Obligatory #*** that seems to go with anything 14 related on here, but that's one damn fine video. Hurry up SE!

Still get goosebumps watching Bahamut tear everything to pieces... ._.

Looks nice, but SE has always had great CG. I actually enjoyed 1.0 towards the end and Yoshi-P seems like a pretty cool guy so I have high hopes for 2.0.

New versions of Odin and Behe, guess they still cant break fully away from XI. But it is a neat looking movie.

Odin and Behemoth is in every Final Fantasy before XI you know.

The ending cutscene was very epic, but the extra part at the end... kind of ruined it.

The newer portion at the end was kinda meh. The Odin and Behemoth scenes seemed pretty random.

Odin

Behemoth

I think he was referring more to the fact that Odin and Behemoth are both rooted in mythology and aren't really anything original to Final Fantasy in general.

I feel like I've just watched a trailer for a new blockbuster movie and that was all the best bits.

My protesting against it is how they are being used. In XI specifically they are used as HNM/endgame content. More than likely,to get the people that left FFXI cause of the HNM nerfs playing, will be 3 day spawn NM's that drop awesome gear. If that Orange dragon is Tiamat (This possibly wont happen because Tiamat is being reincarnated as a hydra), Fafnir, or anything similar to a wyrm HNM im going to be as equally miffed. Its nice to bring them in as a sort of homage to older FF's but not as a tool to recruit players from the last MMO thats still making your money.

but yes, Bahamut,Behemoth, and Odin have all been in past final fantasies and are based similarly on myths and legends/scripture.

Also, did anyone notice the soulflayer at the end of their tam-tara video.

Yoshida said that he aims for 14 to be a kind of blend of all past FF's in this game. It's not a jab at 11 to get people to play the game.

also, Summons and dragons all types of mythological creatures (and items) have been embedded into the heart of what final fantasy is since number 3. why is this a surprise at all?

they are also adding;

The Crystal Tower (FF3)
Golden Saucer (FF7)
Limit Breaks (FF7)
-subnote- Technically "Limit Breaks" were kind of a standard after FF7. 8,9,10 all had their own form of "Limit Break"

etc. there's a bunch more that they haven't announced yet.

All I'm going to say is, This game IS awesome and i can't wait for beta lol :x

I did. But that's because FF uses the same mobs in every FF game. However the design usually changes. But for FF14 a lot of them look exactly like their FF11 counterparts. Raptors, Imps, and goobbues are a few examples.

If it does drop Defending Ring with PDT-10 im going to flip my ***though, just to tell you :|

but yea, its nice to have that nod to every FF in one game type deal. I just hope they implement the stuff i was really happy to hear about like: Party Comboing,better graphics withless of a demand on the system, and a "better" game.

In the end, if they do give us just HD FFXI content, my body will be ready.

Uh, how can you say the game is awesome when it's not even released yet... Obviously, the previous version was not so "awesome."

Who cares how well the ffxiv dev team can render cutscenes. This video has absolutely nothing to do with the actual game. People don't play MMOs to watch movies.

How many people still have the opening cutscene turned on for ffxi...?

Its subject so its really a moot point.

People think Call of Duty is awesome but I don't. Doesn't make it any less awesome for them.

Personally the idea of a Final Fantasy MMO that plans on tapping into my nostaliga and love for the series is "awesome", but the concept remains to be proven I suppose.

Oh yea? Give me 5 reasons why the newest expansion for XI looks any better? TBH it looked middle-of-the-road.

At least FFXIV: ARR is new. Pull FFXI out of your *** for 10 seconds and you might find that XIV is quite the decent FF venture.

He played 1.23 until the servers went down I believe. He does have a valid opinion and it's his OPINION. Don't get all defensive because he didn't like 14. It's not going to be for everybody.

How can you even compare the two?

A game that has ***reviews and costing the company hundreds of millions of dollars just to revive it in hopes that people will play it, and an unfinished expansion that won't be complete until 2 years after its release on the games 13th year.

They are two completely different things!

The added trailer was pretty dumb though.

"Guys, Bahamut is free and everyone we know may be dead or suffering. What should we do--- OH ***NVM OUR CHOCOBOS ARE HERE LETS RIDE!!"
