FFXIV: Return to Ivalice
« on: September 04, 2017, 02:18:18 PM »
Hey team, read this article and thought it was pretty cool. FFXII and FFT will be featuring prominently in a new raid in FFXIV. It'll be pretty cool to see FFT areas be fully explorable. Article here.


"You, no less human than we? Ha! Now there's a beastly thought. You've been less than we from the moment your baseborn father fell upon your mother in whatever gutter saw you sired! You've been chattel since you came into the world drenched in common blood!"
Always fashionably late to the party.

That is pretty darn cool. I'm not into mmos but XIV is probably one of the few I'd try getting into nowadays. Ivalice, Midgar, and Spira have always been my favorite FF worlds. Wonder if they'll have a actual tactics gameplay portion, or maybe as a minigame like Triple Triad.

    Triple Triad is already in the game

    As for the FFT stuff, I don't care that much as honestly id really expect it to piss off FFT fans more than anything since obviously there is no way to make any of the areas look like the small maps we had in FFT, so instead you'll probably see, generic flatland area, generic swamp area, generic volcano, generic desert and a couple towns names after the FFT towns  (with WotL names) while actually looking nothing like them.

    It's a raid, so it won't feature those maps anyway. It'll be more about the bosses you fight along the way, as it's been with all the other throwback bosses (Gilgamesh, Ultros, and so forth).

    I tend to categorically hate MMOs, but I loved XIV in both its incarnations. 1.x was barely an MMO, since it rewarded playing by yourself. ARR is missing some of what I liked about 1.x, but improved on so many other things (except the cutscene events, which are absolute trash compared to what they used to be) that I'm cool with just letting them improve the world and add more features.

    I know how you feel Bonesy, we haven't played in over 2 years because it's so goddamn expensive. They don't even offer reasonable price for Canadians like Steam does (nearly always 110% USD price), instead they charge exchange rate prices (124% + 4% conversion), and it used to be more like 132% + 4% two years ago. We had only been playing for 3 months and they were asking us to buy Heavensward at 40 bucks each, so $80 USD, on top of the $15 for each of us every month... it just got way too expensive. Not having bought Heavensward, we lost all our friends because no one had interest in non-expansion stuff... so we lost our reason to play.

    Yeah, i wish sub fees would go the way of the dodo. At least I might be getting a better comp soon so I can go play TERA or Neverwinter or something.

    Neverwinter is good, but it's not very mmorpg like. It's more like massive multiplayer baldurs gate. I play it on ps4

    MMO Baldur's Gate would probably keep my interest longer, tbh.

    MMO Baldur's Gate is a wet dream come true.

    So, Return to Ivalice is out. A few fun finds. Fair warning, spoilers for the raid below, so avert your eyes if you don't want to be spoiled.


    I'll add more as I learn more, but this is a fun little tribute to XII and FFT, and apparently Matsuno himself was behind it. (More FFT stuff in the future, perhaps?)
