These games are so badass… kinda not digging the whole XIII/Versus thing though. Whatever happened to just making one fucking game? I don’t want to keep track of different versions of all this shit. Just make a game and sell it. If you’re gonna make two games, give them two different names or at least two different numbers.
Here’s another link to less copyright-infringing versions of the trailers.
When I got to the scene between 2:07 and 2:27 in the not Versus trailer I thought they had just shown two new characters. Then I recognized some of the frames from pics I had seen earlier in the year and remembered that those aren’t new characters in that scene. Btw, who’s the bastard who made Carbuncle into that disturbing clown thingy. It’s just so wrong on so many levels.
As for the ‘No! This is VERSUS!!!’ trailer I’m really hoping that the evil looking guy at 3:28 is the game’s big bad guy. It would really help to offset the fact that the main character is channeling Naruto’s Sasuke.
If that’s not Carbuncle then I’ll eat my tennis shoes!
Also, I came across new trailers for both The 3rd FF XIII game as well as The 3rd Birthday here. I figure that this place is as good as any to post a link to them since at least one of them is a FF XIII game (and the other one makes for a nice bonus too).
actually, the evil looking guy is the games good guy’s (noctis) father (look carefully at the eyes theyre like noctis’ ) (he’s supposably gonna be a bit like cecil in that he’s appears to be bad but is really a good guy) and is a mafia-like boss.
the bad guy is actually the girl we see fighting at the end.
(There’s rumours that noctis and the other three guys are like the turks from ffvii or SEED from ffviii cos they act like a mercenary group)
The black dude seems kinda off to me. (Maybe it’s just me?) Also, what’s with the the bird? That a baby Chocobo or something? On the plus side, FFXIII isn’t being racist like many other games in the series.
Ultratech: Don’t know about that “racist bit” in real-life terms, but FFXIII’s design suggests the 60s to 70s are a design basis, now we just have to wait for the country the game’s enviroment will be based on.
