Shiiiny...

Now have Civ V in my cold grabby hands... or rather, in my disc drive, installed on my computer.

See y'all in... a couple weeks?

(Well, except that Final Fantasy XIV is also coming out Any Day Now, so I'll also be seeing those people... >_> )

On Palamecia, I hope. ; ;

If we can choose, then certainly, if that's where the Shirt Ninjas are!

Anything else I should know before it gets here?

Looks like you should still have access to shirtninjas.com, we have a new section for 14.

I'm hearing that the ClickandBuy service SE is using for credit card payment is kinda shady, so a better option might be using PayPal through the UltimatePay to buy Crysta. (yeah that sounds just as confusing to me)

Anyway, you can go ahead and set that up now, along with the bonus code from 13 if you got it. (You'll need a SquareEnix account if you don't have one yet.) The way I see it, the less things you need to register when it's live, the better, with how hammered the account servers will be.

As for the actual game, SE's official page is up and has some good basic info.

Oof, yeah, got my SE account updated, bought some Crysta. Thanks for the heads-up. Should have my game tomorrow!

Are you in yet?

Yeah, only for a little while though. Have class from 5:30 to 10:45 :(

Mornings or evenings? I'm assuming evenings since I can't imagine starting class that early, but...

And if so, I'll probably be wandering away a lot of evenings for making dinner, chatting, etc etc. anyhow. At least, once I get through the first period where I'm practically glued to the monitor... >_>

Now just must remember: Palamecia!

See you tomorrow I hope!

Evening. On Wednesday I have a 10- 11:15am then nothing until 5:30-8:00pm then 8:15-10:45. So I preordered mine at the gamestop Zendell manages (which is close to my school). Picked it up and came home during the time between morning and evening classes so I could install and update. (picking it up and hanging around school for 5 useless hours would probably have made me go crazy)

So I assume you're Kaeli? Any other names I should be looking out for?

And woohoo, linkshells are back... hope I can get hold of one, assuming we have one at start! I seem to recall them being pretty pricey for starting characters in XI...

I'm Kaeli Lythakoh, haven't had a chance to get into the LS yet. Sci should probably have made it by now. He's Sci Gauss if you find him first. We'll also have a list at shirtninjas.com *hinthint*

Hrm, aaah, there it is! It took me a bit to realize that the Aetherite Crystal forum was really just general discussion. :p

It's the same as the "Home Point" for XI. :P

Well, "Home Point" just seems more natural in the forum context. :p

How did your downloading of the updates go last night? Mine's going very stop-and-start, and I'm assuming it's from congestion on their end, but it's hard to know! Grrr. Wonder if there are any mirror sites to download updates from yet... more to the point, if there are *safe* ones.

I use µTorrent, as I see you've heard about already. (sorry, was in class and I checked forums before my email when I got out ;) Plus I also had to find a different building to sit in, the wifi sucks in Science Hall)

It's very easy to do, and safe, as you're getting parts of your files from thousands of other people.
