    It's not as bad as the graphic bug. That's just stupid KI nothing new to FF.
    Sadly this is common in most of the newest games. lazy engine disgners are lazy.

    You know what's worse than FFXIII bashing? The readers who bash them. C'mon, let Artefact post whatever he likes.

    After all, bugs in over-hyped games make big news, it's talked about in 2ch often. I think this site is great in delivering what's currently hot among the Japanese internet community. If you don't like it, then make like a tree and get out of here. I mean, leave.

    people complain about linearity,
    then they put in a loop and people complain again.
    what do they have to do to satisfy you? :p

    They should totally give the lead character a ridiculously cheesy name, then all will be good.

    I'm getting tired of FF bug reporting and bashing, I only like some of the FF spin-offs but none of the main series, but even bashing the series is getting really old.

    I wasn't aware that Sankaku was bug FFXIII bug report page.

    Sankaku has been the FFXIII bashing page lately. And most of the bashing has been the same:

    1) The game is linear! (By the way, who cares?)
    2) There are bugs! (All games have them. And these are very minor ones.)

    4-5 sceptical articles on the biggest RPG of recent memory is too much?

    We published more articles going on about the release dates, platform releases and, most importantly, Serah's schoolgirl outfit... I think this is far from unbalanced coverage.

    I recently tried to bug Suare-Enix about not including japanese voice dialogue on the game, surprisingly enough they replied (I used the hiring email cause I couldn't find any other support email to voice opinions)here's the transcript:

    You guys really need to set up polls amongst gamers to take decisions. A LOT of gamers here in America would like to keep the japanese dialogue on Final Fantasy XIII, you have to at least make it available on the PS network, english dubs, specially on games, SUCK, there's just no way to get it right, there's big consensus around this issue.

    Reply:

    Thank you for contacting the SQUARE ENIX Support Center,

    Thank you for taking the time to write to us.

    We do appreciate your suggestion toward our future titles. Although I cannot guarantee it being implemented in future projects, it will be forwarded to my superiors. I thank you for you contacting us today.

    We hope this information has been of assistance.

    I was mainly trying to bug them so I didn't put any particular attention or care to the wording.

    I got the reply from this address support@square-enix-usa.com should you want to voice your opinion on the subject...

    1. It's an automated response. I'm sure they get tons of email, so an automated response is to be expected.

    2. "Big consensus"? I don't know about that. While I agree that the dubs kind of suck, I don't think there is a large outcry to keep the original dialogue. If anything, the cry is to simply hire better voice actors for the English version.

    Translation of Square's response: Thanks, we don't care. Please go away.

    Also, I don't think the opinions of a few japanophiles qualify as a "consensus".

    THIS GAMES SUX!!!!!

    Bugs of games like Fallout 3 and Oblivion never documented like this, only in troubleshooting, bug reports, and patch fixes...

    Who wants to play Final Fantasy XIII other than such HYPE? LAME!!!

    I don't see the point of posting the bugs in the Japanese version of FF13, since they will probably be fixed in the US and Europe editions anyway.

    "...Meanwhile, Lightning's indecision whether sommersaulting or backsaulting would make her look cooler, has cost the team extra unnecessary gaming hours, Excalipoor and a chance to obtain the secret mizugi l*li character which was only unlockable after defeating the superboss Beta SquallVaanTidus under 9000 hours of gametime."

    Endless Thirteen, anyone?

    If that character was supposed to be following her, then it was trying to make a path to the player. NPC's take the shortest available route, this one couldn't round off the numbers for which one.

    No, He rolled a perfect 20, but he failed just cause there was a bug in the die. Sorry.

    The fail in this bug is not the endlessness of the jumps, it's the way she jumps... it looks like she's flying not jumping

    Anyway, a lolbug is awesome

    DeathCrunch, you can get a lot of helpful information from online resources, as well as magazines, people, reviews, etc.
    And you can't deny that they provide good insight into what a game is to a specific preference, but...
    You never know if you'll like it until you've played it with an open mind.
    Just because something is linear or has a few bugs doesn't mean it's no good.
    (BTW, what happened to the classic games that had lots and lots of bugs, but no one cared? If it doesn't hinder your gameplay, it's not really that significant)

    I think backflipping for eternity over a cliff would count as hindering gameplay...

    It's an NPC (basically all other characters follow the leader) thats doing the jumping, so you can just ignore it and move on.

    Well we *could* get the Japanese dubs if SE just bothered to do it. Unfortunately, as far as I know, it doesn't look like we're getting them.

    This is pathetic. it seems like "Look for a bug and complain!".. there are tons of games that has worst bugs than this jumping thing, specially western rpg.

    What are you trying to say with the quotes?

    Is it something about the company or something about yourself?
