Final Fantasy XIV Enables Holy Matrimony

FinalFantasyXIV-Introduces-Marriage

What was once an April Fool’s joke in Square Enix’s eyes has now become a profitable marketing venture for their MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV, which has been introduced to in-game marriages between love-struck male and female characters.

A heart-warming trailer introducing marriage to the game:

This matrimonial addition to the game naturally has a plethora of potential cash-shop items associated with it for those willing to splurge on their special day, although apparently no husband and wife special skills and bonuses – the update is available now.

    Was gonna say. They learned that lesson the hard way with FFXI. I would hope they didn't make the same mistake twice.

    You probably fap to hentai written by and drawn by men. So when the girls in hentai talk, Those words were a man's words. When she spreads her legs, a man is spreading her legs for you.

    A guy is making you cum.

    And I don't care because it's fantasy, you aren't fapping to the guy. You are fapping to the fantasy. So I don't see "2 fat hairy guys playing as lesbo catgirls" as two guys getting married in a game. Rather these are two guys sharing a fantasy about two lesbian catgirls getting married.

    And if I wasn't willing to share perverted fantasies with guys over the internet I wouldn't be in fucking sancom.

    Your argument is disturbingly coherent.

    Never did get the appeal of playing the opposite gender in MMORPGs. Tried it once before and deleted the character minutes later, kinda embarrassing. Have always played my real gender in MMOs.

    I play a female miqo'te. My friends had always played females because "why should I stare at a guy's butt all day?" which I never really thought about it like that. I just randomly decided to try mithra after having extra change potions, and stuck with it. Their animations are just a lot better than the humes, and male counterparts, plus, you can take screens in whatever pose and outfit you want for fap material, as long as you don't turn homo and start hitting on guys, or try to get items from them, then there's not an issue.

    I wholeheartedly agree, Silveria. If I'm going to be staring at someone's ass for hours on end, it may as well be a nice ass.

    My reasons why I always play female chars are these:

    1: I like eye candy, staring at a nice female ass is alot better than staring at some guys ass for hundreds of hours. Yes I know how pervy this sounds, but my female chars in these games don't do anything for me in that sense, even though they are pretty hot.

    2: Pretty much every game out there has males for the lead characters, finding a decent game with a female main lead is pretty hard. Outside of like tomb raider, and such.

    3: Girls kicking ass rule :)

    I don't roleplay or fake I am female, if someone asks I tell them I am male, and if you talk to me for a while its pretty damn obvious I am a guy irl, I don't try to hide it because well: its a damn videogame not a dating simulator. People take mmo's way to damn seriously, they are a game for fun, why does it matter what gender someone is irl when your playing some game? Mind you I do tend to be nicer to girls when I find out they are female irl (they get enough crap from people especally horney lonerhy teens), but if I don't know for sure I treat everyone the same.

    All in all, its a videogame, its not real, if you get creeped out by people playing the opposite gender in a game, maybe you need to get checked upstairs, cuz you may have some kind of mental issue.

    If it were a First Person, I could see playing the correct gender roll, but if you have to stare at a hairy man's ass as a third person the whole time, it gets kind of nerve-wrecking... At least when you get to look at a hot female's ass you feel much more likely to continue to play 'god' with her life. And let's just say that's reward in itself.

    I only play first person, but if I had to play third, that's how I'd roll.

    (I await the day Illusion releases Battle Raper III with Online play and customizable characters... There'd be a game that finally beats DOA5- (with Nude Crack)...

    I play japanese MMO and i obviously say "ore" to people not mistake. Some creepy players uses atashi, uchi etc... with stupid forced dialects.
    Feels really creepy i should say. Since obviously 99% of people that plays MMO are men.

    Actually like a lot of players plays with shemales to have a Waifu or basically speaking a "doll".

    If you ever bought a figure, etc. you will know what i'm talking about.

    I play strictly female characters if they're cute. I figured, if I'm staring at a an avatar for hours on end, it better fit the role and be pleasing to the eyes :)

    I play almost exclusively female characters as a guy including FFXIV but I don't role play myself into the character. I just see a good looking female avatar who's story I'm watching play out like a novel or a movie.

    You're not alone in that. What I've noticed is that all MMO/RPG players are usually strictly one or the other. I myself play almost exclusively female characters as a man myself and know personally several people who do the same.

    I also have friends who say as you do, that they just can't play as the opposite gender because it doesn't "feel right".

    Just think it's rather interesting.

    Don't forget FFXIV also supports pedo marriage. Those highlanders and roegadyn can also marry lalafel (physically 5 year olds).

    All this talk about Cat Girl X Cat Girl Played by Mano X Mano. What about us who play a catgirl next to his girlfriend who also plays a cat girl? Girls do exist you know.

    Free Companies, and they don't work like that, everyone is technically allied, there is pvp, but it's not Free Company based. It's pvp skirmishes between 3 Grand Company factions, qued by individuals, FCs members can que while in a group together, but only if they belong to the same GC.

    Player/Player marriage was always planned. The April Fools joke was a Player/NPC thing where you could court your favorite characters.

    wait a few days before gay, and lesbian activists protest for their right to marry in it even if most likely the actual gay people who play the game don't really give a rat's ass XD

    2014 > no same sex option

    Really now, this shouldn't even be something thats missing, sure adding it in to old systems is a pain however this was built using a modern game, there is literally zero valid excuses for that being missing

    The biggest travesty is that the Japanese think white is a good color for a man to wear. If you live in the real world, please never do this. You look like a gigantic fag.

    You would be surprised at how sexist the FF14 player base are. I was there since alpha, and that community keep bashing the idea of allowing same sex relationship in the game, by using the worst insults possible. That's the makn reason SE couldn't do it.
