Girl is really pretty/****/hot looking.
Everyone knows about the girl and it's fun to show off that you're with her.
....but you hope noone actually engages the girl in a conversation, lest they find out she thinks "Chicken of the Sea" is actually some sort of aquatic chicken served in a can... and not Tuna.
I can deal with a Beta game being "rusty", the bugs, the lag and most of the other stuff i've seen posted as complaints. My biggest gripe is the lack of immersion. I don't feel like I'm taking part in a world, I feel like I'm watching a Blue-Ray disc and navigating menu's to enhance certain scenes. All of your actions in the game are menu driven, and thus you have very very little interaction with the actual environment.
Magnify this with the fact that each character animation takes about 3-5 seconds, and you kill the immersion even more. When I tell my character to perform a special move, or mine, or craft... it takes so long for the completion, even of lackluster moves, that everyone thinks it's lag... when in actuallity it's just horribly executed animation speed.
This is NOT a next-gen MMO. It's not even a mature MMO (meaning you can't tell they created an MMO before this). It's an MMO that doesn't know what it wants to be, so it tries to be a little of everything, which resulted in a lot of great potential - but very little follow through and success.
