It looks like they really were able to fix that "radial circumference blur draw-in," in Limsa Lominsa..if anyone knows what I"m referring to.

In 1.0 the textures on those stone walls would blur at a specific distance and the draw-in was extremely obvious as you'd move closer and further away. Looks like they cleaned it up..a lot. CHEERS!

I have to say that I am very excited at all of this. The PS3 version looks amazing. I like the way they flipped things around and sometimes played the PS3 footage first. Really good job on the graphics. The Hidden Falls scene with all those characters sunbathing and the music made me lol - in a good way.

The way the female's hair moves around the 4:00 mark is outstanding (yes, I'm referring to her hair).

That's a difficult animation to make look believable, especially in a video game, and they've done an excellent job with subtleties such as that.

I'm impressed.

Even though the PC version looks a lot better I am impressed with what they've managed with the PS3. In general I really can't wait to explore a world that gorgeous... I have my doubts about a few things, but honestly I don't think I've been this excited for a game in a very very long time.

Since people keep posting where to pause etc I will do it to. Pause nowhere because the whole video is superb! I can't wait for E3.

Awesome! I've already put in my PS3 pre-order. The video looks amazing. I'm so excited for the long hair, it's ridiculous! Limsa as always is looking like a lovely place to call home. The Bismark looks like a place I could take my girlfriend to on a date in-game, lol. I'm assuming there will be the option to sit at the tables this time around? Everywhere else looks gorgeous, lively, lush. I cannot wait for the beta/E3/release!

I'm over the grass. There's an option to turn it off. And honestly, in any game I feel like unless you are able to see real grass, like as in a full pasture that covers all the ground, why even have the effort at all? It looks better off on the beta (gridania :) )

About PS3 running amazing:
It's fun to go back and read this, just for the resounding "I told you so" that it produces.

I am so insanely excited. It's nice to have a release date in sight, something to count down to. I will definitely be pre ordering the CE edition, which will be my first CE anything. Worth it.

Man, do the zones not make you think of XI half the time? It's amazing. This is how it should of been from the start, that XI feel but with new mechanics! You have parts that look like Parradamo Tor from Attowha Chasm, some resemblances to The Boyahda Tree, some North Gustaberg, Kazham, King Ranperre's Tomb, etc, etc. They did a **** of a good job bringing some nostalgia back to me, making this even more exciting.

Maybe it was just me, but it's what I'm seeing!

That was really bad for my eyes when I played 1.0 in 3D. It still played and looked great- the way you say your character in the background and the HUD was popped out! Looking in the distance however, hurt a lot lol! Very excited.

I felt that way too. Bronze Lake reminded me so much of the zone in FFXI that led to sky. Can't remember the name, but I thought it was really cool. The whole thing feels new, and yet somehow familiar. I love it.

I totally didn't even notice the Desert at the beginning. Reminds me SOO much of Altepa, that first time I walked out and saw the huge expanse of desert. Granted it was like 4am and I was delirious but I was astonished at the environment. This looks so promising.

I think I'll be making the move from Ul'Dah to Limsa Lominsa as my home in ARR. Getting super excited now SQUEEEEE. Can't wait until Part 3 comes out now so we can see how Mor Dhona and Coerthas look. I loved roaming around Coerthas in 1.0 and I'm hoping they added some life to that zone as it felt big and empty. I pre-ordered a PS3 standard copy and will be upgrading it to the digital CE when that option comes available. I already bought the 1.0 CE and have Legacy on that account.

I hope they update the official Roadmap soon ,as I just happen to already have the week before the official launch booked off work. I'm curious when open beta ends and early access starts. Smiley: grin

Man, do the zones not make you think of XI half the time? It's amazing. This is how it should of been from the start, that XI feel but with new mechanics! You have parts that look like Parradamo Tor from Attowha Chasm, some resemblances to The Boyahda Tree, some North Gustaberg, Kazham, King Ranperre's Tomb, etc, etc. They did a **** of a good job bringing some nostalgia back to me, making this even more exciting.

Maybe it was just me, but it's what I'm seeing!


I felt that way too. Bronze Lake reminded me so much of the zone in FFXI that led to sky. Can't remember the name, but I thought it was really cool. The whole thing feels new, and yet somehow familiar. I love it.



One area, looked like Zi'Tah too.

The game is looking and sounding really good. It's a little bit nostalgic, but also just a lot more interesting.

1.0's world looked good, but was boring. ARR is shaping up to a world you really want to explore.

Plus, this is just the beginning. If you liken it to FFXI, most, if not all of us played the game with Zilart already installed. This looks like a great foundation for expansions, and gives me hope for the future. (this also depends heavily on gameplay and story and all of that, but this is a great start.)

Finally got to watch the tour...wow.

LL looked amazing.
Camp Drybone was awesome, when I quit the camps were a couple of tents and some rude guards.
The Salt Strand reminds me of the Forgotten Capital in VII.
Bloodshore...oh Bloodshore...

Is it August 27th yet Smiley: frown

Here's what some scenes remind me of:

10 seconds Altepa
1:05 La Vaule
1:16 Tu'Lia
1:34 Windurst
2:09 (Not from XI, but looks like the Forgotten Capital from VII)
3:45 King Ranperre's Tomb
4:12 Boyahda Tree/Sanctuary of Zi'Tah
4:56 Iifa Tree from Final Fantasy IX
5:20 Tavnazian Safehold
5:49 Parradamo Tor
6:02 North Gustaberg (near the Thief AF quest)
6:15 South Gustaberg
6:22 Kazham
6:33 If Costa Del Sol was mashed into the Dangruf Wadi
7:03 and lastly Jugner Forest.

Now, I'm not saying they just copied these zones, far from it. This is simply what the zones remind me of from past Final Fantasy games, they all have a very unique feel to them and feel very alive. Heck, some of my thoughts are probably far fetched, but it's what I'm seeing!
