Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII  



Watch a nice Lightning Returns chocobo quest playthrough


12:30 PM on 10.14.2013



I saw that Square Enix had shared a video of producer Yuji Abe's playthrough of a certain chocobo quest in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Hmm, I thought. Then I saw a major games website run a new hands-on preview of an open-world section of Lightning Returns. Double hmm.

I looked at both.

Bitch, I saw this at Tokyo Game Show a month ago

Whatever. If you missed my preview, the Wildlands of Nova Chrysalia are lovely, and Abe's nice, long look at live gameplay does a good job of showing just how open this area is. You'll get a good look at the battle system, world, enemies, and even a sub-boss.

Oh, and you get to see Lightning all Dragooned out, with her awesome Lancer attack. At about the 6:00, during a sub-boss battle, mark you'll see the results of character customization as well as some new looks for Lightning. 

And it's in English, which is nice (and would have been easier than my Japanese playthrough!).

My preview goes a bit farther than this video did, so if you want to know what's up with the white chocobo, check it out.

We could see more Final Fantasy games on PC in the future

Opinion: Lightning Returns is by far the best 'XIII' game

I wasn't a fan of Final Fantasy XIII. I felt like in many ways it was a step back for the franchise, and the cast wasn't nearly as charming as Square Enix thought it was. But with XIII-2, I partially warmed up to the series, ...more

Remember: Lightning Returns is kind of an action game

What might get lost amidst talk of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII's whacked out story and amazing dress up system is that you can fight monsters. Though you would know that if you downloaded the demo. If you haven't, ...more

A bunch of skeletons explode in the first 20 minutes of Hellraid

Techland's decision to delay Hellraid and move it to PS4, Xbox One, and PC seems to be paying off. That said, you may want to skip the first half of this 20-minute video -- it begins with the first level, which is slow to ge...more
