fuck you squeenix

SO I went to [livejournal.com profile] hikaridonya's house today to hang out and take a break from stuff. We were both super exhausted, so we didn't do much but mooch, but she has bought an xbox 360 so I got to play Final Fantasy XIII on it. I told myself I'd only play the first 10 minutes or so.


...Three hours later I was still running through it, complaining that I had a splitting headache and I should stop but can't because it is too fucking pretty. I had to find a save point (which I wasn't originally going to do either) and make Donya take the controller away from me because I could've easily have played for HOURS.

My thoughts so far:

OMG SNOW STOP SAYING HERO.
OMG VANILLE STOP BEING SO FUCKING PERKY AND WALK LIKE A NORMAL PERSON
OMG IF YOU WERE AN ANIMAL, HOPE, YOU'D BE A HEDGEHOG WITH ALL THAT CURLING UP IN THE FACE OF DANGER YOU DO STOP BEING SO FUCKING EMO also he reminds me of roxas.
NO SERIOUSLY VANILLE, WHAT ACCENT IS THAT EVEN
LIGHTNING STOP BEING LIKE CLOUD IT'S ANNOYING. I like it when she punches the characters I don't like and rolls her eyes at them. She seems to share my annoyances.
WHY CAN'T I RUN AROUND WHEN I AM FIGHTING, YOU COULD IN FINAL FANTASY XII
SNOW WILL YOU STOP REFERRING TO YOUR CRYSTAL GF OKAY NOBODY CARES
Holy crap the details they did to this are stunning. HIS MOUTH IS MOVING WHEN IT'S IN PLAY MODE AND HE'S TALKING TO ME WHEN I WALK PAST, HOLY FUCK


So far, my favourite characters are Sazh and his Chocobo because he's a fucking legend, and that Blonde kid right at the beginning who was adorable and fighting with the resistance and... wearing goggles. I'll give you two guesses why he is my favourite. It's a shame he's not a playable character 8|

So in summary, I was shouting at the characters and complaining about the battle system, but about 2 hours in I got accustomed to it and was really enjoying it. I'm undoubtedly going back for more 8|b

hahahahah yeah Snow is kind of a douche XD has Lightning gotten to be badass yet? Aaand where are you storywise? SO I DO NOT SPOIL YOU?

13 is so awesome and it only gets better :D

Also, Sazh is freaking awesome and I have a Lightning muse XD

Oh oh! I squeed so hard when I discovered the NPS talk 8D IT WAS WHAT I COMPLAINED ABOUT SO MUCH IN 12

I AM IN THE BIT WITH THE FROZEN CRYSTAL LAKE OF DOOM AND THEY ARE ALL OH SHIT WE ARE L'CIE AND EVERYONE IS SAD AND SNOW HAS BUGGERED OFF.

NO SHE'S NOT BADASS YET. I MEAN, SHE IS SORT OF, BUT SHE'S STILL ON MY 'ANNOYING' LIST 8|

Yeah, clicking A on everyone was annoying. It's cool to catch snippets now!

[identity profile] fairytaledreams.livejournal.com 2010-04-21 11:54 pm (UTC)(link)
LAKE BRESHA IS SO GORGEOUS OMG

xDDD she'll get better. They ... okay most of them get better eventually. Snow never does IMHO >>a

yeeaahhh and it's so realistic too! AHAAAAA I LOVE VOICES

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:25 am (UTC)(link)
OH MY GOODNESS YES. The sheer amount of DETAIL they put into the crystal is amazing. I was just running around, looking in awe.

Well, at least Lighting punches him when he gets too annoying for the both of us

[identity profile] fairytaledreams.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 01:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I KNOW RIGHT. I was just staaaaaring. It freaking sparkles!!! And there are crystals floating in the air if you stand still and look! It's sdhjgdasfkhasdfhjgsf;lhadfs so gorgeous!

YES. I love that XD Oh Lightning. I died laughing each time. |D

The game is v. fuckin' good about character development. :3 (Vanille's accent is Australian but, ah-- "bogan". Lots of the sharper twanging.)

Not gonna lie, I wanted to punch Hope through a wall and Snow was almost as irritating, but the more obnoxious aspects of their personality fade quite a bit.

Also nnnngh when you see Fang. Nnnngh. *keeps the hell away from spoilers*

WILL ALSO NOTE THAT VANILLE'S VA IS *ACTUALLY* AUSTRALIAN B|;;; there's been some confusion about that. Fang's, too.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:26 am (UTC)(link)
See that's where I wasn't sure. Sometimes she sounds Australian but sometimes she sounds british and sometimes she sounds A HORRIFYING MIX OF THE TWO, so I get really confused. It sounds like she's trying a bit too hard.

I've already seen Fang from the trailers, and I have to say, even though I'd never met her, she was instantly my favourite character for BADASS reasons.

HOPE GETS BETTER! D8

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:32 am (UTC)(link)
I HOPE SO BECAUSE RIGHT NOW I WANT TO SLAP HIM

[identity profile] meevees.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 12:19 am (UTC)(link)
I haven't played (I'm not big on FF anyway really) but omfg all of their names :'|.

[identity profile] meevees.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 03:52 pm (UTC)(link)
They're awful lmfao. I don't understand why they can't just give their characters Japanese names that would make sense and not sound dumb. Or at least actual English names not random words lol.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 04:17 pm (UTC)(link)
one is called Sarah.

But she's dead.

[identity profile] meevees.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 04:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh.

Well she's my favorite.

Because her name is normal. And my favorite character always dies anyway. So I might as well pick the already dead one.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 04:28 pm (UTC)(link)
I like your logic there

[identity profile] offensive.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 01:00 am (UTC)(link)
Fang is v. best character. She's the only one who doesn't start off annoying as fuck. She just goes straight into fucking awesome.

it's too bad it takes forever to get to her X(

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:27 am (UTC)(link)
I've seen bits of her from the trailers, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to adore her 8D

[identity profile] deltashade.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
Concurring on what the others have said re: Fang Mysterious Woman.

Hope gets better, and he gets better relatively soon. It's almost like the creators realized that he was a whiny loser!

Snow does not get better. Snow is good for getting punched. No, seriously, that's his actual job.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:29 am (UTC)(link)
I hope her does because damn, the foetal position is NOT a good fighting stance you fucking idiot.

Vanille doesn't get any less perky does she 8|

[identity profile] deltashade.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 02:28 pm (UTC)(link)
He has the highest natural Magic stat in the game, so it would be pretty silly if he never learned how to fight properly.

Vanille doesn't really get less perky, but she has a really, really good reason for being so perky in the first place.

[identity profile] lynxgriffin.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
THANKFULLY EVERYONE GETS BETTER BUT THE GAME CONTINUES TO BE PRETTY :D

Also, Vanille's accent is vaguely Australian, but she's actually trying to mask it because SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:30 am (UTC)(link)
PRETTTYYY YAY

Well at least that makes sense since it does sound australian, but then sounds british and I don't know what else. I just thought it was bad voice acting 8|

[identity profile] lynxgriffin.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 04:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Sunleth Waterscape and the Disneyland for Chocobos are one of the two prettiest places. :D

Yeah, it really kind of confused me at first. But once I got to the SPOILER SPOILER part, I was all "OHHHHH so THAT'S why her accent seemed to keep changing on and off!"

[identity profile] starcrossed-sky.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 06:04 am (UTC)(link)
also he reminds me of roxas.

SO GLAD NOT ALONE. srsly, I kept looking up and going "Why is Roxas in FF?" all. The. Time.

WHY CAN'T I RUN AROUND WHEN I AM FIGHTING, YOU COULD IN FINAL FANTASY XII

Word.

HAS YOU SEEN A FANG YET?

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:33 am (UTC)(link)
Especially when he was wearing his hood.

NO NOT YET, I AM ONLY 3 HOURS IN

[identity profile] starcrossed-sky.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 04:39 pm (UTC)(link)
GO FIND A FANG.

*wanders off*

[identity profile] hikaridonya.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:20 am (UTC)(link)
I miss you already D: Why can you not live with me, or something? Then I'd get to be all cuddly all the time. And you could use my Xbox.

Also, I totally knew you'd get sucked in. Despite how whiny and annoying the characters are right at the start. Battle system will start getting better again, soon. And I told you from the start that you could just create another save slot :P As long as you didn't overwrite mine!

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:32 am (UTC)(link)
BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE TO KICK SOMEONE ELSE OUT. 8( Dude next year you can visit whenever you want, k.

SHHH. I HAVE TOO MUCH WORK TO DO 8(

[identity profile] hikaridonya.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:35 am (UTC)(link)
I suppose that'll have to suffice for now *wibbles* And then kidnapping you. Or something.

PFHT. We'll have to have an epic session again, or something. I need to carry on playing it too. I've just started disk three.

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:36 am (UTC)(link)
When I finish all my projects, I'll live at your house and complete it before I go home 8|

[identity profile] hikaridonya.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:38 am (UTC)(link)
... That'd be more epic than you realise. We could actually tidy up the living room and have a sleep over down there, or something. And just do this massive gaming session.

What do you think? :D

[identity profile] purapea.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:39 am (UTC)(link)
it sounds epic and SIGN ME UP FOR EPIC TOWN

[identity profile] hikaridonya.livejournal.com 2010-04-22 09:41 am (UTC)(link)
ALREADY SIGNED YOU UP. HUZZAH.
