Mordy: Okay, it’s a problem when you LITERALLY spending more time watching your game than playing it. This is ridiculous. I really regret getting xiii tbh :/

Wired Review

s1ocki: My friend has been waiting for this for YEARS. He ordered it from japan (he speaks japanese). He HATED IT 😦 😦 😦

Zero Punctuation Review

”13 Reasons I Hate FF13”

forksclovetofu : My immediate impression is that the game is SUMPTUOUS and LUSH but not very engaging. I lasted about two hours and turned away in sad and weary defeat. Call me old fashioned but I enjoy actually PLAYING my games rather than having them played for me. Plus: Leona Lewis? Really?

Yoichi Wada (Square Enix Prez/CEO) Interview

adam : All i’ve done so far is push the left stick fwd and mash X for 2 hours. Still having fun tho.

Linearity Defined

aarrissi-a-roni: Even though every character in it is utterly unbearable, I am having a great time. It’s just an endless series of beautifully drawn and managed battles punctuated by flipping over to soup up your characters from time to time, loosely strung together by a story that is as compelling and necessary as the Mortal Kombat backstory. What can i say; it’s really working for me.

Famitsu Interview with Tetsuya Nomura

Mitch Krpata: Screw all y’all. This game was great.

The Conundrum of FFXIII

Roberto Spiralli: imagine you went to see a magician. he gets on stage and he pulls a handkerchief out of his sleeve. it is one of those long strings of handkerchiefs, multi-coloured, that keeps on coming. the colours are so beautiful and the material seems to shimmer. it’s breathtaking and fun to watch this long chain of fabric keep flowing from inside his sleeve. and it keeps coming. and coming. a few hours pass and some people start to leave. you are pretty sure that this is going somewhere, though, and you know that he is gonna have some other tricks. still the handkerchief keeps coming. 10 hours gone and he’s still going. more people have left. this is cool, but something happens, right? 15 hours… 20 hours… the room is almost empty and finally you tear your eyes away from the endless flow of colours and with regret you get up and leave. you hear later that the trick went on for 45 hours, just that same on trick, and that some people even stayed all the way to the end.

if i had had time to write a blurb on FFXIII that would’ve been it.
