The problem is, that information is kind of crutial to following the plot to begin with. I don't like to play this card very often, but that's bad game design. If you're going to offer extra info like that to expand the plot, do it like Peace Walker, where:
1.) The information is easily digestible. Instead of reading boring and poorly written prose, give it to us in a more entertaining format like an audio log (like in Bioshock), or like in Peace Walker with recordings of mission debriefing/conversations with other characters.
2.) Don't leave crucial information about who is what out of the main story. Those those kinds of things shouldn't be key to following or explaining the plot's main thrust.
It is severely less substansial. Here's what happens:darfox8 wrote:As I said I just got to Gran Pulse and I understand whats going on in the story but I'm not sure why. I think it was because I was following this game for so long.
I'm still skeptical of this game not having a story. I mean the Hope arc was a story(the stuff with his mom and then his dad), the reveal right before you get to Gran Pulse was story(even though it's kinda random). So unless the stuff that happens next is actually less substantial of what has come before then I can't see this game missing a story.
I still enjoyed it on that level as well, and is actually the first FF game in a long time that I've beaten without giving up on, borrowing a save file, or using cheat codes. I think that says something for the game. I enjoyed the combat and the A/V experience as well.darfox8 wrote:Bummer, I still enjoying the game play and the general audio-visual-experience so I plan of finishing it, but that almost sounds like an anti-FF game or something.

People that had their hearts broken by how godawful FFXIII turned out are going to buy this one anyways because it still says Final Fantasy on the cover.

I LOVE this kind of post and Square Enix seems to be a magnet for them. Explain to me please, Kevin how a game with virtually nothing known about it "looks like it could be good." What about it looks good to you so far?
