Can I ask a dumb, but interesting question? Is this "triple A" mmo still free to play if you own the box?

@(Unverified) Well, that's nice. At least people can get around the stale environments that much quicker! Here's hoping this time next year it'll be a decent game.

Oh great, then another year of your "I want this game to succeed, but I really hate it because it sucks" posts.

@(Unverified) Nah, I'm only harping on it because it's been a year since launch and this is all they've done so far. I'll shut up until the next anniversary rolls around. We'll see then if I sing praise or the same song :)

@Tizmah What? They've removed the stamina gauge from battle (which also meant EACH ability had to be rebalanced with cooldowns and such), added two instanced dungeons, added a market wards search, a few holiday events, changed the party system, added new levequests, new crafting recipes, a mini crafting journal with a more in depth one coming soon, added targeting systems, got rid of the UI lag, added NM's, and next patch (which is to be released in the next month) they're adding airships, chocobos, getting rid of the physical level (again, a huge change that needed lots of rebalancing), adding the materia system, beastmen strongholds, and caravan escorts. That's all that I can recall anyways, I'm sure there more.

Incidentally during the game's own 1 year anniversary. Not coincidentally I'm sure.

Honestly, why in the heck would they want to celebrate the travesty of their launch day!? Sure its gotten better now, but back then it was ridiculously bad, ah well...

@Khalus

To highlight how far they've come, I guess?

How far they've come? LOL, a year later and the game still isn't sub worthy and no PS3 version or even an idea of when the PS3 version is going to be ready...that's pretty sad.

Hey, I'm just guessing at intentions, not proclaiming their genius. (Though, to be fair, they have made quite a lot of progress when taking into account the hurdles and just how deep the problems go.)

The online installments completely ruined the FF franchise.

by this point they should just adopt the GuildWars pricing structure of "Free to play if you buy the box" and run with it, that *might* convince a few people who avoided it like the plague due to the launch reviews to give it a try and possibly even bring back a few others.

Bought this yesterday, installed it and it keeps crashing on startup. Updater doesn't even run.

Check your video card. Make sure it can actually run the game. I had the same problem until I upgraded my video card and updated the drivers. Anything less than an ATI HD 2900 or Nvidia 9600 means the game won't even boot up. Yeah, kind of silly really but the game looks gorgeous when you can use the high settings on the video side (if you can afford a really good card).

How is FFXIV? Is it actually worth playing? I was pretty interested in it before the launch, but after playing the beta, I was fairly turned off.

@Stall

Depends what you're looking for. If you have the game it's f2p right now so try it out. I was turned off by all the negative reviews at launch so I waited a year and now seems fine to me.
