I am shockingly surprised to see that i am still the one who has managed to make all of the XIII-2 boxes for PS3 on this site.

Anyway, although it wasn't nearly as well executed as my Type-0 Box, this box i also like alot.

It took me only a few hours to do this box because most of the material i used in my other XIII-2 Box was ready for use in this one. I don't have much to say except for the fact that:
a) i was inspired by deiviuxs's FFXIII box.
b) This box was made ENTIRELY for the picture of lightning on the back and her quote which serves as the tagline for this box. Im not too sure about the screenshots, and to be honest i've never tried text over screenshots before. But i really like it.
Im actually a bit lucky i found this latest render of Serah on Google. Otherwise this boox would have been lying in wait again.

I honestly didnt mean to do it again, but that quote and rendeer of lightning just is one of the favorite things of mine that Sqeenix has done for this game.

Inspired by me?....well thanks, I'm glad to hear that. :)

Cover is looking pretty neat BUT please change that presentation. It's very "busy" and takes away attention from the box itself.

That is all i will do to change the presentation. I always like for FF boxes, including the logo image in the presentation and box. It's become a tradition of mine, so i'm not going to remove lightning and The dude of the Amano artwork.

Isn't that DreamFactory's render link ? You should credit, in case it is. The box iself looks nice, though somehow the renders on the front doesn't match the background. On the back, I don't like the mix of CG and 2D renders, and honestly, the text over the screenshots looks bad to me. The back's layout is actually pretty generic and uncreative, and the renders don't blend too well with the background. The legal info is way too hard to read being black, I'd suggest to make it white.

No it's not his render. I'm sure. Um i actually really love the back. Maybe I'll change the legal info.
But not now. What do you suggest with the text then?

Okay I hate to bump, but vie seen worser boxes get better attention. No comments at all? Besides the others already there? I mean I put a lot of good work into this and nothing at all?

It's quite pretty to look at. However, the hazy purple background is not agreeing with me. Something about the detailed, realistic CGI characters placed against a rather barren gradient of colors simply doesn't look right to me. I think this would have benefited from something more traditional (scenery from Pulse, perhaps).

I did that because the game still hasn't given us enough info. The front is what we do know about the game Nd the back is what we don't know at all.

I like it :) the presentation is a bit crowded, but the box looks solid overall.

I still think that the presentation takes away too much attention from the box itself. Also, I would recommend making the legal info on the back white.

LOVE the color scheme. Just SOMETHING is throwing it off for me.. not sure what it is though. But I really, REALLY like it. :) and i agree with #15 about the legal info.

Alright I've made the legal info white now, and i think the box is pretty much finished.

#17 thank you man. I was really going for a fitting color schemee and cloudy-ish theme.

I still think that people should wait before the game comes out before you make a box, but hey.
The major issue I see is the front, which looks really left heavy, as there has to be something in the background to the right to look at, but it's really faded out and blurred that you can't see anything. If you upped the contrast on Noel, so he matches Serah.
Otherwise, the back is OK apart from the small tagline with a pink glow, which clashes against the screenshots. Change the final letter in Lightning back to lower case.
I like the colour scheme for the front, but if it was more contrasted it would look miles better.
