Looking forward to this, played FFXI for 5+ years and consider it one of the better FF games regarding the storyline, world, characters, lore and soundtrack.
Initial XIV was a rushed wreck, but Naoki Yoshida definitely cares about the product and turning it around as I've seen evidenced by ARR.

Are they still trying to use CGI scenes to sell their stuff? We know the graphics are good, the graphics were good on PC, it's the gameplay that was horrid - and is what needs fixing.

Also, the music in that trailer was horrid. Did not go with what I was watching at all. Cool action scenes though.

End of an Era video isn't this one, it starts the same, but there's about 3 minutes of new stuff at the end. (well, some of it new)

We've seen gameplay, this is just the prologue to FFXIV ARR, the opening scene as it is when you start it for the first time.

And I think the music fit perfectly, it's Answers from the initial FFXIV, and the lyrics definitely fit the destruction of everything until ARR as it is.

Kinda hard to get excited for this when I know that the battles will be your typical MMO "stand still and trade blows" combat:

Yeah that's cool and all....but it's still an MMO, meaning I'll probably never touch it.

Not really. You'll have to move around to dodge powerful attacks. Once you memorize attack patterns, you'll know to quickly move out of a certain area or you'll probably be killed in one shot. You'll also be able to use Limit Break in parties. Limit Break is basically a special that people can use that involves the entire party.

looks amazing as expected from SE. one thing that irks me though is how quick they recovered, i mean, the old guy just saved your life, dont you think you should at least shed some tears before you go frolicking around happily in the meadow?

btw, who is that old guy?

I was Excited about this until I learned SE will be Overcharging us PS3 gamers.



Old players subscription cost $9.99 per month
New players subscription cost $14.99 per month

If you buy this game you will pay $4.99 more than everyone else, forever.

Ripoff


Basicly given PC gamer the ones who had a chance to play FFXIV a $5 discount forever, while those of us who would of played it Day 1 on PS3 and never got a chance to have to play FFXIV but wanted to will pay $5 bucks more.


Game isn't even out and already SE doing favortism. Which is just plain wrong on many accounts.
