About Crystal Colwell

What's up everyone? Crystal here! I spend my time writing up the news for you all and keeping us all up to date with incoming game info from Japan. I do a little bit of everything else around here, too. 🙂 Happy Reading!




  • DeathUriel

    Am I the only one seeing an Assassin behind her in the first photo? D=

    • Shhhh the assassin is sneaking up on her! :p

    • smacd

      Yeah. they had crossover costumes from Assassin’s Creed as DLC costumes you can buy.

  • RagunaXL

    one of the most underrated RPGs ever and one of the best this generation! good to see it’s getting some love, even if it’s only in japan. thanks for posting!

    • You are welcome. 🙂 I will keep an eye out for incoming news on the game for you and keep posting it to the website. I am curious as to what you guys think about this game as I have never played it. I tend to like older Final Fantasy games but I am not too keen on most of them after X-2. I thought about giving this one a shot though.

    • The game, in my opinion was fun. The big key factor u have to look out for is, the monsters u take into battle with u. You are going to have to understand the battle system too. Overall, fun game. You have to be patience with it.

      Is the story really as awful as most seem to say it is? I expect some rough parts of the script here and there, but for someone who thought 13 was kinda cool, how is it?

    • I’m not sure if I should be spoiling the story if u haven’t played the game. The story wasn’t that bad. You are going to have to replay the game to get the secret ending though. If u want to spoil yourself, u can always use youtube ;p

      Story was interesting, yet underdeveloped, IMO. I thought XIII could have done more in terms of connecting the characters to the story yet had an interesting world built for the story. XIII-2 was the other way around – characters were much more connected to the goings-on, but the world wasn’t quite as developed.

      Cool? Yes. Could have been easily cooler? Yes.
      Oh, and XIII-2’s ending needs XIII-3 to go with it (hopefully that won’t prove to be a bad thing).

      Game was fun overall, but it felt rushed in development. It’s about half the length of XIII for the main game (30 hours give or take).

      Exploration was poor, especially with artificial barriers (literal artificial barriers) littering the map and since the reused layouts for various time periods didn’t get much use story-wise. World felt very disconnected. Progression, although not strictly linear (like XIII or X), felt forced. A few puzzles were added in arbitrary locations which were mostly fun, but didn’t feel connected at all to the game (like puzzles in say FF VI).

      Mini-game area was a bust for me since it nearly had the odds of a real Casino.

      Battle system was fun and more balanced than in XIII. The monster third party members were tricky to level up unless you like grinding and limited the strategic options a bit.

      Story was more focused and the characters were more endearing (read: they didn’t spend the first half of the game squabbling). Some plot points felt shoehorned and hard to grasp, but the overall narrative is interesting, if a bit underdeveloped. The ending was trickier to grasp without a knowledge of the FF XIII mythos and kind of needed the Lightning DLC to go with it, and does need XIII-3 to properly resolve it, but it is probably the gutsiest ending in an FF I’ve played.

      I’d recommend you play XIII first (if you haven’t already) to get the most out of XIII-2.

  • Hmm, if those release over here, and I can get the game for $10 and the dl for $15, in physical form, I will no longer have a reason to avoid this game. The one thing that made me avoid this game more than anything else was the dlc arena fights. It made me really mad to learn that they relegated Gilgamesh to dlc status instead of hidden boss, and then they go and massacre his battle music to boot.

    Still bugs me that you get like 2% more content in the DLC pack for over 2/3s the price of the main game (and that’s still a better price than it originally released at). Why not just bundle all the DLC in with the re-release and charge me 2% more, aside from trying to price gouge?
