    Default Amusing rant about FFXIV

    This guy compares and contrasts the PAX demos for FFXIV and GW2. Pretty funny stuff. He also interviews Jeff Grubb, long time RPG guru, about GW2.

    Some bad language in the rant, be warned. The video starts with the FFXIV preview video...just keep watching it gets silly.

    It didnt hold my attention, it was laggy (and im running the best gpu on the market) .. its not very well designed, very linear content, I felt like I was playing Fable... The skill system is sad, the leveling system needs a revamp and the controls are far worse than all of these things.

    The combat system will be the doom of the game. One thing that clearly rang in my head was, "anime fans.." the characters who have cat ears and tails running around.. man, Square Soft has fallen since the days of FF2/FF3/CT/SoM.

    Thanks for linking that, had me in tears of laughter.

    The guy reviewing it spoke the truth the whole way through, and when the demo crashed? classic.

    Couldn't agree more with the comments about FFXIV in that video. Gave me a good laugh. Thanks for posting that ;)

    I like Spoony. He's been on my feeds for a few YEARS now.

    I do wish he would have toned down the fangasm over GW2 to check out Rift though

    Have to agree with you. I played the beta for a week and it's truly bad. I think this is one of the worst games I've played ><. I was actually pretty optimistic at first.

    From the controls through the menu, the mouse lag, the monotonous gameplay, crashing out of full screen, patcher issues, so many things went bad with this game ><.

    There are other games I got frustrated with lately like Mirror's Edge, but I still love the game because it has good points and the small frustrations are no big deal. But FFXIV is bad in every aspect, there isn't anything which isn't broken in FFXIV lol.

    Incorrect - hardcore FF fans will avoid it like the plague...

    The only people that will play it are people who think calling themselves
    "hardcore" FF fans means playing ALL Final Fantasy games regardless of how utterly garbage they are.

    Your framerate has little to no bearing on your latency.

    I was shocked when I got this beta download finished. A few of our guilds members were trying out the FF14 beta and I figured ohh what the **** nothing better to do.. Watching paint dry might be more fun. I have NEVER been so turned off by any MMO ever, and I have downloaded a few of the truely crap free to play games. The UI the gameplay, the Combat, ALL of it was horrid. It is almost as if they said to themselves " how can we make the most frustrating piece of crap possible" .


    If that was their goal they have a huge success.....
