A couple of weeks back, Square Enix finally gave Final Fantasy XIV Bards the ability to play real music. Now YouTube is filling with great (and only occasionally terrible) Bard performances.
Back in the early 2000s, Final Fantasy XI was famous for completely disrespecting players’ time. Masochistic and convoluted, the MMO drew in thousands of dedicated players who traded hours upon hours of grinding for the sweet feeling of accomplishment. 15 years later, more player-friendly MMOs monopolize the genre.…
The madam Queen Tepe met me near a bustling harbor in Final Fantasy XIV. “Will you be coming to the mansion?” she asked me. “I’d appreciate an escort,” I responded. Moments later, I’d meet five of them.
There was a lot of winking and nudging when the MMO Final Fantasy XIV introduced three new poses for dozing a year ago. And behind the closed doors of virtual houses and apartments, much more went on after that.
Last week’s “The Legend Returns” patch for Final Fantasy XIV gives players a taste of Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII in a special 24-person raid event called “The Royal City Of Rabanastre.” If you’re a fan of the Ivalice setting but not an MMO player, here’s what you’re missing.

Frustration over Final Fantasy XIV’s housing shortage has come to a head after two players angered a lot of others by buying up 28 homes in the land-strapped massively multiplayer online game.

With the launch of Final Fantasy XIV’s Stormblood expansion, tons of players are exploring the new post-level 60 content. But if you’re on the right game server, massive experience point bonuses are a great incentive to take a break from the new stuff and start a new job at level one.
