I ran the benchmark today and only got 6200. :/ I guess it's time to build a new pc. (not for this game, but just in general)

I started with FF7 and stopped with FF8.

It's decent, minus all the fetch quests in the beginning. Not sure if I care much for the battle system though, as it seems rather slow and a bit unfun if compared to other MMOs.

 

The game is beautiful though, and the UI feel really well done.

I've been playing this beta for a while and am loving it. Me and a couple of friends are all starting out together. 

 

I played FFXI back in the day and was in the original FFXIV beta never played full FFXIV as beta didn't leave the best taste. So far the FFXIV: ARR beta has been much more enjoyable.

Is the game like FFXI where the world is split into discrete zones, that require loading screens when traveling between them?

Is it a subscription game? If it is I'll pass. It's not the money, it's the time. I don't have time to force myself to make the most out of the time I pay for in an MMO. If it's free there is no pressure and I can enjoy my playtime. It's why I still love GW2.


I agree. I too just don't have the time to justify the monthly cost but would play periodically if I could. It would be nice if these MMOs would adopt different price models. For instance, $15/mo for unlimited access and have a pay for minute model that is like $15 for 15 hours or something. If you choose the second option those hours don't expire and you can play more to your schedule if you are a 'lite' MMO gamer.

Beta seems to open to all: https://secure.squar...vbetatop?rgn=na

 

Tried it for a few and couldn't get into it. Too Japanese for me (if you know what I mean).

Not touching this with a 100ft barge poll after the original.  I don't know why but after WoW, all mmorpgs seem to lack something despite my attempts to try almost every one.

I definately understand that, but it's a completely different game from what I've played.

 

I'm not even sure 'game' is the right word for the original.  Apparently some people played it, but for the life of me I couldn't figure out why.

Must say this game is amazing, havent played FF since PS2 days and im impressed.  I was able to get into the beta and made it to level 20 :D

I liked it so much I preordered it and going to do at least 180 day or more sub because its cheaper that way..

Really looking forward to this game, the original was a flop. I've pre-ordered, and never got invited to the closed beta. :(

It's currently open beta, so you might try again?

Geez, didn't realize it was so short, sorry.

 

I think I'm in the middle of too many other games to get into this, but I did enjoy it.  Perhaps later.

Yes this was the final beta before release, unfortunately only running this weekend. I think the NA servers may be available for like an hour or so but they will definitely go down later (like a couple hours max) from this post.
