FFXIV



This was a big letdown.

It's already out in retail and the game still plays like it's in beta. I don't understand the point of rushing out an unfinished product that easily needs another year of development. Square employees said they would "fix" the UI and other numerous problems for retail release, but they were never fixed at all. Then again, when has Square ever listened to their customers?

The horrible lag for everything is still there too. I don't feel like going too in detail because I'm sure everyone keeping up with FFXIV already knows about all the current complaints. Apparently there's been a lot of negative backlash in Japan as well. I'm honestly surprised the land of die-hard Squeenix fanboys who gobble up and praise anything Square churns out its asshole are hating this game.

I was really looking forward to it when I first saw the new scans/information pop up from Famitsu, but actually playing it made me feel otherwise. I'm hoping they address and fix up everything once the PS3 release comes around.

I just have to wait and see for now, I guess.

  4. The EXP cap thing just seemed really stupid to me. Why actively punish your customers? Nice post though, cheers.

  6. I was actually craving an MMORPG after finally breaking my shitty WoW addiction.

    FFXIV's beta did a good job steering me away. Holy shit it was bad.

    Then I moved to Vindictus, hit the level cap in 2 days and uninstalled it. I wish TOR and Diablo III would come out already.

  8. Yeah, I played the beta. Amazing graphics, great soundtrack, but gameplay just fell flat. Not too mention that horrid UI.

  15. I spent so much effort trying to get the beta for this.

    Then proceeded to do the quest killing 3 rats. Uninstalled right after. At least its pretty if you've got a beast PC to play it on, and run around in your mithra catgirl going on a moe-adventure.

  16. I spent a lot of time on this game.

    Then no.

    Lots of no.

    They're supposed to improve it in January but then it might be too little too late.
