Final Fantasy XIV - Is It Enough To Be Reborn?

Metal Arcade: Nate Gray writes:

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn's release is on the horizon, and early indicators have our interest piqued.

Final Fantasy as an MMO franchise seems almost cursed to initial failure. The original 2003 launch of Final Fantasy XI was met with disdain, surprising people with excruciating grind and difficulty aimed at encouraging party play, not including the myriad of server and social issues. It eventually found its niche audience and has since proven a moderate success with a stable, even fanatical, fan-base. Whether Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn can redeem the original release's terrible launch is yet to be seen, but early indicators have our interest piqued.
