Here's a look at how my systems are holding up running Final Fantasy X|V & streaming with settings maxed out. Check out my results in the 2 live videos I made plus a bonus look at BatRastered's score.
When I first started to download the benchmark yesterday, it told me it would take 3 days at 1 point. This game is going to get railed on day 1. I recently purchased a brand new laptop, hoping I’d be able to stream the Final Fantasy from different locations. As long as the internet was ample. Well I tried it from home today, where the internet is ample. Here are the results from the laptop. This clip is from the Twitch stream.
Now for the desktop streaming the Fantasy.
Special bonus, here’s what it looked like on BatRastered’s stream.
I’m disappointed with the laptop’s performance, but I’ll mess with the settings & see how it goes. If I can’t get it to my satisfaction, I may just send this Jimmy back. Too expensive for it to NOT do what I want.
*Update we have improved the performance on the Laptop, but running Xsplit at the same time maxes out the CPU.
Thanks for reading.

Tonight Gouki.com editor GoukiJones was supposed to be pwnn some Final Fantasy XIV. Not writing a story about how Square Enix doesn't even have the right time of day on their news page.
Have few drinks, play a few games of Halo Wars and jump on the Final Fantasy for a few hours. Until your knees are so sore that you pass out from the pain six or seven hours later. That was the plan tonight. Just like the last three nights. But here I am writing this story because I don't know what the hell is going on with the FF14 right now.
Some of the Square Enix forums that are managed by users and you have to be logged in and accepted in that group to even read. Are saying things like you have to download files off of another website. Red and blue and bittorrents and megauplaod. WTF is this? Why doesn't Square Enix have a fix for us. That's when I came across this piece of news from their website.
The Square Enix official news site about the FF14 reads the wrong day. It's only September 5, 2010.
So apparently the servers are down now for emergency maintenance. This has also been going on since early AM. Allegedly.
Don't download no blue or red files off of megaupload. Wtf is a blue and red file?
My big issue here is the Square Enix website. Can we get the date and time right? This is exactly what I was talking about in my other story about the beta. The Square Enix website is BASS ACWARDS. They have the date of Japan and the hours of the Westcoast United States. I don't actually know when any of that news is posted or when the updates are going to take place. It's impossible to get any serious or real help and I'm going to be paying for a monthly service?
Also I go to the Beta site and log in. It redirects me to the regular Square Enix page with your profile and all that stuff. From there I don't know where to go. I close the page and click the direct link back to the beta site and boom redirected the regular page. Am I nubfarm? Is anybody else completely annoyed by this? Please tell that this game hasn't been rushed out before Blizzard can announce the next WOW at Blizzcon. That would be ridiculous.
Fuck it. Now what? All units?

Square Enix has released a new video showing of the outside of the towns in Final Fantasy 14. Looks good, still can't wait to see what combat looks like & if I can play by myself. I have no friends. :(
Read full story...
FNJimmy and I got a little private time with Final Fantasy XIV in 3D, with my best friend Jack Daniels.
FNJimmy and I got into the private hands on room of Final Fantasy XIV. I played it in 3D and let me just say it looks absolutely amazing. The problem with 3D gaming of course (and this isn’t the only time you’re going to hear me say this) I don’t want to have a $5000 dollar set up to play it. The glasses and 3D on screen were not abrasive at all. Although I don’t know how I would feel after playing Final Fantasy for XIV umpteen hours.
As far as the actual gameplay of Final Fantasy XIV it was just like Final Fantasy XI, I’m afraid that this game may just be a graphical update. I ran through the town and saw the shops and few NPC’s all very familiar to anyone that has played FFXI. When I got out into the field with a group to fight some enemies, again felt just like FFXI.
Final Fantasy XIV or Star Wars The Old Republic? The variables here would be release dates, friends online, monthly pricing, and system. I don’t know when either game is coming out for sure, but I’ll be giving both a try when they are released. I think my friends online are gonna be split. Whoever has the cheaper service is just gonna receive bonus points. As far as systems go, I know I’ll be starting either one on the PC so I guess that does matter. Here’s a short clip of FNJimmy and myself hands on with Jack Daniels errrrrrrr Final Fantasy XIV.
This is a video that has been circulating the net about the difference between the alpha and beta versions of Final Fantasy XIV. Hello?! WTF? When the game is actually released, we won’t be playing either version, so who cares? The graphics are nice though.
This is the North American E3 2010 Trailer. Makes my nipples hard Jimmy.
My brain continues to argue with itself over the Final Fantasy XIV. I have so many issues here Jimmy.
First of all it's on the PC straight away for $74.99 and yes I have to get the collector's edition. If I do not get the collector's edition and really love the game and play it for years. I'll be real upset with myself. Plus I need that Onion Helm and whatever other goodies it comes with.
The Benchmark test: I recently ran the benchmark test, but before I can tell you my results let me share a few tidbits with you. I had to re-install an older version of DirectX to just run the benchmark. Wtf? Then it ran smoothly, but my score well was below the minimum. Maybe because my computer was running an older version of DirectX? My computer is brand new, I have a video card that I bought this year for like $200. It should work right?
What if it doesn't? My computer is how I work[attempt to make a living], I can't work[attempt to make a living] all morning and then have an all night pwnfest on the FF14 and run my computer for 20 hours a day. That shit will fry. Then I'll be addicted for sure by that point, with no FF14 and now no computer to work[attempt to make a living]. So that's that problem. Solution ... be prepared to upgrade.
Waiting for the PS3: Wait until March? Are you crazy? Don't forget about the Onion Helm. Oh and there's the 6 month headstart the rest of the Jimmys will get on you. This time around, I want to start at the very beggining with everyone else.
Backwards compatible PS3: I have one of those rare PS3's that is backwards compatible and is worth thousands according to Ebay. I don't really want to break that either. The current plan is to buy it for the PC and try to control myself. Then when March rolls around, buy another, yes a second PS3 just to play FF14.
I was super addicted to Final Fantasy XI and I know I will get hooked on this one fo sho. The game looks amazing, there are no words for the beauty of it. The Making of a realm vidoc series is absolutely mindboggling. When I think about the jobs and the world and the monsters. It's without a doubt I'm going to get lost with this game.
Estrada says he is getting this game. Gorilla Warbear is still playing FF11 because he was hoping for a Beta key for FF14 or to get something when FF14 comes out. Well he's gonna get something, but I don't care too much for it. Hermes’ Shoes. “Named after an elder god, all but forgotten in the modern age, these gold-tipped shoes have been crafted with the lightest of leathers, making them optimal for use by heralds and noterunners.”
We've already touched on setting up our squad and putting ourselves in different roles for crafting and fighting. This is not good, I'm already drawing charts in bed at night before I go to sleep. I can't stop thinking about which way I want my character to go.
I can't even decide if I want to be a little Jimmy(Lalafell) or an Elf Jimmy(Elezen.) I was a little Jimmy in FF11. I don't want to be a human or the big Gorilla Warbear looking thing. The elves look cool, but I don't know what job I would focus on. At least the little Jimmys look cool doing anything in the game, so I'll probably pick one of them. So then it's decided. I'll a "Lalafell" in FF14.
As far as Jobs go forget about it. I have no idea. I might just level up all different kinds at the beggining. It depends on how many friends I have and if we are actually leveling up together to go do missions and stuff. I like healing, because I don't trust anybody else doing it. I will most definitely choose a trade that will make a lot of money, like medicines or food. Consumable items are the way to go.
It's official, I'm going to pre-order the Final Fantasy XIV. I'm going to promise myself to not let it get out of hand. I can not break my PC, must survive on it until March. Lalafell healer/thief and cooking/medicine master! Look for me when the game comes out. Want to get on the same planet with me? Leave a comment and lets start the Gouki Guild! Don't be a Jimmy!

Reshaping of the clothes?! Sold! And if you keep playing FF11 you get stuff.
Ok for you Jimmys out there still playing Final Fantasy XI and who intend to sill play when Final Fantasy XIV comes out there's some good news for you. When you create a character on FF14 and still have an active and connected account on FF11 you will get some flashy boots. Hermes' Shoes to be exact check it out!
BIG EXCITEMENT!! The description of the boots doesn't exactly say what they do. I would assume you move a little faster, but I don't know what anything of the FF14 lingo is yet. Here's what Square-Enix says. "Named after an elder god, all but forgotten in the modern age, these gold-tipped shoes have been crafted with the lightest of leathers, making them optimal for use by heralds and noterunners."
Also, you're FF11 monthly fee will drop from $12.95 to $7.00 as long as both accounts stay active and you aren't using a trial. The sneaky catch here is " This offer will remain in effect until January 2011"
And finally the name carry over has been explained to me. I don't like it. It's your old name and the planet you were from. So I would be Basterboi Garuda ... hmmmm that does have a nice ring to it. Maybe I should think about it. Here's how it is explained:
When prompted, upon selecting the FINAL FANTASY XI character name as the FINAL FANTASY XIV playable character name, the transferred name will be the FINAL FANTASY XI player character name + FINAL FANTASY XI world name the character resides on.
o FINAL FANTASY XI Player Character Name: Destiny
o FINAL FANTASY XI World Name: Odin
o The resulting FINAL FANTASY XIV character name: Destiny Odin

Oh you didn't know? I get addicted to MMO's rather easily & my entire life shuts down. Here's my running thru the same dungeons a few times over the last couple of days. It's the only way to get certain monies in the game. I need it yo.
Try not to look like a nuab, but I can't help. The Leroy Jenkins in me is hard to contain.
Ok so that was try #2, getting better? Faster?
Gotta get them mythos thingys right? Any means necessary. Don't be a Jimmy!
Thanks for watching.

I call them le-ve. If you have the leves to spare, you can save a ton of money & time on leveling craft. The trade craft leves give the best rewards. Crystals, Cash & EXP. A lot of EXP.
Obviously this is a technique I'll be waying thru the rest of the FFXIV life cycle. 18K EXP is easily worth 5K. Somebody gotta jack up the price. Might as well be me while I level up off of these nuabs. Don't be a Jimmy!
Thanks for watching.
In this clip watch GoukiJones lvl 50 WAR 50% DL take down Ifrit with some help from his [FC] TAW. Don't be a Jimmy!
1 of these days, I'll get the audio right in 1 of these set ups. Thanks for watching. Please leave any questions or comments below. Nnnnnnnnnnnnuab!
