Looks like Versus XIII is taking a step forward rather than XIII's steps back. Gameplay already looks a hell of a lot more exciting than XIII's hallways, hallways and more hallways approach. A return to the ability to actually control more than one party member during combat is also a welcome decision in my books.
Seems to be taking a few cues from Crisis Core for the combat, doesn't look like a bad decision as far as I can see.

Holy crap, Versus XIII looks amazing. As does XIII-2, for that matter. I thought XIII was a pretty damn good game, and I'm looking forward to a sequel.

The "Coming 2011" on XIII-2 thoroughly surprised me, though. That's a bit unusual, but I guess they've already got the engine and most of the character models and stuff. I'm gonna be a little bit sad if/when XIII-2 gets released before Versus XIII.

I loved FFXIII and I'm so glad they're bringing out a XIII-2. Unlike many other people though, I hope nothing is changed with the battle system, although they probably did do a little tweaks here and there.

All of these look amazing. I can't wait for Final Fantasy XIII-2 Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and Final Fantasy Type-0 especially.

I think with the XIII-2 battle system, they may make it so that you can switch between the other characters in battle, rather than controlling just the one character while the others are strictly AI.

Now that you mention it, that would be a good development. Being able to switch characters in battle would be helpful.

I'm baffled as to why Square Enix thinks an arbitrary waiting time to publicly show these videos is a good idea.

Or in this case, knocking out the free publicity.

Boohoo, I didn't get to see the dissidia video.
I'll just keep clicking play until I get bored I guess.

So I am like extremely in to Kingdom Hearts, and I'm really pumped about this new game. However, I've never really tried any final fantasy games, and I know they started in like the 80s. Is the game series worth trying? And if so, where should I start?

They're worth trying if you like RPGs, or the Role-Playing aspect of Kingdom Hearts. You could try any of them to start with, as each numbered entry is entirely different from the others. FFXIII is the latest game, so that may be a good starting point, or you have FFX on PS2, etc.
