Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Rolls Out

“Lightning never strikes twice”, say lucky folks who’ve never riled a crybaby wizard. I didn’t touch your bins, Ezwraine, and the reason I didn’t invite you round for the Halloween party is that you’re a pedantic whining killjoy, not because we fear your eldritch powers.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII [official site] arrived on PC this afternoon, up for £11.69 on Steam.

Lies, Lies, Lies: Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy Coming To PC

Just look at that guy.

If a joke’s worth telling, it’s worth grinding into dust. I don’t know whether I’m referring to Square Enix still using the name ‘Final Fantasy’ after dozens of games or to me dragging this hoary old jape out every year. “Wake up, joke!” I yell, kicking it in the side. “It’s time for me to tell you.” The joke mutters and closes its eyes tighter. “I will tell you and you will be hilarious just like you always are!” I insist.
