It's the weekend of the big game! I can't wait! Amazon says they've already shipped it out!


I'm talking about Final Fantasy 13-2 of course. Why? What are you talking about?

(Of course the big question is how long it will take me to reach what i consider a good stopping point for Disgaea 4 so i can switch to FF13-2.)

(Also, how long is it supposed to take to get the pre-order bonus code for the Omega weapon thing? I ordered monday morning and still haven't gotten it yet =P)

I got my pre-order codes yesterday, but haven't got a ship notification. Dunno. I did opt for free shipping. Gonna be out of town this weekend anyway, so I won't start playing it 'til mid next week at the earliest.

I've got to admit that when I've seen an ad for the latest FF game (tacked on to a web video or two, I think), the main thought that occurred to me was "What's the point of wearing those bits of heavy plate armor when she's got so much bare skin exposed?" I've apparently been forever ruined by feminism. (Not that I'm complaining.)

Assuming you're talking about Lightning (with the feathers and such), it's actually a step back from her outfit in the previous game, which was shockingly near-practical. Well, maybe not practical, but at least moderately functional. Actually most of the XIII designs weren't too bad on that score. Like, Fang may be showing a decent amount of skin, but she's essentially wearing a sports bra with extra cloth draped over - something you could just about believably do acrobatic stunts in. Her boots are even low-heeled! Minor victories.

Of course, in XIII-2 Lightning in her silly armor seems to have been sucked into someplace possibly outside time, so for all I know it may be entirely metaphorical. XIII isn't an entry in the series where even I would try to rationalize the "plot", though.
