    I played ff11 forever, loved the hell out of it, went back to it like a year ago played it for a few months and loved the hell out of it still, I don't play right now mostly because I don't have the time (Though I might go reactive my account right now lol) but I'm looking more forward to this game then I am my wedding.

    Im going to wait a few months after its released and see if anyone thinks its any good. Needs to be better then the one im playing now before i either give it up entirely or I end up playing 2 subscription MMos which isnt a good idea but its my money and ill use it how ever the hell i want! =)

    I played FFXI for a couple of years and without hesitation I'll get XIV for the PC, I just hope they don't make it so time consuming and make it that you can see progress without placing so much effort because we all have lives.

    I am looking forward to FF XIV very much, as it has been said that it will cater to casual gamers, which is a big sell point for me. I just wonder the system requirements are going to be for it. Looks like it's about time to invest in a new gaming PC. :laugh

    I'll probably look into it once more info is released. I never played XI so I don't know how an online FF setting would be.

    I would get it if it wasn't for monthly payments. I already have to pay for Xbox Live and shit dealing with college, I just can't afford it.

    I definitely want to check this out, my friend was telling me about it the other day. I played FFXI when it first came out back in like 2001-2002 and I was hella young when it first came out. I switched back and forth between FFXI, WoW, and Guild Wars for some time, last time I went back to FFXI was last summer.

    I never really played too hardcore though, my highest is a 52 Red Mage/Black Mage named Alunus on Fenrir. Wehn I hear more about this game I may decide to get it, I need a new MMO to play. :)

    $15/month isn't much considering the amount of play time you get out of an MMO. And what Xbox Live is like $45 a year or something like that?

    I'm keeping my eye on this and see how it turns out. Right now I'm enjoying Aion.

    Well, being in college, I wouldn't be playing it much honestly. I guess I'll stick to offline FFs, though I'm dying to play XI and this one. :cry

    Yea from playing FFXI, that definitely wasn't casual friendly. Although, I heard it has gotten better, I haven't played in a few years.

    I'm really hoping I get accepted. I thoroughly enjoyed FFXI (mainly because of the people I played with). I would've stayed, but I couldn't keep up with the monthly subscriptions.

    I hope they change the stupid "Everyone pays on the 1st" policy. They are dropping POL so that's a good sign. I've heard rumors of item based subscription though which does scare me. I would rather pay a flat out fee to be honest.

    Signed up for the Beta can't wait for it, I hope they have a "class" like beastmaster in this game, maybe if you equip a whip you will be able to charm mobs lol? I sort of want to go back too 11 and play my beastmaster some.


    also looks like they added a character creation screen to their website.

    No pet classes in 14, doesn't look too good for after launch either.

    This hasn't been confirmed yet though? I mean they have announced all of the Physical damage related classes already but it could be a magical class , like summoner. I know Beastmasters being able to solo caused a lot of problems early in ff11 , especially MPK issues.

    It's been confirmed in various interviews. The closest thing to summoner people MIGHT get is some type of class like maybe Illusionist, where you become the summon/avatar/esper. Otherwise, no pet classes on launch for sure and the way they talk about it, I doubt it for xpacs also

    I've heard many good things about FFXI from my friend. Definitely considering it when it comes out. I mean, it's Final Fantasy :D

    Well that sucks, any word on a buffing/debuffing class? I always liked that they had that type of class instead of just dps/tank/healer. Something like the Bard or Red mage.

    The next update will be on the magic classes hopefully. I'm hoping for a bard/rdm/cor type myself

    Magic classes will be interesting , though I never took whm/rdm/blm/blu past lvl 40

    I'm really thinking about starting playing 11 again just to hold me over, but the games changed so much when I went back like a year ago I was sort of lost.

    It sucks that it most likely won't come out for 360.

    This may be one of the only games that will make me get a 360. There is always PC though.

    It's a mmo , it should be kept far away from consoles IMO , would be a much better game if it was going to be PC exclusive. Of course I wish they took it a step further and made it for Mac and/or Linux too. Building a decent gaming PC can be expensive enough but having to invest that $100-$200 in windows 7 or risk pirating it.



    Either way I am super hyped about ff14

    FF 11 was cross platform, i think that made a good game great. I had plenty of friends that bought the ps2 version and i had it on PC, so we could all play together.

    as far as i know its going to be out for ps3 and PC. The beta is PC only at the time being. i signed up a while ago and havent heard anything new yet though. it was stated that selection is not based on who signed up first.

    when the game comes out ill be buying it on ps3 since i dont want to pay for a new graphics card.

    but getting a Mac with the same specs would cost about twice as much, no?

    Oh you. :hehee

    I'm somewhat excited. In my book, FFIX is the second-best MMO out there, though I admit I hope Square has learned a lot from Western MMOs for this new installment. What I've seen so far has basically been FFXI in HD. Hopefully the real changes lie in game mechanics.

    The downside to making a MMO on console is that eventually the MMO will outlast the hardware. There were plenty of changes and upgrades that SE could not do because the PS2 was holding the game back. At least, that was their excuse for quite alot of things that they weren't able to implement.

    The PS3 at least is extremely powerful and honestly should be more than enough for MMO to last a long time and still be able to be updated without risk of hardware limitations.

    lol not a mac owner huh?

    I mean yeah you could go buy a shitty dell laptop for half the price of a MBP and I have done that for my office and at home and its really just doesn't compare to owning this.

    X

    and for the desktop variety and you want dual screens you can't go wrong with

    X

    and let me play WoW at like 30+ fps and surf/listen/watch on my 2nd monitor. go ahead and buy a $300 desktop and pray to get the same performance. Bought my mini base line, bought a new hd and ram from a third party, opening that mini was really fun.


    I cant speak for these two products and they are a little over priced imo but boy are they pretty.

    It doesn't look nearly as awesome as Final Fantasy XI but being such a big fan I'm probably going to give it a chance.
