    With the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XIV: Realm Reborn I felt the need to discuss the game and noticed that there didn't seem to be a thread for it.. so here it is!​
    As you may or may not know, FFXIV Realm Reborn, is a reboot/Sequel/complete upgrade from the original FFXIV and everything I've seen so far looks amazing from the graphics to the cutscenes and even the cute little chocobo riding Lalafells.​
    I'm more excited about this game currently than I am for Lightning Returns despite being one of few fans that actually liked XIII and it's sequel it's not hard to see why..​
    I'm going to be playing the PS3 version seeing as my PC is more of the.. classic design but seeing as the servers are linked I don't see a problem with getting either version if your PC can't run it like mine.. the only problem I have is that can only efford to pre-order the standard edition with the bonuses but I really want that Coeurl mount......​
    Are you excited about FFXIV:RR or are you worried because of FFXIV 1.0's terrible reception? Feel free to discuss!​
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Bumping this thread, and making it the official hype thread. Because I can.

    I'll be on the Gilgamesh server.

    The beta test was surprisingly fun. I might wait for a drop in release price before getting it for real though.

    Nice, I'll be on the Masamune server as our guild is currently at 1000+ members and we'll have a massive presence in the server!

    I'm hyped in a way because i've seen a ton of positive remarks, even from people who hated the original like I did. Based on videos I haven't really seen anything too impressive yet, besides that it looks pretty gorgeous.
    I'll be going into Open Beta, and that's when i'll decide if I want to buy it and try it further. I needed a new MMO to play anyway. The MMO scene has been starved as of late.


    I've been playing MMOs for god knows how long and I'll -never- understand massive guilds. They seem like the biggest waste of time to me. Even the guild I ran with 200 members was stupid big and I gave it up for a smaller guild.
    Though I guess I treat guilds as a family, not just a slightly clustered community to further my own goals with a bit more organization.

    this is the only MMO that attracted me, the other ones just feel......superficial,i think.
    i´ll be on the Leviathan server, by the way.

    I'd be excited for it if it weren't for the fact that it requires a paid subscription (as I lack the money to keep it going). I enjoyed Phase 3 of the beta, and I'll be spending a lot of time playing it during Phase 4.

    I'm still thinking whether to go on with it, I didn't get through much with Phase 3, since I got my invite near the very end of it, so my decision will hang on Phase 4. We should all get together on one server and make a GBAtemp guild :)

    it is a fun game

    it something you can play for a few hours get some quest, get some leveling done,do some FATEs and a dungeon, do a duty(using the duty finder) and explore, stop and take a break and come back latter

    Am I the only guy on Adamantoise? :( Pssst, I'm Etherion Laser on Adamantoise. Add me. It could be fun.

    And oh God, do not get me started on the release of the first version. That game was a disaster. :angry:
