Several of us still play Final Fantasy XI, on the Leviathan server.  As far as the UI goes, it's still a PS2 game at heart.  Playing the game with a gamepad on PC is almost mandatory for a fluid experience, at least in my opinion.

As far as partying, invitations are hit and miss depending on the time of day.  One of the biggest problems people had was sitting in town doing nothing while waiting for a party.  Big mistake.  There are things that can be done in between leveling parties.

If you're aiming for melee/mage hybrid, the new Blue Mage class is probably your best choice.  However, you'd need to level up another class to at least 30 and own the new expansion in order to pursue this class.

Regarding billing, if you sign up on the 30th, you'd get billed for 1 day's gametime.

If you finally do decide to get the game, just say the word and we'll get you a worldpass to Leviathan, and probably a linkpearl so you can communicate with us.

There's not a lot of music because this is all from the beta client.

Everything feels larger than PSO, but it's still the same basic mechanics.  Anyone going into the game expecting MMORPG styled persistant worlds is in for a rude awakening.

The Japanese and US servers will also be seperated.

There isn't one of course, but social studies textbooks spoonfeed this seperation of church and state bullshit to students as early as 2nd grade, and so people will continue to misinterpret the first amendment.

Not at all, actually.  I used to be a staff member here, starting as far back as 1999.  My post count is low due to a board wipe several weeks ago.  If anything, I darkened my own name when I was a tyrant on these forums back when I ran the show.

FYI, I was the one that bought Segata Sanshiro Shinkenyugi.  I'm still eyeing that copy of Phantasy Star Collection on your website, too.  I used to own it a long time ago, but sold it due to money issues... but now I want it back.  Need to wait for my next check to come in, though.  We'll see.

I've purchased from these guys many weeks ago, and they're legit.  Just thought I'd throw that out.

There's now more screenshots and a new video in those links.

Crapload of PSU stuff.

Videos of low level combat and other stuff.
Assorted screenshots.
Music that I extracted out of the client.

Enjoy.

I'm on it.  Meet me on Universe 8 tomorrow morning (or late late night for you if you're on the west coast).
2336  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Ultima Topic on: April 20, 2006, 04:37:22 PM
Ultima IV would be my first RPG, on the Commodore 64/128.  I never did beat it due to a corrupted dungeon disk, but I enjoyed the game immensely.  It also happens to be the game that made me a game music fan, since the Commodore version of the game came complete with a full musical score by Kenneth Arnold.  Really beautiful, though short compositions.

Thank God, those boomerang shaped controllers were queer like gay.

Wow, it's like 2001 all over again!  GameCube coming like what?

I don't do mindless power leveling... I just do quests back-to-back.  As far as catching up, there's no need.  The game has a mentoring system, so I can drop back several levels with ease.  All skills and equipment scale back accordingly.  I'm not that far ahead anyways.

Play whichever would be more fun for you.  If you want a bit of nuking ability with the ability to heal really well, play a warden.  I played one to level 22, and I can safely say that they're pretty strong.  I just ditched the spellcasting since it's never really been my thing, I guess.  Melee is where it's at for me.

My character is Meicyn, so we can meet up whenever, assuming you go evil.

I haven't quit, though I've rerolled a zillion times.  Vandal quit on me (not surprised), so meh.  I play an evil character though... a human bruiser.

Of note, since you're getting into the game... make sure to download all the extra content you can and make the game as immersive as possible.  In the Everquest 2 launcher, after the play button shows up, click on preferences and enable all the optional audio voice packs.  There's a good bit of downloading, but it's totally worth it.  The extra voice acting is really good, and it definitely enhances the atmosphere.  Skeletons saying stuff like "your eyes are so pretty" in text isn't half as creepy as actually hearing them say it.



Speaking of atmosphere, after playing both good and evil, I definitely prefer the evil side.  Despite Freeport looking like a dump in comparison to Qeynos, the characters there are infinitely more interesting, since they're all busy stabbing each other in the back and being generally nasty to each other, with you being the go-between that kind of helps things run their course.  You have a few psychos too, and some of them are fully voiced, leading to some amusing moments.

All of that definitely beats out delivering baked goods and someone's bow across town...
