The Boy Scouts are notoriously prepared, and for good reason. Rushing into a situation makes for plans going awry. When things go off the rails, failure's usually imminent.

The Gold Saucer is finally a part of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and it's glorious. That classic music returns, as do the iconic Triple Triad and Chocobo Racing activities. It's amazing how much content Square Enix has...more
