Elsword has a third job path for Ain, and boy wait until you see what it is. Actually, we’re not quite sure what it is, other than it presumably involves a lot of the kicking of heinies.

Armored Warfare is bringing out a new map with Update 0.19: the Chemical Plant. As you might assume, this is a highly industrialized map with storage tanks, buildings, and even a railway.

Steparu has a look at Dragon Nest 2’s closed beta, including character creation and gameplay. Check it out:

What is Guiness’s rubric for an ‘original piece of music?’ Because 384 seems pretty low. Even Runescape has well over 1000 tracks.

Well to put it in perspective, the three FFXIV soundtracks for A Realm Reborn, After The Fall and Heavensward contain a total of about 14 hours of music. And that’s still not all the music in the game.

Wait so the Final Fantasy XIV thing does that mean if I am part of those credits I can claim to be part of a world record ?

It occurred to me that I never got far enough to actually see my name on the credits lol. So after a bit of googlefu I found this video showing the entire thing including all the names and sure enough I am in there.

Thought I might share the video for anyone else who wants to claim to be a record breaker hehe. The names start at about the 37 minute mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3QbHvJIX0o

Gratz! I didn’t know you could get your name in the credits if you beat the main storyline.

It was something you could apply for if you subbed to FFXIV 1.0 for a period of 90 days or more before it suspended it’s subscription to do the ARR 2.0 revamp. It helped that you also got a couple of other benefits such as a free chocobo and also a lifetime discount on the subscription fee.

Even so it was a nice gesture to make to the players that stuck with them through the 1.0 dark times :-)
