So I have decided to go for Final Fantasy XIV. A couple of reasons actually:
FFXIV : 19.99 euros
ESO: 59.99 euros
FFXIV : Digital download via store
ESO: Digital download not available due to store maintenance … two days in a row for me. If you don’t want my money then just say so ok guys?
But ok meh, what ever.
I guess if I need my fix of Elder Scrolls I can always fire up Skyrim again, try it with a bunch of mods this time.
So next was downloading and installing FFXIV. And this is currently a frustrating experience. For starters, when buying the digital download, then downloading the game, and then creating and managing your account and linking a new game in it … dear god. It has been a long time since I had to spend so much time in different account pages / websites / subdomains … it’s like the 1990’s again. Needlessly complicated and seriously annoying.
Then there is this …
I hate that, you lazy goddamn cheap motherless sons of …
Is it to much to ask to update the download file to the latest installer? So you don’t have to go through this agonizing slow download hell? I’m not going to say how foolish I feel right now for buying FFXIV, because that would be really foolish. But this game better be goddamn amazing to play.
