...then don't write a review? I drank my can of potion from Dissidia, so if I can win another one I might actually keep it around.

The fact that potions taste like chewed up sweettarts mixed with Red Bull will probably help out a bunch as well.

Maybe ill do a review. Can i do FFX? I like FFX.

If you want to enter, like the contest says, any RPG is A-O-K.

If you send me a FFXIII copy, i can do a review of it.

Sweet. Send me $120 and I'll send you the game.

I'm assuming you mean "prizes."
I agree it's pretty much only appealing to Final Fantasy fans. I'm sorry if you're not one. Better luck next contest.

This thread is such a phenomenal disappointment. To ensure it's not a complete waste, I shall answer the questions posed to Drakes_Fortune for him, as I feel he would.

-What are your complete thoughts on the Final Fantasy XIII review?
It was terrible and poorly written and in no way constitutes what I feel is a "proper review." Also pretend I misspelled 'terrible,' 'written,' 'constitutes,' and 'review,' as I feel every statement I make regarding the quality of any writing needs to be expressed at a third grade reading level.

-Why do you feel that way?
I'm bitter and angry at anyone who disagrees with my opinions, which I believe to be undeniable facts.

-What do you feel should be different in it?
It needs to be shorter. A lot shorter. I couldn't get past the first sentence! I feel that it should only state that Final Fantasy XIII is the greatest game ever made, even though I have never played it and have only seen three trailers (none of which depicted any game play or story elements) since its announcement back at E3 2006.

-Do you feel that "Very Good" is too high or too low of a review score?
Far, FAR too low. "Very Good"? Is that the standard of quality you think Square-Enix adheres to? Simply "Very Good"? No, no, every game they make deserves at LEAST "Amazingly Fantastic" or higher, going through "Super Legendary" and all the way to "Like Sex With a Harem of European Supermodels in Electronic Form."

-Have you played Final Fantasy XIII?
No I have not, as was previously mentioned, though I still feel comfortable in saying that it is the greatest game of this or any other generation.

-Out of ten, what number represents the "Average" RPG to you?
9. Honestly, if it's below that, I buy every single copy from every store in a 200 mile radius and burn them all in a massive bonfire. That way, nobody I know has to suffer through such a mediocre offering.

Fuck. I'm a whore for Final Fantasy & prizes. I still got a Solice's can of Potion (which actually tastes like seaweed & Red Bull) that I cleaned out in my game room. I might have to dust off "Rogue Galaxy" and try my luck.

So I've been trying to wrap up all the extra quests, and since it's trendy on the internet nowadays, I think I'll write up an article about the game, and then put it to rest for good in preparation for whatever I do next.

Have I mentioned that I enjoyed the monster designs in this game? I think I praised the bomb redesign a few pages back. But it must be said:
Kochus are the best new monster in the game and series, hands down. At least they're new to my knowledge--did they show up in XI?
Anyways, in Japanese "O-" can mean big, and "Ko-" can mean small. So take series staple Ochu, and make a baby version...voila! Kochu.

And they are so cute. Face-meltingly cute. Most people probably won't agree. I'm probably strange. But I don't care. Every time they mob me and make their cute little squeals and waggle their koi-like mouths I get the stupidest grin on my face. And then they're kind of top heavy with tiny legs, so they overbalance when you hit them. Awwww. I've been capping stuff so I'll get a picture or video of them soon.

Good thing that the best post-game grinding spot is, in fact, the Ochu-Kochu fight. I think I would have gotten sick of any other monster by now.

I've been grinding a lot and the worst is over. Just the 60,000 CP spots left on every character's third main job and I should be sufficiently strong enough to tackle anything. There are still the other jobs, but the stat boosts they offer are minimal by comparison.

Sad

You know how sad it is when you're entertained by something, and you're waiting for the big finish, and you register on a forum to post about it and then you're done registering and there's no climax?

Well, it's this sad:

Sad

Now, like, what's the point of even posting here? I don't know. It's just to say: Fuck you Drake's Fortune.

The point of posting here? We're good people. Sorta. Better than Drake's Fortune, anyhow.

I gotta say that's a serious drag that Drake signed up and came over here but then put his tail between his legs and ran away. We were even being nice!

What a sad sack that kid must be :/

So Solice and I got bored at work and decided to troll the hell out of the FF XIII board on Gamespot/faqs. In fact, we're going beyond trolling, it'll now be known as "Burns Omni-netting."

Solice went big time by posting the end of the game as a topic name then adding "*spoiler*" after.

They already took down Solice's post about the end of the game. Now we're just putting mostly goofy stuff on he PS3 version's board.

Wikipedia mentions Janelle's review in the "Reception" section of the FFXIII article.

"The game received a final rating of "Very Good." (7/10)"

Already gone. I can't decide if it was PR goons, or Drakes Fortune.
