The time is almost upon us. Those crazy Mandervilles have been hard at work setting up shop for us on the beautiful coast of Costa del Sol and the doors are set to be open in less than a week. *points to the countdown to the left* For those unfamiliar, the Golden Saucer is going to be a casino/arcade/racetrack hybrid with lots of fun activities to enjoy when you are not busy beheading some Primal or playing dollie dress up with your Miqo'te Some of the many activities to be included are:
- Triple Triad - A collectable card game
- Chocobo Racing - A racing/breeding system
- GATEs - Golden Saucer Active Timed Events (isn't that GSATEs?)
- Mini-Games - Monster Toss, Crystal Tower Striker, Moogle's Paw
- Cactpot - A weekly lottery drawing
Watch a video and read up on all the details in the Letter from the Producer.
Does this make Costa del Col the new Vegas? Are we going to start seeing Luisioux impersonators and overpriced hotels with Eorzean themes? We would need a Lalafellin mafia and headliners... a bunch of Tonberries that play music on odd ancient contraptions. We could call them the Green Man Group... people could get hammered and married to members of their PUG at 3AM for 5gil. We would need a red light district... chocobo parking...
