    The Final Fantasy XIII-2 demo is officially out on ps3 and Xbox 360
    Play it now,
    I mean it. :yayps3:

    I personally cant wait for this game, theres a heck of alot more to do compared to XIII and will generally be alot more fun.
    I also just realised the second lightning in the logo (the left one) is caius.

    Main point here: Demo get it now ja?

    Typical. I move out of my old flat, therefore away from the 360, and they finally release something worth my time in demo form. There's no justice. Hopefully the demo for Resident Evil Revelations isn't far off, I can still play that :glare:

    I had cait sith (not the ff 7 one) on my party
    Its live event attack was just Y and X so it was easy. Sometimes i pressed before the icons even came up :yayps3:
    It was also helpful coz its a medic

    I have to admit, as i leveled it up on the crystalium with these items i found (LOADS OF THEM) It became awesome. Its live attack went up by alot and the it healed a decent amount more health than when i found it.
    Helpled with atlas too

    So how does it compare to FFXIII?
    I think I'm just going to do the story on FFXIII and skip the extras and side quests ready for this.
    There are like 10 games I want in the next 3 months and I don't want another back log like I've just nearly caught up with!

    Right, as far as i know and have seen,
    1. there are loads of side quests all over the world rather than being all just compressed into the archlyte steppe.
    2. There are loads of mini-games too, i've seem chocobo racing and its pritty good also the paradox puzzles where you have to run across dissapearing blocks is an ok mental excercise
    3. You can actually jump at free will! by pressing B/O. I hated how you could only jump on the spots in XIII
    4. You can change leader during battle. Will be very helpful later on in game
    5. The live action events are everywhere, changing terrain and even the whole story based on decisions you have to make all throughout the game. Theres 1 in the demo as i've seen
    6. The monster taming is also a great addition to spice up the fighting gameplay. The monsters also seem to have paradigm abilities like medic, ravager etc along with thier live action special moves, they can be upgraded like the main characters but with items you find, not exp it seems
    7. The crystalium has changed a bit. I cant really discribe it tbh
    8. You switch between gameplay between the super powered up Lightning and Noel, Serah and mog.
    9. I dont seem to see Sazh anywhere in this game, while hope and snow are definatly making appearences. BRING BACK SAZH!

    thats all i can think of right now :yayps3:

    You don't.
    You're only her for a very small portion of the game, which is the battle of Bahamut, etc.

    I didnt mean literally switch at any time, now that woulnt make sence, but yes i guess i phrased that wrong
    There are lightning scenes like the bahamut ones and ones against caius. Im guessing you use her to a degree of frequency as shes in the logo.
