you should give warhawk a try...i enjoy the hell out of that game. my friend tried to get me playing CoD4 but i don't want to immerse myself in a new game when i just got (or was about to get) GTAIV (which i think with the 1.01 patch, i can actually play now, even though i didn't think that was the patch that was going to fix my issue (launch 60GB)).
I have actually thought about giving it a try. I always notice you playing it, lol. As for CoD4, I really haven't gotten into it too much. It's more just for kicking friends asses during parties and occasionally online. I really don't see me putting as much time and effort into another game like I did with FFXI.
You know, that was the first thought that came to my head when I first noticed this thread...
how far would 4-5 mil go nowadays?
I think the gil is still a good amount. The gear though...holy crap. The prices of what was leet in our day has dropped to worthless. I mean...a freakin Igqira Weskit is 14k on the AH...it's become vendor trash. :O At least my +1 staves were still worth some gil. Those I kept, though. I worked the hardest for my BLM gear. Couldn't bring myself to part with any of it.
Wow, makes me wonder how much Kyo isn't worth now.
