As opposed to a turd disguised as a Final Fantasy game?
From: DeathWyvern | #001 I decided to try this atrocity out again before the free trial ends.

I just updated it...wtf?
Happened to me all the time, too. It's like the game got self-aware and didn't want to be played. I usually waited for the next patch and then it worked. --- 3D screens.. how do they work? are they similar to magnets?

Actually what happened here is I realized I was launching the beta version instead of retail, lol.
I logged on played for 5 minutes and logged off. No motivation to mess with this game right now, maybe when it comes out on PS3. But I honestly don't see how they can just fix bad design. I like the idea of all these guild leves, the crafting system, but honestly. Where are the quests that have story? Where is ...anything meaningful in this game? There aren't even any towns to my knowledge except for the main ones. You just find camps everywhere with a crystal that you can do quests at. Whoever in their right mind thought this was a good idea needs hit with a frying pan. Not to mention IIRC didn't FFXI INVENT the auction house? One of the best things to ever get put into an MMO, and they replaced it with this marketward crap. Instead of just giving us an auction house, they are trying to improve the market wards. I don't want to look at EVERY seller to find the one thing I need.
The game is just designed badly, all around pretty much. At least nobou gave it a kickass soundtrack, and the graphics team as always hit it out of the ballpark. But somewhere along the lines square just forgot how to make games. Pretty graphics, stories of the past few games I've played by them have been mediocre at best. I mean, do they even play the games they make themselves anymore? You should be able to determine if something is fun or not before you sell it to people. --- Gamertag - Mythologick Playing - Halo: Reach, Starcraft 2, Tales of Vesperia
