The only negative part of it all is that I've lost all interest in playing anything else until release. Other than that, I'm really looking forward to ARR.
I had a dream one night years ago when I was struggling to choose between WoW and FFXI. All of my friends had gone to WoW and it was more "fun" in some ways, but I was still in love with FFXI. In my dream a gateway opened in Jeuno and we were able to travel between Vanadiel and Azeroth freely, our abilities stayed, but the mechanics were the same in their respectable realms. Suddenly all of my friends from both games could play together. It was the most awesome MMO I've ever experienced. I was very disappointed when I woke up. . .
Anyway, that was many moons ago, but I feel like ARR is a fulfillment of that dream in a way. It seems to have the entertaining aspects and combat of a western mmo combined with the soul of a Final Fantasy game. I may get flamed for expressing my enjoyment of other MMOs, but either way ARR looks to be promising. Besides, I need to stop going out so much!
