FFXIV Online – TGS 2009 Trailer

Here’s the latest trailer for Final Fantasy XIV Online straight from the 2009 Tokyo Game Show (TGS). The game is due 2010, with various languages available at launch. The PS3 and PC platforms are confirmed, while Square Enix is still refusing to confirm if the game will be on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console system. But even if it reaches the Xbox 360, it will be impossible to have a simultaneous launch with the PS3 and PC versions.

  1. Hmm… This is a mixed bag for me.

    On one hand, I adored Final Fantasy XI (I still resubscribe once in a while; currently subscribed in fact), and the buggy alpha videos were mostly a plus for me (I think it has a lot of potential but it's obviously not ready), but that new video didn't do much for me. It feels a bit drab: The clothing is extremely plain, the locations are pretty yet not catchy, it feels like random generic medieval market and tavern #220…

    It kind of reminds me of Age of Conan or Everquest II to be precise: The graphics are awesome from a technical and realistic standpoint, but it seems to lack something. There's no “soul” if you will, the fantasy doesn't seem to be there. I don't like cartoonish games at all, but there hasn't been an ultra-realistic game that really engrossed me either: I've been more awed when I first went to Oren in Lineage 2 than I have been when going to any town in Age of Conan for example.

    On the other hand, I'm willing to cut it some slack. If all I'd have seen from videos of Final Fantasy XI would be Bastok and Gustaberg, I probably wouldn't have even tried that game: As a matter of fact I still avoid going there whenever I'm able to. And I recall a Final Fantasy XI trailer in which everyone wore Bronze Subligars and Leather Armors; while subligars are relatively unique as far as clothing goes, that wasn't exactly appealing diversity and style

    I liked the waterfall area in the trailer, and the malboro looked horrible in an awesome way. So while I'm a bit disapointed in the lack of “fantasy” portrayed there, I'm still going to keep my eyes peeled about Final Fantasy XIV
