Final Fantasy XIV site updated – races detailed

The official Final Fantasy XIV English website has been updated with reams of new information regarding SquareEnix’s upcoming MMO.

Most importantly, we finally get an introduction to the game’s story. The new fantasy world, soon to be open to players to venture in, concerns benevolent Gods and Goddesses overlooking emerging tribes as they eke out an existence in the untamed lands of Eorzea. Sounds like a standard Final Fantasy set up to us.

Thrown into turmoil with the arrival of a more industrial and aggressive faction, the opposing clans band together to ultimately repel an attack that never comes.

What follows is an Age of Calm but also a surge of banditry due to a militarised nation now no longer needed to defend its cities and peoples. The perfect set up for adventuring.

E3 09; PS3 Attitude’s Best and Worst of E3 2009

June 2009 marks a historic moment for PS3 Attitude. It was the first of what we hope to be many E3’s to be covered live from the Los Angeles Convention Center. Over the course of four days, we would cover three different press conferences, multiple booth tours and live demos, and who know’s how many crossings from the South Hall to the West Hall, not to mention the meeting rooms upstairs. There were both ups and downs, good games and bad, but overall, it was an experience like no other.

Join us as we recap some of our favorite (and least favorite) moments of E3 2009 along with some never before seen pictures taken by yours truly…
