It's pointless.

Well... coming from WoW I can say 2 things.

#1 Blizzard's minimum requirement for gear was realistic and easy to achieve to anyone who puts a minimal effort in gearing up. It made sure you couldn't queue in dungeons where you would have been seriously under-geared.

#2 Players destroyed any use of this by either equiping items which did nothing for their class but were high item level (I have pug way too often with people in PVP sets...) and then also took it too far by requesting that others have ilvl so high they compensate for any personal skill.

Gear check isn't bad in itself. The reaction to it in WoW is what was terrible.
Sadly, I assume players will have the same reaction in FF14 unless they find a way to fix the system.

Well, there's also stuff that I know but I find way too meta.
I could ask which song from a j-pop artist was included in the game, but then that's not really about the game anymore.

A: Tobikata Wo Wasureta Chiisana Tori (The Small Bird That Forgot How To Fly)
Plays at the very beginning and on the ending credits

I worked on this a good bit and I've got 10 questions.
I just don't like half of them.

Also trying to find how I could do a visual and audio question.
The music of SO3 is pretty well known because of the OSTs... or is it just me?

Grandmaster arena challenge with slow ass Alvin VS super quick Jude was an exercise of frustration...
Alvin should have had something like Glory (ToV) as long as you have max Charge (instead of guaranteed crits).

Finally finished Xillia.
I can see why everyone says it ends abruptly.

The last dungeon really comes out of nowhere and takes like 10 minutes without the cutscenes =/

Specifically, it seems like games that use touch features a lot simple won't work.

R3 and L3 bring up a finger.
It works for games where you can slowly pick a location (VLR) but not at all for anything fast paced.

I always thought Tri-Aces wanted to make a Phantasy Star game.

I bet they can't wait to have the player crash on a underdeveloped planet and remove all sci-fi in the first 10 minutes.

... and replace it with creepy lolis.

Wow, I want that little Vita/PSP box.

Then I'd get to play Ogre Battle and VLR.

Tabata wants (Co-Director) Final Fantasy XV to be the highest-acclaimed, highest-profitable FF ever! -- NeoGAF

"Square Enix uploaded their annual report today, and it contains a section called "Creator's Voice". "

Oh great... now they'll expect 8,000,000 units and plan the budget accordingly =/

Well... realistically... if they announced LotD2, we would only get it at the soonest in 2016 given SE's current line up.

Shining Force is not hard at all... I think the hardest battle is probably Chapter 3 against that Laser Eye.

Winning Shining force is easy.
Just make sure you stay on a map as long as you can juice xp from it.

Have mages whack things with their staff for low damage descent xp.
Empty your healers' mana pool on buffs/heals.
Give kills to tanky characters so they don't fall behind.

PS4 is considered a system update to PS3 and will be distributed for free?

=P
