I have to say the official beta forums is an amazing collection of White Knights, Legacy Elitists, Anti-Legacy Haters, Newblets and Mega Trolls. Hilarious reading, just remember to bring the popcorn.

Another big thanks to Tenchi from myself, this is the first MMO I've been excited about in a decade or more and I'm really happy I was able to snag a PS3 code this morning thanks to your warning. I've run into an unexpected problem though. My housemate only lives with me during the school year and he is the one with an HDTV. My CRT is excellent for playing older games and I usually don't need it for new games, but the text in the FFXIV Client is unreadable. I've gotta find a way to borrow a TV or maybe just live at a friends house for the weekend.

Also in my craze to get a Beta code from somewhere I ended up getting a second PS3 code so if someone wants one shoot me a PM. EDIT: And it's gone.

Little things you can do to make viewing text easier on old tvs is decrease the sharpness so the pixels don't get "too defined" if you will. Used to do that with games like FFX and Enchanted Arms cuz the text sucked.

Also, you could get with the times and buy an hdtv. Just sayin...

I'll try screwing around with settings, though I normally don't need too. I should probably get with the times,but that costs money I don't have.

Just busting chops for a lul or two. Try the sharpness and maybe get some luck. The problem is most companies are not catering to the lowest denominator (sdtv users...) so you're actually shorting yourself if the long run dragging your heels on an upgraded set. I know about shitty income, but you can get a crappy hdtv for under 300 bucks if you don't mind a smaller size. You could also try getting a component to vga adapter and use it on a computer monitor, though those can be pricey and you'd need something else for sound. Just a couple suggestions for the frugal consumer of today.

Got the beta invite thing sorted out so I can join in on the next test. Too lazy to benchmark at this point, I'll know when I log into the game and my computer crashes or something. =P

Also, saw this and I thought it was hilarious.

I ran the little benchmark program thingie and it actually said "fairly high" instead of "what are you playing on, a potato?", which surprised me.

The Secret World fries my graphics card every time I play it for more than 20 minutes. ARR I can run on near-highest settings with absolutely no problem whatsoever. They did an amazing job with the engine, I will give them that.
