Today Is the Last Chance to Witness the End of Final Fantasy XIV

On Final Fantasy XIV the sky is falling. Quite literally. The smaller moon Dalamud is plunging towards Eorzea at an alarming rate and apparently Bruce Willis is too busy to fly up with a team of rugged drillers and save the day.

Today is the last available day to renew canceled Final Fantasy XIV accounts and open new ones before the game dies to pave the way for A Realm Reborn.

Oh man that title scared me for a second despite reading up on the news about the new update; either way still can't wait!

RmanX10001397d ago

I love how theres a plot device to explain this XDD

Abriael1397d ago

Yeah that's my favorite thing of the whole process, Dalamud becoming bigger and bigger in the sky is a touch of class :D

killerhog1397d ago

Oh I could of sworn it was just ff14 sucking so much and them tweaking/changing a lot of it to try and recapture an audience? Didn't know it was story-wise, silly me.

@Killerhog

Lol that was the most unfunny thing i think i've ever read in my life

/Immature bubble down

killerhog1397d ago (Edited 1397d ago )

It wasn't suppose to be funny. People are acting like this was setup from the beginning, when the truth is, they (square Enix) are just trying to rebuild a game they released broken as new again to recapture an audience. How is that immature? So you're going to bubble me down for giving my own opinion? This is why people are exploiting the bubble system and making secondary accounts because they get unfairly bubbled down. There's a difference between trolling to annoy people and giving an opinion or dislike about a game.

In fact your comment was immature and unnecessary

"Lol that was the most unfunny thing I think I ever read in my life."

Really dude? Love how you started it with *lol*, yeah cause you had no intention to troll? Regardless if my opinion was not in the favor of some, it was still relavent to my experience with ff14 and why I believe square is doing this, your comment relates to nothing besides trying to troll me.

Immature or trolling is something like abriel comment, but you didn't say anything to him right? Was it because it was pro ff14 and anti guild wars? Ridiculous that you have 4 bubbles.

Mottsy1397d ago

Well said Killer Hog. If you really thought this was intended then pass whatever it is you are smoking. I was one of the suckers who bought FF14 on release cos I loved FF11, but I will retry this Reborn whatnot , fingers crossed!

too little too late. Guild wars 2 shall inherit the earth :)
FFXI advocate :))

Abriael1397d ago (Edited 1397d ago )

Too much of a simplistic game to "Inherit the earth". Some people like a tad more oomph to their adventures, and a graphics engine that wasn't already obsolete in 2005 :D

The fact that you write "too little too late" is the perfect evidence that you don't know what you're talking about. As far as we know there's really nothing "Little" about FFXIV: ARR

Grap1397d ago

guild wars 2 is simplistic game.. hahhahha go play FFXIV little kid. or is the server going to shut down. ops...

FredEffinChopin1397d ago

@Grap

Yeah, leave the schoolyard-style insults at the door dude, and find out what you're talking about.

Not only are the servers far from being shut down, but the GW/FF-online thing went down many years ago. Nobody who went from FFXI to GW lasted there more than 4 weeks, and the ones who spent even that much time in GW were rare. While everyone enjoyed the game, it doesn't aim for the depth that FFXI did, and so couldn't satisfy people who were accustomed to that for long. While these are two different games, a huge part of the ongoing changes that have been implemented (and ones that are yet to come) are a result of user feedback, many of whom are crying for a semblance of XI in their XIV.

It's not to say any one game is better than the other. It's just that GW is more for people who like to play online with their friends. FF is for people who take pride in their skill. Call people little kids all you want for playing FF, but know that in comparison, GW is the simplistic one.

carlocgc1397d ago (Edited 1397d ago )

I played 100+ hours with FFXIV at launch i wanted so desperately to love it however for me, it just wasn't happening.

I've had more fun in the first 20 hours of guild wars 2. FFXIV isn't any less simplistic. Leves take away much from the experience what FFXIV lacks in simplicity it makes up for in repetitiveness.

"and a graphics engine that wasn't already obsolete in 2005 :D"

GW2 looks better on my system. :) FFXIV lacked good art design especially the zones. GW2 art design and attention to detail are insurmountable for the record.

I love Final Fantasy. Just not XIII etc, XIV and X

Leves are my main problem i just think its a cop out by the devs.

SephirothX211397d ago

Obviously this comment section will be full of FFXIV fanboys. While FFXI was great., XIV was far from it and received appalling reviews. However, GW and GW2 both received excellent reviews across the board. That's what you call consistency. GW is not a simplistic game and trust me games are very simple when you start comparing playing them to making them which is what I do. Games are not all about graphics and GW2 has a much depth as FFXIV and a much less boring and better combat system.

I can't wait!!! I just started playing ff14 a month ago and have been playing 11 since the US launch. This version update will prove to everyone that ff is still a force to be reckoned with.

TongkatAli1397d ago

I kinda wanna buy this, but what is the special thing that would pull me in ?

videoxgamexfanboy1397d ago

I don't think with a game like ff14 someone could tell you what's special about it I think you need to experience it yourself to find that special something. Give it a try.

Abriael1397d ago

At the moment the game is extremely pretty, probably one of the best looking if not the best looking MMO in the market, has a great flexible class system in which you can level every class and switch dynamically, and it has quite a lot of good and challenging content, especially for boss fights.

With A Realm Reborn everything will be rebuilt to be bigger and better.

TongkatAli1397d ago

Hmmmmm ......... Idk what to say, lol. I hope its good.

Th3 Chr0nic1397d ago

If you call this http://www.dualshockers.com... a nice looking game... then you must have a really crap PC or really bad vision. I havent seen an environment that sad looking since 2005 LMAO and the character armor looks much better but its still not good at all. i mean really come on dude

GrahamGolden1397d ago

imma let you finish but TERA is the best looking mmo today,ff14 is a failure not matter how hard u try to justify the game,it wont impact the market at all,nobody gives a crap about it less than 200k players will play and nothing more

like it or not kid...GW2 is the best mmo today just deal with it kkthxbb

Blasphemy1397d ago

Bro although I think this new re image of this game was a big mistake(they shoulda just let it go) that game looks nothing like the image you posted.

This is a nice image.

FredEffinChopin1397d ago (Edited 1397d ago )

Why should they have let it die? Lots of people wanted to see it improved, and they already put a great deal of $ into creating it. Would it be smart for them to just throw it down the drain, or try to recoup and make the game profitable while making fans happy? I admire the fact that they were able to swallow their pride and make amends.

@Th3 Chronic
Don't be silly. I know you don't go around judging video games' graphics based on a single screenshot. Nobody needs to point you out to anything, look up some FFXIV media *without* an eye for the most underwhelming shot you can find. The game is gorgeous. You might convince someone in here that you're that stupid, but you don't convince me.
