And when ps3 version is released, chances are, I will be too.
Just an update on how Rift is doing, since people on these forums might be interested to hear from someone actually playing it. The game is about a month old and new content is already being released for endgame. Class balance is a very large issue in the community since 1.1.6 came out a few days ago, but all MMOs have that problem. There are quite a few people canceling subs this month because of the patch, but that's nothing new. There are always cry babies in every community.
Cons: Even though the main selling point of the game is the idea that you have diversity in your soul trees, that means that there are effectively only 4 different classes, each with 8 subsspecs. You might be thinking that sounds awesome, but considering the fact that in any given situation, only one subspec and build are optimal. Which means much less diversity because, even though they tried not to have this happen, there are cookie-cutter specs for each class. I don't particularly like walking around in Stonefield and seeing 4 other warriors, each with the exact same spec as me because that's just the spec you need to make optimal use out of grinding and questing.
I'll be downloading FFXI tonight while I'm asleep.
