Holiday Break

With my Final Fantasy career ending so quickly, and the holidays coming really soon.  I will be taking a break till the new year, with the Steam sale and other crap thats selling for basically free I will have something picked out.  Age of Conan is free till level 20, and I’ve heard the game has done a complete 180, but only till level 20.   Warhammer Online is free for tier1, and as much as I love Warhammer Online there is something about it that just burns me out and makes me not want to play.  Then there is Sony, well pretty much every Sony MMO is garbage and well its always fun to remember the good times of Everquest.  I always have to keep telling myself that it is not the same anymore.  Or you could suggest something for me to waste money on and document so you don’t have to.

That was unexpected

Well I guess I deserve this, but I cancelled my subscription to FFXI, because I didn’t want to get auto-renewed and have to pay for another month.  I guess when you cancel thats it, you don’t get the rest of your month.  So I could pay Square $12 or whatever for a month more, but really the game is bad and I was going to kill myself before the end of the month.  Pretty much the game is not noob friendly at all, and unless you are already playing with/have people to play with you are fucked for this game.  I imagine I could have put forth a better effort to talk to people, but I saw a total of 4 people and they spoke in moonspeak.  I can probably re-visit FFXI at a later date, but for now I’ll just say its still garbage.

Now I know this isn’t a fair assessment but for new people getting into it, they would be more screwed than I was, and a week isn’t a lot of time, but how is someone supposed to be encouraged to keep playing?  You are better off waiting for the new Final Fantasy MMO coming out in 2010 probably.

Final Fantasy XI

I decided to start with one of the worst.  Just to test my limits and see how far I actually go.

New direction and layout.

The old site was shit, lets leave it at that.

New plan for this.  I plan on playing a random shitty mmo for a month and try to do a bi-weekly update on how bad it still is and how I’m going to give myself an aneurysm from playing this shit, if I can manage to keep playing it for a month.
