The Trial of Final Fantasy XIV (PS4) - Day 10: Crafting 'til 5AM? Addiction Confirmed

We've started playing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on the PS4 here at Short Pause, and we want to tell you all about it! Every copy of A Realm Reborn comes with a free 30-day trial of the subscription based MMO, and we intend to put ours to good use. Over the next 30 days, we’ll chronicle our exploits in the land of Eorzea in explicit detail, regularly updating you of our progress and where we stand, before eventually delivering a verdict as to whether it's worth it to start paying for this game via a monthly subscription. Ten days in, and once again we meet up with the highly attractive, and even more deadly, Kandy Kane! (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PS4)

I will be getting a MMO for PS4, but I am waiting for ESO to finally decide which way to go.

Despite how much fun I'm having with FFXIV, I'm still pretty interested I'm ESO. I spent an absurd amount of time playing Skyrim, and a MMO based on that game just sounds sexy as hell!

I got ESO and was pretty disappointed with it.

-Dupe bugs killed the economy
-Mounts are excessively expensive to force you to get a CE
-Bots run rampant it's common to see 15 camping a mini dungeon boss making it impossible to get loot
-Uninspired theme part quests that are often broken
-People selling werewolf/vampire bites
-Every dungeon is a square... seriously... well 99% of them.
-The UI is horrible, you'll have to get mods
-The research function on crafting reminds me of F2P games that make you wait days to finish.
-it's pretty ugly
-you have many skills but can only use a few
-you have to follow npcs while they walk slowly from place to place in missions
-pvp is basically guildwars 2 pvp

Hopefully a lot of that gets fixed because I'd love for it to turn out better... I just don't have much hope for it. I had a horrible experience with this game as a healer with UI add-ons. Playing it on the PS4 and not having them sounds like a cruel nightmare. The little skyrim compass they use will become your least favorite thing ever.

You know ESO came out right and ummm...yea you can just use google from here :/ (don't wanna be the bearer of bad news)

I personally have not played it nor was I really looking forward to it. Though after reading a few things and watching AngryJoe's video I think I will stir clear.

All of the bells and whistles he puts in can get annoying, but for the most part he's pretty good at melding player review and critic review into one.

Crafting in ff14 is very fun but can get expensive fast

It really is a great game. Gonna have to pick it up for the PS4.

Are there many people playing online ? More or less than phase 1 beta ?
TheDude79  +   489d ago
I wasn't in the beta, but in the Marlboro server there's a ton of people. I thought I read that there are already 2 million subscribers out there, so it sounds like a healthy amount of people

Oh wow that's good to hear
