Us PC players getting a head start and ******** over PS3 players is one way to look at it. But the other side of the coin is that us PC players will have the worlds all set up for you when you get here. You'll have lots of weapons, shield and body armor ready and waiting for you - things we had to level up our crafts and make ourselves. As a pugilist, the first weapon I could buy from an NPC after r1, was r19, and noone wanted to part with their prized weapon for cheep. Try to think of it as PC players setting up a PL for PS3 players . . . well, if you can. I'd be frustrated too without a pc.
Yeah well that's the thing. I don't want to have it all set up for me. I don't want to be protected by the strong, I want to be one of them. This way it is impossible, I will forever be a noob compared to the PC players who got a year headstart. And I don't understand players who'd rather buy than craft, it want to feel like I really made it myself and deserve it, you know hard work and all that. That's why the "you'll have lots of weapons, shield and body armor ready and waiting for you" part is a negative. Even if its useful I'd still rather be the guy selling the stuff than one byuing them.
That is the whole point of this. To try and become better than everybody else. To outlevel and outskill. That is the biggest and one of the only problems I have with this game.
And in response to the guy who said there are first and last names, yeah I knew that and that was exactly what I meant.
The ones I was planning to take, well the first one is safe since its my name, and nobody has anything close to that. But the second, third and fourth characters have first names known to every FF fan and last names made of a common noun or adjective. And one of them is a celebrity. So I don't think any of them will be available when I get there.
Sorry, this got long, always happens when I write late at night. Thanks for all the responses so far.
