Going Crazy Until Sep 30Follow

So this is a ridiculous question but am I the only one going crazy? I mean I log on today and watched the updated trailer on the final fantasy website and I just wanted to jump into my screen and be part of it all. The game just looks so beautiful and I am envious of the beta testers just for the sole fact that they get to see the game, even if it isn't fully polished yet. I can't play any other game for a long period of time before becoming bored out my skull and wanting to come to Zam and read up on everyone else. I swear this crack pipe is worse than when I first got my hands on Star Craft 2. Anyways this may seem as a useless post, but I wanted to start becoming a frequent poster. Anyways besides Final Fantasy XIV what are your upcoming titles that you are eager to play, may it be PC, Xbox or PS3.

If you're so crazy, why not get the CE and start on Sep 22 instead? I'm not going crazy yet, but as the 22nd gets nearer the anticipation will likely start to build...

The last week before playing it, assuming you're not in the Beta, will be the worst xD

I was a PC gamer about 5-6 years ago, go into building my machine to play all the games then I started playing FFXI and played that for about 3 years then moved and became a cop and time became scarce. So I bought a xbox 360 then a PS3 (mainly for FFXIV) then the delay of the game for ps3 came about so I geared up for PC again. I am almost tempted to sell all my systems and just stick with PC gaming forever. Games play a lot better on a PC than any platform in my opinion. I was looking forward to Fable 3 but I am afraid I will be sucked into this game and can not escape the black hole, which is perfectly fine by me.


The wife thinks I'm crazy, but she leaves me alone because I strap on a bullet proof vest and gun and deal with the crazies.

We need to do a cartman and freeze ourselves until release date - That'll fix it.

Just remember, a watched pot doesn't boil - try to take your mind off it if possible (I can't do it) and it'll all go faster. Or eat a whole bunch and hibernate!

Nope, I'm right there with ya.
Only I have med school starting on the 23rd of Aug. so I will be deep in study by the time Sept 30th comes around.
I hope you have something to occupy your time with soon as the anticipation can get relentless.
Goodluck

I feel your pain. I've tried going back to LOTRO, distracting myself with Portal and another FFXIII playthrough, playing FFIII on the DS... so many things. I just keep coming back to XIV and find myself dissatisfied with everything else, even though we know barely anything right now. Thankfully I've taken an officer role with the guild I play with and am helping to build our XIV chapter, so that helps some. I get to do something that helps others get into the game and be ready for it, and it satisfies my desire to be a part of XIV right now in some way.

46 more days!

Yes, I do have a countdown widget on my Droid.

Upcoming titles I'm interested in other than FFXIV: None...
That may change when I get my new pc this week, but the main focus is definitely XIV. Spent a ton of time deciding on what to get for my new system, now that's done so I'm waiting on it & rearranging furniture to play the game in style come september...need to find a small ottoman that will fit under this desk...still considering the option of removing this monitor and replacing it with my 32" lcd....very tempting...

Nothing even crosses my mind. Final Fantasy 14 is all there is to anticipate.

? I'm puzzled.
you mean one of these in a little person form? Little Ottoman
I've been to Turkey, and knowing what I know about these people you won't get one to stay under there for very long. You can plan on lots of swearing, spitting, and maybe some biting. and if you are at the desk come biting time it could get bad.

You all trip me up love reading your responses. I thought of freezing myself like cartman, but when I saw it back fire on him and wake up in the middle of a war about Scientology I thought better of it. I tried to go back and play STO but meh I'm a grown kid with severe game adhd can't keep my attention within the first couple of days I go watch the butterflies. Good thing I got a pretty bad *** job where I get paid to go have fun that's the only thing keep me sane or insane, you gotta be doing what I do.

I'm going nuts being bored as heck because I'm waiting for two things. One is the game's release, the other is my (now third) university course is starting next month. I have to go through August with next to nothing to do. It's like all my friends disappeared from the planet as from the beginning of this month I have not had contact with pretty much any of them and I don't know where they are.

I was doing fine waiting for September 22, to come (yes CE)until i actually went and preordered. I thought I had enough on my plate to keep me from rogue thoughts of playing FFXVI running into my head. I have a wedding to plan, work, learning russian, and family to take care of.... but no, Im sitting here at the computer reading posts about what MAY happen in the game...

Is it September yet?

..That reminds me of that one simpsons episode when they went on spring break. "Are we there yet?" No. "Are we there yet?" No. "Are we there yet?" NO! "Are we there yet???" NO!!!!!!!!!...oh wait, yes.
I believe that accurately describes our situation.

I was starting to get like that so I thought I'd start playing XI again to pass the time. Then I realized how much has been added over the last year I was gone, and how much is planned to be coming out and I'm starting to get torn. XIV is going to have to really wow me, because I only want to play one MMO at a time and it is going to take an impressive title to make me want to give up all that's going on in XI right now.

Yeah it's tough to wait this out. I just wish they gave us some more information on the game to go on.

It's really hard to believe this game comes out next month.

Yeah well I ran the benchmark for only two purposes, 1.) To ensure that I had all my parts to my PC running at the best I could (overclocked my 1055T to 3.4 Ghz, a first for me) and 2.) torture myself with more anticipation. Now because of all of you, that's right all of you, I went and preordered the CE edition.... Now just gotta tell my wife that it was worth the money haha. And a sad day for myself, my brother who has been playing the beta has notified me that he probably would not play as much as he first intended because he thinks he will not have enough time.

Must be a joke because myself as a law enforcement officer and a married man will make time, shame on him.

I'm @ the /random forum trolling point myself, having completely redone my office 3 times, redone the wiring 4 or 5 times [gone through about 1500 wire ties] built a brand new 6 core AMD machine, overclocked the **** out of it, completely redone the UI, tweaked windows up one side and down the other, went back and completely overhauled my wife's machine, cleaned the carpets, the garage, redid the bathroom, rewired the router and added an external switch. . . .

I'm out of sh** to do, and it's only the beginning of August >.>
If I don't manage to luck my way into the beta, I think my head'll explode ;)

Yeah I should change the title now to "Going Crazy Until Sep 22" is it sad that I have these forums as a homepage app on my iphone, home computer and work computer? I guess I can go back to getting slaughtered in online play of SC2... I just don't get it, or other people have more time on their hands than me.

I can't play any other games! I just stare at my new PC and TV and think about FFXIV. Then I go rent a movie.

Champions Online is pretty meh, a sequel should really be better than an original, right?

Maybe I should be playing Starcraft II.

I believe it's time to start the official countdown timer! Going to countdown to the September 21st at midnight. I don't know how Amazon does it, but Gamestop is having a midnight release for the Collector's Edition and I'll be there.

It's now Tuesday, August 10th, 2010 @ 12:45pm, so:

42 days, 11 hours, 15 mins until Eorzea.
