Saving a World That Hated Them by Robaato Saving a World That Hated Them by Robaato
2010 Print Number 3!

Final Fantasy XIII.

I picked 13 because even though so many people bashed it, I LOVED IT. The story wasn't done before, the premise was new, Vanille's squeeks and grunts, it didn't FEEL like a Final Fantasy game (and it's still a top-tier Square title), and the character development is one of the best I've seen- all while on the run being fugitives. Definitely will go down in history as a cult classic, I think.

I tried my best to capture each character's persona in my style. :nod:

Enjoy, folks.

IF you haven't played the game (or been bothered to play through the rest because of its departure from the series mechanics), watching this will make you wish you did: [link]

It's nice to hear that there are others that enjoy Final Fantasy XIII as much as I do. :D Great Job on getting the cast in those poses.

great artwork man. Yeah, I gotta agree with vanille's voice work. She sounds like she's moaning or something. And I really don't find her cutesy movements cute like rikku and yuffie were.

But I love the game. Too bad I have to finish it again since my first save file with almost max stats and items got corrupted after a sudden power outage. T_T

Wow, what a wonderful group shot! Great job rendering all the tiny details on their outfits with precision, and keeping the piece very fluid and cohesive at the same time :) Gorgeous tribute to an awesome game!

This was definitely my favorite, which is funny, because I was ADAMANT that it wouldn't be as good as VII, but Square had proved me wrong.

Agh, i wish i could play this game, i do not own a PS3 D: However I'm watching a playthrough and it looks so good ;A; I love Snow! He's so cool.

Ah, while I know very little about the plot so far, I love the characters. They remind me of another Square title, The World Ends With You, which is my favorite video game of all time. Especially Snow.. I think he reminds me of both Sho and Beat from TWEWY.

Oh Square, sometimes you make absolutely wonderful and fresh things, and no one appreciates it.
