However I, like many others, had an issue when trying to download. So I searched the web for an answer and sure enough there was one. However, it was on the Lodestone forums specifically and I can only imagine that not everyone goes to the forums often (if ever). So I figured I would make a single post showing specifically how to fix the issue. Below you will find the fix for what seems to be the main error everyone is encountering.

Note: Patch can be downloaded now. If having trouble (version checker error) follow the instructions below.

go to Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV – A Realm Reborn\ open up FFXIV_BOOT.cfg in word pad or notepad.

you should see this

<FINAL FANTASY XIV Boot Config File>

<Version>

the line in bold is the key change the 0 to a 1 and it forces it to check version upon opening the launcher.

The Pros and Cons of Elder Scrolls Online http://www.gamersciz.com/pros-cons-elder-scrolls-online/ http://www.gamersciz.com/pros-cons-elder-scrolls-online/#comments Wed, 05 Mar 2014 17:27:11 +0000 http://www.gamersciz.com/?p=4055 As a young adult after working all day you would love to relax with a beautiful game to play. And the game in my mind that will release your tension is elder scrolls online. With the Elder Scrolls Online release date approaching fast there is much expectation towards this mmorpg game. Some avid gamers have even gotten the chance to try it out. From many game forums the  Elder Scrolls Online gameplay has been fantastic as most gamers who played it gave it the thumbs upExciting as this sounds some gamers like some of the features of the game but not all of them. So here are some of the features that the young adults said they like and also some features they don’t like.

Advantages

Video game combat

As a gamer when you are using a melee fighter you will be able to hit multiple targets within your reach. This is because melee attacks are very disorganized giving more chance to hitting the enemy. Melee fighting is a form of very close combat and the chances of you hitting your enemy are very high.

Engrossing

From the beautiful surrounding environment in elder scrolls online you will be captivated by how well it is designed. And the well written plots and tasks that you will be performing are just captivating.

Minimalist

When you are enjoying the elder scrolls online gameplay the user interface is free from any distractions. So you can customize your character with so much ease without too many things distracting you. And that means you don’t have close some unnecessary boxes in the ui as the design is quite great thus making the user interface very effective and easy for gamers to understand. Another advantage of the ui is that as a player you be captivated by the surroundings as there is nothing to distract in the user interface.

Quests with a purpose

With this mmorpg game you will be given quests that will satisfy any avid gamer of elder scrolls online or any rpg games you have played. You will rarely be in a position where you will be doing repetitive tasks as all jobs will have some sort of story line to it giving the game good depth.

The Lore Library

For those gamers that love reading then you will like this feature as every book, piece of paper will be stored in this library. So for those gamers who love reading stuff this will be good for you.

Crafting

As a gamer it will come as a surprise that you will not have to take hours doing boring quests just to move up your skill. So from the get go you will be able to craft items which are at par with the ones found from drop or are much better.

Incredible Freedom of Progression

When you are starting you will have four choices to make. From these four choices you will be able to build your character and also be able to progress in crafting your armour. The developers have taken time in this aspect so that as a gamer you will be enjoying the game months to come.

Progress

As the player progresses during the game your armour and your weapons will progress with you. So if the player is in a higher level his appearance will be different from that when he was at a lower level. In the game there will be a variety selection of weapons but they fall into light, medium and heavy armour.

So do try to have different types of armour as this helps with your progression during the game. So do focus on one armour type as you will be given a bonus. This feature where you can customize your armour makes the game engrossing as the gamer will check to see how each customization of the armour will affect his performance.

Change your appearance

Some of the developers of the rpg game have commented that there will be special spells that will be able to change your appearance. This can be very useful when you have a quest that requires you to go into an enemy territory to kill someone or to do something important.To learn more about changing appearance to this link.

Disadvantages

Elder scrolls online play

As a gamer you will only start to enjoy the Melee fighting after you play like hours. Only after playing more hours will you start to enjoy the game and what it can truly offer. For those who are not the patient types give it a try you will not regret it. The elder scrolls online play will be interesting once you start to progress through the stages and start to do some armour and weapons crafting.

Armour

With the beautiful surroundings that you will explore you thought they would have taken time to improve the graphics of the armour. The armour looks not too refined and minimalist, more like just somebody painted on it. May be to help in loading times but they should have done better.

Slow MMORPG

The game is not that really enjoyable according to some players in the starting stages. You will be swinging that word and doing a lot of blocking in the opening levels. You will only start to enjoy the game when you start to craft your weapons. This might be from level 10 and above so be patient as the elder scrolls online play will start to get interesting in later stages where the video game combat and Melee fighting will be captivating.

Not that Lootable

Not everything from books, barrels to dead bodies can be looted a feature that should have been there is the ability to look into the bag and see if there is something useful for you. So with all these reasons I hope you have weighed your pros and cons and you will buy the game test it for yourself and judge how the game is. Until then, we must all wait for Elder Scrolls Online release date to enjoy the game.

5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Miss the Elder Scrolls Online http://www.gamersciz.com/5-reasons-shouldnt-miss-elder-scrolls-online/ http://www.gamersciz.com/5-reasons-shouldnt-miss-elder-scrolls-online/#comments Wed, 19 Feb 2014 16:45:52 +0000 http://www.gamersciz.com/?p=4047 The Elder Scrolls is one of the longest running computer role playing games out there, and the Elder Scrolls Online has been one of the most anticipated MMORPGs to come to the market in years. For those players who aren’t sure whether or not they want to check out the latest game in the series, there are some compelling reasons why it isn’t one to be missed.

1. The Personal Arc

The Elder Scrolls is known for all of the attention it pays to the individual plot. While the upcoming game is an MMO, there is a lot of talk about how much of the character’s personal story and plot it’s going to focus on. Regardless of the sex, race, and class the player ends up choosing, the game is going to make sure that everyone who sets foot into the world is going to feel like a real hero.

2. The Familiarity of Tamriel

In addition to the attention every, individual player’s character receives, the world of Tamriel has made its mark on the fan base’s hearts. For those wishing to brush up on the ins and outs of Tamriel, this site can be a good place to start reading. The world has been explored in books, and in a slew of games that have been released over the the years, which means that a lot of players are eager to get back into the world and start playing in a familiar sandbox. With a huge amount of lore, familiar creatures, and a shared history that players both new and old can enjoy, the Elder Scrolls Online is holding tightly to its roots.

3. Player Versus Player

While not all players enjoy player versus player action, those who do will find there’s an entire province in the Elder Scrolls Online that’s dedicated explicitly to players who want to fight other players. With networks of caves, fields that stretch away to the horizon, and with huge ruins and battlements to battle upon, there’s a huge opportunity for a truly unique experience.

There are two draws to number three. The first is that most games simply won’t allow a player versus player aspect, which a lot of players find restrictive, and far from realistic. Given the size of the arena that’s being used in the Elder Scrolls Online though, it’s possible to have massive player versus player battles on a scale that would be impossible in practically any other game that’s been made up until this point in time.

4. New and Unique Classes

According to Esoclassguides.com , Elder Scrolls games in the past have had a very open character creation system that’s had an option class choice, but it’s been more focused on skill use. The more a character uses a skill, the more that skill grows. The Elder Scrolls Online will have a slightly more restrictive class system, but the game is making sure that nothing is gear-based. There are no classes that focus on wearing one kind of armor over another, or using a certain type of weapon over another. That said, while this system might be different from what’s been done in the past, it’s definitely broader than what most other MMORPGs do with their characters.

5. Dynamic Combat

Unlike many RPGs, the Elder Scrolls Online will use dynamic combat. This system takes into account everything from facing and swing position to fast-twitch reflexes and weapon style. This system has its disadvantages, but for those who enjoy a challenge and a more realistic style of combat, this method can be very thoroughly enjoyable and engaging. Even better though, it means that players with skill, or with experience points, can both participate in fun and meaningful ways to keep the blood pounding good and hard.

The Elder Scrolls Online is, in many ways, the next step in the game’s evolution. People are discussing in the forum that the game is going to get better rather than tossing the classic elements that won the hearts of so many players. By keeping the core of what makes the Elder Scrolls so much fun, and adding a new level of fun and technological beauty, Elder Scrolls Online should be the best game yet.

FFXIV – Coil Turn 5 (Best Run Misfits Group 3) – OT POV http://www.gamersciz.com/ffxiv-coil-turn-5-best-run-misfits-group-3-ot-pov/ http://www.gamersciz.com/ffxiv-coil-turn-5-best-run-misfits-group-3-ot-pov/#comments Thu, 16 Jan 2014 20:52:45 +0000 http://www.gamersciz.com/?p=4033

This is group 3 from the Misfits FC of Cactuar. I am doing the off-tank as the paladin as our decked out warrior is taking main-tank. We just started trying T5 last week and we have already come this far. We hope to take it down in the next couple weeks.

*This was streamed on Twitch.tv/gamersciz using Xsplit

As of late I plan to stream most all of my gaming on twitch.tv/gamersciz. Last night my Coil group was learning Turn 5 in Final Fantasy XIV. This is our second week trying to attempt Turn 5. We are obviously still learning but you can tell we are getting much better with the mechanics and collaboration necessary to succeed. We plan to try it again next week in which I will be streaming it again on my Twitch channel. I also tend to play Counter-Strike: Source and Team Fortress 2 often, and I will be streaming most all of those gameplay sessions as well. If you enjoyed this video and would like to see more of Final Fantasy or another game then simply comment below your thoughts and let me know what game you want to see streamed.

R4 Cards: A Catalyst Enhancing Your Console Gaming Adventure http://www.gamersciz.com/r4-cards-catalyst-enhancing-console-gaming-adventure/ http://www.gamersciz.com/r4-cards-catalyst-enhancing-console-gaming-adventure/#comments Tue, 07 Jan 2014 00:02:58 +0000 http://www.gamersciz.com/?p=4022 R4 Cards: A Catalyst Enhancing Your Console Gaming Adventure

Console games since their evolution have always been high on trend among a huge mass of people. The addictive games, the adrenaline pumping moves, the thrilling experience and the never ending fun just keep you simply glued over your gaming seat. Isn’t it? There’s no shortage of games for a hardcore gamer. Indeed they can be accessed anywhere, either you are at home, at your work or on the move.

 
R4

Console games are not meant just for gaming any more. You can have a lot more from these gaming sources of the new era. You can conveniently download a movie for instance or you can play the music. If that’s not enough then you can even get some add-ons for your device to install various entertaining aspects as per your needs. Believe it; most of them are available for free!

There are times when you find problems encountering with your console devices whether you are busy with your favorite game or an online audio.   Doesn’t this create a sense of irritation in your mind? Of course, you reach out for a proper solution to fix your problem may be sometimes to alter the software or sometimes to alter the entire console. However, sometimes spending pennies upon such solutions doesn’t prove out to be affordable.

Fortunately, some prominent solutions to deal with such issues have already been developed much earlier. R4i 3DS is among one of them. This has been a better alternative for a flash card which was earlier in high use. With the gradual increase in time, various versions of R4i card slots have been designed. It means that you have the options to choose the card as per your console.

What Exactly Is An R4i Card?

This is a storage device which stores the data including images, text files, audios, videos and other sorts of games.  It helps to enhance the memory and storage capacity of consoles. To be more precise, the files being installed in your console runs directly from these card slots. Thus, the main memory of your console remains free, allowing you to install more number of files very conveniently. Additionally, the card slot has been designed extremely user friendly. Hence operating your console with an installed R4i card won’t be a fuss.

The Architecture-R4_2

R4i cards have been uniformly designed to support Micro SD portability. This in turn also integrates the storage capacity of your console device. No matter whether you are a frequent player or just a beginner, you can be free from the panics of memory issue. In addition, this card slot is also available with various memory capacities which range from 2 GB to a maximum of 32 GB or even more than that.

The Source-

R4i basically comes from the Nintendo family, a brand well renowned worldwide for its incredible ranges of gaming products. As far as R4i is concerned, Nintendo has developed various versions of this slot. Some of them include- r4i sdhc, r4i sdhc 3ds card, r4 for 3ds, r4dsi, wood r4 and many more. Every new R4 card slot is an updated version of its previous R4 card.

Features and Affordability-

These cards have been designed with various features and specifications. Other than enhancing the memory capacity of the console, they are also featured with ready to use options. Apparently, you can start using them as soon as they are installed in your console. The next feature is concerned with its durability where it hits the gong again. R4 has always been an unrivalled slot card in terms of its long service.

Precautionary Steps-

Every branded product has two aspects; either it’s real or its fake. Let’s face it. It’s truly hard to determine the authenticity of the product in today’s era. This is a fact that R4 has managed to achieve its popularity in the gaming world. However at the same time, many fake R4i cards are also available online at highly cheap rates. It is therefore recommended to be completely convinced before making a final deal. After all, it’s about your gaming.

Mobile Gaming Continues to Improve and Expand http://www.gamersciz.com/mobile-gaming-continues-improve-expand/ http://www.gamersciz.com/mobile-gaming-continues-improve-expand/#comments Wed, 04 Dec 2013 18:10:24 +0000 http://www.gamersciz.com/?p=4011 As an avid video gamer, I’ve watched over the years as companies have tried to tap into the mobile market dominated by Nintendo and its ever-evolving Gameboy franchise. From the original “brick” through the variously colored Gameboy Pockets up to the 3DS, the transformations have been thrilling to watch and play. Similarly, it’s been fascinating to see how so many competitors have fallen short. Whether it was the Sega Game Gear or the Nokia N-Gage, nothing could catch on like Nintendo’s handheld beast.

But things began to shift when cellphones transitioned over to smartphones. Devices like the iPhone and Android came equipped with basically everything you could need in a computer, never mind a phone. And as you might have guessed, they came with plenty of options for gamers, too. This was a huge boost for gamers who wanted everything in a neat little package. That’s not to say that Gameboys and their DS counterparts haven’t been small enough to carry around. But the thing is, when you can have everything in “one” device instead of several, why wouldn’t you just stick with that one device?

Of course, you won’t get the exact same experience and advantages of playing on a 3DS as you will on your smartphone. But developers have come such an incredibly long way to appease the on-the-go demographic. Everything from Grand Theft Auto to Call of Duty has made its way to the smartphone platform. And they’re becoming easier to play thanks to handy accessories that have enhanced the experience tenfold. According to this guide, you can get a device called a MOGA Mobile Gaming System that allows you to hook it up to your smartphone to make gaming easier and more natural. It even comes with its own classic games, though you’ll be able to play newer ones, too. This is clearly a strong step forward for the mobile gaming platform and should lead to more breakthroughs down the line.

Where mobile gaming also allows for an enhanced experience is in its always-intuitive multiplayer capabilities. Even if you’re playing a seemingly single-player game like DOTS, there are still leaderboards to make it competitive and like you’re playing against others. Beyond that, there are tons of games that allow you to go head-to-head with human opponents, including personal favorite (and highly addictive, might I add) Clash of Clans. Considering phones have built-in wi-fi capabilities—the 3DS does, too, to be fair—they’re a natural multiplayer device.

What’s particularly interesting is that some games have become so popular that they have even been ported to consoles. The team at GamerSciz recently reported that EA is set to release a version of the universally loved Plants Vs. Zombies will land on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One (and PC, too). This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise for longtime mobile and console gamers, though. You might recall that the also ridiculously popular Angry Birds franchise was ported over to consoles, too. It seems as if this is becoming the norm and why not? The ease of play with many of these games is as intuitive as it gets. Also, gamers, like everyone else, don’t want to be and shouldn’t be restricted to choosing one platform over the other. Well, unless we’re talking about exclusives, but that’s another story entirely.
