    On the Amazon Deals page, I stumbled across this deal where you can buy FFXIII-2 for the PS3 or 360 and get a copy of XIII for free. The offer expires on March 31, so I figured it warranted a post.

    For you lazy people who haven't played XIII yet, it's a pretty good deal. ...

    SquareEnix may have given us something pretty to look at with Serah's "beachwear" outfit, but sometimes you just need to see a girl with a nice pair of big, round eyeglasses. That's right, on March 13th you'll be able to add Jihl Nabaat to your party for just the price of three tacos! Or six tacos, depending on where you get your tacos.


    You can also get new weapons for 99 cents each: a Catastrophe Blade and Muramasa for Noel, along with a Seraphic Wing and Genji Bow for Serah. You can see pictures of those here.

    Now when we asked our members what DLC they most wanted to see, just about everyone cried out for more story! Apparently those who want Serah in a Pikachu suit are in the minority, but that's fine, because SquareEnix has announced that they'll be releasing the "Lightning's Story: Requiem of the Goddess" DLC in mid-May. Little is known about the content other than what we can deduce from the title, nor has a price been announced, but there it is--more story. And more Lightning, ...

    He just can't resist a cameo appearance, can he? Everyone's favourite multiple armed madman is back, with Gilgamesh set to appear in yet more Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC. He is due to appear in the Colosseum as a fightable opponent, and apparently can even join Serah and Noel in the party once defeated if a crystal is obtained.

    No word as yet as to whether that song will be featured in the DLC, but just to get you in the mood:



    There are also rumours that someone from FFVI is going to be added as a fightable villain too. Ultros would definitely be my preference - can you imagine a tag team of him and Gilgamesh? Kefka is another name being thrown about but I just can't see it myself. I wouldn't say no to Chupon showing up and sneezing me away again though. Fungah! ...

    This week saw the release of two brand new pieces of Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC in the form of an outfit each for Serah and Noel.



    With all the beaches the team visit in XIII-2, Square decided Serah was a little overdressed for the occasion and decked her out in this Beachwear outfit. That or they know their target audience all too well. I think she's been spending too much time with the Gullwings from FFX-2 personally.



    This is Noel in his Spacetime Guardian outfit. I don't know if I'd be particularly impressed if a young man dressed like that showed up at my house to pick up my daughter but there we are. Also maybe it's just me, but I'm getting some Kingdom Hearts Riku vibes from the ensemble.

    These babies can be yours for 240 Microsoft Points each, or else $2.99/1.59/1.99 each.

    Following on from that, next week will see the release of Sazh: Heads or Tails?



    It will star everyone's favourite XIII character Sazh in a new story questline that will run parallel to the events in XIII-2. ...

    As soon as it was revealed that Final Fantasy XIII-2 would herald the return of chocobo racing, people got a lot more excited for the game. People love that fluff, myself included. Now, perhaps you've tried to run a few races. Maybe you've done well for yourself, maybe not. Either way you might be looking to improve, and, if that's the case, Reddit user Kheten's method seems pretty solid.

    You'll be able to do this once you can get the silver chocobo out of the big projection of Cocoon in Academia 4XX. This requires Advanced Mog Throw.

    Items Needed:
    • 34x Potent Orb Buccaboo, Buccaboo Ace (30%)
    • 46x Potent Essence Hedge Frog (15%), Mud Frog (15%), Swampmonk (20%), Caterchipillar (5%)
    • 23x Potent Crystals Microchu (30%)


    Monsters Needed:

    • Pulse Gladiator (Archylte Steppe - Cloudy)
    • Cactuar (Archylte Steppe - Sunny, rare)
    • Microchu (Western Archylte Steppe - Rainy, Sunny)


    Method:

    Get your Silver Chocobo to max level.
    1. Infuse the Silver Chocobo with the Pulse Gladiator at level one.

    Del Murder chose a name out of what I'm sure was a very suave hat, and that name was DMKA, one of our long-time and sometimes even well-liked members! Congratulations DMKA!

    During the contest, we encouraged people to submit their favorite Final Fantasy game in the form of haiku, which lead to a lot of brilliant entries. It also lead to a lot of people revealing that they either don't know what a haiku is or they have no idea how to count syllables. Regardless, here are my top ten favorites!






    The eighth entry's best
    Nostalgia is the reason
    Zell chokes on hot dogs

    -Scotty_ffgamer

    VI; the masterpiece
    Kefka destroyed the world, but
    the strong cast saved it.

    -Del Murder

    Oh no, more goblins
    Sword, Esper, or Fire2?
    I'll use my chainsaw.

    -Tavaryn

    iv had terrorists
    it had genocide also
    a sweet crystal theme

    Genius Lynx

    It's the first I've played,
    it fills me with nostalgia
    whenever I play.

    -Karifean (FFVII)

    A Real Love Story
    In Final Fantasy VIII.
    Left Its Mark On Me

    -Caviarmy

    The girl in all green
    Seemed very odd at the time
    She's still my hero

    -ShlupQuack

    F F V I I
    The one thing I didn't like
    Got killed on disc one

    -Loony BoB

    My Favorite Game...
    To Fight Against the Fal'Cie..
    Lightning and Serah.

    -Dallatar Lyonsbane

    Time repeats, mocking,
    friendship forged and twisted love
    giving no closure.

    -Silace (FFVIII)

    In addition, Renmiri and krissy submitted poetry that are too lovely not to mention.

    Sins of the Father, gone
    Son's tears, finding love and losing it

    On October, 21 I had the opportunity to visit Square-Enix at their offices in Los Angeles and got a sneak peek at Final Fantasy XIII-2. Below is my review from playing the first three hours of the game. It should go without saying that this only reflects my opinion. If you want to read a general overview of the event you can go here, and if you want to read a factual rundown of what we learned about FFXIII-2, check it out here. In general I had a great time at the event and enjoyed playing FFXIII-2. I cannot say enough how nice the Square-Enix NA staff was and how well they treated us. They were simply awesome. Even if this game turned out to be a steaming pile of crap I would still have enjoyed myself due to how friendly and professional they were to us. Fortunately it was not a steaming pile of crap.

    Bear in mind that I only got to play the first three hours of the game, and my opinion will only be based on that time period. As we all know, many of the more fun features in these types of games often don't get unlocked until much later. For example, after playing Final Fantasy XIII for three hours you probably wouldn't even have met your full party ...

    Back on October 21, Eyes on Final Fantasy got to visit Square Enix at their North America offices for a Final Fantasy XIII-2 fan event. We (ShlupQuack and myself) hung out with their PR team, got to play a 3-hour demo of FFXIII-2 (which was basically the first three hours of the game), and even met FFXIII and FFXIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase and art director Isamu Kamikokuryo. It was loads of fun!

    After taking diligent notes through three hours of gameplay and a Q&A session with Kitase-san and Kamikokuryo-san, we've got quite a list of Final Fantasy Facts to get you all warm and ready to once again save the citizens of Gran Pulse. The Story section will give you a quick run down of what happens from the prologue through the end of chapter two, but the other sections are spoiler free (they are in spoiler tags for organizational purposes). Enjoy!

    General Gameplay
    • There is a jump button! Feel free to jump around freely like I did!
    • Square Enix is making a real effort to step up the interactivity in this game, as evidenced by the frequency of "Cinematic Actions." Basically, a cut scene will often have a "LIVE" icon in the upper left-hand corner, which

    My complete lack of self-control lead me to hint about this a couple of times, but last month Eyes on Final Fantasy was invited to head over to Square Enix's US office to preview Final Fantasy XIII-2. Other than the occasional comment intended to titillate, we were banned from speaking of the event... until now!

    We decided that the two sexiest staff members should go, so, despite Psychotics insistence that it was Opposite Day, Del Murder and I went. They put us up in a swanky city-folk hotel, and, to keep this part of the story short, we jumped on the bed, ate candy, and made rainbows. Not sexually. Necronopticous and Marshall Banana actually work right by the Square Enix building, so they picked us up for tacos and strawberry-tasting milkstuffs. I enjoyed an octopus tostada.

    The next day, after having more candy for breakfast, we brought our asses and our coffee house beverages down the the lobby, where the rest of our Final Fantasy nerd group was far too easy to spot. I think there were representatives for... six other sites there. Some of them had stayed up way too late because they had never seen an ocean before; it was cute.
