Yeah, I sort of figured you meant more action/adventure oriented battles...but like I said, Phantasia still fits though not 3D. You get to run around on the battle screen kind of side-scroller-like...it was made by the Star Ocean guys after they split from Tri-Ace or w/e though, I believe (or something like that)...it even has an almost identical item creation system if I remember correctly...

Item creation was my favourite part in SO2.  I thought it was so neat that you could create counterfeit money and stuff.

Yeah, I especially loved how you can use a Magic Camera to copy items, but in SO:FD I only bothered with crafting skills until after I landed on Fargett. :( Now playing SO2:SE, my characters are so weak but their crafting skills are like really high. Before ending up on Energy Nede I had mastered all of the Super Specialty skills.

I miss sprites. course, I miss elemental crystals/orbs too, so I'm a geezer by most gaming standards, yelling at kids to get off my lawn.

That being said, graphics look nice.

Saw the preview vids. The characters are all kickass, but I can't help but think battles look really haphazard with characters and enemies all mixing together in the middle of the battlefield. I miss the nice, orderly formations of classic RPGs. But like Thought, I, too, am a gaming geezer perhaps out of touch with what the new generation wants to see.

They look good. Mostly what I expected them to be, but good anyway.

The demo was amazing. No clue what was said or who any new people were but still AMAZING! I always said, ever since FFIX the next one needs that type of fighting, kinda I want the Chrono Cross multiple levels of attacks in there too and similar to stamina but with time instead. All in all GREAT! I wish that Sazh wasn't a douche though. Everything about his movements makes me think DownSyndrome, SE is very racist considering Barret was just like Mr. T and this guy is a loser. Reddas doesn't count because he was like arab/persain black, you know not really black but dark, almost tan but a little darker than that.

I actually really like Sazh , he gives me this feeling I dunno why but I really liked him , especially his little chocobo <3.
Hopefully My Parents will let me have it when it eventually comes out .

The game looks very nice, but I don't really get what kind of a world this takes place in. It all looks very futuristic. Like a Star Wars meets Matrix. I really liked the world FF12 took place in because it was all very colorful and pleasant to the eye.  I don't think I'll ever get to play this anyway. I'm not getting a PS3 any time soon at all. I don't even have a PSX. Maybe I will get a PSX so I can play FF7 instead when this comes out, so I won't feel left out XD.

I can't decide whether I should move this to the Video Game Discussion thread or the Check this link out! thread...

Looks nice I guess...

The FF13 games are visual masterpieces--I haven't picked up an FF since 9, but it's cause I'm an old coot--but I don't really understand what I'm watching. The characters are neat...and weird...I recall hearing Sazh is modeled (at least in appearance) off Lionel Richie. Hopefully he'll get a great voice actor for the English release--he has potential to be a very neat character, albeit one with a few too many quirks.

13 Final Fantasies...things are getting hectic.
