I found one copy in GameStop.

I'd wait for the servers to expand before I buy it if I were you.

I could barely play this weekend, but this game is really fun and am enjoying the time I can play.

They are supposed to be upgrading the server capacity sometime this week.

Looking forward to playing on an actual NA server.

We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Since the beginning of official service on August 27, 2013, the number of users attempting to access the game has significantly exceeded our initial estimates. While we are pleased to see support for the game reach far beyond our expectations, the servers were not prepared to handle this influx of players. As a result, our servers have been pushed beyond maximum capacity. In order to allow access to as many users as possible, we have implemented login and character creation restrictions. We understand, however, that these restrictions have greatly inconvenienced our players.

To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance from September 3, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. to September 4, 2013, at 3:00 a.m (PDT), for the purpose of increasing the number of available Worlds, reducing stress on the Duty Finder servers, and increasing the number of concurrent logins allowed for each server.

Because login and character creation restrictions have hindered our ability to provide quality service, all FINAL FANTASY XIV service accounts will receive an additional seven days of free play time. Furthermore, users who have yet to enter their registration codes will receive an additional seven-day trial should they register before 11:59 p.m. (PDT) on September 9, 2013. Moving forward, we will continue monitoring the servers to ensure that quality service and support are provided in a timely manner.

The additional seven days will be reflected on service accounts after maintenance has concluded on September 4, 2013, which can be confirmed by accessing the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Mog Station.(http://sqex.to/Msp)

We thank you again for your patience and understanding as we continue to address these issues, and look forward to your continued support of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

I might get rid of one. It was what I thought I needed to be able to go to keyboard/mouse. I'll probably make one bar combat, one support, one shared skills. Still tweaking it all.

Let's just hope they get this thing fixed. Could you imagine if everyone woke up to login errors again in the morning? The meltdown would rival the rant on 1/10/2012

The game has been essentially reconstructed and a lot of what I considered terrible idiosyncrasies that were carried over from XI have been removed in favor of mechanics from other games, like Guild Wars 2 and Rift.

Without having gotten to experience much of the content/features due to crippling server issues, I still have found the game satisfying and exciting when I could play.

I still maintain that Square has shown no capacity for coherent or interesting storytelling since the merger with Enix 10 years ago, and I am not biased against JRPGs. I have ended up disliking a lot of them in the current console generation, but I think that has something to do with low-effort pandering to weeaboos on the part of developers.

Most of the cutscenes are poorly written and exessively animated for my tastes, but there are some non-plot-centric quests that have surprisingly good text localizations. There are intelligent and funny references to other Western media, tongue in cheek objectives, and a handful of characters that break the fourth wall in a refreshing way.

Combat is extremely smooth... the TP system is no longer completely backwards and you don't have to autoattack on martial classes for 2 minutes before you can unleash something that does actual damage. It's been replaced with Limit Breaks, which add to the overall classic Final Fantasy nostalgia.

Nostalgia is not always the best thing for a piece of media, as you well know. It wears off and only its contemporary merits are left to hold it up. But I have to say, I melted in Yoshida's hand when the Crystal Theme started looping during character creation. It all feels like a return to 16-bit era form, and I think that's the best thing for Square in the wake of the XIII series.

frick being concise, because this is the meandering yet balanced review that you deserve. I want to make sure I can shape your impressions of the game before the noseless-child-and-cat-ear-lovers come in here with their brony-esque devotion to the product (this is an absolute troll). I hope you decide to pick it up once the servers have been expanded and the game is available for digital download again.

What do you hate about it? I customized the placement a lot and I'm still working with it.

It's a pretty standard MMO UI. Fits with the art style, at least. I like that the dot grids in the lower right corner represent inventory and equipment.
