    Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks this is just terrible.

    A) The whole concept is stupid from a lore perspective and is happening solely to act as free marketing for FFXIII-3 to an already devoted FF fanbase
    B) It's going to be an open world FATE that will be insanely popular; the Behemoth / Odin versions have panned out so well...
    C) It's supposed to be vanity gear, but who the hell wants to look like Snow who himself vaguely resembles a homeless person

    Have fun spamming Holy / Blizzard II because you can't see anything; I'd rather run laps around the Aertheryte at Revenant's Toll.

    gtfo.

    Any FF fan would be giddy over this kind of stuff. Even if this XIII stuff is propaganda, it's still badass. We can only hope that a positive reaction to this would bring in even more crossovers like what theyre doing with XIV/DQ/XI.

    I would kill to see previous FF scenarios brought in to XIV.

    SE can twist the lore to bend anyway they want to fit all of this in, but it really doesn't matter assuming it doesn't infringe on the main story.

    Immersion.

    You cannot tell me Dragon Kick in a longcoat (even a hobo longcoat) wouldn't be sweet as fuck.

    Seriously considering using my Fantasia to grow some balls for that coat.

    Edit: Noticed at 0:36 Lightning does a sword flurry thing that makes Rage of Halone sfx, lol.

    I could see them adding Via Infinito or Giruvegan as other legacy FF-themed dungeons similar to Crystal Tower if they plan on carrying more FFs into this and aren't just using the Lightning shit as advertising.

    I never kept up with that old "Gold Saucer" news back in the day. Was that just gonna be straight up the Gold Saucer or just a similar kind of place?

    Straight up Gold Saucer. They hinted it will be FFVII-esque, but added to FFXIV. will be able to gamble and play games and all that. No mention of Battle Square type fights, but it definitely leaves much to the imagination. They also mentioned that there won't be any major news about it until around ver 2.3.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    I fucking love this kind of stuff, not gonna lie, and not ashamed.

    I'd rather they do fanstuff like this for free with an event, than make it like buying vanity shit ala Blizzard.

    Also, people are forgetting, this isn't just a promo for 13, but it also gets 13 fans more interested in 14. I am all for any side silly stuff that will help keep this game p2p.

    13 fans interested in 14? Iunno. Maybe. Thankfully the trials are decently long so they'd be able to see if it'd be the game for them.

    I hope it's not held to just FFXIII though. I mean, obviously we have some other stuff thrown in (Bronzed Beauty, FF2 battle thing remixed, Magitek, etc) but.. oh god if they brought some more notable stuff from 7-9.. that'd be outstanding.

    I have zero problems with this since it's all "Final Fantasy." The other-franchise (DQX) crossover stuff is where I get a little bit iffy... but luckily I have some nostalgia invested in DQ.

    It was weird to see the Assassin's Creed and Mass Effect outfits in XIII-2... They have so much damn IP to pull from within the franchise, I don't think it's all that necessary to break the 4th wall that much.

    Same. To this day I'm still hoping for a Gilgamesh fight on a giant bridge.

    We're already getting Crystal Tower from FFIII, so why not Kefka's Tower from FFVI? It'd be a great way to use the three-party alliance system.

    I am one of probably 4 people who doesn't love FFVI to death and I love this idea.
    Or I guess on a smaller scale, 3-pronged boss fight ala Sephiroth's final boss first form (not that exact fight though please no).

    It still boggles my mind that they've made/making two sequels to the worse selling non-mmo FF. (Probably worse? I'd be interested to know the sales figures for XIII vs. 1.0)

    But then again they also decided to dump a ton of money into remaking 1.0. SE has never been good at making financially sound decisions. Or good decisions in general.

    Point is: XIII sucks, this is going to be completely shoe-horned in and terrible. I don't understand why people would hope for anything other than that.
