Final Fantasy XIII-2 Demo

As all Final Fantasy fans know by now, February 03, 2012 is the release date (US) for the newest installment of the Final Fantasy series. Which actually isn’t a new game, but a sequel. Like all Final Fantasy games that have been release, this once is being closely watch by fan in anticipation of what is to come. For example, what will the graphics be like, how is the battle system going to work, etc, etc.

These questions are nothing new to a game getting ready to be release. Fans follow websites (hopefully mine :P) and youtube trying to get a glimpse of what the game has in store. Well this time SquareEnix has done something a little different. They have release a demo for play. Take a look

What did you thinK? Have you downloaded the demo for PS3 or Xbox360? Share your thoughts. Leave a comment or better yet, head on over to the forums and lets discuss the game. I look forward to seeing you there.



Final Fantasy XIII-2 Pre-order goodness

I interupt the wallpapers to bring you this little note on FFXIII-2. This may be helpful for those of you who like to pre-order games for all the goodies that you can get. This was written by bdagger over at Exodus and I wanted to share her research with everyone who hasn’t been paying attention. – You get an exclusive boss battle with Omega in the coliseum. When you beat him you get him as one of your allied monsters. This will be part of the new monster collection feature of XIII-2.

Best Buy – Here you’ll get a FFXIII novella (hardcover) that bridges the gap between XIII and XIII-2.

And Finally, Gamestop – You’ll get an exclusive costume for Serah, who, if you haven’t been following, is a playable character.

Now, for the collector’s edition here’s what you can expect: First and foremost, you’ll get the entire four disc soundtrack to the game (usually something you have to pick up as an import or directly from the Square-Enix webstore). You’ll also get a full 20 page artbook featuring concept art. You’ll also get a spiffy hardcover case with glorious Amano artwork on it.

And finally, a few last tidbits – If you’re not keen to pre-order or you just want to snag all three bonuses, the Serah costume and the Omega battle will be DLC you can purchase at a later date. (Which means Best Buy is the way to go – at least that’s where I’m going). And, there’s also been an announcement that Ezio (of Assassin’s Creed) will make a cameo in the form of a DLC costume for Noel Kreiss.

Althalus 🙂
