You can agree with them or you can disagree with them, but I feel I need to get this off my chest. This has been stirring for a very long time following hints earlier in…

Discussion: The calm before the storm - Lightning's journey and the third entry to the Final Fantasy XIII saga

Perhaps the worst kept secret looming at the back of the minds of Final Fantasy fans is the continuation of Final Fantasy…
