    Great. Gushing over the Magitek can make me ignore almost any amount of flaws. This thing better stay in beta until I'm done with school, or the grueling wait for holidays will manifest as physical pain =(

    Magitek <3

    The question is: is it just a mount, or can you use ICE BEAM and TEK MISSILE!

    It was confirmed as a mount a while back, we're only now seeing screenshots. God I'm so excited!

    The mount better be a drop from "Whelk".

    Yoshi-P's stated it's just a mount, but he's planning on "soon after they are released" to using them in storymissions. I would imagine those abilities would be available as well.

    Hey all, huge fan of FFXI - I probably logged over 100 RL days into that game in my prime. Lost interest towards the middle/end of Treasures xpac (salvage really sucked)

    Can anyone point me in the direction (already read the first post and clicked linkys) to some info on this game? I didn't play the original release so anything on that would rule also.

    i'm debating between going back to FFXI with the new xpac or waiting for this, so anyone who plays one or the other (or both!) I'd love you

    14's in closed beta, and an NDA is active so no one currently playing in it can give you any info on it other than "its cool" or "their have been definite improvements". From what I understand its going through a pretty big "overhaul" so the best place for information on it is going to be the lodestone, which holds all the developer letters and blog posts.

    I haven't played a FF game since FF X on the PS2 and I was thinking about playing the newer ones but I have a few questions.
    - Are they still the same gameplay wise since the last time I played it?
    - Does the story continue at all from the newer ones or could I get the newest one and know whats going on?
    - Which one would you recommend me to play, the newest one or maybe the 2nd newest one?

    I don't think you're quite in the right thread.. This is about the FF XIV, which is an MMO and quite different from all the single player games in the series, except XI.

    Well anyway, to answer your question, no the story does not continue. Each game is a separate game unto itself. They are not related, unless it's a specific sequel, like X-2 or XIII-2. All the games from I through to XIII are otherwise different. Gameplay reflects this difference, each Final Fantasy has their own set of combat rules/levelling up systems/sidequests etc.

    As for recommendation, I wouldn't recommend playing XIII or XIII-2 until you've tried the older ones, if possible. They're decent as games, but as Final Fantasies they kinda suck, imo. The older ones (perhaps start with VII so you can get straight into arguments of which is the best FF :P) are better.
