Forget about FF15. Play FF14 instead y'all.

I can't do it. I can't justify paying full price for a game that I have spent over 300 euro on subscription alone aloy with the 120+ for the other two expansions. Nah, they've lost me on this, they could at least offer a three month subscription with the expansions or some shit like that, or drip the price to reflect the sub fee, I'll only end up rushing the game because of the sub fee and it'll be less fun than it should be. Greedy bastards.
