"arguing about cloud or lightning is pointless because if one of them is in the game they've already chosen them and won't change it"
So much kudos for you!
Check out my team's RPG, Legena : Union Tides
Have you seen the Red Sky? And the Green Lightning?
He said "We haven't confirmed a FF character, YET."
People are thinking that that sentence confirms that a FF character is in when it actually doesn't. Hell, It could mean that we'd have to wait for DLC before we get a FF rep, or maybe, until the next game. YET. Such a big word and can be used any way, even if it means "We don't have a FF rep, YET. Maybe next time..."
Also, I agree with you about the people arguing over Cloud or Lighting... There is no point in doing so this late.
Well when that kid asked if there would be a Bioshock stage Omar said stay tuned. So when you hear a word like yet followed by stay tuned it usually means yes but you'll find out exactly who soon.
