Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
(A Game Remade)
For those who don't know, Final Fantasy XIV originally released in September 2010 and was.... well it was basically a train wreck.
Despite stunning visuals and an interesting story the game itself was lacking mechanically. The UI was broken and sluggish, the combat was unresponsive and stiff, the world was bland and sparse, and the quests outside of the story were forgettable and dull. They tried for awhile to stem the bleeding by putting out some content patches and trying to fix a lot of the issues, but the game was on it's death rattle and had barely even begun.
However, instead of just cutting their losses and leaving the game to hobble on and eventually die, Square-Enix decided to take a different approach...
They hired Naoki Yoshida.
Mr. Yoshida (Known as Yoshi_P) took over the project and it was decided that instead of trying to fix the current game. They would just make a new one.
And it's a damned good thing they did.
So now we have a game with Stunning visuals, combat that is fun and engaging, a world that is full of life and secrets to be found, quests that are plentiful in number and each with it's own interesting little story to be told. Oh and Chocobos that actually fight along side you, Magitech that you can eventually ride and battle with, and generally everything that we wanted in the first game.
So far the PA crowd (or anyone who wants to plays with us) will be gathering on the Sargatanas (Legacy) server
