Jim Sterling and Dale North checked out Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII while at PAX. Well, Dale did, Jim slept in. But it's okay, he didn't really miss much as Dale described. The only good thing we can expect out of the new Final Fantasy is that the battle system is much improved.
As for the story, it's just as convoluted as ever. Plus, Lightning herself still has no personality. If anything, she does a stupid pose at the end of every battle.
