Been at New York Comic Con yesterday and today, got some awesome photos. Here's a few of my favorites (sorry for the stretched size, but they look crappy otherwise).

Mike Haggar, I was overjoyed :)


An EXCELLENT comedian, but the hair was slightly off. Otherwise perfect.


Isaac of dead space. I even got to play Dead Space 2 while I was there. Epic.


I liked it, cuz I always seemed to catch the face side.


I know I'm not in it, but it's the joker beating on Jason Todd Robin. How could I not post it?


Quailman, complete with underpants over his shorts. I was pleased.


Best Tifa I came across, I caught her early, and when I asked for the picture, she seemed so excited. I told her she was the best looking Tifa I'd seen there, and she was very happy.


My absolute favorite picture. I cut off a line that was 100 feet long, and shouted Megaman Legends 3, he gave me a thumbs up, so I whipped out my camera and said Megaman forever! Keiji Inafune...sweet.

I have more on my photobucket page, but these are the ones I had to throw on. I also managed to bump into Bruce Campbell, and the only thing I could say was OH MY GOD IT'S BRUCE CAMPBELL, and he replied 30 bucks for an autograph. I don't care, Bruce Campbell acknowledged my existence.

Best day ever.

Still playing XI a lot actually, since my pc is no beuno for XIV, and I play XI on 360. 85 dark knight, with nearly capped merits (and I mean capped as in all merits, not drk specific). Got the bale burgeonet and bale flanchard, almost had the bale sollerets but some bard followed by a ranger dicked me out. Working on a doucle attack scythe, it's currently 1 trial away from being useful but I have to kill 30 irrlicht NMs in abyssea la theine, which isn't possible solo for me. Capped scythe at 347 (O_O), nearly capped evasion and great sword.

Oh, and kincard is a bum.

Why are you fighting and whining about low pop/high pop servers DURING A BETA? The idea is play around, feel for the game, get an idea of what's up and down, not OMG I HAVE TO BE THE VERY BEST BEFORE I TAKE ON THE ELITE FOUR or some lame notion like that. So what the population is not in the millions, it won't matter in 2 weeks anyway.

As for the preferred server, I suggest picking what you want, or better yet where your friends are heading. Play a game for fun, not for the idea of becoming Square Enix's number one FFXIV player.

Because we want to reserve our names on the server we end up rolling in.

Don't get me wrong, I know what makes an MMO fun. Regardless of where your friends are, if the server can't support your needs, you won't have fun. And low/high population does play a key roll in the enjoyment of an MMO. Economy, group formations, class distribution all play key rolls on what you can do and how well you do it and all that is directly affected by the size of the server. So, excuse me if I'd like to increase my chances of enjoying an MMO with guys I've known for years.
Uh yeah....you're worried about a name? I think you won't have to worry about it in XIV, since, you know, I DOUBT HIGHLY THAT ANYONE WILL HAVE YOUR FULL ORIGINAL NAME. I mean seriously, if you're worried about a name, you're probably gonna use some lame anime name or one that is beyond popular (I'm looking at those jerky Cloud Strife lamebrains). I'm not worried, cuz come the day I register, Agent DeeVeeOne will be available.

In any case, how about you all just get on a server, and figure it out from there? I honestly don't think worrying about it now will benefit anyone, simply because in about 6 months, the populations will probably jump again due to PS3 users getting in. And no offense to you gentlemen and ladies, but I still don't have much faith that XIV is ready for full play yet, and many of the players will ditch during the first year. If they fix all the problems for pc in the next 5 months, once the PS3 release arrives, I expect a bevy of new ones to arise.

Long story short, don't start fighting yet, there's plenty to bicker and rage about soon enough.

Parn's right about mumble, it's way better operated than ventrilo or teamspeak. For audiophiles, you can tweak the senisitivity of your mic to very precise measurements and actually see them, rather than just assume. The quality for bluetooth users is vastly better as well (so far, I've only experienced one bluettoth headset user as of now). Strongly urge anyone here to test mumble out for themselves, get a little taste of it. You'll like it better, I assure you.

As for FFXIV, I'll be waiting for the retail release before I make any decisions on whether to buy an extravagant new PC or frankenstein my old one to run it. As of now, it still seems to lukewarm to be worth playing. If I'm gonna pay for this game monthly, I wanna know that my horrendously poor lifestyle of gaming daily will be rewarded, rather than penalized, as I prefer only melee classes for most RPGs and leveling magic isn't in my interest right now, nor is crafting. But like I said, I'll wait and see how it all pans out.

This whole process is just a test. Square Enix is trying new stuff to see what will fly and what won't. If it is successful, hooray for them, but if it flops, they don't care. They will always have their ace in the whole, a FFVII remake. The moment it's announced, every bad thing they've done is immediately stricken from the record.

That being said, FFXIV must really look pretty, because all I've heard so far is it's boring gameplay wise (beta friends, etc), the character voices suck, and this fatigue fiasco is perhaps the most amazingly horrible design ever. 8 hours of steady leveling before you start to get penalized? That was a good grind session in FFXI, and the only penalty you'd get is maybe a party member having to bail.

I wish I worked for SE, cuz it seems these guys have so much money, they don't want people to play their games>_>

I'll say it now, anyone dumb enough to get this game at launch is just gonna curse it til probably 6-9 months down the road, when they realize that the fatigue system is stupid and that restricting players who play actively is just gonna make them go elsewhere. I give that at most a year before they revamp it or pull it completely.

Dude, DQIX is awesome. Maybe if you dislike basic cookie cutter RPG styles, you'd dislike this, but if you have a nostalgia bone, this game answers it. Anyone who calls it boring only started playing RPGs around PS2 era, because not for nothing, this game feels like most PS1 rpgs, and for that, I am greatly satisfied. Combat is simple, not overly complex with stupid gimmicks, and the character animations in battle are a much appreciated addition to the DS Dragon Quest games. The story is funny, light hearted, and entertaining, albeit pretty generic. The unnecessary addition of multiplayer is intriguing, if not a little forced on at the last second. Alchemy is never a necessity, but the amount of items added makes me wanna go get the all made, and as such, makes me kill retardedly weak enemies just for loot, which not enough games make you do anymore, kill enemies. As far as difficulty goes, it's only hard if you let it be hard. Grind a bit on some metal slimes, and you won't have problems. Choose to be legit and fight what's in the way, and you'll need to start looking at your gear options and maybe work in some new jobs, new moves, etc. I've died one time, and that's because I choose to fight an early boss solo for lulz.

DQIX rocks.

PlayStation 3 is perfect. Long live Sony. >:(
Now hold the hell on there kind sir. PS3 is also a terrible piece of shit. Why make a system that's so godly, then never actually do anything to prove this godliness? Where the fucking 4d graphics guys? Where's my groundbreaking visuals? Where the hell did my secondary OS go? Sony made a bunch of fucking retarded promises and offers, most of which they've since not provided, some of which they've pulled completely. For fucks sake, how the hell come half the PS3 users around the world do not get backwards compatibility with PS2? Nintendo did it with wii-> gamecube. Xbox 360 plays (most) xbox titles, and has a shitton up for sale on their network. Where's my massive PS2 library of games, Sony (though I am using an original 60 gig model)?

This generation of consoles was pretty (cept the wii, which was....innovative), but fuck was it an abysmal showing overall.But yeah, FFXIV on PS3 and not on the 360, it's not cuz sony got it that I'm happy, it's cuz MS didn't that I'm happy. I really hate MS as a video game company.

Kinda pissed that I didn't get an invite.

Really laughed at this though, so I guess you win some you lose some.

http://www.finalfantasyunion.com/news/square-enix-microsoft-turned-final-fantasy-xiv-down--1018.html

Too bad the article is false.
http://www.examiner.com/x-31345-Video-Game-Examiner~y2010m7d13-No-Final-Fantasy-XIV-for-the-Xbox-360

Idc what the reason is, I hate the 360 and any time it is scorned, I am pleased.

Why? What is the point in hating a specific system?


I am currently having a problem updating the game. I am on a shitty network. Fuck. That's what happens when you try to play on a business trip.
I hate the failbox because MS refused to simply MAKE THE GODDAMN SYSTEM WORK RIGHT. They threw all this money around buying exclusivity rights to so many games (which were timed exclusives) and throwing money at advertising, they had (and still have) shittons of it coming in, AND THEY STILL HAVE A SYSTEM WITH A HORRIBLE FUCKING FLAW THAT THEY NEVER SIMPLY FIXED, WHAT THE HELL MAN!?

...and yes my 360 RROD like 3 months ago.

Oh look, dancer has become the best subjob ever now....

Ok, dancer was already the best subjob, but jeez, SE, why not give them some more freaking boosts? Perhaps you could add a full cure option for the party soon? Maybe toss in an attack boost dance, while you're at it?

Parn it sounds like you have a fangirl.

The video you showed about the battle system improvement is fuckwin compared to FFXI currently and the shit showed during the first alpha. Reminds me of Legend of Legaia where you have the action bar that you fill with attacks to perform combos. I'm hoping you can perform attacks in succession to perform specialized moves maybe, or even better like Skillchains in FFXI with party members. Has some very nice possibilities in store if you ask me.

I'd really like to see, however, how Square Enix will announce the delay for international release, since there's no fucking way in existence that it's gonna make a 2010 release, unless they give up finishing it and simply update it with the rest of the content it requires to be a full game (Phantasy Star Universe anyone?).
