Here's the link directly to the vid:



Added a direct video feed and merged our topics....

Looks like the UI is close to the one in FFXI with the more modern MMO setup of hot buttons at the bottom, chat/combat text box, and a quest tracker. Also noticed movement seems to be similar to FFXI, turn with camera staying still or move view (arrow keys and shift+arrow keys would be my guess, or thumb sticks for the controller). Bodies seem to remain and be selectable, which indicates you loot the bodies manually or maybe it's used for gathering feathers or something. That's what I've picked up at first and second glance so far.

Now I'm really excited cause it looks to me that it has a very simple, and streamlined UI designed around a console just like FFXI...

Emotions from all 5 current races! ~ I'm really liking the Miqo'te a lot...they really do have a more catlike look this time...the Lalafell are creepy!




Lalafell Gameplay ~ In this vid too it looks liek you're able to grab pieces of the UI and move them as you please...sure hope so for everything including the bottom bar cause I hate central bars u can't move....




Magic & Melee


Range Gameplay

Few quick facts:

* Currently you can't jump, but a developer told me they are considering to add it
* I wasn't able to find water just yet, so not sure if you can swim
* I will have an interview up tomorrow Thursday
* The combat system is interesting, reminds you of FFXI, you select a target with TAB, then take up your weapon with F and X locks on it. Then use the numbers from your hotbars to use abilities. The first two abilities I had generated combat points to use the AOE attacks etc, I'll get back on what class I played later
* Game is polished, very smooth combat and performance
* It was played on a PC (I think), with mouse and keyboard
* I did a kill mob quest, kill 6 peacock-like creatures, they were very easy to kill
* Square Enix points out several times that the game is in alpha, so keep this in mind. For being in alpha, the game has come very far and I'm quite impressed. Check back for a write up later.

Wasn't able to pull up some of those vids so I just pulled em from Eorzeapedia. The UI, at this stage, appears to be somewhat customizable in that you can move/resize the components. I'll have to see the human female animations, but I'm in love with the mithra ones.

Yeah the Miqo'te are very cat-like playful, and I love their fluffy-furry tails now!

Definitely playing Miqo'te now. The magic and range fighting looked a bit meh, but I rushed through the video just so I could at least skim through them all. Going to actually watch all of them when I get home from work.

Oh, be sure to watch em. No real magic in the alpha vids so far, but there's red lotus blade, hehe. It's not the 'cat-like' that got me, it's more of the ultra-kawaii idol-like animations. Very good.

On a side note, judging by the reactions so far, this game is gonna freakin explode. People refreshing at the wee hours of the morning brought curse's site down to it's knees and the other forum I frequent is quickly going boom. Haven't checked some of the bigger sites yet but ya...bada boom.

Only thing im not liking... It looked like there was terain restrictions as there is in FF11. hop this is just an alpha thing. IE having to walk around pebbles and not being able to drop off of hills or hang offs. but other than that its looking good.
