Center Stage
April 29, 2013

Hey all.
Fernehalwes here again. After those two quick updates yesterday, I was certain that a third would be right on their tails. But nothing came...that is, until just now. Why the delay? Well...

--------

Ugh... My head... Why didn't someone tell me Dr. Kevorkians were more than just Dr. Pepper...?

Oh, hey...Ferne...
M calling in from... I don't know, some motel with complementary Internet and a coin-operated sofa.

I would have gotten back to you sooner, but the Niconico Chokaigi 2 after party went a few mojitos longer than I had anticipated. How did I get myself into the after party, you ask? Well, let's just say a little Project Manager charm goes a long way. But that's not what I'm here to talk about... What was I here to talk about...? Ah yes, last weekend's event! The event... The event...? Ah, yes, the event!

In addition to the obvious highlights (including make-up sessions and knee-sock photo ops), there were actually a lot of exciting stage presentations, many of them revealing juicy tidbits of new information about ARR.

▼A new Producer Letter Live

(May 1st is Yoshi-P's 40th birthday, so the FINAL FANTASY XIV staff all pitched in to buy him this elegant boa and sophisticated pair of spectacles.)

▼A one-on-one talk session between Yoshi-P and Hiroyuki (absolutely dreamy founder of 2chan)
Screenshot

(Well, it wasn't really one-on-one. If it weren't for the mediator, they would have kept talking right on into the night. In fact, after the show, the three of them ended up going out for drinks. I can only hope they were gentlemen when deciding which one of them can have me.)


A special talk show with three of the voice actors appearing in ARR (Yuichi Nakamura, Shinnosuke Tachibana, Rie Tanaka) was also held, during which several in-game screenshots from all-new cutscenes were shown on the big screen!

▼Kan-E-Senna
Screenshot

▼Garuda
Screenshot

▼Alphinaud (a new character!)
Screenshot

(There was this guy at the after party who looked exactly like Alphinaud. I saw him looking my way in-between hors-d'ouvres, so I winked back, and well, one thing led to another, and─ Hey, how I tell you all about it over lunch tomorrow? What do you say?

Project Manager M

Naw, I think I'm good.

Yoshida looks fabulous, Garuda needs to tone down her fake boobs.

I have an aunt who, when I was little, used to loom over me and grab me for hugs.

Does this blog seem to hint that the next letter from the producer is in May?

Yours didn't? I though that being a harpy was the default form factor for aunts.

Never checked that (knowing her now as an adult, I wouldn't doubt it) it was the looming boobs which were smothering...
