So the open beta just went live on PS4, I figured what the heck, I'll give this a go considering how much the guys gushed about this game on the Random Encounter pod cast.
Oh geez, I guess I need to buy this game. In a bad way. So far about 3/4 of the way through level 4, and I haven't had this much fun in the early stages of an MMO since vanilla WoW days hanging out in Goldshire, slaying some wolves and the like.
Overall, the controller set up works pretty well, I figure I'd need a keyboard of some sort to type...Was very skeptical of playing an MMO with a controller, but it now kind of makes sense.
I figure if I only play this game for the overall story, I'd get my money's worth. It seems to channel FFXII in some ways, and I like what I see. April cannot come fast enough. Now I wish I'd ponied up the $10 for during the PSN sale for FFXIV for the free upgrade. Ugh, now I need to shell out $40+. Anyways, I think it'll be worth it!
