Funfact, the reason why versus is taking so long is because it's being developed in parrallel with Kingdom hearts 3.

Neither of those games is going to come out in 2011.

A ridiculous, shittastic, stupid beyond the conventions of JRPGs storyline.

FF8 had a good story that just ended up falling apart. Not everyone is fit to write 30 hours of dialogue. Let's face it, that's almost 3 seasons of network television, sometimes they just lose track of what they set out to do. And god help them if they have multiple writers.

FF13 is the same way. The world, the characters, the pro and an- tagonists, the setting and the conflict, on paper, it's all fine. The problem is that the story is relayed so poorly that it is almost impossible to make sense of it all, and when that happens you are left with 0 sense of disbelief, so things like the ending of the game come off even more of a shitty dues ex machina than usual.

FF10 has structurally terrible characters, but because the story is told so much better, you can at least sympathize with them.

FF10 is a masterpiece if you compare it to FF13 and FF8.

If you're under 15 years of age maybe. No offence. Eastern religions argue the limitless beyond the within aspect, so I would hardly say Square and Disney made a splash other then making us blush with memories of our childhood to upper mid teens.

You don't have to bring that aspect up, to be frank. Different perspective / arguments /fanboy-ism in video game isn't connected to some religions aspect, in my opinion

You probably just played the first one. You need to play the rest. You guys are very judgmental, you seriously need to play more games.

No I played KH2 with the superior Sephiroth battle and Ursela battle. I've played KH1,2,2 Final Remix, Chain of Memories that came with it, and the DS game. I'm pretty aware of what KH has to offer, even planned on getting the superior hand held PSP game.

I keep up with a lot of SE titles as well as those that get talked about underground and pop culture.

Sorry Badrats, I was taking a religions class and got my thoughts caught up. It was metaphoric in my mind. I just hate comparing the real boy and key and mickey mouse, made it seem more artistic.

Gamefly is having a used sale so I got some games to give away to family. I am technically at the limit I usually spend for Christmas shopping, but these deals were too good to pass up as small gifts!


Heavy Rain for $20 (free shipping)


Metroid: Other M for $15 (free shipping)
