Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn: Review-in-Progress Part Two
Now that some of the issues plaguing the first week's release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, we continue our series of Review in Progress articles. What did we find in our second week in Eorzea? Find out and then tell us what you think in the comments.

In this week's review in progress will cover two topics that are central to this incarnation of XIV; FATEs, and the Job system. FATE or Full Active Time Event is a new addition to A Realm Reborn that was not present in XIV 1.0. While FATE may sound like a word that was turned into an acronym to suit SE's purposes it is actually a welcome addition to Final Fantasy. Most of you are probably aware that over the course of the past few years since 1.0's original release dynamic events have really started to gain ground with the MMO community. While these events can trace their roots back to the earliest of MMOs they really came to prominence with the release of Rift. They have became even more of a gameplay staple with the massive success of Guild Wars 2. Square Enix took note of this trend and made sure dynamic events were a main feature in their relaunched game.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn: Chatting with Naoki Yoshida at PAX Prime '13
We caught up with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn game director Naoki Yoshida to discuss all things ARR at this year's PAX Prime.

Late last week, Square Enix announced their plans to address the various service issues plaguing the game, but what about compensating players for the significant frustrations they have endured and continue to endure? On that front, Mr. Yoshida informed us that the team has plans to extend the free period for players in order to give them back the time they have lost.

Game of the Week
Destiny developed by Bungie takes place in the future in the milky way solar system in which a catastrophic event has stricken Earth. There's only one city left on Earth protected by a large sphere called The Traveler.

Players are put in to the role of a Guardian powered by The Traveler. Guardians will work together as the last hope of mankind to try and discover what led to the downfall of humanity. Especially after the golden age allowing humans to travel to other planets. While Destiny hasn't been referred to as an MMO, it's a shared world third person shooter.
