The features on Final Fantasy XI’s wide-ranging anniversary site We Are Vana’diel have continued to show up in bits and pieces, and the latest installment is worth a gander for everyone. Producer Akihiko Matsui is joined by former Dragon Quest X producer Yosuke Saito, discussing the genesis of these online games, Saito’s own experiences as a player in Vana’diel as well as running an online game, and the challenges of taking over a project from a long-running producer. It’s a fascinating glimpse behind the curtain in the development process of Square-Enix.

If you don’t care about what goes on behind the scenes, of course, you can still enjoy what’s going on in front of them with the game’s upcoming equipment boosting campaign kicking off on September 13th. That means higher drop rates of items from high-end battlefields, extra rewards from Voidwatch, and other boosted drop rates and enhanced rewards. So you’ll get more boost for the same effort; what’s not to like?

I kind of wish the game wasn’t so clunky to play. It has a real nice vibe that XIV doesn’t really replicate.

I would play retail but I don’t think the monthly 10 quids worth it.

That was actually a very wholesome interview. Some serious nostalgia right there. Maybe I should start up a new account to prepare for the anniversary, because my old account is, probably, unsalvagable.
