There are going to be two main things available for ZAMers looking for TGS coverage.

First, on JP Button, I'm going to start a new feature called Expeditionary Force. I will be doing this together with Corinth, who works on JP Button with me. Since we are going to TGS together, but work on separate sites, JPB is like the neutral territory :D We want to try out this new experiment there and not get in the way of other news and such. With the lack of FFXI/FFXIV expected, it's a way to make TGS more entertaining for fans and those interested in Japan.

It's basically a LiveBlog that presents Twitter feeds and will be used to chronicle the whole adventure from start to finish. It'll start tomorrow once I head out for the train, and you can get more info here:
Expeditionary Force - TGS 2009

Then of course there will be writeups on ZAM. I have been able to secure press access thanks to Pikko's help, so ZAM will be able to get info during Business Days. I'm hoping to get something exciting out of this opportunity, so look forward to seeing the results posted up on the ZAM news page.

Job information, a solid idea of a combat system, knowing what chocobos do, male mithra, new races, how much dmg a rng does if he camps with shot, beta keys. I wait like a child on christmas eve.

If you dissappoint me SE... I will throw a temper tantrum that will scare away all our relitives. Ill even ruin the delicious gaming roast we were going to eat for 'christmas' dinner

I'm pretty sure SE won't really say any **** till 2010 honestly.

**** Japanese business.

My channel with FFXI battle music and hard to find songs that were not even released on Original Soundtracks.

I also plan on uploading FFXIV music when the game is released.

Elmer, I will love you forever if you can pry for some information about how customizable our abilities will be.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

I await the new info with the same fervor as an old man that waits for his change in a deli.

What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

Try to find out if there will be moogles. And if there will be great axes. We can deduce the rest.

Thats like... one of the only confirmed weapons we have lol. Think thats the Marauder class if I remember correctly. Uses a Bhuj class Great Axe.

Id also like to know if Moogles are back and if they intend to have personal housing again or something similar. Its one of the things I really want both back from FFXI but greatly expanded upon :)

If you would so kindly, please squeeze every tiny drop of beta information out of them. :]

Found a page listing the line-up for SE at TGS09: Here.
Unfortunately, its all in japanese, but it seems that a new Vana Collection is out, with all 3 mini-expansions included. FFXIV is video only, BUT there's a new Front Mission game (FM Evolved) that has a demo and video. As well as what appears to be a Kingdom Hearts port to the iPhone. Google translate is having a rather rough time with it lol.
My brother is an Emo-DRK, I am a kind PLD.
Go figure.

Monks do it with their hands.
Scholars do it in the classroom.
Puppetmasters do it with dolls.
Ninjas do it and then disappear.
Thieves do it then run away.
