--- Update From New Post Merge ---
My friend who played the game said yeah it WAS ending
then it didn't and it sincerely cliffhangers
everyone says it has no ending and I trust them
I stopped caring when I discovered developers that weren't Square. I respected Enix as a publisher at one time, and I can't really bad mouth them, or blame the merge for their undoing. It's really just Square losing their prime, and old developers.
There was a time were they seemed like they really loved making games. But those were simpler times. The ambition is probably still there, but there's just so many factors that come to mind with development and releasing a final product to the market.
This is just mere observation, but what I see with current FF titles is them being more movies while gameplay is just an add-on, or process to advance the movie. I can also say it's the result of lazy development, but when I look at their smaller titles that's released on handhelds, I can't help but think otherwise. They are obviously cutting back, which is shame. Not that I mind. There's developers I follow that are beyond Square's old and current prime anyway.
Hey guys XIII as a whole sucks ass let's talk about games that do have endings.
--- Update From New Post Merge ---
It says in this article that the story isn't finished, and will be continued in DLC. That means it does not have an ending. That should be the end of this argument.
I decided I didn't care about FF after 12. I was losing interest after I traded in 10 (something unthinkable to me for previous games ) and skipped x-2 after playing like an hour of it. Didn't give a damn about 11 and 12 just wasn't what I thought (despite being a good game... it let me down. Didn't even finish it).
13 was the same case.. and by the time 13-2 was announced, I had realized it wasn't so much the quality or my expectations, but the fact that I just didn't really like the JRPG genre anymore. It all just feels the same to me.
just kinda started FFXIII weeks ago and right now the Battle Paradigim system is a little annoying.. so far the game isnt too bad in terms of gameplay and battle mode..but the gil systems isnt good due to little gil increases at a time
Also bought Origins.. I like it but whats the difference between the PSP/GBA/PSX versions?

Wonder what they got planned.......FFVXIII media blowout?
I know I said I'd get back to you all once I finish the game, but since I love dolling out the FFIX hate, I'd just like to say Fuck the Hippaul Racing minigame! I mean, I hate button-mashing minigames as it is, but this, just........fucking THIS! Actually it's not even just a button-masher, it's one of those games where you have to alternate pressing two buttons!
So apparently you have to get to level 80 if you want to get the rare, one-time-only key item. I stopped at level 50 and I thought even that was ludicrous. And yes, I know it's just a sidequest and it doesn't need to be done, but the programmers still put in there with the expectation that you would discover it and play it if you so choose, and you would enjoy it. Yeah, nothing says enjoyment like alternately mashing buttons as fast as you can 64 times in a row, and that's not even counting the countless dozens of other times that you'll inevitably fail at it.
Oh, and did I mention this even a game that you can try and then come back to later in that game. Nope, there's only a very small window in the game in which you can play, so if you want to get that one-time-only rare item, be prepared for the delightful and rewarding experience of alternately mashing buttons for what will most likely be several hours, without being able to do anything else, least of all proceeding with the game!
And no, this is of course not the first time Squeenix has pulled this shit with their minigames and sidequests. Hey guys, here's an idea, try making a minigame that's challenging, but fun. Don't put in the games that came out of Satan's toychest. What the FUCK were they thinking?!
I dunno. Maybe I just suck at button-mashers (sorry, "alternate" button-mashers).
Other than that, this game just keeps getting better and better (and I mean that sincerely).
