We at Gamebreaker.TV gather experts and media personalities from all over the world to give you the latest in gaming news. Every Wednesday, we gather a panel to discuss the highlights from the massively multiplayer online genre in a little show we like to call This Week In MMO. This week, our host Gary Gannon brought together Mike B aka Fony from Zam’s BFF Report and Editor-In-Chief Jason Winter from Beckett Massive Online Gamer to lead us all over the globe for our MMO news.

Our first stop is Japan, where Square Enix announced in the next couple of months it will begin to charge for Final Fantasy XIV. For the past year, this MMO has remained free-to-play while the developers reworked the game to a standard acceptable to its fans. Mr. aka Fony found himself impressed with the work that Square has done to the game. However, he sided with Winter stating that he would not spend money just to try it out to see the changes.

Next, we travel to Icelandic headquarters of CCP Games. The creator of the sci-fi MMO EVE Online, unfortunately, had to lay off 20% of its staff. Most of the lay-offs centered around the vampire MMO World of Darkness. Gannon questioned if CCP would continue to develop WoD if the developer’s current project, Dust 514, was not completely successful. Mike B was not ready to call WoD vaporware yet, but if Dust 514 completely lands on it face, then he would not be surprised if we never see the World of Darkness come to light.

Be sure to watch the whole episode for all this plus Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium‘s strange news, Turbine’s security breech, and The Secret World’s developer diary. Do not miss any of it nor Jason Winter proclaiming, “Mom! The media is touching me!” in This Week In MMO!

    The last question is indeed bad, but how do you, as a host, not pick the most thought-provoking questions beforehand? This way you ensure a better watch for your viewers and your intimate knowledge isn’t wasted on questions someone could answer within five seconds of using Google.

    I am currently playing FFXIV and I am enjoying it alot since Patch 1.19 went live. And when P2P starts, Patch1.20 will also go live and I do not mind at all paying 15euro monthly fee to continue playing.I love that it isnt as mainstream as WOW, Rift etc.I played WOW since early 2005 and loved it, sadly Cataclysm broke my fun and MOP just plainly killed it off entirely.

    I am not one of the hardcore Final Fantasy fans. Ive not played XI, or all other normal console FF. But I just love the story of FF games. And I simply love XIV cause the gfx looks awesome, being able to level each class and professions on 1 character and how friendly people on the server is. Ive yet to come across any player acting badly, while I saw it almost on a daily basis on my WOW server.

    Even if XIV had a bad launch. They have openly apologized for it and woved to fix it and they are. WoW might win me back some day, but not during MOP. I dont go: This game disappointed me, I will NEVER go back. If the game interests, I will give it another go.

    For now, I am really enjoying my time in Eorzea and cant wait to experience the 7th Umbral Era which FFXIV2.0 players wont be able to see.

    PS: 50bucks for a game is alot? Seriously, i know Americas economy is bad these days. But 50bucks or 15 in monthly fee is seen as a lot of money?

    PS:@ Miguel Crespo. YES they are adding new classes/jobs to XIV. I know Summoner is confirmed,.and a few more on the way. Lots to look forward to. FFXIV is far from dead.

    Hey, Gary, you bought the box therefore when the v2.0 client is distributed there will be a free period for all players. Its on the Roadmap in the big red arrow along with PS3 Beta. You may still have Crysta when you first set up the game so you might not even have to re-invest until Summer 2013!

    Servers are not just receiving an update, but its an entirety new Server farm.
    The current graphics engine is being replaced. They are integrating parts of the Luminous engine, they even stole some devs from the Luminous project to make a brand new custom engine.

    Im glad you spent some time on this as it is a big deal for us. Part of the sub that we will be paying for beginning December will be to experience one-time-only content (7th Umbral Era = a “Cataclysm” over the next year) and they making additions knowing that they will be scrapped in v2.0.

    One last thing… Gary Tanaka has not been in charge or involved in FFXIV for over a year. He crawled his way back to FFXI. Everything good this year has been from Naoki Yoshida aka. Yoshi-P.

    I got burned pretty big by FFXIV.  I’ve NEVER bought a CE of a video game (including any WoW xpacs and I’ve played since launch), and to have it be such complete and utter crap was pretty bad.

    I was getting pretty worried about MoP from all the hate going around.  After watching Blizzcon, though I definitely feel a lot better about it and am excited even.  Signed up for the WoW Annual Pass and looking forward to trying out DIII (wasn’t even planning on playing it before) the free mount (who doesn’t love sparkle ponies) and DEFINTELY looking forward to MoP Beta.  YES PLEASE!!

    I wonder if there was a larger SWG population than a XIV pop.. I dont know why they dont scrap the title, cut their losses and start XV.. with the competition coming out.. they are going to waste so much money trying to fix a dead game, when they could be learning from mistakes and revamping an old model to a brand new game that they could launch in like 2014 when they are actually ready

    • ceewolf

      My only guess, is copyright issues….GBTV is becoming more popular and to use someone else’s music as an intro to the show may cause some legal issues..I may be wrong, but I thought Gary said Mike B. actually created the new intro to everything they do…if so, that’s pretty boss, and Mike better make more music, if that’s the case…But I don’t know, I could have dreamt that..don’t remember…I play around with music software and I wouldn’t mind making some pretty sick intros for Gary….I luv him..<3

  • DrossRocket

    I’m going to sound like a huge fan boy here. But you guys need to get your facts straight before reporting on it. 
    Gary, obviously you haven’t played XIV in some time. You have after all uninstalled it. Mike B you probably have done the same thing, are are so jaded that you aren’t willing to even give ver 2.0 a try? And the other guy hasn’t even played the game.  How are you supposed to report factual information on something you don’t know anything about? 

    SE announced two weeks ago that they have huge changes in the works for FFXIV, and that they will start the subscriptions after patch 1.20. They immediately went on a whirlwind interview campaign with leading gaming sites. Did you miss those before you recorded this show? Or did you just not care enough to dig a little deeper just so you could trash FFXIV again? 

    FYI Players will not start their subs until AFTER they have a chance to play patch 1.20 which brings with it: playable content: Dungeons, boss fights and raids. Class balance, crafting revisions, player search and Market wards: Auction house functionality. Marks the point where SE feels where this game should have launched at a year ago. And In my informed opinion (because I actually play the game) can say “Yes this is how FFXIV should  have launched.”

    As far as Ver 2.0 if you actually did a little bit of reading other than headlines. You would know, Ver 2.0 isn’t like a light switch. If not on December 12th we’re playing 1.0 and on the 13th we’re playing 2.0. 
    From here until the release of the new graphics engine we will be getting the updates to our current game. We’ll receive  a new UI, We will have mail, and delivery. We will have FF type jobs introduced.  The only thing that is switched on/off will be the graphics engine and the server structures. 

    How about you reinstall the game and actually experience it before you blast it out of the water, yet again. It’s nothing like it was at launch, hell I even left the game for 7 months while they got their shit together. 

    Just FYI:

    Currently you can invite players from anywhere (/pcmd add Player Name) p.s. you don’t have to be next to them to do that.  patch 1.20 will add player search which I’ll guess that you’ll be able to invite from that list. 

     In Ver 2.0 They will have “Cross world i.e. Cross server. i.e. You can play content with players from other servers.”

    If you bought FFXIV the version 2.0 client is free. All current, returning and new players will get 3, THREE! free months when version 2.0 launches. 

    You don’t have to re-buy a box to play ver 2.0 

    Patch 1.20 to SE marks what XIV should have launched with. Ver 2.0 is a complete revamp. The game in my opinion is very playable, and enjoyable. 

    If you were a new player coming to FFXIV now or when 1.20 goes live your opinion on whether FFXIV is worth paying for might be different than someone who has been playing for free for a year. 

    I’m just disappointed, that you three report on MMO games, yet you don’t dig very deep to find more info. Or even take a peek into a game that is free to play. But I guess FFXIV is the game to trash. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Thomas-Birdsey/573940925 Thomas Birdsey

      I am glad to see someone pointing out the errors in reporting, and giving some good accurate information.  On the other hand, you have to consider that Gary and the crew are not going to devote a lot of time to a game like ffxiv.  They can’t really afford to put resources into anything but a surface examination of any ffxiv news because most viewers just aren’t interested, and there are so many other MMOs out there that a lot of viewers ARE interested in.  

      It’s not a big game, nor will it ever be.  It will probably be an awesome game, but it will never be more than niche, which is fine with me.  I still wish they reported on it more in depth, but i’m a realist, and i’m not expecting anything

      .Gary, I stopped playing around when the XIV show went off the air.  I had the same high hopes and virtually the same complaints as you did.  I started again after 1.19 (Oct ’11) and all the combat lag issues you had were fixed.  Combat has really been tightened up.  And a lot has been added: New quests and better class balancing, dungeons, new materia system to further stimulate crafting and gear customizability, and yes chocobos.  It already feels like a different game.

      Believe it or not, the game is fun now.  The new director is no fool, he’s singlehandedly turned the game around in the past year, and i see no reason for him to fail in his vision of 2.0.   The way he is weaving the gradual transformation to version 2.0  into the actual plot of the game is pretty interesting stuff.  If i were you guys, i’d keep my eye on Director Yoshida.

      I mean, he’s introducing player housing that isn’t instanced.   Any SWG fan must like that!

      Not to mention his favorite game is Rift.  just saying.

      • DrossRocket

        They are reporting on what they think they know. Check your facts, and get some recent experience if you’re going to talk about it.  

        Gary has the game, so does Mike. It’s free to play, why not update and take a look around? Niether of them have played in 8-9 months maybe longer. The game has changed greatly in that time frame.  Yet they still report on how the game was at launch. Even if you still hate it after, at least the can true have an informed opinion of what  is beign reported.  Yet the still show game play that is 8 months old, talk about mechanics that have been overhauled already. They touch on nothing that the game has done in the last year. But focus immediatly at what SE wantsto bring in the future and the decision to start billing.

        I haven’t watched Gamebreaker since thier XIV show was canceled. (I don’t like WoW or Rift , played both) None of their other shows really interest me.  I knew that they woudl report on the SE annoucement. I thought that maybe they would delve in a little deeper and refelct on everything that Yoshi has done in the past year, and maybe even paint a brighter picture for XIV. But I knew their distaste for the game and would welcome the oppertunity to trash it yet again.

        Just disappointed.

          If you expected an in-depth review of the game and how it has developed over the past months you only set yourself up for disappointment. It’s crystal clear that they don’t care enough about the game to be bothered to look up minor details. The guys at Gamebreaker gives us the point of view of onlookers. They will call it as they see it. That was what I expected when I wrote up a summary in their forum about the changes 2.0 would entail, and I’m quite pleased with what they had to say. 

          Simply put, I wanted to know what people who weren’t playing the game thought about the news, and that’s what I got. If you thought we’d get something else you were only fooling yourself.

    Woot, that is our shell in your episode but just so you know that footage is back about 1.18. None of us knew you had the footage until someone pointed it out and showed us on your episode. XD

    This game is making great progress and I am very pleased with it and I feel it is worth the money, especially since you do get a 30 day free trial with it (of course once they start the P2P) and at the moment it’s still free until mid/late December if they don’t push it back the charging until the new year.

    They said they would allow people to try 1.20 before they start charging, which is going to be one of the huge patches that adds more.

    They have already given us OVER a year for free, and it is playable at the moment and improving every patch. This is where the game SHOULD have been when they launched and were going to start charging. Also they are going to allow all people to keep their characters/gear/levels/gil etc… everything when they switch over to the 2.0 version of the game. They are also going to allow current players to change their character/races when 2.0 comes out since they are putting in new race choices.

    It is NOT a game for everyone, but then again you can say that about every game. It is a good game and enjoyable, I feel people should give it another try.  :)

    FFXIV really is a lot different from how it played when it launched.  Should have used more recent gameplay footage, like the Ifrit Battle. (There are tons of videos on youtube.)  If you bought FFXIV when it launched and were disappointed, now is the time to give it another try before it stops being free to play.  It will be later this year that they being charging and it is honestly in a state where it is worth paying for and a lot of the bugs/issues have been resolved.
