Partly, this is my fault. I went into the game with the absolute wrong expectations. I was thinking that I was going to experience a decently paced, action orientated game with an involving combat system, ala Demon's Souls. That was stupid of me. I took on these assumptions because I found options for a game pad while the patcher was patching, I neglected to realize it's still a Final Fantasy game, an MMO no less.
This should not be taken as an accurate appraisal of the game. By that, I mean my disappointment. To phrase it another way, I picked up Rock Band over the weekend hoping to jump into matches and camp with a sniper rifle. Doesn't make much sense, eh?
So what I will be doing, is going back to the game some time tonight. Personal obligations have gotten in the way of my making any kind of progress towards what I said I would do, and again, I am very sorry for that. So. Either late tonight, or sometime tomorrow, expect my write up of the game and of it's systems.
'nother thing, Skiddy set us up
UPDATE: I forgot to post the link. Derp.
