Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

This Might Be Even MORE Than You Want to Know...

At E3, Square Enix gave press enough time in Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn to get a rudimentary feel for the game, and then get their asses handed to them by a massive boss. Read our hands-on preview for the scoop.

The dude behind 2PixelWide is in the FFXIV: A Realm Reborn beta test, in which he'll have more than a 10 minute boss fight to see firsthand whether the reboot has pulled FFXIV from the ashes. He has a lot to say. About everything. But if you're a fan of the Final Fantasy franchise, and you want to know every...little...detail about the beta, then this video is for you--all 30+ minutes of it. Also, because the NDA prohibits sharing actual video or audio from the game, but doesn't prohibit screenshots, this is a tale told in images with voice commentary.

Did you make it all the way through? Congratulations! That's dedication. Drop a comment and let me know whether you think the FFXIV reboot is something you're eager to explore.
