Final Fantasy XIV beta

Anybody else get in?  I'm not too excited about it, but I'll be enjoying the beta for a while to see how it shapes out.  I'm on the Behemoth world server, character name Torin Fu'uma.

The beta's down for a while until allegedly the next weekend right now.  But I don't know, it's all very traditional.  Accept quests from people with big exclamation marks over their heads, battles are all auto attacks with special activated moves thrown in, and nothing really innovative stands out.  The current frame rate leaves something to be desired and there's often a strange delay in your actions and animations.  It kind of feels like an out of place dinosaur.

I guess there's comfort in familiarity, but really, right now I can't imagine having to buy the game and pay monthly on top of that for it when there are other MMOs out there with better pricing systems and more ingenuity.  But we'll see, I guess.

Yea?  Let me know when you make a character, then.

I'm enjoying the free beta, but I don't know if this is currently something I'd pay for.  It's a highly traditional MMO with few innovations that I've seen so far, but they still have a lot of features left to turn on, so we'll see.

No, it's down.  I heard it'll be back up for the upcoming weekend.  It would be nice if they actually posted these things in the client news when you boot it up instead of news that makes it seem like it's still active.  Apparently, it's all on the forums, but I usually don't bother with those.

You think they'd use the client to pass all needed info on beta or not. I'm just spoiled to testing Everquest one and two expansions packs for Sony, always saw alerts in client and email lol. All I got out if Square was a welcome message in my PS3 messages and emails confirming my account is active. No forum links to give my take on things or anything... Kind of blows since I like putting in my thoughts on how quests are written as a writer.
