This brand new trailer was released on August 27, 2010, for Final Fantasy XIV in the wake of success at Gamescon 2010. It also features award winning singer, Susan Calloway performing the game's official theme song -- 'Answers'.



"Combine the edginess of Pink with the socially conscious lyrics of U2, wrap that in a voice that gracefully explodes like Sarah McLaughlin, yet soothes the soul like Sarah Barailles, and that would be the START of describing Susan Calloway..."

Be sure to join the discussion on our brand new FFXIV VN Board!

Hey all you FF Fans out there. I’ve got a cool opportunity for fans of XI/XIII and XVI that might be reading our little FF blog here @ IGN. I am looking to fill three volunteer positions to get some regular content and news going.

Final Fantasy XI – I am looking for someone who is currently playing XI actively to write reviews of the bi-monthly version updates as well as an adventure’s log. What is an adventure’s log? Think of it like a mini blog letting the community know about your characters misadventures and happenings!

Final Fantasy XIII – I am working on a beginners guide to Paradigms shift and combat that should be live by the week’s end. If your further in to the game than I (second/third disc on 360) I’d love to collerabate to make the guide perfect. Also accepting general tips/hints about XIII since it just released.

Final Fantasy XIV – This one is a little less specific. Since the game is still in production information is only released a trickle at a time. If you keep up with all of the latest FF 14 news I’d love to hear from you.

All of these positions are volunteer only. I am looking for 1 – 2 submissions per game each week and will take multiple volunteers per game if the chance arrises. If your interested please pop an email to r.langdon86@gmail.com make sure to list your IGN username and desired game for coverage.

Vanafest was held two weeks ago and a three part add-on scenario for Final Fantasy XI was announced. The official site for the add-on was since launched and we will be bringing you more news on this as it comes about. For now here is the official post from the PlayOnline website.


An announcement was made today at VanaFest 2010 for "Abyssea," an all-new three-part series of battle-oriented add-ons.

A parallel world existing beside Vana'diel, Abyssea is a land fraught with perils and home to savage hordes of heretofore unseen creatures. Ferocious, towering NMs, new-look HNMs-even the garden varieties will confound would-be challengers with their unfamiliar and formidable powers. These and a whole host more await hapless adventurers with open arms and voracious maws.

In Abyssea, concerns such as the over-population of battle areas and the need for large time investments will be a thing of the past. The development team is hard at work creating a world where parties can engage in rewarding battles with powerful foes and collect prized equipment with the least of fuss.

More details are available via the following links:

I’ve got a pair of Video Reviews for FFXIII for everyone this evening. Over the next few weeks I am going to be posting a collection of tips/videos and other FF13 related goodies. Let’s start things off by watching IGN and Gametrailers video reviews.

Final Fantasy 13 launched yesterday in North America and Europe. To celebrate we’re going to be posting some FF 13 related news and impressions over the next few days. Let’s start things off with a quick round of the major reviews FF 13 has received from the North American press.



IGN Review

"Final Fantasy XIII is a great JRPG and sports a fast-paced, challenging, satisfying battle system. The game also boasts an intricate story, a likeable cast of characters and the best visuals in the series yet (of course).



But hardcore Final Fantasy fans might be disappointed by the game's abandonment of franchise traditions like open worlds, town exploration and complex mini-games. The game is still worth buying, but it doesn't quite feel as complete as its well-loved predecessors.




1Up Review

"I honestly didn't expect to enjoy FFXIII much, being a fan of RPGs with intricate systems and lots of freedom to explore, but it eventually won me over by focusing on a few core features and doing them incredibly well. It's not without its shortcomings; the first half of the game suffocates from its glacial pace and constrained game mechanics. The plot is awfully trite, too. FFXIII builds steam as it advances, though; it may well be the first Final Fantasy that actually gets better the longer you play rather than fizzling out in an aimless mess around 2/3 of the way through."




Kotaku Impressions

"One way to sum up Final Fantasy XIII is that it is a Horse-With-Blinders-On Simulation. It's about progress, and moving forward. It's not without a little bit of kleptomania, however, as sometimes there are little offshoots from the main path. Usually, you can see these offshoots coming a half a mile away, and, thanks to the mini-map's super-GPS level of readability, you can also see that the offshoots do, in fact, end after a distance of about ten game-world feet."
