They're still trying to figure out how to forward the ports on their routers to get the patch installed.
Considering they were saying this game is aimed at casual gamers it's kinda funny how even the update system is horrible. Messing around with router settings is never something most people are going to want to do and given their target audience we shouldnt have to, nothing like this was needed in FFXI.
As for OP, honestly I think game sites and magazines like to be given a certain amount of communication etc. I'm guessing Square pretty much ignore them and so they snub the game, seems to be how Square would operate anyway.
Square never really cared about advertising or communicating with games press or anyone else for that matter. They are pretty arrogant really but people still buy them regardless so I guess they have every right to be. They arent upto blizzard standards but they do well enough to their own standards to not care. Edited, Sep 30th 2010 6:39pm by preludes
