No Problemo (^.^)b . Ya I am quite impressed with the character model thus far. I can say in my opinion just based on the alpha screencaps, best looking character models I've seen for a MMO. They may not even be at their full potential yet, which gets me even more excited.

I dont know about anyone else, but I'm having a really hard time understanding anything that article says, even after it's been translated!.....anything good out of the article besides the pics? I mean the pics are great and I'm glad to see something else when I'm dying for more new info, but I was wondering if they said anything else...

I'm impressed with the graphics. They are WAY better than I expected for any MMO. They're very nice.

I wanna say they are the best the MMO world will have seen but that isn't saying much, XI still has better visuals than most of these MMOs out there. (Especially WoW. It looks like the brain child of a 10 year old reading LotR)

Wow I need to go to bed. Or put my contacts in. I thought the mini map in the top right corner was a sun, and I was disappointed that it looked cartoony and smiley. Yes, yes I think it is bed time :(

That leads me to an interesting question. I wonder if the direction you get hit to die affects the way you land dead. In FFXI you always landed the same way. I really don't care, I just think that it would be cool, and lead to some funny death positions.

You have to remember, people don't die in FF :) They get knocked out, so sleeping is about right :D

Like Final Fantasy XI, the game specs will be extremely high for the time, but in about 5 years, an average machine can run it on max settings with little to no issues. Tanaka also expressed interest in making a benchmark program available.

http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=25tgfph&s=5


And here is a image of what someone was able to unfog while exploring. Southern have of limsa lominsa( an Island, for those that didn't know)
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/2479/maplowerlanosceaspec02.png

Here is the world map available at launch you can see limsa is the island to the west of the main continent, indicated by the light blue circle.

Friendly warning: Judging by the attempts to block out the names the first pic is gonna have to go. Gotta be from an authorized source to post here.

Inb4 Faithmnk ******** about white knights ect ect

Edit: Took a look at the famitsu screens again noticed they blocked out names too, granted not in the same way but still. So if I'm wrong about the source feel free to disregard Smiley: wink I've seen so many screens and vids lately it's hard to keep track of what's been officially released Smiley: laugh

wow people are really impressed by the graphics. i have to say that AION still holds the title for most beautiful characters and highest detailed environments. i mean, WoWs environments are still a higher resolution than ff14s. dont get me wrong, im excited for this just like anyone else, but as someone who works with game textures and models often, im far from excited about these graphics.

ps. anyone see any floor sheen in ff14? i mean like when the sun is shining on the ground like in WoW you get a really pretty sheen on certain floors, anything seen yet?

InB4 Alpha alpha, alpha alpha alpha. Also, Alpha.

Side note: LOLAION

Side note 2: WoW's graphics won't hold a candle to full HD, they have made a lot of improvements, but it is showing it's age. Give them time to polish this and you will see.

Edit: This is actually shaping up really nicely, notice in that last screen of the Lalafell charging up what appears to be a thunder spell? :D

lol from what ive read aion is a crap hole of a game, i never played it. all i did was made a few characters on a crappy private server and took a thousand pictures of them near some pretty lake, but yeah, the "bloom" feature does make a big impact on the look of a game. i hope ff14 has it.

yeah wow is deffinately showing its age, the character designs are some of the worst ive ever seen, but some of the environments are very high res with beautiful lighting.

and on your it being alpha reminder, i bet you 110% that the environment textures will not be any higher of a resolution at launch, meaning some older and crappier games just plain out look better in that aspect. and im sorry, aion characters have the potential to look like super models, ff14 characters look really good, but man id rather play as a runway model over a ff14 character any day. heres to hoping we have body shaping options at launch ^.^
