What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy?
What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn?
Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why?

Install the game and play it! I haven't had a chance to get FFXIV yet!
2. What one thing would you love to see in A Real Reborn?
Me!
3. Which character would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why?
Rydia. She's a sassy and powerful summoner, and her character design would fit in well with the game.
4. If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him?
Whatever he wanted! He's giving me a free game (maybe)!

What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy? Hug it
What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn? If they're not already in there flying chocobos
Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why? Locke because he would fit well in this kind of game. He'd obviously be "treasure hunting" something in a loot quest.
If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him? Morrid's Coffee

1. Take it inside and remove it from the shipping packaging, then take a picture of it.
2. The Void. It's influences are felt, perhaps, but I would love to see it interacting with the world, and have the player take part in rituals to hold it back or seal it away.
3. Frimelda Lotice. Auron. Hurdy. Cid Highwind and Shera. Matron Edea. Luzzu. Beatrix. Biggs and Wedge (from both FFVII and FFVIII). Minwu.
4. Vanilla Latte.

1. Scream at it in disbelief.
2. Honestly I'm most interested in seeing how they improved upon their last attempt. For a dev to admit they messed up so badly they're willing to make an entire new game is pretty monumental, and it'd be interesting to see their results.
3. BoB because reasons.
4. You want me to buy his coffee as well as my own? What am I, made of bills?

1. What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy?
Unwrap it, have sex with it, then clean it up, put a fancy dress on it and take her out on a date around town.

2. What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn?
The biggest thing is how good of an MMO is. I have never played an MMO before, so it would be a very interesting way to begin.

3. Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why?
Snow and Fang, because I loved them in the XIII series, and felt like they weren't utilized enough in XIII-2 and LR.

4. If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him?
Depends on the day. If it's a smoldering hot day, an iced cappuccino. If it's a cold day, a cappuccino.

What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy?
I would probably look through the artbook first thing. That or watch the movie that comes with it explaining the Seventh Umbral Era.

What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn?
I would love to see an expansion in the future that has a story reminiscent of how good people say the story was in XI.

Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why?
I want a cameo by Moombas just because they are my favorite FF creatures. The only other cameo I can think of would be Gilgamesh, mainly because he is one of the few FF characters that would make since to just pop up in XIV's world I think.

If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him?
I don't like coffee whatsoever, so I have no idea what would even be considered good. I'll say a white chocolate mocha, and I'm only saying that because that is literally the only kind of coffee I can even think of the name for, haha.

What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy? I would take numerous photos of my new shiny item and then I'd probably consider playing it.
What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn? This one is easy, I want to see moogles (moogles are already there, but I haven't played the game yet so I haven't seen them.
Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why? Ramza from FFT. Tactics is my favorite game and I would love to see the main character from that game walking around in XIV.
If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him?
Caramel Iced Mocha with soy milk.

1. What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy? Constantly show it to my girlfriend until she gets fed up with me getting excited about it
2. What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn? I'd love a few more quests hearkening back to 1.x.
3. Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why? Umaro. Definitely Umaro. Why wouldn't you wanna fight a great battle outside of Crystal Tower with Umaro jumping down and fighting with you?
4. If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him? Any coffee he wants. It's Yoshi-P for gawds sake! But I would recommend a Twinings English Breakfast Tea instead :jess:

1. What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy?
-Play it :smug: I've got a shiny new azure blue PS3 coming in the mail. The timing would be perfect. On top of the fact that I've been wanting to play an MMO on a console.


2. What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn?
-The ability to somehow get or work for the missable items. I'll never get a Cait Sith because I didn't pre-order, and I'll never get the Snow Villiers outfit because my only character at the time of the LR cross over was female. I want those!


3. Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why?
-Noctis. Perhaps this will actually happen down the line! I can see it coming if they wanted to promote Final Fantasy XV down the line like they just did Lightning Returns. It may also give us a little insight into the character and hype us up if it happens before the release.


4. If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him?
-We'd make something with the coffee beans that were discontinued from the original Final Fantasy XIV:

Coffee Beans - Gamer Escape's Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV, FF14) wiki (http://ffxiv.gamerescape.com/wiki/Coffee_Beans)

And probably drink it out of mugs like these:

Ff14 Coffee Mugs | Ff14 Travel Mugs - CafePress (http://www.cafepress.com/+ff14+mugs)

Oh snap, what an awesome give-away! Too bad I already have this (sans Yoshi-P's lovely signature).

How could we not be excited? I'm actually just about to buy a PS3 as well, so getting this would just be the icing on the cake towards my purchase.

If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him?
My new copy of the game and I will curl up in bed together with a nice pot of herbal tea, and I will drink my tea to calm my ecstatic nerves over winning such a cool game, and then I will drink the game's tea. Games (notoriously) do not drink tea.
Content and cameos that make nods to specific Final Fantasys, like expansions that have VII-related content, IX-related content, and so on.
XIV versions of characters from The World Ends With You or maybe Star Ocean because TWEWY was such a fun and innovative game, and I love all the personalities from Star Ocean, particularly Ashton Anchors.
Yoshi-P and I would curl up in bed and have affogatos with hazelnut coffee gelato. I would eat/drink mine hurriedly because an affogato is delicious, and then I would drink/eat Yoshi-P's. Hey, he should have hurried up.

1. Film an unboxing of it and breathe extra heavy as seems to be quite the thing in all the popular unboxings on Youtube ^^

2. Vieras! By far the greatest race of the final fantasy multiverse in my humble opinion.

3. Shuyin from X-2. My favourite design for a character, (was obsessed with his hair), and I found his tragedy to be so incredibly moving and would like a little more insight into it.

4. A chocobomoca, I'll make it exist whatever the cost, Yoshi-P needs some chocobo bounce in him to start off his busy mornings!!

Invictus
03-12-2014, 03:09 AM
1. Play it!
2. Friendly online community.
3. Kain and Terra from IV and VI, respectively. No real reason than they are my favorite characters.
4. Blueberry Cream flavored Coffee.

I'd like someone to make that :monster: Or at least have it be one of the inspired drinks on the drunken moogle website.

What's the first thing you'll do with your shiny new copy? Use the reward codes and then put it safely away in a place where it won't get damaged.
What one thing would you love to see in A Realm Reborn? Ninjas.
Which other characters would you like to see make a cameo appearance and why? I don't really mind which characters, as long as they do it tactfully. They wouldn't just copy/paste character models from other games into FF14 with no regard for the games' vastly different art styles. They should fit within the world of the game, even if it is obvious to the player who it is supposed to be. To name a character just in order to answer this question, Shantotto, because everyone seems to love her, and she won the most recent FFXI official NPC popularity contest.
If you could have coffee with Yoshi-P, what coffee would you buy him? An extra large triple espresso mocha latte. No sleep for you!

Thank you to everyone involved! Square Enix, everybody at EyesonFF, Freya (for being very patient during the process) and especially Mr. Yoshi-P! I had to take a picture in the light to do his signature justice! I hope someone can pass along the message to him that I think he is the most handsome man ever.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to fulfill a contest winning promise.
