So it's finally arrived, FF14 was released today for PC only and while many will wait for the console version, I can assure you your better off waiting.
I participated in the open beta for FF14 and I have to say the game is done beautifully but that doesn't come without flaws. Playing through one of the three starting areas I noticed small things that need to be fixed, one of them being disconnected from the server and my quest disappearing and not being able to get it back. The entire game revolves around your single character being able to play as all classes and economy roles, such as blacksmith and carpenter, but that means you have 2 different type of levels. Your main level in the game is called your physical level, your class level is just named after your class and your stats and what you can wear all change when your class does.
I would say the console gamers might have it easier with it since by the time they get the game it will be patched correctly to fix most flaws with the game thus far. I will be picking it up shortly to give it a more in depth play through.
