    They sure know how to make something utterly unoriginal and overdone look insanely epic. I hope this remake/relaunch thing works out for them. Heh - but if it fails, they can always enter the movie industry instead :)

    I'm a big ol' fluffy carewolf. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    I don't really consider it a game trailer, but a cgi to show the end of an era as is titled, the character models are horrible in what way? show me what you consider better character models.  Compared to some games out there, they are pretty decent.

    Yeah, just a troll, their character models are better than most games.  Still I have no interest in playing this game.

    incredible cinematics.

    ....and unlike Blizz this game is just as pretty when you play it. 

    however, i can relate more to a straight up dark Orcs/goblins fantasy setting more than an glitzy "anime" style setting with cute bunny people holding huge weappons....i guess i just the culture.

    This is why I stopped tracking the News & Features RSS :- I can get my gaming news way faster from Recent posts or elsewhere. 

    I don't know what's up with that.

    Props to Square for taking it the complete revamp route.
    Something EA/Bioware should have done with SWTOR.
    May pickup the revamp both to hopefully enjoy it and also to support the idea that redoing entirely is better than sticking to a terrible shell of a game like other companies do.

    Silly post ?you mean my opinion that dragons bringing destruction is un original and convenient? i am sorry for giving my opinion and upsetting you. You are surely sold out on CGI and buying the game on basis of that. Didn't mean to rain on your prade.

    Not a troll just an opinion, it was a decent vid like I stated. As for ones I like better ?

    Here is a list of just 3 in a long list. 

    DCUO opening cinematic

    Hellgate London (one of the many)

    SWTOR.

    I would post links but am posting from my iPad and kinda busy.

    A yes. The character models to me are blahh

     Ditto. I tried FFXIV early on and I didn't care for it much at all. The environments looked good, but that was about it for me. It felt very unimmersive to me, but I just can't get into the bunny/cat people and bubblegum anime elements in it.

    And i think a opinion and a sarcastic remark are 2 different things.

    It is Bahamut, and he has been in FF lore for many years. Its not like they created some random dragon to throw in at the end. The build up for this epic climax was intense. As a player of FFXIV, it brought on many emotions. Sadness probably the first, but also excitement for what the future holds in A Realm Reborn.

    The only thing that would ruffle my feathers is that you're taking the cinematic out of context.  There was about 50 hours (lots of awesome fight scenes as well!) of in game cutscenes telling a story for the last year that led up to this moment.  The fact that this spell, which was constantly referred to as "Meteor", was in fact a prison for Bahamut was a total surprise to those who played the game.

     

    Now, if you say the spell "Meteor" being cast by a bad guy in a Final Fantasy game is "been there, done that", then I agree with you.  Though the people I know expected the meteor to hit the world at midnight, and instead this is what we got.  Heck, there was even a 24 like countdown on the loging screen until the Meteor hit the world for the last 350 hours or so.  In addition every month the meteor (which was a lesser moon that was cast a spell on by an Imperial Legatas -- which I oft refer to as Judges as that's what they look like and essentially are to the Garlean Magitech Empire) was getting closer and closer to the world up in the sky and new storyline was released to combat the different legions of the Imperials, oft competing with each other for recognition by His Radiance.  Most all NPCs also spoke of new things with each month as their worries went from denial to absolute terror as the three nations formed an alliance to fight the Imperial War Machine that was poised against them as they also striked against the Primals and the beastmen.

     

    Then when you were called to the front to fight the Imperials, and midnight hit, you look onto this cutscene (though the in game event itself was horrible, as everyone tried to log in to the same zone and constant crashes, and only a few enemies to fight).

     

    Then BOOM!  Everyone you've know for the past couple years died in an instant, the leaders of the alliance you helped, the leaders of the nations, the people you protected in those states, your allies and the old man that sacrificed himself to send your characters (and the main ones as seen in the game) into the future.

     

    In game there was a poetic prophecy that depicted how everything went down, but it only now make sense after we saw the cutscene.  Hoping that most of the students of the old man also survived, would like to see them in the future (either sent there or lived through it, not sure how far into the future it goes).

     

    While they may have had an advantage in closing a version of the game down completely, I've never before seen such powerful storytelling in a MMO that spanned a year (especially with hours and hours of 3dmax-like fight scenes and not just staring at a character's face like in other games), only to have this awesome and emotional ending (also since they knew they would close the game down and not reuse these assets and cutscenes).

     

    Just like that, you see the second main bad guy flying in the air, your leaders on the side, Cid looking unto the meteor and narrowing his eyes like he knew all along (which he did mention prior that His Radiance would regret calling meteor down just to erradicate the primals and those who oppose him).  Then Bahamut -- a staple of the franchise for more than 20 years -- appears out of no where after you had beaten Ifrit and Garuda and lays waste to everything you fought for in the game.

     

    The power of the world's 12 gods didn't seem to be enough to hold them, as the seal was broken through (you could see their symbols rising up just before being dispersed by flame), and you remember words said prior that the Twelveswood (an area of sentient forest) was terrified of the red moon as it was banished to the skies forever and would not speak of it from fear).  Then you wonder why it was banished, which was promised to be told in 2.0 in it's many storyline archs.

     

    With the context, it was perhaps the most powerful moment I've ever experienced in a game, be it single player or MMO starting from Ultima Online onward.  :3

     

    Edit:
     
    It was also a bit poetic as the song that was playing at the end, so well matched with the scenes, was the song that played when you first made a character in the game's opening intro when you chose your state (albeit they played the full version here and part of it at the beginning when you journey was just starting).
     

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    The game was total garbage at launch, and improved enough just to be crap by the end.  Though it has a tremendous amount of depth and it required team work and a massive amount of partying with other players if you wanted to see the good stuff and the depth of the game.

     

    To put things in perspective, if Tera (not hating on it at all!) is all about combat and game play and little about depth and story... Then FFXIV is the opposite; it's all about depth and story and has horrid gameplay.  It's why they completely remade the game as a whole, so that that gameplay will be there to match with the story.

     

    If you're interested in some Grand Company Storylines (some of the stuff added in the last few months of the game's life), then here you go.

     

    2:30 minutes

     

    50 minutes

     

    50 minutes

     

    You'll see a lot of the cutscenes are skipped, but that's to reduce the time as it focuses on the main points.  These are just some of the stuff added to the game lately and they didn't ship with it (save for the first one).

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    Cinematics mean nothing for a MMO, WoW has beautiful cinematics, but the game stinks.

    I really want to try this game out, so I signed up for when I do buy it later... the amount of signing up that was required to play this game was disgusting. So it kinda put me off the game.
