So they finally got their shit together and "2.0" is on the horizon. This includes the PS3 release.

Apparently there's been a shitload of changes to the game in the time since we last gave a fuck about it. I won't lie, I've kept the game installed on my computer this whole time with the hope that they'll somehow make it good and fun so I can try it again. I'm definitely going to give it another month spin once this 2.0 version drops. It certainly LOOKS very much like the Final Fantasy MMO I actually wanted.

So i got to play for about 20 mins before the server died tonight for maintenence...


THEY FUCKING DID IT.

THEY FUCKING FIXED FF14.


It controls (with mouse/kb) like a real modern MMO... its not laggy or crappy, you can jump... regular WASD+mouselook controls.

The menus are resizable, movable... the inventory is bag-slot based instead of a stupid list.

The map is functional, it moves in real time with you and shows quest locations and shit. The quest system is a rip of WOW's -- which is pretty much the best thing you can rip off for a game like this.

It looks BEAUTIFUL, and runs like a champ. It performs pretty much flawlessly running windowed fullscreen on my comp at 1680x1050... FFXIV 1.0 struggled like a bitch in an even smaller window on the exact same hardware.

Unfortunately the server died right before i got into combat on the initial tutorial questline, so I can't say for sure they fixed the gameplay, but... damn its like a revelation. To quote Naba from my stream "It's like I saw a unicorn."

I'll be playing this a LOT more and streaming, I'll update the skype channel when and where.
