And wtf is valfodr? Have they run out of names?

This is the only reference to Valfodr I could find that wasn't either this thread or a fashion site. I think they got Valefor from Valefar, so they're probably meant to be different. Why he isn't Odin though...

So...wait is this Snow DLC another Coliseum battle? Cause I don't think most people care about that, most want to see what Snow has been up to and why he's a L'cie again. Hmmm....curious...

I really can't wait until May when this endless stream of largely shitty DLC will hopefully end.

Until then:

You are more optimistic than I.

EDIT: I will say that I approve of Valfodr's design? Why they have two beings named after Odin is beyond me, unless they're using Valfodr in its literal sense.

I'll have to go digging through some of my old stuff, but if I remember right Valfodr (along with the other special attacks used by Odin in FF XI) is both an alternate name for Odin in Norse mythology and a name considered for the XI incarnation. Before they decided on Odin as a summon, they were planning on making him a creature type and used a bunch of the alternates for names.

Also, please note that Valfodr means "Father of the slain" or some such, and his appearance actually matches the original character model for the Arbiter of Time as encountered in the main storyline of XIII-2.



Having just played this part of the game over again myself, I can tell you that the rest of the model shown above doesn't match the Arbiter of Time who appears in the DLC column; It was actually something I've been wondering about, since this model appeared to be some sort of Odin-y centaur thing.

Having XIII-2 Snow in your party without having any influence to the main storyline is just fucking weird to me.

As what Jake said, I can't wait for next month when they will actually start releasing/announcing story DLCs.

Dear, if it was the last one, and assuming that it's about 2-3 hours long, then fuck them because they could've included that in the full game itself.

So sucked in, bitches.

Ok, so apparently there's story dlc, as well as monster dlc, in this case. They say that they picked up the theme for this episode from some chick at the company, so you can already tell it's gonna be all mirky and oozy and it expresses they way Snow and Serah feel about each other. The episode's title is "Don't fight for me" and in the good news, it solves the mystery around what Snow's been doing throughout XIII-2. Why is he a l'Cie, where has he been, all that. As for Valfodr, you have to fight him a few times during the episode and in the final time, where he's actually the strongest boss you'll encounter in XIII-2, according to Motomu Toriyama. This episode also solves the mystery of the Coliseum. It's expected on 15/05.

So... this and Lightning's dlc later on. May's turning out to be quite a month!

Now that you mentioned it, and the fact that this DLC is actually the last monster DLC as they mentioned...

Whatever, I guess. What-the-fucking-ever.

Wait, what? Where did they say that?

Edit: All I can find is that Valfodr is supposed to be the strongest monster in the Coliseum, something about it getting stronger every time you beat it? I can't even tell if the Snow/Valfodr fights are supposed to be separate or like the Lightning and Ultros fights...

I'm really hoping they make a chichu dlc for those ppl who were unfortunate to realize how strong he could be and infused him or leveled him up wrong, if you guys out there could put the word out for chichu dlc it would be awesome

According to Toriyama, Valfodr was added to the game with the idea of having him appear as something like the Coliseum's last boss. He's the strongest opponent you'll face in the Coliseum, and when at his maximum level is the most powerful monster in Final Fantasy XIII-2 as a whole.

I'd much rather get Vanille or Hope as a DLC than Snow, but at least he's in his new attire.
