Today is the official launch day for Final Fantasy XIV Collector's Edition purchasers, and since we technically count in that group, we're giving folks who opted to purchase the normal edition a glimpse of what they're missing.

Check back every week for new gameplay logs so you can see how much FFXIV I've played in order to come to the conclusions I eventually come to.

Until then, here's some expert box opening.

Oh, and I did redeem the Onion Hat code.
