You want, footage... here ya go... Thanks to Belledeath for digging this up in the wilds of the internet.

http://www.justin.tv/calvyno/b/261943051#r=ufrRjWg~&s=li Takes a while for him to login though, but almost 2 hours worth of gameplay.

I warn you, its painful to watch cause the person playing doesn't seem to know what the hell their doing, and has several other things running in the background like MiRC etc. The framerate is also pretty choppy, but at least its a clear glimpse of how the gameplay works, you just have to be really patient in watching the video.

I'm kind of hoping the combat is a little more fast paced later on. After playing AION, i'm spoiled on the battle system, from the video it looks about as slow as XI ><

I like your taste in MMO's, especially after your support in Anarchy Online, but let Aion die.

I'm just stating that I still think Aion's combat system is the best of the genre  right now that I've experienced, especially at endgame. The rest of the game has issues, but I standby my opinion of the combat. Combat in XI was slow, methodical and boring after a while. I really hope XIV mixes things up and makes combat more fast paced and visceral.

I do remember sighing a long time ago when gameplay footage first came out, but now I'm thinking it'd actually be a nice change of pace. Instead of everything focused on me the pace is set to playing in a party. You see what everyone's doing and if they're playing well or not. Without a addon saying 'This guy is doing good damage, that guy is doing bad damage.' or 'This healer has dispelled 20 times, that healer hasn't dispelled crap'. You can actually follow everything that's going on in real time and not just everything that concerns you.

Of course the trade of is solo will suck.

Looks like the leaked alpha footage got removed at the developer's request. However there's still some more stuff on the net such as...

In FFXIV, levels are called “physical levels.” Points you acquire during battles can be put into HP, MP, strength, intelligence, and other stats. You can choose one of them and specialize it. For instance, you can just focus on strength, or you can try to balance all of them. So, how characters grow is totally up to you. This system should give rise to a lot of originality.

This sounds horrible. The severity of it will depend on if all your stats go up on their own in addition to you having points to assign or not, and if you can 'respec', but just the general idea completely goes against the class system. If you mainly play a caster and want to play a gladiator on the side you'll just be one crappy gladiator with all your points in mp/int/mnd. And you can't really make a 'balanced' character instead of min/maxing with the mentality that people are going to bring over from ffxi.

Edit-Looks like there will be respecs. So the system won't break your ability to play any class. Hopefully each class gets it's own stat sheet so you can switch classes easily. There's still room for the system to be a big hassle, but if they can avoid that it could be interesting(If you do things like respec for certain fights) or at least a non-issue(There's one 'right' place to put your stats and you put them there and forget about it).

FFXIV is basically a hybrid of Everquest 2, FFXI, and Ragnarok Online.

Any of you Leviathan old timers (newcomers welcome too), Belle put together a group on Facebook for people to discuss and network for XIV. Check it out.

Sorry if this has been asked before. But is it known if PC players can play with ps3 players? My wife has a powerfl enough pc to run just about any game, but I don't, and I usually prefere gaming on consoles.

Jesus christ I can't tell if that's a good thing or a terrifying thing.

Can someone just answer me this: is the game good and worth playing?

I DO need an MMO to tide me over until The Old Republic touches down.
