Luckily, I found the PS3 demo at the PSStore and am downloading it now. It's a 2GB download and comes with another costume. Also, there's a free theme for the game, which I got an installed. Other than the info I've given here, I know nothing else about this game. I do love Final Fantasy, with VIII being my all-time favorite of the series, but I had some issues with XIII and XIII-2. Maybe it was because of what I was going through when I played both games, maybe it was because I found some of the music to be too depressing, but I didn't fall in love with XIII as much as I'm used to for a Final Fantasy game. I think maybe my own issues at the time inhibited my enjoyment of the game, maybe that fit though as it seems to be a bit of a sad series. Still, I'm hoping this new FF is awesome and wows me and makes me love the series. I'm hoping some of the music doesn't return. I did like that metal Chocobo song, that was cool, they can bring that back, but otherwise I want new FFXIII music.
It seems I'm not the only one with even a slight disappointment in the FF series as of late, I've heard some others (not going to point any fingers *WBS* *cough cough*) seem to feel roughly the same. We want a FF that kicks ass and makes us fall in love with it. It's not too much to ask since the series itself is quite epic and the fact that it's survived and thrived this long is amazing.
So, what are your thoughts? Have you seen anything about the game that I haven't mentioned here that you want to talk about? Are you going to get it? Well, at least now I know I'll have a game to write about soon and I have about 10 days until I get my hands on it. Luckily, I'll have the demo soon and I also bought Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Collection for the PS3.
