The latest edition of Famitsu Wave recently hit newsstands in Japan, bringing with it a DVD which contains an 8-minute exposť on Square Enix's second stab at the MMO genre, Final Fantasy XIV. The whole video is posted after the break. Fret not -- it sports convenient English subtitles.

Here's some of the more titillating excerpts: The game features a reinvented character progression system which does not include experience points or leveling up. The job system from XI will make an appearance, but in a heavily altered form -- an interview with the game's director, Nobuaki Komoto, revealed that the game will place a focus on the weapons players use, explaining that your armaments will determine "the way you play" and "the way you grow." Sounds reminiscent of Final Fantasy IX. (That's a very good thing.)

In addition, FFXIV producer Hiromichi Tanaka explained that the game takes place in a new region with a more "modern" feel to it -- the mysterious Eorzea which was mentioned in the trailer. The new world features familiar races (albeit with new names), and plays host to a "deep story," which is told through cut-scenes and quests. For more FFXIV info than you can possibly handle, check the video after the jump.


sounds similar to monster hunter no?

Someone translated the text on BG Forums regarding the characters:

"When you make your character, aside from choosing the race, you will also be able to customize their appearance. Head, skin color, hair type etc, there will be multiple factors. Just how exact we will be able to customize their appearance is still unknown, but we mean it in a good way when we say that it seems like it will become a worry to many players."

It's true, MMO's are a stairway to nowhere. Even if you had enjoyed the end game community, what then after you got all the items you wanted? Your point also reinforces my question of "why play?" With MMO's in particular, the game should be more about the "ride" than the "end result". If you're waiting for a big reward at the end, of course you'll be disappointed.

It's the same thing as life. You work, save money, go through a bunch of bullshit, just to die at the end. So just enjoy playing the game itself. Take what enjoyment and happiness you can get before the end comes.

The silly thing about this whole surplus thing is that I've been playing the beta pretty heavily and wouldn't have even known it existed until people started complaining about it. The first people I saw to have a problem with it were the people who got one single job to 25 in a day.

Anyway, I'm having a lot of fun with the game so I figured I'd pop in and see who all is gonna be playing. Let's playing XIV!
