Another blast of FFXIV!

So I have really been enjoying Final Fantasy XIV. I think it is a MMO that is most compatible with my inner gamer. I love the simple yet beautiful aesthetics of the game. I like the quest themes and story style. It is definitely a Final Fantasy. The acting, the personalities, the traditions. The atmosphere of the environments really speak out to me too. I will admit, it doesn't have the BEST graphics or what is now called "next-gen" technology, but I appreciate what they were able to accomplish with the engine and limitations they have. I still want to know how to make a metal shader like how they have it in the game. I read an article in Polycount about something similar to what they do, but I still can't figure out how to do it myself.

I love the sunset in this game! It is truly based on the timing and view angle of your character.
Sleep time! I really like the sleeping [and wake up, when you log back in] animation if you log out at the Inn.

Btw, GDC in 2 weeks. Eep!
