The Waiting Game


The Waiting Game

So as you may or may not know, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is just around the corner.


Sort of.


In fact, it seems like it is taking FUCKING FOREVER. A couple close companions and I discuss the game on a daily basis. Despite not having played the game in its previous versions due to lack of a proper gaming PC, I'm starting to feel like a grizzled veteran just from the constant influx of new information that my headspace absorbs.


Except for the fact that I can't even decide on my starting race. Or city. Or character name. But I do know a few things, for certain.

  1. I am going to be playing on the PS3.
  2. I feel sorry for my close friends (the ones who aren't going to play alongside me)
  3. I worry about these next couple semesters of school.
  4. My main is going to be Paladin. I think.

More info on that later.


Every day that passes, I anticipate some sort of new announcement. Anything to wrap my brain around. And a couple days ago, FFXIV's executive producer Naoki Yoshida released the news I have been chewing my nails over. 


Sort of. (Becoming a theme, isn't it?)




Phase 3 of beta testing (The one that involves the PS3) starts early June. Yay. Official release date will be announced and pre-orders start at the end of May. Also collector's edition.










June seems so far away I can hardly stand it. 

Needless to say, my expectations of XIV:ARR are set very high. I hope Square-Enix doesn't disappoint. 

I'll be updating this blog with screenshots, information, thoughts, plans, random shit between now and the eventual release of the game. Maybe even after, if I get enough traction. Comments and criticisms welcome.
