Final Fantasy XIV Takes a Sexy Turn With Skimpy Bikinis

Final Fantasy XIV is well known for the conservative style of it's equipment. This will soon change as the upcoming summer events will introduce a quite revealing set of bikinis. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Naoki Yoshida, PC, PS3, Square Enix)

I really hope they have more colors.

how are those "skimpy"? that's pretty normal now a days.

you want Skimpy......go to Brazil....No tops and Clear Dental floss for a bottom!

Yeeeeeh baby yeh!

low cut bottoms, very small cross-shaped tops, that's pretty skimpy to me.

It's definitely a LOT more skimpy than the usual Final Fantasy fare.

Which is a good thing, mind you :D

I wonder if they will ever do that event back in XI where you had to do dance 1/2/3/4 with that one girl to fight against that skeleton guy. That was pretty funny to sit back and watch, (especially when it froze up my 360 due to so many people in one area, lol).

Because this will help with getting the game in form ready to release on PS3 :(

I would say that putting in some 'kinis won't slow it down either.

The staff is made of different teams, and I don't see anything wrong in the team working on equipment to design some fun items, that won't hurt for sure.

True. I guess I'm just a bit bitter as I was really looking forward to playing the game when it was due for launch the same time as PC! But I'm happy to wait for a better product :)

I played FFXI for a long time, was really hyped for this game and I even built my computer for it before it was released (which isn't a bad thing cause I needed a upgrade), I thought I'd like it that much. What a let down lol, they should have just updated the graphics on FFXI and focused on other games like Verses imo. It's good they are trying to turn it around but I have a hard time believing they will win back a lot of the people that left already.

can't have a post on a Final Fantasy game that there's someone that pulls out the usual "they should do versus instead!" mantra, which is entirely funny considering that we know very little about versus, and at this stage with the little we know, Versus might become absolutely great or absolutely crappy, there's no way to tell.

in any case, versus is being developed by a completely different team. Square Enix doesn't have 10 employees that they need to juggle between 10 games.
The reason why it's taking a long time isn't that SE is focusing on other games, it's simply that that time is needed to create a big game that implements new technologies.

...Because fanservice is all it takes for people to look past that whole, "super shitty game that is still completely worthless after countless patches" thing.

And apologists... please don't bother with that whole, "It's a lot better than it was! You can actually play it now!" argument. No one is fooled by the whole, "this shit stinks less now than it did when it was first excreted" argument.
Saeveth  +   1507d ago
Actually it's just a matter of fact that the game has become much better since launch. Currently it's rolling steadily towards becoming a very solid title, especially with tomorrow's patch. I'm sorry if you dislike so much that many people are still excited for this game, I bet it makes you mad. http://suptg.thisisnotatrue...

@ Xof

Have you even played the game in the past 10 months? If you don't like it, and have no interest in it, which you've already proven by your jolly old comment, why do you waste your time to walk onto a news topic, that others are interested in, drop your pants in front of everyone, and then just take a marbol-sized shit in front of everyone, get up and then walk away.

Talk about a fucking killjoy, seriously. The game is fucking awesome. Much better than it was when it launch almost a year ago. Wise up.

You call it being a "apologist", I call it truth. From the bottom, the only way to go is up. The game actually, truly, genuinely is a lot better now than it was when it launched. I love the spirit and style of FFXI, and that carries over into FFXIV, which is a huge draw for me and many fans.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and bet you're a WoW fanboy or something. WoW is on the complete other end of the spectrum from FFXIV as far as MMOs go, you can't even compare them. This goes for any WoW clone out there, which is 90% of the genre these days.

Some people hate WoW, not because it's a bad game, just because it isn't their style. FFXIV not being your style is fine, but don't come in and tell people that a great game isn't great just because YOU don't like it, because the universe does not revolve around YOU.

lol @ the reasoning you guys have.

Clearly, if I call a shit game shit, it must mean I'm either a fanboy for another game, or I don't own the game.

And either way, I'm going WAY out of my way to spend 30 seconds clicking a link and composing a brief comment.

guys... if you can't take the criticism, get off the Internet. And stay the hell away from N4G. Far better games are frequently subjected to far more vitriol than I am capable of.

And for the record, the reason for my ire is simple: I bought FFXI and loved it. So I spent $50 on FFXIV (only 2 months ago) and uninstalled it after 2 weeks.

It's garbage.

Awful interface, it's STILL unstable, it has a tiny community, quest design is atrocious... it's intolerably bad.

And keep in mind this game is nearly a full year old! You can say, "it's better now," and polish that turd as much as you like, but the simple fact of the matter is the Square Enix released a game LONG before it should have been released, and YOU gave them money for it.

At this point you should be ashamed. You should realize your money was wasted.

But you stuck with the game. You defend the game online. You've invested time and energy into this game.

You have failed as a consumer.

Lol to all of you who still just keep believing the game is dead you are dead wrong. I myself happen to be having fun with it and its only getting better with tomorrow's patch.

Oh? I happen t' be playing a Miqo'te as my main. Sounds like good news t' me mate.
