Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
After playing Forsaken World since closed beta, I thought it was time to switch games. I like Forsaken World because the gear and other things where gorgeous. However, like most Perfect World Entertainment games, it was a bit lacking in more way than one. Getting to be a top player was pretty much impossible unless you spent thousands of dollars on Zen in order to buy gear items in the cash shop. I digress, so let me continue.
A friend of mine alerted me to the fact that a MMORPG for the Final Fantasy series was going to be released soon. I only ever watched someone play one of the very first Final Fantasy games, so I wasn't too enthusiastic about the game as he was. Not to mention you had to buy the game and pay a monthly fee. I immediately had a flashback to my World of Warcraft days. I am still cringing on the many times I was ganked by OP players while I quested.
The thing is, I am broke. I work at a gas station, so it isn't like I get paid a lot of money. In fact, I only work four days a week and only get paid $7.75 an hour. My weekly paychecks aren't even $200.00. Not to mention I am still paying off my student loans, which takes up most of my monthly earnings. I might as well just wipe my ass with my Bachelors Degree, which is all it is good for at the moment. No one is hiring in my area and with my anxiety/depression/bipolarism I can't find the courage to move to somewhere where businesses are hiring.
My point is, I really can't afford to play this game. However, my friend talked me into it so I purchased the game and have been playing on the free month it comes with. When that free month is over, however, I will probably stop playing. Here are some pros and cons about the game so far. In my own opinion of course.
I have noticed that when you have to "use" and item, your character proceeds with what appears to be a wedgie picking animation. Then whatever you managed to pick out of your butt gets tossed into the air nonchalantly where it proceeds to explode into rainbow colored pixie dust.
