Anyone had their PS3 go into airplane mode during the beta? I had this problem with Black Ops a couple of weeks before it (and thought it was Black Ops related, pretty sure I've heard reports about PS3s not liking BO very much) and now I just got it in FFXIV. I've had to hard-reset FFXIV before so I'm thinking some dodgy code might have something to do with it, it is beta after all. But I'm worried that my PS3 might be dying. just got a keypad and everything!

@brn Mine was like that during TLoU, but it's been fine during FFXIV. My optical drive motor is starting to go though
Ok, I finally did that party quest (Sastasha) that I've been sitting on for over a week; the Duty Finder's pretty bloody handy, eh? Even if I was waiting for a match-up for twenty-odd minutes.
I'm finding it hard to keep up with party chat using the soft keyboard, so I think I'm going to look for a cheap-ish BT keyboard...
You'll get a lot if use out of it if you plan on playing in the longer term, you'd be best getting a good one.
Always had it on my lap when I vegged out with XI on the Xbox. Can't be doing with sitting on the PC all the time I played.
Not tried any of the dungeons or the dungeon finder myself yet, didn't manage to get enough time to myself to sit and see about it. Waiting for Phase 4 now before I do anything else, hopefully they don't leave too big a gap between P4 end and official(pre-order early access) open, don't wanna leave it too long to progress.
@Folant I've had this in my Amazon basket for a couple of weeks now. I want something with proper keyboard layout and decent key travel (unlike the clicky buttons on the dualshock chat-pad thing) so I can touch type.
I'm kind of feeling the same, I've barely touched it during this test period; it just doesn't seem worth it considering the impending wipe. I've seen enough to keep my pre-order in place. Actually, I even upgraded my pre-order to the limited edition.

Fuckburgers. I forgot to play this weekend as well. I guess I'm just distracted with a combination of actually enjoying Skyrim and having a puppy.
When's phase 4 start?
Next letter from the producer is 8th Aug, my guess it then, or on the Friday(9th).
and this is Sonitus Jazz at the end of Phase 3.
T_T He will be missed.
better get yours up before the 17th, beta for the lodestone ends too.
I'm really looking forward to the release of this - and lots of other people are as well.
Looks like they've restored faith in it. Hurry up august!
Fare thee well, Khroma Midgard, we hardly knew ye.
Now hurry up Phase 4 so I can create Khroma Midgard II!
out of interest - does the PS3 version look good? Is there cross platform servers and is the game engine smooth?
Its a toss up - but i'll probably go for PC, but it wouldn't take much to change my mind!
@ZuluHero It does look pretty good, though more from a design perspective than technical ability IMO. Obviously it's not going to look as nice as a linear single player game would, but it looks good. As for how smooth it is, in the first test period of phase 3 it felt a little jerky, but the following week it seemed (to me at least) to be running unlocked, and now it's perfectly smooth. I've definitely seen improvement as the phase has gone on.
I'd like to be able to play on both, but I can't get the PC version to recognise my graphics card, so it defaults to the integrated graphics and runs like crap
EDIT Oh and yes, it's cross-platform.

Oh! I forgot to mention something - I had a lovely fan-service-y moment yesterday: I had to beat up a bunch of thugs a merchant was setting on some poor woman, and the music was a remix of this!
Actually, it could've been this one:
It was late, and I should have made a note of it. Either way it made me smile.

Yeah that part was amazing Ror! Heh, that merchant...

@Ror1984 was the FF2 battle theme - has it in the background (and also some new armour sets they're adding in).
@Slipstream It was brilliant! I was really hoping to put an arrow between that merchant's eyes though! Hopefully there'll be many more little fan-service moments in there to find
@PsychoPingu Aha! Thanks for that Ooh, that Dragoon armour...
I'm definitely going to have to add XIV to my FF OST collection.
I'm assuming the OST in the limited edition will be one of those abridged 'arrange' versions.
Seriously, I think this game might have the best soundtrack of the entire generation. My friend captured a whole bunch of it and put it to MP3 and I've been listening to nothing else for a straight week, almost every hour of the day. In fact I had to go the ear doctor the other day, because apparently I crammed so much ear wax in my ear from never taking the headphones out for a solid week that it hardened inside and clogged my ear up, so I had to get it cleaned and she said no earphones for at least a day and I was dying all day yesterday to listen to it again, but I couldn't. Now here I am and I can listen to it again and its pure bliss (especially when you put it together with the FFXI soundtrack and mostly only include the soothing songs, its like the ultimate relaxation in your brain).
GOBBEDLY GOOD SOUNDTRACK, YUP, UH HUH!
Can't for the life of me remember what track it was, but there was one that was almost, almost as awesome as Sanctuary of Zi'Tah from XI.
Other than that, I've not paid much attention to the music, aside from the jingle at the start of the battle music. Awesome throwback, instant nostalgia.
Bit old, but Final Fantasy XIII stuff coming to XIV.
Not gonna lie, that Mithra costume in FFXIII-3 is a little bit cute.
And by cute, I mean yes.... I want to see much cosplay of it.
@Folant The Lightning Miqo'te? I .. don't know what to think really. It seems so at odds with the character.

Square are really pissing me off throwing Lightning in FFX/X-2 HD and FF14. One of the worst games in the whole series (XIII) they're now milking for all its worth because Lighting is Japanese fan's favourite FF girl (according to a facebook poll).
They used to be one of my favourite developers but they are starting to become a joke.

how the fuck are they shoehorning her into FFX/X-2? that sounds blasphemy.
Lightning = Jenova
Calling that right now.
But that's another topic.
FFXIV. Is it August yet? Any news on how the pre-order early access is gonna work on PS3?
Are they putting her into FFX/X-2 HD? I haven't heard anything about that, but they did tease a Yuna costume for her in Lightning Returns.

I actually have no problem with Lightning whatsoever, she's my favorite FFXIII lead though so...BIAS MUCH!
Still, the hate towards her is unfounded she's not going to suddenly jump onto your screen, kick your character out the way and scream "CONTROL ME!!!!" The constant bitching about her is so annoying...
I'm not really a Lalafel fan but seeing that one dressed like Light...it actually works for the little bugger.
