Let me rephrase: Hope was definitely a better character in XIII-2, but that's a standalone opinion of the game by itself. Personally I felt that XIII should've ended with the l'Cie sacrificing themselves - death or crystallization, not because I didn't like the characters, but because it would've been a much more impactful ending imo. After all, XIII was built up where one of its key plot points was that the l'Cie would not survive their mortal form if they do or don't complete their focus. My not liking of the characters has no bearing on how the game ends and is my own opinion, if you disagree with that you're more than welcome to, but be more respectful in the future.
No, the only reason why I "misunderstood" was becuase you did not elaborate of your anti XIII comments in any way. Sure, you can try to make a save right now but, you cant change what you said in the podcast. And that was that the group shouldve died in order for no XIII-2. Go to the podcast and fast forward to the 26:00 min and hear you own response to that question. Usual type of comments by you and I am not in the least bit surprised you are attempting a save.
Referring to you as asian fat dude is just me calling it like it is but, I do see how it would be considered rude of me to say that. And I believe that just becuase you enjoy trying to get a rise out of people and being stupid does not mean that I need to be an idiot intentionally as well. So please, accept my apologies for calling you like it is Collin.
Also, I dont know which FXIII ending you saw, but I saw one in which the characters do precisely what you just told me you wanted them to do. They sacrificed themselves to save Cocoon, how did you even miss that part? The reason as to why I think you were dissatisfied with ending was because they were decrystallized (if even a word) but, if you played XIII-2 and payed attention you eventually learned that Etro took pity on them and "saved" them.
I also want to add that you call Hope a very generic character and thats just quite simply not the word to describe him. Now, im not defending Hope here but, the word you were looking for was crap or trash. Generic characters are space marines or soldier types that say nothing but kill everything, for example Master Chief or COD and BF soldier guys. However, by Japanese games standards he could be generic, im not sure since I dont play any Japanese games outside of Final Fantasy so I could be mistaken.
