Hey, Rob, have you been playing NV lately, y'know, downloading the patches? In addition to fixing some issues with weapons and ammo, they also have really cut down on the number of bugs I've encountered, though I'm playing the PS3 version.

Also, the thing a lot of people don't realize about FFXIII (Or at least I assume they don't, since nobody ever mentions it), is that its basically an antithesis to FFXII. XII was different in a lot of ways, it was hugely expansive, with lots of walking and fighting mobs to get to the next story spot, and you could get lost because there was no mini-map. Combat was real time, and anyone could wield any weapon or cast any spell. XII was also very fantasy, as opposed to the sci-fi/fantasy that a lot of later and wildly popular Final Fantasys (Like VII, VIII and IX). So, SE gets a lot of flak for this game that, while very good, was very different from lots of traditional Final Fantasy stuff. So, they go the complete other way. Straight line, no needing to find stuff, no complex quests for the best gear. Very heavy on the technomagic, returning to classic style summons as opposed to the new ones we had in XII. SE listened to the vocal chunks of their fanbase, and now everyone says they have made a shitty game.

I have not. I've been meaning to though. With the new DLC I figured there would be a few more bug patches coming along side. That's typically how XBL works. New DLC, everyone gets patches, game gets better.

To me, FF(Insert Number Here) sucks. I've only played 7 to completion but now I look back and realize that, it to, is a shitty game for me. FF has yet to deliver a game that plays in a way I enjoy.

I have never been a huge fan of the fall out series but I love the ff series and ff7 was ok but 8 through 12 (excluding 10-2) were games that had strong story and great battle systems and a huge world to explore and great mini games to play. People wanted full control of they're party thats why 12 allowed everyone to do everything and yes people bitched about it. The bottom line is that gamers are jaded bitches and don't really know what they want. 13 was barely an rpg and was a disappointment to fans of the series I doubt that SE takes this game seriously, in my opinion I think they made it to make the next game seem way better by comparison and sell more copies.
