Lal-Awful... !!!

For the last several months I have tortured Jay night and day telling him that I wanted to be a Lalafell in Final Fantasy XIV. Well, I just finished watching some (well done creation) videos and ... the Lalafell look LOL-Awful!!! They only have four hairstyles. The voices are obnoxious -- I almost had heart failure when voice #3 played for the Plainsfolk male sample. That was just creepy. And that hair with the buns and braids that I was so gaga over? From the back ... she looks like Mikey Mouse. No thanks.

Think I'm pulling your leg? Feel free to watch these but beware... The lalafell have a 50% chance of being cute and a 50% chance of being creepy. What do you think?

Male Plainsfolk -- beware very creepy voice #3!!

Mikey Mou-- I mean, a female Dunesfolk Lalafell

Bow before my cuteness!

No, its not (only) a video about Lalafell. Actually I have not found a good emote video for them yet. But I am really impressed with the Miqo'te emotes -- a lot of them remind me of ones that I liked in Phantasy Star Universe. Have a look for yourself and tell me whether you think that these further show that a Miqo'te is the right choice. ^.^ Enjoy!

FFXIV: Character Creation Videos!!

Hey guys! Today I am going to round up the coolest / cutest Final Fantasy XIV creation videos that I can find. This started by finding an Amazing Miqo'te video where the person using the character creator actually had the camera come around to show -- oh I cannot stop squeeing with joy! -- how their hair looks in the back, in full detail, for each style. Yay!

Here is a great Female Hyur Video, chosen for much the same reason: extreme attention to detail where hairstyles, colors, highlights and eyes are concerned. I love the ponytail that is encircled by braids, and noticed 'Yuna', 'Paine' and 'Lightning' were all present as hairstyles. :p

Well, Jay, there are some very sexy options for male Hyur... ;) I had a lot of fun watching this video. Oh, and it shows the great detail for customization that the last two did as well. Thought I might want to mention that. Enjoy... ^.^

And now a little something for Shawn. The Duskwight (Now called Shader) Elezen look awesome. I don't think they are for me (at least not the guys -- haven't checked the girls yet) but they certainly have a certain edge of cruelty and arrogance about them, the way all well designed drow do. I think you'll like this, buddy. ^.^

O....M....G!!!! I found Red Galka / Hellsguard / Lohenguard!!! Have a look at this, they look very cool. You're going to have either a very easy or very hard choice, Jay. These are like the complete antithesis of the midlander hyur. Enjoy! ^.^
