I really hope they put the Crazy Chocobo music just for laughs, that was the best part of FFXIII-2

Theyre going to have to put a lot more work into this if they want to compete with GW2.

I'm going to be a graphics whore and say this just looks awful to be honest. If this is final product they should just kill off the FF series for good and do us all a favor .

I haven't played the whole FFXIII-2 but I bet the music you are referring to is the only good one in the whole game...

FFXIII-2 is highly underrated mainly because people thought that disaster of what some people call "FFX-2" came, but trust me, it had a good tell of events and the music is top notch, dont miss out

Jace2012 Do you think it's enough to persuade all the folk so disappointed initially? Do you think it's good enough to compete with the current MMO landscape?

From what I have seen so far It is good enough to satisfy most of the people who were disappointed from the 1st version of the game. At least I am...

As for the other question, this is a total different matter. If you ask me most MMOs are too old already (even the ones relatively "young") with a few exceptions. "Path of Exile" being one. And the only one I am playing atm. That and FFXIV.

But lets see the matter spherically. You do not expect to have a game with the character and story depth of "The Elder Scrolls" but you do not either want it to be another "World of Warcraft". I think that FFXIV stands somewhere in the middle leaning a bit towards WoW. Not that it is bad. Side quests may be boring to read through all the dialog text and just follow the quest marker. But the "main storyline" quests are better and provide some cool story elements.

In conclusion, I believe it is a must-try for anyone - series fans and newcomers alike. If they get out a trial version or something it would be very nice for their marketing. If they handle this game correctly SE could make their comeback through it, after the latest failures.

Jace2012, if you don't mind I have a question that's been bugging me ever since the first alpha video.

Is it possible to set the movement animations like you could in the original 1.0 build?

This guy mentions it in this video at around 23:50.

kuje I did not quite notice that. But I will keep that in mind in the next beta test schedule.

Although I strongly believe it does not exist in the beta version.

It will be a nice addition to the feedback section of the forums! Thanks!
