Anyone else playing the Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn beta this weekend? I'm super pumped for this and would like to play with others. I host a google+ hangout with some friends from another forum every night and you're welcome to join and play with me this weekend. IT WILL BE EPIC GRINDING AND LEARNING lol
Basically this is a shameless self bump to see if anyone is interested/invited to the closed Beta that is back up this weekend. I plan on not sleeping for this weekend event again and playing the tits off of the game, so if anyone else is down to join just let me know!
I just got my beta invite so i will be all over this all weekend.
I did a beta test for the first time they pushed out FF14 and i will say that i was not impressed at all.
Now i am totally blown away by how this game looks. I havent done anything in game yet but right before i had to go to work i was working on creating my character and just from doing that i could tell that this looked MILES better than the first beta i played.
I love the graphics so far and i cant wait to really dig into this game. I have high hopes for it.
I think its pretty cool that they brought back a lot of stuff from the old FF games into this one. Limit Breaks, Summons and all the monsters from the old games. I just love it.
I did the EXACT same thing during phase 2. Only had enough time before work to create a character and it was a nice foreshadow of things to come. Everything is so much more responsive, shit isn't buried in menus, fighting is fluid and enjoyable, and yeah, its a beautiful game.
Bummer I'll be AFK most of the weekend. Kill some Fungar for me.
The graphic improvements haven't really done much for me. 1.0 was basically boring and a shit game to play so no amount of graphics could change that but from what I have done with it, the game does seem to be a bit more traditional. Console control scheme seems a bit off but this is the first beta phase with the console players so its to be expected.
Yeah. I find the three major gripes this time around rather amusing. "The game looks like shit why isn't this running on Frostbite", "My class tied to a starting city means I can't play with friends", and "The quest log doesn't hold my hand please change it" bring me joy. I don't know why I still talk to human beings anymore.
I loved it. There are some things that do need fixed or changed but i honestly think the graphics are good. I loved the character models and the environments. I really don't see an issue other than some issues with shadow flicker.
I dont see why some people are saying it looks like crap, i must be seeing something everyone else isnt. I think it looks great.
Some issues i had were having problems finding quests on the map. A faded red dot on the map that i can barley see does not work for me. It needs to be brighter but i dont need an arrow above me showing the way.
If you noticed, they have taken a lot of things from the old single player FF games and have incorporated them into this game. I cant wait to use summons and use FF7s limit breaks.
I also think that its awesome that one toon can be every class in the game. I dont have to regret the class i picked and i can just change when i want too.
Im upset that phase 3 ended so early but i already love the game and have it preordered. This is one game i will gladly pay for and spend a lot of time on.
That was only Test 1 of 4 in phase three and was only to test the PS3 client reliability and interfacing with the PC client. They still haven't announced when the version 1.0 character data transfer test or Duty Finder tests will be yet.
I know a lot of new players not coming from the FFXI Online background may be wondering exactly what everything does. This is a little thing where unlike most companies SqEnix likes to design their systems and present them in a way that the player has to figure out exactly how they work. To assist some of the newer players beta or otherwise here is a rundown of what each stat actually does.
