Reading about this makes me wish that I had a, PlayStation 3 so I can play it.  Also, the part about Snow is interesting.  I personally like his character's new look, it seems there's more Kingdom Hearts influence than one would think.  Which I guess makes the answer to it all, if it isn't good Kingdom Hearts can fix almost everything. xD

Maybe that's why they cut Riku's hair in KH with no explanation!?

I MISS HIS LONG HAIR!

Snow looks kick ass though!

C'mon, poor Riku couldn't see past that junglefest of a hairstyle for his life. You've gotta be compassionate, Slay Slay. XD

He could have just trimmed his bangs though. He didn't really needed to cut it THAT short.

I recently discover very quick back-step that you can use while casting a quick spell like Fire and Blizzard. Using such spells will allow lightning to step back and perform said spell to keep her distance. However you can cancel the animation before the cast and you can rapidly open the distance between your opponent and you. Since you cancel your spell, the atb gauge does not deplete as much.

Ah man, I really hope Square doesn't fuck this up. I could watch vids of the JPN version on youtube but, I want to wait and try it for myself.

Good to read that you're enjoying the demo, I wish I could too. Also, I hope that Square doesn't mess this up as well, but it is doing good in Japan. Which is probably a good sign since, Japan is highly critical of RPG's.

Then again, Japan and the US are especially different. It's funny that half of the US that has played 13 hates it while the majority of Japan likes it for some reason. I dunno why. Lol I'm pretty nuetral on this series.

[Rant Incoming]

Anyways, FF13 had potential to be a very good game. It's just the story, the character interaction/relationships, the linearity, and the length it takes for it to become challenging and good is what turned a lot of people off. Once you get on Pulse, the game starts to shine in terms of challenge. You can't just "press X to win" anymore. Barthandules 2 will rape you up the ass if you did that. I had to look up a couple strategies because it was so darn hard along with every boss afterwards. I'm alright with the combat that 13 and 13-2 had when there's a very challenging boss or enemy to fight. I was even ecstatic when you can capture and fight along monsters in 13-2. I thought that shit was awesome. You can't tell me you weren't pumped after getting your Cactuar or Chocobo.

And one other thing, personally, I think the relationship that Serah and Snow is not all that expanded upon or even relevant. You barely see any interaction between them in 13 and 13-2 and you barely know why they fell in love. It's annoying that the game shows you how faithful Snow is but never shows how he would normally interact with Serah other than that one scene or two.

I think Lightning should have been Snow's love interest and/or vice versa personally while Serah looks up to Snow like an older brother. It just makes more sense to me that way because they do interact with one another very much. I mean, it wouldn't make Lightning such a dick if you saw her punch Snow in the face for no reason. I can see her punching him just cause she's just worried about him rather than just hating him for completely no reason. (Classic Tsundere) 

I dunno, I can see what 13 could had been if they just tweaked a few things with the first game without changing the core combat and storyline if they were just consistent with the story and the difficulty in general. Which is why I'm looking forward to see what they have in store for Lightning Returns in terms of content and challenge. I'm very impressed by this battle system since it's very refreshing to control someone for once. I was utterly disappointing by Fuse because the demo was so good. I really do hope it doesn't pull a Fuse on me.

I thought that was a bit awkward how the popularity differs in different countries. In, Japan people relatively like the game and enjoy while America and Europe was highly critical of the game. Although, it could have something to do with nationality which the Japanese do tend to do that a lot. Not to say that the, U.S and E.U territories don't do that either, because everyone does it. Of course, I hope they don't drop the ball with this new game that they have coming. I am hoping that this game will live up to what they have shown so far.

Here's a fairly informative video that makes things we already know more clear and reveals new features as well.

I found this video to be pretty enjoyable and I'm sure fans of older Final Fantasy games will in enjoy the 16-bit graphics like I did.  A recap of the Lightning Saga up to now.

To be fair, it seemed to make a lot of sense in that video with all the fat cut out.

I find it funny how Lightning's development was being an asshole in the first minute then to being indifferent and unemotional for the rest of the video.

Can't wait for LR though.

I thought that was pretty funny too, the part when Serah finds Lightning and she's really excited here sister is still alive really shows it.  Because, Lightning doesn't eve say "thank you for finding me."  She just basically says, "shut the fuck up, you need to go do this now."

Same here, I got play a lot of the demo the gameplay is fun.

Ugh, I'm disappointed with the color customization. It's not all that great if you can't change the color of the whole garment. It restricts you to certain color schemes. 

But so far so good. I had a good amount of laughs when I see random NPCs bump into me when I'm conversing with someone. So rude! And I saw one kid keep tripping every 5 steps for a few minutes. I can see great things coming from these NPCs.

I was disappointed with the color customization as well.

I agree, it has been a good game so far and I have played around with the costumes and stuff.  Right now my most OP schema is paired with, Buster Sword.  I can't think of the name of the costume I'm using right now.
