    Mild-mannered school teacher by day. Dragon-slaying, behemoth-crushing time-traveler by night.

    Childish Philosophical Pondering Can't Hold XIII-2 Down

    Rated on February 19, 2012 by fmobliv06

    Its a short FF game, but I did not want it to go any longer by the end. The story did not pull me in at all.
