During a boss battle introduced in the latest update to Final Fantasy XIV, a song plays that sounds a lot like Powerman 5000’s “When Worlds Collide”. So much so that the band is calling it “a straight up rip off”.
Citing the widespread disappointment with performance and poor communication of system requirements, Square Enix has temporarily halted sales of the Final Fantasy XIV Mac client. Good call.
After spending the better part of 2014 exploring other MMO avenues, in 2015 I’m getting back into Final Fantasy XIV, just in time for the massive two-part pre-expansion patch 2.5, “Before the Fall”.
