I don't like the chat log interface in that position. I always like how on FFXI it kept a central position at the bottom of your screen. I don't like having it on one side or the other, it's like those cars that put the console in the middle of the dashboard. It's awkward and ends up a hassle.
Also, I'm really not digging the way the movement was looking. I don't like when I turn left or right in a game, for the camera not to turn to follow my angle. In FFXI it did, and this is something FFXI got right. So I hope they are using a certain option or some such. And I really hope to god they don't use the WoW style of Camera control, it gets too annoying and over complicated.
However, as people are saying, this is ALPHA testing. I believe Square Enix even said a lot of these things would be customizable once the game was released, not only that but in this stage of the game when it's still in Alpha, no one should judge it off anything but the graphics, which look absolutely stunning.
Also, gigantic chickens will devour your soul.
