    Default Gaming Media reacts to and reviews FFXIV launch

    In this thread we post links to gaming sites reviewing and talking about FFXIV. Try to restrict reactions to these articles until we got quite a few up.

    Gametrailers brings up that there isn't a player forum for players and Devs to talk about things.

    There most certainly was. It was the beta forum and there were hundreds of threads filled with complaints. And what did we get out of it?

    A hardware mouse.

    Reviews are worthless. Never bought or not bought a game based on some article some douche wrote.

    Red Flava (Japanese Fan site) had an early review out, but it highlights how I feel about the combat system http://www.redflava.com/2010/games/j...antasy-14-xiv/

    Douche, your post is worthless. Go make a thread where this insight is appropriate.

    Bad press is the best way to make SE react and fast. It's hardly worthless.

    This however was the worst review so far. All the good criticism hidden behind all the bullshit that comes with it.

    The game should and likely will get absolutely slammed in reviews, SE made so many dumb oversights and decisions. If the name Final Fantasy was removed from this and it didn't have the nostalgia factor going for it, I can't imagine more then a 3rd of the people who came back from the old days in my guild actually playing it.

    The hope is of course that reviews highlighting all the flaws that could easily be fixed (PS2 limitations aside) means they actually will, but it's SE so who knows.

    Why is it so hard to follow directions? If you are not posting a link to a review or article about FFXIV shut the fuck up. In this thread your opinion about FFXIV doesn't matter. Every other thread on this forum is perfectly fine with eating it up, but this one is specifically not about that. We want to know what people who get paid to write stuff and don't post on Blue Gartr think. (These people are mostly far removed from us, with almost none of them even paying much attention to FFXI.)

    Granted responding to reviews or articles is fine, but not if done like Krandor. (Which is to say he didn't do it at all, he just posted his own criticism of FFXIV.)

    Ah. I kinda had the feeling it was BRP, but I never found BRP to be this annoying before.
    can we still ban him?
