The City of Angels
June 09, 2013

Hello everyone!
Fernehalwes here.

A few hours ago, the FINAL FANTASY XIV team touched safely down in sunny Los Angeles. For those of you wondering, this year's Yoshi-P entourage consists of myself, project manager M, and Foxclon from the Community & service department (not by any means listed in order of importance).

On our way to the hotel, we passed by something that looked eerily familiar...

Wait? Did you miss it because you were driving too fast?
That's okay, because Square Enix America has LINED THE STREETS WITH GAIUS.

But that's not all!
Our American offices went all out and even jacked the room keycards at a bunch of local hotels serving the E3 clientele!

Now I have to admit, those are sweet.

I love how much advertising they are doing!
The entire Universe to the furthest Galaxy, we are told, is no more than a closed electron existing as part of a much bigger Universe we can never see. And that Universe is only an elementary particle in a still grander Universe. An infinite regression, up and down. - Carl Sagan

I wonder how many people have 'accidentally' lost their key cards already and had to get another room key.

Oops! Smiley: wink

This is actually the least amount of marketing I've ever seen from square during e3.

Is anyone here and looking for things to do?

It's about damned time... now hopefully they pop a commercial or two for the "non-gaming" MMO consumer (yes, this is a HUGE population still... I know a few people who play WOW that didn't know Mists was coming out until they saw a TV commercial)
