Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn producer, Naoki Yoshida, held a special talk session in Japan earlier this month, where he demonstrated the game in front of an audience along with other members of the development team. You can watch the hour-long presentation below. It shows off a fair amount of in-game footage that hasn’t been seen before:



(Make sure to turn on captions, so you can watch with English subtitles.)

    o look its final fantasy xi with fancier graphics BORING

  • Budgiecat

    If I were to play it I’d turn off all that cumbersome HUD display.

    •  Sadly, I find that no matter what online game it is, someone inevitably whines about the HUD/UI =(

      I think people just need to realize that everyone has their own preference for that type of thing and stop commenting on it. Because it’s redundant.

      • Budgiecat

        Meh I’m just saying what I’d do. I don’t need all that crap hiding the screen

  • The amount of boredom I am feeling cannot be measured by human hands.

    But the game looks good.

  • “You must have an active FF14 account to play”

    Damn you squeenix

    • hunterrnl

       Just ignore it and give it a try :)

      Maybe you still get 1 :)

      •  Can’t, thats what comes up when you click on apply and login lol

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Oddly enough i might try this game again

  • Meh. Its an MMORPG. I have enough bills. I don’t need another constant monthly payment.

    I’ll come back when the next non-online game pops up, and I don’t have to schedule my gaming time around other, lesser mortals.

      You must be really hurting for money if $12-15 a month is too much for your “already enough” bills.

      I shall pray for a more wealthy future for you oh great one.

      •  It probably isn’t so much that as it is when you get past living with your parents and being out on your own…having several hundred dollar payments for your house, car, things of that nature may as well be kept to themselves.  You need not add any of the non-essentials like this if you can get away from it.  I’m in a similar avenue.  I already lose out on a couple thousand a month in bills as it is.  The less out, the better.  Unless something convinces me I should add another bill (this doesn’t, nor does any other ‘gaming subscription’) I won’t.

  • This is looking good ^_^
