Virtual Reality: "...Check out this bunch of screenshots from the closed beta of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV. The shots are in a mixture of English and Korean, mostly showcasing standard gameplay and environment shots."
I hope they're being sarcastic
Why? I think they look pretty good for an MMO.
yeah I think they're really nice
Now I know why Microsoft dismissed this one.
lol. Well, the graphics are much better than WoW, which is the most played MMO of all time. So by your logic, WoW isn't very popular and if Microsoft had it on the 360 it would do horribly in comparison to FF14. You get an F. Get back to studying, maggot.
Anyone who doesn't think FFXIV is stunning is retarded simple as that. Hate on the game or MMO's in general all you want it looks incredible. It surpasses a crap load of single player games and easily surpasses every other MMO out there or coming out in the next few years. The game itself will more then likely be far from perfect but the graphics are incredible period.
Hahaha WoW is not anywhere NEAR the most played MMO of all time, Jesus. There are countries outside of your little America, you realize. Dungeon Fighter Online last reported 200 million players. WoW has maybe 3 million right now.
I completely agree with him. I have a mid-high end PC that runs pretty much everything currently out. The FF14 benchmark tool said my PC was fail. That being said, there is no way the 360 could run this game. M$ was just saving themselves the embarrassment.
Darkfiber has no idea what he's talking about lol. It's kind of cute when he makes shit up though.
I was like "I won't get in..." :( I'll try to give honest opinions of the game when we're allowed to
Aion looks better. But for a multiplat MMO I guess its OK
Lol FFXIV Looks way better then Aion.
well, I agree and disagree. I'm an avid AION player, and that being said, from the screenshots of FF14 we've seen, other than the character models, it doesn't look that much more impressive. I will say the FF14 engine looks much more advanced than AIONS, with the lighting effects and based on the benchmark tool. However, from the majority of the screenshots so far, the scenery does look pretty bland. I am expecting alot more in the full release though.
I should be in this dam beta..
I am and it's not all that good right now. On the private forums there's a lot of people complaining about various issues and the controls are just so damn stupid and awful. The game would be a lot better if they fixed the controls and gave direct download for patches instead of this p2p shit we've got at the moment... it literally takes over a day just for a 3GB patch. It's pretty poor and outdated as far as mechanics in and out of the game go. Right now FFXI is easier to control FFS. Rant over.
Ya from a vid stream of someone he seemed to have trouble with the controls, and ya ppl in the stream who were in the beta said they were downloading for about 6 hours just to get 33%. Keep up the good work with the testing!
I have the distinct feeling I'm not going to get into beta... this makes me a sad Galka :(
Indeed, but I'll still just be calling them by their FFxi names anyway, it'll just be second nature.
...is whether or not the fighting is good. Nobody seems to be able to refute what I've seen so far --- that being that the combat is very slow. 12
well, it is a MMO. gameplay is will change over the years. But if your looking for a polished MMO, WoW is still the way to go...if you don't like WoW or FFXIV then you're looking at the wrong places to get your gaming fix.
There are several MMO's out there just as or more-so polished than WoW.
What MMOs are those?
I got my beta invite yesterday WOOT!!!!!
Good luck with the painfull client 'P2P' download :(
yeah i'll see when i get home from work tonight. Still stoked about it :)
if the combat is good i might get it to hold me over to the old republic
Man i want this game.
Beautiful shots. A lot better than the XI models I can see a lot of improvements they have made.
Much to improve in the Beta. But here's to hoping!
