First nighttime shots.  All I can say is, wow.  It... actually looks like nighttime.

Also, note the not-so-subtle troll towards Final Fantasy XI players at the bottom.
And that's why my smithing still sits at a shitty level 28 after nearly 3 years of play.

Yeah it does look good. Hopefully the lighting effects are appropriate for mobs. Hate it when games have good night/day cycles and enemies look pasted on/self illuminating.

I'm impressed with what I see so far. I might have to jump on board when this rolls around.

Since beta is just around the corner, I wanted to share a little video I found online today. Probably the most succinct tribute to the old ver. 1.0, which despite all its flaws, came a long way and was quite an adventure for almost two years. For those who never had the chance to play, or never stayed, this showed alot of what the game had to offer, mostly after Yoshi P took office. For me and alot of the players who hung around, this was a really touching reminder of the good times that were had in a game that really grew to have alot of great experiences even with so many obstacles. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Looks like the ARR beta invites will be going out soon. Possibly sometime this week. Got a tweet today reminding me to update my email for the codes. It was also recently confirmed that any buddy codes folks had with 1.0 will be useable with ARR when it launches. Also, any unused registration codes for 1.0 can be redeemed for ARR, so if anyone is still in possession of them, hold onto them.

Their only chance to get me to try this game is to send me a beta code.

DO IT, SQUARE.

Beta phase 1 begins Monday Feb 25th. Some more additional info and screenshots provided in the latest Letter from the Producer released this morning here.  We are re-forming the Solaris Linkshell for beta and eventual Free Company once the feature is added. Any of the old guard or interested parties let me know and I can add you to our FB group.

FFXIV ARR Benchmark is out. You can grab it here.
It's a pretty amazing looking benchmark, you should check it out.

Here's my results.



59.5 FPS on both settings 1680x1050



49.7 FPS, 36.2 FPS respectively on 1920x1200

Honestly speaking there's almost no loss of fidelity going from Max to High settings.

Is it fully optimized?  I remember the GW2 beta was like that.
