10) Compensation. If you don't measure up, that gigantic blade will at least let you handle the competition.

9) That classic Final Fantasy feel. Because in my day, we didn't need anti-aliening or whatever the devil you kids carry on about.

8) Fanboy fodder. Come on, everyone has that character they've "thought about" at least once. I mean, ya know? Right? Hav...Haven't they? Smiley: cry
Screenshot


7) Unlimited, unrestricted customization. Because you haven't really conquered the world till you're dual-wielding great katanas while teleporting around and using magic free of MP.

6) Badass moogles. They just don't make them like they used to.

5) Awkward sexual situations. Oh, wait...
Screenshot

4) Girly men with depression issues. Because having little to say about anything while chasing after a woman who just wants to nail your nemesis makes you seem so brooding and deep.
Screenshot

3) Over-the-top comic relief achieved through dry wit and sarcasm. There's always that one character who seems aware they're in a Square-Enix game. Hey, you'd be a cynic too.

2) Mag. Roaders. I've heard rumblings the Garlean Empire deals in Magitek. If this is true, I fully expect a mine-cart escape scene where I have to fight off red and purple beasties who inexplicably have wheels for hands!

1) Someone who is completely out of their minds. Let's face it, some of the best Final Fantasy characters had busted brain parts.

This was amusing, I loved it. That point in the Ul'dah quest line also gave me a "WTF" moment.

Edit: +1 as well, good stuff.

Wait, is that out of a .dat viewer? I can has????



Also, I think that armor looks bad ***. Hopefully SE gives us stuff that is comparably as cool.

No model viewer that I know of at this point. Presumed to be a leak directly out of SE. He 'appears' at the explosion at the end of this trailer.
You didn't see anything.

+1 For humor, I thought this post would be another angry fan but for some reason clicked it anyway.

Hey! I like the moogles in the Ul'dah opening!

I have played this part and didn't connect it to sexuality in any way, shape, or form. You sir should see a psychologist.

Kefka...out of his mind? He's like the only villain in an FF to make any true sense.

I find it funny that number 9 appears to be run through a SNES emulator with a texture filter such as SAI or whatever. That' not a bad thing, it just makes it even more entertaining for me.

#7 I am guilty of so many times over it's not even funny. But gods do I love that game. Best turn-based strategy game of all time, hands down, and only made better with the amazing re-scripting done on the PSP port.

Point #7 is what I'm playing FFXIV for! I loved tactics and I'm hoping that creative character layouts will play well in this game, too.

Lol yes Wedge & Biggs have gotta be in it! Quality characters.

On a serious point, the only thing I dislike about FFXIV at the mo is the playerbase.. All so ignorant and no one ever types / parties up.

But +1 for this post, made me giggle.

This is the best post I've read on these forums in probably the last month. Anything that's more like FFVI is better in my books. This should be stickied. :D

Might have something to do with the targeting monster or characters accurately while partied is a sack of rat anuses right now. And the typing experience right now can be compared to using a keyboard that's been dipped in molasses.

They look like well-dressed demon ladies out of Castle Zvahl, for a bit of shopping and tea in Ul'dah.

...Off to find some beer.
