Microsoft has teamed up with Square Enix to promote FFXIVARR for Windows 8.
Now as we know, Windows 8 has had a very rough launch this past year.
So, who better than Square Enix to help Microsoft make it's mark again with windows 8?

While Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is not coming to the Xbox 360, Square Enix has partnered with Microsoft to promote the game, and the result is a website (in Japanese) on which players can share their thoughts on the game and on the Final Fantasy franchise to be immortalized on a series of text art panels that use as a base some beautiful character illustrations by the game’s character designer Akihiko Yoshida.
In addition to the initial warrior picture we got two new ones, featuring a lo
A single Kali screenshot has been teased on the official Dragon Nest facebook pagejust moments ago.
The page comment stated:
"Kali Kali, Kali Kali!! Discuss!"
Comments flooded in asking
Which was replied to... "Soon"
But how soon? we may never know, but I'm estimating mid-May or the first week of June.
Kali hails from a shamanistic tribe whose purpose is to watch over Rose, the Descendent of the Ancients. Kali is known as the Star of Darkness who is destined to be the guardian and foil for Rose. Liam attacked and killed most of the tribe and the only remaining survivor was charged to seek out and protect Rose.

Trion Worlds has officially announced that RIFT will be going free-to-play on June 12 with the arrival of Update 2.3: Empyreal Assault. Trion says that it strives to ever evolve RIFT into the game players want, and that the players are asking for free-to-play. Update 2.3 will also bring with it a much awaited new Chronicle, as well as a new Raid, and much more.
RIFT is currently F2P in Korea, it didn't take long for the long running P2P game to go F2P here.
What’s Available For Free Players?Looking through the FAQ and the official announcement, it looks like the entire game will be open and available to players to download and play for free.

In an official news posted on ArcheAge’s website today, it was reported that a player of ArcheAge Korea caused a din at XLGAMES’ offices on 3rd May, kicking on the office’s glass walls and trying to enter the premises due to lack of support over his hacked account.
Of course, he was restrained by the company security guard. But according to voice records posted on an internet forum (here and here), the guard was also at fault for his aggressiveness, leading to XLGAMES apologizing to the player involved as well and promised to “enhance the training for security staff in the future”.
XLGAMES is also looking into an overrall review of the customer service procedures. The player’s ArcheAge account was apparently hacked several times despite being...
Three more weeks until Phase 3 begins!
I've decided to compile a nice job overview
(As a lot of new people will be seeing other players in this gear)
Paladin, Dragoon, Whitemage, Blackmage, Warrior, Bard and Monk
In FFXIV 1.0, you were able to unlock one of these jobs once you attained level 30
and level 15 in a corresponding class and then completed a quest
for the job's soul crystal, which allowed you to freely change into
that class whenever you wanted.
By meeting certain prerequisites, Disciples of War or Disciples of Magic can change from their classes to more specialized jobs. Taking on a job gives characters access to exclusive skills and actions.
The paladin job sacrifices maximum HP, but this is compensated by way of greatly enhanced defense as well as the ability to cast he...

video tour of the White Blue Mountain Range, complete with city and beautiful waterfalls,
take a look at the video below to get a glimpse of what to expect.

During Neko Neko Chokaigi back in April, SE revealed that old Collector's Edition buyers for 1.0
will get a Warrior of Light hat, based on the hero of FF1.
It was also revealed that Collector's edition buyers
(bonus if you're a legacy and 1.0 collector's edition buyer)
will get a few extra goodies along with the WoL hat specifically made for the 1.0 CE buyers
who were unhappy with the first game's collector's edition (Some which consisted of moldy unusable tumblers).
More information thus far regarding Phase 3 and other stuff:
- The third (of four) beta testing phases will begin this June. This will also include the PlayStation 3 version of the game.- The game will release this summer “when it’s hot”, perhaps ruling out September. They may be able to announce a date next month.-...
