IncGamers' Tim McDonald takes a stroll through Eorzea and elaborates on what he sees and experiences in this look at Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn's Early Access period.
From the article: "Initial impressions: well, this is an MMO. Following 20 minutes with a character creation tool that gave me a breast size slider, Snuggle Paws – a catgirl with a stupid name – entered into the land of Eorzea, ready to do battle with all sorts of monsters. Look: if you’re going to give me the chance to be a catgirl with a stupid name, I’m going to take it. My only lament is that I didn’t give her the first name “Barry”, because a catgirl called Barry would be even funnier."
