According to the article, seems that distance and direction will be major factors, as well as movement, so it will be interesting to see how that works with their party vs. party concept. SE has a history of coming up with new systems that sound great on paper but are no fun when implemented, so i'll cross my fingers that they keep the fun factor as a priority.

Is it just me or do these classes sound a bit, limited? All your melee seem to be able to tank, and all your casters can nuke and heal. The archer seems to be the only role that doesn't seem to share much with anyone else.  Granted i'm sure its not all the info, but I'd be very dissapointed if this was all the variety you got in the game. Overspecialization is half the fun.

Anyway, has anyone even got into the beta/alpha or whatever, cause other than the press who went to Vana'fest - I haven't seen anyone saying they did.

There's several Something Awful goons who are in.  I'm not in since I'm waiting for the PS3 beta, which won't start until the alpha test concludes.

Anyway, more stuff: http://www.eorzeapedia.com/2010/03/12/famitsu-interview-with-developers-okada-sato-and-iwao/#more-2680

I don't want to be a naysayer, but am I the only one underwhelmed with that video?  I mean the animation and lighting were incredible, but the characters and world seem kinda bland, for the inside part of the world, it just seems like they took FFXI's models and ran them in FFXIV's renderer.  The characters seem kinda odd, a little bit creepy I have to say, esp the tarus.

Um, it's in alpha. Of course its not going to have much polish yet. I'm seeing alot of placeholder textures really. Looking at the old landscape screengrabs, I think the visuals are still a work in progress. Per the interview they gave - the alpha isn't going to have much of anything in it. I dont think the character design is bad at all, the armor is pretty bland (but check out the buckles on the Rogaeden - shiny), but its probably more placeholder stuff.

I'm sure everyone's seen this already, but here's the clan information... http://www.eorzeapedia.com/2010/03/30/japanese-official-site-update-new-clan-information/#more-2877

I'm done with the beta application bullshit. The damn site wont let me sign in, I have 2 windows open side by side. In one of them I'm in the square enix member site and logged in. In the other I have the beta application site telling me that my account doesn't exist on square enix members. Fuck this.

More information about the alpha test which started in Japan two days ago (which makes me think the NA alpha has yet to begin) . The info is from Famitsu as translated by the staff at FFXIVCore.
