    While watching this, why is the main thing I could think of is, "Wow look all the new ways to get lagged out and crash?"

    So, if I'm interpreting things right...

    Possible graphics update.
    Swimming.
    Seasons.
    Mounts.
    Personal houses and/or villages.
    New moves.
    New instances and/or campaigns.

    Some I'm having a hard time deciding if it's just cutscene footage. There was a bit of implication that in-flight combat might become faster paced, but that could easily be one of those CS things.

    Looked pretty awesome tbh although I wonder how long it'll take to implement a lot of that.

    So is it YouTube making it all run at 10-15fps or is that as good a rate as they could have squeezed out during what had to have been the most controlled circumstances and best hardware available?

    Holy FUCK.

    Any though of FFXIV is now gone from my mind.

    Because you've already decided to quit and no amount of awesome sauce sex vids will change your mind?

    I don't care how beastly your system is right now, there's no way you're getting half your current framerate with all those lighting/shadow/particle effects seen in the video on dozens of onscreen units of varying sizes all in frame. This is clearly NCSoft toggling on all their experimental graphical effects they've had since the beginning and showing it off to attract loyalty out of a fanbase who wanted their game to look like this all along.

    It's like our own little taste of Aion Source. Maybe on BG I can get an answer as to why people that hate a game, troll their forums hardcore.

    That bored with life?

    Video was awesome.

    The graphics and the new moves seem to be similar a lot to Soul&Blade - I guess they decided to use the resources they created for that game to upgrade Aion

    Hopefully the new graphics will have a good engine. My computer is screaming as is.

    I wish that FFXIV would make a trailer as drool-worthy as this one. Gotta say I'm looking forward to this more than I am XIV.


    And Aion was just a band-aid game.

    A cursory glace at the Chronicles/Thrones of Lineage 2 will show that NCSoft has a knack for absolutely massive, game-changing updates.

    I hear this a lot. I'm starting to believe it.

    All I ever really had to compare to was FFXI, and that is a poor, poor comparison point for any game it seems.

    So we've all been beta testing the true Aion, rite?!

    Holy crap just as I was starting to lose interest in Aion.

    Anyone else reminded of Neros sword from DMC4 on the gladiator bit where he revved it up?
