Review: Overall this game looks like it will be amazing. A lot of people tend to be complaining that it’s getting a dual release on Xbox and ps3. I’m some what excited for it though seeing as I’ll be buying another Xbox in for the October for release of Forza 3. i shouldn’t have sold my old one last year :(. also square-enix hinted at the fact that since the FF(final fantasy) has always originally been exclusive to Playstation, they might do something to keep their fans happy. maybe Japanese audio with English subtitles? who knows… anyways so far this game looks and sounds amazing! right now there’s a demo of the Japanese version that can be purchased if you buy the new Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children blu-ray disc. I’ll post a link to a current update on FFXIII on IGN’s website
Plot: The plot focuses on the fal’Cie beings created from the crystals residing inside them. The people marked by the fal’Cie for a greater purpose are named the l’Cie. But being a l’Cie has a price; for should they die before fulfilling their Focus, they will turn into monsters called "Cie CorpsesSome thirteen centuries ago, a fal’Cie constructed a paradise for humanity: The shell-like city of Cocoon floating high above the surface of the world now known as Pulse, both maintained by their own fal’Cie. Cocoon’s fal’Cie created life forms and machines for its inhabitants to use, and humanity flourished. Over time, the people of Cocoon began to fear for the safety of their world, and were worried that it would be cast down from the sky into the hell that they see Pulse to be.
In present day, the wilderness of Pulse has strange effects on people, and the theocratic Cocoon Sanctum quarantines and exiles anyone who has been influenced by Pulse from the city with the help of its mighty army, PSICOM. However, as Snow leads Team Nora in a vain attempt to stop the purging, the mysterious Lightning fights her way past PSICOM soldiers to find Pulse’s fal’Cie with the aid of Sazh. But by a chain of events, these three along with two of the Purgees, Vanille and Hope, are chosen by the fal’Cie of Pulse against their will to become l’Cie among others, and with that become enemies of humanity that would bring about the downfall of Cocoon.
