Final Fantasy XI video

Final Fantasy XI video

Asian Ruliweb put up this 10 minutes video of Final Fantasy XI beta. Even though it's supposed to look just like the PS2-version (with the same sloppy framerate), I'm still looking forward to it. Be ready to delete some demos though, as the game takes 5 GB to install. The beta is supposed to be released here in the beginning of january.

That was awful. This is not the way to hype a video, but: the draw distance is fantasticly crappy. I can understand they can't show players due to bandwith limits, but it's amazing to see how objects and walls shows up just a couple of feet away. This is bad Xbox 1 graphics - god, I'm so dissapointed.

Will test the demo though, at least it's free.

5GB?! I hope this isn't a trend for MMORPGs to come.

I must just not get this whole final fantasy craze thing?!?!

Well I hope those that do enjoy the PS2 graphics.

5gb, that does not leave much room for my ABBA album and porn pics.
I think i'll wait and see what Huxley can do!

well this game is a port from the ps2 version i guess this is what M$ meant by the hd era of games.

the japanese people are more hyped about the PS2 still compare to the 360 so microsoft maybe told square to make awful graphic like PS2 so japanese people might misstaken it from a PS2 game.
Commented on 2005-12-13 23:24:48
Yuck. I hope the success of this game doesn't impact Square's support for 360 too much. It looks terrible.
Commented on 2005-12-13 23:34:03
Don't think I want to d/l this. =P

Microsoft have really let Square bend them over and fuck them up the ass with this mess, I knew it as soon as they said PlayOnline was being used instead of Live.

I just hope it means Square support the 360 with new games aswell.

really, Square can keep this for all I care.
I refuse to be a pony for their little "online experiment"

I just wasted 10 minutes of my life. B. O. R. I. N. G. Seriously, why would anyone buy this?
Commented on 2005-12-14 00:17:52
Why did I watch that? But seriously the only way I'd play is if there was no subscription fee.

well what do you expect all MMORPG's will take up this amount or more cant expect a MMORPG to be 500 mb lol

Square is taking the stance with the 360 capcom is with the original xbox, by handing us the raggedy chewed bones that their dogs got tired of.
Commented on 2005-12-14 00:59:44
This game looks alright since square is actually doing something with the xbox and xbox360 hardware, but they could made look better

Every time I see that fighting interface I puke, Yeah... it was OK at its time, I guess it was that way because of limits and constrains on the coding of the games, so it was easier to just prerecord fights and make a "select case" kindda sorta interface, But COMMON, give me some control now............

You'll waste even more than that if you pick this game up. As an ex-player who had several level 75 jobs I can say that this game sucks aways so much of your time it sickening.

My sentiments exactly. This game will be a waste of microsofts time and whoever buys this for thier "next gen" system. I mean, its a direct port off the PS2. No graphical upgrades what so ever. This was extremly lazy by square soft/enix or what ever the hell they call themselves.

5gbs? um why does anyone care? It's on a disc and it takes up NO space on your 360... I could be 100gigs and you could still hold all the music the normal HD can hold.
Commented on 2005-12-14 03:07:47
Final Fantasy needs to stay away from Xbox. Period.
Commented on 2005-12-14 03:11:31
does anybody else get the feeling that sony paid square-enix to put this atrocity on the 360 so that the japanese will think that the 360 sucks and buy the pack-of-lies 3
Commented on 2005-12-14 03:48:07
I think that if MMO's are going to take up that much space on the hard drive then it will be imminent that a hard drive upgrade will happen, just as long as we don't have to pay $200 for a 40 or 60 gig, that'd be outrageous.

the 5gbs that everyone is talking about is what is taken up on the 360 harddrive by this game. their not talking about the size of the game on cd.

Whatever happened to True Fantasy Live for the Xbox, I thought it was making a return to the Xbox360, as that looked like proper MMORPG. Not this mess here

It wasnt that bad, wasnt good.. just a basic japanese grind game, but all their mmo games are like this.

It isnt a step in the wrong direction.. I just hope we dont see any companys copying this stuff..

World of Warcraft on Xbox 360 would be pretty cool, that was a O.K game.

Hopefully Microsofts Vanguard will show people a real console mmo.

About the game

What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane That camera simply doesnt work for a game like this... and it's why I am worried I wont like the new God of War. For fuck sake, just pull the camer back a little will ya? or at least giv me the option (3 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I like the settting and all but BOY that camera is annoying and the combat seems like the bore that was called Ryse Son of Rome (which sucked!) (4 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Hellblade's gameplay looks very bland: [url] (5 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog into black goo monstrosities that hit pretty hard. it's not ornstein and smough levels of challenge obviously, and i seem to be past it now, but easily the most unforgiving start to a souls game (33 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and seems to have a pretty densely packed collection of tougher enemies really early on. be they red eye knights, whoever it is to the left of the shrine, the fat axe guy, regular enemies evolve (36 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it just feels like it it doesn't ease you in as well. just throws you in at the deep end. no "trial" boss fight, where dying is almost expected. (37 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but i've probably died more in the first 4 hours of dark souls 3 than i have in the other games combined. lol (38 minutes ago)
