So now that we know Final Fantasy XIII is scheduled to be on store shelves in the US and Europe on March 9 , we shift our attention to the upcoming MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV .
We were recently alerted to the fact that the official FFXIV website has been updated with some critical information for all you online enthusiasts. The big question y'all always have is, "what class am I going to be?" Well, you will have the option of a Gladiator, Archer, Lancer, Pugilist, and Marauder and the site now boasts a few details on all these classes. The Gladiators and Archers are self-explanatory and if you're a fan of the franchise, you know exactly what a Lancer is (those heavily armored guys armed with long-reaching spears and poles). The Pugilists are basically melee attackers who come equipped with claws on their hands; they kinda remind us of Berzerkers in other RPGs. As for the Marauder, we know next to nothing just yet, but we figure some of you could hazard some intelligent guesses; right now, Square-Enix is calling it one of the "surprise classes" for the game. We still don't think we're seeing the full list, though, primarily because we're not seeing much in the way of magic-using classes. There always has to be a mage or two, right? I like my Human Mage in Dragon Age: Origins (just got the Arcane Warrior skill, woo-hoo!).
So of these classes, which would you be? Remember, when it comes to games like this, you're going to be stuck with your decision for quite a long time, so choose carefully…
