If anyone remember FFXI before it was out in Japan, SE would have a "live cam" of FFXI so we can see what the game is like. Sometimes the camera stood still in areas such as Ron, Windy, or Mhaura. I would play this on a separate window just to hear the MUSIC and SFX of the game. But sometimes when you're lucky, the video would turn to someone playing the game and we get to see the menu and the character fighting a few mobs. These are the times that blew my mind, and would get me really really excited.
I hope they do the same thing with FFXIV. It was a neat idea, and got my attention. It was the best thing to look at until FFXI was officially released. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
