I agree with this, I don't see anything special about the gameplay, most ARPG's do this already right now and with Nomura's terrible ability of storytelling I don't have high hopes for the story either. Honestly XIII-2 sounds far more interesting for me thanks to the historiacrux feature. Type-0 tops them both.
I think you both say that because lets face the facts, we know more about XIII-2 and type-0. We know a few characters in VXIII including it has airships, vehicles, maps, towns etc, but thats it. So, of course you and many don't see anything special about VXIII.. yet
