Comment on Final Fantasy XIV Player Populations At Death’s Door by SpideyPHL:

Agreed that it’s largely Wada’s fault. Since he took over the company has been less about quality IPs like it was before the merger, and more about bastardized spinoffs on portables. The KH series is a great example, a great strong franchise that had the power of its brand ruined by endless portable spinoffs instead of a proper continuation of the series. Even if they make a KH3, there’s so much that’s been added to a ridiculously convoluted canon that only a fraction of the players have tried, so most people will probably be lost, and many have lost interest since it’s been 5 years now.

Idiotic nationalist speculation based on misinformation aside, you’re absolutely right, they need to get back to making games, and making their own games instead of just trying to buy their way back into the western market by gobbling up western developers.

    Quite the opposite I think. Like the super hardcore fans who don’t want ff14 to “sell out” (and in the process keep it unplayably bad), there are these old school assholes who think anything Square’s made after 1996 is bad. FF7 is still by far the most popular FF game, and although it’s trendy on the internet to say that it sucks, that’s more hipster-ish “FF7 made the series popular, so now it sucks” kind of mentality. Now I really enjoyed Square games back in the day before they merged with …

    The new producer they put in actually has a really good head on his shoulders and has a great idea of where to go with the game. The problem is that kind of thing takes time, too long for most people to wait around. I myself couldn’t deal with the stupid market wards and stopped play for two months, but when I came back the Market Wards were at least usable and they’re going to put in an AH, and a lot of the changes have already made the game much more playable than before. Of course, assholes …

  • School Milk Banned “For Destroying Japanese Culture”:
    I eat school lunches in Japan but I’m lactose intolerant, it’s actually quite annoying having to drink milk every time because I get the shits afterwards. Still, while the kids complain sometimes you can’t argue with the nutritional benefits, and milk’s good stuff! Also, I disagree that it’s so bad with white rice. Rice pudding’s milk based after all. That this was even considered, let alone got through, is pretty scary.

  • Japan Whaling Ban “An Attack on Japanese Culture!”:
    I’m glad to see it. I’ve had whale here though, it’s delicious. I may care about the health of the oceans (if for no other reason than ensuring the food supply into the future) but I don’t blame them for doing it. It’s like a slightly fishy beef, awesome.

  • Seitokai Yakuindomo Nipple Exposure Climax:
    I’m down for it getting a third myself, but personally I kinda got tired of the humor. After a while you can see exactly where the jokes are going for the most part and it stops being as funny. When it is funny, it is really funny though.

  • Fate/stay night 2014 PV Arrives:
    Here’s hoping it’s NOT heaven’s feel. That one’s too long, too grimdark, and Sakura’s just not a good heroine. I wouldn’t mind a new route altogether that picked and chose some from all 3 routes, since even HF has some awesome moments in it. I do think that although it was pretty decent, UBW got a bit hosed storyline wise with that movie.

  • Ufotable’s Fate/stay night “Best Fate Yet!?”:
    Hoping it’s not HF cuz, bleh Sakura. I’d love a full series version of UBW or a remake of Fate, since the original anime wasn’t exactly well produced. HF and it’s overlong melodrama can stay in the VN.
