wow the new environment looks amazing. is that (new) gridania? the way the monster camps and depth/scale are set up make me nostalgia hard for FFXI. I really think they've done it this time.

It really does look great. I mean, not only does the graphics look good, but the world itself looks cosy and really interesting... something that makes you want to go out and explore.

if it continues like this I really think I'll be able to sink into it for a long time which is what I've been unable to find in recent MMOs.

Nostalgia for FFXI indeed. This looks like I was hoping for.

This is the FFXIV Death Tumbler from the 2ch forums. He is a combination of two different memes apparently, and is a reference to the moldy tumber / mug that came with the collectors edition of FFXIV. 2ch is also the origin of peddobear (really ZAM censors the word @#%^bear?) lol.

Iron Giant looks epic.

I remember reluctantly running into them in the lower levels of the Deep Sea Research Center while hunting Bahamut in FF8.

good times!

I started off in Gridania and to be honest was very disappointed in the zone and surround area in comparison to the other two. These pictures look awesome though! Im very interested in seeing how much the maps have changed overall, theyve got my first months subscription.

!!!! Possibly the prettiest game I have seen :P. They are putting jump in yes? So hopefully you can explore every inch of this new world! Find fun places to chill out like in trees and what not. I just hope limiting it for ps3 will make it run much better so it won't kill my laptop :P. I could run the 1.0 client on my laptop, but it did heat up, so this shouldn't heat it up as bad.

Bee tee dubs... I am ever so glad that you can look up female characters skirts to view their small clothes... lol... goodness

Why do men like to listen to other men sing about womans bodies parts? Is it supposed to be catchy? Does it turn you on? I dont get it, its got to be one of the most pointless songs ive ever heard.

I was disappointed in the apparent adolescent nature of the photographer in some of the images.

Overall, it does appear the world will be less repetitive in design, allow a greater numbers of players to be seen in a single area and have some additional variety of monsters.

That gallery started to get really creepy about halfway down... >_>

edit: though more people like it than I thought. Understandable. It slipped my mind how difficult it is to locate even vaguely sexual content outside of an MMORPG these days.

For those of you who missed out, you can use your imagination...

Upskirt screenshots of cat women with pouty lips in too tight bustiers and experimenting with the character creation 'boob sliders'. Not only did it break the NDA, but probably a few international laws regarding lewd images of domesticated animals.
