Pity we have yet to receive the game, eh ronny. I played it when I was in the states last summer and its very very good. the only thing is, as with all MMORPG is that you need a sack full of free time to enjoy it and more importantly gain respect from your onlin piers….I’m sticking with Warcraft 3 for the mo….

City of Heroes (CoH) has gone down quite well here.
I am not too interested in MMOG’s, but if I was the choose one it would be either World of Warcraft, CoH or perhaps that Guild Wars one from Ex-Blizzard folk ArenaNet.

Ya, as I said you need masses of time, which some (working)people just don’t have… although I would manage to find the time for FF XI, it just rocks!.
In saying that though when Halo 2 comes out in Novenmber I’m taking a week of college so that I can play it all day every day

……For instance, any surface in the game (including parts of the character models) can be tagged as cloth, and the level designers can control the wind in any part of the level. So, on a calm sunny day banners on castle walls and character’s cloaks may gently rustle in the breeze, whereas on a stormy day, plain tattered flags and streamers will whip about in the storm.

News from the east…
Square Enix Ltd, the recently reorganised European division of the giant Japanese publisher, has announced that massively multiplayer title Final Fantasy XI will be available across Europe in September.
The title, which already has over half a million subscribers in Japan and the USA, will arrive for the PC platform along with the Chains of Promarthia expansion pack – which will cost extra for Japanese and US players, but will be bundled free with the European version of the game, as will the first expansion, Rise of the Zilart.
This will be the first title to be self-published by Square Enix in Europe; the company recently began a major expansion program in the area, and last week formally announced that formr Atlus USA president and CEO John Yamamoto is set to take over the reins of the European division.
No news has yet been forthcoming concerning the PS2 version of Final Fantasy XI in Europe; it was launched in the USA earlier this year, along with the PS2 hard drive, but with no sign of the hard drive ever being officially launched in Europe, the future of the PS2 title seems uncertain in this territory.
Like their Japanese and American counterparts, FFXI players in Europe will share a set of global servers – allowing them to play alongside players from other countries and continents. It’s not yet known whether the European version of the game will extend the automatic translation system, which currently only translates between English and Japanese, to cover other major languages.

September 16th, thats the offical European date for Squares online Opus, I was just wondering will anyone on the boards be getting it?, I know I willl be along with a few of my mates. I must say that this has taken over in anticipation from Halo 2, I simply cannot wait to start venturing in Vana’Diel. Hope to see some of you there.
