Articles about Final Fantasy XIV

Should You Play Phantasy Star Online 2 When Final Fantasy XIV Exists? - Yes, it’s the question someone somewhere has probably asked at some point: with two highly regarded Japanese online RPGs on the go right now… is one “better” than the other? Well, let’s nip that one right in the bud from the outset: no, because they’re two rather different experiences from one another, and as such … Continue reading Should You Play Phantasy Star Online 2 When Final Fantasy XIV Exists?
Waifu Wednesday: Anniversary Special - So, I wanted to do something a little bit different today, and I hope you’ll indulge me in a somewhat more personal post than usual. Today is the third anniversary of my marriage to my wife Andie, you see, so I thought it would be nice to show her some appreciation, what with said anniversary … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Anniversary Special
You Can Keep Your “Games as a Service”, I’m Fine with Single-Player, Thanks - EA’s recent announcement that it was shuttering Visceral and “pivoting” (ugh) the Amy Hennig-fronted narrative-centric single-player Star Wars project it had been working on probably didn’t come as a surprise to anyone. It did, however, rekindle a discussion that last cropped up back in 2010 — once again involving Visceral, interestingly enough, this time with … Continue reading You Can Keep Your “Games as a Service”, I’m Fine with Single-Player, Thanks
Stormblood: The MMO as Musical Theatre - Video games aren't movies. They aren't musical theatre either, but that hasn't stopped Final Fantasy XIV's composer Masayoshi Soken from making incredible use of music throughout the game.
Stormblood: It’s a Great MMO, Too - Can a good Final Fantasy also be a good MMO? Yes, of course, and once again, Final Fantasy XIV has been proving that for years now. Here's how that worked in the context of Stormblood.
Stormblood: Yes, It’s a Great Final Fantasy - Can an MMO be a "good Final Fantasy"? Sure it can, and Final Fantasy XIV has been proving that for many years now. Here's how Stormblood fit in with that grand plan.
Stormblood: This Ain’t No Action RPG - Final Fantasy has a habit of reinventing its mechanics with each new installment -- and Final Fantasy XIV was, of course, no exception. In fact, Stormblood even reinvented some of XIV's base mechanics!
Stormblood: Introduction - Final Fantasy XIV has taken quite the ride ever since its launch, going from strength to strength with each expansion. Here, we look back at the history of the game up until the release of Stormblood.
Eorzean Diary: Lonely Explorer - One of my favourite additions to Final Fantasy XIV over time has been the randomly generated dungeon Palace of the Dead. I actually like it specifically because it’s one of the few pieces of content in the game that can legitimately be run solo while it’s still “relevant” to you. Other dungeons and Trials in … Continue reading Eorzean Diary: Lonely Explorer
Eorzean Diary: The Benefits of Being Left Behind - When I first started playing Final Fantasy XIV in A Realm Reborn’s open beta, I was keen to experience everything the game had to offer as soon as new things became available. There’s a benefit to this approach, of course: coming into new things “blind” when no-one else knows what to do either allows the … Continue reading Eorzean Diary: The Benefits of Being Left Behind
