So I've known about FFXIV (going to be ff14 here out) but didn't give it much look into for my own reasons:
1) I played FFXI for 3.5 years on ps2. Had to quit due to ps2 crashing on me again and me unable to repair it again (1 ps2, changed the guts so many times to play FFXI >.>).
3) My comp was just to low to actually play FFXI on it t.t
I loved FFXI. I do miss my Galka and my Wyvern Gizmo (<3 DRG).
I picked up WoW in Feb 2008, and have enjoyed my time (still do).
Flash forward to the other day. I bought a Game Informer for the Micky Mouse game (to read about it, it does look neat..need to pick up a Wii before it comes out) and inside the mag they had a small article about FF14.
What cought my eye was the pics of the races. All the races of FFXI are there, but "evolved".
So now I'm all exited about this game. It looks nice (what few images they had), the job system seems neat, and the "double" race (light and dark versions?) sounds fun for Roleplaying.
I'm all giddy (kiddy?) inside. I actually want this game...right now.
My comp won't be able to handle it, but i did pick up at ps3 a few weeks back.
So I'm ready.
Just hope there is better solo play than what was in FFXI (the article hints that there is) and that they do it right with a their payment system (most games now do the pre-paid cards. Lets go SE, join the awesomeness that is Pre-paid card so I can buy time when I have the cash ^-^).
I'm ready to start my WoW count-down to done timer. And start up the FF14 Comes out [ ] timer.
