Final Fantasy XIV (version 2) is officially released and in full swing. Sadly, Square didn't learn anything from their previous dealing with the MMORPG genre (Final Fantasy XI) and released FFXIV as a full subscription game with absolutely no free trial for people on the fence about subscribing.
Guess we'll be waiting another decade or so before FFXIV offers a free trial of its own, huh? Doesn't look like I'm missing out on too much since I hear that the game plays like World of Warcraft but with a little less content. Well, the game has been out for a few months so I guess I'll wait and see if it gets better in any way.
Meanwhile, a new gameplay trailer for the much-anticipated Final Fantasy XV recently came out.
Seems to look a lot more like Uncharted/Tomb Raider gameplay than Kingdom Hearts as the developers said. Well, as long as the fantasy is there (e.g. swords, magic, adventure), then I guess I don't mind too much. I just hope there's no in-game player's guide like there is in Kingdom Hearts II and Birth By Sleep (do not appreciate the hand-holding crap).
