Don't let your age deceive you, Kevadu. You're already old, lol.

Honestly Tenchi, I am just dying to play it more. The gameplay is fast paced for an mmo and more active. Even running from overwhelming odds (adamantoises in my training zones much?)is less a battle of luck and more controlled by the player. Having played XI for as long as I did, this game has such a level of player control that any lingering feeling I had for XI is gone. It's not Dragon's Dogma or Mass Effect, but I have control of what I do to a much broader degree, enough so that enemies that are normally too strong to go shot for shot with can now be effectively fought and dodged. I control my fights now, and that's a big sell point for me.

I also like the crafting. It's simple but rewarding, and addictive. A little less controllable as sometimes those odds of success just say fuck you and you blow up 3 times in a row, but you have options to improve your odds and lessen that window of failure. It's also much faster and materials don't cost an arm, leg, and chocobo, allowing anyone to work on making progress.

Seriously, everything in FFXI is done better in XIV. I'm ecstatic to be in this beta and experiencing even the unfinished version of this game. Squeenix, they fucked up a lot of stuff before this, and they will drop the ball on more to come for sure, but this has renewed my faith in them.

Hey....nanomachines...

Metal Gear is not about that. Nanomachines are part of the narrative, but the series is not about that.
Metal Gear?!

Edit: on topic, what time does the next testing date start? I had just started leveling pug, since only a fool trusts his life to a weapon (that was for you ygg, I still love you as a fellow metal gear fan).

I watched a small mortar turn over on its side and fire at a group of people for 10 seconds....good times.

I don't wanna quote Kevadu's earlier reply, but that didn't sound too bad honestly. Unless during the drinking you began discussing the legitimacy of large battle mechs and ki projection and manipulation...in which case then it sounds awesome.

^There you go again shoving your point of view down people's throats. :p

About Lightning being in ARR Ehren Rivers from the Nova Crystallis site made a good post about that:

"Well, this is pretty much Yoshida's doing. Toriyama revealed that they'd put a XIV default gear (Miqo'te) into Lightning Returns as a costume for he, seemingly as a "congrats" for turning things around so amazingly with XIV. Yoshida didn't want to let the favor go unreturned, and was excited to see what he could do with it.

EDIT: And to be clear, Yoshida loves the nostalgia factor and will likely continue to jam-pack ARR with stuff from older Final Fantasies."


And that's it.

Canon, continuity, plot holes, who gives a fuck?

Tell that to any Metal Gear fan.
Hey....nanomachines...

@Akanbe-: Gonna put this in spoiler tags just in case.

Code:
The ending in itself is not mind blowing, is all that you went through to get there and reach that climax in the narrative that makes the impact of that scene in particular more meaningful to the player.

Naughty Dog knew what they wanted to do and pull it off.
There's a certain line of text one gets right after beating the star dragon in Lunar 2's epilogue that sort of fits the feeling I had for the ending...

Ahh 4th of July. 2 days after my birthday, and 2 days before the anniversary of my mother passing away. As you can guess, generally not a favorable day for me anymore. Still, everyone who still has some semblance of a soul,e joy the day and blow something up for me (preferably a MS based video game console).

It's just an event.

She's not part of the main story.

It's probably there because Lightning gets a FFXIV outfit in Lightning Returns.
I mean I love Lightning and all, second hottest FF heroine next to everyone's favorite doormat Tifa, but fuck she's a terrible character. 2 games devoted to her and a whole sidequsst dlc in a game about finding her... fuck already, let the character die gracefully already. No one revived Aeris, even though EVERYONE tried (numerous cameos and prequels don't count).

If I get crap for spoilers here btw, the person who complains better get banned for having nit played FFVII yet.
1435  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: July 04, 2013, 06:21:31 PM
Canon, continuity, plot holes, who gives a fuck? You want the perfect story write it yourself. These guys are making it, you are fully allowed to choose whether you like it or not, but that's pretty much the extent of your allowances.

On a side note, whos' bright idea was it to include Lightning in XIV? Seriously, XIII is not that good why the hell is it getting so much push? Did a writer lose a bet with some perverted old man and have to make his fanfiction come true?

At Anime Expo.  Day 0 just ended and I'm already exhausted just from running around doing unofficial events.  Is that a good or bad sign...
Depends, by unofficial events, do you mean massive orgies with hot cosplayer chicks (dudes if that's your thing), or discussion panels where you discuss the legitamcy of large battle mechs and ki manipulation for flying and energy projection purposes?
1437  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: July 03, 2013, 10:54:46 AM
So I called a mulligan for my birthday this year. Considering I started traveling to work yesterday at 7:30am and got home after 12:00am this morning, my day was a bust. Everyone gets a mulligan for their birthday one time, right?
1438  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: July 02, 2013, 08:56:44 AM
Maybe that's what Joel was supposed to be thinking too?

WHhhhoooooaaaaaaa....
1439  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: July 02, 2013, 01:23:19 AM
So being that it's a fungal parasite and not actually a virus or infection, perhaps that would displace some of your theory, Ashton?

I still like what you said though, that whole thing made some sort of no sense in my head, but it had to happen in such a way given the story progression. Character redemption, etc

Happy birthday to me....

Gotta get up in 5 and a half hours.

At least no one got arrested this year :)
