February 2014 in North America and November 2013 in Japan.

    As for the gameplay and graphics, honestly it looks like I’m looking at a PS2 game.

    • Suicunesol

      That would be pretty damn amazing-looking PS2 game. >_>

      It doesn’t look much better than XIII-original in terms of graphics–perhaps because we’re seeing an empty desert.

      The customization was unexpected, though. I like what I’m seeing in regards to that.

      • badmoogle

        I think it looks way worse than XIII did which actually looked great (on PS3 at least).I guess their old engine wasn’t capable of anything more than corridor games.

        • eilegz

          or mostly its all the xbox360 version, which got the whole game downgraded and affected the quality of ps3 game

          XIII should never went multiplatform

  • AndyLC

    Fal’Cie May Cry

    • James Williams

      I honestly don’t get this comparison.

      • Ferrick

        i think he’s saying that because of the gameplay ?

        • OathkeeperSoraXIII

          I’m not seeing the comparison either. I see more people comparing FFXV to DMC than LR:FFXIII. In fact, this is the first comparison I’ve seen of the two

          • James Williams

            Iv’e seen this DMC comparison quite a few times now and i have no idea what for, the only thing i could think of is that one guy in the video in red.

          • Anko Is Furious

            Reminds me of some of the failed game comparisons most people would bring up with Resident Evil. Like one of the most recent ones due to RE6 which has been compared to “CoD” which has 0% of things in common.

          • Mozendo

            Aside from you know…selling out.

          • Anko Is Furious

            So apparently when a game or company is a “sell out” they can get compared to “CoD”…?? No offense but your logic is just plain ridiculous.

          • Mozendo

            Because making generic shooting games isn’t selling out.

          • Anko Is Furious

            Comparing a First Person Shooter that revolves on nothing but military wars to a game in the category of Survival Horror only thing that was different was they added action into RE6. Not saying change is always good but it sure as hell was something needed and expected from Capcom’s RE titles which I respect them for. To compare a game to another it would have to be sort of the same an example could be Tomb Raider and Uncharted how they played online (Keyword online) felt the same but fun either way (Found Tomb Raider to be more fun imo). Anyway.. I’ve never exactly said they weren’t a sell out so still doesn’t prove your point sorry.

          • Mozendo

            Except I didn’t compare the gameplay, I said the two sold out. The two are very different.

            Call of Duty is the prime example of a game selling out. What was known as a historic WW2 FPS franchise is now a yearly action game that focuses on action with little very improvements or additions between the yearly releases

            Resident Evil changed it’s genre in with addition of Resident Evil 4. I never played Resident Evil 4 so I can’t comment on it. However I have played 5 & 6 the notable sellouts. As well all know the early Resident Evil games are key games in the Horror Survival franchise, but 5 & 6 forgot about it’s roots. The games are just generic third-person shooters. All you do is move from corridor to corridor to go to the next mission. There is no sense of horror in gameplay because that’s been replaced with fast-paced action, and another key element found in the horror survival genre was gone too. You were never in fear of running out of ammo and being defenseless because the game made gave you ammo every 2-3 minutes, not only that but even if you did run out of ammo you can kill enemies via melee attacks.

            A game once known for establishing the survival-horror genre is know an an fast-paced TPS. It’s safe to say they sold out.

          • Anko Is Furious

            You say you didn’t compare but that much is obvious seeing as all you keep talking about being a sell out. Answer this though if that wasn’t the a case why would you even reply saying -> “Aside from you know…selling out” to my comment talking about people comparing “CoD” to Resident Evil games?? I can’t help but think you’re lost on what’s going on lol.. Whether being a “Sell out” or not that doesn’t give a valid reason to be compared to “CoD” because if that’s the a case why don’t we compare everything we consider a “sell out” to everything. Last time I checked “CoD” isn’t the only “sell out” so for that to be brought up in a Resident Evil discussion is obviously saying something… Don’t you think? Not to mention this DmC & Final Fantasy Lightning Returns is basically the same situation except we don’t know the reason of that comparison lol.

          • Mozendo

            I was comparing on the fact that they’re sellouts. Honestly, is English your first language? I made it clear several times that I was not comparing the gameplay at all.

            “Whether being a “Sell out” or not that doesn’t give a valid reason to be
            compared to “CoD” because if that’s the a case why don’t we compare
            everything we consider a “sell out” to everything.”

            I just gave you the answer in my previous post.

            “Last time I checked “CoD” isn’t the only “sell out” so for that to be
            brought up in a Resident Evil discussion is obviously saying
            something… Don’t you think?”

            You’re right, it’s not the only sellout, but by far it’s the most popular one so that’s why they use it.

            If you’re going to reply improve your English and reading skills because I’ve made my points obvious.

          • Anko Is Furious

            No English isn’t my first language actually since I’m Hispanic but either way I understand it perfectly. That aside so far you’ve made nothing clear actually so being an ignorant child isn’t helping your case. I’ll make it simple for someone with your mentality can understand.

            Being a “sell out” isn’t a reason or something that could be considered being used to compare in anything but if that is how you’d like to see it as then I guess I could use a music artists like “Lil’ Wayne” and compare him to “CoD” then use being a “sell out” as an excuse. Sounds ridiculous but using that as an excuse or a result to compare two games of different genre is basically similar to comparing music like rap to rock, rock to heavy metal or whichever you’d like to compare that aren’t the same with only a mere “Because their a sellout?” as an excuse.

          • Solomon_Kano

            If you’re going to reply improve your English and reading skills

            If you all are going to continue this discussion further, or if you’re to participate in any future discussions at all, I’ll have to ask that you refrain from statements such as these.

            Siliconera caters to an international gaming audience and we do indeed have many members whose first language is not English. If you feel you’ve made your point clear, then you’re welcome to say as much, but do so without the offensive bits. Thanks.

          • Ferrick

            i was just assuming that he did so because of the gameplay, but honestly, its kinda a dumb comparison

        • Pfantzypantz

          Pretty sure it’s because of the guy that looks like Dante, white hair and red clothes.

          • Anko Is Furious

            Well that is odd o.O.. I don’t see the resemblance in Dante & Adonis who has a headband, extremely tight outfit, shorts that reach up to above his knee with some sort of knee pads, a pretty big nose, weird boots and a mini ponytail hairstyle.. Unless there is a Devil May Cry game that I’m unaware about that would fit as a resemblance x.X?…

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          It’s like if people compare everything with Devil May Cry. Dirge of Cerberus was a game focused on shooting yet even several gaming sites called it Vincent May Cry. Metal Gear Rising was also compared with Devil May Cry but at least it was similar and shared one or two designers.

    • AlexanderPappas

      Devil may cry 3 also has better gameplay. The character model of lightning in lightning returns is pretty close in quality to dmc3 though. (lol)

  • AndyLC

    Well shoot, I wished FFXIV played like this.

    It’s a nice middle ground of action based and RPG thoughtfulness

    • Ferrick

      but FFXIV isn’t meant to be made into an MMOARPG though, and i don’t think it would be best for everyone if FFXIV became like RaiderZ, or tera, or anything like those two in the MMOARPG genre, because it’d be too easy

    • Ferrick

  • Asap Nina

    Let hope we this amount of costumiztion in ff xv

  • Subaru

    It seems that the framerate is way better than in previous trailers. Nice! Although it still can’t catch up with FFXIII, given the time for developing the game.

  • Go2hell66

    that costume she’s wearing looks awesome, that should be her default

  • Virevolte

    I tried the demo at japan Expo. It was a happy surprise. The battle system is way better than what it seems in those videos.

    Even so, I felt a little cornered while exploring the environment.

    • ChatKnight

      I really do hope its better than it looks. I don’t want to be Debbie Downer, but this whole thing just looks hideously boring …

  • NightzeroAX

    Apparently some people never heard of Alpha, Beta or even WIP.

  • badmoogle

    Oh wow my comment was deleted because i thought the graphics of this game looked bad…

    Congrats Siliconera,this is a new low for this site which seems more and more different than the site i joined 7 years ago.

    • Dynami

      Uhh… you mean “I think it looks way worse than XIII did which actually looked great (on PS3 at least).I guess their old engine wasn’t capable of anything more than corridor games.”?

      Cuz that’s still there.

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      What, you mean that baiting one-liner along the lines of what you’ve already said earlier on this thread (which is still there), but with less thought and more snark? I deleted it before it turned into a long back-and-forth of jabs, sarcasm and ridicule (since it was starting to attract such comments).

      • badmoogle

        All i said was that the graphics of this game look embarrassing for SE’s standards.

        What exactly is a “flame baiting one liner” in my post?That the game has indeed worse texture work than anything SE has produced on consoles this gen?Or that the NPC models look more inferior than any SE console game this gen?

        I thought this game’s flaws were pretty obvious to anyone who isn’t a blind fanboy or a site that isn’t kissing SE’s ass and hoped that if fans who actually care of the series ring the alarm bells SE might wake up and bring quality graphics back in their games again (although i admit XV already looks miles better than LR).I don’t know if you have noticed but in terms of graphics the game is being trashed all over the intenet right now and rightly so if you compare it with any other Square game that came out this gen.

        Recent happenings showed us that fans have the strength to make companies “wake up” even huge ones like MS.

        However if Siliconera wants to continue with being just a PR outlet for publishers with a Nazi policy to suppress any negative concerns you can just ban me now because i don’t want to have anything to do with a site like this.

        • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

          See? Was that so hard to elaborate on what you really meant, at the very least?

          Demanding a set of features that directly benefit consumers and demanding graphics that are bells and whistles at most are at two quite different levels of demand. I don’t know if this level of graphics is the final product or not; maybe it is, or maybe it isn’t, since the game comes out only within the last quarter of the year – but either way, graphics aren’t the only factor that make up the game.

          Lastly: Throwing around names instead of talking doesn’t help make conversations.

          • badmoogle

            “Demanding a set of features that directly benefit consumers and demanding graphics that are bells and whistles at most are at two quite different levels of demand.”

            Games are a visual medium.They are neither prose or poetry.What you are calling “bells and whistles” actually help players to feel more immersed in a game’s world.And as much as i personally always champion art direction over the technical side of graphics there are simply limits to what is acceptable and what isn’t. I (and almost everyone i know) think this game looks attrocious for SE’s standards.Maybe i place SE on a much higher pedestal than they deserve but since i’m following them ever since 1997 this was the first time i was disappointed so much by the graphics of a FF game.

            And no i don’t think it’s “too early” to judge them properly because the game is going out in just a few months.

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            Games are a visual medium.

            That’s quite debatable; writings and drawings are also visual medium, in the same manner that you need vision to experience them, but each of their essences clearly come from different crafts. I don’t disagree that relying on visual appeal is a convention in the videogame industry, but labeling the medium as merely “visual” would be ignoring other strengths it can have (music, narrative, rulesets, etc.).

            If the argument is to be made that this game “should” have better graphics, it would be from prior expectations or tendencies set by Square Enix, not because games are a supposed “visual” medium.

            What you are calling “bells and whistles” actually help players to feel more immersed in a game’s world.

            That certainly didn’t stop XIII from getting the amount of backlash it did… And a lot of the criticism revolved around the narrative and the mechanics, but not quite often the graphics.

            […] there are simply limits to what is acceptable and what isn’t.

            Even ignoring for a moment that this is a subjective measure, it still revolves around audience expectations (which is another subjective measure on its own). Perhaps it’s safer to chalk it up to preferences, instead of a solid measure of some sort.

          • badmoogle

            I never said (or implied) that video games are “merely visual”.That would be an assumption of someone who has never played games in his life (and even then i don’t think there would be anyone who would say that) but i stand on my opinion that games are primarily a visual medium (among other things if you prefer the wording more).

            And yes when you take into account the legacy of SE’s in the graphics department then the game “should” have better graphics than what they have showed in every trailer of LR so far.

            “That certainly didn’t stop XIII from getting the amount of backlash it did… And a lot of the criticism revolved around the narrative and the mechanics, but not quite often the graphics.”

            I never mentioned gameplay so i have no idea why you are trying to make this comparison.Gameplay is always king IMO and i like that they opened it up in comparison with the two previous games.However my comment was about the graphics.

            “Even ignoring for a moment that this is a subjective measure, it still revolves around audience expectations (which is another subjective measure on its own). Perhaps it’s safer to chalk it up to preferences, instead of a solid measure of some sort.”

            Well no, graphics as bad as these are not a “subjective measure”.They are bad.Period.it’s just that this is also a FF game by a company with SE’s history that makes them look even worse.

            Except of course if someone has a bizarre preference for PS2 textures instead of hi-res ones.Then this discussion is pretty much pointless.

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            The reason I brought up other factors is because what would carry the game is more than just the graphics, and the first game alone had more than proven that already. If you’re already considering other factors in mind, very well, I can drop that topic without problems.

        • NewestType

          I think XV is on ps4…

          • badmoogle

            It looked much better than LR even before it became XV.

          • NewestType

            It is on a different engine with a different dev team. The only thing I dislike in LR so far is the “sliding” animation as it looks too static.

        • http://www.ihasnowebsitez.com Satonaka CP-Four

          “Recent happenings showed us that fans have the strength to make companies “wake up” even huge ones like MS.”

          I’m surprised so many people fell for this, but to me this was nothing more than a huge M$ conspiracy to get people to “think” that a multi-million dollar corporation actually listened to their “fans/consumers/whatever-the-hell” they call us these days in their fancy board meetings.

          There never was going to be any DRM, any disc lock, any lack of used sales and “owning your own games gone for good” policies, etc.

          All of that was an elaborate scheme to again, make us think that they cared and make us think that we actually were responsible for the “X-BOX 180″, and in the end everyone ended up thinking “they won the fight” and that we somehow managed to convince M$ that we didn’t like it.

          Sure Sony ain’t any better and there’s still the issue of “publisher controlled locks” on BOTH consoles, but at least Sony is the lesser evil of the two, but alas, in regards to to the XB1′s “marketing campaign” it’s a shame to see that so many people fell for it. They sure got you all good.

          We “won?”… won what? :/

    • eilegz

      well the graphics on XIII was great, then XIII-2 the quality got decreased, dont know about this one but dont see that bad.

      we should all blame the multiplatform and how the xbox360 version affected the whole quality of the game…. graphics on XIII in ps3 was better but then in XIII-2 its just equal on both platforms….

      • badmoogle

        I agree that the graphics for XIII were great (at least on PS3) and i agree that they were downgraded a bit in XIII-2.LR though looks much worse than XIII-2…I don’t know if the 360 is the reason for that but i remember a time when Squaresoft switched to playstation only because CDs were the most capable format at the time in order to push their games to the next level.

        Usually when a new game comes out you expect the graphics at least to be better than the previous game in the series.This gen however we’ve seen a couple of examples where the opposite thing happened (RE6 being the other recent example of a game that had worse graphics than the previous game).

        • eilegz

          about re6 while the graphics its a little bit worse, i felt that the art and the variety its a lot more compared to the grey brown, yellow graphics of RE5.

          Other than graphics re6 its better than re5 in every other single aspects….

          I think that XIII-2 its better than XIII in the way that fixed the lienality…. but other than that XIII-2 its worse…

          The playable character have been downgraded too :/

      • NewestType

        Seriously I am not seeing why such harsh criticism is used with the graphics. I don’t know if it to compare it to the first entry or just to have leverage to debase the game. But the graphics seem pretty well. Lightning’s model looks a bit better to me.

      • http://www.ihasnowebsitez.com Satonaka CP-Four

        Nah if the graphics are getting “worse” as people are claiming them to be then SE is finally taking a step in the right direction:

        They are finally caring more about how the game plays and how fun it’s going to be with a great story, than making it look super-awesome as they have been for quite a while now, a trend that has gotten them on the map before but now they’re realizing looks aren’t all that make the game and that the ‘look’ just isn’t good enough anymore.

        If this is the mindset SE is having i may just pick this game up on day one instead of waiting to buy parts 1 and 2 of this mediocre saga for “13″ and “11″ dollars (because XIII-2 = 11 am I rite?) used for parts 1 and 2 respectively, because at least now they’re going back (slightly) to remembering what made their games good in the first place

  • Anko Is Furious

    Is this David Lodge I hear playing as Adonis O.O..?? Anyway if the game really looks like this and isn’t because of video quality I hope the game is pretty long or is open world even if you’ve completed the game. Still considering buying it but pre-ordering a PS4, GTA V for PS3 & saving for a release date on FF15 & KH3 might make me not purchase this game >.<…

    I wish they would have kept the cast or gave her a new crew. Since it seems they added FF10-2 Dress Sphere system with Role Shift system. Would have been interesting to see all the different costumes.

  • Randgriz

    Its obvious that the release date is a strategic one for SE Company.. probably attempting to start thier earnings in the new financial year.

  • JMaster3000

    Its funny to see the European icon on the article but nothing about Europe in it xD

    • Letiumtide

      It’s because this happened at the Japan Expo and, well, if you listened, they are speaking French sometimes.

      Because the release date isn’t what makes this a Europe article.

  • enorka miho

    I just want to play this game and I want this series to end at the same time.. LOL.. All I can say is as much I love this game.. There is part of me that thinks that things could have been so so much better should there be someone who knows how to write properly..

    Speaking of which… just something random.. Well, I got a feeling FFXIII is going to be like this since the first day I lay my eyes on the cast 6 years ago… I knew this would happen because I myself am not as interested as I used to be with the series.. I actually rolled my eyes when I was first introduced.. Reason is because its a gut instinct accumulated from years of gaming.. After playing it.. To be honest, it really test the fans’ endurance on how far will they journey with the series.. And I choose to still believe.. I like all the cast now.. I really do.. Just not as much.. :(

    On the other hand.. I am happy that I get to customize more stuff…More freedom and I can atleast move Lightning whenever I want to block attacks.. Graphics.. I cant say I am not disappointed ..Not sure if this is the final product or not.. Still, its SE.. I love them for who they are regardless.. As long as they do not rip too many things out from me and they improve, then I am fine.. No one is perfect and SE did take risk.. In some way…

    • NewestType

      I agree that the series should come to it’s end. Personally, I feel that XIII will never display the full potential the team intended for it. But the gameplay of LR seems to be the most engaging thus far.

      • Ferrick

        sure do hope that this will be the last XIII though, because it’s been running wayyy too long with the story being dragged on to nothing

        • NewestType

          I usually take the story in 3 parts. XIII is the physical realm. XIII-2 Is the spiritual side. LR:XIII seems to bring both together for the conclusion. XIII-2 Kind of gives you an insight into the backstory involving Etro. It doesn’t go deeper to involve Mwynn. Which may be critical for some to understand the relationship of Bhunivelze who seems to be the focus of LR.

  • saxophone15

    I see some people saying the graphics look bad, but keep in mind that all of these next gen games being shown for PS4 and Xbox One probably make this look worse than it actually is.

    Also, keep in mind that the in-game cutscenes in the original XIII were “enhanced” to look better than the regular gameplay.

  • Göran Isacson

    An obvious beta, but suitable enough. I can see where the DMC-comparison comes from now, what with all the style changes going on. Don’t seem to be that many differences from older games though, barring that stat boost seem to come by finishing side-quests, not fueling the Crystarium with points.

  • Aoshi00

    Nice gameplay demo.. not sure why some are so hung up on the graphics, looks pretty good to me except maybe a bit empty in the desert. I didn’t expect this to be the Last of Us.. Looking forward to Drakengard 3 and Lightning Returns.. I really would prefer more solid gameplay and story instead of only focusing on graphics, why I prefer 13-2.. can’t wait to use the Cloud costume DLC :)

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    how long have you been here? Sometimes they are really quick about news sometimes they are not. Most English speaking sites are usually behind everywhere else in terms of news anyway.
    Siliconera has some pretty special interviews, sales insight, etc. that other sites don’t have.
    At GDC when MGSV was all the hype, these guys went and saw Rune Factory’s producer talk about his philosophies. I was more interested in that compared to MGSV and it was a great read. I was quite happy that Siliconera decided to cover that (as well as MGSV).
    Those mods weren’t recently appointed either… I’ve been here for a while and I know those users and when they became mods.
    The rules were made so that the comments section can become a place of discussion and not pointless “I’m right and you’re wrong” arguments. I don’t think you have been here for any of the DmC Devil May Cry, Tales and Atelier Ayesha articles. These rules only happen because of what we the commenters have been writing, posting, commenting, etc.

    And you think that happens just magically? No. That kind of atmosphere needs maintenance.

  • NewestType

    At the very least, for your sake, It would be better to explain why you dislike it. You are not only communicating to others but might also show others what you are noticing and they may end up agreeing. Generally, communicating more can only promote understanding of your point and why you feel that way.

  • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

    You just keeps spinning things into that “fanboy” angle, don’t you; not to mention generalizing a whole lot. It’s not about explaining to any specific person; it’s about encouraging comments that can lead to more productive talks and avoiding the kind of comments that could turn into just another pointless fight thread. There are many users on the site who are more than willing to talk things out instead of instantly pulling out the “opinions” defense or turning to insults upon being questioned (not by mods, but by other users), and that’s the kind of situations we want; if you don’t like explaining yourself, you can’t blame others if they got the wrong expression.

    You’ve made your disapproval plenty clear yesterday, so I’m not going to talk further on this. Feel free to agree or disagree, but it’s our task to stick to it.

    Well that’s why I asked about how long you’ve been here. DmC articles used to have comments enabled.
    I think there’s been a misunderstanding here. Siliconera doesn’t discourage any kind of dialogue. When people comment, there are times where they are just crying for attention or trying to make a pointless conversation. That’s the stuff Siliconera and (I hope) everyone wants to avoid. The comments can state opinions, but don’t start making arguments for the sake of arguing.
    Maybe the mods might not like me on this site, but they’ve respected me and I have (at least I think) respected them as well. They have a task of overlooking this place and they are taking their own free time to do so. If you don’t bother them or anyone else, you are fine. These rules aren’t that strict to be honest.

    August…September…October…November. Yup that’s definitely 2 months :P

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    Well, not really…FFXIV is still in Beta testing and that releases next month. They will still be fine tuning the game for another couple months I reckon

  • NightzeroAX

    you know what you’re right I forgot the graphics had to be toned down because of it being released on the 360 as well.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Wait, if you were banned, how did you get unbanned?
    You mean you’re comment got deleted? When you commented about Other M in a negative light, did you make sure to have a reasonable explanation? Or was it just a simple statement?
    It’s not the topic of the comment that got those other people banned. It’s how they worded it… I could say:
    Capcom sucks because they haven’t made any good games
    That doesn’t really say much compared to:
    Capcom seems to be rushing out their games nowadays and the quality of the games have suffered due to their hastiness. They should take the time and budget accordingly while making AAA games to profit from them well.
    You just need to think before you say something. Like when you’re talking to a real person. Or else you could say the wrong thing or make a misunderstanding/mistake.

    A console RPG does not have the same development process as an MMO, and they’re especially not comparable given XIV’s odd, troubled development history. What you’re seeing here is pretty indicative of what the final product is going to look like.

    That doesn’t mean that I’m OBLIGATED to explain myself.

    Yes, you are. Maybe you aren’t on other places on the Internet, but on Siliconera, you are absolutely obligated to explain your opinions. If you can’t understand that, I suggest you leave the site.

    You’ve been back for less than a day and all you’ve done for the most part is cause drama and try to draw attention to yourself. The mod team is currently reviewing what to do with you.

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    That’s why I said ‘fine-tuning’ as in they’ll be tweaking the little things in the game still for a couple of months

  • badmoogle

    “but on Siliconera, you are absolutely obligated to explain your opinions. ”

    If you’re going down that path you should enforce the same rule for positive opinions as well.I’ve never seen you asking someone to explain why he/she is cheering for a particular game.
    Otherwise this policy is hypocritical and gives substance to what some people say that Siliconera is just a PR outlet for publishers disguised as a fan site.

    I think you’re the only person in the world I’ve met who’s ever made it sound like it’s bad to be happy about something or say nice things about someone.

    You should really re-evaluate your outlook on life. :P

  • badmoogle

    Being happy or disappointed are both parts of life and someone should be free to express both sides of the same coin without having to analyze everytime why he/she is happy or disappointed about something.

    My outlook in life is pretty balanced and thank God since i’m leaving in a free country i’m never afraid to voice my opinion negative or positive about something. ;)
