Title: Final Fantasy 14...Wait what?
Gundam12 - October 11, 2010 12:07 AM (GMT)
Its that time again, Final Fantasy XIV, not very many people seem to know about this.
I bought it recently and OMG, I'm thinking its a bit under rated so far.
It is the online time of game, an MMORPG, and its AWESOME. Better then Wow, better then any other one I know.
The graphics, if your computer can handle them, are SUPERB. mind boggling, FFXIII equivalence, but the areas are HUGE, and much bigger.
Character creation is awesome in this game, with quite the choice of stuff, and tonnes of classes to choose from, and many different races to pick.
I personally love this game so far, it cost me only £20 from Amazon, CHEAP. It comes with a 30 day trial, but does cost £10 a month afterwards, hardcore FF fans will love it I think, longtime MMO fans will love it too.
Downside is...ITS CONFUSING.
Its like being thrown into a war at the age of 15, and having to command an extremely powerful gundam!!...Wait a minute thats quite easy...
Hmm...Its like Taking on an enemy ace pilot when having no previous combat experian--....Im not good at this ¬_¬
Its bloody confusing okay? You have no real guidance with what to do, or how to do it, so its fun if you like a challenge like me, but if you dont have patience, then beware.
Also, the system requirements, or recommended requirements are CRAZY. I was lucky to get my Dads laptop so im cool, but the recommended stats are like 4GB of Ram, i7 processor, Windows 7, slightly obsurd.
But I recommend this game to anyone, its so much fun and the landscapes and graphics are lush and amazing and they are just MASSIVE. Its all very enjoyable and the bottom line is! I want friends. XD.

This is why the thread was entited 'Wait...what'
XD, FF XIV came out about 2 weeks ago, but the Beta has been out a while ago.
If you remember FF 11, its online like that. and Your right FF 13 did oly just come out a while ago, but they were developing both of them at the same time
And there are 2 more FF 13 titles to be released - FF 13 Versus and FF 13 Agito
Square Enix are a busy company, I even heard something about FF 15 ideas

Not a big fan of MMO's anyway, but from what i've seen the voice acting and confusing menus are a complete turn off. (Although I will be a hypocrite and say I am excited for Star Wars The Old Republic)

It is confusing, granted XD.
And rather difficult...

Most MMOs are confusing, especially when first released, I think it comes with the territory :D Things like WoW have had yeeeeeears to get things right, hopefully Square will take the time to sort out all the problems people are highlighting.
Looks like a good game, and I was gonna get it on release, but my PC specs aren't up to scratch. So I'll have to wait for a bit until I can afford to upgrade. Maybe they'll have smoothed some things out by then.

Thats cool Demo, let me know if you do decide to play when you get a better computer.
I know what you mean, there are a variety of bugs, more to do with functionality then gameplay, and I only got this game cause my dad gave me his old super laptop, other wise I wasnt gonna bother.
