Final Fantasy XI

Does anyone give me info about the new FFXI? I'm planning to buy the new PS2 hard drive and i just want to know how much is the average cost of playing and what will happen if your alter ego died in the game, can you still use it, and what if you wanna do something and you have to log off for a while, can you still come back with your group? tnx

avg cost for 1 character: 13 bucks a month
it's an additional 96 cents for each additional character (but since you can change jobs whenever you want in your mog house, the only reason to have alternate characters is to try out other races or to have a mule (more storage space))
when you die, you remain as a corpse until someone raises you or you decide to go back to your homepoint
all you lose is experience
almost any place can be accessed again if you get disconnected (some places like Burning Circles and Cloisters, are event based however)
you CAN rejoin your party if you log out, but it's likely that they'll replace you if you're gone too long(this is true for E-V-E-R-Y MMORPG)

You can only play it online, there's no offline mode at all.

the scope of FFXI is larger than any other FF
and it's definately the most time consuming
it also has more characters than any other FF
by the way, the HD comes with FFXI...

i played ffxi online for a month or two (on the computer). It was ok, but I just lost interest for some reason. It's a really cool game and all, the only downside is the immense amount of time between attacks (unless you're a class that specializes in faster attack). It kinda seems dumb to attack once, and then your character sits there for up to like 6 seconds before another attack. It just got frustrating sometimes, but it's fun.

I just re-installed the game and I'm trying to register with playonline again. The problem is I forgot my password. Does anyone know how I could go about retrieving my old password.

Its not like FF X-2 Battle mode... Bec. I tried playing FFX-2, and the battle mode is different from the rest of FF, you dont have to wait for an attack...you can charge the same time the enemy attack you... i think that was called real time battle.
