All of TERA's political system aside... that character creation shot looks incredibly derpy. It's his eyes.

You won't see it in-game though, since no-one will be playing a male character in this game.

I don't think everyone is as hard up for sex as you apparently seem to be. Not everyone gets off from computer generated polygons, nor do they want to pretend to be a girl in a game that is meant to simulate a life.

Also, about the system specs, they already released them a while back. They aren't for the final build though, and these are minimum:

• Intel Core Duo 2 Processor
• 2 GB RAM
• NVidia GeForce 7600 or ATI Radeon X1800 GTO

About half of what FFXIV require, and it looks 10 times better. Funny, the things you can do with a half decent engine. Oh Square-Enix, when will you learn? Runs on Unreal 3 so it's pretty optimized for PC at this point, should run pretty smooth and not use too much system resources.

@kjrandomletters

I dunno, while I like the look of Tera, I think I prefer the style of FFXIV still, but I also probably will be playing FFXIV on PS3, so may check Tera out on the computer.

Also yes, that guy looks strange. I think it's his huge Chin of Manliness.

@kjhasdfjkhk: I do know the difference between real-life and an in-game environment, thank you very much. Kudos to you on assuming things about other people, no really. Maybe next time you'll stop frothing at your mouth long enough to come up with a name that is an actual word.

That video is pretty nice. I felt like I was watching something made by Pixar. Can't wait to hear what the system specs will be...

Dear massively,
I'm not sure if you have any set rules for linking but it keeps confusing me as sometimes clicking on the image takes me to the article and sometimes to the article source. I click the games name and it shows me related articles and sometimes it takes me to the game's website. Sometimes it is super handy and sometimes I do one expecting the other only to have my face go X_x.

I was thinking maybe you guys could template things so you just had a (via: XXX) at the end of the articles to site the source and maybe a link to the website for the game the article talks about. This way all inter-article linking could just be for massively.

Just a suggestion ^_^

Charlie,

Actually, we do have a style for our links! Let me break it down for you:

1. Pictures and the source link at the bottom of the article will link back to the source of our news, unless the source is the game itself, in which case it links back to the game.

2. The first mention of a game in our articles always links to the game's website.

3. The second mention of a game in our articles always links to the category or tag section for the game, so we can show you related stories.

I hope that helps alleviate some of your confusion and your X_x.

With players not having to be vested in one area and have citizenship to vote there and once they have that citizenship not be able to go to another town across the world and vote without transfering it I can see a mass zerg wave in voting friends into office.

hahah I'm sorry but the first few minutes of the video I hear from the guy talking to the interviewer. "Please don't say anything if you have nothing important to say".. Gotta love that.

Hi mate,

I'm actually the interviewer from the video. The guy wasn't actually saying that to me. He was saying it to his colleague. They had some sort of act going on where they pretended to hate each other during the interview. Hope that clears things up. They were actually very nice people.

Taxes eh? So is that just a money sink or does it help say build the city?

We built this city on Popori-ioooohh!

The way they explain the political system sounds like a nightmare tbh, and pretty meaningless to the majority of players. So someone you probably never met/heard of/seen can get elected to be 'king', raise taxes so they get more money and make less mobs spawn in one area or another. So what? How does that make the game more interesting or fun to play for 99% of the people? I really can't see any point in it other than to encourage guilds to recruit as many people as they can just to get more votes.
