I've been playing lately, but it reminded me why I don't play primarily mouse driven games much these days. My years of bad posture have caught up to me, and playing these kinds of games in long sessions really fucks up my right arm.
I like the materia, err Skill gem system quite a bit. Not very fond of the passive tree, it's far too large, with a very significant amount of sub par nodes. And yes, the desync is atrocious, although I've had far less issues with it, and a much better frame rate after switching to the steam client.
