All that said, I also thought FFXIII looked kinda cool when all I knew of it was its trailer so...

To me, it looks like something Ubisoft (or any other western dev) would make.
It looks like it has characters in it, and it's story is about stuff. FFXIII failed both of those criteria in all three games.
That and I really hope making Cid a woman here isn't simply a bait and switch on SE's part to dissuade criticisim that there isn't enough female characters in the game - straw feminism is just as bad as sexism to me. But I guess we'll find out soon enough.
No Cid = Blasphemy though I suspect Cindy is the daughter of a guy called Cid.
It's not Cindy, it's Cidney. So she's Cid.
