FFIII Sample Boxart

Looking good so far. Hope the English version will keep the same artwork. At the back, it claims the game will support up to 16 players. Although not much has been revealed about the Mognet mail system, I'm guessing it will allow players to trade items and also take part in a turn-based "mini game". Maybe even betting on Chocobo races...

WoW, A Mini Adventure

WoW was fun to play and I preferred the much more varied environments, enemies and quests when compared to FFXI but, it didn't leave me with the same memorable experience. For my first character, I chose to be a elven druid because the elves was my favourite race during the WC3 games. It only took me less than 2 weeks or so to level him to...
