I'm restarting Hot Read Thursday, but henceforth, I'll be doing it differently than in the past. Each week, I'll be focusing on an article, thread or blog about Final Fantasy XIV, and it doesn't have to be on ZAM or the Lodestone. Anyone who finds an article elsewhere that they'd like to see highlighted should send me a PM. Sometimes I'll write about threads or stories posted on ZAM, but this method of writing HRT will allow us to keep tabs on what others are saying about current FFXIV issues.
This week's Hot Read Thursday is about the beastmen question of the recent players poll, which listed a rabbit-like Viera tribe as an option to be implemented. That question sparked a 15-page (and growing) thread on the Lodestone forum about whether the Viera should be implemented. Would seeing a bunch of scantily clad Miqo'te fighting a group of scantily clad Viera be bad for immersion? Would other races possibly bring more to the table? Or would Final Fantasy fans rather see a race that's more unique to the Final Fantasy universe?
My big question is, if the Viera are implemented as a beastmen race, and then someday they're made available as a playable race, then will we finally get a jump button?
Check out the Lodestone thread.
