Also, Lightning, why are you wearing your sunglasses at night you're so embarrassing this is why I never take you anywhere ugh. Also, why is there red lightning? Also, why are there catgirl Mardi Gras strippers at this colorful, flashing end of the world rave? Also, why did the party get broken up by Egyptian gods?
What a weird f**king game. Somehow I think that even if I had finished Final Fantasy XIII-2, I'd still have little idea what is going on (hundreds of years after the last game, Lightning returns to save people's souls before the world ends in 13 days, lol). Still, I've expressed a legitimate interest in Lightning Returns before and I'm sticking to that hopefulness, overly optimistic or not. I will enjoy the outfits, at least.
