I have not pre-ordered but I am definitely going to purchase at least one copy and possibly up to 20 or 25 copies of this game to multi-box.  If the game has all of the features that I like in an MMORPG, I will go all out on it.  WoW has reduced their features recently and caused the loss of 1.3 million subscribers.  Some say it's the direct result of what Ghostcrawler did to remove things like /follow from battlegrounds.  Whatever the reason, that game is still number one in terms of game play options.  The next game that is released that has all of what that game has, plus more; will beat it!  To date, no massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) has been released that contains all of what WoW has so no one has been able to beat it.

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

As someone who played at launch and continued to do so until the game was brought down, I just want to say something along the lines of "get over it".  xD   But honestly, I know how bad the first version was.

 

That development team is gone, and the new one has apologized profusely and went into great detail of their hubris and called themselves stupid.  They also gave the game great updates, made it free to play for a year before charging and took it from the worst MMO to a solid experience with one of the best advancing story elements via patch (and in terms of villains introduced) that I have ever played in a MMO.  

 

Since then I've been taken by their words, their humble nature and most of all the work they've shown that they can do.  They're offering the boxes cheap for newcomers, giving them for free (along with free game time) to players who had it and have spent tens of millions to not only completely redo the game and engine (as opposed to neglecting what was wrong and just making it a F2P cash grab) but also give a superb experience to players of the 1.0 version knowing they would take the version down and such work would be lost.   Not to mention the splendid ending cinematic they gave for their players at the end of the year long story they frequently patched and progressed.

 

Square admitted to not taking the MMO genre seriously with the release of the first version, and have since cut no corners and spared no expense to make things right not only for their fans but also their franchise.  They are probably one of the companies that I respect most nowadays what with reading every letter from the producer and the stories they shared of how the first was made and the journey of making that playable with frequent player polls and actually listening to players for the second version of the game A Realm Reborn.

 

The fact that the second tour video looked great is also a nice reinforcement in my respect for this remake.  With all that they did to reach out to me as a gamer and final fantasy fan, it is only suiting that I give them at least an opportunity to show me what they've made since they will give me a free copy of the game.  If one were to let the past judge their future, then it would be a shame as they could miss out on something that they may genuinely enjoy.  If one cannot forgive when ample apologies were given, then I again feel sorry as they may miss out of a great many things in life if they're prone to grudges.

 

They paid for their folly by practically condemning their most popular franchise with negative associations and it also costed them tens of millions.  But when you take a look at it, they took the path less traveled when faced with such adversary.  I would hope many would do the same and give them a second chance.

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

Power without perception is spiritually useless and of no true value

The only way you should not give this game a chance is if you prefer FFXI, otherwise you will be missing out. I didn't play 1.0 but I got into beta 2. The game is very solid one of the best looking mmo's ever (and will be on the market when it launches). This is going to be a beloved title and be the first FF mmo that isn't just with a niche following. They aren't doing anything to reinvent the wheel per se but they are doing everything right. You will be losing your money out of ignorance if you bought the first one and didn't at least try this one. Hell they are giving it to you  for free. That alone should be worth trying it.

Any mmo worth its salt should be like a good prostitute when it comes to its game world- One hell of a faker, and a damn good shaker!

Cut your nose off to spite your face, really?  Yes the first installment was diabolical even I quit after a few weeks and SE recognized the damage it done.  I went back a few months later and enjoyed all the content that was implemented.  Yoshi P has done a great job with new client and has been in touch with the players via forums and even in the beta his character appeared and answered lots of questions from players, a new live stream is coming that will be broadcast in English this time.

I've already preordered ARR collectors edition for under £50, the original CE is selling up to £99.

If you bought into the original game then you can try ARR for the first 30 days, nothing lost in that sense.

What I don't understand is if people like the OP have no interest in buying ARR then why make a thread? or show any interest in the game by replying to the thread, its like telling people you are not interested but secretly telling yourself, "well I am really".   Silly, childish and nonsensical.

This game is so off my radar, and i dont plan to play it at release, despite the fact that i have thox locked away somewhere deep in a closet...  Maybe its childish, but right now i really dont feel like returning and reliving the world that was released in such a painfull state. Thats how bad it was at release.

 

I just cant live with the idea... i am sorry but this is the only company that somehow totally ruined it by me, not going to spend another dime.

It's off your radar and yet you post about how it's off your radar . You are my kind of guy. KEK!

I played during beta of 1.0 but in the end I wasn't happy about the gameplay and decided against buying it even though I loved FFXI. I think unfortunately at the time FFXI was so new that I looked past a lot of it's issues. MMO's have become more mainstream and cater to people that don't have a lot of time like myself.

 

So that being said I'll give FFXIV ARR a chance since it's got the visuals of a FF game but the gameplay has been changed enough to be more akin to the more popular mmo's of today. I think unfortunately I'm more of SE\s target audience; I enjoy the copy cats because many of those features are things I feel streamline my gameplay experiences, just wrapped up in a pretty FF package.

you bought 1.0 and as it was mentioned before you will get 30 days to try it out, there is an open beta also so in your case you have a darn lot of time to give the game a check up and see if the new build lives up to its hype.

 

I for one preordered the shizzle out of the collectors edition.

 

Also if you are wondering. I did beta test 1.0 and was so unimpressed i didnt even bothered with the open beta heck i did not spend much time as a close beta tester, for me it was to bad to play. I have been watching the progress of AAR and seeing all the changes go by which have sparked my interest.

I bough the CE for original and it was the worst MMO i had played in years. Absolutely awful.

Since it costs me nothing again and they are giving me a lot new CE stuff i will download it and see how it goes.

They can not afford a flop second time so they are the one who should be worried. If it sucked again i will simply take my money somewhere else.

Although i don't see much hope for a P2P MMO in today's market.

Final Fantasy XIV was bad at release, but was amazing during the few months before they took it offline for Realm Reborn.  I picked it up for only $9.99 after the free period ended and was thoroughly impressed.  Honestly, I liked the game so much that I'm concerned about whether Realm Reborn will be an improvement or not.  You shouldn't dwell on first impressions with MMORPG's as they tend to improve rapidly.

Tell that to Tanak who got sacked that 'first impressions' do not matter. If the game was really that huge of an improvement than why more players didn't come back? because in MMOS you seldom get a second chance.

More players went back than anticipated when they restarted subscription, there is evidence on that, where is your evidence that players didnt go back?

Common sense? ever heard of a successful game being shut down in favor of another version of same game? if they had lot of players and were making profit on subs why would they work their asses off to make a new version of FFXIV?

It's been like three years since the 1.0 debacle. How can you possibly still be upset about that? Some of the posts on this site really make me wonder how posters can cope with the trials and tribulations of real life if they're so easily upset, disappointed, and angry with something as trivial as an online video game. 

Maybe they're perfectly reasonable adults, but for some reason act like angsty teenagers when it comes to video games. I'm not trying to be a dick, but it's ridiculous in a sad sort of way.

I will wait until NDA is released and release is closer to decide.  It seems they should be dropping it soon..?

According to the beta roadmap (accessible on their website) the NDA will be PARTIALLY lifted on the commencement of Phase 3 (Early June, anyone with a Square Enix can play, free to get, easy to do) Phase 4 will be the open beta, starting in the beginning of August and running straight into the release August 27th.

Played in 1.0 Beta and even bought the 1.0 CE which i regretted for a while but after seeing how the game improved from total garbage to an actual decent game under Yoshi's lead, i decided to Pre-order the PS3 version.

 

Since you already bought the game before, you could atleast try it out during Beta and the free time you get before passing it off as another failure.
