Square Enix have been showing off some more of Final Fantasy XIV. In particular, they’ve addressed some initial concerns that the game looked a bit bland.
I would agree that the lighting differences between the alpha test and beta test versions are more dramatic. I do worry about the combat though. I used to perfer my CRPG combat to be turn based… but after Final Fantasy XIII failed to hold my attention I do worry about its future. Watch the few seconds of combat in this vid. Do you fall asleep?
