I've made fun of my friend who plays it non stop. That means I can't try or else I'll probably get hooked and by a hypocrite.

Do you still have to pay for a copy of the game in order to start playing or can you just start with no initial fee?

I just don't like the idea of paying an initial fee and then having required renewals for games. Either do one or the other.

How big is the client file?

There seems to be some problem with VilePlanet's hosting of the client. My "pre-registration" went through and I got the key, but I tried to download the client thrice and failed. The first 2 times, I got a 0-byte zip file, and the third time, I received a HUGE zip file with unknown size that's still downloading... it's up to 2.66GB now and going strong. I fear it may be downloading a huge stream of 0's.

Well, I mean for the non demo. E.g. is it PSO style where you can just download the client and play willy nilly when you give em your credit card.

Most definitely not. As far as I know, it's still $50 in stores. It may have come down to $40, but still...

Bleh. I can't justify paying near top dollar for a game and then having to essentially pay that again every 3 months. I like the idea of just having a new game entirely every three months better.
