Short answer: Yes
Not so short answer: I've tried many MMOs for what I think are a little more than ten years now, but none of them could grab my attention for more than one or two weeks not even playing with friends and family. Guild Wars 2 came pretty close, but since I only now in real life one person that has the game but stopped playing I play mostly by myself. FFXIV I think it's excellent to play alone or with people, but unlike most I've tried, this one makes is extremely easy to group, thanks to the Duty Finder.

Some people may complain about people who "don't know how to play" but honesty, the games gradually shows you the ropes on how to play. I personally never had a problem with a party.
So in the end, I recommend it, especially if you are a Final Fantasy fan.

This morning (after the patch and maintenance) I was able to create a new character on all servers. I created one on Hyperion and I think I will create one on Ultros to play with everybody! I will probably lag behind since my main is on Ixion and I'm loving playing a Conjurer but maybe I should give my pugilist a rest since it always seems risky to me playing a melee DPS.

Maybe I could create another Conjurer but instead use it for the secondary jobs. Of all the archetypes the only one left for me is tank but I really don't think it suits me but who knows, I thought Healer wasn't for me and I'm loving it.

edit: I read Klutz64 comment about the community he found on Hyperion. In the forums it seemed nice but since it was a newly created character I decided to make one on Ultros  to play with everybody, maybe we can make it the RPGFan home.

I made an Arcanist,  which will probably became a Scholar since I'm loving healing so much.
So, if anyone on low level ther would like to move along together I will also be there, even if not on the same city we can all hit duty finder together.

My character's name on Ultros is: Yoon Ah

Basically it means "Kingdom Hearts fans, please wait 6 to 7 years".

But with all honesty, I think it's alright. It's not as if they didn't release a bunch of KH games over these years. Sure not all of them are up to pair of what we saw on PS2, but Birth by Sleep was so good it even made a person who didn't like KH like myself to have that game as one of the best PSP games. I just got KH 3D but haven't even touched it yet, but I also heard a good amount of nice things about it.

I'm so happy about this, I loved this first game! There are soem of these rhythm games that just catch you off guard then when you realize you're playing them nonstop!

I was thinking here and I don't know if it's a good idea or not but why don't we all create alternates on one of those new servers. But this time we could all agree beforehand on one single server.

Since it is not always sure we can have access to our highly populated ones at least on the other we can have our RPGFan Free Company or at least our linkshell.

I have met some nice people playing the game but most are on duty finder so they just come and go.

Maybe we could make some sort of poll to decide or just let someone decide for the rest, as long as it is a low population server it should be fine for everyone to get it. And instead of going 100% with this character we would focus on a single job doing mostly party activities.

You guys liked fishing? I Leveled up to level 5 and I was bored to death. Mining on the other hand I loved.
I guess I'm really not the fishing type person. Neither in real life nor any game has anyone managed to make it interesting to me. Well, at least in FFXIV it doesn't take long to catch something.

There is something I don't understand, does the spot we fish in matter or just the bait ?

You already got a review copy? I just saw your preview and I'm baffled that the game is coming next month. I was planning to get this game with the SMTIV+FE bonus but I don'think I'll be able to finish SMTIV by then, maybe barely.
If by them I manage to finish SMTIV I think I'll just pick it up. There should be a time I can manage to clean my RPG backlog.

It feels so good when the only thing we have to worry about a good game coming west is what title they will use.

Holy shit... people are the WORST.
I'm doing under the armor as a healer and NOBODY touches the adds.
I keep running in circle every time because I have 4 skeletons and the caster on me because of healing aggro.
Nobody even tries to get them off...

I've never really played healer and this is not motivating me for it at all.

I have to say I understand exactly what you're saying. I'm playing a healer myself for the first time and man, there are some people that seem to not have a clue of what they should be doing. At least for me it has been 50/50 and fortunately all the times the tank knew what he should do.

I've heard there is one fight in particular where people have to actually work as a team, so probably after that we should have less people without a clue of what to do.

Who's on the PS3 version? A friend of mine has it and says targeting is kinda sketchy with the controller.. We still can't play together Cuz new toon creation is still locked: (

I've been playing a lot with a controller. Pretty much I use two computers to play the game, my desktop is the better one but I use the other one when I want to lay back, or even play it laying down.
I like a lot to use the controller to play when just killing mobs but like your friend said, when you actually want to target a person it get's a little complicated. So I'll probably use a controller when playing by myself and use the M/K when doing dungeons with other people, especially now that I'm running a Conjurer.

What your friend can do is plug a mouse on his PS3. I know it works because I tried in beta and it worked just like on PC.

Tonberry was actually the server I was thinking of creating a character on. Hadn't even done any research.

I tried Tonberry just now and it was full so I created on Ixion. Quite a lot of people on Gridania considering it should not be the most active time on the server.
I didn't talk to anyone as to check what language people should be talking at least it's smooth playtime.
73  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 26, 2013, 08:29:58 PM
From the little research I've done it seems Tonberry and Ixion are more populated with english speakers. Tonberry if anything may have a little more as it seems the Australian community is going mostly there.
Also, it should be pretty easy to log in, as the timezone is almost inverted for people in the US. From where I'm from it is exactly a 12 hours difference, so when they go to sleep it basically when I'm up, so the servers should have much less people when we from the west try to get in and it's going to be mostly populated by Japanese when we are asleep.

In the end, we get to play AND we don't stress their servers when they play, so it's not like we're ruining the game for them
74  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn on: August 26, 2013, 07:45:53 PM
I'm seriously considering playing at least for a while on a Japanese server. Not to bash or anything, quite the contrary. Since I have no real life friends playing this game and I play mostly solo I wonder why should I suffer so much when I want to play at night. Even here, which is a community I like a lot we are spread out across every server.

I heard the Ixion server has a decent amount of english speaking people so it shouldn't be hard to find some people to talk to. Hell, I might even take a chance and use my japanese, although I doubt it'll be of much use for the usual MMO terms, at least in the beginning.

If anyone else feels like having a 2nd character on a Japanese server we could try make it as a gather for us RPGFans.

Just picked up a 640 TI at Best Buy today since my GT 320 is dying on me. Here's hoping A) it fits, and B) it doesn't cause my computer to spaz out. Any advice? I usually buy all my computers pre-built and this is my very first time upgrading.

Besides all the good recommendations given, I have one because my cousin decided to buy a 660 and gave me his older 560Ti. I didn't have a single issue but he did. His computer became unstable some games exit for no apparent reason and pretty much everything was brand new. So the short answer was his "Surge protector". (Forgive me if the name isn't that one because I'm not sure how it's called in english, in the end I'll link a picture so you'll know what I mean). Long story short, he switched a regular one to a much better one and everything became normal, just like that, so Tenchi-no-Ryu, make sure your power supply of energy to the computer both "from the outlet"and "from inside the computer" is of good quality.

About the servers:

Leviathan - Tiffany Hwang
Leviathan - Cyril Elyon

Send me a tell if anyone's on there, running a LS with a few friends of mine.  Will be maining WHM, maybe SCH, and considering BLM and SMN.

It seems we can meet there! I was thinking of running a WTH Mage myself, but decided to try a pugilist in beta and ended up liking my Mi'qote so I'll be keeping her. Since I now plan on trying the class a little bit further we probably can play together until I go White Mage.
