Over the last couple of days tones of alpha impression and screenshots have been hitting the net. From what I have seen this game looks amazing and I cannot wait to try it out. If you are interested in reading some impressions about how the Alpha test is going check out these posts:
Famitsu site update, Alpha Impressions @ FFXIVCore
4Gamer Alpha Impressions @ FFXIVBase
I will be trying to post more links when I have time to do some research. Until then if anyone has some good sites for Final Fantasy XIV information put it in the comment section for all to read.
