For the record, we started the past week's poll before Final Fantasy XIII-2 became official . We're clairvoyant and stuff.
At any rate, it's no surprise that while the majority appear to be interested in the sequel, most say Square-Enix had best make some changes. FFXIII has its fair share of detractors and even those who defend it on a routine basis (like yours truly), even those people acknowledge that S-E didn't deliver the series installment we all desired. In looking back, the only other true sequel in the franchise was FFX-2, which did boast a departure from the gameplay and structure found in FFX. Some liked it, some didn't. Personally, I was a big fan of the class system because it reminded me a lot of Final Fantasy Tactics , but others didn't like the female emphasis. Either way, FFXIII-2 is going to have to reclaim some lost fans and perhaps the best way to do that is to create a full-on, true-blue role-playing game . Of course, there's no guarantee; we might end up with something that feels more like Kingdom Hearts .
This week, we ask about the game that has been a good 13 years in the making: how psyched are you for Duke Nukem Forever ? With a release date supposedly solidified , we just have to wonder if enough gamers are still interested. Duke Nukem is quite the archaic name by today's standards; most people under the age of 20 haven't even heard of him. Therefore, we're thinking maybe it's too late… But then again, isn't the Duke's swagger timeless?
