SentUaMessage also had a sly pop at the Sony cock-up on the Inside Xbox section of the Dash.

I noticed that, there was a thread about it on the xbox.com forums too, shame there isn't a video of someone killing the two fuckwits that host it, wishful thinking eh?  ;D

Well after 4 days with it, im slighty disapointed,
FFXIII Has no way of going off the beaten path at all. Atleast in a game like Fable or Mass Effect I can do other things.
Just a straight on rails game, no freedom to even do side missions, the combat system is really bland also.
Why didnt they bother tossing in side quests? Why a 100% focus on the main story? Not one of the other FF games did this, they all had other optional side quests to mess with to keep the games replay value up.

Yeah it makes perfect sense. Like Resident Evil 5 is a good game nut a poor resident evil game :)
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

Older Final Fantasy titles existed in a world before DLC.   ;)

Thought so, thanks for confirming Craig :)

So, if I've never played a FF game before, is it worth playing, bearing in mind I've really enjoyed Fable II, Fallout 3, Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 but am struggling to get in to Dragon Age: Origins?

those are western RPG's ... they're more like adventure games, this is a highly stat based and technical game, no matter how the magazines word how they've streamlined the game, i'm finding untold depth to the system, the game is also very difficult. Almost every boss has taken me 2-5 goes to finish.

Failed, Maibs, Luke and a few others will be give you better advice to be fair mate as they play these games a lot more than me, i'm not a big RPG fan but will still play this at some point, if it's as good as Lost Odyssey, no doubt it's better, then i'll be happy.

Doesn't sound like my type of game then to be honest, I didn't like Lost Odyssey at all. Thanks for the info guys :)
