FFXIV: The Metamorphosis from Alpha to Beta!

Square Enix have put up an awesome Alpha and Beta Comparison video on their official YouTube channel

The graphics look absolutely stunning and exhibit a huge improvement over the alpha client. It also shows the excellent upgrade to the battle system (as reported during E3 earlier this month)

Finally, I have to thank one of my Japanese friends for emailing me the link to Famitsu's latest online article.  It contains... (can you believe it?)... Apkallu from FFXI!   I remember hunting those things on the boat to Nashmau for a certain drop lol.  And here they are in FFXIV, including the Gobbue (we already saw that from the new trailer), bomb and Fungar... (heh, back in 2004 I remember them being the first mob to kill me on FFXI due to my 'noobism'; all cuz I had  no idea how to cue poison... hurray for antidotes ehh?).

Remember the Akpallu?
The salamander

The third image is kinda cute innit?  Dangerously cute dark furries holding rocks to lob towards all and sundery lol.... apparently they're called Spirrigans.  And of course, the last is of the very upgraded Fungar (supposedly found around Gridania).  Well, that's all for now folks!  Be well everyone and thanks again for the email Jijisachi! xD
