Need someone to mooch off of for the FFxiii demo!

As the post says the FFxiii demo is coming out soon (I guess March 2009 is kinda soon…) and it’s supposed to be quite chunky demowise (and exclusively on the PS3 *sniffle* 😦 ). It’s bundled with Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete, which the demo itself is supposed to be longer than. The original Advent Children was 101 minutes long so since it’s the director’s cut it should be close to 2 hours long or longer. That’s very cool seeing as how you can probably get into a decent chunk of storyline in that time because the demo is based off of the opening segment of the game. But seeing as how the demo isn’t coming out until March, we have awhile to wait for the actual game 😦 .

There was some more stuff revealed along with the demo in Famitsu’s 3 page article. Apparently the unknown female sidekick has gone through some tough times in the past. Well I guess I shouldn’t say sidekick though seeing as how each character in the game is a protagonist instead of just having a main and supporting characters. The man with the shotgun who was originally nicknamed “Mr. 33CM” also has a name based off of weather. Maybe it’s thunder or rain or hurricane or something. I’m betting on rain. The gameplay is going to be like most Final Fantasy games in the fact that it’s a party battle system where each player takes a turn to fight. Oh also, the Advent Children Complete movie will be on a separate disc than the demo.

That’s all for the news on FFxiii for now but let’s hope some more gets leaked out really soon 😀 .

Lightning and her cohorts

July 21, 2008 at 9:21 pm (Random, Video Games) (, , , )

So I decided to take a deeper look into the characters of the new Final Fantasy game to see if I could figure out their names yet. I’ve failed so far at finding any names for the supporting 2 characters but I have found some info about them.

Name: Codename Lightning (Real name unknown)
Weapon: Gunblade
Fight Style: She has buttons on her index finger and thumb that allow her to control gravity. This enables her to flip through the air without a second thought. I think it’s really cool that finally someone has a reason for being able to use “matrix-like” abilities.
Background: Apparently she has some sort of amnesia but may have been a past soldier due to the 2 yellow marks on her shoulder symbolizing her rank.

Name: Unknown
Weapon: Bow
Pet: She seems to have a scary little machine bird/badger from the video.
Background: She seems to be a forest person because that’s where she is in the video when her badger friend comes out of a magical golden disc from space (Seem familiar Beast Wars fans?). The fact that her main weapon is a bow also goes along with this theory.

Name: Unknown
Weapon: Rifle
Background: There’s not a lot known about this character so maybe he’s meant to be mysterious similar to Auron from Final Fantasy X. Toriyama said something about his relationship with Lightning being complicated so to me that could mean love interest, rival or just maybe a friend.

Story: In Final Fantasy there’s a space colony called Cocoon which is home to millions of people. Also, there is a place called Pulse located outside Cocoon that the residents of Cocoon are afraid of. They also believe that anyone from Pulse is part of a plot to invade Cocoon. Wow paranoid. There are crystals that protect Cocoon that may be similar to the auracite of the Final Fantasy Revenant Wings ds game. These crystals allow the people to summon machines(possibly like machina from X) and creatures(maybe like the espers in Revenant Wings).

I’d just like to comment that I love the 2nd girls pigtails. Super cute lol. I really want that gunblade as well. Also I think the guy will be like Auron in thinking that he’s a total badass without a need for anyone’s help but his own.

Edit: Before I forget look at this amazing video!

FFxiii

July 18, 2008 at 12:52 pm (Video Games) (, )

I’m really excited about Final Fantasy 13 coming out. It’s written/directed by the same people that made the ds game (Revenant Wings) and Final Fantasy X. Also, the main character is a girl without all the backup characters being girls as well. The main character’s name is lightning. She’s apparently supposed to be a character similar to Cloud.

Oh also, I almost forgot that this game isn’t PS3 exclusive. Yay! I don’t know anyone I could mooch off of for their PS3 so this makes it even more awesome.

Edit: I just realized my comment about lightning being similar to cloud and it made me lol :).
