  • Doing Dragoons like myself justice =^_^=

  • Nanaki

    That gameplay is amazing! I loved the way Lightning was enveloped in that dark wind when fighting the dragon.
    Would someone kindly caste Haste to ensure February arrives even sooner?

  • Impressionnant

    This game could be the greatest game ever made, and people would still call it shit. Sorry, Lightning, but you just can’t win against these people. At least you’ll be fondly remembered in 10 years time, just like FF8 and 9.

    • Nanaki

      It becomes easier once you learn that a person’s opinion doesn’t matter nearly as much as your own. They can enjoy or not enjoy something and that should never sway someone to take that stance, especially if something is arguably good and well worked on.

    • Dark Zerato

      LR:FF is the most promoted game of SE, much more than any previous FF. Haters gonna hate.

    • Chido55

      I like it that you didn’t mention 7. /hides

      Been spending like 150+ hours in XIII, though XIII-2 really goes downhill for me with all those mumble jumble.

      Well Lightning has Returned, and she will give my soul salvation again.

    Dark Knight > Dragoon

  • revenent hell

    Hmm the music appears to have a more upbeat type feel to it, which I think is a good thing.
    I also want to hate myself for liking everything ive seen here…But , ya know, after not liking the first, tolerating the second… Im rather ok with maybe quite liking the third right now

  • harmonyworld

    I said I wouldn’t get this but I might now!

  • chroma816

    I dropped FF13 for the gameplay/battle system, and not the characters and story. LR looks interesting, and it seems like they fixed my main complaints, so I may have to pick up XIII-2 and then this.

    • Lynx

      If you do pick up XIII-2, ignore the overall plot. The individual area plots are fine but the overall plot is bonkers. Good idea, horrible execution.

      • chroma816

        Good idea, horrible execution should be the tagline of the entire FFXIII series

        • Lynx


          Thought it was fine with the the original. In the case of XIII-2, it was like they tried to do too much new stuff that it backfired.

          • chroma816

            I said it in the first post, but the whole reason why I ended up dropping the first game was, in my opinion, the bad execution – the gameplay just wasn’t fun to me, and the battle system sucked. That said, I thought the stories and characters were interesting.

            Good ideas, bad execution

  • i2Chep

    Look at that field you can go into, this changes EVERYTHING. 10/10! *satire*

    • i2Chep

      I liked FFXIII for the record.

  • Kuromadou

    i prefer to see lightning with more proper costume/garbs that emphasize her dignity and strength, and less revealing of course. that’s why i really love to see her as a Dragoon XD

  • Yvonne Tsang

    She looks amazing in that Dragoon outfit. If only she had the Kain helmet too. <3

  • AndyLC

    In every FF title, the Dragoon is the most badass

  • Virevolte

    Dean : You know who use sunglasses at night ? Amateurs.

  • Ric Vazquez

    As much as other long-time FF fans like me to bash the XIII trilogy, I still think it’s an awesome game, this will probably the best one of the three.

  • Bobby Jennings

    So is Dragoon ingame or is it a preorder bonus? That HP healing could come in handy for me..

  • Vash bane

    so we can get more abilities and add them to the garbs?
