    Hmm. My understanding was that she actually finished her voice work months and months ago, and she seemed excited for it previously. Strange, I wonder what's up.


    EDIT: Ahhhh, it's a joke. It looks like she was having a war of Boring Game Titles with some of her followers. She also posted Slack Man (Probably Pac Man) and Gears of Snore (Gears of War). She clarifies a little later by saying she's super jealous Lightning Returns comes out in 6 days in Japan.

    That's...actually the name of the fourth FFXIII game.

    Lightning gets called to go join the other FF protagonists once again in a new Dissidia mobile game, and is called back to her world/universe to find nothing. Everything's dead and extinct, because she's killed every species of endangered wildlife, everyone else has probably gone to another world or something, and there's not a single God left worth fighting against.

    It'll be the Dear Esther of Lightning games.

    Holy mother of CRAP this OST is good~
    LR-news on Tumblr released the OST and since I already bought it, I'm fine with downloading it.
    Literally, best soundtrack in the series, IMO.

    I'm pretty much dying in anticipation for this. I'm gonna let the album sink in without any spoilers before the game hits in February, enabling the game to have full impact when I play it, and then enjoy the depth of the songs indefinitely into the future. I love all three of these composers, can't wait to see what they do next.

    Yeah, if you don't want spoilers, it's best to avoid the second-fourth discs. The first disc is alright, though, I think.

    I hope the OST is better than XIII-2's, I thought it was the weakest part of the game after the story.

    Is the game out? (For Japan). I just watched the launch trailer, it was honestly dreadful. Maybe the final product is better. I hope.

    Ignoring the content for a moment, the editing work of that trailer is stunning, I'll have to say. It couldn't have been anything other than arduous to put together, so massive props to the person(s) responsible for that.

    But there's nothing much I can praise about the rest of it. For a launch trailer, I suppose it gets the job done, despite the fact that it's staggeringly woeful compared to the FFXII and FFXIII launch trailers. The music does nothing for me, coming off as sounding like stock music from a free public domain site.

    The
    Lightning and Serah
    bit is downright bizarre, hands down. It's obvious what they were trying to show and convey in those few seconds, but it looks oddly creepy.

    In all seriousness, I thought it was awful; and a lot more people thought that too. Previous trailer were much better.

    Still can't wait for the game to come out in North America. I don't care how predictable the story seems to be, it looks fun enough to own to me. Besides, even if we think it's predictable, the story might still not be what we think.

    Really? Kind of been the opposite on my side. I see a lot of positive comments about it, but then again I'm in the dreaded FFXIII fanbase, soo... xD

    The Launch trailer looks like it was made to portray and anime opening kind of thing.

    So I don't know if western audiences would even like it unless they like shounen-esque anime openings.

    The models made me laugh a bit---specifically the part where Lightning is sort of twisted up to show the title and when Serah is flying through the Crux, her leg is all wat.

    Lumina now disturbs me because of this video, though. She looks much more childlike in motion, now.

    So for any interested parties, the alleged FINAL scene of Lightning Returns is:

    WARNING: Spoiler (duh)

    Note: It's a link hidden in the spoiler tabs.

    http://25.media.tumblr.com/800388dff0a59d05d08b5741050e37d3/tumblr_mwn4ujoUC91qhmu9mo1_1280.png

    What immediately popped into my mind when I saw this?

    Modern world that's sort of reality-like. Lightning in FFXV. It sounds scarily plausible now. Maybe. Who knows. Haha. I just want to watch the world burn, don't I?
