Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is looking pretty good. It has an art style that makes me wish I played MMOs. Unfortunately, playing it is a bit of a challenge since it released last week, as the servers have been at capacity and players are struggling to log in. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn director Naoki Yoshida explained, speaking to Polygon.
Refreshingly frank. "We wanted to be as open as possible with the players, because if you're open with the players, that's how you gain the trust and hide nothing," Yoshida said. "Tell them no lies. Once you do it, you see the results."
Yoshida also noted that the lack of servers and login issues should be remedied by today. Here's hoping. Square is also extending the week-long free trial for the game. Thinking about giving it a shot?
