Didn't see a thread for this. Art looks pretty amazing (http://www.youtube.com/user/FINALFANTASYXIV).  If this can manage to be half has polished as WoW while looking like this I may give it a go.  Release date 8/27.

Maybe you missed the old FFXIV thread...it didn't end well.  This one probably won't end well either, based on Squeenix's past.  But I'm always prepared to be amazed  why so serious?

Im cautiously optimistic; their next beta phase starts next week and I believe the NDA will be dropping.

I am definitely curious how this will turn out having been in the first version of 14 which was so so bad...

Probably the most expensive turd polishing session in videogame history. If Squareenix ever goes under this game will be one of the reasons.

It's a completely different game now from what I've heard. UI, controls, etc.

Which is probably why I'll take it for a spin - since I remember the horror that was the first iteration. Hopefully better map diversity as well.

Yeah I saw it, and I played 5 minutes of the beta for the first iteration of the game and immediately uninstalled.  It was awful.  However, given the resources poured into this reboot, and the fact that it is essentially a new game, I thought a new thread was in order.  I'm actually the most excited for this MMO that I've been for an MMO since WoW.  Like I said, if they can simply manage to be a WoW clone with that art and music...I'm in for at least a few months.  Pre-ordered it this morning for $30 from Amazon.

I played it in several prior beta tests. The current ARR version is indeed beautiful. If I had to compare it to something, I would say it now plays like a combination of FFXI and WoW. Overall, no great shakes, but if you enjoy some MMOG action, then you will likely find something interesting here. The class selection was limited in the last go-round, so we'll see if they allow for any other class testing this time. They are very close to release though, so I fear some classes may be incomplete or rather untested.

Combat in that video looks just as boring as it did a few years ago.

FF14 looks like a game I could play... if it had a relatively good story. As a MMO I'm really not interested in it.

I picked up a copy of FFXIV back when it was around $5 so I could hold onto it for when this came out. Not that I expect much out this, but I'm curious how the FFXIV NGE is going to turn out.

The impressions I'm getting is the combat is mostly about managing cooldowns, resources, and combo attacks. Meh.

Pretty much nothing, which is why I'm usually disappointed at this juncture. I keep hoping things like "overhaul" mean new or different combat systems, but oh well.

Still pretty much reserving judgment until I can try out the combat.  Previous fighting videos looked like combat was EQ-style facetanking, just trading blows until the monster died, which I can't really go back to after playing Tera.

Well considering it would be hard for them to release a game worse then version 1, it "should" only get better right?  Unless they follow the WOW clone trend(which would not shock me if that's the case) then I hope they burn in bankruptcy hell

Funny. After doing the latest GW2 dynamic event, where it was basically me solo running, rolling and dodging any time something looked at me funny or the boss spasmed, I miss the more calm pace of EQ where you could synchronize, communicate and socialize. Though I imagine there's a fair bit of rose colored glasses in that.

That said the possibility of them putting the fun back into this game, which as far as I can understand shipped with a foundation built without any, would be an impressive and unlikely feat.

I don't mind being able to do that at any time, but Warframe has made me wish there was no limit to how often I could do so.  We never did finish the Southsun dungeon, and not being able to dodge because our bars were empty after moving out of so many red circles just added insult to the extensive list of injuries.

PC version looks better. There's a trailer out that shows both and the PC textures are clearly better.

If this has a subscription, it's already a no go for me.  If they could afford to run the old version for months without a sub while they tried to make amends, making it F2P or just buying it full retail once-only would be a good PR boost.

So I made it through about 2 minutes of that trailer and it looked like the game was about a dude running along a jogging trail to a spa so he could oogle the ladies soaking in the hot spring.
