I know not very many are interested in this game, but.  I came across a random hands-on Demo video from E3.  The game does show heavy similarities to that of Kingdom Hearts.  It is an interesting design to say the least.  The Demo takes place during a mission/quest in which Lightning is tracking down, Snow.  Which means, Square hasn't shown off the depth of the landscape in which the player will be able to free roam in the full release.  Anyway, here's the video.

More gameplay of Lightning Returns that I randomly came across while watching videos on the internet.  This is from TGS in which it shows Lightning accepting a quest as well as showing off a bit of the free-roam in the game.  As well as some of the customization features the player will be able to utilize in-game.  (Warning: There is commentary, but none of it is in English and it's extremely obnoxious.)

This was a pretty good show of gameplay, although I would like to see more. Like one thing that excites me is the Daily Colosseum fights. I'm not sure if they're daily, or a do at any time thing. But, that's something I would like to see in a video, or at least a bit more show of the free roam.

 As a matter of fact, those type of costumes should grant little to no benefit for the shits and giggles.

I still need to pre-order this because I really want Cloud's Costume and Zack's Buster Sword. That's right, I called it "Zack's Buster Sword." >.>

I'm know I'm the only one on here that pays attention to this game, because it excites me. I cam across this article where Motomu Toriyama and Yui Umeda talked to Fumitsu. In the interview they talk about how, Lightning Returns is meant to 'beat Skyrim.' Will it beat, Skyrim? Most likely not, that game is way hyped up compared to this game. Anyway, this excited me even more because this gives me an idea of how much work they're really putting into this game. For the idea that I have, I'm sure I won't disappointed by the end product and that excites me even more. Let me say this, "shut up and take my money, Square-Enix!"

The battle system explained.  I love the idea of it, I hope Square can execute!


  • The keyword of battle is “Judge and Respond”. Players are encouraged to judge the situation and decide by themselves how to respond.
  • Before the battle system was made for groups. This time around only the core of it has been preserved, in order to let Lightning fight alone.
  • The aim of the new system is to let battles happen quickly and smoothly. Actions happen as soon as the button is pressed.
  • Combat will be much more reliant on timing, in order to stagger the enemy or to counter his attacks.
  • Pressing the guard button puts Lightning in guard stance and she will block all attacks, but the ATB gauge will deplete gradually.
  • It’s possible to attack continuously by keeping the attack button pressed. However pushing it with the right timing will deal more damage. This will be displayed visually.
  • There will be a system that allows players to post their battle score on social networks like Facebook or Twitter.
  • Some monsters will drop certain items only when one of their limbs is cut or destroyed.
  • It’ll be possible to buy scans of the monsters from the informant in towns. That way it’ll be possible to prepare carefully beforehand for the enemies Lightning will have to face. Some scans will require completing a specific quest and some information may not be provided, leaving room for some guesswork.
  • There are less monsters than in the previous titles, but about half of them are completely new.
  • Behavior of certain monsters will change depending on th day/night cycles.
  • There are “Time signal monsters” that come out when it’s almost 6:00 in the morning.They’re an indication that it’s time to wrap up what we’re doing and go back, because at that time Lightning will be forcibly returned to her base (the Ark).
  • The strength of monsters depends on the number of days passed from the start of the game. For instance for the first four days their strength remains the same, but on the fifth it will increase. Stronger monsters also drop better loot, so killing monsters later in the adventure might be beneficial.
  • The strength of Lightning depends on how many quests she completes. Her stats increase by completing quests, and there are some quests that don’t require battle at all. So if an enemy is too strong, it’s possible to go back to town and clear quests to become stronger. Buying a better weapon and shield will also help dramatically.
  • Returning to the Ark fully restores Lightning’s HP and Glory Points (necessary to heal).
  • Using Glory points wisely is important, as HP won’t be restored between battles. Players will have to decide when to use them or when to carry on without healing. Conserving them may be important for boss battles.

Eradia


Eradia (EP) has two functions. Firstly it allows you to use EP abilities such as healing magic and special effect magic that can do things like alter the flow of time. Secondly, EP can also be used to extend the time remaining before Zero Hour and the dawn of the Apocalypse.




How to Obtain Eradia

The main way to acquire Eradia is by completing quests and saving people's souls. It is also possible to obtain it by defeating enemies.

Sazh makes his return with a scene that you can giggle at while watching.  Also, there's new screenshots and a new trailer.

I love the fanfare in this game, come.  Let's discuss, do you think Square-Enix is doing good with their recent games they either released or are making now?  I think they're doing great as opposed to a couple of years ago.

Not sure yet. All these costumes from previous FF characters. I want them to do more of these in the future if they could. I want me a Zidane costume.

I would like to see costumes from other characters as well, but these are good start for fans of the series.  I've been reading and this game has a fairly good following.  I would like to see more, like demo that shows off every aspect the game has to offer without spoiling anything.

Edit: More fanfare :o

The opening intro.  Emotion doesn't run high with, Lightning in this cut-scene.  But, according to the creator that's the way it's meant to be at the start and character's emotions and motivations will roll out through the progression of the storyline.

The color reminds me of Caius or Kain.

But that train cart in the background got me hyped.

Caius is confirmed to be in the game and the train kart excited me too.
