What the Story is About in Final Fantasy XIII Versus

Noctis and Stella fighting each other for the power of the crystal, are they enemies or lovers?, Noctis is the last survivor of his race, his role is to protect the crystal in the temple that he lives in and hand it to no one no matter what, Stella needs the power of the crystal because her kingdom needs power to survive in a time of war

Will stella abandon her kingdom for noctis? is it fair to betray your entire nation that trusted you for a friend or a lover? it seems both of them put their emotions a side when it comes to the "Crystal", Noctis will protect it no matter what and stella want it for her kingdom no matter what (That's why they are fighting emotionless in the trailer), yet there is a third person who wants the crystal too!

An army is useless against those who wield the power of the crystal, only Noctis and Stella can absorb the power of the crystal and that's why Stella nation sent stella to retrieve the crystal from Noctis Temple, will she able to do so? that's what we are going to learn in FF Versus 13 Story

Final Fantasy 13 Versus New from IGN and Video

Square took one of the thousand-or-so layers off the veil covering Final Fantasy Versus XIII at last week's 1st Production Department Premier event. Today, thanks to Japanese publication Dengeki PlayStation and a few trustful Japanese blogs that managed to get magazine's latest issue a couple of days in advance, we have new details, some good and some bad.

We'll get the bad out of the way first. There's no way this thing is coming out this year. Director Tetsuya Nomura is interviewed in the magazine and said that because they're trying to do a number of incredible things and the focus is on quality, they will need more time. He joked that because Duodecim Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy Type-0 and Final Fantasy XIII-2 are all due out this year, players should forget about Versus for the time being. 

That's going to be tough to do, as the details the magazine has on the game do have us excited. Most of the information can be discerned from the Premier trailer, which will be released in HD later this week. 

Versus has a party-based combat system where you switch between three character, Nomura confirmed. The game will have more playable characters than just the four who were shown in the trailer, he also said, although the number of such characters won't get too high. 

Each character has different abilities, both in weapon use and in the effect of their magic calls. Main character Noctis can use all the game's wide variety of weapons. One character, a blonde guy who appeared in the trailer, is skilled with guns, and he alone can be switched to a third person aiming mode for precise aim. 

The Versus development staff seem to be going for an eventful gameplay experience. Nomura highlighted the game's real time event system, where some wild things will happen as you're moving about. This was seen in the trailer as a giant behemoth beast attacked when Noctis approached a bridge, and as ships crashed to the ground around Noctis and crew. The game transitions to these events seamlessly, a system that's taking some time to develop, said Nomura. 

Other intriguing features mentioned by Nomura are a day/night cycle system for the game's world map (in the trailer, the world map parts are the nature areas towards the end), and the ability to ride cars, air ships and chocobos. You can also steal military use vehicles, although Noctis is such a good guy that he won't steal from common folk. Noctis can also kill off enemies to steal their mechs and other mechanized war machines. All these features can be seen in the trailer. 

The trailer also shows some vague story and character details if you can read the subtitles. In the Dengeki story, Nomura cleared up a few incorrect assumptions people have made regarding these areas. 

Towards the middle of the trailer, an old man in a throne, confirmed to be Noctis' father, says something along the lines of "You cannot be king." He's saying this not to Noctis, as many had assumed, but to someone whose identity Nomura would not disclose. 

More significantly, the end of the trailer shows an armored lady in an apparent confrontation with Noctis. Many assumed this was heroine Stella. But it's not. Nomura says the lady is a dragon knight and an enemy. 

Our next update on Final Fantasy Versus XIII will come at E3 or beyond, Nomura told Dengeki, so you're going to have to make the most of the new trailer when it hits later this week.

Grand Theft Auto 5,Character,Location,Vehicles and the trailer

Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer was releases recently and here's what I've noticed about what could be involved in this new exciting franchise is that the guy you're most likely going to be playing is and could very possibly be Tommy Vercetti i mean they certainly look alike and remembering that Grand Theft Auto Vice City took place in 1986,and Tommy Vercetti is maybe 25 years old.Now in Grand Theft Auto 5 it's in our present day which makes him maybe in his 50's so there's a good guess that this is the same Tommy in GTA 5
And another thing is that there will probably be animals,like dogs as was seen in the trailer.

Than if you played Grand Theft Auto you already know that you have the ability to swim and drive boats,and go to beaches,But how about Jet Ski's now ! seeing in this snapshot you'll maybe have a jet ski.

Also as seen in the tralier,Private jets,There's always been helicopters since San Andreas to Grand Theft Auto 4

You probably didn't noticed this but the graphics has greatly improved and i see a bike in here,So maybe you can go back to bike transportation,As well as i see trashcans something that was not in the previous Grand Theft Auto's just pointing out details and i see a fence which who knows will probably have more acrobatic movements in this game.

I'm hoping that you will possibly be able to play multiple characters in the game,And if i didn't look closely i looks like CJ from San Andreas is in the game (Black guy left to the picture) it would be very cool if they did bring back people form all the series like Lance,Niko,Tommy,Cj, everyone from all the GTA's in the crazy game but we'd have to wait to see what happens nest when Rockstar gives us another trailer.

What i do know about the vehicles in the game is that they will be fully customizable and if you look close enough here this is Venice Beach ! And looking at the car you can now drive convertibles,meaning they have a hood and with a press of the joystick you could convert the hood down.
