A Series Reborn

  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is what I like to refer to as a love letter to fans of the series. The game is an MMORPG that offers many nostalgic references to earlier games, such as the classic job system, chocobos, magitek armor, airships, and monsters such as puddings, cactuars, and...

  • Summary: To be perfectly honest, I bought a new PC with the prospect of Final Fantasy XIV being on the horizon, the other PC games I've picked up until now have just been bonus. But to get to the main point, if I had known that Final Fantasy XIV was going to be this terrible at launch, I would have abstained...

  • Pros: Ease of play: This franchise has historically had a steep learning curve. This latest iteration may be friendlier than its predecessor, but nevertheless is still challenging to understand and master., Educational value: Kids who play MMOGs will inevitably learn teamwork as they discover that work...
  • Cons: Messages: Players are engaged in defeating evil, but violence plays a significant role in gameplay and is the primary means to many ends., Violence: Players fight forces of evil with swords, bows and arrows, magic, and other weapons both realistic and fantastical. Cut scenes display acts of viole...

  • Excerpt: Square Enix's latest excursion in the realm of MMOs is a consequential one indeed. Bearing the weighty honor of also being a numbered installment in the venerable series, Final Fantasy XIV enters a crowded market already replete with great games.
