Well, well, well, the weekend that I finally discover the ending to the Final Fantasy XIII saga is finally here. It seems like an age since I managed to 100 percent (Platinum Trophy included) Final Fantasy XIII-2. Despite the pain that it’s mess of a story caused me, the actual gameplay was fun and the whole time travel gimmick was a stroke of genius.
I just hope Lightning Returns builds on the groundwork that XIII-2 laid. However, if Square ever try and pull a cliffhanger ending stunt again I will not be responsible for my actions. My poor controller never recovered from its date with the wall following XIII-2‘s original ending.
On a lighter note, I’ve also managed to get my hands on a copy of the “absolutely awesome, perfect, ultimate, super-duper, look at how realistic Lara’s face looks” edition of Tomb Raider, otherwise known as the Definitive Edition, so I’ll be spending a few hours with that if Lightning Returns fails to impress.
