I'm rather fond of VII, VIII, X, X-2, and XIII mostly because of the gameplay, music, character development and because they're only a few of the FF games I've played. I would like to try playing more of them
That ending... What the hell just happened? I thought this was Final Fantasy, not Shin Megami Tensei.
Hopefully it's not the true ending, though a lot of people are claiming that it is.
I seriously doubt what you are saying. Where do you even get all this news from anyways?
I don't know where the heck people are getting the idea that that's the true ending from.
They specifically stated the ending you get would be based on how much of the game you explore and complete, and everyone who saw that ending only had at most a fourth of the 160 fragments you get from exploring the various time periods (Which are used to unlock new areas and time periods, which almost certainly play a part in keeping the so-called "true ending" from happening). Why would they show you the true ending for rushing through the game?
Also, it's most likely that the "To be continued" isn't hinting at another sequel, but is simply telling you to keep playing the game to get a different ending.

So far there have been two endings unlocked by people. One of them has no Lightning at all, and another one features Lightning. Besides that, the exact same events take place.
There's the New Game +, though, so maybe those endings will be different.
I don't think new game + has anything to do with it, as both of the players who I saw finish the game and get the bad ending still had over ten areas/time periods to explore, some of which were located in very unusual parts of the timeline Spoiler:- spoiler:
On a separate subject, the game is definitely a day one purchase for me. It fixes pretty much everything that bugged me about XIII, and I really look forward to playing around with the monster taming system.

FFVII i was originally taken aback by the fact that it had bad graphics but i still regret not getting everything from it, i played it and when i got over the graphics loved every minute of it
The eight Paradox endings are out now. And lo and behold, Eternal Rest is the canon ending and a sequel to XIII-2 is basically confirmed. The person streaming XIII-2 has two more nodes to unlock before the "true ending" theory is debunked.
I'm glad the developers of the game decided to go Pokemon on us and require the acquisition of every single monster in the game for 100% completion.
Though all those people in a rush to see if there's a true ending or not certainly aren't.
Does XIII-2 have the same battle system as the first one? I don't wanna spoil much by looking at videos.
The main additions are the blood damage (Damage to your max HP that adds a somewhat constant sense of urgency to battles, though it's healable through death, items, or monster abilities), and the ability to recruit practically all of the enemies (Excluding humans and cieth) from XIII for use as party members on top of dozens of new ones, each of which has their own feral link/ synchro drive attack to use (Essentially a limit break).
The crystarium system was also changed to having a more traditional level system for each role, and is straightforward, rather then having branching paths. There's also no limit on how high you can get each role (Outside of reaching the level cap of 99), meaning you can just grind now if a boss is too tough to beat.
XIII-2 does have a secret ending after all! It's about a minute long and it basically explains Caius' motives. It takes place during Eternal Rest, so that ending is 100% canon.
I don't come here at all but I have to say that the "Crazy Chocobo" track from XIII-2's soundtrack is terrible as is most of the soundtrack. I feel it's a definite step down from XIII's soundtrack which I found to be okay in general.

Hi, I'm part of the staff on Pokemon Showdown!, if you have any questions or need any help, VM or PM me.
Outside of the few out of place rap and metal songs, I'd say the soundtrack is as good, if not better then XIII, and I personally loved XIII's soundtrack.
Many of the songs are far better when you're actually playing the game. I especially like The Last Travel. It's a nice song, but it has even more of an impact when it plays as Spoiler:- Story spoiler:

The orchestrated pieces are some of the best in the series. The heavy metal and rap aren't that great on their own, but they do add to the atmosphere a bit.
