[Column] Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn: Recapping The Tokyo Game Show

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,572MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Square Enix and the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn team were on hand at the Tokyo Game Show recently with some new game information. We've got a full report on everything we learned from TGS so keep reading before heading to the comments to chat.

Before the show even began Square Enix threw out a little tease to the world. They would have a Titan Challenge. But not only would they have a challenge but if the players at the show won, the players all over the world could win. For each team that defeated Titan they were allowed to draw the name of one world out of a box. That world would win a pair of Cactuar Earrings. When I first read this all I could think about is how much whining and crying there would be on the servers that did not win a set of earrings. (I may or may not have joined in on that whining). Much to my delight every server ending up winning a set of earrings. In fact they even added Bomb earrings into the mix and another 61 groups of players beat Titan and ever world won those earring as well. Keep an eye on your mailbox because you should all see a set of these earrings arrive in your mail soon. I do not normally care for just pure fluff items, but when I do it is usually of the iconic FF variety.

    So... does that mean every character got a set of earrings? I haven't been able to log on the past few days, hoping to this evening.

    I think so. I'll have to check when I get home!

    If it does turn out that we all get this, that's a nice surprise to come back to.

    Thanks and congrats to those that did the Titan challenge! :)

    Sweet all those people complaining that Crystal Tower will be too easy will be in for a shock when they find out everyone outside of their own party will be a bunch of randoms.

    Heh, I've always wondered if Foom's avatar is credited to Bungle or just happenstance.

    Foom, inquiring minds want to know.

    Disco Volante was awesome as was the self titled debut and California.

    Goodbye sober day.

    Of course its Disco Volante :) That album had a huge influence on how I write music.

    Great album. Disco Volante is one of those "gotta be in the right mood for it" deals for me. Mr. Bungle I can listen to pretty much when ever.

     

    It's sad they broke up.

     

    As for the article. I'm still ambivalent about the cross-over stuff. And now they want to bring in Dragon Warrior stuff? So, it's not even staying within the FF series? So, basically, FFXIV is going to become a cross-over marketing platform for SE's other games? Not sure I like that.

    I think asian / europen / usa gaming cultures were much closer few years back, either it's me or asian games just become weirder and weirder with each year. I find almost all titles created out there unplayable just on ascetic level.

    For me it was Bungle's Self-Titled release that changed both my taste in music, and my brain chemistry forever.
