Eric, somehow, convinced me to pick up a copy of Final Fantasy XI. So far it’s been very irritating–it took overnight through several disconnects to download the 21,000 patches necessary.
I’m desperately trying to create a character at the moment. There aren’t that many customization options, are there? Still, one of the default Hume options looks like me, and that’s what I like in a character. All I know is that if those “trapped in a virtual world” books wanted to be accurate, they’d include a 200-page chapter towards the beginning where the characters try to create a username, only to repeatedly find that their choices have been already used.
If I ever start playing, I’ll let you guys know what I think.
