These redone cinematics in FFXIII look bloody glorious. :wub:

 

The whole thing does look great, even on a One S and 1080p monitor.

I grabbed my copy off the shelf at home to bring with me, got it installed this morning, found my cloud save ( from 11/1/2012 !! ) and am about to dive back into disc 3, maybe I'll get it finished now :)

To maybe balance out some opinion, I absolutely loved FF13.

Another game that I waited to play on a media black out.. then didn't check the internet till I was pretty much finished and totally shocked and the wave of negativity directed at it. 

I liked the almost progressive tutorial that was Cocoon -- even the name hits at the contained nature of the first chunk of the game -- that totally opens up with Pulse. It all feels a lot more deliberate than people seem to realise.

I'm playing FFXIII for the first time on my X and right now the linearity and slow ramp up of complexity is really nice comfort food. I can relax into the world without having a massive list of chores to do or find. It's really nice. With the X enhancements the character models look up to date (except for their fingers) it really shows the quality of the art work.

What's so bad about those in comparison?

 

The production values drop off drastically. XIII 2 is such a convoluted mess it is practically impossible without a guide and Lightning Returns feels more like a mobile game. They are confusing cash grabs lacking in focus and any real charm. 

 

Just my opinion of course but I'm right.

I love that every time I click on this thread hoping for Need For Speed Hot Pursuit I see Gerbik hoping for Tenchu. 

 

I really hope the two get announced on the same day. Or failing that I hope Hot Pursuit gets announced and screw Tenchu. 

 

Anyone remember how good Hot Pursuit was?

Add me to the ‘pray for Hot Pursuit, screw Gerbik and his Tenchu’* crew. 

 

*I kinda hope Back Compat Santa is kind to Gerbik too

The fact that not a single Need for Speed game has been made backwards compatible makes me think Hot Pursuit is unlikely to arrive. Loads of EA's other games from that period have been added - all the Dead Space games, Mirror's Edge, MoH: Airborne, all the Mass Effect games, Skate 3, Burnout Paradise, etc - which makes me think there must be some reason why the NFS games aren't coming. Probably licensing.
