Comment on Final Fantasy XIV “Made in China” Quality Goods by SpideyPHL:

Avatar of SpideyPHL

Usual SC trolling about FF, with some added anti-Chinese stuff added in for flavor. I’d be interested in finding anyone who doesn’t own anything that was made in China. Of course the comments aren’t much better, I’m so sick and tired of the so called old school “I was into FF before it sold out with VII/X/XII” idiots who make scene kids look positively mature.

That’s not to say FFXIV is a necessarily good game. As it is it’s got a lot of problems that I can only hope are fixed by the time the PS3 version comes out. Still, even as it is it’s still better than a lot of other MMOs I’ve played. Despite the constant bitching and hyperbole from the “fans”, I’ve yet to play an FF game that was really bad, but I’ve played some that were mediocre and many that were overrated (FF6 comes to mind on that front, followed closely by 7 and 9). And I agree that as a company Square was much better before Enix got involved and they started pumping out metric tons of remakes, but saying FF is dead or even injured just shows complete ignorance of actual business figures in favor of childish bitching, and XIII shows that if anything they’re more willing to try new things in the mainline games than they were in previous generatons.

Well, this is the internet so I shouldn’t be surprised.

    You’re joking right? Tell me you’re joking.

  • Top 20 Ideal Anime Sensei:
    Not quite, there’s a new GTO drama airing right now, so him being ranked this low is unforgiveable. Incidentally, I work with teachers in Japan and know some who actually fit these personality types. One of the ones I worked with last year was a walking moe bomb.

  • Inyutsu no Yakata Elf Obsessed Ero-Anime:
    I can’t be the only one that’s just completely turned off by how ahegao seems to be in every hentai lately, to say nothing of how they’re all going so far into being graphic that it turns out being kinda gross. And this is coming from someone who’s “loved” hentai for nigh on 20 years, but I feel like I can’t really watch anything recent because it’s just loaded with this ahegao fulfill every disgusting fetish in one video attitude. I guess it’s what hentai is pushed to when ecchi BDs are …

  • 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.
