    the beta phase 3 part 5 starts Wednesday, also phase 4 will use a new client since that version will likely be the launch version for the client or something like that.

    SE should rename this A Realm Reblonde. Minfillia remimds me a bit of Ashe from FFXII and Thanalan looks like he's a cross between Tidus and Vaan.

    It's nice to see Alphinaud & Alisaie another set of twins, a shout out to FFIV with Palom and Porom.

    And poor Cid all alone in the Garlond Ironworks. I'm sure more characters will be added in time.

    Noaki Yoshida Addresses Concerns about Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

    The teams from Final Fantasy World and Final Fantasy Ring conducted an exclusive French interview with director and producer, Naoki Yoshida, on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn at Japan Expo and we now have the proper English transcript!
    Yoshida was grilled with worrisome questions regarding the core ideas of the game, the duty finder, the inclusion of Lightning, and PvP.

    There's a concern that the duty finder aspect of the game will make players lazy and reluctant to explore the world of Eorzea. But, Yoshida argues that the goal is to give players more options - more liberty. He doesn't want to force anybody to do anything. If someone only has 1 hour to play per day, the duty finder is helpful. You don't have to travel the world if you don't want to.


    Regarding the inclusion of Lightning into the game, Yoshida stressed, once again, that there will be a reason in the storyline that explains why she's there "naturally". She doesn't just barge in the game.


    On the topic of PvP, Yoshida says that it's hugely influenced by the game, Dark Age of Camelot. He wants player to enjoy PvP as a sport, not merely to murder other players.



    Lastly, Yoshida says the development teams have heard the negative feedback from fans on the PlayStation 3 port and they have tried their best to push the limits of the hardware. He stated, "Just because we try hard, it doesn’t mean the speed will be improved, but we are going to do our best to make all the playable zones appear as quickly as possible. We are also going to use the feedback from the user interface. From the graphics point of view, I think we have pretty much reached the perfection for the PS3 version. We have tried so hard until the very last minute, we feel comfortable that we have managed to have worked with the limitations of the PS3 hardware as an MMO with this quality of graphics."

    Lightning awoke.

    "Is this...Pulse? I...I did it. I restored the world to its former glory."

    *Lalafell and other mysterious beings roam past Lightning*

    "This can't be right...where am I?"

    *An Airship lands nearby and a man steps out. Lightning stands on guard*

    "Who are you? And where am I?"

    "The names Cid. And this is Eorzea."

    "Eorzea?"

    "Correct. Long ago this land was destroyed. Apparently due to the effects of an event in another world. Many were killed. And it's ALL YOUR FAULT"

    "What?"

    "Legend tells us a woman would appear. That woman led to our land being destroyed. A paradox occured that ripped through time and space and entered our world. Now we live in A Realm Reborn anew...and you must face the consequences...

    ...Eorzeans, kill her!"

    Poor Lightning. Nothing ever goes well for her.

    ^She is a character in the game, that and it seems Snow's outfit along with some XIII weapons too. The game im enjoying so far minus some framerate issues. I'll buy it when it's out and I will tolerate Lightning being omnipresent in every future Final Fantasy.

    Right until this character from Final Fantasy XXVII gets so annoyed with Lightning trying to hog the limelight, that she makes a 'Saw-esque' incident occur.



    I sure hope Lightning isn't intertwined with the main story to XIV.

    Before Meteor - Final Fantasy XIV Original Soundtrack



    Here is an odd bit of news, but it's interesting. This soundtrack is now up for preorder on the Square Enix Boutique, the french online store. It is €45.99 and comes with quite alot of content.

    • Over 5 hours of music, 104 tracks and the opening cinematic of the game "A New Beginning", remastered in 5.1 Surround Sound.
    • The initial draft contains a code to unlock an exclusive, and I direct quote, "mascot mechanical Dalamud".
    • Note that it is a blu-ray and therefore you can't ue it as a normal audio CD in your car, however on PC, you can get the mp3's off the disc.
    • The soundtrack was imported from japan.


    The soundtrack is out 14/08/2013.


    Here's the direct translation from Google on the website

    "Proposant plus de 5 heures de musique, 104 pistes et la cinématique d’ouverture du jeu « Un nouveau départ » remasterisée en son surround 5.1, ce Blu-ray vous plongera complètement dans le royaume d’Éorzéa !

    Avec le tirage initial uniquement, vous pourrez obtenir un code permettant de débloquer une mascotte exclusive : le Dalamud mécanique. Notez que vous ne pourrez utiliser ce code qu’à la sortie de FINAL FANTASY XIV : A Realm Reborn. Ce code bonus devra être utilisé avant le 31 décembre 2014.

    * Notez que cette bande-originale n’est pas un CD audio. Un lecteur Blu-ray est nécessaire.
    * Les possesseurs d’un lecteur compatible Blu-ray sur leur ordinateur pourront récupérer des versions mp3 de toutes les pistes.
    * Cette bande-originale a été importée du Japon."

    I've never bought a Final Fantasy sound track before, and I doubt I ever will. I'll just enjoy the music in-game, and maybe listen to a few on youtube from time to time.

    The whole meteor thing wreaks of FFVII.
