Thread: The Cover Legitimately Makes Me Mad

    Default The Cover Legitimately Makes Me Mad

    http://www.siliconera.com/2012/01/08...ferent-covers/

    If I was being super duper beyond generous, I would say Lightning is in 1% of XIII-2. In all reality, she's even less significant than that.

    ONE cover out of seven has Serah on it. Serah, an actual main character of the game.

    ZERO covers have Noel on them, the other main character of the game.

    Could the "PLEASE THINK LIGHTNING IS COOL" be any more blatant? Toriyama shoving his waifu on all of us is nothing new I know but I like XIII-2 and I want the main characters of the game to get the attention they deserve.

    It is pretty lame that they put someone on the cover making you think she's going to be the main character, only to find out she's in very little parts of it. Reminds me of when they put Rhino to the cover of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Like, GTFO, you're hardly in it!

    I was really mad when I didn't get to play as a crystal in FFIX.

    Cloud is on the cover of FFVII
    Squall, Seifer and Rinoa for FFVIII
    FFIX party for FFIX
    Tidus and Yuna in X
    YRP in X-2
    Full XII party on FFXII...I think, I forget for certain

    See a a pttern? It's almost like putting a character on the cover of a game is advertisement... like "you should get this game to be this character!" or something. Crazy, I know but just a hunch.

    Not on the japanese or european covers. Not for any of those games.

    shauna beat me to it!

    FFX has yuna and sin. Why can't I play as Sin?
    everything is wrapped in gray

    ...weren't Squall and Rinoa in Final Fantasy VIII?

    The logo ie. the Japanese cover is literally just them and the game title.

    Also the X-2 logo is YRP.


    And did I mention Lightning is also on the cover of the XIII-2 soundtrack?

    FF7 had meteor. FFIX had a crystal. FFXII had one of the judges. FFXIII had Cocoon (maybe I don't really know).

    EU and JP don't always have the main characters.

    Magitech Armour on FFVI (okay Terra is there too, but you can hardly see her). I think it's Golbez on the DS remake of FFIV. The Emperor on FFII. Looking more recently, FFXV is definitely not Noctis.

    Also it turns out that the FFXIII cover is Cocoon, but it also features Fang and Vanille apparently. Also not MCs.
