Some of you may have seen the new trailer for Final Fantasy XIV, where Bahamut tears Eorza a new one. If you haven't, I've provided it below. The trailer has had me reminiscing of days past from when I played Final Fantasy XI. FFXI was the first MMO I ever played, and it's still my favorite. While it doesn't hold up today next to others like World of Warcraft and Guild Wars 2, the experiences I had in it have stood out for years as some of my favorite gaming experiences. The stories told in Vana'diel were fantastic, I made a ton of friends who I sitll talk to today, and I even got married in the game. I was hoping Final Fantasy XIV was going to capture what was great about FFXI and update it for today's MMO market, but unfortunately they didn't do a great job with it. I'm excited for A Realm Reborn because I want FFXIV to be a great new MMO with a fantastic story and great experiences, just like FFXI. My fingers are crossed.
For our games tonight, we have the usual. I'll be doing a Mann vs. Machine game in Mann Up, so if you join me, please have tickets. As for the Dtoid TF2 server, we're going to have birthday mode turned on for the week. It's someone's birthday next week (Here's where I wink and nudge but whatever I'm too lazy but not really since I'm typing this sentence). So then, shall we?
