ahah the "this is my joystick" ttle ain't my fault, I decline any responsibility :P

It's just a "army of darkness" related quote. "this is my boomstick" -> "this is my joystick". I told em it sounds dirtier than it is :p

Bleyd3132d ago

It sounds like the chant they were saying in the movie "Full Metal Jacket".

This is my joystick.
There are many like it but this one is mine.
My joystick is my best friend.
It is my life.
I must master it as I must master my life.
My joystick, without me, is useless.
Without my joystick, I am useless.
I must fire my joystick true.
I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me.
I must shoot him before he shoots me.
I will.

Good job Giuseppe! Final Fantasy 14 starts tonight, can't wait any longer!

Abriael3132d ago (Edited 3132d ago )

I'm quite excited myself. I already spotted the hardware mouse option in the client configuration :D I'm all downloaded, registered and ready to play.

Edit: yes, you're right, my friendly disagree-spammer, i'm actually not excited, i didn't see the hardware mouse, i'm not registered and ready to play. LOL.

I gotta say, unlike most of the pessimistic people around here, I'm really excited for FFXIV!!! I played the beta on my cousin's laptop, got hooked, and then went out and bought an Asus gaming laptop and now I'm ready to play tomorrow when I pick up the collector's edition after class! It's gonna be awesome!!!!!!

Sam Fisher3132d ago

open for the ps3? or just pc

Abriael3132d ago

just PC so far. PS3 beta will be announced at a later date.

shadowmoses6233132d ago

Open beta is done for PC and release of the collectors edition is tomorrow and sept 30 for the regular edition. Now on the PS3 beta there is still no date set for when the beta will come out they are still working on it but it should come out really soon.

TOSgamer3132d ago

Wow, so a company was finally shady enough to release a Collector's edition first and make people who only want to buy the regular edition wait. Not a big surprise it was Square enix.

Abriael3132d ago (Edited 3132d ago )

@TOSgamer: someone didn't follow the MMORPG market much, I see. Early access for collector's editions is a very widespread option in MMORPGs.

It's been done several times before. Aion and Warhammer Online are just two examples.

edit: regular edition will have access on the 30th.

TOSgamer3132d ago

Fair enough. I don't follow mmo's games at all. Just wondering when this will filter down to regular game releases.

lucifon3132d ago

Thats not the case, Aion was simply down to preordering to recieve the headstart - I was in it. Warhammer Online was a 2 day headstart for preordering the CE over the standard.
