Back in 2004, I gained a shameful near 30 pounds. This weight gain was thanks to a good five months straight of crushing pizzas and playing Final Fantasy XI non-stop on the Ps2.
Hey, being unemployed and going through a shitty break-up will make you do these kinds of things.

Anyway, while I may not have any interest in playing Final Fantasy XIV (or really ANY MMORPG ever again) because I don’t want it owning my soul, I know that many of you do. Well, Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XIV will be released around the world on September 30, 2010 for Windows PC.

Now, if you’re really geeked for this game, you’ll be happy to know that there’s also a “Collector’s Edition” that will be released a full 8 days earlier than the standard edition, on September 22. If you pre-order said Collector’s Edition, you’ll be rewarded with codes for exclusive in game items, you’ll get a documentary DVD, a Security Token, a Travel Journal, and a whole mess of other useless junk that will make fanboys and gals cream their jeans.

“This September, players around the world will join together to explore the fascinating and exciting realm of Eorzea,” said Hiromichi Tanaka, Executive Producer of Final Fantasy XIV. “We’re presenting players with a new style of online gameplay that we know will please avid fans of online games, while welcoming more casual gamers with a variety of gameplay and story-driven content.”

The Windows PC Standard Edition will retail for $49.99, and the PC Collector’s Edition will run you $74.99.
The Final Fantasy XIV Playstation 3 version won’t be available until early March of next year, with pricing to be announced at a later time.
