FFXIV: Scenes from the Lalafell underground


Random screenshots from my adventures through FFXIV along with some commentary!

We’ll start with what I thought was a neat shot of the entire Scions team standing around in the same outfits they always wear. Must be a stinky place, if they never change their clothes.


A fairy-fly warding off the night. Also, who builds these impossible architecture? That’s the real magic power in this world!


This would be such a great character shot… if I only had pants. Maybe I could button that coat down a bit?


So… how long do you hold this pose before it starts getting incredibly awkward? And what do you do afterward? And did that pirate lady accidentally shoot the knuckle off the guy on the way down?


What I thought was a really pretty picture of a Venice-like arch and seascape beyond. Love the color palette here.


The new Han Solo, age 80, frozen in carbonite.


I *like* Jessie. At least she wasn’t kissing my butt the way that every NPC in this game seems to. It’s too bad we can’t choose our own companions and associations.


OK, if the game is meta-mocking the constant nodding, maybe it’s time to, I don’t know, put an end to it? Wish my character would talk or use some expression other than (a) resolved, (b) super-resolved, and (c) unconscious.


Featured: A super-awesome slow-mo attack that no player character will ever be able to perform.


I wonder how many modern players get the True Lies reference? Oh well, I got a laugh.

    They don’t call it “magitek” for nothing……

    Nice screenies!

    Well, there’s a wham moment that comes around level 56 where you’re definitely not doing a stoic nod. It’s such an important moment that the scene that plays even removes your helmet temporarily. That said, the expressions are a bit uncanny valley at times, so they don’t get used often.

    And the True Lies reference, that was my favourite thing about the Leviathan trial.

    I actually downloaded FF XIV and started a new character after reading this blogpost… Took advantage of the free 4 days to check out the game again but decided i needed to start fresh again 😉 Having fun so far though… 😀
